We’re so grateful for the talent and creativity of six local designers, who made Girl Scout Cookie-inspired fashion to celebrate a century of Girl Scout Cookies! Check out the stories below of #CookieBosses who got to meet local women business leaders who became fashion models for the day to highlight our Design Your Dream Cookie Couture campaign, which showcases the amazing things girls do in their communities and the world around them, all thanks to cookie money!
Our Cookie Couture exhibit will be on display on the second floor Pacific Place until March 31, 2017, so be sure to come see our full gallery space, complete with photos from the campaign, cookie displays and more!
Thank you to David Jaewon Oh, our amazing photographer, for the photos you’ll see below.
Inspired by the ways in which chocolate and mint are out of this world when combined to make a Thin Mint, designer Jamie Von Stratton created this Thin Mint Galaxy Goddess dress. Each mermaid scale is cut out from an actual Thin Mint box, and then spray painted by hand. In the photo with her are local Girl Scouts who are part of a LEGO Robotics team! This photo scene beautifully showcases the ways in which STEM is a part of our everyday lives, whether in outer space, on a robot or engineered onto a gown!
Beautiful hand-embroidered Girl Scout Cookies adorn this whimsical Cookie Fairy Gown, created by Rachel Vala of Class Act Tutu. This birthday party scene sets the stage for Birthday Dreams, a local organization that gives free birthday parties to homeless children, and celebrates the hard work Girl Scouts do to donate money and supplies through cookie sales to homeless shelters across western Washington.
Danial Webster created this beautiful s’mores inspired gown to showcase our newest Girl Scout S’mores Cookie. Jennifer Shea, founder of Trophy Cupcakes, models the dress along with Melody, a Girl Scout who has competed on Cupcake Wars and Chopped Junior. Together they paired for their love of cupcakes (Melody make the marshmallow-frosted ones she is holding in the photo, and Jennifer is holding her top-selling s’mores cupcakes!), and Melody’s aspiration to enter into the culinary field like Jennifer!
