Ep: 13: Styling Paul Bunyan

Our guest in this episode is an author, illustrator, entrepreneur, and self-taught designer. Christopher Straub climbed to fame as a fan favorite during season six of Project Runway. But that was not the start – or the pinnacle – of his creative career. 

During this fascinating conversation Straub shares stories ranging from the many projects, he has worked on at Mall of America to his TV appearances. He talks about designing special outfits for Super Bowl 52 celebrations, his work helping to create massive fashion shows and his work on the famous log chute ride at the Mall. In the log chute ride, Straub designs and styles the massive 27-foot-tall Paul Bunyan – outfits themed for different seasons.

Straub also shares his experience as an author and illustrator of children's books, his work creating a line of plush animals, his life as a design and fashion entrepreneur and his most important and rewarding role as a father.
