A unique collaboration is underway to help make a bold statement from your dinner plate to your wardrobe

Cheetos Mac ‘N Cheese and fashion designer Coral Castillo are joining forces to roll out what they’re calling the "MAC’ramé" collection this fall. 

You may recognize Coral Castillo’s name from TV; she participated in a series called "Stitched" and also was a finalist on "Project Runway" in season 19. 

Said to have a "keen eye for texture and layering," her website says she’s a skilled macramé artist – perfect for this latest collaboration. 

The collection will feature sneakers and a waist bag, both with macramé designs reminiscent of Cheetos Mac ‘N Cheese spiral noodles. Macramé is a special knotting technique.

The designs will also feature vibrant colors found in the branding of the various Cheetos Mac ‘N Cheese flavors: Bold & Cheesy, Flamin’ Hot, and Cheesy Jalapeno.
