It started with a tweet and became a mission. On August 1st Christiane sent out a Tweet about the amazing Cronut™ line that she saw growing daily on her way to work. Fashion Designer Peter Som responded, asking if she would bring him one, leading to banter about bartering dresses for Cronuts™ and Cronuts™ as currency. Their back-and-forth caught the attention of Chef Ansel – the award-winning chef and creator of theCronut™, who suggested they collaborate to bring design and Cronuts™ together for charity; a friendship and mission was born.
