Crashin' Show

Duckie Brown, co-designed by Steven Cox and Daniel Silver, is a menswear line frequently described as "edgy."

As my brotha from another motha, photographer Nikola Tamindzic says, "I am Eurotrash: By default I love Custo!" We couldn't have said it better ourselves. The prints. The colors. All that sparkle. None of it seemed to match. But Nikola (and I suppose his Eurotrash brethren) didn't seem to care. When you can't beat…

It must be difficult to be Zac Posen, feeling the weight of being constantly told that the entire fate of American fashion rests on your young shoulders. As Marc Jacobs becomes downright establishment, Posen is the face, the voice, and the spirit of young American fashion. And last night's Spring/Summer 2008…

Which is why we were front and center yesterday for the pre-opening party for Tam's new store in New York's Soho, for which Vivienne hired a flock of models, dressed them in Mao-era…
