Fashion. It’s all around us, and it’s happening all the time. Specifically, fashion happened Thursday night at Marc Jacobs’s show at New York’s historic Ziegfeld Theatre. The event was structured as a movie premiere—complete with its own trailer, marquee, and branded popcorn bags.
Fuck a peplum! Is the thing Proenza Schouler seemed to say for Spring, a flounce that connotes the ultimate femininity but, ironically, looks malformed on those of us with hips. How to solve it? Give it cut-outs and let it lie gently below them, the waistline as hinge and, hey, a little give for when you’ve eaten too…
Oooh, looky. On Monday during New York Fashion Week, a squad of fun-loving models led by Gigi Hadid splish-splashed around in the beautiful, fresh Gowanus-inspired waters of Tommy Hilfiger’s spring 2016 runway show at Pier 36. Great idea. So lovely. They’re having so much fun.
After showing a Spring 2016 collection that included fashion Tevas and late ‘90s style rave looks, Alexander Wang hosted a ten-year anniversary party meant to recreate the atmosphere of famed Miami “gentleman’s” club King of Diamonds, as catered by Hooters.
Who knows what this look was about, at Rihanna’s fashion week party Thursday night at the New York Edition, but one can only assume it was some dirty boy talking greasy to a woman way out of his league (and in front of her grandfather, no less). The thirst surrounding her, from cell phone pics to everyone trying to…
Backstage at the V-Files runway show Wednesday night, a model’s “Think Outside the Cocks” heart-shaped wing over latex was adorned with peeled bananas and looked like the donut version of a Valentine’s Day card sticker. the piece, made by British design duo Namilia, challenged us: can you look at this banana donut…
It seems as though every New York Fashion Week ushers in a new thinky essay from some industry vet talking about how it all used to be so much better (which I don’t doubt). This season’s missive reminding us that everything sucks now comes from the New York Times’s Guy Trebay.
Attention, everyone: Marc Jacobs is hosting a release party at Tunnel for Gloss, a book about ‘70s fashion photographer Chris Von Wangenheim, during New York Fashion Week. The “dress to kill code,” via Yahoo Style, was communicated thusly:
An 18-year-old model with Down Syndrome named Madeline Stuart has landed a gig walking the runway during New York Fashion Week in September.
Jeremy Scott's latest collection for Fall Fashion Week, in which models were dressed like acidic Raggedy Anns and overalls were crafted in plasticky material that looked like the liner for a 1970s baby crib, raises the question: what the hell is even going on?
The London-based fashion line KTZ, designed by Marjan Pejoski, showed its Fall 2015 line at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, and its appropriated "Native American" prints and caricatures were actually quite shocking—albeit in a boring, "we've been here so many times before" type of way.
Health goth is dead because fucking real goth is back, my cool little vampiras. All you fools in your little weenie Nike Free Runs, jogging tights and HBA jammies prepare to fall back because Real Goth is in town this fashion week and is set to destroy your downtown trustafarian personae with glares and severe face…
Jay Z hit the streets of New York Fashion Week and let out a smile that was a little too free and his nemesis Cam'ron was right there to call him out. The discord between Cam and Jay is so great because they genuinely can't stand one another and are the real world's definition of Big Sean's love letter to Naya…
On Sunday evening, the temperature in New York City was something like 3 degrees, not factoring wind chill. Factoring wind chill, the temperature was "Fuck You I'm Not Leaving My Apartment."
New York Fashion Week is getting notoriously boring and corpo, so it's already starting at a loss, but now all these poor, beleaguered designers dropping $100k on staging runway shows have another thing to contend with: they have to live up to the promise of the first major show on the schedule. No, not talking about…
There's a lot that wedding dresses and Ebola have in common: They're expensive, take a long time to put on and both feature a facial shield to protect one's physical and emotional integrity. That's why it should surprise no one that a wedding designer will be debuting an Ebola suit during New York Fashion Week.
As usual, Betsey Johnson's spring 2015 collection was raunchy, girly, loud, and — above all — fun. While all of her shows are beauteous spectacles, this one was especially great: it was a ruffly, lacy, glittery celebration of marriage equality.
Carolina Herrera's Spring 2015 collection — shown yesterday at New York Fashion Week — is beautiful and graceful, with a modern twist.
Someone at Lifetime TV (apparently mistaking me for someone important) sent me an invitation to the Project Runway show at Lincoln Center. So I spent last Friday morning there, attempting to capture interesting tidbits from the experience using — listed in order of reliability — a camera, a tape recorder and my brain.
