We always dug Vivienne Tam's now-iconic Mao-print dresses. After, who doesn't love a little pinch of the good Chairman in their wardrobe? 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 army uniforms, and sent them marching down the streets of lower Manhattan. The army arrived (though tardy), we drank too much Veuve, and we admired Vivienne's Spring/Summer 2008 collection, which was monochromatic, minimalist, and had nothing to do with dictators, fascist, communist, or otherwise.
