I've been obsessed with the androgynous look ever since I saw Andrej Pejic walk the Jeremy Scott runway at Milk many years ago.

As more shows like Orange is the New Black and Rupaul's Drag Race come into the mainstream, the gender bending look will come into it's own....

Shooting Joe Zee's Julia

I met Julia Alarcon a few months ago. In an SUV carrying Richie Rich, myself and Keri Ingvarsson to a Gen Art function. On the way, we got pulled over by a cop for having tinted driver's windows. He insisted it was due to being in a VIP car --...

Oscar de la Renta, Resort 2012

The dust hasn't settled on Oscar's new space. The bricks are cracked and they've finally placed wood on a staircase binding two stories.

Going up is an intimate affair. Nina Garcia is pounding on her BlackBerry, planning a blow-out with her stylist. I'm such a snoop. Resort and Pre-Fall...

40s Style With Elie Tahari (PHOTOS)

(0) Comments | Posted March 25, 2011 | 4:35 PM

Elie Tahari is one of the many brands on my radar that I haven't been able to weave into various articles, largely because it's consistently at an even keel, providing customers with excellent quality at an affordable price. I can't even stalk their sales because by the time items hit...

My Best Photos of Fashion Week

(3) Comments | Posted February 23, 2011 | 3:07 PM

As fashion looks to Paris, I wanted to go through my favorite photos from New York Fashion Week, from Milk Studios to Lincoln Center. I love taking pictures. I think pictures are more powerful then words at times. So this season, more then most, I focused on telling the story...

So This Is Fashion, and Other Things

Summary: In which I ponder China.

The first day of fashion week, the Daily Front Row ran a profile of Gawker's Nick Denton, talking about how fashion doesn't have much of an audience. I personally started fashion week with a profile of Daphne Guinness -- her...

The Final Days of Fashion (PHOTOS)

(1) Comments | Posted February 18, 2011 | 5:38 PM

I can't help but wonder, what's happened to Diesel Black Gold -- they seem to have not only fallen off the cool roller coaster, but are producing almost nothing lust-worthy. Time to reinvent yourself again. Anna Sui started out as a stylist for Steven Meisel and now she gives us...

Backstage With Jeremy Scott (PHOTOS)

(0) Comments | Posted February 17, 2011 | 1:37 PM

There was a time in New York when club kids ruled nightlife and took over arena-sized amphitheaters, dancing the night away under the influence of various substances and Candy Flipped (acid + ecstasy). A quick Google search also tells me it's a British music phenomenon. This was the inspiration for...

Finding Your Religion With Bibhu

(1) Comments | Posted February 16, 2011 | 1:24 PM

I almost found Nirvana with Bibhu Mohapatra. He's come a long way since his J. Mendel days. Coincidentally, the brand was showing right next door. But everyone's eyes were on the young designer as media and friends lined up at the Box in Lincoln Center. Bibhu focuses on accessible luxury,...

I'm Seeing Red: Fashion, Fashion, Fashion! (PHOTOS)

I blame DeLeon tequila and the fab staff at Milk for getting me a little too drunk, so I have to smush two days coverage into one. Which isn't a bad thing. It just means you get more photos, from babies fascinated by breasts to Anna Wintour watching Donna Karan....

Fashion Lives Downtown on Day Three (PHOTOS)

(1) Comments | Posted February 13, 2011 | 1:09 PM

I've wanted to spend a lot of time downtown. I'm a little over the crazy that is Lincoln Center and the herding. At one point during the day, I looked around not recognizing one person, stating to a friend, "Who are these people?" Fashion has in fact moved away from...

Peter Som's luxury was sublime and the fashion tribe was in attendance. Nonoo was classic. Nahm, Ali Hilfiger (Tommy's daughter) and Nary Manivong baby brand are blossoming.

Andrew Buckler closed down a street and the collection was stunning -- I want everything. Costello Tagliapietra, the duo, gave us color....

Day One of New York Fashion Week (PHOTOS)

Nicholas K opened the week with a strong show -- the duo had come a long way since their gingham days. I'm quite excited to watch them grow. At Duckie Brown they showed blazers and a modern twist on the suit, with a clever eye on construction. W hotels helped...

On the Day Before Fashion Began (PHOTOS)

The day before Fashion Week is for baby brands and those not wanting to compete with established names. I found myself nearly freezing as I clicked, snapped and discovered fashion.

Luis Fernandez hit a hockey puck out of the ring as he presented his Number: Lab collection at the Standard...

Daphne Guinness has been called "fashion's wild child" by the New York Times. New York Magazine said she lives in a "jewel box."

She elicits innumerable amounts of comments, posts, blogs and profiles: an endless array of fascination. In short, she's her own fashionable tour-de-force,...

Pre-Fall and the Lost Audience

Largely due to winter and my own melancholy. I've only seen a few shows. Oscar de la Renta is, of course, one of my consistent favorites and going to Reem Acra's showroom makes me warm and fuzzy.

Her recent glitz-glam collection is striking and spot on, for...

And the Party Goes On

Last week was a cacophony of holiday parties, full of spiked egg nog, fancy people and Christmas cheer, goodwill and intoxication - stir, sip, fun. Three to four parties a night made my liver a touch upset. Once again I find myself moving from loft party to East...
