Glowsticks required


When Kylie Minogue rolls into town it’s usually with her long time boyfriend and our beloved Wilhelmina model/fashion obsession Andres Velencoso. Papi hooked us up with private balcony seats for a crystal view of the show, hovering atop a sea of fashion queens smushed and pushed up inside the Hammerstein Ballroom for ferocious laser beam-video drone=creatine pumped rave-a-palooza. Grown men burst into flames when Queen of Dynasty Joan Collins arrived in balcony above us. This tour should be sponsored by the Shamwow to mop up the buckets of sweat from the colossal Ibiza-like dance party.

Be a Dutchess or wear shoes like one


Fans mob Macy's for Fergie

Wilhelmina represented  artist Fergie came to town to promote her sexy shoe line “Fergilicious” at Macys. First lucky 300 in line got a photo with her. I stopped by after work on my way to acupuncture to find a hungry mob of devotees in a scrum to catch of glimpse of the Dutchess.


Rebel yell


I gets terrifyingly serious at the office. Sometimes to the point where the models are afraid to say hi. When I can I’ll try to take the time to get to know them and take them out for dinner or a night out.  I’ve always been inspired by album covers so when you get a group of guys out on Mexican night at my favorite “Festival Mexicana” and after to the usual watering hole “The National Underground” for some Johnny Cash music, there’s bound to be some legendary moments made for film.


NYFW fw 11: more than just the average L.A.M.B.


Gwen glowing

I am so impressed with Gwen Stefani.  Her collection was incredible, very much an individual fashion statement with just the right signature of her music influences. While most celebrity turned designers hire a designer and simply consult on what they like, I hear Gwen does everything. She is simply radiant.   NYFW http://www.flickr.com/photos/60231305@N08/sets/72157626187517036/


Dempsey meets the Veronicas

When I told Dempsey that The Veronicas were in town and that I was taking them to shows she squealed with delight. She told me that her and her 10 yr old sister love them and dance around the house to their songs. I arranged for her to stop by at the same time that the girls were at the Agency for a meeting. I literally thought she was going to burst into flames from excitement.


The Veronicas invade NYFW


Twin rockers and incredibly talented performers the Veronica’s Lisa and Jess Origliasso stopped by New York for Fashion Week for a couple days. I took the girls to see a couple selective shows, including the enchantedly gifted Anna Sui and Gwen Stefan’s L.A.M.B. If you have never seen the Veronicas perform do yourself a favor. They are mind blowing.  Working on new album now.

Paparrazzi welcome at L.A.M.B.

I'm usually pretty good at getting out of the way for the press shots but here I got caught in the crossfire. The girls looking cool as always.

Pre-show rehearsal for MbM

Dempsey is one of my extraordinary finds and the 2nd of 2 girls I scouted to be here for this Fashion Week.  Its her magical energy that draws people to her. She’s from Tasmania which I think is the coolest thing ever. Well, she killed it. Here she is at Marc by Marc.
