I'll take designing for drag queens over WWE divas any day. The designers got their chance at over-the-top and I'm satisfied that most of them lived up to the challenge. It's always a joy to be in the presence of season four alum Chris March and the queens were delightful — such personalities. There is definitely a lot of creativity in this group and this challenge set it free. However, once again I disagree with the winner. I'll spare you any spoilers because the eye candy is just too good . . . viva la drag!
Fashion week without the club kids is like Christmas without a tree! Thankfully Phillipe and David Blond made sure this fashion week was a joyous season. They kept the downtown crowd waiting for nearly an hour last night as they scrambled to get their debut demi-couture collection on the runway. Patricia Field and her buyer became increasingly antsy as the clock ticked towards 10pm while a bored Patrick McDonald inquired after our reading material (China Mieville's Perdido Street Station) as backstage crews zipped, poked, and prodded girls into a set of corsets and costumes so intricate and so violent we can't wait to get our hands on them for a shoot. Clearly it was very much worth the wait.
