Home of: the “Fashion Week” Douche
Affectations: Chain-smoking over a sewing machine until the early morning; shit-talking “commercial” designers that you will most likely end up assisting for the next five years; rolling up to sewing class in shoes from a designer you probably haven’t heard of to make some clothes you’d never want to wear (pirate-themed menswear anyone?); whining about how Alexander Wang is so expensive you can barely afford Ramen; hanging outside trim stores in the garment district; replying to any e-mail sent in the month of August with, “I mean, like, can we start our collection, like, after fashion week?”; being extremely possessive of pin cushions.
Favorite Pickup Line: That cross-stitching is reminiscent of Tsumori Chisato
Pet Peeve: When someone asks if you went to FIT.

A little mid-fashion week treat for the kids. Hope everybody is staying alive. Ahh ahh ahhh ahhh stayin’ alive.
why look, it’s a gratuitous drawing of a pair of crazy boots. like i said earlier, i once was a design student at parsons and never really stopped designing once i left. so i have sketchbooks literally full and bursing with clothing, shoe, handbag and all sorts of designs. i’ve decided to post them from time to time. these are one of my favorites, they’re completely like the clothes i love to see, balmain, rodarte, ann demeulemeester among others. worn by the likes of kate lamphear and her kind. so i hope you enjoy them.
1: studded strap boots: they’re spikey.
