News & Runway


By Lauren David Peden

Q: Where else would you like to live (other than NYC) if you could?

A: There are so many places I haven’t explored yet. I’d love to live in Montana, Paris, Maine or Sussex.

Q: Who is your favorite model of the moment?

A: Sasha. She balances a cool vacancy with effervescent luster. She has real star quality without flaunting it. And she’s an artist!

Q: What’s in current rotation on your iPod?

A: The Arcade Fire, The Veronicas, Stylofone, Patti Smith and Anna Netrebko.

Q: Who do you admire, and why?

A: A lot of my existence is about admiration. I like people who take risks and have a unique hand that they are born with. I admire people who hone and own their craft. Jane Goodall, Werner Herzog, Azzedine Alaia, Herzog & de Meuron, and Hillary Clinton for going all the way.

Q: What would you like to be doing if you weren’t a fashion designer?

A:  Politician.
