Designer Daily: Zana Bayne

We’ve got the Friday night special in the form of leather mistress Zana Bayne. Self-taught in the craft, she has the kind of design eye that brings the kink to this side of chic. She has harnessed the power of Lady Gaga and Prabal Gurung in the form of videos and ongoing collaborations. She’s powerful. This kickass Brooklynite applied her study of conceptual art to leather and the body, and one of the main thoughts it has me pondering (aside from historical connotations of leather in S&M, objectification of the human body, feminist ideals, etcetera) is how late is Patricia Field open? I might just pick one up tonight. 


The leather harness Lady Gaga writhed around in during the Yoü and I video was made by the hands of Zana Bayne. Badass. Paws up.

I impart my daily love of light layering, thick-as-thieves platforms and undiscovered fashionable gems. I love to turn a phrase, and in truth I'm a designer at werq.
