Style Wars = Project Runway on Steroids for the Downtown Scene

Think Project Runway is tough? F*ck that. Style Wars is live and underground, and design teams go head to head – with five minutes to create a garment. When House of Diehl started the battle a decade ago, Marc Jacobs, Viktor & Rolf and other downtown designers were dominating the stage. The new gard took the up the mantle last night. And the crowd brought it too. Photos ahead (we’re Tarantino-ing it back). 


The creators of the House of Diehl, MJ Diehl and Roman Milisic opened the show by turning a few umbrellas into couture.

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.
