OUT WITH AARON K: Nutty-Acting

Edited by

OUT WITH AARON K: Nutty Acting

I’m always surprised at how busy and nutty-acting everyone gets during Fashion Week prep. Everyone is in a huff. I’ve seen a lot of models in Soho, they’re almost all in huffs. Except for the “It” models, you know like Ash and Jethro. I bet they’re never in anything like a huff, they’re only in magazines. Is Cole Mohr still “It”?

Anyway, I got invited to the model casting for Duckie Brown. It made me feel a little special, but whenever I told anyone they sort of laughed. Everyone thought I was trying out to be a model, I wasn’t. Duckie wanted me there to cast models, and pretend to DJ. I really like pretending.

It was self-defeating though. The casting, I mean.  I was the short, pasty, black-clad kid with grandma glasses and bad hair. Everyone around me was 6 foot tall, healthy, fit, and beautiful. It was awful, and amazing. Amazing because they were changing and naked and trying on great clothes.

Two boys I party with came on a go-see. Is that an official term? Go-see? Or did Tyra make that up for America’s Next Top Model? But, right, Jace and Harvey came on a go-see. It was nice seeing them out and about during the day. And I think both of them were cast, because they have amazing walks and are so handsome.

Oh. Did anyone see that Craiglist missed connection from Tuesday? A friend posted it to my Facebook. I think someone I know, a boy, gave a man a blowjob at the Box while his girlfriend watched. It all happened on the balcony, I mean, I must have been a few feet away. Was it you? Tell me the truth. I need the scoop.

I think it’s a good nightlife when things like this can still happen. It reminds me of Studio 54.

It’s so sad that the Ruff Club is ending. I don’t know what else to say. It’s the end of an era, or something. There’s a rumor that Peaches Geldof and Jethro Cave will be there. That they’re going to DJ. I love Nick Cave, and his son Jethro is amazing. I didn’t know that Peaches is still around. Can I have her job? What is her job?

OUT WITH AARON K: Nutty Acting

P.S.

I forgot to mention I met Christopher Sauve and Julia Frakes yesterday while creeping Soho with Alex. Chris was the nicest, like so pleasant. Julia was a button, but I kind of think I squeezed her hand too hard. Alex thought her pants were a great Beacon’s find, but of course they were Erin Wasson. Nicollette said Julia was a downtown luminary.

OUT WITH AARON K: Nutty Acting

I guess she must be if she’s curating a collection at Screaming Mimi’s for Fashion’s Night Out. I’m jealous, wish I was curating a collection.

Did you know that even the Disney Channel changes its New York programming before and during Fashion Week? I told you, nutty-acting. Everyone.

Are You Ready To Get Ruff For Fashion Week?

I’m going to be honest, I wasn’t really getting my usual excited feeling about Fashion Week until I saw this flyer in my inbox today (which nearly resulted in me passing out in pure excitement at my desk)! This is going to be THE party to be at for Fashion Week! For more details check out the RUFF CLUB website, and prepare to lose your minds on the 11th.

PHOTOGRAPHER TO KNOW: Elle Rex

Edited by

She’s a photographer, she’s a videographer, she’s a model, she has the best style, she travels the world, she takes the most amazing party photos, she goes everywhere you’d want to go, she knows everyone you’d want to know, and she looks like this:

PHOTOGRAPHER TO KNOW: Elle Rex

Fashion Indie’s favorite, and most fashionable nightlife photographer, Elle Rex, had her last night at Ruff Club on Friday.  We’re going to miss her fierce style, and everyone all over the internet is going to miss her weekly photos that capture them in all of their ridiculousness.  Elle’s heading off to Europe with Designer Drugs, so don’t worry, she won’t disappear completely, but her nights of taking photos of our favorite Ruff kids are over, as the end of Ruff Club is set for next week.

See some of our favorite pics on Cult, and check out Elle’s photos from all of the Ruff Club parties, as well as other parties worldwide on her site.  The site also includes party videos, like the one below:

 

We’ll definitely miss seeing Elle around, and the final Ruff Club won’t be the same without her, but I’m sure we’ll be partying together in the future. Have fun in Europe, Elle!

STREET HEROES: Taylor Moore

Picture 7

Every party where I see Taylor, he’s always dressed to the T. Flawless, perfectly styled, and perfectly coiffed hair, Taylor’s a natural born stylist and DIY-er. See him Fridays at Ruff Club and check out his crazy gear. These pins arranged in a v-neck shape are mostly vintage, and as he told me, belonged to his Grandmother. Originality at its’ finest!

Check out his, and the Ruff kids photos on their website and check out his blog here!

Edited by

Picture 12You may remember us raving about how much we love Aaron K on our ‘Top 25 Under 25 Stylish People To Know’ list, and read how much love he got from everyone in the comments. Well, now we wanted to tell you that Fashion Indie (and all the world) loves Aaron K SO much that we’ve asked him to write his own column!

Aaron promotes parties all over the city, COOL JERK at Sin Sin, The Box, Ruff Club, and Tribeca Grand, and is always dressed to kill.  Corey and I met Aaron through our favorite party spot, Ruff Club at the Annex, and we’ve become good friends.  We knew that Aaron would have the best stories, as he goes to and throws the best parties, so we’re super excited to hear what he’s up to now on Fashion Indie.  Look for Aaron’s column, ‘OUT With Aaron K’, following the life of the most interesting (and fashionable) Club Kid around.

FASHIONINDIE: We Do Nightlife So You Don’t Have To

Edited by

Photo 41

Ouch. Friday night at Ruff Club, someone I don’t know was a little too drunk (no, not me, a guy, a friend of friends), passed out into me, and I fell down 5 concrete stairs, and by fell, I mean tossed through the air, flipped over backwards, and landed on my face…stood up bleeding, took a cab home, and woke up in the morning looking like this, among other bruises.  Needless to say, we think we do a pretty good job at keeping your nightlife interesting, telling all of the crazy stories of our 5am nights, and luckily, you don’t have to wake up looking like this.
