5 Things Not To Miss This Fashion Week

Edited by

A scoop of young fashion designers, a dash of partying with a taste of charity – it’s clearly the only kind of eating we’ll be doing this New York Fashion Week. Unless we get an invite to L’Wren Scott‘s luncheon. Then we’ll just drink the Perrier. Check five events you’d be remiss to miss, Miss Thing.

Fashion Week Internationale Wraps Up Its First Season in the Most Homophobic Place on Earth

Edited by

You can’t keep a good gay down. At least that’s what I took away from the season finale of VICE‘s Fashion Week Internationale on Nigeria, a country of enormous civil unrest and institutionalized homophobia. However, while same sex marriage is a crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison,  hostess with the mostest Charlet Duboc learned that to get ahead in the burgeoning Nigerian fashion industry — or anywhere in Nigeria, for that matter — it (allegedly) behooves one to be a friend of Dorothy. Duboc couldn’t help but notice this conflicting duality which seems to mark the entire country during her time in Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city:

VICE Occupies Wall Street with Male Models in Dior Suits

Edited by

VICE, always willing to go above and beyond for their purely unironic love of fashion, responded to the Occupy Wall Street movement in their own unique way by styling four male models à la American Psycho‘s completely deranged but still completely bangable Patrick Bateman. Dressed in Dior Homme and Vivienne Westwood suits while brandishing caviar, their smug good looks and signs like “Suck 1% of My Dick,” and “It’s Not My (De)Fault,”  the boys went down to Zuccotti Park to hang out with the 99%. And luckily, no one ended up with a chainsaw through their back

VICE’s Fashion Week Internationale Blows Through Colombia

Edited by

VICE‘s Charlet Duboc took a trip down South American way to attend Colombia Fashion Week in Medellin — formerly the stomping grounds of drug czar, Pablo Escobar – in the third installment of the mag’s unconventional documentary series, Fashion Week Internationale.  There, she found a startling contrast between the country’s coked-up past and its bid to be taken seriously as a fashion capital. Whereas the models of Columbia Moda were the usual breed of leggy, thin, Anglo catwalker seen in Milan, London, Paris and New York; at a separate fashion week, Columbia para el Mundo, booty was king.

Vice Magazine Kicks Off New Web Series, Fashion Week Internationale

Edited by

Last night, Sam, Mac and I went to Vice Magazine‘s admittedly badass office in Williamsburg for the premiere of their new series on Vice.com, Fashion Week Internationale. Devoted to the world of fashion not constricted to the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris, each episode of FWI explores fashion weeks from a unique perspective; from countries in political and economic unrest to shows centered around unconventional themes. To wit, the first two installments of the series covers Islamabad’s second ever fashion week and New York’s Full Figured Fashion Week.

Fashion’s Got a New Vice

Edited by

“As I’m sure you know, being in a crowd while on acid is the worst thing in the world [True]. As I’m sure you also know, fashion people are the worst people in the entire world [Unfortunately, doubly true].” So begins Vice Magazine‘s “coverage” of London Fashion Week. Sending a young girl named Elektra to Topshop Unique‘s spring 2012 runway show on acid is such a Vice thing to do — and Vice is sooooo 10 years ago that I didn’t even realize it was still corrupting youth. But I’m glad that someone is…besides Justin Bieber. Vice‘s experiment in experimentation proved successful enough, however, that those kooky kids are broadening their coverage of fashion…in their own unique way.
