Designer Richard Chai, who donated many of his pieces to the Fashion Girls for Japan sample sale, talks about issues in Japan and what inspires his work. He also shows Eyeshadow Government what's hiding under his sweatshirt. Ooh la la!
Yesterday, fashionistas were giving back by shopping like miniature, mad Garance Dorés at the Fashion Girls for Japan sample sale at the Bowery Hotel in New York, but there's even more good news. The sale continues today. The line to enter the event swept around the corner with chic gals clad in tall black riding boots, loop-knit Alexander Wang sweaters and cat-eye sunglasses aplenty. Some were getting one last shot at wearing those Rachel Zoe-esque fur vests (that may or may not last one more season, if you know what I mean).
Upstairs, "wow" or drooling were totally logical reactions to the array of magical designs for sale. Hip designer John Patrick was cooing over the Jil Sander section, ummm, as was I. Temptation! There are still plenty of incredible items to be scored today. See you there!
Also, it was great to meet Richard again. The last time I saw him, he was playing ping pong at Barneys and losing terribly (he still blushes about it).
