Matt Scanlan is the CEO of not just the brand he co-founded in 2015, but also of Thakoon and the upcoming Something Navy line.
The investment firm, led by Silas Chou's daughter, reportedly plans to overhaul Thakoon's business model.
It was fashion prom meets an alterna-world bar mitzvah at the legendary Bergdorf Goodman’s 111th birthday blowout at the Plaza last night. We chatted with supermodel and Estee Lauder spokeswoman Carolyn Murphy about her upcoming Project Runway: All-Stars gig and how she’s teetering on the precipice of addictive low-brow TV viewing.
Fashion's Night Out is two weeks from tomorrow! There is more going on than we can even wrap our heads around. Having trouble deciding where you want to go and who you want to see the most? Well, if you're interested in catching a peak of one of your favorite designers, here's a roundup of where some of the biggest and the best will be on September 10. We've excluded most of the people we've already reported on. Also, it's almost safe to say that if someone isn't on this list, they will probably be at Barneys. Michael Kors Michael will be at his lifestyle store on Madison and 61st in New York City. He will be joined by TONY Award winner Idina Menzel, whom Michael will accompany on a selection of songs. Michael will also make an appearance nearby at Bloomingdale’s 59th street, where the “World of Michael” will be created to kick off a new Michael Kors handbag shop-in-shop. Tommy Hilfiger Tommy will be kicking off FNO and his brand’s 25th anniversary at Macy’s Herald Square. As we’ve reported, Macy’s will house “The Ultimate Tailgate Party” as inspired by Tommy’s most recent ad campaign. Tommy will be accompanied by Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren. He will also make an appearance at his Fifth Avenue store, where shoppers can have their purchases personalized with an exploding monogram while they shop, listen to DJ Toddlerone and drink up.
After living here for a while, you sometimes forget how many amazing people live and work in New York City. When we walked into City Hall for the Fashion's Night Out kick-off press conference today, we went through security with Lisa Mayock from Vena Cava. Then, we saw Anna Wintour walking ahead of us and Alex Wang suddenly appeared behind us. A few minutes later Marc Jacobs, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez walked in. After we were seated inside the press conference room, the following people (in addition to the aforementioned) surrounded the podium: Prabal Gurung, Zac Posen, Phillip Lim, Tracy Reese, Kenneth Cole, Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Tommy Hilfiger, Thakoon Panichgul, Marcus Wainwright from Rag & Bone, Francisco Costa, Vera Wang, Tory Burch, Steven Kolb, Linda Fargo, the Mayor...and after a few moments, we noticed tiny Mary-Kate Olsen peeking her head out behind Marc. Then, unfortunately, we died and are thus unable to report anything else about Fashion's Night Out. Just kidding - sort of.
