Maria Baibakova channeled a much classier version of the red-headed wench from the 2002 Scorsese film, with a corseted fringed shawl: “I was very inspired by **Cameron Diaz’**s character!” So was Bettina Prentice, who as a fellow redhead to Diaz’s Jenny Everdeane wore a sweeping skirt and gloves.None of the new additions are particularly surprising; the Proenza boys have been lobbying hard on behalf of the CFDA’s efforts to establish stronger anti-knockoff legislation in Congress, and Marc Jacobs is, well, Marc Jacobs.Proenza Schouler is a New York based womenswear and accessories brand founded in 2002 by designers Jack Mc Collough and Lazaro Hernandez.
At its biannual board meeting yesterday, the CFDA elected Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler’s Jack Mc Collough and Lazaro Hernandez to their board, which has 26 members.
It’s not everyday you have a chance to be inspired by the men who are holding court at the center of the fashion universe (I’m not even saying that to be dramatic). That’s right, Proenza Schouler, the men who brought the world the Ps1 bag and sent this down the runway at New York Fashion Week earlier this month will be here, and they’ll be sharing what they know.
But, tomorrow is that day, because Jack Mc Collough and Lazaro Hernandez, the guys behind one of the most-coveted, cutting-edge and celebrated labels in contemporary fashion, are coming. You can catch Jack and Laz at the Institute of Contemporary Art on Thursday at p.m. They’ll discuss their designs and the inspiration behind their collections with museum curator Helen Molesworth.
From the ICA website: Designers Jack Mc Collough and Lazaro Hernandez met while studying at the Parsons School of Design in New York and launched their distinctive clothing brand Proenza Schouler shortly thereafter.
Notable for an intriguing and inventive use of fabric, their designs are inspired by influences ranging from the Himalayan region of Nepal; the coy urban youth culture of New York; and artists Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, and Gerhard Richter.
