fashion forward, on your screen now


Bastian and Nolan and Varvatos, oh my! An impressive roster of designers will be showing off their creations during the second annual Fashion Forward party at Skylight Studios on November 10th. A salute to the industry’s ongoing commitment to fighting HIV/AIDS, the night will not only feature a Bryant Park-worthy fashion show, but also a live and silent auction hosted by Tim “Make It Work” Gunn. To whip up a little pre-event buzz, host GMHC (Gay Men’s Health Crisis) produced a 30-second commercial featuring beautiful people (read: models) wearing stylish duds and shimmying to vaguely Latin techno beats. Starting this week, the spot will air on WNBC. But you can check it out here first.

Tim Blanks: More Creative Cross-Pollination, Please

For some New Yorkers, the storefront at 315 Bowery will always and forever be the home of CBGB. Current tenant John Varvatos may in fact be one of those people: Varvatos has turned his store in the former CB’s space into something of a rock ‘n’ roll shrine, and last night he presented the latest in a series of concerts at the shop, this one a gig by new Varvatos campaign star and ex-Jane’s Addiction lead singer Perry Farrell. The designer gave the intro, bullet-pointing Farrell’s “innovations”: Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros, the Lollapalooza festival. Farrell emerged and the crowd went wild—though a little prompting was required from Farrell in order to turn the wildness dial up to 11. “Make some noise! We’re live on Sirius Satellite Radio! You want the listeners to hear you, right?” Yes, apparently, and perhaps the loudest cheers were coming from the party guests who’d spotted ex-Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro standing coolly in the wings. Indeed, a mini-Jane’s reunion was in the works—at last, Navarro got up onstage with his former bandmate, and the crowd needed no prompting whatsoever as together they lit into a rendition of “Jane Says.” On Sirius Satellite Radio, you can hear the fans singing along.
