Cushnie et Ochs Design for Gramercy Park Hotel
Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs designed a limited-edition dress that will be the exclusive attire for the staff of the Gramercy Park Hotel’s Rose Bar. This is the third time the hotel called upon fashion designers to dress its staff. Previous designers were Narciso Rodriuez and Sophie Theallet. “We are extremely excited to be collaborating with Rose Bar. It’s one of the sexiest rooms in New York City and such a great venue to showcase our clothes,” said Carly Cushnie. “The dress we designed is the ultimate Little Black Dress- sexy, sleek and demure,” added Michelle Ochs. Cushnie et Ochs celebrated last night at a party at the Rose Bar.
L’Wren Scott’s Passing Still Shocks Industry
The fashion industry remains in shock over the death of L’Wren Scott. She had been suffering from depression over the last few months, according to several sources. Many said those feelings had intensified during the New Year and Scott even abruptly canceled her presentation during London Fashion Week, citing production problems. Scott’s longtime companion, Mick Jagger, released the following statement; “I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her.” The Rolling Stones also postponed all of their performances in Australia and New Zealand.
Tommy Hilfiger stated, “L’Wren was a very talented woman with great taste. Dee and I have been friends with her for quite some time now, and she was a generous and loving person. We will miss her deeply.” Barneys New York’s CEO Mark Lee described the late designer as “a beloved and accomplished designer of ours for many years. She was an important partner with a kind and gracious spirit.” The New York City Police Department’s initial investigation indicated the death was an apparent suicide as there were no signs of forced entry.
Kate Moss Writes Review for British Vogue
Kate Moss, who is a contributing editor at British Vogue, has written a music review for vogue.co.uk. Moss’ 716-word review on George Michael’s latest album “Symphonica,” discusses the music in detail. “‘You’ve Changed’ feels fragile and honest; it almost makes me cry. For me, it’s the vulnerability, openness and richness of his voice that does it. The depth of where that comes from touches you in a place that you can’t even begin to understand and all of a sudden it’s not just a song anymore; it becomes an emotion and it takes you into another dimension,” writes Moss. The supermodel is a longtime fan of Michael’s and tells of when she tried to get tickets to see Wham when she was 12. “I tried to get tickets for ‘Wham The Final,’ their last gig. I was on the phone for hours and hours, but I still didn’t get one. I was so upset that I just cried. So when I was dancing with George to ‘Everything She Wants,’ with him doing all his moves, it made up for all those years of disappointment,” recalls Moss.
