knowing dirty diana (i can vouch for her clubbin’ skillz), her concepts made a lot of sense to me: her choice of lasercut-like materials, the goddess collection’s cybergothic roots, the convertible clothing. i am *all about* her hoodie for the barbie challenge. le sigh. regardless of the show, i am sure she will go very far with her design vision. if you’re in the area, see diana eng + other fab designers present their work in the seamless fashion show in two weeks in boston. get your tix quickly because it’s going to sell out superfast!
but now, though it is sad knowledge that she won’t be showing her designs at fashion week, watching the show has now morphed into pure guilty pleasure. :) i am rooting for ‘uncle’ nick, because he’s the perfect combination of fresh talent, cheeky wit, and understated tact, and hope that santino eats crow (from the feathers of his last dress, preferably) very very soon.
here’s a pic from a jaunt in LA last year, with diana and the none-other-than daniel franco!
we ate sandwiches and cheeseballs and cruised the streets in his 3-people-squeezed-into-a-sized-for-2 car. red, of course. he was very gracious, but unfortunately was limping from a yoga mishap. hope next time i’m in LA, i’ll be able to visit his studio and see his collection up close! woo. woo.
