  1. are you serious the SS09 line sucked so much! Im really surprised that they picked him to win. I was expecting Richard Chai. but Alex is the hipster of the moment, so i guess I’m glad he won, not saying that Im not a fan, because I am. Just ddn’t think he was as strong as when Erin was helping him out. Does anyone else think that after Erin isn’t styling anymore…the line kinda looks bland and boring?…

    I think to say that the “SS09 line sucked so much” is an extreme exaggeration. I go to many shows covering backstage and I have to say that Alexander makes of the few lines out there that the models really love and actually wear. I see the models all the time and being backstage at his show is like hanging out with the girls at the Waverly Inn. He really makes sexy/comfortable/wearable clothes that defines their downtime aesthetic. I would totally wear his clothes on a daily basis… and isn’t that what fashion is about?

    Erin is an American woman and a model, the new stylist for this show was Alistair McKimm who is a man and from the UK. Definitely different aesthetics.. I think it fit right very well the simple clothes mixed with Alexander’s very strong shoes.. Too much overstyling would have looked…. overstyled.
