Style Wars: ‘F*ck Ready-to-Wear; Get Ready to Rumble!’

So a few weeks ago I went to, House Of Diehl’s STYLE WARS:the US Style Battle Championships 2009 at Don Hills in NYC.

In this competition: <taken verbatim from invite>  “DESIGNERS apply to battle at www.houseofdiehl.com. 8 per city face off in knock-out rounds of rapid design—working against the clock, on models, LIVE on stage. Cutting, taping, burning, anything goes… the best battlers innovate to dominate the runway, using vintage garments and household objects to make incredible new fashions! The crowd and a panel of Style VIPs will choose which who moves on, who bites the dust, while a special guest DJ shreds the decks, yeah!”

Check out the action shots. It was a cool event. I respect anyone that can create haute couture-like fashions in minutes. I also respect the models that grin and bear hangers being jabbed into their ribcages.
