“I am Brooklyn,” (BKFW) Brooklyn Fashion Weekend 2010- a delicious disaster.


Djamee Spring 2010 at BKFW.

Duroseau Couture:

With neon colored cloth and models who struggled to find the gist of walking down the plank (to be fair, it seems there was a pothole on the highway that organizers should have tended to before the show began…) these girls tried valiantly to affect cool and elan, but the clothes fell flat, were not well executed and anytime we come across a model struggling to navigate the plank because of the limitation of the design we are immediately in sorrow for her plight. The clothes in its entirety reminded this author of what a young high school sweet heart would wear if she were attending a prom in Mars. Which isn’t really saying much… With a designer who’s shown better efforts in the past a quick march back to the drawing room will see civilization ultimately better off.


If you are into nubile skinny boys with shiny pecs and abs of steel caressing the planks in white sheath tights and dog collars, and the occasional Superman G string this was definitely your show. With young lads lampooned with ear muffins (why we couldn’t figure out…), criss cross latticed sheath tights and the occasional 5 year old princess (yes she took our collective breath away…) Djamee was a real treat. How versatile the clothes will prove to be in the open market remains to be seen, but as an accessories designer, one couldn’t help but smile in the end when Superman finally flew down the runway. It was I trust this author’s opinion the designer’s best effort at irony and tongue and cheek and it nearly worked. Perhaps if Linda Carter’s Wonder woman were to follow behind super boy all would have been forgiven, but at least the collection woke up the audience out of a stupor that it had by now begun to find itself in.

  1. Hi Scallywag, we were in a little room next to the changing rooms since 7pm. Simon kept asking everyone including Ricky Davy when to go up and we were told to wait. I came out a few time to take pictures of the show and was surprised that the timeline for the entire event for skewed. I wished we were in Cherry Hill, it would have been more fun I suppose.


    p.s. did you get a chance to check out the pictures on my fb page. the entire set of images from the fashion show are at the link;


  2. I also loved the young model, Gina Cattanach, who walked for Terri Stevens and Alicia Trimble. She had the walk and attitude of a Super Model. It’s too bad the industry discounts people who are not tall enough! There are many designers missing out on a great young model!

  3. I walked for DAS KOMITTEE, TERRY STEVENS, ALISHA TRIMBLE and ANDREA PITTER and the audience clapped for me=)

  4. I enjoyed Terri Stevens collection.. I thought the young model who walked was fantastic.
    Also, i don’t see any pictures from Alisha Trimble, why?

  5. Sorry, I guess i misinterpreted this line.

    “By this stage, humanity was not on Das Komittee’s side and the hissing from the paparazzi continued and the audience couldn’t barely hold their attention.”

  6. No in fact I have been rather accurate on all counts.

    To reiterate there was no hissing or booing during Das Komittee’s presentation. Not once do I claim during that designer’s showing was there disregard from members of the press. Although to be honest half of them were by then half asleep and resigned to the ill organizing of the show. The designer itself put up a brave front in fact.

    With respects to Terri Steven’s this is what I had to say:

    Terri Stevens who simply bored the hell out of us and should never have been invited in the first place. Boring, trite and save for the occasional gold sequined jacket, a complete waste of time and aggravated assault on the audiences sensibilities.

    I trust things are clearer now.

  7. The writer obviously took some liberties with embellishments. I was there and I did not hear hissing and booing during Das Komitee’s presentation. In fact, her designs were the only ones that recieved applause. I also note that designer Terry Steven’s work was not mentioned when she was one of the stronger designers.

  8. When you say you were with Alex and Simon, was that at some restaurant in Cherry Hill, NJ? The mc- Dee Vasquez must have asked for Alex and Simon at least 89 times, and not once did we see the visage of their shiny selves, The first time humanity got a glimpse of the Tom and Jerry show wasn’t until 10.45, which by then no one cared.

    Why these silly misrepresentations of the truth?

  9. I was one of the photographers who was at the fashion show. I was with Alex, Simon and Derek and we were all waiting to be called since 7pm. It was a fun event but things did get late because of music performers taking a little longer with their acts. I will be posting pictures from the even on my website as well as FB soon. Check them out.


  10. I enjoyed the Plus Size models. Fat asses or not they were all beautiful.


  11. The photos are horrible! Who shot that? Why didn’t you get shots from a real runway photographer instead of some low life paps?
