The LeSportsac pedicabs were the best way to get around town on Fashion’s Night Out.

After seeing how enthusiastic and motivated consumers are that come out in droves to suck down all the free booze and “shop”–using the term loosely here–there is so much more to do altruistically speaking. All this good-will can be harnessed and the giving aspect of this event can be multiplied exponentially. … Read More »

If you are going to get these many celebs out and about, have them stread the message of raising money for The New York CityTrust.

Don’t get me wrong, I have been a cheerleader for Fashion’s Night Out since the day it was first announced over three years ago. In fact, we rallied retailers that first year as there were plenty of skeptics. Naturally, Anna Wintour prevailed. The 3rd Annual Fashion’s Night Out was a zoo, especially down in the Meatpacking District. So zoo-like, that it was unpleasant in certain spots, with lines to get into stores, blaring dueling DJ’s in the streets and plastic cups strewn on the ground, like a bad weekend street fair. The street activities need some curating, benchmarks, something, because… Read More »

Is there one person on this front line that you would sleep with? Don't bother answering that.

Talk about showing up late to the party. There is a group of anti-gay zealots that want to overturn the Marriage Equality Act that went into law this week for the State of New York. What is with these right-wing religious hypocrites? As we see in these pictures, there is an equal smattering of Gross Baboons and Orthodox Jews, you know, of the recent killing of the little boy fame. As well as the many Orthodox Jewish men who I witnessed coming regularly to the Meatpacking District in the 1990’s when I lived there to pick up MALE tranny hookers.… Read More »

Remember that sultry sweetheart from Tiger Woods‘ band of happy hookers, Rachel Uchitel? Well, turns out that there is life after scandal for this lip-locking, lip-enhanced, ex-doormat, I mean doorman from the Meatpacking District hot spots. Rachel, you may recall, was the only hooker that received an undisclosed several million dollars in exchange for keeping her trap shut, thanks to Madame Gloria Allred, her attorney mouthpiece. Anyhoo, Rachel having survived Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab, is launching her next business venture as a private eye. Yes, just when you are ready to have someone followed and investigate their dirty dealings, you can… Read More »

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is in full regalia and there seems to be hundreds of shows and presentations being staged everywhere you turn. Don’t be surprised if that group of homeless people in tattered clothes and pilling blankets isn’t really the hottest, new fashion and coordinated home collection inspired by the 9.5% unemployment rate that is challenging our economy. The designer, Toothless McGee, really does live in a box, and a recyclable one at that, to show how eco-friendly he is. The collection is called “Thrown Money” and the accessories are made from loose change strung together with fishing wire.… Read More »

For those of you who do not quite know what a Fotzy Balloon is, I figured this is a critical moment to explain it since the fotzy balloons are coming. So…What is FOTZY or FOTZ ? Etymology: What started out as a sarcastic reference to something, someone, well, anything, that “thinks” or acts like they are way too fascinating. So, it started as a sarcastic: “Oh, they’re fascinating”. And evolved to… “Well, aren’t they fotzinating”. Which shrunk down to… “They are fotzy”. Which became… “Fotzy Balloons.” And finally… “Fotz”. Her are a few examples: Bing is fotz. What Madonna wore… Read More »

So, Target is under fire for making a generous contribution to a wanna-be, fag-bashing hater in Minnesota. That is, after all, the Mecca of style…downmarket style anyway. Target is such a contradiction of terms. Who is their “target” consumer? We see by walking into any store who is stocking up on child-labor made goodies. Whenever I enter the few stores that are a stones throw from Manhattan, I think, “Am I in Kansas? Where do these people come from?” However, Target is brilliant at all levels of marketing and public relations, well, except for the current fag-hating thing. Their visuals… Read More »

Nothing is garnering more media attention than Fashion’s Night Out. Not the Oscars, the MTV Music Awards, New York Fashion Week, Snooki. Nothing.  When we look at what drove Anna Wintour to devise one of the greatest marketing plans on Earth, we see at the core, a beautiful, well-intended, generous, spirited gem of an idea. “Bring people back to the stores.” Funny, that when George Bush said the same thing after 9-11, that people should just “Go Shopping”, it was met with mixed emotions. Actually, Democrats were apoplectic. But if you think about it…it was a good idea. When is… Read More »

Mazdack Rassi Chats With IMW-TV

While dilly-dallying this morning, I came upon a few people who were recently photographed that somehow fit into a nice neat box. A fotz box. Now, I know that not everyone can be a supermodel or Gwyneth Paltrow, who has been on more red carpets lately than…well…red carpets. I just thought there was a through line between these subjects and wanted to see them up on the IMW screen-a-tron. I can not quite put my finger on it…but there is a certain yenteh quality that these folks share.… Read More »
