Funkshion Fashion Week: Andrew Charles

By | October 25th, 2011 | 2 Comments

On Friday night, we went to the Andrew Charles fashion show in the Moore Building, the Design District base of Funkshion Fashion Week. Andy Hilfiger is Tommy’s brother and Andrew Charles is Andy’s sartorial ode to rock-and-roll. The show featured a lot of leather and leopard print, several scoops of rhinestones, and a full-volume soundtrack starring the Rolling Stones, The Ramones, The Clash, The Kinks, etc. Basically, it was a mid-life crisis in the form of a fashion show, complete with an amateurish performance on guitar by Andy himself backed by Tommy Ramone on drums. (That might sound cool. It wasn’t.) Lousy with would-be Real Housewives, red-faced philanderers, and impeccable dandies, the show was a makeup-stinking mess. Here are the photos.
