Controversy in Tribeca: <Br>Guests Of Cindy Sherman Asked to Leave

Zak Soreff and Milon Henry Levine are Guests of Cindy Sherman…or at least of the film “Guest of Cindy Sherman” which premiered last night in NYC.

Controversy swirlled around the Tribeca Film Festival last night as Cindy Sherman released a statement regretting her involvment in Tom Donahue and Paul H-O’s film “Guest of Cindy Sherman.” Here is the text of that statement:

“As my name is in the title and my work and self are so abundantly represented, I would like to counter any assumption that I am or wish to be personally associated with it. I am not a participant in any events related to the film’s screenings in this festival or future presentations.

I apologize to all those who participated, thinking they were doing me a favor in giving interviews and otherwise assisting in the fabrication of this film.

Against my better judgment, it was clearly unwise to cooperate with the project at its inception.”

Genuine Statement or Relatively Intelligent Publicity Stunt?

Your thoughts are most welcome.

Custo Barcelona Fall ’08

If Bill Blass seems to be rooted in a time and place..Custo Barcelona…despite the name of designer Custo Dalmau’s company, is rooted in Custo. With menswear that would be hard for this reporter to wear, though it looks fun on, you know, very thinnish men, Custo has a magnificent feeling for women and every part […]

Temperley London Fall ’08

The name smacks of a Tanquery Gin Ad and something about Alice Temperley throws you into the sense of aristocratic elegance…and its not just the London that accents her legendary line’s name. Temperley’s Fall ’08 collection carries just the right combination of voluptuousness, or what Glamwire Junior Reporter Zac Time eagerly refers to as “sluttiness,” […]

Anna Sui Fall ’08

This collection marked for Anna Sui a progression. Last fall saw a lot of faux fur eskimo jackets and gloves…and this fall Sui went Psychadelic Eskimo–Native American–Pan Asian to push her own glorious style to the limit. To me this was the collection that was truest to Anna Sui herself, rooted in color, hippie splendour, […]

Betsey Johnson Fall ’08

There is a feeling that sixties free spirited, Love Above All vibe really takes hold in New York. At least during Fashion Week. We’ve mentioned that feel to shows by Erin Fetherston, Sass and Bide, G-Starm, Miss Sixty, and bohemia is always directly behind Heatherrette, which will not show this season, possibly directly due to […]

Tracy Reese Fall ’08

It has been said that Tracy Reese’s Fall ’08 show that just finished up here in New York is all about the elements and the weather. Swirling sky patterns, sheer grey cocktail dresses and a whole slew of caramel and rust combos proved that. As a show meant to capture the elements and weather it […]

Rock and Republic Fall ’08

Rock and Republic is another company built upon jeans. Started 5 years ago in La, when CEO Michael Ball made a pair of jeans for his girlfriend, today R&R does well over $100 million a year and did a major show in Bryant Park here tonight, replete with a rock orchestra, strings, guitars, horns, and […]

Sass And Bide Fall’ 08

Sass and Bide started as a jeans company in Australia, but they have quickly branched out into casual stuff that has the look of high end wearable art. The clothes are made carefully with ecclectic, luxurious fabrics highlighted by the ocassional, ruffled organza shoulder and heavy use of metallic medallion-like patches everywhere. It comes off […]

Erin Fetherston Fall ’08

Erin Fetherston laid out another unremarkable yet fun collection in New York today showing that she has more and more money apparently behind her, and giving forth a kind Pia Zadora of the fashion industry vibe. There is a young very basic hippy vibe to some of it, and the long white evening wear was […]
