>> Joseph Altuzarra schedules his fashion show a few hours after Alexander Wang's — the upcoming Spring 2011 season is no exception — and for the past two seasons running, Wang has shown up just after his own show to take in Altuzarra's. Anna Dello Russo mentions to Altuzarra in the September 2010 issue of Interview: "When I met you, I also met Alexander [Wang]. You’re always together, which is lovely because your job is very competitive." And Altuzarra replies: "I’m actually with Alex now in the Hamptons."
He later adds: "I think designers are starting to realize that we’re all in the same industry. There is really no point in trying to be removed. I’m not saying we should all be friends, but I think the relationships are a little easier and warmer."
