>> Don't Be Surprised if Christopher Kane Has a TV-Inspired Collection —Christopher Kane prefers not to do his designing at his 4,000 square foot east London studio, but rather at home in front of the TV: “Television’s brilliant.” His sister, Tammy Kane, who is instrumental to the business, agrees: “It relaxes you, doesn’t it?” The two do everything together, even vacationing with their boyfriends (Christopher's been seeing Declan Tomany, a lawyer, for four years), but they're currently disagreeing — Tammy wants to bring in a designer to help with the workload: “I know he doesn’t want it. He hates anything that’s not his.” Christopher's response? “I’ll just ignore him,” says Christopher, flicking his hair in mock annoyance. [Times UK]

Tasha Tilberg, Ymre Stiekema Go '60s Avedon for Show Package; Irina Lazareanu To Make Runway Return?
>> Spring 2010 show packages with New York Fashion Week just over a week away: Supreme went goth with the help of photographer Hanna Liden, Major Model Management enlisted the help of student artist Rachel Chiu to illustrate their roster, and Irina Lazareanu looks poised to make a runway return — her card is in the mix at Marilyn. But thus far, the most eye-catching rests with One Management — they had icons like Ann Catherine Lacroix, Tasha Tilberg, and Colette Pechekhonova, plus Prada favorite Ymre Stiekema, all done up '60s Richard Avedon-style, complete with helmet from his 1965 Harper's Bazaar cover.
