>> Alexander Wang had not one, but two ad campaigns come out today. The first — a follow-up to his premiere T campaign last season featuring Hannah Holman — is a portrait of his friend Zoe Kravitz alongside model Max Motta, which just like last season will be plastered on the streets of New York starting tomorrow.
And the second, something new for Wang: his first-ever main line campaign video, a collaboration with Craig McDean, Wang's show stylist Karl Templer, and Fabien Baron, featuring Abbey Lee Kershaw in a deserted Manhattan hotel. “This is our way to sum up the season in a different light other than the show,” Wang told WWD. “It’s abstracted . . . Rather than saying, ‘Here’s the product,’ this is more about expressing ourselves.”

>> There's more TV coming up from Joe Zee. In addition to his regular appearances on MTV's The City, Zee is getting a new show, All On the Line, to be aired on the Sundance Channel in 2011.
Each of the show's eight episodes will portray a new fashion designer in crisis, with Zee stepping in to provide "tough love" and "make or break [the designer's] dreams," according to the Sundance Channel. Zee, who will serve as a mentor to the designers and host of the show, will help the designers fix the problems with their collections and prepare to present for a buyer. “It’s about helping them get to the next level,” Zee said. “I will be here to lend my expertise." The program is in the middle of casting, according to Zee, who will also serve as a producer for the show.
