The second season of The Countdown, Refinery29's video series featuring profiles on important names in fashion, premiered yesterday 22 January 2008 in collaboration with MySpace Fashion. The series visits five influential independent designers in their studios as they prepare for New York Fashion Week 2008.
The first episode's subject is none other than Thom Browne and includes an interview with the designer as he prepares for his circus-inspired show. "There's some things in the show that will take some very, um, multi-talented models," explains Browne while trying not to give away too much.
Future episodes will feature Shipley & Halmos discussing their upcoming collaborations over burritos, Erin Fetherston casting for her show, Band of Outsiders creating looks with their stylist and Preen at their hair and make up trials. Check Refinery29 for dates and details.
