Student designers, MTV wants you

April 30th, 2008

If you think you’re the next big fashion designer, MTV may give you the chance to prove it if you’re a high school or college fashion designer.

Producers for its newest show, “Fashion High,” are looking for “fabulous, creative and dynamic” high school or college students who are currently studying fashion and are gearing up to show their designs.
You should appear to be at least 15 years old, have a huge personality and want the world to see your work.

To apply, email by May 6, 2008. Include your name, school, grade, city, state, phone number, email address, the best time to reach you, and a parent’s name and phone number.

Also, answer the following questions:
>> How did you get started in fashion and what you have designed so far?
>> What kind of clothing do you make?
Do your friends/parents support you?
Do they like your designs or think you should look into doing something else with your life?
Do you have an arch competitor?
Is there someone you are jealous of because of their talent, but also want to beat in a competition?
Attach a photo of yourself and the clothes you have designed.

House of Cobain, the next generation

April 29th, 2008


U.K.’s Daily Mail is reporting that Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld wants Frances Bean Cobain to appear in his next ad campaign.

Given that Cobain pulled more of her mom Courtney Love’s genes, she’s an unlikely choice, though anything the girl ends up doing is bound to make news.

I really loved, loved her dad Kurt Cobain, what he stood for and his music. After he died I went to Seattle to be at Ground Zero, found his house, shot video, all the usual stalkerazzi stuff. I somehow hoped Frances would grow up to be a rock star and pick up where Kurt left off. I miss all the music he didn’t get to make.
