“This Tanya Taylor look, which reminds me of a Pantone chart, perfectly matched the graffiti on the Bowery in downtown New York. I felt like I was starring in a production of Gio and the Technicolor Dream Dress.”


“This T-shirt from the Comme des Garçons Gold Rush collection for Dover Street Market was practically made for me. I want to add gio in black Sharpie.”


“For my sister Sara’s 30th birthday, we covered the walls of the Small in Milan with photos of her and filled the room with life-size cardboard cutouts. As you can see, it was quite a sticky situation!”
