Chloë Sevigny had a fashion show at St Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery Saturday


Chloë Sevigny, who may or may not still be living on East 10th Street, threw a fashion show at St Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery Saturday. The Daily Mail had a report on all this yesterday.

Per the article:

Chloë Sevigny returned to her model roots on Saturday, starring in the fall 2013 presentation for her own Opening Ceremony line ... the 38-year-old actress and fashion designer stood amongst her mod-themed models with blank stares, who, like the protests staged by youthquakers in the Sixties, held signs that said things like: 'The agony of power.'

And!

Ms Sevigny showed the kinds of clothes she likes to wear herself: hip, indie, and cool. And the Sixties-style-meets-music-festival collection of thrown-on separates and mini-dresses neatly fits in with this East Village cool-girl image.

Among the musical highlights: Kim Gordon and DNA's Ikue Mori played with Bleached, the all-girl surf rockers.

And here's a snippet about the show from... MTV...

The cold, dead stares, wtf? That's not what I recall from the 60s.

These chicks should be smiling and having fun wearing those clothes.

Would have been fun to attend - guess it was by invitation only?

Wow...that's rilly, rilly kuel. MTV was there too? How 'hip'...or should I say 'hep'. Those trendoids are such 'hep-cats',

Wow waht a bunch of ignoramuses. They don't surprise me though because they will always win, always be one step ahead of the game. Calling them ignoramuses will only make them laugh harder and get them more free publicity. The joke is on us. Thanks girls.

I wish some of the crusties who hang out by the church had shown up and joined in the fun, but Chloe probably had them pushed aside, because they don't belong in her East Village.

Great clothes but like VH McKenzie said, the models seem oddly undead -- the opposite of the amphetamine fueled mid-1960s. Everything has gone to shit since Andy W died and a lot of trendtypes seem to be trying to project his pre-shooting Factory vibe. And getting it all wrong. Maybe Chloe should have hired Gerard Malanga to whip them into shape.

I like the clothes, and Chloe has always been a sweet person to run into. The girls narrating that MTV clip though are pretty retarded.

The church was surrounded by people with huge cameras and endless SUVs pulling up and spewing rich hipsters. Happened to be walking by... did not experience a trace of the East Village that I've known since the late 70s...

Gospel according to Matthew, Mark, and Deuteronomy said...

Matthew 21:12 Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.

Mark 11:17 And as he taught them, he said, "Is it not written: "'My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations'? But you have made it 'a den of robbers.'"

Deuteronomy 5:4-21 You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
