Greta Constantine designers search for American interest in menswear line
The second instalment of their blog series for the National Post finds Toronto designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong of Greta Constantine in the midst of New York fashion week. First on their agenda is a stop at a Tribeca Starbucks, as part of the process of “assimilating into American culture.” (Perhaps the trek to the Times Square Tim Hortons was too far.) Next, the two discussed The City and the spectacularly petulant cattiness of Olivia Palermo and Erin Kaplan (two of The City’s main “cast members”) while shopping at Marc by Marc Jacobs and the Alexander McQueen store.
Finally, the pair were courted by a PR firm interested in their menswear line, Ezra Constantine. The rep informed the surprised duo that “Americans follow Canadian fashion and media.” No surprise, really, considering the talented designers we’re pumping out these days. Still, no sneak peek at the fall collection, so curious fans will have to keep reading.
