Karlie Kloss & Toni Garrn at the Purple Diary Party — NYFW 2011
I love this photo of Karlie Kloss and Toni Garrn on the roof of The Standard for the Purple Diary Party last year — I have hundreds of previously unpublished photos from New York Fashion Week, throughout the week I’ll be sharing some of my favorites…
This is the only NYFW / FNO mixtape you need. My friends Mia Moretti & Caitlin Moe are the hottest (and the, you know, hottest!) thing happening in music right now. Last summer I shot this video of Mia & Caitlin playing an unbelievably energetic and obsessively captivating live set in Hollywood — Mia spinning the hottest new music you don’t even know you love yet mixed with the some of the most iconic pop and rock tracks from the past 50 years while Caitlin’s mind-blowing, impeccable classical violin brings the music to life in ways that make you wonder how the hits (from The Beatles to Daft Punk to M83 to Garbage) weren’t recorded with a classical strings section… there’s nothing like seeing the duo perform live, but along with Harper’s Bazaar, they have put together this mix so you can feel like you’re front-row at Fashion Week any time you wish.
Of course Mia and Caitlin are more than just pretty faces tearing through the fashion world — next week they’ll be playing for the likes of Calvin Klein and Prabal Guring during New York Fashion Week, but this week they’re at the Democratic National Convention, energizing and inspiring young voters to take action through the ROCK THE VOTE organization… they’re truly renaissance women, with a truly dope mixtape.

I found this 2007 photograph of my friend DJ AM that I’ve never published before… It feels like it was yesterday — 5 years ago this week — that he jumped on the decks at Cinespace and set the crowd off. Back then we took it for granted, it wasn’t a special occurrence, it wasn’t a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, it was just what we did every week. My friends Mark, Steve, Cory, Rony, Trevor, Mia… everyone else… we were all so much younger, we didn’t talk about success or being on top or making a living, we were just there go crazy, to party and sweat and dance and have a good time.
A little bit of our world died with Adam, and as much as he is missed, everyone who knew him or was there back in the day is grateful to have experienced his gift. He was the best, and touched so many lives and… I don’t think any of us will ever forget him.
