• The Gap New Design Editions are available online today. The line of white-shirt-inspired clothes is designed by CFDA award winners including Phillip Lim, ThreeAsFour, and Band of Outsiders. [eye4style]

• The line is also in stores. Though it didn’t exactly inspire a vicious shopping frenzy, a sales associate at the Gap on Fifth Avenue and 17th Street said about 200 sold within the store’s first half-hour of business. [Racked]

• Guess what! Charleston is having a Fashion Week. Guess what else! A poor designer fell through the runway when she took her bow at the end of the show. The video clip isn’t even funny, it’s just painful. [Fashion Week Daily]

• There’s a new show on WE called Bulging Brides, in which women buy wedding dresses two sizes too small and try to fit into them by the big day with an insane exercise routine. Here’s a clip, pole-dancing workout included. [Feministing]

• Here’s another video clip of Simon Doonan explaining to Mo Rocca his philosophy on how women should dress. “Say no to ho!” he says. Unless, of course, “at heart” you’re a pole dancer. [Fashionista]

• The Les Biches collection by Ostwald Helgason is really quite stunning and Giles Deacon–esque. And no, it doesn’t mean “the bitches” — it refers to a Ballets Russes production. [Style Bubble]
