Video: The Making of Asher Levine’s Spring 2013 Collection

Known for his weird and wonderful designs worn by adventurous dressers like Lady Gaga, the Black Eyed Peas, and Johnny Weir (who modeled in his show a few seasons ago), Levine gives us an exclusive first look at the making of his spring 2013 collection. Judging by the video, which was filmed at Levine’s studio in Tribeca, we’ll see lots of leather mixed with rubbery synthetic materials molded into spines and hidelike surfaces. Originally from the southwest coast of Florida, Levine says he’s constantly inspired by the wildlife he saw growing up: “Really weird creatures … sometimes you don’t even know what they are.”
