Jeffrey Sebelia: Tim, Stop Wearing Banana Republic!
As the Fug Girls pointed out, Project Runway winner Jeffrey Sebelia was the first on his feet at the end of Vera Wang’s fashion show. Jada Yuan caught him as he headed out the door.
Are you in town seeing other shows?
This is it.
Why just Vera?
Because I love what she does. It was a beautiful show. It was just deliciously soft. It was so sort of edgy and dark. I like her direction.
What have you been up to since the end of Project Runway?
Selling my Cosa Nostra men’s and women’s lines and doing really well.

Jay McCarroll and Tim Gunn Still Have Beef
Jay McCarroll is lying low this Fashion Week. His first collection, which debuted in the fall, will be released next month by Urban Outfitters. What’s next? Certainly not a reunion with Tim Gunn. We talked to McCarroll at the Gen Art fashion showcase, where he took the opportunity to get his feelings about the Project Runway host off his chest.
Your spring 2007 show was great.
Yeah. I thought it was good. No one fucking said anything.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our two days of roaming Bryant Park, it’s that there is no such thing as “Hurry up, the show starts in 30 seconds.”
Our evening began with a 6 p.m. Karen Walker show, her first-ever U.S. presentation. Now, when neither of you is a local and one of you was born without a sense of direction, it’s best if the other is not terribly trusting. Sadly, that’s not the case.
