Despite selling off Imitation of Christ last year, the label she founded with Matthew Damhave, actress and fashion designer Tara Subkoff continues to be a presence during fashion week. (Even when she’s not making topless models push vacuum cleaners across the floor.)
On Thursday, September 4, Ms. Subkoff will screen her third short film, Fame Fatale at Norwood, which she made for Bebe. The film stars Danity Kane’s Aubrey O’Day and socialite Lydia Hearst. (In the film, Ms. Hearst is wearing Ms. Subkoff’s collection for Bebe.)
Ms. Hearst will co-host the screening and Arden Wohl is expected to attend. Of Ms. Hearst, Ms. Subkoff told Women’s Wear Daily, “She truly reminds me of the classic ‘Hitchcock blonde’—he would have loved her and she would have been a huge star in his films if we could go back in time."
But Ms. Subkoff won’t be able to sleep in on Friday following the film’s celebration because she is also helping out as the artistic director for Form’s Spring 2009 show, the line designed by former Project Runway contestant Jerry Tam.
According to The Cut, Ms. Subkoff and Mr. Tam know each other from when the latter was an intern at Imitation of Christ. "I had no idea that he would have so much respect for me that he would bring me on board!" Ms. Subkoff writes in the press release. "It’s so great to be able to support one of my first interns at such a crucial time. Feels karmic and cosmic."
We’re glad the girl isn’t totally dropping out of Fashion Week. And perhaps the Fashion Week gods will smile upon us and let Ms. Subkoff spice up Mr. Tam’s show with some of her theatrics.
