Last night there were two major fashion film premieres to hit theaters. The only issue: each event was located on a separate coast. Here on the East Coast, Derek Lam unveiled the a slew of shorts to accompany his 10 Crosby fragrance range. Meanwhile, the West Coast played host to Kenzo‘s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, who were unveiling a flick titled Snowbird.
