Why Heatherette Canceled Their Show: Our Reasons


We love, love, love Heatherette — even though their show is a glamorous debacle every year, and even though we're not always sure where to buy their clothes. Traver Raines and Richie Rich, the house's creative team, are nice, fun, energetic, and brilliant. Every season their train wreck of an exposition is the highlight during Fashion Week. That's why we are hit hard by the news that they won't be showing this February. They were supposed to show at Roseland Ballroom this year, too, which would have meant that everyone could have come, and the after-party would have been glorious. We're trying to find out why they've bailed (they "prefer not to comment," but we'll get it out of them — we run with the same gays, after all), but in the meantime, we've compiled a top ten list of reasons they might have called off the show: 1) They're only doing a "Cruise" collection this year. 2) They, like so many other small fashion houses, fell victim to great glitter shortage of 2008. 3) The only chaps they could find had asses. 4) Tinsley ate something. 5) Boy Meets Boy went back on the air. 6) A six-foot-eight drag queen has Richie and Traver locked up in a basement somewhere in the Village because she didn't get into their last fashion show, even though she WAS INVITED. 7) Lady Bunny ate Lydia Hearst. Totally kidding. She flossed with her. 8) Someone actually wanted to buy something from last season's show, and they had to figure out how to make it again. 9) Richie broke an axle. On his roller skate. 10) Their Amanda Lepore popped. Heatherette Cancels Fashion Show [Fashionista]

Hallowed Slice Location Now in the Hands of Grom Gelato

This week we solved one of the great mysteries of Carmine Street — when will Beard Papa reopen? (This week!) Now it’s time to solve another: What’s going into the space on the corner of Bleecker that used to be the beloved Joe’s Pizza and then Abitino’s? Not another slice joint, it turns out. Nicolo de Rienzo, co-owner of Italian gelato chain Grom, tells us he just started construction on a new store that could open there by the end of April. Grom is also in talks to team with Eataly, the Italian supermarket that plans to install its first U.S. store in the Rock Center area at 18 West 48th Street. Cones of Bleecker, you’re on notice!
