JT LeRoy, Fashion Designer
Savannah Knoop used to dress up as JT LeRoy. Now, nearly a year after removing her hoaxy disguise, she’s trying on another title: fashion designer. Yes, it seems the woman who used to pose as a transgendered prostitute now creates androgynous outfits. When Stephen Beachy began unmasking the JT myth in a October 2005 New York profile, he called the faux-memoirist “a wig and sunglasses floating around a dizzying production of narrative.” A lengthy article in Sunday’s San Francisco Chronicle documented Knoop’s fashion line TINC, as well as her other gig as a waitress in Oakland. From someone who used to masquerade as someone who didn’t exist, expect frumpy fabulous.
