Project Runway: Jeffrey's Cosa Nostra Line in NYC
It should be no big surprise that one of my favorite TV shows is Bravo's Project Runway. I have been watching since season one and had already proclaimed my love for Season 2's Nick (in a platonic way, obviously). So how fantastic is it that one of my good friends, Mark (a guy I used to work for), is related to this season's Jeffrey Sebelia! Mark found out where Jeffrey's Cosa Nostra line is sold in New York, and early this afternoon we ventured to Esthete, a boutique in the meatpacking on 14th St. between 9th and 10th Aves.
We entered the cooler-than-thou store and quickly located several Cosa Nostra leather jackets for both men and women. I tried one of them on and Mark was able to quickly fire off a few digital shots before the princess of a CLERK yelled at us that "there are no photos in the store!" So we obliged and continued inspecting the remarkable style, workmanship and artistry that go into each and every one of Jeffrey's items. Now, this stuff is not exactly affordable, but the level of work on these items fully indicates that this guy has the goods. Very exciting stuff that should be worn by the hottest rock chicks in the biz. And the pictured model should obviously be gracing the cover of French Vogue.
Watch the Project Runway finale on Bravo on Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST.
