DESIGN SCENE EXCLUSIVES

For the session Alecia is wearing selected pieces from MSGM, Homoco, Reebok, Missoni, American Apparel, Frye, John Hardy, Timex, Prabal Gurung, Unilqo, Goorin Bros, Thom Browne, Title of Work, Landlord, Nº 21, Geox, and Dsquared2. Special thanks to Lorcan & Genie Otway and Theatre 80 St Marks – theatre set design by Chris Cumberbatch, Lisa Cannistraci and Henrietta Hudson.

Although Pride Month has come to a close, with this online exclusive we take a moment to remember LBTQIA legend Stormé DeLarverie. Heralded as the guardian of the lesbians in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Stormé was also part of a drag troupe called the Jewel Box Revue, the 25 men and A Girl show where she performed in men’s attire as a drag king. Her sultry baritone voice graced many jazz bars, she was one of the many unique subjects of photographer Diane Arbus, was a bouncer at the famed Cubby Hole latterly Henrietta Hudson, and is rumored to be among the first to take a stand during the Stonewall Riots. Stormé was a fierce advocate for the community, which undeniably has shaped a world for generations to come. This is a tribute to a hero.
