Dossier x Worth Motorcycle Company

For the launch of our tenth issue, we at Dossier wanted to do something a little more meaningful than throwing just one more party during fashion week. Instead, we decided to channel our resources into organizing a charity art auction. The organization that is benefiting, Worth Motorcycle Company, is a new non-profit that teaches New [...]

Longo’s newest show, which opened at Metro Pictures last Thursday, is not so intimate: instead of dreaming children we [...]

Purple Fashion
