On Wednesday night, fashion insiders packed the J.Crew Men’s shop on Fifth Ave. in New York to celebrate CFDA Fashion Fund winner Billy Reid and runners up Prabal Gurung and Eddie Borgo, all of whom designed capsule collections for the mass retailer. The party theme reflected Reid’s southern heritage — ”Sweet Home Alabama” played over the chatter, biscuits and fried chicken were passed around, and spiked sweet tea was served in mason jars.
Reid has designed a seven-piece capsule collection for J.Crew which is available online now through May. Gurung and Borgo have also designed collections, which will be available in June and July respectively.
