Here's Shaunie O'Neal wearing Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman at Ra'mon's New York Fashion Week show on September 11. The dress was originally created last winter for the "Rare Affections" collection I co-curated with Emma Berg of at the mnfashion holiday boutique. She's wearing ROX necklace and earrings by Robyne Robinson.

Check out the original sketch and the dress in the promotional images:

Here's a bit of juicy gossip from backstage at Ra'mon-Lawrence's NY Fashion Week show regarding Shaunie on Page Six. (It's true, because I was there!)

Here's "Project Runway" season 6 contestants Althea Harper and Christopher Straub with season 3 contestant Katherine Gerdes, center, at Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman's Fashion Week Show last Friday. Here's Blogging Project Runway's review, where they call the collection "colorful and fun." They also post links to my blog about the lead-up to the show and photos. They note the contestants at his show here.

Blogging Project Runway reported that Tim Gunn was the winner of Ra'mon's Episode 3 neoprene yellow dress. According to a recent interview, Tim said he plans to give it to Nina Garcia as a gift. No one recalls Nina ever wearing a Project Runway design before, so regardless if Tim bought it with good intentions or to make a point to Nina, it could be a big deal, should Nina don the dress.

Ra'mon makes news in the NewYork Post for his toilet-dying antics in the same episode.

Project Rungay has more shots of Ra'mon's little blue dress from last week's episode of Project Runway. They say it's a pretty dress but perhaps "a bit much." That's our Ra'mon. Here's their review of Christopher's dress.

In local fashion news:

City Pages reviews Clapperclaw, which included fashions by Laura Fulk, Hilary Falk, and Emily Kuznar. Unfortunately, there's yet to be any images posted of Laura Fulk's contribution. For their part, Anthem Heart created a Grindhouse-inspired shirt design.
