KV + Kim Hastreiter’s Spec-tacular CFDA Award Dinner Celebration

Kim Hastreiter, Editor-in-Chief of PAPER magazine personally asked me to make my KV Red Nerd Specs for her guests celebrating her CFDA award, and I was just floored! She originally commissioned me to make them in red when I met her at PAPER Projects LA, so I have her to thank for inspiring that particular design.

Betsey Johnson!

 Anna Sui!

An NYC icon, Kim is a monument to fashion, art and culture reporting, especially about the ground level where the youngest, boldest and sometimes strangest movements flourish, so her Eugenia Sheppard CFDA Award is more than well deserved. Past recipients of this award include Vogue’s towering André Leon Talley and New York Times Fashion Critic Cathy Horyn.



Congratulations to Kim and check out more photos from PAPER Magazine + Target CFDA Celebration Dinner (I see you holding those KVs Diane von Furstenberg!)
