Mickey Sills of Miss
Scanty won the Mercury Milan Style Award and his
show on September 9, 2006 was one frolicking party.
The Miss Scanty collection features mix and match
bikini brief and tops, drawstring pants, tank tops
and short nightgowns. The models cavorted on the
runway in bra tops and pajama bottoms ending in
a free for all pillow fight. It was a cotten candy
But there is more
about this cloting line: Scanty is having a huge
open to the public model searlch for for Scanty
next week - Wednesday, October 4, 2006 from 6-8
at Bloomingdale's uptown in NYC.
The story behind this event is
interesting too (quoted from the Think Publications
Relatioins press release):
"Scanty is one of the most
popular pajama brands around (tons of celebs love
it and its regularly featured on "The OC");
Elle magazine held a contest
during the months before Fashion Week NYC where
readers could vote for one
of three designers to be the winner of the Mercury
Milan Style Award.
Mercury (the car company) would sponsor a full out
fashion show at NYC and
Miami Fashion weeks - it's a great program that
gives voice to newer
designers who don't have enough capital to participate
in the Tents.
Long story short - Scanty - the
crazy pajama brand form Los Angeles won the
award and took NYC fashion week by storm with its
unconventional approach! NOW we are looking for
a new spokesmodel to tour with the brand since its
getting so much great attention and Bloomingdale's
is hosting the open-casting call!
It's sure to be a fun and lively
event which draws a crowd! The next Miss
Scanty could be anyone who attends!"
