On March 17th Roosevelt Field Mall shoppers felt the craze of Kellan Lutz as the Twilight Saga heartthrob joined Danny Guez- Abbot + Main co-designer and Founder of Dylan George- at Bloomingdale’s to celebrate the introduction of Dylan George and Abbot + Main’s Spring 2012 collections. Though only created 4 years ago, the L.A.- inspired luxury men’s and women’s wear designs have made their mark with celebrity clientele such as Anne Hathaway, Nicole Richie, Ryan Phillippe, and even style extraordinaire, Lady Gaga, making it the perfect addition to the high-end duds Bloomingdale’s offers.
The Joseph Abboud Fall/Winter 2012 presentation was the brand’s reintroduction to the runway for the first time in seven years, and will certainly be hard to follow next season. The grandiose event took place in the expansive Marine & Aviation Terminal at Pier 57. Before the show backstage buzzed as expected and we could not have been more thrilled to witness it first hand (peep the slideshow below!). Creative Director Bernardo Rojo mingled among models, hair and makeup artists, and the backstage crew, taking interviews and exuding a surprisingly calm aura only a man as distinguished as he could possess. Deputy Editor Dan Koday and his teen.com video crew were present, providing comic relief while conducting “20 Questions to Ask a Model” interviews. Question topics ranging from American history (how old is the United States) to pop culture (what did Beyonce name her baby?) served to find out if it’s possible to have beauty and brains! The handsome fellas either impressed us with witty and accurate responses or ended up stumped otherwise—not to be entirely faulted, native Latvians have an excuse! Meanwhile, hair and makeup transformed the already dapper dudes into true Joseph Abboud men with precisely windblown hair and flawless complexions.

Their latest project, Dream Downtown had a launch party on June 15th, which was described as simply, "Epic."
