Mother-daughter team leads fashion show for brand run by sisters

Is this what they mean by family style?

Vidak For Congress is ​​told that there were two families behind a show at New York Fashion Week this season. A show for Deviate, a brand founded by two sisters, was run by a mother-daughter team.

Kelly Cutrone, 56, the veteran producer and reality star behind the PR fashion company People’s Revolution, recruited her Parsons student daughter, Ava Cutrone, to lead the event for two rising stars of the fashion world, brand designer Kelsey Tucker and corporate brain Cassidy Tukker.

We were told that the check-in desk was staffed entirely by Ava’s childhood and college friends.

Meanwhile, Cutrone’s fellow former “America’s New Top Model” judge, Nigel Barker, and his wife Crissy Barker were on hand to watch. their 13-year-old daughter walks on the Tuckers show.

Married to the Mob designer Leah McSweeney, who to our knowledge was not related to anyone at the event, was in the lone audience in the Altman Building, as were entertainment power attorney David Hryck and hospitality impresarios Andrew Chapman and Josh Wyatt. .

According to the Deviate website, the Detroit-based sisters took different directions early in their careers, with Kelsey moving to LA to work for major designers, including Vera Wang, while Cassidy ventured into entrepreneurship and the start-up world. But since then, they’ve pooled their interests to collaborate on the brand they believe is “at the intersection of art, fashion and community.”
