Subkoff's edgy fashion line Imitation of Christ -- started with Matthew Demhave and trendsetter-pal Chloë Sevigny in 2000 -- pushed the industry in new directions with the launch of a reconstructed collection made completely of existing clothing.
Editors took notice and a new fashion darling was born. (They were green before it was trendy.)
Tara could need up to a year to recover from the surgery, during which time she will be unable to work. To help cover the enormous cost of the complex surgery, lengthy recovery care and the cost of running the business, friends have planned a silent auction art benefit for July 15.
If you would like to donate artwork or a monetary contribution to the benefit, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Checks can be made payable to NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts) and sent to:
Art Production Fund
299 W. Houston Street
New York NY 10014
Our thoughts are with you, Tara!
