Proenza Schouler designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough showed up on the Martha Stewart Show recently to recreate the tie-dye effects that were featured in the spring collection. Seems like Martha took  the reins and ended up giving the boys a lesson. [Coco Perez]

Proenza released a limited edition tie-dye racerback tank exclusively on their website, to coincide with the appearance.  [Coutorture]

Charitybuzz is holding a fashion-frenzied online charity auction for The RFK Centre for Justice and Human Rights that went live today.  Anna Wintour is auctioning off a week at Vogue and a spot at a show at NY Fashion Week, Diane von Furstenberg is offering a month-long internship at DVF, and Gwen Stefani has put up a ticket to her NYC L.A.M.B fashion preview this fall. Bidding started today and goes until April 29.

Whatever the weather, keep that jacket on: Burberry has hired a slew of photographers from the famed Magnum Photos agency to scour the globe and capture those wearing the brand’s signature trenchcoat for Burberry’s Art of the Trench website. [WWD]

Luxury just went up another notch with the announcement from LVMH (you know, the parent company of Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Givenchy…should we go on?) that they’re expanding into the hotel business.

“Stop the sag!” screams six billboards around Brooklyn. The campaign, launched by Senator Eric Adams, is aimed towards men that wear baggy pants with their underwear sticking out. Phat farm founder Russell Simmons chimes in on the campaign, saying, “I like Sen. Adams, but this is wrong-headed and a waste of time. This is the latest example of adults trying to repress the creativity and individuality of kids. Why would kids want to dress like Sen. Adams? There is no connection to saggy pants and the ability to succeed. Just look at what buttoned-up America has done to the rest of the world and each other. Why can’t kids be different?” [The Cut]
