Lackadaisical designers aren’t the only people Tim Gunn is gunning for during Project Runway‘s current season. The show’s resident style mentor has had it with clothing brands that don’t make full-figured fashion work. “I’ve had my own moments in front of designers when I’ve actually said, ‘You know, there’s a market here for expanding your work, and here it is,’” he tells Huffington Post. “And frankly, there are two markets: The women who are larger than the 12, and then there are women who are petite. And most designers that I talk to have absolutely no interest in addressing either of those populations, which I find repugnant.” [Huffington Post]

Could Alex Drexler be filling his father’s shoes?! Mickey Drexler‘s son has launched Alex Mill, a namesake clothing line that caters to (*drumroll, please*) dapper father-son duos. “Our kids’ clothing is just shrunken-down versions of the men’s,” he says while comparing his work to that of J. Crew and Crewcuts. “But our line isn’t too matchy; the kids’ version of a men’s shirt will have different details, like fun buttons in all different colors and sizes. My designer [Alex Casertano] and I take a lot of pride in our buttons.” [The Cut]
