    lorraine goddard---adam ant's ex-wife?!...(his real name is stuart goddard)...

    i met him when i was in college...i worked at the college radio station for a couple of years and we sponsored one of his concerts...(this was before i switched to FIT)he was the absolute love of my life as a teenager..haha...that's how i first learned all the westwood/maclaren history...about S.E.X....and westwood's pirate collection...adam ant was the original punk pirate....antmusic for sexpeople...whatever that means... :heart:

    i can't believe he saved EVERYTHING!!!!!...i want it all...all of it...do you hear me...ahhh!!!
    is she lending any of it to the exhibit?...omg...that would be too much... :wub:

    i'm going online tomorrow and booking a flight...that just kicked for me...i'll regret it forever if i don't go...

    thanks again kit...you're a dream :heart: :flower:

    I had asked about them at her store and new york and, well, they never got back to me because they shut down. They were at a horrible location, hardly any foot traffic at all. Prada has bought up all the good space in soho.

    i wish i could make it for the show...that's bound to be a blast...i think that's cutting it a little close though...i'll probably have to come later and just go to the exhibit on my own...still worth it...

    acid -darling...or anyone else...have you got any idea how long the exhibit will be up for ....

    any info much appreciated...

    thanks mateys :pirate:

    Are you kidding me?!?!?! VW was on the same block as Bagutta, Helmut Lang, Helmut Lang Parfums, and Plein Sud. That is prime real state, my friend. They shut down, because VW curtailed all operations in the US (I guess she wasn't selling much).

    c'mon- let's be serious...they shut down because after 9/11 practically half of soho went out of business...w.bdwy was a ghost town...all the european tourists who usually crowd the neighborhood and make the locals :wacko: were staying very far away from NYC...that store was still new and it couldn't survive the downturn in the market...so, yes, they 'curtailed operations in the US", because they were doing no business...no one was at that time...

    i'm still disappointed... they had some cool stuff and before you knew it they were gone... :(
