Although I didn't think he was the most talented designer on Launch My Line, I did love his personality. This is a press release I received this week:
NYC, NY 5/19/10. Fashion Icon, Celebrity Patrick McDonald is entering the licensing arena. Seeking product lines related to fashion is a natural for this Beau Brummell. He is a perennial front row favorite at New York Fashion week, so much so that he appeared front row in the movie Sex in the City during the fashion show scene. He is a feast for the paparazzi often photographed by Bill Cunningham of The New York Times and countless books and fashion chronicles. He recently competed in Bravo TV's Launch my Line where he was one of last designer contestants to leave.
He is the epitome of Dandyism, "A piquant sumptuousness in attire, a preoccupation with effect, an elegant admission of vanity, distinctly reminiscent to the French court.--Giving meticulous attention to dress."
John Peale Bishop, The Golden Age of the Dandy (1920) -- Vanity Fair (The Viking Press, Inc.) (1960)
Licensing rights for Patrick McDonald - The Dandy will be available through the offices of LA PRESSE PR 1 Penn Plaza 36 Floor New York City, New York 10119.
