GREETINGS FROM SEVENTH AVENUE: Thanks to Bruce Springsteen, Cynthia Rowley has a new gig. The designer has created a children’s T-shirt with a rainbow-colored image of The Boss’ high-flying strumming for his current concert tour. A self-described “big fan,” Rowley said she was approached by his manager to offer her creative flair. Springsteen’s wife, Patty Scialfa, has bought the designer’s clothes through the years.
“Coming to New York from Illinois, you weren’t really an East Coaster unless you were into Bruce. It was an initiation into New York life,” said Rowley, who will take in a Giants Stadium show this week. “I just did it out of pure love. If you like someone’s work in music, art or dance, it’s fun to collaborate.”
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
