Dstld, the direct-to-consumer premium denim and basics brand, has set a tall order for itself, armed with $3.1 million and plans to refine its supply chain, boost the product and ramp up marketing.

(Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
