So last night, the world (or at least Bravo TV watchers) was shocked to see that Johnny R. had copied a Lanvin dress almost exactly on The Fashion Show
. The Fashion Show
is supposed to be about innovative, up and coming designers so obviously, Isaac Mizrahi, Kelly Rowland and Fern Mallis were outraged that Johnny would even think of creating a knock off of such a well known designer.
I had a chance to talk to Johnny today about what went wrong. To be honest, I felt bad for the guy because he just sounded miserable when he answered the phone. I'm guessing that journalists had been ripping into him all day. So, I decided to start the interview out nice and easy; give him a little time to feel comfortable. If you'd like to hear the interview, listen below or you can just skip down to read the highlights.
