Video | SoLost: Billy Reid at Home in Alabama

“So how many people do you know that are equally at home shooting the breeze with fashion grand dame Diana Von Furstenberg or just plain shooting….a deer? As in from a blind? And, of those, how many have shot to the forefront of the fashion world, designing elegantly post-modern Southern threads in a style described by one publication as “Tom Wolfe-meets-Spike Jonze”? And of THOSE, how many decided to place their headquarters not in Paris, Milan or New York, but in Florence? No, not Italy — Alabama. Florence, Alabama.” (189)
