Temptu was proud to collaborate with New York fashion designer Benjamin Cho for his Fall 2008 Collection.
Temptu teamed up with Cho to create a limited edition temporary tattoo transfer featuring the art of downtown
art sensation Dan Colen. Top models Patricia Schmid and Milagros Schmoll wore the limited edition body makeup
full sleeve “look” made of red lipstick kisses.
With a long history of collaborating with the world’s foremost artists to create top of the line body art – from
Matthew Barney to KiKi Smith – as well as a rich history of designing makeup looks for New York Fashion Week,
Temptu embraced this intersection of art and fashion as a natural fit.
Chelsea’s Altman Building was filled with art world stars, It Girls and Boys, and top fashion press from far and wide,
ambient band Growing played the soundtrack live, and the excitement was heady in anticipation of the show.
Cho did not disappoint – as always, his clothes were thrilling, imaginative, and beautiful to behold. Temptu was
honored to be included in his vision.
Sure to be a coveted insider item, Temptu created limited edition tote bags featuring the Dan Colen for Temptu
body art exclusively for the Fall 08 fashion show. Chloe Sevigny held hers tight, and Style.com featured the bag
while instructing attendees to get to their seats on time or risk losing this hot, hipster must-have.
