Turns out Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders isn't just a CFDA award-winning designer—he's also quite the comedian. In a Q&A with W mag's Editors Blog, he reveals that the one thing he'd never design is "adult diapers", and that New York fashion types will never understand "the importance of exceptionally good Mexican food in one's life". When asked how he'd respond if Paris Hilton asked to borrow his clothes, he replied "[I'd tell her] That the moon is on fire and she better get outside and help put it out right this instant." And no, he's never planning to participate in LA Fashion Week. Ever. Just in case you were wondering. [W]
