Sue Stemp: Good Drinks, Bad View

The glorious Players Club on Gramercy Park was the setting for the debut collection by this designer, who was once a staple of the nightlife scene (her unofficial nickname was Boozy Suzy.) The crowd, appropriately, was in a party mood, the glasses were clinking, Stemp's parents were there from England, beaming. Only one thing was wrong—someone forgot to lay down a runway, or even clear a visible path for the models. We couldn't see a thing. Not a thing.
