Showing at The Standard, Highline, Ostrovsky’s casting of actual dads made for a refreshing change in the mix of a season full of stick-thin models.

We love his cultural reference to the “dad bod”, gone viral by shirtless photos of Leo DiCaprio straddling a water gun all over the Internet.
In addition to the humor, Ostrovsky recently told the now defunct Style.com about his heartfelt vision behind the collection:
I just want to inspire people of my size and my gender to be comfortable in their own skin, because it’s OK to have a mediocre body and very, very high cholesterol, as long as you look great doing it.
We are laughing and inspired – #NewYorkFashionWeek gold.
