Converge to Design Full Fashion Line for 2012 Fashion Week

Metallic hardcore outfit Converge has been tapped to design a full clothing line for the 2012 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. A spokesman for IMG Fashion, who produces the entire event, said the following via press release:

“Fashion is changing. From formal jeans with pumps a few years ago to leggings and sweater dresses now, the whole fashion industry is descending into a hot mess as designers try to one-up each other. Our lead designers and consultants here at IMG Fashion love Converge’s style and wanted to start the trend to “Sophisticated Hardcore.” From the whirling artistry on the graphic tees, the cleverly matched shoe-pant-top-accessory combinations, and even Jacob Bannon’s unbelievably luscious neck tattoo, we at IMG Fashion believe Converge has a sense of clothing design that nobody else has in our modernist world, and can lead “Sophisticated Hardcore” into boardrooms and beach houses in 2012.”

Converge will work with noted designer Alexander McQueen in what IMG Fashion calls a “real meets fantasy pairing” to design and produce their dozen looks for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2012. When Jacob Bannon was reached via cell phone at McCorley’s Old Ale House in Brooklyn, he said simply, “I told you, neck tattoos are the shit.”
