The netherworld between college and actual adulthood can be one of the most confusing times of life. Not yet fully formed, not truly who you’re going to be, you crawl clumsily through jobs, apartments and relationships. Lena Dunham, the writer and director of the new film “Tiny Furniture,” knows exactly what we’re talking about.

Up until recently, fashion blogger Tavi
‘s professional work in the fashion industry could be called “gimmicky”—projects that rely on Tavi’s character as a young blogger. Yet lately, the smart fashion enthusiast has chosen to remain behind the scenes of her work. Like in this video she produced in collaboration with Alia Raza and Derek Blasberg and starring Julia Restoin-Roitfeld
. We’re not exactly clear on what “story produced” means. The Cut refers to her as the screenwriter, but the clip has no words, so we’re assuming Tavi came up with Roitfeld’s actions, costume ideas, and props. Keep reading »
