It’s no secret that we LOVE Nasty Gal here at MTV Style. From off-kilter back-to-school buys to early trend trys the Cali-based online retailer is a definite go-to around these parts. You can imagine, then, how ECSTATIC we were to be invited to the burgeoning brand’s New York Fashion Week party – a celebration for both the Nasty Gal debut collection AND the launch of their print magazine Super Nasty! We EVEN got to chat with founder Sophia Amoruso (our collective idol and girl crush) about all the exciting news. #DEAD

Sophia and the Nasty Gal team held their celebratory soiree at The Westway the West Village former-gentlemen’s-club-turned-nightclub, and put together more than just a party. Sophia, who said, “Music has always been a huge influence in my life and a huge inspiration for me,” steeped her party in music. Devonté Hynes a.k.a. Blood Orange played an epic full set, complete with wailing electric guitar, trips into the crowd via The Westway’s oblong stage, and LOTS of Prince vibes. Also at the Nasty Gal party was Syd, Tha Kid – one half of Odd Future’s The Internet – pumping out one of the best party DJ sets we’ve heard in a while. Check out what else Sophia Amoruso had to say about the relationship between fashion and music and the rest of our interview with her below!
