Tara Subkoff, who recently underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor, has resurrected her defunct label Imitation of Christ. WWD reports: "With the decade behind her and a clean bill of health, Subkoff is now to return to making clothes, and this fashion week, she will be reviving her Imitation label with a show at MAC & Milk on Sept. 15. 'I am supergood,' Subkoff said, speaking on the phone from Los Angeles, where she has been spending much of her time since her surgery and recovery. 'It’s definitely very different than before. I am completely deaf on my right side, and have no balance, so I have vertigo all the time. Besides that, I am lucky to be alive. I have more energy, because I was in so much pain before. I think I am just a better person. I am back in the land of the living and getting ready to relaunch Imitation, and making it better than ever.'" [WWD]
