In a space traditionally reserved for antique-based design, Collective .1 focuses exclusively on 20th and 21st century works.

We sat down with co-creators, actors and writers Chris Long and Carson Alexander, writer Kristopher Knight and feature actors Chad White, Rusty Joiner and Nick Matthews to talk urinals, dog whisperers and their 'same differences.'

Armin van Buuren loves music. It might seem like a trite statement for someone who's had the storied career most musicians dream of, but talk to him for a few minutes and it becomes clear.

For the 600th episode of his live radio broadcast, A State Of Trance, the renowned Dutchman became the 2nd DJ to play (and sell out) Madison Square Garden. We had a chance to sit down with Armin before his show to find out what he thinks about the New York crowd, how he learned from other DJs like Skrillex, and where he believes electronic music will be in 5 years.

If a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears it, did it make a sound? The age old philosophical question could easily be re-imagined for today's world in reference to social media. "If I did X, but didn't Tweet, Instagram, Vine, Montaj it, did it really happen?" As the fashion industry continues to embrace the digital sphere, the Style Coalition created the Fashion 2.0 Awards to honor outstanding achievements in digital and communication strategies. Last night's 4th annual event, sponsored by SIN THIRST SIN Energy Drink, was held at the SVA theatre and hosted by the crowd pleasing Robert Verdi. Simon Doonan's key note speech had attendees in stitches before categories were reviewed and the winners announced.
