Terence Koh, The New Gothic Birkin Defacer

by KATHERINE NEIFELD · October 20, 2010

Frequent Lady Gaga collaborator -- have you seen him counting 88 Pearls into a Bowl with the songstress herself? -- Mr. Terence Koh styles himself as a New Gothic artist. And in case you were doubting the authenticity of such a dark classification.... consider the following: Koh sold his own feces for $500,000 -- don't fret, it was gold-plated  -- in the tradition of the conceptualists. (Or very savvy business people.)-
