From Tami:

I came across photos from a fashion show by designer Wynn Smith. His line is called "wink" and, for fall, his inspiration was American Gothic and The Smiths. Tee shirts and other items of clothing were printed with lines such as "Bigmouth Strikes Again".

Here is a link to the page.

"American Gothic" was the theme for Wink's '80s-inspired collection, which included direct references to such pop-culture icons as The Smiths. T-shirts and leggings were inscribed with "Bigmouth Strikes Again" in bold letters; dark, loose coats, reminiscent of Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Clubwere worn with zip pants and flat ankle boots. There were also pleated skirts, low-waisted sweatshirt dresses and satin-cuffed jeans—ideal urban-combat gear. The show ended with a navy-washed strapless dress—the one that the bad, pretty girl, who in junior high smoked in between classes, would have worn to the prom.

Is Moz going to sue the designer for royalties next? I think the designer should make one that says "Devious, truculent & unreliable" hehe...
