Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez Are Growing Their Own Turkey on a Farm

Lazaro Hernandez

Last night at RxArt's the Party held at Milk Gallery, we found ourselves wondering how Thanksgiving works for fashion types. Do the production values of Thanksgiving rival those of the pre-fall collections? Yes, apparently. Proenza Schouler designer Lazaro Hernandez's turkey might as well be couture. "We're growing our own," he said. He and design partner Jack McCollough own an organic farm in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, where they are harvesting their own meal. "If you're going to eat meat, you should know where it comes from," he said. "We have twenty turkeys. We're actually selling them. They're grass-fed, free-range, no cages." He professed to be something of an amateur farmer ("We go and take care of the animals"), though he and Jack aren't out back bloodying their well-manicured fashion hands. "We don't do the slaughtering. We were there when a cow was slaughtered and two pigs. It's intense," he added. We wait with baited breath for the Proenza for Citarella capsule line.
