You can ask my mom!—Zac Posen

When I was 10, I went shopping alone when my mom was sick—I came home with a yellow oxford shirt, a burgundy v-neck, and black jeans. Nobody ever went shopping with me again.—Hal Rubenstein

I owned several Norma Kamali oversized shirts with shoulder pads. I added shoulder pads to everything!—Lela Rose

An Alice in Wonderland-esque outfit that I refused to take off for, like, 18 months.— Elettra Wiedemann

A snow bunny suit!—Terence Koh

I wore sparkly jelly shoes. I was, like, 7 years old and weighed 11 pounds.—Kyle Anderson

I had this crazy Gucci silk blouss; it may have been my father’s—Adam Glassman

I liked this puffy little smock-dress. My mom thought it looked like a maternity dress.—Lynn Yaeger
