It's hard to talk about Adam Selman without thinking about Rihanna, or more specifically, her history-making custom see-through Adam Selman creation encrusted with more than 216,000 Swarovski crystals that she wore to the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards. Frankly, we can't wait to see what else he has up his sleeve. With New York Fashion Week spring/summer 2016 shows rapidly approaching, we got up close and personal with the designer and had him answer a quick survey of questions that delve into his new collection (no spoilers, promise) and his personal life. And it takes all of 10 seconds to read—we timed it.
