Rachel Antonoff is no ordinary designer. Ever since she returned to New York Fashion Week after a brief hiatus, she's staged her shows like a murder mystery, a science fair, a dollhouse, and a high school sock hop. With her spring/summer 2016 show a day away, we got up close and personal with the designer and had her answer a quick survey of questions that delve into her new collection (no spoilers, promise) and her personal life. And it takes all of 10 seconds to read—we timed it.
