Bravo brothers: New York-based fashion designers Dean and Dan Caten are also telegenic identical twins and the upcoming hosts of Bravo’s latest on-air creative competition Launch My Line. But, claims Dan, the reality-show tension won’t be sibling rivalry: “We work together and have the same tastes…total balance between the two of us. True brotherly love! It’s our job to give the fashion tips. Even as kids, we were strong-minded. We knew what we liked.”
Downtown stakeout: Where do they find a street-level view of fashion in NYC? “We love to see what’s going on around the Lower East Side, East Village and Brooklyn,” says Dean. “We don’t have a lot of time to shop, as we make our own clothing, but we do love vintage shopping in Brooklyn.”
Manhattan must-have: “You’re never without a great leather tote in NYC, because it’s practical, functional, and only looks better with a beating," Dan says.
