See Bill Nye strut at Nick Graham's fashion show


Intelligence is always in style.

At an event for New York Fashion Week: Men's, scientist Bill Nye (yes, of TV's "Bill Nye the Science Guy") danced down the runway in celebration of Nick Graham's latest spring-summer collection.

The TV host and the designer also chatted with Circa about their collaboration.

"One of the things [I like] about the Nick Graham suit is that it fits me," Nye, modeling a gray suit designed by Graham, told Circa after the show. "I'm still built for speed -- this is right off the shelf."

Last year, Nye and Graham started collaborating on a line of bow ties, fostering a continuing bromance.

"[Nye] is the bow-tie guy, forever," Graham told Circa. "I met him at an event, and I said, 'You should definitely make bow ties.' And so, we got together about six [to] eight months ago, and it's been nothing but amazing. And besides that, he dances on the runway! To me, he's interesting. He's a scientist. And he's so smart. I love that guy."

For someone who competed on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," Nye downplayed his salsa prowess.

"I'm OK, but the [fashion model I danced with at Graham's show] recognized right away that I have a swing background... That other salsa step that she was really rocking, I couldn't keep up."

Like Nye last Wednesday, Graham put on a show that their shared audience appeared to adore.

Graham said 50s Cuban culture inspired his seasonal collection of linen, madras and florals.

"[Cuba] is like, frozen in time," he added. "It's like a dinosaur in amber, but it's beautiful."
