New York Fashion Week is officially over. After a whole week of madness running from show to show and interviewing the most talented fashion designers, I look back on the past week with unbelievable awe. “Did i really do all that?!?”
Somebody pinch me.
The most memorable moment was meeting Carine Roitfeld, Previous Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue. I have been fascinated by this woman for years! She is one of the best-if not the BEST stylist on the planet! She has worked with top talent ranging from photgraphers, models, celebrities, and clients. She recently launched her book, Irreverent as well as styled the Fall 2011 campaign for Barneys, NYC titled, Carine’s World.
With all that influence, one would think she is detached from reality, but what i found was her refreshing attitude: gracious, kind, and unpretentious.
Bravo Carine! I wish you all the best!!!
PS: Still digesting all the collections I’ve seen. Will post my top 5 favorite collections soon! ;)
So excited to get my copy of this book!!! Carine is my favorite fashion icon of this generation! A must get for your fashion library.
"Where is the world of fashion going, in your opinion?
Fashion isn’t as much fun as it once was. It’s less light-hearted, less spontaneous. Fashion has become an industry, one that increasingly stifles creation. Sometimes I go to runway shows and I feel like I am at a medical convention, or a corporate seminar. There’s no excitement anymore, no amazement, none of the madness you could experience even a few years back … I respect this business, and I understand the risks involved, but I also want to preserve a degree of naivete and spontaneity. Because fashion is nothing without its carefree side.”
