“They sent us jackets, and they’re all super nice and flashy, so I don’t wear any of them. I brought the leopard bomber to New York because I heard everybody dresses really nicely in New York.”

“We’ve had people try to use this as an opportunity to launch their careers. You’re merely a guest, a spectator. You can’t go there trying to pick the brains of designers in the industry. There are no photo opps. You have to sign a code of conduct.”
WWD has published an eye-opening insight into the companies selling fashion week tickets to non-industry spectators

“I don’t think my style is tomboy. I think of myself more like the masculine woman of Armani when it started, or a Ralph Lauren woman. A comfortable elegance that works for both daytime and evening.”

quote of the day from Lulu Editor mimma viglezio

“What the schools should also tell you is that it doesn’t matter if you don’t start with a name. There is too much ‘hunting’ of fame. People want to have their name out there, be in the press, and become rich. You know, it’s about learning. The best school in life would be for you to finish your course and get a paid job; I’m against long-term interning. People should be paid – even 20 grand a year – and work. Work next to these people you admire.”
Lula editor Mimma Viglezio, 1 Granary Magazine
