fashion week flashback at the anna sui showroom. sigh.

Comments

as a reprieve from the week, barneys and tumblr invited a select group of us bloggers to enjoy tasty eats and drinks at fred’s on the department store’s uppermost level.

sitting next to simon doonan and enjoying his company for 3+ courses was likely the most memorable fashion-related experience i’ve had yet. while we had met briefly in the past (he remembered! i guess he doesn’t regularly run into many 4’10” jewish goddesses), the evening featured real conversation — he was such a wealth of knowledge and sincerity. doonan joked about promoting his new book, but i truly look forward to reading it as i have his other writings. barneys’ fashion director tomoko oguro was also on-hand; i regret not taking more time to pull her aside and grill her with questions about her life/experience/opinions considering we are only two years apart in age. does her personal style influence buying choices? whose style does she admire? whose does she loathe? does she own any sweatpants? #important

i cannot thank tumblr enough for giving me opportunities such as this one over the past handful of years — i don’t know what i did to deserve it, but i am grateful; i don’t know what my life would be like now without having started this blog on this platform.

if you have really good eyesight, look closely at the names on the place settings: i sat next to simon doonan at dinner last night. basically, we were on a date.

less than a day after her show, rebecca minkoff took some time out of her busy schedule to hang with us plebeians (and by plebeians, i mean a select group of lucky tumblrs) for an intimate breakfast on the rooftop of nylo, a soon-to-open boutique hotel in the upper east. minkoff was especially psyched to chat about her collaboration with tumblr and nordstrom in a “you choose the winner” tee-and-tote contest, which gave tumblr users the ability to pick a design and model to rock it — it was even worn on the runway! the tee and tote are now available for purchase at nordstrom and online.

all of the buzz regarding tumblr’s designer-blogger pairings led up to this: the reveal of the fruits of our labor at milk studios this past thursday. my photo of anna sui’s signature dolly heads was a haunting — if i do say so myself — contrast against the other behind-the-scenes images. and obv i had to pose with my bff jaimen.

two articles make it official: i am among twenty tumblr users that have been paired up with some of the fashion industry’s coolest brands to partake in a brief pre-fashion week apprenticeship. what does that mean? in my case, i got a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on at anna sui hq. did you know that everything is made in-house?

stay tuned as i reveal what i saw in the week leading up to her runway show.

note: sony, an official sponsor of “tumblr fashion week,” provided all participants with a dslr camera and xperia tablet z. (holy crap, i don’t know how i deserved that.)
