Everyone thinks that Fashion Week is super busy but it’s really the weeks that lead up to it that are so exciting. I always feel privileged to see a designer’s collection come together. You might have seen someone’s sketches and inspiration months ago, and looked at fabric swatches and then finally the toile.
Oh, to see the final garments – it’s like Christmas for me. To slowly unzip the garement bag or to simply take off the plastic cover. To see an idea become a reality. I love the idea that something wonderful could happen to somebody in that dress – maybe they get engaged, receive an award or fall in love – just something that gives the dress a memory. It’s so exciting to see everything come together – almost more exciting then the actual show. The show for me is the end – the work is done and now it’s up to the sales team and the process beings again!
