What started your love for everything fashion?
I think that I realized I was obsessed with clothes after realizing that the only thing I paid attention to in the television show “The Magic School Bus” were all of the different outfits Ms. Frizzle would wear. Or the first time I saw Breakfast at Tiffany’s and fell in love with Givenchy- it’s a close tie.
What was the most mind-blowing moment you had while interning with Michael Kors this summer?
Every single day had those kind of moments, but watching him judge Project Runway at night and then going into the office the next morning to work in the same room as “the” Michael Kors? Insane.
Finish this sentence: The trend I’m most anxious to sport this winter is…
Bell bottoms! And faux fur. Faux fur is everything.
