For the past eight seasons I have damaged just about every fashion week ticket I have been given. This pains me greatly as some of them are so beautiful they deserved more respect than what I have shown them. All too often they were thrown into the bottom of a massive bag as soon as I found my seat, only to be rediscovered at the end of a long day. They would be pulled out with creases, tears, pen marks and, in some cases, covered in coffee stains (don’t ask). Last year I had the most unfortunate experience in finding that my red lipstick had developed legs and chosen to colour in my beautiful stark white Burberry invite. Saying I was upset doesn’t exactly cover that situation.
This season that all changes, along with my day to day fashion week organization, thanks to a fabulous folio from Anya Hindmarch Bespoke. For those of you unfamiliar with the Anya Hindmarch Bespoke collection, prepare to have your mind blown. This has been the best gift giving portal for me. I get lost in designing wallets, bags and bookmarks for the loves in my life. It’s truly addictive.
Back to business… I thought I’d jump ahead of the game and answer the question I’m sure to be asked at fashion week… where I got this beautiful red folio. Well, now you know it’s Anya Hindmarch Bespoke. And no trying to walk off with my foilio with my schedule and invitations included. It has my name written all over it. I don’t think there are many of you out there that are 6’2 in flats that could pull being me off, if you know what I mean. The funny this is that this actually happened last season.
Apparently there was a girl going around the tents claiming to be Fashion Foie Gras. How do I know this? A PR brought me up to date and also made me chuckle in saying she responded to the FFG offender by saying, “That’s funny as Emily is about six inches taller than you and wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a crop top.” I mean come on, you can’t pay for moments like those! Brilliant!
