Ok at this special snowflake mentality that you are the only person that hates NYFW and can’t wait until Paris or Milan! We get it we’re all aware it’s not on par. Just enjoy it for what it is and give up this faux-elitist persona you’ve taken on because you feel it proves something. It doesn’t stop being messy.
“There is no space to invite students of fashion. When I started, I was a student, and people let me in because I loved fashion. Now there is no space for students. This is very sad, because students bring enthusiasm to the shows, and without them, it’s not so exciting. I always try to use my power [laughs] to bring one or two with me, because they bring a good vibe—they’re not blasé. Fashion shows used to be more crazy. Now they’ve become a bit too serious.”—Carine Roitfeld on the current state of fashion week.
