There are so many things connected to the weeks of fashion that you cannot describe if you weren’t there to witness them. From the power of music chosen to make a show (which can go from transcendental to something incredibly outdated), up to the strange familiarity you feel towards the people (always the same!) with whom you meet for 3 weeks in a row.
In an attempt to try to show you the anti-glamour glow of these weeks, I found a list containing seven of the most frequent questions you can hear during fashion week presentations, in bars, or in shops – followed, obviously, by the most suitable answers. It is enough to read the just once, and it would be like you already experienced ten parties of the kind at once. Enjoy!
- Q: Where are you staying?
A: The Maurice, the Ritz, the Park Hyatt, the Renaissance
- Q: When did you land?
A: Last Sunday. Great flight, thanks to my assistant, Xanax.
- Q: When are you leaving?
A: Monday, thank God. I must have put on 10 pounds already.

A: Genius. He knows where all the Starbucks are.
- Q: What have you liked?
A: YSL, Givenchy, McQueen, Lanvin, Galliano.
- Q: Did you get Balenciaga?
A: Yes, barely. Ended up sitting in the accesory editor’s lap.
