30. Fashion Week, New York
Here in New York the Stars are more important than the designers. The camera flashes are all for them.
As it is Milan so it is Paris, the only difference been for Italian and French designers having a Star in the front row at our show can be absurdly expensive, with private plane (depending on importance) hotel and cachet all sky high.
Only the big names like Gucci and Louis Vuitton can afford the big Stars!
In New York it is different. The costs are lower and the Top Models require a cachet that is half of what it is expected in Italy! I’ve never understood why!
The Stars in America are best friends with the designers.They live like neighbors in the same city.
The most seen Star at the NY Fashion week was Jessica Alba.
Matt Damon was at the Mark Jacobs show.
Leighton Meester, Natalie Portman, Ivanka Trump and Adriana Lima were present at many shows.
I met Uma Thurman at the Narciso Rodriguez fashion show, she embraced me with great sympathy and friendship.
I invited her to my show in Milan.
She said that she was busy shooting a fantastic movie, promising that I shall really like it. “I’m sure” I replied reciprocating her sweet embrace!
I’m not a writer so do not feel up to being able to describe every detail.
Sure, I wanted to have my camera with me to catch the simpatiche follie (sympathetic follies) of fashion.
I never understood why so many young designers, especially Americans, dress themselves up so absurdly in an effort to to bring out their personality style!
I find it amusing and sometimes a little degrading for the fashion world to which they belong!
In a few days the great zoos of fashion will moved to Milan.
Two main dates the first Friday 24 JUST CAVALLI and then Monday 27 ROBERTO CAVALLI.
I’ll be a star, I’ll play my part and the fear of not being up to what the fashion world expects of me is great!
Only your warmth and affection give me so much creativity…
I LOVE YOU
