I left the presentation with a new appreciation for fall/winter maxi-dresses and an overwhelming urge to put on some harem pants and start wearing veils. And turn back to force the models to eat the granola bar I had in my handbag.
Later that evening my partner-in-crime and in biz, Ashley, and I headed to a PETA party that was taking place at the Stella McCartney shop in the Meatpacking District. And so did...
He hosted the evening and presented a documentary that he recently narrated for PETA on how fur is obtained, called "Fashion Victims." It was horrifying. Way to be a buzzkill, Tim. Not even the open bar could bring me back to life after that. But seriously, it's very (veryVeryVERY) eye opening, very graphic, and will definitely change your mind about wearing even vintage fur. You can view it here, but please, consider yourselves warned.
Oh and did I mention Timmy G is the Nicest? Because he is. Meeting and chatting with him was definitely one of the highlights of our trip, hands down.
Make it work, people! Carry on.
