WATCH: Tavi Gevinson On Fashion Week, And The Safety Of Her Bedroom
At the risk of sounding ungrateful, fashion week is hard on everyone. So it’s nice to hear that someone as “celebrated” — which is to say: someone with a front-row invite — finds it just as high school-ish and uncomfortable as we do.
“It’s why I wrote that blog post about sitting next to Anna Wintour and how, just, bizarre it was. And looking around at all these people who looked so miserable. I feel bad for the designer, too. You work on this thing for half a year and you put it out there and you hope people like it. That’s why something like a Rodarte show is so special because people let their guard down and let themselves enjoy it.
…I’m not going to go to a show like that where everyone is acting all snobby and pretend that it’s glamorous. It’s kind of pathetic. It’s so high school.
…You know, I’m really glad that I come home from fashion week to this room to just, you know, keep dreaming about things.
Lesson of the day: keep on dreaming.
