Even on a rainy Tuesday night, we’re more than willing to make the trek up to 92nd street to take in another installment of the 92Y‘s “Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis” series. So far, we’ve heard Tom Ford tell us about meeting the love of his life, Michael Kors have everyone in stitches over childhood anecdotes, and Diane von Furstenberg spout inspirational aphorisms. Last night it was Vera Wang‘s turn to bring the spotlight onto her own success story.
There really is never a dull moment with Betsey Johnson, even when the designer is talking about such humdrum subjects as paying back one’s loans.
From her mother’s narrow escape at Auschwitz to why she would never date a lawyer, here are a few things you should know about the inimitable Diane von Furstenberg.
“If Michael weren’t a designer, he could probably have his own stand-up show,” joked Fern Mallis last night about guest Michael Kors at the latest installment of the “Fashion Icons” series at the 92Y. And we doubt anyone in the audience would disagree (including Anna Wintour herself).
Did you miss out on Tom Ford‘s fantastic talk with Fern Mallis as part of her 92Y “Fashion Icons” series? Fear not!
“Wow, there’s a lot of you,” Tom Ford said to last night’s 92Y audience. His talk, part of Fern Mallis‘s “Fashion Icons” series, had been sold out for four months. An upstairs room held guests who watched the conversation on a livestream. Everyone wanted to see Tom.
