It was a day of firsts. I mean, not only did I go to a real runway show, I sat in the same room as Anna Wintour. Not that she noticed but still.
I was seated in the second row and the models weren't on an elevated walkway. I was right there and it was nothing like what I expected. It was loud and energetic and by the time I was five minutes into it I was really caught up in the whole scene. I still couldn't begin to describe what I saw, but the mere fact that I was there means something. In fact, Franki Durbin from Life in Venti Cup was getting quite the vicarious thrill from my being at that show today. She sent me this message on Twitter this afternoon after I sent her a couple of photos: frankidurbin @saintpetepaul OMG. Are you FRONT ROW at Jason Wu???????? You've got connections, my friend!
I don't have the heart to tell her that I met and spoke with Jason Wu at the after party.
If you're interested in reading about Jason's show this afternoon, Booth Moore from the LA Times posted this right after the show.
I met a ton of great people today. Fashion people, marketing people, PR people, advertising people, media people and beyond. It was fantastic. I'll be writing about yesterday and today for weeks and I owe it all to a really dynamic faucet company, Brizo. Thank you.
