Yesterday it was announced that those Fashion Meets Finance events are starting up again because apparently the recession is over – a truly interesting limb to step out on for anyone who’s actually paying attention to the world.
I didn’t want to write much about it because, frankly, I’ve always found the events to be rather gross, and kind of tacky. Sure there are many a couple I know where the man works in finance and the woman works in fashion. But, let’s just let that happen organically, okay. The whole thing just creeps me out. But I digress.
Over at our sister site Dealbreaker, we learned that even the RSVP list is looking a little shady. They got a tip from a fashion publicist reader that someone was falsely using her picture to RSVP. The story’s still unfolding, as now the finance guys are weighing in that many on the list don’t work where they say they do or are grossly overestimating their roles and salaries.
So if you were actually thinking of going, which I would really hope you wouldn’t do for oh-so many reasons, maybe the fact that there are likely to be a bunch of lying scammers roaming around will stop you.
That is all.
