Part of this job entails covering the fashion twitterverse. This is a thing I generally enjoy. Designers, models, PRs, and fashion personalities are more candid on Twitter and you get a better sense of their personality. They also break news over Twitter–like Coco Rocha posting her own wedding pix yesterday.
But lately this task has started to bother me. Here’s why: It’s August. In Europe, and especially in Italy, everyone goes on vacation. Everyone. For the whole month. When New Yorkers go on vacation they stay glued to their blackberries to respond to work emails. Not Italy. These people know how to go on vacation and not work. I would like to learn how to do this.
