Live from Richard Chai: Phillip Lim himself bowing to Anna in the front row. No, really!
After living here for a while, you sometimes forget how many amazing people live and work in New York City. When we walked into City Hall for the Fashion's Night Out kick-off press conference today, we went through security with Lisa Mayock from Vena Cava. Then, we saw Anna Wintour walking ahead of us and Alex Wang suddenly appeared behind us. A few minutes later Marc Jacobs, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez walked in. After we were seated inside the press conference room, the following people (in addition to the aforementioned) surrounded the podium: Prabal Gurung, Zac Posen, Phillip Lim, Tracy Reese, Kenneth Cole, Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Tommy Hilfiger, Thakoon Panichgul, Marcus Wainwright from Rag & Bone, Francisco Costa, Vera Wang, Tory Burch, Steven Kolb, Linda Fargo, the Mayor...and after a few moments, we noticed tiny Mary-Kate Olsen peeking her head out behind Marc. Then, unfortunately, we died and are thus unable to report anything else about Fashion's Night Out. Just kidding - sort of.
