DvF, Norma Kamali, and Prabal Prove Authenticy is a Major Key to Success
To get the opportunity to listen to the wise words of Norma Kamali and Diane von Furstenberg in one sitting is pretty spectacular. Throw the young, talented, and eager Prabal Gurung into the mix, and you've got one entertaining evening. Last night I stopped by the NY Times for a very fashionable edition of its TimesTalks series, moderated by style reporter Eric Wilson. Kamali, von Furstenberg, Gurung and Fern Mallis sat on the panel. The main topic of the evening was the Fashion Center Sidewalk Catwalk, that 30-odd row of incredibly inventive mannequins in the Garment Center. Those mannequins will subsequently be auctioned off, with the proceeds going towards art supplies for city kids who might not have them otherwise. Each designer discussed the inspiration behind his or her mannequin--DvF's wanted hers to represent a feline female, Prabal paid homage to Alexander McQueen, Kamali considered technology and communications--but the conversation soon moved on to each designer's thoughts on Twitter, branding, and yes, success.
