To get the dirt on what really goes on behind the scenes, we talked to two designers and a fashion PR maven who know exactly what goes into making a collection and all the drama that happens behind the scenes. You won't believe what we found out...
We'll be keeping our eye out on how this all translates to the racks in the months to come. But for now, we can all shop our own closet racks to play dress up, or dress down, with the shirts we already have.
I've been thinking a lot about how many months in advance we start working (six) and how many people are involved behind the scenes (too many to count) to produce a one hour presentation of the collection to editors and buyers.
Every season I threaten to retire from the Fashion industry. Twenty one years later I am still in it, and see no immediate exit to this fulfilling career of mine. As I see it, working in the Fashion industry is like being married.
It is no secret that over the past 10 years or so, the bebe brand has lost some of its original luster and cache. But based on the Spring/Summer 2013, all the naysayers may have to rip up their pre-planned obituaries for the future of this iconic brand.
When I tell you that the Charlotte Ronson Spring/Summer 2013 collection was "completely wearable," it's because I'd like nothing more than to fill my closet with the chic, edgy and unique designs that could take me from the office to out on the town.
