4. buyer for Colette, or maybe being The Sartorialist
5. Yes, and I won't make that mistake again!

I love this, it's actually more interesting to read, as the questions are too good!

I shall have to consider them and come back, hopefully I'll remember too.

Amazing picture, by the way.

iheartfashion - what, no toe-less knee socks for you??
i don't know, as the sartorialist, you'd have to go up to strangers and ask if you could take their pictures - i'm not sure how one goes about doing that. (btw did you notice he has advertising on the site now - netaporter flashed on the page when i clicked to leave a comment).

discothequechic - glad you enjoyed - hope you come back.

1. Ack! A tough one, so I basing my answer on the 2nd question. J.Lindeberg.
2. True.
3. The recent fashion graduate that doesn’t live in NY, Paris, or London, etc…, But also the independent designer.
4. The celebrity with the clothing line. Everything basically done for you, you just say yes or no & put your stamp of approval on it.
But I’d also love to be a buyer for my own boutique, ideally a men’s store (at heart I’ll always be a Prêt-à-Porter Prostitute aka Shop Girl)
5. Yes
6. True, it would be interesting.
7. Depends on how deep the offense was…
8. True (kris van assche, oliver theyskens, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Tom Ford)
