On Thursday September 3rd Macys along with the creators of Philly Fashion Week, honored New York Legend and fashion’s fairy god mother Fern Mallis. Known as the creator of New York Fashion Week, Mallis received the Fashion Icon Award.
With a career and resume that spans over the past 20 years, dotted with names like Tom Ford, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar De La Renta, she is most notably one of the most powerful women in fashion.
Her new book Fashion Lives, is a massive collection of amazing interviews, stories, secrets and (never seen before) photographs of fashion’s royalty. Names include Donna Karen, Tommy Hilfiger, Vera Wang, Micheal Kors, and Andre Leon Tally to name a few. If your not gushing you should be. Its everything you don’t see and hear about their careers and their personal lives…
I asked for their teenage under the bed shoe box, says Mallis. Its juicy, honest and ballsy.
Its better than TMZ, E!, and Access Hollywood. As we said in the 90’s its all that in a bag of chips.
With a purchase of $30 or more attendees received a copy of this new classic (available on amazon here) and a photo with Mallis herself.
Check out my photo with Fern Mallis and other photos from the night!
