Day 7: Street style, big waves, and me as inspiration
After lunch, we manage to sneak into J. Mendel (we aren’t on the list, but by this point security is starting to slack) to talk to Orlando Pita for T3 about the big waves he is creating. He describes the look, and then turns to me and says, “It’s kind of like your hair — wavy but undone. You’re the inspiration!”
A hair genius uttering those words — even if he is kidding — basically makes my Fashion Week. (That, and my $1.99 mani. Seven days later and it’s still shiny and completely chip-free.) At this moment, all the running around in 20-degree weather, tripping over nail artists doing pedicures, and waiting forever to get a one-minute interview seems worth it. If Orlando Pita likes my hair, clearly I’ve learned something during Fashion Week.
