It’s that time of year to weigh in on what is in style at the moment. In my line of work, I get to know what all of the fashion insiders are swooning over. Fashion insiders are those who stay up-to-the-minute with new collections, the latest trends, special events and exclusive content. They know exactly what is going on in the world of fashion and they are never skip a beat when it comes to dissevering new designers and brands. After all, many of the worlds most famous editors are true fashion insiders. That’s what separates normal editors from the ultra fabulous editors. Ultra fabulous editors love the art of discovery within the fashion world.
I recently met a dear friend for dinner. She happens to be one of the top fashion editors and I love hearing her opinions on fashion and what is in style. Not only is her editing great, but she has amazing personal taste and style as well. She dresses so well and I know many try to copy her clothing and looks. Good taste is not always easy to come by, but she makes it look so effortless. We met at Fat Radish. I know it’s uber trendy, but I actually love the food at this restaurant. The ingredients are so fresh and colorful. The cocktails are perfectly mixed and I love the wine list. Any chance I get, I try to eat here. The fashion crowd likes it as well, so I knew my editor friend would not be disappointed. After we were seated and cocktails ordered, we launched right into what was hot at the moment. She knows how much I love leather goods and accessories so I told her to spill the beans about that topic first.
She was happy to tell me about a new handbag label she’d discovered. Just last week she’d flown to Paris to meet the designers behind the line and to visit their design studio and showroom. At the showroom, she interviewed the duo behind PLIA Designs. As she kept talking she told me PLIA Designs makes some of the most beautiful designer handbags she’d every laid eyes on. I knew it must be a special brand for her to gush like this. She isn’t one to talk on and on as she’s seen nearly everything pertaining to fashion. She said they were the most sought after handbags in the world and that after her article came out, they would be completely sold out. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of PLIA Designs’ designer bags.
