Well this is supposed to be the first post that starts our blog section and I am already starting it on a negative note. We (my business manager and I) sent out an individual e-mail to every designer showing at fashion week. While most of the response has been positive. A couple of days ago we received our first no. Maybe we’re too small to accomodate an inch of SRO space in the back. Maybe I met Vera somewhere and said the wrong thing. Maybe the PR person doesn’t like papierdoll. But then again, who wouldn’t love us?
So anyway. The text of her response e-mail is below:
“Thank you for your interest in attending the Spring 2006 Vera Wang show on Thursday, September 15th. Unfortunately, due to the limited amount of space we will be unable to accommodate you this season.
Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
Vera Wang PR Person”
My response was very simple and positive. I figure who knows, they may have an opening across the street in the binocular section for online fashion sites just starting out.
My cheery response:
Thanks Vera Wang Pr Person [from hell]!
Hopefully we’ll make it next year.
Was just kidding about the from hell part. Seriously. I was.
