Didn't we learn in junior high school that inviting yourself to exclusive parties is just a little weird? I have personally never felt right simply inviting myself anywhere. However, PR has a whole binder dedicated to the Badgley Mischka fashion show for people who request invitations for themselves and other people. Sometimes their lists are 20 people long! Not only do they request an invitation for themselves, they request invitations for photographers and backstage access. Oh, and to make it better, they tell you where they want to be seated. RELAX people. The big man, Mr. Cole, and PR decide where you sit, and you should be grateful enough that you get to walk into that tent. Let's face it, if you have to ask for an invite, you're really not that big of a deal.
The highlight of my day yesterday was lunch with the PR group and new intern! We were treated to a delicious lunch and discussed the schedule and priorities that we have up until Fashion Week. SO EXCITING! What other eighteen year old girl gets to work in Fashion Week her first summer out of high school? None.
