With New York Fashion Week less than one week away we thought we’d start checking in with some of our front row favorites (and designers and street style photogs and other general fashion folk) to find out what they’re most looking forward to. To start us off in the most enthusiastic fashion is Barneys’ Creative Ambassador at Large, Simon Doonan.
I’m looking forward to seeing: Fashion week is a great time to catch up with people. I love to chat with Suzy Menkes and Sara Rutson and Valerie Steele. While waiting for shows to start there is always time to exchange both deeply superficial and deeply profound thoughts with old pals.
I’m so excited to wear: I bought a new Engineered Garments jacket which is perfectly butch and fluffy all at the same time, like moi.
I think this will be the most played song on the runways: I am bracing myself for a huge Donna Summer retrospective. It’s a disco moment.
The party I won’t miss is: There is always something groovy going on at Barneys during fashion week. This is my party central.
I will eat this everyday: A huge lesbian bowl of oatmeal every morning always hits the spot.
I keep my invites inside my: My monogrammed Goyard messenger or my monogrammed Patti Hansen Hung on U bag.
You’ll know I’m exhausted when: I start jabberring in Sanskrit.
And his post fashion week plans?
When I’m in Paris I can’t miss: A trip to Azzedine Alaia’s incredibly beautiful store in the Marias. So chic!
