FASHIONWEEK Fall 2007: Robert Verdi Drops by for an Interview with Fashiontribes at the New York Shows. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG & VIDEOBLOG
We talked to Robert Verdi right after the Diane von Furstenberg show in New York, and he shared with us what he looks for in a show: creative expression, wearability, and which celebs might look good in what. "I look at a collection with three minds," explains Verdi. "First, I look at the creative expression. Sometimes that doesn't mean that it's wearable or that you're going to see it on people, or it's going to be on the racks in your mall. Secondly, I look with a consumer's eyes; I worked in retail for many years, so I like seeing clothes that real women can wear, because when I worked on commission, that's how I paid my rent - so I like seeing clothes that I know will sell, and that women will look well in, and enjoy wearing. I also work with celebrities, so I look for things that might be really fantastic on my celebrity clients."
And his favorite thing about New York Fashionweek? To quote Fran Lebowitz: "That it's not Fashion Month."
