It was an honor to interview creator of New York Fashion Week and industry innovator, Fern Mallis, about her fascinating book Fashion Lives. The interview took place at my college, the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Mallis’s book features 19 inspiring interviews from her series “Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis” that takes place at New York’s famed 92nd Street Y. The series includes in-depth interviews with American fashion luminaries. Interviewees include everyone from Calvin Klein, Donna Karan to Tom Ford. Read Fashion Lives to get the scoop about who inspired these fashion luminaries and how they became the people they are today. It even includes the “shoebox under the bed,” photos that no one has ever seen before!
