The event was at Diane von Furstenberg's gallery which was transformed into a high-tech lounge with the help of HP. The lounge included interactive screens which featured social media feeds and images from the runway.
I really enjoyed the panel as it was great to hear from some of my favorite accessories designers. While the designers all had different sources of inspiration, they all seemed to agree on having compulsive, restlessness desires to create and perfect.
When the designers were asked if they'd ever approached someone wearing one of their pieces, Alexis Bittar also told stories of how people usually assume he's a woman and how he's had to pull out his ID. And perhaps even more hilarious was Philip Crangi's story of how a snooty someone told him the piece was from a "Richard Crangi" and that it was "very expensive."
Philip Crangi made a point about accessories being the most personal element of your look; each piece has a story. So true!
