Because I'm an irresponsible blogger I can't say much more than that about this evening's event at the Learning Annex. In fact, it didn't hit me until the last 30 seconds that I could/should be approaching the evening as a blog-related outing. Whoops.
Instead I randomly saw the seminar on Ideeli and it sounded like a nice "me" time event. And it was. Even though I haven't wanted to be a fashion designer since I was 5, I found myself scribbling down the names and websites of sources for everything from bag hardware to "factors" (which is like a fashion world verson of an elderly Jewish uncle with cash to loan). I was blown away by her hilarious candor and utter willingness to share all this information freely. She is an encyclopedia of resources, and based on tonight's talk, I think I can safely say that this is not a woman who believes in scarcity. This is a woman who believes that what you give, you'll get back tenfold, and that the more people succeed, the more success there is for all of us. It reminded me of Meg and APW in a way, so warm fuzzies there.
And did I mention she's hilarious, in a very wryly unintentional way? I wish I'd had a tape recorder. But then I would feel guilty about blogging about what seemed like insider info. A reporter I really am not meant to be.
