Socialite and CIRCA creative director Fabiola Beracasa will file regular reports on her Fashion Week experience. The Fab life is taxing, so we’re still catching up with her weekend. Coming soon: Monday.
On Saturday, I was sent two bags full of Rock & Republic jeans (which I love) to wear to the show. I tried on about ten pairs until I finally decided on jean shorts and black tights. I went to the show with two of my close friends from London — Camilla Al-Fayed and Jamie Diner. The show started very late, and it was … well, let’s just say we had fun.
12:30 a.m. We all went to Bungalow 8 where we met up with basically all of New York! We hung out until 4 a.m., and then we all went home to get some much-needed sleep.
On Sunday, I woke up at noon to realize that the DVF show was at four! I hung around the apartment and ordered in, watched Talladega Nights (clearly not my choice — Jason, my boyfriend, had his way with the movie selection).
3:15 p.m. I put on the coolest DVF navy leather dress that the studio had sent over. It was so chic. I threw on some mascara and was off to the tents. It was freeeeezing! The show was wonderful — a really great crowd. I sat next to Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Gillian Hearst, and Elizabeth Saltzman (darling), who was across from me, kept signaling that I should take my sunglasses off when the show had started. Little did she know how late I was out the night before! DVF always manages to make clothes look great on — always reliable and never too trendy. The kind of clothes that you can truly wear time and again.
5:30 p.m. I went home to clean up for the after-party at Indochine, but after resting for a bit, I never made it. I really wanted to go but had a very hard time thinking about the cold and putting on more makeup.
8 p.m. A garment bag from Thakoon arrived for his show on Monday. The outfit was so cute — a darling black-and-white striped long-sleeved top with a red jacket and super-chic black pants! Loved the look.
