I'm Over It: The Economy
Nov 24, 2008 - by Fashion Indie
I'm totally over this economy. Honestly it's very taxing on me. Not only as a journalist who is required to write about the latest in fashion (not easy to do when the only news is bad news) but also as a business man who is in the process of creating a fashion empire that will rival Vogue. Now thinking that the current financial situation might make such mainstays tumble freaks me the fuck out and makes me wish for a better outcome than what's undoubtingly going to happen.
To say we're going to be affected is an understatement. This is going to rock the fashion world. Even the most posh designers and editors are going to shit their pants when this is all said and done. Fashion week will be the first showing of how effected the industry will be. You'll have designers who just won't show up to the party and some that will cut costs by showcasing videos or staging presentations with manaquins and then all these models will have reason not to eat, lack of income.
I'm one for oppulence. I live to talk about out of reason fashions and $15,000 Louis Vuitton luggage sets. I can't take another second of this economy another minute in which my old designer friend calls me up to call it quits. I hope this passes quickly cause once you've donated your life to parties featuring rock stars and coked out trust funders it's hard to turn back. So basically start spending cash again quick and be sure to buy local, I have a couple of buddies who have to fund their thread groupies drug addictions.
