IFB Tweet Up With Mr. Mickey

AMEX & IFB hosted two tweet-ups during fashion week, and I was lucky enough to go to the one with the amazing Mr. Mickey - Mickey Boardman, founder Paper Magazine! Hopefully you know who he is, as he is one of my Who's Who of Fashion Week. It's always funny to go to tweet ups since everyone has to pause after each question in order to tweet what we just talked about, ahah.Long quiet pause...Here are some of my tweets, it was really interesting! Funny, I was sitting next to him before it started and barely managed to say anything, but once I was "officially" allowed to talk I asked three times as many questions as everyone else, including:

V: "You're known for helping discover/mentor Julia Frakes; What makes someone stand out to you?"
MB: "You can't just have a cute outfit - You need to have a unique voice to stand out today... but a cute outfit doesn't hurt!"
V: "What are some upcoming indie designers we should all know?"
MB: "SUNO was amazing, and I like that they are ethical / eco-friendly. Also Preen, Mandy Coon and threeasfour"
V: "You studied fashion design at Parsons, do you ever plan on creating you own collection?"
MB:"Actually, Opening Ceremony has approached me to do a collaboration of sparkly things, I may be the next Chloƫ Sevigny!"
Jennine was there looking amazing as usual, I am so going to get glasses like hers next because I'm a total copycat! :O
