every now and then i come out of my cube and into the light (by “every now and then” i mean like as rare as a solar eclipse).
anyhow, i went to a theirry mugler event last night – the room @ the bay – with my cousin jerome. jerome’s a big fan of mugler’s creative director nicola formichetti (who also works with lady gaga) and i basically invited myself along.
jerome and nicola formichetti
we spent the evening wandering amongst some very fashionable peeps, like socialite suzanne rogers (she brought marchesa to toronto this year and oscar de la renta last year), suzanne boyd (editor-in-chief zoomer magazine), anita clarke (blogger – i want i got), fashion designer jeffery micheals, and people i recognized from fashion magazines.
despite feeling out of my element Jerome and I had a good time and we met some lovely people.
discovery: i need to get out more. also this was a good example of why it’s important to look your best no matter where you work. you never know what opportunities might pop up where you get to attend a great event, meet some cool people, and network, network, network. if you’re lucky it will be an event that includes free champagne and fancy finger foods. it can happen.
