What's the theme?
“British Raj. A mixture of Victorian and Indian. We were in India when we decided to start Marchesa. We get our embroidery there. ”
Why a presentation instead of a runway show?
“For our clothes, loud music and girls walking just didn't seem to suit it. I think it's a more peaceful environment, like an evening cocktail party. ”
Are you learning about fashion?
“Wear your shirts out. I was the quintessential tuck in your shirt, put on a tie, and look stupid. That's ended. ”
You touch the clothes?
“You're not supposed to, but I do. I'm bad. I didn't eat pizza beforehand. Well, I did eat pizza, but I washed my hands. ”
Do you prefer presentations to runway shows?
“I don't know if we're supposed to make eye contact. Some girls have broken and smiled, and others just stare straight through you. ”
Get any good swag yet?
“Marc Jacobs gave me a leather handbag. I'm obsessed with it. ”
