Lakmé India Fashion Week-Fern Mallis

Lakmé India Fashion Week has been a wonderful experience and I feel more than lucky to have been able to attend two different Fashion Weeks in less than a month. An absolute highlight for me was meeting IMG Fashion Senior Vice President and the person responsible for making Fashion Week possible, Ms. Fern Mallis. IMG Fashion is the group that organizes Fashion Weeks all over the world and Ms. Mallis is the fashion powerhouse behind it. For someone so influential in such a cut throat industry it's amazing how down to Earth and warm she is. Despite being the most respected and arguably the most important woman in the fashion industry she is so low-key and willing to chat. I have a tremendous amount of admiration for her and meeting her in India at Lakme India Fashion Week after only seeing her from a distance in the Bryant Park tents was a fun twist of fate. I somehow never thought I'd meet her in India at Lakmé Fashion Week (despite IMG organizing the event) in front of the men's bathroom in the show's lobby area. She seemed equally amused by the location we ended up chatting in front of. Thanks to Fern Mallis and IMG for making my month so fashionable, fabulous and memorable!
