Best of NYFW Spring/Summer 2021, Day 3

Plus, a Love Letter to Anna Sui

I remember being an assistant buyer for the Saks Fifth Ave. corporate office, years ago, working in the garment district of New York. Every day I would walk past the Macy’s Herald Square windows, on W.34th Street. One day I was stopped right in my tracks. Frozen by a jolt of fabulous fashion. I couldn’t tear myself away from a window featuring an Anna Sui mini skirt. The pattern was black with gold coins and chains. I was just an assistant and $76.00 in those days was a lot of money for a little skirt, but I had no options, I had to have it. And I still do. Anna, keep doing what you’re doing. We love you.
