Self help seems to be in season this spring. Fashion insider’s are dishing on the do’s and don’ts that are necessary to make it in the industry and how to mind your manners.
You’ve probably seen her shredding the wanna-be fashionistas to pretty little pieces on MTVs The City and The Hills, but for public relations maven Kelly Cutrone its not all tough love.. In her debut book, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: and Other Things You’re Mother Never Told You, Cutrone spills the pearls of wisdom that she’s gathered in her 20 plus years in fashion PR. In her signature no nonsense style, Cutrone encourages young women entering the industry to be fearless, intuitive and, of course, feminine.
Derek Blasberg, Editor at Large (V, Style.com and Harper’s Bazaar) and fashion boy about town, is doing his part to preserve the woman.
