11:15 AM: Arrive at Twinkle by Wenlan show. So smart arriving 15 minutes late â€“ these things never start on time.
11:55 Line starts moving alllriiiight!
12 PM: See huge pile of nifty canvas gift bags. PR girls are holding ten of them within my arm’s reach. â€œCan I have a bag?â€
â€œOn the way out.â€
There are like 100 bags piled up so feel ok with this.
12:01 PM: Where are the seats?
12: 02 PM: Whereâ€™s the show?
12:03 PM: Notice 3 models stepping off of Design Within Reachish coffee tables. PR person hands them gift bags
12:05 PM: Say to PR person
â€œWhat happened? Whereâ€™s the Show?â€
â€œThe models had to go â€“ they had another show to go to.â€
12:07 PM: Huh? OK. Follow a group of dumbstruck fashion gals out the door. Others stay inside looking dumbstruck.
12:08 PM: Sorry no more gift bags.
I am a fan of Twinkle by Wenlan. As I flip through a fashion mag I frequently find the clothes I covet are creations by Taipei native and New York based Wenlan Chia. Thatâ€™s why I gave up my Sunday morning (on my wedding anniversary no less) to hustle down to the West Village for her show, butâ€¦.can someone at least send me a gift bag???
Update: apparently there was a show….although I don’t know who saw it! View the the video.
