I love intricate interiors. I used to walk through the Ritz Carlton below Central Park in New York and pretend I was a guest, winding through the tea rooms and MCM boutique in heels. There is a set of restaurants in the basement of the hotel where you can get sushi decorated with real flowers.

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti held their SS13 fashion show in a ballroom of the hotel, and I found out about it and snuck in. This was actually one of the easiest shows I've snuck into. I talked to a videographer at the door and he offered to introduce me to Alberta Ferretti, but I was too shy at the time. When I was working at Albright Fashion Library, I was surrounded by her gowns constantly; it was there that my love for her designs really developed. Ball gowns aren't the most practical, but if I had a special event to go to (or to dress) I would totally choose Alberta Ferretti.
