A little history...Susanne of course grew up in Europe (how else did she get that wild mixture of accents?) and was a wild child on the club scene in London, Paris, etc. When she moved to New York in the ‘70s, she was shocked at the lack of fabulous, edgy clothing she had access to in Europe, so she opened a shop in the Village selling cutting-edge club fashion to the New York scenesters. Soon, she became the Queen of Manhattan nightlife, opening clubs of her own and hosting notorious parties for the rich, famous, and just plain outrageous. So you can see why I might have my hands full...
Susanne turned out to be a hoot to work with, and we actually chatted so much and so fast at her apartment the first day that the producers had to eventually stop us! As with all people who have a honed-edge vision of what they like and don't like, I learned a lot from my experience with her, as she reminded me to keep my thinking away from "gimmicky." My favorite thing in the episode was a miniature leopard fur hat that we made (if you look carefully, you will see Alex holding it) to give a fabulous finish to her twisted "ring master" look, but in the end it just didn't go with the mohawk she ended up wearing. It will always remain one of my favorite things that I have ever made.
Your show is so inspiring. I love watching you and your charismatic personality and die of envy @ all the lucky people who get to work with you. I also enjoy getting to see the beautiful interiors of your clients as well as the fashions. Thanks for sharing your creative process with us viewers!
Your assistant last night said she didn't like handling the deer antlers because a poor deer had to die for that. She's completely wrong about that. When you went to the store, it said "deer shed" on the sign. Deer shed there antlers every year, they don't die! Which explains why they are called "shed". It's a natural phenomenon. No need to freak out!! Just sayin!
Chris--please (please!) tell Bravo to give your show another season pronto! This is my favorite show--my family and friends love watching you and your buddies make the kind of stuff we can only dream of! Amazing! We heart Chris March!
