Bravotv.com: What do you like about Fashion Week?

Ugh god, I HATE fashion week.

Well if you had to pick one thing you like about it, what would it be?

There's a really great buzz and excitement that runs throughout New York City, especially during Fashion Week, and that's always fun. Ugh, I'm so lame.

So what don't you like about Fashion Week?

That coincidentally we always have 17 jobs going on during Fashion Week. We're really busy.

Do you like New York?

I love New York very much. I just was not happy with the situation I was dealing with when I was in New York. But I love New York; I'm coming tomorrow for Fashion Week.

So about the "situation," you were pulling clothes for Jen Garner's InStyle shoot, and ultimately found out the work was a waste of time. What happened?

There was just a miscommunication between Rachel and myself about the particulars of that job. So I didn't need to do all that work, because the shoot was more about beauty than clothes.

Do you and Rachel often have miscommunications?

Uh well, Rachel and I work on our communication every day.

How do you usually prep for a shoot?

Basically I get the breakdown of what the job is, the concept of the job, and then depending on the nature of the job, like if it's a photo shoot, if it's an ad campaign, if there's a budget, I'll go to the stores, I'll do store pulls, I'll call samples in from New York and Europe, I'll do showroom appointments and so on.
