This week you're getting a seriously in-depth and exclusive look behind-the-scenes of my fall presentation in NYC -- the scariest, yet most exciting, thing I've ever done in my life. I was so nervous about showing my collection for the first time, I mean, this has been my baby for the last year! Oh, and on top of planning this show -- I have a photo shoot for Women's Wear Daily -- seriously mah-jor!
So, basically the whole team is in New York for three days, and Day 1 is totally freezing. We are on set of the WWD shoot with two insanely gorgeous models shooting a fashion week spread of my fall collection -- talk about jumping in head first! This is totally crazy since this photo shoot is the first time anyone has seen my collection.
Day 2 is presentation day -- easily the scariest day of my life. I've literally never been so nervous about anything! I'm completely terrified hoping people will come, and if they do, will they like it? Thankfully, there was an incredible turn out -- at the end of the day I was surrounded by my friends, my family, my stellar team, and some of my most esteemed industry colleagues. It was perfect! I am so humbled by the positive response, everyone seemed to love the presentation, Women's Wear Daily gave us a great review and my spread got the cover -- no words!
Amazing work you are doing with Roger at your side..he is your biggest fan..There was a black dress with puffy sleeves you wore last season thats to die for...please do you sell it? I am 5 ft 0 and I so want to wear that dress..you looked phenominal...Listen you have a great life, just remember the love of the people around you and that baby!! I adore you too!
Rachel....I definitely relate to your style with fashion. I have always made clothes work for me...which means making adjustments for wearing it differently then it was meant for. So when you talk about that, I just smile and say, "Yup, thats what you have to do...make it your own." Thanks for being so fun to watch!
Love your show, your energy, your clothes line and you. You live a life that fascinates me because its glamorous and so different from my life as a teacher. Thank you for sharing your exciting world with us.
I can't watch your show. I love Bravo but after 5min I have OD on shallow human being. I do like the artistic nature of fashion and I had a little annoyance bias about you. Your line is impressive. Very impressive. As easy as it is to not like you it is that hard to ignore your line is good. The Jlo trench dress fit her better than anything she has ever worn. You are Uber talented Now get a SUPER nanny for awesome little guy!
Your line is BAHNANAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!! Most of your line has already sold out at NM...ughhhhhhhhh.... When will we get them back????
Rachel, your line is unbelievable. I have been to the stores to see, and pick. I also got a few pieces online. I have to tell you that your hard work has paid off, and it's so luxurious. I feel like you styled them for me! You rock, and now I can too!
Rachel, love your collection and congrats! Is it just me or is Mandana (sp), Taylor's doppelganger? (And that's meant in the kindest way) Seriously, color her hair platinum and bam...hello Taylor! Even the mannerisms...spooky! Maybe you should check to see if it truly is Taylor under that dark hair!!! She's back but disguised!!!
Rachel - I have watched your show since you started, and just wanted to say that seeing your new line tonight was soooo awesome!!! Even though I will probably never be able to wear them (wouldn't do them justice), I did want to say they were all beautiful, sophisticated and extremely RZ!!! Luv'd them!!! Totally gorgeous! Congratulations on all your success with fashion and with family! Good luck in the future with baby, Rodger and RZ Inc! You deserve it, now if only you can learn to stop, take a breath, and enjoy each and every moment!!! Can't wait till next episode! lori in md, p.s. if you and Rodger ( and your team) ever want a place to get away from it all (even for a weekend/week/month, etc.) please come visit us in the little town (only have 1 blinking yellow light (turns red when the firetrucks or ambulance have to go out) and lots of vintage clothing here - come to St. Michaels MD. :)
