International Herald Tribune Writer Suzy Menkes Shares Her Tips On Crashing a Fashion Show

Suzy Menkes's Tips on Crashing a Fashion Show

One of the greatest discoveries I made about Suzy Menkes during her Academy of Art University Q&A was that she has quite the sense of humor. Aside from making a joke about Twitter, she reminisced about the olden days — before she was well-known — when she would crash fashion shows. Below are her tips on getting into a fashion show, whether not invited or if you only have standing. Disclaimer: it always worked for Menkes but AAU's executive director of fashion Gladys Perint Palmer claimed it never worked for her. Good luck.

  1. Buy colored crayons, pens, silver and gold stars. Basically, whatever you need to replicate the tickets of those with seats.
  2. Lurk among invite-holders to memorize their invitations.
  3. Rush to the restroom, white out "standing room" and write in/draw whatever you saw on the tickets of those with invites.

that's funny - but i'm glad that it worked for her. for someone like me who's just a fashion hound - i'm sure that i'd get kicked out.
