It was a good day

Thanks for all the love today, people! So many of you turned up that my server crashed pretty much every ten minutes or so, and is still hiccuping its way into the night. But we’re on it! (by which I mean my tech chick is on it. I’m just trying to stay out of her hair before she fires me for being such a pain).

Meanwhile: a lot of you have asked about the picture I’m standing next to in this photo: it’s by Japanese photographer Naoya Hatakeyama, who also took the one you see before you, from a 2001 series called Slow Glass. Don’t you kind of wish you lived in it?

    I saw the article about you and your terrific new blog yesterday in the NYT. I too, at age 50, just recently started my new NYC blog (I put the website in the required box). As someone who has also been in the fashion industry for close to 30 years, and “starting over”, I felt like we were ” kindred sisters”. I wish you well on your endeavor, and if you feel like checking my site out, please do.

    Hi Ms. France,

    What can I contribute? I co-write an anti-war blog … and, very occasionally, written on the intersection of war with fashion.

    I am an artist and writer of a certain age. So happy to find you and read the wonderful article. I had a good run in Hollywood (and a short stint at Hachette Filipacchi). I created the Free Katie shirt in 2005 as a way to really break up with Hollywood. Little did I know what it would launch. My various designs have also been mentioned in Vanity Fair, People, NYTimes and I’ve done lots of radio promotions. I am now a country mouse in the foothills of Northern California. I am married to a punk rock drummer of a certain age and have two little girls. I write about parenting as an artist and staying authentic to being both. I also like calling BS on various media and marketing. To say I relate is an understatement! I’m linking to an article the paper wrote about me a few months ago. I hope you don’t mind I’m putting it all out there but I was very excited to find your blog and your voice. Let me know if you would like to collaborate on anything!

    Also let me know if you would like to see a real resume that includes things like “Director of Integrated Media, Producer, etc…”

    I read you in Sassy (RIP) way back in the day and just found this blog. Thrilled.

    You are a breath of fresh air!I loved you at Lucky!
    Finally, a voice for what feels like “the forgotten girl”!
    Congratulations and hope you have a chance to check out our site as well, we can organize all those years of being a clothes horse!
    Just in case WWD photographs the closet next time!;)
