Yesterday evening I had the honour of talking to tAz Arnold.
I am dead serious when I say that he will become one of the best high end designers in the world.
I'm such a fan of his work that I got a kind of nervous and the interview started off a bit rocky.
I always find myself dorking out on the people I admire. And although I relax after a couple of minutes, when the interview is over most of the time I'm left with a crush that's a trip.
Dude, I even felt giddy after interviewing the -female- head designer of Agent Provocateur.
Anyway. Taz and I had such a good chat that I felt comfortable enough to make him promise that he would talk to Sarah about stocking his collections at Colette. I think my exact words were : "Now, you have to ask her. Don't wait until she calls you."
In my defence: I have been raised better than I sound.
He was extremely courteous though. We talked about growing up in the eighties, his new albums, the new Ti$a MCM line (I got another scoop!) and Karl Lagerfeld.
And if that wasn't mind blowing enough, before he said goodbye he sweetly added that I made his day.
Mr. Arnold : you made my entire month.
And the next one.
Ah hell, who am I kidding. I'm having the BEST year!
