Fashion Tea with Kristopher: March 2019

Spring has finally arrived!! The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and the fashion tea is flowing. Between Paris Fashion Week wrapping up, Karl Lagerfeld’s final collection for Chanel, and the opening of Hudson Yards in New York, it’s been quite an exciting time for fashion this past month.

Ginger Tea

Vogue has lost its online culture editor, Alessandra Codinha, to Departures, where she has been appointed Departures’ style director. Departures is ramping up its fashion footprint ever since being acquired by Meredith Corporation. Departures already has those travel ad dollars, so they are primed and set to beef their fashion coverage.

Musical tea

A music company with ties to the classical music world has their eyes now set on the fashion industry. Their press events, which were once a playground for classical musicians, has turned into another Manhattan fashionista and socialite scene. Fashion Reverie is taking bets on when they are going to take out an ad in Town & Country to get those high spenders to lay out the ducats.

Lemon tea

A former top magazine editor finds herself at home with a respectable financial compensation and a new role in broadcast journalism. Expect her to lend her fashionable touch to many a morning network TV show.

Sizzling, hot tea

Fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli might be going down in this college admissions scandal involving him and his wife, actress Lori Loughlin. He and Lori Loughlin allegedly bribed a college admissions counselor to help them get their daughter into University of Southern California. (By the way, Giannulli is also a staunch Republican.)

Giannulli gave $2700 to Marco Rubio’s senate campaign and $5000 to the Romney victory fund in 2012. Between this scandal and his conservative political leaning, the fashion industry may not welcome Giannulli welcome back or sing his praises, even if he gets off.
