FF: I have never seen ELLE do anything like this before. Are [mall presentations] new?
Anthony: Yes it is new. This is our first time and we are testing it with this. It is a raw tour. First Lady Gaga and now ELLE!
FF: Haha! That’s great, so, how many will there be?
Anthony: We are doing four malls and multiple shows at each.
FF: I noticed Chanel wasn’t mentioned at all during the show. Would you say that their designs are becoming repeated, and not adapting to the latest trends? Or even go as far as to say they are in a rut?
Anthony: No, they change their designs slightly, and make tiny changes. It is subtle. They are different in that they don’t go over board. But in doing that, it may come off unnoticed. I love Karl Lagerfeld [head designer of Chanel]!
FF: Well Thank you so much, this has been great!
Anthony: No problem!
