Drew, Sina, Matt and I trudged the 15 blocks from the DOWNTOWN show to ICFF at the Javitz Center. Javitz is MASSIVE! Right off the bat I got to meet Lotta Jansdotter, Anglea Adams and Madeline Rogers and Paula Buzzard (Mibo), all designers I have admired for a long time. I was completely in awe and tongue-tied. Paula thought I was a fictitious character, as she claimed she emailed me from a newsletter and I never wrote back. This made me mad at Drew, because I never got the email.
If you ever email me and do not hear back, itâ€™s all his fault.
By the way, we will no longer be carrying Angela Adams products, as she assaulted Design Public co-founder Drew in her booth in the middle of everything. He was humiliated. Just kidding, he was asking for it. Seriously, she was a good sport to pose for an action shot! She also has a very cool laid back DJ kind of voice – check out our interview with her.
OK, way too many people out there now have â€œarchitect glasses,â€ yours truly included. I decided that the backlash from this will be that everyone will soon be wearing eyewear modeled after the horrid lenses in Napolean Dynamite.
