You know I have been a New Yorker for the last 12 years. Being a New Yorker has lots of perks. Museums, 24 hour Diners, Central Park… in short New York has it all. One of the perks this great city offers to its residents is that we have one of the coolest mayors in the world.
Mayor Bloomberg recently added another point to his cool chart by declaring May 28 as the Burberry Day in NYC to celebrate the British brand’s new U.S headquarters.
Bloomberg said ““By placing its new headquarters for the Americas in midtown Manhattan and opening new stores here, Burberry is investing in the future of New York City, a worldwide hub for retail and fashion.”
To celebrate the day, the fifty-foot long sign at the top of its brand new head office (located at 444 Madison Avenue) was lit up for the first time, and yes of course there was also a celebration party.

Lagerfeld is famous for being the biggest workaholic in the industry,so I really cannot imagine that he is leaving Chanel and retiring. But I guess we just have to wait and see.

Everybody knows that wildchild Lindsay Lohan is very much into fashion. Rumor has it, Lohan wants to take her interest in fashion one step further (her leggings line does not count) and wants to be a creative consultant for Emanuel Ungaro. I know, I know it sounds kind of creepy, a Hollywood starlet working for one of the most prestigious fashion houses in the world.
But don’t worry because according to “Page Six”, Ungaro designer Esteban Cortazar is threatening to leave along with his team if Lindsay signs on.
