Carine Roitfeld Asks Fashion “Where’s the Fun?”

April 11, 2011 • Fashion


Not all fun and games at Vogue? Say it ain't so!

Ex-Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld gave an interview to Spiegel in which she explained how the fun fashion job became less playful and more about the serious end of business.

"For 10 years, it was a hell of a lot of fun. But, toward the end, it unfortunately got less and less fun," Roitfeld explained. "You used to be able to be more playful, but now it's all about money, results and big business. The prêt-à-porter shows have become terribly serious. The atmosphere isn't as electric as it once was, and they now have about as much charm as a medical conference. But it takes just one good fashion show to get things exciting again."

Very true, Carine. Oh so very, very true…
