i guess dries held out as long as he could joining the fragrance market. luckily this is a collaborative effort(in essence probably more a concept endeavour) with one of the best parfum chemists in the world in frederic malle....guaranteed authenticity.

Definitely. Not ashamed to admit, I will be investigating and likely purchasing it. Thanks for the info!

A nice mention - the only problem with it is the assumption that everyone writing here is a) a girl and b) a teenager. I don't think that's right at all.

i dunno if he really meant it quite as generally as that. i think he just meant how the nature of reviewing and opinions has become so accessible these days.

but that's really wonderful. a lot of designers look at the spot i have to tell you (),so it's no surprise that even one as established as dries would too.

thanks for posting the interview...

yeah- i think that is a general reference to fashion bloggers, who are overwhelmingly teenage girls ...
in addition to reading the fashion spot...
just talking about all the different stuff available on the internet these days and how it's so different than it used to be...

no one should really be surprised that people look at the fashion spot anymore...imo
it's been around for years and everyone is online now, so people clearly look at it...
whether they respect it or care about it is another thing...
but the forums definitely are just another thing on the internet now, and not such a weird or unusual thing anymore...
:p

i was most interested in his talking about how they didn't do advertising because they didn't have money and they didn't move to Paris because they didn't have money...etc etc...
just about how it was in the beginning...
i thought he was very open and honest about some very practical early business decisions...
which i think a lot of people have interpreted differently and romanticized over the years...

yeah people perceive that advertising is so easy peasy but i've heard from so many that it costs more to generate than what it ultimately makes.....especially if you're an independent business like dries,admirably,has remained.
