This is a great question! I am so happy you ask me this. I have not posetd anything for a year and this was the perfect question to get back in the swing of things.. My goal is to blog at least once a week. I was so appreciative for the question that I rented the movie since it has been a while since I have seen it.This movie is not just about working in the fashion industry but working at a publishing company. I had the privilege once of going to the Harper’s Bazar Headquarters. The building is so beautiful. It has a waterfall the length of the wall in the lobby. The offices have glass windows from the floor to the ceiling and feel like they are slanted. I didn’t get too close to them since I am afraid of heights and started to feel like I was going to fall out. The office I went to was far nicer than the one in the movie.I worked directly with the assistant to editor in chief of the magazine. She was very nice and a pleasure to work with. I was impressed how she kept calm during her multi-tasking. It was I think the first time working with a client I was sometimes put on hold as many as 3 times in a short conversation because she had to attend to details for the editor in chief. I really didn’t mind as it just stood out as something new and was certainly in keeping with the movie.As for the role of editor in chief, played by Meryl Streep, who was difficult and unapproachable, this was not my experience. I briefly met the editor in chief of Harper’s Bazar and she was pleasant and very hand on. She was not at all like Meryl Streep, sitting behind a desk barking orders. I did observe that the employees in general were on their toes, as I am sure these are very sought after positions. I understand the movie was based on events at Vogue magazine but my personal experience was with Harper’s Bazar. Something else that really stood out about a publishing company that was very different that a clothing manufacturer that I typically work with: The people were very articulate and corporate. If I had the opportunity to work with them again I would love to. I also really admire the accomplishments of the editor in chief of Harper’s Bazar. She is a real role model for women unlike the character played by Myrell Streep. I am waiting for a movie to be made about the garment district-manufacturing firms. It would have everything – fashion, drama, betrayal, sex, organized crime, humor, and did I mention drama. “The Devil Wears Prada”, would pale in comparison.Thanks for the best question so far. Please keep the questions coming guys. Some ideas for questions – ones that require more than a simple yes or no, educational, drama filled, stupid clueless, humor, and as over the top as you want it to be as long as it somehow ties into the business of fashion. I want you learn something and get a good laugh too. Ready, set, go.
