Fashion Week is more than just glitz and glamour—it’s a time when the fashion world opens its doors to enthusiasts and anyone with a passion for style. This week is no exception, with exciting events in the heart of New York City that are accessible to the public.
One of the most highly anticipated events is the book signing with legendary editor Carine Roitfeld at Marc Jacobs’ BOOKMARC on Bleecker Street. On Wednesday, September 6, 2023, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, this event promises a glimpse into the world of a true fashion icon.
WHO IS CARINE ROITFELD?
Carine Roitfeld’s name is synonymous with the pinnacle of fashion. Born in Paris, she began her career as a model before stepping into the world of fashion journalism. Her journey is a testament to her passion and dedication, which have propelled her to the pinnacle of the industry.
Carine’s career includes significant milestones, such as serving as the editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris for a decade from 2001-2011. Her work at the helm of the iconic fashion publication showcased her fearless approach to style and her unique ability to push boundaries. Her collaborations with renowned photographers and designers cemented her status as a tastemaker.
But Carine’s influence doesn’t stop there. She currently holds the prestigious position of Editor-in-Chief for CR Fashion Book and CR Mens Book. These titles have become synonymous with avant-garde fashion, pushing the boundaries of creativity and challenging the norms of the industry. CR Fashion Book, in particular, has garnered acclaim for its unique blend of high fashion, art and culture.
FANTASIES: CARINE ROITFELD FASHION BOOK
The event at Bookmarc is particularly exciting because it revolves around Carine Roitfeld’s latest creation, “Fantasies: Carine Roitfeld Fashion Book.” This Rizzoli publication is a glimpse into Roitfeld’s creative mind and her significant contributions to the world of fashion.
This book isn’t just a collection of glossy pages; it’s a visual and intellectual journey. Roitfeld’s work has always pushed the envelope, challenging norms and redefining what is fashionable. This book is an extension of her creative spirit, offering readers a glimpse into the fantasies that have shaped her career.
The event offers attendees a chance to connect with the author herself and gain insight into the making of this captivating tome. It’s an opportunity to explore the pages that undoubtedly hold stories, photographs and designs that have influenced the fashion landscape.
To add a layer of context, it’s worth understanding what BOOKMARC is all about. In 2010, at a time when bookstores seemed to be vanishing from the global landscape, Marc Jacobs had a vision. He opened the first BOOKMARC store on Bleecker Street in New York’s West Village. Fast forward a few years and BOOKMARC has expanded to Paris, London, and Tokyo, offering a curated selection of photography, fine art, fiction, music, pop culture and rare titles.
As Fashion Week events unfold, it’s clear that this isn’t just an exclusive affair for insiders. It’s a celebration of fashion’s power to inspire, transform, and unite people from all walks of life. Whether you’re an aspiring fashion editor, a model, a designer, or simply someone who appreciates style, there’s a place for you in the world of fashion.
The book signing with Carine Roitfeld at Bookmarc is a rare opportunity to connect with a fashion icon, gain insight into her world and celebrate the power of fashion as a medium of artistic expression.
