The inventor of New York Fashion Week, Fern Mallis, will interview the inventor of, well, a lot of really beautiful clothes, Valentino Garavani, at 92Y this fall.
Coinciding with the release of Valentino: At the Emperor's Table, the power-chat will take place November 18th at 8pm, though the two plan to meet for an espresso (of course) beforehand: "I will ask my proverbial question," Mallis told WWD, "which is: 'Is anything off-limits?' and if so, I won't go there."
Some topics that won't be off-limits: what Valentino's been up to in the six years since he retired, the state of haute couture, and the curious rise of celebrity designers.
Tickets start at $35, and are on sale here. And, if you can't wait six weeks, Mallis will also be interviewing fashion journalist Teri Agins on October 9th.
