You are cordially invited to call, email, and generally piss off the royal Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) as we count down the days to New York Fashion Week starting February 1st, 2008
Logo and Image from the new CFDA website, nice skeleton.
Not from anorexia, but emaciation (that’s two levels PAST anorexia) according to the World Health Organization.
Deceased models from left: Hila, Luisel & Eliana Ramos (yes they are sisters), and Ana.
I’ve had a great time calling over the past year, paying them an undercover visit back in May, and most recently actually getting a hold of a live person on the phone which knocked me off my chair (although she was quite snippy).
Director of Public Relations, Karen Petersen, took the time to speak to me only to quickly rush me off the phone. She was unwilling to provide any update on their year old iniative (my guess is because there is none), and then briskly assured me I would hear back from her PR Manager Danielle Billingkoff.
No word yet and not holding my breath. Not good PR ladies.
I don’t want you to have to google their number, since they conveniently left it off their web site, so here it is:
Phone number 212-302-1821
Oh, and in order to contact the CFDA you have to hunt their web site, it’s buried in the damn site map, nice:
Feel free to ask them to call me back, they have my number. Or, simply ask them questions of your own, like “what the hell have you done in the year since you launched your CYA strategy?”
Here’s me doing some stalking of my own.
