Private Tour

Last Friday I was grateful enough to get a private tour of Barney's NY with my fashion club at school, I really had no idea what to expect because I've never even set foot in Barney's! Our tour guide (Taylor) was a very educated on Barney's gay man that had worked there since 1994. He knew all the in's and out's and told so many stories.

Did you know....
+ Goyard bags started the vinyl monogram, not Louis Vuitton.
+ Alexander Wang worked for the fashion director of Barney's
+ Frederic Malle is a genius? (more about that later)
+ Kid's True Religion jeans are $150 (ew)
+ Barney's discovered not only Seven Jeans, but also Giorgio Armani!
+ Barney's has a very well known selection of jeans, and the employees should be able to look at you and tell you what size, style and brand of jean would look the best on you
+ Barney's started as a men's wear store in Brooklyn that was known for discounted items
