It wouldn’t be summer in NYC without the US Open, which allows us
Nanette Lepore NYCA New York Minute with Nanette Lepore
September 11, 2014
Nanette Lepore isn't from New York, but the FIT graduate has called the city home for quite some time (and has sampled her fair share of coffee).
When she isn't designing, collaborating, or showing her collections on the runways (as she did this Sunday during New York Fashion Week), Nanette is exploring NYC and vacationing with her daughter (sounds good to us!).
Read on for our exclusive interview with the fashion designer whose clothes are adored by famous faces like Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift, Blake Lively and Arianna Huffington.
Galavante: What is your favorite part of the city?
Nanette Lepore: Right now, I’m loving the Lower East Side - strolling around on Sundays, checking out the new restaurants and boutiques.
Galavante: New Yorkers are obsessed with their coffee. What is your go-to for a cup?
Nanette Lepore: Intelligentsia is my go-to!
Galavante: What was the last NYC museum you visited and what exhibit did you see/enjoy?
Nanette Lepore: The Alibis: Sigmar Polke 1963–2010 exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art was great!
Galavante: What are your post-New York Fashion Week plans?
Nanette Lepore: I usually try to slip away for a weekend with my daughter, Violet. We love to go to Miami together.
Galavante: What is one fashion or accessories trend you've seen abroad that you wish would come to NYC?
Nanette Lepore: I’d love to see more of the one statement earring that I was seeing a lot of in Paris.
Galavante: Well, when the trend hits here, we'll remember we heard it from you first. Thanks for spending a New York Minute with us at Galavante.
