Fashionista has snagged anonymous fashion publicist (and hilarious tweeter) @NoBtotheS to pen a column, giving her (or him) more than 140 characters for griping about working with fashion industry folk. From today's inaugural post on the frustrating habits of editors:
"Half of you look sickly: I get it–we work in an image-based industry. I’m the first person to start a juice fast the moment I don’t fit into a sample, but come on. From the back you look like a school aged boy! This isn’t good! We cater press events for a reason?it’s because we’re worried about your health. So, take a cookie. I promise it won’t kill you."
