How fashion meets finance… and why.
January 15, 2009
There’s a ‘Fashion Meets Finance‘ mixer in New York planned for January 22 where the ‘women’ of the fashion industry are intended to mix with the ‘men’ of the banking industry (who apparently still make more than guys in advertising).
The invitation to Wall Street starts like this: “Life may be tough, and your industry might be crumbling, but what you need to realize is that the implications of this crisis for the rest of New York society are even more intense. You Bankers are the core of our ecosystem, the top of the food chain. And when there are less lions hunting, the natural balance is destroyed and next thing you know advertising guys are picking up tens at 1Oak buying drinks from the bar. Pathetic. Without you, there’s chaos, and hot women don’t know where to turn. In the next year there will be too many hot girls that were supposed to marry bankers making the life-long decision to settle with consultants, accountants, and lawyers? Its unnatural and unfair.”
Check out the ‘who’s coming‘ section where participants state their salaries and post photos. Of ethnographic interest, anyone…?
