The Anatomy of a Gift Bag!
The other day a friend of mine, texted me with a rather interesting text message!! What do the gift bags that designers give away during the fashion weeks, have inside?!?!
At most shows, you'll only get a tote bag if you sit in the first or second row. And it also depends on the show you are visiting! Some designers give wearable pieces such as bags or scarves while others fill the bags with everything their sponsors gives them!
The ones that are more privileged -and those that on the other hand spend hours and hours of working- are the people working for the press! Here's the complete list of everything their gift bag consisted of in this year's New York Spring 2010 Fashion Week!
