Occupation Fashion designer for Emerson
Residence East Bridgewater
Do you wear your own clothes most of the time?
Yes, definitely. I love what I come up with. I think it’s exciting to wear something that I designed. I’d say 50 percent of the time I wear my own designs.
I know you’re a huge fan of Karl Lagerfeld. Why?
I just think that he is brilliant with how he revived Chanel. I think he’s a marketing genius.
Are you hoping to follow in Lagerfeld’s footsteps?
I would love that. I would love Emerson to be a global brand.
How many Chanel bags do you own?
I probably have 65 or more.
It’s not a problem for you at all, right? You can stop any time you want?
Well, Chanel is right over there [across the street from her studio]. I can see it out my window. — C.M.Interview has been condensed and edited. E-mail comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
