Thomas Vanden Bogaerde – Freelance Copywriter
Hand picked on 5th Avenue by New York Magazine to flaunt my preppy fashion style, I was unaware of the ticket I just arranged myself for the circus called fashion.
‘It was New York Fashion Week and after the street style interview they spoiled me with an invite to see Tracey Reese’s fashion show that same afternoon. Really? Me? Then after the show, some guy invited me to a party in the Bryant Park hotel the next day, where I met Benjamin-Émile Le Hay, fashion journalist and New York City socialite. We shared the same heartbeat for fashion and we soon became front row partners on Fashion Weeks all over the world. At that point I started my blog, The Fashionistic Lover.’
Now 9 years later, I’m still blogging my days away, but mostly for other blogs (see Links), and I turned my blog into a more personal space. The Fashionistic Lover is death, but Thomas is alive and kicking. 😉
