Now you can read intimate, never-before-seen interviews with the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein, Diane von Furstenberg and Bill Cunningham in a new book from former CFDA Executive Director, Fern Mallis.

Fashion Lives: Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis had an exclusive book signing event at Sag Harbor’s Urban Zen on Friday, July 10, where the lady herself was available to talk about some of the renowned New York fashion personalities she has interviewed over her career. Barneys’ Simon Doonan was one of the V.I.P. guests in attendance, giving the book a stylish stamp of approval.

Mallis’s book provides a unique insight into the fashion world, offering an insight into the wonderful minds and private lives of the city’s favorite fashion faces.

The book signing was part of a series of meet the author events taking place at Urban Zen throughout the summer.

Fashion Lives: Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis is available to buy now.
