At the CFDA nominations last night, we rounded up some of our faves to discuss the holiday that made half of NYC late for work today: St. Paddy's Day! Yaaaaay! Right? 

 

How are you going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

 

Jason Wu: I actually didn't remember that it was, but I suppose I'll be wearing green! 

 

Sophie Theallet: I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I'm sorry! 

 

Andrew Buckler: I'll try to put something green on and I'll definitely have a few beers. 

 

Michael Bastian: We are in the office picking out all of our fabric and finalizing all  all of our designs for our big comeback for Spring 12 , so I am getting nowhere near 5th Avenue. I used to work at Bergdorfs which is right in the middle of all that, so I learned the hard way: Don't mess with St. Patrick's Day! 

 

Danielle Snyder: I'll definitely be sporting green. It's one of those holidays where you just go with it.

 

Bibhu Mohapatra: Having drinks with friends somewhere south of 11th Street. 

 

What's your favorite kind of beer? 

 

Jason Wu: Bud Light.

 

Andrew Buckler: I like English beer. I'm a lager boy so I'll track down some Harp. 

 

Sophie Theallet: Corona with lime.

 

Alexander Wang: I don't drink beer. 

 

Michael Basitan: I'm a Budweiser guy. Don't mess with Bud!

 

Waris Ahluwalia: I don't drink, so I guess the kind of beer that gets everyone else drunk fast. 

 

Bibhu Mohapatra: I love a Stella on draft or a Heineken or a Bud. Any sort of ale! 

 

Jodie Snyder of Dannijo: I like Stella.

 

Danielle Snyder of Dannijo:  This is random, but I really like Blue Moon with an orange. 

 

Billy Farrell: Guinness! 

 

Joseph Altuzarra: I hate beer, I can't drink beer, I don't drink alcohol.
