It's been a few weeks since Wes Gordon's triumphant presentation. What has our rising star been up to? He finally took a wee holiday! Let's hear all about it.


"On February 10th, after much stress and many sleepless nights, I presented my Fall 2011 collection at the St. Regis hotel.  I'm so pleased with how everything went and am beyond grateful to the amazingly talented people that made it all come together. We've had great feedback and are proud to be launching the collection in some amazing stores. But, as anyone in fashion knows, the show/presentation is hardly the end of the tunnel!  Beginning almost immediately after is Market Week. During this time, our showroom becomes a busy (sometimes chaotic) assemblage of buyers choosing the pieces they'd like for their respective stores. My favorite part of market? The studio is OVERFLOWING with cookies, snacks, and macarons!  After Market ends, trunk shows begin.  This means that during a period of about six weeks, I will spend much more time in airports than my own apartment. I love doing them and it’s fantastic to meet our clients- but a guy’s gotta sleep once in a while! 


So, totally worn out and in need of a recharge, a long weekend in Miami seemed like the perfect solution. And it was! I stayed at the amazing new Soho House Miami. Two notable things about this hotel: they literally have the best tuna tartare on earth, and the Cowshed Spa massage is a life saver (I fell asleep during a massage for the first time in my life). I became so relaxed there that even finishing one full Vanity Fair article seemed like too much effort.   


One thing that we did muster up the energy for, however, was a great dinner out every night. One of my all-time favorite London restaurants is Cecconis and, lucky for me, they opened an outpost in the hotel. All of our meals were fantastic: sitting outside at Casa Tua, enjoying crispy beef at Mr. Chow, and Michelle Bernstein’s terrific Senora Martinez, located in the awesome Design District.  I love the way that the area’s streets of beautiful furniture shops are now intermixed with fashion, including Margiela, Louboutin and Marni boutiques, to name a few. After a great few days, I am back in the city, excited for the trunk shows, and ready to start on Spring 2012!"
