Have you given up on the West Coast?

Tyler:  Yes! I have.  I live here now, but I’m in Paris all the time.  I’m here for good. I am certain.

As a little girl, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Tyler: A ballerina. Or a nurse…

When did you figure out that you wanted to work in fashion?

Tyler: I studied film and television in college and then I read a biography on my father.  I was suddenly inspired. I felt really connected to him, so I decided to move to New York. I worked for Michael Kors for a little while and then I wanted to start my own thing. I’ve always loved handbags.

Do you wear any of your father’s old pieces?

Tyler: I do!  I have a bunch of sweaters. I went over to FIT and studied all of his old fashion shows. One of my favorite items is black and white sweater with large polka dots.

You must have had the closet growing up. Anything embarrassing in there that you regret?

Tyler: Yes, palazzo pants!

Which shows have you loved so far this fashion week?

Tyler: I was in Europe finishing up the bags until a couple of days ago, but saw the Marc Jacobs show. It was really great. I had a fever, so I watched the show and ran back home. I missed the after party. I was so sad!

If you played a pick-up game of basketball, who in the fashion industry would you want on your team?

Yigual Azrouel: John Galliano. Someone fun, like Jean Paul Gaultier. And Marc Jacobs. That would be funny. Oh, and Karl Lagerfeld! Imagine him playing basketball.

Anjelica Houston: Michael Kors. He'd be captain of the team. I'd have the little Zac Posen. I'd have Donna Karan because she's a great team spirit girl.

Hilary Alexander: Who's tall? Karlie Kloss because she's sporty and six feet tall. And Anna Wintour because she plays tennis and she's really competitive. 

Mary Alice Stephenson: L'Wren Scott because she's the only girl in fashion taller than I am. It would be pussy power galore to have an all female team. 

Angie Harmon: Andre Leon Tally for height. Michael Kors for the uniforms. And Louboutin for shoes.

Loving Life! With Suzy Menkes

How are you this morning?
When was the last time you were in South America? 
I just flew in from São Paulo two days ago. 
What was your favorite part? Did you party?
The best part of Brazil is the guys! They are all good-looking, and they are all smiling. Everyone is smiling. New York could learn a thing or two about that.
What was your favorite thing to eat in Brazil?
I don’t know the names of all these things. 
How do you keep your energy up during fashion week? Do you go on the treadmill?
Every time there is a great show, I feel a great surge of energy; every time there is a bad show, I collapse. There is nothing you can do about that. There should be more good shows.
Were you named after anyone? 
I wish I could say Suzie Wong, but I don’t think that would be truthful.

Emmanuelle Alt:
 That’s a crazy question. Seven? Something like that. 

Suzy Menkes: I try for six hours. 

Christina Hendricks: My dream amount would be nine or 10 hours a night. When I’m working, five or six.

Brad Goreski: Last night? Many! I’m pacing myself this year. I don’t want to go home with the fashion flu.

Stephen Gan: I need a lot of sleep—minimum eight hours. 

Bill Cunningham: A normal amount.

Woolrich’s Paula Gerbase: Depends on the season. Between two and eight.

Cindi Leive: Waaaay too few. I can’t answer that. I’m off the wagon.

Leighton Meester: As many as I can, but unfortunately not more than seven. But that’s enough! 

Stacey Bendet: Usually I get six or seven, but this week has been a little crazy.

Fern Mallis: Not enough! I’m guilty of—at 1 in the morning—of watching what I’ve recorded all week and before I know it, it’s 3 or 3:30, and I yell at myself and go to sleep.

Mark Indelicato: Four or five hours tops. Sometimes it’s two or three. In L.A. when I have nothing to do, it’s normally eight or nine.
