Emmy-winning television star, celebrity stylist, author and fashion designer, Carson Kressley hosted the inaugural In-Fashion shopping festival last month and held a media breakfast to chat clothes and more. Garmental gal-on-the-go, Suzanne Kopulos, was there to meet the fashion guru and enjoy his serious sense of humor!
He's one of Oprah's go-to stylist faves, has hosted several stylist shows, designed his first fashion line for ladies, is debuting on Dancing With The Stars and, of yeah, he's one of the funniest guys on the fashion scene! (And I thought I was busy.) Seriously, if Kressley ever falls out of love with fashion, he has a major chance at stand-up or he's just extremely witty and funny when he's been up since 3am at a 10am breakfast!
After an early morning call to open The Magnificent Mile's In-Fashion shopping festival with Erica Strama, Kressley was kind enough to spend the morning with Chicago's media mavens and misters. He shared a little information with us about his upcoming women's clothing line, though he wouldn't divulge where it will debut. He shared his love for expensive shoes and pocket squares, but not for designer priced denim. Kressley suggests gents should get the jeans from brands like Levi's. He loves the construction and even more important, the price! He loathes high priced denim, but wouldn't slap you on the hand for spending major cash on footwear.
