Why I Hate the “Fashion Set”

February 7, 2013 by annie

Thanks to a couple of unfortunate internships, I learned to hate most ┬ápeople in the fashion industry. And thanks to this comic strip, I am reminded why. My father is not a Russian oligarch, my mother was not a model in the 60s, and I am not 90 lbs, therefore, I do not belong in this world of “fashion”. And damn it, that’s fine by me.
