Was Whitney Port Inspired by Alison Brod?
We just received the invitation to the Whitney Eve Spring 2011 presentation and immediately had to wonder if Whitney Port was inspired by her publicist, Alison Brod. Brod's Park Avenue office is a Pucci lover's paradise. Her walls are covered in framed Pucci scarves and her pillows are upholstered in the brand's iconic prints. Now it seems her client has taken heed with her invite designs. After Brod's debut on The City, we knew Port's brand was on an upward trajectory, but it seems the PR maven's influence has extended beyond securing press. And we can understand why. After we visited Brod's offices for the first time five years ago we jetted to Mood and purchased yards of Pucci discards to cover our canvases with. Whether the colorful geometric pattern will play a role in her designs remains to be seen. Port will show her collection on September 11th and we'll be sure to ask her then.
