Fashion May End In The Glamour Zone, But Its Beginnings Sure Are Humble

shirtsSo in my attempt to keep out of debtor's prison, but not work a conventional 9-5, my retail friend, (aren't they just super good for tid-bits on knowledge on so many subjects?), hooked me up as a sample sale worker at the Steve Alan Show Room in downtown Manhattan.

Yesterday was start-up, day one and consisted of arranging accessories, purses, belts, shoes and what not....folding, oh the folding...of sweaters, building clothing racks, and carrying massive amounts of boxes back and forth from show room to retail store and then breaking them down.

Fashion may end in the glamour zone, but its beginnings sure are humble.
