We asked all you @rebeccaminkoff followers out there what you’d ask Rebecca if you could ask her anything. We got so many great Q’s (thanks, guys), and now, here are the results. RM herself is answering them, one video at a time, in our new series for our Youtube channel, RMTV. It’s called, “Ask Me Anything” and here’s our first episode.

Today’s going to be a fun day—it’s all about beauty.
Right now, all the talented artists I know are getting together with a few of the models I’ve been casting. Together, they’ll be spending most of the day testing out hair, makeup, and nail looks for the big show on Saturday.
It’s another one of those deceptively-easy-looking things. My usual approach to runway beauty has a rock-and-roll vibe—fresh skin, maybe a smudge of eyeliner or a lip, and breezy tousled hair. Even though it looks effortless, nobody wakes up like this. It takes a village to pull it all together.
Even then, it doesn’t work every time. Sometimes I go into it thinking that, say, a cat eye would be killer. But then I see it on the girls, I see the girls in
Still knee-deep in casting models and styling despite all the hardwork yesterday. Models make everything look so effortless, but it’s a whole process matching the right ones to the clothes that best suit their individual personalities and bodies. Sometimes I love a girl and I love a dress, but for whatever reason, the two just don’t go together. So there’s that to work through.
But with Saturday getting closer every day, it’s time to start thinking logistics. And today we’re really focusing on one of the trickiest logistics of all—where to seat all the people coming to the show (and keep them all happy at the same time). So I’m working with my team on this seating chart for #SeeBuyWear. And no matter how many you do of these,
T-minus 4 days ’til the launch of my #SeeBuyWear show, and everyone here at RM HQ is really hitting their stride.
Today, I’m starting the casting process, which means I’m looking at and deciding on which models will walk in Saturday’s show. This is always a fun part, because models bring a whole new life to my pieces. The way a girl wears a piece, her attitude towards it, how it falls on her—all of these little things add a new layer to my work. And with this show being the deal it is, I want to make sure that I get the right group of girls with the right energy, who make you excited to shop and wear these pieces right away.
But that’s not all I’m up to today. I’m still playing the fashion industry’s rules, (which are super
We’ve got six days to go until my first #SeeBuyWear show this Saturday, the 13th, and as to be expected, it’s definitely starting to get crazy at RM headquarters. Of course, it’s this way every week before Fashion Week, but this consumer-facing show is even more of a big deal, and not just for me. It’s a message to the industry.
And there’s plenty of work to be done. I’m currently juggling between two seasons—getting the Spring clothes ready to show all of you and getting my Fall collection in line for the industry. It’s pretty much like I’m playing by the rules while breaking them.
So I skipped Super Bowl fun and spent my day yesterday merchandising and tweaking the details of my Fall line. And today’s is devoted to getting
