Yes, I dressed up for Silvia Venturini Fendi. That's the same Ms Fendi who's in charge of the Fendi accessories we see in those expensive stores. The same Ms Fendi who works alongside Karl Lagerfeld. My 'dressing up' meant donning a R100 Mr Price dress and Tokyo market-bought handbag. During the interview in the double-F logo store, we sat surrounded by R7 000 handbags with names like Peekaboo, Cinderella and Firenze. I dared not ask her what her thoughts about me were when she mentioned how a handbag says so much about a person. Maybe mine says I like travelling to far places to buy cheap things. Maybe it says I am cheap. It seems photo-taker thought the same thing!
