The life of a fashion showroom representative is one of modern day nomad. They’re always on the go, traveling all over the world, entrusted with one of the most important jobs in fashion and to a designer, selling a collection to buyers. Showroom reps make it look so easy, and Lisa Pastrich from Twnz showroom in New York is one that does it with a million dollar smile. She is part of a team responsible for brands like Muubaa, La Mer Collection, Blaque Label and Gypsy Junkies, to name a few. She doesn’t have the luxury of not being on her A-game at all times, therefore the tools needed to maintain her appearance have to fit into a handbag that is small in appearance, but can hold its weight among a tote or two, literally. One afternoon, just before the fashion month chaos we love so much, I asked Lisa if she wouldn’t mind sharing the everyday essentials a traveler like herself never leaves the house without.
I learned several new things that afternoon.
