A fashion week in the campus

Istanbul Fashion Week happened to be at the campus I work in. Santralistanbul’s large parking lot was turned into a tent town and fashion people showed around in the campus, frequenting our cafes and all. There was a Meg Ryan scandal. She showed up for a moment and then was frustrated with the crowd and she escaped basically. I don’t know who is really guilty there but we could not figure out why so much money spent for a person who is not really in the fashion business and not a hot shot any more. Or is she? I don’t know really.

It was the registration week, that meant one of the busiest periods in our academic year and I had only two ways connecting with this giant organizations. Instead of our usual parking lot, we had to park farther away, which was annoying with all rain and cold air. We swore a lot. There was a low profile clash of logics between university personnel and security people for the fashion organization. Secondly, well, it was beautiful to see around fashionable women. A friend of mine who happens to be in fashion circles sent me an invitation to one of the lingerie shows, but i wasn’t interested in that really.
