No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you – this is the Brad Goreski in the flesh! We had the incredible opportunity to sit down with Mr. Pop of Color himself yesterday at the Brooks Brothers book signing event in Dallas.
Of course, we had to get some Mosey! shots of his outfit and the details first. His hot pink blazer was a show stopper, and he didn’t disappoint, donning his signature bow tie and glasses. Speaking of bow ties, we gave Brad the ultimate “Texas” bow tie – a bolo (see below) to remember us Mosey! girls by. We had a giggle over that.
After the gushing and gift giving, the interview began. I had about 8 minutes left to gab with the style icon that I’ve loved for years. We chatted about what it’s like being an entrepreneur (best advice: delegate, he says), Kate Spade (there’s lots of cute stuff coming out, he promises) and how to get men to be more into fashion. One of my favorite things he said while we talked was that people don’t dress up anymore – that as children we have this fantasy to want to dress up and have fun with clothing. He encourages everyone – men and women – to have fun with clothes and enjoy dressing up. It’s what’s fun about fashion.
I’m so happy to say that as we talked, I found him to be exactly as I hoped – genuine, down to earth, charming, and appreciative of his family and friends. Of course, the interview wouldn’t have been complete without mention of Gary, whom Anna and I both adore, as well. Oh, and that show-stopping performance of Les Mis in their backyard.
Brad signed all of our books (that’s our stack below) with a different personal sentiment, which I found to be very endearing, proving further that he has sincere appreciation for his fans and how far he has come. All in all, it was the perfect evening. One us Mosey! gals will surely never forget.
