LSD: I love that for you. Tokyo for food and things for the house, like beautiful ceramics, porcelain, carved wood. Paris for designer vintage fashion and things for the table. Maybe Japan for the country and Paris for the city. Vices. LSD: Hardcover books. Favorite thing about each other. LSD: His love and respect for American women. He truly knows us and values us and dresses us for the life that we have worked so hard to achieve. BM: So many things. She has such discerning taste, looks great in clothes — and really, really loves clothes. In a sea of people that oftentimes have a hard time being real, she is one of the most real people that I've met. In the fashion world, she's one who will always answer and always tell you the truth. Advice to your younger self. BM: Just relax. I have always been a busybody and a worrier. LSD: When I started working at Vogue, Vera Wang said to me, "Life is a marathon and not a sprint." To take my time, really learn about the industry and take the time to understand it. I learned to pace myself. I launched my business when I was 35 years old. And even that feels a bit early, in a way. I think now, especially, there's so much pressure on young women. They feel that they need to do everything before they're 25 and that by 28, their life is over. I was actually slow- walking so many things, trying to wait until I was really, really ready. What's next for Moda. LSD: We'll be launching beauty in our own curated and unique way with a very special point of view. A fter the luncheon of chilled zucchini and herb soup, avocado tartare, and grapefruit pavlova, guests retreated to the Mr. and Mrs. Perry suite for more champagne and private shopping with a fleet of helpful Modettes, with proceeds from the afternoon benefiting the Texas Cultural Trust X Brandon Maxwell X The University of Texas Textiles and Apparel Scholarship, a merit- and need-based award for students pursuing higher education in fashion, with the goal of diversifying the fashion industry. The Interview Pre-luncheon, PaperCity spent 30 compelling minutes in the Commodore Perry Library with Lauren Santo Domingo and Brandon Maxwell, chatting about everything from personal collections to vices. On Brandon's Longview, Texas, roots. BM: When I started working with Lauren and Moda, she really leaned into the fact that I was from Texas. She said, "That's what makes you special." I grew up with my mom, who would come down the stairs when she would go to an event, and the hair was big, and the jewelry was big, and everything was fun, you know? There's never a part of me that doesn't think about being from Texas. There's never a part of me that has run from that. On a possible home collection. BM: I've always been into setting the table — very into setting the table. I'm deeply into florals. I worked for eight days to get the Easter table ready, because I want everyone to know that I care. I'm excited about eventually having the opportunity to do that in other avenues as well. Home would be my favorite. And, Lauren sets the most beautiful table! Personal collections. BM: Handbags and china. Lauren Santo Domingo: So many things. A lot of tabletop: porcelain and little things like salt and pepper dishes. I have a couple of patterns of china: a rare 18th-century Wedgwood and cabbage ware by Chelsea House. I'm always starting something. If I find one thing, it's always my goal to eventually find six of them. Favorite city to shop in. BM: Nantucket. Wicker and rattan for the table.
