Q&A With Fashionista Sarah Mintz

Posted by Carolee on 12/19/2013

Q. Were you on a business trip to Moscow or was it for pleasure? 

Pleasure! I live by the work hard, play hard mantra and this trip definitely fell on the side of play hard. During my time abroad, I went to Germany, Russia, Austria, Belgium and France.  


Q. What was your take on the fashion scene in Moscow? 

Loved it! I am familiar with designers coming out of places like NYC and Paris so the high fashion of Russia took me by surprise and far exceeded expectations. Forget summer stockings, anything goes in Moscow. 


Q. How is it different from New York? 

Winter white from head to toe. Long dresses. Strong and bold geometries. Lots of lace. 


Q. Are there any unusual jewelry trends you noticed there?  

I had the opportunity to meet and get to know the fabulous and eccentric Evgenia Linovich of Maseterpeace Jewelry who was presenting her newest collection at Mercedez Benz Fashion Week in Moscow.  Launched in 2012, Evgenia is now of international fame and this season she is all about headbands. Beaded, gold-toned, fabric printed, enameled, flowered, hand embroidered, you name it - her colorful headbands run the gamut of creativity. Some of them even had "earrings" hanging from the side for a creative take on the traditional stud. Her inspiration behind the headbands were the crowns of the Russian Tsar and tiaras of eastern princesses. So not New York!


Q. Any other fashion comments you can share with us?

Hats, hats, hats. Also, women are NOT afraid to wear heels. Girls after my own heart. 


Q. Finally, we would love to know what you are up to these days.   :-)

When I'm not globe trotting, you can find me in NYC looking for the newest restaurants and hotspots. I also (somehow) find time to work in business development at a global financial services firm.
