Fashion folk have a reputation for being food-phobic, but the fact of the matter is there’s nothing that makes a harried editor happier than arriving at a fashion week presentation and finding a spread. Cookies! Fresh bread! Locally produced Camembert! These were the wonders laid out at Organic’s Fall ’09 presentation on Monday. Designer John Patrick had invited a coalition of upstate farmers to sell their wares bake sale-style at the event, with a serving of food policy on the side. “We’re a Hudson Valley-based nonprofit,” Severine von Tscharner Fleming said of her organization, the Greenhorns, which supports young American farmers while she was hawking cookies and bicycle flags. “No one’s bought any of the flags yet,” she noted, as models clad in Organic’s farmer-inspired Fall collection dallied nearby. “I was kind of hoping we’d come out of this show with a big bicycle-flag fashion trend.” Von Tscharner Fleming may be on to something—what with the cuts in car services this fashion week season, harried editors would be well-advised to invest in a bike.
