Why Fashion Girls Are Going Crazy for Tourist T-Shirts

Normally, you wouldn’t picture an office like Vogue.com’s fighting over a T-shirt. But this wasn’t any T-shirt! This was a souvenir tee straight from Georgia, where I had recently spent six days for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi. I had inadvertently caused a bit of an intradepartmental kerfuffle when I had picked up the white tee (printed with the slogan “Georgia,” scrawled in Mkhedruli script, and stamped with the Georgian flag) for Vogue.com’s Senior Fashion Writer Marjon Carlos (who wore it with her Paul Smith pinstriped trousers and white Acne sandals) and not for my other coworkers, who all, as it turns out, really wanted one.
