If you ever thought that working in fashion was basically the grown up version of high school mean girls, the new anonymous Twitter account, @CondeElevator, just goes ahead and reinforces that belief for you. Between Anna Wintour sightings and backstabbing remarks about mass brands and who doesn’t like who, the main conceit of the Tweets is the rampant lack of eating taking place at 4 Times Square. On a lighter note, there’s also a ton of mutual admiration society complimenting going on go girl power!
An ex-editor in the storied building got in some trouble in June for tweeting about an arrest that took place on the premises, so if that’s any indication,I don’t know how long this thing has a chance of lasting although I hope it’s forever.
Read on for my fave fly-on-the-stylish-elevator-wall tweets to far.
