Hint Fashion Magazine -- Chic Happens, Aug. 12, 1998, 12 Aug 1998 [cached]
Bonnie Pressman last week shocked many by announcing she's leaving her long-time job at Barney's to become the Executive Vice President and Fashion Director for Ralph Lauren.
On a sunny morning last week ..., 7 June 1998 [cached]
On a sunny morning last week , Bonnie Pressman sat in her office on the 10th floor of a gleaming Fifth Avenue tower.The black-matte telephone on her desk looked big enough to route the calls of a small city , and it wouldn't stop beeping and mewling.Two assistants hovered by the door , impatient to escort her to a meeting , while the noise of a jackhammer rose from the street.
But Ms. Pressman , the executive vice president and fashion director of Barneys New York , ignored the phone , asked an assistant to shut the door and stalled the waiting suits in a conference room.
Because Ms. Pressman -- calm as a yogi -- was talking about how India changed her life.
It all started about three years ago , she said , a forelock of blond hair dangling over one eye.She had been diagnosed with breast cancer and decided to visit an ayurvedic spa in Colorado.It was time to make some changes , she said.She learned to meditate , became fascinated with Indian spiritualism and went on to take her first trip to India this year.It restored my sense of peace , she said of her Indian sojourn.If not every year , at least every other year for the rest of my life , I will go to India..Ms. Pressman belongs to the growing number of trendsetters on the East and West Coasts -- high-profile people from the worlds of fashion , entertainment and society -- who have taken passages to India , following to their source the popular interest in yoga , the writings of Deepak Chopra and the blissed-out look in fashion and cosmetics.
Although Ms. Pressman discovered India through a medical emergency , many others seem simply to be carried on the winds of the latest trend.
Ms. Pressman meditates twice a day.She says she is in good health.Her peaches-and-cream complexion puts peaches and cream to shame.She has given up eating meat , smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee.Barneys is planning to introduce rile opulent , Indian-inspired design collection of Colette Dinnigan in the fall , and the photographs of runway models in bolts of bright fabric littered Ms. Pressman's Yugo-size desk.
Ms. Pressman has long-term plans.She paused in the doorway on the way to her postponed meeting and , as the unanswered telephone rang repeatedly , she said : I know where I'm going to retire.I'd like to retire in India..
