‘k’ in klassy: FashionMeetsFinance

So New York has this hilarious story about FashionMeetsFinance, which to me sounds like a regular douche-teria:

A crop of six-figure earners from the likes of JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, and Fidelity are gathering next week, and they want to make you, fashion girl, their arm candy.

Whenever I get around to organizing a douche safari, surely any FMF event would have to be on the agenda.

My favorite bit of the web site? The part where it lists SilverJet as a sponsor. Yes, the same SilverJet that ceased operations this morning. Nice.

Final note: I sent the NYM link to a few pals. One responded thusly:

If you want to be a shallow whore, I say go for it, but for god’s sake do it right. There is NO WAY this event would not be chock full of poseurs and wanna-bes, mainly because it’s PUBLIC! Who ever heard of such a thing? Wouldn’t it have been better to work through the fashion and finance employers, to create an exclusive pre-vetted guest list? Shit, a drug dealer works in finance. High finance, at that! (ha! made a funny! sorry, I’ll go get a rag & clean it up)
