Rachel Roy on Ghana, Africa

Friday, November 6th, 2009

“50 Best Travel Destinations” I asked great friends to share their favorite travel spots around the globe, both close to home and far, far off the beaten path. Herein are their responses.

RRoy Ghana


NAME:
Rachel Roy
OCCUPATION: Fashion Designer, Rachel Roy
TRAVEL DESTINATION: Ghana, Africa
HOTEL: The White Sands Beach Resort – a haven for shell collectors like me!
RESTAURANT: I bought local food from the street vendors that was delicious and unlike anything I’ve ever eaten.
BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT: Over the holidays in December – I work with a fantastic charity called OrphanAid Africa (www.oafrica.org) and I brought the children presents for Christmas.
RECOMMENDATION: The street vendors sell beautiful, black vintage-looking sewing machines that you cannot find anywhere else. I bought one for my showroom in New York and am pleasantly reminded of my travels to Ghana everyday.

Hello My Name Is: Vanity Fair

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Vanity Fair has a new blog column called Hello My Name Is by Rebecca Guinness to “talk to those people whose names you always see bolded in society columns but whom you know nothing about.” They’ve profiled a lot of my friends, as well as style icons (and some clients!), like Peter Som, Nadine Johnson, Hanuk, Zani Gugelmann, Lucy Sykes, Ashley Wick, Rachel Roy and many others. Recently they did one on me! It’s fun reading these and learning new interesting tidbits about friends.
