Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or Dinner?
This one is a tough choice, but since we are going all out for my imaginary last meal, I am going to go with an incredibly decadent dinner with my most indulgent friends.
Where will you be dining?
We will be eating in an old haunted New Orleans courtyard at a very long table lined with old candlesticks spilled over with wax and tons of magnolias.
What music are you listening to?
We will start with old New Orleans jazz and then build to fun rock like T-Rex and Bowie. Perfect for everyone to dance on the table to after desert when everyone is good and sauced. Dancing is required.
What are you wearing?
Something frothy and over the top from Giambatista Valli with some sort of whimsical shoe from either Yves Saint Laurent or Lanvin. In my fantasy, I am much fancier that I am in real life … ha ha!
What are you going to eat?
To start we will have goat cheese salad with arugula and roasted beats, followed by a seafood tower piled high with lobster, crawfish, and oysters. The main will be petite fillet au poivre with mashed potatoes (my moms to be exact) and brussel sprouts with bacon. For dessert we will each have cotton candy and profiteroles in the shape of swans (I had the later when I was 14 and have craved it since).
All of course served with plenty of wine and finished off with delicious coffee.
Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Whitney graduated from The University of Texas in Austin with a degree in theatre, concentrating in costume design. After a final semester at the Sorbonne, she moved to New York in the fall of 2003.
Whitney began her career at Kate Spade New York, while honing her skills at Parsons and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
At Kate Spade, Whitney’s responsibilities grew from designing cold weather accessories to playing an integral role in the re-launch of apparel. Pozgay also oversaw Kate Spade’s collaboration with the avant garde collective Three Asfour.
In 2007, Whitney became lead women’s wear designer at Steven Alan where she also spearheaded and designed women’s collaborations including Steven Alan for Uniqlo and Urban Outfitters’ brand Lark and Wolff.
She left Steven Alan in 2009 to realize her long time dream of venturing out on her own. She launched WHIT for the fall 2010 season
