When the legendary Paper Magazine editor-in-chief Kim Hastreiter first introduced me to The Citizens Band creative director Sarah Sophie Flicker in 2008—just before Sarah Sophie took to the stage for an awe-inspiring performance at The Box in New York City—I reckon my fellow dinnermates were unaware of the massive feat of willpower I wielded so as to withhold my inner fangirl and string together a semi-coherent sentence (no doubt, of adulation) in a desperate attempt to avoid embarrassing my editors. It was not until a year later, upon shooting the Fall 2009 Rachel Antonoff lookbook alongside Sarah Sophie and Alia Shawkat, when I finally had a proper opportunity to unfetter my admiration for Sarah Sophie’s artistry and advocacy. Through various fashion and Occupy events thereafter, we have since bonded over our aligned politics and mutual love for Chris Matthews and all things fantastical; it has genuinely been an honor to strike a friendship with Sarah Sophie, one of my heroines and role models.
