One of our favorite, and chicest, New Yorkers profiled by GiftMeChic

How did you first imagine “PhoebeNewYork?"

I didn’t, she just came to me from a totally organic place, and from there she grew into the character we know now as PhoebeNewYork.

PhoebeNewYork is based on your alter-ego, does she get to do things Libby wants to do but doesn’t?

Yes! I think Phoebe’s freedom is the reason she was born. Phoebe gets to say, dress and go the places Libby would love to, and that is part of the fun I have in thinking about and making her.

I think art is a language. I don’t allow myself very much in life, but I can express myself in unlimited ways through her. I think I’m able to communicate a huge range of emotions through Phoebe, which has been kind of like creating a new language. Living through her is unending magic.
