[INSIDE STORY] Mitford the Giraffe on his Wild Ride to the Top
Mitford the giraffe arrived in New York with a singular ambition: work at the legendary Cover Magazine. During the dry season he says, he’d immerse himself in its glossy world, feeling it fed him more than the leaves in the acacia trees. Few knew how he’d survive in the urban jungle. He could barely fit into an elevator, let alone in with the likes of Zap Possum and Shark Jakobs. Yet, Mitford has proven everyone wrong. In his new, much anticipated autobiography, Mitford at the Fashion Zoo, he details the wild STORY of his ascent up the fashion food chain. Here he talks deep dark secrets and NYFW velvet ropes.
