Ever Wonder What Condé Nast Looks Like Through The Eyes Of A Child?

Just before he passed Steve Florio, the former president and chief executive officer of Condé Nast was working on a book however he never had the chance to complete it and the book went unpublished. His daughter Kelly Florio Kasouf now a mother of two, has since written her version of the years she spent visiting her father’s office in New York and later on working at Vanity Fair and Vogue. This modern-day Eloise-style children’s book, titled “The Super Adventures of Sophie and the City: All in a Day’s Work,”

follows a little girl who sneaks into a publishing company to visit her father and gets whisked away to different worlds (or magazines, such as Vogue, Brides, Vanity Fair and Condé Nast Traveler).

These titles aren’t named, but they are clear. At the beginning of the book, André Leon Talley appears (or at least, his likeness, wearing a Louis Vuitton cloak). In one section, Isaac Mizrahi is sketched as a fashion fairy godmother, in Swarovski crystal wings.

According to WWD, Florio Kasouf has created an app for the book and the tome will be sold exclusively at Barneys.
