Listen, we love food ALMOST as much as we love fashion, so when we were asked to attend the Alice + Olivia/Magnum Ice Cream luncheon, it was a no-brainer. Two words: Ice. Cream. We dined in the sumptuous (a word we never use so it totally must be true) Loft & Garden on Fifth Avenue to celebrate the exciting news that A + O founder Stacey Bendet was teaming up with the gourmet brand to create a miniskirt inspired by the new Magnum Mini ice cream bars. Awwww! How cute is that? If you're not already familiar, Magnum is the exquisitist (that's totally a word) dessert brand to grace the fashion world as of late—Karl Lagerfeld directed one of their campaigns starring Rachel Bilson just last year. Sweet! Stacey will debut the skirt during New York Fashion Week this fall with the rest of her Spring 2013 presentation, but we wanted to know more! Luckily, we got the chance to catch up with the oh-so-cute designer and get all the deets.
