MADDMAN: The Steve Madden Story
On Tuesday, October 24th, I had the pleasure of attending a private screening of THE fashion powerhouse Steve Madden's new documentary! I had such a great time at the private screening, I had to share! The documentary tells the story of Steve Madden's life in a very raw and personal way. I loved it! He literally went from selling shoes out of the trunk of his car to becoming the mogul of a billion-dollar empire. Talk about inspiration! Steve (first name basis, we're besties now) is also funny as hell with his witty commentary. He touches on so many personal and trying moments, from his battle with drugs, to the tea with Jordan Belfort (the infamous Wolf of Wall Street) and his experiences in prison. Not sure if my opinion matters but (hopefully it does since you're reading this lol!)... MUST SEE! After the event screening guests mingled for a quick reception with some cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. During the reception I was fortunate enough to steal Steve away for a quick chat. Like I said....totally besties now.
It was almost surreal for me to grow up lusting after his shoes (that I couldn't afford) to being personally invited to see how he made it all happen. The documentary is set to release early November. You all have to check it out! Check out a few photos from the event below!
