LUNCH WITH BRAD: The airdate for Bravo’s new Brad Goreski reality vehicle, “It’s a Brad, Brad World,” has yet to be revealed, but look for the trailer to make its debut in November. “I hope that people will be able to see [in the show] all the hard work that goes into starting your own business in fashion,” Goreski told WWD at an InStyle luncheon on Thursday, where he and managing editor Ariel Foxman discussed the week’s trends for a roomful of advertisers and partners. “You get to see the balance between this high-energy, over-the-top, sort of glamorous type of world and then the flip side — what my real life is like and what my family is like. I’ve been with the same boyfriend for 10 years.”
The show filmed from March to August and follows Goreski as he builds his own styling agency after famously splitting from his former boss, Rachel Zoe, who has her own reality show on Bravo. The two did not speak once during this latest whirlwind of New York shows and parties. “I’ve seen her out and about.…As far as I’ve heard, she’s not speaking to me,” said Goreski, before Foxman quickly turned the conversation to other topics.

Both Zoe and Goreski are contributors to InStyle, with the latter penning a new column in the magazine, “Brad’s Buzz Board,” that made its debut in September. “Our world is a friendly world and there’s room for all of us,” said a diplomatic Foxman.
As for the shows, Goreski singled out looks from Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Peter Som and Tory Burch as among his favorites. Among his many projects, he is also working on an autobiography-cum-advice book, tentatively titled “Born to Be Brad.”
