  • Fashion Week’s Autumn/Winter 2012 drama seems to be making some headway! After the “Fashion Gods” in Milan threatened to show at the same time as both New York and London, New York have now offered to pull their September 2012 dates back a week to accommodate the new Italian schedule.

    From there, Italy was said to have agreed to change their schedule to suit New York Fashion Week beginning on the second Thursday in September, going forward.

    For the apparent ‘final’ decision, the statement below has been released:

    Confirm the previous schedule for September 2012 with New York fashion week starting on Thursday 6 of September, followed by London, Milan and Paris Agree for the next two years ( September 2013 and September 2014) with the proposal of Diane Von Furstenberg, President of Council of Fashion Designers of America, to start New York Fashion Week on the second Thursday of September, that is to say on September 12th in 2013 and on September 11th in 2014.

    2.a New York’s last day should be on September 18th in 2013 and on September 17th in 2014 in order to allow London an additional day for the presentation of the menswear collections.

    2.b. Paris will accept this structure and follow Milan as always, starting on Wednesday 2nd of October in 2013 and on Wednesday 1st in 2014

    In case those conditions didn’t happen, the above mentioned solution could not be applied.

    Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana is looking forward to receiving a feedback(sic) from New York, London and Paris.

  • Today, AdWeek have released some very interesting statistics on shoplifting, ie. 1 in every 11 shoppers shoplift. (Really?!)

    Not only that, but 75% of shoplifters are said to be employed adults, and cost the U.S. $119 million dollars per year. Items that are often confused for a five-finger discount include alcohol, sneakers/trainers, women’s perfume, and – at the top of the list – filet mignon.

    This has to be a joke.

    Fashion's Night Out: The Show - Runway
    From beginning to end, Fashion’s Night Out: The Show was an overwhelmingly amazing spectacle to experience, but when you have supers including Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Coco Rocha walking, that is clearly to be expected.

    While many were waiting for the show to start on the runway, it really began on the city’s streets, as the models drove up on a Fashion’s Night Out branded bus! With a wave, the supers exited the bus, dressed in this year’s t-shirts and opened the show, accessorizing long skirts with the iconic Fashion’s Night Out t-shirts. What was quite possibly the fastest and largest scale show ever seemed like a total blur. Between 171 looks and over 150 models, the largest public runway show in NYC history was completed in about 10 minutes. Girls took to the circular runway, showing off a variety of different trends after the ‘Opening Act’: Fifties Flair, Tartan Twist, Pure At Heart, Weekend Wrap Up, Rock Chic, Go Global, and Jazz Age Cool.

    For their second turn around the catwalk, models including Jourdan Dunn, Angela Lindvall, Chanel Iman, and Lily Donaldson came out dressed in long gowns, strutting to a live performance from Pharrell. After Naomi appeared in a gold Oscar de la Renta sparkly number (the same which Cameron Diaz wore recently), the show was over, and she lead girls back into the bus for a dance party style send off.

    “The best part was seeing the faces who are not part of fashion, the people who’ve never been to a fashion show before. It was insane because we never see that. We were almost like rock stars on the runway. Especially when they saw girls like Gisele and Naomi.”
    Coco Rocha

    Afterward, in a rare moment, Gisele sat down to chat with André Leon Talley in her ball-gown.

    “I had a blast and I think it’s so great all the girls came together to support something like this,” she said. “I’ve been a model for 15 years and I was so nervous! This was the longest runway I’ve ever done!”
