Fashion's reputation may be fragile, but its designer duos are strong - Dolce & Gabbana broke up years ago but they still run a brand. Proenza's romantic detatchment did no harm to their clothes. Heatherette's Richie and Traver are polar opposites with a booming business. So why is designer Heidi Middleton, a half of Sass + Bide, missing in action for Fashion Week? No, there hasn't been a fight. In fact, Heidi is home in Australia expecting her second baby. That means co-conspirator Sarah Jane Clarke has to go it alone this season, "but only backstage!" she assured us last night. "Heidi and I designed the whole collection together, as usual. And we miss her!" Aww, we miss her too - but we'll never miss her show!
Other shows you shouldn't miss: Charlotte Ronson and Jenni Kayne - rumor has it that Nicole Richie will be at both!
