It's a month until Fashion Week, and accordingly, designers are starting to let their visions leak. This is when it gets really exciting, and so we were thrilled when a model called into the office and told us this: "I had a fitting for Jill Stuart last week. It was me and one other model. Her collection this season is really structured, really futuristic, and so she took her inspiration pieces - Thierry Mugler, mostly, and some Alaia stuff from the '70s - and had me wear it. Then the other model put on Jill's upcoming sample for the show, and they tweaked it to make sure the fit and silhouette resembled the vintage stuff. I was a little surprised to see how heavily a designer relies on other people's clothes, but the collection should be really cool." We're eager to see it. And for those who don't know, Jill Stuart's vintage archive is said to be one of the most extensive in the industry. She sells tiny bits of it in her Soho shop, but a lot of her old dresses could be in museums.
