Maison Martin Margiela and Alexis Mabille Are Now Officially Haute Couture
Unlike Juicy Couture or Zahia Dehar's 'couture' lingerie line, Maison Martin Margiela and Alexis Mabille can now, in good faith, call their couture lines haute couture.
Fashion Week Scheduling Conflict Finally Over (For Now): New York and London Confirm September Dates
The fashion week scheduling nightmare appears to finally be over, at least for now. September 2012 dates for New York and London have just been confirmed, officially, and both cities have agreed to move their dates earlier. New York Fashion Week will take place September 6-13 and London will follow from 14-18, according to a press release the CFDA and the BFC sent out this morning. WWD reports that Milan's Fashion Shows will take place September 18 through 25 and Paris September 25 through October 2. The news comes following more than three months of back and forth between the four fashion capitals after Milan set their September show dates to conflict directly with New York and London and then couldn't be reasoned with, digging its heels further into the ground as the months wore on. The agreement they seem to have reached is the same one New York and London proposed back in November (which DVF referred to as "biting the bullet"). So then why has it taken this long to confirm?
