Fashion’s High Fliers Grounded
About those empty seats at Giorgio Armani’s first show today: Milanese traffic wasn’t the culprit, but transportation issues were to blame. A Continental flight filled with New York PR agents and editors—including Vogue‘s Virginia Smith and Filipa Fino, W‘s Alex White, and New York magazine’s Harriet Mays Powell—experienced engine failure and was rerouted to Bangor, Maine, last night. They arrived back at Newark at 1 a.m., but sans luggage. For fashion people, that’s worse than sitting on the runway for four hours without any snacks. Their bags arrived by 5 a.m., but word is, most of them are still trying to find a new flight to Milan. We wish them Godspeed.
