Blasblog: New York Was Back to Business; What of the Rest of the Cities?
William Rast and Marc Jacobs put on such timely shows this season that more than one editor was confronted with a closed door on arrival. At Oscar de la Renta, several chairs were vacant when the show began, due to its relatively timely 15-minute-late start. In fact, I didn’t go to a single show that was more than half an hour late this season. Now that we’re not living in a flush economy, are we treating fashion shows more like meetings and less like, well, social hour? I’m interested to see how this trend will play out in London, a city plagued in the past with a spread-out schedule and big delays. Perhaps the more industry-oriented Milan will feel the heat; but what about Paris? I guess, pun intended, only time will tell.
