Remembering Naomi Sims, PYTs To LFW, And More…

-------

Halston muse and pioneering black cover model Naomi Sims died Saturday, at 61. [NYT]

With the exodus of designers to London fashion week this fall, we’re not surprised that rumors are already percolating about who will fill their front rows. On tap for Topshop: Blake Lively, Taylor Momsen, Anne Hathaway, and Kate Bosworth, among others. Let’s hope they put in some face time at Bryant Park, too. [Grazia Daily]

Rest easy, Prada fans. The label’s loan has been extended until 2012, at which point they’ll need to pay back €450 million. Or, a whole lot of hip waders. [WWD]

Speaking of fall fashion, this season is shaping up to be sell-or-sink time for small fashion labels that have survived this far. No need to shop for your favorite young designers till you drop—perhaps just until you get slightly fatigued. [WWD]

    I’m so sorry that I didn’t react earlier, yes RIP Naomi Sims. She was stubborn and that made her so succesfull, rejected by modeling agencies she found a way to become one of the first black models on a cover. She paved the way for Beverly Johnson, Alca Chinn, Pat Cleveland and a lot of others. Nowadays Naomi and also Jourdan and even Chanel Imam can be thankfull to her. Just 61 but she had a beautiful life with a lot of victories in it and her own company.
