Five Fashion-World Pros On How They Got Where They Got


Amid the confusion and uncertainty prevailing in London at the moment, last night’s party for the launch of The Teen Vogue Handbook here brought a clear, sunny message: As editor in chief Amy Astley put it, “Think big and you can do it.” In a packed Marc by Marc Jacobs store, Astley signed copies of The Teen Vogue Handbook—a primer on breaking into the business of fashion—for a crowd that included Pixie Geldof and Henry Holland (pictured with Astley), Venetia Scott and her daughter Lola, Edie Ashley (granddaughter of Laura), and Katie Hillier. So what words of wisdom did they have to offer?

Henry Holland suggests “being enthusiastic—just go for what you want and don’t be scared.”

It’s about “timing and meeting people at the right time,” according to Venetia Scott, who has worked with Marc Jacobs as well as at V, i-D, and The Face. “Marc gave me a very big break and I still have that break! And meeting Juergen [Teller] was a lovely thing as well.”

Designer Katie Hillier credits the late super-agent Katy Baggott, who also represented Phoebe Philo and Juergen Teller: “She trusted me and believed in me and got me to where I am now. I’m just pleased and proud that she managed to see me win Accessories Designer of the Year last year and launch Hillier.”

“Persevere, always keep smiling, and never flap,” says Vogue U.K. market editor Emma Elwick-Bates.

And stylist Sam Ranger recommends hard work, total commitment, and interning a lot. “From 16 till the end of time” should do it, she said, or at least until “it all finally pieces together and you’re very happy.”

Henry Holland Gets His Singapore Slings In A Can


House of Holland‘s Henry Holland logs plenty of air time, as anyone who follows his Twitter already knows. Recently, the designer showed his latest collection in Singapore. He sent back a few photos of the scene—ever so slightly blurry, thanks to the on-the-go camera of choice, BlackBerry.

Colin McDowell invited us to show Fall 2010 at Audi Fashion Festival in Singapore last week. It was perhaps one of the biggest shows we have ever done, with around 700 guests, and a great way for us to showcase the collection to the Asian market. Other designers showing at the festival included Dsquared² and Roberto Cavalli. I took a few snaps on my BlackBerry of what we got up to.

Late night fittings meant the only Singapore Slings we managed were from the 7-Eleven and came in a can.

Next season, we’ll definitely consider the height of our heels! I look like a dwarf. Continue Reading “Henry Holland Gets His Singapore Slings In A Can” »

A Taste Of Home For Les Newyorkais


Revelers who made it through the queue in the freezing cold, down four flights of stairs, and into the classic Parisian night spot Le Regine last night had some serious celebrating to do. “We’ve been working hard,” said Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon, one of the party’s co-hosts, of his crew’s rigorous fashion week. “Tonight we’re dancing.”

Even fashion’s workaholics took a break. Street shooter Tommy Ton put down his camera, he said, “for the first time this season,” joining a crowd that included designers Alexander Wang, Henry Holland (pictured), Matthew Williamson, Daria Werbowy, and Jen Brill. Erin Wasson, in a crinkly leather hat, joined Opening Ceremony’s Carol Lim and company at the see-and-be-seen table behind a few tubs of vodka on ice, while Lindsay Lohan holed up in a more Frank-and-Dino corner, playing coy—well, as coy as one can play in a snowball-white fur hat during an impromptu amateur photo session. The New York, New York party has traveled around the international fashion weeks—it’s already made a London appearance—and it’s already developed a few standbys. It just wouldn’t feel like home without dancing on the banquettes, a haze of smoke (not always officially approved), and, of course, “Empire State of Mind.”

London’s In A New York, New York State Of Mind


Have iPod, will travel. That seemed to be the thinking behind last night’s New York, New York party, which hopped the Channel from its traditional home at Paris fashion week and touched down at London nightspot Sketch. “I like to say we were invited by the Queen,” joked Sophomore designer Chrissie Miller, who co-hosted the party with, among others, Grand Life’s Tommy Saleh and editor at large Derek Blasberg. “I just wish she’d do something about the fucking smoking laws!” That was a taste of NYC many partygoers could’ve done without, but other hometown imports were more popular. When Miller took Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind” for a spin during one of her stints at the turntable, there were plenty of British Isles accents to be heard in the crowd sing-along (pictured).

“I just came for the toilets,” quipped menswear designer Aitor Throup, who was huddled in the corner with Erdem Moralioglu. “Seriously—you have to check them out, they’re insane.” He wasn’t wrong. The loos at Sketch are space-age, egg-shaped pods that talk to you. But the real attraction at the party was the company, which included both New Yorkers (Leigh Lezark and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld) and Londoners (Peaches Geldof, Charlotte Dellal, Henry Holland, and Stephen Jones). Turns out the cities aren’t so different, either. “It practically feels like home,” deadpanned Miller, as she grabbed her jacket and went outside for a smoke.

Blasblog From Paris: Jeremy Scott—London Bound?


Jeremy Scott has driven his fun-filled train of style through nearly every major fashion capital in Western civilization, putting on shows in New York and Paris, and basing his operations in Los Angeles. But the city he’s considering for his next takeover could be London—at least that’s what friend Henry Holland explained. “We’d take him,” he grinned at the designer’s after-party at Régine’s Saturday night. The Brit, fresh from a one-night trip to New York for BFF Agyness Deyn‘s birthday, credited Scott’s cool temperament with the presence of so many fellow designers at his bash, Erin Fetherson and Jade Jagger included. So what of a move to the U.K.? “I love London,” Scott said. “They know how to have a good time there. I’m plotting, I’m plotting—” But he had other stops on his immediate agenda: He was taking his nephew to the zoo on Sunday, and then to EuroDisney later in the week. “Eh, I’m a pretty good uncle,” he smiled, tugging on this tiger-print jogging suit.
