Harry Potter. Avatar. Mulberry? One of these things isn’t quite like the others—though all three have benefited from the magic touch of Framestore, the visual effects company that worked with creative directors Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and Stephen Wolstenholme of House and Holme and Park Village director Luke Losey to bring Mulberry’s Tim Walker-shot campaign to life.

Goreski hit so many shows and events this New York fashion week—Lanvin on Fashion’s Night Out, shows by Simon Spurr and Michael Bastian, the Style.com tenth anniversary party—that the paper of record has dubbed him “the Zelig of fashion week.” Well, he does have those glasses… [NYT]
With all of the time they spend backstage in hair and makeup, no surprise that models have a lot of time for reading. Racked collects the best of models-with-books, including runway walkers like Tao, Nimue, and Katharina reading Faulkner, Evelyn Waugh, Lord of the Rings, and (ahem!) Style.com. [Racked]
