Next week, the Versace for H&M runway show is set to go off in New York. It was already going to be a grand affair, but WWD reports today that it’s got even more star power than we thought—Prince and Nicki Minaj are both performing after the show. In the spirit of collaborations, maybe they will do a duet? [WWD]

Well, the fashion deck keeps reshuffling itself. This week, as we continued waiting for word on who will be taking the reins at Dior, two surprise—and surprising—announcements came from fashion’s headquarters over in Paris. First, it was revealed that Opening Ceremony founders and local kids-made-good Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are setting up shop at Kenzo (fueling speculation that the outgoing Kenzo designer Antonio Marras might be, yes, taking over Dior). Second, news broke that, as Robert Clergerie hands over his namesake footwear brand to Fung Brands Ltd., Roland Mouret would be coming on board as creative director.

What will it take to catch the eyes of Roland Mouret, Claudia Schiffer, and the rest of the judges for London’s Fashion Fringe prize? “A little joie de vivre,” Mouret told British Vogue of the three finalists the judging panel selected for the annual award. (“Asking ‘would I buy it?’—that’s not important,” Schiffer added.) All three finalists will show their collections on the London runway in September, where the winner will receive a two-year package that includes financial assistance, studio space, and mentorship. This year’s top three? The Latvian/Israeli duo behind Fyodor Golan; Royal College of Art grad Nabil El-Nayal, who previously won the British Fashion Council’s M.A. scholarship; and California-born, Singapore-raised, Central Saint Martins-educated Heidi Leung, who’s worked at Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane. (Leung’s sketches are at left.) The prize has the potential to send its winners to the next level of the fashion stratosphere—case in point, Erdem Moralioglu, who nabbed it in the past.
