Vintage Lacroix

Cameron Silver of Decades Vintage Store Los Angeles also presented at SCAD Style. One of his pieces that caught my eye was this Vintage Christian Lacroix dress for Jean Patou. I later learned this dress was only presented on the runway in 1987 at Lacroix last show at Jean Patou and due to disagreements the collection never went into production and Lacroix launched his own label and so that collection was boxed up the whole time. Cameron just acquired this dress and it will be available at Decades Los Angles

Kelly Cutrone's Book Signing at SCAD Style Savannah

Hundreds of students, fashionistas and PR aspiring young girls turned out to listen to Ms Cutrone's presentation at the Savannah's College of Art and Design SCAD Style going on this week.
Ms Cutrone was definately a hit, her speech was as raw and real is it can possibly be, she explained how the real world works and what it takes to succeed (hard work and quit complaining).
After her presentation she signed her new book "If you have to Cry go Outside" .

IMG senior VP Fern Mallis steps down to start her own company

New York, NY
IMG senior VP Fern Mallis, who helms Fashion Week, is stepping down to start her own consulting company! She's calling it Fern Mallis LLC, and today is her last day at IMG. Mallis has been Fashion Week's planner since the event began eighteen years ago, when she was executive director of the CFDA. She said the move had been a long time coming. �When we were planning the move to Lincoln Center, it felt like closure, like the end of the cycle," she told WWD.

With IMG Fashion as her first client, Mallis won't abandon Fashion Week entirely. But with her stepping down from IMG as the veritable face of the event, Fashion Week moving to Lincoln Center, and Stephanie Winston Wolkoff signing on as Fashion Week director (a brand-new position), it sounds like we're in for a hugely different Fashion Week come September.
