A few fashion week happenings just announced--it seems Paul Wilmot's Monique Lhuillier and Naeem Khan will be showing off-site this season while Oscar de la Renta will hold two off-site showings back to back. Oscar de la Renta was quoted in saying that this year was, in spite of everything, a profitable one for his brand. Other than having the financial means to hold two showings, we're a little stumped as to why such a gesture was penciled in to the 2009 budget. Is Oscar trying to stimulate the economy? Will he show the buyers one thing and the press another? Or is it that with all of the editors, buyers, and fashionistas scooting all over town to off-site shows (no doubt in some pretty serious heels), that two showings are just, in the end, necessary?
