Trend de la Creme is a Coutorture Network Partner and our resident comparison contributor--her ability to match runway images and natural phenomena is truly remarkable. This week marks her first foray into the Spring 2009 collections and it's an intense start for sure. Erin Fetherston (before she moved onto a more structured silhouette) showed a Spring 2009 collection with a number of billowing frocks. Trend de la Creme noticed a comparison immediately--between those frocks and the mushroom clouds produced by nuclear bombs. Probably not what Fetherston had in mind but there's no denying the resemblance.
>> THE MODELIZER —The mystery of why Auguste Tomasuite (aka Auguste Abeliunaite) was crying through both of her passes on the Jil Sander runway continues, and even though there is photographic evidence, the brand's US publicist denies it happened: “No model was crying on the runway! No idea what you are talking about, sorry.” When shown the pictures: “I did not see it, can’t see it in the video and no one has asked about it to anyone in the press offices.” [Heard on the Runway]
