Betsey Johnson Will Show At New York Fashion Week
Despite the fact that designer, Betsey Johnson, announced that she would be forgoing this season’s schedule, she will be showing at New York Fashion Week.
The show that is scheduled to take place on Feb. 11 at 5pm at the Lincoln Center tents will debut Johnson’s new affordable dress line. The designer’s mainline brand was terminated after in April 2012, the company filed for bankruptcy.
Along with the unveiling of her new line, the 70-year-old designer will also be starring alongside her daughter, Lulu, in a reality TV series. The show will air on The Style Network in the spring.
Peter Som Takes To The Internet For New York Fashion Week
Although Peter Som won’t be participating in a live runway show, his designs won’t go unseen. Som’s latest collection can be viewed online at DigitalFashionShows.com. This idea that was created by KCD along with King + Partners has taken away the hassle of producing a live show.
Other designers not quite really for the full production of a live show are implementing this easier alternative too. Among these are: Alexandre Plokhov and Pierre Balmain.
Armani Thieves Arrested
In December, 1,378 items from Giorgio Armani’s spring collection were smuggled from Italy to Bucharest. However, reports released on Monday stated that 10 Romanian citizens had been arrested in Bucharest for stealing about $2.7 million worth of Armani merchandise.
The items were taken from a trading spot in Verona, Italy. The confiscation of these illegally obtained designer garments was brought about through the investigations led by the Romanian police.
