LFW and NYFW Agree on Dates

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Shows, News,

Steven Kolb of the CFDADates for London and New York Fashion Weeks have changed in order to avoid a schedule conflict. NYFW will now take place from September 6 until September 13 this year while London will immediately follow from September 14 to September 18.

Moving LFW one week earlier than normal will help to avoid a clash with Milan Fashion Week which kicks off on September 19. "Both committees remain committed to finding a long term solution that would see a confirmed Fashion Season where brands and designer businesses in all four fashion capitals (New York, London, Milan and Paris), can plan for the long term and when exceptional circumstances arise there is dialogue and empathy to find a solution that works for all," said a statement from the British Fashion Council.

Steven Kolb of the Council of Fashion Designers of America added, "We've been back and forth on this. People are anxious and need to know the dates. There's no value for the cities to compete. In the spirit of working together, London and New York are in agreement that we will go in the earlier period, but with the hope that the four cities will come out of this confusion and work together to plan future show weeks. We need to begin to look at the fashion season not as individual fashion weeks, but very much as a global business."


Beyonce Knowles Compliments Her Models

Tina and Beyonce Knowles at LFW for House of DereonBeyonce Knowles made sure to compliment every one of the models during her House of Dereon show during London Fashion Week.

The singer-and-actress - who is expecting her first child with husband Jay-Z - and her mother Tina unveiled their collection at exclusive store Selfridges on Saturday, and the models admit she was a pleasure to work for.

"The show was all about power and attitude and having fun which made me really excited as many shows only want models to display the clothes. When Beyonce came in, she complimented all of us. I told her how beautiful her collection was and how I really loved the feather accessory from my first look. Then I bent forward and tickled the feather on her face - haha! She was lovely and was glowing, an image of pregnant perfection," said Leomie Anderson.

Malaika Firth added, "Walking for Beyonce's House of Deron was possibly the best experience of my life yet alone my career. I never knew that I'd get the chance to work with her and I was so excited when she came backstage to talk to all of us!"

Items Du Jour: Katy Perry Covers Elle, Lea Michelle Covers Cosmo

Katy Perry on Elle Magazine-- Mother of Johnny Depp's kids and muse to Karl Lagerfeld, Vanessa Paradis, makes eye patches sexy by sporting a black rose one on the cover of i-D Magazine. Is this her hint at wanting a role in Pirates of the Caribbean?

-- Katy Perry tones down her costume look for Elle magazine, where she instead sports a colorful Gucci suit. Looking a bit like Emily Blunt on the cover, Perry's business attire works well for her.

-- Of course, Perry can't always keep to tame pants suits. The 26 year-old appeared at the Mexico City launch of her new fragrance -- Purr by Katy Perry -- in a purple dress that left little to the imagination.

-- Continuing on her unspoken path to rid the cosmetic world of chemicals, supermodel Gisele Bundchen has just proclaimed her detestment of sunscreen, calling it poison. Of course, those who are fighting tirelessly for the prevention of skin cancer are outraged.

-- Speaking of outrage, Glee actress Lea Michele landed the cover of Cosmopolitan wearing a v-cut top that -- gasp -- almost reveals her navel! Naturally, Glee parents who have no concept of the difference between television characters and the people who portray them, are upset.
