Good gravy Marie! Between outages and lost connections and being stabbed by an angry teenage badger (not technically true) it’s been ages since I’ve posted. So how are you? Is it fall where you are? How are we loving London, New York and Milan? I normally heart Spring/Summer RTW but I’m super behind on the shows and haven’t been really punched in the throat by anyone but Marc Jacobs, who showed his best collection since Fall/Winter 2007.
Of course I’d be remiss in failing to mention Elena Miro’s runway show that opened Milan fashion week with an all plus-size show (unsurprisingly found nowhere on style.com which claims to have all the shows.) I’ll be honest, I’m not Elena Miro’s biggest fan and I was especially bored with this collection which I think could best be described as “slouchy and derivative” but I celebrate that FINALLY there are some plus-sized models on the runway that aren’t being used as gimmicks (see: Velvet D’Amour who stomped for Gaultier and Galliano in 2006.)
Take a look at a few photos from the collection and tell me what you think.
