Although there may be a trend toward opulence, you can still see a bit of that grunge look stickin' though.

Maybe it's just me (that or the hair) but the Dior has that opulence yet it still feels a bit "rock" if anything maybe a glam rock but not so much hip hop.

Valley of the Dolls and Russ Meyer sprang to mind for me when I saw it.

I remember in the style.com video podcasts of the shows, nearly every editor said about the shows; "Recession, what recession?" which sums up this perfectly.

^ I remember reading a recent article about prices for RTW skyrocketing to couture levels.

The rich are getting richer (and the poor are getting poorer).... Isn't that nonsense?
