however...the idea of fewer european designers being available (or affordable) is pretty depressing, no?...

It's really good for American designers though.

During WW2 American fashion got a huge spurt because most department stores had to halt buying European collections and rely on domestic talent. Of course it's not so dire now but it could turn out to be an exciting development.

i say what what

i agree with both the above statements...
we could see benefits for american designers here in the US...
and this cannot be good for brands outside the US...

but this is going to be bad for everyone.....

The luxury bussiness is expanding to China, Indie and other countries. Here in Vietnam you have two LVs, Bally, Ferragamo, Burberry, Escada, Gucci, Sergio Rossi, Longchamps. I have heard that Prada and Hermes are coming (need more sources

Kenzo and Pucci are stocked in multibrand boutiques.

I don't know if they are making profits at the moment. LV might want to be here just for their global presence. It's their strategy to be somewhere first.

Hi guys,

There is a quote I'm looking for that says something like 'Fashion is always wild during dark times/recessions.'

I'm curious to who said it. I read it a few years ago and true enough, neon & prints became a thing.
