I hate all the celebrity gimmicks attached to her clothes. She's well-connected and is able to get all these celebs to wear her stuff and create false hype.

Yawn.... No wonder she needed the celebrities. I can't imagine anyone giving this a second look.

I am confused. So Stella is having two shows? And she is moving back to London or no? I get that impression from this quote:

Quote:
IF the addition of Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen’s McQ label onto the London schedule affirms the city’s standing in the international fashion line up, surely Stella McCartney’s show tonight – if it can be called a show – proves her one of the most influential designers in the world.

People need to keep in mind she's presenting in paris in a couple weeks so this isn't the actual f/w collection..

Why does the above quote say

It's all rather confusing methinks.

Well, I have to agree. Such a disappointing collection!

I've made an adjustment to the title, because this isn't the F/W collection, this is however a capsule collection.

I still don't know why she's called a designer. If I had to pick anyone from the Paris calendar to kick out it would be her. She's a perfect example of "Who you know".

I suppose this is meant to celebrate British fashion and bring more attention to it now with fashion week.. which is good!

I'm indifferent to her clothes, as usual. And although I do applaud her efforts to make London fashion week an exciting event (which already is, imo), the ode to celebrity culture is hard to adjust to.. then again, she's a celebrity, her clothes are out there thanks to celebrities.. perhaps it's a little naive to expect her to do differently when this is all she knows.

I get the idea, i guess. But if she really wants to make London fashion week exciting (which I agree - it is that already), why not support it fully by showing her entire collection there, permanently? She is, after all, a Brit.

I agree with this so much. Her clothes are of good quality but only serve as basics, nothing to warrant the approval that many give her.
