    i had come to associate balmain with de la renta's couture...i wonder if he left for financial reasons (sounds like they wouldn't have been able to afford him)... :unsure:

    i just love that everyone is finally acknowledging and talking about the hit that the industry took after 9/11...it was too weird when everyone was just pretending that it didn't happen and that everything was ok...i think that everyone thought the economy and the industry would just bounce back if we just had a positive attitude...so no one really cut back and tightened their belts...now we're seeing the result of that...

    i think this is the beginning of a real recovery...though it will be slow...admitting the problem is the first step to solving it... :flower:

    I think the couture houses were just counting on the fact that it wouldn't affect them...

    Let's face it, the couture world is a small and relatively sheltered one... They probably thought it would be business as usual.
