    the versace show is supposed to be 'out of this world'

    cant wait to see what the original barbie has come up with this time.....

    no doubt fernanda and eva in bear hugging floor length gowns with high thigh slits ;)

    i wish i was there.....i really do......perhaps i would if the b*stards at versace in milan actually let me do work experience earlier this year instead of coming up with excuses like 'there is nobody who works here by that name' or..... 'there is no room in the atelier'.....or 'but where would you stay, we cant just let you wander off on your own'

    I am so excited for the couture in Paris! It's time again for sartorial flamboyance and out-of-this-world fashions. I just can't wait! ;)

    Lena, you always seem to love things that are kinda amateur and non-well known. sometimes it really annoys me that you hate popular things :p i think you do it on purpose ;)

    the thing about fashion that some designers dont understand is........you dont have to try to re-invent the wheel every season as it were.........its more about creating a signiature look then working with that by refining, modifying and exploring better ideas

    i think we should expet we are all diffrent and have diffrent atste and some of us like more mainstream and some of us like more underground, i think with out this we would all be dead, I dount think any one is puting any kind of illusions on , why would they, this is the internet, most of us will never meet.
    That said


    Im very exited for

    Gaultier- becuas he always has such fun and sophisticate ceatiful couture

    Dior- becuas I think the couture is always very original. although im praying he stopes doing waterd down couture for pret a porter


    Ann Valiere Hash(sp?)- becuas i think she has alot of intresting ideas and it is diffrent from alot of couture

    Lacroix- Even though i think most of his collections all look the same , i still like him

    Versace to Put It On at the Ritz

    By Karl Treacy

    Donatella's had a last-minute change of mind.

    The Atelier Versace haute couture presentation that the platinum-haired designer was due to present in the Versace flagship store on Paris' tony rue du Faubourg St-Honore next Monday evening will now be shown at an even tonier address: the Hotel Ritz on Place Vendome.

    In January, Versace showed her last couture collection -- a well-edited line-up of 10 looks -- in the Paris flagship to a very positive response. She is said to have been pleased with the result, since people could appreciate the couture workmanship of the clothes up-close, instead of seeing them as the incidental entertainment for a celebrity-laden front row.

    A spokesperson for Versace said that there was no major reason behind the location change, save perhaps the fact that the fall couture line-up has grown to 15 pieces and the setting of the Ritz's Salon Louis XV would provide more room for the static presentation.

    The Ritz is almost a spiritual home for Atelier Versace as it's there, on the covered-over swimming pool in the Health Club, that Donatella's late brother Gianni always showed the line, utilizing the dramatic sweeping staircases for the models' entrances and exits.

    The Versace spokesperson stressed that there were no celebrities invited to attend the presentation. "This is about the clothes, about seeing the work of couture," he clarified. There will, therefore, be no post-presentation party, unlike previous occasions when Liz Hurley and P.Diddy drove star-starved paparazzi into a feeding frenzy at one of the legendary bacchanalian bashes.

    Elsewhere on the couture calendar, Adeline Andre is moving her Monday show from one part of the Marais district to another. The new location for the 6:30pm show is Studio 58 at 58, rue Charlot.

    Belgian designer Libertin Louison, a protégé of Martin Margiela, who was supposed to show after Ralph Rucci at noon on Thursday, will now present his collection in a showroom by appointment.

    Glad Donatella is taking couture more seroiusly but I think the parties and paparazzi is the fun and essence of Versace. Though I'm not a Versace gal!
