15 Feb 12:48pm With Carrie and Samantha’s spat, we finally get to watch the real Sex and the City 3
The Guardian
What if you want to be all feminist-y, yet Sarah Jessica Parker v Kim Cattrall is the only news story you care about?Meanwhile, uptown, Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda met in the coffee shop to discuss Samantha’s latest post on Instagram. The girls all stared at Carrie’s phone, stunned. What dialogue could possibly convey the gravity of the moment? “I think my Instagram has just become InstaSCRAM,” Carrie gasped, shifting around in her Oscar de la Renta ballgown and tucking her blowdried hair behind her Chanel couture turban, which is how all journalists dress when they go out for coffee.

15 Feb 9:20am The view from the front row: a history of the fashion show – photo essay
The Guardian
Once, photographers were banned from attending fashion shows, with designers suspecting they were spies. Today, fashion shows are a multimillion-dollar global business. As London fashion week begins document the origins and evolution of the fashion show, from Parisian private salons to the snap-happy frenzy of the Instagram era Most fashion shows last less than 10 minutes, but have the power to transport an audience to another world. There’s an intensity to a great show, a distillation of a designer’s extraordinary vision. Once upon a time, though, things were a lot humbler. The intimate salon shows of Chanel in the 1950s bear no resemblance to Karl Lagerfeld’s fully-stocked supermarket in the vast Grand Palais in 2014. The main change is scale – along with location, set production, and budget. From John Galliano’s historical dramas at Christian Dior, to Hussein Chalayan’s theatrical impossibilities and the late Alexander McQueen’s gothic, heart-stopping wonders, we chart how the fashion show developed from low-key to king.

The Guardian
Designer performing his old tricks with ‘huge flourishes’ and ‘gorgeous fabrics’ at New York show In fashion now, real cultural currency comes from taking something woefully uncool – an Ikea bag, say, or a pair of Crocs – and giving it a catwalk makeover. Marc Jacobs was performing this trick when the current generation of designers were yet to learn the concept of irony. And he was at it again for his autumn/winter 2018 show on Wednesday night in New York.
