Marc Jacobs Leaving Louis Vuitton!

2 Oct

Today my friends, marks the end of an era. 16 years after launching ready to wear for Louis Vuitton, Creative Director Marc Jacobs announced his departure from the iconic fashion house after today’s Spring ’14 show in Paris.  Let’s give credit where credit is due!  Louis Vuitton was mostly known for handbags and trunks before Jacobs stepped into the picture.  He literally made louis Vuitton the “fashion” brand that it is today.   I mean, he single handedly reinvented the designer collaboration!!!  Hello Takashi Murakami!!!! I was on a 6 month waiting list for my black rainbow Speedy bag! This really is a sad sad day in fashion:( I absolutely loved how Marc took the reins and ran with them and never looked back or cared what anybody had to say- in turn he helped Louis Vuitton experience their most profitable years to date!  Jacobs will focus on his own fashion lines with his “spare time”.

André Leon Talley To Leave Vogue

17 Feb

Vogue and flamboyant contributor André Leon Talley are parting ways after 3 fashion filled decades.  Word on the street is that Talley has signed on to host his own late night talk show.  The split is said to be amicable as Talley will remain somewhat involved with the fashion bible we call Vogue but wants to focus full-time on the talk show.  Is this the end of an era?  In my opinion YES!  Talley is synonymous with Vogue and all things fashion for that matter.  Do I look forward to his array of fashion forward talk show guests? YES! Can’t wait to watch!Andre

When I think of Vogue I will always think of Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington and André Leon Talley!
