First day of couture in Paris and Fashion East announces their winning designers and on Gawker today a comment on the marketing department behind The Heart is Deceitful above all things

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Today marks the opening of the much reduced couture schedule in Paris. My first show is at noon, stay tuned.


Fashion East in London announced the new winning designers to be showcased in a few weeks at the London Fashion Week:  Marios Schwab – Spijkers en Spijkers-Edward Meadham & Benjamin Kirchhoff. What I find interesting is that Marios Schwab and Spijkers en Spijkers were in the selection last season. The way these contests work is that industry experts propose the names of the emerging talents that they think are most deserving. Topshop is the commercial force behind this contest.

Marios Schwab is now one of Fashion Weeks most eagerly anticipated new stars.

I loved’s comment today on the marketing department behind the film based on J.T. Leroy’s book: "The Heart is Deceitful above all things."
