Dear Shaded Viewers,

I missed the show, unfortunately but Todd Lynn will be in Paris for the collections and I’ll visit more with him then and report back with a few more images. Todd is the favorite designer of Marilyn Manson, Jagger and other rock stars including those sitting in his front row: Licks, Dirty PRetty THings and his ex-boss, Roland Moret. Giorgio Armani was also there with his entourage. Todd has established himself with his bespoke tailoring and likes to make clothes that he wants to wear. Another signature of TOdd Lynn is the way that he works with leather but more on that next season.
I asked Todd to model one of his expertly cut jackets that can be worn either on a woman or a man.

More on LOndon tomorrow. Later,


just thought that I’d show you the face of the winner of Fashion Fringe, Gavin Douglas. The head of the jury this year, and the presenter of the prize, was Tom Ford.
