THE WEEK IN FASHION: APRIL 22nd to APRIL 26th

Posted by Bethan Holt, Junior Fashion Editor at Large

The sun might not be shining any more but, hey, it's nearly the weekend. We can't have it all.  Before you sign off for the week, here's all your need-to-know fashion news.

As we reported earlier in the week, John Galliano is set to teach a three-day creative master class at Parsons. However, someone is clearly not happy with the decision to offer temporary employment to the designer who was sacked from Dior after he was recorded making anti-semitic comments. At the time of writing, there were 396 signatures on a Change.org petition which cites that "it is disgraceful to hire someone who has made such inhumane comments". Galliano has also been working with Central Saint Martin's students, setting a project for them which he then returned to comment on. FEAL is of the opinion that everyone deserves a second chance.

Christian Lacriox has been talking to Dazed Digital about his new venture, designing a couture collection for the newly revived House of Schiaparelli which we'll get to see in July. Lacroix hints that the 15-piece collection will be an in-depth, modern reinterpretation of "Sciap's" oeuvre rather than a bunch of shocking pink gowns. He said, "Her heritage is much too often reduced and simplified with the surrealistic and caricatural side of her clothes. But she made practical and modern clothes that have inspired many couturiers." For fashion geeks, the very fact Lacroix is designing anything at all is very exciting; his last couture collection was shown in 2009.

This week's latest Saint Laurent news is that... it's selling well. WWD reports this morning that sales have climbed 16.9% this year, the best sales results among all the luxury labels in the Kering group. There was particular emphasis on "significant growth" in menswear as well as "higher sales of iconic handbags and a promising start for new shoe styles". Lena Dunham also wore Saint Laurent this week when she went to the Time 100 event.

Another brand whose sales are storming is Prada, whose net profits increased by 46% in 2012. Today, Business of Fashion analyses how Prada is doing so much better than many of its competitors. The simple answer? Carefully measured expansion, great product and solid commercial strategy.

Are you a member of a book group? Maybe you're a college/university lecturer? Would you like some free fashion books to read and discuss? Novelist Linda Grant is offering to send you a bunch of copies of her book The Thoughtful Dresser. All you need to do pay is postage. Email Linda at Linda@lindagrant.co.uk if you're interested. To find out more, read Alice Rawsthorn's review.


It's less than two weeks until the Met Gala and for us mere mortals who won't be dining between Beyonce and Kim Kardashian there's a chance yet to get in on the action. For the second time, the event will be livestreamed but this time it's going to be better. We're promised a much improved quality of feed with Hilary Rhodha and William Norwich as hosts plus interviews with Riccardo Tisci and Anna Wintour, amongst others. While we wait, why not watch US Vogue's punk collections video, starring Cara D?



Victoria Beckham might be trying to get a Vogue cover, according to The Daily Star. We enjoyed the final sentence of their quote from "insiders" which goes like this; "Editor Anna Wintour enjoys making people work for it". Quite what Wintour might be making Victoria do to earn a Vogue cover is a game which could occupy us for quite some time.

Finally, Gucci's Frida Giannini has recently had a baby but James Franco spent 18 months filming her day-to-day life for his new film The Director, a documentary about Giannini's work at Gucci. The film is out later this year. Happy Weekend!
