Josh Goot on-schedule again at LFW - with Sienna Miller


Oh my, the countdown to the Fall/Winter 09/10 season has already begun. Just how many designers will be swapping regular runway shows for more cost-effective, scaled-down "presentations", remains to be seen. In a demonstration, however, that not everyone in the fashion business is in dire financial straits at the moment - or that there's still a surprising volume of sponsor cash still floating around - London Fashion Week released its provisional schedule a few hours ago. And it's one of the busiest London schedules that frockwriter can in fact recall. Australia's Josh Goot is back again on-schedule for the second consecutive season at 12.15pm on Tuesday 24th February. One of the more interesting additions to join Goot and London's regular ready-to-wear retinue will be the international runway debut of Twenty8Twelve: the hybrid label from style-savvy British actor Sienna Miller and her fashion designer sister Savannah.

This is why I never have thought about becoming or want to be a fashion designer, what a seriously crazy schedule to think the SS09 shows haven't exactly being grandfathered yet. Thank god for Christmas time. As usual, looking forward to Nicoll and the usual suspects. I am wanting to see what Goot does as it says on his website now his studio is back here.

Patty, one only good thing happened on Ten News, Blanchett was wearing yes, that metallic solar panel dress from Balenciaga. I think everyone has been talking about this collection by Nicolas and also Alex Fury from ShowStudio featured it.

Once a designer is finished one collection they are always on to another, thank god ;)
