yawn. free shows given to the 3 main acts and the rest probably paying through the nose in the faint hope that this is their big break. Oh well the Fashion week wagon rolls on.

Does this mean that these designers will not show at RAFW at the end of April?

Patty Huntington said...

IMG says it's too early to say who will definitely also show at RAFW, but they anticipate that some will.

zimmermann's publicist has confirmed that zimmermann will be on board RAFW. remember this is not only a swimwear-, as opposed to fashion-focussed, showcase, but it's a also a completely different collection that the designers will be showing on the gold coast: first summer.

obviously it will come down to budgets. no idea at this stage what sweeteners may be being offered. given that its the first showcase, they'd have to be making it as attractive as possible to participants. if it was just about getting a free show and a holiday however, then you have to wonder why jets did not jump at the chance.

funny how they released this only days after the Tim Blanks compared Bondi as the only other iconic beach in the world beside Copacabana, but he does let Malibu into the loop.
Why go all the way to the GC when you could just stay in Bondi.
'Bondi Swim' anyone
