Lauren Brown bags Balenciaga


nowfashion.com

Well Priscillas is having a great season. Frockwriter mentioned that the Sydney agency had three hot newcomers heading to the FW1011 show season. In addition to Christina Carey - who walked in the Marc Jacobs show in New York. And now, after Julia Nobis landed a Calvin Klein exclusive in New York, comes word (confirmed by Priscillas) that Lauren Brown has just walked in another equally prestigious show: Balenciaga. Fantastic get for Brown and Priscillas, which is presumably having a terrific day, following the news that a model Priscillas and its New York affiliate Elite unsuccessfully attempted to sign after Australia's Next Top Model Cycle 5 - Cassi van den Dungen - has just flown back to Oz after missing out on one of Paris Fashion Week's most high profile shows. With Brown apparently having already appeared at last week's Emporio Armani show in Milan, it does not appear to have been a season exclusive. Priscillas reports that Brown has been confirmed for only one other Paris show, as the arrangement with that show and Balenciaga was "semi exclusive" (ie in Paris). It's not the first time a Priscillas model has walked Balenciaga. Stephanie Carta made several appearances. But it's interesting that the agency didn't tip any media outlets in this leadup - as it did with Nobis in Milan, at least according to Pedestrian.tv, which ran a story about Nobis' future coup. Fortunately for Nobis, it didn't kill the option.

Waiting for a report on French Vogue's absence (or barring) from the Balenciaga show. Give us the deets, Patty.

Patty, you should do a story on why French Vogue were banned from the Balenciaga show. Its fantastic that a house is taking a stand against the corruption of fashion editors being on the payroll of certain designers as 'style consultants' which leads to a greater profile in their publications. If this happened in any other industry there would be a government enquiry. why do these fashion 'editors' not have to adhere to the same guidelines as other journalists. Underage models, specific weight regulations, workshop practices, there are so many other strict regulations now in place for all areas of the fashion industry, except this kind of shady practice - Mel.
