It seems that the current crisis has affected the fashion industry, as well. Last month in London, for example, there wasn't a fashion week, instead of it they chose to do a fashion WEEKEND. Less designer fashion shows and more austere collections. Big fashion companies don't bet for risked opportunities. They prefer to follow comercial trends and hold on for a time. Although, while I was quite boring of what I've been seeing, Gucci has surprised with this spring-summer women's shoe collection. Can't wait to see infinite women walking through the streets with them.
You can also take a look at the men's fall winter 09-10 collection to advise what I told you about this time of austerity we're living.
