In terms of having a business, I wanted to let it go beyond what my personal taste is. Basically, I’m in a kilt and a white shirt every day. So, you know, I don’t have a lot of scope, and I’m really picky about what I wear. Even if it’s weird, it’s very particular to me. And you can’t make a business out of what I would wear. We’d be out of business.
Last week it was announced that Ben Reardon has stepped down as editor of i-D and is now heading up GQ Style. Taschen have since not wasted any time and have announced the magazine's deputy edior, Holly Shackleton, will take the top spot.
Reardon left the magazine with a successful September issue with three great covers - Kate Moss, Lady Gaga and Naomi Campbell - all shot by Steven Klein. "I'm excited to further develop i-D's position at the forefront of the style press," Shackleton told WWD.
Sometimes we get very giddy and we start making things that really look like fashion-show clothes. And I say, “I have to believe that someone I know would wear this.” It’s just not enough to like some concoction. I’m not interested in making stuff for museums; I want the clothes to be worn. I don’t care if the girl sits on a curb in them after a party and they’re destroyed. I have to believe that there’s going to be a life for these things. Otherwise, I wouldn’t send them down the catwalk.

The first pictures from Beyonce's House of Dereon line are out. Instead of following the less-is-more trend we've seen this season, Knowles has decided to go all out with fake tattoos and black leather.
It looks like the launch of her underwear line at Marks & Spencer has prompted Collette Dinnigan to looking into other possibilities.
Today WWD revealed that the designer is launching a diffusion range called Collette by Collette Dinnigan to target the contemporary market. The 35 piece collection will come at prices ranging from $70-150 compared to the mainline's $465-1,250 and will be a lot more than a cheaper version of the mainline.“It’s very much a travel-leisure collection — much more relaxed and bohemian,” she told WWD. “I call it city-to-surf.”
The diffusion line is something that Dinnigan has been thinking about for some time. “I’ve always wanted to do a diffusion line,” she said. “This felt like the right moment to do it.”
