Betty Jackson is a firm favourite on the London Fashion Week schedule after being involved in the event for the last 60 seasons but this season the 62 year-old designer is notably missing from the line-up.
This week she confirmed that she has decided to take a gap year from fashion but will definitely return. "We're not closing the company, and I'm definitely not retiring," she told the Guardian.
Louise Wilson confirmed that Kanye West's line is definitely in the works and will be ready for the world come September but if you were still unconvinced, we have more proof. Yesterday Harper's Bazaar Australia confirmed that their fashion editor Christine Centenera has been consulting for the brand. After the pair met at Paris Fashion Week back in March, the editor and freelance stylist has been travelling to Paris twice a month to prepare for the debut.
Anne McCleod, from Harper's Bazaar Australia, revealed that:
It’s all very hush-hush at this stage, and Centenera refuses to discuss it when she is actually in the office, stating that West is a very private person and that it’s not her place to comment. However, this writer sits next to said fashion editor in the BAZAAR office, so one plus one equals two, right? We’ll keep you posted.
Earlier this year it was confirmed that Carine Roitfeld would be styling the cover and a full editorial in V magazine's 'Heroes' themed September issue. Drawing on the magazine's theme, Roitfeld has chosen Elizabeth Taylor as the icon of choice and the late actress' style will inspire a 72-page story shot by Mario Testino.
We couldn't be more excited for the issue to hit newsstands. Since leaving Vogue Paris last year, Roitfeld has stressed that any project she works on now is all about being creative and not being restricted by politics so you know that you can expect Roitfeld's work in its purest form in the coming issue. And besides, the legendary editors previous work for the magazine from as far back as 1999 is still referenced and celebrated today so expect a cracker!
