Jean Paul Gaultier Is Getting Rid of Ready-to-Wear

There will be one less collection showing at Paris Fashion Week after this season. Jean Paul Gaultier has announced that the ready-to-wear range he will be showing in a few weeks will be his last. The designer is doing away with RTW to focus his attentions on other projects, though mainly his couture and fragrance options. 

While it is always sad when a designer downsizes, in this case the move makes sense. “We looked at various possibilities considering the present state of the company and we have reached the same conclusion,” he wrote in a letter to WWD. “For some time, I have found true fulfillment in working on the haute couture and it allows me to express my creativity and my taste for research and experimentation.” 

Perhaps the move is an indication that Gaultier wasn’t doing so well in the ready-to wear market. Sure, his designs are truly creative and reflective of his great mind, but we’re thinking that his aesthetic wasn’t resonating with customers. Besides, his wacky proclivities seem to be better suited to a couture market. 

Fragrance is expected to make up the majority of Gaultier’s business once he nixes ready-to-wear (about 80 percent), sources say. 

“After more than 38 years spent producing men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections, it seems to us that the time has come to stop some of our activities and to concentrate principally on the development of the haute couture, of perfumes and to certain collaborations that I have not yet had time to explore,” he said. “This is a new beginning, I will be able to express again my creativity fully and without constraints.”

Julianne Hough stepped out in Los Angeles looking as pretty as a picture in a floral cut-out mini dress by Zimmermann. For her Extra appearance on Thursday, September 11, the actress went for a holiday-luxe vibe in a metallic piece from the Australian label’s popular Resort 2015 collection.

The colourful piece combined an exciting mix of florals and feminine prints, with a cut-out chest area showing off Julianne’s ample cleavage. Her petite frame made the number’s cold-shoulder detail look extra cute, along with fine jewellery and gold strappy Monique Lhuillier heels.

Her wavy bob and flawless makeup kept the look fresh and upmarket.

Courtney Love Publicly Shames Alex Perry Because of Wardrobe Malfunction

It was only last month that Alex Perry and Courtney Love were puckering up cheek-to-cheek for Instagram selfies amid a dress fitting, but now the 50-year-old rocker has publicly shamed the top Australian designer on the big bad world of Facebook.

Courtney claims the Alex Perry figure-hugging leather dress she was wearing split at the seams after the press line at the September 6 Sons of Anarchy Season 7
premiere in Hollywood. Rather than privately address her minder, Joe Dadic of PR and event team Point of Contact, the musician wrote to Joe’s Facebook wall to send the message on to Alex. (more…)

Karolina Kurkova is making Australian designers very happy lately. She recently sported Dion Lee at Fashion Rocks, and has now been snapped in Camilla & Marc for Russel JamesAngels book launch.

Hosted by Victoria’s Secret on Wednesday, September 10, the leggy blonde opted for a grungy strapless dress from the Australian label’s Resort 2015 collection, which features a plaid upper half and multi-slit black skirting.

It was a toughened-up look for Karolina, who went all out with a Jennifer Fisher choker necklace, pulled back stringy hair and dark eye makeup. It wasn’t all dark and moody, though — the Victoria’s Secret angel brightened things up with yellow shoes, cleverly complementing the hints of lemon in the plaid print.
