Marc Jacobs Thinks Young Funk-Very Young

“I do the show the way I think it should be and not the way somebody tells me it should be,” he said. “If their parents are willing to let them do a show, I don’t see any reason that it should be me who tells them that they can’t.”

Among the youngest models in his show were Thairine Garcia, a hot newcomer from Brazil, and Ondria Hardin, a North Carolina native who also appeared in Mr. Jacobs’s show last September, raising concerns at the time because she was then 14. In January, Ms. Garcia was described by Hint Magazine, which gave her age as 14, as “the most talked about teen right now.”

British funk band Jamiroquai, which inspired his enormous Dr. Seuss hats in colorful fake fur, Marc Jacobs, for his eccentric fall collections, was thinking about stylish women as they mature, women like Gloria Vanderbilt, Lynn Yaeger, Cindy Sherman and Anna Piaggi who, he said, “were becoming more flamboyant with age, because, in fact, that is how I feel.” This made it all the more surprising that some of the models he cast in his show on Monday night, however, were especially young.

Gucci Models Retreat – Milan to Amalfi !

Heavy Weight contender the Italian fashion brand Gucci flexed it’s muscles for their spring summer 2012 collection summoning countless models to Milan causing havoc at London Fashion Week. Several models got pulled at the last minute, and anyone in film production, or fashion knows what that can spell. Several models arrived in London late after the Marc  Jacobs New York show which ran late with models unable to make the last flight back to London and had to be pulled.  This can be anyone worst nightmare. Marc Jacobs holding rights till the last minute prevented several models from leaving in case they were cast. Then for London came the bomb Saturday with Gucci calling for pre-casting for the show tomorrow, several models had few options remaining but to head off to Milan and get back to London for Monday. New York and Milan call the shots in fashion, it’s where the money is. So what happens in London?  It’s not as if London has not fielded bombs before and they have managed quite well.  So what about those girls who walk the catwalk.  Here is what I would tell them.  Do your shows, New York, hit London, finish off the Gucci show in Milan then go straight to Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi, where you can simply catch up, relax, have a great view and then have the pleasure of  consuming the exotic foods prepared by the team of Chef  Alberto Annarumma.
