GUY TREBAY TRASHES MILAN FASHION WEEK - FASHION CRITIC LOVES IT

Leave it to Guy Trebay to expose the shallowness of the fashion world. Although sometimes his articles border on socialite commentary, they have often been my guilty pleasure because of his witty and sharp style. He first got my attention with his article on fashion forgery called "Imitation is the Mother of Invention," exposing big-time designers who often ironically complain about lack of copyright protection. This article has become iconic and is taught in fashion colleges and law schools alike. His article in the current issue of New York Times exposing the sillines of Milan fashion week is just plain hilarious. Thanks, Guy.

I love this one!. having worked for a big shot in design, a big talent, an arrogant little god. I was shocked to see how pages of designs made by Yves Saint Laurent in the past, would be collected together and "voila' the next collection would be born. The funny bit was when high society ladies and celebrities would gather at the end of the show to congratulate him for his " marvellous and ever so elegant and sophisticated collection"..Totally hilarious! but does anybody care ? No I don't think so. It's all about publicity, and the more publicity more money .
Yes fashion is a big scum more often than you would ever dare to imagine.
