Fendi’s Spring 2012 collection was inspired in part by Italian neurologist Rita Levi-Montalcini who won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1986. She’s a mathematician, a woman who loves luxury – she’s perfect, but real.

As Karl Lagerfeld explained to us backstage after the show ..” You have the instant feeling of refined work and quality that only Fendi can do….only this can be done in Italy…”

The Versace Fall 2011 collection was one of the season’s standout collections at Milan Fashion Week.
Designer Donatella Versace went back to the roots of the house, using the baroque tulip which was one of her brother Gianni Versace’s favorite flowers. It was a strong show from every point from the medusa buttons to peep toe boots to the military styling that is sure to be a huge trend for fall. The show had a sense of nostalgia about it as the show was held at Via Gesu – the location where her brother Gianni Versace did all his fashion shows.
Tom Ford has produced a short look book video starring Abbey Lee Kershaw, Natasha Poly, Arizona Muse, and Anja Rubik for his Fall 2011 Collection. These are the first images anyone has seen of Ford’s actual collection that was shown at a top secret, private, invitation-only presentation during London Fashion Week in February. All the editors and invited guests were asked to sign confidentiality agreements restricting the release of any reviews or photos until the summer.
Just like his Tom Ford’s Spring 2011 collection, no outside fashion TV camera crews or fashion photographers were invited to document the event. So this video teaser published on Tom Ford’s website is the first images we have seen of the collection. What can we say, this collection was worth the wait – it’s breathtakingly beautiful and absolutely stunning.
