NY FASHION WEEK






























IMAGES backstage - NY FASHION WEEK captured by BARRINGTON GROUP from some of the shows including LUCA LUCA (beautiful collection) where we saw the lovely Victoria Secret model OLUCHI sitting front row with her adorable baby and hubby while backstage we had a lovely time with all the paparazzi's going crazy over IVANA TRUMP and MISS USA (looking smashing) along with the super power tennis player SERENA WILLIAMS (who kept me up the night before waiting to see if she was going to win her 9th Major Championship title); the late night was worth it as she was quite gracious and kept flashing her Million Dollar smile (I'm sure she was smiling because she had earlier collected $1.5m for two weeks of work - winning the U.S. Open)!

CONGRATULATIONS, SERENA; YOU WERE SMASHING!

STEALING BEAUTY

Model: Agness Deyn

The tables at Egg in Williamsburg are made for messy breakfasts; they are covered in simple white butcher paper, easy to replace. It is also a perfect surface for drawing, should a young and hungry model agent want to sketch out a map of the inner workings of their industry. “OK, so this is IMG,” he says, writing the name of the agency in gray crayon and circling it. “This is DNA, this is Women and this is Elite.” He goes on, doodling bubbles across the table with a bitchy smirk. “Over here is Ford, Next and Marilyn, and One Model Management. Wilhelmina is way over here but doesn’t count—they are just a commercial stock house. Not important.”

NEW DELHI — An old woman missing her upper front teeth holds a child in rumpled clothes — who is wearing a Fendi bib (retail price, about $100).

In Vogue India magazine, a child from a poor family modeled a Fendi bib, which costs about $100.

A man modeled a Burberry umbrella in Vogue that costs about $200. Some 456 million Indians live on less than $1.25 a day.
A family of three squeezes onto a motorbike for their daily commute, the mother riding without a helmet and sidesaddle in the traditional Indian way — except that she has a Herm├Ęs Birkin bag (usually more than $10,000, if you can find one) prominently displayed on her wrist.

Elsewhere, a toothless barefoot man holds a Burberry umbrella (about $200).

Welcome to the new India — at least as Vogue sees it.

Vogue India’s August issue presented a 16-page vision of supple handbags, bejeweled clutches and status-symbol umbrellas, modeled not by runway stars or the wealthiest fraction of Indian society who can actually afford these accessories, but by average Indian people.

Perhaps not surprisingly, not everyone in India was amused.
