Chanel's Métiers d'Arts collection, produced each year to showcase the ateliers and craftsmen of Paris, is distinct in that each collection pays homage to different geographic locales.

"George Borababy and Timothy Chorba, testified . . . that they never said Moss was a lawyer, and Gucci never asked them."

The fashion industry in general and major designers like Gucci in particular are always beleaguered by knockoffs and fakes. Speaking of which, The New York Lawyer reports that Gucci fired their chief U.S. lawyer when they realized that he is not licensed! Jonathan Moss, former in-house counsel to Gucci, since 2003, was initially placed on administrative leave when the faux pas was discovered, but is now no longer with the company. Turns out Mr. Moss is in fact a lawyer, but did not keep up with his license (by paying bar dues and attending continuing legal education (CLE) classes)--he was probably too busy representing Gucci in legal proceedings! I just sat through two days of a riveting CLE focusing on Investment Management, btw.

"We've continued with the classics of Ann Taylor, but have updated it to make it more modern and elegant" - Kristin Rawson, Ann Taylor Style Director

Ann Taylor hosted a preview event for its Fall 2010 collection at Manhattan's Ace Hotel on Thursday, March 25th. The retailer, known to be a purveyor of sensible work wear, is revamping its image by incorporating trendy separates and accessories into its repertoire. Designer Lisa Axelson, formerly Senior Vice President of Design for Club Monaco, was brought on recently to "rejuvenate the Ann Taylor brand and strengthen its fashion positioning"; new ads featuring Heidi Klum and Milla Jovovich encourages the target audience to see the brand new Ann.

Ann Taylor's new mission: "stylizing current customers and looking to attract new customers".

The preview event featured Ann Taylor models who interacted with the many publicists, buyers, and editors in attendance. Celebrities such as Rachel Bilson of the OC and Christina Hendricks of Mad Men were in attendance and singer-songwriter V.V. Brown performed for the crowd.
