From hideous to ridiculous, Jodie Marsh tops her wardrobe shocker TWICE in one day

We didn't think Jodie Marsh could top the shocking silver and black spandex outfit she bulged out of at Thursday's Big Brother party.

But she's done it twice the very next day.

New mayor seeks to restore fashion glory for Rome

ROME (Reuters) - Rome's new right-wing mayor alleges he wants to turn the ancient city to a fresh hub for budding acquire designers, dismissing criticism overly the city's rich art and culture credentials should take a beating below his command.
Gianni Alemanno, a former youth leader of a neo-fascist party, was elected on a law and circumstances ticket and had constantly attacked his centre-left predecessor for focusing on glitz and rolling out the red carpet to stars and musicians.

But Alemanno, famous additional for his hardy stance on crime and illegal immigrants, informed Reuters he too has an eye for the artistic, but provided a focus on substance alternatively as opposed to image.

That signals encouraging local talent, developing engender schools and maybe setting up a university faculty focused on obtain in Rome, he said.

"I desire Rome to become a city of fashion, focusing more often than not on young and new designers; searching for a enduring and exact character such a sets it up as a base for excellence in fashion," he declared on the sidelines of a Gucci obtain prove in the city.

"I'm endeavoring to be larger number of concrete, to stay away from such a presently is wrapped up -- as properties say in Rome -- recently transiently, for only image; for me such have to be a truth based in Roman generation and production."

Former mayor Walter Veltroni was credited amid reviving Rome's cultural scene, partly by begun an worldwide film festival the current brought going back a good deal of of the "Dolce Vita" glamour of the 1950s and 1960s.

He in addition lured attain designer Valentino returning to the capital for a celebratory establish survive year before retiring.

Still, Rome has for ages wrestled to provide its place on the build map, inactivity in the shadow of Milan in the north.

Organizers of the city's twice a year AltaRoma acquire weeks undergo as well continued making aim at young talent in a bid to enhance the city's compose profile, but amid mixed outcomes so far.

The produce weeks boast a rotating catalog of emerging designers based on information from something like the planet the present draw the interest of B-list Italian stars and wealthy Romans to this shows, but politicians and engender purchasers are often conspicuously absent.

The big Roman build structures such as Fausto Sarli suffer for a long while complained which Italy's political superiority -- plus individuals dressed by the designers -- snub this parades.

AltaRoma CEO Adriano Franchi displays such a additonally which is a legitimate complaint, Rome attracts a larger amount of compose buzz as opposed to the designers come up with it charge for.

"Designers, in as still as they're creative, are expended to complaining," he imparted upon Reuters. "Dissatisfaction is the make who pushes you come up with somewhat beautiful."

Alemanno, who met Roman designers at his office on Wednesday, declared properties can count on him at least.

"I've continued in office for easily two cycles and I'm right now here," he alleged subsequent to the Gucci catwalk show, "which proves we are latest and we is able to invest a lot in astronomical fashion."

Ethical designer Hamnett enjoys fashionable return

ROME (Reuters Life!) - British designer Katharine Hamnett is relishing a comeback now that the fashi
Hamnett stormed off the fashion step four years ago subsequent to her pleas to use organic cotton fell on deaf ears.

But the designer whose oversized T-shirts in on slogans like "Choose Life" and "Use a Condom" were all the rage in the 1980s is enjoying a return now which "ethical fashion" is in vogue.

"Years ago when I was talking about this I was a voice in the wilderness and now I have purchasers come up to me and say 'Oh, you were better all along,"' Hamnett said in an interview at Rome form week, where she was promoting ethical fashion.

Once a fixture on the London catwalk scene, Hamnett severed her contracts with licensees in 2004 to commit how she calls "commercial suicide" and headed back to selling T-shirts when her social and environmental initiatives drew miniscule amount support.

Today, she is not only enjoying a revival of the slogan t-shirt look -- actress Sarah Jessica Parker wore one in the "Sex & the City" movie -- but also plans to launch an "ethical denim" jeans line so proves ethical doesn't mean frumpy.

"It's got to be make first, and then environment," claimed Hamnett, who produced a stir by meeting British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1984 in a T-shirt emblazoned with "58 percent don't want Pershing," in a reference to U.S. nuclear missiles.

"Nobody's going to buy clothes out of pity, you're going to buy clothes because you look for them, it's something that instigates you feel great, it's not anything that is kinda black and lumpy."

Hamnett's return comes as Western shoppers increasingly demand clothing made without sweatshop or child labor and develop a fondness for environmentally-sound fabrics that are made with recycled equipment or cotton grown without pesticides.

Once the domain of a few niche labels, today mainstream brands and large retailers have all hopped on the "organically made" and socially responsible clothing bandwagon.

Hamnett reports she is convinced the demand for this type of clothing is a lasting trend and not easily a passing fad because it is driven by consumers -- a voice the fashion industry can't afford to ignore within the duration of an industry downturn.

"Consumer fuel is finally incrementing its ugly head. It's want the sleeping giant too is waking up," she said.

"My experience is you try to difference the create arena from the inside and they say "f... off" but talk to my dentist, doctor, and others and they're desire 'Oh my God.' You appreciate people are very kind-hearted."

She's also trying to convince designers the present going ethical makes arena sense.

She lists studies showing companies that followed ethical practices were a good deal more profitable and favored by consumers and says organic cotton adds only 5 percent to the cost of a t-shirt but raises profits for poor cotton farmers by 50 percent.

"Industry is in such a bad way, this is the only new thing properties haven't tried," she says, referring to the global economical slowdown that is biting into profits at apparel houses.

"It's the new big thing."

As for critics who question designers who fly to fancy parties, stay at luxury hotels and gobbledygook about saving cotton farmers dying of hunger in Africa and India?

Hamnett says she has reinvested everything into her projects for ethical fashion and continually searches for a easier life.

"I always thought that you ought to be celebrated by being a bad person," she said. "The problem is to do it making a terrific person."

Florence cashes in on "pre-season" fashion wave

FLORENCE, Italy (Reuters) - Florence, where Italy's fashion industry got its start more than 50 years ago, is carving a new niche for itself by exploiting booming demand for pre-season collections.
The Renaissance city gave birth to fashion dynasties Gucci, Ferragamo and Pucci and was the home of Italian fashion until the mid-1970s, when designers like Armani and Versace began showing their collections in Milan, closer to their factories. It has since focused on childrens wear and menswear shows that have attracted buyers from around the world.

But Florence has recently begun hosting twice-yearly womenswear "pre-collection" shows that precede the standard spring/summer and fall/winter shows.

The new trend is driven partly by clothing retailers such as Zara and H&M, which frequently update the merchandise in their stores and change their window displays every few weeks, said Raffaello Napoleone, CEO of Pitti Imagine, which organizes Florence's fashion weeks. That means other retailers cannot afford to stock their windows with the same pieces for months on end.

"The only way to stimulate the consumer is to offer different things. This approach has pushed the manufacturer to think of selling earlier than in the past," Napoleone told Reuters. "Due to globalization, due to the consumer's approach, you have to be very fast to offer opportunities to retailers."

In January, Pitti became the first company to hold a major trade show devoted entirely to pre-season collections. About 6,500 buyers and visitors, including those from large department stores, attended to watch 39 such collections, he said.

This week, Pitti is hosting W_Woman Precollection's second edition, with 65 designers showing their 2009 pre-spring/summer creations. New York-based designer Diane von Furstenberg kicked off the event with her 2009 pre-spring/cruise wear collection.

"In the future we are sure that all companies will start presenting collections four times a year," Napoleone says.


Pitti focuses on the smaller fashion houses with annual sales of between 5 million and 30 million euros who need trade show exposure, as many bigger names show off their pre-season ware to buyers privately in their offices or showrooms.

Even so, some of fashion's biggest brands are joining the trend of putting out more than two major collections a year by throwing lavish, celebrity-studded outings to showcase their "Cruise" or "Resort" wear.

Apart from being popular for displaying clothes that cut across seasonal lines, these collections are also considered a lucrative sideshow that can help weather the economic slowdown.

Christian Dior staged its resort show in New York's Guastavino's restaurant, Chanel showed off its cruise wear -- which hits stores in November -- in Miami Beach, while Gucci plans a bash in Rome next month to unveil its cruise collection.

Von Furstenberg's Florence gala to launch her travel wear collection this week was no less decadent, attracting Florentine nobility and stars like Eva Longoria and husband Tony Parker, who enjoyed a moonlit garden picnic afterwards.

Wide-leg white trousers paired with fitted jackets bearing metal buttons alternated with a mustard pantsuit and dark-blue or beige slacks. Breezy dresses in colors like saffron and turquoise flared out from the chest, often cinched at the waist or the neck with golden shells.

"I had in mind for this collection a very precise image of Talitha Getty in the 1970s on her terrace of her villa in Marrakesh," Giannini said, referring to the iconic photograph of John Paul Getty's actress wife who represented Bohemian chic.

"So I had very long kaftans, very printed and colorful embroidery ... all this mixed together represents this idea of colorful, of play and hippy chic."

Off the shoulder and one-sleeved blouses made an appearance, as did a bright orange short dress with puffed sleeves gathered at the elbow and a shimmery, gold-flecked ankle-length number.

Jackets were trimmed with leather on side pockets, while one featured a hoodie and another was paired with slouchy shorts.

Gucci's show coincided with Rome's high fashion week this week, and concluded with an open-air dinner and music bash in the villa gardens. The brand is owned by French retailer PPR.
