RANDOM POST - GENEVIEVE JONES


WHO IS GENEVIEVE JONES?

When you Google her name that's probably the most frequent question that comes up. I already posted about her a few months back. I couldn't resist doing it again since I learned she has a new handbag and accessories line that's recently come out. I've heard many rumors about this girl, that she's southern, from an average income family and says she's in her 20s, but her real age is estimated at around 32. How did an ordinary girl climb her way to the top socially to become a designer (Inc Zac Posen) and Vogue muse? Maybe it's that rich boyfriend that I've heard about or her good friend Margarita Missoni? No matter how she got to the top one thing is for certain, she's got great style and she gives us all hope!





GENEVIEVE'S HANDBAG
AND ACCESSORIES LINE




I actually really love all the pieces, I think they are well designed and that she or they put a lot of thought into it. You can see more here.

MATTHEW WILLIAMSON'S "
workload getting to much to handle with his own label, Pucci seems to be scouting for a replacement.
WWD.com reports that the Italian label has allegedly approached some design assistants to take the helm of the House of Pucci which has been under the care of Williamson since 2005.
Williamson's own label was established in 1997, but its growth is being accelerated after private equity firm TSM Capital acquired a stake in his company, Matthew Williamson Holdings Ltd, in collaboration with the Aronsson Group last summer thus shifting"

KATE MOSS "
could earn up to £25 million if plans to take her Topshop range to China go ahead. The collections she's designed for the high street chain, which are inspired by her own wardrobe, are already a hit in London and New York - and will now be the focus of the store's launch on the vast Asian country."

CALVIN KLEIN "
is kicking off its 40th anniversary with a good ol' fashioned party this September - and the celebration will last well into 2009.
This February the American house plans to showcase its men's collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. The last time CK worked it in the big apple was ten years ago - just before corporate retreated to the design's European Headquarters."

JAY Z "
Elizabeth Arden hopes to bring added urban appeal to department stores this September with 9IX Rocawear, the first fragrance to be launched under its Rocawear license.
In November 2007, Arden signed its fragrance licensing deal with Rocawear, the clothing label cofounded by hip-hop mogul Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter in 1999 and now owned by Iconix Brand Group Inc.
Carter continues to be involved in the business and retains creative control over the fashion, and Arden said that Carter had a strong hand in developing the fragrance — but 9IX is not intended to be “a Jay-Z celebrity fragrance,” said Ron Rolleston, executive vice president of global fragrance..."

BETSEY JOHNSON'S
"Soho store in New York pulsed with pretty young things in pretty party frocks Thursday, July 31, for a very special birthday party. As guests tried to stave off sweat with glasses of chilled pink champagne, Betsey Johnson and her business partner and CEO Chantal Bacon celebrated the 30th anniversary of their business surrounded by their friends, family and fans.

Mmm good gossip on Mathew Williamson and Pucci - I thought his last couple of collections were a bit lack lustre.

I'm shocked that the UK hasn't delivered any high street gems to you guys!
