Carmelita Martell: People are buying at lower price points. Consumers are not buying as much, and they certainly are not giving the younger designers much of a chance. Some boutiques are even asking designers if they will sell their clothes on consignment because they can’t take the risk of carrying collections that might not sell. So the environment now is tricky. You really have to know your customer and strategize around what your customer wants to purchase. You seem to have tapped into this celebrity, fashionista, red-carpet phenomenon. Could you talk about that?
“Flawless. I really cannot find one thing I dislike about this collection. All these other designers who have hopped on the minimalist bandwagon need to stop because they will never be able to execute it with the finesse and simple elegance that Phoebe [Philo] can. Easily one of my favorite collections of the season.” [lelaid]
