What Happened This Week?

eBay News eBay officially launches it's "Fashion Vault" which is designed to rival such sites as Gilt Groupe, RueLaLa and HauteLook, and Vente-Privee in France. The Fashion Vault features designer fashion from "trusted sellers and designers" during 2- to 3-day sales events. The next "flash sale" featuring French Connection is scheduled to take place at 8 am PST Monday morning. As of now one top designer has opted out of participating anymore. New Fee Structure starts March 30th so make sure your ready or next months fees will hit you like an overdraft charge. If you haven’t already, be sure to choose the new fee option that will work best for you. What I have found is that you need to list over 250 items for the upgrade to premium to save you any money.

Tom Ford is launching his own line. In October he came out an announced he was launching his own womenswear line. But he's been very secretive about it since. Very unlike Ford as he does like to tout his own horn. Rumor has it he will launch during Fall 2011. Only 2 seasons away. Sources also say he is planning presentation rather then runway and is also in talks for to open a store in Shanghai. Tom Ford Builds Women's Team [WWD] On Project Runway I was very sad to see Anthony get the boot. He by far the funnest one there and now I fear it will become a Mila whine fest. This weeks test was designing their own designs on fabric through the use of computers. Vivienne Tam was there whoring for HP and designed the most adorable fabric. Anthony telling Jay he looked like a "gay Christmas ornament" had me laughing out loud. Anthony struggled during the fabric design and Mila created a mess of stripes. Emilio created a signature print then insulted Tim Gunn when he expressed concerns about it. BAD Emilio. And wth was up with Michael Kors? He looks like he's making a deal for the mob. Is Redarte going to design furs for Revillon? Could be. Rumors have it that they are in talks with Revillon now. Peter Dundas was their last designer. he left in October 2008 to design for Pucci. Rodarte for Revillon? Coco Roche is getting married! In a French castle no less. Zac Posen is designing her gown and she is getting married in the castle where fiancee James Conran proposed.
