Blame it on dress-fatigue resulting from the royal wedding, the death of Osama Bin Laden, cultivated nonchalance or a lack of exciting shows, but pretty much the only sentence I’ve heard anybody saying here at RAFW is, “Oh God, I’m, like, so over Fashion Week already.” (Full disclosure: I’m personally having a bloody good time.) Jaded-chic looks best on young assistant fashion editors working on ACP, Hearst or News Limited titles, and often comes accessorised with bored facial expressions, first or second row yawning, constant phone-checking, leg-crossing and gripes about how at least last year they saw something new. Fashion Week isn’t all pretty dresses and champagne parties y’know, the youngsters wanna get inspired!
I LIKE YOU!
