‣ Dior is releasing their second video campaign and judging from the images released, it’s going to be a fashion fantasy come true. The short film titled Secret Garden 2 – Versailles is set in an enchanted forest and was filmed by fashion photography’s dynamic duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The film is being released next month.
‣ Who says e-vites have to be tacky? Paperless Post, a US e-vite company has teamed up with Oscar de la Renta to create a line of stationery inspired by prints from the designer’s recent spring ready-to-wear, resort, pre-autumn and bridal line. They’ve even offered the option of being able to buy the range in paper format for those who want to take the old-fashioned snail mail option for invitations.
‣ Speaking of Dior, the fashion house’s disgraced former creative director John Galliano is giving his first media interview since his drunken anti-semitic outburst in a Paris bar two years ago. The designer has largely been in exile since the incident and after losing his post at Dior, his only role has been as a designer in residence at Oscar de la Renta. Galliano was also due to start a teaching post at Parsons The New School for Design but the post was rescinded by the prestigious fashion school last week. The designer will be revealing all in the July issue of Vanity Fair as he tries to mount a fashion comeback. Only time will tell if the fashion world is ready to forgive and forget.
