Fashion is a world of many emotions, but lately it seems to be centered around its extremes — sheer elation or utter depression. Tom Ford is depressed about leaving Gucci Group and Alexander McQueen is depressed he’s being considered for Tom’s job. The fragrance business is always being described as depressed. Even Ally Hilfiger, daughter of Tommy, had a memorable bout of televised depression recently during an episode of MTV’s “Rich Girls,” in which the spontaneous preparation of a Mexican meal led to a near nervous breakdown.
