PARIS — The international marathon of fashion weeks ended on a high note in Paris, with retailers lauding shows that were as business-minded as they were creative.
“If the mission of designers is to offer collections that are viably commercial, inventive and transformative, then the Paris fall collections were a tremendous success,” said Barbara Atkin, vice president of fashion direction at Canada’s Holt Renfrew.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
