CLOSE-KNIT FAMILY: The Missonis have another budding designer in their midst. Theresa, the 14-year-old daughter of creative director Angela Missoni, is a whiz with recycled T-shirts, cutting, shredding and decorating them into sexy shapes. During fittings for the Missoni show Monday, Theresa actually made a sale: to model Gisele Bündchen, who insisted on paying. "I’m a supporter of young designers," Bündchen told the Missoni clan.
That being the case, young Theresa should raise her prices: Even though Bündchen is only doing a few shows this week — Missoni, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada — sources estimate she’s pulling down between $25,000 and $40,000 per show. Not that that’s her record. Word has it a Brazilian firm recently paid her $200,000 for an exclusive appearance.
ABOUT FACE: Marc Jacobs will soon have a supermodel to watch over him — and all his employees. The Jacobs company just purchased a massive painting of Christy Turlington by New York artist Richard Phillips to add to its collections of snapshots of the supermodel. Phillips’ photo-realistic image of Turlington’s face adorns the cover of the current issue of V and is destined for several exhibitsbefore landing at Jacobs’ headquarters.
IF YOU BUILD IT…: It wasn’t quite built in a day, but it was still an Italian engineering feat. The massive venue for Roberto Cavalli’s show Monday practically rivaled the Fiera in scale and resembled a lavish set from "Turandot." The structure was built from scratch in under two weeks with a crew of some 300. The designer has a six-month exclusive on the site.
FASHION 101: Tourists walking through the Galleria in Milan’s center Monday stumbled upon a fashion roundtable outside the Prada flagship. But it wasn’t Miuccia expounding on her vision of sexiness. Instead, Beatrice and Francesco Trussardi were giving their views on the connection between fashion and sport.Luisa Beccari, Marta Marzotto and Mario Boselli, president of Italy’s Camera della Moda, are among fashion figures giving lectures this week on such topics as "Who Is More Vain: Men or Women?"
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
