The scenario is an all-too-common one during London’s fashion week. Front-row-only goodie bags are stuffed with hair products and fragrances, spa and spray-tan vouchers, posh notebooks, gourmet popcorn and designer water. A harried front-row guest arrives late, lights go down, show unfolds, lights go back up again. Oh, look, there’s a goodie bag under my seat. And surprise! It’s been picked clean—of everything but the press release. So who are those dastardly types who dare to nick their neighbors’ loot, the fashion show guests who could put Fagin and the Artful Dodger to shame.
“Generally, it’s the people who arrive early—the standers, the fourth-row girls, the people who come with the sponsors,” says one veteran p.r. executive. “And it’s not that difficult to take a bag if you’re passing by the front row. Also, it’s easy for the second row to reach under the benches and pick and choose what they please when it’s dark.”
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)

For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess. "Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hardside," said the singer. #wwdeye #wwdfashion ( : @slovekinpics)
