EXPENSE ACCOUNT: Tim Hamilton has canceled his men’s show, which was scheduled for Saturday in Paris. The collection is in Paris and Hamilton is taking appointments. “I’m a small independent brand and the high costs of a fashion show have caught up with me,” said the New York-based designer. “It seems smarter to finish with a strong collection rather than create new debts. It’s about the clothing at the end of the day, not the spectacle.” It wasn’t his first time in Paris, but he said showing there would have cost four times as much as showing in New York.
