Alessandra Facchinetti gets the boot!

Alessandra Facchinetti's gig is up. In a dramatic fashion, immediately following its runway show, Valentino confirmed the swirling rumors regarding Facchinetti's leave and announced Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, longtime accessory designers at the house, as her successors. "Absolutely nothing was selling. The traditional Valentino customer was completely alienated," said a Valentino source.

Valentino fans and industry professionals are optimistic about the newly appointed successors. "Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli are madly in love with the Valentino style," said Valentino Garavani intimate Carlos Souza. Another one bites the dust.

Aw that is too bad for A. Facchinetti!

I love your blog and post! Also, thank you Sean C. for you lovely comment! You seriously and literally made my day :)

Do you all just enjoy high-fashion, work in high-fashion or are high-fashion students [like myself] hoping one day to work in the backstage arena of the industry?

I'd love to write for your blog if the opening is still available ;)

What sort of new things are you trying? I'm just curious.

Well, keep you the fab work on your blog darlings! Lots of love!
