Balenciaga blacklisted French Vogue
Definitely we have been seen this times are changing...now even VOGUE gets blacklisted? We all thought VOGUE as the ultimate word in Fashion...you MADE IT when you are in VOGUE, or in their good side...now a fashion house such as Balenciaga blacklists THEM? WOW!
We are definitely living some times of change, and all we can say is...BRING IT ON...we are all ready for a change and I think houses like Balenciaga are starting a fashion revolution...what is next? More designers ditching Fashion Week? Supermodels becoming free agents?
This is the article found on WWD:
In other Balenciaga news, noticeably absent from Thursday’s front row was French Vogue editor in chief Carine Roitfeld and her team. They were barred from the show. “We’re blacklisted,” Roitfeld said with a shrug at Nina Ricci later in the day. “It’s too bad, it’s a beautiful house and it’s French. I hope that it’s not forever.” She noted Balenciaga no longer advertises in the magazine or lends it clothes, but stopped short of giving any reason for the rift. “Ask them,” she offered. A Balenciaga spokesman declined comment.
