Fashion 2010: A Look Back

As we prepare to usher ourselves into a new year, here's a look back at the biggest fashion stories of 2010:

Jan 13: Halston announces that a deal with Sarah Jessica Parker has been signed, making her the president and chief creative advisor for Halston Heritage.

Feb 11: Alexander McQueen, having committed suicide, is found dead in his home.  The fashion world mourns the loss of a visionary.


May 26: Herm├Ęs announces that after seven years, Jean-Paul Gaultier will be leaving his post as the creative director.  Christophe Lemaire of Lacoste will be taking over the reins.

June 9: Supermodel Coco Rocha marries James Conran in a Zac Posen dress.


Aug 29: Kate Moss announces the end of her three-year partnership with TopShop.  The winter collection to be unveiled in October will be her 14th and last collection.


Sept 2: H&M announces that its next collaboration will be with the French fashion house of Lanvin, creating mass hysteria.

Sept 8: After seventeen years of showing at Bryant Park, New York Fashion Week shows for the first time in Lincoln Center.

Nov 17: Tom Ford returns to womenswear after six years, with his Spring/Summer 2011 collection.


Dec 17: Carine Roitfeld shocks the fashion world by resigning from her position as editor-in-chief of French Vogue, a position she has held for a decade.


There have been a lot of beginnings and endings for fashion this year, and I can't wait to see what the new year will bring.  I hope that for all of you, 2011 will sparkle with contentment, love, and great fashion.  Happy New Years everyone!

  11. @Sherin, E and stylemefab: I still cannot believe we have lost such a great, talented designer. It is obvious that even after so many months, he is still deeply missed. And I am also very sad about Carine Roitfeld; it feels as if we have lost another great mind.

  24. Did you go to see Lanvin's collection for H&M?

    Whether you bought a piece from the collection or not, your opinion interests me!

    I'm doing a PhD on this subject and am very interested in what you have to say.

    Here is the link to the Questionnaire

    http://sphinx.icn-groupe.fr/recherche/lanvin-hm-en/questionnaire.htm


    It will take no longer than 4 to 6 minutes and your help is very important for my study.

    Thank you for completing this form!
