London Fashion Week, Day 4: Burberry and More

The weekend moved at a breakneck pace this season, taking industry insiders to London’s four corners to see all the designers had to offer. But there is no rest for the wicked, and the schedule was only just ramping up to Monday, the busiest day of them all. Here’s what is coming:Photo

Wilson/Getty Images• There were plenty of designers in attendance at the Downing Street curtain raiser to fashion week on Thursday night, but only one appeared to have dressed half of the movers and shakers in the room: Roksanda Ilincic. The Serbian-born, London-based designer had both Natalie Massenet and Samantha Cameron wearing her creations, not to mention two women wearing the same black and yellow shift evening dresses. Her latest show — no doubt packed with plenty of her usual signature color-blocked, sculptural designs (Michelle Obama and Melania Trump are also fans) — kicks off the day.Photo

Mr. Zhang, born in Qingdao, China and based in London, gained experience in Dior’s haute couture atelier before introducing his namesake label in 2011 and having his London Fashion Week debut in September 2012. Since then, his collections have been sold at Browns, Moda Operandi and Bergdorf Goodman; he also was among those said to have been considered to replace Alber Elbaz at Lanvin earlier this year. Mr. Zhang has said his major influence is his Chinese heritage, particularly aspects of his native country’s craftsmanship and design, and he wants to build its next big luxury lifestyle brand. Watch this space.Photo

It’s hard to believe it has been a whole decade since he was tipped as the one-to-watch, and all eyes will be on his spring 2017 collection being showcased at the Tate Britain gallery this afternoon. With Mr. Kane’s ceaseless determination to be different, the anniversary show is likely to be predictably unpredictable.Photo

The creative director, Christopher Bailey, stepped down as chief executive, for one thing, and in February the brand announced that it would hold its first see-now/buy-now show during fashion week. For anyone who wants a preview of the collection, inspired by Virginia Woolf’s “Orlando” (certainly an on-trend gender-bending reference) and being showcased in a new venue and in a new evening time slot, The Times will be backstage and streaming the action on Facebook Live from 6:45 p.m. U.T.C. onward.• Think after a 14-hour day you are too weary to party?

Then think again. Marc Jacobs, Mert Alas, Katie Grand and Poppy Delevingne will be hosts tonight at the bash of the season, celebrating the latest issue of LOVE magazine, that collector favorite. The location will be Loulou’s, London’s stuffiest but most exclusive nightclub, and the theme is Berlin 1989. So whack on those shoulder pads and brush up on those Duran Duran tracks; with rumors that a graffitied Berlin Wall will be built down the middle of the dance floor, this is not a night to be missed (if you can get your hands on an invitation, that is).

One unexpected factor could determine if you'll divorce or not

If you're in it for the long haul, you might want to consider watching costs when planning your wedding. The less expensive, the better your chances are of staying hitched.

According to an Emory University study, stress about wedding related finances can start to lead couples down a rocky road. The wedding ceremony has a large impact on whether you will get divorced or not. The average cost of a wedding is around $30,000 dollars and research shows that a more expensive engagement ring can lead to divorce court.The argument is that young couples may already be in student loan debt and struggling to handle those payments. The long-lasting benefits of a big, fancy wedding are much less tangible than the lasting benefits of a college degree and subsequent earning potential.

The study found that couples whose weddings cost more than $20,000 divorced at a rate roughly 1.6 times higher than couples whose weddings cost between $5,000 and $10,000. The couples with the lowest likelihood of divorce were couples with weddings costing $1,000 or less. However, the study also reports that the higher amount of guests in attendance at a wedding correlates to a lower rate of divorce.

While everything in the wedding industry seems to be expensive, if you're looking for a lavish fairytale wedding you may be better off cutting your costs for a long term happily-ever-after.

“Project Runway” star Tim Gunn: Kanye’s fashion line a “hoax”

The only thing dumber than Kanye West’s fashion line is whoever’s buying and wearing it, says “Project Runway” star Tim Gunn.

“I’m totally perplexed about why the fashion industry has not looked at these, frankly, dumb basic clothes and cried hoax. Hoax,” Gunn said during an interview with Access Hollywood. “I mean Kanye West is a sphinx without a riddle. I just don’t understand why people are so in awe. Look at this. They’re basically wearing .. stretch undergarments.”

Kanye’s New York Fashion Week show, which was an outside affair that started two hours late, was dubbed a “hot mess” by USA Today. Gunn hopes it inspired no one to buy any of Kanye’s threads.

“I think the only thing dumber than the clothes would be the people who would buy these clothes,” he said.

Here’s the entire interview. In typical “work it out” style, Gunn pulls no punches!
