As the couture runway runs through the week, we feel inclined to revisit history and compile a short list of catwalks that don’t necessarily make for the nimble ambulation our models are accustomed to. Even the most grandiose of steps, and the most skillful of steps can overcome mistakes. Check out this as a cautionary warning because this week has just ended, we hope the Prada Spring / Summer 2009 show scene will stay in the beginning, and that their entire catwalker roster has taken some time to recover.
Naomi Campbell, Vivienne Westwood Fall 1993
Dating furthest back on our list, Naomi pioneered the path for fellow modeling, and showed all of us no downsides we couldn’t go back.
Catherine Loewe, Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2015
Loewe reappeared four times after missing a move or two. In a Gaultier outfit, it could always be worse.
Karen Elson, Zac Posen Fall 2008
With a clever trick, Elson closed the show with an unforgettable spill under the mound of tulle, and walked unscathed.
Bella Hadid, Michael Kors Spring 2017
Almost gliding flawlessly down the runway, young Bella Hadid regained her pace with the elegance and ease of a true showstopper.
Abbey Lee, Rodarte Spring 2009
While Abbey has had some graceful runway moments, Rodarte’s 2009 departure included a quick spill in the middle of the Spring / Summer microdress.
Tiiu Kuik, Oscar Fall 2004
Oscar de la Renta should think twice about furry trouser hems.
Lindsey Wixson, Versace Spring 2012
Dressed in supernal silk recedes and golden frivolity not often seen on Versace runways, Wixson drowns it all in one fell swoop.
Karlie Kloss, Fendi Spring 2011
Barely injured, Kloss closed the catwalk in a dive, adding a dash of vibes to Spring 2011.
Candace Swanepoel, Givenchy Spring 2016
The collective responsibility of the vanguard for Candace’s downfall must truly be a prerequisite for occupying the coveted seat.
The Entire Roster, Prada Spring 2009
Hard to look at, Muiccia Prada took the heist on a wooden sole that was probably better left in the box.
Caida Ming Xi, 2017 Victoria’s Secret Show
Even angels fall sometimes but that doesn’t take away from its beauty.
Kamila Wawrzyniak, Vivienne Westwood Fall 2006
Years later, we are once again reminded of Naomi Campbell’s iconic runway crashing onto the same catwalk.
Nina Porter, Burberry Fall 2010
Sometimes being in a model’s “shoes” is not as smooth as it seems.
Jessica Stam, Chloe Fall 2006
Jessica Stam made it out of this very painful episode with a smile.

Even the actress Eva Longoria The 2016 wedding dress was made by Victoria, 46 years old.
All the stars look very luxurious. The outfit was designed by Posh.

And with such marketing power, it made Victorian business struggles even more confusing.
The latest figures reveal that the Victoria Beckham fashion house has lost nearly £ 60 million over the past seven years.
And while the pandemic hasn’t helped, commentators say Victoria’s struggles lie in the fact that she hasn’t changed her popular image to one that can be associated with a normal woman.
Put simply, VB seems to be designing clothes for its own wardrobe, not a buyer’s wardrobe.
Fashion journalist Hilary Alexander said: “It’s part of the problem that the outfit appears to be designed to be worn by Victoria Beckham, who is somewhat exclusive to someone else.
“The design doesn’t fit the right kind of market.”
Another clue came at Paris Fashion Week, where sexy young designer Kim Jones – mentored by the late Alexander McQueen – presented his first collection of women’s clothing for Fendi.
Kate Moss, 47, for the first time joined on the catwalk by her daughter Lila, 18. Supermodel Naomi closed it.
Further evidence, it seems necessary, of the level of success still lingers on McQueen – who died 11 years ago – and his protégé Kim.
Victoria’s challenge was to join the ranks. She launched a huge frenzy in 2008 and with the backing of soccer star husband David, Beckham’s foray into high fashion emerged as a safe bet.
At the time, Victoria was heralded as a very promising fashionista, supported by Vogue editor Anna Wintour hard to impress, who championed her in magazine editorials.
Journalists called her debut a “very impressive and successful collection, with not a single outfit.”
Indeed, some of his first collections were both critically and commercially successful.
Since then there have been London fashion shows and partnerships with sports brands such as Reebok.
But financial success never followed. Victoria Beckham Holdings Limited, which owns the fashion business, reported a £ 2.5 million increase in sales to £ 38.3 million in 2019.
But it still lost money – largely because of the costs involved in launching Victoria Beckham Beauty.
Annual pre-tax losses for 2019 were £ 16.6 million, up £ 4 million in 2018. So far 2013, VBHL had an operating loss of £ 3.4 million. In 2014, it was £ 3.8 million, in 2015 it was £ 4.4 million and a year later it was £ 8.2 million.
And in 2017, the loss was £ 10.2 million. All of this apart from a number of injections of money to stay afloat. There have been reports of the Mayfair flagship store being empty, deserted, intimidating – like a museum.
Pricing is a problem. In November, fans refused to pay £ 515 for a VVB range sportswear.
One fan saw Instagram Victoria posts in gear and writes: “Have you ever gone out in a line the average person can afford?”
Another asked: “Couldn’t you design a more realistic price range for us commoners?”
A year earlier, Victoria made headlines for whipping a VB T-shirt for £ 390 per pop. The company’s financial woes may not diminish the mother of four’s personal appeal.
But he took criticism last April for 30 staff leave – when Beckham was worth a combined £ 335 million. There was a quick turnaround.
When Covid was hit hard, the company lost a fifth of its staff and reduced the number of annual collections it produced.
The auditor warns of “material uncertainty that could cast significant doubt on the company’s ability to continue as a going concern”.
The Board of Directors said it still needed shareholder support to survive. A spokesman for the VBHL did not comment.
But it’s not all bad news. The couple paid themselves £ 14.5 million in dividends last year – £ 39,726 per day.
David Beckham Ventures Limited, owned by the couple, manages the brand of the former Man United star, and partners with the likes of Adidas, Haig Club whiskey, and his stake in Inter Miami CF, the Major League Soccer team he co-founded.
DBVL revenue rose to £ 16.2 million. Allowing a £ 1m prize for Unicef, of which David is a goodwill ambassador, DBVL made £ 11.3 million in profit in 2019.
Impressive figure. And they can convince Victoria’s supporters that she, too, can still shape a successful future.
There’s a moment of really good celebrity style, and then there’s a look that really sticks out with you, that you try to recreate at home. In ‘Great Outfits in Fashion History, ‘Fashionista editors revisit their all-time favorite pervert.
Fashion week may not be what it used to be, but at the fashion “show” in Paris this week, there are a few AND a supermodel the stunt double we’d expect from such an event.
In Kim Jones’s debut outing for Fendi on Wednesday, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Christy Turlington appeared to model their friend’s first couture design. It was an exciting moment in an era sadly without the supermodel content we crave.
This feels like a great excuse to throw it back to the decades-old photo of the three of them posing together in a sleek, sleek dress at the 1995 Met Gala. The pale yellow strappy Calvin Klein dress really impressed me, but Campbell and Turlington also looked fantastic. On the one hand, each dress quite accurately reflects the style of the woman who wears it: Moss is the embodiment of sexy aloofness, Campbell’s bold charm, and classic Turlington elegance.
The photo invites viewers to ask themselves: Are you Kate, Naomi, or Christy? Shop a few options for each in the gallery below.

Chinese-born, designer based in London, Huishan Zhang will come to his 10th birthday in the fashion business and he accomplishes many things today.
He studied at London Central Saint Martins and after serving Dior Paris in the third year (he was chosen by Delphine Arnault no less), he started his namesake label at 2011. He is greatly influenced by his national identity and geographic location, so expect East-West romance to meet and not to mention, luxury.
Aesthetically has a global appeal, and this allows him to mark most of his work list. Top stockist (Bergdorf Goodman, Selfridges, Joyce, Harvey Nichols, Moda Operandi) check, celebrity fans (Gwyneth Paltrow, Felicity Jones, Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Saorise Ronan) check, and then there are awards (Elle China Designer of the Year, LVMH Prize finalist and recipient of BFC Fashion Trust) checks.
And there’s more, because the V&A Museum includes its ‘Dragon Gown’ couture in the T.T Gallery. Tsui, made him the first Chinese contemporary fashion designer to receive this honor. With all this under his belt yYou would think there isn’t much more on the to-do list, but as Zhang said, he felt like he was just getting started.
Felicity Carter: What is your first memory of fashion?
Huishan Zhang: That was the first time I opened a fashion magazine in China when I was in middle school. I am very fascinated by the world of fashion and have the ability to take me to far away places and let my imagination run wild.
FC: What inspired you to study fashion, and why is it Central Saint Martins?
HZ: I am interested in the multicultural nature of London and Central Saint Martins is my first choice to learn to follow in the footsteps of my fashion design icons.
FC: How do you summarize the aesthetics, and marriage between east and west?
HZ: Traditional meets modern life.
What is luxury for you?
Beautifully considered and manufactured products that stand the test of time in quality and aesthetics.
FC: Who are your customers?
HZ: Our customer base is very varied and covers many ages and nationalities. I would say that he is cultured and travels well.
FC: What is the foundation of your brand?
HZ: Quality, Luxury Ready to Use with varied international couture and demographic techniques.
FC: Which was the first time you designed it and how did it happen?
HZ: meIt is a traditional Chinese cheongsam that I am still inspired by. My debut collection is an extension of this cheongsam and a work is displayed in the permanent gallery at V&A.
FC: What’s on your mood board right now?
HZ: Many new things and developments from our pillar fabric. I have fun with this collection. It makes me think of the better times we have.
FC: You stocked up at leading stores globally – which was the first stockist to pick you up?
HZ: The first store is Browns in London. Mrs. B actually came to my apartment to buy a collection directly and I still remember the excitement of that day.
FC: You’ve accomplished a lot in your 10 years, what else is on your to-do list?
HZ: I sometimes feel like I’m just starting!
I would love to have a mainstay in China because my heart is always divided between the United Kingdom where I study and live half the time, where I own my flagship store and have a part of my team and China, where I grew up, owned my shop and was surrounded by family .
We continue to add things to our company list of things to do, so there will be interesting things in the brand shop!
