The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Oscar de la Renta to Shorten NYFW Invite List, Joe Zee’s New TV Show, and Donatella Versace is Loving Lady Gaga’s ‘Donatella’ Jam
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Oscar de la Renta is cutting the fat from his NYFW invite list, opting for a smaller crowd so that those whose actual jobs it is to see his collection are able to without having to deal with “huge crowds of people with no direct connection to the clothes.” De la Renta will have one show on September 10th in a venue with a 350-seat capacity.

• Last year, Nordstrom announced that they would be adding Topshop and Topman boutiques to a handful of their stores, in attempts to attract a younger, trendier customer. With the success of this initiative, the retailer is rolling out 28 new women’s and eight new men’s shop-in-shop locations at Nordstom stores across America. The new spots are slated to crop up come late September. (WWD)


ELLE creative director Joe Zee returns to television to host  a four-part special on the Sundance channel, “Revealing: Extravagance.” The show provides a look into how the high-end fashion market affects our interactions with each other, and perception of what is actually valuable. Zee gets industry mainstays like Carolina Herrera, Iman, Zac Posen, and more to weigh in on the issue, and performs a series of experiments to inform an analysis on how exactly we respond to the representations of luxury. As WWD describes, “One involves dressing a suburban soccer mom to the nines in couture clothing, Christian Louboutin shoes and a Birkin bag. Will her new duds serve her well or make her the object of scorn and envy in her community?” Joe’s got three other specials up his sleeve, but he wouldn’t divulge the subject matter of any. Catch this installment of “Revealing” September 20th at 10 pm on the Sundance Channel. (WWD)


American Apparel‘s ad campaigns have been pretty diverse (compared to other retailers), and it looks like they’re sticking to this trend.  The LA-based retailer recently put out an open call for transgender models to front their next campaign. Trans men and women over the age of 16 hit up American Apparel’s Chelsea store on Saturday in hopes that they might be chosen to pose for the brand. American Apparel has used transgender subjects before, most notably ANTM alum Isis King. (Fashionista)


Tom Ford shouldn’t be the only designer with a song dedicated to his brilliance! Lady Gaga‘s also penned a diddy, or as she describes a “love letter” to Donatella Versace, aptly named ‘Donatella,’ to appear on her forthcoming album, ARTPOP. And if you were wondering,  Ms. Versace is thrilled about the tune. “How incredible to see the news of Lady Gaga‘s “Donatella” song on Just Jared , one of my favorite websites,” the designer wrote. “I would like to thank Gaga for her geniality, creativity, incredible talent and super bitchiness. I am honored to be her friend and of course I love the song!” (Just Jared)

    I don’t blame Oscar. Fashion Week has become a mess with all the folks jockeying for front row seats to be seen, but are not necessarily fashion insiders or in the field.

    And as for the transgender models for American Apparel, it’s about time! Hope other major companies follow suit.
