Hunt For Steals

“I hate the crazy women—you know the ones at samples sales,” Rebecca Minkoff said. “If it’s a sale in a civilized environment, then I will go.” And despite the lure of a discounted Vena Cava wool cape or a Nicholas K leather jacket, shoppers at Lucky’s Lucky Shops VIP preview last night remained relatively calm. (Though one of the busiest boutiques was Minkoff’s own, where ladies were getting pretty animated about studded leather satchels.) A crew of browsers, including Hilary Duff and Nate Berkus (pictured), Michelle Trachtenberg, and Twiggy browsed the heavily-discounted racks, some with more urgent shopping missions than others. Duff picked up a few pieces from the sister-act jewelry line Dannijo, but what she really needed was something a little warmer than the Diane von Furstenberg L.B.D. she was wearing. “I didn’t bring a coat to New York this time, which was stupid because I am freezing,” she admitted. Then off to outerwear she went.


The Fashion Hunt

THE St Andrews Charity Fashion Show is on the hunt for this year’s top emerging designer in a new competition dedicated to raising the profiles of UK-based fashion talent.

A celebration of the charity’s nineteenth birthday, The Alfa Romeo Young Designer Award will entitle the winner to a £1,000 cash prize, the opportunity to design a fashion line and an exclusive feature and spread in the charity’s FS Magazine. Five finalists will be chosen to create a capsule collection to be presented in a photo shoot as well as in the FS 2011 fashion show on February 26 next year.

St Andrews Charity Fashion Show, which has been hailed as a key event on Scotland’s social calendar, is a student-run organisation set up with the aim of giving young talent a platform.
