If this is true, I dare to see it as the beginning of the end of Paris Fashion Week. Though it’s iconic and a legend in it’s own right, this might take it down a few notches on everyone’s list. Christian Audigier, the designer for Ed Hardy, has a clear image in my mind of rappers, fallen rock-stars and euro-trash. His looks are anything but classy and fashion forward so it was a shock for me to read on NY Mag’s The Cut blog that he’ll be showing at the Paris shows for Spring 2010. I can’t imagine seeing his show alongside Karl Lagerfeld’s or others of the like. Though he’s tacky, he’s not stupid. He’s promising a performance from a famous pop star. This is sure to get him press and his show excess attention.
In case you are a Christian Audigier fan, he just launched a range of champagne and wines.
