Vogue, are you listening? I have a couple requests. Specifically, I've been thinking about which fashion designer you should hire next for your designer pattern line. I don't want to be rude, but I think your choices have been veering a bit off track lately.
Readers, we discussed the latest Vogue designer patterns here, and there was a general feeling of disappointment (to say the least). Personally, I'd like to see Vogue hire more designers with ultra-feminine, retro sensibilities. More Tracy Reese than Chado Ralph Rucci, in a nutshell. This all got me to thinking . . . if I could be in charge at Vogue for a day, which designer would I hire?
I did a bit of debating, and I have to say, I couldn't decide between Rebecca Taylor and Nanette Lepore. Can I please have both, Vogue?
I love Rebecca's ladylike looks that are both glam and wearable. And she's proven this season that she is a master of the faux two-piece dress. How cute are these little retro numbers? I'll take one of each, thank you.
Now it's your turn to play creative director, readers. Who would you hire?
