The first fashion Facebook report of the New Year

09 January 2009


Facebook's back in fashion! Everyone's returned from their festive breaks and straight onto their laptops. So what's going on? First up we are seriously feeling for Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte who was woken in the night by a tremor. Those dastardly LA earthquakes! But otherwise it's January as normal in Fashion Facebook land. There are people doing their tax returns - gold stars all round. Then there are those STILL on holiday, or if you are David Furnish, you are just about to go on holiday (again) - this time he is on his way to Cape Town. Naughty Telegraph Fashion Director Hilary Alexander hasn't logged onto FB since November 11. Are you OK, Hils? Luella Bartley has just made friends with Amanda de Cadenet. Savannah Miller wants a holiday... Well, she won't be getting one of those until AFTER her London Fashion Week show. We're all rooting for you Miller sisters! Another busy fashion bod is the milliner Stephen Jones whose Facebook update states he is "paris>london>paris>london>>>' and we know why that is - he is preparing his hats for Christian Dior's Haute Couture show in two weeks time. Can't wait to see them Stephen! Back in the UK, we want to hear what Jenny Dyson thinks of the Beano HQ in Dundee; she is there today. And finally, we have news from Stefan Lindeman, Grazia's former Shopping Editor, who has taken the post of fashion editor of German Instyle, he says he is "busy busy". Ah, we miss you Stefan!
