Here are the rumours, whispers and predictions that are doing the rounds this morning, prior to the imminent big week of shows.

Bryanboy will be mending bridges with all the top tier editors and veterans of fashion week reporting that have previously thought of him as an annoying pushy upstart by being followed by a REALITY TV CAMERA CREW to all the shows he attends. That should warm them up to you, BB.
Several insiders are predicting that more than a couple of designers will be downsizing their shows in an attempt to make them more intimate, more exclusive and, well, more like Mr Tom Ford basically. Derek Lam, Zac Posen and Alexander Wang are three such.
Oh and if all of THAT wasn’t enough to keep you amused between shows and parties, then there is the perennial COURTNEY WATCH. Although she is still a rock Goddess, she is now something of a fixture on the international fashion show scene and every show she attends she stamps on more protocol and breaks more rules than the last – causing a lot of consternation from the uptight fash pack. We for one will bring you regular sightings of Ms Love so stay tuned to Grazia Daily for show reports, FROW action and much much more!
Enjoy . . . .
