VIDEO: Roberto Cavalli defies the credit crunch

02 March 2009

If there's one man determined to declare war on the credit crunch, it's Roberto Cavalli. Last night he celebrated the launch of the Cavalli credit card with a private dinner attend by fashion editors, celebrities and even British Royals. And his A/W '09 show this morning had a similarly cavalier theme. He sent a collection of asymmetric miniskirts decorated with silver rivets down the catwalk on models he'd imbued with serious attitude - in part, no doubt, thanks to the thigh-high boot-leggings. Saying that, the warrior-like mood was lightened periodically by body-skimming full-length sheer dresses over leotards and beautiful watery silk print dresses. Elizabeth Hurley nodded along on the front row with approval...
