Four years ago, the First Lady catapulted Jason Wu into the national spotlight when she wore his white, one-shouldered dress for the Inaugural Ball. Will she do the same for another young designer or opt for a more recognizable name at this year’s gala?

Until recently, Italian womenswear and menswear labels Agnona and Ermenegildo Zegna have not received much recognition on the global fashion stage. No question that Stefano Pilati’s January 1 start as creative director of Agnona and head of design at Ermenegildo Zegna will change that.

  2. It’s funny that the rebellious and individual type of thing my boyfriend wore in the late 70’s- early 80’s which was chategoriesed by the media as ‘punk’ has inspired high fashion. In 2012 he couldn’t beleive he was seeing people in their 20’s buying expensive trendy ‘distressed’ clothes because punk is ‘on trend’. I’m actualy really glad it’s available (cheaply) on the high street as it was taking me a lot of time and faffing about to customise clothes and jewellery to get that same kind of look, which I’ve loved since I was about 10 years old :0)
