Paco Versus Stacy

I've never hidden my admiration for great designers who've inspired me whether they be new on the scene or from generations past.  Paco Rabanne has been a big influence for me ever since I can remember and most of you know that I looked to his metal creations from the sixties when I started working on my debut collection last year, "Precious Metal" (for Spring 2011).  Even though the great Rabanne is alive and kicking, he hasn't been at the helm for a while and the collection has struggled in recent years (including an unsuccessful attempt by Patrick Robinson).  Still, the label has continued to be an important part of the fashion world and I am always excited to see what the they send down the runway each season.  This year, it looks like Rabanne's new designer, Manish Arora, tapped into Stacy Lomman : New York for some inspiration (IF ONLY!) as some of the similarities are uncanny.  At least I can say I did it first!
