"Designers here are unveiling their fall 2007 collections and already there have been moments that validate the most outlandish portrayals of the fashion industry in popular culture. There has been harmless silliness as well as evidence of the industry's unnerving disengagement from the society it serves. All of it falls under the heading of creative license."--Robin Givhan on Fashion Week
"Designers who put their collections on the runway are asking that their work be thought of as more than merely clothes. They are thrusting them into the forefront of the culture and asking that they be considered as part of the chain that runs from television to movies to books to politics to who we are."--Robin Givhan on Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Narciso Rodriguez/Thom Browne, Derek Lam/Rodarte at Fashion Week
