By Julien Macdonald

You hear all kinds of nasty rumors in this business. Last summer I heard that after the brilliant Alexander McQueen departed the house of Givenchy, Julien Macdonald was brought in to be the “fall guy” so that he could be quickly gotten rid of and the house completely re-organized. After several false starts, Macdonald has apparently decided to stop trying to be Givenchy and just be himself. In his former life, he was a London bad boy designer who was a lot about sex—bondage straps and leathers. But this show was also about utilizing the best of what Paris has to offer from its ateliers. He used beautiful lace and sequins to make stunning pieces. Don’t count Macdonald out yet
