    Not much longer now…just a few more weeks…

    Monday, August 13th, 2007

    …until S/S 08 shows start.  Am already eager for the creative overload to be fed to me via  The entire schedule is as follows:
    NEW YORK: September 5 - 12

    MILAN: September 22 - 29
    PARIS: September 30 - October 8

    I’ve been on the hunt for Diesel’s high-waisted short-shorts for months.  Unsuccessful so far, imagine my surprise when I logged onto their site today and found no ads or lookbooks but instead a countdown. 
    If you log onto Diesel’s website today you may just be able to view their fashion show live from Florence, Italy.  Fashionwiredaily […]
