Paris Fashion Week , Sao Paulo Fashion Week , and the "Luxury Economy do not Fall Down"
This past week Paris Fashion shows were up and running. They had Dior, Chanel, and Givenchey. Typically they have 23 shows, but this week they were only three down to twenty. The Sao Paulo shows which are not quite as well known were filled with designers and people eager to look and buy. Forbes magazine had an article about how the economy has not prevented the wealthier segment from shopping for luxury items. They were featuring Brioni suits for $45,000, Bottega Venneta sunglasses for $6,000, and well made belts for $18,000.
