Fashion Weekly News (24/06-30/06)

   This week we are having a unique focus on the Men’s fashion week, otherwise not much has happened.

   Versace will take a decision by November whether it wants to sell a minority stake, privately or publicly. But who? Are last month's rumours true that Qatar Holding are "looking carefully" at investing in the Italian label?

   Delphine Arnault, Bernard Arnault’s (founder and CEO of LVMH) daughter is moving from a position of deputy general manager at Dior to the same position at Louis Vuitton this November. Antoine Arnault, Delphine’s younger brother is currently Berlutti’s CEO.

   Marc Jacobs has been the target of another graffiti attack by French graffiti artist Kidult, this time covering his Paris store. French graffiti artist Kidult tagged the shop windows with "$686" in neon green paint. Not one to miss out on an opportunity, and himself a huge art fan, Jacobs printed a photograph of the work onto a line of T-shirts and sold them for $686 (£446).

   Last Wednesday, Elizabeth Taylor’s first wedding dress—worn  when she married Hilton hotel heir Conrad Hilton in 1950—was bought at an auction at a Christie's auction today for £121,875 privately. The dress was estimated to sell between £30,000 and £50,000.
