Asian clients help Jill Stuart stave off weak economy

September 14, 2009

  Her popularity in Asia has helped designer Jill Stuart side-step some of the economic troubles plaguing her competitors, the designer told Reuters backstage after her Fashion Week show.

    In fact, there was a separate guest list for Japanese media attending her runway show at New York’s Public Library on Monday.
    Jill Stuart’s collection featured big shoulders, boots, tight leggings, cut-out details and very short dresses, a look she said was inspired by singer Cher.
