COCO ROCHA
Model Coco Rocha Confirms More Wedding Details..

Coco Rocha is in full marriage preparation mode, happily updating the industry with every detail for the nuptials she plans to exchange with interior designer, James Conran.

Pretty soon, we won't have too much to look forward to. That is, after the model walks down the aisle.



Unlike Lara Stone and her wedding details, Rocha has confirmed Zac Posen to design her dress, confirmed her summer wedding date (June 9th) and recently confirmed that the wedding will take place at the same location where Conran proposed. According to Elle Canada:

5TH AVENUE
This Week In Events

This week turned into a whirlwind of events for us, by way of store openings, collection launches and a Fall 2010 presentation.

In tow of the events came great company, as we graced the floors of Esprit's flagship store openings with tons of celebrities, previewed Ruffian's Threads & Heirs collection with prominent Paper Magazine editors and spotted The Real Houswives of New York's Alex and Simon at Blanc De Chine's Fall 2010 runway show.

The Quick Stop: March 26th

Theory To Invest Into Proenza: Earlier we reported that Permira, the owner of Proenza Schouler and Valentino, had intentions of bettering both brands, but didn't deny their willingness to sell their stakes for both labels. A day after the news was released, Proenza's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez met with Andrew Rosen, CEO of Theory, for a meeting that is speculated to place Rosen as a potential investor. Nothing has been confirmed, but hey, it wouldn't be a bad idea.

BLACK SWAN
The Rodarte Girls To Design Fur?

This week has been a good one for Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sisters behind Rodarte. With word spreading that they will be involved with the costume design for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, it's quite a pleasure to hear they may be designing fur for Revillion as well.

Peter Dundas left the French fur label when he was appointed as designer for Pucci, thereby prohibiting the label from showing last month at Paris Fashion Week without a designer.

Moises De La Renta Launches Mango's MDLR

Though we didn't make it down to Mango on Wednesday for Moises De La Renta's (son of Oscar De La Renta) MDLR launch of ten embellished tees, we've heard good things about the bevy.

The 25-year-old, said that he was inspired by romantic themes and graphic illusions for the capsule bevy - which may mean he's on the right path, considering First Lady Michelle Obama donned a dress from his Fall 2009 bevy.

Karl Lagerfeld Takes Over New York!

The next 10 days in New York shall be quite interesting. Andre Leon Talley, of Vogue, hinted his anticipation of Karl Lagerfeld's arrival - as plenty have been spotting him around the city. Lorenzo Martone, Marc Jacobs' beau, spotted Lagerfeld snapping models donning Fall 2010 Chanel in Soho. It's said one of the models may be Abbey Lee Kershaw. Could this be a campaign?

Perhaps.

FASHION
Is Milan Really Ready For Marc By Marc Jacobs?

The highly anticipated Milan Marc by Marc Jacobs store will host an event opening April 15th during an international design and furniture exhibition.

Though to our eyes, it looks just like any other overly-cluttered Marc by Marc store we've come across - with neon blue strobe lights in tow - the new location is a cafe the company's president, Robert Duffy, was eager to test out.

But, we all know, Jacobs' retail stores aren't necessarily set up for the season's clothing (well, at least if you work in fashion), but for what they will do with the clothing for window displays.
