Gareth Pugh Throws In A Scraf...

Gareth Pugh’s Spring ‘11 collection hit the runway (well, the video runway) in Paris yesterday—and the first pieces hit stores later that night. reports that the shop-the-runway trend is ramping up lately, and the charge is being led, no great surprise, by younger designers. On September 21, during London Fashion Week, Burberry offered guests at the events the opportunity to place orders straight from the runway through a custom-built Burberry iPad application. Following yesterday's Pugh presentation, 100 chiffon scarves (in signature geometric print) went on sale Nick Knight’s shop. “Gareth is in the vanguard of designers who grew up using the Internet and understanding its importance and power,” Knight tells “He therefore naturally sees it as a means to launch his collection to a massive worldwide audience in a way that represents the complete artistic expression of his work.”
