Talks and gossip have already hit the rumour mill as everybody tries to find out what surprises New York Fashion Week will have in store for us this year. Top of the talk is the rumour that superstar Rihanna will be unveiled as the new face of Chanel at Fashion Week next week. Another rumour generating quite a lot of buzz is the claim that Katie Holmes will not be returning to the runway this year to showcase her new collection for Holmes & Yang.
Rumours that John Galliano will make his return to the catwalk at NYFW this year have been confirmed as the designer announced he was taking up temporary residency at Oscar de la Renta’s studio in The Big Apple.
