Style Council didn't find much love at the shows for former Fashion Week producers Smashbox. "They think they're hot shit and they're not," says one observer (who happens to work for current sponsors BOXeight). "They treated me like I was a second class citizen," adds a journalist. Conclusion: "That's the biggest, most crucial difference between Boxeight and Smashbox. Those who prefer their fashion mean, bitchy, and snobby won't find it (too much) here. It's a contrary notion: fashion that's inclusive rather than exclusive." [Style Council]
