>> In the wake of the womanly casting agendas at Prada, Giles, and Louis Vuitton for Fall 2010, The Imagist writes: "There's an unwritten memo now circulating . . . amongst a tight circle of model-makers and the message is this: the directive of the '00s to have armies of blank, disposable, lookalike girls marching at the service of the campaigns, magazines and the runways is over. New decade, new ideal . . . the early booking reports on the FW 10 campaigns and editorials is registering is a taste for ultra-individual girl." He hints that the Givenchy Fall 2010 ads and a Vogue Italia editorial currently being lensed both support the new direction.
