“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”

You can say that again! And nowhere is this more true than in the fashion biz…In what seemed to be only a matter of time, Bonnie Fuller’s wildly popular, talked about, and successful US Weekly Fashion Week edition, which was launched at the September New York Collections, is soon to have a counterpart. I was not alone in observing that this entertaining and colorful free read, was one of the highlights of Fashion Week, providing us with something to do while waiting (and waiting, and waiting) for the shows to begin.

According to the New York Post’s Lisa Marsh, “IMG’s FAshion Week production division is launching a publication to go head to head” with Fuller’s brainchild. Called The Daily, it will be distributed at the fall/winter 2003 shows running February 7-15, and will be edited by none other than Brandusa Niro (who was fired from her post as editor in chief of Fashion Wire Daily). With Niro at the helm, one can only wonder just how low they will go in order to be sensational….hmmmmmm
