An Open Letter to Alber Elbaz

Bonjour Monsieur,

We're two weeks deep into Fashion Month, and we know your incredibly busy with your own upcoming show, so we want to make sure you're paying as close attention as us to what's been happening on the runway.

It seems as though your stunning Spring 08 collection stunned more people than just us, having made quite an impression on a bevy of designers, both young and old.

We think it's only fair you charge a petite fee for the "interpretations" of your designs. You should, for example, earn 5% of sales for Jason Wu's jewel toned gowns, and at least 15% of the profits on sales of Alice Temperley's one-shouldered mini. We think you might also make a small fortune off sales of Jill Stuart, Ossie Clark and Erin Fetherston, to name just a few.

None of their dresses mushroom-cloud as beautifully as yours, none of the jewel tones seem as rich the second time around, but it's clear that none of their gowns would exist without yours.

A bientôt!
