Celebrity Fashion: Writers’ Strike Hurting Fashion Industry

First it was the writers.  Then it spilled into the production staff.  The makeup people.  The lighting guys.  Then, with no paycheck coming in, everyone in Los Angeles stopped going out to eat and buying video games.  Mortgages and car payments have fallen behind.  Then, no Golden Globes to watch and dissect.

So now who’s the latest victim in the two-month-old writers’ strike?

The fashion industry.

Yep.  Seems those red carpet strolls by starlets wearing designer apparel and jewelry “to die for” has become such a lucrative marketing strategy for the fashion industry that many designers rely on the “I gotta have it!” mentality of the adoring public to rack up scores of award season sales.  But with no award shows, there is no red carpet.  Which means no sales.

Hopefully, the writers will come to some agreement soon.  While we could certainly do without many of the brainless offerings filling television and movie screens in recent years, there are a few gems out there that deserve to be seen and recognized.  And of course, the elegant strolls down the red carpet just add to the enjoyment.

Not to mention the fashion industry’s bottom line…
