Per an e-mail from Some Publicist this morning: "Dallas International Fashion Week is announcing its postponement of its planned launch October 20 - 26, 2007 until a season next year." The event's promoter-producer, David Manning, is quoted: "It's clear a longer promotional period will better suit sour [sic] mission to drive tickets revenue [sic]." He continues: "Of course any ticket buyers will be fully refunded."

When we called the publicist in New York City to confirm, she didn't want us to use the word "canceled." Fine. She also said that one planned party will take place as scheduled: tomorrow night's "launch party" -- heh -- at One Arts Plaza, featuring Jaime Pressly and her J'aime Collection. Guess it would have looked bad to cancel -- sorry, postpone -- a fund-raiser for "the forgotten children of the world."

Otherwise, looks like there's no need for the both of you to get your panties in a wad this week. --Andrea Grimes

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
