Maybe the economy has hit hard and designers are cutting back on runway-outfits-only because they hang and decay after a runway show and Lady Gaga cannot afford to be the only customer. Or maybe designers are thinking twice and focusing on what will sell after a fashion show. I have noticed an interesting trend in recent runway shows and designers are doing away with the crazy and bringing outfits that you see Celebs wearing a day after a fashion show. It is nice that certain outfits aren't only for the runway or for the models. They are wearable for all as long as you can afford them and adjust them.
