in remembrance of heather bratton

The fashion world mourns the loss of one of its rising models, Heather Bratton (Women). She was killed in a car crash on the New Jersey turnpike on the way to Newark International Airport. The vehicle she was riding broke down in the center lane of the turnpike, was rear ended, caught fire, and trapped Heather inside.

In a world where American models are about as rare as straight men in fashion, Heather redefined beauty and showcased angles that haven't been witnessed recently. A self-confessed wallflower in high school, she had transformed into a poised, beautiful woman at the very young age of nineteen. This tragedy recalls Niki Taylor and Petra Nemcova, both of whom fortunately survived their ordeals.

We miss you.

On another sad note, Procter & Gamble has decided to close down Rochas. What a waste after its remarkable resurgence. What will Olivier Theyskens do next?
