In Milan?

The Burberry Prosum show was today and Freja didn't walk. Fashionologie has an interesting report up:
"According to rumors, last night, Gucci demanded all girls cast in their show fly into Milan, pronto. That means Burberry's usual all-star London lineup — Freja Beha Erichsen and Lily Donaldson among them — were already gone; Burberry did nab Jourdan Dunn and Lisanne De Jong, however."
We know that Freja is both a Burberry and Gucci favorite, walking in both shows countless times throughout her career. However, I suppose this means that she's more of a Gucci girl since she didn't show up at the Burberry show. Makes sense considering she's been a Gucci campaign girl many times while Burberry continues to stick with British faces.

Of course, Freja could have just skipped London altogether to get some much needed rest. She didn't walk in any of the week's other big shows: Julien MacDonald, Christopher Kane, Pringle of Scotland, Jaeger London (the last two being brands that she's done campaigns for in the past). Who knows? I guess we just wait and see until tomorrow if Freja shows up on the Gucci catwalk.....

It's a shame Burberry/Gucci are less than 24 hrs. apart. Why schedule two big shows in different countries back to back like that? I missed the major girls at Burberry. The biggest show of LFW should've had the biggest girls. I liked some of the girls who walked, Julia N., Jourdan D, Mirte M., but it wasn't the same. And, poor Nina. I hate seeing girls fall.:(

Looking forward to Milan! Hoping Freja has a great week!

Some lady on twitter said she was sitting next to Freja on a flight to Paris. Maybe she's shooting something?

^I don't think so. She was probably just on her way to Milan with a quick stop in Paris.

@ endia: I felt bad that some models didn't walk Burberry, but London also seemed to be lacking in big name models this season as compared to the past few seasons. Sad, because I have grown to love it...probably even more than nyfw.

@ anonymous posters above: Very interesting. Thanks for the info guys!

London fashion week was a bore. It's unfortunate that most of the top models chose to skip it. I was hoping to see Freja walk for Pringle of Scotland. :(
