If you didn’t already have tons of totally rational jealousy over Style Rookie blogger Tavi Gevinson‘s Rodarte friendship and fashion week access, here’s another bit for you: The 13-year-old will be the guest of honor next week at the Comme des Garçons party in Tokyo. [WWD]

Giles Deacon will keep his show in Paris. The London designer jumped to the City of Light for the Spring 2010 shows after winning the ANDAM award.

I work in London, employ people here, but I need to look at the bigger picture.” [Vogue UK]
