Even though the nature of fashion is to move from trend to trend, some things have long remained constant: what was designed for the runway was not what was designed for the street; a fashion designer had a certain pedigree; and the customer came from a particular part of the world. All that is now changing, as the fashion industry reorients itself to a younger, non-Western shopper who's more entranced by a new sneaker than by a couture gown. This is no passing fad—these changes will affect old-line luxury conglomerates, fashion designers, the media that covers it all, and the retailers that sell it. Fashion and luxury are getting redesigned.
