Erdem Moralioglu has ruled out launching a high street collection.
The designer gave a public talk with Colin McDowell at the Royal College of Art (RCA) in London last night, as part of the Fashion Fringe Roadshow in which he said he will be working on his collections, rather than pieces for the high street.
"It's never been the right moment. If it works for some people, then that's wonderful - but it depends on where you're at. For me, it's really important to concentrate on your collection and your own work. Once you start looking at versions of your work, it can get a bit dangerous. One can do it really well and in an interesting way though," he said.
Erdem also played down his links to Dior, and was cagey about being touted as a possible successor for disgraced designer John Galliano: "Anything like that is a compliment. But you just have to concentrate on your job and what you're doing."
Jennifer Aniston insists claims she spends $8,000 a month on beauty regime are "greatly exaggerated."
The 43-year-old former Friends actress was reported to invest a massive $96,000 a year in looking good. According to website Shine, Jennifer splurges $900 a week on private yoga sessions, and subscribes to a $350 a week home delivery food service. On top of that, the report also claims she forks out $450 for a neck ointment by Euoko, and $450 on regular Tracie Martyn facials amongst numerous other expensive products and treatments.
But while she admits she loves a good beauty product as much as the next woman, she insists her regime costs her no where near as much.
"Although I am a sucker for an amazing moisturizer, love a great facial, have been using the same cleansing bar since I was a teenager and have always been a dedicated tooth-brusher, reports that I am spending eight thousand a month on a beauty regime are greatly exaggerated. By my tally, this month I'm in for about $200," she told People.
Haider Ackermann has fuelled speculation he is interested in the vacant role at Christian Dior by revealing his desire to work at an established fashion house.
The designer - who has his own eponymous label - has previously been linked with the French fashion house, which has been searching for a new creative director for almost a year following the sacking of John Galliano and now says there are only two couture brands he would love to work for.
"There are two houses I would be interested in. Two where I feel there is shared sensibility, and I could bring something else of myself to the house, which isn't expressed in my own line,"
Haider has also previously been linked to the creative director role at Chanel, and says he doesn't understand people who complain about the pressure which he comes with taking over at an established fashion house: "Look, let's be honest. You can't just blame the system. We are all responsible for our own lives. I find it difficult when people complain about the pressure. This is fashion, it's not surgery. It's a job; a job with a lot of dreams woven in."
Nicole Farhi claims celebrities are being paid tens of thousands of dollars to appear on the front row at catwalk runway shows. The designer has called the alleged system "unprofessional" and "stupid" because it results in more interest being paid to the stars attending such events rather than the clothes on display.
"It is so unprofessional. I have never paid a celebrity and I will never do it. It's stupid. What do they show you in the papers after a fashion show? Not the clothes, but the celebrities who are being paid to sit at the show."
Following her comments, the 65-year-old French-born designer is expecting to be snubbed by fellow designers, but she doesn't "give a s**t" because she feels so strongly about the issue: "They will all hate me for it. I don't give a s**t because I think it is abominable."
Karlie Kloss made her catwalk return during Paris Fashion Week yesterday.
The model - who skipped Milan, London and New York Fashion Week this year - took to the runway for Anthony Vaccarello, where she opened the show, and is set to also walk for Christian Dior, Lanvin and Jean Paul Gaultier.
According to Fashionista.com, Karlie had cancelled all Milan, London and New York Fashion Week appearances this year because she had planned to film a commercial in Japan but it fell through allowing her to take part in Paris Fashion Week. Karlie was joined on the runway by several other top names including Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik and Arizona Muse, while Kanye West was spotted in the front row.
The 19-year-old Chicago born model, however, admitted recently she was missing New York Fashion Week, tweeting, "No one is more bummed than me to be missing out on all of the#NYFW fun - sending all my love to NYC! Xx (sic)"

Christopher Kane has ruled himself out of taking over at Christian Dior.
The Scottish designer - who was one of a number of names pinned to the role formerly held by John Galliano - has revealed he has not been approached but is "flattered" people believe he could do the job.
"While it is incredibly flattering that I could be considered for a role at a house such as Dior at this stage in my career, I can confirm that I have not been approached. I am focused on developing my own label and my ongoing collaboration with Donatella Versace for Versus.''
Raf Simons is firm favorite to take on the highly-prized position at the French fashion house following his departure from Jil Sander, but as yet it has not been confirmed.
Rachel Zoe is launching two new top-secret categories for her clothing line in February. The celebrity stylist - who launched her eponymous label earlier this year - will be adding to the collection but won't reveal what it will be.
"I'd have to kill you if I told you," she said in a video. The range already included ready-to-wear, shoes and bags so it is thought she may branch out into beauty and accessories.
As well as launching her debut fashion range, Rachel - who has previously worked with the likes of Nicole Richie and Cameron Diaz - became a mother to son Skyler earlier this year and compared the collection to "giving birth."
"Being a designer was the thing that I always said, 'I'm never going to do this, because I'm too scared to do this.' All of sudden during my presentation this season, I was like 'Oh my god, why am I doing this, I'm too scared to do this. Then it was like, it was almost like giving birth. When it was over, I was like, 'This is the most exciting, most challenging adventure. This is new, and this is fun.'"
Jeffry Aronsson is believed to have left Emanuel Ungaro. The fashion house's chief executive officer (CEO) - who joined the company in June to "heal the bruises" of the label - has reportedly stopped commuting to Paris and is believed to have permanently returned to his investment and consulting firm Aronsson Group.
"Mr. Aronsson is still the acting CEO of Ungaro," Ungaro told WWD.
If the executive's departure is true, it is the latest in a string of high-profile exits from the fashion house. Giles Deacon became the sixth designer to leave in as many years when he quit in September after just two seasons. Before his exit, the company has seen Giambattista Valli, Vincent Darre, Peter Dundas, Esteban Cortazar and Estrella Archs work short stints for them since their founder retired in 2004.
Following his departure earlier this year, Giles said he was "proud" of what he had achieved at the French fashion house, but was keen to work ore with his Giles brand. He said, "I am very proud of the work that I - and my team - did at Ungaro, and it was a pleasure to work in Monsieur Ungaro's studio and with members of his actual atelier. I am going to concentrate on the global development of the Giles brand with some exciting one-off projects in the pipeline for next year - and I'm really excited about presenting the Giles Spring/Summer 2012 collection on Monday evening."
While he initially looked like a shoe-in for John Galilano's former job at Christian Dior, word around the fashion circles is that Bernard Arnault isn't too keen on shaking things up over at LVMH.
Other top candidates include Phoebe Philo and Riccardo Tisci; however, both seem keen to stay at Celine and Givenchy, respectively. Alexander Wang, Raf Simons, and Jason Wu are some rumored names being thrown into the ring, but no official word has been released on anyone just yet.
With Jacobs out of the running, the current popular opinion suggests that a post-rehab Galliano is the only one fit to hold the position. After all, both Manolo Blahnik and Franca Sozzani have expressed their desire to see him return, and Jean-Paul Gaultier has also stood behind the controversial former Dior creative director.
Galliano is currently still in rehab.

Jean-Paul Gaultier will launch an eyewear collection with close friend Alain Mikli.
The French designer has revealed the range - which will be released in February - will go on display at the Dallas Museum in the 'Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk' exhibit from today until February 12.
The 12 pairs of eyeglasses and eight sunglasses will retail for between $285 and $400. In August, Jean-Paul - famed for developing Madonna's Conical bra for her 1990 Blonde Ambition Tour - revealed plans to develop a "provocative" lingerie collection with Italian brand La Perla. He said the collaboration "was bound to happen," adding, "Lingerie is part of my DNA: I have always used it in my collections. With La Perla, I have found a perfect partner."
The designer added the collection will continue to enforce his strong view of female empowerment: "I would like to give women freedom to be who they are. I personally think women are the stronger sex; that they are more intelligent and much stronger than us men, and I always wanted to show a strong woman who seduces because she wants to."
