Fashion News: Kate Moss, John Galliano and a lovely gown

Kate Moss' recent wedding makes up a spread in Vogue's September issue, which includes details about how her beautiful gown came to be. Her inspiration was the Great Gatsby, her designer (as we know) John Galliano. The two discussed ideas over the phone, then met  with "bags full of bits, and pulled tulle and sequins and veils and flowers out," Moss said. "And then we just kind of pinned things together, like the old days, you know?" [Vogue]

Meanwhile, Galliano calls designing the dress "creative rehab," after his firing by Dior in the midst of a scandal over allegations that he made anti-Semitic comments. [Vogue]

London label Issa -- a favorite of the Duchess of Cambridge -- is looking for someone to design a new print for its upcoming collection, a new model for the runway, and an intern. Those who have what it takes can apply at, a website launched to help newcomers get into the fashion business. [Telegraph]

Speaking of the Duchess -- as if she weren't thin enough (and photos of her seem to always send commenters into spasms of concern over whether she has an eating disorder) -- the magazine Grazia admits to photoshopping her waist to waspish proportions on its May 9 cover shot of her walk down the aisle.

Chanel is issuing a new version of the classic 1970s scent No. 19. Originally named in honor of Coco Chanel's Aug. 19 birthday, the new Chanel No. 19 Poudre retains the lightness of the original while adding crisp green notes and iris. [Racked] 

Accessories maker Botkier reportedly intends to send Sears a cease-and-desist letter contending that a handbag in the new Kardashian Kollection that debuted this week is a rip-off of the Trigger Clyde bag from Botkier's 2009 collection. [Fashionista]
