Celebrity or Fashion Designer

This is a poster that I see everyday at work. Normally I pass it by without a second thought, however, today was different. I stopped in front of it and looked at it today… really looked at it. It made me realize that fashion designers are becoming more like celebrities rather than artists of fashion. Their faces are everywhere and they are becoming extremely important to the media. It also is ironic because very few famous designers are actually the designer for all of their products. Some use licensing, but many have designers under them that do the majority of the creative process. Many of these celebrity designers just finalize the decisions, without dealing heavily with the products themselves.
