Marc Jacobs created a collection full of accessories for the Louis Vuitton fall 2009:
Lovely handbags, exciting shoes, bejeweled satin leggings, necklaces modeled after paper garlands, stunned gloves mixed with ladylike pearls of all sizes and even bunny ears for playful ladies.
And of course the gilded monogram, the protagonist of every collection.

In the spirit of saving money, Halston presented its fall 2009 collection in a music video instead of on the runway.
The video stars Dree Hemingway, a ballerina and granddaughter of the writer Ernest Hemingway, running through a city, wearing a yellow Halston dress and heels, and passing by other Halston-wearing women.
The change in format was not due to economic strain, Bonnie Takhar, CEO of Halston maintained — “It was something we were planning since September, before the world fell apart.”
But it has worked out with the economy in mind: “A lot of people’s budgets will be cut and many won’t be traveling to see the shows, and this is a way to be inclusive.”
