Snark week in shoe biz

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -

DUKES OF MEL­ROSE Thurs­day, 9pm, Arena

THIS is an­other show for all the fash­ion and re­al­ity TV trag­ics out there.

If you love the likes of The Rachel Zoe Project and It’s A Brad, Brad World, this will suit you more than a per­fect-fit­ting pair of jeans.

It takes view­ers in­side Hol­ly­wood’s pre­miere vin­tage bou­tique, Decades. The store has be­come known for stock­ing the most ex­trav­a­gant and ex­pen­sive vin­tage pieces from some of the world’s most in­flu­en­tial de­sign­ers. And just as fa­mous as the de­sign­ers the store stocks are the clien­tele it serves. Cus­tomers in­clude ev­ery­one from A-list stars to top models and so­cialites all look­ing for their next red car­pet out­fit. The store is owned by the busi­ness-savvy Chris­tos Garki­nos and the flam­boy­ant fash­ion­ista Cameron Sil­ver, who are ev­ery bit as fas­ci­nat­ing as their clients and clothes.

This week’s episode sees the shop throw their famed an­nual shoe sale with all shoes dis­counted to just US$150. It at­tracts a queue down the block, but Sil­ver thinks it is cheap and tacky and tells cus­tomers as much. It’s awk­ward and nasty tele­vi­sion and just the kind that fans of the Real House­wives fran­chise will adore, filled with snarky re­marks and bitch­i­ness.
