Above and below are a trio of designs by Marc Jacobs for Fall/Winter 2008.

As expected Friday, nothing on Marc Jacobs’ runway fit any preconceived notion of silhouettes and proportion. Slouchy blousons and long over short and short over long designs will have others chattering and heading back to the drawing boards for weeks to come.

Meanwhile, the attention has moved on to London, where the runways are the most eccentric of them all. Sadly, some of the city’s best known designers have always chosen to show in more highly populated, media-blitzed shows in Paris and New York, but with coverage guaranteed pretty much anywhere these days, London’s fashion grande dame Vivienne Westwood is returning for her first show in nine years. Can’t wait to see that!

“Project Runway” left five designers standing this week, with two scheduled to be auf wiedersehen’d Feb. 13. So viewers taking Fashion Week’s “Project Runway” fashion show today just had to guess who made the final three and who were there to throw us off track.

Judging from the runway looks and the labor that went into the designs, I’d say Christian Siriano, Rami Kashou and Jillian Lewis were the ones who made it through to the two-part finale, Feb. 27 and March 5, when Victoria Beckham will be a guest judge.
