Despite what you've heard, the two things can be synonymous. Jeremy Scott's Moschino collection was filled with plenty of food. From fast-food covered frocks to candy-bar couture, Scott, who is known for his eclectic, funky approach to fashion, definitely turned heads with his first collection for the brand. Just as interesting was Chanel's recent show in Paris, where the brand gave a new definition to "supermarket chic" by placing its runway show in a grocery store setting. "The whole Chanel thing was cool," according to Christie Griffiths, owner of Brightside Boutique & Art Studio, which has locations in Fells Point and Federal Hill. "I think they were trying to show it for the everyday girl. It was a fun thing that they did. Fashion shows are usually so repetitive. This was fun." Griffiths expects to see the supermarket trend trickle into mainstream fashion in the form of graphic T-shirts.
