Marc Jacobs has unearthed a set of show notes from one of his first fashion shows.

The designer took to Instagram on Wednesday (02Jan19) to post a photo of a series of scribbles he had written on a piece of paper from the Eden Roc hotel at Miami Beach, Florida while planning his spring 1987 show along with his creative collaborator and business partner Robert Duffy.

Along with the names of the models he wanted to cast, which included Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Bethann Hardison, Elle Macpherson and Gail Elliott, Jacobs had selected Maria de Schneider to do the make-up and Oribe Canales, who died suddenly at the age of 62 last month (Dec18), to take charge of the models’ hair.

“Whoa!!!! Completely blown away by this artefact of 1987 thanks to @longnguyennyc It was my program notes/credits from my Miami Beach inspired show (before South Beach had really fully developed). It took place in the (Onward) Kashiyama showroom on Seventh Avenue. Fun fact: It was my first show that Anna Wintour attended. She was then the Editor in Chief of HG (which was her new name for House and Garden),” he captioned the snap.

Jacobs also tagged his supermodel pals in the post and added hashtags such as “#humblebeginnings” and “#gratefulnothateful”.

However, the designer’s moment of nostalgia comes just days after it was announced that former members of grunge band Nirvana were suing him over the alleged theft of their smiley face logo.

In legal documents, lawyers claimed that the group, made up of late frontman Kurt Cobain, bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl, have owned the trademark to the design since 1992, and alleged that a similar logo in Jacobs’ re-released Bootleg Redux Grunge collection was a “blatant ripoff”. Jacobs is yet to comment on the lawsuit.

Naomi Campbell has shared a heartfelt tribute to late celebrity hairstylist Oribe Canales.

On Monday (17Dec18), a spokesperson announced that the Cuban-born hair guru had died at the age of 62. No cause of death was made public.

Accordingly, supermodel Campbell has led tributes, and in a statement to People.com, explained that her personal and professional relationship with Canales dated as far back as 1986, when he styled her for her first Vogue shoot.

“It’s devastating for everyone that loves him,” she said. “He was such a talent and such a force. Oribe is a chosen family member for me since I was 16 years old.”

Thankfully, the 48-year-old has fellow fashion icons Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington to turn to for support following the loss.

“(They both) called me,” Campbell added. “They’re my two chosen sisters. Whatever people want to think about us, we were always close and will always remain close and in each other’s lives.”

Campbell is one of a number of models and designers to honour the hairstylist’s memory.

“I will miss you Oribe,” Heidi Klum tweeted along with a playful image of Canales spraying her hair.

Emily Ratajkowski posted an image of herself posing with an updo he created, and captioned it, “Rest in Power, Oribe Canales. I am so grateful to have been able to work with you and know you.”

Cindy Crawford also remembered her old friend in an Instagram post, and shared an image of the pair which she captioned, “Oribe – you will be missed! Your incredible talent, your charm and good looks and just enough bad boy to keep us all laughing (sic)!”

While Donatella Versace described Canales as “the kindest creative genius and friend” and Irina Shayk praised the hairstylist’s “kindness, his words and encouragement”.
