Schiffer misses the 'flair' of the 90s fashion industry

Supermodel Claudia Schiffer misses the flair of the 90s fashion industry and thinks that models these days have it tough due to celebrity competition.

Speaking to Marie Claire she explained, "There were a lot more personalities in the 90s – wonderfully creative, no boundaries, that Isabella Blow craziness. The flair of the 90s is missing now.

"The difference is that today it's very professional, people don't want to waste time and are always thinking about the budget. Back then, it was more theatrical, there was champagne everywhere, everyone hung out. On shoots, someone would open a bottle of red wine at lunch."

On the competition facing up and coming models these days she commented, "We dominated because it was all about fashion models then. Actors and singers weren't in campaigns or on the covers of fashion magazines. I do think girls are coming through, but there's so much more competition these days and so many more collections. A model can be successful for two seaeosns and then gone."
