The show's financial backer, Aaron Powers is trying to smooth things over.
George Milton Julia's boyfriend, is stretching their relationship.
Julia's sister, Penny Harper is looking for credit for her work.

There's fashion critic, Timothy Holden with plenty to criticise.
Sam Jones the house fashion designer is under pressure.
Artistic director Philip St John is on a short fuse.
