What could be hurting this dog’s soul? A rusty hydrant? An empty food bowl? We may never know.

White Expands Despite Uncertainty

MILAN — Contemporary women’s fashion and accessories trade show White recorded a 4 percent increase in international buyers and a 14 percent rise in visitors overall, despite an uncertain economic outlook for the year.
White, which closed its three-day run on Feb. 27, hosted 511 companies in total, more than double the brands that showcased men’s and women’s collections in January. Of the 511 brands on show, 145 were from abroad.
“We are trying to make White ever more international and contemporary. To do that, we scout brands like these all over the world,” said founder and organizer Massimiliano Bizzi.
The special areas at the show highlighted White’s focus on turning the fair into a more international event. The show hosted talents from Kazakhstan, Portugal and Belgium. White’s guest label the Situationist was from the country of Georgia.
Irakli Rusadze, the 25-year-old founder of the Situationist label, unfurled a collection marked by a sophisticated sartorial flair and a distinct Eastern European underground feel. A self-taught creative, Rusadze learned to make his own patterns at age 13. Most of the collection that was on show was crafted inside his home. Rusadze was discovered by White organizers at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Tbilisi in 2016.

CFDA Stays Positive Despite Loss of Amazon Sponsorship

New York Fashion Week: Men’s may have wrapped up its most successful edition to date last week but it’s already facing a hurdle for next season: Amazon Fashion, which has been the principal sponsor since the shows started two years ago, has ended its association.
The decision comes even though the web giant is making an evermore aggressive push into fashion, and views it as one of its fastest-growing categories.
Despite Amazon’s move, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, organizers of the shows, is putting a positive spin on things, pointing to the ongoing commitment of at least two of the other sponsors — Cadillac and men’s grooming brand Axe.
“This season of NYFW: Men’s was a creative and commercial success,” the CFDA said in a statement to WWD. “We look forward to the next season taking place July 10 to 13. NYFW: Men’s continues to thrive because of the ongoing commitment of partners such as Cadillac and Axe.”
Samsung is also a sponsor and its participation will continue, said Mark Beckham, business director of Fashion Week for CFDA.
Beckman stressed that even though Amazon’s two-year contract with the men’s shows has ended, the company continues to work with the organization on other projects. He also

Bob Dylan Honored At Nobel Prize Banquet Despite Absence

The times, they are a changin’.

When word of Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize triumph caught wind, the literary world broke into heated, divisive debate. Does a songwriter deserve the recognition ― and money ― typically reserved for poets and novelists?

Just as dissenters began to accept the unexpected choice, Dylan stirred the pot. He declined to comment on ― or even accept ― the prize until two weeks after its announcement. Then, last month, the Swedish Academy announced that he would not attend the ceremony, “due to pre-existing commitments.”

The Academy noted in the same announcement that past winners — including writer Doris Lessing — have been unable to claim their prize at the ceremony.

So, diehard Dylan fans had no speech-in-song-form to anticipate, at least not one sung by Dylan himself. Dylan said he would write a “speech of thanks” to be presented at the banquet. Instead, Professor Horace Engdahl, a Swedish literary historian and critic, presented the award and delivered his own remarks.

“By means of his oeuvre, Bob Dylan has changed our idea of what poetry can be and how it can work,” Engdahl said. [You can read a full transcript of the speech here.]

Patti Smith attended the ceremony, and performed a cover of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” as tribute to Dylan. Smith was asked to perform before Dylan’s win was announced; she’d planned to play one of her own songs, but switched gears when Dylan, who influenced her own work, was awarded the prize.

“I have been following him since I was a teenager, half a century to be exact,” Smith said in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Smith stumbled at one point during the performance, forgetting the lyric: “I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin’.” The singer apologized, explaining that she was nervous, and finished out the song. 

Perhaps one day, Smith will attend under different circumstances, as a musician-turned-literary influencer herself. For now, though, she sings Dylan’s words, chillingly apt for America’s current political climate. 

“I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,” she sang, highlighting the importance of words that can carry weight, and inspire change.
