WWD Gathers Fashion Experts, Insiders for Samsung 837 Style Dimension Panels

Seen and heard: This New York Fashion Week at Samsung’s experiential hub, 837, WWD gathered top thought leaders, fashion designers and industry heavyweights to join in a series of in-depth and informed discussions on topics ranging from the role of social media for brand marketing to the evolution — and acceptance — of female executives within the landscape.

Bridget Foley and Narciso Rodriguez 
Patrick MacLeod

WWD executive fashion editor Bridget Foley and fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez
“To seduce someone with something that’s really, really great,” said Narciso Rodriguez, “I think that’s a great challenge for any designer.”
During the course of their discussion, Rodriguez revealed that he still feels like a rookie fashion designer in many senses. It’s this mentality that’s kept his work remarkably fresh, and his burnout apparently at bay.
And while this may be freeing, Rodriguez confirmed that remaining an independent designer is not without its challenges. “When you have something like September 11 or the 2008 downturn or retail partners going bankrupt, those are things that are really damaging to a company that isn’t funded by a giant conglomerate, where they just move billions of dollars into your account,” he said. “It’s tough but we’ve survived.

What’s in a Name? Experts Weigh In on Dream Renée Kardashian

 

Dream, the first name of the newborn daughter of Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian, is one of the new word names rewriting the book on baby names, says Pamela Redmond Satran of Nameberry.com.

Dream Renée Kardashian joins cousins North and Saint, the offspring of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who helped popularize the word name trend. A major reason parents choose word names is because they want the name’s meaning to be clear in modern-day English rather than hidden in an ancient language. Another appeal is that the name feels newly minted for this generation and is not laden with centuries of associations.

The baby name Dream is not as unusual as you may think: Nearly 100 baby girls — and eight boys — were named Dream in the U.S. in 2015. Another handful were named Dreama, Adream and Dreamer.

On the celebrity side, rapper The Game named his daughter California Dream Taylor. Sole and Ginuwine have a daughter named Dream Sarae Lumpkin. And basketball player Allen Iverson has a son named Dream Elijah.

Appropriate for a musician, the word dream is rooted in the Old English verb dremen, which means rejoice or play music, according to Etymonline. Dream can refer to dreaming while asleep but as a name may be more closely tied to a dream as a hope or wish for the future. Dream can also mean somebody or something that’s wonderful — as in, “She’s a dream to work with” — certainly a positive association for a name.

And the word may be most resonant for Americans from the line in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech, “I have a dream.”

Word names of all kinds have risen dramatically in popularity over the last decade. The U.S. Top 100 includes other inspirational word names such as Genesis, Serenity and Faith for girls, along with Angel for boys. Popular word names also encompass musical names such as Aria, place names such as Brooklyn and Savannah, day names like Autumn and color/nature names like Violet, Ruby and Hazel.

In this class you might also include occupational names such as Mason, the name of Kourtney Kardashian’s son, which has climbed all the way to No. 3, and Harper, in the girls’ Top 10 partially thanks to Victoria and David Beckham. Other occupational names in the Top 100 include Skylar, Taylor and Piper for girls; Tyler, Carter, Hunter, Parker, Cooper, Tyler and Ryder for boys.

The couple did nod to tradition in giving their newborn daughter the middle name Renée, also mom’s middle name.

What Wedding Experts Would Have Done Differently For Their Own Big Days

by Jillian Kramer, BRIDES

2015-06-11-1434039356-6527706-toastglassesonplatter_brides_HarryHartman_CNP.jpg

Every bride worries she’ll regret some wedding decisions — and it turns out, even the pros look back on their big days with some regrets. So we asked four wedding planners to share what they’d change about their weddings so that you won’t make the same mistakes!

“I wish we’d splurged on a really kick-ass photographer.”
Janice Carnevale, owner of Bellwether Events, tied the knot on April 1 and embraced the quirky date with her own inventive touches — red and lime-colored linens, argyle-patterned invitations, and a cake iced in chocolate frosting. And while she doesn’t regret her eclectic choices, she does wish she’d spent more on a photographer “and paid for an album up front,” she advises.

“I wish that I had not been chewing gum for the reception.”
Michele Velazquez, co-owner of pop-up wedding planning company The Wedding Bomb, wed in a chic off-white and purple affair in Los Angeles, where a highlight was “these amazing artichoke appetizers filled with garlic,” she says, “so I put gum in my mouth to have fresh breath. But in our wedding video, you can see me chomping away — and I shriek every time I see it!” Velazquez now warns brides to find ways other than chewing gum to freshen breath.

“We didn’t hire a videographer, and I still regret it to this day.”
Courtney Wolf, wedding planner and marketing director of Invision Events, says her blush-hued, formal wedding “was the absolute most amazing day of my life.” But because she and her then-fiancé bore the brunt of the bill for their big day, they made cuts when they questioned whether something was “worth it” — including a videographer. “While our photographer blew us away with the effortless and perfect capture of our day, there is nothing that can compare to hearing our vows or me giggle while I’m getting ready or my husband’s emotion as the church doors open and he sees me as his bride, all in real time,” she says. “I do wish I had that piece of the puzzle, even three years later.”

“I would not have had sparklers!”
Victoria Canada, owner of Victoria Canada Weddings and Events, held a festive affair that featured a Mariachi band and margaritas. The party was so much fun, she recalls, she didn’t want to leave. “I would have kept the bar open and kept dancing,” she says, “but we had sparklers — and our guests had them lit and we pretty much had to run! Now, I actually discourage brides from them.” One thing she doesn’t regret? Saying “no” to an open bar. “Our goal was to have a great honeymoon, and that meant having to make some concessions,” she explains. “So, we did not have an open bar — we had beer, wine and margaritas. I think an extra week on the Mediterranean was worth my friends not having a vodka tonic!”

How Relationship Experts Knew They Found ‘The One’

“When you know, you know.” That’s the conventional wisdom when it comes to figuring out if the person you’re dating is the person you’ll be with in the long, long term.

But when and how does that seemingly elusive feeling of assurance strike? We recently asked a group of married relationship experts to tell us about the moment they knew they had found The One. Below, authors, professors, therapists and other relationship professionals share their stories.

1. They never ran out of things to say.
“On our third date, we met in the late afternoon for drinks, then we saw a movie, followed by a long, leisurely dinner. Then we decided to walk. All night. First to a cafe in North Beach, then to a jazz bar, and then just up and down the San Francisco hills, until around 6 a.m. when we said goodnight at my front door. Not once did we get bored or run out of things to say. I knew then that 10, 20, 30 years out, we’d still be talking, laughing, keeping life fresh and interesting. And we are.” – Winifred Reilly, licensed marriage and family therapist and relationship blogger

2. What she lacked, he had in spades.
“I knew my husband was The One during our first real date, which was a trip to Miami since we lived in different cities at the time. He navigated us around in a rental car, which was impressive since I have no directional capacity at all. He also was very gentle when rubbing sunscreen on me, which I liked because I thought it meant he was kind and a caretaker. I was right!” – Dr. Samantha Rodman, psychologist and dating coach

3. The relationship felt totally, completely right.
“My wife and I met in high school, we broke up on graduation, but rekindled the relationship in our senior year of college. She had the opportunity to study in Europe, and I spontaneously decided to join her for a year in romantic Heidelberg. On the plane, my exhausted wife-to-be fell into a deep sleep. I looked over at her slumbering form, and I was hit by an overwhelming feeling of rightness -– that for once in my life, I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right person. In Germany, I learned the wonderful word for ‘significant other’ or ‘sweetheart’: Lebensgefährtin. It literally means a ‘fellow-traveler through life.’ And that’s what we’ve been to one another ever since.” – Dr. Karl Pillemer, author of 30 Lessons For Loving and professor of gerontology at Cornell

4. It was love at first sight — no doubt about it.
“I knew my husband was the one at first sight. I know that sounds crazy, but we were set up and had been talking on the phone for nearly a month. Each time we’d connect by telephone, we’d talk for hours. He knew so much about me before we ever met face-to-face, and before we left dinner that night, we both knew we’d never be with another person again.” – Fawn Weaver, author and founder of Happy Wives Club

5. He was a true gentleman.
“It was a cold night in November 1985 and we were double-dating at a Lebanese restaurant in Washington, D.C. He was NOT my date! I was wearing short sleeves and I must have been shivering because Chuck took off his sweater, a red and green chevron-patterned number, and gave it to me. I slipped it on and it was so soft and smelled so good, musky and manly. We looked at each other, he’s got these see-through blue eyes, and I thought, ‘Hmmm, this could be interesting…’ And it’s been interesting for 27 years.” – Iris Krasnow, author of The Secret Lives of Wives

6. She broke all the dating “rules” for him.
“Lou was bartending over the summer after my freshman year of college and his best friend, who I had dated, was the bouncer. Lou was different from any man I had dated. I can’t really explain what it was, but he complemented me in ways I hadn’t ever considered before. I knew it from the start. And because he wasn’t going to call me (bro code), I looked through the phone book and called everyone with his name until I found him. I don’t believe in rules when it comes to love, but if I did, I was sure willing to break any and all of them.” – Dr. Logan Levkoff, sexologist and author

7. Their chemistry was off the charts.
“I knew my husband was The One on date number four. The electricity wouldn’t stop. I swear, I got electric butterflies every time I would think of him. The PDA was getting a little ridiculous that night and I told him, ‘You’re the man of my dreams.’ He said, ‘Wow, that’s a lot to live up to.’ I was actually trying to NOT be in a relationship for a long time, but there was no denying this intense chemistry.” – Marina Sbrochi, author of Stop Looking for a Husband: Find the Love of Your Life

8. His success was hers too.
“When I whispered to her, ‘They let me in [to a psychotherapy graduate program]’ her face radiated joy. More than I did at the time, she understood what this could mean to me and to us. Up until that moment, the future of my career was vague. She knew that this possibility of me becoming a psychotherapist had my name written all over it. Her assurance made her the one for me.” – Dr. Jim Walkup, licensed marriage and family therapist

As the addictive “Serial” podcast heads into Episode 11, The Marshall Project asked a mixed panel of defenders and prosecutors to appraise the evidence so far. Did they endorse the conviction of Adnan Syed, who is serving a life sentence for the murder of his ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, in 1999? What evidence presented in Sarah Koenig’s artful weekly installments swayed them? As a verdict on Adnan Syed, this exercise is, of course, meaningless. Syed’s fate is a matter for the courts, where the case is still on appeal.

But our sampling demonstrates that how lawyers see a case depends on whether they play defense or offense. The prosecutors were more inclined than the defenders to pronounce Syed guilty. Some of that, one career prosecutor conceded, was a tendency to root for the team you play on. Some of it is a difference of sympathies between lawyers who spend many hours with the accused and lawyers who do not – who, on the contrary, spend many hours with the grieving families of the victims. The greatest distinction between the two camps, though, is the nature of the challenge. Prosecutors are obliged to prove guilt. Defenders only have to produce reasonable doubt. One of our defense lawyers said he believed Syed was guilty – but, like all the rest of the defenders we surveyed, he believed a better defense could have won an acquittal.

Here are excerpts from our interviews, condensed and edited for clarity. Some would only speak if their names were withheld, and all emphasized that they were speaking only for themselves.

Erica Zunkel, clinical instructor, University of Chicago’s Federal Criminal Justice Clinic

Verdict: Not guilty

Reason: Defense attorney didn’t do her job.

Explanation: The first few episodes, I listened for fun, not thinking too much about the legal aspects of the case. But that changed pretty quickly, and my defense attorney instincts kicked in. I found myself texting and calling my public defender friends, overwrought that the defense attorney didn’t even bother to interview a possible alibi witness. There’s no excuse for that. I found myself cringing as I was listening to the defense attorney cross examine Jay during trial. I’ve thought of playing that snippet to my clinic students as an example of how not to conduct a successful cross-examination. She made Jay look reasonable and rational and beat-up on, which is exactly the opposite of how you want to portray him. Because if the jury believes Jay, Adnan loses. Simple as that.

Given how compelling I think Adnan is, I’m really surprised that he didn’t take the stand. There are, of course, huge risks to taking the stand as a defendant, one of which is that the jury will think that Adnan has the burden of proving he’s innocent, but the jurors thought that in this case anyway (as happens in courtrooms around the country each and every day). So why not give the jurors a counter narrative to Jay’s, from a 17-year old kid who is steadfast in his innocence?

Sarah Lustbader, a public defender who works in the Bronx

Verdict: Not guilty

Reason: Adnan isn’t a psychopath.

Explanation: Unless there’s a side of him that no one has told Koenig about, the idea that he would become a psychopath for long enough to plot to strangle someone he cared about, carry out that plan, and deny it, but never show other signs of psychopathy before and never after is exceedingly unlikely. Further, Adnan is a smart guy, and this here is not a smart crime. None of that is dispositive, but to me it makes guilt unlikely.

Markus Kypreos, former prosecutor, Fort Worth, Texas

Verdict: Guilty

Reason: You don’t need to be a psychopath to commit murder.

Explanation: The more I listen to Adnan, the less I like him. This is absolutely someone who could have committed this crime. It’s very telling that the jury only took two hours. That means a lot. Fifteen years later, we don’t know how the evidence was presented — we can’t feel the witnesses out — but only taking two hours, I mean.

Here’s what else I know: There’s been no motive presented for anyone else but Adnan. You always look at motive. I want Adnan to be asked, if not you, who? Meanwhile, look at the WAY she was killed. She was strangled. Very personal. There was a relationship there. That’s why I don’t buy the whole “maybe a serial killer did it” angle. What people have to understand is that there are a lot of people who kill who are between “normal” and “psychopath.” A person can be capable of strangling someone in a moment of anger or whatever without being all the way at the level of a psychopath. People try to paint Adnan as this virtuous guy, but he could have done one bad thing. And I’ll say, if he’s so virtuous, why’s there such a lack of emotion on his part? In discussing the murder of someone you loved for which you’ve been unjustly imprisoned for decades, you’d get emotional.

I guess I’ve come to accept that [Koenig] is not a journalist; this is entertainment. She’s clearly on team Adnan, picking and choosing what went unfairly for him back in ’99… I mean, c’mon, we’ve got the Innocence Project on this thing.

Ryan Carlyle Kent, post-conviction attorney, Office of Capital Writs in Austin, Texas

Verdict: Not guilty

Reason: Lack of forensics.

Explanation: First, there’s a noticeable absence of inculpatory evidence — no DNA, no fingerprint or palm print of any significance, no video recording showing Mr. Syed in a compromising position. As the first episode suggests, events of minimal significance to us are not remembered well. Clearly, the strongest evidence against Mr. Syed is the testimony of his friend Jay. Jay is not, however, a disinterested party; in fact, given what he knows and admits to, he must have had some involvement with the murder or its cover-up. Without more — e.g., a confession, a clearer motive, forensic evidence — I would not be comfortable holding Mr. Syed criminally responsible.

Longtime New York prosecutor

Verdict: Guilty

Reason: That Nisha phone call, among other inconsistencies.

Explanation: It’s not a slam dunk, but so far I see a case for guilty. First, Adnan sounds to me like almost any other defendant I’ve heard. He has a convenient excuse for everything. One big lie — or accommodation — of Adnan: At first he said I don’t know Jay that well. He gave Jay his phone, he gave Jay his car, he hung out and smoked pot with him…. If you think about these things, what is the statistical possibility of all these things happening and it not being Adnan? The ex-girlfriend, the distancing himself from Jay. “Maybe I butt-dialed Nisha” – c’mon. How do you get around some of this stuff? [Editor’s note: The so-called “Nisha call” is a call that was made to one of Adnan’s friends, not Jay’s, at a time when Adnan said he didn’t have his phone. The prosecution claimed that the call proved Adnan was with his phone, and with Jay, at 3:32 p.m., contradicting Adnan’s timeline of events.]

The whole break-up scenario — that’s a dangerous point in time. That’s when we see domestic-violence homicides. That’s classic. There is some evidence that he was overly controlling of this girl — lots of phone calls, that’s a huge red flag in domestic violence homicides. Another thing, it’s very easy to kill somebody by strangling. It doesn’t take long. If you put pressure on the carotid artery, it does not take long to severely affect their brain function. You can almost kill somebody by mistake. So it could easily be a tussle that got out of control.

Jay’s credibility is all over the place, but he found the car. He obviously knew something. He gets some details mixed up, but these things are always Rashoman.

William Boggs, public defender, Louisiana

Verdict: Not guilty

Reason: The Nisha call is not a smoking gun.

Explanation: The state’s case is thin, really thin. And the so-called corroborating evidence, the phone records, isn’t great either. I have a theory about the Nisha call that I think is fairly simple but that Sarah hasn’t really offered (even though she’s so obsessed with that call): Jay has Adnan’s phone with him and gets a missed call on it. The missed call was from Nisha’s home phone, not Nisha’s cell — not enough people have pointed out that the “Nisha call” is to a home phone, not a cell. So Jay calls back Nisha’s home, and has a quick conversation with either Nisha or her parents. “Well, tell Adnan I called.” “Okay.” Not a long conversation. Not a conversation she would remember.

Fast forward many months, when the police finally talk to Nisha. They don’t get her outgoing call records. They simply ask: Do you remember having a conversation months ago in which Adnan talked to you? Maybe with another guy present? And Nisha remembers a phone call when Adnan and Jay had been together. But this is key: She distinctly remembers Adnan and Jay calling her from outside the porn video store, and Jay saying he was about to go to work. But Jay didn’t work at the porn video store until weeks after the murder.

In those three hours of preparing his statement before turning on the recording (which is a police practice that’s now totally out of bounds), they’re going over the call logs with Jay. And they point to the outgoing call to Nisha, and they say, “Nisha says she remembers this call. Is that how it happened?” And Jay says yes. And they have the Nisha call. It’s two different calls, but the prosecution, not necessarily intentionally, was able to conflate them.

Joseph Sieger, Brooklyn Defender Services

Verdict: Guilty, but not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Reason: Not enough evidence linking Adnan to the crime.

Explanation: My gut is that Adnan probably did it, albeit with a hell of a lot more involvement on Jay’s part than Jay has admitted to. That being said, no fucking way would I say Adnan is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. No way.

Jay led the cops to Hae’s car. That’s an objective fact. Therefore he was part of whatever it was that caused her death. We also know this: Of the 14 “pings” on the cell phone records, Jay got 10 of them wrong. He lied about everything before 6:00 that day. But he was not lying about where that cell phone was after 6:00. Those were the four that he got right. So maybe we can believe his story as to what happened after 6:00.

The only thing is that Adnan’s phone was inside Leakin Park. But they didn’t do any study of Hae’s body, so they don’t actually know when she was killed! So who cares if Adnan’s phone was in Leakin Park on that day? For all we know, Hae was still alive for days after.

Yet I still say that my gut feeling is Adnan did it. What reason would Jay have, really, to say Adnan was part of it? Why hasn’t Adnan even once exhibited incredible rage with being falsely accused of something so heinous? I don’t get that stuff. But beyond a reasonable doubt? No way.

A prosecutor in New York

Verdict: Guilty, but not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Reason: Memories are unreliable.

Explanation: Sarah is absolutely right to point out how terrible people are at remembering. We see this all the time as prosecutors. I say, “How long were you at the scene?” and the witness says, “A few minutes.” When I hear “a few minutes,” I know it could mean anywhere between 30 seconds and a half hour. That’s how far off people can be about things they claim to remember. And particularly timelines. It’s one of the things human beings are the worst at, remembering timelines from six weeks ago. So that’s why there’s definitely doubt here. That’s also why I think Sarah would have made a good trial lawyer – because she’s so adept at turning obscure information into a timeline, a narrative. Trials are boring. Good lawyers make stories out of them.

Lisa Kang, L.A. County public defender, Los Angeles, California

Verdict: Not guilty

Reason: The prosecution withheld important information.

Explanation: I think the thing about the criminal justice system that most people don’t understand is the awesome power that the prosecution wields. They can pick and choose which facts they want to present in order to fit the narrative that they’ve constructed. Detectives don’t have to record any interviews, and if they choose to record, it’s perfectly acceptable that they choose not to record certain portions (e.g. the beginning of both of Jay’s interviews, during which we have no idea what he was shown or told by the detectives). Although the prosecution is supposed to turn over any exculpatory evidence to the defense, they regulate themselves. [Defense lawyer] Christina Gutierrez was understandably shocked when she found out that the prosecutor in Adnan’s case provided a free attorney for Jay, because this information should have been turned over to the defense. The state was able to garner a first-degree murder conviction, a conviction of even the most egregious crime, based on the testimony of a single witness. It’s scary how much power they have.

Zelalem Bogale, deputy district attorney, Washoe County District Attorney’s Office,
Reno, Nevada

Verdict: Undecided

Explanation: As a prosecutor, I don’t think I would have brought up [Syed’s cultural and religious background] at all. He seemed to be an ordinary double-life American. I’m a first-generation American, as well…. Seven members of the jury were black. Did they really get him as a person? Living a double life — how he’s actually American, but has obligations culturally, but he’s not an old-world Muslim. I’m not sure they understood those cultural nuances of a first-generation American.

Asia McClean’s role in this is very significant and hasn’t been explored; well, to the extent that it has been explored it presents a problem for the prosecution’s case. She is a potentially strong alibi witness for him. On the other hand, one of the worst pieces of evidence for Adnan … he just doesn’t remember that day very well, and I’m a little disappointed in that for him. On a day when you get called by the cops, when your ex-girlfriend goes missing — you don’t remember much? You don’t call her? I’m a little troubled by that, that his memory is kind of selective on a day like that.

Usually, when there is someone like Jay involved who’s a potential co-defendant, the prosecutor will charge him first, then he’ll get a lawyer; a plea deal can be arranged. In this case, Jay hadn’t even been charged yet, and they set him up with a lawyer in advance. There’s a collusion that has a chance for impropriety: ‘you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.’ I would have tried to ferret out Jay a little more. I do feel like Jay knows who did it. I don’t know if Adnan knows. Maybe he truly doesn’t know who did it. But then there’s this little bit of me, maybe Adnan is the best liar of all time. As a colleague pointed out, Adnan is used to this [lying]. He was hiding from his parents. He always hides. He’s good at disguising and misdirecting, because he had to do this his whole life. Does that mean that he’s using these skills to hide a murder? That’s a big leap.

The Key To A Successful Marriage Is Make-Up Sex, Experts Say

“Kiss and make-up” are four words that may be the key to marital happiness, or so say two relationship experts who believe make-up sex is vital to helping couples work out their problems.

In a recent HuffPost Live segment, Trisha and Justin Davis, the authors of “Beyond Ordinary: When A Good Marriage Just Isn’t Good Enough,” told host Mike Sacks that a romp between the sheets can help spouses move beyond marital spats.

“The term make-up sex, people think it’s just a term. Make-up sex is an actual physiological thing,” Trisha said. “When you feel known, where you feel like you’re on the same page, it makes that moment when you’re together all the more special.”

Her husband agreed, adding, “You’re never gonna agree with someone one-hundred percent of the time, but you can be for that person one-hundred percent of the time.”
