Trolling for Big Fashion and Beauty Finds

QVC and HSN are seeking the next big thing in fashion and beauty.
The multichannel retailers, both part of the Qurate Retail Group, will stage “The Big Find” contest to discover “the next big brands” in beauty, fashion, accessories and jewelry. From June 13 to July 12, entrepreneurs can submit a video entry presenting their products and telling the story behind their brand.
“The Big Find is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for entrepreneurs to share their stories with an audience of millions across our QVC and HSN platforms,” said Mary Campbell, chief merchandising officer, Qurate Retail Group, and chief commerce officer, QVC U.S. “We’re looking for entrepreneurs who are passionate about their products, have great stories to tell, and are engaging storytellers. This initiative is part of our ongoing commitment to bring our customers more discoveries while increasing our product differentiation.”
QVC and HSN have launched several successful entrepreneur-driven brands like IT Cosmetics, Philosophy, BareMinerals, Spanx and Diane Gilman. QVC and HSN sell products via home shopping and web sites.
Merchandisers from QVC and HSN will review all applications and invite selected brands to a round of in-person pitch panels in August in West Chester, Pa., and St. Petersburg, Fla., where QVC and HSN are

New York Fashion Week: Men’s Hanging on by a Thread

New York Fashion Week: Men’s is on life support.
Less than three weeks until the start of the men’s spring runway season, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has finally released its calendar — and it’s not pretty.
There are fewer than 20 men’s designers showing and half are with Agentry PR’s New York Men’s Day. Absent from the calendar are some designers who have been active supporters of the men’s shows since they were launched four years ago, including Todd Snyder, Robert Geller, Ovadia New York, Carlos Campos and Bode.
Instead, the calendar kicks off on June 3 with Agentry’s presentations of small and emerging designers only. The following day, N.Hoolywood will show at 6 p.m., followed by Frere at 7 p.m. The final day on June 5 will see presentations from Hecho, Freemans Sporting Club, Untitled Collective, Dyne and Linder, as well as shows from Private Policy, NIHL and Grungy Gentleman.
The reasons for the lack of participation are several. First, this marks the first time the men’s shows have moved from July to June to coincide with women’s resort. That timing is early for a lot of brands since the men’s market in New York is generally in mid- to

Bicester Village Celebrates Ethical Indian Fashion With Latest Pop-up

LONDON — Bicester Village is highlighting creativity, craftsmanship and ethical fashion for its latest pop-up, Celebrating India. Opening Friday and running until May 29, the pop-up not only showcases fashion labels from Manish Arora and Behno, but jewelry and lifestyle products, too.
The boutique has been overseen by Sujata Assomull, contributing editor of Vogue India, who said she wanted to “give a taste of everything that is designed in India,” from fashion and home to jewelry and shawls, the staples of Indian fashion.
“That was really important to us because India has such a vast repertoire. We also wanted to show that Indian fashion is in fact very global, it’s not costume-y and just saris. Indian fashion has really progressed,” said Assomull.
Designers echoed that sentiment.
“What I’m thrilled about is finally the recognition of the creativity of the designers in India, which is so filled with imagination that draws from something so traditional but is also really relevant to a global audience,” she said.
Shivam Punjya, founder of Behno, is also excited to show a different side of Indian fashion. “People don’t necessarily equate Indian fashion with minimalism. We’re a country that’s so known for its intricate beadwork, and for me it’s how I

Pratt Students Help Honor Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond at Annual Fashion Show

NEW YORK — Pratt showcased the work of 17 designers Thursday night at Spring Studios, and honored Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond with the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award.
In an interview Friday, Moss said he hoped students would remember that “the process is supposed to be long and intense, and if they stay the course they will eventually reach the goal and the purpose that was assigned to them by the universe. As artists, we go through the ebbs and flows and sometimes we don’t survive them. I just want them to know that at some point it does get better.”
Jean-Raymond received the award from his mentor Dapper Dan, who can appreciate that sentiment. Over the past four years, the two men have had many conversations and “Sunday talks,” Jean-Raymond said, adding that Dan has always been someone who he could count on pre-Gucci. “We navigated through different fashion industries, but at the end, we ended up in the same place,” Jean-Raymond said.
In addition to researching his next collection for his show in September, the designer said he is working on a signature shoe for Reebok. With his contract with Reebok scheduled to run out this year, the designer said he is

FIT Students Make Strong Statements in 2019 Future of Fashion Show

NEW YORK — Protection from both the elements and the news of the day was how one judge described many of the looks that paraded down the runway at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s 2019 Future of Fashion Runway show.
The show, held Thursday night at FIT, showcased some 99 looks from this year’s students graduating from the school’s Fashion Design BFA program.
In addition to featuring knitwear, sportswear, intimate apparel, special occasion and children’s wear on the runway, this year FIT introduced a Street Style and Athletics Capsule Collection that was presented at the end of the show.
The show, professionally produced by Jack Rich, is supported by a $ 2 million, multiyear gift from FIT alumnus Calvin Klein through the Calvin Klein Family Foundation, as well as the company he founded, Calvin Klein Inc. The show was also supported by Brother International Corp., which supplied FIT with more than $ 100,000 worth of sewing, embroidery and electronic cutting machine products.
The presentation was chockablock with craftsmanship and embellishments, including a chunky handknit coat; a hand-printed bomber jacket; a reflective puffer jacket; a “spaceman” sweater, and a gray industrial felt dress. Other looks were a denim patchwork handknit coat; a black shearling bomber with parachute straps;

Agentry to Open New York Fashion Week: Men’s Again

Agentry PR is pivoting.
The organizer of New York Men’s Day, a showcase for emerging designers, will once again open the men’s spring calendar, working in tandem with the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
The CFDA shifted the men’s dates to June 3 to 5 this season to coincide with the women’s resort calendar. This means the New York-based men’s shows will take place ahead of the men’s shows in London, Florence, Milan and Paris.
Agentry had considered sticking with the former July dates to give the designers more time to prepare their collections and align with the New York men’s trade shows, but opted to stick with CFDA instead.
But there are other changes: New York Men’s Day will now be held at Daylight Studios & Location 05, next to the newly opened Hudson Yards complex on the West Side of Manhattan. For the past few seasons, the shows had been held at Dune Studios in the financial district.
New York Men’s Day will feature presentations from nine designers, down from 12 in prior iterations. Five will be held over a two-hour period in the morning and four in the afternoon.
But the event will also feature an All Stars Showcase where previous Men’s

Dolly Parton Signs Global Licensing Deal With IMG to Develop Fashion, Accessories and Home

HELLO DOLLY: Considering the vastness of Dolly Parton’s business ventures, the fact that IMG is now her first exclusive global licensing representative is an eye-opener.
The eight-time Grammy winner, who has been a client in North America of IMG’s partner company WME since last year, plans to delve into fashion, jewelry, accessories and home goods through the new deal. The multiyear pact is set up to help the country music star develop a lifestyle brand. But the truth is, she already is that and more. Gucci’s Alessandro Michele designed a sleeveless jean jacket emblazoned with her name and image on the back for the luxury label’s spring 2019 collection.
Aside from knowing how to make a statement on stage — wigs, sequins, bright colors and body-accentuating silhouettes — Parton also grasps what it takes to execute those ensembles. She and her creative director and wardrobe designer Steve Summers have reportedly been known to create about 300 outfits each year — down to every shoe and accessories.
Beyond her 1.8 million Instagram followers, Parton presents to IMG a built-in fan base. Five years ago, she passed the 100-million mark for records sold, and Parton continues to churn out country music, books and all kinds

Fashion Re-told, Harrods’ Charity Pop-up, Is Bigger and Bolder Than Ever

POP, SHOP AND DROP: Harrods is going all out the second time around with its charity pop-up, Fashion Re-told, in partnership with NSPCC, a charity that aims to prevent child abuse. The pop-up will run from May 2 to June 2.
Located on Marylebone High Street in a retail space donated by the area’s big property owner, the Howard de Walden Estate, the shop hopes to drive even more sales given the high footfall on the street and the surrounding shops. Last year, Fashion Re-told raised 110,000 pounds.
Harrods is also hoping to change customers’ perception of pre-worn clothes and champion sustainability. “Luxury consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the impact of fast fashion, turning to shopping vintage and sustainable pieces or buying pieces from social enterprise brands. Fashion Re-told speaks to all three of these new ways of shopping,” said a spokesperson from Harrods during a preview of the shop on Wednesday.
The pre-loved selection consists mainly of pieces by Stella McCartney, Chloé, Missoni, Calvin Klein and Balmain while an expanded selection of men’s wear and children’s wear sits toward the back of the shop.

How Fashion and Beauty Brands Are Giving Back for Earth Day 2019

Sustainability is arguably the most important issue today in fashion and beauty.
More than just a trend or fad, consumers — especially Generation Z and Millennials — now expect sustainability as a core element in the fashion and beauty brands they shop from, analyzing everything down to the ingredients, packaging and manufacturing process.
Brands have taken notice, launching company-wide initiatives to better their environmental impact and encourage their customers to do the same. Take Adidas, who recently launched its Futurecraft.Loop sneaker, which is made from sustainable materials and can be repurposed into a new pair of shoes after they’ve been worn down. On the beauty side, clean beauty brand, Youth to the People, is trying to encourage responsible beauty consumption by offering a larger size of its Kale + Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Cleanser, so that customers don’t have to go through multiple plastic bottles.
From campaigns pushing sustainability to brands giving back to environmentally focused charities, read on to see how 16 fashion and beauty brands are giving back for Earth Day 2019.

The North Face Finds Its Inner Fashion

Tim Bantle, global general manager of The North Face, described the brand’s transformation from a collection of technical clothing and gear for serious explorers to a label that’s in-demand in the fashion world and collaborating with Supreme, Junya Watanabe and Sacai.
Bantle began by showing The North Face rock, which appears on all of its products, “at the end of Yosemite Valley, there’s this beautiful, monolithic rock,” he said. “It captures our historical essence.”
Bantle is a climber who spent 12 years at Patagonia, and prior to that, worked in guiding and retail. Showing a photo of a frozen tundra, he said, “This is where the most elite climbers in the world go — to the middle of Antarctica to do new climbs.”
Likening The North Face to NASA, but for earthbound exploration, Bantle said, “We enable people to go there and do that. It’s given rise to our most important and iconic products. Those products are part of an Expedition System launched in the Nineties.…We developed these products basically to climb Mount Everest.
“These products basically have a place in our archive and have a cult following around the world,” Bantle added. “The most important iconic products include the Denali jacket Base Camp

Fashion Illustrator Richard Haines to Debut Show That Encapsulates His Still-budding Career

IT ALL LINES UP: Fashion illustrator Richard Haines is gearing up for the April 18 opening of his show at the Daniel Cooney gallery.
About 20 or so pieces will be displayed in the gallery, including the work of Antonio Lopez; Christian Bérard; Paul Cadmus, an artist from the Thirties and Forties who was known simply as “Eric,” and other illustrators who influenced Haines. That combination led to the exhibition’s name, “The History of Beauty,” which is really telling a bigger story about fashion and illustration. The end result is not only what it means to Haines, but what it was, and what it is, he said. “I moved to New York in the Seventies, thinking I was hoping to be an illustrator. It was really just a dying field so I spent most of my career designing clothes. Then I started a blog of illustration 10 years ago and it just took off. With social media, there is so much more image with everything that illustration is really relevant again,” Haines said. “If I said to someone 10 years ago, ‘I want to become a fashion illustrator,’ they would have said, ‘That’s insane. There’s no work.”’

Grailed Founder on Future of the Men’s Fashion ‘Movement’

Men’s fashion has changed a lot in the past decade, and Arun Gupta sees it changing still.
Led by a young male consumer obsessed with streetwear, a new interest in fashion has led the popular success of sites like Grailed, which Gupta founded in 2013 as a marketplace and community platform for “super enthusiasts,” like himself. But already the culture is moving beyond streetwear.
“The men’s clothing movement, it being acceptable for men to care more about the clothes they wear, has been building for the past 10 years,” Gupta said. “But streetwear is the last phase of it.”
Already on Grailed, he said the inventory is about evenly split between streetwear and fashion, possibly a sign that the realm is cooling off a bit. And then there’s the split between the two types of fashion consumers Gupta is seeing.
“One is the consumer who buys to wear it, then there’s the consumer buying to flip it,” Gupta said. “It’s very prevalent in sneakers and now very prevalent in streetwear and it’s pretty unique to the ecosystem.”
He compared the level of resale with a brand like Celine, where new items have been slow to appear on Grailed and a brand like Supreme, which shows

‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ to Offer Many Interpretations at the Met’s Costume Institute

FASHION CAMP: The opening of “Camp: Notes on Fashion” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute is a month away, but the exhibition catalogue pictures what’s to come.
Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu curator in charge of The Costume Institute, has enlisted the help of associate curator Karen van Godtsenhoven and assistant curator Amanda Garfinkel for the double-sided expansive tome. Opening the icy pink book cover presents two volumes, each encased in a pale green with a gold border. With a forward by the Met’s director Max Hollein, an introduction by Fabio Cleto and “Isherwoodian Camps” and “Sontagian Camps” (inspired by Christopher Isherwood and Susan Sontag), there is a lot to consider. One of Sontag’s deductions reads, “As a taste in persons, Camp responds particularly to the markedly attenuated and to the strongly exaggerated.”
There is also “Camp The Beau Ideal,” “Camp Verb,” “Camp Adjective” and “Camp Noun.” Even Gucci, the spring show’s sponsor, sends catalogue readers on their way with a statement on page one. There, a quote from Sontag’s seminal essay that provided the inspiration for the exhibition is spelled out: “The essence of camp is its love of the unnatural; of artifice and exaggeration.”

Sergio Garcia rakes away tap-in before Matt Kuchar can give it to him, loses hole in brutal fashion

At the par-3 seventh hole, trailing Kuchar 1 down, Garcia had a seven-foot par putt left to win the hole after Kuchar was in for bogey. Garcia didn't make a great stroke, and his putt missed on the left side, coming to rest an inch (maybe even less) from the cup. We've seen guys not give short putts on Saturday due to the windy conditions, understandable given the fact that when there is still meat left on the bone, the wind can play a huge factor.

What Is ‘Modest Fashion’ and Why Is It Spreading?

When the topic of “modest clothing” comes up, images of Middle Eastern women in long robes emerge. And while that remains true, the trend of modest clothing is spreading west.
According to data analytics firm Edited, the demand for modest fashion “is expanding outside of the UAE and seeing growth in the western world with a 15 percent increase since 2017.”
In a report written by Charlotte Yau with research and data by Edited market analyst Kayla Marci, the firm noted that “modest clothing” receives about 8,000 Google searches each month in the U.S. “And religion isn’t the only reason women are opting to cover up,” the researchers said. “For some, it’s a personal preference; they find modesty empowering. With the #MeToo movement, women are dressing for themselves than for the male gaze. While the majority of customers are based in the Middle East, demand is growing in the U.S. and U.K.”
Yai and Marci noted that in the U.S. luxury market “there was a 50 percent [year-over-year] increase of long-sleeve blouses with a high neckline” and the midi shape “also makes up 53 percent of total skirt assortment.”
“So who’s wearing modestly?” the researchers said. “Western women in the U.S. make up 36

Spoofing Fashion, the Ken Walker Way

“If someone tells me I have good taste, I’m insulted. I think of good taste as joining the crowd,” said Kenneth Walker.
An artist-turned-architect, store designer and product developer, Walker is the planning and zoning commissioner in Palm Beach, Fla., where he’s opening an exhibit of his artwork, called “Fashionista,” at the Fritz Gallery, 211 Royal Poinciana Way, Wednesday though April 1. “This is my spoof on good taste,” said Walker. “Fashionista is the right word because this place is so fashion-conscious. Everyone here wears stuff with logos.”
Walker takes a mixed-media approach. In one piece, there’s a giant armoire with its doors swung open and logos from Gucci, Chanel and YSL and other brands dangling off hangers. In another piece, they’re dangling from a clothesline, and then there’s a washing machine on a spin cycle tossing the logos.
In his eclectic career, Walker designed stores operated by Burdines, Galeries Lafayette, Gap Inc., Limited and Saks Fifth Avenue, until he sold the firm in 1985. Walker was part of the Sixties Pop Art crowd hanging out at the Andy Warhol Factory space before shifting to architecture. He considers “Fashionista” a “fun reentry” into the art world, this time getting into the budding Palm

Rachel Roy Talks Consumers’ Role in Ethical Fashion, White House Chat About Child Labor Issues

A week after discussing child labor with first lady Melania Trump and Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi, Rachel Roy wants to keep the conversation going in the fashion industry.
Roy, a U.N. Women-appointed Champion for Innovation and Change, continues to help organize screenings and talks about the documentary “The Price of Free” that highlights Satyarthi’s crusade to end child slavery. Last week the pair joined human rights activist Kerry Kennedy for one at The New School’s Parsons School of Design. Three more screenings are planned in the next few months including one at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit.
Worldwide, 218 million children between the ages of five and 17 are employed including 152 million who are victims of child labor, according to the United Nations. Of those who are forced to work, nearly half of them — 73 million — work in hazardous child labor conditions.

The Yue-Sai Kan China Beauty Charity Fund has teamed with WeDesign Group Inc. to broaden the fund’s executive education in sustainable fashion program. While the program is geared for executives who work at Chinese companies that offer fashion, beauty and lifestyle products and services, it is free to anyone who is interested.
There will be an assortment of speakers tackling the enhanced curriculum. Naadam’s Matt Scanlan will address “Sustainable Business Models,” Timo Rissanen, associate dean of the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons School of Design, will explore “A Better Sustainable Future” and “The Caring Economy” author Toby Usnik will discuss “Corporate Social Responsibility.” Created in 2017, the CBCF Executive Education in Sustainable Fashion program is made possible through monies raised through the China Fashion Gala. This year’s edition will honor Jason Wu and will be held on May 1 at The Plaza hotel in New York.
The enhanced curriculum, developed by WeDesign, is designed to give participants the base knowledge and tools needed to adopt environmentally friendly business practices. Launched in 2017, the CBCF Executive Education in

Byredo Toasts Collection During Paris Fashion Week

Ben Gorham brought together Byredo’s trendy community during Paris Fashion Week, from Off-White designer Virgil Abloh to Anja Rubik, Aymeline Valade and influencers Pernille Teisbaek and Caroline Daur.
The occasion was Gorham’s accessories collection for the label, which dabbles in beauty and leather goods.
“I’m based in Sweden, so this is the right occasion to bring everyone together and connect with our community,” said the designer.
But despite his cult following, Gorham is committed to going against the fashion current and taking it slow.
For fall, he presented a small, focused accessories collection where he reworked the brand’s popular Seema bag using embroideries and hand-painted techniques.

His inspiration was the art of bird-watching, which he was drawn to for its peaceful, community-based nature. He loosely translated this into bags in bright colors and hand-painted inkblots, that reflected the “perfect symmetry of birds.”
A black version featuring neon blue inkblots stood out.
“This style has quickly become our iconic bag, maybe because it has a very strong silhouette — without branding or without hard wear, it still became quickly recognizable. So I felt like I should keep exploring different iterations of this bag and use it as a canvas,” said Gorham. “I’m quite slow, but

Swarovski, CFDA Part Ways for Fashion Awards

The CFDA Fashion Awards and Swarovski are parting ways after a 17-year run.
The two organizations won’t be partnering on the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards, that takes place June 3. Swarovski has been the main sponsor of the industry event.
“After an incredible 17-year partnership on the CFDA Fashion Awards, the CFDA and Swarovski have decided to shift the scope of the relationship and work on other programs to support American fashion. We appreciate Swarovski’s tremendous support of American fashion and look forward to our continued work to support the fashion industry,” said Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the CFDA.

Swarovski looks forward to continued support of the next generation of American talent through our diverse range of fashion support programs.”

Chainmail Is a Trend Happening at Paris Fashion Week

As many stay tuned to Paris Fashion Week, an unlikely fashion trend has popped up among the Parisian street-style set: chainmail.
The 12th-century armor, originally a mesh made up of metal rings to protect the head and body, has been reimagined by many Paris showgoers, who are wearing the style in silver, gold and black as clothing, headwear and handbags.
Giving a nod to the medieval chainmail style, two showgoers were seen wearing the style as headwear, one with a black chain-link headpiece worn over a metallic silver headscarf and another wearing a silver chain-link headpiece with a matching handbag.

Others went with more of a disco theme. Designer Michelle Elie wore a silver metallic sequined dress with a matching bag, while another paired a metallic gold chain-link top with a matching gold sequined skirt.

Over the decades, the style has been a runway staple, most notably by Paco Rabanne, who made it his signature style in the Sixties. Most recently, the look was interpreted for fall by designers including Christian Siriano, who gave models ponytails tied together with links of chainmail; Area, which accented clothing with colorful

Margaret Hayes, President and CEO of Fashion Group International, Dies at 79

Margaret Hayes, president and chief executive officer of Fashion Group international, died Thursday of complications due to breast cancer.  She was 79.
Hayes has been suffering from breast cancer for the past several years.
Hayes joined FGI in 1994 as president.
In her current role, she oversaw such key programs as the group’s annual Night of Stars gala, a symposium series and a ready-to-wear trend forecast.
Earlier in her career, Hayes was a top merchant at Saks Fifth Avenue. From 1981 to March 1993, Hayes served as senior vice president and general merchandise manager at Saks. She had been a director of Movado Group, Inc. since September, 1993. She also served as a director of International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. from 1993 to May 1, 2012.
Hayes was among the honorees in 2017 at the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation’s Hamptons Happening fund-raiser. That honor personally hit home for the fashion executive. Hayes, a supporter of many cancer research initiatives, said at the time, “As a cancer survivor myself, cancer research is not only philosophically critical, but has been vital to me in the course of my own life.”
In 2013, Hayes was also honored by K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, which is now known as Delivering Good.

Retailers Weigh In on the Pros and Cons of Men’s Fashion Week

Men’s wear retailers had a choice to make this week: stay in New York for the men’s runway shows or jump a flight to Las Vegas for the trade shows.
As reported, both events overlap this season; an unfortunate shift in dates by Project to a week earlier forced merchants and vendors to choose between the two.
NYFW: Men’s will run Feb. 4 to 6 in New York City — the start of the larger 10-day New York Fashion Week — while Project, Liberty Fairs and Agenda will run Feb. 5 to 7 in Las Vegas.
The men’s part of the show calendar has had trouble gaining traction since it was introduced by the Council of Fashion Designers of America four years ago. Most of the marquee designers have either opted for dual-gender shows — Tom Ford, Michael Kors and John Elliott among them — or showed in Europe, such as Ralph Lauren and Thom Browne. Other men’s designers have opted out of showing in New York altogether including Billy Reid, Perry Ellis and Carlos Campos.
With some exceptions — Joseph Abboud, Todd Snyder, Robert Geller and Ovadia & Sons — the men’s-specific days on the calendar are full of little-known designer names, many of

Economic Incentives Key to Solving U.K. Fashion Industry’s Sustainability Issue, Says Parliament

LONDON — Sustainability campaigners have applauded a new report by the U.K.’s Environmental Audit Committee that highlights the culture of throwaway fashion and the unfavorable working conditions in the country’s apparel factories.
“The report is unequivocal in its message: ‘The fashion industry’s current business model is clearly unsustainable,’” said Prof. Dilys Williams, director at the London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion. “Its call for action is one that involves us all, as designers, makers, sellers, buyers, wearers, investors, educators, communicators and legislators.”
Williams added that education, and ongoing collaboration, between tutors, students, researchers and NGOs, can be a big driver of change.
Frances Corner, head of London College of Fashion, focused on the report’s suggestion that schools teach younger students how to repair clothes. She said some of the most vital steps in addressing fashion’s sustainability issue is putting an end to “throwaway” fashion.
“I hope this report marks a turning point — as has been identified by Mary Creagh [the member of Parliament who spearheaded the investigation] that a voluntary approach to sustainability has not worked. It’s now time for the U.K. fashion industry to lead by example,” said Corner.
The report is the result of an investigation that took place throughout

Five talking points from London Fashion week

Damian Lewis, Helen McCrory Talk Fashion, New Projects at London Shows

FASHION ROUNDS: Husband-and-wife actors Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory kicked off their week in style, attending a range of fashion shows on Monday, including Erdem, Roksanda and Christopher Kane. “I love the glamour and the theater of it: These shows are like 15-minute or five-minute plays,” said McCrory, who said she sees fashion as “a great, big, theatrical dress-up box.”
McCrory, who plays Aunt Polly in the British TV show “Peaky Blinders,” about gangsters in post World War One England, said she also wanted to cheer on her pals Erdem Moralioglu and Roksanda Ilincic. I go to see and support their work just like they would come and see me in a play or film. We support each others as artists in London.”
Having just wrapped up series five of “Peaky Blinders,” the British actress has had her hands full with Tom Rob Smith’s new BBC drama “MotherFatherSon,” in which she will star alongside Richard Gere, Billy Howle and Pippa Bennett-Warner.
Lewis, meanwhile, is working on the new season of “Billions,” reprising his act as the ambitious billionaire Bobby Axelrod and playing alongside Paul Giamatti. That said, there’s one role he can’t see himself taking on in the future: Fashion designer. “People have seen my sense

Re:la Straddles Art, Fashion With Its Frieze Los Angeles Pop-up

ART PROJECT: A contemporary art fair in Los Angeles seemed just the right place for a line that fancies itself more a statement about the city than a fashion label to make its pop-up debut.
Re:la (shorthand for Regarding Los Angeles) launched its second collection and its first pop-up at the Frieze Los Angeles art fair, which is taking place in the city beginning Friday and running through the weekend. It’s the first time the fair is being held on the West Coast and it has pulled in a number of other fashion participants throughout the greater Los Angeles area, including Maxfield, Rimowa and the artist Alex Israel and Matchesfashion.com.
“We’re so excited to be here,” said Katherine Ross, who started re:la with Angelique Soave about a year ago. “We feel the people coming to Frieze are our perfect audience, so we’re going to see what does well.”
The company currently sells through its online shop and has also worked with a handful of retailers, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Le Bon Marché. The label made a name for itself when it began selling last January a collection of T-shirts, sweatshirts, varsity jackets and leather accessories that provided the

Deborah Lyons Kicks Off London Fashion Week With Jazz Night

COMING HOME: Deborah Lyons loves keeping her audience entertained.
For the debut of her new fall 2019 collection, she took over London’s Burlington Arcade on the eve of London Fashion Week — which also happened to be Valentine’s Day — dressed it up with myriad red roses and invited guests and their loved ones for a jazz night.
There were drinks, chocolate treats and a live jazz performance, with the band and singers sporting Lyons’ new fall 2019 pieces, which channeled a tougher, more confident mood, with a darker color palette and a strong focus on the brand’s signature silhouettes.
Some of the highlights included plaid tailored blazers and matching slim pants, body-hugging jumpsuits and a dramatic maxidress appliquéd with red roses all over.
This was the first time Lyons showed on home turf, after taking her show on the road and hosting her debut presentation aboard a Eurostar carriage last September.
“We wanted to do something more intimate and local this time, that brought together our immediate community. Also it’s a nice way to lead into London Fashion Week,” Lyons said.
Her aim with choosing off-schedule slots and alternative presentation formats remains the same: Cutting through the fashion week noise and getting the right audience

Video: Watch Barry Manilow Perform Copacabana at Fashion Week

Michael Kors brought some additional star power to the finale of his fall 2019 show: the iconic American singer, Barry Manilow.
After the last model took her walk on the runway, the house lights dimmed and much to everyone’s delight, a curtain was drawn back revealing Manilow decked out in a bedazzled orange blazer. And there it was, that iconic first line: “Her name was Lola…”

The singer began singing his hit song, “Copacabana,” as models took their finale walk. They then made their way to the stage to join Manilow, including Bella Hadid who took the singer’s hand and swayed with him back and forth.
The rest of the models took their position around the stage, dancing together as Manilow showed off his own moves. The runway at Cipriani Wall Street was decorated with an array of disco balls, fitting for the singer who got his start in the Sixties.

As Manilow finished the number, he was joined by Kors and model Patti Hansen, who hugged and kissed the singer as the audience gave him a standing ovation.
While the performance was a surprise to guests, Kors had hinted at something special on the brand’s Instagram account an hour prior to the show, informing

The Fashion Week Blizzard Didn’t Keep NYFW Showgoers Down

Fashion Week.  Snowstorms. Not a great fit.
So how did the street style set cope with the inclement weather that blanketed New York City with slippery ice and ankle-deep puddles of slush? Some, with aplomb, others — not so much.
Naturally, however, there were some fashion trends forming. The “It” accessory for the snow day was the clear bubble umbrella, as seen on style blogger Christie Ferrari, who paired one with a cream-colored coat over a blue and green outfit.
And despite the slush, some opted for monochromatic pastel outfits in shades of lilac, orange, green and pink, like style blogger Susie Lau, who wore a pink fur Coach jacket over a floral printed dress. Instagram’s Eva Chen, wore an all-lilac outfit featuring an Ochi coat, Cos turtleneck and matching beanie.
On the other hand, some went the neon route, adding a small burst of color to an otherwise dark outfit. One attendee added pops of neon green with her hat and sneakers to an all light denim outfit. Another layered a hot pink fur-lined jacket under a cheetah-print fur coat.
You’ve got to give it, however, to Oscar de la Renta designers Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, who on the day of their show

White Milano Trade Show Continues to Highlight Sustainable Fashion

MILAN — Sustainability was a key theme at the press conference held on Wednesday here to present the White Milano trade show running Feb. 22 to 25.
“White has in its DNA the vocation to experiment, anticipating and grasping the changes of the fashion system”, said White Milano founder Massimiliano Bizzi, announcing a new project in collaboration with a finalist of the 2018 edition of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Matteo Ward, as the creative director of “GIVE A FOK-us — Focus on the Unfocused.”
The project will allow communication with the younger generations, who are “more and more attentive to the traceability of fashion products. We believe it’s also a chance for buyers to renew their retail offer in a conscious way.”
“We are living in a moment of revolution of the fashion system, where we must run to realign the focus of our activities with the real needs of an exhausted planet, an exploited society and of individual people,” said Ward, pointing to a need to follow the example of other industries such as food and automotive, and “make sustainability fashionable.

Frida Giannini Plots Comeback to Fashion

NEXT MOVES: Frida Giannini, Gucci’s creative director until 2015, hinted at the possibility of a comeback to fashion as early as 2019 in a Sunday interview with Italy’s daily paper Il Sole 24 Ore.
“Throughout these years I’ve been submitted several offers: some I discarded, some I considered. Yes, it’s possible that there will be interesting news this year,” the designer is quoted as saying. “Should I make a comeback to fashion, I’d want it to be for a less all-absorbing role than [the one] I had at Gucci,” Giannini noted. Further details were not revealed.
After exiting Gucci, Giannini kept a low profile and eased out of the fashion world. In the interview  she confessed: “When you are absorbed by an apical role in the [fashion] sector, with all the media exposure at the digital era’s fast pace, there’s little time left to reflect and find objectivity. These years [looking] ‘from the window’ have been positive for this reason, as well.”
Since her abrupt departure from Gucci, Giannini has focused on her role as the mother of her daughter Greta, whom she shares with former Gucci chairman and chief executive officer Patrizio di Marco. The couple tied the knot in June 2015 and Giannini chose

EXCLUSIVE: Heron Preston on Opening Paris Men’s Fashion Week

PARIS — “Streetwear on the runways of Paris has always been that vision that I’ve shared with my friends, the ultimate opportunity to present some new fresh ideas in a city and platform that we have always looked up to,” said Heron Preston, who today at the Palais de Tokyo will present the first runway show of his namesake label, as part of the official calendar of Paris Men’s Fashion Week.
Call him a quick learner. Preston, who was “raised” by the skate culture in San Francisco where he grew up, and who first started making noise in 2012 with his art-project bootleg spins on the Givenchy Rottweiler T-shirt, said that it was only around four years ago, when he started working with Kanye West, that he was introduced to the world of Paris fashion.
A former art director for West, Preston — who’s considered a post-Internet Renaissance man — worked at Nike and was also a part of the Been Trill art and DJ collective with Virgil Abloh, Justin Saunders and Matthew Williams.

Copenhagen Fashion Week Delivers Charm — and a Green Focus

COPENHAGEN — The appeal of the Copenhagen fashion girl, often found riding a colorful bicycle and sporting pearl-encrusted hair clips, is here to stay.
Apart from charming the world with their flair for candy colors, cozy decorating and quirky accessories, the Danes mean business: Pioneers in the contemporary category, they’re experts at offering trendy, fuss-free pieces at what they refer to as “honest price points.” Now, they are ready to shift up a gear.
Everyone from Ganni, Copenhagen’s breakout label, to newcomers such as the outerwear brand Stand and Instagram hit Rotate are in the process of expanding their retail footprints across Europe and the U.S. Some are broadening their ranges to include accessories.
They want to do it all with a conscience.
Sustainability in Denmark is less marketing ploy and more a way of life, so when Copenhagen Fashion Week’s newly appointed chief executive officer Cecilie Thorsmark laid out her ambitious plan of turning the three-day showcase into the most sustainable international fashion week, she found that local and international brands were quick to align with her mission.

The entire reception room of the institution had been covered with fragrant sprigs of mimosa, the yellow-budded flower generally associated with the French Côte d’Azur, in honor of a cocktail celebrating the 34th edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography, set to take place from April 25 to 29 at the Villa Noailles in Hyères.

Fashion to Fintech, OnApproval Makes Luxury Shopping Less Cryptic

From fashion to fintech, American fashion designer Alvin Valley partners with HauteLook cofounder Carlota Espinosa and Oracle-acquired InstantService.com founder Damion Hankejh to integrate OnApproval — the “first luxury payment service system” with Uphold in early January.
Having launched in 2015, Uphold serves more than 184 countries to deliver 30-plus currency types including traditional forms and cryptocurrency. Since its launch, it has powered more than $ 4 billion in U.S. transactions while offering “frictionless foreign exchange for merchants and members around the world.”
The partnership anticipates the formal launch of OnApproval, and it allows its members to “pull goods before paying — providing an in-store shopping experience at home” — by partnering as the alpha merchant with Uphold, the “Internet bank of money,” to onboard 1 million OnApproval members.
According to Hankejh, e-commerce is “ripe for remodeling.” In a separate interview with WWD, Espinosa offered that OnApproval “drives loyalty by reducing payment friction and eliminating the “shopping cart” paradigm, triggering in-store behavior in the home wrapped in personalized customer experience.”
Sometimes noted as the “king of pants” for his extensive design reign in the product category, Valley is in good company with his fellow cofounders of OnApproval. Espinosa is cofounder and vice president of the Nordstrom-acquired HauteLook and Hankejh is a chief

Jewelry designer Charlotte Chesnais will head the jury for the festival’s accessories prize, sponsored by Swarovski and now in its third year. Meanwhile, Craig McDean will take the lead for photography.
Ramsay-Levi said it would be her first time attending the festival, and she looked forward to establishing a dialogue with the candidates.
“I have no lessons to give. I believe that everyone has their own journey and there are many different ways to create fashion. All I can do is try to encourage the values I believe in, such as sincerity and hard work. In order to go the distance and say something meaningful, you need to work hard and be exacting,” she told WWD.
She picked her jury to represent all the facets of the business that a designer needs to deal with, from retailers and graphic designers to editors and brand ambassadors.

Leg it to Raw to Go, a new takeaway spot opened by culinary duo Marie and William Pradeleix that specializes in raw food — think sashimi, beef tartare, cold-pressed juices and cacao bars. For a spot of shopping, new men’s concept-store La Garçonnière carries more than 200 brands, including Danish outerwear label Rains, funky eyewear styles by French start-up Izipizi and the ubiquitous — and sustainable — Veja sneakers, as well as a barber shop. As happy hour comes closer, check out the new bar Cambridge Public House, which was opened on Jan. 14 by Hyacinthe Lescoët, former head barman at the Mary Céleste. “Fancy cocktail places can be a bit intimidating, so we wanted to recreate the vibe of an English pub, with cozy furniture and an open mindset,” said the drinks maestro. Good to know for Dry January: around a quarter of the creative cocktails listed on the menu will be spirit free.

Tomorrow Consulting Creates Japanese Fashion Brand Incubator

TOMORROW, TODAY: Fashion accelerator Tomorrow Consulting is launching an incubator to grow high-potential Japanese fashion brands worldwide. It was created with the Japan External Trade Organization and Japanese influencer Daisuke Gemma, and has chosen as its first brand Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi.
“This project comes from a big need of the Japanese market, to help and support talented young designers in new ways, to help the development of their brands,” Luca Corsetti, Tomorrow Consulting’s managing partner, told WWD. “We curated a selection of brands and, for sure, Poggy was the very first one.”
Corsetti said Japanese brand executives will be aided to understand the needs of international markets, including communications and operations. “We decided to support from end to end — from the strategy up to the execution of the product,” he explained.
Corsetti called Kogi, United Arrows & Sons creative director who is known widely as “Poggy the Man,” among the most talented people in Japanese fashion. “Poggy has one of the most brilliant visions about the market at large,” he said.
Kogi’s brand includes collaborations with rising Japanese designers, each one focused on a particular product category. The collection on display currently in Tomorrow’s Right Bank showroom includes shirts made of repurposed bananas

United Nations Alliance on Sustainable Fashion Plans for March Debut in Nairobi

The United Nations Alliance on Sustainable Fashion will be officially launched March 14, during a media event of the 4th U.N. Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya.
While different U.N. institutions have tried to encompass fashion in various sustainability initiatives, this will mark a more comprehensive approach to address all aspects of a sustainable fashion industry. Just as consumers have learned about the environmental farm-to-table choices, sustainability supporters are hopeful that greater awareness about the need for sustainable fashion will lead to changing the consumption and production habits.
The Alliance on Sustainable Fashion is comprised of U.N. and specialized agencies, including Connect4Climate-The World Bank Group, Ethical Fashion Initiative-International Trade Centre, FAO, ILO, U.N. Climate Change (UNFCCC), UNECE, U.N. Environment, U.N. Global Compact, U.N. Office for Partnerships and other groups, according to Michael Stanley-Jones, the co-secretary of the new alliance. The objective is to “coordinate the U.N. system’s response to the challenges that the textiles, fashion and accessories sectors face in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” he said.
Stanley-Jones said, “Fashion is cross-cutting, so to capture the opportunity that fashion presents, the U.N. and its partners need an integrated approach that cuts across individual Sustainable Development Goals to realize the multiple benefits offered

Grin Acquires WearAway for Undisclosed Sum, WearAway Founder to Oversee Fashion, Beauty, Retail Partnerships

Grin, a Sacramento, Calif.-based influencer marketing technology company has acquired WearAway for an undisclosed sum.
As part of the deal WearAway founder Lee Greene has joined Grin as vice president of partnerships with a focus on fashion, beauty and retail. In the four years since she started WearAway as a rental marketplace and online showroom for influencers to borrow designer apparel and accessories for content and events, the company attracted more than 5,000 members, 7,000 products and 900-plus brands.
WearAway is Grin’s first acquisition. As for whether WearAway will still exist as a site, it hasn’t been decided what Grin will do with the domain, according to Grin’s chief executive officer Brandon Brown. “We’re still trying to figure out how do we integrate those assets into the company and what that looks like,” he said, adding that Grin might potentially absorb Wear and not continue it.
Founded in 2014 as a cross-promotion marketplace for influencers, Grin moved into influencer marketing in May 2017, Brown said. The two companies were connected through a mutual friend who thought the acquisition would be “a really good fit and spoke with the founders,” Greene said. “We immediately connected and really hit it off.

Will New York Fashion Shows Ultimately Land at The Shed?

When will New York Fashion Week set up its fashion shows at the Shed, which opens April 5?
For years, reports have been circulating that the fashion shows would take place at The Shed once it was completed. The Shed revealed Wednesday that the new nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to commissioning, developing and presenting original works of art, across all disciplines for all audiences, will have its opening season starting April 5. The Shed looks to present world premiere works in the performing arts, visual arts and popular culture.
“We have built a home where established and emerging artists working in all disciplines can create new work in ways that we cannot even imagine,” said Alex Poots, artistic director and chief executive officer of The Shed.
So where does fashion fit in?
Ivan Bart, president of IMG Models and IMG Fashion Properties, which produces the fashion shows, said, “We are hosting NYFW: The Shows at Spring Studios this February, and our focus is on the upcoming season. The Shed is an exciting new development with incredible potential to enhance New York’s culture, and we’re confident many of our talent at Endeavor, whether with IMG or WME, will perform or engage with the space.” He

Do Men’s Fashion Weeks Have a Future?

The rise of genderless fashion and coed shows are sparking questions over the future of men’s fashion weeks.
According to data from Launchmetrics, the Media Impact Value — a quantitative number generated by an algorithm to measure the impact of relevant media placements — of men’s showcases around the world has been constantly diminishing as big names exit in favor of coed shows held during the women’s shows. Brands are also putting more focus on communicating one unified message across their men’s and women’s wear departments.
Data gathered during the spring 2019 events last June in New York and London showed they have been lagging behind in terms of the buzz created across print, digital and social media, generating 2.1 million euros and 5.8 million euros, respectively, in earned media impact value.
Men’s showcases in Florence, Milan and Paris, on the other hand, whose schedules are filled with big brand names, continue to hold on to their relevance.
Florence and Milan generated a combined media impact value of 49.4 million euros, while Paris Men’s Fashion Week generated 57.8 million euros.
Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton debut lead the conversation last season — generating 18.2 million euros — and was followed by the likes of Dior, Versace,

What to Watch: New York Fashion Week: Men’s Latest Challenges

New York Fashion Week: Men’s has had trouble gaining a foothold since it was launched by the Council of Fashion Designers of America four years ago. The upcoming fall shows — slated for Feb. 4 to 6 — are facing even bigger challenges. First, an unexpected one-time shift in dates by the trade shows in Las Vegas means that retailers and editors who usually attend both will have to make a choice or abbreviate one or both of the events. Project, Liberty Fairs and Agenda will be held Feb. 5 to 7.
On top of that, many of fashion’s biggest and buzziest names have opted to either hold dual-gender shows or have decamped to other cities. Tom Ford will again hold a men’s and women’s show, as he has in past seasons, at 8 p.m. on Feb. 6, officially ending the men’s shows. The women’s shows kick off with Ralph Lauren on Feb. 7 at 10 a.m.
Also opting for dual-gender shows later in the week are Palm Angels — which is making its New York debut — on Feb. 8; John Elliott on Feb. 9; Opening Ceremony on Feb. 10, and Michael Kors on the final day, Feb. 13.

London Fashion Week Men’s Fall 2019: What to See, Eat and Where to Shop

LONDON — The first weekend in January is never an easy one, but London has the antidote, with a lineup of streetwear and luxury stores and restaurants serving everything from classic British to Taiwanese food, all of which will be open during London Fashion Week Men’s.

London store End. 
Peter Cook

END OF THE LINE: British property group Shaftesbury has expanded its retail portfolio, opening the first London outpost for the online men’s wear store, End. Occupying 9,000 square feet on the corner of Broadwick and Marshall Streets, the two-story glass-fronted space offers a range of collections from labels including Off-White, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Nike and Adidas Consortiums. The store, which already has units in Newcastle, England, and Glasgow, Scotland, features modern furnishings such as marble staircases and glass showcases.
End is part of a strategy by Shaftesbury to position Soho as a go-to destination for emerging brands. The company has been offering reasonable rents in the neighborhood, which is a few minutes’ walk from Oxford and Regent Streets. Shaftesbury has also helped to install Supreme, Palace, Carhartt and Dukes Cupboard, a multibrand retailer, in the neighborhood. Samantha Bain-Mollison, head of retail at Shaftesbury, has been driving the strategy. She describes End as “influential, with a renowned selection of directional and globally sourced men’s wear.” — Hannah Connolly

PETA France Reveals Winners of 2018 Vegan Fashion Prize

PRIZE MOMENT: PETA France on Wednesday revealed the winners of the third edition of its PETA Vegan Fashion Prize, which covers a range of categories.
The Biggest Luxury Fashion Moment went to Versace, Burberry, Maison Margiela, Diane von Furstenberg and Jean Paul Gaultier for going fur free, even if Gaultier is yet to officially confirm his position. The Biggest High-Street Fashion Moment went to more than 300 brands that ditched using mohair including Lacoste, Comptoir des Cotonniers, Princesse Tam Tam and Promod.
“The vegan lifestyle is booming, and consumers are turning their attention to products that fit with their ecological principles and respect for animals,” said Mathilde Dorebessan, corporate communications officer for PETA France. “Designers today are adopting materials that do not involve cruelty and the days of brands that continue to treat animals as textile products are numbered.”
This year’s Innovation Award went to Ecopel for its fake-fur developed from recycled plastic bottles. Galeries Lafayette’s footwear line Studio Céleste was named Best Vegan Shoe Collection.
Asos was crowned Most Progressive Retailer for having banned collections containing cashmere, silk, duvet, feathers and mohair across its platform.
Other winners included Ashoka Paris for the vegan bag category, Magnethik for Best Wool-Free Coats, and Napapijri for Best Cruelty-Free Parkas.

Gucci to Host Event During January’s Fashion Week in Milan

MILAN — Gucci will cap off the upcoming Men’s Fashion Week in January with a performance event here.
As Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana president Carlo Capasa revealed during a press conference on Wednesday presenting the schedule of the city’s upcoming fashion week, the fashion label — which will return to Milan in February with a coed show after it decamped to Paris last September for one season — will host the “Motus presents MDLSX with Silvia Calderoni” performance event at its Gucci hub headquarters on Jan. 14. The performance, which will be produced by independent theater company Motus and directed by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, will blend a monologue by Calderoni and video projections exploring the notion of gender identity in a play inspired by the 2003 novel “Middlesex” by American writer Jeffrey Eugenides. Capasa dubbed the event “not to be missed,” noting how important it is for Gucci to be part of the official schedule.
Men’s Fashion Week will run Jan. 11 to 14 and while, as reported, the Giorgio Armani brand is the latest to join the likes of Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Salvatore Ferragamo to skip the January shows to host a coed runway event in February, Emporio Armani

WWD Yearbook: Melania Trump’s Fashion Statements

While President Trump has made many a faux pas on the world stage this year, the same could be said for First Lady Melania Trump in the fashion and interior design sphere — and some of them even trump 2017’s Hurricane Harvey and Manolo Blahnik heels incident.
Here’s a round-up of her outfit choices that got everyone talking over the past 12 months:
 
Kenya Safari Outfit
FLOTUS’ getup during a solo trip to Kenya in October led to a lot of raised eyebrows, particularly her choice of pith helmet during an expedition in Kenya’s Nairobi National Park. The issue? It gave off imperialist vibes, harking back to the times when European military officials sported such outfits while commanding colonial armies in Africa.
She didn’t take the criticism lying down, telling reporters: “We just completed an amazing trip. We went to Ghana. We went to Malawi. We went to Kenya. Now here we are in Egypt. I want to talk about my trip and not what I wear. That’s very important — what I do, what we’re doing with USAID, my initiatives — and I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear.”

Izzue to Launch Capsule With CSM and to Show During London Fashion Week

FIRST TIME AROUND: Hong Kong fashion brand Izzue is throwing a 20th birthday bash in the form of a runway show during London Fashion Week in February. This will be the first time that Izzue’s men’s and women’s pieces will be showcased on a London runway.
“London has always been a source of inspiration for Izzue. It has always embodied British punk, so to show outside of Asia needed to be a natural next step and it needed to make sense, so it had to be London,” said Deborah Cheng, chief commercial officer at I.T group.
Izzue, which is under the multibrand I.T Group, has formed ties with London since 2013 when they launched in the U.K. in Selfridges. Since then, the brand has gone from being a pop-up to having a dedicated space in the department store’s Contemporary Studio on the third floor.
“Our pop-up was so successful back in 2013 that we were offered a permanent space on the ground floor right after, and to this day we are still exceeding their expectations. We’ve grown with Selfridges and now we are located in the Contemporary Studio,” said Cheng.

Galeries Lafayette and Ester Manas to Offer One-Size-Fits-All Fashion

A NEW SIZE: Redefining the age-old “one size fits all” notion, a collection of adjustable dresses, tops and trench coats designed by Ester Manas will be sold at Galeries Lafayette this spring.
“It’s a collection that draws on the idea that all women must be dressed,” explained Manas, winner of the department store’s prize at the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères, France, this year. Pointing to a sweatshirt with a bright red elastic belt, the designer explained that the collection, called “Fashion for All,” is meant to span a range from European size 34 to size 50, thanks to the help of belts, straps and snaps.

South African Fashion on Show at Zeitz MOCAA

South Africa’s fashion and art crowd descended upon Cape Town this week for the pre-opening party of contemporary art museum Zeitz MOCAA’s first fashion exhibition, “21 Years: Making Histories With South African Fashion Week.”
SA Fashion Week, founded by former model Lucilla Booyzen in 1997, marked the anniversary last October with a small exhibition shown during the presentation of the SAFW 2019 fall collections in the Johannesburg suburb of Sandton City. Booyzen chose 21 designers as a historical recap of the past 21 years of SA fashion, and planned a book to accompany the exhibit.
“When Erica de Greef, the senior fashion curator of Zeitz MOCAA, heard that I was going to do a book and an exhibition, she was incredibly excited, and she then planned to do an edited version of what I did in Johannesburg at Zeitz,” Booyzen recounted.
Curated by de Greef, the exhibition occupies two gallery spaces on the museum’s fourth level and features 21 ensembles from 21 designers, spanning different styles, multiple collections and various seasons, showcasing, in effect, a micro-history of South African fashion since 1997. On show are designers such as Clive Rundle, Amanda Laird Cherry and Loxion Kulca, alongside younger names such as Sindiso Khumalo, Thebe

As part of an ongoing effort to showcase artistic programs, Spring Place will be staging “Infoxication” Monday night.
The 50-minute multidisciplinary performance will feature art, music, dance and technology. The theme is technology’s presence in our lives. Infoxication is the latest arts-related collaboration at Spring, with the American Ballet Theatre and the Water Miller Center being others. Monday’s will be the first full production, and the largest one to date, with more than 20 collaborators, according to Spring Place’s art director, Roya Sachs.

Hussein Chalayan, Peter Saville Accuse Fashion Corporates of Crushing Creativity

LONDON — How is technology impacting creativity, and what does it really take to disrupt an industry that’s reaching saturation point?
Frieze Academy brought together a series of creatives — ranging from Kim Jones and Hussein Chalayan, to graphics expert Peter Saville and sound designer Michel Gaubert — to argue those questions in a series of talks held at the Royal Academy of Arts on Friday.
Chalayan, one of the first designers to incorporate technology into his work and present moving garments in his famous “Geotropics” collection in 1999, said technology’s impact on the arts hasn’t necessarily been a good thing.
He described wearables as “tacky” and highlighted the growing interest of handcrafted techniques: “It’s such a cliché to be chasing 3-D printing now. I liked it at the beginning, but not anymore, it no longer feels expensive somehow,” Chalayan said.
He also touched on the influence of the Internet and social media, talking about the “sense of entitlement,” that the easy access to data has created in younger generations.
“Are you really learning by Googling something?” he said, adding that social media and the rise of fashion conglomerates have both dampened creativity. Chalayan said  there is less room today to speak up, take risks and

Dilara Findikoglu Swaps Fashion Week for Halloween

EXPLORING CONFLICT: Dilara Findikoglu, the Turkish-born, London-based designer, has built a reputation as a rule breaker ever since she staged a guerrilla fashion show outside Central Saint Martins three years ago.
She has now been rethinking the fashion calendar and quit the London Fashion Week schedule this September to present her spring 2019 collection in time for Halloween, in an 18th-century Georgian home in East London filled with dark wood furniture, grand chandeliers and an array of paraphernalia dating back 300 years.
“It’s important for a young designer to try to experience new things. If you follow what everyone else is doing, there is no point in trying to be a young innovative designer,” said Findikoglu. “That’s the main reason why I wanted to present in a different time, in my own time.

Mindsight Lab Touts Fashion Pop-up Exhibition

MindSight Lab, a technical start-up for fashion industry solutions, launched “Up Down,” an exhibit focused on sustainable clothing design, located on Elizabeth Street in SoHo in New York with the aim of introducing ideas that can help “reduce the industry’s environmental costs,” as well as challenge visitors to discuss and redefine the modern-day meaning of sustainability.
As an interactive exhibit, Up Down is designed to lead guests through four stages of the garment-making process while introducing eco-conscious designs, materials and methods.
Presented in three sections, “Innovative Approach,” “Creative Zero Waste” and “Human, Nature, Fashion,” the exhibit underscores the relationship between humans and nature by highlighting the “contrast of unlimited human imagination versus limited natural resources,” and the “so-called natural materials that cost even more to the environment and society.” Standout items include Clémentine Sandner’s gorgeously designed upcycled Kimono handbags, “The Collage of Textiles” made of 200 “no longer needed” clothes and RenDu’s “Echo” soundscape installation that mimics rainfall on bamboo.

New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Vegas Date Overlap Causing Angst

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe — make your choice — New York Fashion Week: Men’s or MAGIC.
A shift in dates by Project, the flagship men’s wear trade show of the MAGIC Marketplace in Las Vegas, to a week earlier in February is forcing many brands and retailers to choose between the two events or, in the case of smaller designers, create extra samples in order to have a presence at both.
NYFW: Men’s will run Feb. 4 to 6 in New York City while Project will run Feb. 5 to 7 in Las Vegas.
Already Liberty Fairs and Agenda have had to leave their longtime home at the Sands Convention Center in order to align with Project’s dates and have secured a spot in downtown Las Vegas for their shows.
Sharifa Murdock, co-owner of Liberty, said she’s aiming to deliver a different experience this time. Liberty will be held at the World Market Center, which she described as an “open space with four big tents” that will allow Liberty a clean slate to “create what we want. We’re going to do something brand new,” she said.
That will include “a lot of activations” that will offer a “fresh” take on the trade show scene. “We

Amazon Fashion Hosts First European Pop-up, Showcases Range of Product Selection

SWITCHING OFF: Amazon Fashion has gone off-line with a pop-up store on Baker Street in London to engage with its online customers. The company’s first pop-up store in Europe opened Tuesday and will trade until Saturday, offering a range of in-store events ranging from fashion to fitness.
To excite consumers and keep them coming back, the merchandise will rotate every other day to fit in line with a theme. Everything has been chosen by Amazon Fashion’s in-house stylists.
“We’re always looking for ways to surprise and delight our customers and we wanted to create a different shopping experience that’s both memorable and fun,” said Susan Saideman, vice president of Amazon Fashion Europe.
“On Day Three, we have a curated selection of fitness and ath-leisure brands and products to complement the in-store yoga sessions for that day,” Saideman said. Other events include denim customization by Pepe Jeans, a beauty trend panel on Wednesday night and personal stylists who will be available throughout the week.
The pop-up will house a range of brands including Love Moschino, Calvin Klein, Puma, Levi’s and Vans alongside Amazon’s own labels such as Iris & Lilly, Truth & Fable and Find. They are meant to showcase the site’s “top-to-toe offering.”

India Fashion Week: A New Sponsor — and a New Strategy

NEW DELHI — India Fashion Week here for the first time went direct to consumer, indicating the country’s changing fashion market.
The fashion week, the first four days of which were dedicated to retail buyers, also came with a new sponsor and a new name — the Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week, or LMIFW.
“The event kept the tradition of buyer sale for the first four days and added a new dimension for public sale on the penultimate two days at the same venue,” Sunil Sethi, president of the Fashion Design Council of India, or FDCI, told WWD. FDCI is the organizer of the event, which closed Oct. 15. “In its 19 years of existence, the FDCI has never thought of doing a B2C show. We have always been about business-to-business, and we are just adding on a new dimension,” he added.
Describing the changing retail market, and a year in which many designers have slowed the opening of their own stores, he said the last two days included past seasons’ designs and old inventory. “Many of the designers have been talking about the pain in retail, about downsizing a bit and reengineering their operations. In the factories, people are reassessing what to do this

Tess Holliday Fired Someone Who Said It Was ‘Impossible’ for Her to Do High Fashion Modeling

Tess Holliday won’t let other people stop her from realizing her dreams.

When someone on her team told the 33-year-old model that it was “impossible” for her to work in high fashion, Holliday fired her — and then did the impossible.

“Someone on my team, at the beginning of this year, emailed me and asked me what my goals were for 2018, and I said I wanted to do high fashion. They responded with saying that it was impossible, and that if the designers aren’t making clothing in my size, then there’s no point in asking the designers,” Holliday said in a video for Cosmopolitan.

“When people tell me that I can’t do something, it makes me want to do it, and I’m incredibly stubborn. So, I fired them.”

And Holliday used her stubbornness to make her high-fashion dreams a reality.

“Since I’ve fired them, I’ve done two high fashion shoots. I’ve shot two major covers, I am continuing to do even cooler stuff in the high fashion world, and basically prove them Please view this post in your web browser to complete the quiz. in like, four months,” she said. “When I prove people wrong that said I could never do high fashion or my critics that don’t believe in me, it feels really damn good.”

The mom of two added that she’s very used to people telling her all the things she can’t do.

“There were a lot of people in my life who thought that I was crazy for going after my dreams,” she said. “I was told that I would never model in the first place. I couldn’t get an agent, no one was interested in representing me, no one was interested in hiring me.”

But Holliday pushed through, and knows she’s making a difference.

“I know that I have selling power, I know that people like seeing bigger bodies and marginalized bodies, because I represent women that you don’t see a lot in media and in print,” she said.

“A lot of people just expect that my life is perfect and everything works out, and the reality is it’s taken so many years, and so much hard work, and so many sacrifices, and I still have to sacrifice so much, and it’s still so much work to even be here, and people still don’t see all the behind-the-scenes,” she added. “If you want to chase your dreams you have to keep going.”

FIT Panelists Suggest Fighting Fast Fashion in the Name of Sustainability

The impact of fast fashion on sustainability was one of the takeaways Thursday morning at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
The NPD Group’s chief industry adviser Marshall Cohen led the discussion about how companies and consumers can be more environmentally minded in their purchases and practices. Other participants included Taryn Hipwell, founder of Beyond the Label and author of “How to Shop for Shi(f)t”; Vanessa Urenda, cofounder of LAMINI; Valérie Martin, vice president of global communications and culture at the Aldo Group, and Sabra Krock creative director and co-owner of Everything but Water.
Panelists agreed that brands and shoppers need to be more conscientious about the root source of the products they buy and produce. Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, Reformation, Eileen Fisher, Tradesy, The Real Real, Groceries Apparel and Outerknown were among the sustainable-conscious labels they cited as helping to lead the charge. Hipwell predicted that in the next five years consumers, especially younger ones, will research the heritage of their apparel purchases as readily as they book travel online or track FedEx shipments. To that end, Sourcemap, a company that specializes in supply chain mapping, enables companies to trace products to the source. Noting that sustainable efforts can go beyond in-store and

Nary Manivong Returns to the Fashion Scene With a Direct-to-Consumer Signature Collection

TIME FOR A SECOND ACT: After a four-year hiatus, Nary Manivong is back on the scene with a direct-to-consumer signature collection.
The designer decided to hit the reset button, even leaving New York for the better part of 2014, before returning. Interestingly, Manivong said he didn’t jump at the opportunity to start his own label when Handa Fashion’s Jack Shi presented the idea. The duo have known each other professionally for 10 years, but their partnership evolved over time. Not wanting to rush back into fashion full time, the conversation played out over 18 months during which Shi offered to provide all the production services for his signature label at no cost.
Manivong now occupies a floor that serves as a factory, sample room and showroom in a West 35th Street building. His capsule collection — three dresses, a skirt and six tops — will be sold online direct-to-consumer starting Thursday. Aiming to be strategic with his growth plan, he wants to find the right retail partner initially rather than multiple ones. Retail prices will range from $ 400 to $ 900 with the higher-end of the spectrum made from Laotian textiles. The Ohio-born designer took the 19-hour flight there earlier this year to meet many relatives for the

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Returning to New York

After a two-year trip abroad — to Paris and then Shanghai — the extravaganza and hype machine that is the Victoria’s Secret fashion show is returning to New York.
In a series of posts to Instagram Monday, the brand touted: “Start spreading the news…the #VSFashionShow is back in New York City!” The posts pictured the brand’s “angels” toting their wings about town, hailing a cab, emerging from the subway and passing through Grand Central Terminal.
Together the three posts racked up 1,400 comments in just a few hours — illustrating the reach of the event, which is preparing for its 23rd outing.
For the 2016 production in Paris, the brand imported 70 tons of equipment, 18 miles of cable and 51 of the world’s top models.
Last year, the show ran into other complications in Shanghai, when visas were denied to Katy Perry, reportedly after her perceived support for Taiwan, and Gigi Hadid and others.
Having the show in New York should avoid those kinds of difficulties, but the big question for the business is whether the show can help bring some vigor back to the brand, which has been casting about for direction and looking to reverse a trend of sales declines in its stores.

Fashion East RTW Spring 2019

Charlotte Knowles, Yuhan Wang and Asai’s A Sai Ta served up a combination of experimental and tongue-in-cheek designs at the Fashion East showcase, where utilitarian silhouettes, string bikinis and girly details poked fun at stereotypical female codes.
Knowles opened the show with a red corseted number that had a halter-neck bikini attachment, which laid out the foundation to her spring collection. A sea-lion printed dress, which looked like it was made out of bikinis, fitted leggings and Lycra shorts with leg ties all riffed off the two-piece swimwear. These hyper-feminine pieces were contrasted with trashy chic low-rise jeans and a fitted military jacket.
Wang’s portrait of a woman was soft, delicate yet slightly run down. Silk and printed jersey dresses were loosely bunched and gathered at the sides and these flounced gently down the runway. While these styles were dreamy, they also looked like ensembles made for women of the night. Dresses were cut out at the hip and slashed around the legs and their gloved hands fell drearily to the wayside.
Asai’s A Sai Ta took a welcome break from his usual fringed looks and introduced more tailored pieces, such as an oil slick coat and a wide utilitarian waist belt with flap

H&M Stages See-Now-Buy-Now Fashion Show in Shanghai in Time for Tmall Super Brand Day

H&M’S SUPER DAY: For the first time, H&M dove into Super Brand Day Wednesday on Tmall, one of the leading e-commerce platforms.
To try to maximize its efforts, H&M China staged a see-now-buy-now H&M Studio A/W 2018 fashion show in Shanghai with some H&M-clad, well-known guests: Model Ju Xiaowen, pop idol Wang Ziyi, actress Rayza and musician and actress Summer. The garments worn by the celebrities sold out within minutes, according to H&M. In total, about 1,000 members of the media, influencers and special guests joined executives and staffers from H&M and Tmall for the runway show. The event was also live-streamed on Tmall. A hot-pink pussy bow blouse, a pink-and-red pleated skirt, a shimmery black cocktail dress, light-blue men’s suit and a gray crewneck sweater imprinted with a large “H” on the front were some of the runway styles.
Tmall’s base of shoppers helps to bolster H&M China’s 400-plus stores, as well as its e-commerce site. The company launched its Tmall store in March and Wednesday’s tie-in was the latest evolution of the alliance. Through its #YourDayYourWay campaign, Chinese shoppers were offered special promotions via the H&M Tmall store.
