Fashion Nova’s 2019 Halloween Costumes Are Inspired by Celebrity Looks

Isn’t imitation the sincerest form of flattery?
Fashion Nova would say so. The fast-fashion online retailer, which has become known for re-creating the celebrity fashion looks of Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, among others, is releasing a line of 2019 Halloween costumes that are inspired by some iconic celebrity fashion looks.
The retailer has released a number of Halloween costumes mimicking multiple celebrity looks, including Jennifer Lopez’s iconic plunging Versace gown from the 2000 Grammy Awards for $ 69.99, Cardi B’s black-and-white checkered suit from her “Invasion of Privacy” album cover for $ 69.99 and Madonna’s Jean Paul Gaultier conical corset from her Blond Ambition tour from the Nineties for $ 59.99.

Fashion Nova is also offering costumes inspired by styles worn by Lil’ Kim, Selena, Aaliyah and Jenner.
The online retailer has partnered with celebrities in the past. Most recently, the brands teamed with Cardi B for a collection.  Conversely, Fashion Nova has also been called out by celebrities who have accused the company of knocking off one-of-a-kind designer looks they have recently worn. Kardashian, for one, spoke out against Fashion Nova in February for re-creating the bondage-inspired vintage

Photography, Phones Restricted at Savage x Fenty Fashion Show

If you’re covering the Savage x Fenty show, it’s best to have a photographic memory.
The fashion show has imposed a host of restrictions for editors attending Tuesday night’s event in Brooklyn, N.Y. According to KCD, certain photographers will be allowed to cover the red carpet, but no photographers will be allowed inside the show venue. Three select images will be released that evening to the media. Phones aren’t to be used during the event and will be placed in locked pouches that guests can hold onto.
The reason for all the restrictions is that the live show will be streamed exclusively on Amazon Prime in more than 200 countries and territories beginning Sept. 20, as reported. The show combines models, actors and dancers wearing the latest styles from Savage x Fenty, the intimates collection designed by Rihanna. A number of “surprise” musical performances are expected to be part of the event.
The fashion show is called for 9 p.m. and is expected to begin sharply at 9:15 p.m. The invitation says the show will be “nontraditional,” and will last 40 minutes.
Tuesday night’s show will be Rihanna’s second event for the brand since she launched it in 2017.

Street Style at New York Fashion Week Spring 2020

At New York Fashion Week, the street style can be just as intriguing as the looks on the runway.
Cooler September temperatures have made the street style set forgo their traditional summer wear for more layers, including printed suits and matching sets worn in both neutrals and colorful prints. The monochromatic look is also proving to be a favorite, with showgoers gravitating toward greens, purples and pinks.

Scott Eastwood Talks Upcoming Nautica Malibu Triathlon and His Fashion Start-up

“It’s not like I’m a triathlete by any means, but once in a while, I roll out of bed and do it,” said Scott Eastwood, catching up ahead of the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on Sept. 14. “I haven’t [worked out],” he said with a laugh. “I’m gonna get my ass kicked, but I’m looking forward to it.”
This marks the 23rd year that the American apparel brand, founded in 1983, is the official merchandise partner for the annual event, which is in its 33rd year and raises funds for pediatric cancer research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Los Angeles.
The course features a 1.5-kilometer swim in the Pacific Ocean, a 40-kilometer bike course along the Pacific Coast Highway and a 10-kilometer run on pavement and blacktop along Zuma Beach in Malibu. But Eastwood is no slouch; he’s done the race before, and he stays in shape. After all, the young actor is Hollywood royalty (the son of Clint Eastwood) with heartthrob status, and he often takes on action-packed roles. Recently, there was 2017’s “Overdrive” and 2018’s “Pacific Rim Uprising” and “The Outpost” is out in October, in which he plays a soldier in combat with Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

A Brief History of Beyoncé at Fashion Week

Today, a Beyoncé red carpet appearance is a rare occasion, but back in the early Aughts, the pop icon was a fixture at fashion week.
The singer, who turns 38 today, was a front row regular at New York Fashion Week, attending shows like Baby Phat, BCBG, Emporio Armani and Badgley Mischka with then-boyfriend Jay-Z, where she was routinely seen photographed with the designers. Her most recent fashion week appearance dates back to 2015 at Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 1 show at New York Fashion Week, where Beyoncé was photographed sitting front row alongside Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian West, Anna Wintour, Hailey Bieber and Russell Simmons.

Fashion Parade Showcases South Asian Design

On Tuesday night, Sadia Siddiqui brought the fashion of South Asia to New York City through her Fashion Parade runway show. The show at Christie’s Auction House marked its New York City debut and featured six South Asia ready-to-wear designers’ looks from their spring 2020 collections.
The night of rich culture and exciting fashion kicked off with an opening reception showcasing the upcoming auction “South Asian Modern + Contemporary Art,” followed by opening remarks from the event’s headline sponsor — Citigroup’s chief financial officer Mark Mason — as well as from the event’s educational partner, the dean of the Fashion Institute of Technology Mary David. A day after the runway show, FIT hosted a panel discussion about the evolution of South Asian fashion with the designers.
“It’s an emotional moment for me today because I only arrived [to New York] a year ago,” Siddiqui explained, taking the stage just before the designers emerged. “I was born and raised in Pakistan and spent most of my adult life in London. I was working in fashion and felt extremely passionately about South Asian art, culture, our heritage, our fashion…our amazing South Asian designers and the beautiful artisan craft they are doing back home.

How Jeffrey Epstein Is Linked to Fashion, Media and President Trump

As friends, acquaintances and former business associates — including President Trump, who was once all three, and former President Clinton — rush to distance themselves from Jeffrey Epstein, who died in an apparent suicide on Aug. 10, more and more links between the fashion and media worlds and the convicted sex offender and disgraced billionaire keep coming to light, no doubt causing numerous public figures to brace themselves for potentially embarrassing disclosures along the lines of “Epstein was once seen with [Fill in the Blank].”
According to court documents released by the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York, Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, was charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors between 2002 and 2005 in New York and Florida. If convicted, he would have faced a maximum prison sentence of 45 years.
While information on Epstein’s business ventures and earnings are scant so far, the money manager and former Wall Street trader had many dealings within the fashion and media spaces, notably with Victoria’s Secret owner Leslie H. Wexner. Epstein managed Wexner’s finances for more than two decades, along with those

Fashion Institute of Technology’s proximity to numerous Broadway theaters is no longer its only tie to the Great White Way.
To celebrates its 25th anniversary, Disney on Broadway has teamed with FIT for a design challenge to reimagine two looks for 10 Disney on Broadway heroines and characters. Ten of the school’s fashion design students were selected from a field of 100. They were inspired by such characters as Nala from “The Lion King,” Jane from “Tarzan,” Elsa from “Frozen” and others.

The Future of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Still Unclear

The future of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is still up in the air. But some people — even some former Angels — don’t seem to care. 
In fact, when asked about the show by a fan on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” model and actress Kate Upton, who is also a former Victoria’s Secret catalogue model, likened the whole affair to a “snooze fest.” 
“We’re sick of seeing the same body type,” Upton said. “You have to be body inclusive now. Every woman needs to be represented.” 
Upton doesn’t seem to be the only one bored by the Fashion Show. Viewership of the annual extravaganza — once considered one of the most sought-after events in the industry — has consistently fallen in recent years.

It didn’t help when Ed Razek, former chief marketing officer of L Brands, parent company to Victoria’s Secret, told Vogue magazine during last fall’s show in New York that “no one had any interest,” in seeing transgender or plus-size models in the fashion show. “Because the show is a fantasy.” 
Razek’s comments quickly caused a fury online. (He later apologized by way of social media.) 
But the damage was down. In an era of MeToo and body positivity,

Fashion Offers a Lot to Learn in New Exhibitions in New York

The educational and cultural-influencing aspects of fashion exhibitions are often eclipsed by their visual appeal, but a few new exhibitions are set up to be more thought-provoking.
Next month visitors to the Bard Graduate Center’s “French Fashion, Women and the First World War,” will get a better understanding of wartime textiles and fashion, French-American fashion allegiance, the seamstresses’ strike of 1917, tension driven by women’s increased self-reliance, and the question of postwar women’s rights. Along with such garments as a 1917 Callot Sœurs daytime dress, the war’s impact on the French fashion industry is examined. In August and September 1914, German troops bombed French factories in Lille, Turcoing and Roubaix to try to destroy the textile industry. Manufacturers and designers banded together to try to salvage the losses, focusing production on Lyon-made silk textiles, instead of the wool, cotton and linen textiles produced in the north. Parisian couture houses pitched “war crinoline,” as the new fall silhouette, urging domestic and foreign buyers and clients to purchase it to help the French war effort.
With 8 million French men away at the front, women replaced men in many positions. To try to squelch the advancement of women’s suffrage and other freedoms, the French

NYFW Spring 2020: What to Expect at New York Fashion Week in September

As summer enters its final month, the fashion industry is gearing up for another show season, but it’s starting with a New York Fashion Week that’s a bit different from seasons past.
The biggest news for the spring 2020 collections is that NYFW will be on a shorter official schedule, down to six days of shows listed on the calendar released by the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The initiative to trim down the schedule was spearheaded by the CFDA’s new chairman, designer Tom Ford, who assumed the role from longtime CFDA head, Diane von Furstenberg, in June. Upon his appointment as CFDA chairman, Ford said reinventing NYFW was a top priority.
From which designers are showing to Ford’s role as CFDA chairman, here is what to expect from NYFW spring 2020.

The schedule will now begin on Friday, Sept. 6 — with the first show a “performance” by Telfar — and will end on Wednesday, Sept.

London College of Fashion Presents Its Largest Graduate Showcase

LONDON — Ahead of the summer holidays, hundreds of London College of Fashion students paraded styles ranging from the deconstructed and apocalyptic to the folkloric in the school’s largest graduate showcase yet.
Some 431 students from BA and Diploma courses presented their designs in a show space next to LCF’s new East London campus, which will open in 2022. The new site, East Bank, will join the college’s six locations under one roof.
On Thursday night, 58 students presented pieces from their graduate collections.
BA Women’s wear fashion design technology graduate Qianyu Li showed her talent for fabric manipulation. Periwinkle blue and lilac colored dresses were folded, gathered and cut into shapes resembling origami.
Graduate YY Ang from BA Fashion Textiles Embroidery focused instead on textures. Multicolored dresses were highlighted with long fringing and frayed denim patches were sewn on top of tightly woven fabric.
On Friday, every student in the graduating class was able to show one or two looks. Given the sheer volume of exits, the presentation was chaotic.
Friday afternoon’s designs included parachute dresses and many collections featured sustainable latex — and body harnesses.
Anushka Patel from BA Fashion Textiles Embroidery showed off her technicolor draping, followed by Juo-yu Wang from Graduate Diploma Fashion Design Technology with a folkloric

All the High Fashion Moments From Beyoncé’s ‘Spirit’ Music Video

Beyoncé’s “Spirit” music video is visually striking, both for its picturesque landscape and high-fashion moments.
Filmed in the Grand Canyon, Beyoncé is joined by a host of dancers and her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, dressed in looks ranging from Valentino’s spring 2019 couture collection to up-and-coming international brands, including Canadian designer Mark Fast and Brazilian brand Maison Alexandrine. The looks were styled by Zerina Akers.

The music video was debuted Tuesday evening and is a part of the upcoming “The Lion King” live-action reboot’s soundtrack, which Beyoncé curated and produced. Beyoncé herself voices adult Nala in the film and joined the film’s cast for the Los Angeles premiere on July 10, where she had a mother-daughter twinning moment with Blue Ivy, and for the London premiere on Sunday, where Beyoncé and husband Jay Z met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The “Spirit” music video starts off with Beyoncé sitting in the desert wearing a color-blocked, exaggerated ruffle look from Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino spring 2019 couture collection, which celebrated black women. She was joined by Blue Ivy, who wore a similar lilac-colored ruffle dress.

Vogue Talents to Celebrate 10th Anniversary With Exhibition at Milan Fashion Week

TALENTS ON SHOW: To mark its 10th anniversary, Vogue Talents, Vogue Italia’s fashion talent scouting project, will be celebrated during the upcoming Milan Fashion Week with an exhibition at Brera’s Palazzo Cusani, running Sept. 20 and 21.
The exhibit will include the creations of 70 designers who in the past 10 years were involved in the program, which was founded in 2009 by the magazine’s late editor in chief Franca Sozzani and Sara Sozzani Maino, currently head of Vogue Talents and Vogue Italia deputy editor for special fashion projects.
“Vogue Talents was created to support the new generation of creatives at a time when few people believed in talent,” Sozzani Maino said. “It’s borderless and barrier-free, and it searches the world, because there’s talent everywhere. Our mission going forward is to act responsibly and set an example that the world needs to change.”
The list of designers scouted by the team of Vogue Talents includes names such as Jonathan Anderson, Aquazzura, Giannico, Paula Cademartori, Arthur Arbesser, Simone Rocha and Bethany Williams.
In keeping with the 10th anniversary celebrations, some of the aforementioned designers will explain the role that Vogue Talents had in the development of their careers with short movies which will be posted

The ‘Gossip Girl’ Reboot Is Coming: A Look Back at the Show’s Iconic Fashion Moments

A “Gossip Girl” reboot is officially in the works.
Seven years after it went off the air, the CW teen drama, famous for its over-the-top fashion, is being remade for HBO Max, a new streaming service launching in spring 2020, which will be home to HBO and WarnerMedia programming.
According to TVLine, the reboot will also be set in New York and will highlight how social media plays into the lives of elite Manhattan private school students. The show’s former executive producers — Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran — are returning for the reboot, but it has not yet been announced if the original series’ cast — including Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley, among others — will be returning.
“Gossip Girl” has long been admired as one of the most fashionable TV shows of the late Aughts, attracting some of the industry’s biggest names for cameos, including Rachel Zoe, Karlie Kloss, Cynthia Rowley and Tory Burch, among others. Costume designer Eric Daman dressed the cast in looks straight from the runway, creating the show’s most iconic fashion moments. The series’ last season in particular had a number of standout looks, including Meester’s character, Blair Waldorf, who wore an Elie

Camera Nazionale della Moda to Shake Up Milan Fashion Week Schedule

BREAKING THE ROUTINE: Camera Nazionale della Moda on Thursday revealed that changes will be made in the Milan Fashion Week schedule in the future. Some key Italian fashion players agreed to rotate slots in upcoming seasons to favor a more balanced calendar.
The decision came at the end of a roundtable of the fashion week work committee, which includes brands such as Bottega Veneta, Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Max Mara, Marni, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo and Versace.
“A strong spirit of sharing and synergy has already drawn up a more balanced calendar to give due weight to all of the fashion week days and thereby benefit the entire system and the city of Milan,” according to a statement released by the Italian fashion chamber.
As a result, in the upcoming edition of Milan Fashion Week running Sept. 17 to 23, Prada will stage its show in the afternoon of the first day of shows, Sept. 18, a Wednesday, instead of the afternoon slot on Thursdays the brand has usually held. Consequently, Gucci will postpone and stage its show on that Sunday, Sept. 22.
In the following season of women’s shows in 2020, Gucci will reprise its usual Wednesday spot, presenting its fall 2020 collection on

Derrill Osborn, Former Men’s Fashion Director for Neiman’s, Dies in Dallas

Derrill Radcliff Osborn, the flamboyant former men’s fashion director for Neiman Marcus, died in his Dallas home Monday night. He was 76.
The cause is not known at this time, but his death was confirmed by Nelson Bell, a pastor at the Highland Park Presbyterian Church. Bell said Osborn, who had been ill for some time, had planned his own service and a date for the memorial will be set shortly.
Osborn was descended from pioneers and ranchers who settled in New Mexico. After serving in the U.S. Army, he started his retail career working at Saks Fifth Avenue in 1964. In the decade he was employed there, he worked his way up from a salesman to a buyer. Osborn also served briefly as general manager of the Lew Ritter men’s specialty store in Beverly Hills before joining Neiman Marcus, where he worked as a buyer for six years before being named vice president of men’s tailored clothing. He retired from Neiman’s in 2002.
Osborn, who was known for his flashy personal style — flowing capes, bowler hats, carnations in his lapel and his ubiquitous beard and mustache — had an unerring eye for fashion that helped put Neiman’s men’s store on the

Launchmetrics’ Numbers Support Strength of Paris, Italian Men’s Fashion Weeks

It’s no surprise that Paris Men’s Fashion Week has been gaining in importance as New York and London continue to struggle. Marquee shows such as Louis Vuitton and Dior with their buzzy creative directors are overshadowing brands showing in other cities.
And while the Milan calendar is also experiencing some strain, the big Italian brands are still managing to hold their own against their Parisian counterparts.
Looking back at the spring 2019 season, Launchmetrics’ recently released State of Menswear report found that, thanks in large part to the debut of Virgil Abloh as creative director, Louis Vuitton was by far the most popular show of the season with 18.2 million media placements. That number outpaces Dior, the next most popular show, with 9.7 million MIVs, or media impact values, Launchmetrics’ proprietary measurement of media placement in all channels: social, print and online.
Third on the list is Versace, with 5 million MIVs, followed by Prada with 3.2 million, Valentino with 3.1 million, Giorgio Armani with 2.7 million, Off-White with 2.5 million, Yohji Yamamoto with 2.194 million, Boris Bidjan Saberi with 2.190 million and Balmain with 2 million.

Naomi Campbell Scoops BFC Icon Award, Plans U.K. Fashion for Relief Show

LONDON — The second half of 2019 belongs to Naomi Campbell, who will receive the Fashion Icon Award from the British Fashion Council in December and who plans to bring her Fashion for Relief charity runway show back to London in September.
Campbell will scoop the honor at the Fashion Awards 2019 on Dec. 2 at Royal Albert Hall. The BFC said she will be recognized for her contribution to the fashion industry, her career as a supermodel, her philanthropic work “and efforts for a more diverse and equal future, especially in Africa.”
The Fashion Icon Award celebrates outstanding contributions to the fashion industry. Last year, Campbell accepted the Fashion Icon award at the CFDA Fashion Awards.
“Naomi represents female empowerment, activism and glamour and her voice is used for great impact,” Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of the BFC, told a gathering at The Ritz in Piccadilly. “We look forward to celebrating with her in London in December.”
The Fashion Awards is the main fund-raiser for the BFC’s charitable and talent support network.
The award is as much for Campbell’s career as one of the first black models to achieve success on international runways and magazine covers, as it is for her charity work.

VFiles to Team With Depop for September Group Fashion Show

VFiles Runway has forged a partnership with Depop, a London-based fashion marketplace app and creative platform, to create an original group fashion show in September during New York Fashion Week.
Runway entries will be open to designers, stylists, models and photographers on vfiles.com from June 21 through July 21. Runway winners will be flown to New York, mentored by the VFiles and Depop teams as well as the mentor committee throughout the process, leading up to the fashion show.
The show will take place Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
According to Julie Anne Quay, founder of VFiles, an experience-based social networking platform that connects the creative global youth community, the group fashion show will feature musical performances. It is the 11th time VFiles has sponsored a group show, but the first time it is joining forces with Depop. While these shows generally take place twice a year, VFiles skipped last February.
“We’ve had various sponsors, but we never had a partner. What we’re most excited about is Depop’s vision to empower the future of fashion and global youth,” she said.
Confirmed mentors for this season are Rico Nasty, celebrity rapper; Simon Beckerman, founder of Depop, and Quay.

Fashion For Good Extends Reach in South Asia With Callout to Innovative Start-ups

DISRUPTORS WELCOME: The sustainability-minded Fashion for Good is expanding to South Asia with the launch of a regional innovation program.
In line with that, the Amsterdam-based group is in search of South Asia-based innovative start-ups “with disruptive sustainability solutions” for the fashion supply chain. Select innovators will have the chance to showcase their solutions, as part of Fashion for Good’s Innovation Day on Nov. 24, during Mercedes Benz Sri Lanka Fashion Week. They will also have access to the group’s global partners such as its founding partner the C&A Foundation, as well as corporate ones like C&A, Adidas, Kering and PVH Corp.
Fashion for Good’s managing director Katrin Ley said, “If you look at the problem that the fashion industry is facing, the main production of garments is happening in Asia. To improve the [carbon] footprint of the fashion industry, you need to be present in the [dominant] manufacturing countries. If you want to make a difference, you need to be able to implement those solutions locally. Given that those markets are also growing from a consumer perspective — all of the end-of-use, recycling, landfill problems that we’re seeing so much of now in North America and Europe — will at one

Muscle Beach Finds a Home in Fashion

LOS ANGELES — With so many brands vying for attention in the activewear space with their moisture wicking and four-way stretch, Yeah, I Work Out bypassed the noise by choosing to root its collections in the bodybuilding community — with some interesting results.
The fairly new line has found success among both the core of those who actually like to pump iron and the fashion set, with the help of retail partners Dover Street Market and Mr Porter.
Y,IWO on Friday will release its collaboration with industry veteran Ric Drasin, creator of the Gold’s Gym logo. The capsule launches at Dover Street Market’s Los Angeles store, where there will also be a Y,IWO installation inspired by the Muscle Beach Gym in Venice, Calif. Distribution will later expand to additional Dover Street Markets, with the line also sold through Y,IWO’s web shop.
The pieces draw from the archives of Drasin’s Eighties line Big Boy Clothing, using three designs: “Lifestyles of the Ripped and Aimless,” “Gym Bums of California” and “Club Sweat.” The designs will be featured on shorts, T-shirts, hoodies, muscle pants and sweatpants.

Futuristic Fibers Are Always in Fashion at Advanced Functional Fabrics of America

Fashion brands live and die based on service — whether that is online, in stores or through their factories.
However engrained that is in the industry, the forward-thinking Advanced Functional Fabrics of America wants insiders and consumers to recognize the service that technologically enhanced fabrics can provide. Running tights that illuminate when facing headlights, color-changing garments, cellphone-charging fibers, athletic wear equipped to share real-time physiological data and app-powered trade show bags that share personal information are among the Cambridge, Mass.-based group’s projects. Developing fabric as a service or fabric as software is part of its mission.
The concept of fabrics as a service as opposed to fabrics as a commodity is going to make the industry think about their business models in a very different way, according to AFFOA chief product officer Tosha Hays. “With subscription models like Rent The Runway, Harry’s and things like that, the consumer’s mind is shifting about how they actually purchase and use goods. The time is right for us to think of fabrics as a service,” she said, adding that services-enriched apparel is more appealing to consumers whether they are making purchases or renting “versus just buying it as a commodity and just throwing it out.”

Harry Connick Jr.’s Daughter Kate Has a True Blue Approach to Fashion, Modeling and Manufacturing

Lexus Charleston Fashion Week will gain some extra attention thanks to designer Kate Connick, whose Grammy-winning father Harry Jr. and model mother Jill Goodacre will be in the crowd.
South Carolina is familiar territory for the New York-based designer, who attended Furman University in Greenville for 18 months before later transferring to New York University’s Gallantin School of Individualized Study. In between the two, the former collegiate lacrosse player tore her ACL and decided to take a gap year. While recuperating at home in the Tristate area, she decided to branch out beyond school and sports to plant a New York-born brand.
As was the case when she participated in Greenville Fashion Week, Connick hopes to speak with attendees afterward to get to know them a bit and to see what brought them to the event. Rings representing people and ribbons representing shared ideas that tie everyone together were the starting points for her company, which was founded on the ideas of intimacy and connection. Creating an entirely New York-made collection is encapsulates that.

Olivier Saillard Stages Ode to Contemporary Men’s Fashion

FLORENCE — “For museums, it’s easier to present an evening dress from the Fifties by a house like Balenciaga or Dior, but it’s not so easy to provoke a dream with a gray costume,” said Olivier Saillard.
For his latest exhibition — titled “A Short Novel on Men’s Fashion, Thirty Years at Pitti Immagine Uomo” and produced in collaboration with the Fondazione Pitti Imagine Discovery to mark the 30th anniversary of Pitti Immagine Uomo — he set himself the challenge of curating a show based on how men actually dress. “I looked at the [museum’s] collection, evening dresses by Dior, Balenciaga, Vionnet, and finally I realized, we don’t have any jeans, T-shirts — ordinary clothes which are also poetic,” he said a preview of the exhibition on Tuesday.

British Label Stefan Cooke Finds Its Voice, and Flies Solo, at London Fashion Week Men’s

LONDON — Stefan Cooke and Jake Burt, cofounders of the label Stefan Cooke and finalists for the LVMH Prize, are about to stage their first solo runway show on June 9 during London Men’s Fashion Week, and they’re feeling the heat. “It feels surreal to be doing it by ourselves. It also feels intimidating,” said Cooke, who has witnessed a shower of accolades over the past two years.
The brand has won the H&M Design Award and the L’Oréal Professional Creative Award, but Cooke and Burt will now have to wait until September to see if they’ve scooped the LVMH Prize.
Having shown under the Fashion East umbrella, the duo have moved on from conceptual to more commercially focused designs. The label is stocked at Machine-A, Dover Street Market and Matchesfashion.com.
Their lines for spring/summer 2020 have a more relaxed silhouette than in past seasons, where trousers and shirts were tight and cropped. They will also be introducing a new bag concept, a category that’s been performing well for the company.

Faced with the prospect of buying her teenage daughter another expensive dress she’d wear only once or twice, Jen Forman created Charlotte’s Closet, a web site that offers Gen Z access to fashion’s sharing economy. Charlotte’s Closet rents, at up to 75 percent below retail, dresses and gowns for myriad social occasions, including proms, homecomings, bat mitzvahs, sweet sixteens and sorority formals.

Charlotte’s Closet competes in the teen space with start-up Haverdash, which charges $ 59 per month for an unlimited rental program. The adult apparel rental arena is getting more crowded with specialty retailers such as Loft and Urban Outfitters joining leaders Stitch-Fix and Rent the Runway.

Serena Williams Makes Powerful Fashion Statement at French Open

A year after having her tennis outfit banned at the French Open, Serena Williams had something to communicate through her look for the 2019 tournament — literally.
At the 2018 French Open, the 23-time Grand Slam winner made headlines for wearing a Nike compression catsuit to compete on the tennis court. While Williams wore the sleek one-piece outfit to help prevent blood clots that she developed after giving birth to her nine-month-old daughter, Olympia, the French Tennis Federation took issue with the fashion statement, banning the look in a new dress code issued after the match.
Undeterred from pushing the fashion boundaries, Williams, who has her own fashion label, returned to the French Open on Monday in an equally headline-making look, this time a Virgil Abloh-designed black-and-white Nike outfit with a jacket emblazoned with the words “champion,” “queen” and “goddess.” Many are seeing Williams’ sartorial choice as a rebuttal to the ban on her catsuit.

Less Is More at Australian Fashion Week’s Resort 2020 Collections

SYDNEY — Fashion-forward swimwear and a new vanguard of Australian footwear brands were among buyer highlights at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia’s resort 2020 showcase.
The event, which wrapped in Sydney over the weekend, attracted a small but influential contingent of international buyers — a number of them now MBFWA regulars, in part due to the event renaming itself in 2016 from its original spring focus to being a resortwear-dedicated collections showcase.
At 32, the number of shows and presentations on the schedule was down 18 percent from 2018 and some lamented the lack of support of the event from big local names like Dion Lee and Zimmermann, which now show in other locations, including during New York Fashion Week.
But an injection of new names and some spectacular off-site show locations got buyers talking.
This year, the latter included the historic, harborside precinct of The Rocks; both the north and south ends of Bondi Beach — with the Ten Pieces front row seated on the floor of the drained Bondi Icebergs swimming pool — and the Chinese Garden of Friendship in Darling Harbour, the location for Double Rainbouu’s walk-through presentation.

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.

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.
Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski executive board, said, “We are proud of our 17-year partnership with the CFDA Fashion Awards, including our support and recognition of 45 designers through the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent and the Swarovski Award for Positive Change. Swarovski looks forward to continued support of the next generation of American talent through our diverse range of fashion support programs.”
In 2017, CFDA established the Swarovski Award for Positive Change, which honors an American individual in the fashion industry who has made an impact on American communities and improves the welfare of others through civic responsibility, philanthropy

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

BEGINNER’S LUCK: Natacha Ramsay-Levi, creative director of Chloé, is to preside over the fashion jury of the 34th edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography, set to take place from April 25 to 29, WWD has learned.
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.

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.
Raw to Go, 56 Rue de Turenne, 75003. Open

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.”
