CFDA and NYCEDC Highlight Graduate Fashion Collections

The CFDA and New York City Economic Development Corp. earlier this week held the Fashion Future Graduate Showcase, a three-day showcase of design talent from some of the top fashion schools in the U.S. at Industria Studios. Collections by 53 graduates from schools including Academy of Art University, California College of the Arts, FIT, Kent State University, Parsons, Pratt, Rhode Island School of Design and SCAD were exhibited July 9 and 10, with the top four collections presented on July 11. The students selected for Wednesday’s presentation included Zhouyi Li of the Academy of Art University, Taliah Leslie of Pratt, and Britt Luttio and Peng Ye of Parsons.
All four students took the conceptual route, with Li working her garments with three-dimensional geometric shapes inspired by Richard Serra. Luttio worked with the concept of identity. “Within our persona we have multiple identities,” she said. “How I am in this space is not how I’m going to be with my lover or with my mom.” Her collection featured transformative pieces with a definitive Nineties attitude, that was influenced by things from her childhood — Victoria’s Secret and Betsey Johnson. Ye based his collection on the word 刹那, which represents the shortest accountable

“With Rarity, we wanted to ensure that our curated selection of rare finds showcases that ‘rare product’ can take many forms,” said Michael Ward, managing director at Harrods.
“Further to this, the way in which we consume products has taken a seismic shift the last decade. With the rise of digital, owning and purchasing goods can be instantaneous, but comes with the risk of increasing homogeneity. So we wanted to ensure that customers had a sensory experience to compliment

Swim and Active Collective Shows Highlight 2018 Trends, Brisk Business

Swimwear and activewear buyers got a leg up on the action and preview of spring 2018 trends during last week’s Swim Collective and Active Collective shows, which wrapped up on Tuesday in Huntington Beach, Calif., ahead of Miami Swim Week.
The shows, which normally take place about two weeks after Miami and in January, moved up on the calendar for the first time due to venue construction during their regularly scheduled dates, giving buyers a chance to concentrate on brands within a smaller show footprint before heading to the Miami sprawl of four shows.
The boutique-like shows, which featured about 222 swim and 200 activewear exhibitors ranging from Gottex to Reebok and emerging brands from Australia and Hawaii, are a key stop for regional buyers as well as majors such as Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.
“The theories run different from brand to brand. Here it is orders and in Miami you may be working your advertisements and events. Some are rolling out a specific launch in Miami, but they are able to pre-line with their key buyers here so they can narrow down their lines,” said Roy Turner, senior vice president and show director for organizer Emerald Expositions.
Turner said the need

Designers Highlight Androgyny for Men’s Spring 2016

“Men’s wear” is starting to sound like an antiquated term.
Silk blouses, knit skirts and hip-hugging tunics are all part of the picture for the spring 2016 season, accentuating the ways that men’s collections are becoming more gender fluid than ever.
Designers Alessandro Michele at Gucci, Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent and Jonathan Anderson were among those flying the flag for a new young style inspired by Millennials — a generation that appears to have cast off gender labels like last season’s Zara duds.
And all this coincides with a moment when the transgender community — thank you, Caitlyn Jenner — is experiencing unprecedented visibility.
“We are living in a transgender moment,” said Riki Wilchins, a transgender activist and author of three books on gender theory. “Gender roles are being challenged, and they’re being challenged in fashion. Fashion isn’t just reflecting it, fashion is helping to lead it, it’s profound and it’s here to stay.”
Even before the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in June, a revolution was playing out on social media. “I think Millennials are definitely pushing this change. Millennials are much more comfortable with gender nonconformity and gender queerness,” Wilchins said.
Celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart and Cara Delevingne are

20 Photos That Highlight The Beautiful Diversity Of Plus-Size Bodies

Corissa Enneking is here to remind everyone that there is a lot more diversity in the plus-size community than the few plus-size women we see in magazines and on the runway.

In June, the fat-positive writer and fashion blogger created a body-positive campaign that represented plus-size bodies of all shapes and sizes.

Although mainstream media has only recently incorporated plus-size women and plus-size fashion, the type of plus-size bodies that are featured are mostly “white, under 30, on the smaller side of fat, able-bodied and evenly proportioned,” Enneking wrote on her blog, Fat Girl Flow.

Enneking created a callout asking plus-size women to submit images of themselves to illustrate the different body types that the term “plus size” actually encompasses. The results are a diverse range of beautiful plus-size bodies.


Enneking explained why she created the project to The Huffington Post. “It’s easy to look at a size 14 plus-size model and celebrate them for their curviness. And while I applaud anyone who cares about body positivity, the people who are really making waves and moving this community forward are the ones we often don’t celebrate.”

“It’s the people who continue to feel under represented that keep us thinking of how to be inclusive, and what fat positivity means,” Enneking told HuffPost. “It’s those people who continue to challenge our thoughts about being ‘acceptable’ in society who are really pushing the status quo… I want to help those people’s voices be heard, because they are saying some amazing things!”

On her blog, Enneking wrote that she wants to remind all fat women that their bodies are “worthy of representation.” “Being fat is not exclusive to one gender, sexual orientation, or race, and it doesn’t discriminate based on your physical or mental capacities,” she wrote. “Being fat is something people across cultures can experience, and even people who are not fat can identify with body image issues.”

Preach, lady.

Scroll below to see 20 stunning women who rock beautiful plus-size bodies.

Head over to Enneking’s website Fat Girl Flow to read more about the diversity of plus-size bodies.
