Rebecca Taylor to Offer Services to Help Time-Starved Customers

TIME SAVER: Need a manicure? Or a new hairstyle? Or just want to put your kids somewhere while you shop? Rebecca Taylor is offering harried women a time-saving shopping experience. Beginning this Saturday, Taylor’s boutique at 980 Madison Avenue in New York will offer customers complimentary babysitting, hairstyling, manicures and workout classes, among other things. Called Saturday Services, the Rebecca Taylor brand will strategically align with other brands such as Dry Bar, Pure Barre, Paint Box and Hello Sitter to offer these complimentary services on Saturdays to their customers. One service will be offered each week and a geo-targeted e-mail will go out to people in the neighborhood touting the particular service.
“We recognize that women are time-starved, and there are many demands on her weekend. Saturday Services was conceived so that our customer can maximize her time by aligning activations that would enhance the shopping experience and provide valuable services,” said Janice Sullivan, chief executive officer of Rebecca Taylor.
She said the company developed the program to not only bring traffic into the store, but to help their customers, who are juggling full-on careers and raising children. “Rather than do book signings or talk about finances, this makes her life easier,” said

Rebecca Taylor, Goop and The Glow Host Event Supporting She Should Run

STEPPING UP TO THE PLATE: Rebecca Taylor thinks America would be a different place if more women were in elected office.
The designer hosted a gathering Thursday afternoon in honor of International Women’s Day along with Jean Godfrey June of Goop and Violet Gaynor of The Glow at La Mercerie, the café, bakery and restaurant in the furniture and design store Roman and Williams Guild. The event supported She Should Run, a nonpartisan organization whose mission is to expand the talent pool of women running for office in the U.S.
“I’m very passionate about where politics are at the moment in America,” said Taylor, cofounder and chief creative officer of Rebecca Taylor. “I know so many women who would make contributions to politics. America would be a different place if you had more women in charge.
“I’m from New Zealand and we were the first country to give women the right to vote. We have a 37-year-old female prime minister,” she added.
Jean Godfrey June, beauty director of Goop — which sells Rebecca Taylor La Vie on its site — explained why they decided to support this event. “The brands are very aligned. The cause is what drew us to it. It’s an incredible

Rebecca Taylor Supports She Should Run

WOMEN LEADERS: In recognition of International Women’s Day, Rebecca Taylor is supporting She Should Run, a non-partisan organization whose mission is to expand the talent pool of women running for office in the U.S. by providing community, resources and growth opportunities for aspiring political leaders.
Their goal is to have 250,000 women running for elected office by 2030. Rebecca Taylor will be donating 10 percent of all product proceeds from her online store on Thursday to She Should Run.
“Supporting and celebrating women is something I’ve always been passionate about. Now more than ever, it’s so important that we continue to empower women and celebrate each other’s accomplishments,” said Taylor, cofounder and chief creative officer of Rebecca Taylor.
Explaining why the company decided to support the She Should Run organization, Taylor said, “We stand behind their mission to provide a network for women leaders looking to run for elected office and their belief that our society will benefit from different perspectives and experiences that women bring to leadership. This year we will also be launching a content series entitled RT Stories to continue to highlight women who inspire us.”
On Thursday, International Women’s Day, Taylor will cohost an event in SoHo with Violet Gaynor

Rebecca de Ravenel Plots Further Expansion

Rebecca de Ravenel, she of the tri-ball “Bon Bon” statement earring that set off a global trend and inspired innumerous knock-offs, is moving onward and upward from the spherical style.
The designer first introduced ready-to-wear last season — an outing that proved successful, with the clothing category growing to become half her business. All but one of her stockists picked up the ready-to-wear offering for spring. Come this month, the clothes will hit the racks of stores including Barneys New York, Fivestory, The Webster, Kirna Zabête and Matchesfashion.com.
This season she will expand upon on that collection — offering a new season’s worth of wares inspired by the concept of a confident woman sitting in The Carlyle Hotel’s library, awaiting an evening’s date at the opera. The collection will be shown to press tomorrow.
“When I start designing something, I always think about where a woman is sitting in a specific room. She is smart, she knows who she is, she is very in touch with her femininity — everything is quite covered because I like long things, but with shapes to accentuate the waist. The pants have boning in [them], owning to a certain sophistication,” de Ravenel said.
For the collection, de Ravenel

Rebecca Minkoff Apologizes for Late Shipments

Rebecca Minkoff experienced some major problems with late shipments and poor customer service this holiday season.
Minkoff, cofounder and creative director, posted an apology on Facebook and Instagram Friday afternoon saying she was “horrified to hear/see/read” from a number of loyal and vocal customers that the company let them down this holiday. “I’m sorry,” she wrote.
The designer blamed the late shipments and problems filling orders on a new third-party warehouse facility. “It has become increasingly clear that our new partner hasn’t kept up with our expectations, their contractual commitments, or our peak season customer demand,” she wrote. “We and they are working around the clock to identify and resolve open orders. We’re working with them to identify a solution to make sure that we have the opportunity to earn back our most valuable asset, the trust and support of our most loyal customers.”
Ironically, Minkoff built her 13-year-old brand on directly engaging with online consumers. The company has embraced technology such as using smart dressing rooms in its stores and selling connected clothing and accessories.
Neither Rebecca Minkoff nor Uri Minkoff, cofounder and chief executive officer, were available for comment Tuesday.
Numerous customers complained on Instagram and Facebook that their shipments didn’t arrive on

On Stage Kiss Helmer Rebecca Taichman

Through the years, I have had many discussions with people about directors. A director’s work is often tricky to review on the basis of one production — in the case of a first work, it is often unclear what is a director’s idea versus what is a stage direction in the script itself. It is also hard for people to separate actors’ choices from a director’s touch. But after a period of watching a director’s work, you get it. You know how good that director is. And I think Rebecca Taichman is very good.

The first production of hers I saw was Theresa Rebeck’s The Scene at Second Stage Theatre. While the play may have fallen apart a little, the production featured great performances (particularly by a then virtually unknown Anna Camp) and perfect staging. I have since seen many productions she has helmed, including Kirsten Greenidge’s Milk Like Sugar (Playwrights Horizons), Greenidge’s Luck of the Irish (LCT3), Sarah Ruhl’s Orlando (Classic Stage Company), Dark Sisters with music by Nico Muhly and libretto by Stephen Karam (MTG/Gotham Chamber Opera at John Jay College), David Adjmi’s Marie Antoinette (Soho Rep.) and, most recently, Ruhl’s Stage Kiss (Playwrights again). Out of all of these titles, I only didn’t like her work on Marie Antionette. But, then, I don’t know why anyone thought staging a scaled down Marie Antionette was a good idea. I do not blame Taichman; I didn’t get any of it, from the script on.

Generally Taichman’s work is characterized by a unique understanding of the proper tone for a given piece. She doesn’t make her productions overly glib or cynical; she tailors her work to the material, as a director should. If you are in New York, this is the last week to catch Taichman’s impeccably breezy work on Stage Kiss. If you are in San Diego, you can see her production of J.B. Priestley’s drama Time and the Conways at the Old Globe. (The play, which Taichman described as “extraordinary,” is a staple in the UK, but is rarely done in the US.)

In a recent conversation with me, Taichman stated she enjoys directing comedy and drama equally. “One of the gifts I’ve been given, is that my work can span genres and across different tones and styles,” Taichman said. “I can do new plays, opera and Shakespeare. I find they all feed each other. I love doing a lot of different kinds of work.”

Stage Kiss, which received mostly positive reviews, marks Taichman’s fourth time staging a work by Ruhl. “I love working with Sarah,” explained Taichman. “I feel we sort of share a dream space somehow. The type of epic, surreal questions she is asking are the questions that dog me. I love her sense of theatricality. I love how she mashes up the everyday and infuses it with a mystique.”

Taichman will reunite with Ruhl this fall for the world premiere of The Oldest Boy at Lincoln Center’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. Taichman said the play is about Buddhism and is more similar to the world Ruhl presented in Eurydice than it is to Stage Kiss.

Taichman is also gearing up to direct Familiar by Danai Gurira (who co-wrote and starred in In the Continuum off-Broadway and is well-known for playing Michonne on the AMC drama series The Walking Dead), scheduled to run at Yale Repertory Theatre from January 30 through February 21, 2015. From that it is onto Rehearsing Vengeance, a play she has been developing with Paula Vogel for years. Rehearsing Vengeance, based on the life of the play God of Vengeance, will premiere at La Jolla Playhouse summer 2015. I also hope one day to see GrooveLily’s Sleeping Beauty Wakes, which Taichman is working on with the band. I missed my opportunity before, but am holding out hope.

For now though, Taichman is all about seeing Time and the Conways through previews and bidding adieu to Stage Kiss. There are only eight performances left for you to go laugh at Stage Kiss.

“There is a particular delight in hearing audience laughter,” she said. “There is a particular joy in bringing laughter into people’s lives.”
