Several arts-related shows and exhibitions are cropping up in fashion-friendly places.
As part of an ongoing effort to showcase artistic programs, Spring Place will be staging “Infoxication” Monday night.
The 50-minute multidisciplinary performance will feature art, music, dance and technology. The theme is technology’s presence in our lives. Infoxication is the latest arts-related collaboration at Spring, with the American Ballet Theatre and the Water Miller Center being others. Monday’s will be the first full production, and the largest one to date, with more than 20 collaborators, according to Spring Place’s art director, Roya Sachs. The full immersive experience includes product support from Google — Pixelbooks and Pixel phones. “It’s definitely in the vein of trying to create these more impactful and interactive programming and performances,” Sachs said.
The four-part experience is meant to take audience members on a visual, physical and mental journey. Ticket holders will learn the story of “waking, working, wanting and withdrawing.”
Collaborators include choreographer Dusan Tynek, a world premier composition by Danielle Eva Schwob, live body art by Heather Hansen, and performances by PubliQuartet and cellist Inbal Segev.

Andrea Lieberman, Petra Flannery Team for A.L.C. Dinner

The flurry of Los Angeles store openings continues at Palisades Village, the latest being A.L.C., the contemporary brand founded by former stylist Andrea Lieberman in 2008. Lieberman teamed with her former assistant and current super stylist Petra Flannery to host a small dinner at The Draycott on Thursday for her close friends Liz Friedlander, Jennifer Meyer, Erin Foster plus stylists Karla Welch, Erica Cloud and Annabelle Harron. Draycott owner Marissa Hermer was also in the mix, as was actress Olivia Hamilton.
“A small gathering is more my speed,” said Lieberman, a Westside resident. “I admire all these women so much and am so thankful for their support all these years.” Flannery has similar praise for her old boss and good friend. “I’ve learned so much from her, and how she puts her brains into her business. Andrea is proof that you can do it all — family, work, friends.”

Marc Jacobs Adds Olympia Le-Tan to Design Team

PARIS — Followers of Olympia Le-Tan will have seen that in August the designer vacated her Paris apartment to move to New York. And she’s settled in fast.
The French accessories designer, known for her whimsical hand-embroidered book clutches, has joined the design team of Marc Jacobs, WWD has learned. Her title could not immediately be learned.
A company spokesman confirmed the hire, while noting there are no plans to revive the Marc by Marc Jacobs line, last helmed by Luella Bartley and accessories genius Katie Hillier. “We are excited to have Olympia join Marc’s design team. We have a talented group of designers and look for people who bring new sensibilities and ideas to help bring Marc’s vision to life,” he said.
The move marks a new chapter for Le-Tan, who in July announced on Instagram that she was leaving the brand that carries her name. Le-Tan had quietly dropped off the Paris Fashion Week calendar last fall after being placed into receivership. Though Le-Tan never divulged details, it is understood she is losing the rights to her name after parting ways with Gregory Bernard, the French producer behind films including “Lagerfeld Confidential,” who helped her set up her house in 2009.

Yoox Net-a-porter, Bloomsbury Team on Fashion Video Archive Project

THE ARCHIVE COMES ALIVE: Yoox Net-a-porter is investing in education and the younger generations through a partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing that will make rare fashion-show footage available to the educational market.
YNAP has worked with Bloomsbury to digitize its runway archive collection between 1979 and 2003, before shows were automatically digitized. The result is more than 3,000 videos and hundreds of hours of footage that offer a window into fashion history and a new way for students to examine the evolution of the catwalk over the years, key collections and individual designers’ work.
The footage is supported by scholarly articles and video descriptions to make the archive easily discoverable. All accompanying content has been curated by Dr. Valerie Steele, fashion historian and director of the museum at Fashion Institute of Technology.
“We have always known the value of the archive to the educational community. It provides a great link to the future,” said Tara Tierney, YNAP’s digital collections curator.
Kathryn Earle, managing director at Bloomsbury Digital Resources, said the footage highlights the impact of some of the most influential designers of the period including the Antwerp Six, Rei Kawakubo and Hussein Chalayan.

Tommy Hilfiger, Lewis Hamilton Team for Capsule Collection

Lewis Hamilton, British Formula One racing driver and four-time Formula One World Champion, is gearing up to introduce a men’s capsule collection in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. They will introduce the first Tommy x Lewis collection for fall retailing.
The news comes a month after Hamilton was named a global brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger Men’s, starting this spring, as reported. Hilfiger is owned by PVH Corp.
Hamilton revealed the collection logo to fans at an exclusive event in Shanghai on Wednesday, putting his own stamp on the Tommy Hilfiger flag. The Tommy x Lewis flag was unveiled in an art installation that shared the inspirations behind the design, including street art influences and projections of Hamilton’s own body art.

The collection will be revealed to editors on May 7.

Rugby-Inspired Aedelhard Wants Men to Join Its Team

The new men’s wear brand Aedelhard believes rugby teaches important values and lessons to its participants, and has aligned itself with the sport. That the game can be intensely competitive and at times violent is not lost on the brand.
“Beneath the seeming barbarism and occasional debauchery often associated with rugby lives a sport rooted in respect and a strict code of conduct,” Aedelhard declares on its web site. “It’s a game that instills teamwork and discipline.”
The sport has given the world one of the most enduring pieces of fashion — the rugby shirt. It’s that side of rugby that Aedelhard is tapping into, the “sport, intellect, sophistication and gentlemanly conduct — all derived from the game,” said Darrell Kopke, Aedelhard’s cofounder and chief executive officer.

“Dressing well is a form of good manners, and we’re simplifying the process with pieces that are easy to combine, accessibly priced, well-made and designed with intention,” added Michael Nguyen, cofounder and creative director.

Aedelhard wants to disrupt the technical apparel market with elevated, classically tailored and functional performance apparel. The company considers its pricing disruptive, with trousers retailing for $ 150, blazers, $ 380 and shirting, $ 120. “We’re bringing tailoring for the masses,” said Kopke.

BEEFING UP: Net-a-porter is making strategic personnel appointments in an effort to reinforce its accessories business.
The e-commerce site has named Nayla Touma as its buying director for shoes, handbags and accessories. Touma joins Net-a-porter from Bergdorf Goodman, where she worked as division merchandise manager for footwear.
She will report to Elizabeth von der Goltz, Net-a-porter’s global buying director — also a Bergdorf Goodman alum.
Touma is to begin her new role at the end of February, with plans to relocate to London in April. Prior to Bergdorf Goodman, Touma held various positions with Bloomingdale’s.
Her hire is just part of an effort by Net-a-porter to bulk up its accessories buying operation. The site has promoted Billie Faricy-Hyett to the role of buying manager for handbags, accessories and beauty. She previously served as senior buyer for handbags, accessories, fashion and demi-fine jewelry. Additionally, Thalia Tserevegou has been elevated to the role of buying manager for shoes from her previous role as senior buyer for shoes.
Von der Goltz said of these changes in a statement: “Reinforcing our core team is essential to us shaping and developing these growing areas of our business while adopting a progressively tactical approach to the integral categories of shoes, handbags

Giorgio Armani to Dress the Italian Olympic Team Again

WINTER GAMES: Giorgio Armani is back in the Olympics.
The designer strengthened its partnership with the Italian National Olympics Committee, or CONI, unveiling the EA7 Emporio Armani collection created for the 2018 Italian Olympic and Paralympic teams competing in the upcoming Winter Games, running Feb. 9 to 25 in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Armani first sponsored Italy’s team at the London Olympic Games in 2012 and consequently supplied the official sports uniforms at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics and at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
At the upcoming Games, the EA7 modular wardrobe supplied to each athlete will include a technical-fabric ski tracksuit and mantle; a long down coat; a jumper; a polo fleece shirt, and cotton trousers, among others. Garments will be crafted in midnight blue and feature details recalling the Italian flag’s signature green-white-red colors, in addition to the EA7 logo.

The company revealed the news Friday, offering few details beyond that. It’s unclear what size range the collection would encapsulate or at what pricing. This isn’t the first time Parker has worked with Gap Inc., having previously appeared in campaigns for the company’s Gap brand in the past.
Gap’s Old Navy launched a test of a new kids’ box service last month, looking to ride on the growing trend in subscription models in the vein of Stitch Fix, Birchbox and Trunk Club. Old Navy’s Super Box sends parents a box of six items four times annually. The box is priced at $ 69.99.
Children’s is a lucrative business with more and more fashion brands seeing children’s as a strategic move to tap an ever-growing market or, simply, the next logical step in a company’s own evolution. Among the more recent entrants into kids this year has been direct-to-consumer brands Reformation and For Love and Lemons with its Lil’ Lemons baby and toddler line. Last

Blushington and Armarium Team to Simplify Dressing for Partygoers

REASON TO CELEBRATE: With the holidays closing in, Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge has teamed with online rental site Armarium to make getting out the door to a party a little easier.
Blushington’s professional makeup artists and Armarium’s stylists have joined forces to coordinate makeup and fashion looks. Through the end of the month, revelers can get 20 percent off any Armarium rental and Blushington appointment in any of its two locations in New York City and Los Angeles or in its Dallas boutique. As a primer of sorts, there are emerald, diamond, ruby or sapphire options with specific product suggestions, makeup instructions and coordinating fashion looks.
Beauty authorities and influencers like Byrdie’s beauty editor Maya Allen, DJ Alex Merrell, model Louisa Warwick and Mrs. New York Alice Lee have been recruited to help curate the aforementioned jewel-toned options. In charge of Ruby, Lee chose a $ 600 Marchesa tiered gown in corded lace and a $ 150 Judith Leiber couture glossy polished gold clutch. Her makeup tips call for a natural bronze eye, think brow liner and lashes with a red lip.
Blushington’s chief executive officer Natasha Cornstein said, “Blushington and Armarium share a passion for providing access to celebrity level experiences for everyday

Woolmark and Facetasm Team for Capsule Collections

A WOOL PAIR: Facetasm and the Woolmark Company are teaming for two capsule collections, kicking off a relationship between the Japanese brand and textile company intended to last beyond the collaboration and foster ties between the Australian wool industry and Japan’s fashion sector.
Facetasm designer and founder Hiromichi Ochiai, who visited Australia to learn about merino wool production, will become the first “global wool ambassador from Japan,” said Woolmark managing director Stuart McCullough in a statement. McCullough noted that the country represents an important market in terms of creativity and quality, and that the partnership was meant to expand merino wool “beyond traditional tailoring.”
“I believe merino wool is an essential ingredient for the brand to move onto the next step in its creation,” said Ochiai, who spent time with sheep farmers on his visit. The first capsule collection will be shown in January in Paris.

Fendi, Rimowa Team on Suitcase

MILAN — Fendi has teamed with Rimowa to create a suitcase that blends the expertise of the companies, both under the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton umbrella.
The sleek aluminum multiwheel suitcase includes luxurious Fendi details such as the Cuoio Romano leather. Available as a cabin case, it features the double F logo with a brushed effect, which changes depending on the light. Fendi’s touch is also seen in the black Cuoio Romano leather handles on the top and side, along with the web belt that runs across the case in tones of yellow and a touch of black with the FF logo. A modern Neoprene black lining with a black-on-black embossed FF logo characterizes the interior of the case. The Flex-Divider system is individually adjustable, making the item exceptionally functional. The suitcase will be available in selected Fendi and Rimowa boutiques and on Fendi.com as of Nov. 27.
“At Rimowa, we stand for design, durability and craftsmanship,” said the German company’s chief executive officer Alexandre Arnault. “A large part of our clients come from the fashion industry.

Oak Ridge Boys Team With Hart Schaffner Marx on New Suit Offering

The Oak Ridge Boys are doing their part to promote American-made manufacturing and have tapped Hart Schaffner Marx to create a new line of suits under their American Made Collection moniker.
The country music group joined Liberty Legends USA, a program created in 2015 by American businesses to promote products created in the U.S. The program started with the Gatlin Brothers USA Collection of Western jackets and dress jeans made by The Sewell Cos.
Both lines are available on the Mill Town Mercantile web site. Mill Town Mercantile is the fulfillment arm of the Mill Town Music Hall, West Georgia’s largest concert and entertainment venue that opened in 2012 in Bremen, Ga.
The American Made Collection consists of two fits: the Chicago cut, a traditional two-button silhouette in worsted wool with flat or pleated pants, and the trimmer New York cut, a trimmer two-button silhouette. Both retail for $ 795 and made-to-measure is also offered as an option for both suits and sport coats. American Made was the title of one of the group’s biggest hits from 1983 and the members are nearly always seen dressed in suits.

A$AP Ferg, Agolde Team on Unisex Collection

For Agolde’s second collaboration with hip-hop artist A$ AP Ferg, the two went unisex and looked beyond denim.
“It’s a true collaboration,” said Agolde creative director Karen Phelps. “In the modern-day approach to how people dress, it’s an eclectic, relevant collection which I feel not only resonates with the brand, but also resonates with the consumer.”
The 12-piece collection for fall includes jeans, graphic T-shirts, a tracksuit and outerwear ranging from military-inspired styles to sherpa jackets. The collection retails from $ 58 to $ 350 and launches exclusively at The Webster Miami and The Webster’s online shop on Thursday.
All of the pieces are made in Los Angeles and involved Ferg visiting the company’s design studio to talk backgrounds and influences with Phelps.
“He was a great partner from an aesthetic point of view and he’s interested in design,” Phelps said. “I’ve worked on a lot of collaborations, so for me it was unique in that Ferg has training in design, so there was definitely creative input, which I think is important.”
Ferg’s father operated a clothing boutique in Harlem while Ferg was growing up. The artist later went on to art school where he studied fashion design and launched the line Devoni Clothing in 2005. He later

Saks, Sony Team Up With ‘The Emoji Movie’

EMOJI MOMENT: “We love partnering with of-the-moment pop culture experiences,” said John Antonini, director of stores, New York Metro, at Saks Fifth Avenue, who was standing on the red carpet outside the Saks flagship Monday night. He was pointing to “The Emoji Movie” windows that were installed along 50th Street — so appropriate, considering it was World Emoji Day. “They really bring emojis to life,” he said.
“Anytime we can bring technology into the windows is exciting,” he added, pointing out that customers can interact, play and dance with the emojis.
Saks has partnered with brands such as Jason Wu, Mackage, Del Toro Footwear, Orlebar Brown, Gents and Havianas to create “The Emoji Movie” merchandise, ranging from swimsuits and bomber jackets to sweaters (with removable emojis) and flip-flops.
“The Emoji Movie,” which opens July 28, has a pop-up on the fifth floor in the Collective, and items are scattered throughout the store in both the New York flagship and Beverly Hills store. The merchandise is geared to men, women and children.

Carrie Underwood Is Officially the Biggest Nashville Predators Fan: All the Ways She’s Supported Her Husband’s Team So Far

The Nashville Predators are hanging on to their Stanley Cup hopes tonight, facing off against the Pittsburgh Penguins in game six in Music City at 8 p.m. ET.

One person who will most certainly be there, Instagramming the whole thing? Carrie Underwood. The country star — whose husband Mike Fisher is the team captain — has been very vocally supporting her team ever since the guys started their playoff run on April 13. Here, a look back at her best moments in navy and gold.

For game 1 of the western conference first round, Underwood showed her mani/pedi pride

Days later, it was all about the hat

And she Instagrammed all the craziness from inside the Bridgestone Arena during game 3

By their May 3 game against the St. Louis Blues, the Preds were “on fire,” she wrote

She kept her tee on for a May 7 performance with Luke Bryan, too

Her son Isaiah, 2, joined in the fun for the Preds’ May 7 win against the Blues

Good luck? On May 16, her song “The Fighter” was played during a game against the Anaheim Ducks

Another game, another great hat

Similarly another game, another great mani

The super-supportive wife was “Ready” for the Preds’ May 22 game against the Ducks, which her team won, sending Nashville to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time ever

It helps to have support!

And she was elated to watch the guys accept the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl

When traveling, Underwood is sure to bring one essential: that ‘Smash’ hat

Her destination: Pittsburgh, for game one of the Stanley Cup Final

Her June 3 regram had pretty much the sweetest caption ever: “I love this man more than words can express. I am beyond proud of him…he is an amazing man of God. He loves his family, his friends and his job. He deserves nothing but he best in this world, because he gives nothing but his best to it! I am amazed every single day at the kind of human he is! I love you, baby! #ProudWife #Blessed #MikeFisher #GoPreds #StanleyCup”

She got that roar down

Back in Nashville on June 4, Carrie & co. were pumped for the Preds win

An important milestone amid the craziness of the Cup: Fisher’s 37th birthday! Underwood marked the June 5 occasion with another sweet Insta post, writing, “Happy birthday to this handsome hunk! I’ll never forget the day he told me he was asked to wear the “C.” I was so proud on that day and I’m even more proud now to see him play in the #StanleyCupFinals He’s definitely the only FISH in the “C” for me!”

Yes, it was just days before the CMT Music Awards, but she was happy to be out celebrating

With her sisters-in-law and mother-in-law at the last game in Nashville

We can’t wait to see how crazy Carrie goes tonight! Catch the game on NBC.

Girls On Soccer Team Cut Hair To Support Teammate Mistaken For Boy

Nine girls on a youth soccer team in Nebraska cut their hair on Thursday in solidarity with their 8-year-old teammate who has found herself at the center of a national controversy.

“They care,” Mili Hernandez, the girl at the center of the debate, told the Omaha World-Herald.

Last week, Mili, who sports a pixie-style haircut, made national headlines when her family told numerous media outlets that her soccer team had been disqualified from the Springfield Soccer Club tournament after their daughter was mistaken for a boy.

“They only did it because I look like a boy,” Mili told local news station WOWT 6.

The Springfield Soccer Club, which organizes the tournament, says Mili’s hair had nothing to do with what happened. They say that the girl was listed on the team’s roster as “male,” which is what ultimately led to the disqualification.

But Mili still believes her hair played a role. Her family said that they showed officials identification and insurance cards to prove is legally recognized as female, but it didn’t make a difference.

“They just weren’t listening,” Mili told local CBS affiliate KMTV. “They said I looked like a boy.”

And tournament director Lanyard Burgett later gave a completely different reason for the disqualification. He told The Washington Post that the real cause was an issue related to teams illicitly swapping players, and had nothing to do with Mili.

“The male player on a female roster was discovered in the middle of working through the player swapping issue and has been incorrectly identified as the reason for dismissal,” Burgett said.

In any case, the devotion of Mili’s teammates to their friend is clear. Photos and video (above) show the girls proudly displaying their cut-off ponytails on the field.

“It was scary,” 10-year-old Erika Ortiz told the World-Herald. “But it made me feel good to support Mili.”

Corneliani to Focus on Americas, Strengthens Management Team

MILAN — Corneliani is focusing on the Americas, building its executive management team to further develop business in the region.
The Italian men’s wear company has tapped Maurizio Mantovani as its Americas chief executive officer, and he is charged with boosting the brand’s wholesale network and its retail business. He reports to Corneliani ceo Paolo Roviera. Most recently, Mantovani was senior vice president of operations and outlets at Ermenegildo Zegna in New York, leveraging 20 years of experience at the men’s wear group holding different roles in the North American division. Roviera, who joined Corneliani from Pal Zileri in September, is also a Zegna alum.
Corneliani has also appointed Sean Hieter senior vice president of sales. Hieter was previously vice president of Robert Graham Designs. His strong  relations with retailers will be key in growing the brand’s business through department stores and high-end specialty stores, the company said.
“North America accounts for less than 10 percent of sales and it is only a wholesale business,” Roviera said. “This can’t be. We aim for the region to represent more than 20 percent of total.”
Roviera said a web of relations already stands with “key players,” from Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus to Nordstrom, but that

Indochino Bolsters Management Team

Indochino, a Vancouver-based omnichannel men’s wear brand, has beefed up its management team.
The company has brought Randy Binning on board as vice president of retail operations and promoted Dean Handspiker to vice president of design, product and showroom development.
Binning has spent the last 15 years at Guess Inc., where he has served as both director of West Coast North America and then director of stores for Canada. At Indochino, he will be charged with leading a consistent customer experience across all locations and work to ensure continued profitability as the company expands.
Handspiker will be responsible for the overall look and vision of the Indochino products and will oversee the seasonal design of the brand’s suits, shirts and accessories. He will also work to ensure a consistent message in each of the company’s showrooms.
“Building a world-class team of dedicated, highly skilled and forward-thinking people has been a top priority for us in the past couple of years and we are thrilled to welcome Dean and Randy to our senior management team simultaneously,” said Drew Green, chief executive officer.
In April, Indochino opened three showrooms in Western Canada, bringing the total to 13. There are also five additional showrooms planned for the U.S.

College Lacrosse Team Takes Field Using Donald Trump Speech

Some college teams take to the field backed by a fight song, but not the Adelphi University Lacrosse Team in Garden City, New York.

They’ve been taking to the field backed by the strains of this Donald Trump speech: 

“In all of our cities and in all of our towns, I make this promise: We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again! God bless you and good night. I love you!”

The team’s unique choice in fight music came to light on Wednesday after Barstool Sports posted a video on Twitter and Instagram.

Although Trump’s presidency has been polarizing, team coach Gordon Purdie insists his players aren’t trying to make a statement.

“The men’s lacrosse team has traditionally chosen patriotic music for its pre-game warm-up,” Purdie said in a statement to the New York Daily News. “It was not intended to provoke or be taken as a political statement. We’re sorry if anyone was offended.”

An opposing coach told the paper the Adelphi Panther have been using the Trump speech as their coming out music since April, but declined further comment.

Adelphi athletic director Danny McCabe told Newsday that the Trump speech doesn’t violate any of rules regarding warm-up music.

“The men’s lacrosse team’s regular-season pregame warm-up music is selected as a team and approved for use so long as they do not contain vulgarity or inappropriate subject matter,” McCabe said. “The songs they proposed and used this season meet those guidelines. As such, we are obliged to follow the policy.”

Not everyone agrees with the team’s choice, based on Twitter reactions.

Regardless of the reaction, the team seems to be doing well with a 14-3 record on the season and the top seed in the NCAA tournament that begins on Saturday.

The New School’s Parsons and Panasonic Team for Wearable Prototypes at SXSW

Students at The New School’s Parsons School of Design and Panasonic Corp. have joined forces to unveil two wellness wearable prototypes at SXSW Interactive in Austin, Tex., next week.
The MFA candidates and undergrads worked with Game Changer Catapult, Panasonic’s innovation acceleration team, to finesse the Göbie bracelet, which is designed to trigger impromptu opportunities to play. Using haptic feedback, gesture recognition and a visual LED language, the device encourages users to interact in person. Its connected app recognizes when other Göbie users are nearby and “prompts a spontaneous play experience that fosters a sense of community no matter the location.”
Panasonic linked up the students with business leaders, engineers and a UX designer in its acceleration team. The aspiring designers are from Parsons’ MFA Industrial Design and MFA Design and Technology programs as well as the one for the BBA Strategic Design and Management programs. They decided on wearables that are meant to enhance social interaction and to help wearers catch a better night’s sleep.

Models Team Up To Demand Diversity At Fashion Week

At this point, there’s no honest way to talk about fashion week without also talking about diversity. While the mainstream is slowly but surely widening its standards of beauty, high fashion runways are noticeably taking longer to adjust. 

Now the pressure to become more inclusive feels especially palpable. On Tuesday, 43 models wrote an open letter and an accompanying petition demanding diversity and safe health practices at New York Fashion Week later this month. As of Wednesday morning, over 1,000 other industry insiders and members of the public have signed it.

Their “#DearNYFW” letter follows the publication of research that confirms what many people in the industry already know to be true: “that unhealthy weight control practices are a serious problem in the industry. Too often, models are being pressured to jeopardize their health and safety as a prerequisite for employment.”

Published in partnership with the National Eating Disorders Association and the industry advocacy group Model Alliance, the letter and petition also call on designers to prioritize diversity ― an area that’s improved in recent seasons but is still a glaring problem.

The demand is not specific to the inclusion of varied bodies, the letter notes, stating its authors will be looking out for “diversity of race, size, age, and gender status, and we hope to see diversity within and across all of those categories.”

Body positivity advocate Iskra Lawrence, who has three million followers on Instagram, is among the 43 models who have signed the letter. The hope is that power in numbers helps spread the message.

“Through our social media platforms, which collectively reach millions of people, we will recognize the industry leaders who step up to this challenge,” the letter reads.

Also on the list are Sabina Karlsson, a model who walked in the Chromat and Christian Siriano shows last season, and Madison Schill, who left the modeling world in 2013 and is producing the upcoming body image documentary “Straight/Curve.”

“I remember being afraid of going into my agency to grab comp cards during the hectic casting season ― afraid my hips would be too big, or that the steps I’d been advised to take in restricting my development would have shown up on my skin overnight,” Schill told The Huffington Post. “I don’t want other girls to have to go through that, I want them to realize that health is never something we should deny ourselves in order to book a show, and that they can be appreciated and loved and beautiful when they aren’t depriving themselves, too.” 

Here’s hoping designers keep the message in mind for many seasons to come.

Lenzing and Jeanologia Team on Laser Tech Study

Lenzing Fibers has created a technical brochure in conjunction with Spanish textile finishing specialist Jeanologia detailing the advantages when using the latest laser-laundry technologies in conjunction with Tencel fabrics and garments.
The laundry of apparel and fabrics in the manufacturing process has long been a low-tech industry driven by manual labor and poor environmental standards, but the industry is starting to turn to technology to reduce labor costs and drive product development and environmental thinking.
Under the banner of “Light Sensitive,” Lenzing and Jeanologia have conducted a study to demonstrate the advantages of laser technology when using Tencel fabrics.
“Effective laser marking requires quick and effective dye removal, clear image definition, sharp image outline and smooth gray-scale transition,” said Begoña García, senior technologist at Jeanologia. “Fabrics that contain Tencel have the desired characteristics and are the perfect fabrics to work with laser.”
Jeanologia works with many textile and apparel companies focusing on industrial solutions in garment finishing, developing under sound principles of ecology, efficiency and ethics.
“The relationship between Tencel and Jeanologia dates back to 1994 and between then and now we have participated in many different projects together,” said Michael Kininmonth, project manager at Lenzing. “The relationship is such that they now are highly

This Cheesy Chorizo Dip Will Be There to Console You If Your Team Loses

This football season, we’ve partnered with Taste of the NFL and their favorite tailgating experts to share great game-day recipes for an even greater cause.  Join these chefs in raising awareness and funds for hunger relief across the country by taking the Kick Hunger Challenge with your favorite football team and making a donation to their local food bank. And be sure to check PEOPLE.com every Thursday for a new game day recipe from your favorite celebrity chefs. Here, Aarón Sánchez, Chef/Partner of Johnny Sánchez in New Orleans, shares his recipe for his Chile Con Queso and Chorizo. 

I love cooking around game day, and there are quite a few really fun stories that have come out of our festivities, but I think there is one instance that stands out to me the most.

It is a fond memory of mine where we were cooking with a bunch of my chef colleagues in the New York Giants parking lot one day. They happened to be playing against the New Orleans Saints, who are my favorite NFL team, especially now that I live in New Orleans. Everyone was crowded around tailgating and having a great time eating and drinking. We were making Cajun food in the parking lot in New Jersey, frying beignets and making gumbo, serving crawfish, making new friends through food—all in enemy territory.

That is one of the truly beautiful things about cooking, it is so unifying; it didn’t matter which team you were there to support, we all have to eat.

Peak Performance, Nigel Cabourn Team for Ski Collection

SNEAK PEAK: Nigel Cabourn, who practically lives and breathes vintage and utilitarian outerwear, has teamed with Peak Performance, the sporty Swedish lifestyle brand, on a collection of 20 unisex ski and outerwear pieces inspired by the Swedish army uniform, circa World War Two.
The collection, Peak Performance for Nigel Cabourn, spans sturdy – and stylish – performance clothing done in black, olive and navy, with a punch of burnt orange, and a camouflage pattern.
It’s the first-ever collaboration for Peak Performance, which is owned by IC Group, the publicly quoted parent of Tiger of Sweden and By Malene Birger, which is based in Denmark.
Ski wear is tricky: The slopes are awash in garish patterns, unnatural color combinations and frumpy pants. It’s all about as attractive as ski boots on the streets of the city.
The Cabourn for Peak Performance collaboration is a whole different story: The silhouettes are oversized and bold – and in colors and shapes that look modern.
The key piece is a black sheepskin coat that hits mid-thigh, with big patch pockets on the sides. It’s based on a vintage Swedish army coat, although the original ones were white, to match the snow.
There are also oversized smock tops with hoods and pockets, a lightweight parka
