FIT’s Joyce Brown Takes Several Steps to Deal with Fallout of MFA Fashion Show

Joyce F. Brown, president of Fashion Institute of Technology, released a new statement Friday evening to the FIT community updating the steps the college has taken and continues to take in response to the fallout of the MFA Fashion show on Feb. 7.
As reported, during that show, model Amy Lefevre refused to wear accessories she considered racist that FIT graduate Junkai Huang showed with his looks. She walked the runway without them and told WWD she felt uncomfortable wearing them. Earlier this week, Brown issued a lengthy apology to those who participated in the show, to students and those who were offended by what they saw. The accessories, in question, were large prosthetic ears and lips and bushy eyebrows
“This moment, in our minds, is not about closing a chapter and letting wounds heal. It is the beginning of accountability. And we cannot expect our community to trust us without a full examination of how this came about,” said Brown in the new statement. She said FIT  has commissioned an independent investigation “of ourselves.”
“Bond, Schoeneck & King, an external law firm, will immediately conduct a thorough and objective probe into the incident, including what led up to the show and what followed,”

Central Saint Martins MA Fashion Champions Recycling and Craftsmanship

LONDON — Central Saint Martins showcased its best design talents from the class of 2020 MA Fashion course on Friday with a 5G theme flashy high-tech projection sponsored by Three. Yet somehow, the microphone didn’t work during the winner announcement.
Women’s wear designer Sarah McCormack from Dumfries, Scotland and American Chinese designer Leeann Huang stood out from the 21 designers who made it to the graduate show and took home the grand prize L’Oréal Professional Creative Award.
Fabio Piras, course director of Central Saint Martins MA Fashion, said Huang was awarded for the research she went through while McCormack was “a fantastic choice,” as she manages to create couture-level beauty with rejects, all done by hand.
Huang’s graduate collection is a colorful nostalgic trip back to her childhood. “The future seems very bleak to me. Through my research, I was looking at different things that used to make me happy as a child. Mostly through cartoons like ‘The Powerpuff Girls,’ or ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ which painted a very positive feminist future,” she said, adding that she would like to get a job in Europe, and not return to the U.S. and President Trump.
McCormack’s collection is rich in textiles. “I started with a base and

Diesel Joins Fashion Pact

MILAN — Diesel will reveal on Thursday that it has joined the Fashion Pact, taking its commitment to environmental goals one step further.
In January, during Milan Fashion Week Men’s, the Italian fashion group launched its “For Responsible Living” strategy with Eco-Age founder Livia Firth.
The Fashion Pact’s 63 signatories have committed to achieving practical objectives in three areas: climate, biodiversity and oceans.
Renzo Rosso, founder of Diesel and president of its parent company OTB, said, “To change the way we do business, collaboration is key. We have been working with Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana to progress the sustainability conversation in Italy for a long time, but we recognize our industry’s global footprint.”
Rosso added that he was “looking forward to working with these stakeholders who believe that the future of fashion, and of our planet, lies in uniting under a common goal and setting out clear and actionable steps to leave a better world to next generations.”
The “For Responsible Living” strategy rests on four pillars: Be the Alternative, creating alternative and responsible products; Stand for the Planet, committing to climate action by minimizing greenhouse gas emissions, water footprint and improving recycling rates; Celebrate Individuality, developing a sustainability culture within the company, honoring

Lela Rose Bakes Up a Storm for New York Fashion Week Presentation

LELA’S ALL-NIGHT BAKERY: In the specter of entertaining, Lela Rose is an overachiever — so why would preparations for her presentation Monday afternoon have been any different?
Apparently, designing a 26-piece collection and opening a pop-up flower store were not enough for the New York designer. She also volunteered her baking skills to ensure that guests got a sampling of her homemade cookies with hand-pressed flowers. Her schedule last week basically amounted to a second job. After a full day’s work, she came home every night to bake for a solid three hours, usually from 9 p.m. until midnight. That drill intensified Saturday with five hours in the kitchen and then nearly a full day at the stove Sunday. “My feet were killing me. I went from fitting the clothes to making the cookies,” Rose said.
Guests stood shoulder-to-shoulder in the Greenwich Avenue shop trying to get a glimpse of the models wearing designs inspired by the Chelsea flower markets. Amidst the forsythia and racks of looks such as a silk satin one-shoulder dress with a turban sleeve and a botanical crepe open-neck dress with delicate crystal details, a table laden with plates of delicate-looking cookies anchored the room.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: An American Fashion Dream

The days leading up to New York Fashion Week are typically a hotbed of activity in studios across New York, designers refining their clothes and distilling the range down to that perfect runway message.
But on Monday, despite the approach of his first full-scale show this morning, at the restaurant Veronika, there was nothing going on at Adam Lippes’ temporary studio on lower Broadway. Nothing that required his oversight, anyway. No castings, no fittings, no sartorial tweaking.
That’s because Lippes wasn’t around. He was 380 miles away in Fort Erie, Ontario, making good on a long-ago, teenaged vow to act as a pallbearer for the gardener of his family’s vacation house.
Lippes hadn’t seen Walker Dekker since 2003, at Lippes’ mother’s funeral, and was surprised by a November call from the man’s nephew, who’d found him on Google: “My uncle would love to hear from you.” Lippes intended to call, but got busy as one does, and didn’t. The nephew got in touch again in mid-January. About two weeks later, on a Sunday, Lippes picked up the phone and reconnected with the man to whom his younger self had been so close. “Remember our vow,” Dekker said. The following Wednesday, he was dead.

MSG to Shine Spotlight on Fashion

MSG Networks is getting fashionable.
The sports broadcaster will kick off a Fashion Week takeover on Monday, featuring a full week of content that will highlight the evolution of fashion in sports and provide an inside look at the styles popular today in the NBA and NHL.
The content will be used on MSG’s linear, digital and social channels for the Knicks, Rangers, Islanders and Devils, the four teams currently playing during New York Fashion Week. It will shine a spotlight on some of the most fashionable athletes on those teams including Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, Devils defenseman P. K. Subban and Knicks guard R.J. Barrett, who will be featured throughout the week showcasing their own personal style, favorite fits and most stylish teammates.
The programming will also include segments on how certain styles have evolved, both on and off the court and ice, and will include the change in jersey designs and the increased attention on pre-game outfits.
MSG Networks on-air talent will also be prominently featured and will include former Knicks player Walt “Clyde” Frazier, whose outrageous outfits catapulted him into one of the NBA’s first fashion icons. Frazier will discuss his personal style, the story behind his “Clyde” nickname, and will

Are Guest Designers the New Engine of Fashion?

If Bergdorf Goodman’s Linda Fargo had her way, Giorgio Armani would open up his archive and atelier to Dutch couturier Iris Van Herpen for a season.
“That could create some extraordinary results,” mused Fargo, senior vice president of the fashion office and the director of women’s fashion and store presentation at the Manhattan retailer. “A guest designer or collaborator can bring a fresh take on the DNA of another brand. It’s like a duet: Think Amy Winehouse and Tony Bennett.”
While Fargo’s fantasy pairing might never happen, a growing number of marquee designers and luxury brands are inviting guest designers for a one-time appearance — or basing creative leadership based on serial collaboration rather than permanent artistic direction.
WWD has learned that Emilio Pucci, which has churned through six creative directors in the past 20 years, will now invite rotating guests to interpret its brand essence, archive and spirit, starting with French designer Christelle Kocher.
Moncler is perhaps the most prominent proponent of using serial creatives. In 2018, it invited eight designers including Pierpaolo Piccioli, Craig Green and Simone Rocha to join its new Genius project, which followed having Giambattista Valli and Thom Browne design women’s and men’s runway collections, respectively, for a decade.

Grammys 2020: 17 Memorable Moments in Grammy Red Carpet Fashion

The Grammy Awards never fails to deliver red carpet moments that leave us in shock, awe or just scratching our heads.
This Sunday’s 62nd annual show held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles is unlikely to disappoint with looks that will live on in the red carpet canon.
But only a few celebrities push the limits of what red carpet dressing can be.  No one can forget when Lady Gaga showed up being carried in an egg in 2011. Rihanna’s frothy, bubblegum pink Giambattista Valli gown from 2015 inspired a plethora of loofah memes. And 20 years later, Jennifer Lopez’s plunging Versace gown is still as iconic as ever.
We are keeping an eye out for three Best New Artist nominees to bring us some of the night’s best looks.
Lizzo, the most nominated artist, has been one of the year’s major style stars. This could be her chance to solidify herself as true fashion girl.
Grammys newcomer Rosalía often plays with her Spanish roots to bring an authentic flamenco-inspired style that is both unique and modern.
Few artists have made as bold of fashion choices this year as Lil Nas X. His world of hip-hop meets country has spawned some of the boldest male fashion

Amazon Shoppable Fashion Competition Series ‘Making the Cut’ Announces Premiere Date

Will the future of fashion be streaming?
Maybe. Several shows combining fashion, storytelling and digital commerce are launching in the coming months.
On Tuesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., Amazon announced its new fashion competition series, “Making the Cut,” will premiere March 27.
“We are excited to be able to produce a show that really looks for the next global brand…and create the situation where [designers] are set up for success when they leave us,” said executive producer Sara Rea.
Former “Project Runway” host Heidi Klum and mentor Tim Gunn lead the cast, with Naomi Campbell, Carine Roitfeld, Joseph Altuzarra and Nicole Richie as guest judges.
The program brings together 12 entrepreneurs and designers from around the world who are competing for a $ 1 million prize and the chance to turn their fledgling businesses into global brands.
Challenges take them to New York City, Tokyo and Paris (the crew shot at the Eiffel Tower over the summer), and the winning looks will be shoppable at around $ 100 or less, and in sizes from XXS to XXXL on Amazon immediately following each episode.
“People can buy it all over the world. We are going into over 200 territories,” Klum said of the difference

All the Kardashian-Jenner-West Fashion and Beauty Brands in the Works

Given the sheer number — and popularity — of the Kardashian-Jenner-West family’s fashion and beauty brands, they’ve proven they are a force to be reckoned with outside the entertainment arena, building businesses that compete with the biggest brands in the market. And they’re only just getting started.
In 2019, the reality TV clan marked significant milestones for their respective businesses — most notably Kylie Jenner selling a majority stake of her Kylie Cosmetics brand to Coty Inc. for $ 600 million — and they also laid down the groundwork to continue expanding their empires by filing a number of new fashion and beauty trademarks.
From Kendall Jenner’s first beauty venture to the youngest of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s children getting in on the family business, here are all the Kardashian-Jenner-West fashion and beauty brands in the works.

Decoding the Tens: Fashion Industry Weighs In

As the Tens draw to a close and the Twenties get ready to dawn, WWD casts an eye on the dizzying amount of change the last decade has brought to the fashion scene — including streetwear’s rise; a growing voice from younger — much younger — generations; the blurring of gender lines, and a rising environmental awareness, not to mention the indelible mark left by the #MeToo movement.
It was a tumultuous period, with the recasting of old orders by technology, which took a central role in rearranging the era’s priorities.
WWD turned to industry figures, including retailers, historians, curators and trend forecasters, to sift through the Tens, and decide what defined them, fashion wise.
What was the look of the decade? Who was the designer of the era? And how about the future: Will the Twenties roar again?
Strong mentions for the decade’s standout look included Demna Gvasalia’s oversize imprint at Balenciaga, the gender-bending baroque aesthetic from Alessandro Michele at Gucci, the recasting of women’s wardrobes by Phoebe Philo at Celine and Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior and the arrival of Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton. The reign of the sneaker made a mark. Some wondered, is Hedi Slimane the new Karl Lagerfeld?

The Biggest Fashion News Stories of 2019

The death of a major fashion designer, a celebrity fashion line and the changing of the guard at the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
These are just some of the biggest fashion news stories that have made headlines this year. The year began with the sad news of legendary Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld passing away at the age of 85, then transitioned to a packed summer of news that ended with luxury retailer Barneys New York filing for bankruptcy.

Karl Lagerfeld Dies at 85, February 2019

The fashion world was in mourning upon the news that Chanel fashion designer, Karl Lagerfeld, died at the age of 85 on Feb. 19. Rumors of the designer falling ill began increasing after he was absent from Chanel’s spring 2019 couture show a few weeks prior.
Lagerfeld’s model muses, celebrities and other fashion designers took to social media to share their memories of the designer upon his death, including Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and

No. 2: Karl Lagerfeld Changed the Fashion Industry Forever

He was so prolific, indefatigable, larger-than-life and multifaceted that the fashion world does not feel the same without Karl Lagerfeld.
He brought energy, boldness and a rare rock-star charisma, and seemed to galvanize Paris as the creative heart of fashion.
Since his death last February at age 85, the industry has mourned, mounted tributes, planned books and exhibitions, and pondered all the wisdom to be gleaned from one of the pioneers of brand rejuvenation, high-low collaborations and multitasking — and a master of storytelling, showmanship and witty repartee.
By all accounts, he left the brands he piloted in fine fettle — recognizing early that brands matter most, not the designers behind them. Chanel is now led by his longtime right-hand woman Virginie Viard, who is staying the course while adding a youthful elan. Fendi, now unofficially piloted creatively by Silvia Venturini Fendi and her Rome-based team, is said to be growing at a healthy and stealthy 10 percent clip.
Meanwhile, Lagerfeld’s namesake house brought on renowned stylist and editor Carine Roitfeld to work in tandem with design director Hun Kim, who had been handpicked by Lagerfeld and has been working quietly behind the scenes since August 2015. And sales have been flourishing in 2019.

Moore From L.A.: 5 Trends to Watch This Red-Carpet Awards Show Fashion Season

‘Tis the season…for Hollywood red-carpet prep!
There will be parties for hosting, blockbusters for toasting and campaigning ahead of the show — it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. But, like this holiday shopping season, this awards season is compressed. Two weeks shorter than last year’s lead-up to the Oscars, the accelerated schedule has stylists and designers working overtime, all in the name of glam.
Tom Ford has already thrown down the gauntlet by moving his runway show from New York Fashion Week to Los Angeles, hosting it on Feb. 7, two days ahead of the Feb. 9 Oscars. And he’s likely to have a banner year because of it. (Rather than a runway show, he could just have had his fall collection modeled by nominees walking the Oscars red carpet and saved a step.)
But there’s still a lot of spotlight before then. This week, nominees were revealed for the Golden Globes (Jan. 5), Critics Choice Awards (Jan. 13) and SAG Awards (Jan. 19). And, with so much streaming content from Netflix, Amazon, Apple and the like, it seems as if there is a record number of A-list women to be dressed, including Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Phoebe Waller-Bridge,

Is Antwerp Still Relevant in Today’s Fashion Landscape?

Antwerp, Belgium, has been rich for a long time. Pepper, silver and the silk trade made the city an economic powerhouse in the 16th century and it has been a nurturing place for art, culture and fashion ever since. Nowadays, it sits on the world’s largest diamond trade business and hosts Europe’s second-largest port.
The city’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts has been nurturing design talents such as the Antwerp Six, Martin Margiela, Haider Ackermann, Kris Van Assche, Glenn Martens, Demna Gvasalia and Jan-Jan Van Essche since the Eighties. They went on to run respectable and successful fashion businesses in the city or became creative directors at luxury houses, such as Hermès, Berluti, Dior and Balenciaga.
Now a new generation of Belgian fashion brands has decided to set up their businesses in the city, with new approaches and different design ethos.
“I wish I would have done it here, it would have been much easier,” said Martens, creative director of Y/Project, before he participated in a panel discussion during a series of talks organized last month by Flanders District of Creativity in Antwerp.

Fashion Awards 2019 to Recognize the ‘Designer’s Designer’

PEER-TO-PEER: At this year’s Fashion Awards in London, the British Fashion Council will be celebrating the Designer’s Designer, an accolade that coincides with the launch of the BFC’s new membership program.
Nominees include Christopher Kane, Roksanda Ilincic, Margaret Howell, Jonathan Anderson and Simone Rocha. The membership program’s 80 founding members will be voting for the winner of the Designer’s Designer award.
It will be presented during the 2019 ceremony, which takes place at Royal Albert Hall on Dec. 2.
According to the BFC, all nominees were chosen for having had a “global impact” and because they “moved the needle in increasing their positive brand perception” through collaborations, product design and creativity.
The new BFC membership scheme aims to raise funds for designers, business programs, education and scholarships, and wants to encourage a stronger sense of community and collaboration among its members. It also aims to tap into “a much wider community, not just the brands that are part of the schedule at London Fashion Week,” said BFC chair Stephanie Phair.
It will provide a new revenue stream for the BFC. Membership fees are based on annual turnover, and range from designer members to patron members. Businesses with up to 1 million pounds in turnover pay

Laura Brown Awarded the Australian Fashion Laureate

SYDNEY — Laura Brown has been awarded the top honor at the annual Australian Fashion Laureate Awards in Sydney.
Revealed at a function at Café Sydney on Wednesday, the Australian Fashion Laureate is bestowed each year on an Australian fashion figure in recognition of outstanding career achievement.
Unable to make it down for the event, Brown made an appearance via a pre-recorded video. “I’ve been gone 18 years now and just to be recognized by home, by people who I love and a place that formed this little gal, I’m so deeply, deeply honored,” she told WWD by phone from the U.S. “In my industry there’s a lot of stuff [accolades] thrown around willy-nilly a lot of the time and I know that this isn’t and it really means a lot to me because of that, because it feels serious and it feels appreciative.”
Born in Australia, but based in New York since 2001, Brown spent 11 years at Harper’s Bazaar, before her appointment as InStyle editor in chief in 2016.
Brown has retained close ties to the Australian fashion industry. She was a founding board member of the Australian Fashion Foundation, which was cofounded in 2009 by two other Australian expatriates, New York-based publicist Malcolm

The Return of the Fashion Bra

Ath-leisure has affected nearly every realm of fashion. Consumers prioritize comfort when constructing their wardrobes⁠ — even in innerwear.  
It started with the bralette trend in 2015. Women in search of comfort were ditching their underwires. As the #MeToo Movement picked up steam a few years later, the trend continued. More and more women were determined to buy clothes⁠ — especially lingerie⁠ — that was functional and comfortable; the opposite of bras and panties designed for the male gaze. 
Add to that the explosion of the inclusivity movement, with brands offering a wider range of sizes and skin tones. The effect was a muting of the lingerie color wheel. Vibrant reds were replaced with softer shades of pale pinks and purples in simplistic styles, as can be seen in ads for brands like ThirdLove, American Eagle Outfitters’ Aerie and True & Co. 
But then something happened. Shoppers realized the options were basic. In the world of innerwear, pale pinks and baby-blue hues dominated the assortment. 
Now fashion — along with comfort — is staging a comeback in the intimates industry. And a lot of it has to do with the effects of streetwear. 
“The number-one trend I’m seeing in lingerie is the influence of streetwear,

Gucci to Return to Men’s Fashion Week

MILAN — Milan Fashion Week Men’s is three months away, but it’s getting an unexpected boost, courtesy of Gucci. The Italian fashion brand will be returning to the January edition with a men’s wear show to be held on Jan. 14, after deciding to go coed in 2017. That would be the last day of the next edition, as Milan Fashion Week Men’s is slated to run Jan. 10 to 14, 2020.
In a letter sent to Italy’s Camera della Moda president Carlo Capasa, Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci, thanking the fashion association for the invitation to return to Milan Fashion Week Men’s, said “the Milan fashion shows embody the strength and beauty of Made in Italy. Milan Fashion Week is a central event in the fashion world’s calendar and confirms Italy’s fundamental role — for creativity and manufacturing alike — in the luxury sector.”
Bizzarri underscored that the “act of solidarity” of the companies taking part in Milan Fashion Week “have already demonstrated their capacity to work together with a common goal: to make women’s fashion week ever more beautiful, innovative and authoritative, this is what happened last month.” This is a reference to how the Camera

Gucci to Return to Men’s Fashion Week

GUCCI’S CHOICE: Milan Men’s Fashion Week is three months away, but it’s getting an unexpected boost, courtesy of Gucci. The Italian fashion brand will be returning to the January edition with a men’s wear show, after deciding to go coed in 2017. Since then, the Italian fashion company has opted to present its collections during women’s fashion week in February and September. “It seems only natural to me to present my men’s and women’s collections together. It’s the way I see the world today,” said Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele at the time.
A date for the January show has not been set yet.
However, things are changing, and after a number of slimmer men’s fashion week calendars, more labels could perhaps be enticed to follow Gucci’s example. Camera Nazionale della Moda has been working on shaking up the status quo and in July it revealed Milan Fashion Week would present different show calendars going forward. Some key Italian fashion players agreed to rotate slots in upcoming seasons to favor a more balanced calendar to benefit the system and the city. As a result, during the latest women’s Milan Fashion Week edition in September, Prada staged its show in the afternoon of the first day of shows,

Burberry Partners With The RealReal in the Name of Circular Fashion

LONDON — Against of a backdrop of climate change protests and luxury companies ramping up their sustainability initiatives, Burberry has partnered with luxury consignment marketplace The RealReal in an effort to promote a circular economy in fashion.
According to Burberry, the partnership is a means of educating and directing consumers who wish to consign their Burberry items, or to shop for old Burberry pieces, on The RealReal’s site.
“We hope to not only champion a more circular future, but encourage consumers to consider all the options available to them when they’re looking to refresh their wardrobes,” said Pam Batty, vice president of corporate responsibility at Burberry.
Burberry won’t be providing any of its unsold stock, or giving the consignor any exclusive products. Instead, the company has chosen to reward TheRealReal customers who purchase consigned Burberry products more chances to shop the brand via an exclusive personal shopping experience in one of its 18 stores across the U.S.
According to the luxury label, the personal shopping experience will include Champagne and high tea and a personal selection of new Burberry products to shop from, including their latest collection of more than 109 looks.
Like many luxury brands, Burberry has moved to become more sustainable.
Earlier this year, the brand

Fall Fashion Edit: The Most Stylish Eyeglasses You Can Buy Online

We’re a culture that thrives on instant gratification. Shopping is evidence of that. Why make a trip to a brick-and-mortar store when you can browse for everyday essentials from your couch, then have them delivered to your door in a matter of days? For some time there were exceptions to this convenience. For instance, buying prescription eyeglasses required multiple visits to get an eye exam, work with an optician to find a flattering pair of frames, then wait for them to be made before you could get prescription eyeglasses. But now, you can bypass the middleman. So long as you have a current prescription (yes, you still need a yearly eye exam), you can upload your script and get a pair of eyeglasses shipped right to you.

We spoke with Kim Nemser, vice president of product strategy at Warby Parker, the brand that started the craze, for some must-know tips and tricks. Once you’re armed with the necessary knowledge, check out our favorite new frames of fall 2019. They’ll give you the fresh start you need.

The Best Styles for Each Face Shape

Geometry plays a considerable role, but you ultimately want to pick frames that look and feel good. “Beyond considering your face shape, it’s important to consider the width of your face, especially with optical frames,” says Nemser. “Wide frames can overwhelm narrow features, and frames that are too narrow can result in an incorrect fit.” Here’s the quick and dirty on the most flattering frames for your face shape:

Round: “Try a graphic frame,” Nemser says. “Think: a rectangular pair with more pronounced angles and edges.”
Diamond/Square: “Juxtaposition is key,” Nemser explains. “With an angular shape, go with a style that has softer edges. Round-lensed frames balance out strong jawlines or cheekbones.”
Heart: “Heart-shaped faces can pull off the aviator style—a tried-and-true shape with smooth lines that complements a wider forehead,” Nemser says.
Oval: “An oval-shaped face is great for most frames, since the ratio of your facial features is balanced,” Nemser says.

Choosing Colors to Match Your Skin Tone and Hair

You’ve probably heard that cooler skin tones look best in blues and greens, while reds and oranges flatter warmer skin tones, but there’s no hard and fast rule with eyeglasses. “Frame color is usually a personal preference, based off what people are most drawn to,” Nemser says. “Green has been trending in the market, and we introduced a ‘rosemary crystal’ this August. We’ve also seen bold tortoises, matte colorways, and graphic two-toned acetates continuing to do well.”

Embrace Your Quirks, Know Your Fit

It’s easy to assume you just need to tighten the arms of your glasses in order to ensure a proper fit, but there’s actually more at play here. Here’s how to tell if you’ve found a pair of well-fitting frames, according to Nemser:

Pupils are near the center of each lens
Lenses don’t extend past the sides of your face
Eyebrows are above the glasses
Temples sit comfortably on your ears (and aren’t too tight or too loose)
When you smile, your cheeks don’t push the frames up

“We know how important it is to find the right fit, so we offer a few no-risk ways to try on frames before purchasing,” Nemser adds. “Through our Home Try-On program, we’ll send you five frames for free to try on for size. If instant gratification is your thing, you can try on frames virtually through our app on an iPhone X. Alternatively, pop into any one of of our retail locations, and our advisors are happy to help—plus we offer a 30-day, no-hassle return policy for any frame purchase.”

Note that brands have sizing options—like wide and narrow fits—depending on the frame. For instance, Warby Parker has “low-bridge” fit for people with low nose bridges (if the bridge of your nose sits level with or below the pupils), wide faces, and/or high cheekbones. “They help keep frames from sliding down your face, resting on your cheeks, or pinching,” she explains. All of those factors indicate an improper fit.

“We also offer variations in nose pads (for less tension and to reduce slipping), lens tilt (to provide space between the cheekbones and the frames), and curved temples (creating a roomy fit, reducing pinching and any pain).” That said, if you’ve struggled to find comfortable frames in the past, it’s worth going to a brick-and-mortar store rather than shopping online so a professional can help you optimize your frames.

Consider a Specialty Lens

For the most part, it’s always best to consult an optometrist if you’re unsure whether you want a specific lens. “We offer blue-light-filtering lenses for everyday wear, for those who want to protect their eyes from UVA rays, UVB rays, and blue light,” Nemser says. “They filter more blue light from the sun and other sources than standard polycarbonate lenses and can be added to any frames with or without a prescription. For those who wear glasses every day, our standard lens options are treated with anti-reflective, scratch-resistant coatings, and come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays.”

Tips for the At-home, Try-on Process

“At Warby Parker, we usually recommend starting with the quiz to get a sense of what frame shape, fit, and colors work best for you,” Nemser says. “Once you receive the glasses, you have five days to try them on for size. We recommend wearing each pair for an hour or so to get a feel for the fit. Sharing photos or consulting a friend (or even our Customer Experience team) is encouraged when making a style decision.”

What to Do if Your Eyeglasses Need an Adjustment

“All Warby Parker stores offer free adjustments by trained opticians onsite to ensure your glasses or sunglasses are the perfect fit,” Nemser says. “If there’s not a retail location nearby, we’ll reimburse you the cost of one adjustment (up to $ 50) within 30 days of purchase.”

Oslo by ROKA

ROKA is ideal for guys who want a pair of specs that can keep up with active pursuits—be it boxing, cycling, or CrossFit. The brand uses a patented elastomer along the temple and nose pads that mimics the stickiness of a gecko’s feet, providing a no-slip grip no matter how sweaty you get. This round silhouette will flatter most, but it’s especially great for people with angular features—i.e. a diamond or square face shape.

Felix by Warby Parker

Warby Parker is your best bet for a variety of styles, colors, and materials. And as we highlighted above, pretty much guarantees you’ll love your frames what with their online quiz, at-home try-on process, and 30-day return policy. The Felix frame falls between a round and square style, so it’s a stellar match for most face shapes. The acetate comes in classic and trending colors—like Pacific Crystal shown here—and is brand new for fall 2019.

Burberry frame via LensCrafters

Shop LensCrafters for frames from designers you know and love. The selection isn’t huge, but the upside to that is it isn’t overwhelming. The site is user-friendly, with an index of information on each style, like the frame size, material, shape, and what face shape they’ll look best on. This rectangular Burberry BE2298 frame is an excellent choice to offset round or oval faces.

Yucca Aviator Glasses by Zenni Optical

Zenni Optical is a one-stop shop for the guy who wants it all. Need a frame with lenses that block UV and blue light, or a clip-on pair that has a detachable sunshade? You’ll find it all here. You can also shop for kids’ frames, and the site has an exhaustive amount of information on everything from ordering glasses online to workspace progressives. Heart-shaped faces do well with aviator styles; the shape balances out a wider forehead.

Zenith by Ambr Eyewear

If you’re in the market for blue-light blocking glasses, select a style from Ambr Eyewear. Most brands’ options have orange-tinted lenses that can alter your color perception, but these look like typical eyeglasses (whether you’re wearing them or someone’s admiring from afar). The rounded shape of these Zenith frames will soften the angular features of a square face.

L’Oréal Paris Hosts Third Fashion Show

L’Oréal Paris’ third fashion show, held Saturday evening at the majestic Paris Mint, began with a drumroll. Six-hundred guests, with Naomi Campbell, Olga Kurylenko and Louise Bourgoin sitting in the front row, waited for 32 of the brand’s ambassadors to make their entrances on the circular stage.
Helen Mirren, Andie MacDowell and Eva Longoria were among the star-studded cast taking part in the show, which was set to original music performed live by a 40-piece orchestra. But before that began, the women shared with WWD their thoughts on sustainability.
Mirren, walking for L’Oréal Paris for the second time, was scared of tripping over her dress, as was Amber Heard, a first-timer. “I’m terrified of falling down,” revealed Mirren, whose recent projects include HBO’s “Catherine the Great” and “The Good Liar.” “I’m wearing this gorgeous Giambattista Valli dress. It’s very, very floaty — lots of stuff to get tangled in and fall over.”
Mirren drew parallels between runway and stage work. “It is theater,” she said. “I’m a theater girl. I want to be on stage.”
Mirren loves the backstage fashion-show experience. “It’s all chaos, and yet somehow they make sense of it, and then you line up and they go ‘OK, go,’” she said.

EXCLUSIVE: Ramdane Touhami Introduces Fashion Game and New Creative Agency

GAME ON: Fashion’s a game, literally, for entrepreneur Ramdane Touhami, who created a board game called Art, Recherche & Industrie to mark the official launch of his creative agency of the same name.
“It’s kind of a Monopoly of fashion and design,” he told WWD on Monday, the day before he would host a fete in Paris for the kickoff. “The idea of this game is you go around exactly like in Monopoly. You have to build your first store, your flagship store. And after, in the rules, we wrote clearly you have to be the richest. Don’t be nice to anyone, they’re all hypocrites.”
Three hundred of the artisanally designed games are being produced for Touhami to gift. “This is sarcastic fun, but it’s still fun,” he said.
The “franc mode” currency ranges from 100 FM bills to 50,000 FM bills, which feature portraits of famous fashion figures, including Gabrielle Chanel and Jeanne Lanvin.
As players pass go, they collect 20,000 FM in salary. Here, the roads are named after tony shopping streets, like Rue Cambon, Fifth Avenue and Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The three other corner squares of the board are Burn-Out, CEO Bonus and Holidays Simple Weekend.

A Look Back at Balmain’s Fashion Collaborations

Balmain’s makeup collection with Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics might be one of the buzziest collaborations of the season, but it certainly isn’t the first for the designer brand.
During his eight-year tenure as creative director of the brand, Olivier Rousteing has teamed with a number of other brands, including H&M, Victoria’s Secret and L’Oréal Paris.
Rousteing also doesn’t shy away from a celebrity collaboration. Known for his social media savviness — and his “Balmain Army,” which includes many of Jenner’s family members in addition to models Gigi Hadid and Jourdan Dunn, among others — Rousteing has also worked with Beyoncé and Cara Delevingne on a number of campaigns and collections.

The collection was initially unveiled at the Billboard Music Awards, where Rousteing, Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn walked the red carpet wearing pieces from the collaboration. Balmain and H&M then debuted the full line a few days later at a runway show in New York,

Tmall Brings Chinese Fashion to MFW

The appeal of Chinese consumers is causing international fashion companies to increasingly explore the market, but Chinese fashion has been less in the spotlight.
Alibaba Group’s Tmall, China’s premiere business-to-consumer platform for brands and retailers, has brought two labels from the country to Milan Fashion Week, aiming to expand their and the country’s international visibility in fashion.
Part of the “Tmall China Cool” roving initiative which touched down in New York earlier this month during NYFW: The Shows and will hit Paris next week, the showcase displayed the spring collections of Shushu/Tong and Yirantian.
“The reason why we wanted to do the Tmall China project is that there’s so much young creativity coming out of China and actually these designers have studied in Europe and have worked for other European brands,” explained Christina Fontana, director for fashion and luxury Europe at Alibaba Group, ahead of the show. “They bring that knowledge back to China, mixing it with their culture and capabilities to really build something new.”
Shanghai-based Shushu/Tong was established in 2015 by design duo Liushu Lei and Yutong Jiang, both graduates of the London College of Fashion. After cutting their teeth at Simone Rocha and Gareth Pugh, respectively, they launched their own brand,

Etro to Take Over Milan’s Bice Restaurant During Fashion Week

CHEZ ETRO: The Etro family knows the art of hospitality.
For the upcoming Milan Fashion Week, the Italian label is partnering with Bice, one of the city’s historical restaurants, setting up the location on Via Borgospesso with flamboyantly decorated items from the brand’s home and textile collection, as well as with pieces from the family’s private collection.
The Etro takeover will run Sept. 16 to 22.
Marking the collaboration, Etro will provide tablecloths decorated with two of its signature prints. They include a cotton fabric featuring the 1981 design called Jais, which is splashed with the paisley motif punctuated by roses and a multicolor, patchwork-style linen cloth dubbed Spring from the 1993 collection. The latter matches checkered patterns with paisley and delicate floral motifs.
Additionally, the Etro family will lend pieces from its private art and furnishing collections, including silver and glass vases, centerpieces and paintings dating back to the 19th century conveying a chic atmosphere.
“Etro is [like] Milan: industrious, reserved, to be discovered and a lover of quality. These are values that our family has always shared with Bice, which for us is like home. A special house that, if possible, we wanted to make even more intimate and welcoming,” said Jacopo Etro,

Revving Up for London Fashion Week With Dilara Findikoglu, Michael Halpern and Richard Quinn

LONDON — Designers Dilara Findikoglu, Michael Halpern and Richard Quinn are some of the most colorful, best-known names on the London Fashion Week schedule, even though their labels are still young.
Known for his colorful prints, big volumes and dramatic runway shows, Quinn is looking to up the ante this season, adding texture to his clothes by turning prints into embroideries and making his silhouettes even more dramatic.
“The show is as important as the set, the music, the choreography. We like having emotion in our shows and actually wanting people to feel something, so hopefully [this season] will have the same effect,” said Quinn.
He’s also putting a focus on creating more couture-like garments that can withstand the test of time. “I’m hopefully turning [my] prints into really extra extravagant and almost archive-like pieces,” he said.
Halpern, too, has been getting experimental with his designs. While he’s known for being a sequin-studded brand, the designer has been introducing new materials to create the same high-shine sequined and glamorous effect.
“It’s been interesting for me to see how to translate that magpie mentality that we have here into something that’s not solely sequins,” said Halpern. He’s been weaving, draping and pleating with lamé to create

EXCLUSIVE: AMI to Hold Shanghai Fashion Show 

PARIS — For its first fashion show outside of France, AMI is headed to Shanghai. Signaling a fresh Asian thrust for the brand, the show will be held on Oct. 12, preceded by pop-up stores in Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu, which will open on Oct. 1.
“We’re heading into our ninth year and the number nine is a lucky number for me so we decided to celebrate this anniversary rather than the 10th,” Alexandre Mattiussi, AMI creative director, told WWD.
Mattiussi, who showed his label’s first collection in January 2011, said the label has a certain resonance in Asia.
“It’s a French designer at an affordable price point,” is how chief executive officer Nicolas Santi-Weil described the label’s positioning. Mattiussi started the label because “he loved beautiful things but he felt a little disconnected with reality because all the garments he was designing were sold at a price point that he could not afford himself,” said Santi-Weil, recalling the designer’s days at Givenchy.  
“AMI is appreciated in Asia because it’s a Parisian postcard,” said Mattiussi. At the same time, he said he might make small adjustments, like changing a fabric or a certain color.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Fashion Show Celebrated in Rizzoli Book

Karl Lagerfeld’s most fantastical Chanel fashion show sets are the subject of the upcoming Rizzoli book “Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows.”
A collection of images by English photographer Simon Procter, the book documents many of the late Chanel designer’s runways from the last 10 years, including his very last collection for the fall 2019 ready-to-wear season — shown at the Grand Palais, designed to resemble a snowy Alpine ski resort — two weeks after his death.

“Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows” book cover 
Simon Procter/Rizzoli

As Lagerfeld once stated, his set design ideas would come to him in his sleep. Procter’s images reflect the grandeur of these sets, including when the Grand Palais was transformed into a tropical beach, a 100-foot-high waterfall and a rocket ship, to name a few.
Procter also gives a behind-the-scenes look at many of Lagerfeld’s shows, documenting intimate moments between the designer and his model muses.
“I was lucky enough to meet him many times over the years; it was always a delight and we always did great work,” Procter writes in the book’s preface. “The two things I remember most were that he always personally greeted everyone in the room. The other, that he was very, very funny. Many times whoever was

Why Fashion Documentaries Are Ready For Their Close-up

 It took more than 30 years before award-winning documentary filmmaker Susan Lacy, a pioneer of biographical portraits of cultural giants, turned her camera on a fashion figure.
And she immediately understood the appeal of the milieu. “Fashion is something that most people have some interest in, and some opinion about,” she said. “And people are looking for a good story and a good subject.”
Her latest movie, “Very Ralph,” debuting on HBO on Nov. 12 and devoted to American fashion icon Ralph Lauren, headlines another bumper crop of fashion documentaries out this year and underscores the growing popularity — and malleability — of the format.
Among the varied personalities also getting the treatment are Belgian iconoclast Martin Margiela, perhaps the most camera-shy designer of all time; Olivier Rousteing, creative director of Balmain, who documents his life incessantly on Instagram; Space Age couturier Pierre Cardin, also the subject of a retrospective now on at the Brooklyn Museum, and Chiara Ferragni, an influencer who parlayed her photo blog The Blonde Salad into a teeming lifestyle enterprise. The latter two movies are to be screened at the Venice International Film Festival.

EXCLUSIVE: LVMH to Establish Karl Lagerfeld Fashion Prize

His legendary fashion career was ignited by an award. In his twilight years, he acted as a judge for the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers, leaving most contenders starstruck.
And now he will be immortalized with a fashion prize in his name. LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton confirmed exclusively to WWD that its Special Prize will henceforth 
be named the Karl Lagerfeld Prize.
The first one is to be presented during the sixth edition of the contest on Sept. 4 at the Fondation Louis Vuitton.
“Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of the house of Fendi since 1965, 
was involved in the prize since its launch,” said Delphine Arnault, the force behind the high-profile design competition. “He was fully committed to it since Day One, 
transporting us with his enthusiasm and his energy, sharing with everyone, whether other jury members or candidates, his culture and his passion for fashion. We shall always cherish those precious moments.”
A key talent scout at the French luxury conglomerate and the number-two executive at its flagship Louis Vuitton brand, Arnault added that the Karl Lagerfeld Prize “naturally perpetuates the closeness we developed 
over the years and is a tribute to the man’s unique creative genius, to his ability to

Our 2019 Fall Fashion Preview, Starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is joking—or maybe not—when he says that the title of his breakout movie should be Aquaman: I Watched It on a Plane. Evidently that’s what some people tell him upon learning that he played the villain Black Manta opposite Jason Momoa’s marine superhero. It made $ 1 billion, so folks saw it in theaters, too.

Haven’t flown much lately? Then maybe you recognize Abdul-Mateen II from his first role, playing Cadillac on Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down, a Netflix series about the rise of hip-hop in the 1970s. You might also know him as Karl, the lead in the latest season of Black Mirror. Little kids who saw Abdul-Mateen II in The Greatest Showman opposite Hugh Jackman joyfully tackle him. Still not ringing any bells? Just wait for his starring role in an adaptation of DC Comics’ Watchmen on HBO, opposite Regina King, out in October.

 

 

In fairness, Google can’t quite place him, either. The search engine says he’s an architect. Here’s what happened: The now 33-year-old was an undergrad at U.C. Berkeley, studying architecture, the fulfillment of a childhood dream to be in construction like his father. (Rejected career choices, circa age 5, include: basketball player, boxer, race car—as in an actual automobile.) He needed an elective, and a teammate from track recommended he take acting. “At the end of the semester,” he says, “the teacher told me, ‘You know, you’re pretty good. You should take some more classes,’” He did.

So the man can act. And he wears the hell out of some retro-inspired clothes. They reflect his own just-over-the-top style. “In college, before a party,” he says, “I’d ask my roommates, ‘How does this look?’ They’d say, ‘Stupid.’ I’d say, ‘Good.’”


Mo’ Better Blues: A Stylish Denim, Shirt, and Jacket Combo

Abdul-Mateen II wears two silver rings, one encircled by fleurs-de-lis, the symbol of New Orleans. He grew up there, before his family moved to the Bay Area.

He has with him two duffels. Those, and photos of his mother and late father, constitute the bulk of his immediate possessions. Abdul-Mateen II is a nomad, living on location or crashing among five older siblings.

Abdul-Mateen II’s family, and a few close friends, help him navigate his career. “I have to be careful,” he says. “Right now there are plenty of opportunities to say yes. I can get offered a role I should turn down, but think, ‘I can make that into something.’” He’s choosy about who he works with, like Jordan Peele, his director in Us and producer of Candyman, which Abdul-Mateen II is set to star in next year. Also indie filmmaker Zeresenay Mehari, who directed him and Dakota Fanning in the upcoming Sweetness in the Belly.

And Abdul-Mateen II is also writing a ton. It started on the set of Aquaman. He was scheduled to shoot at the very start of production and at the tail end. The middle three months was a slog of lifting weights just to stay in bad-guy shape. During lonely hours at the gym, he started dreaming up stories. “I lay out a blueprint,” he says, “with pictures on a board, lines connecting them, taking advantage of the fact that I think three-dimensionally.” He’s an architect, after all.


The Best Colognes and Scents You’ll Want to Wear All Year Long

It’s clear the star of HBO’s Watchmen is caught between up-and-coming and here-and-now. As for his style—that, you’ll see, is timeless. Here’s our 2019 fall fashion preview featuring Abdul-Mateen II; check the credits to get the looks for yourself.

Fashion 4 Development’s First Ladies Luncheon to Honor Carla Sozzani and the Alaïa Foundation

AN ALAÏA SALUTE: Fashion 4 Development is already gearing up for its First Ladies luncheon with a bevy of honorees. Carla Sozzani and the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation are at the top of that list as the recipient of the F4D Development award. She is president of the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation and founder of 10 Corso Como.
The Sept. 24 event will feature a tribute to Azzedine Alaïa and the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation complete with a runway show by Maison Alaïa. Twelve years ago, the company’s founder set out to convert his voluminous archives and holdings through the Association Azzedine Alaïa to become the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation. Sozzani and the late designer’s partner, Christophe Von Weyhe, have been instrumental in protecting his legacy. His collection is housed at 18 rue de la Verrerie in Paris, where he once lived and worked. Exhibitions are planned to share his work with future generations.
F4D founder Evie Evangelou said of Sozzani, “Carla is an extraordinary human being and she inspires goodness. Her sincere willingness to educate and bring her experience and knowledge to all, especially with fashion students through her work with the Alaïa foundation. It is a golden opportunity for all who have been touched by

Kering-Led Fashion Pact Has 32 Signatories in Run-up to G7 Summit

PARIS — Geopolitical tensions might be running high ahead of this weekend’s summit of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, but the fashion industry is eager to paint a different picture — one of corporate rivals banding together with pledges to do better for the environment, signing on to the “Fashion Pact.”
Eliminating single-use plastics, using renewable energy and promoting regenerative agriculture practices are among the commitments from signatories of the pact, which will be presented by Kering chairman and chief executive officer François-Henri Pinault at the upcoming summit hosted by France in its coastal city Biarritz.
Structured around the climate, biodiversity and the oceans, the initiative is spearheaded by Pinault, who was mandated for the job by French President Emmanuel Macron last April. Thirty-two companies have signed on so far, representing around 150 brands, and more are on the way, according to Kering and officials from the French president’s office and the country’s ministry of ecology. 
Companies that have signed on so far range from fast-fashion retailers H&M and Zara-owner Inditex; sportswear labels Adidas and Nike; American-based companies Capri Holdings, Gap, PVH, Ralph Lauren and Tapestry; European luxury groups Chanel, Hermès International, Prada, Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani and Burberry, and Asia-based Fung Group.

The Biggest Fashion and Beauty Brand Controversies of 2019 — So Far

So far, 2019 has had no shortage of brand controversies in the fashion and beauty worlds.
The year started off with a number of gaffes from some of the biggest luxury fashion houses, in many cases resulting in public outcry, public apologies and, sometimes, changes in company policy. Some of the most notable fashion controversies of 2019 were Gucci’s infamous “blackface” balaclava and Burberry’s noose sweater. Kim Kardashian also came under fire for cultural appropriation when she revealed the name her first fashion line, a shapewear collection called Kimono.
From the backlash against Related Cos. chairman Stephen Ross and his many companies to Jaclyn Hill’s beauty brand recall, here is a breakdown of all the fashion and beauty brand controversies of 2019, so far.
Gucci accused of cultural appropriation, twice — February and May 2019

Gucci fall 2018

Gucci came under fire for cultural appropriation not once, but twice in 2019. The first incident was in February when the designer house released a balaclava-style sweater in its fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection and on its web site, which many claimed resembled blackface.
The backlash was immediate on social media, including by Gucci collaborator Dapper Dan, who took to his Twitter account to express his disappointment

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.

Tyler Boye/WWD

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,

Polimoda Appoints Massimiliano Giornetti Head of Fashion Design

MILAN — Florentine fashion school Polimoda has tapped Massimiliano Giornetti as its first head of fashion design.
A Polimoda alumnus, Giornetti worked for 16 years at Salvatore Ferragamo, from 2010 to 2016 as creative director of the women’s and men’s lines. In 2017, Giornetti started designing the collections of Chinese luxury brand Shanghai Tang, which he exited at the end of 2018.
“Polimoda’s success reflects our ability to understand the spirit of the time and possibly anticipate it. Observing the crisis of large retailers, I think that fashion will soon need a new wave of creativity and well-made products. Polimoda has direct access to made-in-Italy know-how and revels in ethnic, cultural and gender diversity among students; these are ideal conditions for the birth of contemporary design,” said Polimoda director Danilo Venturi. “Meeting Massimiliano was serendipitous: he knows how contemporary fashion works, he is a former student, he reached the highest levels on the international scene and shares my same vision. The school will be a bit more maison with him and this will enable us to once again make our contribution.”
In his new role, Giornetti, who will officially start working at Polimoda at the beginning of the fall semester in September, is

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.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Stonewall and Fashion Pride

Individual stories; universal experiences.
Sometimes the former coalesces into the latter for people who live their lives, or part of their lives, within various communities and subcultures. As Pride Month continues toward the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, a great deal of celebratory fervor has focused on the phenomenal strides made by the LGBTQ community, its denizens for so long shunned from essential elements of mainstream culture. As recently as the 2008 presidential primaries, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton claimed to be against same-sex marriage. (They made public reversals in 2012 and 2013, respectively.) Today, same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states, after the landmark 2015 Supreme Court ruling. The rapid-fire changes, Stan Herman says, “are seismic.”
Stan is one of a quartet of designers who gathered last week for a cross-generational roundtable on Pride and LGBTQ issues. Now in his “90th year,” and six — or is it seven? — decades into his career, Stan is as engaged as ever as a designer. He’s a walking, talking, tennis-playing history of the modern American fashion industry, including its longtime safe-haven allure for gay male creatives and the devastation wrought by the AIDS crisis beginning in the early eighties.

Moore From L.A.: Could San Francisco Become a Fashion Capital?

Could San Francisco become a fashion capital?
It’s not a media hub like New York or a manufacturing center like L.A., but it is a hotbed of fashion disruptors following historic blue jeans maker Levi Strauss & Co. and casual Friday pioneer Gap in changing the way people dress and shop.
What sets many of San Francisco’s fashion brands apart is that they are direct-to-consumer, mission-driven and digitally enabled from inception to tackle industry challenges, including sizing and transparency. Many are also led by female chief executive officers or creative directors designing into a polished, functional aesthetic that’s resonating in this new feminist era.
Now that these start-ups are coming of age (and setting $ 1 billion-plus public offerings), they are attracting more talent, including designers, stylists and editorial directors, and a new creative class is starting to emerge in San Francisco.
Everlane has ambitions to be the next Gap, only with a transparent supply chain. ThirdLove, the size-inclusive, female-first lingerie maker, is taking on Victoria’s Secret. Cuyana is selling attainable luxury ready-to-wear and leather goods with the mantra “fewer, better things.” Meanwhile, fashion-tech brands Stitch Fix and online resale giant The RealReal are reshaping the shopping experience.

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.”

As June marks Pride Month and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, many fashion and beauty brands are coming out to support the LGBTQ+ community in impactful ways.
Several brands are showing their support by creating capsule collections full of rainbow-themed apparel and accessories, donating up to 100 percent of net proceeds to charities that benefit the LGBTQ+ community, including GLAAD, the Hetrick-Martin Institute and the United Nations Free & Equal campaign, among others.

Fashion Rental Site Charlotte’s Closet Targets Teens

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. Dresses arrive the week of the event and can be kept for five days.
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.
Charlotte’s Closet offers 500 styles from 30 designers, with new items added daily. Clients can search dresses by color, size, brand, occasion or date of event. Dresses arrive with a complimentary backup size is included, and the site offers free returns and takes care of all dry cleaning. Customers can try up to three dresses six months prior to an event for a $ 29.95 fee, which will be applied to the rental.

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

Stella, Google and Centre for Sustainable Fashion Get a Jump on Copenhagen Summit 

LONDON — The Copenhagen Fashion Summit hasn’t officially started, but companies are already beginning to feel the heat.
Earlier this month, the latest report by Global Fashion Agenda and Boston Consulting Group said sustainable progress in the fashion industry has slowed, and if the slowdown continues at the current rate, Paris Agreement climate goals can’t be met.
In his opening remarks ahead of the summit Baptiste Carriere-Pradal, vice president of the sustainable apparel coalition, stressed the importance of collaboration.
“Mid-size companies are actually the ones who are progressing with their sustainability efforts because they don’t have such large dedicated sustainability departments, they’ve found solutions through collaboration and more companies should be banding together,” he said.
Retailers including Stella McCartney are also in favor of collaboration. On Wednesday morning Google, innovation consultants Current Global and Stella McCartney announced they were teaming to provide fashion brands with a data analytics machine learning tool powered by Google Cloud technology.
The tool will provide visibility and measure the environmental impacts of different textiles so that brands can make more responsible sourcing decisions in their supply chain.
McCartney will take part in the first pilot project, which plans to deep dive into the environmental impacts of cotton and viscose.

EXCLUSIVE: Honey Dijon Cues Up Fashion Brand, With Comme des Garçons

QUEEN BEE: Honey Dijon is the latest music figure to take a leap into fashion with a prestigious partner: Comme des Garçons is preparing her first products for release in the coming months, WWD has learned.
Dijon and Adrian Joffe, president of Comme des Garçons International and chief executive officer of Dover Street Market, confirmed they are “working on building a brand together called Honey F—ing Dijon.”
They noted “the first small collection of DJ bags and Ts should be launching this summer or early fall.”
A DJ popular with the fashion crowd, Dijon has 118,000 followers on Instagram and commands huge crowds for high-energy sets that mix various genres of dance music. The most recent one was a sold-out “Brunch in the City” event in Barcelona last weekend.
Dijon has also mixed music for Dior Men’s runway shows and performed at an array of fashion events for brands including Burberry.
DJs seem to be the latest fashion stars, with Peggy Gou recently launching her brand Kirin as the latest recruit of New Guards Group, whose stable includes Off-White designer Virgil Abloh and Heron Preston. Both men are also frequently found behind the decks.

How Rihanna’s LVMH Deal Could Change the Future of Celebrity and Fashion Branding

RiRi is poised to be the next LV of lust-worthy monograms.
Friday’s announcement that LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton will launch a new Paris-based Fenty maison “centered on Rihanna, developed by her, and taking shape with her vision in terms of ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, including commerciality and communication of the brand” marks the first time the luxury conglomerate has launched a fashion brand from scratch since it set a couture house for Christian Lacroix in 1987. Only this time, it’s with a celebrity — who will also be the first black woman to head an LVMH brand — and the development could change the future of Hollywood dealmaking in the fashion space.
“Instead of having celebrity faces like Natalie Portman or Nicole Kidman at Chanel, it’s now about how a celebrity can own a brand,” said Stacy Jones, chief executive officer of entertainment marketing firm Hollywood Branded Inc., who credits the groundbreaking LVMH deal on Rihanna’s demonstrated success as a singer, actress and marketer who is able to move Fenty beauty products with an Instagram post. She also touted the legacy of the Kardashians and celebrity-businessmen including George Clooney, whose tequila company Casamigos sold for $ 1 billion last year (which in

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

The Paris Agreement Climate Change Goals Can’t Be Met Unless Fashion Does Better

OUT OF TIME: Despite all the noise — and the genuine changes being made — the fashion industry is losing its enthusiasm for tackling climate change, according to the latest report released by Global Fashion Agenda and Boston Consulting Group.
Industry progress has slowed by a third in the past year. The industry as a whole was awarded just four points in the GFA’s Pulse Score, a baseline score for measuring and tracking sustainability targets of the global fashion industry, compared with the six points awarded in 2018.
The report revealed that since the industry is a net contributor to climate change, the goal of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, as stated in the Paris Agreement, will not be met unless improvements can be made.
“These latest findings emphasize the dire need for the whole industry to join the race and accelerate change now,” said Morten Lehmann, chief sustainability officer at Global Fashion Agenda, the organization that stages Copenhagen Fashion Summit, which is set for later this month.
The report also uncovered that 40 percent of the industry is not able to move into phase two of the Pulse Curve, a five-phase trajectory charting the industry’s social and environmental performance. Phase two

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

Jamie Dimon Talks Fashion — and Stock Price

ZEGNA’S FANS: Ermenegildo Zegna drew a crowd Wednesday night to celebrate its new, three-floor Manhattan flagship on 57th Street, where chief executive officer Gildo Zegna and artistic director Alessandro Sartori greeted the likes of Alec Baldwin, Stan Smith, Eric Rutherford, Igee Okafor, John Demsey, Peter Marino (who designed the store) and Thom Browne, whose brand was acquired by Zegna last year. There also were a fair share of bankers and hedge fund types, longtime Zegna customers there to check out the latest wares. Among the latter was a low-key Jamie Dimon, chairman and ceo of JPMorgan Chase, who was overheard telling guests that he’s worn Zegna suits for more than 30 years.
But Dimon being Dimon, he also talked about everything from Browne’s short suit (“at least he has the legs for it”) to his letter about the need for tweaks to capitalism, JPMorgan Chase’s share price and Marino’s outfit. Upon being introduced to the typically leather-clad Marino, Dimon pointed to the huge pointed rings covering the creative’s fingers and said, “Do you wear those on the subway?” Marino replied, “At least I don’t get mugged.” He went on to rib Dimon that the chairman needed to do something about JPMorgan’s

From Digital Design to Upcycling: Meet the Students Pushing for More Sustainability in Fashion

Amber Slooten, Amsterdam Fashion Institute (Netherlands)
Amber Slooten graduated from AMFI in 2016 with a minor in Hypercraft, the school’s virtual design section, which was launched 10 years ago. During a gap year spent at MediaLab, a division of the Amsterdam University of Applied Science, she discovered a virtual design software named CLO3D: alongside game designers, interior designers and fashion branders, Slooten created a virtual reality fashion show named SecondSight, to be watched on mobile phones using 3-D glasses.
The project lead her to reconsider her design practice at AMFI. “We were creating so many clothes, I was forever dragging all these different collections on my bike for each project, and when the project was over they would just sit in my closet,” remembered Slooten. The student pushed her teachers to allow her to present an entirely digital graduate collection, projected via holographic layers onto a dancer, and ended up teaching a course helping students to use the CLO3D software. Since Slooten’s digital project, a number of other students were able to graduate without producing a physical collection of clothes, effectively changing the fashion school’s assessment methods.

Amber Slooten’s graduate collection at AMFI was presented in holographic form.

Moore From L.A.: Is Fashion the Next Big Oil?

This show season, for the first time, I was ashamed to work in fashion because fashion is becoming a dirty word. And the revolution is just beginning.
Last week, Extinction Rebellion, the activist group that has shut bridges and poured buckets of fake blood outside Downing Street, parked a giant pink boat in London’s Oxford Circus blocking the flow of commerce in one of most heavily trafficked shopping areas in the world. At the same time, members were protesting Shell Oil and fracking, they were staging a guerrilla-style runway show to highlight the fashion industry’s negative impact on the environment. That’s sobering.

Environmental campaign group Extinction Rebellion held a fashion show in London’s Oxford Circus.

I first became aware of Extinction Rebellion during London Fashion Week. I was crossing the Thames in a ride share (at least I had that going for me) when we were stopped in traffic by the group. Its members had been protesting outside runway shows throughout the day, starting with Victoria Beckham and ending with Burberry. Escorted by police, they carried signs that read “Climate Emergency” and “This is Not a Drill.” My Uber driver rolled down his window to take a pink flyer:

Devastating Notre Dame Cathedral Fire Rocks Fashion World

A catastrophic fire took hold of the Notre Dame Cathedral, one of Paris’ most iconic landmarks on Monday.
The blaze set off on Monday afternoon and continued to rage throughout the evening. Thousands of onlookers in the City of Light watched from the bridges and sidewalks as the building’s famed spire, which painted the Paris cityscape for more than 800 years, collapsed into the flames. No casualties have been reported and there has been no cause for the fire cited at press time. The 14th-century French Gothic building, with its pointed arches, intimidating gargoyles and rose windows was immortalized in film and literature, most notably in Victor Hugo’s classic novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
Designers and dozens of members of the fashion industry have taken to their social media feeds in tribute to the French landmark. See their posts here:

Fashion Now Sheds Light on Fashion Talents in Beijing

BEIJING — A group of designer brands has chosen to show as a collective with the independent fashion showcase platform, Fashion Now, at Dreamland Art Space inside Beijing’s Four Seasons Hotel on March 20 to 21.
Founded in 2013 by Yilan Jiang, former deputy fashion feature director of Vogue China, and Sisi Ma Fashion Now provides an alternative solution for designer brands that want to be seen in a more curated setting, as the official calendar in Beijing is often filled with uninspiring brands and political influence and lack the power to attract top buyers and editors.
Jiang said the intention of launching Fashion Now is to “set the bar high on physical and metaphysical levels. I want to provide quality designers and brands with a platform and space to showcase their creations, and we grow with them along with the way.”
Fashion Now is a key event for the Beijing fashion community. Angelica Cheung, Simona Sha, editor in chief of the Chinese editions of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, respectively, have attended the shows, as well as designer Xander Zhou; fashion photographer Trunk Xu; artist Shurui Li, who collaborated with Dior Lady Art #3 project, and Hu Bing, actor and men’s wear ambassador

A New Kind of Athleisure: These Designers Turned MLS Soccer Jerseys into High Fashion

While most fans marked the beginning of a new Major League Soccer season by suiting up in their team’s colors and heading to a game, Adidas and MLS kicked it off with something a little unorthodox: a fashion show.

 

 

Adidas, which supplies the kits for all MLS teams, partnered with the league to launch Seams, a project where a handful of young designers reimagined soccer jerseys. The idea came about as a way to connect the sport with the world of fashion—and show that there’s more than one way to wear a jersey.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to marry our culture and trends with all 24 of our clubs,” Rachel Leber, vice president of consumer products at MLS, told Men’s Journal at the event in Los Angeles.


Gear Essentials: How 3 MLS Players Set Up a Perfect Beach Day

Four stylists and designers—Sara Gourlay, Corey T. Stokes, Andrew Andrade, and Pierre Davis—were chosen to rework the jerseys, and they created 48 different looks. We caught up with a few of them backstage before the show to learn more about how they approached the project.

mls adidas
Pierre Davis, Andrew Andrade, Corey T. Stokes, Sara Gourlay BFA, Owen Kolas

 

Corey T. Stokes is a New York-based stylist and editor-at-large for High Snobiety. He worked to merge his own tailored aesthetic with the MLS jerseys, which meant rethinking what a jersey represented and styling it in innovative ways.


How 4 Former NFL Players Are Dealing With Life After Football

“I toyed with this idea of a uniform,” he said, adding that he re-envisioned accessories, like sunglasses, and elements of a soccer kit, like shin guards. “I wasn’t too caught up on trying to fit into the soccer world, but more so taking the soccer jersey outside of it.”

adidas mls
Models backstage at Seams BFA, Owen Kolas

 

Andrew Andrade, a stylist at the LA streetwear boutique FourTwoFour on Fairfax, channeled his lifelong love of soccer into the outfits he put together for Seams.

“I think soccer as a whole is already a fashionable sport,” he said, and he found inspiration from a number of famously stylish players, like Johan Cruyff and Pelé. His looks layered jerseys over and under more traditional staples—like trousers, exaggerated collars, and blazers. He described his collection as “a little bit of fashion, but more a direct reference to soccer.”


Matthew McConaughey on Football and How He Became a Washington Redskins Fan

Sara Gourlay, creative director of the women’s streetwear brand Frankie Collective, has carved a niche for herself by up-cycling vintage pieces and fabrics into imaginative women’s sportswear—pushing for a stronger female presence in streetwear, which is often dominated with men’s looks. For Seams, she applied that same reworking technique to the MLS jerseys.

“I’d say each piece is unique,” she said. “Just like the reworking, we looked at this jersey and said, ‘What can we do with it?’”

Not surprisingly, her outfits pushed the limits of what you can do with a jersey: bags, purses, and even a catsuit made from stitched-together Vancouver Whitecaps uniforms were all featured in her collection. Although the designers were using men’s jerseys, Gourlay made sure her designs included options for women as well.

adidas mls

The show comes at a pivotal time for soccer, when women’s teams are pushing for equal pay and better representation. Soccer jerseys, as recent redesigns from Adidas and Nike demonstrate, are changing, too. For Gourlay, it’s all about moving beyond tired clichés of what women’s clothing should look like.

“The mindset before was that girls wanted to wear pink,” she says. “But women actually want to wear the same swag as guys. It just needs to be fitted to our bodies.”

adidas mls
Men’s looks modeled on the runway at Seams BFA, Owen Kolas

 

The show also highlights how much athletic wear has influenced men’s fashion. Athleisure is everywhere, and the idea of incorporating a soccer jersey into runway looks isn’t as far-fetched an idea as it might have been a few years ago. But while sweatpants and hoodies are having their moment in the spotlight, Stokes hopes to see menswear swing back to something a little more formal.

“I think there’s a fine line with making it look on purpose and it just looking sloppy and messy,” he said. “I’m interested in the idea of dressing nice again.”

As for what’s next in men’s fashion, he sees more tailored pieces, like trousers, button-downs, even casual suits becoming more popular alongside athletic-inspired apparel. Like many of the other looks on view at Seams, Stokes’ outfits gave a glimpse at how a new wave of men’s fashion could combine traditional menswear with style elements drawn from the locker room.

“It’s still comfortable, but you focus more so on good tailoring—well-fitted clothes.”

Steele then kicked off the discussion, asking Patel to describe her primary day-to-day responsibilities and strategic point of view.
Patel, who oversees men’s, women’s, accessories, jewelry and beauty, said, “When we look at fashion, there’s a lot of storytelling that goes on.

Brands, Recyclers and NYC Department of Sanitation Team Up to Recycle Fashion

Starting Monday, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation is teaming with the New York City Department of Sanitation and NYC Economic Development Corp. for a citywide social media campaign titled #WearNext in order to reduce the amount of clothing being dumped in landfills.
An online map created by the NYC Department of Sanitation will guide people to more than 1,100 locations across the city where they can take clothes they no longer wear. Participating stores and other locations across the city will act as drop-off points.
The campaign, which runs through June 12, also encourages consumers to find ways to repair, reuse, resell or swap old clothing, and invites participants to share their stories on social media using the #WearNext hashtag.
Every year, New York City dumps 200 million pounds of clothing in landfills. Globally, 73 percent of the materials used to produce clothing are landfilled or burned at the end of their life, while less than 1 percent of old clothing goes on to be used to make new clothing.
Make Fashion Circular is an initiative of U.K. charity The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and is leading international efforts to establish a circular economy for fashion.
The effort has been initiated by such brands as ASOS, Athleta,

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

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

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

Mother of Pearl Takes Charge of Sustainability Conversation at London Fashion Week

LONDON — Mother of Pearl creative director Amy Powney wants to see the fashion industry modernize itself, and is taking the lead in a heated industry conversation: Sustainability.
For more than four years she has been working towards making every step of the Mother of Pearl supply chain more sustainable, from ensuring that cotton suppliers do not use pesticides during the farming process, to keeping production local in a bid to reduce a garment’s carbon footprint.
Powney is now ready to start sharing some of her findings with the rest of the industry, starting with a panel discussion to be held Saturday in association with the British Fashion Council, and broadcast by BBC Earth.
“All of the work that we have been doing around sustainability is not just about changing our own brand, it’s about helping or inspiring others to change theirs, too. Mother of Pearl is a drop in the ocean. Our brand alone can’t change the way the industry operates, but if we all come together then we can have a bigger impact,” said Powney.
Her ultimate goal is to achieve a gold standard for production, having taken a “360-degree view” around sustainability.
“When you use the term ‘sustainability,’ I don’t think you

London’s Fashion and Textile Museum Spotlights Mary Quant and Terence Conran

LONDON — Mary Quant and Terence Conran are at the center of the new exhibition “Swinging London: A Lifestyle Revolution” that runs until June 2 at the Fashion and Textile Museum.
The exhibition focuses on the cultural and fashion icon Quant, known for her bob hairstyle and mod fashions, and her close friend and collaborator, designer, restaurateur and retailer Conran. Their works are displayed together in lifestyle settings such as a living room and a shop.
The exhibition also presents textiles, fashion, design and the art of the Chelsea Set, a group of revolutionary young designers, artists, photographers, musicians, fashion models and intellectuals, whose activities centered around Kings Road in Chelsea from 1952 to 1977.
Dennis Nothdruft, head of exhibitions at the museum and curator of this exhibition, said during the press tour that the exhibition is meant to celebrate the achievements of Quant, Conran and many others who, through commercial success, brought clothes, furniture — and a modern lifestyle — into people’s lives in post-war Britain.
Displays include pieces from Quant’s legendary shop Bazaar, to a few daring fashion pieces done in PVC from the Alligator by Mary Quant line to the Banana Split minidress. They are displayed among furniture, ceramics, lighting, homeware and

Grammys 2019 Fashion Review: Cardi B on the Half Shell, Michelle Obama on Stage

Typically, it’s awards season’s loudest red carpet. But Sunday night’s Grammys fashion was unusually quiet — and covered up.
Without Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor Swift or Ariana Grande, who ditched the awards show after creative differences with producers (but wore her Zac Posen gown on Instagram anyway), the diva quotient was down, with only Cardi B’s meme-generating vintage 1995 Thierry Mugler Venus on the half shell look, and Janelle Monae’s sharp-shouldered Jean Paul Gaultier couture minidress to get armchair critics going.
Even Lady Gaga, who famously arrived at the 2011 Grammys in an Armani egg pod, played it relatively safe (she’s a movie star now, after all), wearing a silver, side-ruffle gown by Hedi Slimane for Celine (a no-brainer given that she attended his first women’s ready-to-wear show in October).
Long gone were the nearly nude looks of years past; instead of baring her naval in daring green Versace circa 2000, Jennifer Lopez went with a modest, crystal-embellished mint green Ralph and Russo column gown, and covered her face with a wide-brim hat; Miley Cyrus worked an oversized circa 2019 Mugler suit with a side of cleavage, and H.E.R. was outfitted in a custom Coach purple jacquard jumpsuit.

Five Minutes With Zen-like Fashion Week Rookie Nathalie Kelley

Most fashion week rookies are all about the photo-ops, but not actress Nathalie Kelley. While her fellow celebrity models were primping before Thursday night’s Red Dress Collection, she sat in the lotus position reading Neil LaBute’s “The Way We Get By.”
Minutes away from her runway debut at the Manhattan Center, the “Fast and the Furious” actress was calm as could be, wearing her red Randi Rahm  dress under a monogrammed red robe. At the Red Dress to help the cause, Kelley said her identity and ego were not wrapped up in what was about to happen. “I don’t care where I’m placed or if I’m seen in the photo,” she said with a laugh. “I meditate a lot.”
Losing her phone in a cab en route to another fashion show earlier in the day did not rattle her either. “I made a decision that I wasn’t going to make it a problem,” she said. “It was so nice to be fully present. “Everybody is always waiting for the show to start [pretending to swipe a phone]. I was drinking it up. It’s theater — the setting, the sound, the lighting, even watching the people. As an actress, I’m devouring that.”

Tokyo-Based Designer Tomo Koizumi Has One Seriously Crazy Fashion Story

It is hard to believe anything Tomo Koizumi says.
How a Tokyo-based costume designer gets plucked from Instagram last month by Katie Grand, who offers to style a runway show at Marc Jacobs’ New York store, sounds like the wind-up for a joke. The fact that he set out to be a junior high school art teacher only makes their last-minute plans more baffling and impressive. But it is all true, true, true. By Tuesday morning, Koizumi was jet lag-free in Jacobs’ SoHo offices and 24 hours later he was up for an interview in the airy downtown space.
Surrounded by racks of the voluminous kaleidoscopic-colored designs he brought from Tokyo, Koizumi took a break from steaming, while his sister Yuka and a friend kept at it. To make the journey to New York, all of these confectioneries had somehow been stuffed into the three slightly battered boxes that were stacked in a corner. However jack-in-the-box that might sound, Koizumi described packing like rolling up a sleeping bag. “Yeah, it’s a bit extreme. But it is very light,” the 30-year-old said.
“I’m still not sure I’m in the fashion industry,” he said flatly.
“You might feel it at seven o’clock Friday night,” Grand said laughing.

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

EXCLUSIVE: Natacha Ramsay-Levi to Head Fashion Jury at Hyères Festival

PARIS – 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.
It includes Charlotte Casiraghi; Guillaume Houzé, director of image and patronage of Groupe Galeries Lafayette; Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak of graphic design

Making the Fashion System Traceable, Transparent Focus of UNECE Forum

Full transparency might still be a pipe dream for politics, but the fashion industry is edging closer to that realization.
Next month several hundred leaders — from government, NGOs, designer houses, fast-fashion labels and other sectors — will converge in Paris for a two-day forum hosted by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe. “Measuring Impact” will be the theme of the event on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector at the OECD in Paris. After an exploratory meeting last year that attracted nearly 500, the upcoming forum aims to answer such questions as, “Where are my clothes coming from?” and “How are they done?” according to UNECE’s acting head of Sustainable Trade and Outreach Unit Maria Teresa Pisani. “The objective of the project is to have consumers, as well as manufacturers, brands and others answer the question, ‘Where is this coming from? How is this made?’”
Adopted in 2017, the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector is designed to help companies meet the due diligence expectations laid out in the group’s Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. Developed through a multi-stakeholder process, the Guidance was approved by all governments adhering to the OECD

Critic’s Choice Awards Fashion Review: Brighter Times Ahead

Seeing so many all-white fashion looks on the Critic’s Choice Awards blue carpet Sunday night, you might have thought Hollywood was making another political statement, following last year’s all-black fashion action at the Golden Globes to protest gender inequality.
But the trend is just a trend, at least according to Allison Janney. “We’re all just feeling it,” she said, looking a bit like a superhero in a white Alberta Ferretti cape and pants look, piled high with Neil Lane diamonds.
“Perhaps it is a subconscious message of hope. Brighter times ahead,” added her stylist Tara Swennen.
Or perhaps Hollywood stars, like so many others this January, are obsessed with organization guru Marie Kondo’s new Netflix show, “Tidying Up!” Whatever the reason, the fashion news of the night was a clean sweep. Emily Blunt seemed to get the memo, wearing a crystal-embroidered white silk Prada gown that her stylist Jessica Paster described as “fresh and simple.” Constance Wu romanced in Rodarte, and Lady Gaga in billowy blush Calvin Klein (though sadly, without hair colored to match this time).
Women wore the pants—a lot, with Julia Roberts choosing a deconstructed tuxedo by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Louis Vuitton and Claire Foy projecting power in a navy blue asymmetrical

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Can Fashion Save the Oscars?

Lady Gaga’s periwinkle presence at the Golden Globes was as memorable as her meat dress, only beautiful instead of bovine. It made for a brilliant expression of how a star of whom much is expected in the getting-dressed arena can live up to expectations while still exhibiting her maturation from audacious, wacky post-adolescent to audacious, uniquely elegant (when she feels like it) young woman. In a roomful of stars, Gaga proved the starriest.

The Globes’ news cycle may be several days in the rear-view mirror, but Gaga’s Periwinkle Power merits revisiting in light of the drama emanating from the upcoming Academy Awards, sprung from the Kevin Hart hosting debacle. According to a piece by Matt Donnelly in Variety on Wednesday, it looks likely that the Feb. 24 Oscars will go hostless for only the second time in its history. Given that huge vacancy and the furor surrounding it, the event is in apparent disarray.
Hollywood awards shows are a strange bird. The supposed point is to honor excellence, a hybrid of professional nobility and commercial savvy. Yet in the years since the first Oscars ceremony in 1929, a brief affair at which 12 were awarded, that initial dual intent has swung toward

Dita Von Teese to Appear in Jean Paul Gaultier’s ‘Fashion Freak Show’

SHOWSTOPPER: Dita Von Teese will be joining the cast of designer Jean Paul Gaultier’s “Fashion Freak Show,” WWD has learned.
The burlesque star, who already makes a video appearance in the fashion designer’s show at the Folies Bergère cabaret in Paris, will be gracing the cabaret’s stage during a weeklong residency from Jan. 22 to 27 for seven performances.
“Dita Von Teese is the most Parisian of all Americans,” Gaultier told WWD. “I have every admiration for her as she has raised burlesque to the rank of a chic, glamorous and popular art. It is an honor to welcome her to the ‘Fashion Freak Show.’”
It’s not the first time Von Teese has teamed with the couturier. The artist, a friend of Gaultier’s, previously walked in some of the designer’s couture shows.
“It’s an absolute dream to be a part of Jean Paul Gaultier’s show at the Folies Bergère,” said Von Teese in a statement. “Mr. Gaultier has always celebrated diversity on his runways in a genuine and authentic way. His celebratory show captures the essence of who he is as a creator of distinctive and rare beauty.”

END OF THE LINE: British property group Shaftesbury has expanded its retail portfolio, opening the first London outpost for the online men’s wear store, End.

The company has been offering reasonable rents in the neighborhood, which is a few minutes’ walk from Oxford and Regent Streets. Shaftesbury has also helped to install Supreme, Palace, Carhartt and Dukes Cupboard, a multibrand retailer, in the neighborhood. Samantha Bain-Mollison, head of retail at Shaftesbury, has been driving the strategy.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex Salutes Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller at Fashion Awards

LONDON — Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex took Fashion Award-goers in London by surprise when she took to the Royal Albert Hall stage on Monday evening to present Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, the designer behind her wedding dress, with the British women’s wear designer of the year award.
“It’s such a pleasure to be here, celebrating British fashion and British designers in my new home of the U.K. I’m seeing many familiar faces, many of you I’ve known for quite a while,” said Markle, who wore an elegant one-shoulder Givenchy gown and clutched onto her baby bump throughout her speech.
She spoke about women empowering each other through the clothes they wear and fashion’s shifting culture: “It was cool to be cruel, now it’s cool to be kind,” she said.

“When you choose to wear a certain designer, we’re not just a reflection of their creativity and their vision but we’re also an extension of their values,” added the new royal, lauding Keller’s “creativity and incredible kindness.”
In turn, a very shocked Keller thanked Markle for trusting her in such an important moment in her life.

Kim Jones to Receive Inaugural Trailblazer Accolade at Fashion Awards

LONDON – Kim Jones, artistic director of Dior men’s wear, will be among the British and international names to step onto the stage at Royal Albert Hall Monday night as the winner of the inaugural Trailblazer award.
The award marks Jones’ “always-on cultural zeitgeist and his reputation for challenging the norms while respecting heritage, history, creativity and innovation,” the British Fashion Council said, adding the award recognizes “the very best innovators and creatives in fashion” who are significantly shaping the industry.
The BFC pointed to Jones’ collaboration with KAWS to reinterpret the Dior bee emblem and the designer’s appeal to a growing female audience, “reflecting the trend for men and women forgetting the gender focus of a collection and buying pieces they simply want to own and wear.”
“His love for travel, international cultures and understanding of consumers further enhance his creative and commercial standing,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of the BFC, adding the organization is “very proud he is British born, educated and a great global ambassador for our industry.”
Jones, a Central Saint Martins graduate, said: “This recognition for my work means a lot to me.”
The Fashion Awards, which is sponsored mainly by Swarovski, is the main fundraiser for the BFC,

DKNY, Swarovski Group Partner on New Fashion Jewelry Initiative

DKNY will expand its fashion jewelry imprint through a partnership with The Swarovski Group.
The brand, a subsidiary of G-III Apparel since late 2016, has signed a multiyear licensing agreement with the Austrian gem purveyor.
The resulting DKNY jewelry will be available in all international markets except for North America and is set for a September 2019 retail launch.
The collection will include necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings — all priced at under 99 euro. There will be two collections issued per year.
“Swarovski’s superior craftsmanship, rich legacy and dedication to creating beautiful and attainable luxury accessories make [it] an ideal partner for the DKNY brand’s international launch into jewelry. “We look forward to growing the category with this iconic brand as our partner, and to continuing to extend the global reach of DKNY to consumers worldwide,” said Jeff Goldfarb, executive vice president for G-III Apparel Group.

A truly iconic brand that is synonymous with modern fashion, the collection was developed with innovative designs, clever use of Swarovski crystals, and unparalleled attention to detail which perfectly reflects the dynamic energy of DKNY,” said Markus Langes-Swarovski, a member of Swarovski’s board.

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

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

“We liked this open vision of fashion,” noted Alix Morabito, fashion director of Galeries Lafayette. The department store was interested in pursuing something “playful and very free” for the season, which worked well with Manas’ approach, she added.
The two showed how a gathered shirt sleeve on a cotton dress could be extended to cover part of the arm; the print was stripes of text: “xs, s, m, l, xl, uni.”
Manas also conveyed a body-positive message.
“People can buy the same item…there

South African Fashion on Show at Zeitz MOCAA

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

Ralph Lauren Receives Honorary UK Knighthood for Services to Fashion

Ralph Lauren can add a new notch to his leather belt: Honorary Knighthood.
The 79-year-old designer, who is celebrating 50 years in business, has been made an Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. He may be called Ralph Lauren KBE, if he wishes.
The honorary knighthood insignia will be presented to the designer by a representative of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at a ceremony next year.
Antony Phillipson, British Consul General to New York and Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for North America, said the award recognizes that “in fashion, business and philanthropy, Mr. Lauren has played a key role in forging transatlantic cultural and economic connections. As creator and visionary of the Ralph Lauren brand worldwide, Mr. Lauren has been a vanguard for the global fashion industry and American style for nearly half a century. In addition, monumental philanthropic efforts, especially in the realm of public health, cancer research and treatment in both the U.S. and the U.K., have led to benefits felt by citizens around the world.”
Lauren is the first American fashion designer to be recognized with an honorary knighthood. Other notable American recipients of an honorary U.K. knighthood or damehood include former Presidents Dwight

Hussein Chalayan, Peter Saville Accuse Fashion Corporates of Crushing Creativity

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

Dilara Findikoglu Swaps Fashion Week for Halloween

EXPLORING CONFLICT: Dilara Findikoglu, the Turkish-born, London-based designer, has built a reputation as a rule breaker ever since she staged a guerrilla fashion show outside Central Saint Martins three years ago.
She has now been rethinking the fashion calendar and quit the London Fashion Week schedule this September to present her spring 2019 collection in time for Halloween, in an 18th-century Georgian home in East London filled with dark wood furniture, grand chandeliers and an array of paraphernalia dating back 300 years.
“It’s important for a young designer to try to experience new things. If you follow what everyone else is doing, there is no point in trying to be a young innovative designer,” said Findikoglu. “That’s the main reason why I wanted to present in a different time, in my own time. Maybe it will open a new way for other young designers where we don’t get lost between the stress and crazy pace of fashion week. Right now it’s my time, my day and I could present the way I wanted.”
She pointed to the importance of people coming and spending time in the venue, to discover her world and the intricacy of her clothes: “If this was fashion week, people

The State of American Fashion: Alex Bolen

WWD: Please sum up the state of American fashion as you see it?
Alex Bolen: I think it would be awfully presumptuous of me to sum up the state of American fashion. I have one point of view, which is the point of view from our company and that’s a view as a manufacturer, as a retailer, as a designer.
I think that the term “American fashion” is perhaps a bit of an anachronism, one that used to mean some things design-wise. I think American companies were known for certain things, sportswear, whatever — and everybody’s doing everything now. And I don’t say that with any sort of sense of regret. I think it’s an evolution. So the idea of American fashion is a little more amorphous.
Now, New York-based fashion companies, that’s something else. Los Angeles-based fashion companies may have some different opinions on the matter. But I think that we as a group of manufacturers in New York could do a better job of looking out for our common interests.
I am not one who is particularly in favor of a group thing. I don’t think that solutions are one-size-fits-all, and I think that everybody has to, I wouldn’t say fend for
