Model Alliance Holds Protest Outside Victoria’s Secret Flagship in New York

NEW YORK — About 20 members and supporters of the Model Alliance protested near the entrance of the Victoria’s Secret Herald Square store Friday afternoon.
Holding heart-stamped signs that read “WE HEAR YOUR SILENCE” and “CALL ME 1-800-RESPECT,” the demonstrators circled the sidewalk, chanting “Victoria’s Silence” and “What do we want? Respect. When do we want it? Now.”
The 90-minute event was organized to raise awareness regarding complaints of sexual harassment and abuse by Victoria’s Secret employees and agents against fashion models who have worked with the brand, and to urge the company to address these serious allegations by joining the Model Alliance’s Respect Program. Earlier this month the Model Alliance sent an open letter cosigned by more than 100 models, including Amber Valletta, Christy Turlington Burns, Edie Campbell, Karen Elson and Iskra Lawrence as well as Time’s Up, calling on Victoria’s Secret chief executive officer John Mehas to join its Respect Program. The program calls for participants to adhere to a code of conduct to safeguard models.
Among the protesters was Nathalia Novaes, a model, who joined the Model Alliance’s leadership council this year. In her 10 years of modeling she has not worked for Victoria’s Secret, but she wanted to stand

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.
“I have been making

Single father and widower Ryan Howard has zero interest in the movie being filmed in Pine Harbour or the high maintenance stars staying in the cottages at the end of his lane. He's just barely holding on to the raw remains of his life and the fantasy world being concocted around him is, as far as he's concerned, a complete waste of time and energy. The one bright light in his life is an intern on the set, and their quiet conversations at the end of the day on his back porch. Hope Creswell hates her life, too, which is entirely unfair because she's blessed beyond measure. She's at the top of her acting career, a Hollywood A-list star, and surrounded by people that mean well. But Ryan makes her laugh, and cry, and before she can explain her double life, he kisses her.

Behind the Seams: Costumes for New York City Ballet’s ‘The Nutcracker’

What would “The Nutcracker” be without its pink tutus and illustrative sweets? The annual festive production is now under way at New York City Ballet, where it takes a staff of nearly 50 to craft and maintain the hundreds of intricate costumes required for George Balanchine’s holiday-season staple. WWD paid the company’s costume atelier a visit to see how they get it done.
Each year the city ballet’s in-house costume shop sees a mad dash in the lead-up to “The Nutcracker’s” five-week run at Lincoln Center, where the production is staged about 50 times. The task is one of historical reverence, as the company still uses original designs devised in 1954 by Balanchine’s chosen costumer Barbara Karinska, calling for some 150 looks with a cast ranging from ages eight into the mid-40s.
While ballet’s cascade of holiday-treat-inspired characters — hot chocolate, marzipan, candy canes and tea — appear effortless onstage, they require a taskmaster to see that they all get done. Enter Marc Happel, city ballet’s costume director who manages the shop’s tricks of the trade. That light pink tutu skirt? There’s actually “layers of flesh tulle, beige and layers of another pink underneath which gives it more depth,” Happel explained. An

Hilfiger’s TommyNow Show at the Apollo Theater Marks Return to New York

After traveling the world, Tommy Hilfiger is bringing its TommyNow fashion show back to New York.
On Sept. 8, the company will showcase the fall 2019 Tommy x Zendaya collaborative collection, codesigned by Tommy Hilfiger and global brand ambassador Zendaya, at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. The choice of the Apollo Theater confirms a WWD report on Jan. 8.
The show is expected to continue the themes of inclusion, diversity and empowerment that Hilfiger and Zendaya brought to the TommyNow runway show in Paris for spring 2019. That runway show, which paid homage to the 1973 French-U.S. “Battle of Versailles,” featured an all-black cross-generational cast including Grace Jones, Beverly Johnson, Pat Cleveland, Grace Jones, Veronica Webb, Halima Aden, Jourdan Dunn and Winnie Harlow. Roller disco dancers on an illuminated runway warmed up the crowd of more than 1,000 guests.
The Apollo show marks Hilfiger’s return to New York, having shown in the city for fall 2016. Since that initial presentation, the worldwide tour touched down in Los Angeles for spring 2017, London for fall 2017, Milan for spring 2018, Shanghai for fall 2018, and then Paris.

Zac Posen, Anna Sui to Design Costumes for New York City Ballet

The New York City Ballet will reprise its annual Fall Fashion Gala this September, inviting fashion designers to create costumes for new works that will premiere that evening.
The company’s 2019 edition, the first to be presided over by its new leadership staff, will see costumes designed by Zac Posen and Anna Sui. The event is scheduled to take place Sept. 26.
Posen has been paired with City Ballet principal dancer and choreographer Lauren Lovette, wardrobing her third work for the company. The yet-to-be-titled ballet will accompany Tan Dun’s score, “Fire Ritual,” composed for solo violin and orchestra.
Sui will team with Edwaard Liang, artistic director for the Ohio-based BalletMet and a former dancer with NYCB as well as the Nederlands Dans Theater. The work will be set to a new composition for solo violin and orchestra, devised by Oliver Davis.
The Fashion Gala event is annually conceptualized by Sarah Jessica Parker, who acts as a matchmaker between choreographers and designers. Marc Happel, City Ballet’s costume director, then facilitates the designers’ visions — adapting their fanciful whims to suit ballet’s athleticism and the grand scale of its stage.

Loro Piana Steps Out With Shoe Pop-up in New York

Loro Piana is stepping out. The Italian brand, known for its buttery soft textiles, has unveiled a pop-up shop in New York’s Meatpacking District exalting its key footwear styles. Called “The Rare Walk, Meatpacking,” the  residency which runs till July 8, takes a fun, spirited approach to its white-soled shoes.
As customers walk into the 16,000-square-foot space at 3 Ninth Avenue, they encounter oversize fabric fixtures mimicking dunes that nod to the Mongolian territory where the brand’s well-known cashmere is sourced. The fixtures prop up the shoes, including variations of the “walk” style and a limited-edition unisex merino wool sneaker exclusive to the Meatpacking store. The store also carries exclusive bags, scarves and a selection of small leather goods.
According to chief executive officer Fabio d’Angelantonio, the summer walk shoes have been popular with a new, younger customer, adding, “It’s been a way for them to discover the brand.”
The pop-up marks the U.S. debut of Loro Piana’s made-to-measure footwear program, which offers a choice of colors, linings and material combinations. A wall of 30 shoes in grid formation broadcasts the color options. The brand has a similar program in its European stores, but the downtown New York store also offers an option

Delvaux Mounts Magritte Exhibit in New York Store

Delvaux will bring its partnership with the Magritte Foundation Stateside, mounting an in-store exhibit of five René Magritte works that have not yet been seen publicly.
The show, opening Tuesday, is a brand-building exercise, according to Delvaux chief executive officer Jean-Marc Loubier. The Belgian leather goods firm opened its first U.S. store in January, and is interested in building local goodwill through experiential pop-ups in the shop.
Loubier said that Magritte enthusiasts not interested in purchasing a bag are still welcome to come view the works. “We are not arrogant, we are always welcoming people,” Loubier said. “We want people to discover us, our universe. The moment people come to us and enjoy, they have a good memory so they can come back or tell a friend. We want to be appreciated here long-term, that is the development we are doing.”
The Magritte works will be on view until May 24. To mark the occasion, Delvaux has released a new collection of Magritte-inspired accessories — a motif the brand has been working with and evolving over the past few years. Small leather goods and a men’s travel bag bear the artist’s famous rendering of a cloudy sky.

Hania New York: A Growing Hand-Knit Business in the City

Anya Cole, who was born in Poland and studied classical ballet, performing with the Metropolitan Opera in Poland, learned to knit as a young girl. “If you want it, you have to learn to make it,” was what her mother would tell her.
Today, Cole oversees a luxury knitwear business called Hania New York, employing craftswomen to handknit garments in all five boroughs of New York City. Cole uses Scottish and Italian cashmeres from the finest mills in the world to create one-of-a-kind garments for women, men and children.
After leaving Poland, Cole escaped to Germany and immigrated to the U.S. 29 years ago not speaking a word of English. She got a job in merchandising at Regatta Sport. After taking some time off to raise her daughter, she launched her own business, Hania New York in 2012. Hania New York sells retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Gorsuch and specialty boutiques throughout the country.
“Knitters find me,” said Cole, noting it’s often through word of mouth. Today, she has 100 women knitting for her. They are freelancers and get paid by the piece.

Kate Hudson Opens First Fabletics Store in New York City

Fabletics is flexing its retail muscle in New York. On April 27, the El Segundo, Calif.-based activewear line cofounded in 2013 by actress Kate Hudson and part of the TechStyle Fashion Group opens it first physical store at 577 Broadway in Manhattan.
In addition to offering the digital-first brand’s full range of activewear, the 2,743-square-foot SoHo pop-up will have several interactive features to bring its active lifestyle to life, including an Instagram-ready mini boxing ring with custom gloves, and medicine ball installation for on-the-spot crunches.
“We have such a large Tristate consumer base, going to New York was always something we wanted to do from the start,” said Hudson. “What’s exciting about doing the pop-up is we will be able to discover, if we are doing a long-term store, how big and where and what is the most strategic location for the customer. We are super-excited.”

Ozwald Boateng to Debut First Women’s Collection in New York

NEW YORK CALLING: Savile Row tailor Ozwald Boateng will hit New York on May 5 with an immersive fashion experience at the Apollo theater in Harlem, showcasing the brand’s women’s collection.
The show will be a celebration of culture, diversity, music, history and fashion and mark the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance, “starting with a short film on Africanism, and guiding us into the future of artificial intelligence,” according to the company.
VIPs within sports and entertainment are expected to appear at the former Givenchy designer’s runway show, the brand added.

Fur Supporters Plan to Keep Fighting New York City’s Proposed Ban on Fur Sales

Fur industry advocates plan to continue to turn up the heat on the New York City Council, in response to its proposal for a bill that would ban the sale of fur apparel.
Initially put forward by Council Speaker Corey Johnson and City Council members Mark Levine, Fernando Cabrera, Justin Brannan, Helen Rosenthal and Robert Holden, the proposal has since been moved to the Committee on Consumer Affairs and Business Licensing for further discussion.
If approved, violations would be punished by a civil penalty of no more than $ 500 for the first violation, and no less than $ 500, but no more than $ 1,500 for subsequent violations. Fur apparel sold or offered for sale would be subject to seizure and forfeiture.
Nancy Daigneault, vice president of the Americas for the International Fur Federation, said Friday that a number of furriers and other fur advocates have met with their respective council members and have contacted their offices. “In the last week, furriers have been picking up the phone and calling themselves and meeting with City Council members in their district, or sometimes staff if the members aren’t available,” she said. “We’re hopeful that the city will listen that it’s an ill-conceived ban.

Unmasking New York Times Photographer Bill Cunningham One Frame at a Time

COMPLETELY FRAMED: Inclined to spend 10 hours outdoors each day shooting and to cover 16 or 17 parties a week, New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham amassed a slew of photographs.
Nearly three years after the photographer’s death at the age of 87, his friends Steven Stolman and former coworker John Kurdewan offered a slide show celebration of his life Wednesday night at the Museum of the City of New York. Along with the runway shots and on-the-town party pictures, there were numerous images of the always-smiling street photographer on and off duty.
Stolman said The Times is doing “an extraordinary retrospective coffee table book,” which is due out this fall. “Bill Cunningham: On the Street: Five Decades of Iconic Photography” is set to be published by Clarkson Potter on September 3. Meanwhile, Kurdewan has an “amazing collection of memorabilia, personal photographs, letters, Post-it notes and other keepsakes from working with Cunningham that would make for a compelling story, Stolman said. The photographer’s archives prior to 1993 are owned by his family, and those post-1993 belong to The Times, he added. His total estate reportedly was valued at $ 4 million.
Wednesday’s crowd also saw photos of Cunningham’s sparse loft where boxes of files

Restoring Health to the New York Harbor

A chilly morning in New York Harbor, and Mikey DeTemple welcomes the crunch of oyster shells beneath his Sperry BIONIC® sneakers, as he tells us about the importance of the creatures to the health of the harbor.

For this world-renowned photographer and filmmaker, who grew up the son of a clammer on Long Island, these glistening bivalves are a heartening sight.

“Oysters are nature’s greatest water cleaners.”

DeTemple has come down to Governor’s Island, braving the chill Atlantic wind, to photograph the results of the Billion Oyster Project—a massive restoration initiative that’s helped New York’s oysters come roaring back to life. By 2035, the Billion Oyster Project expects to distribute one billion live oysters around New York’s acres of reefs, so the Harbor can reclaim its title as the oyster capital of the world.

 

Sperry

“Progressively, this is the next logical step after you remove plastics from the water. You fill it with oysters.”

Here at the doorstep of America’s largest city, the world’s most prolific natural oyster habitat had grown lifeless over the course of the twentieth century, due in large part to plastic pollution. “Oysters can’t survive in water that’s filled with plastic,” Mikey says. That’s because oysters are filters—in fact, a single oyster can filter more than 50 gallons of water in 24 hours. But today, thanks to the good work of organizations like Sperry and the Billion Oyster Project, people are finding new ways to keep plastics out of waterways. 

 

Sperry

“I think change is happening.”

Mikey has spent most of his life in or near water—and he’s used his platforms as a surfer, photographer and filmmaker to draw attention to the issue of single-use plastic pollution. For Mikey, wearing shoes made from recycled bottles is just one more way of educating people about the problem of plastic in the oceans. “All these little things, wearing these shoes, starting these conversations, add up to one big thing,” he says. 

Mikey sees his Sperry BIONIC shoes as a perfect way to combat the plastic issue. Each pair is woven from, on average, five recycled plastic bottles recovered from coastal areas. That’s five bottles that won’t end up in our waters, making it possible for organizations like Billion Oyster Project to continue their good work of bringing our oceans, bays and waterways back to a natural state. Indeed, Mikey DeTemple views these shoes—like the oyster shells they stand upon—as a sign of hope. He cites Sperry and the Billion Oyster Project as organizations that lift his spirits. 

“Those aren’t government agencies that are doing that,” he says. “Those are people doing that. People who love the water.”

La Marina Shut Down By New York State Liquor Authority

HBO Latino x Pedro Capo: En Letra de Otro

Source: Michael Loccisano / Getty

It’s looking like it’s going to be a cold winter at La Marina. The hotspot in Manhattan’s NY’s Dyckman neighborhood was recently shut down by the New York State Liquor Authority.

According to Patch.com, La Marina is no longer allowed to serve alcohol and New York state is seeking to permanently revoke its liquor license.

La Marina drew the ire of the state after a bar manager was arrested for drug trafficking. Undercover cops claim they purchased large quantities of cocaine, oxycodone and marijuana from Christian Mendez, 33, who was arrested on Nov. 22. Mender reportedly had 32 ecstasy pills on him at the time of his arrest.

This is just the latest struggle for La Marina. Back in July 2018 it was shut down by the Health Department dues to a poor inspection grade.

La Marina is located at 348 Dyckman Street on the Hudson River.

Louis Vuitton Sets New York Pop-Up for Grace Coddington Collaboration

CAT’S MEOW: Louis Vuitton will launch the collaboration between its women’s artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière and fashion editor Grace Coddington at an exclusive pop-up store in New York’s Meatpacking district opening on Friday.
The capsule collection, dubbed Catogram, was first unveiled at Ghesquière’s cruise show in May in the southern French hilltop village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence.
Sporting silk pajamas blending the LV monogram with her signature drawings of felines, Coddington told WWD at the time that the project was born out of her “Catwalk Cats” tome, originally published in 2006, though she updated the characters for the occasion.
“I know they all look the same, but actually, they’re kind of new. I tend to draw them all doing the same thing, because they’re all my cats, and then they’re his dogs as well,” she explained, referring to Ghesquière’s pets Léon and Achilles. “I hopes it makes you smile.”
The designer said he was drawn to Coddington’s quirky persona. “This cruise show is about eccentricity for me. It’s about how an individual can have his own proper style and can start a movement. I love this idea of someone eccentric that mixes things in her own way,” he said.

David Mallett Opens New York Salon at The Webster

David Mallett is bringing his signature brand of Parisian-chic hairdressing to New York.
Mallett, an Australian native whose taxidermy-filled eponymous salon in the Second Arrondissement is something of a fashion insider institution in Paris, is set to open a third location — his first in the U.S. and first outside Paris — on the top floor of Laure Hériard Dubreuil’s The Webster in SoHo, on Oct. 16.
The 1,600-square-foot space will operate as a full-service, eight-chair salon, with color, cutting, styling and treatment services overseen by Mallett himself and staffed by longtime employees of his Paris salons, including two hairdressers, two colorists and a client director. Mallett, who opened his second outpost at The Ritz Paris in 2016, will split his time between New York and Paris going forward.
The salon on the fifth floor of The Webster was designed by French architect Charles Zana to replicate the style of Mallett’s Paris salons, which are inspired by French-style craftsmanship. Lamps, furniture and other decor were custom-made for The Webster by François Pouenat, a fifth-generation French artisan metalworker. In a nod to his native Australia, Mallett partnered with Australia-based Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen on accent pieces. Mallett purposefully to designed the New York space

The Navy SEAL's fresh start lies on the far side of her defeat… Mick Frasier owes his life to his fellow Navy SEALs. Now that he's discharged, one of them offers him another lifeline: a new future on the Caribbean island of Miralinda. But when he arrives at the abandoned sugar plantation he's supposed to whip into shape as an executive training facility, he finds it already under renovations—overseen by the beautiful director of the island's Historical Society. Cara Levasseur is too young for her job. Too pretty. Too…unorthodox. She's heard it all, and now that she's finally secured Villa Sucre, she's not going to let anything get in the way of her first big professional coup. Not even a sexy, strapping ex-Navy SEAL who isn't afraid to turn on the charm—or when that doesn't work, declare all-out war. When she sets up camp in the ballroom, because there's not a chance in hell she's giving up her claim on the estate, Mick stakes out his own territory around the only working bathroom on the property. With tempers flaring and passions running hot, Cara's intent on not letting Mick ruin this opportunity for her—and she doesn't want him to ruin anything, either. Her life plan, for example. Or her heart… ASSIGNMENT: Hot Caribbean Nights Ruined by the SEAL Bound by the SEAL The series will continue in Fall 2018 with Bought by the SEAL and Cherished by the SEAL.

Camera della Moda Responds to New York Times Article

MILAN – A “saddened and concerned” Camera della Moda has responded to The New York Times article on “shadow workers” in Italy, which claims “thousands of low-paid home workers create luxury garments without contracts or insurance.”
”As the acclaimed writer, Edoardo Nesi acknowledges in his award-winning book, ‘Story of My People,’ published in 2013, the Italian supply chain has been under attack for a long time,” the group said in an official statement. “CNMI and its members are committed to working toward making the Italian supply chain resilient, fair and humane on every front. It is a complex process and it takes time; there are no easy solutions, but we are working together through our established Working Group on Social Sustainability and have already achieved substantive gains. We continue to implement solutions using our evidence-base and by working collaboratively.”
At a fashion show here, Carlo Capasa, president of the association, told WWD that this progress was overlooked by Times.
“For example, the NYT article uses statistics on homeworkers that date back to 1973,” read the statement. “The only recent statistics cited are from Tania Toffanin, the author of ‘Fabbriche Invisibili’ who estimated that ‘currently there are 2,000 to 4,000 irregular homeworkers in apparel production.’ Setting this in the context of

How Eva Mendes ‘Saved’ New York & Co.

Many retail brands view celebrity associations as a silver bullet — in good economic times and bad — and there’s been an increased air of desperation to the deal-making as the retail world continues to experience unprecedented changes and challenges. But only the authentic relationships thrive, and companies could take a lesson from New York & Co. when it comes to signing an actress to design a collection.
When the vertical retailer signed Eva Mendes five years ago, the company was established, yet not exactly dynamic. “People liked it, but they didn’t love it, and she brought the emotional piece,” said chief executive officer Greg Scott. “I say in every investor meeting that Eva saved New York & Co. because she was the first talent that said, ‘OK I’m going to take a shot at it.’ She brought her heart and soul to the brand.”
That was evident at Thursday night’s fall and holiday 2018 presentation at The Palace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The event unspooled with a short film — Mendes’ first turn in front of the camera since she had two daughters with husband Ryan Gosling — by writer-director Massy Tadjedin, who directed Mendes in the 2010 film “Last

EXCLUSIVE: Cartier to Unveil Precious Garage Concept at New York Fashion Week

Cartier will unveil its Precious Garage concept during New York Fashion Week, an installation done for the French jeweler by New York-based artist Desi Santiago.
The installation will usher in new iterations of the brand’s Juste un Clou and Écrou de Cartier collections, beginning with a party on Sept. 6 at Cartier’s Fifth Avenue mansion hosted by Mercedes Abramo, president and chief executive officer of Cartier North America, and Bernadette Hitt, director of the Cartier mansion.
Santiago has made a name for himself bridging art and fashion, staging performance and installation-based exhibitions at New York’s MoMa PS-1 and Art Basel Miami. He previously collaborated with the iconic French jeweler on a project at Salone del Mobile in Milan last year.
The Juste un Clou was created in the Seventies by Cartier designer Aldo Cipullo in New York. Using his concept of hardware as jewelry, Cipullo first created the Love Bracelet, and later the Juste un Clou, which reconceptualizes a nail as a piece of jewelry. In 2017, the brand reimagined Cipullo’s hardware concept with the Ecrou de Cartier, which interprets the head of a nut and screw as a bracelet and ring.

Angela Yee Named New York Public Library Ambassador

West Indian American/Caribbean American Heritage Reception

Angela Yee will help usher a new generation of readers. She has just been named an ambassador for The New York Public Library.


As a longtime cardholder, the media personality will encourage students to take advantage of all the books, periodicals, and films available at the 143 branches within the New York metropolitan area. She will also participate in New York Public Library events, campaigns, and programs, and is planning to host her book club at library branches across the city.

“Some of my best memories growing up in New York are the times I spent in the public library where I developed my love for reading” Yee shared. “I decided in first grade that I would go to college and be an English major, which I did. There are so many programs and so much to love about your local branch, and I’m excited to become a New York Public Library Ambassador to explore that with you.”

In a statement, NYPL President Anthony W. Marx applauded her continued commitment to the community. “Angela Yee is a remarkable person whose success as a radio personality, entrepreneur, and writer is equaled by her insatiable desire to give back to her city and its people.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chirlane McCray inducted the Brooklyn native at their annual West Indian-American and Caribbean-American Heritage celebration at Gracie Mansion on Tuesday, August 28.

Beef Alert: Chief Keef Shot At Outside New York Hotel

Berner Presents Hippie Hill

Source: Tim Mosenfelder / Getty

After the tough talk from Tekashi 6ix9ine, reports broke out this morning that Chief Keef was shot at this morning in front of a New York hotel. Tekashi named Keef and fellow Chicago rapper Lil Reese in a threatening message daring the Drill artists to kill him in 48 hours.

New York Post reports:

But the would-be assailant missed the mark, instead striking a sign in the front of the W Hotel on Broadway near West 47th St. around 5 a.m., sources added.

Cops are hunting for two men in connection to the shooting.

Chief Keef, who released his latest album The GloFiles (Pt. 1) last month and boasts 4.7 million followers on Instagram, may have been having a social media beef with a rival rapper from Brooklyn, according to a police source.

From the sounds of this, it appears that it will be a very hot summer.

We don’t know much about Eva Lopez except that she does a little modeling, a little dancing, a little bartending and is a loving mom while looking drop dead gorgeous doing so. Ms. Lopez is our latest Baes & Baddies entry, and she’s definitely showing out for the Big Apple.

Based on what we can gather from her popping IG page, Lopez does most of her work in the city that never sleeps.  Aside from looking dope and showcasing her growing boy here there, it appears Lopez gets it in at various spots around the city as a dancer, hostess, bartender and more.  And she also has a love of Hip-Hop with photos of the late Chinx, Wacka Flocka Flame and others.

New York Fashion Week Is Flush With Experimental Formats

Much ado has been made of the state of New York Fashion Week: Is it less relevant? Is it better than ever? Is it moving to the summer? Does runway still matter?
Answers to all of those questions are elusive, but one thing is for certain: the fashion calendar is ever changing.
This season is marked by an absence of familiar names in familiar time slots. In addition to those that decamped to Paris last year — Altuzarra, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and Thom Browne — Public School, Creatures of the Wind and Baja East are absent from the runway calendar. Rihanna’s star power will be missed this season, as Puma has no plans to show a Fenty Puma x Rihanna collection for fall. Rihanna originally signed a three-year contract in December of 2014. It could not be learned if her contract had been renegotiated.
Photos and films are the chosen avenue for many. For the first time since launching Monse in 2015, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim have opted to show their collection via a short film directed by Fabien Constant to be screened at a party on Tuesday in lieu of a runway show. Still, Garcia and Kim aren’t stepping away from the runway

Louis Vuitton Opens Sneaker Pop-Up in New York

Ugly sneakers have stampeded into luxury fashion to become the improbable “it” shoe in the last year. So much so that Louis Vuitton, where Nicolas Ghesquiere introduced the Nineties sci-fi Archlight with a generously proportioned cushy sole for spring, is opening a pop-up shop specifically devoted to the style for a month in New York City. The temporary store will open at 122 Greene Street in SoHo on Thursday in advance of the worldwide launch of the Archlight sneaker on Feb. 23. The store will remain open until March 10. The SoHo space, chosen because the sneaker clientele tends to be a downtown crowd, and designed by the Louis Vuitton team, will be the only sneaker pop-up — the house has done fragrance pop-ups in the past — and will carry an exclusive all-black colorway of the style. Sneakers aren’t new for Vuitton but the Archlight was a major statement on Ghesquiere’s spring runway, shown in contrast to the elaborate 18th-century inspired ready-to-wear pieces.

The Louis Vuitton Archlight sneaker in all black will be exclusive to the SoHo pop-up.

Tom Ford to Show Men’s at New York Fashion Week

The mystery designer has been identified.
Tom Ford will take the final spot on the men’s portion of the New York Fashion Week calendar next month with a runway show on Feb. 6. The show will be held at 8 p.m. at the Park Avenue Armory, immediately following Joseph Abboud at 7 p.m.
Although Ford has shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His most recent New York show was in September of 2017 when he kicked off New York Fashion Week with a women’s show at the Armory. His spring 2018 men’s line was shown in Milan.
Last month, the Council of Fashion Designers of America said that it had pushed back the dates of New York Fashion Week: Men’s slightly to Feb. 5 through Feb. 7, immediately preceding the women’s shows that start on Feb. 8 — and creating one big 10-day dual-gender event. At the time, Mark Beckham, vice president of marketing for CFDA, hinted that another “big-name designer” was about to jump onto the men’s calendar, but it took until Monday for Ford to be identified as

New York Cares and The Fashion Foundation Help New Yorkers in Need

‘TIS THE SEASON: More than halfway to its goal of collecting 125,000 donated coats, this year’s annual New York Cares Coat Drive has less than a week to go.
New Yorkers can drop off coats at multiple locations including the group’s West 31st Street warehouse, any New York Police Department precinct, all Queens library branches and Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station through Dec. 31. Those who don’t have jackets to give can text “coat” to 41444 to donate money that will be used by the nonprofit to buy and deliver coats. The city has at least 1.7 million people living below the poverty line including 60,000 who are without permanent housing, according to a New York Cares spokeswoman.
The group has collected and donated 1.8 million coats to New Yorkers in need over the past 29 years. This year’s requests from shelters, social service agencies and schools is an increase compared to last year’s tally of 109,000 coats.
Another local group, The Fashion Foundation, recently wrapped up another charitable initiative. Founder Amanda Munz helped to brighten the holidays for 100 students in three different Brooklyn schools by arranging for each of them to receive a complementary gift-laden backpack.

Maria Cornejo to Serve as Brand Ambassador at Première Vision New York

CORNEJO’S CRYSTAL CLEAR VISION: Première Vision and the Council of Fashion Designers of America have crowned Maria Cornejo as the brand ambassador for next month’s Première Vision New York.
The designer is crafting a selection of exclusive designs for the show, putting to use textiles from the Swiss company Schoeller Textil. She said of the collaboration, “First, I am a total fabric nerd. I start always with fabric, draping. That’s the way we design the collection, designing the fabric. Secondly, the collection is going more and more toward sustainability.”
The show will run Jan. 16 and 17 at Pier 94 in New York.
The opportunity to work with Schoeller, the 2017 Fashion Smart Creation prize at the last PV Awards, was a selling point for Cornejo who also commended the company’s avant-garde reputation in this arena. The Swiss textiles maker was honored for its double-face fabric with a color-contrasting back in ECONYL yarn. “This was an amazing opportunity. There was no reservation for me to do it because it was also about spotlighting sustainability, showing that it doesn’t have to be boring,” she said. “It can be design. It doesn’t have to be granola or look beige. There are different ways to approach

Eva Longoria Readies for New York Fashion Week Debut With Kia STYLE360

IT’S A FIRST: Eva Longoria, Rosario Dawson and Alysia Reiner are part of the batch of well-known newcomers that will be showing during next month’s New York Fashion Week.
They will be part of Kia STYLE360’s roster at Metropolitan West, which is located at 639 West 46th Street where live-streaming the shows, 360-degree virtual reality broadcasts and Facebook Live will all be part of the deal. Staring things off on Sept. 11, will be Studio 189 by Dawson and Abrima Erwiah. The proactive duo are trying to use artisanal sustainable fashion as an agent for social change.

Exclusive: Ralph Lauren’s Major Move for New York Fashion Week

Ralph Lauren is capable of doing big things. In the lead-up to a New York Fashion Week season that has been fraught with controversial defections of major talent, Lauren, a true blue American designer if there ever was one, is staying put (relatively) and stepping it up. He will stage his September runway show Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at Ralph’s Garage in Bedford, N.Y., with a private formal dinner to follow the show.
The venue is Lauren’s private garage housing his collection of rare automobiles, which will be the backdrop for the show. It’s one of the most valuable car collections in the world, featuring models such as a 1938 Bugatti Atlantic, a 1929 Bentley Blower, an orange 1996 McLaren F1 LM and multiple vintage red Ferraris. In 2011, 17 cars from Lauren’s collection were shown in an exhibition at the Musée Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
To accent the masculine/feminine nature of automobile design, for the first time Lauren will also show the Ralph Lauren Purple Label men’s wear alongside the women’s collection. The show will continue the see-now-buy-now strategy that the company started a year prior — all looks from the show will be available immediately to consumers globally.

Barneys and Chill: Barneys New York Erects a Winter Wonderland in Its Holiday Windows

barneys windows

Madison Avenue and 61st Street is probably the last place you’d look for a 4-foot-high ice castle, but leave it to Barneys New York to subvert expectations. A glowing ice sculpture, gleaming in rainbow lights like an Antarctic Gaudí creation, occupies one of the department store’s holiday windows, which are getting their official unveiling tonight. For the berg to survive in the haute environs, Barneys was required to turn its window bay into a life-size freezer set to a temperature between -5 and 15 degrees Fahrenheit. A team from Ice Castles, the Utah-based company specializing in larger-than-life ice environments that created the  living, growing sculpture, will be on hand to tend to it as needed, though as Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman notes, “The risk is that if everything goes haywire, we’ll have a swimming pool in there.” (His solution to that emergency? “If it turns to water, well, maybe we’ll get goldfish!”)

The icy sculpture is one of four window installations—which are united by the theme “Chillin’ Out”—designed to wow the holiday crowds. There’s also a slot-car racetrack with Swarovski-studded miniature Lexuses; a serene installation by glass artist Dale Chihuly with light projections by the digital video company Christie; and another life-size freezer where Moncler Gamme Bleu–clad members of Brooklyn’s Okamoto ice-carving studio will be crafting penguins, dogs, bunnies, and other creatures out of ice.

Four windows, a visual space that spans a Manhattan block, and only one fashion placement? Where other department stores go for baroque installations filled to the brim with stocking stuffers and twinkling gowns, Freedman prefers sparse-yet-surreal environments. “It would be a huge mistake for us to be doing the kind of work we’re doing if it didn’t appeal to our customer, and I do think that the man, woman, or child who is coming to Barneys is expecting, and almost waiting, to see how creative or how original we can be,” he said.

Some initiatives surrounding this year’s installations include the introduction of Penny and Quinn, a stuffed penguin toy and 3-foot-high penguin cutout in leather jackets who will be mailed to famous Barneys fans for selfie sessions. (Barneys launched this concept last year with SQRL, a festive squirrel designed as a part of its “Baz Dazzled” windows with Baz Luhrmann.) There will also be an Instagram contest where fans can compete to have their handles carved in ice and Tidal playlists streaming in front of the windows.

That says nothing of the windows’ second lives online. In the four hours I spent watching the displays going up, the Barneys team had to wrestle phones from onlookers’ hands and physically block passersby who were eager to share the colorful action with friends. “This is a case where social media, the idea of people making their own films, has really inspired us to actually do more interesting work,” Freedman explained. “We now begin with the idea that these windows are, basically, the first iteration of something that is going to live in a very different virtual world, in a far more powerful way.”

From Tbilisi to New York and Back: Two Designer and Stylist Friends Reunited for a Hit Collection

It’s just after Tamuna Ingorokva’s highly anticipated show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi, and I’m sitting cozily on a bench with the designer and stylist Ketevan Gvaramadze. Ingorovka has just shown a refreshing series of stellar tailored looks—silk high-waisted trousers, sliced-and-diced car-wash skirts, and wispy, paneled slip dresses—and it was a hit with showgoers. The room we’re in is decked out with promotional goods; rows of attendees tote designer bags and teeter past in vertiginous heels. The whole idea of Fashion Week, no matter where you are, is always symbolic of luxury. But this room, radiating with heat and saturated with artificial light, is a blazing reminder that in this part of the world, electricity itself was once a luxury, often out of reach even for those in fashion. Living in a perpetually crisis-ridden Georgia has been a struggle for its citizens—and Gvaramadze and Ingorokva can attest to that. The two women grew up in the tumultuous Caucasus country, first under the rule of the Soviet Union, then during the Georgian Civil War between 1991 and 1993, and through the late ’90s when the country was struck with an energy shortage. During that period, people would go for hours to days without electricity—and when they did have power, it was sporadic.

Gvaramadze and Ingorokva met as children through their mothers, who are both doctors and best friends. They lost touch in the late 1990s: Gvaramadze left Georgia at 18 in 1999 after her grandfather, father, and boyfriend died. “I was extremely sad, and it was that time that we had no lights. It was a black, dead city, like a black hole,” says Gvaramadze. “I couldn’t do anything in my country.” Once she arrived in the United States, she applied for political asylum as a refugee and found work as a nanny and as a Georgian-to-Russian translator. “It was such a better life here than back home,” she says. “I ended up staying and never going back.”

Meanwhile, back home, Ingorokva studied fashion at Esmod in Munich and later at Esmod in Paris in 1999. In 2002, she showed her first collection, Spring 2003, in Tbilisi. During this period, Georgia was still experiencing an energy crisis. “We had vodka backstage so the girls wouldn’t freeze,” says Ingorokva. “It was in an old, old, rundown theater. We had oil heaters everywhere. In my atelier, we were working with oil heaters because the lighting was out there, too.” Despite failing circuits, the collection was a success: It was shown on FashionTV and, eventually, Ingorokva opened a store in Tbilisi.

Back stateside, Gvaramadze had begun waitressing at venues like the fashion industry–frequented Giorgione as well as the Gansevoort Hotel. It was at Giorgione where she became acquainted with David Bonnouvrier, founder of DNA Models, and his then-wife Siobhan Bonnouvrier, the fashion director of Allure. “One day the hotel was having a party for Allure and I was working it,” says Gvaramadze. “I saw Siobhan and she was like, ‘What are you doing here?’ And I completely joked, ‘Do you want to hire me?’” The next week at Giorgione, Gvaramadze received a call from Bonnouvrier asking her to come on set. “That was it,” she says. In 2006, Gvardazme started working as an assistant at Allure (“I would come in Converse and T-shirts”), where she would also meet the magazine’s creative director, Paul Cavaco, and eventually she was promoted to associate fashion editor, all the while still working as a waitress at the Boom Boom Room. “I didn’t even know who Anna Wintour was!” she admits. “My mom is a doctor and my dad was a landscape architect—putting clothes together wasn’t even a job and I had zero clue,” she says. “But they [Cavaco and Bonnouvrier] trained me. I don’t know why these two were so good to me and so patient with me. They taught me everything.” In 2009, Gvaramadze left her position at Allure and her gig at the Boom Boom Room to become a freelance stylist. Among the many magazines Gvaramadze now works with is Vogue, for which she styles on a regular basis.

Fast-forward a couple years more to 2011: After 12 years of not being allowed to travel back to Georgia due to the immigration process, Gvaramadze was finally able to return. There, she reconnected with Ingorovka. “For 12 years we weren’t communicating,” says Gvaramadze. “But when we started again, it was natural. Very organic.” They continued to keep in touch, mostly through a texting app. When Ingorovka was designing her latest collection, Gvaramadze would advise and make suggestions via WhatsApp. “I always had something to say!” says Gvaramadze.

Ingorokva showed that collection at Tranoï in New York, linking up again with Gvaramadze, and attracting the attention of a PR firm, whose owner liked the clothes so much he asked to keep them in the showroom. When the designer returned home to Georgia, she was invited to participate in Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi, but her pieces were thousands of miles away in New York. But that’s what friends are for: Gvaramadze, whose shoot had just been canceled, hopped on the next plane with Ingorokva’s collection and styled the show. On top of that, Ingorokva was able to book the world-famous Georgian classical musician Nikoloz Rachveli at the last minute to play a live concert with his orchestra in place of a standard runway soundtrack. “It all came together in the end!” she says.

It’s a few days after the show, and Ingorokva and I are sitting in a farm-to-table–style Georgian restaurant adorned with pretty lamps. By this time, Gvaramadze has flown back to the U.S. and is emailing me that she is going straight from the plane to One World Trade Center to style a shoot for Vogue. I relay the message to Ingorokva—we’ve just been discussing the likely prospect of her coming to New York to show her collection next season. Suddenly, the room goes dark. “It’s the ’90s again!” Ingorokva jokes. But the bulbs flicker back on, dousing the room with yellow rays, and we laugh. Turns out there is a light at the end of the tunnel after all.
