Joyce Azria’s New Line Rohb Adapts to Amazon

Joyce Azria has proven adept at adaptation, having grown up in her family’s BCBG Max Azria business, then exiting in 2016 to launch her own direct-to-consumer young contemporary brand Avec Les Filles as shoppers’ preferences shifted to branded, designer-driven, omnichannel merchandise.
Now she’s delving deeper into the online space — specifically Amazon — with a new, under-$ 50 basics brand called Rohb, which made its debut in beta mode on the e-commerce behemoth this week, with its own shoppable site coming soon.

A look from Joyce Azria’s new line, Rohb

While some brands may see Amazon as a black hole or point of no return, Azria thinks it’s an opportunity to expand her retail universe, which includes occasion dresses, activewear and jewelry extensions for Avec Les Filles, a low-caffeine energy drink called Miron that’s also sold on Amazon Prime, and a podcast aptly called “Success Redesigned.”
“I’m already on Amazon buying home staples, so for fashion, I wanted to keep it uncomplicated, too. Women are already buying basics on Amazon when they’re buying diapers or trash bags,” she said.
While she stops short of calling Rohb an Amazon brand, instead noting that it’s a distribution platform and the brand will have its own direct-to-consumer

Fashion for Conservation Debuts Campaign to Protect Amazon Rainforest

Fashion for Conservation presented two collections during London Fashion Week that were inspired by the Amazonian rain forest to raise awareness about the damaged ecosystem. Each collection featured zero waste and included materials from end of bolt textiles from interior design companies and upcycled pieces from donated clothes.
Kent-based designer Kalikas Armour opened the Rainforest Runway show with a collection inspired by the indigenous tribes who are living, and subsequently suffering, within the rain forest as the ecosystem declines. He sourced ethically made fabrics from around Europe and produced the one-off pieces in his studio. The black and gold collection was focused on eveningwear including shimmery gowns in varying lengths, sweeping opera coats and sequined suits with gold floral motifs.
Houston-based designer René Garza for the Magpies & Peacocks nonprofit design house utilized off-cuts and end of bolt textiles and discarded clothes and tablecloths and gave them a new life as beautifully draped dresses — some were long and fluid while others were nipped at the waist or featured plissé detailing. The show closed with a billowing yellow gown that started life as a tablecloth.
Celebratory cocktails followed the show, where Fashion for Conservation raised funds for Hoja Nueva, a non-profit organization that
