Anya Hindmarch Urges Public to Chill During London Fashion Week

A CLOUDY DAY IN LONDON TOWN: Anya Hindmarch loves putting on a wacky show. Past ones have featured spinning teacup rides or handbags singing show tunes while the latest is an immersive, Instagram-able presentation for the press and the public with big, fat bean bags shaped like clouds, a live choral concert and lots of meditative moments.
The installation, Chubby Cloud by Anya Hindmarch, is a three-day event that’s taking place at Banqueting House, the neo-classical gem designed by Inigo Jones. The great hall has a vast Peter Paul Rubens on the ceiling and once Saturday morning’s giddy guests had jumped, vaulted and flopped down on the big white bean bag that nearly took up the room, they could view that painting like never before.
On Saturday, a BBC presenter invited guests to relax on the cloud while he read “The Shipping Forecast,” a regular radio weather report for the seas around the U.K. (many British people find this both informative and soothing) as Hindmarch spoke briefly about the virtues of taking a break. The accessories designer has booked a lineup of ticketed talks, meditations, music and bedtime stories over the three-day period.

Hindmarch opened a cloud-themed cafe for a 3-day consumer event known as

British Fashion Council Spearheads Data Visualization Project Before LFW

LONDON — The British Fashion Council will be putting the spotlight on data — and the social reach of London Fashion Week — via a joint partnership with tech companies including Google and Holition during a five-day showcase that starts on Friday.
The new project, dubbed Blossoming Fashion Conversation, will showcase the number of posts and the reach of a series of LFW-related topics on social media and other digital outlets. Topics will include sustainability, model health, luxury and streetwear climates, designer and production heritage, emerging talent, diversity in the industry and overall innovation.
The data will be collected from keywords and hashtags on social platforms, as well as the British Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar web sites. It will be showcased in the form of a tree with different roots and branches. Each root will represent the reach of LFW-related articles, while the branches will indicate the total number of social media mentions each topic gains during the event. The graphics will be showcased on screens at 180 Strand, the main BFC runway venue.
The aim of the project is to explore new immersive ways of showing fashion. The BFC is also looking to educate the LFW audience, which includes industry members and the public,

London Fashion Week Goes Fur-Free

LONDON — London designers have rejected real fur, and no one will be using it on the London Fashion Week catwalks for the spring 2019 season.
The British Fashion Council said Friday that no one plans to show fur in their collections, according to its recent survey of all on-schedule designers.
The news comes on the heels of Burberry’s decision to eliminate fur from its collections, with the exception of shearling, and follows similar policies by brands including Gucci, Versace, Jimmy Choo and Michael Kors.
The BFC’s survey on fur was part of the organization’s Positive Fashion initiative, which aims to educate designers to make ethical choices and reduce waste in their supply chain.
The BFC itself has not banned fur, and said that while it advises designers to operate in sustainable ways, it cannot interfere with their creative processes.
In the last year, anti-fur activists have been making their presence felt outside BFC venues, demanding that the organization impose a total fur ban on catwalk and presentation designers.
“The BFC supports the creativity of designers and keeps an open dialogue with the industry, from designers to media, retailers, business leaders, government and global brands while encouraging designers to make ethical choices when it comes to their selection

Ikea and Virgil Abloh to Stage Pop-Up Shop During Paris Fashion Week

MAGIC CARPET: Virgil Abloh is set to spark another Paris Fashion Week stampede once again, with a pop-up shop offering a selection of limited edition Ikea rugs by the designer set to hit the city’s Cité de la Mode et du Design on Sept. 29.
Dubbed “Still Loading” — in quote marks bien sûr — the event will serve as a taster for the designer’s home collection with the Swedish retailer due to launch in late 2019.
“We just couldn’t wait. A lot of people are engaged and curious about this collaboration….and we constantly get the question when we will make it available to people. So we decided to respond to this by speeding things up a bit and releasing a few rugs,” said Henrik Most, creative leader at Ikea Range and Supply. The designs “say a lot about the collaboration and who Virgil is,” he added. “They are bold, contemporary and carry messages of our time.”
Abloh, founder of Off-White and men’s artistic director at Louis Vuitton, said he believes the designs “can become art pieces you put on the wall just as much as functional objects in a home. Like, “Hey! I own this coveted piece.’”

Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta Raises $800,000 for Area Organizations

MOTHER KNOWS BEST: The 26th annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares event at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta on Monday night raised more than $ 800,000 for Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta AIDS Fund and the Medical University of South Carolina. The tally since the event’s inception: more than $ 15 million raised for the beneficiaries.
Jeffrey Kalinsky, who operates two stores in Manhattan and Atlanta, unveiled a third unit in Palo Alto, Calif., on Wednesday.
“It’s a 12-minute runway show preceded by a live auction, which is preceded by a cocktail hour,” said Kalinsky, who admitted that he’s perfected a formula for keeping the event moving apace. “All that happens before we get seated. We keep the welcome remarks brief so we can get people out of there without having to listen to speeches. The evening is really all about fun and fashion.”
Dries Van Noten, Balenciaga, Dior, Saint Laurent Paris, Céline, Sacai, Givenchy and Calvin Klein were among the designers shown. “We had four looks at the end of the show by a designer, Edda, who’s based in Norway and does these beautiful cotton-printed dresses. We found her at the LVMH Prize showroom,” Kalinsky said. “It’s really a good opportunity to showcase a number of younger designers.

How a Young Designer Produces a Fashion Show

While the industry continues to question the importance of New York Fashion Week, Shanel Campbell, a 26-year-old Parsons graduate, believes the platform is still important.
She will embark on her first fashion show on Sept. 5, a little bit ahead of the official start of fashion week, and here she outlines how she’s producing a show and what she hopes to achieve. This is the second story in a series that will follow Campbell as she develops her collection and builds a business. WWD previously spoke to Campbell about what she envisions for her brand after being endorsed by Solange Knowles and Issa Rae.
WWD: What are your plans for fashion week?

Shanel Campbell: It’s going to be a runway show into a presentation and it’s 18 looks. I want it to be very intimate so you can take your time and look at everything. I don’t want too much thrown at people. When you see too much, you start to not care. When I see a huge collection on my phone, I just start swiping and swiping and swiping. It’s going to be really fun. Very informal and more of a community gathering than an uptight fashion show. But the fashion show element

EXCLUSIVE: Jordyn Woods Unveils Fashion Label, Secndnture

Jordyn Woods: activewear designer.
Woods, a Wilhelmina model and influencer, is launching a fashion label called Secndnture, pronounced second nature. The debut line is a size-inclusive, 24-piece collection of activewear made in partnership with apparel manufacturing company Instaco.
“I always wanted to start my own business,” Woods said over the phone from Los Angeles. “I chose the name Secndnture because everything in life that comes natural to you is second nature. I thought it would be perfect for activewear because your activewear should feel like a second skin.”
Secndnture’s debut collection spans sports bras, bodysuits, biker shorts, high-waisted leggings, tops and jackets. Sizes go from XS to 2X with prices ranging from $ 45 to $ 79. The line, manufactured in China in a WRAP-certified factory, will launch on Aug. 30 as a digital first brand with pop-ups to come. Future releases will be limited edition and will take place every couple of months.
Woods, 20, has previously collaborated with BooHoo and Addition Elle on apparel, as well as with Barney’s on a shoe line. She is known for her close friendship with Kylie Jenner, with whom she currently lives, and has appeared in Jenner’s reality TV series “Life of Kylie,” as well as “Keeping Up With the

Fashion 4 Development to Honor Busquets, Heard, Goulding, Dunn at Ladies Luncheon

Carmen Busquets, Amber Heard, Edwina Dunn and Ellie Goulding will be among the honorees at Fashion 4 Development’s First Ladies Luncheon next month.
The Sept. 25 event will be held at the Pierre Hotel, during the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly. Organized by Evie Evangelou, the gathering underscores messages of women’s empowerment, sustainability and environmentalism. Acknowledging how F4D has been committed to these fundamentals for years, Evangelou said, “I have not changed my approach, but I am happy to see the worldwide wave has finally arrived.”
A new element to this year’s luncheon will be evident during the fashion show. In years past, couture designers like Elie Saab, Ralph & Russo and Guo Pei staged runway shows at the Pierre Hotel. This time, there will be a fashion show by the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange Project that featured 30 sustainable dresses made by designers from different parts of the world. Eco Age, Swarovski, Woolmark and Matches Fashion are helping to make the show possible. The CFEP made its debut at a private reception at Buckingham Palace, during London Fashion Week in February.

Harper’s Bazaar Australia Editor in Chief Kellie Hush Quits to Launch Fashion Venture

SYDNEY – Harper’s Bazaar Australia editor in chief Kellie Hush announced on Saturday she will step down from her position after six years to launch “a unique fashion brand.”
Hush will leave the magazine on Aug. 31, with the September 2018 edition her final issue.
Deputy editor and beauty/features editor Eugenie Kelly will take over as acting editor.
A representative for publisher Bauer Media confirmed Hush has resigned but declined to comment further, noting the company will be releasing a statement on Monday.
“I’m not Anna Wintour,” said Hush, “but I think people start speculating about [editors] moving on and I made the decision, it was a personal decision, I’m doing something really exciting which I want to do.”
She added, of her abrupt announcement, which blindsided the fashion industry, “When I spoke to my publisher Fiorella Di Santo [after resigning on Friday], I was very clear I wanted to control the message. The business is in great shape, we have just smashed our September budget for advertising. At this stage our sales are up 13 percent on budget, which in this kind of market is smashing it.

Agnona Runway Show to Be Included on Official Milan Fashion Week Calendar

OFFICIAL SLOT: Following a few seasons of presentations and intimate shows, Agnona is making its first appearance among the brands listed by the Italian fashion chamber on September’s Milan Fashion Week official schedule, which Camera della Moda is releasing on Friday.
“It’s a formalization of what we have been doing in the next couple of years, since I joined the brand,” said Simon Holloway, which was tapped by the label’s parent Ermenegildo Zegna Group as Agnona creative director in November 2015. “I’m very happy Agnona is finally on the calendar, which is something the brand deserves, being a champion of the most authentic Made in Italy. Milan is such an incredible family of exciting and diverse brands.”
Holloway said the brand, which will show its spring 2019 collection on Sept. 22 at Milan’s Triennale design museum, is not hosting any mega events, instead keeping it small and intimate.
As part of the company’s retail expansion plan, last May Agnona inaugurated its first store in London, on Albemarle Street in the Mayfair neighborhood, and is opening a flagship in Moscow next fall.

Contemporary Artist Pops Up at Fashion Trade Show

BOOZY STATE OF MIND: American painter Laurance Rassin — best known in the art world as an international star whose impressionistic works bring to mind Picasso and Matisse — has a pops gig in addition to his art work and fashion designs.
The artist has reinvented the ice pop via Fruta Pop, which takes out the high fructose corn syrup and adds in fresh fruits and vegetables, while its “poptails” add a small amount — less than 5 percent — of alcohol infusion. Rassin is a cofounder of the company. Flavors available on the company’s site for the 3 oz. pop include nonalcoholic fruit and juice pops, cold-brew coffee pops and the boozy poptails in flavors of Coconut Rosé, Sparkling Prosecco Mango Mimosa, Moscow Mule and Brosé Rosé. The pops can be ordered for delivery anywhere in the world.
On Sunday and Monday, Rassin was holding court at the contemporary fashion trade show Fame at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan with the Fame logo emblazoned on two pop flavors, Watermelon Margarita and Pina Colada. It’s the latest event-branding campaign for the pops.

ISLAND PRIZE: Italian fashion label Genny was bestowed with the Tao Award for Fashion on July 21, as part of the Taomoda event’s closing night held at the Ancient Theatre venue in Taormina, the luxury beach resort located on the Sicilian island.
“Receiving such a prestigious award pushes me to work harder, exploring Genny’s storied heritage with a look to the future to keep bringing Italian creativity e products all over the world,” said Sara Cavazza Facchini, the brand’s creative director.
Other recipients of the awards in the fashion category included Cividini, Les Copains and Capucci.
Piero Cividini said he was “honored to receive the prize, which highlights and rewards our commitment to stay true to Italian knowhow and creativity.”

Michael Howells, Production Designer in Film and Fashion, Dies at 61

LONDON — Michael Howells, the fashion, film and theatre production designer whose work ranged from the dramatic runway sets for John Galliano’s Dior shows to the period backdrops for ITV’s “Victoria,” has died, according to his company Michael Howells Studio.
Howells, who wove his passion for history, travel, literature and the arts into his dramatic sets and costumes, died Wednesday of complications from a heart condition. He was 61, and is survived by his mother, a sister and a nephew.
A tall, gentle and elegant man with a razor-sharp intellect and fertile imagination, regularly collaborated with Galliano on the designer’s own label and at Dior. He also worked with Christian Lacroix and Alexander McQueen.
In 2007, Galliano told WWD that he would brief Howells — and then let him go wild. “He makes the magic happen and works out how to find a merry-go-round and transform Stade de France into a tumbledown Hamptons holiday,” said the designer. The carrousel from 1900 that Howells eventually found had to be dismantled and brought to the show piece by piece, by crane.
Galliano was referring to the October, 2006 show for his label, which was inspired by “Grey Gardens.” With help from Howells, Galliano had arranged a seaside

Victoria Beckham, Alexa Chung, Bobby Abley Join London Fashion Week Schedule

LONDON — Victoria Beckham is just one of the new names to join the London Fashion Week women’s calendar in September, according to the preliminary LFW schedule, which is now on the British Fashion Council’s web site.
Other newcomers include Alexa Chung, who has been eschewing the traditional show schedule in favor of themed events hosted around the world and a see-now-buy-now format, and men’s wear talents Bobby Abley and Kiko Kostadinov.
Burberry will host its seasonal show on Sept. 17 and though not new to the lineup, all eyes will be on the brand this season since this will be the first show from new creative director Riccardo Tisci.
Beckham will host her spring 2019 show in London on the morning of Sept. 16 and mark the 10-year anniversary of her business. The company also said that more events, exclusive pieces and other activations will take place throughout the year to celebrate the brand’s decade.
The contemporary label Rixo London, best known for its mid-priced printed dresses, will be hosting a see-now-buy-now presentation during the five-day event, which runs from September 14 to 18, while emerging men’s wear labels Bobby Abley and Kiko Kostadinov are also taking the September plunge as they dip

CFDA and NYCEDC Highlight Graduate Fashion Collections

The CFDA and New York City Economic Development Corp. earlier this week held the Fashion Future Graduate Showcase, a three-day showcase of design talent from some of the top fashion schools in the U.S. at Industria Studios. Collections by 53 graduates from schools including Academy of Art University, California College of the Arts, FIT, Kent State University, Parsons, Pratt, Rhode Island School of Design and SCAD were exhibited July 9 and 10, with the top four collections presented on July 11. The students selected for Wednesday’s presentation included Zhouyi Li of the Academy of Art University, Taliah Leslie of Pratt, and Britt Luttio and Peng Ye of Parsons.
All four students took the conceptual route, with Li working her garments with three-dimensional geometric shapes inspired by Richard Serra. Luttio worked with the concept of identity. “Within our persona we have multiple identities,” she said. “How I am in this space is not how I’m going to be with my lover or with my mom.” Her collection featured transformative pieces with a definitive Nineties attitude, that was influenced by things from her childhood — Victoria’s Secret and Betsey Johnson. Ye based his collection on the word 刹那, which represents the shortest accountable

Christian Siriano on Emmys, Inclusivity and New York Fashion Week

Christian Siriano made a summer stop in Los Angeles this week, just in time for Thursday’s Emmy nominations announcement. That night, he hosted a dinner at Chateau Marmont with 11 Honoré, the size-inclusive luxury e-commerce site cofounded by Patrick Herning and Kathryn Retzer. Said Herning, “Christian was one of the first designers we launched with and he’s still one of our best-selling designers a year later. He’s really on board with changing the game.” The designer’s inclusive approach to retail and celebrity dressing has heightened his profile, but he remains as down-to-earth and energetic as ever. “I’m always up sending e-mails in the middle of the night, because otherwise, what are you going to do? We’re there for our customers.”
WWD: When was the last time you were in L.A.?
Christian Siriano: I came for my book launch last November and for a few quick Oscar fittings in January. We dressed almost 17 people and I barely was here. I don’t know how we did that; it was crazy.
WWD: With Emmy nominations on Thursday, has your phone and e-mail already been blowing up?

EXCLUSIVE: Longchamp to Stage First Fashion Show in New York

PARIS — In one of the latest twists in the trans-Atlantic fashion show shuffle, Longchamp is planning to stage its first official runway show at New York Fashion Week this fall. Known for its best-selling Le Pliage bag, the French leather goods firm has expanded its ready-to-wear offering over recent years as part of its repositioning as a lifestyle brand.
The New York show is scheduled for Sept. 8, with the venue yet to be confirmed. The family-owned brand also plans to stage an event on its home turf at the Opéra Garnier in Paris on Sept. 11.
The NYFW show will cap Longchamp’s 70th anniversary celebrations and a U.S.-centric year for the brand. Building on its ambition to be seen as a fashion brand, Longchamp in May opened its Fifth Avenue flagship with a dedicated space for rtw and shoes in the center of the main floor, and launched a clothing and accessories capsule with Shayne Oliver. Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner, the new brand ambassador, is on board for four seasons, beginning with the fall 2018 campaign.
When asked if the New York show will be a one-off, Sophie Delafontaine, Longchamp’s artistic director, said: “We felt that this was the right time to take things to the next level and

Industry Adapts to Shifting Milan Men’s Fashion Week

MILAN — A shrinking show calendar, currency volatility and macro economic issues at the tail end of a period of local political instability following Italy’s general elections were only some of the concerns weighing on executives on the eve of Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
But on the upside, business is chugging along steadily. Revenues generated by the fashion sector last year grew 2.5 percent to 64.8 billion euros, and exports rose 4.3 percent to 50 billion euros, according to Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana’s Fashion Economic Trends report issued in May. The first half is expected to show 1.5 percent growth in sales compared with the same period last year. Last week, the updated Altagamma Worldwide Market Monitor and Bain & Co. study painted a pretty picture, as the global personal luxury goods industry is expected to grow 6 to 8 percent at constant exchange compared with the 5 percent growth forecast last October for 2018.
“Everyone is hoping to see a modicum of stability, which would allow us to set goals in the medium-term, invest in three-year plans without this sense of anxiety hovering over us,” said Paolo Roviera, chief executive officer of Corneliani.

Les Hommes is expanding into streetwear with the launch of the Les Hommes Urban line, which is available for sale at the brand’s Milan showroom during fashion week.
“The LHU collection was born out of a creative and a practical idea. When we go back to the very early days of Les Hommes, there were a lot of urban influences in the collection, such as graffiti and workwear. It is a creative playground that we always embraced and are very fascinated by,” said Tom Notte, who designs the collection with longtime business partner Bart Vandebosch.
“From the practical point of view, we were pushed to launch LHU by the feedback we were getting from our own stores. In Antwerp, where the first store was founded, we were confronted with a demand from young guys who were very interested in our collection, but because of its positioning, it was out of reach for them. We created a streetwear brand that carries the originality of a designer brand since many pieces are treated and designed with the same care as we do for Les Hommes.”

Rochas Names Federico Curradi to Head Men’s Fashion

Rochas has named a new creative director for its men’s wear activity, which it put on hold last year after only two seasons.
The Interparfums-owned fashion house said Italian designer Federico Curradi will be charged with bringing “a new attitude” to Rochas men’s wear going forward. The brand is expected to relaunch in January 2019.
“I am sure Rochas can find its own place in the men’s wear industry and Federico has the talent to bring Rochas to a next level,” stated Interparfums Group and Rochas chief executive officer Philippe Benacin.
Curradi, a native of Florence, launched his own men’s wear label, which shows in Milan, in January 2016 at Pitti Uomo. The designer, who lives in the Florentine countryside, is also creative director of outerwear specialist Peuterey. Born in Florence in 1975, after living in New York for several years he moved back to Italy, first working at Ermanno Daelli, then as head of the men’s styling office at Ermanno Scervino and later becoming head of the men’s collection of Roberto Cavalli in 2005. A year later, he began working at Iceberg on the company’s men’s wear as a consultant. He was also Iceberg’s first men’s wear creative director, succeeded by James

EXCLUSIVE: VFiles Announces Runway 10 Show, Mentor Committee for New York Fashion Week

It’s back to the runway for VFiles, which will be holding its 10th show on Sept. 5.
Last season, instead of the traditional runway/performance extravaganza the company hosts, it staged “Be Heart, Make Noise,” an immersive music and fashion event done in collaboration with Adidas Originals. In the past, runway shows included celebrity guest judges such as Khloé Kardashian and Young Thug. For VFiles Runway 10, the brand is bringing its event a bit more down to earth by, for the first time, appointing a committee of eight industry leaders that will select and mentor show contestants throughout their journey to New York Fashion Week. After that, the VFiles team will provide mentorship for the following season. The pivot brings a slightly more serious — yet welcome — tone to the show that has otherwise been high on experimental fashion.
The mentor committee includes: Julie Anne Quay, founder and chief executive officer of VFiles; Laura Brown, editor in chief of InStyle magazine; Rio Uribe, designer and founder of Gypsy Sport; Candy Pratts Price, fashion consultant; Anna Trevelyan, stylist and creative consultant; Erin Magee, founder of MadeMe; Paul Cupo, designer, and James Costas-Michael, merchandise director of VFiles.

Fashion Trust Arabia Supports Local Talent with New Prize Initiative

LONDON — As the Arab fashion industry continues to gain ground, a new charitable venture, Fashion Trust Arabia, is being launched and it’s spearheading a new prize initiative to support local design talent through mentorship and funding.
The initiative, which follows on the footsteps of the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Trust, will be chaired by Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser and co-chaired by Sheikha al- Mayassa Bint Hamad Al- Thani and Tania Fares, founder of the Fashion Trust in the U.K.
A wide range of local and international business and fashion leaders are said to participate in the new venture, joining its executive committee or judging panel and mentoring participating designers. Fashion Trust Arabia is yet to announce its committee members.
The launch of the prize aims to coincide with the increased interest in the growth potential of the region’s fashion industry, to support local talent that has so far been operating under-the-radar and spark investment opportunities.
Earlier this year, the Arab Fashion Council – which is now headquartered in Saudi Arabia – also announced a partnership with the British Fashion Council and hosted the first Arab Fashion Week in Riyadh, in a bid to develop a sustainable fashion infrastructure across the Arab world and create new revenue

British MPs to Probe Fast Fashion Business with New Inquiry

LONDON – Fast fashion will be thrust under the spotlight in a new inquiry that was revealed and launched here Friday. The U.K.’s environmental audit committee is looking to reveal the damage done by fast fashion and clean up its environmental footprint.
Investigations will be conducted on fast fashion’s impact, such as its life cycle and carbon and water footprint. It will also focus on providing solutions for waste and pollution reduction. The committee is seeking submissions and contributions to their inquiry by September 3 to inform their first hearing.
“Fashion shouldn’t cost the earth, but the way we design, make and discard clothes has a huge environmental impact. Producing clothes requires toxic chemicals and climate-changing emissions,” said Mary Creagh, chairwoman of the environmental audit committee.
According to a report conducted by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, by 2050 fashion will have consumed over a quarter of the world’s annual carbon budget if it continues to grow at the same rate. Fast fashion encourages a throwaway culture – mass production to capture current trends shortens the lifespan of clothing – and clothes that have been disposed into landfills have contributed to methane emissions.

Iranian Fashion Company Persian Idea to Expand in Europe

LOOKING WEST: Persian Idea, a family-run fashion company based in Tehran, is looking to expand its presence in Europe.
Following its European debut at Pitti Uomo earlier this month with a men’s wear collection presented on the Baglioni Hotel’s rooftop, the company unveiled on Tuesday its plans to grow internationally with the opening of showrooms in Milan and Paris by the end of 2019.
“I think political turmoil could slow down our expansion, but I’m confident we will have both units opened in 2019,” explained Javad Sedghamiz, chief executive officer of the company, which runs the Persian Idea fashion brand.
Focused on growing a local community of fashion designers and keeping the entire pipeline in Iran, the company leverages sustainable production processes and has plans to expand its technological research and development hub, too.
Rather than a fashion brand helmed by one designer, Persian Idea organizes two contests a year, selecting each time a group of eight winning designers among the most talented applicants. The group of designers is committed to developing the seasonal collections for men and women. The collections are focused on a genderless approach and are rooted in the country’s cultural DNA.

Vin + Omi, London College of Fashion Spin Plastic Bottles into Clothes

ALL BOTTLED UP: Vin + Omi, the London-based label whose conceptual designs straddle luxury and sustainability, has partnered with London College of Fashion to launch Bin 2 Body, an initiative that will collect plastic bottles from the shows and turn them into fashion.
“We’re going to turn all of the plastic bottles into fabric and then, in August, we’re going to turn them into accessories. Then we’re going to partner up with a store and all the proceeds will go to a London salvage group,” said Omi.
Students from the college have designed bespoke bins that have been placed at the London Fashion Week Men’s show venues to collect used water bottles. The bins will be emptied daily and sent to processing labs that will transform the bottles into textiles with low microfiber release.
Vin + Omi’s designs will be showcased in September at London Fashion Week.
The Bin 2 Body scheme is part of a larger initiative at London College that began 10 years ago when the school launched a new M.A. course that put sustainability at the heart of the curriculum.

Postapocalyptic Theme Ran Through 5,000 Works at London’s Graduate Fashion Week

LONDON — This year’s Graduate Fashion Week was one of the largest events to take place in size and ambitions with more than 5,000 pieces of work on display from 500 students — the majority of whom hailed from outside the U.K.
Graduate Fashion Week is a charity that was founded in 1991 and aims to bring together British and international fashion universities and elevate the creative industries.
“We’ve had more visitors than we’ve ever had. We’ve got 37 U.K. universities and 51 international ones, so we have managed to create a global stage for everyone,” said Mark Newton-Jones, chairman of Graduate Fashion Week.
“We’re trying to bridge the gap between graduates and employers, we’ve introduced a protégé program so everyone up for an award tonight will be mentored by a designer or leader in the industry,” he said.
Hosted in east London’s Old Truman Brewery, the awards ceremony opened with a personal message from British Prime Minister Theresa May. “I am very proud of the U.K.’s fashion industry, some of the most iconic brands and biggest names in the business hail from the U.K. Graduate Fashion Week plays such an important role in the process of nurturing the very best talents.”

Abercrombie Is Official Fashion Partner of Jay Z’s Music Festival

Abercrombie & Fitch is the official fashion partner of Jay Z’s music festival “Made in America.”
The two-day festival is curated by rapper Jay Z and produced by Roc Nation. Presented over Labor Day Weekend, the festival is returning to Philadelphia for a seventh year and is expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors and festival-goers. It will showcase nearly 70 acts across five stages. Nicki Minaj and Post Malone will headline the event. They will be joined by Meek Mill, Diplo, Zedd, Miguel, Janelle Monáe, Alessia Cara, Fat Joe, 6lack and others.
The festival this year will benefit the ACLU and United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
Stacia Andersen, brand president of Abercrombie & Fitch and Abercrombie Kids, said, “Made in America is a reflection and celebration of what makes America great — self-expression, ingenuity, individuality, breaking down boundaries — and, as an all-American brand that stands for these values, we are honored to be its official fashion partner.”
Following the inaugural two-day music festival in 2012, the event generated $ 231.9 million in economic impact for the City of Brotherly Love.
Abercrombie was founded in 1892 in New York. The company said it has outfitted “free-thinkers, rule-breakers and world-changes,” and

Blockchain Can Help Authenticate Ownership of Fashion Goods

Global Blockchain Technologies Corp. is partnering with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to build a storage market called Stratus.
The premise of Stratus is to allow businesses to buy and sell excess storage space less expensively than cloud storage — and if they have too much storage space, they can rent out the excess capacity. To keep data safe, it also plans to have clients encrypt the information and then “sharded” into several pieces for storage in separated facilities. That’s supposed to provide a level of security and prevent any single data host from compromising the information in storage.
And while Stratus’ focus is on storage capacity, Global Blockchain’s chief executive officer Shidan Gouran said blockchain itself is a network that can be used for multiple purposes across many industries, including fashion.
Global Blockchain is a Vancouver-based investment firm that is also a blockchain incubator. Stratus is built on the Laser Blockchain, the base of the distributed public blockchain network Ethereum.
Gouran said relying on blockchain for storage is “more secure than the current system,” and much harder to hack.
He spoke of how the system can be used in the area of e-health to store medical records. That storage would allow algorithms to be used to

Central Saint Martins Shows Off Conceptually Charged Designs at BA Fashion Show

LONDON — Central Saint Martins unveiled its annual BA fashion show at the school’s 1Granary campus this week, showcasing works from 41 students. Their designs, ranging from the experimental to the political and conceptual, reflected the breadth of the students’ specializations, including women’s wear, men’s wear, print, fashion design, marketing and knitwear.
Paolina Russo won the L’Oréal Professionnel Young Talent Award. By the time she turned 21, Russo had already been photographed by Kendall Jenner for Love magazine, styled for the band Dream Wife and been named a muse of John Galliano.
The collection was a love letter to Russo’s Canadian hometown, with ensembles drawing heavily from contact sports. She weaved together elbow pads, shin guards and protective gear to create structured outfits, while the final look was a crocheted dress that resembled a soccer ball, albeit a beautiful, wearable one.
The three runners-up included women’s wear student Simon Valer Dacsef, who was also awarded the LVMH Grand Prix scholar prize for his lineup of voluminous flouncy dresses in a sea of bright greens, pinks and blues.
Elsewhere, student René Scheibenbauer’s muted palette radiated peace of mind. Deconstructed tailoring took on soft twisting and draping elements and his black and white palette was punctuated

Western Fashion Touches Down in China

Fashion and industry have long traveled from East to West and back. It’s no different today.
China for centuries has been a place of inspiration for everything from gowns to porcelain, maybe because it has always seemed the farthest from the West, in terms of distance and culture, and that sense of the exotic is still appealing, especially to designers always looking for something new and, if they’re lucky, something previously undiscovered in their own culture.
Appropriation is now a familiar word in fashion, but designers long obsession with China was on extensive display during 2015’s Costume Institute installation “China: Through the Looking Glass,” the museum’s largest installation to date. Head curator Andrew Bolton told WWD at the time that designers and other types of artists see the East “as this culture of unbridled inspiration and creativity.”

 “Many designers tend to look to other cultures, even their own cultures really, on a very surface level,” Bolton said. “It’s about aesthetics really, and they often don’t engage with the cultural context. Certainly, when it comes to Orientalism they engage with motifs.”
And maybe artistic engagement that reads as homage rather than appropriation is the best way to avoid the gaps in cultural understanding

“Historically there has been this notion that designers shouldn’t talk, and I subscribed to that a little bit, but those rules don’t work,” said Omondi, who is Kenyan-American and grew up in the Midwest. “That integrity s–t is so out of the window. It’s not that I am selling out, but I have a point of view and I’m over it.”
Omondi, who graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2011 and held pattern making and design stints at brands including Calvin Klein, The Gap and Suno before launching her women’s line in 2013, said she loves fashion but is over how shrouded it is in smoke and mirrors. And she’s hoping to use her podcast, The Cutting Room Floor, which debuted this week, to lift the veil on an industry she believes is riddled with misinformation.
“I felt a duty to the young people who followed me, who love this industry but they feel shut out and they don’t know how to get in,” said Omondi,

Exclusive: Gucci to Join Paris Fashion Week This Fall

MILAN — Continuing to speak with a French accent this year, Gucci’s Alessandro Michele is joining Paris Fashion Week this fall, WWD has learned.
Decamping from Milan for one season, the Italian luxury brand is to parade its spring-summer 2019 collection in the French capital on Sept. 24. The show marks the crescendo of a three-part homage to France conceived by Michele, creative director.
“Gucci is a global brand with deep and vibrant Italian roots and a visionary French shareholder, Kering,” said Marco Bizzarri, president and chief executive officer of Gucci. “When Alessandro told me of his desire to present the new collection in Paris — continuing the French-inspired narrative — I thought it was a perfect way to continue the creative homage to France.”
Bizzarri underscored that the show date marks the “transition day between Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks to avoid impacting schedules. We will then look forward to returning to Milan in February 2019.”
While foregoing a show in Milan for the season, the company is planning a special event to be held at the Gucci Hub on Wednesday, Sept. 19, the second day of Milan Women’s Fashion Week, scheduled to run Sept. 18-24. Details about the event are being kept under wraps.

RISD Apparel Design Seniors Serve Up Fashion Show With a Little Poetry on the Side

Twenty-three Apparel Design seniors at the Rhode Island School of Design showed their collections Saturday in Providence, but for the second consecutive year the event was held on Brown University’s nearby campus.
By welcoming the 600 guests to an afternoon runway show at the George V. Meehan Auditorium, and then an evening one on the nearby Ivy League campus, RISD ensured that every guest had a front row seat. This year’s talent was selected by a jury made up of Laurie Brewer, associate curator of Costumes & Textiles for RISD Museum of Art; Gill Linton, chief executive officer and editor in chief of Byronesque; William Exaros director of visual merchandising for U.S. multibrand retail at Chanel, and Neil Gilks, associate dean of Fashion, Fashion Design at The New School’s Parsons School of Design.
As an added twist, RISD department head of apparel design Lisa Z. Morgan suggested students use creative writing to further explore “the experiential motivations behind their looks,” as they developed their collections. At the beginning of the fall semester, she asked each of this year’s seniors to consider how their collections would smell if it were a perfume or scent. She said, “Writing connected students more deeply to their

Fashion Entrepreneur Matthew Mellon Dies at 53

LONDON – Matthew Mellon, the heir to banking and oil fortunes, has died aged 53 at a drug rehabilitation center in Mexico. He reportedly battled an addiction to Oxycontin.
An entrepreneur, a private equity investor and Harrys of London founder, Mellon has been linked to a number of fashion designers such as Tamara Mellon, his first wife, who co-founded Jimmy Choo. Noelle Reno, his former fiancée, aided Mellon with the launch of cashmere label Degrees of Freedom. Mellon married Nicole Hanley and together they started a line called Hanley-Mellon. They divorced in 2015.
Adam Drawas, a consultant who helped produce the collection at the time, said: “Matthew has a 100 percent input on the design. He knows color and he has a great eye. Matthew’s background is luxury.”
Born in New York, Mellon was raised in Florida and Maine. He is survived by Tamara Mellon and their daughter, Araminta, and Hanley, his second wife, and their two children Force and Olympia.

New Garments Going on Display at ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’ Exhibition

FASHION HISTORY: Historic Royal Palaces, the charity that manages Kensington Palace, has been working toward adding new, never-before-seen garments for the reopening of the popular “Diana:Her Fashion Story” exhibition, later this month.
The exhibition charts the sartorial history of Princess Diana and highlights important moments in her life through her clothing.
Some of the outfits going on display include the Armani chinos and white shirt she wore to visit the landmine fields in Angola with the International Red Cross in 1997 and a violet body-hugging gown created by Gianni Versace, a dear friend of Diana’s, for a fund-raising dinner at the Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
The pink David Sassoon dress Princess Diana wore en route to her honeymoon with Prince Charles will also be exhibited, alongside pieces by Catherine Walker, Caroline Charles and Victor Edelstein, a leading London couturier in the Eighties.
Princess Diana was also known for championing local designer names during State visits, as illustrated by a cobalt blue pleated gown by the London-based Japanese-born designer, Yuki, worn to a State Dinner with Emperor Hirohito in Tokyo.
The exhibition will reopen on April 26 at Kensington Palace and it’s predicted to attract large crowds as interest on the British Royals is peaking, with

A Look Back: Givenchy on the Changing World of Fashion

It’s easy for one to get stuck thinking about the past, even obsessing over it, but that wasn’t a trap Hubert de Givenchy ever fell into.
Although the legendary designer, who died March 10 at the age of 91, achieved wide success soon after launching his own couture boutique in the early Fifties — aided in part by his high-profile and lasting friendship with Audrey Hepburn who famously wore exclusive Givenchy designs in some of her most beloved movie roles — Givenchy refused to pine for that time.
“I am of tradition, but that doesn’t mean I have an old outlook on life,” he told WWD in 1978, when fashion had veered very far from the structured chic that had once been his calling card.
While the friendship between Hepburn and Givenchy was a much more genuine precursor to the actor-brand-sales matrix we see in fashion today — now an industry all its own — he also dressed society doyennes like Jackie O and Bunny Mellon and never ignored his stable of non-famous devotees.
It’s likely that none of those women were caught limping around Paris in early 1968 after stepping on a needle while trying on brand new Givenchy designs in the house

Carpenter told WWD that as the youngest of four girls, she wore a lot of “hand-me-downs.” When she finally could buy things that fit, Carpenter said she looked to brands such as Aéropostale. As for her decision to team with the teen retailer, Carpenter said, “The price point is reachable for my fans. They want a piece of me, and I loved that these [pieces] are affordable.”
As for the collaborative process, Carpenter said, “I saw sketches and swatches. They had decision makers who gave me their choices, but they were totally open to me saying, ‘Can you make a polo like this?’” She explained that she would give some ideas on how to adjust or tweak the design she was shown.

Vanessa Schindler On Slow Fashion and Her Petit Bateau Capsule

MATERIAL GIRL: “It’s really, really slow fashion,” said Vanessa Schindler who will present a capsule of evening-based looks hand-crafted in her studio in Geneva at the upcoming edition of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories, as last year’s winner of the Grand Prize and Public and City of Hyères awards for the fashion section.
Schindler impressed a jury headed by Schiaparelli’s Bertrand Guyon with her otherworldly collection — “Urethane Pool, Chapitre 2” — based on cinematic silhouettes combining synthetic, interiors-inspired materials with urethane, a chemical resin that joins fabrics together when it dries.
This time around, she’s pushed the concept further, experimenting with new ways to build garments using the translucent, rubbery material. “The pieces are pretty much drawn with urethane,” said the designer, describing a voluminous pink wavy dress made by stretching a fabric and covering it with urethane to fix it. It also features embroidery by Maison Lesage.
The designer has also collaborated with knitwear specialist Cécile Feilchenfeldt on three pieces “drawn” with the material. “We basically filled urethane shapes with knits,” said Schindler.
The designer, who is “fascinated by the Fifties and Sixties, and interior design,” plans to work to her own schedule and focus on small editions. Urethane

Jarel Zhang Brings Chinese Millennial Fashion to Paris

BRAVE ELEMENTS: Jarel Zhang chose a theme of exploration for his first presentation in Paris, showing a captivating lineup of hulking, sculptured puffer coats in a strange, futuristic setting. For the unknown territory, the Chinese Millennial designer equipped his models with long neon lights and provided a clear plastic tent for them to take refuge in. Two of them did, sitting down in the fake snow while a crowd of onlookers eyed the clothing from a distance.
Jarel grew up in the suburbs of Shanghai and his father was an architect, he relayed with the help of an interpreter. The stiff, shiny coats were made with a mirror-effect leather, a feminine copper cape in one instance; while a long, silver coat felt stern with angular shoulders. Jarel designed the print featured on a long coat covered in ruffles in front, and paired with a long hat, in the shape of a sleeve that jutted out behind and hung past the shoulders. It was blue with strokes of orange, yellow, black and white. Another coat was built upside down, with sleeves dangling down from the bottom. Footwear was either practical or sexy, and included black sneakers, shiny stiletto boots, or a hybrid

British High Street Retailers Named in ‘Dirty Fashion’ Report

DIRTY FASHION: British High Street retailers Next, Asda and Tesco are among the companies that continue to source their viscose from dirty and dangerous factories, according to Changing Markets Foundation, a group that exposes irresponsible corporate practices.
Last June, the foundation issued a report called “Dirty Fashion revisited: Spotlight on a polluting viscose giant,” following an investigation into two factories owned by the Mumbai-based Aditya Birla Group.
The latest statement from Changing Markets, set to be issued late Tuesday, said air and water pollution from the factories is among the causes of ongoing health and environmental issues, and that Next, Asda and Tesco continue to work with them despite the claim.
“Our investigation suggests that Aditya Birla Group is failing to live up to its sustainability claims,” said Natasha Hurley, campaign manager at Changing Markets Foundation. “Brands buying from the company should understand what is really happening on the ground, where local residents’ and workers’ lives are blighted by pollution on a daily basis.”
Located in India and Indonesia, the factories produce 20 percent of the world’s viscose fabric. Viscose is made from plants and is biodegradable, but creating the fabric involves the use of hazardous chemicals, which can be harmful if not monitored

Nicolas Sarkozy, Fashion Crowd Cheer On Carla Bruni at Her L.A. Concert

Los Angeles’ European contingent — led by former French president Nicolas Sarkozy — was out in full force Wednesday night for Carla Bruni’s concert at The Orpheum Theatre downtown in support of her new album, “French Touch.”
“It’s so chilly in Los Angeles today, but you are so warm,” Bruni purred as she sauntered around the stage in all black leather jeans, T-shirt, blazer and ankle boots. (She changed into what looked like a Balmain band jacket after a brief intermission.) The crowd was full of seasoned continental types also donning leather pants and all manner of black clothing, along with recognizable faces such as Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and his swimsuit designer wife Susan Holmes, actress Lucila Solá, Nathalie Marciano, and two other model contemporaries of Bruni’s, Elaine Irwin and Patricia Velásquez.
Sarkozy emerged from the wings and slid into a seat in the orchestra next to Foster as the lights were dimming, but he didn’t remain unnoticed because his wife referenced “my man” several times and sang a song she wrote for him, with the chorus “triste garçon,” or “sad boy.”
Bruni’s fourth album, produced by David Foster, features a range of English language standards, pop and rock songs

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

Nick Knight described Blame as “always totally unique, always a champion of the underdog, always fiercely anti-fascist and anti-establishment, always inspiring, always so immensely talented and always one hundred percent brilliant. Judy, the world will be a much darker place without you, but your life’s work will continue to shine and to show this world that creativity and art are the highest forms of human achievement,” Knight added.
Blame started his career working alongside John Moore from The House of Beauty and Culture and the late photographer Rei Petri.
His work was celebrated by London’s ICA in 2016, with the space presenting his first solo exhibition, a retrospective called Judy Blame: Never Again that featured Blame’s jewelry and mixed media art.

Arab Fashion Council Plots Arab Fashion Week Riyadh, Partners With British Fashion Council

LONDON — The Arab Fashion Council is starting to lay the foundations for the development of a sustainable infrastructure across the Arab world, with a strategic partnership with the British Fashion Council and the debut of the first Arab Fashion Week in Riyadh.
The nonprofit organization, which represents 22 countries across the Arab world and has recently set up a regional office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is aiming to use the event as a platform to support local talent, as well as international names looking to enter the Arab market.
“The history and trajectory of the BFC goes hand in hand with what we are trying to achieve: nurturing young talent and adopting an international vision,” said Princess Noura Bint Faisal Al Saud, the organization’s honorary president.
In turn, the AFC will work toward providing opportunities for London-based designers to tap into the Arab market.
Jacob Abrian, the founder and chief executive officer of the AFC, pointed to the fact that their efforts are aligned with the government’s broader vision to diversify the economy of Saudi Arabia and create opportunities for its increasingly young generation — 70 percent of the population being under 30. “Most Arab countries are looking to diversify; Abu Dhabi, for example, announced that

Central Saint Martins’ MA Students Present Graduate Collections at London Fashion Week

Student graduate shows can be hit or miss but the 19 MA students from Central Saint Martins presented an exciting mix that ran the sartorial gamut from extreme silhouettes and innovative textiles to sleek tailoring in more traditional fabrications.
Among the highlights: Liam Johnson, whose sculptural silhouettes opened the show; Elise Perrotta’s all cream collection featuring wardrobe staples in textural knits, and women’s wear designer Edwin Mohney, who closed the show with a provocative collection that included conceptual pieces made using inflatables wrapped in packing tape.
As in past seasons, craftsmanship in the men’s wear stood out. Particularly noteworthy was Olaf Tavares Vieira, whose draped men’s wear collection was awarded the L’Oreal Professional Creative Award. Inspired by utilitarianism and the stomach as the center of the body, his lineup included fluid ankle-grazing coats, along with sweaters with cutouts in the back and slouchy trousers enveloping the torso that had a monkish appeal.
“I like clothes that are close on the neck and belly and on the ankle,” Vieira explained. “It gives me a kind of strength, even if the clothes are soft.”
He shared the prize with women’s wear designer Rebecca Jeffs, whose tactile collection was a clever play on famous sayings such as

Adidas Panel Talks Basketball Culture in Fashion

Refinement of just what defines streetwear is now emerging with the segment’s continued rise, and a panel of designers drawing inspiration from the court sought to tackle basketball’s influence on fashion as much of Los Angeles gears up for Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game.
Adidas, while plenty of its crew prepped for its 747 Warehouse event, on Thursday evening took over sneaker store Nice Kicks and an adjacent parking lot in downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of its Boost You Wear shoe collaboration with local label Bristol Studio.
A panel featuring Bristol cofounder and creative director Luke Tadashi, Eric Emanuel of his own namesake label and Adidas’ Brooklyn Creator Farm vice president and creative director Denis Dekovic led a thoughtful conversation on basketball’s reemerging influence on fashion.
“I think basketball for a little while got a little bit cold and there was no excitement,” Tadashi said. “We’re at a time right now where it’s almost a renaissance, where players are able to express themselves, especially walking through the tunnel [before a game] so they can show you how they look off the court. It’s exciting to see.”
Emanuel recalled watching Allen Iverson, noting the athlete as a style icon.

Fashion Illustrator Jeanette Getrost Plans Phone Cases, Packaging, Talk at Camp David

BETWEEN THE LINES: In New York for a Q&A at Spring Place and a happy hour at Camp David in Brooklyn on Thursday, Los Angeles-based fashion illustrator Jeanette Getrost discussed how the medium is coming back to life.
About 20 will be at the NYFW event at Spring and the crowd will be considerably livelier at Camp David, the co-working space for creatives started by Milk Studios’ Mazdack Rassi and Erez Shternlich. Getrost chalked up the renewed interest in fashion illustration to social media giving artists a platform to get their work out. In addition, “People get a little tired of new media and have this yearning for the past and they want things to be handmade. You can see the same Instagram posts on a daily basis but with artists they are creating something new that you’ve never seen before.”
A few years ago she worked for “Project Runway” one season, sketching the winning looks from each episode for a social media campaign. Next week she will be live sketching at a Ferragamo event in Los Angeles. Getrost, whose work can be found on Absolut Art, also has a line of phone cases coming out with Fifth & Ninth, and she recently

British Fashion Council Forges Closer Ties With China

LONDON — The British Fashion Council has been strengthening its ties with Hong Kong and China, including a new partnership with VIP.com, one of China’s top e-commerce platforms, and one with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.
As part of the tie-in, VIP.com will become an official London Fashion Week sponsor and work with London-based brands throughout the year to help them enter the Chinese market.
The company also plans to host fashion shows that will be live-streamed in China and a variety of exhibitions, which will enable its customers to engage with these new labels.
Jenny Jioe, managing director of fashion at VIP.com, said that this partnership makes sense for the company given Chinese consumers’ increasing appetite for new brands.
“The fashion market in China is extraordinarily sophisticated and fast-paced, and hungry for new design talent,” said Jioe. “Our consumer is aware of London’s creative pedigree, and ready for both news and product. I know from firsthand experience that the brands in London, with all their energy and unbridled creativity, are precisely what we are looking for.”
Caroline Rush, chief executive at the BFC, added that the partnership will help emerging labels gain visibility in the market, despite their lack of advertising power.

The Three Designers to Watch at New York Fashion Week: Men’s

Name: Willy Chavarria
Background: Chavarria, a Mexican-American, grew up in Huron, Calif., a small town near Fresno, and held design stints at Ralph Lauren and American Eagle Outfitters before starting Palmer Trading Co., his Made in the U.S. men’s wear line that leaned heavily toward workwear and was snapped up by Japanese retailers. Now he’s exclusively focused on his namesake assortment of men’s wear.
Inspiration this season: “Faith in humanity during dark times.”
Mentor or idol: “I love the work of film director Romain Gavras. I find a connection with it in my work.”
Goal: “I’d like to help us see ourselves in a new light.”
What’s your favorite secret spot in New York?: The lobby bar at Jolly Madison Towers Hotel on 38th and Madison Avenue.
 
Name: Emily Adams Bode
Background: Bode was born and raised in Atlanta, and spent her summers in New England, where she frequented antique shops and shows with her mother. Through that she was introduced to age-old techniques and fabrications. “I have always been drawn to hand-work, craft and labors of love,” the designer said. “The stories told through craft and the sense of the hand, the individual-maker, drew me to them.” Bode eventually moved to New York, where she graduated from Parsons

Stella McCartney, Graydon Carter Speakers at Copenhagen Fashion Summit

SUSTAINABLE STAR POWER: Stella McCartney and Graydon Carter are scheduled to speak at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, which takes place May 15 to 16.
Eva Kruse, chief executive officer of Global Fashion Agenda which organizes the event, noted that McCartney had topped the speaker wish list since the summit was first organized in 2009.
“She is the impersonation of our vision for a sustainable fashion industry and the match simply couldn’t be better,” said Kruse.
“Another person whom I’ve always admired deeply is Graydon Carter — one of the most legendary magazine editors of all time,” added Kruse, of the former Vanity Fair editor in chief who retired last year.
The summit, which takes place in the Jean Nouvel-designed Copenhagen Concert Hall, will extend over two days for the first time this year.
Summit organizers last week said that the event will be hosted by model and entrepreneur Amber Valletta and Tim Blanks.

Z Supply Enters Retail Fray With Fashion Island Store

Z Supply LLC has opened its first store with plans of growing its retail footprint over time.
The 1,362-square-foot temporary store at Fashion Island in Newport Beach carries the company’s namesake basics brand and is also set to be used to test categories from the line.
The assortment includes the women’s collection in addition to some pieces from the Z Supply men’s line. The company will also sell items from its Zoo Supply line for pets, which launched last year.
The Fashion Island pop-up is scheduled to be open for a period of three to six months.
Z Supply chief operating officer Heidi Muther called the timing right to look at retail, as the company follows the game plans of a number of born-online brands or businesses with traditional wholesale models exploring direct-to-consumer through physical retail in a bid to learn more about their respective consumer bases.
Z Supply, the brand, has seen steady growth since its 2013 launch and is in more than 2,000 stores in the U.S. It’s part of a portfolio of brands created by Z Supply LLC that includes Black Swan, White Crow, Others Follow, Rag Poets, Icons of Culture and Pirate Surf.

Telfar Clemens Is Teaching the Fashion Industry How to Be Inclusive

Before unisex clothing was a thing, Telfar Clemens did it. He’s been designing nongendered clothes since 2002. Before see-now-buy-now was a thing, Telfar Clemens did it. In 2011, he held mobile pop-up shows throughout New York Fashion Week and let guests purchase pieces from the spring 2012 collection on the spot. Before normcore was a thing, Telfar Clemens did it. He created Extremely Normal before K-Hole coined normcore. And before casting models of various hues was a thing, Telfar Clemens did it. See any of his early look books.
The fashion industry is notorious for latching onto “a thing” before abandoning it for another of-the-moment concept. But for 32-year-old Clemens, all those notions remain “the thing.”
The Liberian-American designer has spent the past decade showing collections that embody many ideas currently whirling through the zeitgeist: inclusivity, accessibility, equality, diversity and fluidity. He’s creating clothes and a business based on removing walls instead of building them: The tagline for his collection is, “It’s not for you, it’s for everybody.”
There’s been media presence at his shows since 2006, but it wasn’t until about two years ago when mainstream fashion publications found the language needed to write about his line, which some still don’t entirely

‘Black Panther: Welcome to Wakanda’ Fashion Event Features 10 Designers

“Black Panther: Welcome to Wakanda,” a nod to the fashion inspired by the new superhero movie, will be presented by Marvel Studios on Feb. 12 as part of New York Fashion Week.
The red carpet event takes place at Industria at 775 Washington Street from 8 to 10 p.m., and several stars from the movie are expected to attend.
Designers including Chromat, Cushnie et Ochs, Fear of God, Ikiré Jones, Laquan Smith, Sophie Theallet and Tome worked with Marvel Studios to create one-of-a-kind pieces interpreting different characters and themes from the movie. The designers were selected for their dedication to empowerment and individualism through fashion.
The seven bespoke pieces will be unveiled the night of the event and installed in a Wakanda-inspired venue that guests can explore. Following the event, the looks will be auctioned off via Charitybuzz.com in support of Save the Children.
Jones called the experience “awesome and great.”
“I was honored, and I saw the film with my partner. It’s an attempt to help uplift the voices of people who have been marginalized historically and in the present day, both in the U.S. and globally, and Ikiré Jones specifically does that by using fashion as a vehicle to address these issues.

Ones to Watch: Paris Men’s Fashion Week

PARIS — From the debut collection of design-led sustainable men’s brand, Phipps, to Nïuku’s modern-day tribute to men’s tailoring of yore, here are some of the new talents to look out for at Paris Men’s Fashion Week, which kicks into high gear today.
Phipps

“It’s about acknowledging that we’re all people, we’re in this together,” said Spencer Phipps, founder of Phipps, a new men’s wear line mixing sustainability and style that is due to launch on Jan. 20 during Paris Men’s Week. (The venue is still to be confirmed.)
The Paris-based designer, who is from San Francisco, cut his teeth in the men’s studio of Marc Jacobs in New York before working for Dries Van Noten in Antwerp for three years. After leaving Van Noten, he spent eight months researching manufacturers and materials. “I did my graduate collection in sustainability in 2008 at Parsons and it was like a joke. I ended up finding one manufacturer in New England that was basically some hippy commune that made hemp and linen and one cotton flannel,” he said.
So Phipps opted to work with manufacturers in Portugal, “a country that is basically certified [for sustainability].”

London Fashion Week Men’s Fall 2018: Ones to Watch

John Alexander Skelton
Born and raised in York, John Alexander Skelton received his master’s in fashion men’s wear at Central Saint Martins and took on internships at E. Tautz and Patrik Ervell before launching his label last year. Selected by Giles Deacon, Skelton is a recipient of the Sarabande scholarship, an initiative from The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation that aids young designers. He is working out of a studio at Sarabande in east London.
Sustainability is a key theme for Skelton, who incorporates repurposed materials into his ranges and takes a DIY approach to his work. He has a loom in his studio and many of his fabrics are handwoven, as is much of his knitwear. “Everything I dye is also done by hand using natural dye. The handcrafted element is my signature, in a way,” said the designer.
For fall 2018, Skelton has been working with mills in Ireland, mixing British wool and Irish linen.
“I have been doing a lot of hand weaving, as well, on the loom. I have also done a few natural dyes this time, one using an ancient European dye, the European version of indigo, called woad,” he said.

London College of Fashion Spotlights MA Men’s Wear Collections

FRESH TALENT: London College of Fashion’s graduating MA men’s wear students showcased their collections on Friday with a runway show ahead of London Fashion Week Men’s.
Ten students from the fashion design technology men’s wear course presented their ranges at St John’s Smith Square in Westminster, in the show styled by Adele Cany. The strongest lineups came from Hanni Yang, Ying Yi Lu, Hengmin Lu, Sohyeon Park and Xu Bo.
Yang, who has worked with Teatum Jones and Céline, explored pattern-cutting and worked scarves onto the garments. She sent out a range of tailored-yet-relaxed looks and draped burgundy and cream silk scarves over a white men’s wear shirt and burgundy trousers.
Ying Yi Lu looked to young boys of the Victorian era and focused on tailoring, as in a cropped blue pinstripe suit. Lu topped off the looks with sailor style hats done in collaboration with Atelier Millinery.
Hengmin Lu — who has worked with Ports 1961 — was inspired by the architecture of the Chairman Mao era. Lu explored functionality and pattern cutting as seen on a long brown coat, worn over a white shirt with a mandarin collar and white knee-length shorts. The student teamed with JKJY Handcraft Fashion Ltd. Shanghai on

London Fashion Week Men’s Fall 2018: Inspirations

From skiing to winning the lottery, London men’s wear designers looked to a wide range of subjects for inspiration for their fall collections. Here, some of the topics that sparked their creativity ahead of the shows, which begin on Saturday.
“This season we celebrate the 70th  anniversary of the Trialmaster jacket, which gave me an opportunity to revisit our British roots and present our Made in U.K. collection. Looking through our Trialmaster history led me to explore English youth subcultures and how our jackets have been adopted and customized since the Fifties. The iconic silhouettes from this era including the field, parka and biker jackets have been updated this season with added functionality and modern fabrications. The hero piece of the collection is the anniversary Trialmaster, which is entirely manufactured in the U.K., in a new tumbled coated cotton and reflective tape with badges, celebrating our heritage.” — Delphine Ninous, creative director, Belstaff
“A deep dive into the big blue. The collection stands as a creative call to arms and focuses on responsible design and sourcing to protect both planet and wearer.” — Christopher Raeburn
“It’s about escaping life, going to Noel’s house party and the adventures of kids’ coloring books.” — Liam Hodges

Andrea Crews to Stage Fashion Show Process As Performance

PERFORMANCE: Andrea Crews founder Maroussia Rebecq is taking the concept of backstage access to new heights. The Paris-based designer, who launched her label in 2002 as an art project geared around upcycling vintage garments, plans to stage the preparations for her fall 2018 co-ed show as a performance, titled “How to Make a Great Fashion Show.”
From today through Jan. 17, Rebecq, along with the members of her collective, will hold castings and fittings, shoot the brand’s look book and hold the final hair and makeup tests in the Le Cœur gallery in Paris’ Marais district. The actual show will be held on Jan. 20 during Paris Men’s Collections, with the location yet to be confirmed.
“This period, from now through to the show, is a very intense period where we’re building the story of our collection. This year we wanted to make an event out of it,” said Rebecq. “It will also allow for some distance from what I do. Preparing for a show can be both a highly stressful and beautiful experience, and for me gathering everyone together in a performance will make it more of a joyful, playful event.”

The Once-Polarizing Scrunchie Makes Its Way Back to Fashion

What comes around goes around, even for the objects that adorn the tops of our heads. With that, fashion followers have extended a warm “welcome back” to one of the Eighties’ most polarizing accessories: The Scrunchie.
For the last decade, scrunchies have led a dual life: Decried as a faux pas by the fashion mainstream while also playing the role of hipster tiara for American Apparel employees and Silver Lake, Los Angeles’ larger population.

A scrunchie refashioned from a vintage Hermès scarf, designed by Comfort Objects.

Recently, however, scrunchies have begun attracting wider appreciation — perhaps a runoff effect of the Eighties’ renaissance trend. By some indications, scrunchies are on the cusp of a full revival — popping up at each echelon of the pricing spectrum.
Urban Outfitters has display racks dedicated to the scrunchie — offered in materials spanning from velvet to satin. The hair ties are a cute marketing gimmick for the Instagram-famous label Maison Cléo; the brand — based in Lille, France and known for its diaphanous, trendy blouses — sends shoppers a free scrunchie with each order.
To accompany its resort 2018 collection, Balenciaga cinched models’ hair with scrunchies — or chouchou, as they are known in French — theirs made of
