Exclusive: Elsa Hosk to Unveil Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’s Swarovski Look

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is set to be an even shinier and more extravagant spectacle than ever before. Not only is the brand jet-setting to Shanghai for the November show, it’s also celebrating the 15-year “Crystal Anniversary” of its partnership with Swarovski, the sole provider of crystal embellishments for the show. One million Swarovski crystals will take the runway, with Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk chosen to strut the special anniversary showpiece.
“This year’s Swarovski outfit is probably our most spectacular. The outfit has an incredible wing that is completely covered in brilliant multicolored stones,” said Monica Mitro, executive vice president, brand communications and events at Victoria’s Secret. “It is one of the heaviest wings we have ever made.” With more than 275,000 crystals, 200 yards of woven ribbon and pavé crystals, hand-beaded jewelry and a crystallized wing harness, the wings weigh in at 14 pounds. “The Swarovski anniversary look will be a major standout. It is an explosion of color,” Mitro continued of Parisian couturier Serkan Cura’s work. And stunning it is, with an astonishing 29 crystal effects and colors, ranging from Citrine Shimmer and Crystal Luminous Green to Fireopals, Topaz and Emeralds. The look includes a fiery-red

Trend Union’s Li Edelkoort: Goddesses Are Emerging Female Archetypes in Fashion

DRAPED CRUSADERS: As the social message of women’s empowerment continues to gain ground, goddess-like strength and traits are turning up in fashion.
Goddesses of all different heritages and persuasions were the focus of Li Edelkoort’s spring 2019 presentation for Trend Union at The New School in New York. The way she sees it, they are at the root of the emerging female fashion archetype for the industry with individuals determining their own goddess based on individual tastes. Predicting a revolution sparked partially from draping, folding and cuts, Edelkort expects normcore and streetwear basics to dissolve. That shift calls for “designers, not influencers,” she said.
With a myriad of colorful images that drew from art history, fashion, portraiture and nature, the trend forecaster offered a crash course in goddesses. Students and industry types learned of Aphrodite, Demeter, Hestia, Gaia, Flora & Fauna, Nike and others. Edelkoort also pointed to the increasing importance of the sack dress, regal colors and majestic fabrics. She also spoke of “this child woman” who is very dominant in society, accumulating jobs as if she is accumulating pairs of shoes. “She lives her life like a ribbon, like a bracelet — there is not a clear direction.

Dion Lee Named the 2017 Australian Fashion Laureate

SYDNEY – Dion Lee has been named the Australian Fashion Laureate for 2017.
The New York-based Australian was presented with the award at a gala dinner for 300 at Sydney’s Barangaroo Cutaway venue on Thursday evening.
At 32, Lee is the youngest-ever recipient of the Laureate, which is now in its 10th year and recognizes outstanding industry achievement.
Previous recipients include designers Akira Isogawa, Toni Maticevksi and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia founder Simon Lock.
The Laureate is the latest in a string of accolades for Lee, who launched his business in 2008, after graduating from Sydney’s Fashion Design Studio and quickly garnering a following for his deconstructed tailoring and signature dresses with complex surface treatments.
The 2013 sale of a strategic stake in the business to the Sydney-based Cue Clothing Co enabled the designer’s rapid retail expansion in Australia, where he operates eight standalone stores, in addition to e-commerce and concessions within the David Jones department store chain.
“It [the Laureate] is a bit of a landmark moment for me – knowing that it is voted by your peers,” said Lee, who is now a New York Fashion Week runway regular and boasts over 70 global wholesale stockists.

Collections: Fashion Met Emotion at the Most Theatrical Antonio Marras Show

“It was the longest week of my life,” Antonio Marras says, referring to the days before his runway show in September during Milan Fashion Week — a complex production that yielded a powerful emotional charge. As Marras’ wife Patrizia Sardo ironically put it, welcoming WWD at the show: “We always like simple things!”
The complexity stemmed from the fact that the event took place inside Milan’s Teatro Lirico, which is being gutted and restored after being closed for 25 years.
“As soon as I got into the theater, it was love at the first sight. It left me breathless,” says Marras, who was originally asked by the [artistic and cultural] Gianfranco Dioguardi Fondazione to present a project to decorate the façade. Shortly after, the designer was asked if it would be possible for him to hold the show at the theater. “I said ‘Everything is possible.’ So we started.”

The designer’s show actually inaugurated Gianfranco Dioguardi Fondazione’s “Cantiere-Evento [Construction-Event]” project aimed at bringing life to locations that are being restored in order to involve the public in the process.
“Three days before the show, we were still forced to wear helmets to stay inside the theater and we

EXCLUSIVE: N.E.R.D Comeback Rumors Fueled With New Fashion Collaboration

Rumblings of N.E.R.D’s impending album release will intensify with news that the experimental rock band — which includes Pharrell Williams, Shae Haley and Chad Hugo — is to release a new fashion collaboration.
The trio — largely dormant for the last decade — has collaborated with Illesteva on limited-edition sunglasses. They have designed oversize frames in four colorways. Each pair of glasses is embedded with a USB drive that houses exclusive short films directed by Christian Padron.
The glasses will launch at ComplexCon on Nov. 4, where the trio is scheduled to give their first live performance in three years.

N.E.R.D, founded in 1999, last released an album in 2010. Williams has since gone on to achieve a successful mainstream solo career — releasing the inescapable schoolyard song, “Happy,” in 2013 as part of the film soundtrack for “Despicable Me 2.” He has also concentrated on fashion, teaming with Chanel and G-Star Raw on assorted projects.
N.E.R.D’s Illesteva collaboration and ComplexCon performance no doubt add to evidence that the group is readying a musical return. Williams has repeatedly confirmed that the group is preparing a new album, though he’s declined to reveal a release date.

Marina Testino Unveils Point Off View Fashion Brand

Marina Testino is ready for her fashion debut. The recent Parsons School of Design graduate and niece of famed photographer Mario today unveils Point Off View, her fashion brand.
After graduating in May and signing with The Society Management’s creative roster, Testino went to Peru to work on the collection. She says she consulted with some of her teachers from school, as well as her aunt, who lives in Peru and studied fashion. “Really, it was kind of a secret project,” Testino says. “I saw my uncle [Mario] over the summer and I showed him the collection, but once it was done, not a lot of people knew that I was doing it.”
Through Point Off View, Testino hopes to release about two capsules a year, featuring a different artist collaboration with each. The first, designed solely by Testino, is called Edition Zero.
The Edition Zero offerings include a “Risky Business”-inspired button-down for $ 120, a denim jacket for $ 210 and an army jacket for $ 180. Each piece is emblazoned with whimsical phrases like “go skinny dipping” or “buy me a drink” or “misbehaving.” Testino says she designed the line for “young women, ages 16 to 30 years, that are outgoing and fun and

Peclers Paris to Host Future of Fashion Conference

PARIS — Fashion has lost its meaning. That’s the prognosis of Eric Duchamp, global chief executive officer of leading forecasting agency Peclers Paris, who on Thursday will host a conference geared at identifying — during stagnant times for the industry, and a banalization of offer — the crucial “strategic levers” brands need to activate to boost performance in the years to come.
Titled “La mode doit gagner la bataille du sens,” or in English, “Fashion Must Make Sense Again,” the Future of Fashion conference will take place at Paris restaurant Noto.
The Peclers Paris team will present future insights and some of the key macro trends that they believe will impact brands and consumers in the next five years, based on findings of a market study around brand perception conducted by Kantar TNS, as well as a range of “strategic levers” identified by the Peclers Paris team that brands need to activate to boost performance in the years to come.
Conducted online between May and June of this year, the study involved a panel of 2010 consumers aged from 16 to 60, with a 50-50 breakdown of men and women, and covered their perception of 25 brands for the women and 22 brands

Australian Fashion Chamber and Council of Textile & Fashion to Merge

SYDNEY — Australia’s two key fashion industry bodies are joining forces.
The three-year-old, designer-focused Australian Fashion Chamber is to merge with the 65-year-old Council of Textile & Fashion, the peak body for Australia’s clothing, textile and footwear industries, it was revealed Wednesday in Sydney.
A name change for the proposed merged group is due to be discussed at the respective entities’ annual general meetings at the end of the year, said David Giles-Kaye, executive director of the Council of Textile & Fashion, with the first meeting of the new body slated for early 2018.
The Australian Fashion Council could be one of the possibilities for the new name, Giles-Kaye said.
The Australian Fashion Council name is owned by the CTF, with one of the AFC’s current board members, Karen Webster, a former chair. The existence of so many fashion organizations has led to some confusion in the Australian media.
The new industry body will benefit from having established offices in the country’s two largest cities and a combined membership that spans the entire Australian fashion and textile industry value chain.
The Sydney-based AFC boasts 90 designer members, while the Melbourne-based CTF has “several hundred” members, according to Giles-Kaye, ranging from textile manufacturers to fashion tech startups through

Michael B. Talks Fashion at Piaget Beverly Hills

Watch and jewelry lovers turned out Thursday night at Piaget’s West Coast flagship on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills for a cocktail party and conversation with its U.S. brand ambassador Michael B.

In a question-and-answer session with Degen Pener, Jordan discussed his history with Piaget, his evolving style and favorite red-carpet looks. With help from his longtime stylist Jeff Kim, he highlighted his favorite fashion looks from a range of designers including Dior Homme, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Vivienne Westwood Man and Public School.
“Before I worked with Jeff, I didn’t really know how to dress myself. He’s helped me take a lot of risks,” said Jordan of his colorful style and embrace of pattern. His favorite Piaget timepieces include the Altiplano 60th Anniversary Limited Edition timepiece with a green patinated dial worn for the Met Gala and the diamond Altiplano 38mm 900P worn for the Golden Globe awards.

Brussels’ Manneken-Pis Dresses Up for Fashion

FUN IN BRUSSELS: Despite its reputation for producing fashion talent, Belgium is lacking its own fashion week. The country has decided to piggyback off Paris Fashion Week to celebrate creativity in its own irreverent way — by dressing one of Brussels’ most famous landmarks, the Manneken-Pis, in an array of designer outfits.
As part of the “Belgium, uniquely phenomenal” promotional campaign that debuted earlier this year, Belgian authorities are revealing a series of outfits on the famous bronze statue of a little boy urinating. They are to appear on its social media sites throughout the day on Monday.
They include a leather worker’s outfit from Delvaux, a Belgian Pride ensemble by Jean-Paul Gaultier, a pink ribbon creation by Natan’s Edouard Vermeulen intended to raise breast cancer awareness and designs by Marina Yee and Agatha Ruiz de la Prada.
The tradition of dressing up the Manneken-Pis apparently dates back to the 17th century, and he has an incredible 970 outfits. Earlier this year, a museum displaying them opened close by the famous statue.
The statue, designed by Hieronimus Duquesnoy the Elder, is seen as a symbol of the sense of humor and independence of the people of Brussels.

Minnie Mouse to Attend Her First New York Fashion Week

MINNIE TAKES MANHATTAN: It’s about time: Minnie Mouse will be touching down in Manhattan next week to attend her first New York Fashion Week.

At press time, she had no plans to attend a fashion show, but obviously that could change once publicists get wind of her visit.

New York Fashion Tech Lab Inks Accenture Deal for 2018 Partnership

New York Fashion Tech Lab has signed on Accenture as a partner for the 2018 program.
Springboard Enterprises founded NYFT Lab in 2013 with the support of retailers and fashion brands to help grow women-led emerging tech companies at the intersection of fashion, retail and technology. The company this year completed its fourth annual accelerator program. There’s some funding for the program from Springboard and the Partnership Fund for New York City, but most of the funding is from within the industry. That allows industry sponsors to learn about new tech ideas and work as mentors to further develop the ideas that they are most interested in.
Senior managing director at Accenture Jill Standish, who leads the company’s Retail Industry practice globally, said that with retailers and brands being disrupted by online “pure plays,” she sees Accenture’s role as partner with NYFT Lab to help the 2018 class participants more quickly accelerate their innovations to “better serve and connect consumers to the fashion industry.”
For the 2017 class, founding members J. Crew and Macy’s continued to participate in the program. Returning for the second year as tech partner was Microsoft. Also returning were second and third-year partners Bloomingdale’s and Kohl’s. New this year was

What to Watch: Are Separate Men’s Fashion Shows a Dying Breed?

The men’s fashion calendar is in a state of flux.
The rise of the co-ed show, where major designers are opting to show their men’s wear during the traditional February and September women’s dates, is seriously impinging on the men’s market.
Probably the hardest hit this past season was Milan Men’s Fashion Week, following the decisions by Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Missoni and Etro to go co-ed.
London was also impacted. The big names — including Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford and Moschino — all decided to show in different cities or formats, while a number of smaller calendar stalwarts were absent, too, including Sibling, which went into voluntary liquidation earlier this year; Agi & Sam, which is restrategizing, and Casely-Hayford, which is switching its focus to retail.
One bright spot on the European circuit was Pitti Uomo, the international trade show in Florence. The most recent edition in June found a calendar chock-full of shows and presentations that included J.W. Anderson and Off-White events along with special guests such as Hugo Boss, Christian Louboutin, Federico Curradi and Alanui.
Paris seemed to hold its own the best, with a bevy of new names added to the spring calendar to join the big guns: Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten,

Fashion Firms Partake in Solar Eclipse Viewings Around the Country

LET THE SUNSHINE IN: While many companies held informal gatherings on their office rooftops to view the solar eclipse Monday, others initiated more formal plans for the event. Warby Parker bussed its Nashville headquarters’ employees to celebrate the eclipse at its Nashville store, Warby Parker Edgehill. The party included a performance by Futurebirds, then during the city’s one minute and 57 seconds of eclipse-induced darkness, the Nashville-based ALIAS Chamber Ensemble played a composition that they crafted especially for the occasion. Martin’s, a local barbecue joint, fired up lunch on-site for attendees.
Lividini & Co., a fashion public relations and brand strategy company at 264 West 40th Street in New York, entertained some 30 to 40 people on their rooftop Monday afternoon, including staff from other companies in the building, such as Robert Graham, as well as media. Bottled water and stars and moon cookies were served, along with sun-protection glasses.
Nike held a viewing party on it Beaverton, Ore, campus, while Nautilus threw a viewing party for hundreds in their corporate office with a glasses-decorating station, brunch and drink stations for specialty coffees and smoothies.

What to Watch: Blurring Fashion, Art and Commerce at Made Los Angeles

The fusion of fashion, art and commerce continues to be a winning formula. Made Los Angeles has seized on that.
The two-day event went for a second go in Los Angeles this past June with a decidedly strong focus on the intersection of hip-hop streetwear collaborations with collections flanked by performances from Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Yung Jake and A$ AP Ferg in conjunction with labels Rochambeau, 424, Joyrich and Pleasures.
The result was a sold out show two years in a row and a spokesperson for IMG, the event’s parent, confirmed Made LA will be back in 2018.
“We wanted to do something different….Technology, music, clothes and putting it all together in one, cohesive project is pretty dope,” Pleasures’ Alex Taylor said during a panel at Made LA this year. “I think people are taking notice of that.”
Made started off in New York as a way to offer free runway space and was acquired in 2015 by WME-IMG with a bid to expand the event’s reach beyond the fashion show.
The rise of L.A. food and fashion with an existing base of music seemed like the right formula for the Los Angeles iteration, according to IMG senior vice president and managing director Catherine Bennett.

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. That night Andy Hilfiger, who certainly has attended his share of runway shows over the years, will be hosting one of his own as creative director of Artistix by Greg Polisseni.
With three directing projects “Black-ish,” Dylan McDermott’s new show “L.A. to Vegas” and Kaitlin Olson’s Fox show “The Mick,” Longoria will have no trouble calling the shots at the first show for her affordable Eva Longoria Collection on Sept.r 13.

YouTube’s ClothesEncounters Jenn Im to Launch Fashion Label

IM’S ADDED INFLUENCE: Through her popular lifestyle channel ClothesEncounters, YouTuber Jenn Im already has a captive audience in advance of this month’s launch of her fashion label Eggie.
Unveiling Aug. 22, the direct-to-consumer collection will have hints of her own favorite styles and statement pieces, including gender-neutral ones. The $ 25 to $ 79 price range is no doubt meant to make the collection within reach of her admirers — 1.5 million on Instagram alone. Shoppers will find cropped tops, bodysuits, hoodies, bomber jackets, tracksuits, jumpsuits and blazers. Those familiar with her beauty and fashion tutorials will recognize the easy style.
Earlier this year, Im was one influencer who helped digitally extend the “Donate Stuff. Create Jobs.” campaign that was organized by Goodwill and the Ad Council. The vlogger has been pretty public about her own thrifting, a practice she started doing at the age of 15. (As recently as Sunday she posted a video of her “man” thrifting her outfits.)
The Korean American Im calls Los Angeles home but she recently touched down in the Hamptons for Revolve. Introducing her own apparel label is ambitious for Im, who cofounded ClothesEncounter with Sarah Chu in 2010. In that time, her social footprint has exceeded 4.1 million

Millennial Fashion Trends and Purges at Resale

Data from online thrift store ThredUp shows what brands and items are hot and trending this summer, as well as what consumers are purging from their closets.
As for trends, hello Millennial pink — still the hot color for summer, but that means goodbye to coral. According to the resale site, there’s been a 99 percent increase in items purchased in the new shade of pink, while the site reported a 104 percent increase in purged coral-shaded bags and apparel items.
Metallics on the print side are in, with a 99 percent increase in purchased items, while floral prints saw a 104 percent increase in items purged from closets and sent to ThredUp.
ThredUp consumers — many of whom are Millennials — are searching for wide-legged jeans, and there was a 10 percent increase in items that featured the wide-legged style in a medium wash. Excised from closets — at a 103 percent increase — were cropped jeans in dark washes. Still hot among consumers is distressed denim, which was purchased 85 percent more than the average on the resale site. Losing some of its cool factor are apparel items — including jeans — with frayed edges, which are being purged 2.7 percent

The Met’s Costume Institute Said Eyeing Fashion and Religion for Next Year’s Exhibition

KEEPING THE FAITH: In these politically charged times, it appears that the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute isn’t afraid to take on its own controversial topics.
Fashion and religion will be the theme of next year’s major exhibition, according to multiple sources, including a few who said they have been privy to preliminary discussions. A Met spokeswoman declined to comment Friday.
With the May opening still many months away, the planning is still in the very early stages. Sources describe the project as serious and ambitious, and it is understood the idea was hatched long before the current “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: The Art of the In-Between” show, slated to close Sept. 4. A host of European designers have referenced religion in their collections, including the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano and Riccardo Tisci. The likeness of the Madonna has been appropriated by Dolce & Gabbana, and the iconography of Jesus has been featured in Jeremy Scott’s collection. Prabal Gurung once brought Buddhist monks to his runway.
In recent years, the Costume Institute exhibitions have been major blockbusters for The Met. Last year’s “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” attracted 752,995 visitors, making it the museum’s seventh

Fashion Research Italy to Open Headquarters in October

Alberto Masotti, the former owner and president of the La Perla innerwear brand, has embarked on a new project. His Fashion Research Italy, a nonprofit organization founded in 2015, will open its headquarters in Bologna on Oct. 21 and will also debut post-graduate courses.
Located at 12 Via del Fonditore, on the outskirts of the Italian city, Fashion Research Italy has renovated a 75,600-square-foot space, which once housed a La Perla manufacturing plant, for a total investment of 15 million euros, creating an educational and exhibition hub dedicated to Made in Italy.
“Manufacture and craftsmanship should embrace new opportunities of development through innovation, research, education, heritage and globalization: fashion needs to evolve into fashion 4.0,” said Masotti, who last June unveiled the “Statue of a Woman” as the symbol of the foundation. The sculpture, which is 32 feet high, is dedicated to Olga Cantelli, Masotti’s late wife and former La Perla designer, and features 21,120 LED lights, its shape recalling both the female body and a gown, thus linking heritage and innovation in fashion.

Aussie Fashion Rental Site GlamCorner Raises $3.3 Million

HONG KONG — Fashion rental website GlamCorner has raised $ 3.3 million, aimed at cementing its status as the market leader in the Australian apparel-sharing economy. 
The investment of 4.2 million Australian dollars was led by AirTree Ventures, bringing the total amount of capital invested in the business to date to 5.5 million Australian dollars.
The company was founded by husband-and-wife duo Dean and Audrey Jones in 2012. The site stocks more than 3,000 designer dresses from more than 150 labels, averaging about 90 Australian dollars to 130 Australian dollars, and is equipped to offer next-day delivery across the country and three-hour delivery in Sydney.

Over the last year, the business has grown over 500 percent, transacting the retail equivalent of over 20 million Australian dollars, the company said.
“We are renting to 16-year-olds for their Year 10 formal to someone over 60 going to their daughter’s wedding. The problem [of finding an outfit] is quite universal,” Dean Jones said.

Next month, Rachel Zoe will dip her toes into the warming waters of the seasonal East Coast retail scene with her first-ever East Hampton “pop-in shop” at What Goes Around Comes Around. The shop will feature a selection of Rachel Zoe Collection’s pre-fall and fall pieces styled with her picks from WGACA’s vintage selection.
Zoe will launch the shop — open from August 5 to 13 — with a VIP shopping night on August 4. “I wasn’t ready to open up my own pop-up shop for the whole summer, but I have known the guys at What Goes Around Comes Around for 20 years, so we thought, ‘Why not do a pop-in shop for part of the season?’ It’s a great way to have a presence in a place that’s like my second home. In August you’re still wearing sundresses but you’re also in a fall state of mind, so why not mix in some chunky knits, statement outerwear and boots? I love mixing my own new pieces with vintage, and my customer dresses that way too,” she said.

Raf Reigned at New York Fashion Week: Men’s

Raf saved the week.
Designer Raf Simons’ “Blade Runner”-inspired spring show in an alley in Chinatown Tuesday night was undoubtedly the highlight of an otherwise lackluster New York Fashion Week: Men’s, which also was boosted by the inclusion of Hugo Boss for the second time. But because in large part to the ongoing the lack of many other high-profile designers, the latest edition was perhaps the weakest of the last five.
The list of missing names — Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Thom Browne, Joseph Abboud, John Varvatos, Tim Coppens and John Elliott — was seemingly longer than those who opted to participate.
The scarcity of marquee names also impacted the number of overseas buyers and editors who attended — even though the editors’ expenses have often been paid by the brands or the CFDA in the past. And even those who did make the trip essentially skipped the last day of shows on Thursday, which had more spread-out schedule of lesser-known names such as Luar and C2H4.
Despite the challenges, the organizers remain committed to the idea of a separate men’s week.

Rihanna Brings Fenty Back to New York Fashion Week

Au revoir, Proenza. Adieu, Rodarte. Ta-ta, Thom Browne. While several high-profile American brands have decided to abandon New York Fashion Week for Paris, at least one major international name is doing the opposite and bringing her show back to town: Rihanna.
After two seasons showing her Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection in Paris, WWD has learned that Rihanna is heading back to New York Fashion Week, where she launched the line with her first show for fall 2016.
Rihanna was unavailable for comment but Puma issued this statement: “After two successful seasons showing during Paris Fashion Week, Rihanna has decided to return to New York and show her Fenty Puma by Rihanna spring 2018 collection during NYFW, making this the first time she will present during September NYFW.”
Details of the date and location of the show have yet to be confirmed, but if the past is any indication, it will be one of the late shows with an elaborate set. Rihanna presented her first Fenty Puma collection at 23 Wall Street, followed by spring 2017 at Paris’ Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, and most recently at Bibliothèque Nationale de France for fall.

Designers to Watch During New York Fashion Week: Men’s

Brand: Private Policy
Designers: Haoran Li and Siying Qu
Aesthetic: Genderless luxury streetwear
Backstory: The duo met while they were design students at The New School’s Parsons School of Design. Both China natives who had emigrated to New York to fulfill their dreams in fashion, they graduated in May 2015 and blended Qu’s talents in women’s wear and Li’s in men’s wear to create Private Policy. They offered up a range of unisex silhouettes in high-quality fabrics such as satin/velvet, silk/wool and fur, with a mission to reinvent downtown streetwear. But the collection also delivers a loud societal message and a call to action — prior seasons have taken on issues such as slave labor and global warning.
Spring Inspiration: Trinkets: A View of America Through Foreigners’ Eyes. The idea behind the collection is that in light of the current political climate, the idea of the American Dream may be lost. So the duo collected some pieces from ordinary life and infused them into Native American-inspired vests and jackets, reinvented denim jackets and pants embellished with rhinestones and abstract prints that resemble the Thank You plastic bags used at convenience stores around the country.
Why They Want to Show in New York: New York is where

Molly Goddard Puts on ‘Fashion in Motion’ Show at the V&A

MOLLY’S WORLD: British designer Molly Goddard staged a show at the V&A’s newly opened Sainsbury Gallery — and took the opportunity to introduce pieces from her first pre-collection — as part of the museum’s ongoing Fashion in Motion series.
The range was more wearable than her fantastical main line, with its outsized proportions and sweeps of tulle. They also featured more pattern, from floral prints to tartan ones.
Goddard said the pre-collection was also inspired “by all the bit I love from the V&A’s collection, from embroidery to 17th-century underwear and a section on punk.”
It was the first show that Goddard hosted outside the official fashion week calendar. The Fashion in Motion series is for members of the public and the lines to enter Goddard’s show wound all the way around the museum.
“We made a lot of effort to make the show really special — it’s the biggest one we’ve ever done. It’s great not to have the pressure to produce things that are on-trend or seasonal,” said the designer, adding that she and her sister Alice had fun picking our their favorite designs.
She said their selection included some the “most ridiculous and unwearbale” pieces she has produced. They included a tiered

Susan Sarandon Stars in new Mercedes-Benz Fashion Campaign

CHAPTER TWO: The  Mercedes-Benz #mbcollective campaign is going into its second chapter, with Susan Sarandon moving into the Generation Now driver’s seat occupied by M.I.A. last season. On Wednesday the actress was in Berlin to officially launch the car maker’s new emotionally and electrically charged fashion campaign during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, joined by her chosen Generation Next protégé, documentary film maker and RYOT co-founder Bryn Mooser, and the campaign’s photographer and film maker, Luke Gilford.  As for the automotive link, it’s Concept EQ, which stands for electric intelligence and is the new electrically powered car brand being developed by Mercedes-Benz. Also on hand were four of the five young designers of Mercedes’ International Designer Exchange who are another creative part of the #mbcollective : William Fan, Ran Fan, Anna October, Steven Tai and Xiao Li.
At an exclusive but extremely congenial dinner at Soho House, Sarandon quipped, “I’m thrilled they considered me Generation Now not Past.” She added that in talking to Mercedes, “it was clear they are forward thinking, which seduced me.” But basically, Sarandon talked to the guests about the issues which engage and move her: her experiences in Lesbos last year talking to and filming refugees to

Ones to Watch During Milan Men’s Fashion Week

POAN

Georg Weissacher had a strong men’s wear background when he founded POAN in 2015.
The Austrian designer, who was the former head of men’s wear at Vivienne Westwood and who lives in London, said the brand’s name stands for “Peoples of All Nations.” As such, the label takes a multicultural approach, and every season focuses on a distinctive theme involving all mankind.
Describing his method as “holistic,” Weissacher said he tends to approach the development of his collections by using many art forms, everything from cinema and music to literature and architecture.
This results in an eclectic, versatile collection created in the area around Florence and defined by a modern take on tailoring that combines, in the same garment, knitted and woven elements crafted from the same fibers.
By calling his spring 2018 collection, which will be shown in Milan on June 18, “Le Phénomène humain,” Weissacher paid homage to the namesake philosophy and theology book written by Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin in 1955.
“I stole this volume when I was 20 from a monastery’s library,” said the designer, explaining that the book focuses on Teilhard de Chardin’s idea that evolution is a complex process.
Weissacher also said the collection

Olivier Saillard on Reinventing the Fashion Museum

THE GREAT EXHIBITION: Olivier Saillard’s new exhibition, “The Ephemeral Museum of Fashion,” on show at the Costume Gallery of the Palazzo Pitti in Florence through October 22, may not be here to stay but the Parisian curator hopes it will have a lasting impact on the approach to fashion museums in Italy and beyond.
The poetic show unites rare pieces from the Palazzo Pitti’s collections as well as the Palais Galliera in Paris that Saillard directs, combining historical costumes and vintage designer gowns with contemporary creations on loan from Italian, French, Belgian and Japanese houses.
Spread throughout a series of the palazzo’s richly decorated rooms, the pieces are grouped into themes. Highlights include “Dust, Color, Time,” presenting creations including an exquisite 1911 Mariano Fortuny silk plissé gown and a 1966 couture wedding dress by Madame Grès whose hues and textiles have been affected — for better or for worse — by contact with dust.
In “Clothes, Hanging, Waiting,” a row of outerwear pieces ranging from an early-1900s dust coat to a 1990 cage jacket by Jean Paul Gaultier hung from coat pegs, while in a room titled “The Dresses of Oblivion” an ivory silk crepe Madeleine Vionnet dress from 1933 is on display for

One For The Boys’ Fashion Ball Kicks Off LFW Men’s

BOYS IN BLUE: The dress code for the annual One For The Boys charity Fashion Ball was “black tie with a hint of blue,” in honor of the ribbon logo of the official London Fashion Week Men’s charity.
“Not really the right day for it, is it?” quipped one guest, apropos the U.K. election results which saw the Conservative “blue” party fail to achieve the margin of votes required to form a majority government.
That didn’t stop attendees from embracing the theme, with shades of cobalt, indigo, azure and cerulean appearing in pocket squares and bowties throughout the ballroom at the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone.
The charity, founded by Sofia Davis and chaired by Samuel L. Jackson, works to raise awareness and educate men about the signs and symptoms of male cancers to look out for encourage them to act quickly and speak up if something is amiss.

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

Bodybound
Born and raised in London, Bodybound creative directors Kim Wilkins and Pliny Champion launched their label in 2012.
The duo met in college. Wilkins studied knitwear at Central Saint Martins and graduated in 2005, then moved on to study men’s wear at the Royal College of Art. He completed the program in 2009. Champion took a more varied route, going from studying biology to environmental public relations and photography. He ended up in fashion, graduating from Imperial College London. They have worked for labels including Alexander McQueen, Ermenegildo Zegna, Matthew Williamson, Halston and Mark Fast. The designers, who produce their collections between London and Bali, were selected by Yohji Yamamoto as finalists for the Hyères award in 2012.
Wilkins said their man is someone who “has an appreciation for subversion.” Champion added: “A little irreverence never did anyone any harm.
“We believe in challenging the relationship between utility and luxury,” Champion said. “We’re interested in the modern masculine aesthetic, and create innovative textiles and engineered knitwear for utilitarian silhouettes.”
Wilkins said the due is “always looking to challenge mediocrity. Everyone’s approach to design is unique, the collections reflect our interests. Our process is complicated, but the message is simple.”

Central Saint Martins Hosts Annual BA Fashion Show

LONDON — The Central Saint Martins annual BA fashion show highlighted works from 41 students studying fashion design with marketing, knitwear, men’s wear, fashion print and women’s wear as their specializations. Designs ranged from the conceptual and expressive to the eccentric.
Goom Heo won the L’Oréal Professionnel Young Talent Award, which comes with an undisclosed cash prize. The fashion print student, who has already done internships at Molly Goddard and Kenzo, was inspired by the men she discovered during her travels across Asia. This was Heo’s first foray into men’s wear with ensembles including a layered look featuring a top made from a stack of vintage T-shirts. She paired the top with shiny black trousers.
Second place went to LVMH Grand Prix scholar and knitwear student Sarah Ansah, who created a red-and-white striped knit crop top and matching miniskirt.
Fashion design and marketing student Sheryn Akiki came in third. Her final look was based on a military flight suit done in soft linen. She meticulously twisted elastic into the oversize trousers giving them a distressed effect. Her dresses were handwoven and screen printed with enlarged graphic patterns.
Women’s wear student Xiaoming Shan was recognized for his creativity and won kudos from the judges for his

EXCLUSIVE: Vlone to Show During Paris Men’s Fashion Week

It’s an interesting week for 25-year-old Harlem native A$ AP Bari to reveal he’s showing Vlone — his highly sought-after streetwear line — during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.
It’s the same week Gucci has come under fire for a jacket Alessandro Michele presented at his Cruise 2018 show, which looked very similar to a piece Dapper Dan, another designer from Harlem, created in 1989 for Olympic gold medalist Diane Dixon. Dapper Dan, whose real name is Daniel Day, spent the Eighties outfitting celebrities in his custom pieces, which he made by printing luxury logos onto different fabrics. Critics were upset that Gucci wasn’t transparent about the reference. They later acknowledged his influence in an Instagram post.
“I feel like nobody should hate on what somebody gets inspired by,” said Bari, who is a member of the A$ AP Mob collective. “But it’s sad that it takes 20 or 25 years for them to be inspired by Dapper Dan when he could have been a designer for Gucci. Why didn’t Louis Vuitton give him an opportunity to design for them?”
Bari, who has no formal fashion training, is a reflection of how things are slowly shifting and brands are starting to work directly with streetwear designers.

New Names, Resort-Focus Energize Australian Fashion Week

SYDNEY — New names, Liberty print swimwear and unisex surfwear were among the biggest buyer takeaways from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
Now in its 22nd year, the annual event pushed dates back several weeks to rebrand itself from a spring to resort showcase last year, resulting in a 75 percent increase in international buyer attendance over 2015, according to organizer IMG.
The company said it expects this year’s eight-day event, which concluded Sunday with a weekend of ticketed consumer presentations of the week’s highlights, to have drawn a cumulative attendance of 30,000.
Among them were a contingent of 33 international delegates, including 23 buyers — a number on par with 2016 — from New York, London, Paris, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Dubai. Airfares and accommodation were covered by the event.
More than 80 brands from Australia, New Zealand and China were showcased in 42 solo and group runway shows and a new IMG-operated “Designer Suites” showroom located at the event’s central hub for five years, Redfern’s Carriageworks.
Buyers praised the number of collections on offer, the event’s friendly vibe, good organization and the picturesque off-site locations that anchored the event in Sydney.

Rihanna Honored by Parsons, Watches Student Fashion Show

The New School’s Parsons School of Design students had several high-profile spectators during the school’s benefit on Monday night. The crowd at Pier Sixty included designers and retail executives, including honorees Eileen Fisher and Neiman Marcus Group’s Karen Katz, and even a celebrity – none other than Rihanna. The three were recognized for their work in performance, design, and fostering social good.
“You should be celebrated for your creativity, for your fearlessness, for your persistence and determination. You should be celebrated for all of the work you put into building your future, for being different, for not being given enough credit,” Rihanna told the crowd, following a runway show of the school’s student fashion designs. “My point is, we often tear our youth down when we should be building them up. At the end of the day, our future is in their hands.”
Rihanna closed out the night with Donna Karan. The pair recently teamed for an initiative to benefit the singer’s Clara Lionel Foundation and Haitian artisans through the Design, Organization, Training Center in Port-au-Prince. This summer Karan will take three Parsons students – the winners were revealed at Monday’s benefit – along with her to Haiti through the Design Fellowship

At the 2017 BBMAs on Sunday night, Halsey took that message to heart ― showing up in a bra, a skirt fashioned out of what looked like a trench coat, and heels that laced up all the way to her thighs. Singer Dencia wore what some likened to a Rubik’s Cube, while Celine Dion wowed in a white dress with built-in angel wings.

Mary Ping’s Firm to Be Honored With Cooper Hewitt’s National Design Award for Fashion

NEW YORK — In regard to this year’s National Design Award for fashion, Slow and Steady Wins the Race really has won.
The company and founder Mary Ping will be honored by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum at the Oct. 19 gala at its Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden.
In a phone interview Thursday, Ping said, “It’s kind of kismet because technically May/June is the 15th anniversary of the very first collection.”
A Vassar art major, after graduation she piled on the freelance work for Talbots and The Limited while simultaneously trying to get her own business off the ground. “I had all these ideas percolating outside of purely designing something, I needed some sort of framework. I was constantly looking at how the structure of the system existed. Maybe this was feeding into the fact that I was writing five papers every two weeks and there was all this analysis going in my head,” she explained. “While my parents were very supportive in the idea, it was not the most practical hope for me to go into fashion. There were definitely tugs-of-war going forward so I tried to be self-initiated with internships during Vassar.”

SHARK TALES: In retailers’ ongoing battle for exclusivity and newness, Mytheresa.com is partnering with Miu Miu to launch an exclusive capsule collection for spring 2017.
The line, a colorful concoction of Miu Miu signatures, features ready-to-wear, as well as handbags and footwear, and will land at Mytheresa.com on April 26. Focusing on bright prints and girly embellishments, the capsule captures the playful spirit that is Prada’s sister label’s signature.

South African Fashion Weeks See Spurt of Young Designers

South Africa’s two rival fashion weeks were a celebration of African design as well as an indication of the growing corporate support for the country’s young designers.
At South Africa Fashion Week in Johannesburg, which was held earlier this month, one of its banner sponsors, the department store chain Woolworths, backed the Woolworths StyleBySA show, which featured eight local designers: Rich Mnisi, Thebe Magugu, AKJP, Maria McCloy, Sol-Sol, Selfi and Young & Lazy.
The designers showed modern streetwear to footwear and accessories inspired by the African continent; from the runway, the collaborative capsule collection was, in a first for SAFW, made available online immediately and what ensued was “a frenzy of online sales,” according to Charmaine Huet, Woolworths’ group director of marketing and sustainability.
Fast-tracking runway to retail has been a priority for the partnership of Woolworths and SAFW.
“As a passionately South African retailer we want to boost the visibility and viability of local designers,” Huet noted. “The quality of the work on show, and the response to it, is compelling proof of the incredible local talent the South African fashion industry has on offer.’’
After inventory of the StyleBySA capsule collection was exhausted via online sales, the collections became available in select Woolworths

The Blend of the Traditional and Contemporary Dominates Amazon India Fashion Week

NEW DELHI, India — While the fashion  silhouette changed this season at the 29th edition of Amazon India Fashion Week Winter 2017, held in association with Maybelline New York, the shows opened with a focus on how to blend traditional craft with contemporary design.
The first show of the week, featuring 13 designers, focused on using handlooms in modern fashion. A collaborative effort between the Fashion Design Council of India and the Handloom School supported by retailer Good Earth showcased work by designers including Rohit Bal, Rajesh Pratap, Singh Suket Dhir, Raw Mango, Akaaro, Antar-Agni, Eka, Pero and Urvashi Kaur.
As Sunil Sethi, president of the Fashion Design Council of India, observed, the event dedicated to India’s handlooms and textiles did indeed make a “giant leap in the legacy to promote the homespun.”
Anita Lal, founder of The Good Earth Co., said, “We’ve never participated in fashion shows. But we realized that in order to popularize the concept of handloom it has to be seen as something desirable, something that has a certain appeal to younger people, which is why we did the fashion show and sponsored.”

Fast Fashion Is Getting Even Faster. Is That a Good Thing?

Two British companies are trying to find out.

Style – Esquire

SHOPPING DEALS UPDATE:


Fashion Store Calls This A ‘Chandelier Head Clip,’ And Twitter Isn’t Happy

A maang tikka, known to some as a tikli, is a traditional South Asian accessory typically worn by brides from the center part of their hair to the forehead, over the ajna chakra.

It symbolizes the bride’s third eye as well as the union between two people on a spiritual, physical and emotional level, according to BollywoodShaadis.com.

So when ASOS, a British-based fashion retailer, put one up for sale on its website and labeled it a “chandelier hair clip,” many people of South Asian descent were not OK.

South Asian and Hindu accessories have been the target of cultural appropriation for a while, but especially since the rise of trendy “festival wear.”

The bindi, for example, is typically worn by South Asian women to signify their marital status, to remind them of prayer or, like the maang tikka, mark the anja shakra. Today, some people wear it just to look cool at Coachella.

But ASOS’ apparent rebranding of the tikka was the last straw for many people.

Some people assumed the company was too lazy to learn the South Asian accessory’s real name. Others wanted ASOS to drop the “chandelier” nonsense and call it what it is.

“Dear @ASOS,” one Twitter user wrote. “If you really want to be a cultural appropriation enabler, the least you can do is call it a Tikka, not a chandelier hair clip!!”

Aisha Haque, a Bengali woman in London who goes by @ashlibob on Twitter, was one of the first people to call ASOS out on its “chandelier hair clip,” according to Globalnews.ca.

She told the Canadian news site that ASOS, much like many other fashion companies, gets away with appropriating a culture she holds dear.

“You can’t just blatantly take something from another culture and give no acknowledgment. That is highly offensive,” Haque told Globalnews.ca.

“These big companies get away with it again and again,” she added. “I’d like to tell people to start understanding what cultural appropriation is and that it’s very much okay to make noise when you see it happening.”

At the very least, ASOS appears to have noticed the chandelier backlash.

As of Thursday evening, the “Faux Pearl Chandelier Hair Clip” was no longer available on the ASOS website, but slightly similar products, including one named the “Orelia Semi Precious Festival Hair Tika” were.

ASOS did not immediately return The Huffington Post’s request for comment.

L.A. Laker Jordan Clarkson and Chris Stamp Link for Fan Fashion Event

Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson took a moment off the court to join L.A. streetwear designer Chris Stamp of Stampd for the Delta Air Lines Beyond the Court event on Monday. Held at the brand’s La Brea Boulevard store, the early evening affair featured an interactive experience for 100 fans who clamored for selfies following a Q&A about Clarkson’s design aspirations.
“It’s been a process,” Clarkson told WWD beforehand, explaining he’s been “drawing out different things and exploring” the possibility of launching his own line once the basketball season ends. “A lot of it is probably going to be done this summer when I don’t have anything to do.”
The 24-year-old basketball player—who has reportedly dated models Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Chanel Iman—describes his style as “kinda off the wall.”
Prior to the event, Stamp met with Clarkson to offer advice and discuss the design process. “It was cool to show him what we do and to see which of our pieces he was drawn to outside of what I maybe had thought,” said Stamp. “Style is about being comfortable, being yourself in your own skin, and I think he does a great job with that. I think he’s very natural

Rachel Roy Dishes on Instant Fashion, L.A. Life and Spring Favorites

Rachel Roy has embraced digital marketing and social media from the start — sometimes landing herself in controversy, which she gracefully manages to shake off — so it’s no surprise she’s made a series of short videos titled “Rachel’s Favorites” at Smashbox in Culver City, Calif., earlier this month, that are set to debut on her site April 1.

A look from Rachel Roy’s spring favorites digital campaign. 

The designer singled out 10 pieces from her spring 2017 campaign, ranging in price from $ 49 to $ 179 retail, and showed her audience how to wear each piece. A blush blazer for $ 179 could be paired with white jeans or a chambray shirtdress, while an off-the-shoulder shredded sweatshirt for $ 79 each provided a more casual option.
“These videos are about why I design, why I feel it’s helpful to have these pieces and what to wear them with. Hopefully, they serve the same purpose as social media, which is not only telling a story but having someone get to know you and what is important to you,” she said of integrating her philanthropic causes into the narrative. While the philanthropy might not match a denim blouse or a pair of jeans, while someone gets behind

Reem Acra to Hold Bridal Fashion Show at Tiffany Flagship on Fifth Avenue

ACRA’S BRIDAL MARCH: Reem Acra won’t just be using Tiffany & Co.’s Fifth Avenue flagship to debut her spring bridal collections. The designer also plans to create wedding gowns and dresses inspired by Tiffany style and glamour.
While not a brand collaboration, Tiffany first connected with Acra when one of her gowns was featured as part of the Moda Operandi exhibition at the store last fall. Afterward, Acra “shared her affinity for the Tiffany brand,” a Tiffany spokesman said Monday.
Two hundred guests are expected at the April 18 fashion show. But there will be no cobranding or cross-promoting of the 20-style collection beyond the event invitations, the Tiffany spokesman said.
By staging a bridal show at Tiffany, Acra will be following in the footsteps of Carolina Herrera, who held one there in 2009 inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse and other artists. And another bridal powerhouse, Vera Wang, teamed with Tiffany for a runway show at the Audi Fashion Festival in Singapore in 2011. Acra declined comment Monday through a spokesman.

José Manuel Albesa to Succeed Ralph Toledano, Helm Puig Fashion

PARIS – Puig is shaking up its upper management ranks and has promoted José Manuel Albesa to steer its fashion houses, including Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci, Paco Rabanne and Jean Paul Gaultier, WWD has learned.
The executive adds the responsibility to his current role as chief brand officer at family-owned Puig.
Ralph Toledano, who joined as president of Puig fashion five years ago, has exited the Spanish company.
Reached by WWD, Toledano said he submitted his resignation at the end of last year and quietly wrapped up his tenure at the end of January. He said he would take a short break and take up a new role in September.
Toledano declined to elaborate on his next move, saying only that “it’s a totally different activity, and I’m delighted with the idea of starting a new career.”
“We would like to thank Ralph for his dedication during the past five years, and wish him the very best for the future,” Puig said.
The company asserted that the nomination of Albesa reinforces the cohesiveness of its long-term brand-building strategy.
In the new structure, reporting to Albesa, are Ana Trias, brand vice president of Carolina Herrera and Nina Ricci, and Vincent Thilloy, brand vice president of Paco Rabanne and Jean

Artist Isabella Huffington Delves Into Fashion With Two Items for Bo Guo’s Designow Web Site

OUT OF THE FRAME: In keeping on track to make art more accessible, Isabella Huffington has a two-item collaboration with Designow and two upcoming exhibitions.
While her paintings can be “kind of intense, colorful, bright and a bit overwhelming,” she decided to translate a “very light one” called “Chrysanthemum” for the dress and scarf that will be sold on Designow’s site starting March 30. The artwork’s floral motif is actually a collage made of found objects like books and magazines. With clothing, you’re thinking about the consumer and you’re thinking about yourself, so it’s much more like an architect. You want to be authentic but it also has to look good on the person.” Huffington said of the $ 250 long-sleeve knee-length dress with a tapered waist. “You could wear it to a party but you could also wear it to work at 20 or at 40. I’m really interested in making art that has mass appeal.”
There is also a scarf with an artistic box that is geared for gift-giving or for a younger shopper who might not want to wear a dress. Huffington said of her fashion debut, “This is the first dip in the water but I’m definitely interested in

Cynthia Rowley Stages Fall 2017 Fashion Show in Shenzhen, China

SHENZHEN – The sweatshirts were emblazoned with “Cali/New York” and “Empire State of Mind” was thumping in the background, but Cynthia Rowley’s fall 2017 runway show unfolded thousands of miles from the U.S. over the weekend.
The designer swapped her New York Fashion Week presentation for one in China to on March 18, and it was one of the highlights of Shenzhen Fashion Week, an event organized and funded by the Shenzhen People’s Government with WME-IMG. Having shown her resort collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia last May, Rowley said she believes in growing her global audience by staging shows in new cities.
“We manufacture in Shenzhen, so we liked the idea of giving love by showing in the same city,” said Rowley, whose home furnishings line launched in China last year. “It’s almost like creating our own vertical economy: Being able to distribute in the same place, rather than just making and shipping out of here.”

The lineup — a mix of new looks made exclusively for the trip and pieces from a lookbook released in February — featured an array of party dresses and separates with Rowley’s signature dazzle. Jewel-toned ribbons sat atop models’

Phoenix Art Museum Unveils ‘Yeohlee|Serra’ Exhibition, Combining Fashion and Art

UNDER THE DESERT SUN: The Yeohlee Teng designs that are now on view in the Phoenix Art Museum’s “Yeohlee|Serra” exhibition were a long time coming.
Curator Dennita Sewell first saw Yeohlee’s pieces, when she was a collections manager at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. “She saw them there and I guess they stayed with her for a very long time.” Teng said. “That was in 1995 and the pieces were from spring of 1992.”
Sewell said, “I was there when they were donated and I just always remembered how striking they were. You can imagine in that environment where there are so many great things, and they made such an impression on me — the graphic nature [of the pieces], the originality. I believe she came in and talked about the zero waste [principle] and how they had been sewed from seven meters.”
The compact exhibition juxtaposes Teng’s ivory and black designs opposite Richard Serra’s oil-stick paintings. The artist is known to heat black paint stick sometimes to a fluid state to create elemental forms. But Teng noted, “Both bodies of work happened independently of each other. They just happened in the same time frame but in different disciplines.”
Another curator, Susan Sidlauskas,

Fashion East’s Matty Bovan Celebrates Barbie Collaboration

BIRTHDAY GIRL: Up-and-coming British designer Matty Bovan has been focusing his efforts to dressing a very special celebrity client for her birthday celebration this month: Barbie.
Mattel tapped the young designer to create outfits for the famous doll, as well as an accompanying film, to mark the 58th anniversary of the launch of Barbie.
Bovan unveiled the results of the collaboration at Mayfair’s The Women’s Space, to an intimate crowd of family and friends which included the designers Stephen Jones, Charles Jeffrey and Ryan Lo.
Bovan painted Barbie’s face with the bright, glitter eye shadows he favors for himself and dressed her in pieces from his spring 2017 collection, from chunky pink knitted sweaters, to crystal-embellished tasseled skirts and a velvet green printed dress.
“I’ve loved Barbie since childhood because for me it provided a blank canvas to be creative, plus Barbie is such a recognizable brand, so it was an immediate yes for me when Mattel got in touch,” Bovan said.
Guests gathered around the Barbies all smiles, taking pictures on their phones. Jones couldn’t resist taking a white rose and placing it upside down on one of the dolls’ heads as a hat. “Do you approve?” he asked Bovan.
