All the High Fashion Moments From Beyoncé’s ‘Spirit’ Music Video

Beyoncé’s “Spirit” music video is visually striking, both for its picturesque landscape and high-fashion moments.
Filmed in the Grand Canyon, Beyoncé is joined by a host of dancers and her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, dressed in looks ranging from Valentino’s spring 2019 couture collection to up-and-coming international brands, including Canadian designer Mark Fast and Brazilian brand Maison Alexandrine. The looks were styled by Zerina Akers.

The music video was debuted Tuesday evening and is a part of the upcoming “The Lion King” live-action reboot’s soundtrack, which Beyoncé curated and produced. Beyoncé herself voices adult Nala in the film and joined the film’s cast for the Los Angeles premiere on July 10, where she had a mother-daughter twinning moment with Blue Ivy, and for the London premiere on Sunday, where Beyoncé and husband Jay Z met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The “Spirit” music video starts off with Beyoncé sitting in the desert wearing a color-blocked, exaggerated ruffle look from Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino spring 2019 couture collection, which celebrated black women. She was joined by Blue Ivy, who wore a similar lilac-colored ruffle dress.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ Reboot Is Coming: A Look Back at the Show’s Iconic Fashion Moments

A “Gossip Girl” reboot is officially in the works.
Seven years after it went off the air, the CW teen drama, famous for its over-the-top fashion, is being remade for HBO Max, a new streaming service launching in spring 2020, which will be home to HBO and WarnerMedia programming.
According to TVLine, the reboot will also be set in New York and will highlight how social media plays into the lives of elite Manhattan private school students. The show’s former executive producers — Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran — are returning for the reboot, but it has not yet been announced if the original series’ cast — including Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley, among others — will be returning.
“Gossip Girl” has long been admired as one of the most fashionable TV shows of the late Aughts, attracting some of the industry’s biggest names for cameos, including Rachel Zoe, Karlie Kloss, Cynthia Rowley and Tory Burch, among others. Costume designer Eric Daman dressed the cast in looks straight from the runway, creating the show’s most iconic fashion moments. The series’ last season in particular had a number of standout looks, including Meester’s character, Blair Waldorf, who wore an Elie

Vogue Talents to Celebrate 10th Anniversary With Exhibition at Milan Fashion Week

TALENTS ON SHOW: To mark its 10th anniversary, Vogue Talents, Vogue Italia’s fashion talent scouting project, will be celebrated during the upcoming Milan Fashion Week with an exhibition at Brera’s Palazzo Cusani, running Sept. 20 and 21.
The exhibit will include the creations of 70 designers who in the past 10 years were involved in the program, which was founded in 2009 by the magazine’s late editor in chief Franca Sozzani and Sara Sozzani Maino, currently head of Vogue Talents and Vogue Italia deputy editor for special fashion projects.
“Vogue Talents was created to support the new generation of creatives at a time when few people believed in talent,” Sozzani Maino said. “It’s borderless and barrier-free, and it searches the world, because there’s talent everywhere. Our mission going forward is to act responsibly and set an example that the world needs to change.”
The list of designers scouted by the team of Vogue Talents includes names such as Jonathan Anderson, Aquazzura, Giannico, Paula Cademartori, Arthur Arbesser, Simone Rocha and Bethany Williams.
In keeping with the 10th anniversary celebrations, some of the aforementioned designers will explain the role that Vogue Talents had in the development of their careers with short movies which will be posted

Derrill Osborn, Former Men’s Fashion Director for Neiman’s, Dies in Dallas

Derrill Radcliff Osborn, the flamboyant former men’s fashion director for Neiman Marcus, died in his Dallas home Monday night. He was 76.
The cause is not known at this time, but his death was confirmed by Nelson Bell, a pastor at the Highland Park Presbyterian Church. Bell said Osborn, who had been ill for some time, had planned his own service and a date for the memorial will be set shortly.
Osborn was descended from pioneers and ranchers who settled in New Mexico. After serving in the U.S. Army, he started his retail career working at Saks Fifth Avenue in 1964. In the decade he was employed there, he worked his way up from a salesman to a buyer. Osborn also served briefly as general manager of the Lew Ritter men’s specialty store in Beverly Hills before joining Neiman Marcus, where he worked as a buyer for six years before being named vice president of men’s tailored clothing. He retired from Neiman’s in 2002.

Launchmetrics’ Numbers Support Strength of Paris, Italian Men’s Fashion Weeks

It’s no surprise that Paris Men’s Fashion Week has been gaining in importance as New York and London continue to struggle. Marquee shows such as Louis Vuitton and Dior with their buzzy creative directors are overshadowing brands showing in other cities.
And while the Milan calendar is also experiencing some strain, the big Italian brands are still managing to hold their own against their Parisian counterparts.
Looking back at the spring 2019 season, Launchmetrics’ recently released State of Menswear report found that, thanks in large part to the debut of Virgil Abloh as creative director, Louis Vuitton was by far the most popular show of the season with 18.2 million media placements. That number outpaces Dior, the next most popular show, with 9.7 million MIVs, or media impact values, Launchmetrics’ proprietary measurement of media placement in all channels: social, print and online.
Third on the list is Versace, with 5 million MIVs, followed by Prada with 3.2 million, Valentino with 3.1 million, Giorgio Armani with 2.7 million, Off-White with 2.5 million, Yohji Yamamoto with 2.194 million, Boris Bidjan Saberi with 2.190 million and Balmain with 2 million.
Noticeably absent from this list, which includes coed shows, are any designer brands showing in either London

Biotech Materials, Innovation and Fashion Collide at Inaugural Summit in Stamford, Conn.

How apparel can be hazardous to your health, the need for more cross-disciplinary biotech initiatives and the importance of relatable storytelling were among the topics discussed during Monday’s inaugural BioFashionTech Summit at the Avon Theatre in Stamford, Conn.
Democratic Congresswoman Anne Hughes helped kick off the event, which featured an assortment of engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, retailers and fashion executives. Elastin made from the adductor muscles of oysters and the prospect of using corn crops as alternatives to denim were among the forward-thinking ideas that were being explored during last weekend’s Bio Challenge, according to David S. Kong, director of the MIT Media Lab Community Biotechnology Initiative. Aside from being a research scientist, Kong is a synthetic biologist, community organizer, musician, artist and photographer. His varied pursuits epitomized the summit’s multipronged approach and intent in gathering different mind-sets to strive toward a unified approach.
Organizers noted how within one year, Gen Z will outstrip Millennials as the most populous generation, comprising 32 percent of the population. Millennials and Gen Z are branded as mission-driven and impact-oriented.
Eileen Fisher’s sustainable materials and transparency manager Megan Meiklejohn singled out soil health as the most urgent issue. The event’s lead discussion about “The State of the Planet”

Grailed Opens Paris Pop-Up for Men’s Fashion Week

TOUCHDOWN: Grailed has landed in Paris. The online men’s fashion and streetwear marketplace has opened a pop-up on Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau through Saturday, designed to be a “shoppable showroom” of more than 300 new and archival men’s wear pieces.
The showcase is the platform’s second pop-up after one in Los Angeles’ Fairfax district that ran for a few days in April.
According to a spokesman for Grailed, the marketplace has a strong following in Europe. Paris, as one of the world’s most influential cities for men’s style, was a logical choice, he said.
At the Paris space, customizable Grailed lab coats are available on a first come, first served and “best dressed” basis, according to the platform, with 40 up for grabs each day.
On Saturday, an Instagram competition will see 1,000 euros gifted to one attendee who posts and tags the showcase with the hashtag #GrailedPFW.

Muscle Beach Finds a Home in Fashion

LOS ANGELES — With so many brands vying for attention in the activewear space with their moisture wicking and four-way stretch, Yeah, I Work Out bypassed the noise by choosing to root its collections in the bodybuilding community — with some interesting results.
The fairly new line has found success among both the core of those who actually like to pump iron and the fashion set, with the help of retail partners Dover Street Market and Mr Porter.
Y,IWO on Friday will release its collaboration with industry veteran Ric Drasin, creator of the Gold’s Gym logo. The capsule launches at Dover Street Market’s Los Angeles store, where there will also be a Y,IWO installation inspired by the Muscle Beach Gym in Venice, Calif. Distribution will later expand to additional Dover Street Markets, with the line also sold through Y,IWO’s web shop.
The pieces draw from the archives of Drasin’s Eighties line Big Boy Clothing, using three designs: “Lifestyles of the Ripped and Aimless,” “Gym Bums of California” and “Club Sweat.” The designs will be featured on shorts, T-shirts, hoodies, muscle pants and sweatpants.

Futuristic Fibers Are Always in Fashion at Advanced Functional Fabrics of America

Fashion brands live and die based on service — whether that is online, in stores or through their factories.
However engrained that is in the industry, the forward-thinking Advanced Functional Fabrics of America wants insiders and consumers to recognize the service that technologically enhanced fabrics can provide. Running tights that illuminate when facing headlights, color-changing garments, cellphone-charging fibers, athletic wear equipped to share real-time physiological data and app-powered trade show bags that share personal information are among the Cambridge, Mass.-based group’s projects. Developing fabric as a service or fabric as software is part of its mission.
The concept of fabrics as a service as opposed to fabrics as a commodity is going to make the industry think about their business models in a very different way, according to AFFOA chief product officer Tosha Hays. “With subscription models like Rent The Runway, Harry’s and things like that, the consumer’s mind is shifting about how they actually purchase and use goods. The time is right for us to think of fabrics as a service,” she said, adding that services-enriched apparel is more appealing to consumers whether they are making purchases or renting “versus just buying it as a commodity and just throwing it out.”

Pitti Uomo and Milan Men’s Fashion Week: United They Stand

MILAN — Slim? Yes. Inconsequential? No.
There’s no arguing that the Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week calendar has shrunk in days and number of shows from years past and this season, which runs from June 15 to 17, it lost a cornerstone in Prada, which exceptionally decamped to Shanghai to show on June 6. Itinerant shows and coed collections in general have chipped away at Milan’s men’s calendar — but observers are still trumpeting its central role, especially pivoting around Pitti Uomo.
“Between Florence and Milan, it’s the most beautiful fashion week in the world,” enthused Brunello Cucinelli. “Pitti Uomo is an open-air fashion show, with 30,000 people walking around in a continuous exchange of ideas and it’s complementary to the big-name fashion shows in Milan, whose nature it is to hold such shows.”
Carlo Capasa, president of the Italian Camera della Moda, has long been saying that Milan Men’s Fashion Week and Pitti Uomo together form one single Italian fashion week. “They have two different vocations but there’s no other country that has this kind of global offer and impact that Italy has,” Capasa contended, touting the 800 showrooms and 3,000 brands present in Milan.

Olivier Saillard Stages Ode to Contemporary Men’s Fashion

FLORENCE, Italy — “For museums, it’s easier to present an evening dress from the Fifties by a house like Balenciaga or Dior, but it’s not so easy to provoke a dream with a gray costume,” said Olivier Saillard.
For his latest exhibition — titled “A Short Novel On Men’s Fashion, Thirty Years at Pitti Immagine Uomo” and produced in collaboration with the Fondazione Pitti Imagine Discovery to mark the 30th anniversary of Pitti Immagine Uomo — he set himself the challenge of curating a show based on how men actually dress. “I looked at the [museum’s] collection, evening dresses by Dior, Balenciaga, Vionnet, and finally I realized, we don’t have any jeans, T-shirts — ordinary clothes which are also poetic,” he said a preview of the exhibition on Tuesday.

British Label Stefan Cooke Finds Its Voice, and Flies Solo, at London Fashion Week Men’s

LONDON — Stefan Cooke and Jake Burt, cofounders of the label Stefan Cooke and finalists for the LVMH Prize, are about to stage their first solo runway show on June 9 during London Men’s Fashion Week, and they’re feeling the heat. “It feels surreal to be doing it by ourselves. It also feels intimidating,” said Cooke, who has witnessed a shower of accolades over the past two years.
The brand has won the H&M Design Award and the L’Oréal Professional Creative Award, but Cooke and Burt will now have to wait until September to see if they’ve scooped the LVMH Prize.
Having shown under the Fashion East umbrella, the duo have moved on from conceptual to more commercially focused designs. The label is stocked at Machine-A, Dover Street Market and Matchesfashion.com.
Their lines for spring/summer 2020 have a more relaxed silhouette than in past seasons, where trousers and shirts were tight and cropped. They will also be introducing a new bag concept, a category that’s been performing well for the company.
As they build the brand, they’ve been asking themselves some difficult questions, such as: “How do you take all of the things that are Stefan Cooke, like textile manipulations, and turn them into

Fashion Rental Site Charlotte’s Closet Targets Teens

Faced with the prospect of buying her teenage daughter another expensive dress she’d wear only once or twice, Jen Forman created Charlotte’s Closet, a web site that offers Gen Z access to fashion’s sharing economy. Charlotte’s Closet rents, at up to 75 percent below retail, dresses and gowns for myriad social occasions, including proms, homecomings, bat mitzvahs, sweet sixteens and sorority formals. Dresses arrive the week of the event and can be kept for five days.
Charlotte’s Closet competes in the teen space with start-up Haverdash, which charges $ 59 per month for an unlimited rental program. The adult apparel rental arena is getting more crowded with specialty retailers such as Loft and Urban Outfitters joining leaders Stitch-Fix and Rent the Runway.

British Fashion Council Highlights London’s Diversity Ahead of London Fashion Week Men’s

LONDON — The British Fashion Council wanted to celebrate diversity and culture with its latest campaign, “This Is London,” during London Fashion Week Men’s, which runs June 8 to 10.
The campaign, a series of 12 images, features a group of industry figures hailing from different backgrounds, from poet James Massiah to up-and-coming designers Bethany Williams, Paria Farzaneh and Bianca Saunders, retailer Stavros Karelis, filmmaker Akinola Davis and musician Louis III. It was shot by London-based photographer Markn, who has previously worked with Nick Knight.
“We wanted to celebrate not only the designers, but also the broader creative community who all play a vital role in our industry’s culture and reputation,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of BFC, who also makes an appearance on the campaign, alongside Dylan Jones, editor in chief of British GQ and chair of men’s wear at the BFC.
“The ‘This Is London’ campaign shines a light on the incredible pool of talent that makes London the creative capital of the world. From rising stars to established names, the campaign features a diverse mix of individuals, celebrating the eccentricity of our capital while illustrating that LFWM is a global platform for innovation and culture,” added Jones.

Uovo Fine Art Storage Launches Fashion Storage Division

FASHION’S CLOSET CASES: The art storage and services company Uovo doesn’t need convincing that fashion is art. The company has introduced a fashion-friendly storage division, Moda.
Clients will find bespoke, climate-controlled storage for clothing, shoes, accessories and haute couture pieces. Like Uovo’s fine art clients, Moda ones can design their own private storage spaces for direct collection access or opt for “concierge storage” — a traditional valet receive-and-release approach. There are also two types of climate control, including humidity control that meets museum standards for optimal archival preservation.
Taking a page from the company’s art storage, Moda offers humidity-controlled storage and private room options for fashion storage. This division is geared for fashion houses, entertainers and private individuals.
Uovo founder and chairman Steven Guttman said the company has more than 650,000 square feet of storage in New York, so there is no limit for what it can accommodate. In addition, a 150,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, N.Y., later this year. “We felt ready to take our work in the fashion sector to the next level by formalizing our offerings with Moda,” Guttman said. “There is no space minimum or maximum for concierge storage.

New York Fashion Week: Men’s Hanging on by a Thread

New York Fashion Week: Men’s is on life support.
Less than three weeks until the start of the men’s spring runway season, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has finally released its calendar — and it’s not pretty.
There are fewer than 20 men’s designers showing and half are with Agentry PR’s New York Men’s Day. Absent from the calendar are some designers who have been active supporters of the men’s shows since they were launched four years ago, including Todd Snyder, Robert Geller, Ovadia New York, Carlos Campos and Bode.
Instead, the calendar kicks off on June 3 with Agentry’s presentations of small and emerging designers only. The following day, N.Hoolywood will show at 6 p.m., followed by Frere at 7 p.m. The final day on June 5 will see presentations from Hecho, Freemans Sporting Club, Untitled Collective, Dyne and Linder, as well as shows from Private Policy, NIHL and Grungy Gentleman.
The reasons for the lack of participation are several. First, this marks the first time the men’s shows have moved from July to June to coincide with women’s resort. That timing is early for a lot of brands since the men’s market in New York is generally in mid- to

2019 CFDA Fashion Awards to Honor Barbie With Board of Directors’ Tribute Award

Barbie, the number-one fashion doll in the world, can add another notch to her skinny-waisted belt.
The doll, which celebrated its 60th birthday this year, will receive the Board of Directors’ Tribute award at the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards. She is joining such past honorees as First Lady Michelle Obama, Tom Ford, Gloria Steinem, Janelle Monáe, Cecile Richards and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
Barbie has collaborated with more than 75 designers and influencers, including Gigi Hadid and Jeremy Scott for Moschino. The brand’s first designer partnership was with Oscar de la Renta in 1985. Barbie also collaborated with Bob Mackie, who will be awarded the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s ceremony, on a collector doll in 1990.
Vera Wang, Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Sui, Zac Posen, Badgley Mischka and Stephen Burrows are among the CFDA members who have created special dolls with Barbie.
“Barbie has had such wide influence on American fashion and culture,” said Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the CFDA. “Her story personally resonates with so many CFDA members that the board of directors decided to honor her with the special tribute.”
Richard Dickson, president and chief operating officer of Mattel, said, “It is a tremendous honor for

CFDA Fashion Awards Tap Hasan Minhaj and Jessica Williams as Presenters

Hasan Minhaj and Jessica Williams will be the presenters at the 2019 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3.
Minhaj and Williams will present the Womenswear, Menswear, Accessory, and Emerging Designer of the Year nominee categories.
Instead of a traditional host format, the CFDA Fashion Awards will showcase several creative voices in the fashion and entertainment industries to spotlight this year’s honorees and nominees.
“Hasan and Jessica both have incredibly popular shows that tap into the current state of culture,” said Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the CFDA. “We’re excited to have them on stage and look forward to celebrating the best of American fashion.”
Minhaj is the host and creator of the weekly comedy show, “Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj” that premiered on Netflix last October. The series, which has won a 2019 Peabody Award, explores the modern cultural and political landscape.

China National Garment Association To Organize Sino-Italian Fashion Summit

SILK ROAD: Reinforcing the relationship between the Italian and Chinese fashion industries and developing new strategies is the goal of the 2019 Sino-Italian Fashion Summit, which will run from June 24 to 26 in Hangzhou, an important industrial hub located half an hour from Shanghai.
The summit, which will include the participation of major Italian institutions, as well as designers and managers from important fashion houses, is organized by the China National Garment Association, a Chinese government association for the fashion industry.
The summit, which is patronized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will offer a clear picture of the Chinese fashion sector and will put the focus on the evolution of the country’s customers seeking high-end Made in Italy products.
“In the last decade, the Chinese market dramatically changed. Ten years ago, many international luxury players were registering a double-digit growth in China by leveraging only on the strength of the brand and on the huge dimension of the market,” said Francesco Fiordelli, official representative for the relationships between the China National Garment Association and Italy. “The market we are facing is more and more populated by a new middle class, mature and structured, with spending habits more precise and completely

Pratt Students Help Honor Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond at Annual Fashion Show

NEW YORK — Pratt showcased the work of 17 designers Thursday night at Spring Studios, and honored Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond with the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award.
In an interview Friday, Moss said he hoped students would remember that “the process is supposed to be long and intense, and if they stay the course they will eventually reach the goal and the purpose that was assigned to them by the universe. As artists, we go through the ebbs and flows and sometimes we don’t survive them. I just want them to know that at some point it does get better.”
Jean-Raymond received the award from his mentor Dapper Dan, who can appreciate that sentiment. Over the past four years, the two men have had many conversations and “Sunday talks,” Jean-Raymond said, adding that Dan has always been someone who he could count on pre-Gucci. “We navigated through different fashion industries, but at the end, we ended up in the same place,” Jean-Raymond said.
In addition to researching his next collection for his show in September, the designer said he is working on a signature shoe for Reebok. With his contract with Reebok scheduled to run out this year, the designer said he is

Agentry to Open New York Fashion Week: Men’s Again

Agentry PR is pivoting.
The organizer of New York Men’s Day, a showcase for emerging designers, will once again open the men’s spring calendar, working in tandem with the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
The CFDA shifted the men’s dates to June 3 to 5 this season to coincide with the women’s resort calendar. This means the New York-based men’s shows will take place ahead of the men’s shows in London, Florence, Milan and Paris.
Agentry had considered sticking with the former July dates to give the designers more time to prepare their collections and align with the New York men’s trade shows, but opted to stick with CFDA instead.
But there are other changes: New York Men’s Day will now be held at Daylight Studios & Location 05, next to the newly opened Hudson Yards complex on the West Side of Manhattan. For the past few seasons, the shows had been held at Dune Studios in the financial district.
New York Men’s Day will feature presentations from nine designers, down from 12 in prior iterations. Five will be held over a two-hour period in the morning and four in the afternoon.
But the event will also feature an All Stars Showcase where previous Men’s

From Fashion Icon to Designer: A Timeline of Rihanna’s Fashion Career Through the Years

It’s official: Rihanna and LVMH are going into the fashion business together, launching a luxury label comprising accessories, clothing and leather goods. Rihanna has already dominated in the makeup, athleisure and lingerie categories. We take a look back at her career in fashion:
2011: Armani Jeans and Underwear
For one of her first forays into fashion, Rihanna teamed up with Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans to create a capsule collection of T-shirts, biker jackets, denim and lingerie. She also fronted the fall 2011 ad campaigns for both lines.
2013: River Island
Rihanna presented her first women’s collection for the British high-street retailer, collaborating with American designer Adam Selman. “Launching at London Fashion Week is a dream come true for me,” the singer told WWD about her debut runway show.
2014: Puma Taps Rihanna as Creative Director
German sporting goods firm Puma signed the singer as brand ambassador, campaign star and women’s creative director. Rihanna’s first shoe, the Puma Creeper style, sold out in three hours. She went on to design four ready-to-wear collections.
2015: Stance Socks
Rihanna stepped into the socks business with Stance, becoming the brand’s contributing creative director as part of a three-year deal.

Fashion Group International Names James D’Adamo Chairman of the Board

GOING UP: Two months after the death of the Fashion Group International’s longtime leader Margaret Hayes, the organization has tapped James D’Adamo as chairman of the board.
D’Adamo, who lives in New York and was raised in Canada, continues to serve as group advertising director at Hearst, a post he has held for 14 years. He is not a newcomer to FGI, having first met the late Hayes at the group’s environment summit in 1990. D’Adamo has served on FGI’s board since 2009 and he has been a member of the organization since 2001. Before her death in late February, Hayes, FGI’s former president and chief executive officer, championed D’Adamo to succeed her as chairman, according to a spokeswoman for FGI.
D’Adamo takes over responsibilities handled by Donald Loftus. FGI’s veteran director, who had a distinguished career in retail and the cosmetics industry and retired from that sector to pursue his first passion as a playwright, librettist and lyricist. He will retain the title of chairman emeritus for FGI.
D’Adamo’s fashion and publishing ties will no doubt work to his advantage with his new gig at FGI. “Margaret took FGI to great heights and gave her heart and soul to the organization. We are

Meghan Markle’s Maternity Style: A Study of the Duchess of Sussex’s Pregnancy Fashion

Since announcing her pregnancy in October, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has parlayed her new royal style into regal maternity style. From royal tours in Australia and Fiji — and most recently Morocco — the Duchess has evolved her look wearing both American and Canadian designers, as well as British fashion brands throughout her pregnancy.
Kicking off her pregnancy with a tour of Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and Tonga with Prince Harry in November 2018, the world — not to mention social media, which has birthed a slew of fan accounts dedicated to all-things Meghan style — tuned in to see how the Duchess of Sussex would dress her burgeoning baby bump. The world tour saw Markle opting for classic pieces, like a Martin Grant beige trenchcoat and knee-length A-line dresses from brands like Club Monaco, Karen Gee and Brandon Maxwell.

Markle has stayed on the simpler side when it comes to her style, choosing pattern-less frocks primarily in neutrals and blue tones. The Duchess has experimented with more subdued prints, like a green and white striped Martin Grant dress in Australia and a red and purple

Dolly Parton Signs Global Licensing Deal With IMG to Develop Fashion, Accessories and Home

HELLO DOLLY: Considering the vastness of Dolly Parton’s business ventures, the fact that IMG is now her first exclusive global licensing representative is an eye-opener.
The eight-time Grammy winner, who has been a client in North America of IMG’s partner company WME since last year, plans to delve into fashion, jewelry, accessories and home goods through the new deal. The multiyear pact is set up to help the country music star develop a lifestyle brand. But the truth is, she already is that and more. Gucci’s Alessandro Michele designed a sleeveless jean jacket emblazoned with her name and image on the back for the luxury label’s spring 2019 collection.
Aside from knowing how to make a statement on stage — wigs, sequins, bright colors and body-accentuating silhouettes — Parton also grasps what it takes to execute those ensembles. She and her creative director and wardrobe designer Steve Summers have reportedly been known to create about 300 outfits each year — down to every shoe and accessories.
Beyond her 1.8 million Instagram followers, Parton presents to IMG a built-in fan base. Five years ago, she passed the 100-million mark for records sold, and Parton continues to churn out country music, books and all kinds

Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli to Discuss Fashion With Alina Cho at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

MET PLANS ROMAN HOLIDAY: For many on the global fashion stage, Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli is the man of the hour — or at least among the leading five intriguing people.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art plans to help illuminate that wattage by welcoming Piccioli for a conversation with Alina Cho on May 21. Six hundred people will be able to buy tickets to listen in to what he has to say at “The Atelier With Alina Cho.” Fashion, of course, will be central to the discussion, more specifically its narrative power, and Piccioli’s humanistic approach to creativity and his ability to influence areas beyond the fashion industry. To that end, he was ranked on Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” list for 2019. Future plans will also be part of the discussion with Cho at The Met.
Posting an image of himself with his date Naomi Campbell on the April 25 black-tie occasion, Piccioli wrote of the honor, “Being nominated, as a designer, reminds me that I can say something through my choices and I will, now more than ever.

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

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

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

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

The North Face Finds Its Inner Fashion

Tim Bantle, global general manager of The North Face, described the brand’s transformation from a collection of technical clothing and gear for serious explorers to a label that’s in-demand in the fashion world and collaborating with Supreme, Junya Watanabe and Sacai.
Bantle began by showing The North Face rock, which appears on all of its products, “at the end of Yosemite Valley, there’s this beautiful, monolithic rock,” he said. “It captures our historical essence.”
Bantle is a climber who spent 12 years at Patagonia, and prior to that, worked in guiding and retail. Showing a photo of a frozen tundra, he said, “This is where the most elite climbers in the world go — to the middle of Antarctica to do new climbs.”
Likening The North Face to NASA, but for earthbound exploration, Bantle said, “We enable people to go there and do that. It’s given rise to our most important and iconic products. Those products are part of an Expedition System launched in the Nineties.…We developed these products basically to climb Mount Everest.
“These products basically have a place in our archive and have a cult following around the world,” Bantle added. “The most important iconic products include the Denali jacket Base Camp

Devastating Notre Dame Cathedral Fire Rocks Fashion World

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

Italian Textile and Fashion Industry Expects Only 1.5% Growth in First Half

MILAN — The Italian textile and fashion industry is expected to grow, but at a moderate pace.
According to projections released by industry association Sistema Moda Italia’s president Marino Vago on Wednesday, revenues for the sector are expected to gain only 1.5 percent in the first six months of the year compared to the same period in 2018. In particular, the textile area is forecast to grow 1.1 percent and the fashion division 1.9 percent.
In the January-June 2019 period, export will still be the industry’s driving force but will grow at a slower pace, gaining 1.8 percent compared to the 2.6 percent increase registered in the same period in 2018. Overall, the trade balance is expected to be up 2.5 percent.
Among the elements influencing the figures, Vago mentioned the European elections and a potential recession of the area’s economy, Brexit and the commercial situation between the U.S. and China.
The executive urged to keep a cautious approach given these challenges, which might interrupt the positive momentum the industry experienced in 2018.
Preliminary 2018 data released by the association showed that last year, sales were up 2.1 percent to 55.2 billion euros, with textile and fashion companies increasing at a different pace and reporting

Grailed Founder on Future of the Men’s Fashion ‘Movement’

Men’s fashion has changed a lot in the past decade, and Arun Gupta sees it changing still.
Led by a young male consumer obsessed with streetwear, a new interest in fashion has led the popular success of sites like Grailed, which Gupta founded in 2013 as a marketplace and community platform for “super enthusiasts,” like himself. But already the culture is moving beyond streetwear.
“The men’s clothing movement, it being acceptable for men to care more about the clothes they wear, has been building for the past 10 years,” Gupta said. “But streetwear is the last phase of it.”
Already on Grailed, he said the inventory is about evenly split between streetwear and fashion, possibly a sign that the realm is cooling off a bit. And then there’s the split between the two types of fashion consumers Gupta is seeing.
“One is the consumer who buys to wear it, then there’s the consumer buying to flip it,” Gupta said. “It’s very prevalent in sneakers and now very prevalent in streetwear and it’s pretty unique to the ecosystem.”
He compared the level of resale with a brand like Celine, where new items have been slow to appear on Grailed and a brand like Supreme, which shows

The conversation, which took place at the third annual winter luncheon of the Couture Council of The Museum at FIT, was held at Avra Madison Estiatorio and sponsored by Saks.
By way of introduction, Kathy Reilly, luncheon chair, said Patel has driven the transformation of Saks since 2015, with responsibility for trend forecasting, spotting emerging designers and honing the seasonal fashion message.
Steele then kicked off the discussion, asking Patel to describe her primary day-to-day responsibilities and strategic point of view.
Patel, who oversees men’s, women’s, accessories, jewelry and beauty, said, “When we look at fashion, there’s a lot of storytelling that goes on. Our job and my responsibility is to be the translator and curator. Taking what we’re seeing on the runways in London, New York, Milan and Paris, and making sure that that vision and the trend direction is translated for the Saks customer to experience.”

They will also host a series of events with key industry partners, WWD has learned. An announcement is expected today.
The project is part of the BFC’s China partnership strategy, which was revealed in September and aims to help British designer businesses access the Chinese market. The organization is supporting talent through networking, content and access partnerships and business support.

Brands Roksanda and Peter Pilotto will launch a stand-alone showroom within Ontimeshow from March 28 to 31, with support from the Department for International Trade. The trip will help the brands’ business development in the market and the designers will have the opportunity to meet with key retailers, media, stylists, opinion leaders, creative industry influencers and high-net-worth individuals from the region.
“China has always been an important part of our strategy,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of the BFC. “We are delighted to collaborate with Ontimeshow to bring two hero brands of London Fashion Week to Shanghai. We hope this is only the

Cottweiler Becomes First British Brand to Show at Seoul Fashion Week 

LONDON — The British Fashion Council is furthering its partnership with Seoul Fashion Week in support of emerging talent, with men’s wear label Cottweiler the first to benefit from the special relationship.
Cottweiler, the streetwear brand that won the 2016-17 International Woolmark Prize for men’s wear, will be the first British name to be sponsored at Seoul Fashion Week in March. The brand will restage its fall 2019 show alongside those of South Korean designers.
“We are very grateful to be given the opportunity by the BFC and Seoul Fashion Week to present our work to a wider audience and connect to our already growing fan base in South Korea,” said designers Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell of Cottweiler. “This will be our first venture outside of London Fashion Week and for it to be in a city that embraces cutting-edge style like no other is an exciting prospect.”
The BFC-Seoul partnership aims to support emerging British and South Korean talent through sponsorships and to provide them with the opportunity to showcase directly to buyers and media.
“We are thrilled to be able to host Cottweiler in Seoul and to build on our partnership with the British Fashion Council,” said Jung Kuho, executive director of

Chainmail Is a Trend Happening at Paris Fashion Week

As many stay tuned to Paris Fashion Week, an unlikely fashion trend has popped up among the Parisian street-style set: chainmail.
The 12th-century armor, originally a mesh made up of metal rings to protect the head and body, has been reimagined by many Paris showgoers, who are wearing the style in silver, gold and black as clothing, headwear and handbags.
Giving a nod to the medieval chainmail style, two showgoers were seen wearing the style as headwear, one with a black chain-link headpiece worn over a metallic silver headscarf and another wearing a silver chain-link headpiece with a matching handbag.

Others went with more of a disco theme. Designer Michelle Elie wore a silver metallic sequined dress with a matching bag, while another paired a metallic gold chain-link top with a matching gold sequined skirt.

Over the decades, the style has been a runway staple, most notably by Paco Rabanne, who made it his signature style in the Sixties. Most recently, the look was interpreted for fall by designers including Christian Siriano, who gave models ponytails tied together with links of chainmail; Area, which accented clothing with colorful

Rokh’s Paris Fashion Week Debut Signals Ambitious Future

LONDON — When he founded Rokh in 2016, London-based designer Rok Hwang wanted to experiment with the construction of garments and propose new silhouettes.
While his fashion might be cool and of-the-moment — think oversize shirts with extra-large cuffs, deconstructed trench coats and fluid dresses — Hwang has chosen to take the more traditional, and at times more challenging, route to brand-building. He offers ready-to-wear and handbags, he is committed to a wholesale strategy and to building long-term relationships with luxury European manufacturers.
He favors traditional show formats, too, which is why he’s making his runway debut at Paris Fashion Week, having amassed a growing network of 120 retail partners, including Net-a-porter. (See review this page.)
“It’s been a personal dream to show in Paris. I also wanted to give the option to the brand to have international exposure and to pass on the message that we are now more established,” Hwang said in an interview.
In an interview last week, he was unequivocal about his ambition to build a full-fledged design house. He’s set the bar high, having cut his teeth at the likes of Celine, Louis Vuitton and Chloé. He credits his time at Celine under Phoebe Philo as a particular influence.

Retailers Weigh In on the Pros and Cons of Men’s Fashion Week

Men’s wear retailers had a choice to make this week: stay in New York for the men’s runway shows or jump a flight to Las Vegas for the trade shows.
As reported, both events overlap this season; an unfortunate shift in dates by Project to a week earlier forced merchants and vendors to choose between the two.
NYFW: Men’s will run Feb. 4 to 6 in New York City — the start of the larger 10-day New York Fashion Week — while Project, Liberty Fairs and Agenda will run Feb. 5 to 7 in Las Vegas.
The men’s part of the show calendar has had trouble gaining traction since it was introduced by the Council of Fashion Designers of America four years ago. Most of the marquee designers have either opted for dual-gender shows — Tom Ford, Michael Kors and John Elliott among them — or showed in Europe, such as Ralph Lauren and Thom Browne. Other men’s designers have opted out of showing in New York altogether including Billy Reid, Perry Ellis and Carlos Campos.
With some exceptions — Joseph Abboud, Todd Snyder, Robert Geller and Ovadia & Sons — the men’s-specific days on the calendar are full of little-known designer names, many of

China Fashion Gala to Honor Jason Wu With Fashion Leadership Award

Supporters of this year’s China Fashion Gala will get an early start on celebrating Jason Wu at a private event tonight.
Wu will be honored with the Fashion Leadership award at the May 1 dinner at The Plaza Hotel. He is expected at tonight’s private warm-up event, which is being hosted by Yue-Sai Kan, the founder and chairwoman of Yue-Sai Kan China Beauty Charity Fund. She is also hosting the China Fashion Gala and her fund is the event’s copresenter, along with the China Institute.
In addition to recognizing individuals who have helped to position China at the forefront at the global fashion scene, the annual gathering is designed to draw attention to Chinese design and to help propel emerging Chinese talent to the international stage. Wu will plan a fashion show and the hip-hop artist VaVa, who is known as ”China’s Queen of Rap,” will perform for guests at the seated dinner.
Wu’s husband Gustavo Rangel, architect Chien Chung “Didi” Pei, Google’s Abigail Posner and the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Valerie Steele are expected to help toast Wu tonight at the event.

Deborah Lyons Kicks Off London Fashion Week With Jazz Night

COMING HOME: Deborah Lyons loves keeping her audience entertained.
For the debut of her new fall 2019 collection, she took over London’s Burlington Arcade on the eve of London Fashion Week — which also happened to be Valentine’s Day — dressed it up with myriad red roses and invited guests and their loved ones for a jazz night.
There were drinks, chocolate treats and a live jazz performance, with the band and singers sporting Lyons’ new fall 2019 pieces, which channeled a tougher, more confident mood, with a darker color palette and a strong focus on the brand’s signature silhouettes.
Some of the highlights included plaid tailored blazers and matching slim pants, body-hugging jumpsuits and a dramatic maxidress appliquéd with red roses all over.
This was the first time Lyons showed on home turf, after taking her show on the road and hosting her debut presentation aboard a Eurostar carriage last September.
“We wanted to do something more intimate and local this time, that brought together our immediate community. Also it’s a nice way to lead into London Fashion Week,” Lyons said.
Her aim with choosing off-schedule slots and alternative presentation formats remains the same: Cutting through the fashion week noise and getting the right audience

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

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

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

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

Five Minutes With Zen-like Fashion Week Rookie Nathalie Kelley

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

EXCLUSIVE: Heron Preston on Opening Paris Men’s Fashion Week

PARIS — “Streetwear on the runways of Paris has always been that vision that I’ve shared with my friends, the ultimate opportunity to present some new fresh ideas in a city and platform that we have always looked up to,” said Heron Preston, who today at the Palais de Tokyo will present the first runway show of his namesake label, as part of the official calendar of Paris Men’s Fashion Week.
Call him a quick learner. Preston, who was “raised” by the skate culture in San Francisco where he grew up, and who first started making noise in 2012 with his art-project bootleg spins on the Givenchy Rottweiler T-shirt, said that it was only around four years ago, when he started working with Kanye West, that he was introduced to the world of Paris fashion.
A former art director for West, Preston — who’s considered a post-Internet Renaissance man — worked at Nike and was also a part of the Been Trill art and DJ collective with Virgil Abloh, Justin Saunders and Matthew Williams.

MM6 Maison Margiela to Show During Milan Fashion Week

MILAN ON THE MIND: MM6 Maison Margiela, the contemporary line of Maison Margiela, is heading to Italy.
For the first time since its launch in 1997, the label will present its new collection in Milan with an event on Feb. 20 during Milan Fashion Week.
“MM6 will take the street again in a two-hours presentation format reflecting the inclusivity spirit of the brand: one creative concept will spread through the whole collection and will take over the venue in an immersive experience,” the brand said in a statement on Tuesday.
The planned show follows the opening of the first MM6 Maison Margiela boutique in Milan’s Porta Nuova district last February. It marks the latest move for the collection, which was shown in London since the spring 2016 season, and in New York and Paris before that.
Last September, the label’s design collective swapped its usual presentation format for a runway show, which saw models parade around a dimly lit Covent Garden warehouse, complete with broken chandeliers, cracked mirrors and graffiti across the walls.

Fashion to Fintech, OnApproval Makes Luxury Shopping Less Cryptic

From fashion to fintech, American fashion designer Alvin Valley partners with HauteLook cofounder Carlota Espinosa and Oracle-acquired InstantService.com founder Damion Hankejh to integrate OnApproval — the “first luxury payment service system” with Uphold in early January.
Having launched in 2015, Uphold serves more than 184 countries to deliver 30-plus currency types including traditional forms and cryptocurrency. Since its launch, it has powered more than $ 4 billion in U.S. transactions while offering “frictionless foreign exchange for merchants and members around the world.”
The partnership anticipates the formal launch of OnApproval, and it allows its members to “pull goods before paying — providing an in-store shopping experience at home” — by partnering as the alpha merchant with Uphold, the “Internet bank of money,” to onboard 1 million OnApproval members.
According to Hankejh, e-commerce is “ripe for remodeling.” In a separate interview with WWD, Espinosa offered that OnApproval “drives loyalty by reducing payment friction and eliminating the “shopping cart” paradigm, triggering in-store behavior in the home wrapped in personalized customer experience.”
Sometimes noted as the “king of pants” for his extensive design reign in the product category, Valley is in good company with his fellow cofounders of OnApproval. Espinosa is cofounder and vice president of the Nordstrom-acquired HauteLook and Hankejh is a chief

Tolu Coker Awarded Fashion Scout’s Merit Award

GOLDEN TICKET: London-based designer Tolu Coker has been awarded Fashion Scout’s Merit Award. Coker will be granted 20,000 pounds, which will go toward expanding her business, and a fully sponsored runway show under the Fashion Scout program taking place during London Fashion Week, which runs from Feb. 14 to 19.
Previous winners of the award include Phoebe English, David Koma, Katie Roberts-Wood of Roberts|Wood and Eudon Choi.
“It came as a surprise to hear that I’ve won but also a challenge preparing for a debut show because I’m a one-woman band. It’s such an honor and it’s come at such an important time because storytelling is such an integral part of my brand,” the designer said.
Coker’s label champions sustainability — she is known for using upcycled denim, leather and recycled plastic scraps in her collection, which features bold embroidery and textures.
She has already racked up a roster of high-profile clients, with the likes of Rihanna, Demi Lovato and Emili Sandé wearing her pieces.
“Tolu’s brand was an easy decision for the judging panel to award Merit to, due to her originality and exciting concept of implementing past generations and dual cultures into her work,” said Martyn Roberts, founder and creative director of Fashion Scout.

Critic’s Choice Awards Fashion Review: Brighter Times Ahead

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

Will New York Fashion Shows Ultimately Land at The Shed?

So when will New York Fashion Week set up its fashion shows at the Shed, which opens April 5?
For years, reports have been circulating that the fashion shows would take place at The Shed once it was completed. The Shed revealed Wednesday that the new nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to commissioning, developing and presenting original works of art, across all disciplines for all audiences, will have its opening season starting April 5. The Shed looks to present world premiere works in the performing arts, visual arts and popular culture.
“We have built a home where established and emerging artists working in all disciplines can create new work in ways that we cannot even imagine,” said Alex Poots, artistic director and chief executive officer of The Shed.

Fashion Brands’ Collaborative Efforts With Soccer Teams: Is It Worth It to Play?

MILAN — It’s often said that one’s favorite soccer team is forever. Which might be true for the 736 million fans that soccer has reportedly attracted in 2017 across 18 surveyed markets, according to a study released by American measurement and data analytics company Nielsen.
The number translates into a big opportunity for companies across different categories and especially for fashion brands supplying off-the-field uniforms and developing co-branded capsule collections, to bank on soccer’s global relevance and possibly tap into new customers.
For instance, Thom Browne joined the arena last year by crafting for the first time the off-the-field tailored and formalwear uniforms of FC Barcelona with a deal covering the next three years, while Hugo Boss has renewed its partnership with the AS Roma, FC Bayern, Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain teams.

Some remain skeptical. “As a marketing tool, I’m uncertain about the return on investment. First of all, there’s a target issue: Are fans of soccer teams target customers for these brands?” wondered Alessandro Maria Ferreri, chief executive officer of The Style Gate consultancy firm. He noted that brands are often putting a lot of money and efforts

What to Watch: New York Fashion Week: Men’s Latest Challenges

New York Fashion Week: Men’s has had trouble gaining a foothold since it was launched by the Council of Fashion Designers of America four years ago. The upcoming fall shows — slated for Feb. 4 to 6 — are facing even bigger challenges. First, an unexpected one-time shift in dates by the trade shows in Las Vegas means that retailers and editors who usually attend both will have to make a choice or abbreviate one or both of the events. Project, Liberty Fairs and Agenda will be held Feb. 5 to 7.
On top of that, many of fashion’s biggest and buzziest names have opted to either hold dual-gender shows or have decamped to other cities. Tom Ford will again hold a men’s and women’s show, as he has in past seasons, at 8 p.m. on Feb. 6, officially ending the men’s shows. The women’s shows kick off with Ralph Lauren on Feb. 7 at 10 a.m.
Also opting for dual-gender shows later in the week are Palm Angels — which is making its New York debut — on Feb. 8; John Elliott on Feb. 9; Opening Ceremony on Feb. 10, and Michael Kors on the final day, Feb. 13.

London Fashion Week Men’s Fall 2019: What to See, Eat and Where to Shop

LONDON — The first weekend in January is never an easy one, but London has the antidote, with a lineup of streetwear and luxury stores and restaurants serving everything from classic British to Taiwanese food, all of which will be open during London Fashion Week Men’s.

London store End. 
Peter Cook

END OF THE LINE: British property group Shaftesbury has expanded its retail portfolio, opening the first London outpost for the online men’s wear store, End. Occupying 9,000 square feet on the corner of Broadwick and Marshall Streets, the two-story glass-fronted space offers a range of collections from labels including Off-White, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Nike and Adidas Consortiums. The store, which already has units in Newcastle, England, and Glasgow, Scotland, features modern furnishings such as marble staircases and glass showcases.
End is part of a strategy by Shaftesbury to position Soho as a go-to destination for emerging brands. The company has been offering reasonable rents in the neighborhood, which is a few minutes’ walk from Oxford and Regent Streets. Shaftesbury has also helped to install Supreme, Palace, Carhartt and Dukes Cupboard, a multibrand retailer, in the neighborhood. Samantha Bain-Mollison, head of retail at Shaftesbury, has been driving the strategy. She describes End as “influential, with a renowned selection of directional and globally sourced men’s wear.” — Hannah Connolly

What to Watch: Royal, Political Influencers Spark Criticism, Affect Fashion With Photo-ops

Like them, love them or despise them, political and royal influencers churn up the Internet nearly instantaneously with every public outing.
Whether stepping out for a diplomatic gala dinner, a schoolyard visit with wide-eyed students or for a hardhat-worthy ribbon cutting ceremony, the powers-that-be dress accordingly, knowing their choices will send sales skyrocketing. Their personal fashion loyalties vary — Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel favors pantsuits, beleaguered British Prime Minister Theresa May prefers skirt suits, France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron is all about Louis Vuitton and U.S. First Lady Melania Trump is nonpartisan in terms of designers.
As a sign of their global reach, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, topped Google’s 10 most-searched people list last year. For her first official tour, with Prince Harry last fall, to Australia, the American-born royal packed plenty of options for the 16-day trip. Occasionally changing twice in one day, the former “Suits” actress wore an assortment of Australian labels, as well as Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, Roksanda Ilincic, Stuart Weitzman, Manolo Blahnik, Gucci and Birks.
Before last spring’s royal wedding, it was estimated that the net present value to brands that Markle wears was 150 million pounds, or $ 212.1 million, according to David Haigh,

Christopher Bailey, Twiggy Among Fashion Names in Queen’s New Year Honors List

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Queen Elizabeth II has handed honors to a clutch of names in the arts and fashion worlds as part of her New Year’s Honors List 2019. Honorees will receive their awards at Buckingham Palace at various times over the next few months.
Christopher Bailey is among this year’s honorees.

Australian Fashion Foundation Announces 2019 Winners

SYDNEY – Two recent graduates of Melbourne’s RMIT University are the winners of the Australian Fashion Foundation’s 2019 scholarship awards.
Helena Dong and Amanda Nichols will each receive a financial grant of 20,000 Australian dollars and assistance securing a six-month internship at a global fashion house headquartered in Europe or the U.S.
The judging panel included designer Nicky Zimmermann, stylist Brana Wolf, Vogue Australia editor in chief Edwina McCann, Harper’s Bazaar Australia editor in chief Eugenie Kelly and consultant David Bush.
Dong had submitted her interdisciplinary graduate collection, comprised of a capsule collection of traditional wool suiting and shirting, together with an online digital game and a performance piece.
Master’s graduate Nichols – who, at 35, is considerably older than the usual AUSFF applicants – is a professional costumer who has worked with film duo Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin for 14 years. “It [the award] is really important for me, because it means that I’m able to transition out of costumes into fashion” she said.
The foundation was launched in 2009 by two New York-based Australians – publicist Malcolm Carfrae and VFiles founder Julie Anne Quay – to help young Australian fashion creators gain international experience.

Gucci to Host Event During January’s Fashion Week in Milan

MILAN — Gucci will cap off the upcoming Men’s Fashion Week in January with a performance event here.
As Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana president Carlo Capasa revealed during a press conference on Wednesday presenting the schedule of the city’s upcoming fashion week, the fashion label — which will return to Milan in February with a coed show after it decamped to Paris last September for one season — will host the “Motus presents MDLSX with Silvia Calderoni” performance event at its Gucci hub headquarters on Jan. 14. The performance, which will be produced by independent theater company Motus and directed by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, will blend a monologue by Calderoni and video projections exploring the notion of gender identity in a play inspired by the 2003 novel “Middlesex” by American writer Jeffrey Eugenides. Capasa dubbed the event “not to be missed,” noting how important it is for Gucci to be part of the official schedule.
Men’s Fashion Week will run Jan. 11 to 14 and while, as reported, the Giorgio Armani brand is the latest to join the likes of Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Salvatore Ferragamo to skip the January shows to host a coed runway event in February, Emporio Armani

Swarovski, British Fashion Council Salute Vivienne Westwood at Fashion Awards in London

VIVA VIVIENNE: The British Fashion Council is saluting Vivienne Westwood for her longstanding efforts to get people to buy less and to think about the environment more.
At the Fashion Awards on Dec. 10, the BFC will hand Westwood the Swarovski Award for Positive Change, acknowledging her continued work to shift consumer attitudes and spearhead environmental awareness through her work in the fashion industry.
“Dame Vivienne Westwood will be recognized for being a campaigner for change throughout her career.

Parley for the Oceans to Be Honored for Innovation at Fashion Awards in London

THE INNOVATOR: Parley for the Oceans’ environmental mission will be honored by the British Fashion Council at this year’s Fashion Awards.
Cyrill Gutsch, the organization’s founder, is set to receive the Special Recognition Award for Innovation, a new accolade added to the award ceremony’s lineup last year and first received by Stella McCartney.
The BFC said that it wants to honor the company’s effort to “highlight the devastating effects of plastic on our environment” and to “turn a global problem into an opportunity” by spearheading creative collaborations that look at new ways of designing and consuming products.
Adidas has been one of Parley’s most recognized collaborators since 2015. The two have produced shoes made of yarns and filaments recycled from ocean waste, as well as full apparel collections for Adidas Outdoor, produced using bottles that were turned into thread.
The company has also worked with Stella McCartney on a footwear capsule last year and partnered with Porter magazine and model Anja Rubik to create an issue that raised awareness on marine pollution.
Other honorees at the awards include Miuccia Prada, who is set to receive the Outstanding Achievement Award.

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

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

Jeanine Ballone Joins Fashion 4 Development to Champion Sustainability

After 12 years at VF Corp., Jeanine Ballone has exited the company as vice president of Innovation Next at PVH Corp.
Ballone has signed up with Fashion 4 Development which champions sustainability among apparel companies and brands. As managing director of F4D Solutions, she will help companies evaluate their production and supply chains, change their practices, provide information and other resources.
Just back from speaking about sustainability at last week’s United Nations Web Summit in Geneva, Ballone said F4D is also looking into speaking at the Global Fashion Agenda and next year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. In an interview with F4D founder Evie Evangelou Tuesday, Ballone said she feels her efforts will be more effective working with numerous companies as opposed to being based in-house at one. She first connected with Evangelou about five or six years ago. That’s also around the time she started the Zero to Hero Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls around the world.
Ballone said sustainability shouldn’t boil down to just wearing recycled clothes, but “there is a need to create new products with interesting resources and technology to redefine the category. With the ‘take-wear-dump’ formula, there is only so

South African Fashion on Show at Zeitz MOCAA

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