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

The Top Planners to Organize Yourself and Your Life for the Coming Year

I fully admit it, I am a planner addict. I have tried just about everyone out there, I will change one part way through the year because I find one that will better meet my needs, or I feel like my current one if getting too cluttered. I will never give up my physical planner for an electric one. I am tactile, I am visual, and I like being able to map out upcoming events and due dates on paper. I also like something that I can truly personalize to not only meet my needs, but to keep my inspired. So although I run through planners like water, there are a number that I have come across that I really like, should meet your needs, and I would go back to without hesitation.

1) Let’s start with my current obsession, the Passion planner ($ 25-$ 35). This is not a mere planner, this is a true book of planning, inspiration, goal setting, with areas for weekly focus, good things that happened that week, personal and professional goals, and an area called the “space of infinite possibility.” I LOVE this planner and could actually see myself building upon it and making it the whole year with it, which says more than I can express. This one just taps into my creativity and truly inspires me to motivate me and keep me going.

2) Erin Condren does the LifePlanner (starts at $ 55 and quickly goes up from there). While this is an investment, you pick your cover, you can personalize it, and you can choose the ring and cord color, whether you want your weeks vertical or horizontal, and has wonderful clip in and add-ons available. You can truly personalize this to meet most people’s needs.

3) Gallery Leather has regular year and mid-year planners that cover 18 months. While they have a professional planner, I actually suggest anyone getting the family planner. It has all the professional areas that you could ever want, plus it covers important areas like medical information, utilities, birthdays, credit cards, phone numbers, and lots of pages for extras, is very affordable ($ 30), and has a sleek design that fits almost any bag.

4) Draw Your Tomorrow Planner ($ 36) works well if you are looking for a straight to the point organizer. On top of that, there is also room to doodle, draw, inspire and entertain you. If you are visual, this is an amazing way to illustrate your goals and activities.

5) Adam Kurtz’s Unsolicited Advice Planner ($ 14) , is fun, funny, and practical. It is a very quirky planner that is off the beaten path. It serves if general purpose, but it keeps you laughing as you plug along. For the price, it seems well worth the investment.

6) Bando ($ 28 or $ 32) is a fantastic, fun and functional planner. I love it and was using it for a long time. It had everything I could need to organize and entertain me, great sections, sayings, stickers!!!a pocket for storage, monthly and weekly pages. It is tons of fun and has accessories that will have you exceptionally entertained and interested. The only drawback is the size. I literally has to get rid of a few of my bags, as it is very large, and would not fit them, however, I think the tradeoff was well worth it.

7) Modcloth is “Glam with a Plan ($ 22).” It is organization, gorgeous, has stickers!!!!, but still maintains a feeling of being a balance of fun and straightforward. Fashionable and functional, this is for anyone who wants that mix of beauty and high organizational value.

8) Kate Spade comes out with wonderful planners year after year, which I think keep getting better and better ($ 36). They are pretty and practical, have monthly and weekly sections, and an elastic band to hold everything in place. They have sections for notes, contacts, and laminated dividers. They manage to look good keep you super organized. They offer lots of great accessories and it is a very sturdy product.

9) Day Designer is a planner that is on a mission to get you organized and on your way to living with, “intentional, meaningful, and well-designed life.” They help you to set goals, and make plans to achieve them. They are cute,, practical, and help you develop great habits.

10) The Purposeful Planner is designed to be purposeful about all aspects of life. Something we can all appreciate about living with a purpose. There is no wasted time and energy with this planner, and you won’t regret the investment.

9 Simple Hacks That Will Help Organize That Mess You Call a Closet

It’s finally time to get your organizational act together and clear the clutter. Not only does having clothes strewn about everywhere look unsightly, it’s also incredibly inefficient because a) you’re not even really sure what you own, and b) even if you did know, you wouldn’t be able to access the clothing anyways. The 9 simple hacks below will transform your mess into a lean, mean, coordinated machine so you can actually wear what you’ve spent your hard-earned cash on.

1. Call your local plumber
What you need: PVC pipe and a pipe cutter/hand saw.
What it does: Creates a handy storage compartment for your watches, belts, suiting accessories, etc.

You can store the tubes of piping in a drawer, plastic container under your bed, in a box on your desk, etc. If you do indeed store ’em in a drawer or something with a cover, measure the height of the compartment and cut your pipe accordingly. Roll up your belts and ties, use them to hold watches, tie bars, and other assorted jewelry. You could even put one near your front door to act as a catchall for keys, change, etc.

2. Use a pegboard
What you need: A pegboard and pegboard hooks.
What it does: Creates a space to hang and store clothing, accessories, etc.

Install it on your bedroom wall and hang up tomorrow’s outfit so it’s ready to go the next morning. Use it to store jewelry and other small items (ties, scarves, etc.). A pegboard and a few hooks results in an invaluable space to hang, well, just about anything.

3. File your t-shirts
What you need: Hands.
What it does: Makes storing your t-shirts more efficient.

Instead of storing them in the traditional fashion, put your t-shirts in the drawer using a filing system. This allows you to fit more shirts and get a much better sense of what you own (so you don’t continuously wear the same six tees).

4. Drink up
What you need: An empty cardboard wine box.
What it does: The box that got you drunk becomes a place to store your shoes, ties, belts, accessories, etc.

A 12 bottle wine box will hold six pairs of shoes (one shoe per slot). You could also use it to store off-season items, ties, and belts. Keep it under your bed so everything stays out of the way.

5. Get your hanger game up
What you need: Identical hangers in different colors and/or closet organizers.
What it does: Helps sort your clothing by type, color, and occasion.

There are three routes you can take here. Either you can buy the same exact hanger in different colors to coordinate your clothing (i.e. shirts on blue hangers, pants on white), or you can use closet organizers to separate everything. But the ultimate step in clothing management is to utilize both techniques. For example, put all your shirts on blue hangers and use closet organizers to further separate them into work shirts, going out shirts, etc.

But, regardless of the route you choose, always sort your clothing by color to make everything more accessible and tidy.

The other 4 hacks to organize that closet of yours, are waiting at!

How to Organize a Wedding Day Seating Chart

When it’s time to organize your seating chart, I recommend you do the following: Run yourself a nice, warm, bath. Play some mellow music, sniff some lavender oil and do whatever you need to do to relax. Allow yourself no distractions.

Once you are out of the bath and dry, it’s time to tackle the chart. Here we go!

  • Step 1: Tie your hair back in a ponytail or a nice, tight bun, as this will help you refrain from ripping it the fuck out of your head.
  • Step 2: Grab one bottle of wine to get you through your side of the family’s tables, and another bottle to get you through his. (Your friends are easy — just put them near the bar and/or dance floor.) Crack open that first bottle and pour yourself a glass.
  • Step 3: Call your mother, and your in-laws, and have them explain again why Aunt Josie and Uncle Frank’s family can’t be seated within three tables of each other, and why cousin Jeremy needs to be kept at a safe distance from both the dance floor and the waitstaff.
  • Step 4: Crack open the second bottle of wine too early. To hell with it.
  • Step 5: Look over your list of those lovely and considerate individuals who have yet to RSVP. Construct a voodoo doll in their form. Insert a few pins to relieve your stress. Seek comfort in the fact that this quite possibly could be working.

Lather, rinse, repeat.
