Kimora Lee Simmons Buys Baby Phat, Plans for Relaunch

Kimora Lee Simmons Leissner has gotten her baby back.
The designer, former model and entrepreneur celebrated International Women’s Day on Friday by revealing that she had personally purchased the once red-hot streetwear brand Baby Phat and will relaunch the label later this year.
She declined to disclose the purchase price or the company from which it was purchased, only saying: “We had to hunt around to find it.”
Leissner was the creator of the women’s-skewed streetwear brand 20 years ago as an extension of the Phat Farm men’s label under her then-husband Russell Simmons’ Phat Fashions company.
Leissner felt at the time that women streetwear fans should have a vehicle and created Baby Phat to fit that bill. She served as its creative director from 2000 to 2010 and later added the president’s title as well.
In its heyday in the early Aughts, Baby Phat was one of Phat Fashions’ most profitable brands with a wide variety of product categories and sales in excess of $ 1 billion. It was worn by major celebrities and hosted elaborate fashion shows.
When Phat Fashion was sold to Kellwood in 2004, Leissner continued to serve as creative director of Baby Phat. A fragrance was launched with Coty in 2005 and

Chanel Plans Farewell Ceremony for Karl Lagerfeld

REMEMBERING KARL: Chanel is planning a farewell ceremony for Karl Lagerfeld following the designer’s death on Tuesday at the age of 85.
In a death notice in French daily newspaper Le Figaro on Thursday, the fashion house said Lagerfeld would be laid to rest “in a strictly private ceremony,” confirming what a spokeswoman for the Lagerfeld brand told WWD.
“A farewell ceremony will take place at a later date,” Chanel added. A spokeswoman for the brand said no additional details were available at this time. Lagerfeld’s final collection for Chanel will be shown in Paris on March 5, in what promises to be a highly emotional occasion.
The couturier always made clear that he did not want a public funeral after his own death, telling Numéro magazine in an interview last year that he preferred for his ashes to be scattered near those of his mother Elisabeth and those of his cat Choupette, should she pass away before him.

Threeasfour Plans Art-Infused Runway Show at the Guggenheim’s Theater

NEW YORK — An assortment of artistic touches will be center stage when Threeasfour returns to the runway Thursday night at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s theater. The last collection they showed in New York was spring 2017.
Adi Gil and Gabriel Asfour will be dedicating the show in memory of their friend Kate Spade. In 1997 working for Spade as creative director, Asfour helped to start the clothing component of her collection and their own brand’s upcoming one will be colorful as hers were. The designers collaborated with the artist Stanley Casselman, transforming his paintings into the fall collection, in order to highlight the collision of art, fashion and design. Supporters often refer to Threeasfour’s design as art, so Asfour said he and Gil decided “Why not do it as art? Instead of using fabric, we’re using paintings.” Victoria Bartlett will be styling the show, which is being choreographed by Maria Hassabi with performer Tyler Ashley serving as emcee. Sean Lennon, Maria Cornejo, Waris Ahluwalia and Arden Wohl are expected to be in the crowd of 280.
“Happy, friendly neighbors” with Threeasfour at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, N.J., Casselman often makes paintings that are 6 feet squares and painted on polyester screens that

La Prestic Ouiston Expands With Plans for Store in Paris

A NEW FLAME: Rounding out a globetrotting tour of pop-up stores, La Prestic Ouiston is opening its first boutique in the Saint Germain district of Paris and launching an e-commerce site at the start of next year.
Nearly a decade old, the upscale Parisian label best known for original prints and fluid silhouettes, has recently experienced a surge of interest abroad, where it is sold in places including Fivestory in New York, Ron Herman in Los Angeles and Japan, Hanwha Galleria in Seoul, and soon on Matchesfashion.com.
For the label’s designer Laurence Mahéo, opening a Paris store will offer the chance to return to her design roots with one-off items. Self-taught, the designer was exposed to textiles growing up—her grandparents ran a high-end fabric store in France—and, as an adult, started selling clothing at Le Bon Marché in small batches of one-off pieces. Mahéo branched out into collections at the suggestion of the Left Bank institution’s Régine Bérault.
“I didn’t realize I was building a brand—I was making clothing,” recalled Mahéo.
“I still have a hard time realizing that it has become a French label with a certain notoriety…I feel like I have spent 10 years working like crazy and, suddenly, lifting my head

Speaking to GameSpot, Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell said that his team’s priority, “first and foremost,” is to make Warcraft 3: Reforged as good as it can possibly be. Stilwell stopped short of saying Blizzard would never develop a fourth Warcraft game, but said the studio doesn’t have any plans for it at the moment.

President Trump Says He Plans to Sign an Executive Order Terminating Birthright Citizenship

Donald Trump’s tough stance on immigration was pushed even further on Monday night, when the president revealed his plans to terminate birthright citizenship.

In an interview with Axios on HBO, Trump said he hopes to sign an executive order that would end the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which gives right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on American soil.

“It’s in the process. It’ll happen with an executive order,” Trump said, surprised the Axios on HBO hosts knew about his plan. “I didn’t think anybody knew that but me. I thought I was the only one.”

“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” Trump said, adding that White House lawyers were working on it. “You can definitely do it with an act of Congress but now they’re saying I can do it with just an executive order.”

Many countries, including Canada, grant birthright citizenship, though Trump told Axios on HBO that it was only a problem in the United States.

“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits,” Trump said. “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

News of Trump’s plan comes a week before the mid-term elections, where feelings about his polarizing immigration policy are expected to be a driving factor to the polls.

Immigration has been a major focus of controversy throughout Trump’s presidential campaign and presidency — from his promises to build a wall to his now-reversed zero-tolerance policy that separated migrant children from their families and held them at detainment centers at the U.S./Mexico border.

The president has also been escalating his threats about a migrant caravan of 4,000 Central Americans walking through Central America fleeing violence and grim living conditions in their home countries and expected to seek asylum in the United States. On Monday, the Pentagon announced the deployment of 5,200 additionally troops to meet the caravan at the border.

I called up the military, they’re wasting their time,” he told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham in a pre-recorded interview that aired Monday, maintaining his unconfirmed claim that the group of immigrants coming included “many gang members.”

RELATED VIDEO: PEOPLE Writer Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

As for what would happen to those immigrants applying for asylum, Trump said he plans to “build tent cities” and “hold” them there before their pending court dates rather than release them into the U.S.

“If they applied for asylum, we’re going to hold them until such time as their trial takes place,” Trump told Ingraham. “We’re going to put up, we’re going to build tent cities. We’re going to put tents up all over the place. We’re not going to build structures and spend all of this, you know, hundreds of millions of dollars — we’re going to have tents. … They’re going to be very nice.”

Meghan Markle Has Very Special Plans for Her Wedding Dress

Royal wedding fans are in for a treat as plans are being made to put Meghan Markle’s stunning Givenchy gown on display.

Insiders predict that the dress will be displayed at Windsor Castle, the venue for Meghan’s May 19 wedding to Prince Harry. Royal officials are believed to be discussing a suitable time and details around the exhibit.

Designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, the stunning silk gown featured an open bateau neckline and sculpted waist. The train flowed in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza.

The process was “very collaborative,” Waight Keller said in an interview the day after the wedding, adding that Meghan was familiar with her work.

“It was a wonderful way to start the collaboration with her, finding out what she wanted for her day and just to find the absolute perfect style for her,” Waight Keller told reporters. “Part of it was really a conversation in the beginning and then through a series of sketches that I proposed to her. We exchanged conversations about what would be the ultimate lines and proportions and the scale of the dress.”

In the summer after Prince William and Kate Middleton wed in 2011, the palace made Kate’s dress — created by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen — a centrepiece of the annual opening of Buckingham Palace. More than 350,000 filed past it in the first six weeks.

An official at the Royal Collection Trust, which would create any display at the castle or Buckingham Palace, didn’t have a comment and wouldn’t be drawn on what discussions might be underway.

NEW DELHI — Sanjay Garg, a designer known for his commitment to traditional Indian textiles, began celebrating 10 years of his label last month with a small get-together in New Delhi.
But the main part of the celebration is to come later this year with the opening of two stores, one in New Delhi, and the other in Bengaluru.
“That will be a big expansion for us,” Garg told WWD, as he discussed his growth over the last decade and his status as a leader of a wave of Indian designers who favor simplicity, sustainable apparel and design that is fabric-driven.
His concepts are reflected in his existing retail office and showroom in the Chhatarpur area, where the sun shines through an open courtyard, bringing out the variety of the shades displayed, and the fine weaves of his fabrics.
This year will also mark a range of new colors and patterns, said Garg. “We have not worked with chikankari before, launching this year. Although we will continue with chanderi and mashru, which I absolutely love,” he said of his use of traditional textiles.

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

BETWEEN THE LINES: In New York for a Q&A at Spring Place and a happy hour at Camp David in Brooklyn on Thursday, Los Angeles-based fashion illustrator Jeanette Getrost discussed how the medium is coming back to life.
About 20 will be at the NYFW event at Spring and the crowd will be considerably livelier at Camp David, the co-working space for creatives started by Milk Studios’ Mazdack Rassi and Erez Shternlich. Getrost chalked up the renewed interest in fashion illustration to social media giving artists a platform to get their work out. In addition, “People get a little tired of new media and have this yearning for the past and they want things to be handmade. You can see the same Instagram posts on a daily basis but with artists they are creating something new that you’ve never seen before.”

James Franco Is Calling Exes, Plans to Attend SAG Awards in Wake of Accusations

James Franco is digging into his past in the wake of allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior.

“James has been reaching out to former girlfriends for the past month asking about his behavior,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He’s known this was coming and was trying to get ahead of the story.”

Following news of the allegations, Franco, 39, took a step back from the spotlight — even skipping the Critics Choice Awards last week where he won the Best Actor honor for his role in The Disaster Artist.

But despite being a no-show, Franco is still set to attend the Screen Actors Guild Awards this weekend, where he is nominated for Best Actor.

“There is no reason to believe that he won’t be there,” says a source close to Franco.

During a recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the actor addressed the sexual harassment allegations issued by a number of women on Twitter after wearing a Time’s Up pin at the Golden Globe Awards.

“There are people that need to be heard,” the actor told Meyers. “I have my own side of this story, but I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say, just because I believe in it that much,” he said. “So if I have to take a knock because I’m not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much.”

In an article published in the Los Angeles Times on Jan. 11, five women accused the actor of abusing his power as an acting teacher and mentor in a sexually exploitative manner. In it, two students claimed the actor would often become angry on set when they would refuse to film topless while another former acting student at the film school Franco founded said he once removed safety guards while filming an oral sex scene on the set of the 2015 film The Long Home.

Additionally, actress Violet Paley recounted her previous social media claims that Franco exposed himself and tried to pressure her into oral sex. Though she said they had a consensual relationship, Paley said: “that time wasn’t consensual.” She also alleged that he told her friend to meet him in a hotel when the friend was 17.

Franco’s attorney, Michael Plonsker, denied each of the women’s allegations, and cited Franco’s comments on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday as his formal denial.

“Look, in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done,” Franco told Colbert. “I have to do that to maintain my well being. The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate. But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don’t want to shut them down in any way.”

Victoria Beckham Gears Up for 10-Year Anniversary, Plans London Show

LONDON — Victoria Beckham plans to mark her decade in business with a series of events, including a 10th anniversary fashion show during London Fashion Week in September.
The big year will start with a change to the way Beckham shows her collections. The company said fall will be showcased via “intimate presentations” at the James Burden Mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, recalling the early appointments Beckham held in New York for the then-fledgling business.
The show will take place during London Fashion Week in September, which runs from the 14th to the 18th of the month. The company said it plans to mark the anniversary with other initiatives throughout the year, including special pieces and activations.
The 10-year anniversary comes just months after Victoria Beckham Ltd. brought in NEO Investment Partners, a private investment firm based in London, as a new shareholder.
The 30 million pound investment from NEO has been earmarked to enhance the brand’s digital and physical retail presence, drive growth in core categories and launch into new categories and collaborations. The company also plans to move to new west London premises in the spring.
The brand produces the main line Victoria Beckham, a sister line called Victoria Victoria Beckham, accessories, footwear

Craig Green Collaborates With Grenson on Footwear Range, Plans to Expand Into Accessories

LONDON — Craig Green has teamed with the British footwear brand Grenson on a capsule range as he prepares to stride fully into the accessories space later this year.
“The basis of the new collection is molding and creating volume and excess within garments,” Green said. The designer’s theme of molding also informed his footwear design as he aimed to create shoes from metal.
“When we started working on the shoes with Grenson, it was almost the idea of attempting to make the shoes look like toy soldier shoes,” Green said.
Green wasn’t given a brief and had creative freedom to design. He said he enjoyed adding his own twist to the brand’s classic style.
“It was as if you took them out of a mold and you are left with the central ridge on the toe-line — that kind of idea,” Green said. He said he added excess fold flaps to cover the laces, which resulted in a protective and workwear aesthetic that suited the brand’s ethos. Most of his collections are based around, uniform, workwear and functionality.
Green had dabbled in shoe design in the past. As a student, he created an eight-style range for Bally of Switzerland and he also collaborated with

Victoria Beckham Partners With Reebok, Plans Collaboration for Next Year

BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM: With her new deal with Reebok, Victoria Beckham is the latest designer to link up with a major athletic brand.
The British-born designer let her 17.6 million Instagram followers know by posting a video of herself wearing the Club C sneakers outside of the company’s new Boston headquarters. She made the most of her first day on the scene, hosting an all-company meeting, touring the office, checking out the brand’s archives and holding initial design and planning meetings.
The choice of Beckham is meant to further Reebok’s message of women’s empowerment, which includes a roster of internationally known personalities like Ariana Grande, Gigi Hadid, Aly Raisman and Teyana Taylor. With four children and a multimillion-dollar business, Beckham would appear to have little time for exercise. Whippet-lean as she is, Beckham has spoken publicly about her daily two-hour morning workouts and healthy diet. Reebok executives undoubtedly approve of that regimen. The fact that Beckham’s designs are meant to relay a sense of strength, confidence and power also met their approval.
Beckham said, “I have always championed instilling confidence in women and Reebok is a brand that has been at the forefront of this same message for decades. To have the

Melania Trump Plans Return to the White House After Nonstop, Stylish State Visit Throughout Asia

BEHIND THE SEAMS: On the road since Sunday, First Lady Melania Trump will be heading back to the Beltway after numerous official stops in Asia that has highlighted her international style and original brand of diplomacy.
Following what is expected to be a morning arrival at the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska, the First Lady plans to participate in a Month of Military celebration. Afterwards, she is expected to return to Washington, D.C., while the President continues his trip to Vietnam and the Philippines in keeping with their plans. Nearly 10 months into the Trump administration, the First Lady has proved to be a goodwill ambassador of sorts especially overseas.
Knowing the inevitable who-is-she-wearing question would punctuate every photo-op, the First Lady gave a lot of thought to each of the 18 pieces she wore with the help of designer and stylist Hervé Pierre. Although he designed the leather pencil skirt she paired with a boldly striped and belted Fendi coat when Air Force One touched down in Tokyo, Pierre pulled together an assortment of designer labels. The former creative director at Carolina Herrera has become a confidante of Trump’s.

Alice McCall Sets International Expansion Plans

NEW IN: Alice McCall, the Australian label known for its ultrafeminine dresses and playsuits, is looking to put itself on the international map.
McCall, a former stylist who founded the label in 2004, said partnering with Net-a-porter was the most obvious step in spearheading her brand’s expansion strategy.
McCall has also been working on creating a pricing structure and addressing seasonality requirements, with a particular focus on the U.K.
Net’s buying team said it was drawn to the femininity of the brand, and bought heavily into dresses, particularly occasionwear such as silk-organza gowns and floral dresses.
Prices vary from 220 pounds to 620 pounds, an accessible price point that’s aligned with Net’s strategy to introduce more contemporary labels to the mix.
The retailer also said it’s working with McCall on an exclusive capsule, set to launch in April.
In addition to the Net tie-in, McCall said she will continue to look for the right global partners to further expand the brand’s distribution. She said she’s currently in talks with a number of department stores and in the long term will also look to expand the brand’s international retail footprint with London being a key location.

Describing the initiative as a hybrid company, Lipps said the talent list consists of 25 people. He also has been staffing up his own team, which will have office space in the Dream Hotel in Los Angeles. His new recruits include Anahid Krile, who spent the last 17 years as director of L.A.

Monique Lhuillier Plans Paris Show for Guests at Hôtel d’Évreux

PARIS IS CALLING: Add Monique Lhuillier to the list of American designers who has set her sights on Paris.
Following in the footsteps of Proenza Schouler and Rodarte who are Paris-bound next month, she will be showing her spring collection on July 3 at Hôtel d’Évreux with an 11:30 a.m. start time. There will be 275 guests, a more intimate group than the crowds of 750 that are invited to her New York Fashion Week shows. “It will be like sharing the magic in a different platform,” she said. “It will be my ready-to-wear but slightly elevated and more intricate.”
In November, the designer and her business partner husband Tom Bugbee decided the time was right to show the collection somewhere where they never had before. “Paris has always been a place that I hold very dear to my heart and it’s the fashion capital of the world. It’s also a great gateway to reach out to the Asian market and the European market,” she said.
Tricky as it can be dealing with the distance, the logistics and new production teams, Lhuillier said she is already accustomed to similar challenges since her Los Angeles-based team must be flown to New York for fashion

Still ironing out whether it will be a two- or three-day event, as well as the location, Collins said he was very conscious about making it “of China.” With 500 to 1,000 the target number for the China edition, Collins said the mission there is to share information. “I want people in there who are going to do something with the information,” he said. “We want to take the questions that we’re posing at FCD in New York, figure out how relevant they are to China

Matteo Marzotto Reveals Plans for VicenzaOro

MILAN — Matteo Marzotto revealed plans for the upcoming VicenzaOro trade show to be held in September on the occasion of a talk at fashion school Istituto Marangoni.
Marzotto explained sustainability will be the key theme of the fair’s next appointment recalling that “We are the most appropriate subject when it comes to sustainability, [VicenzaOro is] the only tradeshow institution to have signed a formal agreement with ECOSOC — United Nations Economic and Social Council — for Corporate Social Responsibility, which means we are committed to the traceability of raw materials and a slave-labor free environment.”
Referencing the commitment of Carlo Capasa — president of the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana — to value sustainability for the September edition of Milan Fashion Week, Marzotto explained that plans for the fall edition of VicenzaOro aim to “point toward a subject [sustainability] that is crucial yet totally established for us,” adding that the post-vacation edition “is a little bit smaller than the January one, but it’s as important.”
The VicenzaOro September edition will feature a designer room “to keep investing in young talents,” said Marzotto, who is vice president of the Italian Exhibition Group that controls the show. It will also hold the second edition of the

Bikram NYC Plans Re-branding, Renovations and More Yogawear

IT’S A STRETCH: Sometimes timing just works out. Bikram NYC, the yoga-based boutique fitness operation, was already in the midst of a major re-branding plan when an arrest warrant was issued for Bikram Choudhury.
Over the years Choudhury, the creator of hot yoga, has faced multiple sexual assault allegations.
Bikram NYC is not franchised in any way with Choudhury, nor has it ever been, according to co-owner Jen Lobo, a former IMG spokeswoman. “The way that the Bikram yoga world works is that we’re not a franchise. It’s just an affiliation so there is never any money exchanged with headquarters of Bikram Choudhury. In that sense, we’ve been on our own for 18 years now,” she said. “It was never the case that money from Bikram NYC was going to Bikram. We’ve never had to pay them a penny in 18 years, which probably wasn’t good business on his behalf because if he had set it up correctly at the beginning, it might have been a different scenario financially.”
Bikram NYC’s re-branding is expected to be revealed by July 1. In October, Lobo and her business partner Donna Rubin started working with a Chicago company to re-brand Bikram NYC to better reflect the wide curriculum

Rocket League Dev on Game’s Growth, Future Plans

One of the biggest challenges facing Rocket League developer Psyonix, according to the studio’s Vice President Jeremy Dunham, is keeping up with the pace of the game’s rapid growth.

“It’s sort of a race, to grow the company at a rate somewhat comparable to how fast the game is growing,” Dunham said while speaking to IGN about the game past success and future, including its potential for coming to the Nintendo Switch.

“It’s been both flattering and a whole bunch of work because every time we think we’ve hit some sort of plateau or maybe the game is settling down, our community shows us, no, it’s not even close yet,” he explained. According to Dunham, Rocket League set records for both the most games played and most players in a single month in December 2016.

Jussara Lee Plans ‘Hand Me Up’ Pop-Up Thrift Store at Her West Village Boutique On April 22

NEW YORK – Always asking herself how to conserve natural resources and raw materials to spare the environment, Jussara Lee will unveil a “Hand Me Up” pop-up thrift store next month.
After reading that the average American doesn’t wear 75 percent of what’s in his or her closet, Lee decided unused clothing would be the resource for the April 22 shop at her Bedford Street boutique. An assortment of gently-used designer labels and brands (none of which are her own) that she has repurposed will be sold. To keep things manageable, two of Lee’s clients will each bring about 50 to resell. “I’m trying to keep things at bay because we have a small operation and a small studio,” she said. “I have a lineup of clients and as soon as I start talking about it, they say, ‘Oh my God, please come to my closet.’”
Trying to attract younger shoppers, Lee said that everything will be sold for under $ 250 and most of the items will have double-digit price tags. Making the point that even a $ 250 item would “have to be some amazing item like Commes des Garçons“ to deserve such a price, Lee said, “The idea is really to

Samantha Bee Plans A Trump Roast On Night Of White House Correspondents’ Dinner

As journalists mentally prepare themselves for a night of mingling and small talk with the Trump administration at the upcoming White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee has something else in mind.

According to The New York Times, Bee is planning a counter-event, also in Washington, at which like-minded comedians can make all the jokes about Donald Trump they want to. Bee’s gala ― “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” ― is to take place on April 29, the same night as the annual White House event.

“We’re not trying to supersede it,” Bee told The NY Times. “We just want to be there in case something happens — or doesn’t happen — and ensure that we get to properly roast the president.”

The idea to stage the event came to Bee and her producers after Trump’s election. Bee explained that they were wondering whether the event would be different under a Trump presidency, or if it would happen at all, given the president’s rocky relationship with the press

“And then we thought, Why don’t we just do one, just to do it in the way that we would want it done if we were hosting it?” she said. 

Details about Bee’s event are still being ironed out, but according to the Times, there’s a good chance we’ll get to see all the action play out in some form on TBS, the network that airs “Full Frontal.” The late-night host also said that proceeds from her dinner will be donated to the Committee to Protect Journalists. 

Since Trump’s election, Bee has not held back her criticisms of the former “Apprentice” host. She picked apart the president’s inauguration, did a deep dive into his “massive voter fraud” lie, ripped apart his transition and even united with Glenn Beck to fight “Trumpism.” 

It doesn’t look like she’s backing down anytime soon.

Brazil’s Fabiana Milazzo Plans U.S. Debut With Melrose Place Store

Brazilian designer Fabiana Milazzo is introducing her blend of handcrafted femininity and responsible entrepreneurship to the U.S. market via her new store in Los Angeles.
Known for her designs that are enhanced by artisanal embroidery, macramé, crochet and beading, she flips the script for what is considered formal and casual. A black gown has a relaxed feel with netlike sleeves and corded rope framing a high slit, whereas a sweatshirt stitched from two different shades of blue sparkles with intricately sewn beads on the front.
“I like to mix elements,” she said through an interpreter, her husband Eduardo Carvalho. “I make the party dresses less formal and enrich the casualwear.”
Readying to unveil her first Stateside sales point on Feb. 22 in a 1,300-square-foot space on Melrose Place as the recession in her country deepens, Milazzo hopes the U.S. grows to become the biggest market for her $ 5 million company. She is a seasoned designer in Brazil, having opened two stores and presented her collections at São Paulo Fashion Week since starting her namesake business in 2000. From the southeastern city of Uberlândia, Brazil, which serves as her base for design and manufacturing, she also sells to 90 retailers within the country as

Indochino Adds Staff, Plans More Store Openings

Indochino, a made-to-measure men’s suit company, has beefed up its staff as it prepares to add to its retail presence next year.
The Vancouver-based company has hired Clay Haeber, formerly of Kit and Ace and Lululemon, as chief operating officer. Morgan Whitney, another alumni of Lululemon, has joined as vice president of finance; Joseph Ford, who has worked at the Gap, Aritzia and Louis Vuitton, has been named director of global supply chain operations; and Aly Habib, formerly with Shaw Communications, has been named director of customer service.
At the same time, the company said it will expand its presence in North America by opening additional showrooms in 2017 where online sales show the greatest demand as well as in existing markets to support the showrooms that are already open.
Indochino currently has retail showrooms in New York, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver.
The company did not specify the number of stores, specific locations or time frame but did say that the strategy it employed this year — to open showrooms in a cluster in the Toronto area as well as in key shopping malls in Canada — has proven successful.

Italian Exhibition Group Plans Tourism Fair for Chengdu

Italy is stepping up its game in the increasingly competitive sport of luring cash-rich Chinese tourists away from other destinations. The newly formed trade show operator Italian Exhibition Group- an organization that counts Matteo Marzotto as part of its management team- said Monday it is launching a new business-to-business trade show called Travel Trade Market in Chengdu.
The new show, which will run Oct. 24 to 26 next year is the fruit of a joint venture between Italian Exhibition Group and Chengdu-based trade show operator Vision Fair China. CTA China Tourism Academy, a Chinese government entity that promotes tourism, is also a partner in the initiative. Rimini Fiera and Fiera di Vicenza, two regional trade fair operators, merged to form Italian Exhibition Group in October.
The new fair expects to host some 600 exhibitors, including tour operators, airlines, cruise lines, tour bus companies and hotel groups. A section of the fair will be dedicated to start-up tourism companies in China. Marzotto, vice president of Italian Exhibition Group, made the announcement about the event on Monday in Beijing at the Italian Embassy.
Italian Exhibition Group noted that the number of Chinese tourists traveling abroad rose 4.1 percent in the first six months of the

CFDA Plans Second Jewelry Design Showcase

DISPLAY CASE: The Council of Fashion Designers of America will hold a second iteration of its CFDA Jewelry Showcase at its New York City headquarters on Oct. 26. The showcase, comprised of 17 CFDA-member labels, will act as a group press day for participants. The CFDA held its first jewelry showcase in October 2013, and has revisited the idea after an outpouring of interest from jewelry design members.
“It helped each of the participants be in front of editors that they might not have been otherwise be in front of. The power of a group is stronger than the power of one — it’s about creating a collective force,” CFDA chief executive officer Steven Kolb said of the outcome of the 2013 showcase.
Of the CFDA’s approximately 500 member labels, some 79 are jewelry designers.
Kolb said of the organization’s showcase concept: “It’s to really put a spotlight on jewelry designers; women’s fashion week is always a big deal and  gives lot of attention to women’s designers. We launched men’s fashion week this past summer and that put a significant spotlight on men’s, so it seemed natural…to categorize other segments of membership.”
This same idea will soon extend to realms outside jewelry as well.

Kanye’s Decision to Show Disrupts Designers’ Plans

Kanye West’s show, a last-minute addition to New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at noon, is causing headaches for at least one fashion designer. Anne Bowen, who planned to launch her new streetwear collection, Nomad VII by Anne Bowen, at the exact same time, is up in arms and scrambling to reschedule.
Another headache: Naeem Khan is also scheduled to show in Kayne’s new time slot.
Bowen told WWD: “We have been prepping for a year for this at considerable financial, labor and commitment cost to our company. Our show date has been scheduled for months and has been on the Fashion Calendar for weeks. We went through all the proper channels to make this a reality. And just yesterday we learned that Kanye West is having a show at the same time on the same date as ours.”
“Kanye knows he is a media sensation and it is just not ethical to do this. It’s like we are David and he is Goliath. We have put our heart and soul into our show, and should not be stepped on like this,” continued Bowen.
Consequently, Bowen said she has to move her show date to Thursday, Sept. 17 at 12:30 at the

Calvin Klein Turns Up at Moncler Event, Highlights His Plans for a Book

CALVIN IN DEVELOPMENT: Latecomers to Moncler’s “Art For Love” dinner Thursday night at the New York Public Library missed Calvin Klein giving the exhibition his full attention.
Curious about Fabien Baron’s curation of the exhibition and how he wrangled the 32 featured photographers, Klein wanted to see for himself. Baron, whom Klein first worked with in the early Nineties, was one of several of his go-to photographers who mingled nearby. “It’s so well-done.” Klein said.
Another emissary of his past, Richard Avedon’s grandson Michael took a moment for a quick hello, telling Klein how he was recently looking at some of the work the designer had done with the prized photographer. And apparently so has Klein, who is in the early stages of a new book.
“I’ve been going through thousands of images that ran in advertising or that didn’t run. There are these amazing photographs that I think would be interesting to see, especially now because people don’t do that so much any more.” said Klein, noting how social media has cut short the long-form advertising he once favored. “I used to do 27-page campaigns. When I did a Vanity Fair outsert, I think it was 99 pages or something. I mean,

How Sheryl Lee Ralph Plans To Make More People Aware Of Their HIV Status

Saturday marks the 20th Anniversary of National HIV Testing Day and legendary actress Sheryl Lee Ralph is helping to raise awareness by encouraging Americans to get tested.

Ralph’s commitment to the cause prompted the 1990 launch of her nonprofit, Divinely Inspired Victoriously Aware (D.I.V.A.) Foundation, which works to lower the infection rates of HIV/AIDS through testing, erase stigma and develop programs to combat the disease.

During an interview with The Huffington Post, Ralph explained the importance — especially within the black community — of knowing one’s status.

“Knowing what is going on in your body is some of the best information you can ever have. But the whole idea behind testing, it’s not just limited to just HIV and AIDS, when it comes to black people there is one thing they do not know, they don’t know their status,” she said.

“They don’t know their numbers around diabetes, they don’t know their numbers around cholesterol, they don’t know their numbers around high blood pressure. So we are really, really stressing that people know exactly who they are when it comes to HIV and AIDS and get tested.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and almost 14 percent don’t even know they have it. The black community is disproportionately affected — black people make up 12 percent of the U.S. population, but in 2010, they accounted for approximately 44 percent of new infections.

Although Ralph’s foundation focuses specifically on women and children, the “Dreamgirls” star said her initiative isn’t limited to them.

“You don’t just help some and not others. That’s what got us to this position to begin with,” she said. “Folks didn’t want to help gay people when it was considered a gay health crisis. Folks were very, very slow to come to help when it became an issue for people of color.”

“This disease doesn’t care what color you are, it doesn’t care what race you are. It doesn’t care about your gender.”

In addition to the D.I.V.A. Foundation’s mission rid the stigma of testing, the actress-singer is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of her annual DIVAS Simply Singing benefit concert with two special events taking place in Philadelphia in August and in Los Angeles in October.

Your Summer Plans Are Destroying Your Jewelry

If accessorizing with jewelry at the beach is your thing, rock on. Just know there’s a responsibility that comes along with wearing bracelets, earrings, and necklaces by the water—cleaning them afterward, pronto. “Chemical or mineral residue from chlorine or salt water will remain on the jewelry’s surface and continue to damage it,” Kelsey Perry, Co-Chief Executive Officer of jewelry brand Silpada explained. “It can lead to tarnishing and corrosion of the finish, but can also break down functioning components such as clasps, connection rings, and stone settings.”

rihanna-jewelry-at-the-beach

Rihanna, a pro at accessorizing her bikini with jewelry.

Removing your jewelry before diving in is ideal. Water alone will accelerate tarnishing, but when you add in salt or chlorine the possibility of discoloration, bleaching, and messed-up finishes becomes a danger.

“We recommend washing immediately after exposure and before extended storage,” Perry said, describing a mix of water and mild soap as the best combo (use whatever you have around, be it hand soap or body wash). “Making sure the item is completely rinsed and dried is just as important as the actual cleaning too.” Metal’s not the only material to keep off the beach either—woven leather pieces can start to peel, dry out, and turn funky colors after being introduced to water. “Don’t wear those pieces in water,” insisted Ryane Delka, Perry’s co-CEO. “Keep leather dry at all times and clean with a soft, damp cloth or specially formulated leather cleaner.”

Already made sure to remove all pieces before hopping in the water? You’re not off the hook yet.

“The chemicals in sunscreen and the salt content of sweat act very similar to pool and ocean water, accelerating the rate of tarnishing and corrosion,” Delka told us. “Sand can act as an abrasive to metal, leather, and stones, while sun exposure can fade components, soften adhesives, and discolor metal.” The key takeaway? Before you head out for any sort of fun in the summer sun, be it a day at the beach or a game of tennis, remove your jewelry.
