1960s fashion influences skin therapist's style

Cassandra Ann Colling's in good company with her style icons. Naming Tippi Hedren, Edie Sedgwick, Audrey Hepburn and her grandma Barb, the 30-year-old skin therapist at Ulta in Fargo says fashion in the 1960s shapes her style. I spotted Colling at Stumbeano's Coffee Bar and liked her mix of dressy and casual pieces, flawless makeup and unique collection of fashion influences. Describe your style. Classy and retro with an edge. What are you wearing today? My top and blazer are from LOT 2029 in Fargo, my necklace is from Proper... [Lire la suite]

Fashion house boss: 'We have nothing to fear if Britain leaves EU'

BRITAIN'S influence within the European Union is "absolutely pitiful" and business has "nothing to fear" if the UK votes to leave, a leading Derbyshire businessman has argued. Christopher Nieper, managing director of clothing manufacturer David Nieper, said Britain's ability to sell into the Eurozone would be intact should a "Brexit" – British exit – take place, adding that emerging world markets presented more opportunities than the EU. In his first in-depth interview on the subject, Mr Nieper, whose father David Nieper founded the... [Lire la suite]

In Milan, Ermenegildo Zegna and Ralph Lauren Zero In on the One Percent

Horizontal is not the only direction for market expansion in the rag trade. Increasingly, designer ambitions are turning vertical. Considered in global terms, the population of the One Percent amounts to a nationality of its own, a new reality duly reflected in Stefano Pilati’s Ermenegildo Zegna collection for men, titled Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. With models either wearing or toting numbers — as at classic women’s couture shows of yesteryear — and parading around a fake fur runway to tracks from David Bowie’s “Young Americans,”...

‘Bowie Again!’ Fashion Critic’s Notebook

Emails about how best to report on the formative relationship David Bowie had with the fashion industry started to swirl through the Style section (and between the Style and Culture sections) as soon as we heard news of Mr. Bowie’s death. We knew we’d need to acknowledge that Mr. Bowie’s influence on fashion was a big and important part of his legacy; it’s impossible to be in fashion and not realize how formative he was for many designers; it is, literally, in front of your nose. But how? Should we do a slide show (T Magazine was on... [Lire la suite]

Does Wearing Fake Fashion Items Make You Trashy?

Then there are those who remark…”Yes, I know it’s a fake, but “everyone” buys them!“ I’ve heard of it happening and even seen it a few times; male and female celebrities carrying around fake handbags, wearing fake shoes, belts and even clothes. This is one thing I find hard to grasp – if you’re in the limelight, why on earth would you carry around or wear something fake from a high fashion brand, when indeed there are actually high street brands that you can afford the real deal from? I know a lot of home grown designers give... [Lire la suite]

Should fashion models have minimum BMI?

Fashion models should be benched if they are dangerously thin, and U.S. regulators should make sure this happens. So says a provocative editorial published Monday in the American Journal of Public Health. The authors, both experts on eating disorders affiliated with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, argue that fashion models are just as deserving of protection as coal miners and garment factory workers. Instead of being vulnerable to black lung or repetitive stress injuries, models are at risk of eating... [Lire la suite]

Freeze Fashion

In February 2012 fashion designer Manish Malhotra made a statement when one of his male models turned up on a Delhi ramp wearing pheran with tilla embroidery. He was inspired by Kashmiri colours while shooting for Rockstar in the Valley. Nobody knows if any of his clients turned up for buying pheran. In valley, however, the statement pushed pheran to get trendy, and innovative. It is 8:30 am and a group of girls are giggling while coming out of their tuition centre in Parrypora, a locality fast emerging as an address for fashion... [Lire la suite]

Fashion made from fur of animal casualties gets brush-off from animal-rights groups, fur trade

Pamela Paquin's source for fashion may make you shriek. She creates neck muffs, leg warmers, hats, handbags and more from roadkill, or “accidental fur” as she prefers to call it. As owner of Petite Mort Fur, a company set up two years ago in the northeastern United States, she said she’s offering the fur industry an alternative to wild fur trapping and large-scale fur farms. “All this fur is being thrown away,” Paquin said. “If we can pick that up, we never have to kill another fur-bearing animal again.” Statements like that,...
