Joules and Fat Face buck fashion gloom with sales surge

Family-friendly clothing brands Joules and Fat Face have celebrated not succumbing to the retail discounting frenzy by posting a surge in sales over the festive period. The upbeat figures have bucked the retail gloom. High street sales fell last month to their weakest level since March 2009 as shoppers reined in non-food spending as budgets came under pressure. In order to revive sales, much of the high street began slashing prices before Christmas. Anthony Thompson, chief executive of Fat Face, said that the heavily promotional environment had meant that many of his rivals had “lost all price integrity”. Fat Face, which specialises in casual fashion such as flannel shirts and gilets, recorded a 12pc rise in total sales over the five weeks to Jan 6. Like-for-like sale...

The way in, please: the incoming fashion of 2018

Thumbs up for everything that falls down to the ground. Acing our approvals at fashion shows—and into the suitcase of Cate Blanchett—in 2017, they take another leap of faith for survival beginning this January. And their greatest ally in the next 12 months could be just right here. “I don’t get hooked with trends,” Protacio says as he opens a new year with his recent collection. Fringe, embroidery, and Edwardian silhouettes are springing forth from his mood board that will be appearing in 2018 as the strongest elements to watch out for. While these designs have been activated late last year due to their romantic promises, they will flourish throughout the year in varied renditions. Most of the skirts fall to the tiles, longer and more streamli...

A Tour of the Most Stylish Spots in Lagos With Lisa Folawiyo

Nigeria’s largest city, Lagos, has long been known as Africa’s financial metropolis. And after hosting its own Fashion Week and fostering a multitude of emerging designers, Lagos has earned recognition as an epicenter for global fashion. Born and raised in Lagos, fashion designer Lisa Folawiyo deems her city electric. “Lagos never sleeps,” says Folawiyo, whose home city is a constant source of inspiration for her. “Amidst the traffic jams, the sounds of generators, and the bustle of everyday, the city remains charming—bursting at its seams with art, culture and music,” she adds. Fusing West African textiles and prints with modern tailoring has been key to Folawiyo’s success as a globally recognized fashion designer. Her designs have been worn by It girls like L...

With three high-profile French showjumping athletes already by her side, Mia Lei, founder of Hong Kong-based equestrian label Miasuki, is continuing her European push with a fashion capsule due to launch in the spring.

Even in retirement, Obama still responds to strangers' wedding invitations

For many people, their wedding day is the best day of their lives. But for these Americans, the day they received a save-the-date response from Barack Obama may top the list. The former president (well, actually his office) continues to respond to wedding invitations -- even though he's left the White House. Apparently mail forwarding is one government function that has avoided the DC gridlock. Related: mermaid prom dresses Yes, it's only a form letter. But these recipients aren't going to let that dim their excitement. Earlier this week, Brooke Allen tweeted a photo of a response her mother, Liz Whitlow, just received from the Office of Barack and Michelle Obama to say congratulations on her wedding. Soon, others started sharing photos of similar responses they...

Woman honors grandmother she never met by wearing her wedding dress

Madison Kantzer was never the type to plan her dream wedding. But when she got engaged to her boyfriend Adam Hoffman in Dec. 2015, she already knew exactly which dress she would be wearing. Since her childhood in Potomac, Maryland, the 29-year-old admired the floor-length, beaded gown that once belonged to her grandmother, Adele Schiff Greene. Greene passed away at 40 in 1969, when Kantzer’s mother, Patricia Greene, was only 14. Although the two women never met, Kantzer had heard plenty of stories. Images: yellow prom dresses “My mother talks about her a lot, it’s weird I’ve never met her,” Kantzer told TODAY. Much of what Kantzer knows about her grandmother came from Carl and Geraldine Simon, the friends of Adele who stepped in to act as adoptive g...
