the Public Eye in a Dressarts
Michelle Obama Returns to the Public Eye in a Dress that Sends a Message Michelle is back! The former first lady made her first public appearance since she and Barack Obama left the White House in January, stepping out at the American Institute of Artist's annual conference Thursday in a black and tan calf-length dress by New York-based label Lafayette 148. During her appearance in Orlando, Florida, Obama reiterated that no, she will not be running for office ("I wouldn't ask my children to do this again because, when you run for higher office, it's not just you, it's your whole family," she said), and that she will continue her work on two causes near and dear to her heart: ending childhood obesity and promoting education. Like many of her fashion choices in the pas...

Where to find statement handbag stickersarts
Where to find statement handbag stickers, in Hong Kong and online The Dictator rules: Childish? That’s the whole point, you ninny. And if you’re going for style then stick with boring but reliable all black. If you want individuality, read on. We first became aware of said bag decorations when Anya Hindmarch released hers in embossed leather in 2014. The designer was inspired by nostalgia for the stickers she had as a child. The collection has grown to include individual letters in various colours or quirky motifs, such as a fried egg, a rainbow, a smiley face, eyeballs and so on. Those images and others are repeated in the sparkly Diamante line and a series in mink. The brand says its stickers are designed to adhere to “any flat, rigid surface” and should be st...

Common Threads Denverarts
Five Ways with Common Threads Denver Every April, retailers start putting out their spring looks urging consumers to give into the hottest trends of the season by dropping some serious cash on new products. But why spend an entire paycheck on new spring looks when you can shop second hand spend a fraction of the cost? Not only will this save you some money, but you’ll also contribute to slow fashion, a trend of eco-conscious buying through second-hand products and overall, buying less. This year’s earth week falls on Saturday, April 22, so we teamed up with Common Threads Denver to show you how to style this one dress, five ways for a more sustainable and cash friendly wardrobe the Earth will thank you for. We chose this peach printed dress from Cotelac, a French women’s...

Sophia Amoruso's Successes and Failuresarts
Charlize Theron Explains Why Netflix's 'Girlboss' Embraces Sophia Amoruso's Successes and Failures A gang of girlbosses — Britt Robertson, Charlize Theron, Kay Cannon and of course, Sophia Amoruso — touched down at Monday night's L.A. premiere of Netflix's Girlboss, which is loosely based on Amoruso’s rise from dumpster diving and selling vintage clothes on eBay to building online fashion empire Nasty Gal. The series' premiere comes at an interesting time, as Amoruso stepped down in late 2016 after Nasty Gal filed for bankruptcy and U.K. online retailer Boohoo acquired the L.A.-based retailer in February. Amoruso's failed business plan may run counter to her New York Times best-selling memoir and overall mantra (her new media company bears the same name as the show ...

What’s hot and not in lava field fashionarts
An estimated 1,500 visitors a day hike across the lava flow fields to view the ocean entry and search for active lava breakouts. Round-trip walking distance is far; a one-way trip to the ocean entry from Kalapana is around 4 miles. Add the chase for active lava, milling about, and your hike will quickly add up to more than 10 miles when you return. With most visitors to Hawaii not packing much real hiking gear, it’s not uncommon to see visitors to the ocean entry that are not dressed for the adventure. Here are some tips from for essential lava field fashion from the U.S. Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologists who walk miles on Kilauea lava flows — both new and old. Fields of newly erupted lava are not flat — they’re hummocks, cracks and crags t...

Partnership With Selfridges Extends Past Fashionarts
Prabal Gurung is making his debut in the London retail scene. The New York-based designer has partnered with Selfridges, which launched the brand’s spring 2017 collection earlier this month, and was in town to celebrate the launch with an intimate dinner cohosted by Tank magazine’s Caroline Issa. Gurung said he found the perfect partner in Selfridges, not only because of the high caliber of the store but also because its buying team stood behind the political message he has been trying to communicate with his latest collection. “The store is very dear to me and home to many great designers, but it was also very important that they were supportive of the message I want to pass with my collections and the values of my brand. We live in really unsettling times and this...

Why Laura Wells is the modern model to know nowarts
Why Laura Wells is the modern model to know now Laura Wells is hanging out in her underwear with two blokes similarly underdressed: gardener Costa Georgiadis, who is gamely brandishing a pitch fork as a prop, and ocean conservationist Tim Silverwood. They've disrobed for a good cause, a campaign called Bare For Good organised by organic cotton brand Mighty Good Undies – to raise awareness for Fashion Revolution Week. The charity-run initiative starts on April 24, the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory disaster in Bangladesh, and encourages shoppers to ask more questions about fashion supply chains. Full disclosure, I'm a Fashion Revolutionary myself, and also posed for Bare For Good. Although with rather less body confidence than Wells. I spent the shoot day mortifie...

Handloom weavers of Chandoor set a new trend with bridal designer saris. Padmanjali Pattu, Jamdani and Ikkat saris by Chandoor weavers were popular at the fashion shows held across the country. With the designs extended by Hyderabad-based designer Gaurang Shah, nearly 30 weavers in Chandoor and surrounding villages were on the job to prepare Padmanjali Pattu Sari. The local weavers used Ikkat to weave Padmanjali Pattu saris which brought uniqueness to their products. As Padmanjali Pattu saris are selling like hot cakes in the market, the master weavers started getting orders from people well in advance. With this, weavers in the area were getting handful of work and also better income compared to the days of weaving traditional saris. The preparation of Padmanjali Pattu saris ...

how the corset is being reclaimed by the fashion industry They were a staple garment of the Victorian upper classes, and seen by some as a symbol of an oppressive desire to control and stifle the female form to suit the male gaze. But well over a century later, corsets are making a comeback, suiting the spirit of a very different age. Reclaimed most notably by high fashion’s feminist designer Miuccia Prada, as part of her AW16 collection last year, corsets have become the biggest look in the street-style universe this season. Punk, of course, got here first in the 1970s, with its overtly sexual – and anti-establishment – take, as Vivienne Westwood famously brought corsets to the runway. And when Madonna wore a Jean-Paul Gaultier conical-busted corset on her 1990 Blond Am...
