Politics Comes to the New York Runways

Politics Comes to the New York Runways Should celebrities wear all-black to the Oscars? Ever since the Golden Globes, when they did exactly that (or most of them did) in support of Time’s Up, the movement to combat sexual harassment and gender inequality, this has been a question. Especially after the white-rose moment at the Grammys; especially since a similar all-black call has gone out to attendees of the British Academy Film Awards (the Baftas) this weekend.Fashion has been largely avoiding the issue, but on Sunday night, Prabal Gurung addressed it head-on.“I respect the solidarity of wearing black, but I don’t want to get to a place where women have to suppress their sense of self,” he said backstage before his show. “Where I am from” — Nepal — “color can be ...

How the humble T-shirt became a fashion statement

How the humble T-shirt became a fashion statement opens at the Fashion and Textile Museum in Bermondsey, south London, on, will look at the garment’s evolution from practical tunic in medieval times to a medium for political and social messaging in the 20th and 21st centuries. “The T-shirt has taken on a role as a signifier, a statement of intent for the wearer,” says curator Dennis Nothdruft. “It has developed an amazing power to communicate and to create a dialogue between the wearer and the world.” The exhibition’s 12 sections, on topics including ethics and ecology, merchandise and advertising, include a gallery looking at why the gender-neutral T-shirt is one of the only truly democratic fashion items. More than 200 items will be on display, with e...

East falls out of fashion and into administration

East falls out of fashion and into administration East, the bohemian fashion retailer, has tumbled into administration, putting 314 jobs at risk. The retailer, which was founded in 1994, has 34 shops and 15 concessions in department stores across the country after an earlier insolvency process three years ago slashed its store estate. In 2015, the brand which is known for its colourful, Indian block print designs, closed 15 stores and five concessions in a pre-pack deal designed to offload loss-making shops and give it a more secure future. However, the tough trading environment which has seen shoppers rein in their spending and high street footfall plummet has meant East has now appointed administrators at FRP Advisory, the firm handling the demise of BHS. ...

Coveteur Cofounder On Her Path From Side Hustle To Digital Fashion Startup

Coveteur Cofounder On Her Path From Side Hustle To Digital Fashion Startup This is the first in a four-part series taking a look at what it’s like to work at an emerging fashion media company from a variety of employee perspectives.

From cutting room floor to CEO, how one New Yorker made her fashion dreams a reality

From cutting room floor to CEO, how one New Yorker made her fashion dreams a reality For Wen Zhou, President and CEO of 3.1 Phillip Lim, it wasn’t a question of if she would work in fashion, but where she would find solid ground and build her career, after migrating from China at age 12 with her family to New York in 1985. “When I arrived to NYC, I worked in a sweatshop. My mum was a seamstress and my dad was a dishwasher. Six members of my family shared a little project that must have been about 450 square feet on the lower east side,” Zhou recalls of her first years in New York, taking on odds jobs and finally ending up as a swatch cutter before graduating to retail. “The position had great potential as I was able to work with designers on 7th Avenue,” the mot...

How royal-to-be

How royal-to-be Meghan Markle can boost a fashion brand’s fortunes Meghan Markle's romantic relationship with Prince Harry has raised her profile to stratospheric heights and, like many a royal fiancée before her, her wardrobe choices are closely watched. Dubbed "the Meghan effect," what Markle wears to a public appearance can have a major impact on a brand's profile and its sales. The duchess-to-be has been a long-time supporter of Canadian fashion, most visibly through her work as an ambassador for Montreal-based women's clothier Reitmans. While that relationship came to an end last April, Markle has continued to sport Canadian clothing and accessories, most recently donning a coat by Toronto-based Smythe to visit a British radio station on Jan. 9. With the immediacy of s...

How Oxfam became

How Oxfam became the rising star of UK's online fashion industry It’s one of fashion’s best kept secrets, a website where you can buy luxury brands such as Burberry, Prada and Miu Miu as well as the best of the high street for a steal. Sales were up 33% at Christmas as shoppers bagged vintage and designer clothes for the party season but the company is not listed on the stock exchange like the web giant Asos and there is no chance of it ever being taken over. And if you look closely some of the clothes might seem familiar. In fact they might actually be your clothes – because Oxfam has emerged as an unlikely rising star of the UK’s fast-growing online fashion scene as it casts an increasingly canny eye over the branded cast-offs and vintage styles dumped in bin ba...

Andrea Moore fashion label in liquidation

Andrea Moore fashion label in liquidation - expansion, road works cause 'perfect storm Iconic Kiwi fashion brand Andrea Moore has gone into liquidation after nearly 20 years in business. The label's managing director, Brian Molloy, said "highly damaging" late deliveries, crippling creditor payment defaults and extensive roadworks outside both its Auckland and Christchurch stores constrained trade for months. The company hit a "perfect storm" in 2017, Molloy said on Tue "Though we have a loyal customer base of over 30,000 our problems will be familiar to anyone conversant with the hugely capital-intensive nature of the industry which has become very discount driven affecting valuable margins."
