White Bandanas Are The Fashion Industry's New Protest Against Trump
Huffington Post - 10 days
While gorgeous models in incredible designs dance down the runway during Fashion month, President Donald Trump continues his fight to ban immigrants from certain countries and his Twitter tirades against those he feels have wronged him and his family.  The folks at industry news site Business of Fashion decided to rally against the current political climate by launching the #tiedtogether movement for Fashion Month. BoF’s founder and Editor-in-Chief, Imran Amed, explained the site’s resistance in a statement: In light of the current uncertainties and turmoil around the world, The Business of Fashion invites the fashion industry to stand together and make a clear statement of solidarity, unity and inclusiveness. This is not a political statement, it is a positive statement in support of humanity during a time of turmoil and fear in many nations around the world.

Ugg Boots Are Getting A Designer Overhaul
Huffington Post - about 1 month
By Max Berlinger for GQ. Phillip Lim is bringing his talents to the incredibly cozy (but not always stylish) iconic footwear. We've seen the rise of Birkenstocks, high-end water socks gain traction, and even the return of square-toed shoes, so when it comes to crazy footwear trends, we're pretty hard to shock. And yet, when we caught wind that Californian brand Ugg — whose boots were most famously seen on trendy teenage girls in the early aughts — was given the nod of approval by New York design whiz Phillip Lim, even we were a little taken aback. RELATED: Every Piece from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collaboration The limited-edition capsule Ugg boot collection will consist of four styles to be sold as part of the brand 3.1 Phillip Lim's fall-winter 2017 collection, to be shown next week in Paris. "As a designer, I am constantly interested in exploring unexpected elements to create new aesthetic propositions," Lim said of his riff on the classic boot silhouette, which has ...

Not Even Another NBA Championship Would Get Iman Shumpert To Spend Time With Trump
Huffington Post - 3 months
Miss Manners probably wouldn’t approve of turning down an invitation before it’s offered, let alone publicly criticizing your presumed host. But Iman Shumpert is choosing getting real over being polite. The Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard told Complex Magazine he wouldn’t go to Donald Trump’s White House, even if the team wins another NBA championship. “I’m not going to the White House,” Shumpert said in the interview published Wednesday. Shumpert, who voiced support for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton ahead of the election, expanded on his view of Trump’s win: I understand people’s stance on Trump. I can’t get caught up in the racial, sexist bullshit he’s got going on. That’s his personal thing, ya dig? But I just don’t think he can make anything shake like that. He not finna start no civil war out here. I do think he’s crazy—straight up. I think he did that stuff to get people to think he’s willing to shake it up. But did I vote for him? No. The other stuff ...

Target's Next Designer Collaboration Is Going To Be MAJOR
Huffington Post - 4 months
Target’s annual designer collaborations never fail to impress — and 2017’s pair-up will be no exception. The retailer just announced that it tapped none other than Victoria Beckham for a limited collection due out in April. “I’ve made no secret of the fact that I wanted to put a collection out there for people who either can’t afford designer prices or don’t want to pay designer prices,” Beckham told Business of Fashion. As such, Victoria Beckham for Target’s 200 pieces will retail for between $6 and $70, with sizing ranging from XS to 3X. It’s set to launch on April 9, 2017 and hang in Target stores around the U.S. until the end of the month — unless it totally sells out, that is. (Select pieces from the collection will also be available on Victoria Beckham’s website.) The collaboration will draw from Beckham’s Victoria Victoria Beckham line, according to a press release. “It’s quite girly, fun, happy,” Beckham told BoF. “I’ve always said [the VVB collection] is the other side ...

Yahoo News - 5 months
'Fashion month', as September is known, got off to a joyful start last week in New York, where the Spring/Summer 2017 looks were a riot of color and pattern.

5 Reasons The Striped Shirt Is The Unsung Hero Of Our Closets
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Let's take a moment to praise the striped shirt. The classic design is one of the hardest working pieces in our wardrobe, but it rarely gets the recognition doled out to the LBD (little black dress) or jeans. You can never have too many striped shirts -- they can easily be dressed up or down. It's that amazing versatility and simple linear pattern that have made the "Breton" stripe a style mainstay. So, let's give credit where credit's due and celebrate this unsung hero of your closet. Check out the shopable looks below for five awesome reasons why stripe shirts are the greatest.

Huffington Post - about 3 years
New York Fashion Week, the biannual whirlwind of runway shows and presentations (the culmination of months that American designers have spent to create their vision for the next season), is upon us, and the big questions are too: what to wear in the snow? How long will it take to get to Brooklyn Saturday night? And, will the Marc Jacobs show start 3 minutes early as usual? As buyers, editors, bloggers, stylists and celebrities descend upon New York City from all over the world, it is a clear reminder of the energy and excitement that fashion creates on both the runway and the street. It's February, which means we're seeing fall 2014 collections, and at ELLE, we are already planning for our big September fashion issue.
