Milan Men’s Fashion Week to Be Held in September With Women’s

After several coed experiments, Milan’s Women’s Fashion Week in September will become the first season that will combine men’s and women’s collections.
Italy’s Camera Nazionale della Moda said Friday evening that the spring 2021 men’s shows and presentations slated for June 19 to 23 will run in September during Milan Women’s Fashion Week, which is expected to start on the Sept. 22 and end on Sept. 28.
The decision was taken in light of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are working on new digital formats and new ways to meet,” said the association in a statement, forecasting “other moments of storytelling, B2B and B2C platforms to benefit the brands, luxury brands and all the system.”
The Camera continued by stating that “everything will be done to have the collections ready in those dates for the beginning of an innovative sales campaign.” The 800 showrooms in Milan will be part of the events.
The news of the postponement of the Milan men’s shows came only minutes after the Fédération Haute Couture et de la Mode revealed it was canceling Paris men’s fashion week and the Paris haute couture scheduled for late June and early July, respectively. The French group said it was working on

Phillip Lim to Be Honored at China Fashion Gala

FALL AHEAD: The entire world is in flux, so the fact that the date for this year’s China Fashion Gala has not yet been set constitutes just another shrug. What is definitive is this year’s leading fashion honoree: Phillip Lim. The occasion is just one of many fashion-rooted spring events on the social calendar that has been subject to change due to the coronavirus pandemic. China Fashion Gala expects to return to The Plaza Hotel, but this fall instead of in the spring, according to a spokeswoman for the event.

Fashion Fights Coronavirus: Designers Create Masks, Hospital Gowns and More to Fight Pandemic

Many of the world’s fashion designers and brands have had to halt everyday operations due to the coronavirus pandemic — but now, several firms are reallocating resources to fight the virus’ spread.
As COVID-19 cases have sharply increased, affecting 341,500 people and causing 15,187 deaths globally as of March 23, so too has the need for essential resources, such as masks, hospital gowns and hand sanitizer.
Fashion designers including Christian Siriano, Brandon Maxwell and Michael Costello are coming in to help fill that gap, mobilizing their teams to produce supplies needed by health-care workers and COVID-19 patients.
Larger companies, such as LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Kering, L’Oréal and Coty are also pitching in, having their factories produce hand sanitizer to distribute free of charge to health authorities.
Here, WWD compiles the ways that fashion designers and brands are pitching in to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brandon Maxwell
Brandon Maxwell’s team is researching the appropriate medical textiles to make gowns for hospital doctors and nurses treating COVID-19 patients. He also aims to create medical grade masks and gloves as more information on manufacturing these supplies becomes available.
“It is important for us to come together now not only for each other, but most importantly for the communities

Are Sweatpants the Only Fashion Trend in America Right Now?

America has entered a period of self-isolation and stretch pants, and retailers across the country are reporting a surge in sweatpants sales during imposed lockdowns to curb the coronavirus’ spread.
While stores say that COVID-19 induced anxiety and dim economic forecasts have caused a steep drop-off in overall fashion sales, sweatpants appear to be an exception — their popularity spiking at a rate that may indicate they are the biggest (and perhaps only) trend in fashion right now.
With restaurants and nonessential stores closed by mandate and most professionals working from home, fashion status symbols have been rendered nearly useless. Consumers have few places to go that require any degree of style or savoir-faire, and in turn have begun dressing for comfort.
“There is a real shift in values within this moment,” said Scott Sternberg, founder of the sustainable basics label Entireworld, which saw its site traffic and sales conversion rate double last week, the first full workweek charted under quarantine.
Sweatpants have not appeared this relevant or widespread since the early-Aughts craze for Juicy Couture. Even the most devoted of fashion plates who have made a career out of getting dressed for the sake of it — including influencers Danielle Bernstein, Olivia Palermo

Fashion, Textile Cos. in U.S. Start Producing Medical Face Masks

American fashion and textile companies are starting to collectively produce medical grade face masks, as the country’s doctors and hospitals deal with a critical shortage amid a growing number of patients ill with COVID-19, or coronavirus.
As of now, nine companies have formed a “coalition” of sorts to get production going, according to the National Council of Textile Organizations. The companies are American Giant, Fruit of the Loom, Hanesbrands, Parkdale Inc., Los Angeles Apparel, AST Sportswear, American Knits, Beverly Knits and Riegel Linen.
The NCTO said Parkdale, the largest yarn spinner in the U.S. based in North Carolina, led the effort after the White House made clear there was an urgent need for medical supplies like face masks. The organization said the nine companies joined together “virtually overnight” to “build a supply chain” and “fast-track the manufacturing of medical face masks to help hospitals, health care workers and citizens battling the spread of the COVID-19 disease.”
Peter Navarro, an assistant to President Donald Trump and current director of the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, has been working with the coalition and some of the first face masks have already been approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,

Christian Siriano Encourages Fashion Designers to Pitch in Designing Masks for Hospital Workers

GET TO WORK: Christian Siriano is calling on other fashion designers to join his efforts to sew masks for hospital workers in the fight against the coronavirus.
After tweeting to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday asking how he could get masks to New York City hospitals, Cuomo’s team responded immediately to help coordinate and to determine which hospital needs the masks first, Siriano said.
Now working from his home in Connecticut, Siriano said he and his team aim to make 1,000 masks for New York City hospitals in a couple of days.
Siriano also hopes that any other designer who has the production capacity to help will do so. “I really think that if anybody still has team members who are sewing or who can sew, especially in New York, we could make a few hundred a day. There are only so many people who work in a hospital. Fashion could really change everything in a week. Look, we have nothing else to do right now. Nobody is buying clothes so what can we do? I hope that everybody can pitch in.”
Siriano said, “I know that Monique Lhuillier has a full working atelier in L.A. Maybe she can help. Hopefully, everybody

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio have made such orders to prohibit large gatherings, including closures of restaurants, bars, gyms, nightclubs and other businesses.

Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week Postponed as Coronavirus Spreads in Spain

MILAN — As the coronavirus outbreak is spreading globally, Fira de Barcelona, the organizer of Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week announced Monday it is postponing the dates of its upcoming trade show and collateral events.
The event dedicated to bridalwear, originally slated to take place April 20 to 26, will now be held June 8 to 14.
“We are taking this decision in order to celebrate our 30th edition in more suitable dates to ensure its success, not only because of the quality of the collections and the presence of the big national and international firms, but also because the whole bridal industry has shown all the support to what they consider their trade show of reference,” commented the trade show president Jesús Díez Betriu.
As of Monday, Spain had 9,191 cases of COVID-19 in the country and 309 people deceased from the disease. On Saturday, the country took the drastic measure of ordering a lockdown as Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said people should only leave their homes for “essential activities.” Those include work, seeking medical care, shopping for food and groceries, visits to the pharmacy and caring for the elderly. Schools across the country had already been closed.

SYDNEY — Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia’s 25th–anniversary edition has been canceled, according to organizer IMG.
The showcase of Australian Resort 2021 collections had been due to run from May 11 to 15 at Sydney’s Carriageworks venue.
“Due to the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC)’s mandate against holding non-essential, organized public gatherings of more than 500 people in light of global health concerns regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), we regret to share that Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2020 will not take place,” said Natalie Xenita, executive director of IMG’s fashion events group for the Asia-Pacific region, in a statement on Tuesday morning Sydney time — a day after the introduction of the Australian federal government ban. “We thank our incredible designers, producers, partners and staff for their support of the Australian fashion community and look forward to celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2021.”
All tickets already sold to MBFWA shows taking part in the new MBFWA: The Experience initiative will be reimbursed as quickly as possible, according to IMG. In November, IMG said it was trialing an integrated consumer strategy at this year’s event, which was due to see 25 percent of seats at participating shows available for purchase by the public.

Coronavirus Concerns Shut Down the Melbourne Fashion Festival

SYDNEY — The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival has cancelled its remaining 2020 program in the wake of Friday’s Australian federal government announcement of a ban on all non-essential public events attended by more than 500 people.
Although the ban is not due to come into effect until March 16, the festival said late Friday that it would cancel all remaining events, including seven runway shows over Friday evening and Saturday, more than half of them ticketed events attended by up to 1,500. The consumer festival, which started on March 4, attracts up to 400,000 people.
“In the interest of the health and safety of our partners, participants, team, volunteers and patrons, the festival has made the decision to cancel all remaining events, effective immediately as a precautionary containment measure,” said event publicist, AMPR, in a statement. Tickets will be reimbursed via event partner Eventfinda.
The VAMFF announcement came a few hours after the abrupt cancellation of the Australian Formula One Grand Prix, which had been due to run at Melbourne’s Albert Park over the weekend.

The Fashion Weeks and Major Events Disrupted Because of Coronavirus

As the coronavirus outbreak spreads, so too its effect on the fashion industry.
COVID-19 has steadily spread globally currently with more than 100 nations affected by the virus, with cases totaling at roughly 135,400 and the death toll at 4,988 as of March 13.
The virus hit Italy in the midst of Milan Fashion Week late February, causing many designers to rethink how they’d present their fall 2020 collections. Giorgio Armani, for one, barred a public audience at his runway show, later posting a video of the collection shown in an empty theater.
The virus continues to have an adverse effect on design houses, many of which have had to cancel or postpone their international resort 2021 shows.
Events are also not immune to the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. A number of major gatherings — including SXSW, Coachella and the Tribeca Film Festival — have already been canceled, leading many to speculate the fate of others, such as the Met Gala, CFDA Awards and even the Olympic Games.

New York’s Top Fashion Design Schools Cancel Classes Over Coronavirus

New York City’s top two fashion design schools have decided to cancel classes and move to remote instruction in light of the growing coronavirus pandemic. Both the Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons School of Design are increasing measures to avoid outbreaks on campus.
Late Wednesday afternoon, New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that all state and New York City government-affiliated universities would move toward remote instruction beginning March 19 in an effort to promote “distance learning” and reduce “campus density,” throughout the remainder of this spring semester. The Fashion Institute of Technology, which is a SUNY school, is included in this mandate and has suspended classes from March 16 to 22 so that professors can “prepare for potential online class instruction and for employees to prepare to work remotely.”
FIT president Joyce Brown issued a memo to students this afternoon noting, “Beginning March 16, all classes will be suspended for a week to allow faculty to prepare for potential online class instruction and for staff and administration to prepare contingency plans for working remotely or implementing alternative scheduling in the event the campus is required to close or there is a determination to reduce the population density of the campus.

Baukjen and Isabella Oliver Sign Onto Fashion Pact

London-based retailer House of Baukjen Ltd., which includes contemporary brand Baukjen and maternity line Isabella Oliver — is the latest to sign onto the Fashion Pact.
The apparel company, founded in 2003 by husband-and wife-duo Geoff van Sonsbeeck and Baukjen de Swaan Arons is pending B Corp. certification and already incorporates a range of practices that prioritize social and environmental good.
In the case of Isabella Oliver, biodegradable, low impact fabrics like lyocell are used across product lines with more than 90 percent of the clothing produced in Europe with fabrics sourced locally to factories. And at either brand, designing with longevity and the full-product life cycle of a garment is top of mind, with a “pre-loved” clothing donation program and garment care instructions for extending utility, along with other initiatives.
Baukjen and Isabella Oliver join Diesel, which signed on most recently this February, as well as Farfetch, Mango and more signing on this October.
Now counting more than 64 total signatories, the Kering-led global coalition of fashion and textile companies is what many in the industry profess as a promising means of creating industry alignment in regards to climate and biodiversity.

Copenhagen Fashion Summit Postpones Event Due to Coronavirus

LONDON — Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the annual two-day event around sustainability, has been postponed to October due to the coronavirus.
Originally, the summit was supposed to take place this May, but as health bodies warn of large crowds and governments cancel sporting events, it comes as no surprise that fashion is to follow suit.
“While this was certainly a difficult decision, we believe it is the only responsible and sensible thing to do, taking the global health uncertainties and authority recommendations into consideration. The health and safety of everyone on our team, including the numerous participants who come from across the globe to Copenhagen each May to convene and advance sustainability in fashion is our first priority,” summit organizers said in a statement released today.
The summit attracts more than 1,000 members of the fashion and retail industry with more than 100 companies attending and exhibiting and 600 business meetings facilitated.
Earlier this week, Giorgio Armani and Versace postponed their cruise shows and Tokyo Fashion Week and Milano Design Week has also been canceled in light of COVID-19. A string of other shows has been canceled such as Ralph Lauren and Gucci cruise show, which was supposed to take place mid-May.

Lotus India Fashion Week Latest to Be Canceled

NEW DELHI — Lotus India Fashion Week has been postponed as the coronavirus made an appearance in India last week, with the number of people infected growing to 30 on Thursday.
The number has risen quickly, up from six on Tuesday.
Sunil Sethi, chairman of the Fashion Design Council of India, which coordinates the twice yearly event, said that all the permissions were in place and more than 80 exhibition stands were ready to be set up along with the runway shows, which were to be held at Jawaharlal Nehru stadium from March 11 to 15.
“It was a tough decision,” he told WWD. “We did think about getting masks for every person who attended, and hand sanitizers everywhere — and if we had the facility to do the kind of screening that is done at the airport it would have been a different matter. In the end, it is a financial loss, but public safety comes first. The board and I had to make that tough call.”
Despite a sense of disappointment, designers supported the move.
“We’re just ready with everything, since the fashion week is scheduled to open next week,” said designer Samant Chauhan, who was to show on the first day. “But

Ralph Lauren to Cancel April Fashion Show Due to the Coronavirus Outbreak

Add Ralph Lauren to the list of companies that are canceling events due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Lauren said Tuesday night it has decided to cancel its April fashion show, which was planned for an unspecified location in New York.
“In light of the ongoing uncertainties related to the novel coronavirus around the world, we have decided to cancel our fall 2020 show as a precautionary measure and out of respect for our teams, partners and consumers. Our primary focus remains on their health and safety,” said a Ralph Lauren spokesman.
As reported, Lauren didn’t participate in New York Fashion Week in February and had instead decided to show separately in late April. Lauren had been on the “see-now-buy-now schedule” since September 2016, and he was planning to get out of that rhythm and routine and show fall 2020 in April.
WWD reported this week that Gucci decided to cancel its cruise 2021 fashion show that was slated for San Francisco on May 18. The decision follows Prada’s move to postpone its cruise show, which had been scheduled for May 21 in Tokyo. Several trade shows, from Mido and the Salone del Mobile in Milan to Cosmoprof in Bologna, Watches & Wonders in Geneva

Paris Fashion Week Crowd Takes in Betty Catroux Exhibit

THE YSL OG: “It’s not to me you should be saying ‘bravo’ but to Anthony [Vaccarello],” said Betty Catroux as guests applauded as she arrived at the opening of “Betty Catroux, Yves Saint Laurent, Feminine Singular” on Thursday night.
Charlotte Casiraghi, Rami Malek, Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy spent long moments perusing photographs that captured a pair that looked so alive that they made these snapshots seem like they’d been taken yesterday.
Charlotte Gainsbourg was touched by a picture of her mother Jane Birkin and Catroux. “They’re having fun in a magazine and it’s funny that Anthony chose this,” she said. “Before being a muse or an inspiration, she inspired Yves Saint Laurent by her real nature. We feel the friendship they shared. As a creative, I need [that kind of connection]. When I have an inspiration, something that attracts me, I need it to answer a conversation with someone who will be just as engaged on a topic that fits us. I wouldn’t be comfortable in an office, inventing something alone. I’m lucky with Anthony in that regard.”

Shanghai Fashion Week Goes Online With Tmall

LONDON — The postponed Shanghai Fashion Week is now partnering with Alibaba’s Tmall to create an online platform for Chinese designers and commercial brands to showcase their fall 2020 collection from March 24 to 30 as an alternative solution amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The schedule is expected to be revealed mid-March as the application for the online fashion week has just begun. Brands will be showcasing their fall 2020 collections as well as selling items from the current season via live-streaming.
Lv Xiaolei, vice secretary of the Shanghai Fashion Week Committee, told WWD that Shanghai Fashion Week would miss a big opportunity, if it doesn’t embrace new technology.
“Tmall promises to direct millions of traffic [views] to our designers. This means brands will be able to generate more sales, and many of them can be saved from bankruptcy amid this difficult time,” she said.
She also revealed that if the online fashion week goes well, it will continue to be included as part of Shanghai Fashion Week in the future.
Showrooms and trade shows, key components of Shanghai Fashion Week, will need to figure out a time slot of their own.

French Fashion Body Spotlights Eight Emerging Designers

TAKE TWO: The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, French fashion’s governing body, continues to ramp up its support of emerging designers. Integrating international brands for the first time, its Sphere showroom, which debuted in January, replacing Designers Apartment, showcases eight young labels in its second edition, five of which are also showing on the official calendar this Paris Fashion Week.
Swiss designer Kévin Germanier, a finalist for last year’s LVMH Prize, is among the international entrants with his flamboyant collection made from upcycled and deadstock materials.
With wholesale prices ranging from 80 euros to 5,000 euros, the designer’s stockists include Matchesfashion.com.
Also Nigerian designer Kenneth Ize, who made his Paris runway debut earlier in the week, was hoping to pick up international clients through the showroom. “I’m ready for market, I want people to know that,” he said.
Returning designer Juan Hernandez Daels, of equestrian-inspired contemporary label Sadaels, offered a collection incorporating rosette motifs into exclusive prints on velvet and silk, as well as reworked gaucho pants and accessories inspired by his native Argentina.
For his third collection, Alexandre Blanc added volume to his Thirties-inspired lineup with heavy draping, contrasting this with his print pieces based on paintings.

Off-White x Air Jordan IV Makes Paris Fashion Week Debut

Is there another Jordan Brand sneaker coming from Virgil Abloh?
Just weeks after one-upping his Off-White x Air Jordan V sneaker with a white colorway during NBA All-Star Weekend, a white and natural colorway of the Air Jordan IV debuted at the Off-White fall 2020 collection in Paris on Thursday.
Abloh presented his collection on the likes of Karlie Kloss, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and even their mother Yolanda Hadid, who returned to the runway for the show, but the real show stealer of the night is the sneaker that accompanied two looks in the middle of the show.
The designer shared an image of the sneaker on Instagram with open-toed heels and the caption “forever attempting to jump from the free throw line.”
The Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker first launched in 1989. The version at the show resembles past Off-White x Jordan and Nike collaboration sneakers, featuring details like zip ties on the laces, “AIR” in quotation marks on the sole and “SHOELACES” on the laces.

Moore From L.A.: At Paris Fashion Week, Air Kissing Is Out, Hand Sanitizer In

The LVMH Prize cocktail party is the latest cancellation at a Paris Fashion Week gripped with anxiety over coronavirus, where bottles of hand sanitizer, not perfume, were door gifts at the Paco Rabanne show held Thursday at the Conciergerie, the historic French Revolution-era site that’s certainly seen more head-spinning disasters.
The invisible menace hasn’t emptied the lunch crowd at L’Avenue, or cleared Caviar Kaspia (“We are fully booked every night with a huge waiting list,” reports chief executive officer Ramon Mac-Crohon.) And it didn’t keep Rachel Brosnahan, Demi Moore and Sigourney Weaver from the front row at Dior, Usher from Rick Owens or Carla Bruni and Tyga (what a pair) from coming to Off-White.
But it has created new rules of engagement, as the most social creatures on earth adjust to the “social distancing” being recommended by medical professionals to prevent the spread of the virus.
Air kissing is out, the arm squeeze is in, and every greeting (at fashion week, there are so, so many) is fraught with awkwardness as people gauge their coronavirus comfort level. “Wait, did you just come from Milan?” joked Anthony Vaccarello, kissing Vogue editor Mark Holgate on each cheek backstage after the Saint Laurent show. “No!” Holgate

Stefano Rosso to Open D-Cave Fashion and Gaming Lifestyle Pop-up

Diesel North American chief executive officer Stefano Rosso is a gamer. He grew up playing Atari but, in his words, life took over, and he put games on the back burner to start a career in fashion.
But on Thursday, Rosso and his partner Furio Garibaldi will launch D-Cave, a lifestyle gaming pop-up shop that bridges the gaming, fashion and music worlds.
“I’ve always been a player but never professionally. Recently, I was able to rediscover how much this environment has been growing,” he said. “It’s time to bring all of the elements of the lifestyle of gaming under one roof. This is almost a dream come true for people like me who have been playing since they were kids.”
D-Cave will be open at 415 Broadway through March 1, and will offer gaming and music programming over the three days. The two-floor pop-up will host a marketplace and music on the first level and dedicate the second floor to gaming events such as a FIFA gaming tournament with the New York City Football Club and New York RedBull FIFA players, Fortnite with Nate Hill of FaZe Clan and DrLupo, and an appearance from competitive fighting game player Justin Wong.

Fashion Ambitionist’s Marissa Grossman Is Launching a Fashion Brand

Marissa Grossman, née Fuchs, of last year’s viral proposal craze, is gearing up for her next venture: a fashion brand of her very own.
The influencer, who left her role as director of brand partnerships at Goop in November, revealed the news today just a few months after she experienced a short window of Internet fame when her elaborate, branded scavenger hunt-themed marriage proposal-turned-wedding went viral via her extensive documentation on Instagram.
Many were captivated by her more than 300 Instagram Stories showing each stage of the “experience,” complete with brand tags and product mentions, but media outlets speculated that the scavenger hunt was a little more than an elaborate sponsored content stunt. A pitch deck made by Grossman’s now-husband, Gabriel Grossman, was leaked online and seemed to confirm such speculation. As did the Grossmans holding a second wedding for friends and family.
After all the publicity, Grossman has revealed she’s officially branching out on her own. On Tuesday, she revealed to her 172,000 Instagram followers the launch of a new business called Shop Ambitionist as an extension of her Instagram account and blog, which focuses on shopping, fashion and lifestyle.
“Thank you guys so much for following, I’m so overwhelmed,” Grossman said in

Coronavirus Impact: How the Epidemic Has Impacted the Fashion Industry

As the coronavirus continues to spread, so too has its impact on the industry.
The world has been on edge since news of the virus’ outbreak began in late January in Wuhan City in the Hubei Province of China. The virus has quickly spread globally, with cases popping up in the U.S., the U.K., Italy, Japan, Egypt and Iran, as well as in about 30 other nations, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The coronavirus is increasingly having a negative impact on the fashion industry specifically, especially the fall 2020 fashion month season. Reports of the coronavirus hitting Italy coincided with the end of Milan Fashion Week, leading to the cancellation of a number of runway shows and events.
Here, WWD breaks down the ways that the epidemic — which has amassed a total of 77,150 cases and 2,592 deaths worldwide as of Feb. 24, according to The Washington Post — has impacted the fashion industry.

Fashion Group International Partners With Greenwich Entertainment

EXPANDING REACH: Fashion Group International has linked up with Greenwich Entertainment, the North American distributors of the documentary “The Times of Bill Cunningham.”
FGI president and chief executive officer Maryanne Grisz is expected to reveal the partnership news tonight at a private screening in New York City. Tonight’s event at the Angelika Film Center is geared for FGI members and its board of directors. Grisz said in a statement issued Monday, “The synergistic relationship between film and fashion has never been stronger, particularly as we look to film for exciting new ways to present fashion and innovative messaging to the world.”
After watching the 74-minute film, which opened last month, tonight’s attendees can listen to a one-on-one conversation between the flick’s coproducer and director Mark Bozek and Donna Karan. The pair will speak of some of their memories of Cunningham. The documentary is anchored in a 1994 interview that Bozek conducted with The New York Times street photographer. What was supposed to be a 10-minute conversation lasted for a few hours. Cunningham died in 2016 at the age of 87.
The film is narrated by actress Sarah Jessica Parker. In the documentary, Cunningham recounts his days of working as a milliner in France

Perhaps his American contemporaries were hanging out at the mall. But when he was a teenager, Idris Balogun, the founder of New York-based label Winnie, took to “the Row” — Saville Row — in London. Landing his first apprenticeship at age 15, Balogun, who grew up in a family of Nigerian immigrants, said he feels lucky to have learned the tricks of the trade at an early age — tailoring and pattern-cutting.
“The guys on Savile Row kind of think of themselves as a separate entity from fashion,” he explained, noting they stuck to the classics, avoiding the fashion industry’s seasonal churn. He himself felt the pull and eventually moved to the design studios of Burberry and Tom Ford.
“I kind of found beauty in that, in the seasonal operation, because there’s always newness,” he said. He got himself into trouble, at times, suggesting fresh ideas.
“Like, ‘Well, why do we have this line here, instead of putting it here?’ or ‘How come our lapel can’t be a bit slimmer?’ But all houses have rules and you kind of have to kind of stick to those rules when you’re a cutter,” he said.

Kenneth Ize Steps Up With Paris Fashion Week Debut

PARIS — This time last year, Kenneth Ize was preparing to showcase his work in Paris as one of the semifinalists of the LVMH Prize for Young Designers. Twelve months on, he’s gearing up for his first runway show in the French capital, to be held on the opening day of Paris Fashion Week.
“I wasn’t expecting this to come that soon, so it’s just an amazing journey,” marveled the Nigerian designer, who made it to the finals of the LVMH Prize. Though he didn’t leave with an award, the connections he made in Paris have opened many doors, with Ize’s retail network doubling to 18 stores for the spring 2020 season.
Having shown at Arise Fashion Week last April, he’s ready to bring his gender-fluid collection to a bigger stage, with the support of Naomi Campbell, who co-owns the fashion week held in Lagos. The British model is expected at the Paris show, to be held at the Palais de Tokyo on Feb. 24, though whether she will model for Ize again, or sit in the front row, is undecided.
“I just need to grow this brand and I need to open it to investors,” Ize said of his decision to show in

FIT’s Joyce Brown Takes Several Steps to Deal with Fallout of MFA Fashion Show

Joyce F. Brown, president of Fashion Institute of Technology, released a new statement Friday evening to the FIT community updating the steps the college has taken and continues to take in response to the fallout of the MFA Fashion show on Feb. 7.
As reported, during that show, model Amy Lefevre refused to wear accessories she considered racist that FIT graduate Junkai Huang showed with his looks. She walked the runway without them and told WWD she felt uncomfortable wearing them. Earlier this week, Brown issued a lengthy apology to those who participated in the show, to students and those who were offended by what they saw. The accessories, in question, were large prosthetic ears and lips and bushy eyebrows
“This moment, in our minds, is not about closing a chapter and letting wounds heal. It is the beginning of accountability. And we cannot expect our community to trust us without a full examination of how this came about,” said Brown in the new statement. She said FIT  has commissioned an independent investigation “of ourselves.”

3 Ways Rihanna Electrified the Fashion and Beauty Industries

Rihanna’s effect on the fashion and beauty industries is undoubtable.
Long acclaimed for her eclectic, edgy style, the Barbados-born singer who turns 32 today, has brought her star power to a number of brands — including Armani, Dior and Manolo Blahnik, to name a few — before delving into her entrepreneurial side.
She made her business foray in 2017, creating her Fenty Beauty line with inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of the brand’s mission. Rihanna launched the brand with an unprecedented 40-shade foundation range — much larger than the average beauty brand offer starting out — and has expanded the range to now include 50 options, setting the new standard that brands have soon after followed.
Rihanna then took that ethos and applied it to the intimates industry, hosting a lingerie fashion show for the second collection of her Savage x Fenty line that challenged beleaguered lingerie giant, Victoria’s Secret.
She’s now bringing her business acumen to luxury fashion with her Fenty fashion label in partnership with LVMH. Just a few months after launching the brand, Rihanna was the recipient of the Urban Luxe Award at the British Fashion Awards in December.

Virgie Tovar’s Plus-size Personality Talks Fashion, Body Positivity

Virgie Tovar was on the hunt for a few household products when she caught a glimpse of Target’s new swim campaign. 
There was a woman with a muffin top hanging over the bikini bottoms. Another one had visible burn marks. Yet another with pregnancy scars. 
“I just kind of stopped dead in my tracks,” Tovar told WWD. 
The advocate, influencer, author of books like “You Have the Right to Remain Fat” and plus-size personality knows a lot about super-size fashion. She’s worked with brands such as Curvy Couture lingerie, Dia&Co., Eloquii, Torrid and Anthropologie, has a master’s degree in what she calls “fat studies, essentially,” and travels around the country to talk about weight-based discrimination. 
Still, “I literally never thought that in my lifetime that I would see that. I grew up fat. I come from a fat family. I experienced a lot of fat shaming and fat phobia growing up. And it really impacted how I walked through the world.”

LOVING CHINA: As the coronavirus outbreak is trapping Chinese designers and fashion folks in the country, the Italian Camera della Moda officially kicked off Milan Fashion Week on Tuesday night with the “China, we are with you” initiative showing the local fashion world’s solidarity with the affected country.
As reported, the project aims to involve members of the Chinese fashion community through live-streaming of the shows on Tencent-owned platforms, including WeChat, dedicated social media platforms, including a brand new Weibo account, and the creation of ad-hoc videos, backstage content and interviews enabling buyers and designers to partake remotely in the fashion experience.
“This initiative was created to share a message of closeness, trust and strength. In a moment of crisis the fashion world has to stay united and build bridges and not walls. We decided to use technology to bring the experience of Milan Fashion Week to the Chinese world,” said Carlo Capasa, president of the Italian fashion chamber.
Further stressing its commitment, the association struck a deal with Chic Group, a real estate developer, financial analyst and brand management consultancy, which has been supporting Chinese designers through its Fashion Town in Xi’an and its network of multibrand stores called Il Parco.

New York Underground Fashion Lives on With SC103

It was the evening after New York Fashion Week had ended, but the road was not yet over for Claire McKinney and Sophie Andes-Gascon of the emerging label SC103.
Last week the design duo showed their sophomore collection in an empty storefront on lower Ludlow Street — where the runway spilled out onto the sidewalk, causing models and errant pedestrians to share the same pavement. It demonstrated McKinney and Andes-Gascon’s willingness to cast themselves outside the established fashion industry.
SC103, named for McKinney and Andes-Gascon’s shared apartment in Clinton Hill in Brooklyn, N.Y., launched with a similarly underground runway show six months ago. The event drew hundreds of downtown creative types and featured artist Bobbi Salvör Menuez, San Francisco creative Jackie Shuya Tan, Café Forgot cofounder Vita Haas and fashion multihyphenate Maryam Nassir Zadeh as models.
Uncertain if they would ever show again, the collection was a now-or-never effort, with the designers parading a bounty of references and techniques that explored elements of femininity and handicraft. This season the same crowd returned to see a thoughtful, more focused collection that was based in shock.
One evening in the months after their last show, McKinney and Andes-Gascon’s apartment caught on fire, destroying most of their

7 Highlights From New York Fashion Week Fall 2020

While the New York Fashion Week fall 2020 schedule lacked a number of major designer brands, the week was still full of memorable moments that sent social media abuzz.
This season, designers’ front rows had a number of viral moments, namely Leslie Jones at Christian Siriano, where videos of the comedian enthusiastically cheering on model Coco Rocha sent social media into a frenzy, and at Brandon Maxwell, where stars from Netflix’s new docu-series, “Cheer,” sat in the front row and gave each model their famous “mat-talk.”
Other designers brought some added star power to their shows, including Miley Cyrus walking at the Marc Jacobs show, Debbie Harry singing at Coach and Orville Peck performing at Michael Kors.
Read on for the seven highlights from New York Fashion Week fall 2020.

Marc Jacobs knows how to end New York Fashion Week with a bang.
Jacobs followed up last season’s show — where he began with the models’ finale walk — by creating a performance art piece for his fall 2020 collection, enlisting 54 dancers that scattered around the stage as groups of models walked in between them.

Ones to Watch at London Fashion Week

LONDON — The city has long attracted international talent, and this season is no exception. The new designers on the London Fashion Week schedule hail from China, the Middle East and Africa and have worked themes as diverse as female empowerment, Japanese woodblock prints and Italian literary classics into their clothing and accessories collections. — Tianwei Zhang
Yuhan Wang
The Chinese designer Yuhan Wang will be opening London Fashion Week on Friday with her first solo show after graduating from Lulu Kennedy’s talent support platform, Fashion East.
A Central Saint Martins graduate, Wang landed a job at Marni while showing with Fashion East. After working in Milan for the brand’s creative director, Francesco Risso, she decided to focus on her own brand. With help from the British Fashion Council, Wang was granted an exceptional talent fashion visa to remain in Britain.
Her solo show will carry on from her previous collections. Expect to see big hats, decadent qipao and hyperfeminine dresses with high-shine, ruched fabrics. Wang has also added some wintry pieces — and more wearable items — based on feedback from buyers.

Faldan Launches at London Fashion Week 

LONDON — Laura Hanning is on a mission to solve every woman’s handbag problem — and muscle in on the Longchamp market — with her newly launched label Faldan during London Fashion Week.
Her foldable, collapsable and stylish leather tote weighs as much as an iPhone, and can fit inside a Chanel mini bag. “I wanted to create a bag that’s not only functional, but looks beautiful and can be used in place of a standard cloth tote bag that doesn’t upset someone’s look,” Hanning said, adding that it needed to be lightweight and easy to store.
Faldan is Hanning’s first fashion venture. Not only is she being mentored by one of the team at Michael Kors, the patent-pending bag has already attracted interest from the likes of the British actress and “Absolutely Fabulous” star Joanna Lumley.
Until recently, Hanning was head of delegation in the UN representing Eastern Europe, including Mongolia and Kazakhstan. “I was helping out these places, but at the same time I felt so detached from them and from the action. So I left because I wanted to do something where I could see the difference and start by answering a very simple problem,” she said.

Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge Selects Winners

Tommy Hilfiger has selected Apon Wellbeing and A Beautiful Mess as winners of the 2019 Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge. The program’s final event took place Thursday at Tommy Hilfiger’s Campus of the Future in Amsterdam, where six finalists pitched their concepts to a jury panel including several social entrepreneur experts and global Hilfiger executives.
More than 400 applications were received for the second edition of the global program, which began in May and aims to support entrepreneurial start-up and scale-up stage businesses developing solutions that promote inclusive and positive change in fashion.
“From start to finish, I have been inspired by this talented group of social entrepreneurs whose innovations are making the fashion landscape more sustainable and inclusive,” said Tommy Hilfger. He noted that the company will continue to mentor and foster the  entrepreneurs.

British Fashion Council Partners With Fashion Zoo for China Amplification

LONDON — The British Fashion Council is still eyeing China, despite the cancellation of its commitment to Shanghai Fashion Week in March due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Fashion Zoo, a Shanghai based business-to-consumer fashion communication and experience platform, will form a three-year partnership with the BFC, strengthening the BFC’s China partnership strategy introduced in November 2018 in Shanghai.
Amy Fan, founder and chief executive officer of Fashion Zoo, said the partnership will “build a new global product launch position and construct a world exchange map of East-West fashion culture.”
Fan also praised London’s creativity and the fact that “London Fashion Week is the first one to open its doors to the public,” which is in line with Fashion Zoo’s consumer-facing offering.
Beginning in September, the BFC will take a number of British designers to Shanghai to take part in the open-to-the-public event and Fashion Zoo in return will bring designers to London to take part in catwalk shows as part of London Fashion Week.
In September 2021, the entities will work together to launch London Fashion Week China Day, a schedule of Chinese designers showing in London as part of the official schedule. The initiatives will take place every September.

Sandy Schreier to Speak With Hamish Bowles About the Art of Collecting Fashion at The Met

Sandy Schreier sure thinks that fashion is art, and she will be making a case for that March 22 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
As part of the “Sunday at The Met” series, Schreier and fellow collector and Vogue’s editor at large Hamish Bowles will discuss the art of collecting fashion. In late November, the Detroit native realized a lifetime dream of staging an exhibition, “Sandy Schreier: In Pursuit of Fashion” at the Upper East Side museum’s Costume Institute. On view through May 17, the show features 80 of the 165 gifts that she has promised to the Costume Institute. Visitors to The Met can take a good look at the numerous never-been-worn couture pieces that she acquired over the years. Valentina, Madeleine Vionnet, the Boué Soeurs, Gabrielle Chanel, Jean Dessès, Gilbert Adrian, Christian Dior, Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo, Maria Monaci Gallenga, Charles James and Lucien Lelong are among the pristine items on view. And Schreier has plenty more stowed away back in Detroit with 15,000 couture pieces in her collection. Next month’s talk will cover how that expansive collection came to be, the work and rarity of some of the underrepresented couturiers and her gift to the museum.

NBA All-Star Weekend Has Become a Fashion Affair

The NBA All-Star Game has become about way more than just basketball — and brands from luxury to food are tapping into it more than ever.
For one thing, the game is no longer just a game, but has become an entire weekend of events, activations, parties and more. The 2020 All-Star Weekend and 69th annual All-Star game in Chicago begins today and stretches through Sunday, when the actual game will be played.
But for companies and brands connected to the National Basketball Association, the game itself is almost an after thought. It’s all the preliminary activities that matter, allowing them to connect with their customer base through sneakers and other memorabilia.
Several brands are launching products and hosting activations over the weekend — many of which will be available exclusively in the Windy City — or opening pop-ups and taking part in the NBA’s Crossover pop-up shop. They include Diamond Supply Co., which is partnering with the NBA for “Space Jam,” marking the first time the league and the basketball-themed film have come together for an official collaboration.
While sneaker launches are customary for All-Star Weekend, the past 10 years have also seen fashion and style play a bigger role among the players

Central Saint Martins MA Fashion Champions Recycling and Craftsmanship

LONDON — Central Saint Martins showcased its best design talents from the class of 2020 MA Fashion course on Friday with a 5G theme flashy high-tech projection sponsored by Three. Yet somehow, the microphone didn’t work during the winner announcement.
Women’s wear designer Sarah McCormack from Dumfries, Scotland and American Chinese designer Leeann Huang stood out from the 21 designers who made it to the graduate show and took home the grand prize L’Oréal Professional Creative Award.
Fabio Piras, course director of Central Saint Martins MA Fashion, said Huang was awarded for the research she went through while McCormack was “a fantastic choice,” as she manages to create couture-level beauty with rejects, all done by hand.
Huang’s graduate collection is a colorful nostalgic trip back to her childhood. “The future seems very bleak to me. Through my research, I was looking at different things that used to make me happy as a child. Mostly through cartoons like ‘The Powerpuff Girls,’ or ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ which painted a very positive feminist future,” she said, adding that she would like to get a job in Europe, and not return to the U.S. and President Trump.

Diesel Joins Fashion Pact

MILAN — Diesel will reveal on Thursday that it has joined the Fashion Pact, taking its commitment to environmental goals one step further.
In January, during Milan Fashion Week Men’s, the Italian fashion group launched its “For Responsible Living” strategy with Eco-Age founder Livia Firth.
The Fashion Pact’s 63 signatories have committed to achieving practical objectives in three areas: climate, biodiversity and oceans.
Renzo Rosso, founder of Diesel and president of its parent company OTB, said, “To change the way we do business, collaboration is key. We have been working with Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana to progress the sustainability conversation in Italy for a long time, but we recognize our industry’s global footprint.”
Rosso added that he was “looking forward to working with these stakeholders who believe that the future of fashion, and of our planet, lies in uniting under a common goal and setting out clear and actionable steps to leave a better world to next generations.”
The “For Responsible Living” strategy rests on four pillars: Be the Alternative, creating alternative and responsible products; Stand for the Planet, committing to climate action by minimizing greenhouse gas emissions, water footprint and improving recycling rates; Celebrate Individuality, developing a sustainability culture within the company, honoring

The Attico to Skip Milan Fashion Week

EXPERIMENTING WITH NEW FORMATS: The Attico is skipping Milan Fashion Week.
On Tuesday, the brand’s founders and creative directors Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio communicated their decision with a personal e-mail, where they also explained their strategy for the season, which they described as an “experiment.”
According to the designers, The Attico fall 2020 collection will be unveiled closer to the time it will hit the stores.
“Instead of the blast of the presentation followed by six months of silence until the clothes get available in the stores, the launch will be immediately followed by the delivery to the shops,” Tordini and Ambrosio wrote in the e-mail. “Communication and sales will be aligned because what we care about most is what women love, do and wear. This move is also part of a global strategy aimed at satisfying our customers in a more organic way.”
According to the brand, the strategy will be unveiled one step at a time to “further engage with the public.”
“Skipping the presentation is not the final solution, it’s just feels right now,” they added. “When The Attico was launched, it was part of the boom of the digital culture. The online is fantastic, but it’s not enough. Experiences are

Phoebe Philo Isn’t Finished With Fashion

Is Phoebe Philo readying a fashion comeback?
According to multiple sources on both sides of the Atlantic, the English designer is planning a new collection and has been interviewing designers. The exact nature and timing of her project could not immediately be learned.
Philo’s name has been mentioned frequently, both in connection with Azzedine Alaïa, and with a signature design project that has an eco slant and an essentials focus.
She did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
One of the most acclaimed designers of her generation, Philo made her name during a 10-year tenure at Celine. Season after season, she minted low-key modernist clothing and handbags and built a intensely loyal fan base.
She spoke to her customers’ desire for comfort and chic — no easy task — and used the likes of Joan Didion and Marie-Agnès Gillot, principal dancer at the Paris Opera Ballet, and older models such as Stella Tennant, in the Celine campaigns.
She also sparked a frenzy for old-school sneakers when she took her runway bow in 2015 shod in a pair of gleaming white Stan Smiths. Even before that, she was spotted in New Balance 574s and Vans, causing her fans to snap up the footwear.

Lela Rose Bakes Up a Storm for New York Fashion Week Presentation

LELA’S ALL-NIGHT BAKERY: In the specter of entertaining, Lela Rose is an overachiever — so why would preparations for her presentation Monday afternoon have been any different?
Apparently, designing a 26-piece collection and opening a pop-up flower store were not enough for the New York designer. She also volunteered her baking skills to ensure that guests got a sampling of her homemade cookies with hand-pressed flowers. Her schedule last week basically amounted to a second job. After a full day’s work, she came home every night to bake for a solid three hours, usually from 9 p.m. until midnight. That drill intensified Saturday with five hours in the kitchen and then nearly a full day at the stove Sunday. “My feet were killing me. I went from fitting the clothes to making the cookies,” Rose said.
Guests stood shoulder-to-shoulder in the Greenwich Avenue shop trying to get a glimpse of the models wearing designs inspired by the Chelsea flower markets. Amidst the forsythia and racks of looks such as a silk satin one-shoulder dress with a turban sleeve and a botanical crepe open-neck dress with delicate crystal details, a table laden with plates of delicate-looking cookies anchored the room.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: An American Fashion Dream

The days leading up to New York Fashion Week are typically a hotbed of activity in studios across New York, designers refining their clothes and distilling the range down to that perfect runway message.
But on Monday, despite the approach of his first full-scale show this morning, at the restaurant Veronika, there was nothing going on at Adam Lippes’ temporary studio on lower Broadway. Nothing that required his oversight, anyway. No castings, no fittings, no sartorial tweaking.
That’s because Lippes wasn’t around. He was 380 miles away in Fort Erie, Ontario, making good on a long-ago, teenaged vow to act as a pallbearer for the gardener of his family’s vacation house.
Lippes hadn’t seen Walker Dekker since 2003, at Lippes’ mother’s funeral, and was surprised by a November call from the man’s nephew, who’d found him on Google: “My uncle would love to hear from you.” Lippes intended to call, but got busy as one does, and didn’t. The nephew got in touch again in mid-January. About two weeks later, on a Sunday, Lippes picked up the phone and reconnected with the man to whom his younger self had been so close. “Remember our vow,” Dekker said. The following Wednesday, he was dead.

L.A. Brand to Watch: Holden Outerwear Boosts Fashion, Women’s

Holden Outerwear has had a few different homes and iterations since it was founded by pro snowboarder Mikey LeBlanc 18 years ago.
But fall 2020 marks a new chapter for the business, now headquartered on Abbot Kinney in Venice, Calif., which has transitioned from purely men’s alpine performance wear to include fashion and a women’s wear proposition.
With a Japanese sensibility, new offerings include mid-weight pieces in stylish proportions and hybrid indoor-outdoor fabrications that can function as street or workout wear, including down puffer jogger pants or shorts; cropped sherpa hoodies; seamless Fair Isle sweaters; hi-loft quilted down kimonos, and oversize, oil-finish metallic parkas with fishtail hems.
Holden will be selling during women’s fashion weeks in New York and Paris for the first time this season.
“We want to be a more stylish Canada Goose and a less status Moncler,” said co-founder and designer Scott Zergebel, emphasizing that in addition to using luxe European textiles, the brand has been eco-conscious from Day One, using recycled cork insulation and trackable down, for example.
“We see the emulation of the technical in traditional fashion,” Le Blanc said of Holden’s potential. “And there are so many large down brands that have been very successful. Now that they are

New York Fashion Week: Men’s Struggles to Survive

New York Fashion Week: Men’s continued its downward spiral this week as the number and caliber of participating brands slid even further.
The official calendar listed only 23 labels over the three days with Todd Snyder and N. Hoolywood the biggest and best-known names. The biggest chunk participated as part of Agentry PR’s New York Men’s Day, where 10 brands were featured.
The anemic calendar drew few retailers — Bergdorf Goodman’s Bruce Pask was the only identifiable merchant spotted in the front row — and top editors were few and far between.
Even so, Steven Kolb, chief executive officer of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, said men’s-only dates will continue to be part of the official calendar going forward. The dates will be in June — as they were last year — at the same time as women’s resort and right after the organization’s annual awards presentation.
But aside from setting the dates, the CFDA is no longer providing any financial support and has pretty much left the decision to show up to the individual brands.
Speaking to WWD at the Todd Snyder show Wednesday night, Kolb said, “It’s just an organic group of shows. We realized after producing shows for four years

MSG to Shine Spotlight on Fashion

MSG Networks is getting fashionable.
The sports broadcaster will kick off a Fashion Week takeover on Monday, featuring a full week of content that will highlight the evolution of fashion in sports and provide an inside look at the styles popular today in the NBA and NHL.
The content will be used on MSG’s linear, digital and social channels for the Knicks, Rangers, Islanders and Devils, the four teams currently playing during New York Fashion Week. It will shine a spotlight on some of the most fashionable athletes on those teams including Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, Devils defenseman P. K. Subban and Knicks guard R.J. Barrett, who will be featured throughout the week showcasing their own personal style, favorite fits and most stylish teammates.
The programming will also include segments on how certain styles have evolved, both on and off the court and ice, and will include the change in jersey designs and the increased attention on pre-game outfits.
MSG Networks on-air talent will also be prominently featured and will include former Knicks player Walt “Clyde” Frazier, whose outrageous outfits catapulted him into one of the NBA’s first fashion icons. Frazier will discuss his personal style, the story behind his “Clyde” nickname, and will

Drops, Collabs and a Faster Fashion Pace Push Première Vision Paris to Change Trade Show Dates

PARIS — Première Vision Paris is getting ahead.
Starting in 2021, both editions of the Paris-based textile show will take place earlier in the year: The spring edition will run from Feb. 2 to 4, 2021 — 10 days earlier than previous iterations — and the fall fair, usually scheduled in the second half of September, will run from July 6 to 8, over two months earlier.
The organizers of Première Vision Paris made the decision following a study conducted in partnership with the Institut Français de la Mode, or IFM, in November and December. It revealed that brands have to tackle material sourcing — one of the first steps in the creation of a collection — a lot earlier to fit with a faster rhythm of production.
Out of the 1,765 brands, designers and retailers who were interviewed — based in France, Germany, the U.K. and Italy, the five countries that account for 75 percent of apparel sales in Europe — only 49 percent of them stick to the seasonal tradition of commercializing two ready-to-wear collections a year.
“As a matter of comparison, there were 63 percent of them during our previous study in 2015,” said Gilles Lasbordes, general manager of Première Vision Paris,

9 New York Fashion Week Events That Are Open to the Public

The New York Fashion Week fall 2020 collections might be lacking a few major designers from its calendar, but a number of public NYFW events are bringing some added buzz to the six-day affair.

Netflix’s “Next in Fashion” fashion competition show will premiere Jan. 29.
Hosted by Tan France (“Queer Eye”) and designer/model Alexa Chung, it has contestants competing for a $ 250,000 prize and a chance to have their collection sold on Net-a-porter. Guest judges include Hollywood stylist Elizabeth Stewart, Instagram’s Eva Chen and Net-a-porter’s global buying director Elizabeth von der Goltz.
“We’ve always been huge supporters of emerging designers…and this fits into that,” said von der Goltz, speaking to WWD exclusively about the shopping platform’s partnership with the show, and mentioning Net-a-porter’s The Vanguard program for emerging designers as a parallel. “Everything today is experiential and fashion fits into that perfectly. And us being digital, the way we communicate is online…streaming fits into who we are as a retailer.”
Discovering up-and-coming talent has become a commodity for shoppers, she added of the show’s appeal. “Our EIPs, our top customers, are super savvy, and they have power brands they will always wear, but they also want to be seen in a brand not everyone knows,” von der Goltz said, noting that she has bought brands that have never shown at a fashion week after finding them on Instagram, and that streaming is just another channel for discovering

Telekom Fashion Fusion, AlphaTauri and Schoeller to Debut App-Controlled Heat-Regulating Jacket

POWERING UP: Today’s launch of the Heatable Capsule Collection is an example of what happens when three forces collide. Telekom Fashion Fusion, Red Bull’s AlphaTauri fashion label and Schoeller Textil AG pooled their brain power to introduce technological innovation for what amounts to self-regulating garments. Telekom took care of the app that controls the jacket’s temperature, AlphaTauri handled the design and Schoeller developed the heating technologies, fabrics and electronic components. Consumers decide what level of warmth that they would like for the jacket or the gilet. The clothing is operated by an app that allows the wearer to heat zones near the pocket and kidney areas.
Collectively, they are trying to appeal to the tech-savvy urban explorer. Schoeller, the Switzerland-based company that dates back to 1868, developed E-Soft-Shell heating technology that is integrated into the fabric, and is what the company describes as localized as close as possible to the wearer’s body. In addition, sensors can measure the jackets’ microclimate. Essentially, the apparel’s warmth is generated by the heatable fabric lining with a network of conducive yarns. If heating is not needed, the integrated power bank can be used to charge a smartphone, while the wearer is on the run.

Amazon Shoppable Fashion Competition Series ‘Making the Cut’ Announces Premiere Date

Will the future of fashion be streaming?
Maybe. Several shows combining fashion, storytelling and digital commerce are launching in the coming months.
On Tuesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., Amazon announced its new fashion competition series, “Making the Cut,” will premiere March 27.
“We are excited to be able to produce a show that really looks for the next global brand…and create the situation where [designers] are set up for success when they leave us,” said executive producer Sara Rea.
Former “Project Runway” host Heidi Klum and mentor Tim Gunn lead the cast, with Naomi Campbell, Carine Roitfeld, Joseph Altuzarra and Nicole Richie as guest judges.
The program brings together 12 entrepreneurs and designers from around the world who are competing for a $ 1 million prize and the chance to turn their fledgling businesses into global brands.

Alessandro Michele on Obsessions, Defying Fashion Rules

MILAN — Alessandro Michele shuns boredom and while his debut collection for Gucci was unveiled only five years ago this month, shaking up the industry in more ways than one, he’s ready to reshuffle things.
Speaking to the designer at the sprawling Gucci Hub here ahead of the brand’s return to a men’s-only show today, the five-year anniversary seems to have particular meaning for Michele, who back in January 2015 boldly laid out Gucci’s new aesthetic, introducing a romantic, somewhat quirky and genderless streak in men’s wear that has defined the designer’s path throughout the brand. The invitation is a retro card in a child’s handwriting to a “fifth birthday rave.”
When in 2016 Michele decided to unify Gucci’s shows into a coed format starting in 2017, he explained it as “only natural,” although the move shook up Milan’s fashion calendar and influenced a slew of other designers. Now he’s splitting them again, perhaps spurring a reassessment of coed shows among other designers.
Another change is signaled by Michele’s decision this season to move out of the Gucci Hub and bring the show to the Palazzo delle Scintille, a former Twenties velodrome turned into an exhibition space.

FGF Industry Introduces B+Plus Line During Milan Fashion Week

MILAN — FGF Industry SpA, the Italian outerwear specialist owned by designer-entrepreneur Enzo Fusco, introduced Blauer USA’s premium line B+Plus during Milan Fashion Week.
“This is more than a capsule collection, we really indulged in a special, upscale offering,” said Fusco, who is president of the company and creative director of Blauer USA. He underscored that the launch aligns with FGF Industry’s 20th anniversary, “so we thought this was the right moment to debut a new line — we deserved it.”
Presented through an installation staged at the city’s hip Moebius restaurant, the collection showcased 16 genderless down jackets tailored to provide comfort and water, wind and heat resistance. A trait d’union among the different styles was a “mobile light hole,” a removable pocket on the upper-left-hand side of each jacket featuring a dark lens where a mobile phone or flashlight can be placed for hands-free visibility.

To further enhance the functionality, all styles featured a removable inner made of recycled down padding that can also be worn separately, making each piece a two-in-one model adaptable to different climate conditions.

Berlin Fashion Week Relaunches With New Venue, South African Talents

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin is relaunching on Monday with a new and larger venue at the Kraftwerk, a power station-converted event space in central Berlin.
South African designers Clive Rundle, Floyd Avenue, Rich Mnisi and Viviers will stage a group show as part of Mercedes-Benz’s talent exchange program to kickstart the three-day fashion event. Some 16 designers — such as Odeeh, Last Heirs, Nobi Talai and Kilian Kerner’s Kxxk — will debut their fall 2020 collection on the runway.
The group show also marks the 25th anniversary of Mercedes-Benz’s commitment to fashion. The company sponsors Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weeks in Australia; Mexico; Madrid; Tbilisi, Georgia; and Berlin, as well as the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories in Hyères, France.
“Democratizing the fashion week” is another key element to the relaunch, according to Katja Ohly-Nauber, a spokeswoman from Mercedes-Benz Germany.
“We are excited to open our doors to consumers and the general public, in addition to leading industry figures, to interact with designers and experience many of the exhibitions and presentations,” Ohly-Nauber added.
Since Mercedes-Benz parted from its original production partner IMG three years ago, there have been talks about the need for change in the German fashion scene, as WWD reported. Despite little

Moore From L.A.: 2020s Fashion Predictions: Synthetic Stylists, Stilettos by Drone, Chanel AR Glasses

I’ve seen drones hovering over fashion runways, “dancing” over Coachella crowds, and buzzing my backyard. But in my most “Legally Blonde” moments, I’ve often wondered when a drone could do something truly useful to me: deliver shoes. Ha! Why, I thought, can’t I order up a few pairs from Nordstrom, have them flown over, keep the one I like and send the rest back, all without leaving my desk?
Well, that fashion fantasy and more could come true in the 2020s with the next generation of tech giving us even more opportunities to shop faster with AI and data-mined precision, including browsing “the real world” through smart glasses, and stocking our closet with the help of a “synthetic stylist.”
“The era of fashion and technology becoming inextricably intertwined is upon us,” said Amy Webb, chief executive officer of Future Today Institute.
At the same time, concern about the climate and sustainability is feeding anticonsumerism sentiment and global protest movements. That has also spurred innovation; the rental and resale sectors are booming, and bio-materials (in 2019, Central Saint Martins launched the first master’s course in bio-design), and digital clothing (Louis Vuitton has already designed skins for Riot Games’ “League of Legends” and Moschino for

JFK Airport Not Done With Fashion Shows Yet

With previous destinations including the Eiffel Tower and Seine River in Paris, the Hoover Dam and a New York City skyline show, model-turned-show-producer Jessica Minh Anh, in partnership with DHL Express, will present her next fashion show at JFK.
The next rendition of her “Fashion x Sustainability Series” is coming to the John F. Kennedy Gateway in February, but Minh Anh wouldn’t be the first to select JFK as an elixir for fashion’s in-crowd, trends and innovative designs. Under creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton showed its 2020 resort collection at the TWA Hotel at New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport in May.
DHL is not an unlikely partner to Minh Anh, as just this August, the logistics company sponsored the DHL Logistics in Fashion award with the CFDA. This was the second year in a row.
She maintains the goal to highlight “the modern upcycling and delivery process in a creative way.”
“From optimizing transport routes and rolling out alternative fuel vehicles, to operating energy efficiency warehouses, DHL is reducing transport-related CO2 emissions,” said Minh Anh in a press statement.
The official list of designer participants is to be announced, but meanwhile, Minh Anh can be seen sporting haute couture looks from

Decoding Genderless Fashion, the Future of the Industry

“Unisex,” the industry’s buzzword and symbol for inclusion and diversity, is now more mainstream thanks to brands casting male and female models for their look books and designers casting a broader spectrum of genders for their fashion shows. But with the advent of unisex collections comes a myriad of questions. For one, what makes a collection unisex? Also, where does it fit in a store or web site?
Few retailers, brands and designers are ready for this movement. Inhabit launched its first genderless collection last fall, Norma Kamali changed her storied brand to a unisex label last year, Umit Benan launched unisex line B+ and Equipment is launching a gender-fluid collection in spring 2020.
Nicopanda, Gypsy Sport and Charles Jeffrey Loverboy are among brands cited as genderless labels, as well as streetwear firms Aries and Les Tien, and Huemn, the Indian ready-to-wear brand and Vogue India Fashion Fund winner that offers gender non-binary pieces on its web site. Stefano Pilati introduced fluid men’s wear line Random Identities in 2018, which will be one of the guest presenters at Pitti Uomo, and newer designers such as Mowalola Ogunlesi and Barbara Sanchez-Kane create fluid men’s wear offerings for their respective labels.

Looking to the Future of Fashion

The spring 2020 shows proved that the men’s wear landscape continues to evolve and become more experimental as definitions of gender and codes of masculinity morph and change.
From oversize and voluminous silhouettes, to an explosion of graphics, various shades of pastels, and even a return to a clean and minimalistic wardrobe, here is a round-up of the most prominent trends for spring 2020.

Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring Fashion Show, Which Emphasizes Sustainability, Will Be Presented in London

Tommy Hilfiger is headed back to London to stage his spring 2020 fashion show.
The company will show its fourth Tommy x Lewis collaboration with race car driver Lewis Hamilton, alongside the spring 2020 Hilfiger Collection for women and men, at the Tanks at Tate Modern on Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. GMT during London Fashion Week.
Hilfiger initially teamed with Hamilton, the six-time FIA Formula One World Drivers’ Champion, as global brand ambassador in March 2018, and showed the first Tommy x Lewis collaboration on the runway in Shanghai on Sept. 4, 2018. They also held a presentation with models in Milan last September. Both were dual gender.
For the past two seasons in the women’s category, Hilfiger has collaborated with Zendaya for the Tommy x Zendaya collection, which ended with the fall 2019 collection. Earlier, Hilfiger had a collaboration with Gigi Hadid, who partnered on four collections from September 2016 through February 2018. These collaborations  generated huge spikes in traffic and billions of social media impressions.
For the upcoming London show, Hilfiger will acknowledge the sustainability advancements of the Tommy x Lewis line, with more than 75 percent of the styles in the spring 2020 Tommy x Lewis collection using more sustainable

Jackie Chan’s Latest Stunt Is a Fashion Range

In what is surely one of the New Year’s most unexpected fashion collaborations, Chinese activewear brand Li-Ning is doing a martial-arts-inspired capsule collection with Jackie Chan, WWD has learned.
It is to be unveiled at the Li-Ning fashion show in Paris on Jan. 18 at the Centre Pompidou, kicking off a three-year sponsorship of the famous art museum — with the affable action film star in attendance.
The Beijing-based firm confirmed both projects exclusively to WWD as the brand marks 30 years in business and enjoys strong momentum amid an international expansion push.
Founded by its namesake, a champion gymnast boasting 106 gold medals, Li-Ning initially set out to provide Chinese athletes with a domestic brand to wear to the Olympics and ultimately grew to a publicly traded company with 2018 revenues of 10.51 billion renminbi, or $ 1.51 billion, and a market capitalization of 54 billion renminbi, or $ 7.75 billion. Its share price zoomed about 185 percent over the past year on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, fueled by the growing popularity of sports apparel and patriotic consumerism amid China’s spat with the NBA, according to equity analysts.
Li, executive chairman and joint chief executive officer, said the collaboration with Chan grew out of

Where Some See Disabilities, Alivia Sees Art for Fashion

Jovana Mullins, a Parsons School of Design graduate and alumnus of brands such as Alice + Olivia, Coach and Sam Edelman, felt the need to feed her soul, and left the latter after three years to do more nonprofit work. Teaching art therapy to developmentally disabled youths and young adults at New York’s Center for All Abilities, she was amazed by the raw talent and untapped potential of the autistic participants.
“I was blown away by their art and their talent,” she said. “You see these kids, some of whom can’t speak, and the way they express themselves through art blew my mind. I’ve been an embroidery designer throughout my whole career. I immediately envisioned their art on a ready-to-wear collection. It’s a no-brainer. As a print designer trying to create as much inclusion as possible, this is an exciting challenge.”
Mullins teamed with her husband, Brandon, who leveraged his business background to develop the brand. Alivia is 100 percent self-funded by the Mullins’ savings.

Fashion Represents Italy in the OOOM 100 List

IN THE NAME OF FASHION: Fashion helps bolster Italy’s reputation, according to German magazine OOOM.
The publication this week released its list of the world’s 100 most influential people.
Teenage activist Greta Thunberg, actress and environmental activist Jane Fonda and former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama lead the ranking — as they have on other international magazines. OOOM’s list, though, also includes personalities such as Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin, North American soccer player Megan Rapinoe, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as Pope Francis II.
Italy is represented by three of the most influential key figures on the international fashion scene: Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, Miuccia Prada and Renzo Rosso.

In particular, Rosso was included on the list for his commitment to the creation of new living standards, as he showcased during Miami Art Basel with the unveiling of the Diesel Wynwood residential project, including 143 apartments, a pool, a gym, a meditation room, a meeting space and an expansive, open-space lobby with an art gallery area, as well as a courtyard, designed by Diesel as a forest of tropical plants for residents.

All the Kardashian-Jenner-West Fashion and Beauty Brands in the Works

Given the sheer number — and popularity — of the Kardashian-Jenner-West family’s fashion and beauty brands, they’ve proven they are a force to be reckoned with outside the entertainment arena, building businesses that compete with the biggest brands in the market. And they’re only just getting started.
In 2019, the reality TV clan marked significant milestones for their respective businesses — most notably Kylie Jenner selling a majority stake of her Kylie Cosmetics brand to Coty Inc. for $ 600 million — and they also laid down the groundwork to continue expanding their empires by filing a number of new fashion and beauty trademarks.
From Kendall Jenner’s first beauty venture to the youngest of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s children getting in on the family business, here are all the Kardashian-Jenner-West fashion and beauty brands in the works.

Decoding the Tens: Fashion Industry Weighs In

As the Tens draw to a close and the Twenties get ready to dawn, WWD casts an eye on the dizzying amount of change the last decade has brought to the fashion scene — including streetwear’s rise; a growing voice from younger — much younger — generations; the blurring of gender lines, and a rising environmental awareness, not to mention the indelible mark left by the #MeToo movement.
It was a tumultuous period, with the recasting of old orders by technology, which took a central role in rearranging the era’s priorities.
WWD turned to industry figures, including retailers, historians, curators and trend forecasters, to sift through the Tens, and decide what defined them, fashion wise.
What was the look of the decade? Who was the designer of the era? And how about the future: Will the Twenties roar again?
Strong mentions for the decade’s standout look included Demna Gvasalia’s oversize imprint at Balenciaga, the gender-bending baroque aesthetic from Alessandro Michele at Gucci, the recasting of women’s wardrobes by Phoebe Philo at Celine and Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior and the arrival of Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton. The reign of the sneaker made a mark. Some wondered, is Hedi Slimane the new Karl Lagerfeld?

No. 7: American Fashion Flushed With Challenges

Two thousand nineteen was a tumultuous year for American fashion, and a telling one. While major European luxury brands garnered reams of media attention, its denizens often registering seemingly limitless growth, the U.S. designer world operated in a state of traumatic flux, its shifting fortunes reflected in a diminished collective global profile and a number of major-name shifts and closures.
In fact, American fashion has been challenged for some time, a reality many of its participants acknowledged when WWD surveyed them in September 2018. But it all came together in a stunning whirl this year, with a series of touchstone events that brought into sharp focus the struggle of American businesses to compete at the luxury level.
Arguably, the company that experienced the most upheaval this year was Calvin Klein Inc., following the abrupt departure in December of Raf Simons, chief creative officer, over differences in brand direction. Simons’ avant garde designs and rocky tenure were a huge and costly experiment — a $ 240 million debacle — for the Calvin Klein business.
Following the split with Simons, CKI exited the Collection business, shuttered its Madison Avenue flagship (which went from minimal to maximal in a yellow makeover), closed its Milan office, laid off

No. 2: Karl Lagerfeld Changed the Fashion Industry Forever

He was so prolific, indefatigable, larger-than-life and multifaceted that the fashion world does not feel the same without Karl Lagerfeld.
He brought energy, boldness and a rare rock-star charisma, and seemed to galvanize Paris as the creative heart of fashion.
Since his death last February at age 85, the industry has mourned, mounted tributes, planned books and exhibitions, and pondered all the wisdom to be gleaned from one of the pioneers of brand rejuvenation, high-low collaborations and multitasking — and a master of storytelling, showmanship and witty repartee.
By all accounts, he left the brands he piloted in fine fettle — recognizing early that brands matter most, not the designers behind them. Chanel is now led by his longtime right-hand woman Virginie Viard, who is staying the course while adding a youthful elan. Fendi, now unofficially piloted creatively by Silvia Venturini Fendi and her Rome-based team, is said to be growing at a healthy and stealthy 10 percent clip.
Meanwhile, Lagerfeld’s namesake house brought on renowned stylist and editor Carine Roitfeld to work in tandem with design director Hun Kim, who had been handpicked by Lagerfeld and has been working quietly behind the scenes since August 2015. And sales have been flourishing in 2019.

Copenhagen Fashion Summit Announces H&M CEO as First Speaker

Copenhagen Fashion Summit has revealed H&M’s chief executive officer Karl-Johan Persson as a speaker for the upcoming Copenhagen Fashion Summit, billed as “Redesigning Growth.” The event is produced by the nonprofit Global Fashion Agenda.
Last May, the two-day Copenhagen Fashion Summit saw 1,300 attendees. Speakers were from brands such as Nike, PVH Corp. and Adidas, and included individuals like the vocal London-based designer and first proponent for the political (organic cotton) T-shirt, Katharine Hamnett.
Persson will be joined in conversation by Vanessa Friedman, fashion director of The New York Times, to address how “high-street brands can rethink the current fashion business model.”
Eva Kruse, chief executive officer of Global Fashion Agenda, organizer of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, expressed her enthusiasm in a statement: “I’m thrilled that Karl-Johan Persson will be joining us at the 2020 Summit, which will delve into the theme Redesigning Growth. A vast amount of people are unable to afford luxury fashion, so finding solutions to produce sustainable fashion for the masses is crucial.”
She added that the group “has been spearheading sustainability in fashion for more than a decade,” and due to its global recognition (ranking in the top global apparel manufacturers and retailers by revenue), the company will play

7 Fashion Trends That Helped Define the 2010s

When it comes to fashion trends that shaped the 2010s, dad jeans, sneakers and logo-laden everything come to mind.
Fashion in the 2010s was underscored by a range of subcultures that met the world stage, from normcore to Gen Z Internet culture (VSCO Girls, anyone?). On another, far more formal plane, the British royal family’s popularity experienced an apotheosis not seen since the days of the late Princess Diana, as Kate and Meghan have taken after their late mother-in-law’s fashion icon status.
But while logomania, ath-leisure and the occasional fascinator led the decade style-wise, the fashion industry itself experienced profound cultural shifts over the last 10 years, that spurred marked change in terms of larger issues including inclusivity, diversity and sustainability across the board.
As the 2010s come to a close, WWD looks at the seven fashion trends that defined the decade.
