Copenhagen Fashion Week to Go Ahead in August

LONDON — Copenhagen Fashion Week has confirmed its decision to go ahead with its spring 2021 showcase this August.
The event will go ahead on Aug. 9 and run through Aug. 12, a week later than originally scheduled.
The decision, which was taken alongside some of the event’s key trade show partners such as CIFF and Revolver, was based on the early easing of lockdown measures in Denmark.
“We’re fortunate that the Danish society is opening up much more quickly than expected, making it possible for us to hold Copenhagen Fashion Week very close to the originally scheduled dates. All of our activities will be set up to meet applicable regulatory requirements,” said Cecilie Thorsmark, chief executive officer of Copenhagen Fashion Week.
“We’ve received immense support from the Scandinavian fashion industry, as Copenhagen Fashion Week continues to be an important and much-needed platform for the industry’s sales, exports and international collaborations. Maintaining the dates in the beginning of August is a decisive advantage for them,” she added.
The schedule of participating designers is still to be confirmed, but some of the city’s buzzy labels, including Stine Goya, have said they will be opting out of hosting physical fashion shows in order to shift their focus to

Afterpay Launches Fund-raising Effort to Help Fashion Industry, Those in Need

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the fashion industry and its 1.8 million workers, Afterpay said this week that it is teaming with two organizations to help those in need. The “buy now, pay later,” solution provider said the goal is to help industry entrepreneurs and businesses as well as individuals “rebound from the virus impact.” Afterpay said it was partnering with ​A Common Thread​, a philanthropic effort involving Vogue and the CFDA, and ​Baby2Baby​, “which provides children living in poverty with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves,” Afterpay said in a statement.
Afterpay’s initiative allows shoppers who use Afterpay “to ‘top-up’ their purchases by adding a $ 1 donation” to ​A Common Thread​ and ​Baby2Baby,” the company said, adding that these two organization are the “top-up” program’s initial launch partners. Separately, Afterpay said it has also committed to “donating more than $ 200,000 to several COVID-19 related charities around the world, including ​A Common Thread​ and ​Baby2Baby.”
Afterpay said it choose these two organizations for the launch of its program because of “their strong contributions to helping our community recover from this challenging economic climate.” Afterpay said grants that are made by A Common Thread​ are being

How Fashion and Beauty Brands Are Giving Back for Pride Month 2020

Although the coronavirus pandemic has canceled virtually all in-person Pride Month events, fashion and beauty brands are continuing their commitments to give back and support the LGBTQ+ community.
Several brands are creating rainbow-themed Pride collections to donate proceeds to global organizations supporting the LGBTQ+ community, including GLAAD, the Trevor Project and the It Gets Better Project.
Others are launching larger initiatives to highlight the importance of Pride Month, including makeup brand NYX, which is hosting a virtual Pride March on Instagram, and activewear brand Under Armour, which is offering a grant program to aid LGBTQ+-focused nonprofits that are impacted by COVID-19.
Here, WWD looks at 20 fashion and beauty brands that are giving back for Pride Month 2020.
1. ASOS

Asos is teaming with GLAAD for the fourth year in a row to collaborate on a Pride-themed collection. This year’s collection centers on the theme of unity, with several graphic T-shirts sporting the word in a rainbow colorway. Other pieces include button-up tops, shorts and sweatshirts ranging in price from $ 29 to $ 69. All proceeds from the collection will benefit GLAAD.

The Top 10 Most Followed Fashion and Beauty Brands on TikTok

Over the last four years, TikTok has skyrocketed in popularity among the Gen Z demographic, who use the social media platform to record videos dancing to today’s most popular music or participate in different TikTok challenges.
As the coronavirus pandemic has drastically increased social media usage across the board, TikTok has also seen a jump in its user base. According to Sensor Tower, a mobile app data provider, TikTok saw 315 million downloads during the first quarter of 2020, the biggest download count in the app’s history. This brings TikTok’s total download count to two billion.
TikTok doesn’t plan to slow down its growth. The social media platform last month revealed the creation of its $ 5 million Creative Learning Fund, which WWD is participating in, that is growing the app’s original content.
Despite this recent surge in users, many fashion and beauty brands were early adopters of the app. Take Ralph Lauren, which launched its TikTok account last August in conjunction with its campaign for the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament. Other brands are creating dedicated initiatives solely for the app, such as Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty, which launched a TikTok House where a rotating roster of influencers create content for the brand.

5 Summer 2020 Fashion Collaborations to Watch Out For

With the coronavirus pandemic causing what’s expected to be a socially distant summer, several fashion brands are trying to add some excitement to the season with collaborations.
One of the most anticipated fashion collaborations is coming from Target, which is continuing its tradition of teaming with buzzy designers. This summer the retailer is tapping three female-led fashion labels — LoveShackFancy, Cushnie and Lisa Marie Fernandez — for a summer dress collection that evokes the feminine style each brand is known for.
As at home workouts are on the rise amid the COVID-19 quarantine, other brands are launching activewear collections that combine fashion with function. Take Staud designer Sarah Staudinger, who is making her first entry into activewear with a colorful collection with New Balance.

Virgin Hotels Dallas to Use Fashion to Dress Up Social Distancing

CHECK IN, CHECK OUT FASHION: Ingenuity may be the takeaway from the pandemic for many creatives and businesses, and Virgin Hotels Dallas appears to be part of that group.
With the help of fashion consultant Kristen Cole, the property will unveil “Together Again: Reconnecting Through Fashion and Art” on Friday. The installation will feature designs by Christopher John Rogers, Rosie Assoulin, Marina Moscone and milliner Gigi Burris, among others. Cole also turned to Archive Vintage for a few finds, like an Adolfo silk skirt and blouse.
There will be 12 mannequins styled in vignettes in public spaces throughout the hotel. The mannequins will be showcased six feet apart to adhere to social distancing rules.
Located in the Dallas Design District, the Virgin Hotel’s initiative is meant to merge fashion and art, according to Cole. She selected the designers, Archive Vintage and the artists based on relationships and appreciation for their work. There is no current plan for a retail tie-in, a spokeswoman said.
As of now, the Dallas hotel is the only one of the Virgin Hotels properties that is planning this, a spokeswoman said. There will also be new works of art such as surreal fashion photographs by Manolo Campion, a graphic vinyl

Harlem’s Fashion Row to Launch Nonprofit to Help Designers

With scores of designers in need of financial assistance due to the coronavirus shutdown, Harlem’s Fashion Row is planning to launch a nonprofit titled Icon360.
The kickoff “virtual fundraiser” event is set for May 30 and aims to raise funds for designers of color. Candidates will be able to apply for Icon360 grants starting June 15.
The online event will feature an assortment of speakers, including designers Christopher John Rogers and Tracy Reese, as well as stylist Kesha McLeod and the National Basketball Association’s senior vice president of diversity and inclusion Liliahn Majeed.

This Year’s Met Gala Is Called Off; ‘About Time: Fashion and Duration’ Still On

NO GALA THIS YEAR: After months of speculation that this year’s Met Gala would be canceled, museum officials on Tuesday confirmed there will be no event in 2020.
The decision is part of an overall plan that includes the cancellation of talks, tours, concerts and events at The Met through the end of this year. The nixed plans are in line with the need to provide an environment that provides social distancing. The Met Gala and the other events are expected to be resumed by the museum next year. That will include a belated celebration of the museum’s 150th anniversary, according to a statement.
The 2021 gala will be focused on next year’s exhibition at the Costume Institute, which has not yet been revealed, according to a Met spokeswoman. In March, organizers indicated that they hoped to hold the 2020 Met Gala at a later date.
There is also the likelihood of reduced museum hours when the Met reopens. In accordance with New York state’s phased plan for reopening the city, the Metropolitan Museum of Art now plans to reopen in mid-August or perhaps a few weeks later. When the public returns to the museum, The Met will debut “Making the Met: 1870-2020.”

Like many others in the industry, fashion p.r. agencies have had to pivot operations and adapt under lockdown. The new normal has given rise to digital press days, where new collections and product launches are highlighted on Instagram instead of physical showrooms, with trends easier to decipher as assets are all in one place.
From the most recent digital press days, stripes have emerged as a bold classic for fall 2020. Whether consumers will gravitate toward minimalist or maximalist dress once lockdown measures are lifted, stripes are a safe middle ground. Here, examples from Ganni, Acne Studios and Mozh Mozh.

Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week Plans ‘Phygital’ Event for September

Upended by the coronavirus outbreak, Fira de Barcelona, the organizer of Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week revealed Friday it is further postponing the dates of its upcoming trade show and collateral events.
In sync with other international fashion events, organizers added that the bridalwear fair will combine the physical event with a number of digital initiatives, in order to maximize its exhibitors’ business opportunities.
Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week – which was originally slated to take place in April and subsequently moved to June 8 to 14 – will now be held Sept. 4 to 10. The decision comes after the Spanish government announced early Friday that travel restrictions to the country have been pushed ahead to June 15.
Exhibitors will be able to take part in the showcase physically or leverage a digital platform provided by Fira de Barcelona to present their latest bridal collections. Described as a “flexible hybrid model,” the new format is aimed at securing attendance by international buyers, media outlets and influencers, who might not be able to travel.

Graduate Fashion Week Outlines New Support Initiatives for Fashion Graduates

LONDON — This year’s Graduate Fashion Week, typically held in London during the first weekend of June, had to be canceled due to the coronavirus crisis, but the charitable organization is introducing a series of digital alternatives to continue engaging design students both from the U.K. and abroad.
The aim was to create initiatives with a more flexible time scale and in line with the new social distancing rules. GFW also had to bear in mind the limited access to resources that this year’s graduates had to grapple with when completing their final-year projects.
GFW’s annual awards, which feature catwalk shows, have been reimagined with four new accolades for design students: Fashion Concept, Fashion Illustration, Fashion Range Plan and Technical Drawing awards.
A fifth Adaptation Award will be given to a student who demonstrated the most “resourcefulness and problem-solving skills” during this time.

The winners are the Sudanese designer Omer Asim, who received the ready-to-wear category; Ammanii, who won in the jewelry category; footwear designer Andrea Wazen, who was named accessories designer of the year, and Yousef Akbar, who took home the award in the dedicated eveningwear category, while the new Franca Sozzani Award for emerging talent was given to Zeid Hijazi.
The designers were chosen from 25 finalists by a judging committee that included the likes of Christian Louboutin, Yoon Ambush, Diane von Furstenberg, Alber Elbaz, Elizabeth Salzman and Olivier Rousteing, all of whom met the designers via a series of Zoom conferences held last month.

Virgil Abloh Questions the Future of Fashion in New Video

Is fashion still relevant? That’s the question on Virgil Abloh’s mind.
The Off-White and Louis Vuitton men’s designer posed to his Instagram followers on Monday in a stream of consciousness-like video. Abloh himself feels that it is still relevant, but used the three minute, 55 second video captioned “I think in run-on sentences” to counter his own belief.
Abloh names several muses and sources of inspiration behind his designs to present his argument in the video, which shows scenes from his past collections. His voiceover starts the video by stating his Louis Vuitton collection was “a matter of my call and response to what is luxury clothing — not fashion — so my investigation was at the root of clothing and a human desire.”
In the video, Abloh touches on his own design process, stating “it’s sort of this matrix of using the DNA of a vocabulary I started in, but sending it into the time of the season.” He also states that other artistic professions, such as writer, architect or musician, can work in similar ways and that he’s inspired by the thought process behind creations rather than the relationship to the work.

A Look Back at Michael Jordan’s Pivotal Fashion and Beauty Deals

Michael Jordan has long been a legendary figure in the cultural lexicon, but the acclaimed former NBA player is again in the spotlight thanks to his highly successful ESPN documentary series, “The Last Dance.”
Jordan has as much resonance on the basketball court as he does in the fashion industry due to his Jordan brand created with Nike, which has shaped up to be one of the most successful and long-standing relationships between an athlete and a fashion label. When the two teamed in 1984, Nike predicted $ 3 million in sales of Air Jordan sneakers within four years. Those sales projections were highly modest to say the least when year one sales alone totaled $ 126 million.
“The Last Dance” has also boosted Jordan sneaker sales in the resale market, with The RealReal seeing a 53 percent week-over-week increase in the shoes’ average selling price and StockX seeing searches increase by 63 percent and orders spike by 90 percent since the series premiered in mid-April.
In addition to his Nike collaboration, Jordan has also worked with apparel brand Hanes for 30 years. The company celebrated the anniversary last year by releasing special trading cards in 800,000 packages of its boxer briefs signed by Jordan himself.

Michelle Obama Netflix ‘Becoming’ Documentary Spotlights Her Fashion, Too

The documentary spin-off of Michelle Obama’s best-selling memoir “Becoming” hit Netflix on Wednesday. In addition to chronicling the former first lady’s 34-city book tour, family history, relationship history with husband, Barack, her circle of confidantes, and intimate encounters mentoring young people, the film also addresses her famous fashion sense.
Even before Barack Obama was elected president, Michelle made headlines for her fashion choices, choosing to wear looks by such independent American designers as Narciso Rodriguez and Thakoon Panichgul. Once in office, she put Jason Wu on the map, when she chose the young designer to make her inaugural gown, and her support of the industry continued during the two presidential terms, when she hosted a fashion education workshop at the White House. She also had the power to move lower-priced clothing from J. Crew, Talbots and Target, which she mixed into her wardrobe alongside her signature Azzedine Alaïa belts and Lanvin sneakers, inspiring women to copy her looks.
One of the first things you notice in the film is Obama’s powder blue manicure, as well as her “Becoming” nameplate necklace. Brother Craig Robinson teases her at one point about one of her wide belts. “Is that the style now?” he asks. There

Fashion Consultant Launches Online Index for Filipino Creatives

Jan Vincent Gonzales wants to help Filipino creatives taking a hit from the coronavirus.
Gonzales, who formed his eponymous global consultancy in 2019, is launching Mercado Vicente, an online index of multidisciplinary creatives, including illustrators, fashion designers, tattoo artists, photographers, filmmakers, graphic designers, glass artists, painters and architects. Through Mercado Vicente, Gonzales hopes to combat the current anti-Asian sentiment by highlighting the works of Filipino creatives, many of whom are now unemployed due to COVID-19.
“As an agency, since everything was so focused on community-driven events that were in-person, we lost a lot of our business and activations from [coronavirus],” Gonzales said. “We tried out the live videos and it had its pickup, but I felt there needed to be more of a sense of solidarity, not just from the people in our immediate community, but also globally because of all of the things in the news in terms of anti-Asian racism.”

NFL Draft Picks Attempt Fashion Moments From Home

The NFL held the first round of its first virtual NFL Draft on Thursday night, which turned out to be history-making moments for young prospects and a showcase of home outfits.
The NFL Draft has often been a sports fashion affair, alongside the NBA All-Star Weekend, NBA Draft and the Espy Awards. But how do young prospects have a fashionable introduction to the pro football world when they’re stuck at home?
Some received help from brands including 2019 Heisman Trophy winner and Cincinnati Bengals draft pick Joe Burrow, who wore a Nike custom ‘740’ long sleeve T-shirt from his home in Athens, Ohio. Top prospect and Miami Dolphins pick Tua Tagovailoa opted for a custom suit by Richards Bespoke in Nashville that sported a lining featuring photos of his grandparents.
Others went casual, like Arizona Cardinals pick Isaiah Simmons, who wore a T-shirt bearing KAWS artwork (family members wore similar shirts). Former Alabama wide receiver and Las Vegas Raiders pick Henry Ruggs III opted not to dress up, appearing on TV in a bathrobe for a partnership with Old Spice.
The polar opposite was Jeff Okudah. The Detroit Lions pick wore a Thom Browne outfit for the NFL Draft, but it wasn’t the look

Netflix Show ‘Narcos’ To Become a Fashion Brand

The worlds of entertainment and fashion seem to be growing ever closer.
French film studio Gaumont has partnered with e-commerce platform Dropdaze to spin off a designer brand from the Netflix crime drama, “Narcos Los Angeles,” which was just renewed for season 5.
The brand will include men’s designer fashion such as military jackets and pants, graphic tees and hoodies, soccer uniform sets, jewelry with handcrafted-in-L.A. hardware and lifestyle goods.
The collection will be available online this year, according to a release, and through pop-up shops in key markets.
The gangster drama series tells the true story of Colombia’s drug cartels, drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and his interaction with the Drug Enforcement Agency. It has a following worldwide, and is the number one series in the Middle East. The show’s 1970s and ’80s crime boss, lady boss and hustler looks (by costume designer Maria Estela Fernandez) have garnered coverage in publications ranging from Dazed to Oprah magazine.
The collection is the latest foray for streaming TV into fashion branding; in 2017, Hulu enlisted indie New York label Vaquera to create a collection inspired by its hit series “The Handmaid’s Tale.” And Amazon Prime Video’s fashion competition series “Making the Cut” has its finale April 24,

Fashion Girls for Humanity Launches Gowns for Good Made in America

DIRE DRESS CODES: Like many nonprofits, Fashion Girls for Humanity has redirected its focus to the global pandemic to help develop PPE — or personal protective equipment — goods.
The group has teamed with Fashion for the Front Lines to create two information hubs to highlight available resources, including downloadable patterns to make face masks and medical gowns. There is a list of hospitals and health-care facilities that are in need of donations or purchases of PPE. There is also information about companies producing PPE goods.
Fashion Girls for Humanity was started nine years ago by Julie Gilhart, Kikka Hanazawa, Miki Higasa and Tomoko Ogura. As part of the COVID-19 response, the group is helping Care + Wear, a leading resource for health-wear, by starting a campaign to raise funds for its Gowns for Good Made in America.
The group aims to raise $ 250,000 through its GoFundMe page. The initial plan is to produce about 5,000 gowns each week to start through a group of New York-based factories and then 10,000 each week once things get rolling. Each $ 25 donation allows for a gown to be donated to a frontline medical worker. As part of the Fashion Girls for Humanity effort, the gowns

Elyse Kroll Creates Fashion Charity for Nurses in New York City

Elyse Kroll may have been out of the trade show business since 2012, but the founder of ENK International has never strayed very far from her fashion roots.
She has been so touched by the work of the nurses that she mobilized her former ENK team to help her create a charity for those frontline workers fighting the coronavirus in New York City. Called From Fashion With Love, the nonprofit is soliciting apparel, accessories and beauty brands to donate to gift bags that the organization is distributing to nurses staying in hotels in New York while they battle the pandemic.
So far, Birkenstock, Rebecca Minkoff, Joe’s Jeans, Fossil, Century 21, Splendid, Michael Stars, Erika Harvey, Rhone, TruGrace, Moussy Vintage, Surfside Supply and others have all donated products.

It has created 1,000 From Fashion With Love tote bags so far with an initial goal of 2,500. They will be filled with the donated products and distributed at the New Yorker hotel, followed by the other hotels around town that are housing the health-care workers.

British Fashion Council Merges Men’s, Women’s Showcases

LONDON — Following the cancellation of London Fashion Week Men’s in June, the British Fashion Council has been working to reimagine its seasonal showcases.
Today, it announced its plans to merge its women’s and men’s wear showcases into one “gender-neutral platform.” London Fashion Week: Men’s is no more and all designers will be showcasing their collections and brand stories under the London Fashion Week umbrella, starting with a three-day digital showcase on June 12, the time when the men’s wear shows were set to take place.
The BFC will introduce a new digital platform in time for the June online showcase that will be open to both trade and consumer audiences. The designers participating are yet to be confirmed, but the BFC is expecting a bigger mix than the usual June lineup, with men’s and women’s talent involved.
The aim of the format is to give designers bigger flexibility as to the audience they can reach, as well as the format and content of their presentations that can vary from product to cultural commentary.

“Many of our businesses have always embraced London Fashion Week as a platform for not just fashion, but for its influence on society, identity and culture. By creating a cultural fashion

Fashion Rallies for French Coronavirus Auction

FANTASY SHOPPING: A chair designed by Hedi Slimane, original sketches by Giorgio Armani and Alber Elbaz, a signed portrait of Marisa Berenson — these are just some of the prestigious lots being auctioned off to benefit staff at French retirement homes, which have been sharply hit by the coronavirus epidemic.
Journalist Laurence Benaïm, known for her definitive biography of Yves Saint Laurent, pulled together the auction in just one week, tapping her high-profile industry contacts for exceptional donations.
In addition to precious objects, the sale offers plenty of the kind of experiences one can only dream of in lockdown: private visits of the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Paris, the headquarters of Kering in Paris, the Château de Versailles and the Château de la Colle Noire — the latter courtesy of Dior Parfum.
Or how about a writing workshop on memory with award-winning writer Leïla Slimani, a lesson in baking macaroons with pastry chef Pierre Hermé, or a photograph of Saint Laurent and his muse Betty Catroux, signed by Catroux herself?

Fashion Exhibitions Are Getting Extended, Postponed

Magnificent dresses are on display in museums, with no one to appreciate them due to closures in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic. And so dates are in flux. On Friday, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris said its exhibition “Harper’s Bazaar — First in Fashion,” which opened during Paris Fashion Week last March, would be extended to September. It was originally meant to close on July 14.
The showcase — mingling fashions with magazine covers, photos, videos and artworks — also debuted a radical new look for the museum’s fashion galleries after an extensive renovation.
The Loewe Foundation Craft Prize, meant to take place at Les Arts Décoratifs on May 21, has been postponed to spring 2021, and an exhibition titled “Luxes,” meant to open April 23, will now debut in September.
Separately, the fashion museum in Antwerp, MoMu, said this week it won’t reopen until 2021. Restrictions due to the health crisis are impacting renovations and preparations for the reopening, initially slated for later this year.

Rihanna Receives PETA’s Compassion in Fashion Award, Makes Top 40 History

THE HONOR IS ALL OURS, REALLY: Four months after Rihanna won her first fashion award for her Fenty label, she has been given a second from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
Although Janet Jackson presented the multitalented musician with the British Fashion Council’s prize in London in December, a presenter was not needed for this month’s one.
The nine-time Grammy winner didn’t have to pick up her Compassion in Fashion award. PETA shipped it to her, primarily for the capsule collection of faux leather items that Fenty debuted recently. Apparently, the animal rights group approved of the corset dress, skirt, button-down shirts and other options. Rihanna has not acknowledged PETA’s request for her to go fur-free, a PETA spokeswoman said Thursday.
Everyone is a fashion critic — at least on social media — and Rihanna heard from some of the fur-hating ones after she wore a fur coat to the Dior cruise collection show in Los Angeles in May 2017. PETA took advantage of the situation shortly after the event and shipped four faux-fur options from the animal-friendly brand Unreal Fur to the musician. But the freebies also delivered some free advice, namely in a letter from PETA, asking her to

Artists and Fashion Designers Can Apply for $5,000 Grants From Artists Relief Fund

IN NEED OF RELIEF: The financial destruction from the pandemic reaches far and wide, and artists are about to get a lifeline, thanks to an effort led by a coalition of art funders called the Artist Relief Fund.
After 10 days of fundraising, a group of seven art funds have drummed up $ 5 million that will be distributed directly to artists — including fashion designers — via unrestricted $ 5,000 grants. Over the weekend, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation offered a matching grant of $ 5 million.
The Artist Relief Fund initiative goes live today. Professional artists who live in the U.S. and can show financial need are invited to apply.
Artist Relief consists of the Academy of American Poets, Artadia, Creative Capital, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, MAP Fund, the National YoungArts Foundation and United States Artists. Additional contributions are also being sought from organizations and individuals.
With museums and galleries around the world temporarily shuttered for the foreseeable future, many artists, especially those based in major metropolitan cities, are scraping to get by. The average annual salary for fine artists including painters, sculptors and illustrators is $ 58,370, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

This week in sustainability, events and themes are reworked in the wake of coronavirus, spurring special changes for sustainability-themed organizers.
COPENHAGEN FASHION SUMMIT: The annual sustainable fashion summit, which was postponed due to the coronavirus, has set Oct. 12 to 13 as the new dates and an updated theme: “Redesigning Value.”
“The summit will address fashion’s new reality,” said a statement from Global Fashion Agenda, the organizing group. The event will “navigate the current and future realities facing our industry,” with the pandemic prompting how to reorient sustainable business practices to a business’ core for greater resiliency.
An advocate for an industry reset, Eva Kruse, chief executive officer of Global Fashion Agenda, said: “This crisis has forced a quarantine on the world and by extension a quarantine on consumption, raising the question of how this will impact the fashion landscape in the aftermath.”

Experimental Fashion Boutique Café Forgot Launches E-commerce Site

Café Forgot cofounders Vita Haas and Lucy Weisner are used to seeing each other nearly every day. Under current coronavirus lockdowns in New York City, they’ve gone a month without meeting up in person — something that would have seemed unfathomable not too long ago.
The experimental fashion boutique, which stages monthlong temporary installations in its East Village space, was unable to open an April edition of Café Forgot due to the COVID-19 crisis. Still beholden to paying a sizable portion of their rent (they did receive a discount from their landlords for April), Haas and Weisner fast-tracked their e-commerce site to try to make up for potential lost revenue.
“Thinking about our finances and all of our expenses pushed us to figure out a solution. We still wanted it to feel like you were just standing in the store and to maintain the temporary nature of everything,” Weisner said of their site’s quick turnaround.
Realistic about the state of retail, Weisner and Haas established Café Forgot as a bimonthly pop-up shop concept to inspire a sense of urgency in shoppers. In the off months, their store operates as a gallery space or showroom for brands and artists — giving the company a

#PayUp Petition Calls for Major Fashion Companies to Pay Garment Factories

An online petition is calling on major fashion brands to pay their garment factories for the orders canceled or delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Remake, a nonprofit organization that strives to educate consumers on the fashion industry’s treatment of women and its environmental impact, launched the #PayUp petition on April 3 to spotlight how some of the world’s biggest fashion brands owe more than $ 3 billion to garment factories in countries such as Bangladesh, India, Myanmar and Cambodia for upcoming orders.
The organization states that the companies withholding their payments has resulted in international garment workers being out of work with no severance, savings or access to health care. Remake also reports that an estimated 50 million garment workers will be impacted by COVID-19.
The petition alleges the group includes companies such as Zara, H&M, Target Corp., Mango, Primark, J.C. Penney Co. Inc., Walmart Inc., Marks & Spencer, VF Corp., C&A, PVH Corp., Tesco, Kohl’s Corp., LPP, Bestseller Fashion Group, Mothercare and Kiabi. Remake claimed these companies owe the factories based on information from the Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity and Denim Expert Ltd. in Bangladesh.

Lyst Sees ‘Slow Fashion’ on the Rise in Sustainable Fashion Report

Shopping search platform Lyst has unveiled its sustainable fashion report for 2020, delving into the sustainable brands, products and keywords shifting consumer culture.
Over the past year, “slow fashion” has generated 90 million social impressions “suggesting the beginning of a shift in shopping behaviors,” as the report said.
The company garnered insights from more than 100 million shoppers that used its platform over the past year, while also tapping fashion rating organization Good on You and Google for data.
While its February index for the fourth quarter catalogued the “hottest brands” like Off-White and Moncler, this report focused only on sustainable fashion, which the platform defines as “protecting the future of our planet and its people when we design, create and wear our clothes,” also taking into account welfare of animals.
Topping the list for most sneaker searches was French brand Veja, up 115 percent year-over-year with brands like Stella McCartney up for vegan sneaker shoppers.
On an individual item level, Girlfriend Collective’s leggings, which are made from recycled plastic bottles and Reformation’s “Juliette dress” fared well with shoppers, with hunts for lesser-known brands such as Nudie Jeans and Bassike clothing, both proponents for organic cotton, increasing.
“Vegan leather” saw searches increase 69 percent year-over-year. And

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.

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.

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

The COVID-19 pandemic, which amassed 182,100 cases and caused 7,305 deaths globally as of March 17, has led to the disruption of everyday life, with local governments enacting strict measures to contain the virus’ spread.
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. These measures have affected myriad fashion and beauty businesses, many of which are now closing their doors for an indefinite period of time.

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.

Australian Fashion Week Canceled

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.
At press time, the virus had claimed the lives of three people in Australia, with cases quadrupling over the past week to almost 200. Cases include Tom Hanks

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.

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 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.”

Italian Fashion Chamber Shows Solidarity With China

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.

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.
“I want to convey a female point of view based on my personal experience. Compared to Western born-and-bred Asians I think I

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.
For Hanning, that problem was

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.
