Ayesha Barenblat, Remake’s founder, hopes the film will light a fire under the fast-fashion jeans and viscose jumpsuits of the ranks of less woke shoppers and spark the desire to consume more consciously. She knows that’s easier said than done.
“You come up against the reality that making the right choices are expensive and time-consuming,” said Barenblat, noting that many consumers continue to associate sustainable apparel with dull, crunchy or unattainably expensive clothing. “How do you make sustainability accessible to the everyday girl, so she knows that sustainable fashion can be stylish, attainable and inclusive.
“There’s so many misleading eco-conscious claims, and so much greenwashing,” Barenblat said, adding that some statistics and data points have become evangelized by the industry in spite of a lack of science-based, peer-reviewed research. “Fashion is the world’s second-biggest polluter. How

The Hawaii-based Filipino YouTuber is set to star in an upcoming MTV series, which will premiere early next year.

MTV’s debut season of “No Filter” starred infamous TanaCon YouTuber Tana Mongeau.
Rock shot to Internet fame as a beauty vlogger and has collaborated on product with both Morphe and ColourPop. He told WWD in September, when he made his fashion week debut, that he is working to expand his brand beyond beauty — namely via fashion and lifestyle.
Rock’s presence at New York Fashion Week exemplified a larger shift in the fashion industry toward Internet culture. In May, influencers, including James Charles, Lilly Singh, Liza Koshy and Camila Coelho, solidified their place among fashion’s elite when they attended the Met Gala. Fueled in large part by his feud with Tati Westbrook, James Charles was also one of the most-searched people of the year, according to Google’s 2019 Year in Search report.

The Torrid series portrays Ferreira as the girl who’s always the life of the party and spreader of good vibes, even when she finds herself in tough predicaments. Torrid partnered with director Sasie Sealy, who is known for her focus on female-led narratives and championed a female-led production crew for this initiative.

BRIGITTE ON CAMERA: Miu Miu will present its 18th short film as part of the Women’s Tales series in Venice on Sept. 1 during the city’s International Film Festival.
Dubbed “Brigitte,” the latest installment of the series focuses on photographer and longtime Miu Miu and Prada collaborator Brigitte Lacombe, offering insight into her creative process at work.
Set in a hydraulic factory in London, the short film is directed by Scottish filmmaker Lynne Ramsay, whose most recent feature “You Were Never Really Here” starring Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Screenplay and Best Actor awards at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017.
In the short film, which is shot in a deep monochrome mood, Lacombe discusses her life and ideas with Ramsay, while people close to the photographer make an appearance, including her sister Marian.
Approached by Ramsay with the idea of a documentary, Lacombe said she “absolutely wanted to be a part of it. And I always saw this as a collaboration.…I knew I wanted at the end to turn the camera on Lynne.”
“I hate having my photo taken. Brigitte [Lacombe] was the first person who captured me,” echoed Ramsay, who originally trained as a stills photographer. “She cast a magic spell. I wondered:

“We’ve been using Los Angeles as our muse, backdrop and scenic inspiration and we felt it was time to speak the language of the city,” says Wolk, referencing previous collections, one shown at Hollywood’s historic Yamashiro Japanese restaurant, another inspired by California’s mid-century “California Cool” art movement, another by its private school-going “teenage bourgeoisie.” “Also, it was really fun to cast…we got to call all of our crazy eccentric friends and get them to participate,” he said of the short film’s lineup of Lydia Hearst, Moon Unit Zappa, Aimee Garcia, Rebecca Walker, Monica Abanonu and more.

Elle Callahan’s directorial debut feature “Head Count” is another intriguing mindbender in which 10 collegiate types find themselves […]
