Plus-size High-fashion Designer Finds Retailers Still Hesitant - Cbs News

I wanted my clothes to fit," Clarke said. When Clarke tried to sell her trendy plus-size designs to retailers, the response was always the same. "They would say, 'You know if it was in straight size, we would put it on the rack, but because it's in plus-size, no one's gonna buy it,'" Clarke said. Clarke took her business online. It was a convertible dress that launched her sales, but it's interaction with clients on social media like Facebook and Instagram that's helped sustain it. Last year her revenue was upward of $1 million.

Solange Had No Words for ?Fashion Police,? but Her Flip of the Hair Spoke Volumes - Yahoo News

The E! talk show isn't the only media outlet guilty of ridiculing the singer for her natural hair , she said.In Touch Weekly"compared it to a dog," she tweeted. In a column last year about pets that resemble celebrities, the gossip magazine reportedly ran a photo of a reader's Yorkshire terrierpoodle mix side by side with a photo of Knowles. "Basically twinsies" was the snarky caption. "What can I say?" tweeted Knowles. Turns out, GIFs speak louder than words.

Inditex bans angora wool products - Feb. 10, 2015

She returned to her fashion roots to overcome this problem. "I just thought there's got to be a quicker or more profitable way to do this, rather than doing this in pure research," she says. "(The purpose of The Unseen) wasn't to be in all the press and everywhere. It was a strategic plan so we can create products that help people in their daily lives." While they haven't developed chemistry-infused garments to help people just yet, The Unseen's current output has attracted attention across industries. They recently hosted representatives from luxury car companies interested in using their color change technology, and the team is gearing up to announce a very hush-hush capsule collection for a high-end heritage retailer. I really want The Unseen to become an iconic brand known for pushing materials in a magical way. Lauren Bowker, The Unseen Recently, they've been in talks about exhibiting at The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and the newly reopened Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York City, and they will be showcasing their work at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas this March.

Fashion show to benefit Soroptimist programs, Vista Maria - thenewsherald.com

One of the world's biggest fashion firms has banned the sale of angora wool after activists highlighted the cruel treatment of rabbits by farms in China. Inditex, which owns Zara, Massimo Dutti and Bershka, said it would stop selling angora garments in all of its 6,400 shops after facing months of pressure from animal rights campaigners. One campaign against angora wool showed videos of live rabbits screaming while fur is pulled from their skins on Chinese farms. The footage, obtained by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) at 10 farms in China, also showed rabbits being stretched on boards and cut as their fur is hacked off.

Paris fashion week salutes the deconstructed soldier - Yahoo News

In honor of Paris men's fashion week (January 21-25), Relaxnews caught up with Rynshu, who will showcase his Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collection on Sunday, January 25. The Japanese designer shed light on his inspirations through a portrait in six questions. If you were a fashion faux pas, which one would you be? Someone who wears multiple luxury brands at once. In Japan we call these people "Chindon ya." The word usually refers to the traditional street musicians who play to promote certain products or shops. It is also used in a satirical sense.

John Terry and Diego Costa were the men on target as Jose Mourinho's side moved six points ahead of second-place Manchester City, who are in action later in the day. West Ham had begun the day in fourth place, but the gulf in class between the two teams was apparent throughout, with Chelsea's Eden Hazard the game's most eye-catching performer. Andy Carroll volleyed wide in the first minute as West Ham -- criticised by Mourinho for their defensive tactics in the 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge last season -- indicated they might be more ambitious this time. There was a much better chance for Chelsea soon after when the West Ham defence failed to deal with a cross from Willian that found Oscar , but the recalled Brazilian blasted over with only goalkeeper Adrian to beat. Gary Cahill then headed over from a delivery into the box by fellow centre-back Terry as Chelsea continued to dominate the opening exchanges. There was a nervous moment for the visitors when Hazard pushed the ball between Winston Reid's legs and went down on the edge of the box when the defender made contact, but referee Michael Oliver allowed play to continue.

Fashion Blogger Rumi Neely Launches Her Own Clothing Line - Yahoo News

Fashion Icon Beverly Johnson Says Bill Cosby Drugged Her - ABC News

"Blogging gave me access to the fashion world that I had only dreamed about having, and has done so much for training my eye," says Neely, who initially launched her blog alongside her eBay vintage store, Treasure Chest Vintage, in 2008. "The things I look out for when looking at clothes are so crazily specific now that it really was a very natural thing to start conceptualizing my own line." Neelys influences for the line run the gamut, from Japanese fashion magazines to "scruffy French actresses," she says, as well as her own native Southern California. "L.A. gets such a bad rap for basically not even caring about fashion but that's completely not my perspective. I love the laid back feeling, the emphasis on dressing down just makes it moreimportant to really have that perfect t-shirt or pajama-ish short.I've lived in a fewdifferent parts of California and they've really all had a part in influencing my normal." Personal favorites from the line include the Kaede shorts ($280), the Zillah slipdress ($300) just cause it's hot, and the Ceven tank ("It's the easiest thing to just throw on and I love the low-cut sides," the blogger notes of the $90 piece). Prior to launching Are You Am I, Neely has already cut her fashion teeth in collaborations with lines including The Reformation and Dannijo, and in modeling campaigns for Free People, RVCA and Forever 21. Made in downtown Los Angeles, the brand which Neely has slowly revealed on her Instagram http://www.chicemma.com will be sold at The Grove in Los Angeles as part of a holiday pop-up in collaboration with Revolve Clothing, just in time for the holidays.

Williams' comments came on Wednesday night inside Century Citys chic Hinoki & The Bird during a private dinner to toast the line, which features colorful track jackets and Stan Smith shoes, many of which are emblazoned with polka-dots. The 41-year-old sporting a stylish Nick Fouquet brim , Adidas sneakers and weathered jeans with an Adidas logo splashed on the backside proved to be a gracious and lively host to guests including Gwen Stefani , Khloe Kardashian, Ellen Pompeo, A$AP Ferg, Samantha Ronson, Hans Zimmer, Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, Adidas creative director Dirk Schoenberger, director Diane Martel, choreographer Fatima Robinson,Shae Haley of N.E.R.D., hairstylist Jen Atkin and The A-Lists Ashlee Margolis. Williams also took two minutes to deliver humble remarks at his bash, which featured beats by DJ D-Nice (think classic R&B mixed in with some of Williams' best tracks). Where I come from these opportunities are not afforded many people, noted the Virginia native.

Marsala Named the Pantone Color of 2015: Shop Clothes, Makeup in Shade - Us Weekly

6 hours ago View photo Male models pose at the Jack Spade Spring 2015 presentation in New York. According to a report published in WWD, the Council of Fashion Designers of America is sizing up a standalone men's fashion week for the Spring/Summer 2016 season, set to take place next July. The CFDA are apparently toying with the idea of a first independent men's fashion week for next July. Currently the city's menswear designers show their collections at the same time as the women's fashion weeks held in February and September. "There are still a lot of boxes that need to be checked, but we have tentative dates for July of 15 to be the first one," Steven Kolb, chief executive officer of the CFDA, explained to WWD . The dates reportedly being touted include July 20 to 22, when the Project, Liberty, MRket and Capsule trade shows are also going on in the city. This would move the Spring/Summer New York menswear shows forward in the calendar from their usual slots mixed in with the womenswear schedule, and would then line them up with the buying schedule with that of the Milan, Paris and London shows. It's a bold move, but following the successful relaunch of the London Collections: Men , which saw the successful establishment of separate menswear shows in the UK capital ahead of Milan men's fashion week and which has helped boost the city's menswear sales, it looks like it might be a strong play.

Police Criticize Stores Amid U.K. Black Friday Disorder - Bloomberg

Officers were called to seven Tesco Plc (TSCO) stores in the Manchester area earlier today, Greater Manchester police said. In London, the Metropolitan Police dealt with calls from three Tesco stores after large crowds gathered. The events of last night were totally predictable and I am disappointed that stores did not have sufficient security staff on duty, Peter Fahy, chief constable of Greater Manchester police, said in an e-mail. This created situations where we had to deal with crushing, disorder and disputes between customers. It does not help that this was in the early hours when police resources are already stretched. Tesco extended Black Friday discounting to stores for the first time today after starting with online sales last year.

Man whose epic slap went viral: I?ve never slapped anyone before | New York Post

The runway was quite literally brought to the bargaining table. Models strutted their gowns across the same surface on which resolutions are passed, and where environmentalists gather to sort out climate issues. This cultural event, however, was not immune to the conflict and fighting that so many other United Nations meetings are centered around. As violence between Palestinians and Israelis goes on for weeks -- with serious tension in the holy city of Jerusalem -- Ron Prosor, Israeli front page ambassador to the U.N., blasted the Palestinian delegation hours before the show for not condemning the acts of violence back in the Middle East. "The Palestinian authority is glorifying terrorists and celebrating attacks on Jews and Israelis nearly every day.

"I'm automatically thinking, 'Oh, who posted a video of me on YouTube?' " she said with a laugh. The resemblance was uncanny. When she got home, she looked again and realized it wasn't her but a girl who looked exactly like her who lived in the United States. The twins marvel at how they were raised separately and still had the same hairstyles as babies. She looked for credits on the video to find the woman's name but couldn't find anything, so she dropped the matter. That was until the same friend who sent the screen shot said he saw the girl from the video in a movie trailer, also on YouTube, about a month later.

Why New Balance Makes Shoes For Kate Spade And Jcrew - Businessweek

For example: Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic; AAR/FameFlynet; Splash Ne Go monochrome like Nicole Richie Despite seeming totally runway-worthy, that white body-con dress is actually from H&M! By pairing it with accessories of the same hue (like her Tadashi Shoji cape, Christian Louboutin shoes and a Saint Laurent clutch), the H&M dress looks like it could be couture. Choose clean lines like Taylor Swift By selecting all tailored pieces (trench-style outerwear, a top-handle bag and structured leather booties) its pretty much impossible to tell which is the splurge-worthy item ( her $995 Jerome C. Rousseau booties ) and which are the budget-friendly picks (her Asos coat which is on sale for $106.12 and her gorgeous $50 Aldo purse http://www.chicemma.com ). Wear bling on bling like Beyonce Anything sparkly will always feel special and luxe. So if you pair it with actual jewels (like Queen Beys Lorraine Schwartz earrings and bracelets) a $130 sequin Topshop dress looks like a red carpet regular. Which of these high-low mixes would you like to try?

J. Crew, a second relatively staid brand that has refused to jump on the trend of workout clothes for work, has long maintained a similar partnership with New Balance. Theres little sartorial risk involved on either side of these deals. New Balance was a so-called athleisure statement long before Lululemon ( LULU ) was a funky little boutique in Vancouver. The shoemakers chunky running shoes arent usually spotted these days on someone who is actually running. New Balance customers seem more likely to be sipping, teaching, or codingliving everyday life, rather than working up a sweat.

The magazine's editor, Matthew Gwyther, said the former Spice Girl's place on the list might be frowned upon given that some could argue she has "never been taught how to cut a pattern, or iron a pleat on a fashion course," however, he praised the former singer for leveraging her fame into a business .

How faith is making modest fashion trendy | Deseret News

BaderElbert, Getty Images/iStockphoto National Edition This story is part of the Deseret News National Edition , which focuses on the issues that resonate with American families. Modest clothing is making a splash in the world of high fashion, propelled by young designers driven by faith. Although the fashion industry is rarely associated with conservative styles, a few new brands have found success producing creative, trendy pieces that give religious women the coverage they desire. Louella , a Los Angeles-based company, "has sold nearly 4,000 pieces since its launch three months ago," The Associated Press reported this week. Ibtihaj Muhammad, a Muslim woman who represents the United States in international fencing competitions, launched the brand because of how difficult it was for her to find dresses to wear during speaking tours. Additionally, New York-based DKNY made headlines this summer by releasing a women's-wear collection tied to the month of Ramadan.

He got it Sunday in a different sense as they were continuously bad. The Bears were unprepared to face the precision passing in the Patriots offense. No matter what defensive coordinator Mel Tucker says, he cannot justify having Gronkowski guarded by Shea McClellin one on one near the goal line (TD catch). Trestman's game plan was solid enough, throwing under the zone coverage and emphasizing the running game more than in the past.

India's Flipkart raises $1 bn to tackle Amazon - Yahoo News

"Very few Internet companies in the world could have raised such funds publicly." Flipkart is the country's biggest online shopping portal in an e-commerce market that is still puny next to China's. But the market, whose sales reached $2.3 billion in 2013 according to Indian consultancy Technopak, is expanding rapidly, with venture capitalists pouring money into the sector, scenting potential. Bansal, whose firm began with music and books and expanded rapidly into mobiles, appliances and other goods, said the funding was "validation of the view that India's Internet could produce multi-billion dollar companies". Pragya Singh, associate vice president of Technopak, said "investors are realising that the firms they are investing in need their best backing" if they want to survive the stiff competition. Flipkart had earlier drawn backers such as New-York based venture capitalists Tiger Global Management LLC and announced earlier this year that it had passed the one billion sales mark. In May, Flipkart said it was taking over rival Myntra, India's top online fashion venture, in a deal analysts estimated at $330 million -- the largest of a string of transactions in the sector in the past two (visit site) years. Flipkart has been helped greatly by its service that allows customers to pay by cash-on-delivery.

Seemingly she was out of range of the Nazi extermination net - but not far enough to avoid being transported to Auschwitz and gassed there, while she was pregnant, in 1943 at the age of 26. "COMPLEX EMOTION" Dalbavie said he had been attracted to the subject because it met his criteria for a main character and because the lives and personalities of the people surrounding her had just the right amount of ambivalence for him to imagine them singing. "I have to believe why people sing, I have to understand why they sing. It has to be a necessity for me, it cannot just be a sort of genre like you do a police or a war movie ... It's the impact of the emotion in the opera," he said.

Do someone a favor. Be other focused. Be expert:Recent grads get obsessed with figuring out what they want to do with their careers, but the truth is you wont know this for years to come. Instead, focus on becoming expert at one or two things. These can be very simple, very basic things, like making a 30-second video, building a simple website, or conducting thorough research The important thing is that you are good enough at something that other people can recommend you. Be trustworthy: Especially when meeting you for the first time, other people look for clues whether you are someone they can trust. (Being smart is not the same thing as being trustworthy.) Make certain your clothes, online presence, posture and conversational style provide people with positive clues.

Second, there has been epic shift in power in the marketplace from producer to consumer, from seller to buyer. In the 20th Century, the organization was in charge and could succeed by pushing products and services at customers. Now, as a result of globalization, which generated choices, and the Internet, which has given customers reliable information about those choices, customers are collectively in charge of the marketplace. This shift in power is causing a massive upheaval throughout the global economy. Yet the implications of this epic shift are still only dimly perceived by many managers. The third factor, which followed from the first two, is the tremendous stress that executives everywhere are experiencing. Old ways of managing are no longer appropriate to the very different world that is emergingsharpened competition, accelerating innovation and enhanced expectations from customers who have the power to enforce those expectations.

And now the superstar has given us something else to obsess over: a provocative spread for Carine Roitfelds CR Fashion Book . And instead of an interview, she wrote a poem. Pierre Debusschere/CR Fashion Book Queen Bey looks gorgeous as usual as she poses in a number of looks, from a trench coat with only black briefs underneath to a photo with a surfboard strapped to her back. And in the poem titled Bey the Light, which was written in her own words and remixed by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Forest Gander (because sure, why not), she opens up about how her daughter has given her new purpose. Its my daughter, shes my biggest muse, she writes (but as we read it, we imagine her softly rapping the words). Theres someone we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose. RELATED PHOTOS: Vote on all the latest red carpet looks Pierre Debusschere/CR Fashion Book Bey also writes about how she hopes others interpret her talents: You call me a singer, but Im called to transform, to suck up the grief, anxiety, and loss of those who hear me into my songs form.

Online fashion retailer Zalando gets makeover as eyes listing - Yahoo News

An IPO would come amid a flurry of e-commerce flotations this year, with Chinese giant Alibaba set to list soon as well as German venture capital firm Rocket Internet which helped launch Zalando and many other start-ups. LOUD TO FASHIONABLE Earlier on Thursday Zalando, in which Sweden's Kinnevik is the biggest investor with a 36 percent stake, said first-half sales rose 29.5 percent to 1.047 billion euros and it made its first-ever operating profit. It earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of 12 million euros compared with an operating loss of 72 million a year ago. Ritter said the turn to profit had come from efficiency improvements across the board, including in marketing, new automated logistics facilities and the need for fewer markdowns due to more predictable weather in recent months. He said Zalando was now one of the biggest employers in the German capital - long plagued by high unemployment. The company has a total staff of 7,000 people, with an average age of just 29, and about two-thirds of them on unlimited contracts.

Australia's Premiere Fashion Platform Widens Its Presence At New York Fashion Week -- NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

. . (Source: Pamella Roland) Our hearts always skip a beat or two when fashion and beauty collide. This time, when we heard about the coming together of legendary designer Pamella Roland and renowned nail pro Patricia Yankee , our hearts skipped a whole series of beats. The two have previously worked together for Roland's Fashion Week shows, but in honor of the designer's fall collection, which was inspired by the city that never sleeps,the two decided to create a deep red nail lacquerappropriately called "New York City"that's so sumptuous it's hard not to instantly fall for. Created with a five-free formula, the red shade featuring a glint of gold twinkle debuted on the runway during Roland's Fall 2014 show. Now it's available for us non models to try. And with a price tag of $12, it's hard not to pick up a bottle or two. As of now, the pair only has one limited-edition color out, but we wouldn't be surprised if more are to follow.
