Fashion is Decided by People’s Response, Says Sonam Kapoor

  A file photo of Sonam Kapoor. (Image: Instagram/ Sonam Kapoor) Mumbai: Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, who has stepped into the business field along with her sister Rhea Kapoor to launch high street fashion brand Rheson, says a creative business like fashion is riskier as compared to a business of things for daily needs. “I think any creative business is more risk-taking because eventually, it is up to the consumer to like it. It is not like a product of daily need like bread or milk. Fashion is almost like…

Meanwhile, the Boston Consulting Group and the Global Fashion Agenda debuted Pulse of the Fashion Industry 2017, the first-ever publication analyzing and critiquing…

Kate! Naomi! Bella! The Best Runway Looks From Last Night’s Fashion for Relief Fundraiser

Last night, Naomi Campbell brought her annual Fashion for Relief runway show and fundraiser to the Cannes Film Festival. Per usual, the casting rivaled that of a major Paris Fashion Week show, with supers like Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, and Erin O’Connor walking alongside Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Maria Borges. Unlike a typical fashion show, of course, the models wore looks by a variety of designers—Versace, Alexander McQueen, and Azzedine Alaïa were just a few who donated dresses for the occasion, which raised funds for Save the Children.

Meet The Fashion Student: Greg Dugdale

With SCAD FASHWKND just days away, we chatted with seniors about their fashion inspirations. Here, meet Greg Dugdale. “I decided to go into fashion because I couldn’t stop creating,” Dugdale says. “Every weekend, from about fifth grade to now, I’ve work on something [that’s] art or fashion.”  Dugdale’s collection exudes a colorful, enthusiastic feel you might expect from a beloved kid’s book character (he’s a self-professed Amelia Bedelia fan, after all), but his intricate manufacturing is all art-school finesse. “The most common materials I work with are cotton and denim, but I love…

Finally, Some More Intel On Alexa Chung’s Fashion Collection

Alexa Chung may have provided plenty of fashion inspiration for us with her own #OOTDs over the years, whether that involves overalls, frilly tops, or Mary Janes.

Welcome to Open Thread, Our New Fashion Newsletter

This year should be particularly jaw-dropping, since the exhibit the gala celebrates is a one-woman show dedicated to Rei Kawakubo, the founder of the Japanese brand Comme des Garçons, and only the second living designer ever to be granted a retrospective at the museum. (The first was Yves Saint Laurent, in 1983.) Ms. Kawakubo’s work challenges all conventional notions of beauty, femininity and the way garments are constructed; she dares to go where most designers — and, frankly, people — do not. Once, I talked to her backstage after a…

LONDON, United Kingdom — “Fashion immediacy.” “See now, buy now.”

LONDON, United Kingdom — “Fashion immediacy.” “See now, buy now.” “Instant fashion.” Whatever you call it, the concept of presenting a designer collection that can be purchased — and delivered — immediately after its runway debut was once heralded as the high fashion’s antidote to sweeping disruption. For years, the traditional designer fashion model has been under attack from a variety of players, including “cheap chic” fast-fashion behemoths delivering on-the-nose trends at record speed; contemporary brands fusing luxury-like image and customer service with slick back-end operations and lower price points;…

Mistreatment of models is fashion’s Groundhog Day

Monday 3 April 2017 16.56 BSTLast modified on Monday 3 April 2017 22.00 BST I have been reading a lot recently about how models are treated really badly. I thought this had been sorted out ages ago. Charles, by email Yes, mysterious, isn’t it? Rather like how we sorted out that fashion magazines were no longer going to feature skinny models. And yet here we are again, with models complaining about how horrendously they are treated, and magazines not exactly lacking in visible hip bones. Huh. It’s almost like the fashion industry ……
