    10 days ago - By WWD

    BETWEEN THE LINES: In New York for a Q&A at Spring Place and a happy hour at Camp David in Brooklyn on Thursday, Los Angeles-based fashion illustrator Jeanette Getrost discussed how the medium is coming back to life.
    About 20 will be at the NYFW event at Spring and the crowd will be considerably livelier at Camp David, the co-working space for creatives started by Milk Studios' Mazdack Rassi and Erez Shternlich. Getrost chalked up the renewed interest in fashion illustration to social media giving artists a platform to get their work out. In addition, “People get a little tired of new...

    10 days ago - By WWD

    FUR'S FIRST OFFENSE: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals tried to leave their own stamp on New York Fashion Week on Wednesday afternoon.
    Looking to crack down on showgoers wearing animal skins, the animal rights group recruited two supporters to pose as “fashion police” writing tickets for unsuspecting passersby. A delayed noontime start wasn't the only glitch. Most of the runway shows were finished throughout the city, never mind at the corner of West Houston and Washington Street where their patrol began. (A utility worker off to work did look very Calvin Klein-esque in a...

  • Maryam Nassir Zadeh RTW Fall 2018

    10 days ago - By WWD

    Masculine and feminine. Strong and soft. The play on opposites is definitely not something new for the fashion industry. And Maryam Nassir Zadeh managed to show her own personal take on the contrast between apparently conflicting forces.
    The designer fused mannish and more gentle silhouettes, heavy and lightweight fabrications, urban and rustic influences, as well as bright and subdued tones in a lineup, which, even if it didn't look so cohesive, actually offered a number of pretty options for independent women looking for unique things.
    For example, utilitarian pockets appeared on a fluid...

  • Take cover! The balaclava's finest fashion moments - from Calvin Klein to Kanye West

    10 days ago - By The Guardian

    Raf Simons sent the politically charged headwear down the catwalk at New York fashion week - but he's not the first to turn it into a style statement Not one to shy away from making his fashion shows a social and political commentary, Raf Simons continued his provocative streak at Calvin Klein at New York fashion week on Tuesday. His sartorial weapon of choice this season? The balaclava. As one of the most connotation-laden pieces of headgear - associated with war and terror, concealment and protection - it is surely no coincidence that Simons made it a focal point. Last season, his...
