Designer Misha Japanwala Is Never Fully Dressed Without a Breastplate

Posted on

Japanwala finds that garments like this straddle the line between fashion and fine art. “In fashion school, I didn’t expect to do body casting initially, and I find myself in this gray area in terms of what others consider to be ‘fashion,’” Japanwala says. “My work is hung on my walls, but it’s also wearable, so I personally consider it fashion.” Breastplates also became popular on the runway in 2020, as seen in collections from Tom Ford and Schiaparelli, and worn by celebrities like Zendaya, Kim Kardashian, and Zoë Kravitz.

After she graduated from Parsons, Japanwala woke up to a

Posted on

Written by Fiona Sinclair Scott, CNN

While the novel coronavirus was the talk of the town in Paris during the womenswear shows this time last year, nobody could have predicted that it would continue to define fashion’s seasonal calendar twelve months later.

But Paris Fashion Week’s eight day schedule, which opened on Monday, consists of mostly digital videos and livestreams in lieu of people-packed runway shows. It is the new normal for a world that has been turned on its head.

From manufacturing supply chains to sales, all aspects of the fashion industry’s modus operandi has been challenged due to

The Best 2021 Golden Globes Fashion Looks Prove Virtual Dressing Has Hit Its Peak

Posted on

In-person red carpet events are still on pause for this year, which means most people will partake in the award season circuit from home. What follows is a more tame and relaxed version of the usual hustle and bustle of a Sunday night for celebrities — there’s no accidentally stepping on anyone’s gown or mingling with costars while teetering on six-inch heels. When it comes to the fashion, however, Hollywood’s actors still brought the drama, especially to the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards where their best looks deserved all the heart eyes emojis.

Fashion Week Fall 2021 Street Style: The Best Plus-SIze Outfits

Posted on

Out of all the things we miss about life before the pandemic, getting dressed-dressed falls somewhere in our top five. Remember commuting to work in non-stretchy pants? Taking risks with cutouts and deep-V necklines? Slipping on a pair of heels (then ultimately slipping them off an hour later, because, ouch)? Sigh. Those were the days — but, we’re confident they’ll be back.

Until then, we can daydream about our future wardrobes by looking at all the fun designs coming down the (mostly virtual) Fall 2021 runways at New York Fashion Week. And, if you’re missing the usual street

One of the few silver linings of the pandemic has been our heightened awareness around climate change and fashion’s ramped-up efforts to address it. By now, it’s generally understood that our industry is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, the leading cause of climate change; it’s also responsible for pollution, waste, and even fracking. We were talking about the need for change before the pandemic, but 2020 pushed those words into action.

The spring 2021 collections, designed in quarantine and arriving in stores now, marked a particular turning point. In our conversations with designers, it was the first time

Young Photos of Supermodel Janice Dickenson

Posted on

Janice Dickinson was one of America’s first major supermodels. Known for her long legs and brunette locks, the New York City-native acted as the face of fashion throughout the ’70s and ’80s. At the onset of her career, young Dickinson was turned down by a number of modeling agencies who considered her look to be too different from the mainstream. Her tanned complexion and dark eyes were not necessarily in line with the desirable all-American look which was popularized during that time. Ultimately, the renowned Whilmenia Cooper took Dickinson under her wing as the young model’s first agent. She went
