Who gets to be a woman?

NEW YORK (AP) — New York’s first female governor. American Girl dolls. The Statue of Liberty.

Prabal Gurung celebrated all things woman Wednesday night on the runway and off at his New York Fashion Week show along the downtown waterfront. He summed up his inspiration thusly with a quote borrowed from the Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion and culture critic Robin Givhan:

Proenza Schouler Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection

When the vaccines made traveling further than the office possible earlier this year, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough headed straight for Kauai, a favorite destination that they call their “sanctuary.” The island vibe rubbed off on their new collection, which mixed scuba and surfing motifs, a color palette plucked from nature, and a few handmade leis from Maui with their more urban fare.

Backstage after their Little Island show—the designers won the location sweepstakes this season—they clarified that Hawaii wasn’t a literal reference. But they did concede that there’s nothing as restorative as travel, especially when it comes after months

Hamish Bowles Presents Everything You Need to Know About American Fashion

The fashion landscape is a shifting one. For a long time, Paris was its undisputed capital, but now, as Hamish Bowles states: “American fashion is setting the tone for a never-seen-before future.”

The seeds of modern American fashion were planted in the 1940s.  Stateside trends typically followed ones set in France. When Paris was occupied during the Second World War, there were none. This allowed designers like Claire McCardell and Mainbocher to come to the fore.  They represented two ends of the spectrum, with the former catering to the elite and the latter to women with an active lifestyle, through

What Is ‘American Fashion’ Now?

In the beginning, American fashion was largely defined by what it wasn’t: European.

As Elizabeth Hawes, a sketcher turned journalist turned designer who went to Paris in the 1920s as a “copyist” — a patternmaker hired to copy French designs to be sold in the American market — wrote in her classic memoir-treatise, “Fashion Is Spinach,” one of the greatest achievements of the French was to convince the world that their clothing design was the only real clothing design, their savoir-faire intrinsic to the essence of chic. Thus began a parade of American designers — Charles

Fall Florals Will Be This Season’s Go-To Print

Though we know and love bright, punchy, flowery prints as the hero pattern of spring and summer, fall-hued florals are sure to become equally as popular this season. These slightly darker, more muted versions will not only complement your existing wardrobe but will make your fashion transition from summer to fall that much easier.

When the time comes to put away those blooming dresses, floral crocheted bucket hats, and meadowy bikinis, reach for a simple gold necklace with floral beads stationed throughout, a knit cardigan with delicate flower embroidery, or a solid pair of clogs with floral accents. Fall florals
