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

Being a young, independent fashion designer was hard enough before the pandemic, but things have now become even tougher for those on the career path. What were already unstable financial situations have become even more precarious, direct access to materials and specialist equipment is extremely limited and, with an economic crisis looming, stockists are proving increasingly conservative when it comes to supporting new talent.

This season, the British Fashion Council is charging a fee to be on their online directory of brands showing at London Fashion Week — something that many small

Going up

Vaxxies Vaccine selfies à la Arnie. It’s not showing off, it’s showing the anti-vaxxers that it’s not crazy.

Arm-masking In Milan, designer Miuccia Prada showed us how to carry your mask when you’re not wearing it.

Super-manis We’re sill obsessed with Billie Eilish’s square tipped nails. Straight from the Carmela Soprano playbook.

The platform index The last time stacked shoes were big was after the financial crash. 2021 could be Harris Reed’s year.

Trophy tights The easiest way to get dressed up, just ask Chrissy Teigen. If you can’t afford Chanel’s fishnets, go for M&S’s leopard-print ones.

Everything you need to know about Amazon’s fashion ambitions

Posted on

This story first appeared on Modern Retail, Glossy’s sister publication covering retail’s transformation.

It can be hard to track Amazon’s fashion empire.

The company sells both first-party and third-party apparel products across the main Amazon site, its Luxury Stores offshoot, and Amazon-owned Zappos. Although the exact figures depend on who is measuring, most sources agree that Amazon is the dominant force in the e-commerce apparel space, owning something akin to 50% of the online apparel market. Yet its reputation among fashion brands is more mixed, and the proliferation of knockoffs on the platform has scared off high-profile fashion partners
