Fall’s Top Trends Combine The Best Parts Of Party Fashion & Leisurewear

In February, when fall ‘21 collections were presented — most often digitally with a few IRL exceptions — we had little idea of what the future would look like, in fashion or life in general. The U.S. was roughly two months into its vaccine rollout, with other countries following suit at varying paces. And yet we were still living by COVID’s rules, unsure of what the next week would hold, let alone the next six months, when said fall collections were to be released.

More than half a year later, with February’s collections arriving in stores by the truckload, we’re

In the late summer of 1986, I packed up my things and, with my 1-year-old son, moved to Detroit to begin writing about fashion for the News. I was 30, and I remember thinking that the true fashion of America was vernacular. It was the plain cotton dress, the beauty of the useful garment or the secondhand shirt. But, equally, it

Can AR kickstart demand for fashion NFTs?

Now, as the initial NFT hype wave crests, brands are exploring different options. In-game NFTs have proven successful among brands including Louis Vuitton and Burberry; $395,000 worth of Burberry NFTs sold out on Mythical Games’ Blankos Block Party in a few minutes. Augmented reality is emerging as another early winner that can serve as luxury’s entry point to NFTs, thanks to engaging nature and real-life applications. Experts say getting these use cases right is essential if fashion NFTs are to command the same prices as, for example, real-life Birkins.

“The ultimate goal of an NFT, be it an avatar, image,

Best Minimalist Fashion for Women on Amazon

After a Year of Digital Shows, Do We Still Need IRL Fashion Week?

Fashion week is in a bit of a strange place right now. It’s not just that the thought of congregating in a tiny space to look at clothes feels somewhat jarring (to put it lightly), when there’s an ongoing pandemic and so much of the world is still tip-toeing in and out of lockdowns. It’s also that the whole concept of fashion shows, where people fly from all over the world to see collections that won’t be released for another six months, seems odd in an era of smartphones and instant gratification, not to mention our growing awareness of the

Shein: The secretive Chinese upstart ‘making fast fashion look slow’

“It kind of becomes a habit,” said the 20-year-old Hong Kong University student. “Before sleeping, I’m just like, ‘Okay, check in.'”

The platform Sachan is using belongs to a Chinese brand called Shein — pronounced “She In” — which has rapidly attracted a global army of teen fans on TikTok.

“They’re making fast fashion look slow,” said Erin Schmidt, a senior analyst at Coresight Research, a global advisory and research firm specializing in retail and technology. “They’ve changed the model.”

Sachan checks the Shein app daily for the same reason many others do: to get points. The more you get,
