Bloggers and Editors Continue to Vie for Fashion Fans' Attention Dressed in a red top, fuchsia pleated skirt and fluffy boa worn on the shoulder, fashion blogger Beatrice Balaj poses for pictures in her front row seat at a New York catwalk show. She is among a number of bloggers who use the internet and social media to cover the biannual womenswear events in New York, London, Milan and Paris, as well as everyday fashion, and whose power to set trends has grown to rival that of traditional glossy magazines. "We basically show people our lives on-camera and off-camera, and people are interested in that and want to know more," said Balaj, whose Instagram feed carries images from a number of once-exclusive fashion week shows. "We're very influential because people fall in love with our personalities rather than what we do." Reaching consumers via the web or social media platforms, Balaj and other bloggers post snaps of their outfits and images from the shows and may collaborate with brands that sometimes dress them. "(Bloggers) belong to a fashion system that ... has been literally reshaped," said Tommaso Aquilano, creative director at Italian fashion brand Fay. "Influencers and bloggers at the end of the day are the mirror of what people are in everyday lives." But relations with the established fashion media can be frosty. Last year, fashion bible Vogue criticized bloggers in an online post about Read more

The Dior and Saks Collab Benefits Rihanna’s Charity Fashion designers have been using their collections to demonstrate support for charitable causes this year like Planned Parenthood and ACLU, even before the most recent Fashion Week. Indeed, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut Spring 2017 collection featured a much-buzzed about t-shirt emblazoned with the phrase “We Should All Be Feminists,” in a reference to an essay by Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie from 2014. Now, Saks has announced a Saks Fifth Avenue x Dior partnership, involving a new version of the chic tee. The collaboration launches today, with Saks as the exclusive retailer of a black version of the t-shirt, with the text in a white font. The shirt also contributes to a good cause—a portion of the sales are being donated to Rihanna’s nonprofit charity, The Clara Lionel Foundation. A select group of four of the t-shirts ($710), as well as two bags ($2,700), are available online at Saks. The white version of the top, with the text in black, quickly gained a celebrity fanbase—Natalie Portman, Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence and others have already donned the it top, and the new black variation is sure to get a similar following.

Designer calls fashion line ‘antidote to extremism’ A local fashion designer is turning heads – from New York to Sacramento – with a clothing line that infuses traditional Islamic clothing for women with bright colors, soft fabrics and sexy lines. “My clothing is not what you think of when you think Muslim women,” said designer Latiya Gholar, the Sacramento-based clothing designer behind the American Umma collection. Gholar describes her work as a “hybrid collection of traditional Islamic concepts fused with American fashion hinted with futuristic elements of design.” A New York Fashion Week event in early February showcased 21 pieces of her collection. Her work was also featured at Sacramento Fashion Week’s Feb. 23 “Fashion on Film” event. Gholar, 35, began to design clothing that covers the body after her religious conversion to Islam in 2008 and enrollment in fashion school a year later. Her passion for her work led her on a voyage of discovery, learning how different Muslim cultures interpret the Quran’s teachings on the dress of women in different ways. Most Muslim cultures agree the Quran teaches women to dress modestly, however the requirement to wear a veil or hijab and other practices vary among those practicing the religion. Gholar’s outfits have traditional long Read more

With Unravel, Ben Taverniti has mixed L.A. attitude with Parisian street style to create the perfect “models off-duty” label. In just two years, his luxe, made-in-Italy hoodies, bomber jackets and jeans have made fans of Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Rihanna and Beyonce. “L.A. is the vibe, Milan is where we make it happen and Paris is just home,” says Taverniti, who created the line with wife Joyce Bonelli. At age 16, South of France native Taverniti moved to Paris to attend design school. It was the mid-1990s and the street style of Mathieu Kassovitz’s seminal film of that period, La Haine (Hate), about tough youth living in the city’s projects, influenced his style, the designer said during a preview for his label during Paris Fashion Week. Taverniti left for Los Angeles 10 years later, where he’s been a rising design star, first as an assistant to Jeremy Scott and then as creative director of Hudson Jeans. Bonelli has been the Kardashian klan’s makeup artist for a decade, which also explains how Unravel has been able to net so many famous fans so quickly. The husband-and-wife team set out to create the “new essentials ” — which for fall 2017 means cropped silk puffer jackets; Read more

Earlier this year, designers like Heron Preston and Guillaume Henry of Nina Riccipresented the formfitting bodysuit as the more covered-up alternative to the crop top, and it appears that fashion’s most directional dressers are following suit. Earlier today in Milan, just ahead of Fashion Week—which starts tomorrow—Gigi Hadid tested the waters in the look, also sported recently by sister Bella Hadidand Kim Kardashian West, pairing the hip-highlighting style with the new tricky denim silhouette of the season. pics:http://www.marieprom.co.uk Hadid has always experimented with fashion, from adding edgy Dr. Martens to winter white to showing support for her beau, Zayn Malik, by wearing his merch. However, today’s ensemble is a study in elevated wardrobe essentials. Hadid’s olive shearling topper puts a polished spin on the fur-lined army parka and cleverly coordinates with her chocolate top. Swapping out her usual staples of leggings and track pants in favor of distressed denim, Hadid sported a light-wash version with blasted holes at the thighs to show off her runway-ready legs; taupe lace-up booties furthered the elongating effect. Completing the model-off-duty look are retro-inspired round sunnies from Oliver Peoples x The Row—an ideal accent for Hadid to take in the sights ahead of her catwalk duties.

Solange's 'A Seat at the Table' Album Cover Was Inspired by the Mona Lisa Sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles — first and second born of "Mama Tina" Lawson and Mathew Knowles, and the closest thing America has to royalty — blessed the public with an intimate look at their notoriously private relationship for the latest issue of Interview magazine, which features Solange on the cover. (What, your conversations with your siblings aren't cover story-worthy?) Beyonce hopped on the phone with her lil sis to "interview" her for the piece, in which they discussed Solange's work ethic, her appreciation for The Real Housewives of Atlanta ("I love that show and think it's so brilliant because it's the woman that was represented in my childhood in Houston.... I watch it religiously, and I am in stitches the whole time") as well as the inspiration behind her album cover for A Seat at the Table. "I wanted to nod to the Mona Lisa and the stateliness, the sternness that that image has," she told Beyonce. "And I wanted to put these waves in my hair, and to really set the waves, you have to put these clips in. And when Neal, the hair stylist, put the clips in, I remember thinking, Woah, this is the transition, in the same way that I'm speaking about on Read more
