Plus-size High-fashion Designer Finds Retailers Still Hesitant - Cbs News

"Everyone is kind of shying away from the term 'plus-size.' Plus-size models do not want to be called plus-size. Plus-size brands do not want to be called plus-size. In the meantime, you want our plus-size dollars, but you don't want to be called plus-size. That's a problem," Jones said. Jones said that problem is why high-end fashion designers have been hesitant to create plus-size lines. For designers like Clarke, business is booming -- it's already doubled from last year. She said the same retailers that laughed at her idea initially, have come back with interest.

Solange Had No Words for ?Fashion Police,? but Her Flip of the Hair Spoke Volumes - Yahoo News

(Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP) Story Photos 150225_giuliana_rancic_wenn22222065 LOS ANGELES (AP) Giuliana Rancic is apologizing to Zendaya and others offended by Rancic's "Fashion Police" jab at the actress-singer's Oscar-night dreadlocks. On "E! News" Tuesday, Rancic said the reaction to her comments has increased her awareness of, in her words, "cliches and stereotypes." They are damaging, she said, adding browse that she and others have the responsibility to avoid perpetuating them. During Monday's "Fashion Police" on the E! channel, Rancic said that Zendaya's hair suggested the smell of patchouli oil or marijuana.

The E! talk show isn't the only media outlet guilty of ridiculing the singer for her natural hair , she said.In Touch Weekly"compared it to a dog," she tweeted. In a column last year about pets that resemble celebrities, the gossip magazine reportedly ran a photo of a reader's Yorkshire terrierpoodle mix side by side with a photo of Knowles. "Basically twinsies" was the snarky caption. "What can I say?" tweeted Knowles. Turns out, GIFs speak louder than words. She shrugged off the natural hair haters with one dramatic shake of her voluminous, wavy tresses, captured in a GIF that's been retweeted nearly 20,000 times. Knowles' digital flip of the hair (subbing, perhaps, for her middle finger) came in response to Fashion Police remarks that Zendaya's hair on the Oscar red carpet Sunday night must have smelled like "patchouli oil" or "weed." Zendaya later posted to Instagram that she thought the comments were "not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive." Zendaya accepted Rancic's apology in a tweet Wednesday morning, writing: "Body shaming and other hurtful tactics will never get the job done." She ended with a quote from Martin Luther King Jr.: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.

When chemistry meets couture: Clothes that change color with the climate - CNN.com

"It's like a materials house at Liberty with science and a side of magic. On acid." In that case, Bowker, who masterminds The Unseen's formulas and materials, could be considered the chief magician. Before launching The Unseen in February, she worked as a textiles consultant in a number of fields, from fashion to aviation. In 2013, tired of altering her ideas to meet corporate ends, she decided to venture out on her own with the help of a 25,000 ($38,000) grant from Innovate UK (then known as the Technology Strategy Board), and her best friends Smith and Leask, who are responsible for designing and executing the sculptural pieces. (The trio often describe themselves as "the three witches with one eye" because of their shared creative vision, and each has a flesh-tone tattoo of an eye on their inner finger to drive the point home.) Designing with a higher goal Bowker, who has studied both fashion and chemistry, first started developing responsive color-change compounds while earning her Masters in textiles at the Royal College of Art, inspired by the debilitating spinal condition that has her in and out of hospital. "I really want to create a product range for myself that means that I can monitor my spine and condition," she says.

Inditex bans angora wool products - Feb. 10, 2015

One of the world's biggest fashion firms has banned the sale of angora wool after activists highlighted the cruel treatment of rabbits by farms in China. Inditex, which owns Zara, Massimo Dutti and Bershka, said it would stop selling angora garments in all of its 6,400 shops after facing months of pressure from animal rights campaigners. One campaign against angora wool showed videos of live http://www.chicemma.com rabbits screaming while fur is pulled from their skins on Chinese farms. The footage, obtained by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) at 10 farms in China, also showed rabbits being stretched on boards and cut as their fur is hacked off.

Haute Couture Fashion Week: Schiaparelli - Yahoo News

Haute couture fashion week: Christian Dior - Yahoo News

While Versace chose to play up feminine curves in sensual, close-fitting gowns, Schiaparelli presented only a couple of tight dresses. Instead, the focus in this collection is on ample tailoring and fluid fabrics, with a particular emphasis on wide-legged pants. The waists are typically worn high, sometimes even just above the chest. The fashion house's signature design codes are well represented, as seen in the wide and prominent shoulders in a number of looks. The prints are abstract, with loads of flashy colors (green, red, orange), a few darker shades (midnight blue, brown, pastel blue, black, white) and shimmery accents. One of the most remarkable pieces was a blue pantsuit decorated with mirrors. But the real showstopper was Schiaparelli's eccentric wedding gown: a trench-style mini-dress in glittery gold fabric, complete with a long train in the same material.

A crowd of celebrities came out to view Raf Simons' latest collection, which has a distinctly retro feel. On a giant platform outside the Parisian museum today, models showcased the 1960s-inspired looks of the Christian Dior Spring-Summer 2015 haute couture collection. The designer chose to play with contrasting volumes, namely in long, loose and transparent trench coats worn over embroidered mini-dresses. Flared skirts also made a strong showing, echoing the French fashion house's signature design codes. Colorful stripe motifs are a recurring theme in the collection, along with other groovy geometric prints seen in jumpsuits, bodysuits and dresses.

For women who are just starting out, buying a fun outfit makes them feel good. It makes them feel like they fit in, said Cambria, a Williamsville resident.

Local Police Officers Attend Funeral For Murdered Nypd Officer « Cbs Chicago

Facebook/Penny Dreadful Showtime has released its first teaser for the second season of its surprise hit Penny Dreadful. The trailer gives fans their first glimpse of each character after the shocking finale of Season 1. The trailer features a cryptic message from Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) as she discusses a vans shoes curse that shes come to look at as a blessing. This is likely a reference to [WARNING: SPOILER AHEAD] the demon possessing her that she may or may not want gone, as noted by Entertainment Weekly . The first season of Penny Dreadful focused on a band of misfits in Victorian-era London who are brought together when vampires and other supernatural forces intrude on their lives. The show draws heavily from literary monsters and science-fiction novels frequently associated with that time period: Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman and others. When last we left these characters, Ives learned of the demon inside her and was burdened with the question of whether to exorcise it. A priest told her he could remove it and make her normal -- but, in true Penny Dreadful fashion, wanted to know if she even wished to be normal.

Another popular story came out of the Dearborn Police Department when an HIV-positive woman, Shalandra Jones of Detroit, filed a lawsuit against the department alleging that her constitutional rights were violated during a traffic stop in 2012. The case still is pending, according to court documents. Moving into February, crime dominated the news.

Terry and Costa keep Chelsea top of tree - Yahoo Sports

View photo People doing last minute Christmas shopping on Oxford Street in central London on December 23, 2014 (AFP Photo/Justin Tallis) London (AFP) - Hundreds of thousands of bargain-seekers stormed British shops as post-Christmas sales began on Friday, in what one department store said was its most successful ever year. read more... A crowd of 4,000 gathered on London's main shopping site Oxford Street outside the Selfridges department store ahead of its opening at 09:00 GMT. Selfridges said some shoppers began queueing at 22:30 GMT the day before on Christmas day, lured by discounts of up to 70 percent. Within an hour tills at the flagship British fashion and luxury store took in over 2 million pounds ($3.11 million, 2.55 million euros) -- the department store's most successful hour on record, the shop said. "It's the first time I'm shopping on Boxing Day, and queueing up and this is amazing," said Jenny, a tourist from Malaysia who was waiting outside the store. "I've been waiting here outside the doors since 8:30 so it's not too bad," said Tahira, another tourist from Malaysia. "I'm expecting to get a good bargain." Selfridges said it expected 160,000 customers to visit the store by closing time, compared to a usual figure of 250,000 customers a week.

Post-Christmas sales see strong start in Britain - Yahoo News

London (AFP) - Chelsea showed why they are the Premier League leaders with a comprehensive 2-0 dismissal of London neighbours West Ham United in Friday's early Boxing Day fixture. John Terry and Diego Costa were the men on target as Jose Mourinho's side moved six points ahead of second-place Manchester City, who are in action later in the day. West Ham had begun the day in fourth place, but the gulf in class between the two teams was apparent throughout, with Chelsea's Eden Hazard the game's most eye-catching performer. Andy Carroll volleyed wide in the first minute as West Ham -- criticised by Mourinho for their defensive tactics in the 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge last season -- indicated they might be more ambitious this time. There was a much better chance for Chelsea soon after when the West Ham defence failed to deal with a cross from Willian that found Oscar , but the recalled Brazilian blasted over with only goalkeeper Adrian to beat. Gary Cahill then headed over from a delivery into the box by fellow centre-back Terry as Chelsea continued to dominate the opening exchanges.

Fashion Blogger Rumi Neely Launches Her Own Clothing Line - Yahoo News

"The things I look out for when looking at clothes are so crazily specific now that it really was a very natural thing to start conceptualizing my own line." Neelys influences for the line run the gamut, from Japanese fashion magazines to "scruffy French actresses," she says, as well as her own native Southern California. "L.A. gets such a bad rap for basically not even caring about fashion but that's completely not my perspective. I love the laid back feeling, the emphasis on dressing down just makes it moreimportant to really have that perfect t-shirt or pajama-ish short.I've lived in a fewdifferent parts of California and they've really all had a part in influencing my normal." Personal favorites from the line include the Kaede shorts ($280), the Zillah slipdress ($300) just cause it's hot, and the Ceven tank ("It's the easiest thing to just throw on and I love the low-cut sides," the blogger notes of the $90 piece). Prior to launching Are You Am I, Neely has already cut her fashion teeth in collaborations with lines including The Reformation and Dannijo, and in modeling campaigns for Free People, go RVCA and Forever 21. Made in downtown Los Angeles, the brand which Neely has slowly revealed on her Instagram will be sold at The Grove in Los Angeles as part of a holiday pop-up in collaboration with Revolve Clothing, just in time for the holidays.

Barbie Fashion Design Maker Review & Rating | Pcmag.com

Of course! Why not two? View all 13 photos in gallery You can also take or import your own photos to slap on Barbie's torso. Keeping with the tech theme, I made snazzy dresses featuring the glowing visages of Elon Musk, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and Mark Zuckerberg, not to mention a dress with the PCMag logo . My Sheryl Sandberg dress was not cooperating, but if you'd like to use your words, you can type sayings on Barbie's clothing, so perhaps a "Lean In" ensemble is in the cards. To print out your creations, you can connect to an inkjet printer via Wi-Fi on your tablet and do so wirelessly, or email yourself a PDF and print out using your PC. Those who buy the Barbie Fashion Design Maker kit get a Barbie who comes with a hard plastic tube top and skirt that you cannot remove, atop which you'll affix your printed designs.

Also, animal print is cute and goes quickly in the jewelry and purses and such. Colors & Textures Leather of all kinds is going to be everywhere, Surrency said. Be it in pleated skirts, leggings, or jackets. They look great paired with different textures like a great sweater or a fur vest. Campbell agreed. We're seeing a lot of leather, like leather detailing on dresses and full, completely leather dresses which kind of bring a little bit of edge.

Watch: The Trailer For Upcoming Maurizio Cattelan Documentary - Forbes

View photo A model wears a creation from the Triton Winter collection during the Sao Paulo Fashion Week in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014. (AP Photo/Nelson Antoine) SAO PAULO (AP) -- A bevy of top Brazilian models lent their star power to day three of Sao Paulo fashion week, but Wednesday's uncontested catwalk sensation was Darth Vader. It's not every day the black cape-clad "Star Wars" villain struts his stuff on the runway, flanked by two stormtroopers packing serious firepower. The "Star Wars"-themed fall-winter 2015 collection at Triton was the ostensible reason behind Vader's catwalk cameo, with models sporting black hooded Obi-Wan Kenobi capes over their mini dresses and leggings fitted with lozenge-shaped appliques that evoked an urban take on a stormtrooper's plastic armor. Despite the "Star Wars" star power at Triton, the most applauded collection of the day, clothes-wise, was Iodice's tribal chic, floppy little dresses that quivered with fringe and swam in graphic prints. The Santa Fe sophisticate look at Sacada was another winner, with its pastel hued cocoon coats covered in geometric, vaguely Native American designs.

Dachau: Gate with 'Arbeit macht frei' Nazi sign stolen - CNN.com

the memory of the crimes committed in this place" The Arbeit Macht Frei" sign at the Auschwitz camp in Poland was stolen in 2009 (CNN) -- An iron gate with the notorious Nazi slogan "Arbeit Macht Frei" has been stolen from the former Dachau concentration camp in Germany, officials said. The slogan, which translates as "Work sets you free," became emblematic of the forced labor camps of World War II in which so many inmates died. The gate was stolen overnight from Saturday to Sunday, officials at the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial said in an online statement. While this is the first such theft at Dachau, it's not the first time that the slogan has been targeted by thieves. The famous "Arbeit Macht Frei" sign at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland was stolen in 2009. It was discovered shortly afterward cut into three pieces. "Work sets you free," the gate reads.

Designer Spotlight: Biz Travel Packing Made Easy - Forbes

The presumed soon-to-be leader of a GOP-controlled Senate started by briefly reviewing his takeaways from the election, including unhappiness with dysfunction in Washington . He then named some of the people who had called him that day: President Obama, Senate majority leader Harry Reid, House Speaker John Boehner. Pause. And Ted Cruz , too. An understated smile crossed his face, and a few of the reporters chuckled at his inclusion of the fiery, tea party senator from Texas in this A list of power brokers. Senator Cruz can do serious damage to Senator McConnells stated intention to work together with the president on issues where they can agree.

Beauty & Style: Fashion - Kfda - Newschannel 10 / Amarillo News, Weather, Sports

I kicked off my career at the age of 19, contributing to GQ India's digital platform about the soirees hosted by Italian designers. As a fashion journalist I work with international editions of GQ and Vogue, in addition to having covered fashion events from New York to Kingston, by way of Lagos and http://www.chicemma.com back to Milan. I know, all of this sounds pretty depressing, right? It gets worse. Throughout my career, among the names I've scored interviews with are Roberto Cavalli, Giuseppe Zanotti, the Dsquared2 twins and your favourite Victoria's Secret models. Though Milan is the place I call home today, I'm Dutch according to my passport, yet I'm of Surinamese heritage (you might want to Google map that). Follow me on Instagram @declaneytan for more.

Stars Hit The Mark With Emmy Fashion | TheLedger.com

Leading the list of best fashions for the night was January Jones in a patterned red strapless gown by Prabal Gurung with a voluminous bottom and asymmetrical hemline. Taylor Schilling rivaled her ravishing looks with a beautifully beaded slimming halter dress in a subtle nude shade by Zuhair Murad. Meanwhile, Sofia Vergara made sure all eyes were on her (seriously, she walked the carpet minus hunky boyfriend and Pittsburgh native Joe Manganiello because "he's too hot," she said) in a structured white Roberto Cavalli. Hayden Panettiere also was glowing and it wasn't just because she's pregnant. Her glittering Lorena Sarbu pick with plunging neckline fit and flattered her baby bump in all the right ways. Style standouts among the ladies in red (and various other iterations of raspberry and burgundy) were Christina Hendricks, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Claire Danes. Heidi Klum opted for a refreshingly sleek and simple Zac Posen frock in coral with a flowing back, while Zooey Deschanel popped in a pink Oscar de la Renta that complemented her complexion.

German Web Fashion Retailer Zalando Turns Profit Before Ipo - Bloomberg

Mobile accounted for 41 percent of traffic in the second quarter as its app was downloaded 3.8 million times. In a bid to lower costs related to customer returns -- about half of goods sold come back -- Zalando ran a test in Germany , making returns less convenient for some customers and found that sales and profit from those buyers sunk, said Ritter. E-commerce companies have to live with high return rates as shoppers expect the convenience, he said. The company, created from the Berlin-based Samwer brothers Rocket Internet Rocket Internet incubator, has picked Credit Suisse Group AG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley to manage the IPO, people familiar with the matter have said.

Trash Clash: Someone Spending Big Bucks to Stop Marine Transfer Station - Yahoo News

"It just started out as a really fun hobby and it grew into a business over the years," Taylor said at her Austin, Texas, home, where she's converted one room into a studio and another into an office. She added, "I just really fell in love with it the way I fell in love with art, and I realized that I just had so much fun connecting the two." With inspiration from an abstract mixed media painting she did when she was younger that includes reds, grays, blues, mustard yellow and neutral earthy tones, Taylor created a fall line with a "street grunge vibe" and "modern hippie" inspiration. "It all started with the colors of the painting for me," Taylor said. Jennifer Jackson Brown, a corporate merchandise manager for Nordstrom, said Taylor's line was a good fit for their juniors section. She said that at the same time she was contacted by Taylor's camp, her team had been trying to track Taylor down after seeing her on a television appearance.

13-year-old Texas fashion designer finds success - Yahoo News

A very interesting piece in Crain's reveals that opponents of the Upper East Side Marine Transfer Station have been spending a surprising (or maybe not that surprising) amount of money in their ongoing efforts to block the project. Pledge 2 Protect, the group that has been leading the charge, has spent more than $1.2 million and raised $963,000 since last April, disclosures show. And where is all that money coming from? Therein lies the rub. $690,000 has come from or, rather, through a boutique law firm by the name of Marquart & Small, which is based out of Flatiron, has three employees, specializes in fashion, arts and media, and would seem to have little vested interested in whether or not there is a garbage station at East 91st Street. Crain's, and http://www.chicemma.com some legal experts they found, posit that the law firm is being used as a "pass-through" to allow people or groups to donate to the cause anonymously, taking advantage of a loophole in the 2011 ethics law reform that was meant to eliminate that sort of thing. "These privileged Nimby forces don't seem to think any rules apply to them," the executive director of the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance told Crain's.

Westwood In Three-way Tie For Lead, Tiger Toils - Yahoo News

Best Of Copenhagen Fashion Week Style | StyleBlazer

Open. "A lot of bad shots and I never got a putt to the hole. For some reason, I thought they were going to be a little bit quicker and I didn't make the adjustment well enough. "My swing was dialled in on that (practice) range out there. Unfortunately, I didn't carry it to the golf course." Woods dropped his first shot of the day at the par-three 11th where he missed the green to the right, then chipped 13 feet past the cup before failing to make the par putt. His tee shot at the par-three 14th sailed way left and again he failed to get up and down for par, but he picked up an unlikely birdie at the par-four 16th when he holed out from 34 yards in the middle of the fairway.

Fashion Meets Music Festival's Inclusion Of R. Kelly Raising Objections | The Columbus Dispatch

The Columbus folk-rock quartet Saintseneca, whose music in recent months has gained a national profile, mentioned Kelly on Tuesday night in announcing its departure. We feel his selection as a performer ignores his very serious allegations of sexual violence and assault, the group said in an online statement, referring to his 2008 acquittal on 14 child-pornography charges tied to a graphic sex tape allegedly depicting him with an underage girl. The festival, a first-year event scheduled for Aug. 29-31 in and near the Arena District, is intended to blend the talents of bands and clothing designers. The withdrawal of Saintseneca this week follows the July 3 departure of Damn the Witch Siren. The central Ohio electro-pop duo, which criticized the June 25 announcement of Kellys inclusion, met with festival organizers but ultimately opted to break its contract.

Indians righthander Danny Salazar had to settle for a no decision after holding the Astros to three hits and two runs (one earned) with two walks and seven strikeouts over six innings. Righthander Scott Atchison, lefthander Bryan Shaw and righthander Cody Allen, the winning pitcher, each contributed a scoreless inning of relief for the Indians. Buchanan wouldnt have been pitching in the ninth if the Astros offense had mounted a better attack. They have been held to six hits over the first two games of the series. Their victory on Friday night was actually their first since June 3, 2013, in a game in which they were held to three or fewer hits.

"The challenge with Genet is to not smooth over the dangerous, often ugly, underbelly of his work," Blanchett told Playbill. "His obsession with murder, death, claustrophobia, brutality, dominance and submission. That's why it was so exciting to work on a new adaptation, which was at once brutal, shocking, lyrical and poetic." Read the full interview here.

India outrage over fashion shoot echoing gang-rape - Yahoo News

The parallels in the fashion shoot drew anger on Twitter, with users describing the images as "shocking", "disgusting" and "mind boggling". In a blog for The Times of India, Delhi-based journalist Rudroneel Ghosh described the project as a "huge blunder". "When you get models to dress up in stylish couture and enact a gang-rape scene, but minus the dread and terror, you end up glamourising a crime against women," he said. Four men were convicted and sentenced to death last year over the 2012 attack. Another was found dead in his cell in an apparent suicide and a juvenile was sentenced to the maximum of three years in detention.

Can Marimekko Go From Cult Design Brand To Fashion Empire? | Co.design | Business + Design

The complaint was filed Monday and accuses the government of lacking transparency during a public consultation period as Nygard seeks to rebuild his 150,000-square-foot (13,935-square-meter) complex in the exclusive community at the western tip of New Providence island, home to the capital of Nassau. A Nygard spokesman did not return messages for comment. The complex, heavily damaged in a 2009 fire that authorities say was accidental, had been featured on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and on "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous." Visitors to the compound before the fire included former U.S. President George Bush, actor Robert DeNiro and late singer Michael Jackson. Those who filed the complaint accuse the government of withholding public records related to work on Nygard's compound. They also say Nygard, owner of Canada's largest apparel company, previously caused significant environmental damage during continuing renovations that they say occurred without the required permits.

Paris (AFP) - Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld on Tuesday delighted haute couture's new breed of deep-pocketed customer with a collection just like them -- young, modern and in many cases Asian. Boyish, spiky-haired models wore hats perched on the back of their heads, cycling shorts and flat sandals with ribbons tied in a bow around the ankle. Bags with long straps were slung around the body like school satchels. Asked about the collection's youthful feel, the designer joked that not many customers were interested in clothes with an "old" feel.

Banana Republic, maker of practical wrinkle-free dress shirts and flattering fit-and-flare frocks, is not typically at the forefront of fashion trends. But it is savvy about marketing. While dozens of mass retailers have tried to make designer collaborations work--like the upcoming Joseph Altuzarra for Target and Alexander Wang for H&M--few are so successful that theyre willing to brag about it. Yet Banana Republics partnerships--including multiple Mad Men collections and one-off projects with designers such as Trina Turk and Roland Mouret--have been a place of pride for the brand. (The Mad Men line has been highlighted on earnings calls.) Im an idealistic person.
