There is an indulged weakness evident: The ideal-society wife is made into a streamlined, luxury toddler. Many pieces evoke the Pampered-with-a-capital-P innocence of the nursery, yet defy the vigor of either youth or sex. In the baby-doll dresses, there is no ironic infantilism (that flirty, kinderwhore cuteness that winks at pedophilia), but a kind of learned helplessness that waves a limp hand at actual infirmity—the kind of silky pink-bedjacket garments one imagines Sunny von Bulow wore to sleep through parties.
It is a sign of the times, though one with a touch of irony, that for Melania Trump’s official portrait, the first lady chose a black tuxedo jacket complete with black tie at the neck, a formal, almost military, and very covered-up look — as was the Ralph Lauren dress-and-bolero she chose for the inauguration, with its high neck and matching gloves.
Until recently, the dominant fashion in the NBA was a rejection of fashion, or at least high fashion. Players tended to favor jerseys, T-shirts, warm-ups, and do-rags. Then, in 2005, NBA Commissioner David Stern decided to institute a dress code to clean up what he regarded as the league’s thuggish image. His decision, which some criticized for its undercurrent of white paternalism, initially caused a furor. But it worked better than he could have imagined and sent the league rocketing off in a new direction.

Berlin is the centre of fashion in Germany (prominently displayed at Berlin Fashion Week), while Düsseldorf holds Europe’s largest fashion trade fairs with Igedo. Other important centres of the scene are Munich, Hamburg, and Cologne. German fashion is famed for its elegant lines as well as unconventional young designs and the great variety of styles.
Corsets, seamed tights, and skirts covering the knees were no longer fashionable. The idea of buying urbanized clothing that could be worn with separate pieces was intriguing to women of this era. In the past, one would only buy specific outfits for certain occasions.
For those without chemistry degrees, C2H4 is the molecular formula for ethylene, which ripens plants. C2H4 Los Angeles is a streetwear brand committed to being not just another streetwear brand. It is designed by Yixi Chen, who comes from Shanghai and has a thing for denim. July 13, 7 p.m.
Mary Quant and Andre Courreges both contributed to the invention of miniskirt during the 1960s. Mary Quant, A British designer, was one of the pioneers of the miniskirt during 1960. She named the skirt after her favorite car, the Mini Cooper. Quant introduced her design in the mid-60s at her London boutique, Bazaar. She has said: “ We wanted to increase the availability of fun for everyone. We felt that expensive things were almost immoral and the New Look was totally irrelevant to us.” Miniskirts became popular in London and Paris and the term “Chelsea Look” was coined.
Evening dresses were the exception. They were spaghetti strapped or halter topped that revealed shoulders and chests but only mild cleavage. Skirts were long and full in the early ’40s and sleek by the end of the decade.

Most Japanese fashion houses are in Tokyo. The Japanese look is loose and unstructured (often resulting from complicated cutting), colours tend to the sombre and subtle, and richly textured fabrics. Famous Japanese designers include Kenzo Takada, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo.
Ryan Skelton is a Mississippi native who worked in the Hattiesburg store in college. He is now a sales manager in New York for the French luxury brand Chloé, and a graduate of the U.A.L. school of fashion. “Melody wants to bring her passion and knowledge of the fashion industry to people who don’t know,” Mr. Skelton said. “To see them buy their first designer garment.”
If there is one hard-and-fast fashion rule that has applied to all first ladies of the modern era, it is to buy and wear American-made (or at least American-designed) clothing, even on the campaign trail. Jackie Kennedy’s official designer, Oleg Cassini, was a U.S. Army veteran. Nancy Reagan wore James Galanos, Bill Blass, Adolfo and Geoffrey Beene, often in patriotic “Reagan Red.” Barbara and Laura Bush lived in clothes by Dominican-American Oscar de la Renta and Arnold Scaasi, a Canadian-born New Yorker. Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits were by Ralph Lauren. Michelle Obama put her own spin on patriotic dressing, supporting young Seventh Avenue designers—often designers of color—rather than established industry stalwarts. (Another one of her innovations was mixing designer pieces with inexpensive basics from J. Crew and Gap—clothes any American woman could afford.)
After his tour of New Zealand, the young prince arrived in neighbouring Australia dressed in a Les Petites Abeilles romper suit that riffed on the nautical theme again. Besotted customers were added to a two-month waiting list.

You’re sure to score the best styles of every trend right here. Look to asymmetrical structured tops and off-the-shoulder fluid blouses for those add-ons that make things like a pencil skirt or skinny jeans feel new again. Look to colors like royal blue, siren red and purple to uplift all of the neutrals already in your closet. For one-stop fashion look to dresses in everything from classic sheath styles to the ever-so-trendy ruffled off-the-shoulder options in silk blends in colors like copper and silver. These are the fresh new frocks for the season. Dress them down with a denim jacket or add a crushed velvet blazer plus tights and knee-high boots when it’s cold out.
For star athletes, fashion has become more than a hobby. It’s a critical component of their public identity, their “brand soul,” as Marc Beckman, Westbrook’s business partner and principal at creative agency DMA United, calls it. Westbrook’s image as a risk taker and innovator could serve him well in the fashion role he envisions for himself once his playing days have ended. The fleeting nature of athletic celebrity will make this difficult. Only Michael Jordan has built a fashion empire that’s outlasted his playing career, and his has been limited to athletic wear. Westbrook has similar plans, but he’s starting with high fashion.
Suit skirts were A-line, not pencil. This means they flared out gradually from the hip to the knee. Dresses from the early years didn’t have any pleats or gathers because that wasted fabric. The later ’40s had some pleats and a wide “A” shape and even included some pockets. Teenagers were the biggest fans of skirts. They loved plaids and stripes and full skirts making the latest fad– swing dancing– easier to move in. Learn more about 1940s skirt history and shop 1940s skirts.

It’s a look which Estelle Lee sees as part of a backlash against the cult of the celebrity mini-me. “Designers like Elfie or Rachel Riley are paying homage to a childhood from yesteryear. Enid Blyton would be delighted with Caramel Baby & Child’s schoolgirl knitwear or La Coqueta’s Peter Pan collars. With increasingly complex lives, the middle classes are trying to fetishise the childhoods of their youth with mary janes, long socks and smocking.” This might explain why Prince George shifts so many products – his pantaloons might charm people as much as his pedigree.
This week marked the 50th anniversary of the first—and only—fashion show ever held in the White House. While the February 29, 1968, event hosted by first lady Lady Bird Johnson has been virtually forgotten today, it received extensive and glowing media coverage at the time. Before the show, organizers and journalists even predicted that it would become an annual occurrence—a permanent fixture on the American fashion calendar along with Press Week and the Party of the Year, now respectively known as New York Fashion Week and the Met Ball.
