Description Pale yellows and navy blues were the focus of fashion in 1968 for boys. Simple understated plaids and plain stripes adorned the most casual looks while sports jackets that showed off your favorite teams were also popular.
The key to being a great merchandiser is to promote and obtain the goods that are going to be sold to customers. This can involve going to international fashion events, buying fashion goods at market and negotiating with merchants, manufacturers, retailers and designers.
The spring/summer 2018 fashion trends are nothing if not bright, bold and really quite beautiful. In fact, it was a show season full of actual fashion moments, and that’s not hyperbole. I’m talking about the type that had even the coolest fashion critics reaching for their Google Pixel 2 cameraphones. And the one catwalk that really set the tone, impressed everyone and just so happens to tick off almost every S/S 18 trend under the sun was, of course, Versace.
Description Darker tones of blue, gold and green were fashionable for boys in 1969. Striped pants and striped shirts were popular for casual wear along with v-neck and turtleneck pullovers. Double breasted blazers and suit sets with contrasting pieces were great for formal wear.
Description Oranges and gold-tones were popular colors for boys in 1967. Plain pullovers or sweaters with stripes and embroidered detail were amongst the most fashionable and trousers with a single pleat ranked as well.
“It’s not a new phenomenon for women to want their kids to look well turned-out,” agrees Estelle Lee, editor in chief of parenting magazine Smallish. “But the fashion industry has adapted to make children a prime area for growth as our attitudes adapt and society becomes more child-centric. Whether it’s clothes, parties, after-school activities or education, it’s vital for parents to invest in their kids. Lives are busy, and there’s an expectation of return on investment with our children.”
We all know the difference between bad habits and good habits and we all know that spending time on positive habits every single day will take you closer to achieving what you want to achieve… But what are some of those good habits? What should we be doing every single day as men? Today, I’m…
In the fashion industry, intellectual property is not enforced as it is within the film industry and music industry. Robert Glariston, an intellectual property expert, mentioned in a fashion seminar held in LA[which?] that “Copyright law regarding clothing is a current hot-button issue in the industry. We often have to draw the line between designers being inspired by a design and those outright stealing it in different places.” To take inspiration from others’ designs contributes to the fashion industry’s ability to establish clothing trends. For the past few years, WGSN has been a dominant source of fashion news and forecasts in encouraging fashion brands worldwide to be inspired by one another. Enticing consumers to buy clothing by establishing new trends is, some have argued, a key component of the industry’s success. Intellectual property rules that interfere with this process of trend-making would, in this view, be counter-productive. On the other hand, it is often argued that the blatant theft of new ideas, unique designs, and design details by larger companies is what often contributes to the failure of many smaller or independent design companies.
If you know two things about Westbrook, the second is probably the glasses. During the 2012 NBA Finals, when the Thunder took on the Miami Heat, he showed up at a news conference in a colorful Prada shirt and lensless red specs—“nerd glasses,” the press dubbed them—that had a sudden, seismic effect on the sports world and brought together Westbrook’s two great passions: basketball and fashion.
Basketball and fashion. These two worlds intersected only occasionally before 2012. Stylewise, pro sports was a wasteland. Turn on ESPN even today, and you’re confronted by a ghastly array of baggy four-button suits, Chris Berman wearing neckties seemingly on a dare, and Merril Hoge in starched collars, with tie knots as big as satin throw pillows. The jock code frowned on fashion. So when Westbrook wore his famous glasses, the jocks reacted as jocks do—with mockery. The next day, Charles Barkley and the crew of TNT’s Inside the NBA donned red glasses to tweak Westbrook’s unique style. (Barkley, who’s as smooth and round as a 400-pound Milk Dud, typically shrouds himself in suits that resemble gabardine muumuus.)

It is a likeness of a young man, in a silken dressing-gown of an old fashion, the soft richness of which is well adapted to the countenance of reverie, with its full, tender lips, and beautiful eyes, that seem to indicate not so much capacity of thought, as gentle and voluptuous emotion.
“That was when the whole thing started,” says Rachel Johnson, a style strategist at the Thomas Faison Agency, who’s outfitted athletes such as LeBron James, Victor Cruz, and Chris Bosh. As players started dressing up, trends emerged. For a while you couldn’t turn on the 11 p.m. SportsCenter without encountering a parade of NBA prepsters in cardigans, backpacks, and glasses, talking over the evening’s action. Soon, competitiveness kicked in. “The NBA is a never-mentioned-but-everyone-knows-it style competition,” Johnson says. “I’m not in the locker room, but I do know that they talk about each other and have opinions about each other’s style.”
Of the Trumps’ many deviations from presidential precedent, one of the most unremarked is their complete disregard of the first family’s long-perceived duty to support Seventh Avenue. Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka openly promote their made-in-China clothing lines while trumpeting “American First” policies; Melania Trump chose American designers for her Inauguration Day wardrobe but has largely eschewed them ever since, a lapse somewhat masked by the relative infrequency of her public appearances.

“Images of women being intensely beautified, sexualized and shown like dolls over many years has had an impact on me, as believe it has on us all,” Phoebe Philo, the creative director of Céline, wrote in an email. As an alternative, Ms. Philo has focused her work at Céline on designing clothes — often oversize, soft, enveloping — that act almost as a chrysalis from within which the woman can emerge.
There is a type of design called “kutch” design originated from the German word “kitschig” meaning “ugly” or “not aesthetically pleasing.” Kitsch can also refer to “wearing or displaying something that is therefore no longer in fashion.”
