“will fashion police continue without joan”

“There’s a mob mentality that has developed,” said Lauren Santo Domingo, a founder of Moda Operandi, an online fashion retailer, who said she was standing behind Marchesa. On Wednesday, the brand postponed a planned preview of its spring 2018 collection to an unspecified “later date.” The company is hunkering down, and could not be reached for comment.
The reason that there is not a strong distinction between the dress of children and that of adults is that children, sometimes even toddlers, were expected to act like miniature adults. Childhood was not a supported idea in that time period, at least not in the way that children are encouraged to play and run around and not worry about anything, as children are seen today.

The chain had promised we’d green shoots of a turnaround this past spring, and Peck says Gap has made strides in getting its fit and styling right. But comparable sales have been flat or negative every month this year.
Description Girls clothing from the year 1923 reflects the styles of adult clothing with a variety of designs. Some of the frocks are two-piece ensembles and others are dresses with a dropped waist or ruffled detail, still all girlish but more indicative of the adult fashion of the times. Many of the dresses feature bow and tie details as well as checked details or intricate trimming.
Meanwhile, the luxury end of the childrenswear market is growing, fuelled by older parents in Western markets — who are further along in their careers and thus likely to have a higher disposable income — and increased demand from emerging markets, “where aspirational consumption lends itself well to lavishly spending on children,” says Kissane. Indeed, in China, the government’s one-child policy, coupled with increased spending power within households and parents’ desire to give their children benefits the previous generation lacked, has given rise to “Little Emperor syndrome”, a term coined to describe the tendency of Chinese households to spend heavily on only children.
Description Sweaters and skirts in wool and velveteen were popular for teenage girls in 1953. Younger girls wore dresses of chromespun acetate taffeta and nylon blouses. And, denim slacks with flannel lining and shirts were popular with girls of all ages. Color-blocking, check patterns, plaids and stripes featured predominantly that year.
Growing up loafers always reminded me of something that Alex P. Keaton would sport. Years later it seemed like it was part of the traditional wardrobe of the IT department. But times they-are-a-changing and the loafers this season are debuting in a variety of colors (like blue and cognac) and materials (suede and leather). Don’t […]
When A$AP Rocky broke through, he made a pitch to the fashion world: will you have me? His lyrics insisted that he was in possession not only of the right swag (“Raf Simons, Rick Owens usually what I’m dressed in”), but also a connoisseur’s eye (“I see your Jil Sanders, Oliver Peoples / Costume National, your Ann Demeulemeester”). Overtures are one thing; having them reciprocated is another – yet designers have since clutched Rocky to their bosom. These days, the Harlem rapper is as at home on the front row as he is behind a mixing desk, with a JW Anderson collaboration and Guess capsule range to his name. More significantly, in 2016, he was anointed a face of Dior Homme, the first black person to front the label. So how did he penetrate fashion’s inner sanctum? Simple: his personal style was as bold as his songs proclaimed. Whether it was his early street goth phase – essentially, head-to-toe Black Scale – his esoteric-haute-couture period or current somewhere-in-the-middle sweet spot, he has always committed wholeheartedly to streetwear trends while taking some notable risks in the process (looking at you, dress-length shirt). “I swear we gon’ have drama if you touch my tailored garments,” he raps on Live.Love.A$AP. No doubt. Charlie Burton, Senior Commissioning Editor at GQ

“London’s mayor looks good, so by extension the city he’s running looks good too. His efficiently no-nonsense Mayor-meets-Everyman uniform of white shirt and notch-collar jackets – The Mayor reputedly favours Zara – is spiked by an intriguing hint of dissent. He’ll only put on a tie when he really has to, plus his favourite shoes are rubber-soled brown brogues.” Luke Leitch, fashion writer
Description Large plaids in reds, oranges, greens and blues were fun fashion fare for girls in 1969. Pants-dresses, double-breasted jackets with flared slacks, and overall-jumpers were fun fashion statements along with ruffled shirts and turtlenecks.
For Abe it never seemed to be a challenge at all, and if it was a burden, it was also a gift: From the moment he became himself, what made Abe different—from his siblings, from classmates, from most of the children who have ever lived—was the degree of comfort he felt with being different. Everybody wants to stand out from the crowd, but so few of us have the knack, and fewer still the stomach for bearing up under the crush of conformity. It was always Abe’s rare gift not just to stand out, and bear up, but to do those things with panache. And the way in which he expressed his difference most reliably, and with the greatest panache, was through dressing up.
USA Today tallied the heavy-handed Trump litigation strategy back in June 2016. Over three decades, Trump fought 3,500 lawsuits—and faced 200 mechanic’s liens—mostly arising from disputes over unpaid bills. His strategy was to contest everything, and never quit: “The Trump teams financially overpower and outlast much smaller opponents, draining their resources. Some just give up the fight, or settle for less; some have ended up in bankruptcy or out of business altogether.”
When Eric Stubin, owner of Trans-Americas, president of the Council for Textile Recycling and president of the Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles Association, takes me on a tour of the warehouse, he pauses while a forklift scurries around the corner with a bale of garments and neatly stacks it in a tall, dense wall of clothing, before shooting back around the corner to grab another from a semi that’s backed up to the loading bay. Workers stand in front of conveyor belts making split-second assessments as they mine the castoffs for valuable pieces. Sometimes, they find a gem—a pair of vintage Levi’s, an ugly Christmas sweater, an army jacket—and toss it into a small bin full of other covetable items, which Trans-Americas can sell at a markup to vintage stores in Brooklyn. But that’s just about 2 percent of what they get. The rest is sorted into broad categories, like T-shirts, pants or cold-weather items, then divided again by quality and material.
When I was first allowed into an Oscar de la Renta boutique, reviewing retail for The New York Times, I found the garments mind-blowing. I clutched the insanely craft-saturated sleeves and stared into them like kaleidoscopes, wondering, “How many nuns went blind?” Layers upon layers of meticulous, eye-crossing detail created a mesmerizing depth of texture. There was so much going on: whole landscapes and leitmotifs wrought in black beads and marabou feathers; drapes and pin-tucks of such alien perfection and accuracy that the dresses looked like they were built by the Pixie Corps of Engineers.

Remember when see-now-buy-now was fashion’s hottest buzzword? In 2018, that will be replaced by coed. Following Gucci’s move early this year, over a dozen fashion brands have announced that they will be blending their men’s and women’s shows. With tired notions of gendered fashion going by the wayside, this is a phenomenon we expect to stick around for a while.
Tired of millennial pink? The sorbet hue is not going anywhere, but we predict the color is going to be joined by other pastels as the palette for spring. Make way for lavender, which cropped up during New York Fashion Week spring shows like Victoria Beckham and continued through Paris. Beckham herself wore lavender-hued shoes to her show, visible when she came out to take her bow. Mint also popped up in a number of designer collections for next year.
Larger companies such as Forever 21 have their own trend departments where they follow the styles, fabrics, and colors for the upcoming seasons. This can also be referred to as vertical integration.[1] A company with its own trend department has a better advantage than those who do not because its developers are able to work together to create a unified look for their sales floor. Each seasonal collection offered by a product developer is the result of trend research focused on the target market it has defined for itself.
One of spring’s biggest trends has carried over into fall, for no other reason than to provide some serious shoe candy (that and the fact that bejeweled shoes make great red carpet contenders). Miuccia Prada’s Miu Miu girl is queen of the jewelry shoe, and this season was no different. Meanwhile, Bruno Frisoni’s swan song for Roger Vivier included plenty of diamond-like baguette crystal embellishments and colored-stone cluster details, many of which felt very close to the real deal.
