Cyrus debuted her funky jewelry, made of children’s alphabet beads, little toys and lots of other colorful stuff, at designer Jeremy Scott’s show Wednesday in a downtown Manhattan gallery space.

    Vera Wang says she looked back — way back — for her spring collection, recalling the 18th century in France.

  • Colors take front row seat at N.Y. Fashion Week Sep 9, 2014 6:00 AM
    Sunday was a day for remembering and looking ahead as New York Fashion Week continued in Manhattan. Early in the day, one of fashion’s own (albeit a sharp-tongued one) was remembered at Joan Rivers’ funeral.

  • Fashion reflects on Joan Rivers' love-hate legacy Sep 5, 2014 10:19 AM
    In the intense, high-stakes world of fashion, Joan Rivers helped change the game. “For me, she was the most instrumental person because she changed the dialogue in fashion forever,” said Fern Mallis, the creator of New York Fashion Week. Rivers was the first on a red carpet to stick a microphone in a star's face and ask about clothes. It was there she created one of her trademarks: Her inimitable, “Who are you wearing?”

  • Jeans face an uncertain future amid yoga wear rage Sep 5, 2014 10:01 AM
    Americans’ obsession with jeans is beginning to wear thin. Jeans long have been a go-to staple in closets across the country. After all, not many pieces of clothing are so comfortable they can be worn daily, yet versatile enough to be dressed up or down. But sales of the iconic blues fell 6 percent during the past year after decades of almost steady growth. Why? People more often are sporting yoga pants and leggings instead of traditional denim.

  • Reds, blues dominate Emmy Awards red carpet Aug 26, 2014 6:15 AM
    Lena Dunham showed up for the Emmys in an awkward pink confection and Kerry Washington went for a bright orange dress with dark sparkle peeking out from underneath, but it was the reds and blues that dominated the carpet Monday.

    Kale has crept out of salads and juicers into beauty products from niche and mainstream sellers.

And next spring, Steele’s museum — with the help of FIT graduate students learning how to curate — will fulfill its promise in a show focused on five designers who helped define Bacall’s subtle seductiveness.
