  • Vera Wang channels Marie Antoinette, Versailles Sep 10, 2014 5:49 AM
    Vera Wang says she looked back — way back — for her spring collection, recalling the 18th century in France. The white gravel covering the floor at her runway show in a Chelsea gallery was there to evoke the same gravel at the Tuileries Gardens in Paris, and her sumptuous garments to evoke thoughts of Marie Antoinette and Versailles (in early, happy times, of course.)

     
  • 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. Victoria Beckham took a conservative approach to spring 2015; Joseph Altuzarra went for girly naivete inspired by Roman Polanski and Stanley Kubrick. Here are more highlights.

     
  • Peter Som makes olive green fun for spring Sep 6, 2014 1:01 AM
    Peter Som, a favorite of first lady Michelle Obama, ramped up the fun Friday, with olive green in broad stripes and bold florals on his New York Fashion Week runway. Som transitioned from easy living dresses, flouncy short skirts and sturdy jackets and coats for day to a series of gold lame looks for evening, offering a youthful flourish with flowery appliques on numerous outfits.

     
  • E!’s ‘Police’ future uncertain after Rivers’ death Sep 5, 2014 5:30 AM
    The E! network says no decisions have been made about the future of “Fashion Police” in the wake of Joan Rivers’ death. The network said in a statement that its “mourning our beloved Joan, and will respond at a later date with further programming updates.” Rivers’ daughter, Melissa Rivers, is its executive producer.

     
  • 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.

     
  • 13-year-old Texas fashion designer finds success Aug 28, 2014 6:28 AM
    At the age of 9, Isabella Rose Taylor — a painter since she was 3 — took a weeklong sewing class with an eye toward incorporating textiles into her artwork. She quickly discovered a love for fashion design as well, taking the class twice more that summer. Now, at 13, her line is debuting at Nordstrom stores this fall and she’s set to hold her first show at New York Fashion Week. “It just started out as a really fun hobby, and it grew into a business over the years,” Taylor said.

     
  • 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. And neutrals, too. On Team Red were Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who looked a bit pinched in a tight Carolina Herrera, and Christina Hendricks in a gaudy, one-shoulder Marchesa with yards and yards of draping fabric, loud floral embroidery at the waist and a plunging neckline.

     
  • Niche, mainstream sellers carry kale into beauty Aug 23, 2014 6:15 AM
    Kale has crept out of salads and juicers into beauty products from niche and mainstream sellers. The leafy superfood that many love and others love to hate can now be had in face masks, skin-brightening serums, creams and nail polish, pushed along by the march to healthier living and the frenzy to fend off aging.

    Move over, studded bracelets and chandelier earrings. Right now, it’s all about nails. Rhinestones, 3-D designs, textured topcoats and new offerings from fashion royalty have upped the ante on fingertips, said Kahlana Barfield, beauty director for InStyle magazine. “We’re seeing so many nail artists emerging and nail art salons that are launching,” she said.

     
  • The fashion world looks back on Lauren Bacall Aug 14, 2014 11:00 AM
    Lauren Bacall had one condition when the Fashion Institute of Technology wrote recently to ask if it could turn hundreds of personal garments she donated into an exhibition about her style. “She said, ‘Yes, it’s fine, as long as it’s high-quality — Diana Vreeland style,’” recalled Valerie Steele, director of The Museum at FIT. 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.

     
  • How tattoos went from corporate to cool Aug 11, 2014 5:01 AM
    How far are consumers ready to go to show their love to brands? As the BBC recently noted, tattoos representing brands are getting more and more common. But why? And what does it tells us about the psychology of consumers and brand identities?

     
  • South Carolina woman makes clothes from castoffs Jul 29, 2014 6:00 AM
    For Jillian Owens, some of her passion for fashion was motivated by a desire for new garments without the creation of more waste. And, she says openly on her blog, “I was also quite broke and couldn’t afford new clothes.” Since 2010, Owens has been delving into thrift store racks around her Columbia, South Carolina, home, taking what some may see as outdated castoffs and whipping them into hip, trendy fashions. She says she’s made hundreds of creations, donating many to charity and at times opening up her closet to friends for their perusal.

     
  • Russell Westbrook: Basketballs and baskets of clothes Jul 23, 2014 6:09 AM
    Go shopping with powerhouse basketball player Russell Westbrook — whose colorful style has made headlines outside of sports — and you'll probably be surprised by his favorite section: the sale rack. The Oklahoma City Thunder star player says he's not going to buy the most expensive clothes just because he can afford it. “I may look at it, see how much it costs and then decide if I'm going to get it or not.”

    Surf’s up next summer. From rash guards to zipper-brief bottoms, sporty-chic looks made waves on the runway in Miami Beach for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, which celebrated its 10th year with more than a dozen shows ending Monday. The shows previewed summer 2015 swimwear. “Sport luxe is making a big impact into swimwear,” said Sue Di Chio, creative director of Suboo.

  • In search of natural hues? A garden ‘to dye for’ Jul 18, 2014 5:30 AM
    Homegrown botanical dyes are in, part of today’s shift toward more natural and organic living. And you don’t need a degree in chemistry to create your own hues for scarves, sweaters or even Easter eggs. All it takes is a garden plot or a few pots and a kitchen.

     
  • Cork. It’s not just for wine and bulletin boards Jul 15, 2014 5:45 AM
    Cork. It’s not just for wine stoppers and bulletin boards anymore.
