With chic citizens and stunning innovation to spare, New York has clearly proven itself as a fashion capital. But is the city living up to its ambitious title?
Although New York’s fashion scene thrives in aesthetic value and skill, the way the industry treats its own is coming into serious question – although, thankfully, improvements seem to be underway!
Sara Ziff, former child model and founder of Model Alliance, reports that the labor ... Read More
If I'm going to be completely honest this is the first I've heard about Lady Gaga for months, but let's forget about that for a minute.
Recently Gaga went to Mexico for a high school friend's wedding and as it turns out, she looks totally subdued as a bridesmaid. Just wavy blonde hair and a soft peach dress. There was nary an absurd colored wig or shawl constructed of slaughtered Kermits. Thank goodness.I'm proud of her for taking this route. Though I gave my ... Read More
I didn’t know that I needed a bejeweled pineapple turban until now. Or, better yet, a minature coconut tree hat. Luckily, Tami Bar-Lev has provided the world with both, along with many other surreal and headpieces. You haven't seen high fashion until you've seen a sparkly fish wrapped in newspaper and draped over someone's eye. And if you're a bride-to-be sick of veils and tradition, she does wedding fascinators, too! Yay!
There’s a fine line between ... Read More

All of a sudden, summer is upon us. That means sweaty days and muggy nights - NYC, just like most of the country, turns into a total armpit during the summer. When all you want to do is hide out in front of the AC, slip on one of these stunners, get outside, and live it up!

Well this is awesome - two students from Cornell University have created a mannequin modeled after real plus sized bodies, building the most accurate curvy shape the fashion industry has ever used.
That sounds a little strange (why would an accurate plus-size mannequin be revolutionary?) but until now, most mannequins for larger clothes were made by just magnifying the general proportions of smaller mannequins. That means the proportions of plus-sized mannequins ... Read More

We still haven't gotten over the horrendous comments and actions of fat-hate coming from Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries. Luckily we can always count on Ellen to poke fun at such insanely ridiculous situations like these, and that's just what she did on her show last Friday. She has one thing to say to Abercrombie: "Fitch, please!" Not only is this clip hilarious, DeGeneres ends with a truly inspiring anti-fat-hate message about true beauty. She extends ... Read More

Created to showcase her circle skirt line, this lookbook is perfectly summer-ready and the skirts are so cute, ... Read More
