The video uncovers that the fashion industry still lacks true diversity. Designers and casting agents still believe that black women won't sell magazines, products or clothing.
From casting calls where black models are told not to even bother to the horrendous scrutinization of their slightly ... Read More

Prices range from $8 for the socks to $70 for the hi-top sneakers with the allover print. According to Claw herself, the instructions for ... Read More

It never fails to amaze me how every pair of shoes I own manage to hurt my feet, each leaving their own unique wound by the end of the day.
Yet, it turns out that bad footwear choices and shoddy shoemaking may not be entirely to blame.
Research shows that changes in estrogen levels change the height and flexibility ... Read More

We just love, love 13 year old fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson, and after watching this video of her introducing the Rodarte sister's line for Target, you'll probably agree that she is the most adorable person on earth.

The article was spurred after Cambridge undergrads stripped down to their skivvies for a student magazine, ... Read More
It's no secret that Project Runway hasn't been good for a while -- the designers are boring, there's zero drama since they kicked off Johnny Meth Addict, and snarky fashion cops Nina and Michael are usually MIA. But perhaps most importantly, the outfits themselves are a big yawn -- have you seen any winning designs recently that you couldn't go buy at your local Banana Republic? So if you're going through kickass fashion withdrawal like myself, check out this ... Read More
