The Met’s Costume Institute Aims to Start a Conversation About More Than American Fashion
By

Instead of ushering in hundreds of media types, influencers and fashion-centric guests to preview its latest exhibition at The Costume Institute, as in years past, the Metropolitan Museum of Art welcomed fans virtually Monday morning to get a preview of its upcoming show.

Instead of simply a look at elaborate or immaculately tailored clothes, the show is meant to generate a discussion about many issues being debated worldwide — social equity, diversity, sustainability and more. The two-part yearlong show is an attempt to reclaim the past year in light of the pandemic.

The Met’s director Max Hollein, Instagram’s vice president of fashion and shopping Eva Chen and The Costume Institute’s curator in charge Andrew Bolton helped with the run-through, hinting at the multimedia aspect of the doubleheader show. In what will be a yearlong endeavor, The Met will unveil “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” at the Anna Wintour

Concepts About Fashion

Furthermore, the Bangladeshi government created a $588 million coronavirus stimulus package geared toward serving to garment staff maintain wages up as the consequences of COVID-19 in the fashion business continue. While a promising start, there is still much room to improve as the stimulus package deal didn’t sufficiently alleviate the continuing crisis. Additionally, regardless of large-scale layoffs in the wake of COVID-19 within the fashion trade, more than ninety seven% of fashion corporations have offered no financial assistance to cover the costs of furlough and severance to their factories. Although COVID-19 within the fashion business has severely impacted garment-producing countries immediately, poverty and starvation for displaced staff have served to be more of a menace than the disease itself. With cutthroat practices leaving a security internet for neither factories nor employees, the availability chain essentially collapsed because the pandemic spread across the world. In the age of globalization, the vast … Read More

Younger shoppers are driving a surge in sales of secondhand clothing and furnishings, spurred by the desire to help the environment and find alternative looks to fast fashion.

On eBay, sales of “pre-loved” fashion and homewares have shot up in the UK over the past year, with the company selling more than 60 million used items. Murray Lambell, general manager of eBay’s UK business, said: “There is definitely a change in mindset, driven by younger consumers up to the age of 30.”

While fashion-conscious teens have been trading previously owned fashion on sites such as Depop and Vinted for several years, older groups are likely to be persuaded by secondhand bargains moving out of traditional charity shops and into mid-market mainstream store chains. Asda announced last week that it is testing out secondhand

PARIS (AP) — Israeli designer Alber Elbaz, best known for spending 14 years at the helm of France’s Lanvin fashion house, has died at 59, the luxury conglomerate Richemont said Sunday.

A spokesperson for Richemont told CNN that Elbaz died Saturday from COVID-19. Women’s Wear Daily said he died at a Paris hospital.

In a statement, Richemont chairman Johann Rupert said “it was with shock and enormous sadness that I heard of Alber’s sudden passing. Alber had a richly deserved reputation as one of the industry’s brightest and most beloved figures.

“I was always taken by his intelligence, sensitivity, generosity and unbridled creativity. He was a man of exceptional warmth and talent, and his singular vision, sense of beauty and empathy leave an indelible impression,” Rupert said.

The Richemont group paid tribute to Elbaz’s “inclusive vision of fashion” that “made women feel beautiful and comfortable by blending traditional craftsmanship with

Finally, we have a reason to get dressed up. After months of staying in, swaddled in old T-shirts and tracksuit bottoms, there’s an excuse to wear something else. Something that will be seen by people outside your household and those who don’t frequent your local supermarket, post office, or pharmacy. And so as lockdown restrictions continue easing across the UK, it makes sense that many of us want to have fun with fashion again. Forget comfort, the sartorial mood du jour is joy. Enter co-ords, the centuries-old trend that’s making a comeback this season.

For the uninitiated, a co-ord (an abbreviation of co-ordinates) is the nickname given to a matching two-piece outfit, with both parts usually made from the same fabric, colour, or pattern, or all three. I know what you’re thinking. And yes, suits are technically co-ords, as are matching pyjamas, and, well, bikinis. But in recent

The best way to find out what fashion will look like in the future? Going straight to the source and asking the fashion set which pieces have landed on their shopping lists.
