The disruption fashion needs is one that will cure the most depressing reality of the business

Disruption is a term lobbed around in business now more often than fashion declares something “the new black.” And the brow of a fresh new year is the time to guess which disruptive spaghetti will stick to the ceiling and which will peel off and join the Bitcoin graveyard.

4 garment qualities that are changing fashion

It’s not often that one considers or nurtures their clothes in an effort prolong their closet-life. In fact, many of us are guilty of dumping their garments in the washing machine or handing them over to be hand washed without so much as reading the care instructions.

Right now, Fujiwara is serenading my sister and her now-husband as they have their first dance as a married couple. I'm impressed, and not just because he has shlepped a guitar from Japan to Kansas City — though to be fair, the groom is American…
