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.

Recent attempts in fashion include the collection of apps that attempted to triangulate body type or measurements to better show how the clothes of online shopping will fit. The technology has faltered because there…

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.

Don’t worry, if this was a garment-neglect anonymous meeting, I’d be the first to stand and introduce myself as the most uninterested, negligent handler of clothes (fashionable or otherwise) in the room – or at least I…

Fast fashion slips into high gear

Despite being under 15 years old, fast fashion ranks second in the worldwide production of pollution, behind only big oil. It isn’t slowing down any time soon — H&M opened 240 new stores in the fall of 2015 alone, the equivalent to three stores per day. But the havoc the industry is wreaking on the environment and the world is beginning to show through. In 2016, while fast fashion will keep growing, it will also face growing resistance.

Why Japan Is So Important to American Fashion

Fujiwara's grey hair is a moppy bob and he's wearing what I can only assume are hard-to-find Nikes. My cousin asks why he showed up in sneakers, but what she really means is, "How dare you show up to a formal family event in casualwear?"

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…

7 'Zoolander 2' Trailer Moments That Nail Fashion Industry Stereotypes

When it first came out nearly fifteen years ago, the movie Zoolander, a seemingly irreverent comedy, perfectly satirized the fashion industry — a world that quite notoriously takes itself very seriously. The long overdue sequel is mere months away from its debut, and by the really, really ridiculously good-looking Zoolander 2 trailer, the second iteration promises to be serve up plenty more of the same too-real insight into the fashion biz, along with a healthy dose of Blue Steel.

Trying to call truce with stepmom for brother’s wedding

Dear Carolyn: My stepmother has been in my life for 20-plus years, since I was a high school junior. She and I have never gotten along well and have had some really terrible fights. I love my dad, but he’s exceedingly conflict-avoidant and says only, “I don’t want to take sides.” So we realized many years ago that we cannot really be around each other much, and I see my dad solo only.

My brother is getting married in a few weeks. My stepmother contacted me to ask whether we could…

Yes, I'm Cuban. No, I Don't Plan on Going Immediately

My father is a quiet man, but every now and again he finds a way to surprise me with an unexpected quip or the occasional blunt reality check. His means of communication are very much rooted in his Cuban nationality: wavering between thoughtful and tempered and hilariously inappropriate and candid. He fled Artemisa, a city formerly of the La Habana Province, for Miami in the early 1960s, just as Fidel Castro's communist regime began to really dig its claws into the nation. When I recently…

Edmond Gets The Tim Gunn Save For Fashion Week

Fans TOTALLY FREAKED OUT when Edmond went home at the end of last week’s show, andRIGHT BEFORE fashion week. Not only has Edmond been one of the strongest, most consistentand beyond talented designers all season, but he also has auditioned for the show ever since the first season — if that doesn’t show dedication I don’t know what does. I feel like this season everyone thinks Tim Gunn is being a little too tough, so I think fans were definitely relieved when he swooped in, in the twelveth…
