Opportunity knocks for unlikely quartet in Paris

After a wildly unpredictable women’s singles at the French Open, four Grand Slam semi-final debutants will line up on Thursday with a golden opportunity knocking.

Not since the 1978 Australian Open have a quartet of players reached the semis of a women’s Grand Slam for the first time.

Chris O’Neil, ranked 111 in the world, won the title on that occasion although it was a relatively weak field with few of the top players even bothering to play the event.

The same cannot be said this year and whoever out of Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Slovenia’s Tamara Zidansek, Czech Barbora Krejcikova

In the past year, Black-owned businesses have been granted the opportunity to share the spotlight with other mainstream corporations—rightfully given the praise they deserve. The circumstances of what it took to inject Black businesses into the market are unfortunate, but there have been a number of seasoned and new business owners that have benefited from the growing support. During this last year, our community united to uplift, encourage, and catapult our Black-owned businesses and designers to the forefront—demanding visibility, equity, and equality for their services and talents. Our voice was so strong it moved others, specifically non-BIPOC,

Health Care Workers Deserve Fashion, Too

One of the more unexpected side effects of the pandemic was to forever alter our relationships with personal protective equipment; to make medical garments, at least in the mask sense, a new accessory of self-expression and a part of almost every wardrobe. And every designer’s arsenal.

Now that relationship is entering a new phase. Josie Natori, a designer known for her loungewear and lingerie, is joining forces with Care+Wear, the “healthwear” company known for its fashion approach to PICC line covers and clothing with port access, to introduce a line of scrubs modeled on her best-selling pajamas.
