TikToker slams man telling women to dress modestly at beach

A woman says she was harassed by a man on a Florida beach after he stood in front of her holding a sign about modesty while she was wearing a bathing suit.

TikTok user @.katie.simmons, who goes by Katie on the app, questioned the sign which read, “God says Christian women dress modest” — in a now-popular TikTok with almost 660,000 views.

“Sir, it’s a beach,” Katie can be heard saying in the clip. “Are we supposed to dress modest at a beach?”

“God doesn’t want women —” the man begins before Katie interrupts.

In the past, TikTokers used

More often than not, the Olympics opening ceremony is tacky but overwhelmingly bland; an oxymoron, if you will. The ceremony doesn’t always reflect the grace and pure talent that come with being an Olympian—but Telfar Clemens’ “collection” of Liberian Olympic uniforms checks all of the boxes.

The debut of the Olympics “double[d] as a runway show for Telfar.” While the brand has had many drops and collaborations since the pandemic began, this is the first time the designer has presented a show since before 2020. Liberia only has three athletes competing this year,

A decade on from college, after working first at PUMA HQ in Germany, and now as Global design lead for Sportstyle footwear, based in Tokyo, it’s fair to say that the launch of the PUMA Wild Rider has come as a natural progression, too.

Are we inching closer to fashion without gender?

While adoption of genderless styles isn’t widespread among brands, the role of gender in fashion is being discussed more than ever.

Earlier this summer, 19-year-old Kendra Scott launched her first-ever men’s collection, in response to customer demand heard through communication with in-store teams, especially in-store stylists, and through the brand’s social media. 

“Our customers have been telling us for years that they’re interested in seeing more masculine designs from our brand,” said Scott. “Men already shop in our stores for the women in their life — they make up 38% of our customers. So it’s a natural extension.”

The truth about fast fashion: can you tell how ethical your clothing is by its price? | Fashion

What is the true cost of a Zara hoodie? In April 2019, David Hachfeld of the Swiss NGO Public Eye, along with a team of researchers and the Clean Clothes Campaign, attempted to find out. They chose to analyse a black, oversized top from Zara’s flagship Join Life sustainability line, which was printed with lyrics made famous by Aretha Franklin: “R-E-S-P-E-C-T: find out what it means to me”. It was an apt choice, because the idea was to work out whether any respect had been paid to the workers involved in the garment’s production, and how much of

AZ Factory Will Cap Off Paris Fashion Week With a Show Celebrating Alber Elbaz

When Alber Elbaz died in April, fashion lost not only one of its most celebrated designers but one of its best cheerleaders. Elbaz was a glue between designers, retailers, and fans, often appearing in the front rows of other brands’ shows and offering words of wisdom to anyone who crossed his path. His runway shows, too, were some of fashion’s most fun, with good music, snacks, and revelry replacing the froideur that can permeate other events. At Paris Fashion Week this September, Elbaz’s label AZ Factory will commemorate his spirit with a runway show in his honor called “Love Brings
