In the male world of whiskey, more women are calling the shots | Lifestyle

In 2018, the three founders of Milam & Greene, a distillery in Blanco, Texas, made their first trip to the San Antonio Cocktail Conference, one of the state’s largest gatherings of bartenders, distillers and their legions of fans. They were excited to introduce their new whiskey, until they found their assigned table — stuck in a corner, far from the action.

The cold shoulder might have come because they were new to the scene, or because a portion of their whiskey was made outside Texas. But it didn’t help that all three of them — Marsha Milam, entrepreneur; Heather Greene,

Pyer Moss adds commentary on black erasure to Paris couture week | Fashion

Six months after designing the “new wave” coat Kamala Harris wore during inauguration week, Pyer Moss made history again on Saturday when creative director Kerby Jean-Raymond became the first black designer to show at Paris couture week.

On Wednesday, Balenciaga showed its first haute couture show since 1967, when founder Cristóbal Balenciaga left the fashion industry for good. The house’s current artistic director, Demna Gvesalia, is known for shaking things up, but he made an enormous effort to pay homage to both the craft and the atmosphere of couture week, which has historically been much quieter and more intimate than Paris Fashion Week in the spring and fall.

The room where the show took place, for example, was an almost exact replica of Balenciaga’s original salon at 10 Avenue George V in Paris,
