TikTok fashion trend inspired by ‘Bridgerton’ brings historical subcultures to mainstream

Netflix’s hit series “Bridgerton” has inspired TikTok fashionistas.

The fictional period drama produced by award-winning screenwriter Shonda Rhymes and her new production company Shondaland, has been a top-streaming show since its Christmas Day debut. And now the series has given life to a fashion subculture known as “regencycore.”

Written by Leah Dolan, CNN

Rihanna’s clothing line, “Fenty Fashion House,” is being suspended indefinitely, luxury conglomerate LVMH announced today.

The label was launched less than two years ago with the French company, which is home to high-end fashion houses Louis Vuitton and Dior, among others.

New York Fashion Week has changed. Here’s why

Written by Fiona Sinclair Scott, CNN

When the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) chairman Tom Ford announced earlier this year that the organization would no longer publish an official New York Fashion Week schedule but rather an “American Collections Calendar,” the news confirmed something bigger than an administrative update.

New York Fashion Week was once the main stage for American designers, but this notion has been unbuckling for years as a number of designers have chosen to show elsewhere or outside of the official calendar dates.

The coronavirus pandemic only accentuated this trend. Travel bans and other logistical

The zero waste fashion designer taking over TikTok

Fast fashion is a spiralling problem for European consumers. In 2019, the UN reported that the fashion industry is responsible for 8-10 per cent of global carbon emissions.

Not only does the production of textiles require a lot of water and produce a lot of CO2, but many of these products end up going to landfill or being incinerated, instead of actually being worn.

Wasted clothing is where the damage of fast fashion is felt the most. In Europe, UK consumers buy the most items out of all other European markets, with each person purchasing an estimated 26.7kg of clothing

How blockchain could make fashion more sustainable

TextileGenesis believes the technology that underpins cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin can help. The company, based in Hong Kong and India, wants to make the fashion industry more transparent by using blockchain to digitize the supply chain, helping brands track clothes production from the raw materials to the finished article.

Sourcing sustainable materials is becoming a top priority for fashion companies, according to a 2019 report by consulting firm McKinsey & Company. Brands surveyed for the report said they also wanted to create transparency in their supply chains, but McKinsey noted few companies had yet achieved that.

Modest fashion struts the catwalk | Lifestyle | DW

It’s only been a few years since conservative Saudi Arabia has started hosting fashion events. At first it was a political signal, because until recently women had little opportunity to use fashion as a form of public expression. The accepted norm was the abaya, a black floor-length cloak, covering their clothes.

Recently, the conservative Islamic kingdom has introduced long-awaited advances in terms of equality. Women have recently been allowed to drive their own cars. The football stadium is no longer taboo for women. And in the future, women are to be allowed to set up companies without the permission of
