Rihanna and LVMH shut down Fenty Fashion House

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.
In a statement to CNN Style, LVMH said the pause was a joint decision with Rihanna “pending better conditions,” and LVMH will continue to support other elements of the Fenty empire, concentrating on “the growth and long-term development” of her beauty and skincare lines Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin, as well as lingerie

An audiologist and a fashion designer with hearing loss have teamed up to create a jewelry line specifically for people who want to add a little sparkle to their hearing aids and cochlear implants.

Deafmetal, which launched in the U.S. earlier in the week, began with an innovation by Finnish fashion designer Jenni Ahtiainen. After losing her hearing in 2018, Ahtiainen was challenged with finding a way to make the hearing aids she now requires more

At New York Fashion Week, Footwear Hangs On

The state of fashion may seem a bit dreary these days, but New York Fashion Week launched its mostly-virtual showings with a somewhat surprising — and much needed — spring in its step, almost quite literally.

Of the first handful of brands to show during the week (which officially runs from February 18, though many of the usual names are showing beyond the calendar), many — including Ulla Johnson and Zero + Maria Cornejo — offered a kind of wardrobe that suggested an easing back into public life come fall.

Women’s heart disease symptoms different than those in men

LUMBERTON — Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for both women and men.

Learning to recognize symptoms early is of great importance, but it may be challenging for women because their symptoms are different than those in men.

The classical presentation of a heart attack is central chest discomfort lasting a few minutes intermittently. Patients of both genders usually describe crushing, squeezing pain or fullness sensation. However, for women, chest pain may not be as intense or it may not be the most bothersome symptom. Frequently, women complain of pain down the arms, jaw,

Does America Need A Fashion Czar?

The article’s title is: “President Biden, appoint a fashion czar!”

It was not entirely clear from the context of

Wealthy folks are buying jewelry from home during COVID

In pandemic times, if you can’t go to the bling, the bling will come to you.

Some of New York City’s high-end jewelers say they’ve had record sales over the past 11 months, all because they’re making house calls.

“Our sales are up 300 percent since the pandemic started,” Michel Piranesi, a jeweler who’s worked with Lionel Richie, Jackie Collins and socialites galore, told The Post.

Over the past several months, he’s been summoned — traveling on his own dime, negative COVID test in tow — by customers from Manhattan to Atlanta, Southampton and Palm Beach, Florida, where he sold

America’s Original Gangster Couple, Trailblazing Women Explorers and Other New Books to Read | History

At the height of the Roaring Twenties, the Whittemore Gang targeted banks and jewelry stores across the East Coast, stealing upward of $1 million in diamonds and precious gems (around $15 million today). Led by young couple Richard and Margaret Whittemore, known respectively as “the Candy Kid” and “Tiger Girl,” the group’s lavish lifestyle and violent escapades captured Americans’ attention much like the exploits of Bonnie and Clyde would less than a decade later.

In March 1926, after a year-long crime spree that left at least six dead, authorities finally caught up to the Whittemore Gang. As the New York

New York fashion week 2021 eclipsed by Chinese new year | Fashion

New York’s big week kicks off on 14 February, two days after the start of the Year of the Ox, putting it head-to-head with Chinese new year celebrations.

What’s more, the clash comes at a moment of weakness for Manhattan’s fashion industry. Few designers in any of the fashion capitals hold out much hope of showing new collections in front of an audience in the coming weeks, and every fashion week is struggling to maintain visibility while fighting for digital bandwidth.

But while Milan, Paris and London still have household names flying the flag for their virtual fashion weeks, New
