Deviate Is the Genderless Fashion Label Fostering a Community in Detroit

When it comes to major fashion capitals, you may think of New York, London, Milan, and Paris—but sisters Cassidy and Kelsey Tucker want to add Detroit to that list. With their genderless label, Deviate, the duo hope to foster a fashion community in their growing, native city. “The fashion industry in Detroit is really nascent and budding,” says Cassidy. “We’re a city that’s so overlooked, but there’s this crackling creative energy here. That narrative doesn’t really get shared with those living outside of the city.”

In many ways, Detroit is on the rebound. Despite suffering an economic downturn and filing

Until recently, you could count the number of notable disposals by LVMH on one hand: Christian Lacroix, Donna Karan, Michael Kors (in which it owned a 33 percent stake) and the Edun ethical fashion label founded with singer Bono were among the few projects the luxury giant had scrapped rather than hoarding them in its stable of 75 brands.

But since the pandemic, changes at the French luxury group’s portfolio of smaller labels have been coming at a clip. The group cut loose shoemaker Nicholas Kirkwood last fall, put its Fenty fashion startup with Rihanna on indefinite pause, and ceased

Halston Family Blasts Ryan Murphy’s Netflix Series About Late Fashion Icon | Entertainment

Ryan Murphy‘s upcoming Netflix series Halston has come under fire from the influential fashion designer’s family.

Ewan McGregor is set to portray the late fashion icon in the show, which debuts on the streamer Friday, May 14. However, Halston’s relatives claim they weren’t consulted about the series and have slammed it as “an inaccurate, fictionalized account” of the famed fashion designer.

From fashion and decor to jewelry, the French house reinvents its enduring emblems

Few luxury brands have as many instantly recognizable motifs as Chanel. The maison’s genius lies in constantly interpreting its symbols — founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s favorite flower, color pairings and more — across categories. Here’s a look at six of her original symbols and how they’re translated from fashion to glamorous jewelry, watches and a stunning boutique backdrop.

New York Fashion Week Will Be a Thing Again

In 2017, four prominent young American fashion brands decided that they would show their new collections on the runways of Paris.

These were largely business decisions and would mean little to the average customer.

For the next three years, that narrative persisted: New York Fashion Week was either dying or already dead. (Even after two of those departing brands, Proenza Schouler and Rodarte, came
