How to Become a Fashion Designer | Best Colleges

The greatest thrill of being a fashion designer, many of them say, has nothing to do with dressing up supermodels for glamorous events and watching them walk down runways wearing the clothing you designed – though that is a plus and a sign of success. What makes the job truly exciting, several designers say, is watching an everyday person smile when they put on an outfit you created that makes them feel confident.


“As far as the most gratifying thing, it’s hearing and seeing people’s reactions to the clothes and hearing them say, ‘I feel comfortable,'” says

Can Stella McCartney Clean Up Fashion? | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

“We are literally getting away with murder,” Stella McCartney said through her computer screen. A week earlier, she’d delivered this message to a group of the world’s most powerful leaders at the G7 summit in Cornwall, England.

The designer’s pitch was simple: government regulators and policy-makers need to stop giving fashion a pass. Instead, they should treat it like the automotive sector or any other big, heavily polluting industry, with tougher oversight and stronger incentives to reduce environmental impact.

“There needs to be policies set in place to police our industry,” McCartney said. “Certainly the industry has fallen short …

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,

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
