Zoey Deutch Continues to Wear Tiffany Blue in Corset Dress & Sparkling Sandals on ‘Live With Kelly & Ryan’

Zoey Deutch was spotted out for a stroll early this morning in New York, making her way to the “Live With Kelly and Ryan” studios. The actress is currently on a press tour for her new film, “Something From Tiffany’s.” Continuing with her Tiffany-blue theme — as first seen at the movie’s premiere last week, Deutch wore a bright light blue Oscar de la Renta dress with bedazzled heels for the occasion. The “Vampire Academy” actress’ dress was a simple a-line style with a fitted strappy scoop neck bodice that gave off the illusion of a corseted waistline thanks to the garment’s...

Why I’m Buying Back Appropriated Clothing as a Power Move

Earlier this fall, I was mindlessly scrolling—as I often do—through secondhand listings on Vestiaire Collective, The RealReal, eBay, and Grailed. On 2nd Street Vintage’s website, I spotted it: a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier top. In my size. For under $150. Was I dreaming?. My initial desire turned...

How Many Clothes Should We Own, Exactly?

“Buy less and buy better” has become a common refrain in fashion’s sustainability movement. But how much should we actually be buying? If a new report is anything to go by, it’s likely a lot less than you think. Researchers from Berlin’s Hot Or Cool Institute found that we should only be purchasing five new garments a year in order to stay in line with the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees celsius, if nothing else changes. That would mean shoppers in the U.K. alone would need to reduce their consumption by up to 80 percent in some cases.

The metaverse fashion stylists are here

When I met Jenni Svoboda, she was in the midst of designing a beanie with a melted cupcake top, sprinkles, and doughnuts for ears. “It’s something you’d probably never wear in real life,” she said with a laugh. But Svoboda isn’t designing for the physical world. She’s designing for the metaverse. Svoboda is working in a burgeoning, if bizarre, new niche: fashion stylists who create or curate outfits for people in virtual spaces.

These Two Latina Entrepreneurs Are Making Fashion More Sustainable

Want clothing that’s trendy and affordable? It’s going to cost the environment. According to Earth.org, fast fashion — which is the process of creating cheap, quickly made clothing based on trends and celebrity culture — is responsible for nearly 10% of global carbon emissions. Even worse, these fibers take a long time to decay in landfills and contribute to the estimated 92 million tons of textile waste that’s produced annually.

How representation politics mask fashion’s unethical underbelly

Self-indulgence in the form of consumerism defines the festive season. Accounting for around 2-3% of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP), the apparel and footwear industries are central to late capitalist values of flamboyant acquisition and display. However, the growing mood of eco-anxiety – underpinned by COP27’s focus on how exactly we’ll be financing global climate action – is changing the way we consume and engage with fashion.

Depressing! Shein named the most popular fashion brand of 2022

Shein has been named as 2022’s most popular fashion brand. The company, formed in Nanjing in 2008, was named as the most Googled clothing brand in 113 countries, overtaking Zara and finding itself ahead of other clothing giants such as Nike and adidas by quite some margin. Only a matter of hours after that news broke, Shein also admitted working hour breaches where some employees were working 75 hour weeks and only taking two-to-three days off a month. The news unravelled as a succession of events which perfectly sums up the majority of fast fashion: low prices, high human cost. So that’s great!
