There’s a scene from 13 Going on 30 I keep harkening back to this fashion week: Jennifer Garner’s character, Jenna (a gawky seventh-grader who gets transported 17 years down the road to her future life—and body—as a fashion editor), presents photo boards with smiling women of all ages, shapes, and colors to a room of […]

Prada began to tease its spring 2017 show on Instagram as early as two days ago—but these sneak previews weren’t of design sketches, mood boards, zoomed-in detail shots, or anything we’re used to seeing before a collection debut. They were of short black-and-white clips captioned with the announcement of a “special multi-screen installation by director David O. […]

Tuesday at New York Fashion Week saw glam rockers from Rodarte, a Vera Wang version of minimalism, a garden party at Coach, a say-it-with-flowers collection from Peter Copping at Oscar de la Renta, and another satisfyingly rich show from Narciso Rodriguez, among many other highlights.

As Paris Fashion Week enters the final stretch, let us take a moment to acknowledge the hard work of so many models. This has felt like an exceptionally long season, and perhaps that’s because the runways have been so long, too. I mean, really long. That was certainly the most remarkable thing about the runway […]

While the rest of the industry wrestles with the big question of whether to show collections months in advance to the press (at the risk of boring their customers) or showing them when the clothes are ready to buy (at the risk of alienating the press), for Tommy Hilfiger, the choice was a no-brainer.

There’s something so immensely enjoyable about a one-of-a-kind couture creation that exists, not as something that’s functional or practical by any means, but as a subject of beauty. The number of shows during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week may be small, but its line-up is guaranteed to be packed with beyond extraordinary designs that have the power […]
