Can The Show Known For Fashion Help Boost Retail?

It may be soon be time to dust off the Manolo Blahniks—“Sex and the City” is on the not-too-distant fashion horizon.

On the heels of Sarah Jessica Parker’s (who plays the show’s designer shoe-obsessed main character Carrie Bradshaw) Instagram announcement confirming a new chapter of the HBO Max series, entitled “And Just Like That…”, thousands of followers of the fashion-centric TV series responded enthusiastically—including Reese Witherspoon, Debra Messing and Zoë Kravitz.

The question is whether the return of the “Sex and the

Olivia Rodrigo’s Stylist Laura Sophie Cox Interview

Only a few weeks into 2021, and it feels like we’re all just living in Olivia Rodrigo’s world. The 17-year-old High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actress kicked off the year with a breakup song titled “Drivers License” that’s dominating the charts and a moody music video to match. I’ve kept the track on repeat (and since it’s breaking records left and right, I’m sure I’m not alone), and I’m now deep into the Olivia fan club. So much so that I’m not only admiring her voice — I’m admiring her fashion, too.

Paul Smith on lockdown dressing: ‘Don’t laugh but I’ve still been wearing my suits’ | Fashion

This time last year Paul Smith celebrated his fiftieth anniversary with a bells and whistles fashion show in Paris. There was a greatest hits collection and Susan Sarandon and Jon Hamm front row. This year, things are a little different. Paris men’s fashion week is largely digital and Smith’s show on Friday afternoon was a behind-closed doors event with no audience.

In a year where the global fashion industry has faced its biggest ever racial reckoning Kamala Harris, the first black and south Asian vice-president, has elevated the names of black designers by wearing their clothes on the biggest public stage possible.

By wearing fashion labels Pyer Moss, Christopher John Rogers and Sergio Hudson during last week’s inauguration events, Harris was aligning the new administration’s commitment to diversity with the fashion industry’s attempt to move past systemic, historic racism into a new era. A new era where designers of color get the same opportunities that their white counterparts have had

‘We need to be in it’: fashion labels vie for a role in Sex and the City | Fashion industry

After a bruising 10 months of store closures, falling sales, cancelled red carpets and nixed shows, the fashion industry finally had something to smile about this week with the announcement of the return of Sex and the City.

“Everyone has been talking about it. People are saying: we need to be in it,” one PR at a major fashion brand told the Guardian, expressing the sentiments of an industry that greeted the news with the enthusiasm of Carrie Bradshaw at a Manolo Blahnik sample sale.

Though the overall response to the controversially Kim Cattrall-free sequel has been mixed, the

High fashion comes home – The Hindu

As more designers turn their focus to interiors, offering everything from prototype houses to sumptuous décor, here are some names to track

Last year, as our homes ‘grew’ — the four walls accommodating an office, a classroom, a gym, a restaurant, a spa, a playground and more, to fit our needs during the pandemic — so did our desire to showcase it in the best light possible. Clothing purchases took a back seat as people browsed table settings, bedlinen, furniture and cutlery, often on the very same fashion websites. Think Gucci’s eclectic ‘Souvenir from Rome’ range, Missoni’s ‘Modern Iconic’, or
