Plus, Levi's designs a special collection to benefit the Harvey Milk Foundation.

These are the stories making headlines in fashion this Tuesday.

Phoebe Philo is not leaving Céline
An internal memo to Céline employees stated that the French label and Phoebe Philo "are more motivated and committed than ever to their partnership and will continue to create beautiful products." The memo also lamented the "poor journalism" that added fuel to the rumors. Last week, The Fashion Law suggested that Philo and members of her team would be leaving for Alaïa. {WWD}

Paul Smith streamlines business
Paul Smith is collapsing a multitude of lines into only two, Paul Smith and PS by Paul Smith, and each will feature both menswear and womenswear in four deliveries annually. "There must be so many brands out there that are just locked into this formula that they can't get out of and I just said, 'We're stopping that. We're not doing that anymore,'" said the designer. The restructuring will not affect the designer's business in Japan, however. {Business of Fashion}
