In order to connect with millennial fans of Carolina Herrera, the luxury, ultra-feminine brand is giving Snapchat users the first look at its resort collection. Actress Keirnan Shipka posed for the images photographed by Kristian Schuller, which are accessible on Hearst's Sweet Discover platform. "It’s a way for us to reach new demographics — a broader demographic," said CEO Francois Kress. “[The project] doesn’t have a commercial ambition, per se, but is instead a branding exercise that shows the best of the brands we cover to a very large audience.” {Business of Fashion}

Supermodel Pat Cleveland recounts her storied career in new memoir
Pat Cleveland is one of the most legendary model muses of our time. In her new memoir entitled "Walking with the Muses,' Pat Cleveland remembers the countless catwalks, designers and photographers of her legendary career. Discovered in Harlem at age 14, she also broke racial barriers as a black model, rising to prominence even though many refused to work with her at first. "Whether she was being zany, goofy Pat or ethereal, ephemeral, gossamer-as-the-wings-of-a-butterfly Pat, what she did was natural to her," says Andre Leon Talley. {The New York Times}

Opening Ceremony launches Pride collection celebrating historic LGBTQ venues
On Wednesday, Opening Ceremony launched a collection of T-shirts, sweatshirts and caps emblazoned with the logos of five bars and clubs that have played a part in New York's LGBTQ history: Stonewall Inn, The Eagle, Monster, Meow Mix and Cattyshack. "It's been frustrating to see spots that we love close down, so we've chosen to pay homage to places that are still going strong like The Eagle and Monster that we support and also those that we wish still existed," said co-founder Humberto Leon. The pieces are available online and in Opening Ceremony stores and 100 percent of the profits will benefit the Pulse Victims Fund. {Fashionista Inbox}
