Campbell, director and CEO of the museum. "It is a wonderful way to discover the magic behind the making of fashion." {Fashionista inbox}

How digital software is reshaping the fashion industry behind-the-scenes
While consumer-targeted outlets for e-commerce and social media are constantly innovating, the production side of fashion has made significantly less progress in recent years; some wholesale deals are still being fulfilled with pen-and-paper. "Technology in general creates really serious demands on time, from managing data flows and storage to [sharpening] accuracy and flexibility," said Ronen Lazar, co-founder and chief executive of Inturn, a company that allows brands and retailers to globally buy and sell excess inventory. "Everyone has been putting it off to the side." {Business of Fashion}

The current state of New York Fashion Week: Men's
After a whirlwind season of international men's fashion weeks in London, Florence, Milan and Paris, New York City will get its turn beginning this Monday. But with several statement-making shows taking place across the pond (including Rick Owens and Hood by Air, two American brands which both showed in Paris), can we still expect the same from the roster of 64 designers showing at Clarkson Square next week? {The New York Times}
