Laura Brown shares her game plan for updating InStyle
InStyle's newly appointed editor in chief sat down with Business of Fashion to discuss her upcoming changes to InStyle, which will include more long-form designer profiles; the book will also shift away from product-heavy coverage to add more "It" girls and influencers. "For me, as an outsider, I looked at the name: 'In' and 'Style,'" she explained in the interview. "It has the two most powerful words in fashion. To know that if you are on the cover, if you buy an ad, if you attend one of our parties, if you're in a story, if you made a shoe that we're featuring, you're in style." {Business of Fashion}

"I still think fashion has a long way to go,"
Even for all her achievements over her decades-long career, it turns out Karen Elson isn't immune to the strict standards of today's fashion industry. "I was in New York Fashion Week and I got canceled from a fashion show. It was something to do with body stuff," Elson said in a new interview with WWD. "I had a real moment of truth. I was like, you know what, I'm too old for this. It's not about me. That's their attitude, not mine." {WWD}

Have Fifth Avenue rents already peaked?
At $4,000 per square foot, the ritzy stretch of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 58th Streets has long been the world's most expensive retail location — but that could possibly be seeing a decrease in the not-so-distant future. "Right now, we're seeing a bit of a slowdown in demand, which is impacting pricing," Andrew S. Goldberg, a vice chairman of retail services in CBRE's New York City office, said to WWD. "There's a lot more supply than there is demand." {WWD}
