Edie Campbell pens an open letter to the fashion industry 
"We have a problem: We operate within a culture that is too accepting of abuse, in all of its manifestations. This can be the ritual humiliation of models, belittling of assistants, power plays and screaming fits. We have come to see this as simply a part of the job," writes Edie Campbell in an essay for WWD. In this open letter, the British model criticizes the media for not speaking out about abuse in the fashion industry and sheds light on male models who've also fallen victim to inappropriate workplace practices. {WWD}

Cara Delevingne stars in Jimmy Choo's disco-themed Cruise 2018 campaign 
As of late, glitter and sequins have ruled both the runway and the red carpet. And clearly, British-based footwear label Jimmy Choo is on-board with the whole sparkly trend: It invited Cara Delevingne to play a disco girl in its party-themed Cruise 2018 campaign. In the editorial and accompanying film, the model struts the streets in mini sequined dresses paired with bedazzled booties, metallic pumps and strappy sandals. {WWD}

Bolstered by both double-digit growth in North America and China, BoF said Adidas's net income from continuing operations for the full year is set to advance by as much as 28 percent. {Business of Fashion}
