Inside the first-ever Vegan Fashion Week
Los Angeles hosted the first Vegan Fashion Week last weekend, where 54 companies came to show their animal-product-free collections. Hundreds of conscientious consumers, designers, animal rights activists and vegan lifestyle advocates attended the event, eager to see wool-free tweeds and sustainably sourced pineapple leaf leather alternatives in action. The three-day gathering was also filled with discussions on experimenting with mushroom-root leather and a lab-grown biofabricated collagen cell leather. {The New York Times

A comparison of Rihanna and Kylie Jenner's beauty empires 
If you only look at the numbers, Rihanna's Fenty Beauty is a step ahead of Kylie Cosmetics: Fenty Beauty's 2018 sales alone surpass the $420 million Kylie Cosmetics generated in its first 18 months. What's more, Fenty Beauty launched exclusively at Sephora and has benefitted from the beauty retailer's global reach, while Kylie Cosmetics had to rely on direct sales until some of its lip products launched in Ulta last November. But even though Rihanna's sales may be better, Jenner is probably getting richer from her beauty line, because she owns 100 percent of it. Rihanna's stake in Fenty Beauty hasn't been publicly disclosed, but we know LVMH has a sizeable share. {Business of Fashion
