Over the weekend, Cora Harrington announced that her beloved site, The Lingerie Addict, would be closing at the end of the month. In the New York Times, Danya Issawi spoke to Harrington about the decision to bring the 14-year-old blog to an end and what may come next. "I don't want to leave The Lingerie Addict behind," she said. "The question is, 'How do I move forward so that The Lingerie Addict is a part of my life and not all?'

"When you think about … in retail and fashion, in terms of the consumers and the community that these companies are serving, you want to be reflective of those communities. There's a real business case around why fashion needs to be diversified at all levels." {Business of Fashion}
