Revlon files for bankruptcy
Revlon filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this week, Bloomberg reports, citing global supply chain issues that exacerbated the cosmetic company's existing problems. "Consumer demand for our products remains strong — people love our brands, and we continue to have a healthy market position. But our challenging capital structure has limited our ability to navigate macro-economic issues in order to meet this demand," Revlon CEO Debra Perelman told the publication, in a statement. {Bloomberg}

"Through this partnership, HFR and LVMH North America look forward to continuing their mission of giving designers of color access to individuals and organizations that can help shape their future," said Brandice Daniel, CEO and founder of Harlem's Fashion Row, in a statement. "We've successfully introduced a wealth of diverse designers to a world-class fashion curriculum consisting of invaluable tools and resources to grow their businesses, and have educated Gen Z on how they too can change fashion's course. Conjunctively, we've created opportunities for youth to engage as early as high school, meeting the marginalized, particularly HBCU students, where they are in their fashion careers." {Fashionista Inbox}
