As anyone who has tried to become a fashion designer will tell you, the years you spend building your brand can be hard. There's so many decisions to make--do you want to branch out on your own right away or spend a few years working for an established name? Do you want to be conceptual or commercial? And of course, where are you going to get the money? So what's a brand new designer to do? Get advice from our "How I'm Making It" panel at our first-ever conference. We're gathering together some of the coolest new designers in the business to tell us, well, how they're making it. Who's on deck?
Tired of the endless stream of extravagant gowns at Cannes? Yeah, neither are we. But, we felt bad for the step-and-repeating celebs who don't happen to be in the south of France right now.

Fashionista is excited to host its first ever day-long event, How to Make It in Fashion. This isn't just another conference where you leave with a goodie bag and nothing else. (Although there will be a great one.) Along with tips on networking, alternative career paths, and plain old inspiring success stories, you'll have a chance to actually talk one-on-one with many of our speakers (including Zac Posen, the Man Repeller's Leandra Medine, Rebecca Minkoff and more) as well as Fashionista editors about how to kick-start your career or take it to the next level. You'll get real, take-home advice, make connections, and who knows? Maybe you'll take the first step towards your dream job. All the deets and how to sign up, right this way.

First, Chris Benz announced that he'd be sitting out the Fall 2013 shows. Soon after, Peter Som decided to forgo the traditional runway for one of KCD's nifty digital fashion shows, following in the footsteps of See by Chloe and Pierre Balmain, amongst others. Then last week's Wall Street Journal article about designers forgoing New York Fashion Week hit the real nerve, highlighting several up-and-coming (as well as established) labels choosing not to stage runway shows or presentations.

Compared to, say, the 1950s, very little clothing (or anything for that matter) is manufactured in the United States. There are a few heritage brands
A little birdie told us there will be some girly outfit coordination going on at this year's Costume Institute Gala, which is less than two weeks away. The Vogue-hosted event will celebrate the opening of "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" at the Met and we hear the hostesses--namely, Vogue editors, will be paying a little tribute to one of the exhibition's subjects by following a strict dress code: they all have to wear pink.
Halloween weekend is finally upon us! We've had Halloween costumes on the brain all week and we're not the only ones. We decided to ask some of our favorite designers what they were planning on dressing up as because we figured that, as fashion designers, they'd have some pretty creative ideas. And we were right.
