Designers like Isabel Marant and Phillip Lim are recycling their own designs for the mass market--don't we all deserve something original?
The Fashion Group International's 30th annual Night of Stars gala happened last night in New York and, well... it was exactly what is says on the tin. Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Alexa Chung, Sofia Coppola to Kate Upton, and even Aretha Franklin put on the glitz for the event--though some clearly found a bit more sartorial success than others.
They may be students, but that didn’t stop the design students of the School of Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) from using their chance at Fashion W
For the past six seasons, Tumblr--the preferred blogging platform of fashion--has, in some way, shape or form, been involved with New York Fashion Week. After hitting a bump a few seasons ago, they're revamping their whole approach for the upcoming shows.
Last night New York City comptroller candidate Scott Stringer hosted a fundraiser at the Maritime Hotel in Chelsea. The world "comptroller" alone sounds utterly and terminally unhip--and Stringer, himself, middle-aged white guy politician and wearer of practical suits, doesn't exactly scream "cool" either. Yet, the event could have easily been mistaken for an exclusive fashion party. The host committee read like a veritable who's who of the fashion industry and downtown scene: Lena Dunham, The Man Repeller's Leandra Medine, Pamela Love, Emily Weiss, Vogue's Chloe Malle and Thessaly La Force, and Claire Distenfeld were all listed. Harper's Bazaar's Laura Brown and Prabal Gurung came out, too. So why were they there?
And that's a wrap. The 2013 CFDA award winners have been named and now they're out partying at The Standard (the official Swarovski-sponsored after party) and Westway (the exclusive Givenchy after-party) and wherever else the night may take them. Proenza Schouler nabbed their third win for womenswear designer of the year (they won in 2007 and 2011) beating out Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs. See who else took top honors this year.
The CFDA Awards--aka fashion's Oscars--are upon us. But unlike the Oscars, where celebs tend to play it safe and throw on a strapless fish-tail number, the CFDA red carpet tends to be a bit more interesting, a bit more risky. These are fashion people trying to impress other fashion people, after all. So with that in mind, take a look at what everyone from Hillary Clinton to Jessica Chastain wore tonight.
The 2013 CFDA awards, fashion's Oscars if you will, will be handed out in mere hours. The industry has been gathering to recognize and honor its leading talents since 1981. A lot has changed since the early years of the awards. What was once a small intimate industry event is now a widely covered celebrity event. "I think it reflects a broader shift over the last few years where fashion has become more and more popular," Style.com's editor in chief Dirk Standen told us. "The internet has had a lot to do with that. It's entertainment on a par with movies and music." So to prep you for tonight's awards we've assembled this handy primer. In it you'll find the complete list of nominees, our predictions on who will take home the big prizes, and all the celebrity presenters and attendees slated to show up.
What does an Anna Wintour-approved web series look like? Now, we know. Vogue's online programming will debut May 8 (after the Met Ball), and you can already watch teasers on the glossy's YouTube channel.
Following in the footsteps of the annual CFDA/Lexus Eco-Fashion Challenge (now in its third year), the CFDA has taken another step towards making fashion more sustainable. Today, the CFDA has announced the creation of the first-ever sustainability committee.
Donna Karan is auctioning off her heart--three of them, in fact, alongside those of nearly 150 designers. But don't go scheduling a transplant just yet. These hearts are made from paper mâché by Haitian locals, and though they might not be able to pump blood, Karan hopes they'll bring life force to the country of Haiti.
Sneakers are having a serious moment in fashion right now. And there's no sneaker more 'it' than Suno's crazy-patterned kicks--I mean, even the guys

The winner will receive a cash prize and mentorship from an industry veteran. Joseph Altuzarra took home the top prize ($300,000) for 2011, while runners up Pamela Love and Creatures of the Wind got $100,000 each. All three of them got to design a capsule collection for J. Crew. And, it was all documented on a Hulu show. Now, the following designers will embark on a series of challenges over the next few months, including presenting to a panel of judges, creating a one-of-a-kind piece for Tiffany & Co., and staging a runway show in Los Angeles at the Chateau Marmont. The winner and runners up will be announced at a gala dinner November 13. So, without further ado, the finalists are...
