    Fashion Photography Is The Art World's Rising Star
    Melanie Abrams | MYTimes.com
    “Today, fashion photography is art’s rising star, drawing large crowds to exhibitions (which produce much-needed revenue from sponsorships, rentals and even merchandise) and enticing more collectors. Even the fashion industry itself is showing more respect for the form.”

Now, the school is opening Shop657, a store in Union Square that will both display AAU designs and give merchandising students real-world experience.

    Can fashion designers make tech wearables truly wearable?
    Jiaxi Lu | washingtonpost.com

    When tech companies talk about wearable devices, fashion designers have been listening.

     

    The latest product that combined efforts from the two industries is Ralph Lauren‘s tech-embedded sports shirt, unveiled last week at the start of the U.S. Open tennis championships. The shirt, called Polo Tech, features knitted-in sensors to read people’s biometrics, including heartbeat and respiration.

    Royal College of Art, An Institutional Innovator
    ROBIN MELLERY-PRATT | BOF.com
    LONDON, United Kingdom — A respectful hush emanates from the red-brick mansion blocks that surround the Royal College of Art (RCA). The college is situated in the sedate, residential heart of South Kensington, a bastion of austere Victorian civic engineering, home to London’s famous museum district and a stone’s throw away from the Royal Albert Hall. It is perhaps the last place on earth one would imagine to be the home of creative innovation. Yet despite its venerable age of 177, the RCA is at the very forefront of modern menswear.

    Apple Plans to Announce Wearable in September
    John Paczkowski | recode.net
    “Apple now plans to unveil a new wearable alongside the two next-generation iPhones we told you the company will debut on September 9. (Funny “joke,” Gruber.) The new device will, predictably, make good use of Apple’s HealthKit health and fitness platform.”

    See How Much Chanel Bag Prices Have Skyrocketed This Decade
    Casey Lewis | Racked.com
    A classic Chanel bag is one of those items, like Louboutin heels or aBurberry trench, that fashion-obsessed girls seem to aspire to from birth, partly because they're timeless, but also because when you're an impressionable 16-year-old who's addicted to Vogue, it's the kind of thing you think you need.

    Shhh... Luxury Goods Are Discounted In China
    By Liza Lin | Businessweek.com
    Luxury goods makers have long valued Chinese consumers not just because of their huge appetite for Gucci bags and Cartier watches—consultancy Bain estimates that Chinese purchased a third of all luxury goods sold globally in 2013—but also for their willingness to pay more than their Western counterparts.

    Killing the Skinny Jean
    Bloomberg

    It shouldn’t be hard to kill skinny jeans. After all, women love and loathe them in equal measure.

     

    Three years ago, clothing merchants tried to snuff out the trend with an innovation called flares. Women kept right on buying their skinnies. Now, chains from mass market Gap Inc. (GPS) to luxury-leaning Bloomingdale’s are trying again with looser styles. Gap’s answer: dressy sweat pants.

    The Model Whisperer: Stephen Galloway
    CHRISTOPHER ROSS | online.wsj.com
    Stephen Galloway, former principal dancer for Ballet Frankfurt, now uses his classic training to choreograph the world's top models-and the Rolling Stones

    Galloway, a self-described "creative movement director" who has worked with top brands like Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci and photographers such as Juergen Teller and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, occupies a unique place in the fashion world. Drawing on two decades of experience as the principal dancer for Germany's Ballet Frankfurt, he imbues the physical tableaux of glossy ads and fashion editorials with a stylized language of movement-a turn of a wrist, a cocked head, an extended leg-that's equal parts Balanchine and voguing.

    Gareth Pugh Is About to Disrupt New York Fashion Week
    The New York Times
    The questions of whether traditional fashion shows have any validity anymore, and whether they are actually entertainment and we should just embrace the change, are about to enter the conversation again.

    The Future of Fashion & Menswear: Do We Need London Collections: Men?
    hypebeast.com
    Britain is no stranger to the fashion industry. In fact, studies have proven the UK as being the global origin of men’s fashion through the county’s introduction of traditional classics like the bowler hat, the dandy, the tie, the three-piece suit, tweed, tartan, and others. It comes as no surprise then that in only three years, London Collections: Men has become the industry’s leading platform for both emerging and established British designers.
