Harlem Fashion Row, LVM host 50 future fashion designers at Melba’s

Harlem Fashion Row’s (HFR) Lunch and Learn affair, held recently at Melba’s Restaurant in Harlem, NYC, was a tremendous success! This well-attended event, done in collaboration with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), featured a panel discussion where industry executives highlighted important business tips for fifty talented high school students who participate in either celebrity stylist Misa Hilton’s Fashion Academy or Tony Danza’s The Stars of Tomorrow Program. 

Students dressed to impress. Their looks were fashion-forward, and in some cases, futuristic and colorful. Melba’s delicious three-course lunch featured all of the tasty, yummy cultural delicacies the restaurant is famous for.

Living legend and HFR’s “Godfather,” Dapper Dan (Daniel Day) and Tiffany L. Zeno, show producer with NBC Universal Local, were in attendance, along with fashion mogul Misa Hilton. The three fashion designers showing in HFR’s upcoming Fall 2022 NYFW show, Clarence Ruth, Johnathan Hayden, and Nicole Benefield, were also in the house.  

Moderated by Brandice Daniels, CEO & founder of HFR, the guest panelists included Corey Smith, VP Diversity Inclusion LVMH; Jasmine Humphrey, Global PR director, Tiffany’s & Co.; Nelson Gillum, director, Consumer Engagement, Moet Hennessy.

HFR’s Lunch and Learn event provided invaluable insights into breaking through adversity in fashion for upper echelon leadership of color.

“We wanted to do something with the fashion community and decided this was the right place and time,” said Daniels. “We are here to serve you.” When you are working for a company, “make sure you have a comfortable experience,” advised Corey Smith. “Expand your world. Read the stories of Black authors like Malcolm X, James Baldwin, Richard Wright.” 

Brandice asked the students what words inspired them. Answers included, “Love,” “Creativity,” “Confidence,” “Humanity,” and “Being adaptable.” Nelson insisted that,  “After high school, students should spend time finding out who they are. And, question

Elsa Schiaparelli was the mother of strange fashion

Eye for the unusual: Schiaparelli was a designer who put things where they should not have been (Getty)

A woman wears a long thermometer on a hook hanging from her ear, her chin upturned and eyes gently closed, in a photograph taken by artist Man Ray around 1920, not long after the influenza pandemic of 1918.

One hundred years later, another woman hangs on her ear a negative Covid-19 rapid test, decorated with rhinestones and a dangling gold heart. This photo was taken in late 2021.

These are the images – which have nothing and everything to do with the designer Elsa Schiaparelli – that came to mind while walking through a new exhibition dedicated to the Italian-born couturière, who founded her label in 1927.

Schiaparelli was a designer who put things where they should not have been: hands on belts, aspirin on necklaces, cicadas on buttons, claws on the fingertips of gloves. But these “little jokes,” as The New Yorker wrote of her style in 1932, “turned out to be big influences”. (The jokes were also, at times, so practical that they became less funny: during Prohibition, Schiaparelli sold an evening coat with a bustle able to conceal a flask; later, she made a jumpsuit to wear in air raid shelters.)

But the designer has also developed a reputation for being “underrated,” says Olivier Gabet, director of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, which is presenting Shocking! The Surreal World of Elsa Schiaparelli. It opened last month and continues until 22 January 2023.

“You understand the invisibility of women artists with the case of Schiaparelli,” Gabet says. Though a handful of museums have devoted major fashion exhibitions to her in the past 20 years, Schiaparelli is less recognised within the

Fans couldn’t believe Lila’s toenails in the snapCredit: Instagram

Lila, 19, took to Instagram to show off her latest modelling shoot, which showed her biting into cherries as she looked into the camera.

The high-fashion shoot saw Lila tied her hair up in braids wrapped around her head, as she wore a minimalistic, dewy make-up look.

Wearing a black dress with large puff sleeves, the teen completed her look with an unusual fashion choice – leaving fans distracted.

Photographing her feet behind the scenes of the Perfect Magazine shoot, Lila revealed her long, talon-like toenails painted in red.

Lila wore sparkling heels which showed off her pointed toenails in their full glory – as they extended out over the base of the shoe.

Her Instagram fans were left baffled by the choice, and took to the comments section to ask how sh put her socks on.

“How do you wear socks with those nails?” one confused fan asked, as another said: “Them toes about to cut people, damn.”

A third chimed in: “The nails made me physically sick,” as a fourth joked of their pointed shape: “Imagine getting toed to death.”

“The toenails are a hard no,” a fifth concluded of the snap.

Big baggy Noughties trousers own Copenhagen Fashion Week

(James Cochrane/Jaded London/Evening Standard)

As COPENHAGEN Fashion Week’s SS23 edition kicked off this week, hordes of international fashion folk swarmed the Danish capital to see what the Scandi set predicts will be big next summer.

Just as the fashion week itself has grown in importance in recent years thanks to its impressive sustainability requirements and the addition of several international names to the schedule, so too the Scandi street style scene has earned its rep as a harbinger of trends to come.

And if the Copenhagen cool kids, once known for their love of feminine florals and bold colour, have decreed anything this week, it’s the ascent of an altogether grungier Y2K-inflected aesthetic. Wraparound shades, acid wash denim, bomber jackets and belly chains have been as commonplace as the city’s pastries but the standout style star of the week, both on and off the runways, has without doubt been big baggy trousers.

Inspired by everyone from All Saints to Aaliyah, this season’s top troos are set to come wide-leg, pocket-covered and probably with a drawstring waist. Danish label Gestuz opened the week’s schedule with a collection inspired by LA in the Nineties and early Noughties that was jam-packed with big baggy cargo pants in everything from luxe lime green tailoring to thong-flashing silver and denim with drawstring hems.

“We have worked with the silhouette for some seasons now, but for SS23 we really went all-out,” said founder and creative director Sanne Sehested, who was inspired by “the late Nineties/ early Noughties It girls wearing really big cargo trousers with small tops and bikinis. It became a representation of our collection and the type of sexy we wanted to embrace. Something really contrasted.”

And certainly the oversized low-slung distressed leather cargo pants she paired with a cut-out silver

Tottenham vs Fulham: Predictions, tips & betting odds

The visitors have started the season in strong scoring fashion and should be able to keep that run going when they visit north London

Tottenham host Fulham in a Premier League London derby on Saturday afternoon as Antonio Conte’s men aim to get back to winning ways.

Spurs were held to a draw in midweek but another capital club West Ham, and while they are still unbeaten this season, the north Londoners will be disappointed with anything other than a victory this weekend.

Fulham for their part have started the season well and recorded their second win of the campaign on Tuesday night against Brighton.

Tottenham vs Fulham latest odds

The hosts are massive favourites having won eight of their last nine home league matches with bet365 offering them at 9/20 (1.45) to claim three points.

Fulham have only won two of their last 16 away league games with both of those victories coming in 2021 on Merseyside.

The visitors are priced at 6/1 (7.00) with the draw on offer at 7/2 (4.50).

Tottenham vs Fulham first goal scorer

Harry Kane opened the scoring in Spurs’ last home match against Wolves netting the only goal of the encounter and the England captain is available at 3/1 (4.00) to break the deadlock.

Heung-min Son is yet to score this season having been the Premier League top scorer last term and the South Korean forward is priced at 9/2 (5.50) to score first.

New signing Richarlison is available at 11/2 (6.50) to net what would be his first goal for the club, while Fulham’s Alexsandar Mitrovic is offered at 7/1 (8.00).

Tottenham vs Fulham preview

Fulham’s positive start to the season has been thanks in large part to the goals of Aleksandar Mitrovic, with the Serbian striker following on from

While fashion trends ebb and flow, one thing’s for sure: Confidence and creativity never go out of style. Take it from Sports Illustrated curve model Ella Halikas, who recently recreated two of model-actress Julia Fox’s famously skin-baring styles, writing in her empowering Instagram captions: “Thick girls can rock this ‘fit, too.”

So, what are we wearing? Subscribe to Reviewed’s weekly Style Check newsletter to get the answers from stylish people.

Halikas, who hit the runway for Miami Swim Week 2022 and appeared in Sports Illustrated’s 2021 swimsuit issue, is known to show off her sense of style both on and off the catwalk. If you’re looking for tips on sporting celebrity- and model-worthy styles yourself, follow Halikas’ advice for finding looks you love at any size.

Copy your favorite celebrities’ outfits

When Halikas saw Fox sporting a teeny, low-rise skirt—as social media bemoaned the Y2K trend resurgence—she sought to prove the style statement’s return isn’t all bad news. “I kind of looked at [the social media reaction] as motivation to prove people wrong that you don’t have to be very small to wear this and rock it,” she says. She recreated the iconic look by cutting apart an Aritzia crop top and an Amazon dress, showing off the homemade matching set in Instagram posts that earned a like from Fox herself.

Whether it’s rising to the occasion with low-rise, thinking Barbiecore pink, or copying a look from your favorite influencer, don’t be afraid to take celebrity-loved trends for a spin. “Once you just do it once or twice, you start to make a habit of going for pieces

Here are the best thrift and consignment stores in Calgary (MAP)

We love a good thrift find. And as many fellow thrifters know, the hunt for second-hand treasures can be very rewarding!

So, we’ve created our own treasure map of sorts of some of our favourite thrift and consignment stores around Calgary.

Oldies but goodies

Value Village (Southland and Macleod location)

Everyone knows the Value Village name, not only thrifters. But this VV Boutique is absolutely massive. If you’ve been in the Calgary area for a while, you might already know that this building used to house a Safeway but it’s now a preloved paradise. We definitely recommend setting aside at least an hour (if not more) to search through the rows upon rows of beautiful bargains.

Where: 9737 Macleod Trail SW

Goodwill (Plaza location)

This one is another hefty store. It’s not too far from the aforementioned Va-Louis Vuilage so you could easily hit them both in an afternoon.

Where: 9655 Macleod Trail SW

Hidden Gems

Glenmore Thrift Store

This little place is one of our favourites and it deserves some love. This used to be a Sally Ann, but management and the Salvation Army parted ways. The team running this store uses its money to help out a local food bank.

The shop is small and tucked away, but don’t let that deter you. The prices here are always great, something the store prides itself on, and there’s always something there worth finding. Plus, if you bring in a bag of donations (clothes, toys, books, household items, etc.) you will get a $10-off coupon!

Where: 3146 Glenmore Court SE

Bella Hadid’s Best Fashion Week Runway Looks: Paris, Milan, & More

There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it — Bella Hadid is without question, one of the world’s top models. Along with sister Gigi, she’s always one to watch when fashion week rolls around. She’s become famous for her head-turning street style and ever-stunning red carpet looks, but the trendsetting 25-year-old also knows how to turn a runway look into a moment.

No matter the show, or what she’s modeling, Hadid always seems to hit that catwalk as if Cheetah Girls’ “Strut” is playing in her head (IYKYK). From New York to London to Paris, all of the most notable and influential luxury brands have tapped her to debut their designs. This includes iconic fashion houses like Vivienne Westwood, Fendi, and Givenchy, as well as buzzy brands founded in the 2010s like Off-White, Coperni, and Khaite.

Whether the model is decked out in luxe couture or a fierce ready-to-wear ‘fit, she wears the clothes, not the other way around. The supermodel holds her own on the runway, making it her personal stage, walking it with total confidence. Though Hadid has taken well-publicized spills in the past, she shows no signs of intimidation when she enters the room. She walks with a certain boldness — with undeniable nerve and spunk.

With fall’s fashion month well underway, I’ve rounded up some of the most memorable runway looks from Bella Hadid’s career thus far. So, step into my fashion time machine and check out her best fashion week moments.
