MELBOURNE — Fashion executives revealed the ins and outs of designer collaborations and shed light on the corporate strategies of Hennes & Mauritz, Esprit, Acne and Bally at last month's L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival Business Seminar.
Former H&M executives Jan Nord and Jörgen Andersson — both of whom have since decamped to Esprit, talked about what it was like working with Karl Lagerfeld and Rei Kawakubo and expressed dismay that Miuccia Prada turned down an offer. Her "design signatures would translate so well," reasoned Nord.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
