NEW YORK -- A seminar on developments in home shopping is the first event scheduled by The Fashion Roundtable, a new organization of fashion and related-business executives based here. It will be held Thursday starting at 5 p.m. at the National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South.
The Roundtable was founded in December by attorney Charles Klein of Davidoff & Malito, who will host the panel discussionentitled "A Conversation About Television Home Shopping." Scheduled panelists include designers Arnold Scaasi and Diane Von Furstenberg; QVC's director of television services, Mark Bozek; Q2 president Candice Carpenter; John Pinocci, vice president of Home Shopping Network; Kurt Barnard, president and publisher of Barnard Enterprises, retail consultants; Martin P. Krasner, president, Costume Jewelry Co.; Kenneth Linder, vice president of the private label division of Eminent Sportswear, and Viola Stasio Troop, president of R&V International/Global Licensing.
The second event, scheduled for March 24 at the same location, will be on the future of retailing and trends for the Nineties.
Klein, whose clients include Todd Oldham, Tom and Linda Platt and the Fashion Association, said he got the idea to start the group after organizing some seminars on fashion business.
Claiming the organization has 200 members, Klein said he's trying to develop a varied membership base. Klein also sees the association as a networking and mentoring group with open discussion of business problems.
Klein said membership is being recruited through a mailing of about 5,000 brochures. The annual membership fee will be $75, which will include free admission to two seminars. The non-member cost for the home shopping seminar is $45.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
