Debbie Murtha, senior vice president of cosmetics for Macy's Merchandising Group, issued a call to arms during a recent Fashion Group International beauty symposium for more collaboration between vendors and retailers at a time when retail consolidation is redrawing the beauty landscape in department stores.
"'Integration' and 'collaboration' have to be the operative words," she said of efforts between vendors and retailers during the event's panel discussion. "'Them versus 'us' has to be eradicated — we have to be in [concert]. This hasn't been the case."
"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)
