LONDON — For a while last year, Allegra Hicks was looking like just another victim of the credit crunch, having had to pull out of London Fashion Week, shutter her ready-to-wear business, and close her stores in Manhattan and London.

Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
