FASHION REVIEW: New York 1 News, an all-news cable TV station in New York, will get into major fashion for the first time with a one-hour segment on the 7th on Sixth fashion week. The show airs Sunday night at 8 p.m. and will be rebroadcast on Monday at 11 a.m. Reporter Sharon Dizenhus interviewed Anna Wintour, Liz Tilberis and Bonnie Fuller about the role fashion media have in making or breaking individual lines, as well as the grueling side of modeling. Looks from Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Ralph Lauren, Isaac Mizrahi, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Francis Roth and Steven Stolman are expected to be included.
SWINGING SALES: The premiere edition of Swing, published by David Lauren, has sold out all 220,000 copies in eight days, according to a Swing spokeswoman. The magazine, distributed by Hearst, sold especially well at Stanford University, New York University and incipient rival Condé Nast Publications' in-house newsstand, she said.
GALERIES GROUPIE: The latest European fashion business to launch its own publication is Galeries Lafayette. The Paris department store printed 1.2 million copies of the magazine's first issue, Galeries Attitude, which bears the subtitle "the anti-gloom newspaper of Galeries Lafayette." Galeries Attitude is aimed at the 18-to-25 age group and designed to market the store's new "Special Jeunes," youth charge card. The Galeries magazine joins Chanel, Benetton, Mustang Jeans and Hermès in the publishing game. However, unlike other in-house publications, the bimonthly Galeries Attitudes contains ads. The 16-page opening issue has single pages for L'Oréal's latest scent, Harley-Davidson; Drakkar Noir; Tynant mineral water, and even a ZZ Top concert ad.
STYLISH WINDOW DRESSING: Bloomingdale's will give its customers a peek at how celebrities spend their holidays. In conjunction with In Style magazine, Daisy Fuentes, Bebe Neuwirth, Jane Seymour, Russell Simmons and Veronica Webb will design Bloomingdale's Lexington Avenue windows with their interpretations of holiday entertaining. The windows go up Monday and will remain through Nov. 20. The "Holidays In Style" promotion will culminate with a fund-raising event at Bloomingdale's on Nov. 15 to benefit DIFFA. In addition, well-known personalities such as Iman, Marc Jacobs, Isaac Mizrahi, Rosie O'Donnell, Todd Oldham, Eartha Kitt, Beverly Peele and Branford Marsalis will design holiday wreaths that will be auctioned at benefit.CHANGES AT HB: Laura Cherensky has been named associate publisher of Harper's Bazaar. She succeeds Jeannette Chang, who in August moved up to publisher. Previously, Cherensky was associate publisher of New Woman.
HAIR STYLE: Amber Valleta (below) has been picked as the face--or head--of Redken Laboratories' new ad campaign, created by Chiat/Day, which kicks off in February. "We were trying to find one model who represented the woman of the Nineties and had healthy-looking hair," said James Morrison, vice president and general manager of Redken, a subsidiary of L'Oreal. Morrison wouldn't say what color hair Valleta will have in the ad, but noted that the campaign will appear in black-and-white to attract readers with all types of hair color. The campaign will run in about a dozen fashion, health and fitness magazines. Morrison wouldn't divulge the ad budget.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
