UJA HONOREES: More than 200 industry apparel executives turned out for the UJA Federation Apparel Division's award gala at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan during market week for two executives from the innerwear manufacturing and retail fields: Nancy Wade, divisional merchandise manager of the intimate apparel operation at Wal-Mart Stores, and Dov Lautman, chairman of Tel Aviv, Israel-based Delta Galil Industries. They were presented with Distinguished Service Awards for their contributions to the fashion apparel industry and community involvement.DELTA'S FIGURES: Softer North American sales coupled with special charges slashed Delta Galil Industries Inc.'s first-quarter revenues and bottom line.For the three months ended March 31, the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company reported a 36.8 percent drop in net earnings to $1.8 million, or 10 cents a diluted share. That compares with net income of $2.9 million, or 15 cents, a year ago. During the first quarter, the intimate apparel maker took one-time charges aggregating to $800,000, or 4 cents, related to the cancellation of a supplier contract, the shuttering of a Dominican sewing plant and other write-offs. Excluding the charges, the company would have posted first-quarter profits of $2.6 million, or 14 cents a share.Total revenues for the period fell 7.1 percent to $124.8 million from $134.3 million a year ago. North American sales, which account for 52 percent of Delta Galil's total, slumped 12 percent to $64.5 million compared with $73.5 million in last year's first quarter.Chief executive officer Arnon Tiberg attributed the lower sales to weak U.S. retail conditions, especially in the specialty and department store segments.Partially offsetting the North American revenue decline was a 5 percent increase in sales to the company's biggest customer, U.K. chain Marks & Spencer, which purchased $37.6 million of Delta Galil's wares in the quarter.

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.
