VOWING TO VOTE: For the fourth year in a row, NBC’s “Today” show and its viewers get to act as wedding planners by choosing the various elements of a couple’s marriage, including the location, dress, cake and rings.
Each week, a different part of the wedding is presented on the show and viewers can vote for their favorite through the show’s Web site. The segment, “Today Throws A Wedding,” runs throughout the summer. Last month, the audience chose Seneca and Chris, who live in Erie, Mich. as their favorite couple. So far, they will be married on a 200-foot-long glass enclosed boat in New York, similar to the dinner boats that sail up and down the Seine in Paris, and will wear wedding bands designed by Stephen Russell.
On Wednesday, the decision about what dress Seneca will wear is to be announced. The four gown contenders are Badgley Mischka, Ulla Maija, Anne Barge and Priscilla of Boston. The bridesmaids finalists are out today: Vera Wang, Kathlin Argiro, Amsale and Jenny Yoo.
JONES’ NEW SIGNATURE: Since Jones Apparel Group said last month it would launch an in-house line to take over where the licensed Lauren business will leave off, the name of that line has been up in the air. Now, WWD has confirmed the line will be called Jones New York Signature and will encompass all components of a woman’s wardrobe, including sportswear, dresses and suits. Retailers were notified of the new name in a recent mailing, according to a Jones spokeswoman. The spring line will open to retailers this September and will be housed in a showroom at 1411 Broadway in Manhattan.

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.
