CHILDREN’S WEAR: CHICKEN NOODLE
Bright and whimsical prints — from kittens to clowns — that little girls love are the signature at Chicken Noodle, a moderate to better label that’s mostly found in specialty stores. Co-owner and designer April Ward, along with her husband and co-owner Rory Ward, founded the company about 12 years ago, with headquarters in Oakland, Calif
MEN’S: BARRY BRICKEN
Barry Bricken started designing men’s clothing in the Seventies when he and his brother took over the family men’s pant business in Baltimore with the goal of raising the quality and pricing. Bricken moved to New York and made his mark under his own label by tailoring British tweeds and Italian flannels into clean, classic clothing. Bricken also has a women’s collection and seven stores nationwide, including one in Dallas, and more to come.
SPORTSWEAR: CHRISTINE PHILLIPE
A heavy dose of novelty is just what the doctor ordered for Christine Phillipe, who has created a $10-million-a-year business by jazzing up sportswear with beading and embroidery. "About four years ago, I really concentrated on a new stretch fabric and unusual novelty-decorated sportswear because I didn’t see much of that in the market," Phillipe reflected. "Our customer is 25 to 75 and she wants to look special and be noticed. She feels like a movie star whether she is a size 16 or a size 2." The award came as a big surprise to Phillipe, even though she has seen her Dallas business grow considerably over the past year. "It feels heavenly," she sighed. " We are so honored to have won this, you have no idea."

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
