Name: Monique Dash
Sports Passion: Teaching aerobics
What She Wears and Why: "Because I teach a dance-based type of aerobics called funk, I like the layered look - boxer shorts, bike shorts and a crop top - because it gives me a street feeling. It's not the standard leotards and tight."
Name: Jodi Adams
Sports Passion: Rock Climbing
What She Wears and Why: "Climbing requires a lot of flexibility and movement. You have to wear comfortable clothes, but they have to be snug, too. You have to be able to see your feet. The one thing I don't like to wear is nylon - especially those shiny tights. I prefer cotton with Lycra."
Name: Barbara Schlaks
Sports Passion: Working as a personal trainer at Physical Focus
What She Wears and Why: "I like crop tops, short-shorts or leggings in Lycra. Anything form-fitting and bare, bacause it's important for me to see the different muscles working as I work on them."
Name: Ashley Merritt
Sports Passion: Watching the pros
What She Wears and Why: "I like to wear sport clothes everywhere - Lycra leggings and tops, tennis shoes, a baseball cap. I love horseback riding, swimming and boxing. And because I model, I'm running around a lot, going from go-sees to the gym and back to more go-sees. This uniform is great because potantial clients can see that I'm in shape."

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

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.

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)
