Jewelry designers Rebecca Overmann, known for her hand-carved pieces, and Lauren Wolf, best known for her store Esqueleto and her namesake label, believe small is beautiful when it comes to trade shows.
Friends for many years, Overmann and Wolf met at various trade shows in New York and Las Vegas. “Over the years we felt the size of the show at NY Now was just too impersonal and that the ‘jewelry’ category was oversaturated and poorly curated. It was difficult, as both a buyer and a designer, to find what you were looking for at NY Now,” Wolf said. To wit: Last year they founded their own gathering, Melee the Show.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
