Laura Geller’s latest launch, the first major introduction under the ownership of Glansaol, was discovered by happenstance.
Geller, who is well-versed in camera filters used to enhance appearance from her days as a makeup artist, was working on a set with the company’s global artistic director, Ashlee Glazer. She noticed that when Glazer held up one of the brand’s opalescent packages under her chin, the light caught the hues in just the right way. “Her skin looked unbelievable,” Geller told WWD. “I thought if I could figure out a way to capture how her skin looked right then, it would be the coolest thing. Every now and then I have an ‘a-ha’ moment and take it to my product development team.”

Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for customers, friends, family — and herself — for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
