Neiman Marcus’ beauty department is about to welcome the indies.
Today will see the launch of the retailer’s ShopTheExpo, an indie beauty assortment of 15 new-to-Neiman’s brands spanning the skin-care, color and body-care spaces that will be sold on neimanmarcus.com for three months. The project, a collaboration with the Indie Beauty Expo, will kick off with a two-day pop-up Saturday and Sunday at the retailer’s store in the NorthPark Center in Dallas. All brand founders will be in attendance to educate and do meet-and-greets with consumers over the course of the weekend.

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
