Ah, Millennials. The hot-button demographic continues to impress — and worry — merchants, marketers and executives eyeing the generation to secure needed revenue. Nielsen’s “Millennials on Millennials: Why We Matter” report puts the demographic in the driver’s seat to examine their spending patterns and how they view their future as consumers.
“As Millennials age and progress in their careers, more households will be led by this dynamic consumer group, and their purchasing power will grow with them. Across generations in Canada, Millennials are the most financially optimistic, with 28 percent stating they are better off financially today than they were a year ago,” the report said.
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand. At the event, Ferragni took some time to sit down with us to discuss motherhood, being a newlywed, and the hotly-anticipated documentary she is currently filming.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
