BPD Expo, a pop-up denim trade show organized by BPD Washhouse and Washhouse Denim, cherry-picked a selection of 18 denim mills and manufacturers to exhibit at its biannual event in New York. The show was held at an intimate space in Soho on Jan. 24 to 25.
Described as the “antitrade show,” BPD Expo is designed for the time-crunched New Yorker. It does not exhibit in traditional trade show halls, offer panels, or any bells and whistles for that matter — rather, its no-frills approach is squarely focused on helping brands source quality denim in a decidedly casual environment. And, the show enlightens attendees on aspects of denim culture and offers a peek into how denim is dyed, via its Shibori demonstration — a Japanese dyeing technique — and its indigo dye display.
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
