Organizers of Première Vision New York, which runs Jan. 16 and 17 at Pier 94, said sustainability and creativity are the central themes of its winter edition. This year, the event showcases 254 exhibitors across the fabric, leather, textile design and accessories sectors.
Fabric behaviors this season will be “malleable, supple and runny,” while accessories will “play on shine,” according to Julie Greux, the new deputy fashion director of Première Vision. Delicacy is an apparent theme this year, as willowy patterns and softened structures are noted as prevailing trends. Also, a new color range will be presented at the event, which will tie in key seasonal trends across ready-to-wear, accessories, leather goods, shoes and fashion jewelry materials. Première Vision will also showcase local fashion-manufacturing solutions representative of its CFDA, Fashion Manufacturing Initiative program and New York City Economic Development Corp. partnership. The collaboration seeks to highlight local solutions at the show that “nurture, elevate and preserve garment production” in New York.
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.”
Meet Flamingo. The direct-to-consumer brand is Harry’s first foray into products designed specifically for women. The line goes beyond shaving, venturing into a space that is typically relegated to darker corners of the drugstore — at-home waxing. #wwdbeauty
