Bloomingdale’s is putting working mothers on a pedestal as it redoubles its Mother’s Day efforts to capitalize on National Retail Federation’s assertion that this will be a near-record year, with $23.1 billion in projected sales. The NRF and Prosper Insights & Analytics said an average of $180 per person will be spent on gifts for mom.
Mombosses, the theme of Bloomingdale’s multiplatform effort highlights working mothers in high-profile careers — they’re featured in a catalogue and in the windows of the 59th Street flagship in Manhattan. Among the women featured are Jessie Randall, founder and creative director of Loeffler Randall; Emma Grede, cofounder with Khloé Kardashian of size-inclusive apparel brand Good American, and Temple St. Clair, founder of the eponymous jewelry brand. Each woman shares her personal style and recalls her favorite Mother’s Day gifts.
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
