Cynthia Rowley, an inveterate traveler, is no stranger to the peripatetic life, flying to far-flung locales and staying just long enough to get her work done and take in the sights. It’s no wonder the designer calls her answer to the retail malaise, Nomadic retail, a concept that’s fast-paced, creative and impermanent.
The Nomadic stores begin as temporary units, but Rowley said, “that doesn’t mean we don’t extend the leases or roll into something a little more permanent.

(Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
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
