Color and specialty chemical company Archroma said it entered a partnership with the House of Denim Foundation, a nonprofit organization that launches strategic initiatives to advance the denim industry. The company plans to share its expertise and network with House of Denim and support the organization with yearly financial contributions to its “Denim City” program.
Archroma Offers Advanced Biodegradable Product for TextilesThe House of Denim’s adage, “Towards a Brighter Blue,” encapsulates its efforts in the industry to make denim “cleaner, dryer and smarter, through education, research and innovation, enterprise and networking,” the organization said. House of Denim established its “Denim City” in Amsterdam by creating a campus for the industry that offers facilities such as its Blue Lab, the Academy and the Jean School. And through this partnership, Archroma and House of Denim are focused on further advancing the Denim City campus via the addition of Archroma’s designer-specific Color Atlas color library; the implementation of best practices for safety, health and environmental applications for Denim City’s Blue Lab, and enhancing the skills and knowledge for its Academy and Jean School participants.

(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
