MILAN — The Yoox Net-a-porter Group has taken its commitment in promoting digital education a step further: The leading online luxury fashion retailer commissioned research in the U.K. to investigate what keeps young women from pursuing studies in technology.
Surveying 1,000 young people ages 11 to 16 and 1,000 parents of children in that same age bracket, the study shows that even if young women are aware of the availability of careers in technology, half of them believe that these are “unexciting,” while more than two-thirds think roles in tech are mainly about gaming and IT consultancy.
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.”
