“I really believe a brand is a living thing and you have to nurture it the way you nurture a child. You can not show it any neglect whatsoever. It’s like an amoeba, it’s continually moving and you have to move in the right direction,” said Tommy Hilfiger during a conversation with Michelle Peluso, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of IBM, at the NRF Tuesday.
Titled, “The Power of Disruption,” Hilfiger gave the packed house insight into how the 33-year-old brand has managed to stay young and spirited, relevant with pop culture and ahead of the pack with technological innovations such as artificial intelligence, a chatbot and the company’s Snap:Shop App. It has also built up a huge following with its TommyNow see-now-buy-now fashion shows in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, London and, up next, Milan.
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
