Two years ago, Robin Chang and Luke Goldstein were leading professional lives that most twentysomethings would envy — she was working as a women’s wear designer at Theory and he was a men’s product strategist. But a lunch with Sarah LaFleur, founder and chief executive officer of direct-to-consumer workwear label MM.LaFleur, changed their perspectives.
“At the time, seeing the business that Sarah, and other entrepreneurs like her in our industry, had built was incredibly inspiring for Robin and I — it opened our eyes to the disruptive potential of the DTC space and really gave us the courage to venture out on our own,” Goldstein recalled. “I had always felt that there was a huge opportunity to start a brand that was more relevant and meaningful for people my age, but needed a female creative collaborator, so I chased Robin down outside of our building one day.”
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.”
