Almost a year ago, Global Brands acquired a majority stake in Sean John, the brand started by Sean “Diddy” Combs that will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year. The main premise of the deal was to expand the line’s global presence, which Jeff Tweedy, Sean John’s president, said will begin in 2018. As the Sean John team prepares to grow the company internationally, they are focusing on broadening the assortment and fine tuning its marketing.
Tweedy has tapped two Atlanta musicians to lead its holiday and spring marketing campaigns entitled “Dream Big.” They are Jacquees, the singer behind “B.E.D.,” whose real name is Rodriquez Broadnax, and YFN Lucci, the rapper behind “Everyday We Lit,” whose real name is Rashawn Bennett.

(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
