5 Mistakes Every Groom Should Avoid

While future brides-to-be scroll through Pinterest boards and wedding-dress websites and pack their Saturdays with appointments at chic bridal boutiques full of pink Champagne and roses, their male counterparts can hardly begin to seek out their own personal style without confronting a paucity of less than optimal options. Take my husband, for example: a classic jeans-and-tee guy who spent a half-year good-heartedly listening to me bitch about what wedding dress to buy. In turn, I spent all…

Weaving tales of goodness

The late British fashion doyen Alexander McQueen once said, “I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it.” Kavitha Chandran, founder of fashion accessories label Urmi, is clearly a subscriber of McQueen’s sentiment. The fashion entrepreneur has found beauty in nondegradable plastic waste. In…

Ahead of the Curve

Size doesn’t determine style, but it is known for altering availability. Teeny sample sizes and brands that cap out too small are the norm. And while the fashion world is slow-moving when it comes to updating its sizes and options, St. Louisan Qristyl Frazier is bridging the gap by making chic pieces for sizes 6 to 28.

From Janet Jackson to Mary J. Blige, Rosie O’Donnell and Queen Latifah, pieces by Qristyl Frazier Designs (QFD) have been worn and promoted by celebrities for years.…

Picture books with lively content

Images of a little boy on the seashore in the 1960s or a newborn baby devouring mother’s milk might are not generally considered part of a style bible, but King of Hats, Stephen Jones, and Queen of Bags, Olympia Le-Tan have exposed themselves with all their fun and foibles in two tomes.

Rizzoli has become the publisher of choice for the fashion world. But what is so often a visual feast with a scant regard for storytelling is served up in a more lavish way for what can be seen as…

The 2016 Fashion Moments I Won’t Forget

As years go, 2016 has been one of the roughest. It’s been so all-around awful, in fact, that Fuck2016 has become not just a popular hashtag, but a T-shirt—$19.99 and going fast at lookhuman.com! With slogan tees all over the runways, why didn’t a designer think of that?

Fashion, of course, has had trials of its own. New York upstarts Suno and Ohne Titel shuttered. Designers still in business worried about shoppers acclimatized to seasonal 80 percent markdowns, an unsustainable model…

The French beauty admits she isn't usually one to spend hours in the wardrobe department on the set of her film projects, but this time was different as she fell in love with the period clothing.

Beach, sun, love, and very little expense.

"Da, Da, Da, Da, Here comes the bride".

Well, that's followed by: "Da, Da, Da, Da, Here comes the bill".

I listened to Neil Roberts, founder of peer-to-peer lender Harmoney talking about "loan stories" recently.

My heart sank when he talked about a man who borrowed because all three of his daughters were getting married in the…

How the big names of luxury fell out of fashion

In vogue: Johnny Depp's daughter Lily-Rose

The Grand Palais in Paris throbbed to Donna Summer’s 1977 disco hit ‘I Feel Love’ as two models strutted down the catwalk, one in a classic black Chanel boucle tweed skirt suit, the other in the same ensemble in white.

From the neck down, they were a picture of timeless elegance – if only the sinister robot masks didn’t make them look like extras…

Neha Sharma: I’m a diehard romantic & passion is my second name

She has stars in her eyes. Yeah, the twinkle of a thousand stars. And the sparkle of a newbie, even after a smashing debut down South and a string of Bollywood films in the last decade. A week before her next release, 'Tum Bin 2', an all-heart romantic film, she sits daintily for a long chat. Behind all that petite prettiness is a girl with steely resolve, who without batting her long lashes, says, "I don't want someone else to be the God of my life." Well yes, her films haven't struck gold…

Mukhtaran Mai Saves The Day

An icon of bravery, Mukhtaran Mai didn’t look the slightest bit uncomfortable or out of place as she stepped out with a big beautiful smile on her face.

Runway theatrics overshadow an evening dedicated to fashion though Rozina Munib’s show, dedicated to Mukhtaran Mai, draws attention to a good cause.

Karachi :It’s always pleasant to see celebrities on the catwalk or singers serenading the models as they walk. It’s also fun when a fashion show has some pleasant surprises hidden…
