New York Fashion Week is moving from its home in Lincoln Center and we finally have the details on where the fashion set will flock once September rolls around. IMG had confirmed two locations for New York Fashion Week, one in Midtown, the Skylight Moynihan Station at 33rd St. and the Skylight Clarkson Sq. at 550 Washington Street in SoHo.

It doesn’t come as much of a shock that these spaces would be announced as NYFW’s new home. New York Fashion Week: Men’s will be holding their shows this July in the Clarkson Sq. location, and designers have already used both spaces for shows in the past. IMG has signed a deal with the venues that span a few years, though we don’t know how long these new spots will serve as Fashion Week’s home. 

New York Fashion Week is eventually supposed to move to the Culture Shed, a new space being built in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards. Construction on the new site seems to be a bit delayed – it was expected to be finished by 2017, but some say it will take two more years than that to complete.

Well, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is off to a good start. An angry local stormed Ellery’s MBFWA 2015 opening show last night, April 12, causing quite the scene in front of the country’s most esteemed fashionistas at Eveleigh’s Carriageworks.

Kym Ellery was wrapping up her highly anticipated 20-minute show when an annoyed neighbour made his way through the VIP section, the media pit, and then onto the runway to tell Ellery who’s boss.

According to the The Sydney Morning Herald, he said, “You have no respect for the local community, the noise is way too loud, this is a disgrace.” Kym wasn’t injured, spotting the man from the end of the runway and moving aside before anything worse could happen on her big night. (more…)

The fashion world’s obsession with Pharrell continues. Woolworths is the latest brand to tap the fashionable producer to serve as style director for a collaboration focused on sustainability.

Naturally, Williams’ Bionic Yarn company, which makes yarn from discarded plastic fibers, is involved with the project. Woolworths is looking for young South African creatives, aged 15-25 to design stylish T-shirts for the collaboration, with the theme of raising awareness about the environment. The winning designs will be printed onto the sustainable tees and sold in Woolworths stores.

Pharrell’s promotion with Woolworths also extends to a concert tour. In addition to the T-shirt contest, Woolworths is working to promote education and inviting South African school singing groups to enter a competition in hopes of being able to sing with the artist on stage.

Williams is no stranger to sustainable collaborations. He previously worked with G-Star RAW, creating a collection of cool denim pieces made in conjunction with his Bionic Yarn company.

Nothing Is More Dramatic than the Promo for the Bruce Jenner Interview

SHADOWS. LOW PONYTAILS. 80S BALLAD GUITAR MUSIC. No, this isn’t a promo for a Behind the Music for Whitesnake. It’s the teaser commercial for Diane Sawyer’s big interview with Bruce Jenner, airing April 24.

Like we said, the promos are full of shadowy silhouettes of Jenner, with Sawyer looking at him with a furrowed, reporterly brow. Jenner is expected to unveil the details of his alleged transition during the broadcast, and by the looks of it Sawyer will be doing some really close listening through the whole thing. Guess there is a lot to process. 

The broadcast promises to cover “the journey, the decisions” and “the future” for Jenner. For the past few months, rumors and whispers of Jenner’s transition have been swirling, so this interview should give us answers to those burning questions that are probably none of our business anyway.

What we really mean to say is: We’ll definitely be tuning in.

Kanye West Doesn’t Care if You Think His Clothes Are Derivative

Kanye West’s outspoken nature is what helped him rise through the ranks of the fashion industry, and it is his same no holes barred, no filter attitude (and now-everlasting bond to the Kardashian family) that keeps him in the fashion news cycle. The rapper is the subject of a profile in magazine, a piece in which Kanye explains what he’s hoping to accomplish in this new chapter of his fashion career.

To West, it’s all about bringing luxury to the masses, making fast fashion high-end. It is a goal he is slowly approaching with his Adidas collaboration (though he has said before he’s not completely satisfied with the lofty price points of the collection). One criticism Kanye has consistently faced during his time designing apparel is that what he creates looks too much like the work of the established designers he likes to wear on a regular basis. 

Well, in case you were wondering Kanye West isn’t concerned whether you think his work is derivative or not. “I would like to be influenced as much as possible,” he told Jon Caramanica. “I don’t care if you can see the influence in something, as long as I made it better.”

Whether or not Kanye’s improving on the work of other designers in his own collections is a matter of opinion, but you’ve got to hand it to him: The guy’s definitely got a distinct taste in clothing.
