Livia Firth Calls on Consumers to Recognize the ‘Real People’ Behind Cheap Fashion



Speaking at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, a 1000-person conference on sustainability which took place last Thursday, Livia Firth called out fast fashion brands for ignoring the human cost of cheap clothing manufacturing: “If fast fashion didn’t exist, we wouldn’t need a summit in Copenhagen,” she said, according to WWD

Firth is the creative director of Eco-Age, a consultancy which helps companies develop sustainable strategies, and the founder of Green Carpet Challenge, a project which aims to bring ethical design to the red carpet. 

From WWD:

"Citing high-street retailers as key to cracking the sustainability conundrum, Firth berated them for a slovenly approach to basic human rights through the inhumane speed, bulk and price at which garments are produced…

Consumers have become adept at '[divorcing] the clothes we buy from the fact that living, breathing people make them,” meaning the key to change lies in 'reconnection and recognition that the supply chain is comprised of real people,' she said."

Cara Delevingne's Hollywood dreams are quickly coming true. Since she sprung onto the scene, the model has been very open about her silver screen aspirations. She's already had her share of acting gigs, appearing in the 2012 flick Anna Karenina. According to iMDb, she's got three more movies coming up, Kids in Love, The Face of an Angel and Tulip Fever, the latter of which was just recently announced. 

Today we learned from Deadline Hollywood that the buzzy model has been cast in Pan, an Peter Pan origin story. Delevingne will appear alongside Rooney Mara (Tiger Lilly), Hugh Jackman (Blackbeard), Amanda Seyfried (Mary), Levi Miller (Peter Pan) and Garrett Hedlund (Hook). 

It's not a major role, but anything's better than that Fendi fashion film she did last year.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is Coming to London!

After all the Facebook pleas, petitions and cries from those who couldn’t make it to the glorious exhibition at the Met Gallery in New York, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is FINALLY coming to London! What's even more exciting is that the tickets went on sale today.

The exhibition will be housed at the Victoria and Albert museum, opening March 14, 2015 and running until June 19.

Judging by the success of the exhibition in its first home at the Met, it will be worth buying up your ticket fast to see Lee McQueen’s masterpieces displayed in his home town. When it opened in New York in 2011, the original run was extended by a week and the show was the eighth most popular show in the Met's history with 661,509 visitors.

The director of the V&A, Martin Roth, was pleased to break the news yesterday. "I am thrilled to announce that the V&A will bring this wonderful exhibition to London to celebrate the extraordinary creative talent of one of the most innovative designers of recent times. Lee Alexander McQueen was brought up in London, studied here and based his globally successful McQueen fashion brand here–by staging the exhibition at the V&A it feels like we are bringing his work home."

The exhibition tells the story of McQueen's incredible work, documenting everything from the 1992 MA graduate show that was famously bought up in its entirety by Isabella Blow, to his final collection for Fall 2010 which was unfinished after his tragic death on February 11, 2010. Not often does the world truly recognise the talent of a fashion designer, but McQueen never failed to amaze and inspire. Having this incredible body of work on show in London will no doubt reinvigorate the country's admiration for the humble visionary.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is supported by American Express in partnership with Swarovski. Entry is £16 with concessions available.

The Olsen Twins Play “Mary-Kate or Ashley?” On The Ellen Show

It feels like forever since we've seen the Olsen Twins make a TV appearance. Not that we blame them. The pint-sized duo have a lot on their plate managing two successful high-end brands, The Row and Elizabeth and James. And it doesn't end there—Mary-Kate's got her wedding to Olivier Sarkozy to plan, and Ashley is busy fulfilling her duties on the board of directors for the CFDA. But the pair always have time to promote their labels! They appeared today on the Ellen DeGeneres show to chat about their new fragrances from Elizabeth and James, Nirvana Black and Nirvana White. 

Of course, no Ellen interview would be complete without its share of shenanigans. The TV host played a little game, "Mary-Kate or Ashley?" in which DeGeneres read off a series of questions, and the twins raise paddles to indicate which twin best fit the question. Here's what we found out about the Olsens:

  • Mary-Kate is the better dancer
  • Neither knows who got kissed first
  • Ashley is the funnier twin
  • They're both terrible singers

Watch the whole thing for yourself above.
