Watch: The Shockingly High Costs Of Fast Fashion Panel

Earlier today, Bib + Tuck, the recently-launched online marketplace for swapping clothing, hosted a Google Hangout panel on the high costs of fast fashion.

Fashionista Editor-at-Large Lauren Sherman led the conversation; participants included Zady co-founder Soraya Darabi, journalist Elizabeth Cline (author of Overdressed: The Shockingly High Costs of Cheap Fashion) and sustainability writer Amy Dufault.

Panelists agreed that public interest in ethical fashion has surged in the wake of the Rana Plaza factory fire earlier this year, but suggested that there isn't yet a true alternative to fast fashion, one with mass reach. The conversation also touched on the dubious legitimacy of some mainstream eco-initiatives, the radical possibilities of upcycling and why we should all be optimistic about the future of sustainability. 

A YouTube video of the live panel was just posted:

ManiaMania’s Latest Collection is Morbid Exotica For Your Home

maniamania-candleAustralia’s favorite purveyors of morbid exotica are now making macabre accessories for your home. Jewelry brand ManiaMania has come out with a new capsule collection entitled ‘Curiosities,’ a small range of home goods and key chains that reek heavily of the decadence and occult vibes of their necklaces and rings.

The collection is launching just in time for Christmas, and though ManiaMania doesn’t exactly scream of Yuletide glee, the holiday provides a fantastic excuse to bejewel your mantelpiece and key sets with their new offering. The Black Dahlia Candle features a deep smoky glass hand carved with palm fronds and serpentine shapes, and an exotic Black Dahlia scent in rich black wax – providing 40 hours of illumination and a perfect centerpiece for less traditional Christmas spreads. And the one-of-a-kind Crystal Geode Bookends in mixed tones of blues, cream and brown are really the only way to display your collection of erotic fiction.

Other items in the collection include key rings with moonphase, eye and serpentine pendants and bars of soap that are cast from and resemble real quartz and peach apophyllite crystal clusters. The only downside is that they’re so pretty you won’t want to erode them in the shower.

Head to ManiaMania’s website to view the whole deliciously macabre range.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, an award which honors and provides support to emerging American designers, Vogue cut a nostalgic short clip. The video focuses the first step of the competitive awards process, and includes interviews with Anna Wintour, Vera Wang, Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, and others. 

If you like what you see, a documentary series following the 2013 awards process is making its television premiere on Ovation next Tuesday, November 12, at 10 p.m. EST. Vogue has been building up to bringing The Fashion Fund to TV for at least two years: the show launched as a series of digital webisodes on Vogue.com in 2011 and then moved over to Hulu in 2012.

For the cover of The Innovators Issue, WSJ Mag tapped Terry Richardson to photograph Gisele Bundchen with Daft Punk.

The French electronic music duo apparently makes fashion feel warm, fuzzy and loved: The faceless robot DJs previously appeared in the pages of Vogue (with Karlie Kloss) and CR Fashion Book (with Milla Javovich); the group soundtracked the Spring 2013 Saint Laurent show and lent their hit song, "Get Lucky," to the CFDA Awards for use in a promotional video. And unsurprisingly, they've already been photographed by Terry Richardson, for GQ's May Issue. But never before with Gisele! How innovative.
