Major Changes Coming to New York Fashion Week

Prepare to kiss New York Fashion Week as you know it goodbye because there are about to be major changes. We already know that the event will be moving out of Lincoln Center after the February 2015 shows, where it has been held since 2010. But the move to a new location isn’t the only thing that’s going to be different about Fashion Week come September.

Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will no longer fund the event, which currently bears the car company’s name; it will just be called New York Fashion Week. Mercedes-Benz says it will still continue to support fashionable endeavors, however, noting that it sponsors Fashion Weeks overseas.

In addition, WWD says that IMG is wrapping up acquisition talks with the folks behind competitor Made Fashion Week, which should take effect for the Spring 2016 collections. We’re unsure as to where New York Fashion Week will be held next season, as IMG is negotiating locations, but there are rumors that it could be held in a number of downtown spots. Eventually, the event is expected to move to the Culture Shed, a new location being built at Hudson Yards scheduled for completion in 2017.

Whether you’re under a lover’s sky or not, your childhood dream of one day ending up with Coyote Ugly‘s Mr “Have A Nice Day” O’ Donnell is now officially shattered. Yes, it’s been 15 years since we fell in love with Aussie hunk Adam Garcia in that post-90s chick flick, but it still hurts our hearts to say that the pure-bred, house-broken, fully-trained young stud is officially off the market. Hell no, H2O.

As reported by New Idea, the heart-throb cum Dancing with the Stars judge put a ring on his starry-eyed girlfriend Nathalia Chubin over the Christmas break, after the British beauty landed in Australia to spend some time with her main man and his family.

After waiting two long days because 30-year-old Nathalia fell ill, Adam casually suggested his girlfriend go for a stroll with him where he popped the big question in a national park overlooking Sydney Harbour.  (more…)

Following the announcement of her engagement to Sydney Swans player Lance “Buddy” Franklin late last year, model Jesinta Campbell appeared on Today this morning to share the deets on how their uniting of souls, aka the proposal, came about.

Jesinta admits that her strapping life-buddy, Buddy, didn’t do things traditionally when asking for her hand in marriage, saying, “There was no one knee.” But rest assured, the romance was very much alive, even without the age-old custom. “It was just very beautiful, the perfect little moment at a special little spot of ours,” she added.

Besides, her hubby-to-be made up for the unbruised knees with astonishing fashion know-how. When Jesinta looked down at her mammoth sparkler on the show, she doted, “He designed it all himself so I was very, very impressed.” Surprised could be a better way to describe the revelation, but, yes, impressive all the same. Well done, Buddy ol’ pal.

The Extra co-host donned a black-velvet midi dress with a modest turtleneck, long sleeves and a below-the-knee hemline, which could’ve easily swallowed her whole, if it hadn’t been for the sexy shoulder cut-outs with leather-look lining which showed off some skin.

Renee committed to the swank with statement gold earrings and delicate rings, sophisticated black pointed-toe pumps, a sleek middle-parted hairdo and the finishing touch of her wine-red nail polish. (more…)

Why Brands Should Start Catering to the Over 60 Crowd

Don’t be fooled by the grays: People over 60 are quickly wielding more and more spending power and retailers are starting to sit up and take notice. According to The Business of Fashion, the 60-plus crowd spent over $8 trillion globally in 2010 and their spending is predicted to reach $15 trillion by 2020.

In order to gain this demographic’s hard-earned dollars, however, retailers have to be willing to pay attention to their needs. We live in an admittedly youth-dominated culture and advertising tends to skew toward the younger set. There are less obvious ways to attract an older customer as well: retailers can make labels easier to read, make sure stores are well-lit and hire older workers who can better relate to shoppers of a certain age.

Retailers and brands also need to make a commitment to reaching older customers through digital engagement. Selfridges’ Creative Director Linda Hewson points to a video it created with filmmaker Kathryn Ferguson about “age not being an issue” which did better than the company anticipated. “We were really surprised about how people engaged with it. One would assume that it is more a younger population that engage with things online and engage with short films, but it just isn’t the case, as we are fast discovering!” A recent survey shows that in many countries, people up to the age of 75 are navigating the Internet. 

Brands like NARS and Marc Jacobs have used older models in advertising campaigns, so things are slowly changing. But if they want the almighty gray dollar, they need to step it up.
