Kendall Jenner Reportedly Bullied Backstage at NYFW

Kendall (Jenner) is quickly making moves in the fashion industry. By now, her appearance on the runway comes as little surprise. She’s walked for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Chanel  — and her career is showing no signs of slowing down. She’s been fully embraced by some of the industry’s most influential figures, including LOVE magazine’s Katie Grand. As for her catwalk peers, well, that’s a different story. According to In Touch, Kendall got a little mean girl treatment backstage at NYFW from her fellow models who were salty about her presence.

It seems Kendall’s rise to the runway has other models, those who weren’t famous before they decided to get into fashion, a little annoyed. “The other models worked so hard to get a spot on the runway and didn’t think it was fair that she was there,” a source told the publication. The girls started taking their resentment out on Kendall, throwing shade all over the backstage area. “They started acting b****y,” the insider noted, adding that a few models even put out their cigarettes in Kendall’s drink. Ew. Also, why are they smoking backstage?

Kendall seems to be faring a little better in Milan. She posted a backstage image of herself and a fellow model this morning with the caption “you can’t sit with us.” And it’s not like Kendall’s entirely friendless in the fashion industry; she’s got buzzy models Gigi and Bella Hadid on her side as well as Ireland and Hailey Baldwin. And since her big sis is BFFs with Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci and Balmain‘s Olivier Rousteing, Kendall’s got all the allies she needs. #nonewfriends (more…)

Why is Australia Wasting $140M Worth of Clothes Each Year?

Imagine a $140 million wardrobe — It would be what dreams are made of. That’s the value of the clothes going to landfill every year in Australia, according to BusinessWaste.com.au‘s Mark Hall. All that fashion buried in the grounds works out to be around 1.2 million tons. So what are we, and retailers doing about this?

In an interview with Ragtrader, Mark explained Australia is lagging behind other countries, where you can return old or unwanted goods to shops or manufacturers for recycling. Germany’s Puma is an example, which as part of its ethical and sustainable policy can have products returned for reprocessing once its shelf life is over.

But over here, Mark says we’re still relying on charity bins and second-hand shops to get rid of our unwanted clothes. “It’s virtually unheard of in Australia to take any item back to the shop where you bought it for recycling,” he told Ragtrader.

Australians Aren’t Loving Asos Like They Used To

Asos’ Australian honeymoon is officially over. As The Sydney Morning Herald reports, the UK retailer is struggling against domestic retailers like Sportsgirl and Portmans, even with its extensive range of affordable fashion for both men and women.

Asos’ woes are thanks in no small part to the Australian dollar’s 5.3 per cent fall over the last 12 months. Price rises of around 20 per cent since launch and seemingly long delivery times of five to seven days can’t help matters, though, especially when some Aussie retailers can get goodies to their customers’ doorsteps on the very same day.

Asos shares have fallen more than 60 per cent in six months, losing 10 per cent just this Tuesday after revealing a five per cent decrease in international sales in the last three months. Weak Australian sales reportedly dragged the stats down.
