Why Diversity Is so Important to Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain Shows

Olivier Rousteing is something of an oddball in the fashion industry — for one, he is a black designer at the head of a major fashion house at just 28 years old. He’s also obsessed with celebrity. Where some may pooh-pooh his love of social media and pop stars, Rousteing embraces them. Rousteing is clearly one to go against the grain in the fashion world, and that includes speaking out on the industry’s lack of diversity. The designer told the Telegraph just how disappointing it is, referencing a model friend whom he says has reservations about working in Paris since there are two popular black models already making the rounds. “Honestly, you still count how many colours of people you have in the show?” he said. “It’s just sad. There is no other word. It’s fashion getting old. Just two black girls? In the whole city? I don’t think it would be the same with blond girls.”

For Rousteing, diversity on the runway is about more than just filling a quota of girls from various ethnicities. It’s a representation of a kind of culture that may be foreign to other fashion designers and industry cohorts, but is very real to him. “Sometimes I feel like some designers just focus on the clothes. Obviously it’s a business, but when you do a show you want to be modern – it’s not only about trying to find the fabric that no one else uses,” he said. “Being modern means having a view or a vision of what the world is today. I want to show a vision of my world, what I see and what I want to see in the future.”

Tory Burch’s Company Value Surpasses $3 Billion

While her ex-husband Chris is busy shutting down his “revenge retail” firm C. Wonder, Tory Burch’s brand is thriving. WWD reports that the designer’s label is doing better than ever thanks to some share swaps between investors, the result of which has boosted the company’s value to $3.5 billion. 

Burch’s growing value could make the company a prime candidate for a public offering, though we don’t know if that is actually in the cards for the fashion label. As recently as September, Burch made it clear that she’s satisfied with the company’s private status, at least for now. Still, people are speculating that the designer may change her mind, possibly in the near future. But until she officially makes a move, Burch will be privately raking in her billions.

Porter Celebrates One-Year Anniversary with Natalia Vodianova on Its Cover (Forum Buzz)

Porter is turning one and what better way to celebrate than by placing a supermodel on the cover? The magazine tapped Natalia Vodianova for the celebratory edition, following the likes of Gisele Bündchen, Lara Stone, Anja Rubik and Lady Gaga, who have all been Porter cover girls themselves. Photographed by Ryan McGinley, Natalia was captured surrounded by vibrant blossoms for the magazine’s Spring 2015 issue.

It should come as no surprise that our forum members are loving Porter‘s most recent installment. “It’s another gorgeous cover from Porter, I love this! So perfect for a spring cover. This magazine is really surpassing UK Vogue, ELLE, etc. Instead of them, my money goes to Porter every time now! Proper fan of what Lucy Yeomans, and her team are doing with such a new title,” raved Miss Dalloway, making it clear she’s an admirer.

“This is so gorgeous, I’m excited to see Ryan get more work. It’s also very appropriate for spring, such lovely colors. One of the best magazines at the moment for sure, they also produce amazing covers and editorials,” agreed KateTheGreatest.

Nymphaea was also a fan: “Beautiful spring cover, love the colors and Natalia peeking through the branches is mesmerizing.”

TaylorBinque added, “When you decide to do something different with Natalia, she will always deliver. This is so beautiful.”

“Echo the same sentiments as everyone else…beautiful cover. The colors are almost ironically autumnal. Really looking forward to seeing what McGinley produced with the ever dynamic Natalia,” Fiercification enthused.

SevenWeeksLater simply stated, “That’s one stunning cover,” and we couldn’t agree more!

We’ve been tipping Immy Waterhouse and Hannah Dodd for big things for a while now, and we’re pretty sure that we’ll see them further solidify their style credentials at LFW. Why’s that you ask? Well, we spotted both of the models in the front row at Burberry’s London Collections: Men show earlier this month and nothing screams Burberry muse more than a front row seat at one of its most sought-after shows. Of course, we’re taking this as a sign that they’ll be gracing Burberry’s runway at LFW, too. (more…)
