NYFW officially starts Thursday but we’ll be watching early shows tomorrow as see-now, buy-now tries to prove it can succeed. This could get interesting.
Fashion is the world’s second-largest polluter thanks largely to cast-off clothing. Recycling programs such as H&M’s might be a solution but need your help.
Today we celebrate work. This is also the last day of Burning Man. Perhaps this is the time to talk about finding ways to mix the two in a NSFW way.
Millennials are killing everything Boomers and Gen-Xers enjoy. Damn kids. Didn’t we raise them better than this? No, apparently we did not.
The mere presence of luxury stores causes people to behave with less empathy towards others. Perhaps a kinder world starts by shopping somewhere else.
Changes in the very concept and approach of fashion week are coming at us almost faster than we can keep up. Nothing about this season is going to be boring
The beauty industry is as ugly as it is huge. With dangers so significant that some call for global bans on some products, how do you know what’s safe?
Everyone wants to look good. That’s why we get dressed, right? But does it really matter if we look good when we die? At least one retailer thinks so.

Photography has been my life over 30 years. We’re celebrating World Photo Day with 40 of our favorite photographs from the past two or three. More to come.

Nick Knight recently re-asserted his opinion that photography is dead. Does that mean we are no longer photographers? Of course not! We disagree with Nick.
Even those over 65 have changed how they shop. Yesterday’s retail strategies simply are not attractive to today’s Amazon customers. We have some ideas.

The UK vote to leave the European Union effectively turns the world upside down. Markets are crashing and this may be a warning for nationalists in the US.
