I’ve been saying this from day 1…that in order for the print medium to remain relevant and compete it will have to “up the anty” on more than just relevant, interesting content…design, format, different types of paperstock, etc. that is what is going to entice the reader as well. We are humans…keep our attention.
We have a new format! Listen up while we discuss a topic amongst retailers on people buying up shoes and handbags…but not the clothes. What does that mean for Fashion Week and the industry as a whole? Also, is there a savior for F-Commerce? We round up the CDFA winners, share news, highlight this week’s student fashion publication, and share upcoming events that may be in your area!
The Target “Shops” are unveiled tomorrow! Also, have you checked out the new Club Monaco website? And with the premier of the 2nd season of Sherlock, Rachel shares her discovery of Sherlockology. Ryan has some exciting event announcements, Rachel recaps an FIT lecture with Franca Sozzani, and SpeakingOfFashion is doing a book review! Listen up!
Sense of Fashion has a new brand! We review their new look and feel (now as 76 Hudson). We also discuss some fabulous new AMFI (Amsterdam Fashion Institute) student fashion magazines. Also there’s an article in Crain’s Chicago Business that gets our goat. This is Speaking Of Fashion - listen up!
Tyra Banks fired three judges on America’s Next Top Model. The controversy ensues (and our opinions are shared)! Nordstroms partners with hot e-commerce site Bonobos. And some questions have been made on Raf Simons replacing John Galliano at Dior. We say shush! (Oh yeah, and there’s some Kanye “Power” thrown in.)
Had an inebriated blast with Rachel of The Working Wardrobe, Ryan of The Bowtie Memoirs, and a healthy glass of Merlot. But on a serious note, enjoyed my talk about how the print medium is constantly re-freshing itself in order to remain relevant in a digitally infused society.
