Gucci-Chime-For-Change

Beyonce Knowles-Carter joins Salma Hayek Pinault and Frida Gianni to launch Gucci’s global female empowerment crusade, “Chime For Change.”

The campaign will raise funds and awareness for the bettering of girls and women around the world.

“I believe that by working together we can change the course of history to ensure that girls and women are empowered to realise their potential and thrive,” said Hayek on call of urgency to the matter.

Climate For Change will also bring forth a compilation panel of advisory and expert members including A-listers like Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Jada Pinkett Smith, Francois-Henri Pinault, Gordon and Sarah Brown and Arianna Huffington.

On participating in the initiative, Beyonce said, “It’s up to us to change the statistics for women around the world. I’m honored to be in the company of women who live fearlessly and set an example for the next generation of young ladies.”

altuzarra-fall-2013-collection

 

After much deliberation, Kate Spade New York  has announced Altuzarra the winner of a full-page ad in this year’s Vogue September issue. The  CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and Kate Spade initiative was an effort to increase brand exposure and expansion through varying marketing techniques expressed in three month long designer seminars.

The designers, including Cushnie et Ochs, Robert Geller, Pamela Love and Albertus Swanepoel, were asked to present full-page concepts for Vogue as their final projects.

Yay to Altuzarra! Can’t wait to see the ad this September.

Fashion’s Night Out To Take A Break in 2013

Fashions-Night-Out-break

You read correctly. According to WWD, Fashion’s Night Out will be having a seat this coming September. However, this timeout is only specific to FNO here in NY. While the rest of the world will continue on the new Fashion Week tradition, FNO NY will be resting on the bleachers.  Seeing its biggest consumer climb in 2012, Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and NYC & Co. decided to cut out this year’s festivities in an effort to help retailers and designers focus their budgets on other endeavors aside from the big Condé Nast funded global party of the year. There were also some complaints from designers who were debuting their collections at the same time as the Fashion’s Night Out takeover.

“We are immensely proud of the program and are grateful to all of our partners in fashion and retail,” says Steven Kolb, chief executive officer of the CFDA. “In addition to giving retailers a positive boost, Fashion’s Night Out also served to highlight the incredible economic impact and the millions of jobs that the fashion industry supports.”

FNO has raised over $1.5 million for the New York City AIDS fun in the New York Community Trust.

I’ve been to every FNO NY minus 2012 since its inception. Hopefully this siesta will give all participating parties time to rethink the planning and perhaps come back with a revamped, budget-friendly version of the party in 2014. Oh FNO, you will be missed.

Sincerely,
The Fashion’s Night Out Team
