Chanel, Gucci and luxury fashion's sustainability crossroads

The world around luxury fashion is changing. Former CEO of Chanel Maureen Chiquet put it well at the New York Times luxury conference in Versailles earlier this year: She described an inflection point, shaped by macro-economic challenges that have diminished tourist flows and luxury sales, e-commerce that has eroded the exclusivity of luxury items and the evolution of consumer desires, with new generations looking for values-driven purchases.

It is evident that rumblings of change are underway, with sustainability and social responsibility becoming key components of luxury fashion’s landscape. Indeed, at events in Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Seoul and Versailles this spring, the fashion industry has been talking about change.

Fashion Transparency Starts With Workers

D2D kick off briefing

It’s been three years since the devastating collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh, which claimed the lives of 1,134 garment workers. Despite the fact that clothing from over a dozen well-known international brands was found in the rubble, it took weeks for some companies to figure out that they even had contracts there.

The problem is that many companies don’t really know where their clothes are being made. Fashion supply chains are typically long and very complex. Some brands may work with thousands of factories at any given time, making it difficult to monitor or control working conditions throughout the supply chain.

Belgium are on fire and they're not even at their best yet

Belgium trampled Hungary 4-0 with their best performance of Euro 2016, firing on all cylinders, getting a world class performance out of their stars, and most importantly, showing that notoriously stubborn manager Marc Wilmots has the ability to learn from his mistakes and do what's best for his team. If they continue to improve at the rate they have so far, they have to be considered one of the favorites to raise the European trophy.

Can Iowa judges advertise their wedding services?

gavelX2

Should Iowa judges and magistrates be allowed to advertise their availability to perform wedding ceremonies for a fee?

Yes, but only if judges carefully avoid the appearance of using a public position to line their own pockets, the Iowa Supreme Court has ruled.

"If a judicial officer is legally authorized to perform off-hours weddings for a reasonable fee because he or she is a judicial officer, how does it amount to an abuse of the office for the officer to let the public know that," Justice Edward Mansfield wrote in the unanimous 15-page ruling.

Millennials re-ignite long dead RV market

  Millennials are emerging from their parents’ basements.

  Well, maybe not all of them but enough are venturing out and taking their close-to-nature, tech-heavy lifestyles with them to help boost the $50 billion recreational vehicle industry, RV insiders report.

  It’s called “glamping” — camping in glamorous fashion — and purchases by millennials, with an elder limit of 35, are helping re-ignite RV sales, insiders said.

  While RV sales in the US have increased seven straight years — since 2010, the year after the Great Recession ended — the growth had been slowing for three years until millennials stepped into the breach this year.

  “This market is back on fire,” Gigi Stetler, of South Florida’s RV Sales of Broward, tells The Post.

Sitter hired to watch kids steals from bride on her wedding day, deputies say

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. - It was the day Taryn Haumann had always dreamed about, marrying her soon-to-be husband Daniel, in the place she grew up and where the two had met in Colorado.

They were married over Memorial Day weekend at a rustic Highlands Ranch wedding venue.

But what she didn't know, is while she and all her guests were enjoying the reception something else was going on in the room where she had gotten ready with all of her bridesmaids.

"It's a really embarrassing situation," she said.
