Zendaya, Anya Taylor-Joy Honored At CFDA Fashion Awards

The annual Council of Fashion Designers of America fashion awards happened yesterday, which is an award show that honors the top designers in women and menswear and accessories. Everyone from established designers to those in fashion school get the opportunity to have their work celebrated. As a non-profit organization, the CFDA uses the award show to raise money for student scholarships and support designers during other shows, such as New York Fashion Week. Emily Blunt hosted in a tangerine Christopher John Rogers suit and was personally chosen by longtime designer and chairman, Tom Ford.

This year, two prominent young, fashionable actresses received awards for their style and their work with designers. Zendaya was awarded the Fashion Icon Award. At 25 years old, she is the youngest to receive the award and joins the ranks of other incredible recipients such as Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez. Zendaya wore a red Vera Wang ensemble with a crop top and bubble waist skirt.

For the first time, the CFDA gave out the Face of the Year Award to Anya Taylor-Joy, star of The Queen’s Gambit and global ambassador of fashion and makeup for Dior. She wore a vintage Oscar de la Renta dress with animal print gloves and hat.

Other stars to appear on the red carpet included: Ciara in Tom Ford, Emily Ratajkowski in Miu Miu, and Squid Game star HoYeon Jung in Louis Vuitton.

    The Resurgence Of Athleisure In A Post-Pandemic Era

    With months upon months of worldwide stay-at-home orders in early 2020, everyone’s daily wardrobe seemed to shift from business casual to comfy casual, with the classic quarantine uniform consisting of sweats and a sweatshirt, with the occasional change into a nice shirt for the odd Zoom meeting. However, while the Covid-19 pandemic is still happening, the importance of fashion in day-to-day life has luckily reemerged, with a clear influence of the pandemic ‘fashion’ appearing in mainstream looks now.

    New ‘Vogue World’ To Be Introduced During Fall NYFW

    The fashion industry strives to become more bold and unique every year, with Vogue now introducing what has been categorized as “a live editorial fashion show, street fair, and special surprises,” aptly called “Vogue World.” The famous magazine is celebrating their 130th anniversary this year, which means they had to go above and beyond and create an interactive experience for fashion lovers that exceeds simply watching runway shows. While New York Fashion week is being held less than a month from now, from September 9th to 14th, you’re going to want to take work off on Monday, September 12th for the Vogue World festivities.

    Estée Lauder to Buyout Tom Ford for At Least 3 Billion

    Rumors are going around in the fashion world that Tom Ford is looking to sell his namesake brand just after Bloomberg said the fashion and beauty business had appointed Goldman Sachs to find a buyer. Speculation is rising that Estée Lauder may be the leading contender to buy out the business as it already has the license for Tom Ford Beauty. Tom Ford, the company, currently designs and retails men’s and women’s wear, accessories, fragrances, beauty, and eyewear. Estée Lauder, which does not directly operate any fashion companies, could license out the ready-to-wear if it were to acquire the business.

    Dior Accused Of ‘Culturally
    Appropriating’ Chinese Skirt

    Dior is facing heavy criticism of cultural appropriation after protestors claimed the luxury fashion brand copied a classic Chinese skirt design, which dates back to the Ming Dynasty. According to the ‘New York Post’, many Chinese student protestors stood outside one of the label’s Paris stores on Avenue des Champs-Elysées.

    The Ethics Of Depop Sellers Upselling Thrift Finds

    Since vintage 70s, 90s, and 2000s looks have come back into style over the past couple years, the clothing app Depop, which lets users buy and sell their new and used clothes, has blown up as a hub for unique items that cannot be found anywhere else. However, what once began as a way for individuals to resell their old clothing or for new designers to market their original pieces has now transitioned into a comprehensive marketplace of users thrifting clothing and reselling them for quadruple the price. Based on the higher demand for vintage clothing items, thrifting has been the primary method for fashion-forward people to enhance their wardrobes, and those who don’t have access to prime thrift stores turn to Depop for thrifted items. The problem lies in the ethics of reselling items that were originally donated for lower-income individuals, and are now generating sizable incomes for privileged individuals through Depop.
