N.Y.C. artist Claudia Gold, better known as Claw Money, turned her notorious ’90s graffiti fame (she was one of the few female artists bombing with the best of them) into a successful fashion line. And in 2015, she opened a retail and vintage boutique, Claw & Co., on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Now she’s launching Claw Beauty (available at clawandco.com) with 12 vibrant nail paints ($10) and five top coats ($10) – one mattifying and four color changing – with signature bags and cosmetics to...

“Her friends call her hair auburn, but her enemies call it red.” - Sylvia’s Book of the Toilet, 1881. Auburn hair has long been admired for its beauty. In the sixteenth century, Titian famously painted beautiful women with hair of a reddish hue. While in his epic Regency era poem Don Juan, Lord Byron waxed rhapsodic about dancing girls, each having: Down her white neck long floating auburn curls—(The least of which would set ten poets raving) By the Victorian era, the passion for auburn hair had reached a...

“The fondness for violets increases with time, and many women of fashion will tolerate no other fragrance.” - American Soap Journal and Manufacturing Chemist, 1895. In 1893, a woman by the name of Margaret Gainer was arrested, charged, and ultimately sentenced to thirty days imprisonment for stealing a bottle of violet perfume from a hairdresser’s shop. The hairdresser had seen her take the bottle and slip it into her pocket, but when he gave her the choice of putting the bottle back or facing the consequences, Miss...

Women of a certain age may remember the all-lady wrestling show Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling that aired from 1986 to 1989. Mixing wrestling, elaborate costumes, campy sketches, and really bad raps that announced each character, GLOW was over-the-top in every way. Now, it’s the genius inspiration for Netflix’s new Jenji Kohan– produced dramedy starring Alison Brie (premiering June 23). To prep for the series, we looked to the past for some off-the-ropes style inspo. Wanna get Gorgeous? Nab these picks to cop the ’80s punk-rock...

  What is Cultural Appropriation? Cultural appropriation is, in its simplest and most basic form, the act of an individual from a particular (usually privileged or dominant) culture adopting cultural/religious elements of a marginalized culture, insensibly. In doing so, valuable cultural practices or symbols are overly simplified, stripped of their meaning and significance, and can replicate systems of oppression. Yes, fashion can be violent too. This is most clearly articulated when a dominant or oppressive group takes from a culture that it is oppressing (ex: white people in the USA...

The lines between high fashion and street fashion are constantly reconfiguring, in part, because the male-dominated fashion industry is finally starting to see more gender balance. When women, like Sophia Banks who directed the video Making it On Time: Girls Skate for Christian Siriano, step into these roles, we see more interesting representations of women and the clothes they wear. At BUST, we love to see personal style represented in a way that showcases the many facets of women: you can have princess style and be sporty and damn...
