In our Fashion Nation series, we talk to cool people about their personal style. Sam Klein Entrepreneur and Content QueenLos Angeles, California Tell me about this outfit.  The dress I’m wearing is by L.A.-based brand Rhode. I have it in, like, three or four prints because it’s so comfortable and flattering. I feel really good after I put it on and I think that’s the telltale sign of a good piece of clothing. The bag is a really fun piece by a brand called Staud. The shoes are vintage. I...
The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, or FIT, is one of the best-known fashion schools in the country. Timed to the recent reckonings that people have had with institutions and inclusivity, such as the call from black artists in Hollywood to invest in black creators, FIT students have also made calls for more inclusivity in their programs. With a petition made by Bronwyn Goldschneider, an incoming sophomore at the school, students are calling for more inclusivity in FIT fashion illustration classes. This isn't a...

There’s a scene in the 1917 film Poor Little Rich Girl when Mary Pickford, the adult actress portraying the 11-year-old title character, is punished for naughtiness by being forced to turn in her frilly dress for a suit of boys’ clothing. Standing before a mirror, she pouts at first, then sticks her hands into her pockets—and discovers what a fine, freeing, and powerful thing menswear can be. Pickford’s face radiates joy as she rises on her tiptoes; it’s a glorious moment. By then the pocket had,...
IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE, when considering the simple shapes, fresh colors, and unique proportions of the clothes by State (statethelabel.com), that raking alpaca poop is part of the line’s origin story, but it is. In 2010, Adrienne Antonson was living on an alpaca farm on Vashon Island off the coast of Seattle, when the family she was working for let her set up a little studio in the barn. She started felting alpaca wool and incorporating it into an upcycled clothing line that is still...
Face masks. They’re the latest trend. The biggest fashion must have. Everyone’s wearing them, right? When the Covid-19 epidemic first started to look like it might turn into a global pandemic, people panicked. Americans rushed to buy N-95 respirator masking in bulk, hoarding them for themselves and keeping them away from the medical professionals that needed them most. Because of this, The World Health Organization advised against using face masks in an effort to conserve them for medical professionals and those that are already sick. As the...

In our Fashion Nation series, we talk to people about their sense of style. Marisol Hernandez Lead singer of La Santa CeciliaLos Angeles, CA Tell me about this outfit.  I bought the luchador fabric in downtown L.A.
