While it often seems impossible to make money in the fashion business, Forbes magazine has shown us otherwise. their recent issue profiled several fashion billionaires, including Bernard Arnault (25B), Francois Pinault ($17B), And Ralph Lauren, pictured here, (a mere $4B). "While you know the brands, the designers and the supermodels, chances are, you've never heard of the people actually running the show. Despite bankrolling the tastes of millions--and making billions doing so--their names remain largely unknown," the article says, Watch the Video: The Stylish Billionaire. ( Forbes/ JC Report)
Green" fashion has been getting lots of press lately, but what about "ethical" fashion? We all talk about how fun it is to find great style at a price, but we rarely consider what it takes to make the disposable fashion we all buy. The BBC sent 6 fashionistas to India to experience working in the rag trade. These poor kids have to pick cotton, work and sleep in a factory, and witness all the aspects of making High Street fashion. Their experiences are shocking. Watch the series, called Blood, Sweat & T-Shirts here. It's quite eye opening.
Online fashion retailer Bluefly.com has just launched "The Tailor," their new mens online shop dedicated to filling the needs of a more "sophisticated" gentleman. "“The Tailor is designed to be a resource for the man who has a keen sense of style and takes pride in his appearance, but doesn’t take himself too seriously,” said Bluefly CEO Melissa Payner. “Visitors to the site will find The Tailor to be authoritative, not pretentious. They’ll walk away feeling like an insider on how to shop for a sharp tailored look without setting foot into a store.” Visitors should expect the usual fine array of mens suits,shoes, ties, and accessories.

Love these joints they give me that old 80 feel............You are about to see more streetwear brands get into sunglasses. They will be trying to give you another option other than the Gucci or Prada frames. I have never been real big on sunglasses but I know a lot of you are. Jay-Z has been spotted rocking his. So that might mean a boost in sales!

Sometime it's not about how many pairs of shoes you have in your closet, but what type of shoes you have................These velvet slippers may look like the ultimate in WASP style, but trust us—once you get your preppy/trad look on, you’re gonna want a pair of these … These are made by Bowhill & Elliott, a british company which was established at 65 London Street, Norwich over 125 years ago. The founder of Bowhill & Elliott, Obadiah Bowhill, purchased the business from Wright & Co. in 1874. The business passed onto his son and son-in-law, Thomas Baines Elliott, at the end of the nineteenth century. Thus the partnership of Bowhill & Elliott was formed. And the family connection continues into this new century under the direction of Roger Jury, descendant of Mr. Elliott. The company has a shop from which it retails a large selection of ladies and men’s shoes including the following brands, Crockett & Jones, Grenson, Church, Cheaney, Barkers, Loake, Dexter, Mephisto, Carcavelos, HB Shoes, Gabor, Peter Kaiser, Lorbac and Rockport. At the same location there is a small factory where Bowhill and Elliott manufactures slippers and houseshoes and specializes in producing hand embroidered velvet houseshoes and making up tapestry, needlepoint or fabric into houseshoes. This is the ultimate in old world luxury. What do you think about them? Leave a comment!

Nothing like the common sneaker brand, Creative Recreation looks towards runways and high fashion around the world for inspiration. Launched in Orange County, California in 2002, Creative Recreation sought to fill a void within the footwear market.
To co-founders, Robert Nand and Rich Cofinco, there was a clear gap between unsightly athletic sneakers and stuffy dress shoes, thinking that it had been a virtually untouched market. The gap was so grand that they didn’t even feel the need to define a particular demographic. “We … (more…)
