Introducing my new weekly roundup of all the fashion and style news you need to know. It's what I'm reading to stay on top of fashion trends - from the business side to the runway - both locally and nationally. Think I missed something? Leave it in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Neroli will celebrate its 20-year anniversary next week with a ribbon cutting ceremony in front of its new downtown location (327 East St. Paul Ave.). Stylists will participate in a "cut-a-thon," which means they'll be giving haircuts in exchange for donations to Earth Month. "The aim is to set a
Guinness World Record for most money raised for a charity by haircuts in a
24-hour period," a spokesperson for the salon said in a statement.
- Today is the last day - until 3p.m., to be exact - to donate your jeans to Stephanie Horne Boutique's Denim Drive (244 N. Broadway). Drop off a pair and in return you'll receive a $20 coupon to be used at the store.
- Gym rats and Lulu lovers get ready to gear up. The Wisconsin Athletic Club is hosting a fitness fashion show on April 25 at its North Shore location (7601 N.Port Washington Rd.). The event starts at 6 p.m., is open to the public and all proceeds will go to the March of Dimes.
- Time Magazine released its annual list of "most influential people," which included Michael Kors, Tadashi Yanai (Uniqlo) and Jenna Lyons of J Crew. I can think of a few things they have in common, but the first thing that comes to mind is their relative affordability.
- This week's edition of Net-a-Porter's new online magazine The Edit (which also has a monthly print edition) features Lauren Hutton, who decries the industry's use of too-thin models and recalls that one time she stuck up for a young Kate Moss.
- Women's Wear Daily reports that the CDFA, in collaboration with nearly 150 of its members and led by Donna Karan, is hosting an Ebay auction of designer tote bags in an effort to raise money for Haiti. The bidding starts Monday and lasts until May 2.
