Cut Lines for April 26, 2013
The profitable, the floral and the ugly.
- Mark your calendars. On July 20, Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum is teaming up with Mount Mary to create a "Gala in the Garden," to benefit the Villa's Renaissance Garden. What's including? Fashion and flowers, of course.
- Ah, The New York Times and her trend pieces. The Gray Lady reports today that low heels are in, keeping with what Susan Joy calls, "dowager classics." The antithesis to the platform, these heels are also just plain wearable.
- Styleite has the latest on the Bangladeshi building that collapsed, killing more than 200 workers. The building housed multiple garment factories for companies like Joe Fresh and the U.K's Primark.
- By most standards, Prada had a good year. As in, 46 percent net profits. Business of Fashion attributes this to "smart management and desirable products."
- Shoe designer Brian Atwood launched a bridal collection. From uber-feminine to classic and totally impractical in between, you can see the entire collection over at Refinery29.
- In more collaboration news, four words: Lancome and Alber Elbaz. That's pretty much all you need to know to get excited. But he dishes on the details and the biz in a delightful Q&A with Style.com.
