  • Mobilize Recovery Cross-Country Bus Tour Galvanizes Community, Prevents Overdoses
    Mobilize Recovery Cross-Country Bus Tour Galvanizes Community, Prevents OverdosesFifteen cities to host events in partnership with iHeartMedia, Meta, SAMHSA, Inseparable, and dozens of community partners coinciding with nationwide Mobilize Recovery Day of Service events throughout September and October 2024.

    Mobilize Recovery Cross-Country Bus Tour Galvanizes Community, Prevents Overdoses
    Mobilize Recovery Across America 2024

    Kicking off on September 20, 2024, Mobilize Recovery Across America will depart on a cross-country bus tour, stopping in 15 cities throughout September and October to support substance use and mental health recovery efforts.

    Mobilize Recovery announces its sixth annual initiative bringing together people in recovery and their allies, local and national nonprofits, private companies, policymakers, and federal agencies to celebrate recovery from substance use disorder and mental health challenges, raise public awareness, and prevent overdoses during National Addiction and Mental Health Recovery Month and throughout October 2024. 

    Kicking off from Southern California on September 20, Mobilize Recovery Across America 2024 will depart on a cross-country bus tour, stopping in 15 cities during September and October. At each stop, community members, partners, and volunteers will offer community trainings, listening sessions, overdose response support, and they will engage local policymakers and communities on issues that matter to the recovery movement. 

    Each event will be specific to the area in which it is held. Mobilize Recovery executive director Ryan Hampton states, “Building community is at the heart of the recovery movement. This tour will help center the voices, experiences, and hard work of local communities across the country who are on the frontlines of America’s addiction and mental health crisis. Each person’s recovery journey is unique and should be celebrated. Through this unifying experience, we hope to shine a light on their stories—and uplift recovery to the masses in a unique, meaningful, and moving way.”

    Examples of local activation on tour stops include: 

    • Distributing overdose prevention education, trainings, & resources (such as naloxone) at pop-up stations in local retail, commercial, & residential areas.
    • Engaging policymakers in listening sessions with residents in their hometowns.
    • Convening roundtables with local employers & businesses around topics such as mental health wellness for employees & recovery-ready workplace initiatives.
    • Engaging schools through TEDx-style talks by recognizable individuals in recovery from addiction and/or mental health challenges.
    • Empowering families through practical prevention tools & strategies offered through organizational partners & peers.
    • Connecting participants to partner resources, advocacy tools, and discussion forums.
    • Linking locally based events happening as part of Mobilize Recovery’s Day of Service with the national tour.

    Meta and iHeartMedia will renew their longstanding support for Mobilize Recovery’s mission by providing substantial promotional support, including mass-market broadcast radio, public service announcements featuring notable recording artists and personalities, and digital promotions. In addition, major support for the 2024 initiative is coming from Braeburn, Inseparable, the Masimo Foundation for Ethics, and Opioid Response Network.

    “Both Meta and iHeartMedia have been critical to the success of Mobilize Recovery—and their commitment to the recovery community is an example for other major corporations to follow. When we mainstream recovery, more people find help and more lives are saved,” said Ryan Hampton.

    “We are committed to helping connect people with resources to raise awareness about the dangers of illicit drug misuse and support individuals in recovery and their families. We’re proud to partner with Mobilize Recovery and continue our shared mission of supporting those affected,” said Neil Potts, Vice President of Trust and Safety at Meta.

    “The 2024 Mobilize Recovery initiative leverages the creativity, commitment, knowledge, and resilience of the recovery community to break stigma and celebrate the achievements of the nearly 50 million Americans in recovery from substance use and mental health conditions,” said Miriam E. Delphin-Rittmon, Ph.D., HHS Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use and the leader of SAMHSA. “The bus tour will visit communities across the country, providing lifesaving resources including training, naloxone, and importantly, hope.”

    Executive Vice President of iHeartMedia Unified Partnerships, Alexandra Cameron, said, “This award-winning recovery program has been part of a longstanding commitment, and we are thrilled to continue to elevate our partnership supporting the important mission of Mobilize Recovery. iHeartMedia delivers public education, promotes available resources to help prevent overdose and reduce stigma—telling the positive and inspiring stories of America’s recovery community. These efforts are central to our annual iHeart Recovery Month. Every year, we also invite influencers with lived experience to join us in celebrating recovery and amplify those messages, proving that recovery is real. From across the iHeartMedia universe to on the ground support and activations, iHeart Recovery Month contributes to meaningful behavior change outcomes supporting all the communities we serve. “

    “The connections between people are so important–sharing stories, supporting each other, knowing we’re all in it together,” said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Inseparable, a national nonprofit committed to advancing mental health advocacy. “We are so proud to be partners in the Mobilize Recovery bus tour as it facilitates these connections in communities across the country. This is how we come together to ensure that people have the support they need to live their best lives.”

    The 2024 Mobilize Recovery initiative is being co-chaired by Melissa Etheridge, Danny Trejo, Noah Thompson, Fitz and the Tantrums, former NBA player Chris Herren, Dr. Miriam Delphin-Rittmon (Administrator of SAMHSA), Neil Potts (VP of Trust and Safety at Meta), and Dr. Karen DeSalvo (Chief Health Officer at Google). 

    The bus tour route and local events will be announced on Facebook through Mobilize Recovery’s Facebook page on Monday, June 10th, and on their website. Individuals and community organizations interested in participating are encouraged to sign up for updates at www.mobilizerecovery.org.

    For many, the power of Mobilize Recovery is its ability to reach partners of all kinds across the country. At every stop on the bus tour, participants sign the bus in honor of their own recovery or that of a loved one, or to memorialize someone they’ve lost. By the end of the tour, the bus is covered in signatures and messages, connecting individuals in very different places, all of whom have been touched by addiction and mental health challenges.

    These participants are a diverse group, made up of advocates, creators, people in recovery and their family members, and people working on the front lines of the overdose epidemic gripping the United States. Mobilize Recovery engages them all to develop action-oriented goals that can be measured and scaled, and to empower and inspire their communities to make change. 

    In addition to cornerstone support from iHeartMedia, Meta, SAMHSA, and Inseparable, Mobilize Recovery partners with national and local organizations for substantial support and other significant participation. Some of these partners include Google, Opioid Response Network, Braeburn, Masimo Foundation for Ethics, National Council for Mental Wellbeing, Partnership to End Addiction, Young People in Recovery, Bicycle Health, Arnall Golden Gregory, Shatterproof, Behavioral Health Group, The Kennedy Forum, Foundation for Recovery, The Phoenix, The Herren Project, Truth Initiative, Hazelden Betty Ford, McShin Foundation, Aliya Health Group, Caron Foundation, Release Recovery, Discovery Institute for Addictive Disorders, CCAPP, Pew Charitable Trusts, Oxford Houses, Get Help, NAATP, and more.

    Rivers are Life Launches Partnership With Waterhaul to Provide Litter-Picking Equipment for River Cleanup Efforts

    Today, Rivers are Life is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Waterhaul, the U.K.-based organization transforming our oceans’ plastics into purposeful products that inspire action. Together, the organizations will work to promote waterway protection and exploration across the globe.

    A recent survey, conducted by SAVANTA, and commissioned by Rivers are Life, found that 59% of respondents plan to clean their local rivers in 2024. Looking to turn ambition into action, Rivers are Life and Waterhaul will create co-branded cleanup kits to help people across the globe take care of their waterways. 

    The unique cleanup kits were designed using 100% recycled materials and made durable to be repurposed and reused for years — leaving no negative impact on the environment. The cleanup kits consist of:

    • Upcycled clean up bags made from recycled sails – making every bag uniquely designed with no bag being the same. Spinnaker sails were selected, as an estimated 97% of retired sails end up in landfills.
    • 32” foldable litter picker – composed of recycled ocean plastic components (i.e. trawl nets and lines) and with recycled aluminum extruded shafts, stainless steel rivets, and 100% recycled PET string.
    • Litter picking bag hoop – made from recycled fishing gear, predominantly potting lines (rope), which is one of the most common forms of end-of-life fishing gear found on UK coastlines. 

    These thoughtfully curated kits will be used at Rivers are Life-sponsored cleanup events, such as the Baltimore Floatilla event (June 7 & 8) to raise awareness around water pollution issues in the Baltimore Harbor, as well as Trout Unlimited Expeditions in Wyoming (June 16-25; July 11-20; August 2-11) to inspire the next generation of youth to experience, take care of, and advocate for native and wild trout and salmon populations and the waters they inhabit. 

    “Rivers are Life is excited and proud to work with Waterhaul to inspire action surrounding waterway cleanup,” said Katie Horning, Director Marketing, Rivers are Life. “With these kits, we hope to empower and equip our vast network of River Heroes and partners with the tools and resources for seamless cleanup efforts.” 

    “We’re proud to be working with Rivers are Life, who will be using our litter-picking equipment to support the positive impact of their cleanups. Rivers are an essential part of our ecosystem that all lead to the ocean, so it is so important to ensure they’re free from plastic pollution!” said Kieran Hill, Head of Sales at Waterhaul. “Knowing that equipment made from fishing gear that was previously damaging our ocean is going out into the world to tackle the plastic pollution crisis is something we’re incredibly proud of.”

    Rivers are Life x Waterhaul cleanup kits are now available for online presale here. All profits from the kits are going to support river impact projects around the globe.

  • According to Latest Harris Poll Research, Americans, Especially Millennials, Navigate Their Lives by the ‘Stars’
    According to Latest Harris Poll Research, Americans, Especially Millennials, Navigate Their Lives by the ‘Stars’Latest study from The Harris Poll Thought Leadership Practice finds Americans turn to astrology for comfort, guidance, meaning – and often their next date.

    The stars may not hold your fate, but they could hold your date: The latest study from The Harris Poll Thought Leadership Practice finds most Americans believe at least somewhat in astrology – and strong majorities, especially among Millennials, say astrology literally makes or breaks their romances. 

    The findings in the “Astrology Survey” are based on a January 2024 survey of a nationally representative sample of 2,069 U.S. adults across all demographic groups: Gen Z (ages 18-26), Millennials (ages 27-42), Gen X (ages 43-58) and Boomers (ages 59 and older). 

    Among the key findings: A strong majority of Americans (85%) feel either positive or neutral about astrology, and about six in 10 (61%) agree that “astrology provides comfort in uncertain times by serving as a reassuring friend for those seeking guidance.”  

    “As people seek to try to navigate today’s implausible uncertainty and misinformation, astrology for many has become one source of trusted or at least considered advice,” said Libby Rodney, Chief Strategy Officer and Futurist at The Harris Poll. “We especially found it interesting in the realm of dating, where over half of Millennials consult the signs before going out on a date, and four in 10 have actually canceled a date due to an undesired sign.” 

    Influence on Daily Decisions 

    The Harris Poll finds Americans get guidance from the stars on a variety of decisions: especially when it comes to how to best practice self-care (53%), going official with a romantic relationship (49%), and even career advice (43%). 

    In addition, most Americans say they turn to astrology for guidance in their lives. Majorities say they have consulted or would consult the stars for self-care or health advice (59%) or relationship advice (57%), and nearly half would do so for help on life choices (44%) or career (43%). 

    Those numbers are strongest among Millennials. They are even more likely to use astrology for career advice (65%) and even more so for relationship advice (81%). About two-thirds look to astrology to help them decide whom to date (65%) or whether they should make their romantic relationship “official” (67%). 

    Astrology & Millennial Dating 

    A staggering 81% of Millennials say they have an opinion on which sign they most want to date, and nearly as many (74%) on which sign they’d least want to date. And they act on those opinions: 

    • More than six in 10 (64%) know which signs they’re most compatible with. 
    • More than half (56%) check a person’s sign before agreeing to go on a date. 
    • Almost half (45%) refuse to date certain signs. 
    • Four in 10 (40%) have actually canceled a date due to someone’s sign. 

    Millennials’ preferences, according to The Harris Poll: “Air” signs (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius) and “Fire” signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are the most popular, and Libras narrowly the most popular individual sign. Scorpios are the sign Millennials most avoid, and their element group, “Water”, also is the most avoided. Geminis may be the most polarizing sign for Millennials: They’re the third most preferred sign and the second most avoided. 

    Regardless of preferences, Millennials believe their faith in astrology pays off: Well over half of Millennials (58%) say astrology has improved their dating life and almost two-thirds (64%) say it has improved their relationships.  

    Astrology and Self-Identification 

    Virtually all (95%) Americans know their astrological sign – 29% even know their pet’s sign – and about two-thirds (65%) say their sign “is an accurate description of themselves.” 

    While fun and entertainment was the biggest reason (58%) people said they engaged with astrology, nearly a third said astrology helps them understand themselves better (31%) or is a tool for self-reflection (30%). 

    Astrology Believers vs. Skeptics 

    Half (51%) of Americans say they “believe somewhat” in astrology, finding it fun and interesting to learn about, but not all true. But nearly one in five (18%) are “total believers,” saying they identify with astrological meanings and predictions.  

    Gen Z was in one way the generation most skeptical of astrology: More than half (54%) say they “judge people who take astrology too seriously,” compared to 38% of all respondents. 

    The Harris Poll corrects a common misconception that astrology is a “girl thing”: Men are as likely as women to be “total believers” (19% men/18% women), more likely to consult astrology for guidance (40%/30%), more likely to pay for astrology (32%/26%), and pay more for it on average ($83 per month/$56 per month). 

    Astrology Versus Religion for Millennials 

    And for Millennials, astrology can even be an alternative to “traditional” religion — about a third (31%) say astrology “gives me something bigger than myself to believe in,” and most (56%) say more of their peers believe in astrology than they do in religion.  

    Willingness to Pay for Astrological Services 

    Americans’ overall belief in astrology is strong enough that people will pay – often a lot – for astrology content and services. Nearly three in 10 (29%) of Americans pay monthly for astrological content, with median spending between $20 and $49 per month – and one in six (17%) pay $100 a month or more. That trend is even stronger for Millennials, where more than half (56%) pay for astrology content. 

    • This survey by The Harris Poll was conducted online within the United States from January 12 to 14, 2024, among a nationally representative sample of 2,069 U.S. adults. This research comprises 328 Gen Z (ages 18-26), 784 Millennials (ages 27-42), 485 Gen X (ages 43-58), and 472 Boomers (ages 59 and older).

    IFAM Celebrates Two Decades of Global Folk Art

    The International Folk Art Market is pleased to announce its 20th Anniversary Market, held this year at the Railyard Park from July 11-14, 2024. Festivities commence with the free Community Celebration and Artist Procession on Wednesday, July 10, at the Railyard Water Tower. Thursday, July 11, through Sunday, July 14, the 20th Annual International Folk Art Market opens to the public; tickets are on sale at folkartmarket.org/tickets.

    Since the market’s inception in 2004, IFAM has hosted over 1,600 master folk artists from 103 countries — empowering artists and communities while serving as a catalyst to strengthen communities and promote traditional art forms. Out of this year’s 571 artist applications, the market has selected 167 artists from 51 countries. IFAM is welcoming a new country to the market this year with the inclusion of Papua New Guinea.

    “We are thrilled to highlight artists who have been with us since the beginning in our Legacy Tent, as well as showcase the way artists are creatively evolving folk art in our Innovation Tent. The market will include a dynamic roster of global artisans that deliver on our mission to honor the handmade and support the work of artisans serving as entrepreneurs and catalysts for positive social change,” said IFAM’s Executive Director, Stacey Edgar. 

    In 2023, the International Folk Art Market relocated from its longtime home on Museum Hill to the center of Santa Fe’s thriving arts district at Railyard Park. At this year’s market, attendees will experience the world’s best folk artists; enjoy global music, including Grupo TradiSon from La Habana, Cuba; and additional performances on the AMP stage, sponsored by Nusenda Credit Union; sample unique culinary experiences from international food vendors; and learn about issues affecting global artisans at the IFAM speaker series titled The Eternal Present. In celebration of the 20th edition of the International Folk Art Market, the annual speaker series takes its cue from the broad Indigenous worldview that time is cyclical and circular. The series will be held at SITE Santa Fe and the program is curated and moderated by Philip Fimmano. Community Day, sponsored by New Mexico True, will be held on Sunday, July 14. Through the generous sponsorship of the State, IFAM will offer free admission for all timed entry tickets throughout the day.  

    “We’re making it easier for all New Mexico residents and beyond to join us at the market. That’s why we’re proud to partner with the Rail Runner Express again this year. Marketgoers can ride the train operated by Rio Metro Transit by simply adding a round-trip seat from their nearest train stop directly on the IFAM ticket site. From Los Lunas to Bernalillo, you’ll arrive just steps away from the iconic market entrance at the beautiful Santa Fe Depot. Join us for a unique global experience like you’ve never seen before,” said Chairman of the IFAM Board, Hank Coleman.

    In 2024, IFAM was voted #6 on USA Today’s Reader’s Choice Award, Top 10 Art Markets in the United States. In just 20 years, Santa Fe’s International Folk Art Market has developed into the largest juried folk-art market of its kind in the world.

  • Grace Pettis to Release Anticipated New Album, Down to the Letter – 1st Single/Video Out Now
    Grace Pettis to Release Anticipated New Album, Down to the Letter – 1st Single/Video Out Now

    Award-winning singer-songwriter Grace Pettis is set to release Down To The Letter, due June 14th. Following her critically acclaimed Working Woman record, Grace Pettis’ much-anticipated sophomore MPress Records release, Down To The Letter, pulls no punches and captures the Nashville-based, Alabama-Austin-raised singer-songwriter at the peak of her songwriting powers. Chronicling the end of a long-term relationship with heartbreaking detail, the lyrics deftly toe the line between personal autobiography and universal catharsis. The record is about one woman’s journey through tough times, coming out on the other side all the more herself – vulnerable but triumphant, bruised but in possession of her own, solitary strength. The record was produced by lauded singer-songwriter-producer Mary Bragg (Natalie Price) and showcases Pettis’ rich voice, perhaps one of the most dynamic and agile of her generation. Her first single/video, “I Take Care of Me Now” premiered in Glide Magazine.

    Grounded by Pettis’ vocals and acoustic guitar, along with notable contributions from Bragg on acoustic guitar, the album also features Josh Kaler (Francis Cone, Heather Nova) on pedal steel, acoustic, and electric guitars with Owen Biddle and Jordan Perlson on electric bass and drums (respectively). Musician/producer Jon Estes (Robin Hitchcock, Rodney Crowell) contributed upright bass, cello, piano, and B-3, and Will Hawley added horns to “Joy.” With final overdubs at Bragg’s own project studio, they were able to achieve both the aching intimacy of ballads such as “Horses” and “Sobering Up,” and other candid tracks like “Rain” and “I Didn’t Break This.”

    Mary Bragg (who also produced Pettis’ debut album on MPress, 2021’s acclaimed Working Woman) was Pettis’ first choice for Down To The Letter, despite their second album calling for a markedly different approach. “I knew this album would be challenging,” says Pettis. “I was too close to these songs and the subject matter to be all that objective with things like song and production choices. But I was in good hands with Mary.” On the last day of tracking, the studio was full to the brim with Grace’s Nashville musician friends, supporting the tender “Joy,” and exuberant “I Take Care of Me Now” as a makeshift choir and then with gang vocals. Guest vocals from Mary Bragg, Robby Hecht, and Emily Scott Robinson round out this collection of songs.

  • CYNTHIA BAILEY PARTNERS WITH KINDRA TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT VAGINAL HEALTH DURING MENOPAUSE
    CYNTHIA BAILEY PARTNERS WITH KINDRA TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT VAGINAL HEALTH DURING MENOPAUSE

    NEW YORK, March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Kindra, the menopause and vaginal health brand, announces actress and model Cynthia Bailey as brand ambassador to raise awareness for menopause and vaginal wellness by heightening the conversation around the sexual health of women at every age. As long-term champions for breaking down stigmas around women’s health, Bailey and Kindra share a vision to increase conversations around the vast spectrum of needs as it relates to a woman’s sexual health. Vaginas have no expiration date, and Kindra’s array of care, solutions, and services cater to the needs of vaginal health and sexual wellness.

    “Women’s health is notoriously ignored outside of puberty and fertility. We believe in the importance of being upfront about our changing bodies and Cynthia has done exactly that by sharing her own personal journey over the years,” said Catherine Balsam-Schwaber, Kindra founder and CEO. “At Kindra we are unwaveringly dedicated to providing meticulously researched, scientifically-backed suite of medical-grade solutions that address the intricate changes caused by shifting hormones”

    Kindra is dedicated to the well-being of vaginas. Whether it’s embracing the transitions of menopause, tackling contraceptive dryness, or navigating postpartum challenges, Kindra provides women and their healthcare practitioners with clinically-backed, trusted solutions and educational resources on vaginal health and sexual wellness. As a brand ambassador to Kindra, Bailey will be sharing content on her social media channels and in paid advertisements to spark the conversation about women’s vaginal health and sexual wellness at any age. Consumers can use promo code “CYNTHIA” to save 15% on Kindra products. Bailey’s favorite products include the Daily V System, V Hydration & Relief Duo, Soothe Bath Soak, and Say More Conversation Cards, which are highlighted at https://ourkindra.com/pages/cynthia-bailey-partnership.

    “Shortly, after celebrating my 50th birthday, I started to notice changes within my body that I had never experienced before,” said Cynthia Bailey, actress, model, and Kindra brand ambassador. “My symptoms included hot/cold flashes, weight gain, mood swings, fatigue, vaginal dryness, loss of sex drive, and so much more. It took me a few years to figure out exactly what was happening to my body, and after doing my research about menopause, I realized that what I was going through was not uncommon. I discovered alarming statistics that about 75% of women facing menopause do not undergo clinical treatment. This experience has not only allowed me to learn more about my body but has encouraged me to clear up the misconceptions about menopause in order for all women to continue to live their best lives.  As a woman who loves supporting other women, I think that this is a conversation that should be had out loud with absolutely no shame. I am so excited to partner with Kindra to use my voice and my platform to educate women who are going through menopause while also making them feel loved and supported.”

    Kindra offers a collection of products with clean ingredients that provide symptom relief for dryness, irritation, and shifting pH, such as their innovative Daily V System, Daily Vaginal Lotion, V Relief Serum, Soothe Bath Soak, and Core Supplement. These products are formulated to help women feel comfortable and confident in their skin, no matter their age or stage of life.

    Bering Select Announces Pet Food Solution for the Salmon Oil ShortageHealthy, Sustainable Alaskan Cod Liver Oil for Pet Food

    • Cod liver oil contains healthy omega-3 fats for dogs and cats
    • Alaskan cod liver oil is abundant and sustainable
    • Salmon oil supply is unstable and ingredients are often inauthentic 

    Bering Select, manufacturers of wild-caught Alaskan cod liver and salmon-derived omega-3 ingredients, have announced the launch of cod liver oil designed to optimize the health benefits for dogs, cats and horses. This premium cod liver oil is Marine Stewardship Council Certified sustainable and Non-GMO Project Verified.

    In recent years, the supply of wild-caught Alaskan salmon has been very erratic. Company president Joel Watson stated, “I have been fishing the Bering Sea for many years, and the supply and price of salmon oil has become very unstable. Cod liver oil offers a much more reliable and sustainable option for pet products.”

    Bering Select has a direct relationship with the fishing operations that harvest cod in the Bering Sea. Cod liver oil manufacturing is conducted at their custom-built processing facility in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. According to Watson, “We have catch to product control of our supply chain, so we know exactly where our raw material comes from and how it is processed. Our omegas are also Orivo Species Certified; this is important because there is a significant amount of ingredients being sold that are of suspect origin.”

    Bering Select Alaskan cod liver oil is available as finished products or in bulk drums.

It’s about bridal fashion that honors marriage traditions while boldly stepping into the future.Under the leadership of Justin Warshaw, the Verses in Contrast campaign aims to rejuvenate and reframe the concept of marriage, making it relevant and cool to today’s generation. It’s about bridal fashion that honors marriage traditions while boldly stepping into the future. Justin Alexander Signature is celebrating the harmonious blend of traditional, timeless bridal gowns with modern innovation. 

    Justin Warshaw and Milan-based graffiti artist, Sexsdreams, or Gioele Corradengo, are bridging the gap between the world of bridal and the world of street art. With Sexsdreams vibrant, raw energy that brings the streets of Milan to life, this bridal collaboration will transform timeless elegance into contemporary edge. 

    The bridal industry is considered traditional and conservative  I have always sought out ways to express my spirit and interests through each of the collections. Verses in Contrasts allowed me to dig deeper. As a child I was influenced by Hip Hop culture, and as a New Yorker for 15 years, I was influenced by street culture and the arts, Justin Warshaw said. I was captivated by Gioeles work and loved the idea of collaborating and introducing something out of the box and unexpected.

    Making history during Milan Bridal Fashion Week, Justin Alexander Signature and Sexsdreams, debuts a new perspective on the way bridal proves its righteousness of marriage traditions in a reflection of timeless essence of love through the lens of artistry. This campaign proves to be bold, creative, and modern, and offers a new take on bridal fashion that honors the past while audaciously stepping into the future. 

    This collaboration is great for both the bridal and art community because it is a cultural mix between two things that are so different and something that people have never seen before, Sexsdreams says. Im so happy to be working with Justin Alexander Signature on this incredible experience. I have discovered a new facet of my art and fell in love with these white garments which for me were a canvas to paint my emotions.

    For the first time in bridal history, Sexsdreams had blended graffiti art and bridal fashion, turning the traditional wedding dress into a dynamic canvas before our eyes. It came as a big surprise to the entire audience, and it was great to present all these dresses together with the juxtaposition of this art form and bridal dresses, Warshaw said.

    Justin Alexander Signature Collection Description:

    Verses in Contrast is an encapsulation of dreams, inspired by love and beauty. Each gown tells a unique story, capturing modern romance and contemporary beauty. From the excellence in tailoring through modern seaming, structured corsets, and flattering ruching to the statement details like pearl accents and exposed boning and to the floral artistry illustrated with brocades, oversized rosettes, and 3D florals, these gowns are art at its finest with unexpected elements that excite and energize. Our brides are the canvas upon which dreams are painted, and our gowns are the brushstrokes that bring those dreams to life.

    Collection Inspiration: In the quiet dawn of our forever day, Where vows are whispered, love finds its way. Beneath the arch of dreams, we stand, Two hearts entwined, hand in hand.

    Through the tapestry of time, we weave, A story of love, so pure, so deep. With every beat, our hearts align, In this dance of souls, forever entwined.

    In laughter and in silent tears, In all our triumphs and our fears, I promise to stand by your side, In every ebb, in every tide. Through sunlit days and moonlit nights, Well navigate lifes grand, unchartered heights.

    Your eyes, my haven, sparkling and bright, Guiding me through the darkest night. With you, my love, my dearest friend, Our journey, a tale with no end. 

    I created this poem with AI and reworked it to match a direction I had in mind. It was my intention to create romantic wedding vows that create a juxtaposition with the seasons chosen art form, graffiti. Look out for how we infused graffiti in creative ways on the new collections gowns and accessories. – Justin Warshaw, CEO and Creative Directois celebrating the harmonious blend of traditional, timeless bridal gowns with modern innovation.

    Ponti fra continenti: i nuovi voli Shenzhen-Milano di Hainan Airlines incrementano gli scambi nella Fashion Week

    SHENZHEN, 28 marzo 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Nell’ambito di un evento che crea un ponte tra continenti e culture, Hainan Airlines è stata protagonista della Shenzhen-Milan Bi-City Fashion Week, tenutasi nel dinamico contesto urbano di Shenzhen dal 19 al 22 marzo. La compagnia aerea, nota per la sua capacità di connettività globale, si è unita a oltre 20 tra le più rinomate case di moda italiane per offrire un mix eclettico di sfilate internazionali, esposizioni interculturali, vetrine concorrenziali, esperienze culinarie all’avanguardia e forum tematici. Un’iniziativa che ha offerto agli intenditori sartoriali provenienti da ogni parte del mondo un viaggio ineguagliabile e memorabile nel mondo della moda.

    La storia delle relazioni Cina-Italia, ricca di secoli di scambi culturali fin dai tempi di Marco Polo, è una testimonianza di amicizia duratura e di rispetto reciproco. L’instaurazione di rapporti diplomatici nel 1970 ha solo approfondito i legami economici e culturali tra le due nazioni, ma costituisce anche una pietra miliare per la continua evoluzione e il consolidamento delle loro relazioni bilaterali.

    Pacsun Celebrates Anniversary on Roblox with Slick Rick Collaboration and Exclusive Merchandise

    The Fashion Retailer’s Latest Innovation on Pacsun Los Angeles Tycoon Features the Music Icon for an Enhanced User Experience with a New Collection of Digital and Physical Items 

    LOS ANGELES, March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Pacsun Los Angeles Tycoon on Roblox, Pacsun has partnered with music icon and Hip-Hop pioneer, Slick Rick, to offer its community an exclusive virtual experience. Known for his legendary storytelling and fashion sense, Slick Rick brings his unique flair to the immersive experience, uniting the legacy of Hip Hop with the modern metaverse.

    “Collaborating with Roblox and Pacsun is a true honor. Together, we’re bridging generations, telling stories, pushing boundaries, and creating a vibrant virtual world where music intersects with technology, AI, and fashion. It’s a groundbreaking partnership that embodies the spirit of innovation and creativity that hip hop has always championed and a testament to the lasting impact and evolution of the culture,” said Slick Rick.

    “Our digital community has been instrumental in shaping our presence on Roblox, and we wanted to bring them something special to celebrate the inaugural anniversary of Pacsun Los Angeles Tycoon,” said Richard Cox, VP of Men’s and Global Partnerships at Pacsun. “By integrating one of our fundamental pillars – music – into the fabric of our celebration and teaming up with a multi platinum artist Slick Rick, an icon synonymous with music, culture and fashion, we’re delivering a fresh and exciting experience inside the virtual world and beyond.”

    In this immersive collaboration, users have the opportunity to interact with Slick Rick’s 3-D NPC digital avatar to earn exclusive digital items and rewards inspired by his iconic accessories. From a crown to an eye patch and a flying saucer watch, users can enhance their in-experience look and customize their avatars with Slick Rick’s signature style.

    In addition to the virtual experience, Pacsun and Slick Rick co-created a four-piece collection of limited-edition merchandise, giving users access to real-life clothing from the collaboration at Pacsun stores and online, building on the brand’s previous strides to integrate in-store shopping elements into its virtual offerings. The collection builds on the latest digital expression trends reflected in Roblox’s research where the majority of Gen Z say they are likely to consider a popular brand in the physical world once they try on or wear their item on their avatars virtually and 43% looking for fashion brands to offer “twinning” items they can wear both on their physical selves and their avatars.

    In the ever-evolving landscape of Roblox, Pacsun has proven to be a fashion trailblazer, experiencing phenomenal growth by merging fashion, technology, and community, with a large community of over 60K+ monthly active users and 11M+ visits overall to its highly successful Pacsun Los Angeles Tycoon, an experience that pays tribute to Pacsun’s Southern California roots and aligns with the platform’s most popular and successful genre. The collaboration with Slick Rick serves as a catalyst for Pacsun’s exponential growth on Roblox, showcasing the brand’s ability to leverage the power of the platform to showcase its identity and commemorate significant cultural moments and figures in innovative ways. Pacsun remains committed to bridging the gap between the virtual and physical worlds, offering users an experience that reflects the spirit and creativity of collaboration, demonstrating its forward-thinking approach and ability to adapt.

    Within Roblox’s top 2,500 experiences, Pacsun stands out as a benchmark for daily active users, new user acquisitions, and user engagement, surpassing the average among branded experiences on the platform and user expectations, while captivating the community with its unique and enticing virtual content.

  • 5W Consumer Culture Report Reveals Rising Interest in Spending on Travel and Experiences
    5W Consumer Culture Report Reveals Rising Interest in Spending on Travel and Experiences

    NEW YORK, March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — 5WPR, one of the largest independently owned PR firms in the U.S., reveals in its latest consumer culture report data that indicates a rising consumer interest in splurging on travel and experiences this year and responses that suggest consumers plan to spend most of their disposable income to support their splurge behavior in this category. 

    Travel and experiences rank as the third most splurge-worthy category for consumers in 2024 (45%), with a notable 7% increase over last year.  

    Consumers under 44 years old are the demographic the most likely to plan on splurging when spending in this category, with 35 to 44-year-olds leading the way (58%) followed by 25 to 34-year-olds (54%). The youngest consumers, aged 16 to 24, are close to teetering into the majority looking to splurge as well, with 49% of consumers from this generation responding they tend to splurge on travel and experiences. 

    “Travel and experiences are big-ticket items, so it’s not surprising for consumers to be looking to save when and where they can,” said 5WPR Co-CEO, Dara A. Busch. “This year’s noticeable increase in their interest to splurge, especially from younger generations who are just coming into their spending power and distributing their income across multiple industries, speaks to the value they’re seeing in travel and experiences. And, for companies in the space, this perception of value comes directly from brand messaging.” 

    When shifting their attention to overall spending, consumers ranked travel and experiences as the third category where they spent most of their disposable income in 2023 (30%). When asked to predict their 2024 spending, the consumers ranked the category as the first, overall, where they believe they will spend most of their income (41%). 

    Consumers under the age of 34 are those who report they believe they are likely to spend most of their income this year on travel and experiences.  

    “It’s the brand’s job to turn wanderlust into a booked trip or experience. Despite predictions, plans change, and consumers often don’t end up allocating as much of their income as anticipated, particularly given the challenge of selling something seemingly intangible,” added Busch, “To remain a priority to consumers and their wallets, targeted communication that emphasizes the industry’s value is essential to mainlining its priority status in consumer spending.” 

    The research was conducted by Censuswide, an independent market research consultancy, with a nationally representative sample of 2,005 US consumers between the 28th and 30th of November 2023. Censuswide is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by and employs members of the Market Research Society. All survey panelists are double opted-in, in line with the MRS code of conduct and ESOMAR standards.

  • Yiwugo Embraces Surge in Demand for Chinese Trendy Products: Hanfu & Handcrafted Beads in Vogue
    Yiwugo Embraces Surge in Demand for Chinese Trendy Products: Hanfu & Handcrafted Beads in Vogue

    YIWU, China, March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Yiwugo.com, the official website of the Yiwu Commodity Market, is the largest commodity wholesale market in the world. In recent years, there has been a remarkable resurgence in the popularity of Hanfu, the traditional attire of the Chinese nation, particularly among young consumers in China. This revival has sparked a corresponding surge in Chinese retro aesthetics, exerting a significant influence on the accessory industry. Consequently, we are witnessing the widespread adoption of pearl jewelry, intricate hairpins, and vintage Chinese motifs in both fashion and accessory trends. The act of wearing Hanfu, styling hair into traditional buns, and embellishing oneself with elegant hairpins, alongside wearing horse-faced dresses, has emerged as a captivating fashion statement among the youth. These stylish ensembles are increasingly visible in various renowned landscapes, such as mountains, rivers, ancient temples, and pagodas, where young people engage in prayers and blessings. This cultural phenomenon is intricately linked with the Confucian principle of “doing one’s best and accepting fate,” as young individuals actively pursue their aspirations while embracing a “lying flat” attitude. Through this unique approach, they are reshaping perceptions of “cultural confidence”. Moreover, it is noteworthy that the popularity of traditional Chinese-style products extends far beyond national borders, gaining increasing recognition and admiration worldwide.

    Based on the big data collected from the Yiwugo platform, it is evident that from December 2023 to March 2024, keywords such as bracelets, bangles, and wrist beads have consistently maintained a prominent position in terms of popularity. A closer examination of the specific order details reveals a significant surge in the sales of Chinese hairpins and bracelets. Furthermore, there has been a noticeable uptick in orders for Chinese clothing and traditional-style apparel, including national-themed fashion. A substantial portion of these orders involves foreign trade.

    Lou Huidong has been running Hunian Jewelry for more than six years now. His venture began with a genuine passion for traditional attire, motivating him to assemble like-minded colleagues from the jewelry industry. Together, they embarked on crafting a collection of retro-inspired bracelets, bangles, and wooden bead bracelets, infused with elements of national trend design. Reflecting on this journey, Lou Huidong remarked, “The recent surge in popularity over the past two years stands in stark contrast to the lack of interest in previous years.”

    Hunian Jewelry’s designs incorporate a rich array of elements deeply rooted in Chinese culture. Symbolic motifs such as the revered “lotus flower” from Buddhism, the sacred “gourd” from Taoism, and vibrant features like tassels, auspicious knots, and the “lu” symbol are prominently featured. When combined with bohemian-inspired accessories, these elements forge a truly distinctive and captivating “New Chinese Style” of jewelry. This fusion of vintage aesthetics and unique cultural elements seamlessly integrates into daily wear, enabling individuals to express themselves authentically through their attire and accessories. Setting itself apart from mainstream mass-produced items, Hunian Jewelry stands as a beacon of individuality, often prompting inquiries from friends about where to purchase these distinctive pieces online. Its design caters to the younger generation’s desire for self-expression through clothing and accessories.

    In 2021, Hunian Jewelry unveiled a vintage-style silver bangle incorporating elements of tassels and lotus flowers. This stunning piece is meticulously engraved with scriptures and embellished with a combination of amber and jade, emanating an elegant and unique allure. Despite its higher production costs, the bangle has sustained its popularity even after being on the market for over three years, boasting an annual sales revenue of more than 200,000 yuan.

    Distinguishing itself from Hunian Jewelry’s specialization in Chinese-style retro accessories, YiRan Jewelry, led by its owner Liu Fang, has been dedicated to crafting hair clips and related products for over a decade. In 2022, Liu Fang expanded her business by establishing a factory-direct store and introducing a captivating collection of antique-inspired hairpins and hair clips. These products have not only gained popularity in the domestic market but also sparked a wave of enthusiasm abroad, including in Portugal.

    Keeping pace with the prevailing trend of fashionable Chinese New Year greetings attire and Chinese-style winter clothing, YiRan Jewelry introduced an exquisite collection of red velvet hairpins and hair clips. Adorned with charming details such as roses, butterflies, and plum blossoms, these accessories quickly captured the market’s attention. Within a short span of two to three months, YiRan Jewelry successfully sold over 60,000 sets of these captivating products.

    Liu Fang found herself even more surprised by the unexpected success of a set of seven antique-style hair clips, featuring elements such as lily of the valley, butterflies, and wheat spikes, which the company developed in March 2023 to capitalize on the growing trend of Chinese cultural influence. Adorned with exquisite diamond embellishments and crafted using exceptional electroplating techniques, these hair clips quickly became a sensation in the Portuguese market. This led to customers both from home and abroad eager to secure their orders, resulting in sales of over 100,000 sets within a year. To ensure the quality of the product craftsmanship, they have frequently experienced stock shortages, with shelves swiftly being emptied upon restocking.

    Liu Fang noted that she has been able to reach an increasing number of new customers through Yiwugo since last year, especially those interested in Chinese-style accessories. The company is actively dedicated to researching and developing new products to meet this growing demand. Just one day before the interview, Hunian Jewelry unveiled its latest creation, the “Nan Hong + Gourd Amber” bracelet, which received customer orders within its first day of availability. Looking ahead, the company’s focus will be on launching new products exclusively on the Yiwugo platform, aiming to attract more like-minded customers who share a passion for Chinese-style accessories.

    The owner of Meimei Clothing, with over 20 years of experience in Chinese-style fashion, also shared her perspective on the rising popularity of New Chinese-style fashion. She revealed that in recent years, there has been a notable surge in popularity for Chinese-style clothing, and one of her clients from Shanghai even managed to sell Chinese-style garments in the American market. Due to her busy schedule, she confessed that she hasn’t had the time to complete the sample garments for the upcoming spring season. However, her anticipation for this year’s market prospects remains unwavering.

    ASSIGNMENTS Autumn/Winter 2024 Collection ACT II

    ASSIGNMENTS draws inspiration for its 2024 autumn-winter collection from the captivating second act of the ballet “Giselle”. The collection pays homage to the ghostly figure of Giselle, entangled in the delicate balance between life and death, love and hatred, revenge and forgiveness.

    The 24AW collection contrasts sharply with the leisurely journey along the sunny Amalfi Coast of the previous season, unfolding a poetic exploration that delves into the intricate complexities of human emotions and embarks on a profound journey of love, betrayal, and redemption.

    The essence of ASSIGNMENTS craftsmanship is embodied in the subtle interplay between the brand’s signature pleating technique and sheer, transparent fabrics. Soft, delicate tailoring seamlessly merges from ghostly whites to serene greys and rich russets, creating a nuanced and timeless palette. The ethereal sheerness evokes a dreamlike reverie, gentle yet mysterious.

    CPLUS SERIES FW24 Collection The Appearance of Time


    Time, as universally acknowledged, is an invaluable treasure bestowed upon each of us. 

    Yet, do we truly comprehend its essence and its tangible manifestation?

    Theologian St. Augustine of Canterbury posited that time, much like the trajectory of a stars journey, manifests in our world through its unpredictable transformations. To perceive such manifestations is to engage in contemplation of time, an endeavor that doesnt necessitate deep reflection or analysis. After all, the appearance of time subtly infuses every facet of our existence. It might manifest as a beam bridging past and future, as a cycle marked by the rhythmic alternation of day and night and the ebb and flow of seasons, or as a complex lattice interwoven between parallel dimensions of time and space. It could be as minute as a grain of sand in an hourglass, a star vaulting across the sky, or a drop of wax dwindling on a candle.

    Does times visage then, ever wane?

    Decidedly not.

    Even if a day were to come when a pulsar engulfs the Earth, the appearance of time would persist, unwavering.

    Time, transcending all, permeates every corner and molds into various forms, this is the observation at the heart of the CPLUS SERIES Fall/Winter 2024 collection. Named The Appearance of Time, this collection is a crafted and tailored homage to the tangible representation of times abstractness.

    This season, designer CT Liu draws upon the brands heritage and a nuanced palette of colors and textures, seeking to capture todays woman multifaceted nature. Reflecting times diverse manifestations, he envisions her as a multi-faceted beauty, adept at metamorphosing from a corporate role in a high-rise by day to a techno girl on the dance floor by night. Her fashion defies conventional judgments.

    We live, we feel, we dream, and based on our whims, we choose between a leather coat or a denim jacket. Washed twill jeans, asymmetrically stitched garments, vintage prints, and textured knit fabrics are collaged, pleated, and deconstructed, imbued with a touch of subculture, crafting an aesthetic of resilience, coolness, and ease. The collection resonates with a sense of 90s nostalgia and connects with the punk and grunge movements, hardcore, and street cultures that defined the eras countercultural zeitgeist.

    With this collection, CT Liu endeavors to delve into the metaphor of time as a web. Throughout the collection, he weaves countless beads within mesh fabrics, not only to craft celestial glimmers but also to embody the complex interconnectivity of moments and memories. With this motif, he symbolizes the interconnected nature of our experiences, where each moment is a nexus in the vast web of time, shimmering with potential and vibrancy. The collection invites us to reflect on the multifaceted dimensions of time, encouraging a profound appreciation for its pervasive influence and eternal beauty.

    “Chaos in Order” explores the beauty of disorder 

    24Fashion TV FINAL 1711915637 jpg

    Chn Sifn’s Autumn/Winter 2024 Collection Embodies the Essence of “Disorder,” Intending to Convey a Timidly Explosive Burst Hidden Beneath Rationality and Restraint.

    Misplaced pockets resembling brooches delicately adorn shoulders, while intermittent bursts of red disrupt the serene facade of formality, as meticulously crafted garments are juxtaposed with withering red patent leather belts. This season, the brand incorporates elements of uniforms and formalwear, symbolizing a certain order and regulation.

    Above and beyond the craftsmanship, Chn Sifn approaches these garments with an almost meticulous attitude, resulting in a visual presentation that exudes an air of calm and restraint.

    “Red” Serves as the Unifying Color Throughout the Show, with Chn Sifn Describing it as “Sensually Seductive.” It Resembles an Emotion, akin to a Force Waiting to be Unleashed, gradually escalating like an increase in entropy, slowly spiraling out of control before ultimately being released.

    In Sifan’s societal context, the definition of “masculinity” remains confined within binary oppositions. However, Chn Sifn’s collection this season serves as an ode to genuine humanity, celebrating the warm and fluid qualities of human nature, as well as the contradictions within “masculinity.” The collection presents an aesthetic that blends opposites such as “rationality” and “emotionality,” “delicacy” and “roughness,” “fragility” and “strength,” showcasing the coexistence of chaos and tranquility.

    Le Fame AW2024 Ready-to-wear Fashion Show

    Every piece embodies modernity, which pervades everywhere. This journey begins with Blossom Shanghai, enriched by the full bloom of Shanghai style.

    On the evening of March 25th, 2024, at 7 PM, Le Fame unveiled its Autumn Winter Ready-to-Wear collection at HALL RED, Taiping Lake in Shanghai Xintiandi. This event marked the opening show of Shanghai Fashion Week, presenting the Modern Shanghai Trilogy.

    During the vibrant 1920s, modern women showcased their intelligence and emotion, pursued their dreams, and observed the blossoming of life amidst the eras tumultuous waves. This season, Le Fame enhances the Shanghai womens clothing style, imbued with history, complexity, and myth, reviving the oriental age and exhibiting the exceptional charm of contemporary Shanghai style. The brand honors the monochromatic runway shows of the 1990s, merging them with the dual-frame curtains typical of Art Deco architecture. Models appeared sequentially, displaying fashion in individual frames. This approach deconstructs new Chinese aesthetics through a multifaceted design that blends style with art, capturing the elegant fusion of Chinese and Western elements.

    Le Fame has collaborated once more with independent designer Zhong Zixin to redefine the womens profile in three chapters: Shanghai Style Vanity Fair, Shanghai Style Haunting Crush, and Shanghai Style Neo- Chinese.

    Vanity Fair emerges with black and white as its primary colors, creating a tranquil ambiance for both day and night, inside and out. Velvet and suit fabrics are luxuriously elegant without being gaudy; bows and ostrich feathers combine dynamically, adorning the garments freely and presenting the century-old, prosperous Shanghai style in an elegant and serene manner.

    Haunting Crush presents Chinese satin that weaves ultimate elegance. The X-shaped silhouette conveys grace and distinction, while lace and pearls add a touch of romance. Bright and lively, it evokes the enchanting world of oriental Rococo.

    In the new era, working women radiate resilience and energy. Deconstructed suits exhibit a capable style, and herringbone fabric is intricately woven, with sequins and ostrich feathers adding creative flair. This portrays the urban womans charming and delicate nature in a balanced manner, crafting diverse settings for free and practical attire.

    Accessories encapsulate the essence of contemporary Shanghai womens styles. Le Fame collaborates with YVMIN, drawing inspiration from roses and the essence and materials of vintage jewelry from the 1920s and 1930s, rejuvenating Retro through modern design. The brand-new bag collection pays homage to and reinterprets the iconic Shanghai Brand handbag by capturing its essence and incorporating those memories into more fashionable and refined details.

    Yang Ying, Yang Chaoyue, Hu Lianxin, Xu Jiaqi, Yan Yikuan and Du Ruoxi attended the Show, alongside hundreds of fashion editors, bloggers and brand friends.

    RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A RELAXING VACATION

    It is officially spring, which means it is the perfect time to get away.

    PARADISE DESTINATION

    The twin paradises of Nassau and Paradise Island are the perfect spring vacation spots with white sandy beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters and an average of 300 sunny days a year.

    Podcast Powerhouse: Evergreen Acquires Converge Podcast NetworkEvergreen Podcasts Broadens Scope, Brings Faith-Based and Family-Friendly Shows Through Converge Acquisition

    Evergreen Podcasts (Evergreen), one of the world’s largest independent podcast networks, is proud to announce its latest milestone acquisition of Converge Podcast Network (Converge), a premier collection of family-friendly and faith-based podcasts. This move bolsters Evergreen’s commitment to providing inclusive, multifaceted, and enriching content for listeners from all walks of life. 

    Evergreen continues its trajectory of growth with the acquisition of Converge, marking the fifth and largest acquisition since August 2023. Over this period, Evergreen’s monthly downloads have surged by an impressive 106%, underscoring the company’s strategic expansion in the podcast industry.

    “Even amidst the whirlwind of recent months, we’re genuinely excited and deeply honored to welcome Converge Podcast Network into the Evergreen family,” exclaimed Michael DeAloia, CEO of Evergreen Podcasts. “We aim to cultivate an inviting and inclusive space for both listeners and podcasters, nurturing authentic connections, fostering personal development, and amplifying voices. The content of Converge Podcast Network harmonizes seamlessly with our overarching vision.”

    Converge Podcast Network is a mission-driven community of unique voices with surprising perspectives. Among the lineup is Theology in the Raw by Preston Sprinkle, a thought-provoking platform that stands out for exploring theological and cultural issues through curious conversations, often with individuals holding opposing views. The Pour Over Podcast informs Christians on worldly events while maintaining a solid spiritual foundation. And shows like Hearing Jesus and Hearing Jesus for Kids, both hosted by Rachael Groll, provide spiritual encouragement to different age groups, while Leadership Lean In with Chad Veach of Zoe Church LA provides practical leadership insights rooted in faith. With a small group of unique voices on rare subjects, Converge has garnered a loyal following, collectively amassing over a million downloads each month.

    Casey Helmick of Content Capital, the selling partner in the acquisition, is pivotal in ensuring ongoing growth and success for Converge. With his wealth of expertise and guidance, Evergreen is strategically positioned to leverage this partnership to its fullest potential, propelling Converge Podcast Network to new heights within the podcasting industry.

    “In 2018, we had a core belief that the family-friendly and faith-based podcast content needed a major shake-up,” noted Helmick. “We started Converge to be a home to the many creators and consumers who were asking themselves, ‘How does my spirituality and faith converge with my day-to-day life?’ Our passion continues into this next phase under Evergreen expertise and leadership, and we hope to reach millions more with inspiring, family-friendly content that touches on life’s most important topics.”

    Evergreen is devoted to expanding the network by seeking shows that align with the mission of Converge Podcast Network and collaborating with Content Capital to drive growth. As part of this expansion, Evergreen’s The Homemaker’s Club podcast will transition to Converge, marking the first of many new shows to join the network.

    “We see tremendous potential in Converge,” noted DeAloia. “With Evergreen’s support, we anticipate Converge reaching the same scale within the next 24 months while retaining its distinct brand identity and commitment to its audience.”

    Converge will operate as a standalone brand within the Evergreen ethos, benefiting from the company’s robust platform, which includes account management, sales, and marketing support. Evergreen will utilize its expertise in digital media to elevate the Converge website, providing users with an immersive browsing experience. Additionally, Evergreen will collaborate closely with each show’s marketing and content creation communities, facilitating connections with relevant advertisers.

  • Achieving Health and Wellness: Understanding BMI and Ideal Weight
    Achieving Health and Wellness. Photo

    BMI (Body Mass Index) – is a tool used to assess whether your weight is within a healthy range relative to your height. It is calculated by dividing your weight by the square of your height in meters.

    Here’s the formula for calculating BMI:

    BMI=height (m)2weight (kg)​

    For example, if your weight is 160 pounds and your height is 5 feet 6 inches (approximately 1.68 meters), then converting your height to meters, using the conversion factor where 1 foot equals 0.3048 meters and 1 inch equals 0.0254 meters, your height is approximately 1.68×0.3048=1.524m.

    Now we can calculate BMI:

    BMI=(1.524m)2160pounds​≈2.321160​≈68.97

    According to this formula, the BMI value is approximately 68.97. This value clearly falls outside the healthy BMI range, which typically ranges from 18.5 to 24.9.

    Now let’s consider the interpretation of BMI values:

    • If BMI is less than 18.5, it indicates underweight, which increases the risk of nutrient deficiency, anemia, and osteoporosis.
    • A BMI value between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered a healthy weight with a low risk of weight-related diseases.
    • A BMI value between 25.0 and 29.9 indicates overweight and an increased risk of weight-related diseases.
    • A BMI value between 30.0 and 34.9 indicates obesity 1st degree with significantly increased risk of weight-related diseases.
    • A BMI value between 35.0 and 39.9 indicates obesity 2nd degree with very high risk of weight-related diseases.
    • A BMI value above 40.0 indicates obesity 3rd degree with extremely high risk of weight-related diseases.

    Now let’s create a table to illustrate this:

    Weight (pounds)Height (feet, inches)Height (meters)BMI
    1605’6″1.52468.97

    The ideal weight for a specific height can be calculated according to the range of healthy BMI.

    Remember that BMI is just one tool for assessing your health, and its interpretation can vary depending on factors such as age, gender, muscle mass, and body composition. For a more accurate assessment of your health, it’s always recommended to consult a doctor.

  • Retail Global Market Report 2024: Projected CAGR of 8% with Focus on Local Shopping and Technological Advancements
    Retail Global Market Report 2024: Projected CAGR of 8% with Focus on Local Shopping and Technological Advancements

    DUBLIN, March 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The “Retail Global Market Report 2024” report has been added to  ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

    The retail market size is expected to see strong growth in the next few years. It will grow to $42.76 trillion in 2028 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1%.

    The anticipated growth in the forecast period can be attributed to technological advancements, the impact of data analytics, and a consumer preference for shopping locally.

    Major trends expected in the forecast period include increased investment in innovative technologies, a focus on in-store automation to streamline retail shopping processes, consideration of investments in interactive vending machine technology to boost brand awareness and enhance customer experience, adoption of robots to reduce costs and improve productivity, exploration of investments in drone deliveries for quicker and more cost-effective delivery services, pursuit of providing omnichannel shopping solutions to drive sales and increase profitability, diversification of food options to augment revenues, investment in smart shelf solutions to enhance the customer shopping experience, and collaboration with e-commerce players to offer express delivery services.

    Many retailers are embracing a robust and integrated strategy for data analytics in management. This technology is being implemented to enhance supply chain efficiency, streamline operations to engage customers, and foster loyalty. Data has become a critical component for most retail operations. With the rapid growth in retail data and the availability of technologies to analyze data, retailers can more easily identify and meet the needs and expectations of their customers. This is expected to drive the market forward.

    The growing demand for the food and beverage sector is anticipated to propel the growth of the retail market. The food and beverage sector encompasses the preparation, distribution, and consumption of food and drinks. Food and beverages contribute to enhanced customer experiences, increased revenue, and competitiveness in a dynamic retail landscape. 

    The retail and e-commerce sectors are increasingly investing in drones to reduce delivery times and enhance profitability. A drone, or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), is either remotely controlled or flies autonomously using software-controlled flight plans. Utilizing drones for delivery enables retailers to lower costs and provide customers with quicker delivery compared to traditional methods. For instance, Amazon has invested in its Prime Air drone delivery service, which aims to complete deliveries within 30 minutes. While Amazon has initiated drone delivery trials in the UK, regulatory approval is still pending in the US.

    Prominent companies in the retail market are prioritizing innovative retail services such as collect and receive to offer reliable services to their customers. The collect and receive retail delivery service is designed to provide flexibility, allowing customers to choose the most convenient delivery method based on their preferences and schedule. For example, in September 2023, Uber Technologies Inc., a US-based ride-sharing and transportation network company, and Oracle Corporation, a US-based technology company, launched the collect and receive service. This service integrates on-demand delivery with e-commerce, point-of-sale, procurement, customer relationship management, merchandising, inventory planning, distribution, and restocking systems. Uber and Oracle collaborate to enable the multitude of retailers and brands using Oracle retail apps to leverage the Uber Direct on-demand shipping platform, facilitating seamless product deliveries and returns.

    Europe Secondhand Luxury Goods Market Trends/Drivers

    Growing Demand for Sustainable Consumption

    The secondhand luxury goods market in Europe is being driven by the increasing consumer preference for sustainable consumption practices. As environmental concerns rise, more consumers are seeking ways to reduce their carbon footprint and minimize waste. This has led to a significant uptick in the demand for pre-owned luxury items, which align with the principles of circular economy and responsible consumption.

    The appeal lies in the ability to own high-quality, sought-after products at a fraction of the original cost, while also contributing to a reduction in the overall demand for new goods. This shift is compelling luxury brands and retailers to adapt their strategies to include pre-owned offerings, further supporting the growth of the secondhand luxury goods market in Europe.

    Influence of Online Platforms and Digitalization

    The rapid growth of online platforms and digitalization has played a pivotal role in favoring the secondhand luxury goods market in Europe. The enhanced convenience and accessibility of e-commerce platforms have democratized the luxury market, making it easier for buyers and sellers to connect regardless of geographical boundaries. Online platforms have created a global marketplace for pre-owned luxury items, expanding the potential customer base and driving market growth.

    Moreover, digitalization has enhanced transparency and authentication processes, eliminating concerns about the authenticity and condition of secondhand goods. As a result, consumers are more confident in making online purchases, which is further propelling the expansion of the secondhand luxury goods market in Europe.

    Jewelry and watches represent the dominating product type

    The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the product type. This includes jewelry and watches, handbags, clothing, small leather goods, footwear, accessories and others. According to the report, jewelry and watches represented the largest segment.

    Jewelry and watches are timeless accessories that hold enduring value and are often associated with heritage and craftsmanship, making them prime candidates for secondhand trade. The allure of owning prestigious brands at more accessible prices motivates consumers to explore pre-owned options. Online platforms offer a global marketplace for buyers and sellers, expanding the reach of these luxury items. Moreover, the rarity and uniqueness of certain pieces create a sense of exclusivity that resonates with discerning consumers.

    Moreover, enhanced authentication methods and transparent certification processes address concerns related to authenticity, further boosting customer confidence in purchasing secondhand jewelry and watches. As sustainable practices gain traction, opting for pre-owned jewelry and watches aligns with environmentally conscious consumption, thus augmenting the segment growth.

    Men account for the majority of the market share

    A detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the demography has also been provided in the report. This includes men, women, and unisex. According to the report, men accounted for the largest market share.

    As consumers, men often seek quality, exclusivity, and value, which align seamlessly with the allure of pre-owned luxury items. This demographic’s affinity for iconic brands and well-crafted accessories has catalyzed the market expansion, prompting key players to curate offerings that cater specifically to their interests. From vintage watches to designer apparel, men’s participation fosters a vibrant ecosystem where timeless elegance meets sustainability.

    Their engagement reflects a shift in consumer behavior and underscores the enduring appeal of luxurious craftsmanship. As the European secondhand luxury goods market continues to flourish, men’s influence remains integral, shaping a landscape that melds opulence with conscious consumption, while affirming the market’s position as a dynamic arena for style-conscious individuals.

    Secondhand luxury goods are majorly distributed through offline channels

    A detailed breakup and analysis of the market has been provided based on distribution channel. This includes offline and online. According to the report, offline accounted for the largest market share.

    The main factors that are driving the growth of the offline segment is its reach and resonance as physical boutiques, vintage stores, and upscale consignment shops that offer discerning consumers a tactile and personalized experience which online platforms can’t replicate. These brick-and-mortar destinations curate meticulously sourced selections of pre-owned treasures, providing a tangible connection to craftsmanship and heritage. The allure of exclusivity and the opportunity to examine items firsthand enhances consumer confidence and fosters lasting relationships. Expert staff, often armed with in-depth product knowledge, guide buyers through their choices, infusing trust and authority into the purchasing process.

    Moreover, physical spaces provide a platform for curated events, exhibitions, and consultations, reinforcing the market’s position as an authoritative hub of luxury expertise. The synergy between offline channels and the secondhand luxury sector generates engagement and underlines the enduring appeal of in-person interactions in an increasingly digital age, substantiating the market’s authenticity and prominence in the realm of refined indulgence.

    France exhibits a clear dominance in the market

    A detailed breakup and analysis of the market has been provided based on country. This includes France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, Spain, and others. According to the report, France accounted for the largest market share.

    France stands as a driving force behind the Europe secondhand luxury goods market, exerting its rich heritage and sophisticated sensibilities. Renowned as a global epicenter of luxury fashion, the country’s historical fashion houses and iconic brands have instilled a culture of timeless elegance. This legacy has cultivated a thriving market for pre-owned luxury goods, where authenticity and craftsmanship hold paramount importance. French vintage boutiques and markets offer a curated selection of coveted pieces, celebrating the fusion of tradition and innovation.

    Moreover, the allure of owning a piece of French luxury history draws discerning buyers seeking both unique finds and sustainable choices. France’s deep-rooted connection to luxury, coupled with its allure as a trendsetter, positions it as a natural influencer, shaping the direction of the Europe secondhand luxury goods market and emphasizing the enduring appeal of refined indulgence with a touch of Gallic flair.

    Competitive Landscape

    The market is experiencing steady growth as various key players are driving innovation by incorporating advanced authentication technologies, such as AI-powered algorithms, to guarantee product authenticity. User experiences are being enhanced through intuitive interfaces and virtual try-on features that allow customers to visualize items before purchase. Sustainability remains a priority, evident in eco-friendly packaging practices and partnerships with luxury brands for exclusive collaborations.

    Moreover, key players are adopting Blockchain technology to ensure transparent record-keeping and provenance verification.

  • PUMA to Redefine its Online Shopping Experience with Google Cloud’s AI Solutions
    PUMA to Redefine its Online Shopping Experience with Google Cloud’s AI Solutions

    Leading sportswear brand to personalize and streamline product discovery, customer loyalty rewards, and online-to-offline purchases by moving all e-commerce operations to Google Cloud 

    SUNNYVALE, Calif., and HERZOGENAURACH, Germany, March 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Sports company PUMA today announced it will deploy Google Cloud’s data, analytics and AI solutions to make its online retail experience more efficient, agile, and more personalized for customers worldwide. This will pave the way for consumer-facing innovations, ranging from generative AI shopping assistants, to virtual try-ons, to AI-driven loyalty programs.

    The collaboration will see PUMA shift parts of its e-commerce ecosystem, including PUMA.com, to Google Cloud and build out a global e-commerce data platform. Early results have already driven significant customer experience improvements, including a 19% increase in average order value, as a result of PUMA using Google Analytics and BigQuery to better understand and tailor content to customers. In addition, using Apigee and BigQuery, PUMA has been able to access real-time inventory levels up to four times faster, helping shoppers find the exact products they wish to buy at the nearest possible stores.

    “With Google Cloud’s AI and data capabilities, we have been able to not only gain a far better understanding of our customers, but also translate that insight into frictionless commerce, and more personal shopping experiences both online and offline,” said Pancho Ortuzar, Director Global E-Commerce Engineering at PUMA. “Migrating our e-commerce infrastructure to Google Cloud will greatly accelerate our efforts towards making PUMA’s direct-to-consumer channels a significant driver of overall business growth.”

    Redefining direct-to-customer commerce with AI

    Over the course of this multiyear agreement, PUMA will incorporate Google Cloud AI capabilities at all stages of its direct-to-consumer channels for more tailored and rewarding customer experiences. Vertex AI Search for retail will bring Google-quality search and recommendations to PUMA.com’s digital properties, helping shoppers better discover PUMA’s products and deliver personalized shopping recommendations to consumers based on their current interests and trends. In addition, PUMA will explore Google Cloud’s generative AI and visual search tools to power future bespoke offerings, such as a generative AI shopping assistant and options to “Shop the Look”—or virtually try on sportswear items—with the help of AI-generated content.

    Google Cloud’s AI capabilities will also sit at the heart of Puma.com’s refreshed global loyalty program, accelerating rewards transactions and tailoring special offers and promotions to the preferences of both individuals and their families.

    “Family has always been a big part of the PUMA experience, and our AI-driven approach to loyalty will help us better understand and reward customers based not just on individual but also on family needs,” said Pancho Ortuzar, Director Global E-Commerce Engineering at PUMA. “By streamlining the technology stack and eliminating data silos with the help of Google Cloud, PUMA employees are now freed up to pursue innovative uses of AI and other technologies that build stronger, more nuanced relationships with customers.”

    Building a foundation for innovation and efficiency

    As part of the migration, PUMA will consolidate its global e-commerce data and workloads onto Google Cloud, creating a single data engine that will give the company end-to-end insight into how audiences engage with its brand and digital content, driving faster and more accurate personalization of products and offers. The move will not only generate substantial cost savings compared to PUMA’s previous e-commerce cloud, but also will empower the company to more efficiently exchange data with other internally-used cloud platforms, third-party e-commerce solutions, and even its global network of vendors and partners.

    “By building a centralized customer data platform on Google Cloud, we get the highest quality technology when it comes to analytics, data governance, and security, allowing us to radically improve how we work with partners in the interests of our customers,” said Pancho Ortuzar, Director Global E-Commerce Engineering at PUMA. “Common data standards and API management through Apigee mean that no matter where our retail outlet operators are on their digitisation journeys, they can tap into our digital services and insights without having to alter their current IT systems. That, in turn, enables them to create even more localized experiences, supported by consistently world-class data security and operational intelligence, with minimal disruption to them or their customers.”

    “As consumer tastes become more personalized and bespoke, popular brands will need to look at technologies like generative AI to stay ahead of the curve,” said Carrie Tharp, VP Strategic Industries at Google Cloud. “PUMA’s partnership with Google Cloud is leading the industry in applying cloud, data analytics, and AI to transform the customer experience.”

    EASTSIDE GOLF AND THE PGA TOUR COLLABORATE TO REACH NEW FANS AND PLAYERS

    • Eastside Golf Expands Community Golf Day Events to Four US Cities, Aligned with Key FedExCup Events
    • Eastside Golf’s Coveted Apparel Will Be Available For Purchase at *Select FedExCup Events Inside the PGA TOUR Fan Shop

    NEW YORK and PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla., March 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Eastside Golf, the lifestyle golf apparel brand dedicated to driving change and creating a more culturally relevant point of view of the game, is working with the PGA TOUR to drive grassroots community engagement and outreach to new golf players and fans of the game.

    A cornerstone of the agreement is the expansion of Eastside Golf’s popular Community Golf Days, which are focused on diversifying the sport and bringing fans of the brand together at local courses to experience the fun of golf without the financial barriers commonly found in the game. Now in its second year, Eastside Golf will host Community Golf Days in four cities across the United States, timed to key FedExCup events on the PGA TOUR schedule.

    This year, Eastside Golf’s Community Golf Days will be held across four cities that play host to PGA TOUR stops: Jacksonville, Fla. (THE PLAYERS Championship), Detroit, Mich. (Rocket Mortgage Classic), Memphis, Tenn. (FedEx St. Jude Championship), and Atlanta, Ga., home of the TOUR Championship at historic East Lake Golf Club. The first Eastside Golf Community Golf Day event kicked off in Jacksonville on Friday, February 23, at Brentwood Golf Course. Dates and locations for the remaining cities will be revealed in the coming months.

    The Community Golf Days will feature free tee times for 72 players, food and entertainment, the chance to win tickets to that city’s upcoming PGA TOUR event, as well as the ability to meet with Eastside Golf co-founders Earl Cooper and Olajuwon Ajanaku. Spots are coveted and historically fill up within 48 hours of the event being announced.

    Additionally, for the first time, Eastside Golf’s product lines will be sold in the PGA TOUR Fan Shop at each event to bring the brand in front of new audiences and showcase its unique, high-quality offerings. Traditionally available online only, fans can now explore and purchase Eastside Golf’s collection of apparel including branded hoodies, polos and a collection of graphic tees. Eastside Golf’s signature swingman logo, a young Black man dressed in a sweatshirt and jeans with a gold chain around his neck and a club in mid-backswing, is meant to convey that you can bring your authentic self to the game of golf, with full confidence.

    Kenyatta Ramsey, Vice President, Player Development at PGA TOUR, said: “Eastside Golf is using fashion to change the cultural conversation around golf.  As a more diverse fanbase has come to the game, golf is evolving to engage all who play it and what it actually means to be a fan.  Earl and Olajuwon have been able to create a meaningful brand rooted in golf that brings new audiences into the game while being their authentic self – whether that’s playing 18 holes, attending a PGA TOUR event or wearing an Eastside Golf hoodie. The PGA TOUR is committed to supporting organizations that welcome everyone who wants to be a part of golf, and we look forward to working with Eastside Golf to create more meaningful opportunities to invite new fans and players to the game.”

    Earl Cooper, Eastside Golf Co-Founder, said: “Our goal at Eastside Golf is to show people that you don’t need to look or dress a certain way to participate. Golf is and should be a game for everyone who wants to play, and you can be comfortable bringing your whole self to the course no matter who you are. By working with the PGA TOUR, we can now reach more people and invite them to play, make connections with other players in their community and build more awareness and accessibility for golf events happening in their backyards.”

    Lee Smith, Executive Director of THE PLAYERS Championship, said: “We are thrilled to have hosted Jacksonville’s first Eastside Golf Community Golf Day. The event provided a new reason and opportunity to participate and engage with the game and we witnessed incredible support from the entire community. Eastside Golf’s brand and ethos is changing the perception of who plays golf – we hope that this will help to draw more fans into the game and grow it for future generations.”

    Eastside Golf has grown quickly since its founding in 2019, with athletes and tastemakers including NBA stars Chris Paul and Jayson Tatum, NFL great Victor Cruz, musician DJ Khaled, and former President Barack Obama, among many others wearing the brand’s apparel on and off the golf course. Its success is further underscored by notable relationships with global brands including seven collaborations with Jordan Brand, and strategic partnerships and licensing deals with major entities such as the NBA, MLB, and Mercedes Benz. Eastside Golf was profiled in Hulu’s “Grails: When Sneakers Change the Game,” a six-episode docuseries on how Ajanaku and Cooper are driving social and cultural change in golf. As former members of the Morehouse College golf team, Ajanaku and Cooper are deeply committed to supporting and spotlighting HBCU golf and have donated a cumulative $150,000 in funding, as well as apparel and other gear to their former team.

    Skin Structure Enhancement with Targeted iRF Energy

    Reveal Lasers LLC is proud to announce the launch of Attiva, a groundbreaking, mini cannula-delivered intelligent radiofrequency (iRF) treatment designed to enhance the structure of the skin, on both the face and body with unprecedented precision and efficacy.

    “Things in aesthetics change on a day-to-day basis, and what excites me about Attiva is that it’s a new device that is going to be more precise for enhancing the structure of the skin,” says Erika Barry, NP-C, known as InjectorBunny on Instagram. “It has an easy-to-use mini cannula that goes under the skin and allows us to target areas of the face and body precisely. I can treat patients with Attiva in conjunction with injectable fillers and neuromodulators, with no worries about affecting the product. It’s simply enhancing the product and overall patient results. Attiva truly bridges the gap between cosmetic enhancement, using injectables, with surgical intervention.”

    Attiva sets itself apart with its innovative technology, delivering radiofrequency energy beneath the skin’s surface with a cannula to generate substantial heat, without compromising skin integrity. Unlike traditional treatments, the Attiva system triggers an immediate contraction of collagen fibers and stimulates fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin, resulting in visible, long-lasting results.

    “This treatment has changed the way I address age-related concerns with my patients,” adds Dr. Jack Zamora, Plastic Surgeon in Denver, Colorado. “It’s an in-office treatment that can be performed with simple, local anesthesia and virtually no downtime. I’ve performed hundreds of procedures at this point with no complications and patients are seeing results almost instantly. This technology is the best that I have seen in a very long time.”

    Utilizing continuous, fractional, and sequential radiofrequency currents, Attiva uniformly heats subdermal tissue layers, all while closely monitoring skin temperatures with an FDA-approved thermal imaging camera. This ensures precise control throughout the treatment, allowing providers to tailor thermal diffusion based on individual needs and skin concerns.

    Attiva’s Double Temperature Control system, equipped with a microcannula and external thermal control camera, further enhances treatment safety and efficacy. Providers can confidently administer treatments knowing that both internal tissue and skin surface temperatures are continuously monitored and regulated.

    “We’re thrilled to introduce Attiva to the market,” said Bob Daley, CEO at Reveal Lasers LLC. “With its advanced technology and unparalleled precision, Attiva represents a new frontier in radiofrequency treatments, offering patients visible, contoured results with minimal downtime.”

    Bruce Webers work Men & Women, photographed in the 1980s, shows the enjoyment of being wrapped in cloth, and displays a graceful and exotic use of fabrics.

    Constructive tailoring in doeskin, a smoking cloth used for formal wear, and functional wear in glossy nylon taffeta that floats amidst matte-textured wool.

    Generous and fluid volumes contrasting with a structured tailoring.

    Layering of bottoms and dresses, scarves mingled with sleeves and separated skirts that can be worn on either side like a tablier.

    A luxurious and contemporary nomad style created by free layering.

    Styled with a mix of nuanced colors such as moss gray, ebony, steel gray, and greige, topaz, dusty purple, and mulberry for the color scheme

  • INTRODUCING THE CASHMERE COLLECTION, THE FIRST-EVER FRAGRANCE COLLECTION FROM DONNA KARAN NEW YORK
    INTRODUCING THE CASHMERE COLLECTION, THE FIRST-EVER FRAGRANCE COLLECTION FROM DONNA KARAN NEW YORK

    Embracing the Layers of a Woman

    NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ —

    THE CONCEPT

    As a legendary fashion label that has created the ultimate New York lifestyle for nearly 40 years, Donna Karan New York continues to explore evolving expressions of sophistication, modern ease, and innate style. For the first time, the brand is introducing a fragrance collection, composed of four Eau de Parfums. Each fragrance is meticulously designed to be unique while complementing the others, reflecting the multifaceted nature of a woman.

    THE DESIGN

    With its alluring form and comforting feel, the bottle itself channels the sensation of cashmere on the skin. The graceful, sculpted silhouette suggests fabric in flowing movement, and is complemented by the weighted, magnetic gold cap in an organic shape that connects back to nature. The timeless label adds a refined touch, while the Donna Karan logo is debossed on the neck as a subtle detail. The outer packaging comprises a reusable canister with a top-open lid that reveals the bottle within. Inspired by the drape of a timeless Donna Karan dress, the sleek, dark exterior is asymmetrically spliced with accents of gold. 

    THE SCENTS

    CASHMERE & PALO SANTO (Amber Woody)

    WARM | ADDICTIVE | CAPTIVATING

    CASHMERE & PALO SANTO exudes an immediate and distinctive warmth. Opening with a sparkling Golden Peach, the fragrance releases an addictive blend of Labdanum and Cashmere Woods – its sensual signature. The characteristic woody profile of Palo Santo can be found at the base and contributes to this scent’s lasting allure.

    “I wanted to push the addictive warmth that makes Cashmere Mist so iconic while taking it in a slightly different direction by adding a unique woody element with palo santo as the star.” – Jérôme Epinette, Perfumer

    Perfumer: Jérôme Epinette, Robertet
    Top Notes: Golden Peach
    Mid Notes: Labdanum, Cashmere Woods
    Dry Notes: Crisp Amber, Vanilla Bean, Palo Santo

    CASHMERE & TIARE FLOWER (Solar Floral)

    MODERN | LUMINOUS | JOYFUL

    CASHMERE & TIARE FLOWER proposes a sophisticated spin on tropical freshness, juxtaposing gentle floral notes with amber-tinted woodiness. To start, this joyful scent radiates sun-drenched Bergamot and Ashoka Flower before revealing the sweet and creamy character of Tiare Flower. Accented with seductive amber, the cashmere finish comes from the lushness of Vetiver.

    “This is a modern solar floral composition where the warm and cocooning amber highlights the cashmere comfort, while Vetiver adds a sophisticated mineral woody facet to the fragrance. This confident and memorable signature brings newness to the Donna Karan brand through an enchanting solar floral twist.” – Jacques Huclier & Nathalie Cetto, Perfumer

    Perfumers: Jacques Huclier & Nathalie Cetto, Givaudan
    Top Notes: Mandarin, Lemon, Bergamot, Anjou Pear
    Mid Notes: Tiare Flower, Jasmine Sambac, Ashoka Flower
    Dry Notes: Cedarwood, Vetiver, Ambrofix™, Vanillin

    CASHMERE & WILD FIG (Floral Woody)

    SOPHISTICATED | SENSUAL | UNPREDICTABLE

    CASHMERE & WILD FIG delivers floral vivacity that begins when Black Pepper and Bergamot blend with Freesia and Rose. From there, velvety, sumptuous notes of Wild Fig and Bamboo rise to the surface. The dry-down emerges as an enigmatic evocation of nature – at once earthy and musky – that is mineral rich with a salty finish. A truly unexpected olfactory experience.

    “How to create something unexpected and somehow rooted in nature – this was the goal. Black Pepper on top brings some zest while the wild fig and bamboo in the heart introduce the comforting nature-driven signature.” – Jérôme Epinette, Perfumer

    Perfumer: Jérôme Epinette, Robertet
    Top Notes: Black Pepper, Bergamot
    Mid Notes: Freesia, Waterlily, Rose Absolute, Wild Fig, Bamboo
    Dry Notes: Cedarwood, Salted Musks, Wet Stones Accord

    CASHMERE & TUNISIAN NEROLI (Citrus Floral)

    ELEGANT | DELICATE | EFFORTLESS

    CASHMERE & TUNISIAN NEROLI invigorates the senses with an effervescent burst of citrus. From this intensely zesty debut, the fragrance then blooms with a fresh bouquet of Tunisian Neroli. Cedarwood provides depth and character so that the balanced finish leaves a lasting impression.

    “I wanted to create something that took Cashmere Mist to a more luminous, floral place, which is how I arrived at the blooming neroli.” – Jérôme Epinette, Perfumer

    Perfumer: Jérôme Epinette, Robertet
    Top Notes: Bergamot, Yuzu, Petitgrain
    Mid Notes: Tunisian Neroli, Lavender
    Dry Notes: Cedarwood, Ambroxan

    Design Director Shiatzy Chen begins her story based on the four treasures of the study indispensable to initiating Oriental art and passing on writing culture. Starting from the ink slab and the grounding of the ink slab, we watch as the ink dye spreads widely and endlessly like rain, river and ocean, heavy and light, far and near, ever-changing. Inspired by the spreading, flowing and dying of the ink on the Xuan paper, this collection turns the concept into different patterns and craftsmanship with “flower within flower” as the overarching theme; amidst the embroidered ink blossoms on the clothing and handbags, the jade ink orchid is embellished casually as the highlight of the collection, delving into the depth of Oriental culture as well as exploring the essence of ink marks. 

    Analysing the scene, the horizontal and vertical ink slabs float weightlessly to form the sky as the small puddle of translucent black ink forms the ground. Both the sky and the ground expand along the runway as if raining a poetic drizzle of ink, forming the rhythm of the show with elegance, depth, richness, saturation and nourishment. At the beginning of this collection, we see clean-cut and rectangular silhouettes echoing the shape of the ink slab, with the contour also meticulously focusing on the cutting of the 1960s Western-style suits embedded with the unique craftsmanship of SHIATZY CHEN developed over 46 years. We see suits highlighted as the fundamental style this season, combining Western fabric with Oriental technique in coupled Western and Oriental corresponding versions of the same concept, again manifesting how seamlessly SHIATZY CHEN has grasped the fusion of East and West. 

    Overall, the abundance of ink-coloured clothes this season is sensually stunning. In the details, the gold yarn hidden within black metallic jacquard demonstrates layers of ink inundated with energy; the Oriental-style embroidery layered on Western ribbon creates the effect of piled ink as the black tassels adorned with black wool and mohair interpret the dramatic effect of ink blossoms that fall in place to compose an interplay of stillness and motion. The ink, moreover, is more than just the black. Delving into the Oriental culture, we find the Ming Dynasty artefact “Ink Collection” to be an array of colours from gold on black to emperor purple and jade green, further emphasising the unique quality of peace and calm of the ink. The accessories see a revisit of the virgule heels classic to SHIATZY CHEN with hexagonal metallic grille toes matched with jade bangle handbags embellished with jade ink orchids; such layering brings order to the show in different tints of ink. 

    The AW24/25 is like an avant-garde ode to the scholarly. Dots, streaks and dashes narrate the symbolic meaning of ink to culture, penetrating and influencing gently yet energetically, developing for SHIATZY CHEN a new season filled with possibilities for distinctive individuality.

  • South Africa Clothing Market Analysis Report – Cheap Imports Continue to Flood the Market, with Escalating Power Cuts Limiting Retail Trade
    South Africa Clothing Market Analysis Report – Cheap Imports Continue to Flood the Market, with Escalating Power Cuts Limiting Retail Trade

    DUBLIN, Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The “Clothing Industry in South Africa 2023″ report has been added to  ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

    South Africa’s clothing industry has shown resilience in the face of rising inflation, pressure on disposable income and global supply chain challenges. Clothing manufacturers face rising costs of manufacturing inputs, freight, fuel and wages and falling consumer disposable income due to an economy that is not growing.

    Local retailers are focusing on local manufacturing to bring prices down and shorten lead times to bring fashion to the market. Government regards the clothing and textile sector as a strategic industry with a potential for significant job creation, and has introduced initiatives aimed at improving domestic textile products, processes, and delivery efficiencies.

    Cheap imports continue to flood the market. Escalating power cuts limit retail trade and result in significant increases in operating costs. The breakdown of rail, port and road infrastructure, particularly the backlog at ports, threatens the industry which has stock sitting at sea while fashion and high trading seasons march ahead.

    Opportunities

    A growing young youth population ensures high demand for clothing.

    Growth in online shopping means new companies can sell online without having store presence. If manufacturers can cut lead times and introduce short production cycles, they can establish a significant advantage for retailers who source their products locally. Low barriers to entry for designers and entrepreneurs. The shift to local manufacturing has the potential to create jobs.

    Challenges

    Difficulty competing with the flood of imports on cost.

    The heavy reliance on imported materials make South Africa’s clothing manufacture and retail vulnerable to international events, supply chain disruptions and exchange rate volatility. The rising cost of living, and unemployment levels have reduced the amount that consumers spend on clothing.

    Power cuts causing huge additional costs for retailers to stay open and reduced sales as people stay away from shopping centres during blackouts. South Africa’s relatively small size mean relatively less economies of scale. 

    Trends

    Increased demand for and supply of cheap imported products due to financial hardship and pressure on disposable income. Increased local manufacture as retailers increase their localisation targets. Opportunities Quick response and better stock management resulting in more local manufacture.

    Outlook

    The trading environment in South Africa’s clothing sector is expected to remain challenging in the year ahead with blackouts resulting in escalating costs and in many cases limited production and sales hours.

    Consumers face rising fuel, electricity, food prices and interest rates, which will continue to affect disposable income. A weakening economy and high levels of unemployment have seen South Africans adopt value conscious shopping behaviours which have led major retailers to opening a lot of stores in the low priced segment.

    The drive to source products locally has led to increased investment in capacity for local manufacturing and benefits to retailers in terms of sourcing products quickly and reducing their reliance on international supply chains.

    Report Coverage

    This report on the clothing industry in South Africa includes clothing manufacture and retail and discusses the size and state of the industry, progress on the masterplan, key issues and trends, notable players, and influencing factors such as the power crisis and ports backlog.

    There are profiles of 87 companies including major retailers such as Mr Price, Woolworths, TFG, Truworths and Pick n Pay, manufacturers such as Prestige Clothing and Trade Call Investments Apparel, and school and workwear companies including Gem Schooling, Grand Uniforms and Jonsson Workwear.

    DURAN LANTINK FW24 Fall-Winter 2024/2025 COLLECTION during Paris Fashion Week

    Palais de Tokyo, March 3rd, 2024 Aptly named DURAN-SKI, Amsterdam and Paris-based design label Duran Lantinks A/W24 collection is a conceptual take on the lifestyle of leisure sur- rounding the luxury winter sport.

    Lantinks skiers prefer to glide from the slopes straight into apres ski mode, where power-dres- sing meets play. True to the brands conscious approach, the sumptuous leather, sheepskin and velvet in the collection is sourced from a mix of deadstock and vintage garments, while sustai- nable new materials like recycled lycra and wool, present an opportunity for the brand to scale responsibly.

    The brands exploration into shape and form has now become its signature, with knitwear and outerwear taking volume to the extreme. In a collaboration with Netherlands-based Knitwear Lab, yarns are spun into shoulder-bulging bodysuits and unitards, a series of spliced spencers, and thigh-high socks, inspired by those worn by Dutch firemen in the 1970s.

    As for outerwear, there is ample variety. The ubiquitous puffer jacket is reassembled into cropped twinsets from repurposed ski coats, shearling jackets are fashioned from discarded sheepskin and paired with matching shaved boots. The brand occasionally still plays with hybrid design, with vintage Loewe and Margiela pieces forming a basis for new shapes; a sloping leather bom- ber and padded hot pants.

    While exaggeration remains an important part of the brands vocabulary, definition and clean cuts can be added to its repertoire, as evidenced in sharply tailored suits and jackets. The power forms of the 80s are reinterpreted in Lantinks way, with wide, forward-facing shoulders as a focal point.

    Wearability is also at the forefront, while staying true to the brands experimental nature. This season was about shaping the forms to give them the idea of being wearable, says Lantink. I want to create essential items that are unexpected.

    About Duran Lantink

    Duran Lantink is a fashion label based in Amsterdam and Paris known for its ever-evolving, cons- cious collections. In a process that fuses existing materials with innovative low-impact materials, the brand finds beauty in the things weve left behind.

    ATLEIN FW24 AW 24 during Paris Fashion WeekATLEIN FW24 AW 24 during Paris Fashion Week

    ATLEIN FW24 Fall-Winter 2024/2025 COLLECTION during Paris Fashion Week

    The cyborg is a kind of disassembled and reassembled, postmodern collective and personal self. This is the self feminists must code.

    Donna Haraway, Simians, Cyborgs and Women: The Reinvention of Nature

    The heroine, the fighter, the survivor. Antonin Tron finds inspiration in his favorite sci-fi movies for the new ATLEIN Fall Winter 2024 season.

    Scarlett Johansson in Under the Skin, Natalie Portman in Annihilation final girl warriors and SF icons in charge of their power, sexuality and destiny.

    The collection is alien, mysterious, sensual and sexual; the body exposed, in tension and ready.

    The collection merges utility wear and hyper femininity: classic ATLEIN dresses in ribbed and viscose jersey are updated with protective hoods, hardware and metallic zips sown into the ruching construction details, evoking the sensual gesture of opening and closing a wetsuit.

    The silhouette is bodyconscious, active, often elongated, not fully earthbound.

    Construction is at the heart of Antonins work. Fabrics are pulled, draped, ruched, knotted, molded around the body.

    Injected new fabrics have mineral, alien qualities: silver coated jersey as liquid lead or mercury, crystal mesh, a reptilian sequin and cracknyl, a couture fabric with a meteorite-like surface originally created by Cristbal Balenciaga.

    Classic ATLEIN fabrics include: shiny viscose jersey, rib viscose, voile de jersey and stretch lace. Antonin continues the exploration of vegan alternatives to leather with special jersey coated to render the effect of nappa and suede.

    About ATLEIN:

    ATLEIN (AT-LINE) is an independent French fashion house based in Paris founded by designer Antonin Tron. A dedicated surfer, Antonin designs with a focus on the body, its energy and movement. The name ATLEIN is homage to the Atlantic Ocean. ATLEIN is the recipient of the 2016 ANDAM Creative Brand Prize and the 2018 ANDAM Grand Prize.

    About ANTONIN TRON:

    Born in Paris in 1984, Antonin Tron studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp and apprenticed with Raf Simons. Upon graduation in 2008, Antonin returned to Paris and joined the studios of Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and Balenciaga before establishing ATLEIN.

    ELIE SAAB Fall-Winter 2024/2025 COLLECTION during Paris Fashion Week

    READY TO WEAR FALL WINTER 2024-25 MELODIES OF GRACELAND

    On a chic and vibrant Memphis night, MELODIES OF GRACELAND pulsate through the city streets. The ELIE SAAB womans eyes light up in the soft glow of the neon lights, dancing to the timeless songs come alive in the READY-TO-WEAR F/W 24 collection.

    Modish feminine silhouettes shimmy onto the scene with subtly exaggerated volumes, elaborated materials and ornate details. Extravagant beaded paisley glistens into wool capes and crop-top crepe ensembles. Strong Moody Blue oversized denim expressions interpret

    golden abstract ELIE SAAB monograms into chic Western motifs over broad shoulders and wide hemlines. In a more subdued song list of black and white, melodies of Viva Las Vegas magenta and Suspicious Mind green carry in airy flowing silk and draping cady dresses with swirling rosette brooch embellishments. Long bold fringe draws attention to clean lines as it swishes and sways down sleeves, across pockets and midlines in movements of country glamour.

    Dazzling oversized manteaus envelope the ELIE SAAB woman through the day and into the embrace of sundown, where she continues to channel her Presley magnetism. Intricate appliqu traces the contours of figure-hugging velvet cocktail fun, while lace-embroideries flourishes into tulle sweetheart bustiers and plunging V-necklines. Classic black crepe off-the-shoulder pencil gowns come to life as illuminating white bouquets vine across their sides. High cowboy chunky heeled boots, big buckle-forward crossbodies and charmed belts add the final carefree touches with the refined spirit of the Wild West.

    In READY-TO-WEAR F/W 24, the ELIE SAAB woman emerges as strong and gentle, exciting and full of grace, reflecting a contemporary spirit. The collection is a never-ending song where the MELODIES OF GRACELAND resound beyond Elvis, in the iconised images of Priscilla.

    ACCESSIBLE LUXURY BRAND JARED JEWELERS SIGNS DETROIT LIONS’ STAR QUARTERBACK JARED GOFF

    “He went to Jared;” The Quarterback kicks off partnership by gifting his 8 offensive linemen a $11,500 Breitling Timepiece

    AKRON, Ohio, Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Jared, the high-end, accessible luxury retailer of Signet Jewelers, announces partnership with star quarterback, Jared Goff. To kick off the partnership, Goff gifted each of his offensive linemen a Breitling timepiece available at select Jared store locations. Goff personally signed the inside lid of the boxes for his teammates while on a media tour in Las Vegas this past weekend.

    As Goff propelled the city of Detroit to a place it hasn’t experienced in the football realm in thirty-two years – an NFC championship game – the Jared brand not only shares a name with the quarterback but the values of grit, drive, heart and humility as well.

    “Seeing the fans this past season holding ‘He Went To Jared’ signs of support meant so much to me. We have the greatest fans in the world and I was pumped when the Jared Jewelers’ team reached out,” shared Jared Goff. “Certainly, the name play is fun, but this truly is a match made in heaven. Having the opportunity to work with such an approachable and high-quality brand has been so rewarding and I’m looking forward to unveiling some additional surprises soon!”

    The jewelry retailer is redefining luxury through trend-driven, high-quality fashion, bridal, and men’s jewelry, including timepieces, that emphasize both style and substance.  As a leading jewelry destination, Jared carries a selection of the world’s top watch brands in an expansive collection, giving customers the opportunity to compare brands and features and to easily find the perfect accessory to own and to give. Ranging from sophisticated style accessories, rugged sports watches, heritage timepieces and more, Jared has established itself as an expert watch destination. Distinguished brands available include TAG Heuer, Breitling, Frederique Constant and Longines, among other luxury brand names.

    “Partnering with Jared Goff is a relationship rooted in something much more profound than a clever name play. It’s built on the values that drive us both – earnestness, a sense of caring, authenticity, and humility,” said Claudia Cividino, President of Jared. “It is our pleasure to partner with Jared Goff in celebration of the historic season he helped deliver for Detroit and its fans and present the offensive line with these Breitling timepieces.”

    Breitling watches are available at select Jared retail locations. To inquire further and to purchase, Jared Breitling watch experts are also available. https://www.jared.com/jared-breitling-watches#breitlinglocations

    LEONARD PARIS Fall-Winter 2024/2025 COLLECTION during Paris Fashion Week

    LA ESCAPADA

    “I imagined a Parisian woman traveling to South America.

    She adapts to the local style while retaining her original allure.

    Its the Parisian chic meets the Latino fatale”

    GEORG LUX

    creative director

    24Fashion TV Leonard Paris FW24 look 52 1709327021 jpg

    What if we were to seek the sun in the land of the Mayas? Exuding warmth in both materials and colors, this new LEONARD PARIS collection bridges the gap between Parisian chic and the flamboyance of the Latino spirit.

    This season, our ladychic escapes to South America. Her gypsy-luxe allure takes on a Mexican or Peruvian twist. Dressed in blouses with puffed sleeves, her skirts or dresses are midi-length. She is a confident woman who doesnt need high heels to assert herself. She cruises with subtlety, South America simply evoking an allusive destination.

    Like the cactus flower, which has become one of the seasons key prints and changes size depending on the model: it can be found in an XXL format, so as to be no more than an illusion on the long, evanescent dresses that are the Houses signature. Each outfit is an invitation to travel.

    CAROLINE HU Fall-Winter 2024/2025 COLLECTION during Paris Fashion Week

    Reverie by CAROLINE H

    For this Fall Winter 24 season, Caroline Hu continues the exploration of the idea of distance and space between people. How perceived distance can feel vastly different depending on the relationships and situation that one finds themselves in regardless of the physical distance. Even between the closest of friends, there is always a small distance, like a thin and hazy layer of gauze softly protecting but not as indestructible as armor. The collection explores the idea that people are willing to show their true selves only with a certain distance and self-protection. 

    This season Hu uses more intense and brighter oil painting colors to depict the world as she sees it like a kaleidoscope, adding a layer of unnatural light and shadow to everyday scenes. The result is a gradual distortion that is both romantic and colorful, yet tinged with various opposing forces. In her paintings, you’ll find imagery of various ordinary characters abstractly combined through color and materials, including vibrant flowers, dark blue shadows at sunset, the fading glow of dusk, homes with lit lamps, and the warm company of cats. The deeper message here is that despite the uncertainties of this year, never lose hope. 

    Hu experiments with various overlay techniques, enhancing her oil sketches with black embroidery sequins, unusual dresses, cotton shaped around the body and covered with beads. A continuous overlay of different techniques and crafts aim to create abstract visual colors that captivate the eye. 

    Intricate patterns, sometimes combined with pillow-like inflatables and drapery form dramatic dresses and tops. Various textures are expressed through Hus signature smocked tulle, vintage crocheted lace and hand crocheted plastic lanyard laces. A collaboration of customized Adidas Originals sneakers are worn throughout with ruffles and smocking in black and blue colorways set for availability this season. Hu also partners with the French lace company, Sophie Hallette.

    With 27 looks, the THEUNISSEN FW24 collection continues to explore the image of a liberated woman through strong, entirely monochrome looks. This season, Belgian designer Ariane Theunissen emphasized cut and volume, revealing the power of her silhouettes. 

    The play of transparency, combined with sculptural cuts, emphasize body shapes and are contrasted by the presence of more surprising accessories such as XXL fur hats. 

    The designer’s aim with this collection is to appropriate the clichs of a sometimes austere bourgeoisie, and play with them, by placing more daring garments revealing feminine curves. 

    Presented at the Palais de Tokyo, the THEUNISSEN FW24 collection remains faithful to the brand’s refined, sensual image, while bringing a breath of modernity to women’s ready-to-wear.
