Since his first collection launched in New York in 2013, we’ve seen his vision as a designer evolve over the past decade. He has transformed the way we look at basketball jerseys, numbers, logos and lace.

Adaptive Clothing Brands | POPSUGAR Fashion

The need for adaptive clothing brands is more transparent than ever as a search for easy-on, functional, and stylish items yields very few results. And the companies that do offer solutions for those living with disabilities maintain they have yet to see most mainstream brands introduce similar adaptable features to their products.

Tommy Hilfiger and Brooks Brothers actually have MagnaReady to thank for the technology necessary to bring adaptive clothing to the retail space — the company, started by Maura Horton in 2012, pioneered and patented a total of four magnetic closures that are today used as a creative solution in design at both heritage fashion houses. On the lingerie front, Liberare‘s magnetic front fasteners and assistive grip loops for a no-pinch closure have given way to bestselling wireless bras since 2022, and Victoria’s Secret is fast following in its footsteps, also applying sensory-friendly fabric and adjustable and convertible

Highlights From Los Angeles Fashion Week 2023

Los Angeles Fashion Week, presented by N4XT Experiences, ran from October 18 to 22, showcasing, more than anything else, up-and-coming talents. When one typically thinks of a Hollywood-based fashion extravaganza, brands like Revolve and Alo come to mind, so do the Kardashians. But instead, we saw futuristic fashion, sportswear-inspired looks, and a dash of the macabre. Some of highlights included silk pieces, quiet luxury beige and sci-fi couture.

It may be hard for young designers to make it in the fashion industry, but it’s even harder for women. In a sea of male fashion designers, LAFW showcased a total of 12 runway shows and presentations. Three and a half of them were female designers—Sami Miro, Imitation of Christ designer Tara Subkoff, Demo, co-designer of the Demobaza brand, and Claude Kameni (sadly,

Fashion brands want you to be able to identify fake designer merchandise

Editor’s Note: This story is part of CNN Style’s ongoing project, The September Issues: A thought-provoking hub for conversations about fashion’s impact on people and the planet.


To become a “master” authenticator at Fashionphile — the highest level of training to weed out designer fakes at the luxe online marketplace — takes more than 8,000 hours of rigorous schooling, according to the company. Trainees learn to quickly spot an error in the date format inside a Louis Vuitton bag, for example, or know the correct metal alloy makeup of a Cartier watch.

Its competitor, The RealReal, also relies on human senses and instinct — recognizing the smell of a $25,000 Hermès Birkin bag, or the feel of its smooth Barenia leather — but the retailer’s first round of checks is undertaken through AI, with software trained on 30 million images to discern nearly imperceptible differences in the stitching
