Parents furious after Dior launches baby skincare and perfume line

Parents have been left furious after a popular fashion brand launched a baby skincare and perfume line, saying youngsters categorically don’t ‘need’ beauty products.

Dior has unveiled a new range of beauty goodies aimed at babies and children, which some people think is an ‘adorable’ idea, while others can’t believe what they’re seeing.

The designer fashion brand actually once had a ‘baby care line’, launched back in 1970, but it was later discontinued.

However, it’s decided to give it another stab, having made the bold decision to ‘revisit Baby Dior’.

It comes after Dior Perfume Creative Director Francis Kurkdijan joined the brand back in October 2022, telling WWD: “One of the projects I had in mind was revisiting Baby Dior.”

Kurkdijan continued: “Christian Dior evoked his childhood many times as a very happy and joyful period of his life.

“The scent and the baby care line were discontinued, and

Everything That Happened at Stockholm’s Fashion X and Why You Need to Know About It

Tired of waiting for endless talk of change to actually spur action, the Swedish Fashion Council (SFC) drew a line in the proverbial sand and took a stand for change in the industry, establishing Fashion X last year as a way to move away from market-centric shows and focus on designers and other ways of understanding the industry. “If we look into Fashion Week, it’s [about] events connected only to fashion, and what we try to do with Fashion X is also connect fashion to culture,” SFC CEO Jennie Rosén told Vogue Runway.

The second edition of the event, which gathers fashion folk from across the globe in Stockholm, took place last week. In four jam-packed days in Stockholm, guests listened to talks (some in collaboration with Dazed) on diversity, emerging talent support, Gen Z, forestry, and the secondary market. They enjoyed African cuisine and locavore fare

How Willy Chavarria Won the 2023 American Menswear Designer of the Year Trophy

It was just in September that Willy Chavarria’s Spring 2024 offering, his “most emotional collection” to date, as he described it to Hypebeast, was brought to the runway. The Fresno, California-hailing fashioner has always viewed his design practice as a medium for self-reflection, a platform for building up those who look, see and feel like he does. But what was most special about that Spring 2024 collection was its ability to articulate the different facets of Chavarria’s being: facets that, at one point, felt like barriers to his success in the notoriously exclusive world of fashion.

Chavarria’s powerful, heartfelt interpretation of those historically disadvantaged signifiers — his queerness, his biracial identity as the descendant of an Irish-American mother and a Mexican-American father, and his working-class upbringing among immigrant farmers in California’s San Joaquin Valley — became awe-inspiring for anyone who could see themselves in them. And on the evening of

Circular Luxury Fashion Represents A Dilemma For Existing Brands

In a world of fleeting fashion trends and escalating production costs, the fashion luxury industry finds itself at a crossroads. Second-hand fashion luxury represents both an opportunity and a threat for traditional brands. Could the true essence of luxury lie in the timeless allure of high-quality, limited-edition pieces from decades past? If so, how should traditional brands adapt?

The Age of Shrinkflation and Threats to Scarcity in a Globalised Luxury Industry

Once upon a time, acquiring a luxury item often required a pilgrimage to a specific city, where local brands cultivated exclusivity and craftsmanship, defining qualities of luxury. Long before the digital boom and the rise of luxury conglomerates, each market had its unique set of offerings, heightening the sense of rarity and personalization.

Fast forward to today, and one finds near-identical luxury products, ubiquitously available around the globe,

Africa’s fashion industry is growing to meet global demands: UNESCO

ABUJA, Nigeria — Africa’s fashion industry is growing rapidly to meet local and international demand but inadequate investment limits its potential, UNESCO said Thursday in a report released during Lagos Fashion Week.

Currently valued at $15.5 billion worth of exports annually, the earnings from the continent’s fashion industry could triple over a decade with the right investment and infrastructure, according to UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay, who launched the organization’s first report on fashion in Africa in Nigeria’s economic hub of Lagos.

With a young population of 1.3 billion people set to double by 2050, the continent’s fashion industry has also proven to be both “a powerful lever for the promotion of cultural diversity (and) also a way to empower young people and women,” said Azoulay.

Across the continent, fashion continues to grow on various fronts – including in movies and films – in the form of textiles, garments as well
