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

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

Gypsy Sport Designer Rio Uribe On LAFW, Fragrance And New Brand Name

One of the coolest, cult, underground labels today is Gypsy Sport.

Over the past decade, designer Rio Uribe has carved out a new space for a brand

With its logo, which looks like an astrological symbol, or perhaps an interpretation of the planet Jupiter, we’ve seen Gypsy Sport grow from an underground, genderless, streetwear-focused brand to something more sophisticated. Today, it fuses elements of high glamor with jersey chic.

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.

Now, Uribe launched his latest collection at Los Angeles Fashion Week. The new collection celebrates Chicano history

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,
