As you can imagine, we’re all a pretty fashion obsessed bunch. We talk about it, we style it, we sell it, we eat it and sometimes we smell it (more to come on that later). Below is the round-up of what we’ve been discussing on our tea breaks over the past few days:
– A Marie Claire blogger writes “I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room” and that overweight people simply make her feel “uncomfortable” in regards to the new US sitcom Mike & Molly. The magazine has since received over 28,000 emails (yes, you read that figure correctly) claiming to boycott the magazine unless said blogger is fired. We’d like you guys to weigh in on the matter. Do you think she should be let go for stating her opinion? Read the article in the link above and comment below!
– Luigi Bobbio, the mayor of the Italian town Castellammare di Stabia located just south of Naples, is being called a “chauvinist” for a ruling approved by the town council this week to bans skirts that are too short and tops that are too revealing. Police in the town are now authorized to find women for violating this new dress code. We guess these Preen dresses are out of the question, then…
– Speaking to aspiring fashion editors at Teen Vogue‘s annual Fashion University in New York, Anna Wintour suggested getting fired as a great way to develop in the fashion industry. “I worked for American Harper’s Bazaar … they fired me. I recommend that you all get fired, it’s a great learning experience.” Not something we plan on trying here at Feathers headquarters but nonetheless and interesting approach!
– We spotted Janet Jackson at the Haider Ackermann show at the beginning of this month and now we see her wearing an off-the-runway look to the premiere of “For Colored Girls” at Ziegfeld Theatre on Monday. What do you think of Janet’s high fashion make-over? To shop more Haider Ackermann click here.
So that’s it from our Stockroom Chit Chat this week. We would love to hear your thoughts in our comments section below!
