This year has been one of reflection. And when looking back, one can’t help but also look forward. As we begin to emerge from our Covid quarantines, we’re wondering what we can expect from the fashion industry. This week, we discuss the big themes we expect to see and the trends we think will continue. Sustainability, the rise of ecommerce, exceptional personal service, inclusion and diversity, resale, quality over quantity and cyclical fashion all have a place moving forward. And we couldn’t take a look at the industry without thinking about the future of RWCT and our place in it. Listen in to hear what’s happening. Plus in Style Snacks, Psykhe is live and kinda like the shopping version of online dating. <a href='

Fashion brands are upping marketing rhetoric and imagery to include a wider range of body types, but many companies are still failing to serve the plus-size consumer. The market for plus-size fashion is worth nearly $30 billion in the US alone. But while brands are upping marketing rhetoric and imagery to include a wider range of body types, many companies are still failing to serve the plus-size consumer. In the latest episode of The BoF Podcast, chief correspondent Lauren Sherman speaks with Marie Denee, creator and editor-in-chief of The Curvy Fashionista, Alexandra Waldman, co-founder and creative director of Universal Standard and BoF’s senior editorial associate Alexandra Mondalek about the right way to do plus-size fashion. Plus-size customers want one thing: choice. But too often they’re left sifting through limited ranges that reflect a narrow view of how they should dress. “Give us the same assortment,” Denee said, adding that brands must unlearn tropes about what the industry can offer plus-size consumers. Lazy marketing that co-opts the language of body positivity without really serving plus-size shoppers is also a problem. “We have to learn to speak to a consumer that has been not just ignored, but belittled… it’s an emotional minefield,” said Waldman. “Body positivity is a personal journey.” Companies need to invest in plus-size ranges too, taking the time and spending the cash to perfect fit, style and branding. “You have got to be led by the change and not the money,” explains Waldman.

In this bonus Ask An Expert episode we're joined by Dr Shobhan Manoharan. A Fellow of the Australiasian Collage of Dermatologists, Foundation Member of the Australasian Society for Cosmetic Dermatology, member of the Australian Medical Association and a Senior Lecturer at the University of Queensland and Griffith University, Dr Manoharan has worked in both the United Kingdom and Australia and has sub-specialised in cosmetic and laser dermatology. Having been published extensively in local and international medical journals over the last decade and with a special interest in pigmentation disorders, laser rejuvenation and skin cancer management, I found Dr Manoharan to be the ideal doctor to objectively answer YOUR questions surrounding the skin on the hands and the neck. Away from our regular brand founder conversations, I am asked so many highly specific questions about the skin. Given that I am an educated consumer and by no means an expert, it would be extremely unethical for me to even attempt to address your skin concerns which is why I insist on taking those questions to a medical doctor. This Ask An Expert series is giving you, the Glow Journal audience, unprecedented access to medical doctors, professors and dermatologists and, while the series is sponsored by Candela Medical, doctors legally and ethically have to remain completely objective in interviews like this. For this reason, this series is giving you, the listeners, completely unbiased expert answers to your most specific skin questions- questions that I cannot answer myself. In this episode, we’ve taken the questions YOU submitted on caring for the neck and hands to Dr Manoharan - from which facial skincare ingredients are safe for use on the hands and neck and whether the old adage that the hands and neck age first is truth or a myth, through to whether or not topical skincare can do anything to firm loose skin on the neck and how best to treat visible veins and dark spots on the hands.

Charlotte Palermino, CEO of Dieux Skin and self-proclaimed skincare fairy godmother, is here to make you rethink ALL of the beauty rules that we have subscribed to (oftentimes, without question). After jumping on board the clean beauty train in the mid-2000s only to find her skin more irritable than ever, Charlotte realized just how tricky beauty marketing could be. Today as a beauty founder, licensed aesthetician, and “reformed clean beauty buyer,” Charlotte’s approach to the industry is extremely nuanced and a good reminder that this good vs. evil skincare thing is really not serving us as consumers. Tune in for an unforgettable conversation unpacking the myths around daily exfoliation, DIY skincare, beauty regulations, and of course, sunscreen. Enjoy!

The designer’s teacher turned close collaborator and friend, reflects on how Elbaz communicated his fashion dreams to the world. Ever since the news of Alber Elbaz’s death broke last weekend, the fashion world has been in a collective state of mourning. Many have eulogised and memorialised the designer’s unique ability to make women feel empowered in the clothes designed. But few knew him better than Shelly Verthime, his close friend and collaborator, who first met him as his teacher at the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel. This week on The BoF Podcast, editor-in-chief Imran Amed and editor-at-large Tim Blanks speak with Verthime and reflect on Elbaz’s influence, recounting the highs and lows of his career defining moments. From the beginning of his career, Verthime said Elbaz created a clear path for the steps he wished to take with the industry. “I knew that there was just something so special about him, it was so clear to me where he is going,” she said. “At the time I was his teacher but very, very soon he became my teacher, and then he became [the industry’s] teacher and mentor and friend.” Throughout his career, Elbaz exercised the power of communication as well as creativity. Elbaz was an “original creator, emotional creator but he was a fantastic communicator,” Verthime said. “He knew what works and what doesn’t work for him.” Elbaz was known for his efforts to empower women, dressing them suit to their needs and build their confidence. His close relationship to his mother facilitated his understanding of women as multifaceted. “What he wanted to do was that his clothes would enhance the personality, where you see the face… it was about the woman who would wear it,” said Verthime. “He wanted assertive women [and] he wanted women to love themselves.” Related Articles: Lessons for the Fashion Industry From Alber Elbaz’s Talk at VOICES 2018 Alber Elbaz on Making His Return to Fashion Inside Alber Elbaz’s Return to Fashion To subscribe to The BoF Podcast, please follow this link.
