From Istanbul to London and Dubai to New York, in the last decade, the modest fashion industry is beginning to gain recognition by mainstream brands in the West. After the world’s largest online modest fashion retailer, Modanisa debuted their annual fashion week in Istanbul last year, London Modest Fashion Week (LMFW) hit the catwalks at Olympia London during the Easter weekend last month.

LMFW unified leading global influencers including the first hijab-wearing IMG model,...

The typical fashion show isn’t very likely to save lives.

That’s one reason Saturday’s charmingly convivial convergence in Graton of smartly dressed models and connoisseurs of exceptional apparel, wine and food was not typical.

Paul Mathew Winery hosted Dress for a Cure as a benefit for uninsured women who look to Sutter Health in Sonoma County for mammograms and other breast-cancer screening services.

Dupa 25 de ani de casatorie, intr-o zi mi-am privit sotia şi i-am spus:
- Iubito, acum 25 de ani stateam cu chirie, aveam o masina ieftina, dormeam pe o canapea şi ne uitam la un televizor cu ecran de 14 " alb-negru, dar în fiecare noapte
adormeam alaturi de o blonda sexy de 25 de ani. Acum avem o casa mare, o masina buna, un pat mare un TV color cu plasma. Dar adorm acum cu o femeie de 50 de ani. Draga mea, cred ca ai o problema !
Sotia mea fiind o femeie inteleapta,...

Cine a fost ?
pe 13 Mai 2017 315

Soţul şi soţia acasă.
Sună telefonul.
Soţul ridică receptorul, ascultă jumătate de minut, fără să scoată un cuvânt, apoi îl pune în furcă.
– Cine a fost?
– Probabil cineva de la Meteorologie a greşit numărul. A întrebat: „Draga mea, orizontul este curat?”

Mums know best when it comes to beauty tips
Most of us learn a lot from our parents, including manners, values and work ethic. Ladies also get the added benefit of learning how to look after their skin and make-up master classes from their mothers, and it's now been revealed just how much we appreciate those pearls of wisdom. And with it being Mother's Day in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand, along with other countries, on Sunday (14May17) - what better way to celebrate what our...

Toms is known for its annual One Day Without Shoes program, a day where social media users are encouraged to post a picture of their bare feet or Toms and tag the photo with a hashtag: withoutshoes.

But the brand is changing things up this year.

“This started 10 years ago as a day of awareness to help people understand what struggles children who do not have shoes...

Fashion goes Native
pe 5 Mai 2017 135

When you think about Native Americans and fashion, your first thought might be “beads.” (Well, at least mine was). Wait, no — feathers! No — buckskin with fringe! What’s more Native American than buckskin pants worn by some high-cheeked hunter about to shoot a deer?

Well how about a Louis Vuitton arrow quiver?

That is just one of the beautiful and unsettling items on display at Native Fashion Now, an exhibit at Downtown’s National Museum of the American...

In person, Suneet Varma is the very epitome of restraint, polite to a fault and without any ostentatious displays of ego or self-aggrandizement that often plague the fashion industry. On the ramp, however, a whole other personality emerges. Fascinators take on gargantuan proportions, ruffles envelope the torso and Swarovski crystals find their way into the most intricate of embroideries.

This penchant for opulence was on full display at the designer's 30th anniversary fashion...

Undeva în Australia :
Când am ajuns la vârsta de pensionare, m-am prezentat la oficiul de pensionare de care aparțin. Doamna de la tejghea mi-a cerut actele personale, să-mi verifice vârsta. Am căutat prin buzunare, dar mi-am dat seama că le-am uitat acasă. Am spus că mă întorc mai tarziu şi aduc actele de identitate. La care doamna: "Descheiați-vă cămașa"Am descheiat-o, şi au aparut firele de păr cărunțite de pe piept. "Aceste fire cărunte sunt destule dovezi"...

Sanjay Garg’s clientele is not one that needs to be sold the concept of buying saris; they have already bought it and they keep coming for more.

They are neatly piled one on top of the other—the effect of which reminds you of walking into a highly organised, colour-coded stationery store.

Raw Mango was Garg’s first label which started in 2008 and focused on the Chanderi weave. “I am not one to pick...
