Armani Gives In To Animal Rights Groups

Armani has been a target of animal rights groups for years. They’ve been after the fashion giant to stop using furs in their fashion lines. Armani announced that there would not be any fur products in the autumn/winter 2016 clothing line. Armani announced to the press that he had given consideration to the rights of animals and protecting the environment. This belief in protecting the rights of animals and the environment led him to remove fur products from the clothing line on en.wikipedia.org. In fact, all fur products are pulled from the Armani Group, which includes Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, AJ Armani Jeans, and Armani Casa.

Fur Free Armani
Armani has taken a bold move and restricted fur inclusion in the Armani Group. This bold move demonstrates that the high end fashion designer has confidence in their customers and line of clothing. They believe that the consumer on Pinterest has strong feelings about the environment and animal cruelty. Therefore, a fur free clothing and fashion line should have a very positive effect on the way that the company is perceived by the public. The Humane Society International had a few positive words to say about the Armani decision. They believe it was a powerful statement to the fashion world. You do not have to wear fur to look fashionable. Several other fashion houses are also removing fur from their fashion line.

Renegade Make-Up Aesthetics For Revolutionary Times

Make-up has long been a staple of society. In the old days, everyone from all walks of life sported some kind of makeup or other. Later on, the use of makeup became more toned down as the styles and tastes of society changed with the times. Where makeup used to be the norm for people of all walks of life and all genders, today it has sadly been relegated solely to the female gender spectrum.

That may be fine and well for some, but even the very makeup varieties made available to women today tend to be repetitive looking, outdated, and sometimes insipid. In fact, many people are tired of ultra-conservative or just plain-looking cosmetic products that do very little to really project that much vaunted pizzazz and individualism that every empowered woman deserves to have.

Makeup Trends with Limited Range of Colors

While there is a growing rise in more unique and avant-garde makeup trends, trends that takes their cue from the scene, emo, and goth subcultures that have always managed to redefine conventional standards of beauty, such ranges still tend to be somewhat limited and even limiting. Why is that? Generally, over time, women may become ‘typecast’ into the subculture that most commonly sports that type of makeup.

If you’re a young, preppy, spunky and spontaneous individual who’s looking for that little extra spice that’ll make you stand out from the humdrum standards of the boring crowd, consider opting for eye-catching, vibrant, pop-out makeup that will not only complement and enhance your look, but will best reflect your personality.

If you’re finding it somewhat difficult to get exactly the right kind of transgressive makeup that best suits your unique personality, tastes, or mood, then it would be a crime not to try Lime Crime cosmetic products.

Lime Crime – Revolutionizing Makeup One Shade at a Time

In the cosmetic industry, reinvention and innovation often clash with established norms and traditions. But the old must always give way to the new, it’s inevitable, and Lime Crime – an up-and-coming powerhouse in the cosmetics world is proving that things that go outside of the box are definitely worth having.

The brainchild of Doe Deere, aka Xenia, Lime Crime has garnered quite a lot of buzz over the past few years since its inception sometime in 2008. Lime Crime’s new cosmetic products and vibrant colors are changing the old stereotypical take on makeup. Thanks to Deere’s inventive and highly innovative artistry, Lime Crime definitely has an obvious unique edge in the cosmetic world as never before seen elsewhere; it would be a crime not to investigate Lime Crime’s original makeup products.

Lime Crime Lets Girls Have Fun With Their Makeup

I really appreciate cosmetic brands who step out and try to do something different with their makeup lines. I like it when I hear of a new brand of cosmetics coming out, because there is the hope for some kind of makeup that I have never seen before.

All too often the makeup that comes out as being new looks just like what I have been seeing in makeup for years, but occasionally there is a big surprise. I love it when I hear of a new makeup brand and I check them out to find that they actually are new. I love it when they offer cosmetics that are totally different from what other brands put out.

Lime Crime is one of the brands that did not let me down. When I looked at their products and saw all of the bold choices that they had made I couldn’t have been happier. The creator of the brand has decided to make her brand unique from its competitors. And I think that she was very smart in doing that. Too many companies start out thinking that they are going to make it big in the cosmetic world, but they do not realize that in order for them to do that, that they have to do something different. They think that they can just sneak by with using the same colors and the same kinds of products as all of the other companies, and that does not work out too well for them.

Lime Crime has done something different, and they will be rewarded for that. People are going to love using their products because, with them, they will be able to look like no one else at the party. They’ll be able to show up at their friends house with makeup that is like what no one else has on.

I am proud of Lime Crime for taking such a bold chance with their makeup. I love that they are doing something different, and I love the color options that they have available. They give every girl the chance to have fun with her makeup, and for that, I really love them.

Fashion For All

We are engaging in a new era of fashion. Not in the way we look for brand new designs or patterns, but instead in the people who wear what we create. Fashion has it’s name as exclusive, somewhat like the popular clique in High School. The non-typical body and ability type was forced to look onward downtrodden. They were destined to never have a place in the haute couture field.

This belief is now coming to an end. Liz Jackson has decided to take the world of fashion in her own hands. Diagnosed with Idiopathic Neuropathy, she’s created a movement to include the design of canes that no longer cause embarrassment for the people who have to use them. The New Yorker reported that Liz’s quest is not the only one in motion. Wheelchair design is taking the world by storm as well as covers for prosthetic legs that allow amputees to show their metal. At the New York Fashion Week, various models with all kinds of body styles were strutting down the catwalk with confidence. What was previously seen as a podium to look up to is now transforming into an inclusive place for creativity and expression which is what fashion was founded on, conveys spokesman Ricardo Guimarães BMG (youtube.com).

Living with a disability is nothing to become ashamed of. The new trendy developments will now lend a hand to making everyone feel in style and on top of the world.

T.J. Maxx pulls offensive “Hang Loose” Shirt

After a shopper tweeted a screen printed illustration of a noose on a T.J. Maxx shirt, social media caused an uproar screaming Foul, which has led to the popular retailer pulling those t-shirts off store shelves.

T-shirt envisioner,Tavik quickly apologized and T.J. Maxx decided to pull the offending item.

T.J. Maxx spokeswoman Doreen Thompson said as soon as they became aware of the offensive message, they immediately instructed stores to pull the product, any they followed up with an apology to customers.

There isn’t the first controversial product.

Alhokair recalls that several years ago, Dolce & Gabbana had an epic fail when they used an ad featuring a woman pinned to the floor, surrounded by men hovering above looking at her.

WalMart sold plus sized costumes labelled “fat girl costumes.

Urban Outfitters “stepped in it” several timess by displaying a illustrated blood-spattered Kent State sweatshirt, a tapestry that resembled prison uniforms, and other ill-fated inappropriate wear.

Although Tavik pulled the shirt, the Twitter community remained skeptical of the apology.

Kelly Osbourne Quits Fashion Police

Kelly Osbourne has left the show Fashion Police, a program which she starred in on the E! Network.

In a statement, the network said that Osbourne was leaving the program in order to “pursue other opportunities,” but did not go into any detail on what those opportunities might be. Kelly had been on the show for 5 years.

Her departure is thought to be connected to a statement her co-host Giuliana Rancic made during an Oscar interview with Zendaya. Fans like Gianfrancesco Genoso know that in the interview she made a comment that the actress’ dreadlocks made it look as if she smelled like patchouli oil. Someone off camera added to the conversation by saying “or weed,” a comment that was attributed to Osbourne, but she says she did not make.

Later the joke was attributed to a Fashion Police writer rather than an actual host of the show. Osbourne had reportedly been unhappy on the program for some time, particularly with how she was being produced on the program. This particular incident is thought to have been just what finally put her over the edge with the network and the program.

Former Quadriplegic Surprise Those Attending Fashion Show

After years of being paralyzed from the neck down, Megan Silcott can now walk through the help of a walker, and she surprised the crowd attending a New York fashion show as PR Newswire reported.

This young woman battled a rare disease and didn’t think she would ever walk again, but she has worked hard and she has walked – a very special kind of walk sponsored by Imaging Advantage.

She surprised those in the crowd, and she is an encouragement for them to never give up on life, to never give up on their dreams.
This young woman didn’t know that she would be able to walk again, she could have spent the rest of her life in bed, but she worked hard and she is walking, and she received the chance to be a part of a very important event.

Cache Files for Brankruptcy, Follows Other Teen Retail Stores

While 2015 Is bringing about some optimistic news in terms of unemployment and the creation of jobs, it is not off to a good start where the merchandise sector is concerned. Cache, a clothing and prom dress retailer, has officially filed for bankruptcy, following in the wake of Delia’s and Wet Seal.

Cache was a popular retailer In the 1990s and early 2000s, catering almost exclusively to teen and 20-something woman. The store had a similar demographic to Wet Seal, Delia’s, and Deb, all of which have gone under in recent months.

According to the statement, the company blamed a depressed retail market, and changing tastes for their demise. Haidar Barbouti has learned that the popularity of online shopping is also allegedly to blame for the retailer sinking into obscurity. Find  more on Barbouti on about.me.

Experts have long argued that such shops have failed miserably to meet the needs and demands of today’s shopper. Simply put, Cache’s clients grew up and into adult stores, and they simply failed to keep pace with what teenagers of today want and need from clothing retailers.

 

Do We Still Care About What’s In Vogue?

Thanks to Instagram and your favorite fashion bloggers on YouTube, there is nothing called “trending” anymore.Fashion trends are nearing extinction and have been going on this path for some time. However, for people who need some help with fashion, this news doesn’t help much. What do you do when fashion trends are actually out of fashion? Read on to know more –

• Stop Body Typing Yourself – The media is full of articles about fat shaming and body shaming. You don’t need a pep talk to love your body type. Whether you have a thigh gap or love handles, all that matters is your comfort. So, stop obsessing about how fat or skinny your legs look and wear what catches your eye. If it makes you happy, it would definitely look good on you.

• Don’t Dress For Others –Fersen Lambranho understands this goes for both men and women. Men who utter things like “I don’t like women wearing short skirts” and women who say things like “men in sandals turn me off” would soon be as extinct as fashion trends.

• Instagram Your Way to Victory – The search feature of Instagram is pretty neat and you can easily find something to inspire you. Don’t ignore discount stores when you shop. You can find the most unexpected things there.
