The Best Fashion Photos from the 1950s

The debut of Christian Dior’s well-known New Look collection in 1947 marked the beginning of modern fashion history as we know it. With frame-fitting designs, ladylike accessories, and opulent details taking the forefront, the 1950s gave birth to a new approach to glamour. Entering the decade with elegance and sophistication, women were gravitating toward shape-defining silhouettes like billowing tea and poodle skirts–and experimenting with trousers in the process. Though everyone is looking to the later decades for style inspiration, it was the ’50s that led to some of fashion’s most memorable designs.

Returning office workers seek sweet spot between casual and formal | Fashion

With a return to the office now a real possibility, workers in the UK are thinking about something they haven’t for a while: what to wear. This comes after 16 months at home with only a laptop for company – and only a semblance of presentability required for video calls. The conventions of office attire are being reassessed, particularly by men who often wore suits for work.

Act now to stop garment workers being abused | Fashion

I read Hannah Marriott’s article (The truth about fast fashion: can you tell how ethical your clothing is by its price?, 29 July) and agree that “voting with your wallet [to fix fast fashion labour and environmental abuses] will only go so far … and won’t be possible for many people who are struggling”. We welcome her suggestion to write to MPs and CEOs – and there’s now something specific you can demand, a simple solution that will tackle a key cause of poor working conditions at its source: a fashion watchdog.

This isn’t just about assuaging consumer guilt. During

Phoenix fashion boutique, Frances, will remain locally owned

It was four years ago that Phoenix native Jade Noble worked her first shift at Frances Boutique in Central Phoenix. 

This day, though ordinary, was one she still remembers. Her dream began that day. 

“I called my boyfriend that day and just said, ‘Wow, I wish this store was mine,’” Noble said.  

And now it is. 

On July 28, Frances owner and founder Georganne Bryant sold the store to Noble. The 33-year-old entrepreneur is also one of the owners of the Phoenix bar, Linger Longer Lounge

“People have been asking, ‘Are you sad?’ and no, I’m not,” Bryant said.

Best Fashion Instagrams of the Week: Dua Lipa, Jonah Hill, Cardi B, and More

Looking for beach attire? Dua Lipa has those summer dreams covered. The pop star posed pretty and sun-soaked on a yacht this past week in a curve-skimming dress by the designer Louisa Ballou. It was pure ‘70s cool: the slinky dress with blue and orange petals boasted a killer V-cut down to the navel, connected by an O-ring. It’s the ultimate hot-weather look.

Someone else showing some skin was Cardi B. The rapper took a pregnant mirror selfie dripping in gold to promote Normani’s “Wild Side” which Cardi B’s was featured on. The gilded look, which included a bikini and
