At Prada, Decoding Raf’s Remix | Fashion Show Review

A few brands are staging real-life shows in Milan this season, but Prada once again opted for a digital format to communicate its latest men’s collection. The output consisted solely of a video; no pre-recorded chat between co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons; no Q&A with their fanbase.

Philadelphia Orchestra premiere new song for 9-year-old fashion show | Lifestyle

Michael Gardner taught his 9-year-old Ava daughter to make daily affirmations. Every morning, before school, she hype herself in positive words.

That morning’s routine continued during the coronavirus pandemic, where Ava’s school was completely remote. Her own words of encouragement were delivered in the
