They provide them a trip to New York to have the opportunity to participate in the New York Study Tour. It includes questions that they asked to the student on why they went, what they learned, who they visited, and more.
“As a fashion community, we are able to celebrate, and share with the world, different cultures” Vogue release there Vogue Arabia and they decided to have Gigi Hadid as there cover. There was a lot of controversy on why she was chosen to be represented as the first cover, that the hijab is just beaded veil and much more. She is also perceived as the "All-American Girl", and many people were confused on why she would be representing something other than an American. To her defense, her father is indeed Muslim; which makes her half-Palestinian. I picked this article because I liked to see how Vogue and Gigi Hadid would handle the hate that they are getting from people.
This new brand-to-know is the perfect example of luxury's new direction. Minimizam has been taking over; from houses, outfits, school, and many other things. The brand Arjé has created his new collection and has made a minimize modern, but luxury brand.

This spring, designers are creating beautifully busy looks in pattern-blocked dresses and eclectic accessories—all with a chic crazy-quilt appeal. Patterns use to be one of the biggest mistakes someone could have made in fashion. A few years ago, some designers have embraced the smocking and embroideries with there clothing line. Now, patterns are seen everywhere and are stables in everyday wear.

“Keeping it real” with Swimsuits For All The model end of the fashion industry is very stereotypical; having a size two body and a fair completion.

Gabrielle Greg has been creating a plus size swimwear collection for a few years now with Swim Suit For All, and this year she out did herself.

For the non-cookie cutter brides I choose this article because it shows how the fashion industry is changing and accepting more looks and styles. By designers impressing this no traditions look, it is giving women more strength to embraces them selfs. You still have that classic and feminine white color, but with the manliness of the pants/jumpsuits.

I really enjoyed that part of it because it is very convent and easy to read.

Gwen Stefani is a perfect example of someone who portages street style. She has the iconic red lip; which most may say is her "Statement" piece. The statement piece can be represented by, jewelry, shows, accessories, or even makeup; just how Gwen did with her lipstick. This statement piece can be your identity and personal brand you give yourself.
