Reform addresses sustainability at NYFW
This year, Reformation’s presence at New York Fashion Week will be invisible, like a show that never happened. But it happened, and it was digital, minimizing the brand’s environmental impact and entirely avoiding the waste that would have been created by an IRL show. For the “no-show show” collection, Reformation presents real clothes in a fake show.
By ditching her signature summer dresses and filling the “runway” with both fashionable and comfortable fall accessories, treat yourself to collegiate collars, brown blazers and vests, romantic silks and comfortable knits. And using a roster of new, sustainable cold-weather materials — think cashmere and wool — and complementing looks with second-hand accessories from The RealReal, the brand shows us that the best outfits come with thoughtful touches. .
Mejuri opens its first mall at Toronto’s Yorkdale Mall

“Toronto represents the beginning of Mejuri; it’s our home base,” co-founder Noura Sakkijha said in a statement. “Many of our very first Toronto customers are still shopping and interacting with us six years later. Even as we expand globally, the relationships we have with our community here especially allow us to continue to offer new stores and parts.

Michael Kors presents its latest must-have handbag

BonLook collaborates with Canadian tennis star Leylah Fernandez
