Fashion review: Marc Jacobs and the Ghosts of Fashion Past and Future

New York Fashion Week came to an end Wednesday in the empty, echoing wine-dark Armory on upper Park Avenue where a few small rows of metal stools faced each other across a truncated mirrored runway like an island, floating unmoored in space.

Beyond ‘Queer’ Fashion

Propped with his style crew against the putty-tone headboard of a lumbering, half-made bed, Nay Campbell was in his element.

On the Runway: At the Grammys, Sisters Dressing for Themselves

It’s possible that the most out-there moment of fashion week took place Sunday night thousands of miles away from the New York catwalks — sorry, red carpet — at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In the Mosh Pit of American Fashion

Gambling With Fashion Fame

In fashion, a designer who is enjoying breakout success and buzz tends to be described as “having a moment.” Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy had a moment when she was revealed as the designer of Meghan Markle’s wedding dress.

On the Runway: The Lessons of the Women in White at the State of the Union Address

For anyone who has ever thought that the use of clothing as a political tool was frivolous or overstated, or groaned at yet another piece insisting that a woman in a white pantsuit was making a statement, there was no better riposte than the State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

On the Runway: At New York Fashion Week, Where to See and Be Seen

Fashion may be a sprawling global industry but in many ways it can feel a lot like a high school, with its own cliques, pecking order, hangouts — and cafeteria.

Arianne Phillips, the Oscar-nominated costume designer who became a public name thanks to her work with Madonna, hit her long dark night of the red carpet soul a few years ago. “I was completely burned out on GoFundMe and tired of feeling like a resister solely on social media,” she said on the phone from […]

Tycoon of the Pre-Owned

In Paris, the Hunt for Real Emotion

PARIS — When, at 12, Grayson Perry began covertly dressing in women’s clothes, he assumed in his innocence that the impulse must have something to do with wanting to be a member of the opposite sex. For decades he pursued his cross-dressing adventures, first in private and then very publicly as a Turner Prize-winning artist […]

Unbuttoned: New York’s Lost Department Stores

On Saturday, Henri Bendel, the department store whose brown and white stripes once defined the concept of the boutique as a carnival of gewgaws and glamour, will shut its doors for the last time.

On the Runway: On the Golden Globes Red Carpet, a Retreat

Thus does the promise of red-carpet change that hovered over the Golden Globes only a year ago — when women took back their wardrobes for the night — get squandered.
