Sustainability Comes At a Cost. Fashion Isn’t Paying. | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

Key Insights

  • The BoF Sustainability Index tracks fashion’s progress towards ambitious sustainability targets for the coming decade. It examines public disclosures to rigorously benchmark performance and enable like-for-like comparisons at 15 of fashion’s largest companies.

  • The Index found that while fashion companies are speaking about sustainability more than ever before, actions are lagging public commitments. The average overall score of the companies assessed was just 36 out of a possible 100, with significant disparities between engagement and action.

  • Information about how companies are planning for the substantial investments required to meet sustainability goals emerged as a significant blind spot, with companies failing to match bold ambitions with details of how they plan to pay for them.

Last month Bangladesh-based denim manufacturer Mostafiz Uddin asked some of his customers for help securing a $3 million loan he said he needed to pay for upgrades that would allow him to operate more

Body Cosmetics of Beverly Hills introduces gluteal enhancement | News

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Body Cosmetics of Beverly Hills, a leading provider of cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical treatments, is proud to be one of a small number of practices in Southern California offering gluteal enhancement using silicone buttock implants. For a woman or man considering enhancing the contour of the buttock, silicone buttock implants can present distinct advantages over Brazilian butt-lift (BBL).

“As a primary treatment, silicone implants are an excellent option for the person who is looking to enhance the shape of their buttocks,” says board-certified surgeon Joseph Yadegar, MD, FRCS, FACS, of Body Cosmetics. “This is very similar to a breast implant, and can be placed safely deep within the tissues of the buttock.”

For some patients, buttock implants may be the only option. The traditional BBL is for people who have enough fat for transfer to the buttocks, but for

There’s no doubt that accessories can make or break an outfit. They’re like a sartorial cherry on top, instantly adding a chic finish to any look. While we’re ready to commit to this season’s It bag and sleek, low-heel sandals to complement our outfits, there’s one accessory that is dominating the fashion industry right now: the headband.

Claudia Skoda’s knitwear revolutionised fashion in 70s Berlin

In the early 1970s, German fashion designer Claudia Skoda joined an experimental Berlin collective. Based in an abandoned Kreuzberg factory, their studio space, the ‘fabrikneu’, loosely resembled that of Andy Warhol, with a revolving door of cool upstart weirdos: a model who posed for Helmut Newton, an artist who would go on to gain international recognition and a percussionist for the band Tangerine Dream and Iggy Pop, to name a few. Claudia’s speciality, however, was something one might consider a little less anarchic: knitwear.

Entirely self-taught, Claudia began playing with a flatbed knitting machine in the late 1960s, when she couldn’t find the kinds of clothes she wanted to wear anywhere else. Though knitting isn’t necessarily a medium one associates with counter-culture, Claudia designed

Evan Mock Says the Next-Gen ‘Gossip Girl’ Is “Blunt” and “Woke”

Evan Mock may be one of the world’s most sought-after male models, landing campaigns with Calvin Klein and shows for Louis Vuitton, but the Oahu-born skater and surfer was still navigating sports endorsements when he stumbled into a very 21st-century industry meet-cute: At a North Shore kickback in 2019, contemporary artist Tom Sachs clocked Mock’s pink hair and asked him to say hi to his friend in a skate video. The friend turned out to be Frank Ocean, and the video went viral. Now the 23-year-old has traveled with Travis Scott on tour, and not only does he have his own clothing brand, Sorry in Advance, he worked with Justin Bieber on a line too. Later this year, Mock makes his acting debut in the Gossip Girl reboot on HBO Max—good morning Upper East Siders indeed.
