50 Stylish South Asian Fashion Influencers to Follow

Every time I open up Instagram or TikTok, I’m captivated by a flurry of fashionable and inspiring new posts by South Asian influencers. It seems like sheltering in place for many people has allowed us all to go back to our roots and focus on what makes us happy and what energizes us, which brings me to these inspiring influencers.

Being an Indian woman in fashion, I’ve personally been so excited to discover a diverse group of talented South Asian influencers who have been making me feel less alone at this time and embrace our culture even more. While I know what it feels like to be “othered” in the media industry, my mission has always been to shed some light on both my culture and its rich history in both fashion and beauty. I want people to feel like they can see a bit of themselves in an industry

Follow these tips for tux shopping to make sure your wedding attire measures up | Weddings

“Since March 15, we’ve had several weddings where the couples had bought and paid for rentals of tuxedos and suits online and the retailers simply stopped communicating with them,” Lerner says. “The weddings were happening, and the couples had no response.”

The pandemic no doubt has been a contributing factor, with layoffs, closures, mail delays and shortages of manufactured goods and raw materials in the apparel industry, he says.

“When you have things bought and paid for and you don’t communicate with the bride and groom in the weeks leading up to the wedding, that’s a problem,” Lerner says.

Lerner’s shop, Bel Air Fashions, sometimes has come to the rescue with just two weeks to pull everything together. “We’ve had Zoom and FaceTime calls and after-hours appointments to help couples.”

The clothier stresses the need to finalize your wedding attire six to nine months in advance. And to get everyone

It’s Time to Follow Bella Hadid and Embrace the Beauty of Mushrooms

While mushrooms are beautiful to look at, they seem to give even more to the fashion world. Yesterday, my colleague, senior fashion news writer Emily Farra, mentioned to me that she had received mushroom leather in the mail last week. She also pointed out that the Twitter user @bxxwie created a thread comparing runway images to mushrooms: Radiant orange polypores were compared to a searing tangerine dress at Christopher John Rogers from fall 2020, purple clavaria zollingeri to a tiered look at Balmain spring 2019, and a smooth and curvy alien panis lecomtei to a bulbous skirt on a dress at Alexander McQueen spring 2007. 

Of course, while mushrooms cut an interesting, sometimes droopy, shape, there is another level to their playful appeal. Nicolas Atkins of Electro Magnetic Studios, the brain behind Hadid’s mushroom necklace, created them

Hipages expected to follow Adore Beauty’s lead for lower risk IPO

It is understood Hipages will look to raise $40 million through an issue of new shares for its IPO, while a shareholder selldown would account for another $50 million to $70 million.

The amount of the selldown depends on how much Hipages’ existing shareholders – including News Corporation’s News Pty Ltd, fund manager Ellerston Capital and venture capital firm Right Click Capital – sell into the transaction, which is yet to be determined.

GS says Hipages worth up to $370m

Sources said News Corp – which owns about 30 per cent of the business – was unlikely to be a big seller, while Right Click wanted to offload some of its stake.

Funds raised would help Hipages pay off $12 million in venture debt and help the company invest in its brand and products. The 200-person Hipages helps tradespeople generate business leads through an online marketplace but wants to expand

Study: Women more likely than men to follow COVID-19 guidelines

Oct. 5 (UPI) — Women are more likely to adhere to guidelines from medical experts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic than men, according to a study by researchers at Yale University and New York University.

Among the guidelines women followed more, were maintaining 6 feet social distance, handwashing and mask wearing in public, according to the study, published this week in Behavioral Science and Policy.

In previous findings, women have also been more likely to follow preventative practices, researchers noted.

“Previous research before the pandemic shows that women had been visiting doctors more frequently in their daily lives and following their recommendations more so than men,” lead author Irmak Olcaysoy Okten said in a press release.

“They also pay more attention to the health-related needs of others. So it’s not surprising that these tendencies would translate into greater efforts on behalf of women to prevent the spread
