Mel Reid hopes to keep the party going at Women’s PGA

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) — Mel Reid can be excused for feeling a bit sluggish when she woke up for a practice round at Aronimink. The fatigue carried over to the point where she wanted to blow off practice later in the day.

Winning a tournament — as Reid did Sunday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic for her first LPGA Tour title — can take a lot out of a player.

Reid soaked up the championship party, from leaving the course drenched in champagne to turning her Waterford crystal trophy into a keg and chugging beer out of it with caddie Ryan Desveaux.

Philly just might have to extend last call at McGillin’s.

“We obviously partied quite hard on Sunday,” Reid said on Wednesday. “Des, more than me. I was trying to be a little more sensible.”

For good reason. Reid, a 33-year-old from England, is among the contenders to

Woman hopes to bring more clothing variety to Albert Lea with new boutique – Albert Lea Tribune

A Garner, Iowa, woman is hoping to bring more variety of women’s and children’s clothing to Albert Lea with the opening of a new boutique in the strip mall near Walmart.

The Funky Zebras was slated to open at the end of September and will be at 2355 Leland Drive, said owner Katie Schleusner.

Schleusner said she started out as a brand ambassador for The Funky Zebras location in Clear Lake but did not think about owning her own store until the owner of that boutique suggested the idea to her.

“I said, ‘There’s no way I can do that,’” she said.

Schleusner, who is a wife and mother of three school-aged children, is also attending Allen College in Waterloo, Iowa, to become a nurse practitioner.

After some further encouragement from The Funky Zebras founder, in June she decided to give it a try.

“The opportunity came up, and I

The new fashion line, planned pre-pandemic, is Rihanna’s second foray into a live Savage x Fenty show. The first, which premiered at the end of 2019, was one the first in its class to combine a runway show with live performances, as much a showcase as it was a live concert.

Marks & Spencer has started selling an independent eco-fashion brand on its website as part of a plan to reinvigorate its struggling clothing arm.

The Nobody’s Child label bills itself as an antidote to a damaging fast fashion industry and makes its £35 floaty minidresses and teadresses out of recycled polyester and sustainably-sourced viscose. The five-year-old London company says it is “not perfect” but “on a journey to making better decisions for the planet”.

The decision to stock outside brands is a departure for M&S which is still the country’s biggest clothing retailer. In May, Steve Rowe, the company’s chief executive, said it would stock guest brands both online and

The decision to stock outside brands is a departure for M&S, which is still the country’s biggest clothing retailer. In May, Steve Rowe, the company’s chief executive, said it would stock guest brands both online and in its largest stores as part of plan to broaden its appeal and boost online growth. In the summer M&S lost out to rival Next in the battle to operate the lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret in the UK.

Sterling Ruby Weighs In on His Fashion Week Film, Building a Brand, and His ‘More Fears Than Hopes’ for the U.S.A.

What do you see as the benefits of participating in an organized Fashion Week and speaking to the fashion world?

I see the fashion world as somewhat parallel to the art world. This isn’t a complete or definitive statement, of course. Both art and fashion have hollow, empty aspects, but they also share brilliant, thoughtful moments. Some of my best friends operate within fashion, and more often than not, our interests and projects run through both worlds—conceptually, formally, politically, etc. As I continue to make work between genres, increasingly it’s about deciding what medium best serves the current iteration of an idea and how to maintain a sense of fluidity through these areas. Participating in an organized Fashion Week is an opportunity to commit to a specific context, one that is tied to wearability and the body. I appreciate the sense of occasion—it’s a moment for many different designers to
