^The Fashion Fix^ – 19th September 2019


Amid the last seven days, the fashion industry has unveiled the news of Demna Gvasalia stepping down as creative director of Vetements, Gucci continues its efforts towards a more sustainable future by pioneering an entire carbon-neutral movement and Victoria Beckham announces the launch of her makeup collection at London Fashion Week.

Demna Gvasalia Leaves Vetements

In the pursuit to explore new ventures, news has recently broken that Vetements frontman Demna Gvasalia is stepping down from his position at the Zurich-based fashion house. Despite this, Gvasalia will be continuing as creative director of Balenciaga, where on 29th September, he will showcase his spring/summer 2020 collection during Paris Fashion Week.

Gvasalia started Vetements five years ago because he found fashion to be monotonous but since its existence, he feels that the brand has helped better shape the face of fashion and therefore, Gvasalia believes his work has been accomplished and is now ready for new endeavours.

Gucci’s One Step Further Towards Sustainability

It has been announced that Gucci is continuing to work keenly and strategically to escape and moderate our impacts, though concurrently capitalising in improvement as a force for sustainability.

The Italian houses’ efforts are now entirely carbon neutral and have alleged it will counterbalance all outstanding greenhouse gas emissions on a twelve-monthly basis from its actions and the whole supply chain throughout its developments that encourage forest conservation around the world. The outcome of these aspects permits Gucci to affirm that its supply chain has positively become carbon neutral.

Victoria Beckham Launches Make-Up Range

After waiting nearly eight months, Victoria Beckham has finally debuted her much-anticipated beauty brand, which was unveiled during her latest collection at London Fashion Week.

A Smokey Eye Wardrobe is the first product to be revealed from the beauty line, consisting of three sets in total, which reflect Victoria’s signature, classic style. Entirely cruelty-free, the Smokey Eye Brick, £48, translates as the must-have product, which is an eye-shadow palette that houses four shades: Signature (burnt terracotta), Royal (smokey cranberry), Tweed (plum) and Tuxedo (rose taupe) presented in smooth, satin and matte textures.

Available for purchase exclusively on VictoriaBeckhamBeauty.com and at the Victoria Beckham Dover Street store for a limited time.

Until next time, xoxo, Katie.
