^The Fashion Fix^ – 28th October 2019
Inside this week’s instalment of The Fashion Fix, we discover the nominees at this year’s Fashion Awards; H&M Group collaborate with Ikea to conduct a large-scale study of recycled materials, and online fashion retailer Nasty Gal establishes a partnership with Cara Delevingne.
The Fashion Awards Nominees Revealed
The nominations for this year’s Fashion Awards have been announced, with Bottega Veneta’s Daniel Lee receiving four proposals, of which three being individual and the other one for Bottega Veneta – not too shabby given the new creative director has only taken the reigns for the Italian luxury brand for eight months.
Other standout nominees include Simon Porte Jacquemus for Accessories Designer of the Year, Riccardo Tisci for Burberry for British Menswear Designer of the Year, Rejina Pyo for Rejina Pyo in the category of British Womenswear Emerging Talent and Gucci for Brand of the Year.
H&M Unite with Ikea
Announced during the 2019 Textile Exchange Sustainability Conference, the H&M Group and furniture giant Ikea have collaborated to illustrate a large-scale study focusing on recycled textiles.
In an attempt to become more circular, H&M has been striving towards its aim of amassing its use of reconditioned materials, and consequently attains an awareness in considering the chemical content of gathering pre-loved materials to certify safe use of recycled materials. Both parties purpose to apply their discoveries to cultivate an action plan for the use of second-hand fabrics, which will adhere to strict safety standards.
Nasty Gal’s Partnership with Cara Delevingne
Online fashion retailer Nasty Gal have collaborated with British model and actress Cara Delevingne to present an exciting holiday-inspired ready-to-wear clothing range, which is available to buy this week.
The collection consists of over 40 pieces, reflecting the captivating bravura of the global supermodel and includes sheer tops, statement tees, beaded jackets, 80s power-shoulders and vegan leather. Prices vary from £15 to £150 and sizes range range from UK 4 to 24.
Until next time, xoxo, Katie.
