Khloe Kardashian's denim brand Good American makes its mark on the fashion industry
The jeans brand, which the reality TV star founded with Emma Grede, made its debut on October 18 with three styles, available in a size-inclusive range of 00 to 24. Despite fashion's current focus on wide cuts and rigid denim styles, the duo have focused on body-skimming, flexible pieces with reinforced waistbands to eliminate any gap between the waist and hips. The brand, whose jeans are all manufactured in the US and stocked online at www.goodamerican.com and in selected Nordstrom boutiques, is now preparing to launch its first denim skirts, shorts and jackets, as of January 2017.

Bangladeshi slum kids work over 60 hours a week to make clothes: research
By Nita Bhalla NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - One third of children living in the slums of Bangladesh's capital spend more than 60 hours a week making clothes for the garment sector, well beyond the legal working limit, a London-based thinktank said on Wednesday. The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) said 32 percent of children aged between 10 and 14 living in Dhaka's slum settlements were out of school and engaged in full-time work in clothing factories - according to a survey of 2,700 children. "Our survey raises serious concerns over the issue of child labor in the supply of garments from factories in Bangladesh to consumers in Europe, the U.S. and elsewhere," ODI said.

The legendary French fashion label Chanel paid hommage to its founder Coco Chanel Tuesday with a show at the Ritz in Paris. Pillbox hats with netted veils, long woolly jumpers and scarves, tweed suits glittering with gorgeous inlay and pearls aplenty, you half expected Mademoiselle Chanel to appear for afternoon tea with one of her ne'er do well aristocratic lovers. The redoubtable designer spent a large part of her life living in a suite in the swish hotel, including most controversially during World War II, when a German intelligence officer, Baron Hans Gunther von Dincklage, shared her bed.

Gigi Hadid's top model moments of 2016
The results are in, and Gigi Hadid has been officially crowned 'International Model' of the year at the 2016 Fashion Awards, retaining her place at the very top of the fashion food chain. Having been somewhat typecast as a 'curvy' blonde (by supermodel standards at least), Gigi sent shockwaves rippling through the fashion world when she stepped out onto the Balmain Fall/Winter 2016 catwalk as a brunette for Paris Fashion Week. Starring in Tommy Hilfiger's fragrance campaign 'The Girl' in July, Gigi showed off her playful side, as well as offering a glimpse of the nautical theme that would run through her debut fashion collection, TommyxGigi, launched with the designer in September.

Is the fashion world becoming more political?
Fashion isn’t just a way to express oneself artistically anymore – somehow, unexpectedly, it’s become a central part of the political sphere following the 2016 election. From Hillary Clinton’s iconic pantsuits, to Melania and Ivanka Trump's influence and connections to the fashion world, voters have had plenty of looks to emulate, as well as businesses they could choose to boycott or support, depending on their political preference. While some companies, such as outdoor wear designer Patagonia or shoe company Toms, have made names for themselves as socially conscious brands intent on fighting climate change or poverty, the connections between specific designers, retailers, and a political candidate’s family is a newer phenomenon ushered in by President-elect Donald Trump’s move from a businessman to the White House.

Internet applauds unretouched photos of Victoria's Secret supermodel
A set of new photos from Victoria's Secret features a rare but exciting element: An unretouched model. A Victoria's Secret behind-the-scenes photo shoot of model Jasmine Tookes have surfaced showcasing the the 2016 Bright Night Fantasy Bra, a whopping $3 million garment. While it's unclear if the company intended to release these photos or if they were made public by accident, they appear to be unretouched. What is most notable are the stretch marks that can be seen on the model's thigh. SEE ALSO: Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid appear knee-less on magazine cover Many celebrities have spoken against the use of Photoshop, and lingerie brands such as Aerie have pledged to stop airbrushing models. Victoria's Secret is known for its sometimes egregious use of Photoshop, which might be the reason why these raw photos are being celebrated. But really, what is there to airbrush anyway? Image: dimitrioskambouris/getty Image: dimitrioskambouris/getty Image: dimitrioskambouris/getty Whether intentional or not, Tooke's photo shoot has received praise for her visible "flaws."
