Tommy Hilfiger to pen memoirs to mark the brand's 30th anniversary

Tommy HilfigerIn his upcoming memoir with Ballantine Books of the Random House publishing group, Hilfiger will revisit his childhood and his origins in the fashion industry, as well as the setbacks, triumphs, and sheer determination that drove him to build a multi-billion dollar global lifestyle brand. The book is due to be released in the fall, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the Tommy Hilfiger brand. Tommy Hilfiger is a name synonymous with classic, all-American style that melds pop culture and the preppy, East Coast lifestyle. The designer launched his eponymous fashion label in 1985, and the brand quickly expanded to include womenswear, Hilfiger Denim, kidswear, accessories, fragrance, and home, among other categories.

Ex-supermodel Waris Dirie says FGM can end in her lifetime - TRFN

Human rights activist and top model Dirie from Somalia delivers a speech as part of the 4th World Meeting of Human Values and Culture of Lawfulness in MonterreyBy Emma Batha LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Supermodel turned campaigner against female genital mutilation Waris Dirie said on Thursday she was optimistic that FGM could be eradicated in her lifetime, branding the tradition "a cruel and perfidious war on little girls." "FGM breaches all human rights and has no place in any 21st century society," said Dirie, who underwent FGM in Somalia when she was 5 years old and whose sister bled to death after being cut. Dirie said her Desert Flower Foundation aimed to save 1 million girls across Africa from the "barbaric" ritual in the next few years through a sponsorship project which provides food, kerosene and school fees to families who pledge not to cut their daughters. GROWING MOMENTUM AGAINST FGM Speaking after receiving a human rights award at the House of Lords in London, Dirie welcomed the growing global momentum to stamp out FGM, a procedure which can cause lifelong physical and psychological problems.

Wedding bells and curlers at Gaultier for fashion week

A model presents a creation by French designer Jean Paul Gaultier as part of his Haute Couture Spring Summer 2015 fashion show in ParisBy Alexandria Sage PARIS (Reuters) - Jean Paul Gaultier kicked off his haute couture show in Paris on Wednesday turning fashion on its head with a wedding gown - usually reserved as the final look - worn by a model with curlers in her hair. Set to a 1980s pop soundtrack that teased out Billy Idol's "White Wedding", the collection for Spring/Summer 2015 retained the French designer's characteristic humor and irreverence. Black satin, snakeskin, crinoline - all the mainstays of Gaultier's repertoire were mixed into this 61-look, mostly black and ivory collection that never felt trashy or out of date. The surprise finale was ex-supermodel Naomi Campbell wrapped up in what looked like shiny clear wrapping paper, a garland of orchids and ferns setting off the look.

Life-sized grey paper buds opened to reveal exotic multi-colored blooms, and clusters of oversized hand-stitched flowers hanging heavily from hems of coats, exploding from shoulders or swinging from full skirts cut below the knee. "The new cleavage is the stomach," Lagerfeld said of his 73-piece Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Oversized bouquets of flowers - whether in eclectic combinations of blue, crimson and pink, or tangerine and red - sprung from the shoulders of dresses in periwinkle silk, or red and orange.
