Paris, France
Haute couture is only made possible due to the creative skill and technical ability of a tiny group of international craftsmen and women living in Paris: Les Petites Mains (translated as ‘little hands,’ in its usage the term connotes fairy-like levels of dexterity). Witness how the guardians of centuries old craftsmanship translate Maria Grazia Chiuri’s vision as BoF takes you into the @Dior ateliers.

Milan, Italy
Donatella Versace's salute to her late brother reanimated Gianni's greatest hits in such a way that the new generation could at least grasp some sense of their exuberant "don’t-give-a-damn" quality.It’s been twenty years since the murder of her brother, and those decades have been a very public journey for Donatella, through every self-flagellating stage of mourning, anger, denial, ravening insecurity and, finally, acceptance. “I never had the courage to go there before,” she admitted backstage before the show, as she reflected on a collection which marked Versace’s darkest day with an uplifting celebration of everything her brother accomplished.Read Tim Blanks' full review of the collection now on businessoffashion.com [Link in bio] #versace #donatellaversace #mfw #fashion #runway #style | © instagram.com/bof

Milan, Italy
Donatella Versace's latest collection is a tribute to the life and work of her brother Gianni, who passed away 20 years ago. "It would be impossible to commemorate Gianni's entire world in a single collection, therefore I have decided to honour his legacy with his beloved prints and dazzling metal mesh," her show notes read. Supermodels Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen and Carla Bruni - who had already worked with the late designer - also graced the runway today. Stay tuned for all images and Tim Blanks' review of the collection. #versace #donatellaversace #gianniversace #mfw #ss18 📷: @kevintachman | © instagram.com/bof

On some random night thirty years ago, Claudia Schiffer was a pathologically shy teenager living in the suburbs of Dusseldorf. The Schiffers had visitors in town, and entertainment was called for. The local pub wasn’t going to cut it, so the decision was made to head into the city to a nightclub. Claudia had never been to such a place before. But there, while she was dancing, she met destiny, in the form of a model scout who wasn’t even supposed to be in the club that night.Thirty years into her career, the supermodel speaks exclusively to BoF's Tim Blanks about her journey from shy teen to industry icon.

For today’s #ThrowbackThursday moment, we look back at this Grazia cover image from 1968, featuring two Missoni looks. This week, Angela Missoni celebrates 20 years at the helm of her family’s fabled fashion house. She took over from her mother Rosita as creative director in 1997, debuting her first collection for the brand.

Millennials, Post-Millennials, Gen-Y, Gen-Z... without losing sight of their specific traits, let’s collectively refer to these demographic cohorts as “Generation Next.” Taken together, they are expected to account for 45% of the global market for personal luxury goods by 2025. How can the fashion industry win them over?While it might not come as a surprise to you that 96% own a smartphone, did you expect 63% to say they still buy print magazines once or twice a month? In a bespoke survey conducted by BoF, 81% also considered craftsmanship to be important and said they see purchasing a luxury item as an investment they can pass down to the next generation.For more data insights, discover our full analysis now on businessoffashion.com [Link in bio] #fashion #data #insight | © instagram.com/bof

Forget about fidget spinners. The real key to unlocking the mystery of Gen-Z is sodium tetraborate... and a bit of white glue. No, these are not the makings of a DIY smoke bomb. Instead, when mixed together, these two ingredients bloom into a slime: a stretchy, sticky glob that kids aged six to 16 (okay, maybe 15) happily obsess over. Search for “slime” on YouTube and you’ll generate 16.6 million results.Every generation gloms onto a fad—or three—in its youth. For nineties kids, it was slap bracelets; in the aughts, there were Pokémon cards. The fact that Gen-Z is into something so personal, which costs almost nothing to make, speaks volumes about their values. The generation preceding these slime slingers is nearly as mysterious. To better understand the hive mind of Milliennials, simply ask one of them if he or she maintains a Finstagram — a private, secret-to-most account where the owner can post scenes from “real” life.Who. Are. These. People? And how can the fashion industry win them over?

This season, London Fashion Week was met with activism on a much bigger scale than usual, with anti-fur protests outside Burberry, Gareth Pugh and the British Fashion Council’s show space. The protests to some extent reopened the debate on whether fur has a place within the fashion industry — especially when retail giants including Yoox Net-a-Porter and Selfridges have stopped selling fur altogether.
