London-based fashion designer Duro Olowu has just set up shop in New York City through a pop-up art and fashion gallery for the next month. The show, currently at Salon 94′s Freeman Alley Gallery, displays an array of both Duro’s Spring 2012 designs as well as a vast collection of art, textiles, photographs, and other objets trouves gathered by Duro throughout his many travels.

The opening reception for Duro Olowu’s Materials was held last Wednesday, February 8th, as dozens of guests entered the colorful gallery to gander at the intricate pieces and decor that make up Duro’s creative inspiration. Nestled alongside Duro’s worldly treasures, were a few pieces from his exquisite Spring 2012 collection. Paneled tail coats, colorful chiffon gowns, and hand-made footwear fit right in next to the exotic photographs, jewelry, furniture, and books. Read More

We don’t often think about food when we think of fashion and models. If anything, we usually think quite the opposite, as in avoidance of food. These same thoughts have led to much criticism in the fashion industry for overly-thin models and eating disorders. Pressure from the fashion industry, inappropriate food choices, and unavailability of good food options during fashion shows lead to poor eating by models, says Isabella Rossellini’s model daughter, Elettra Wiedemann. This is why Wiedemann is launching a pop-up restaurant for four days during NY Fashion Week at Robert’s Restaurant at the Museum of Arts and Design from February 11th to 14th.

According to Daily Mail UK, the pop-up named Goodness was started by Elettra in order to “accentuate the importance of mentors and maintaining balance when it comes to outside interests,” including her own interest of proper nutrition and health. The pop-up will feature 4 top chefs, including Mario Batali, Leo Forneas of Robert, Alain Allegretti of La Promenade des Anglais and Julian Medina of Toloache, serving up cuisines from Italian to Mexican.

Case in point: Brittany My Linh Vu; a spit-fire personality and budding fashion designer from Charlotte, North Carolina.  Read More
