We have a lot to cover. In this Roundup Vogue Prada Ariana Grande Uniqlo.
Vogue embraces the #BasicBitch [Racked]. The clothes were never the the disease – just the symptom. You’re still boring. Fashion Week is finally over. Diversity on the runway reported as improving but still pretty bad [Fashionista]. My dream of walking a runway just got a tad more attainable.
Tiny, tiny person Ariana Grande is accelerating the inevitable transformation from teen-pop idol to train wreck to …redemption? [Dlisted]
Prada reports slowing profit; cites weakening demand in Asia and Europe [B0F]. Meanwhile, Alibaba’s record IPO just created a new class of millionaires in China [NYT]. Prada marketing team does not read the news.
Uniqlo is offering full tuition to two Harvard Students (one at the business school, one in the design school) in exchange for a three-year internship at Uniqlo’s parent company Fast Fashion [TheCut].
