FORBES: Upcycled Vintage Clothing And Accessories A Strong Trend At London Fashion Week February 2020
Sustainability is the buzzword in the fashion world today, with the majority of designers adopting eco-friendly practices. Some designers are going one step further by using existing materials or garments and repurposing them to create new clothing and accessory designs.

RENOVATION: How to incorporate the “Grandmillennial” Style into your Singapore Home?
No doubt the biggest takeaway from Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards show was that statement necklaces ruled the red carpet.
If you love the ever-popular bright, all-white interiors or you thrive on clean, minimalist looks, then Grandmillennial probably isn’t for you. A response to the somewhat boring and forgettable aesthetic that have become commonplace in our social feeds, Grandmillennial is an up-and-coming trend that pays homage to the past. It is at once comforting and familiar, yet by mixing in modern elements, it retains its relevance in today’s spaces. Read on to see if this new interior design trend is for you.
VERANDA: How to Flawlessly Style Antiques and Vintage Pieces Throughout Your Entire Home
Decorating with antiques comes from our innate need for a connection to the past, to believe in a story, and create a sense of history in the space we inhabit. So often, Saturday strolls lead to the local flea market or antiques store and then it happens—love at first sight strikes with a hidden treasure. Some are lucky enough to have antiques gifted from generations past, while others fancy themselves collectors, plundering through markets to find that perfect piece. Humans have a soft spot for things that have endured longer than themselves, and a well-crafted dresser or dining table will far outlive the fast-paced trends of today and tomorrow.
VOGUE: The Bride Wore All Vintage to Her Wedding at a Gilded Age Mansion in Newport
Growing up in New York City, actress Caroline Margaret Day and film executive Samson Day had been in the same room—at the same party or concert—probably a dozen times without knowing it. But they didn’t actually meet until freshman year of college, when they were set up by one of Caroline’s friends. “On our first date, we walked around Manhattan and snuck into a movie theater in Union Square for a late-night showing,” Caroline remembers. “We were 18—just kids—so all of our early dates were so sweet and innocent. We can’t walk around the city now without remembering something we did together in those early days—going to Mr. Softee, riding bikes on the West Side Highway, driving through the snowbanks when the city was shut down during a blizzard. In a way, we grew up together, which was not something we ever planned or imagined for our lives, but makes us feel like the luckiest people in the world.”
