In anticipation of next month's official LA Fashion Week runway shows, organizers have released insight into the theme of the event – cultural diversity – and previewed some of the designers that will show.
The New Orleans Museum of Art has opened a new costume exhibit, A Queen Within - Adorned Archetypes, featuring rare exclusive experimental pieces designed by Alexander McQueen, as well as other luxury houses.
Luxury department store Harvey Nichols has seen rising conversion rates after putting an improved online merchandising strategy in place encouraging visitors to spend more time on its e-store and to explore it further.
New York-based label Mansur Gavriel has opened its first brick-and-mortar boutique on the West Coast on Melrose Place in West Hollywood. The new boutique offers the label's ready-to-wear, a cafe, and a florist on site.
With big industry names, celebrities, and grand runway events from Moncler and Tommy Hilfiger, not to mention Versace's double anniversary, Milan Fashion Week, which starts this Tuesday, promises to be action-packed.

The collection was a gloomy assemblage, a mood deepened by the memorial service soundtrack and the glum expressions of the cast. Which, again, made absolutely no sense as the inspiration was the great Fred Astaire.
