Fashion News, Events and My Two Cents

Georgina Chapman
Georgina Chapman, founder of the fashion label Marchesa, is partnering with Canon and director Ron Howard for the first photography-inspired film festival, Project Imagination. Chapman, along with actors Eva Longoria and Jamie Foxx, will direct short films inspired by Canon consumers' photograph submissions. This should be very interesting. I like the idea of getting a fresh perspective from leaders in other crafts.

Tia Cibani left Ports 1961 to start her own line. I have been a fan of Ports for some time. I love their commitment to exploring new design techniques ... I have a few Ports tops that I reach for often. I look forward to seeing Tia's debut collection.


The iTunes Music Festival kicks off on September 1st with Usher. The month-long event will feature emerging artists, along with headliners including Nora Jones, Lana Del Rey, Matchbox Twenty, Andrea Bocelli, Labrinth, Emeli Sandé, Mumford and Sons, Pink, Bat for Lashes, Calvin Harris, Ed Sheeran, David Guetta and more. I love that you can watch the live stream on your mobile device. Last year, I momentarily forgot where I was and basically brought my former employer's internet server to a standstill for a sec. What can I say? ... The music was good.
