Time and Fashion never stands still. Here are some of the latest happenings...

Armani/Dolci Armani's Latest Addition to Armani/Dolci

Chocolate indulgence; that describes Armani/Dolci. I'm talking about handmade chocolates, biscotti, cocoa and other mouth-watering delights that offer the signature taste of the Armani lifestyle.

That latest addition is a sugar-free treat in milk, extra dark and white chocolate ... Well technically, these treats are sweetened with maltitol, a natural low-calorie sugar substitute.

Gucci Launches the CHIME FOR CHANGE App

The app will help the campaign continue to unite, convene and strengthen the voices calling for change for girls and women, through Education, Health and Justice - the three key pillars of the CHIME FOR CHANGE campaign.

CHIME FOR CHANGE was founded by Frida Giannini of Gucci, Beyoncé and Selma Hayek-Pinault. It focuses on using innovative approaches to raise funds and awareness for its projects. To date, the organization has rallied support through a global concert event, a series of short documentary films, a range of technology-driven solutions, and by highlighting the stories of girls and women everywhere who want to see change. It has funded nearly 300 projects in more than 80 countries.
