Airport Essentials Ready for Take Off!

Posted by TESSA HALL

Let’s face it, we are all ready to get as far away from home as humanly possible! With COVID-19 restrictions lifting across the globe, two (or three) shots of the vaccine in our arms, and a savings account that screams, “I’ve been staying home for the past two years!”, the world is ready for travel again! And we’re not just talking about a weekend away in a charming town in our state, province, or surrounding area. We’re talking about jet setting to a warmer climate. Escaping to a destination unknown. Globetrotting to a far away land. Embarking on a transatlantic voyage…you get the point.

SEVENTY FIVE YEARS OF THE HOUSE OF DIOR

SEVENTY FIVE YEARS OF THE HOUSE OF DIOR

Posted by DARINA GRANIK

February 12, 1947 was the day when a new modern fashion era began - on this day Christian Dior presented his first collection with a Bar suit as his signature design. It was christened “The New Look” by American journalist and editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Carmel Snow. This look marked a new post-war era in fashion and Christian Dior’s legacy is alive today more than ever. To commemorate 75 years from the premier of The New Look and founding of the House of Dior, we will discuss designer’s story and artistry, innovations and collaborations, iconic looks and products, and his everlasting fashion heritage.

It’s no longer a surprise, or a trend, or a niche for corporate fashion brands to get on board with sustainability efforts. Many would argue it’s gone into hyperdrive, and honestly, we love to see it! Of course, these efforts come after years and years of experts shouting from the rooftops that we can no longer avoid climate change. It's already having it’s devastating and tangible impacts on many parts of the world. 

Although this is grim news, there are real positive strides being taken by the fashion industry, as they are the second most polluting industry in the world after oil.
