I think this is the first time I've run an item on fashion in this blog. But part of my mission is to help you stay on top of trends, so here goes:
While a generation of consumers has grown up wearing what's often referred to as "fast fashion" — trendy, inexpensive versions of runway looks that shoppers wear for one season, or one occasion, and often then toss out — many of these shoppers are graduating to a philosophy of quality not quantity, The Wall Street Journal says.
Designer Misha Nonoo, who is showing her latest collection during New York's Fashion Week, which runs from Sept. 4-11, says she wants customers to think about ways her new separates will work with clothes they already own.
Cuyana, a women's apparel and accessories brand, launched last year with the mantra "fewer, better."
Each season, Cuyana offers a few new pieces that revolve around a timeless, classic aesthetic rather than trends, says the WSJ. Best-selling items become a permanent offering.
For more on Fashion Week, there's this from The New York Times.
"What happens at fashion week will inform in large part the shape — literally — your identity will take six months from now," the Times advises.
