Italian Couture is Jackie O, Latest Sale Week 20012020

Italian Couture is Jackie O, Latest Sale Week 20012020. This week Latest Sale reports from the Business Directory and highlights Italian couture. Celebrated personalities often seek to wear an eminent Italian designer’s original creation to high profile events. This is evident from history.

West Side Story Fashion: Then vs. Now Latest Sale Week 25112019

The Business Directory team highlights West Side Story Fashion: Then vs. Now. Musical theatre enthusiasts will be familiar with the 1961 film adaptation of West Side Story, the classic Romeo and Juliet styled musical retold through the lens of the 1950’s New York City street gangs.

This look was chosen for the movie not only because it represented the fashion during the 1950’s, but also because they were easy…

Moncler— the Epitome of Innovation, Latest Sale Week 30092019

This week the Latest Sale team reports from the Business Directory and uncovers Moncler, the epitome of innovation. Did you know that Moncler did not begin as a high-end fashion brand, designing premium quality quilter jackets? Back then, they exclusively produced quilted sleeping bags, tents with an external flysheet, and a telescopic structure, and a lined hooded cape. Later, the brand expanded its collection, adding the first down jacket, marketed towards fashion conscious workers. When a French mountaineer noticed the down jacket, this led to the brand’s rebirth. Their evolution timeline saw them go from creating camping gear and down jackets for workers to quilter jackets for trendsetters including Will Smith.   Images (Moncler Daniel menswear collection) courtesy of Moncler
