Project Runway winner Christian Siriano is designing a 15 piece collection for Puma. His first collection for Bluefly is set to be available starting July 2008.

Rapper LL Cool J is teaming up with Sears and designing a clothing line for young boys and girls.
"I was raised by a matriarch, I have a wife and three daughters, so I know what women are looking for when they shop for clothes. Clothes have to make a woman feel good, relaxed and sexy. We are going to be constantly looking at fine-tuning the fit and we'll get it right."

Armani and Emaar Properties signed an agreement in 2004, for Emaar Hotels to build and operate at least seven luxury hotels and three vacation resorts under the Armani name. Armani would be responsible for overseeing all aspects the interior design and style of the hotels. The initial hotel in Dubai is expected to be ready in early 2008. Source

Linday Lohan is the new face of Visa Swap campaign "An initiative to encourage Britain to donate unwanted designer and quality high-street clothes, bags and shoes to a shop in Covent Garden. Participants in the three-week-long initiative will be credited with points for their donations on a special card. These can then be redeemed against other garments in the store at the culmination of the campaign on July 19 and 20. All items which remain unswapped will be
donated to a clothing charity.

"The concept of swapping clothes, getting something for nothing and refreshing your wardrobe, appeals to everyone," explains the Mean Girls actress.Lindsay takes over as the face of the fundraising concept from last year's celebrity participant Mischa Barton." Source


YSL's ashes were scattered in Marrakesh, Morocco as per his wishes.

"The designer was born and raised in the then French colony of Algeria and found something familiar in Marrakesh when he and Berge arrived there in the late 1960s." Source

I love that Sirino is getting far in the fashion world. None of the other PR winners seemed to get very far after winning, he is the first one.

Emily said...

that jeweled headband is so pretty on her. i don't think i'd be as matchy-matchy as her coordinating my eye shadow, but she'll make a great spokeswoman.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

Miss Woo said...

I always think clothes swap is a fantastic idea as far as eco fashion goes. And out of topic, but I just noticed your Stupid Designer Item of the month, the Prada Cell phone is really funny!

CoutureCarrie said...

I kind of love that headband. LC is winning me over!

misia said...

swapping clothes, that's interesting;) but still there is no such thing in my country, sad, because I have a lot of clothes to be swaped:P

Dana (pron. like Donna) said...

Can you believe Lauren Conrad designed the incredible dress she's wearing?!?! I love it! And she isn't such a gifted designer in my opinion.

Secret Agent said...

LC is becoming more and more business-savvy. Maybe that's why she's a damn millionaire now. Not cool. Kristin Cavallari is probably kicking herself right now and crying for not doing a spinoff.

Danz said...

Eh, LC bores me to tears...I find it very hard to get even a little excited about anything she does.

Ediot said...

oh-clothesswapping is such a great thing- i do it via swapstyle- but i got tricked one time.. that wasn't fun at all..

said...

i think thats hauttte said...
