• Some critics were not feeling Jeremy Scott‘s first offerings as creative director of Moschino, and it looks like the displeasure has extended to actual McDonald’s employees, who say the yellow-and-red pieces emblazoned with modified versions of the fast food’s famed golden arches is an insult to their profession. Knowing someone will pay $1,000 for clothing inspired by McDonald’s workers who earn minimum wage is a mockery,” former Mickey D’s employee Mia Brusendorff told The Daily Mail. Most people who work at McDonald’s certainly couldn’t afford one of the collection’s $750 sweaters, much less the now sold-out $1,265 red quilted purse. “I know the poor environment a minimum wage employee works in, and for people working in the highly paid fashion world to think it’s ‘trendy’ to wear clothes inspired by the uniforms we put on every day to feed our kids, or to buy a designer bag that is a parody of the meals we serve to earn enough money just to pay our bills; well, it just makes me sad,” she said. “I couldn’t buy one of these Moschino purses even if I wanted to.” Neither could I! As someone who works in the fashion world, I’m wondering where she’s getting her information that most industry people are “highly paid.” I would say many of the people going to, reviewing these shows, and styling the pieces for editorials can’t afford a $1,265-dollar purse either, especially one that doesn’t go with every outfit. One look at this survey on how much fashion industry people get paid would tell her that. While most people aren’t getting paid minimum wage, many of these editors and it-girls get their designer duds for free. So, while I can understand her frustration, it’s not like all fashion folk are rolling in dough–plenty of people in the fashion industry are struggling, many being paid just as much or even less than McDonald’s employees, and they’re still expected to dress like trendy baronesses. But that’s just my opinion. What do you think? (Daily Mail)

 

The Santigolden Age Smashbox

Smashbox tapped indie artist Santigold for a limited edition color cosmetics collection, “The Santigolden Age.” Inspired by the artist’s vision of a post-2012 utopia in which humans, aliens, earth, and the stars co-exist peacefully, the color cosmetics range includes a 5-shade eyeshadow palette, nail polish strips, lip gloss, a Swarovski crystal-encrusted lipstick ring and a double-ended eyeliner. Smashbox will also release a shoppable behind-the-scenes video for the collection, which will lead you directly to the Santigolden Age homepage when you click the rotating carousel of items at the bottom of the vid. Looks pretty cool! Think you’ll be buying? (Fashion Bomb Inbox)

 

Kendall Jenner Chanel Fall 2014

• It’s safe to say, I think, that Kendall Jenner has officially been embraced by the fashion community at large. The reality starlet’s cemented her position as a *serious* model during fashion month, walking for Giles, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, and now, Chanel. (Style.com)

 

Folorunsho Alakija
• More women than can be counted as billionaires, according to Forbes  magazine’s 28th list, which names a total of 172 women, which is 25% more than were listed last year. Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, is amongst the world’s richest women with her fortune of $1.05 billion, as well as Nigerian oil tycoon, Folorunsho Alakija, who makes her debut on the list with her $2.5 billion-dollar fortune. Still, only 32 of these women are self-made, while the rest inherited their money from their husbands or families. Baby steps! (Forbes)

 


• Can someone please explain what happened here? Anna Wintour attended today’s Valentino Fall 2014 show, but if you were looking for her in her usual front row spot, you couldn’t find her. Why? Because the legendary editrix was seated in the second row, right behind her colleague Grace Coddington. Is it opposite day? Are we in an alternate universe? How does the most important person in the fashion industry lose her front row seat? (Fashionista)

 

Pharrell Williams Uniqlo

Pharrell Williams is doing it all these days! The top-notch producer is launching a line in collaboration with Uniqlo and his “I am OTHER” creative collective, which will include hats and t-shirts for men and women. Pharrell will appear in Uniqlo ads for their UT Spring 2014 collection, and a commercial for the range will be released in April, featuring a song from Williams’ s new album G I R L. Catch the range in stores come mid-April. (Fashion Bomb Inbox)

    I saw that picture of Anna Wintour floating around on Instagram and died with laughter, maybe a slip up with the seating charts?

    I can’t take Kendall serious, her walk is terrible and she needs to work on her face, she just looks lost…

  2. mc0728 says:

    I think Kendal looks great. Shes got tht spaced out dumb look all models have lol. The jeremy scott drama is stupid. Its art but of course theres always somebody unhappy to take it where it doesnt need to go.

  3. KS says:

    I do understand why the McDonald’s employees would feel upset once I read the entire explanation however, art can not always be created with every subset and classification of people’s feeling in mind. That would be pretty stifling. And I think Kendall looks like a model. Congrats to her for developing a legitimate modeling career.

  4. Georgia says:

    What was quoted above was “the highly paid fashion world,” not “everyone in the fashion world is highly paid. Big difference. No one would ever say “the highly paid fast food service industry” because that’s an oxymoron. It’s dismaying when people who could stand in solidarity with workers instead take umbrage over semantics. It’s not a coincidence that we have the greatest disparity between rich and poor since the 1920s, and to be bracketed by an article about billionaires? I know this isn’t a political blog, but poor taste, indeed.

    ^Agrees with Georgia

  6. lolani says:

    Mr Mcdowell from coming to america should sue him lol j/k

  7. Shayla says:

    If you ask me, Anna W can have several seats, several rows back! As far as Kendall, I’m very happy for her. Many of us wish we could be included in some of the FASHION circles she’s able to. Get the $$$!

  8. bhud says:

    Completely agree with @georgina! Jihan… I love your writing and your blogging voice is clear and defined however, you completely missed an opportunity to align some valid points with those of the fast food industry. The biggest difference to me is that most people who work at fast food places do so because of a lack of options whereas people willfully choose to work in the fashion industry; they want to be running around design houses faking the funk.

  9. lola says:

    McDonald workers need to sit their a*ses down, all the way down. Everybody wants a controversy. Pick a fight with your bosses and the MCKEY D executives, not with artists interpreting art.

    @ Georgia and Bhud
    Both of you get a “SIT DOWN” for your blatant ignorance. Coming at Jihan is way out of line. Should artists now be prevented from using their creative abilities on anything that is remotely linked an underpaid workforce? If that is the case then let’s also go after designers using ankara/West African fabrics. Most of the African women making those fabrics are even worse off than McDonald workers. I don’t see you attacking the American designers using those fabrics. Let’s also go after H&M and Zara and everyone that using Chinese of Salvadorian or Indian or Pakistani labor. We all know that their paychecks are way way less than what McDonald workers get.

    Jeremy Scott did not use the logo to mock the workers. He is using it creatively — making a statement on culture. His business is high-end so obviously his clientele is high end. Artists should not be forbidden to be themselves because they make money. Why don’t you go to museums and protest about all those paintings depicting rural life or ordinary citizens? Are the artists not also making a lot of money for their paintings? Criticize them too.

    I simply cannot stand blatant ignorance.
    SIT ALL THE WAY DOWN.

  10. Ki says:

    It was actually reported by Bryan Boy (who was there)that Anna Wintour sat in the second row because the front row was too crowded…apparently she was asked to sit in the front row, but declined, leaving that to her editors…

  11. Ki says:

    As for Kendall…Riccardo Tisci and Karl Lagerfeld are “friends” of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, so there’s that to think of…IMO she looks more like a commercial model…

    Love the Moschino sweater.
