• The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Sessilee Lopez Talks About The Moment She Knew She Made It, Christian Louboutin Makes Shoes From Garbage, And Zara Will start Selling Online in September

    Sessilee Lopez recounted to Women’s Wear Daily the moment she knew she “made it.”

    She says,“…One day, I got recognized when I was back home by some, like, thugged-out, gangster dude. And I was like, ‘Wait, how does this guy know about me? He’s not in fashion.’ But he said, ‘You’re the girl from here who made it. You made it! Know that! Own that!’ He took a picture on his phone and said, ‘I’m going to put this on Facebook.'” When the thugs know who you are, you’re truly somebody. (WWD)

    • Starting September 7, you too can buy expensive designer knockoffs from Zara‘s e-commerce site. (Fashionista)

    • Got an extra $1,095 to throw away (no pun intended) on garbage? Christian Louboutin has some rather questionable eco-friendly slingback pumps made from “pieces of thread, postage stamps, scribbled notes, leftover sequins, and fabric swatches from seasons past” for your wearing pleasure. Hmm… And no, I will not make a Zoolander joke, though I am tempted. (The Gloss)

    • House of Deréon will unleash the “city jungle” at Selfridges in London this September. (NYDN)

    • Because all awful trends need to be perpetuated, Newark-based denim company Sagz has created a pair of jeans with built-in boxers. Thank you, Sagz, prison chic is a look that should never die. (NYDN)
