LOTUS - Fashion and Wine Bar Business:A theory of a new business concept in San Francisco Fashion Industry FELICIA YUWEI CHANG
In her controversial second book in the Fashion 2.0 series, Season of Change, serial entrepreneur Yuli Ziv analyzes major technology trends and forecasts their effect on the fashion industry. She questions why everyday objects such as clothes used by the entire human race see so little innovation. Her book, with a foreword by a visionary venture capitalist Lawrence Lenihan of FirstMark Capital, is a wakeup call to the outdated fashion industry. A must-listen for everyone involved in the business of fashion, from designers to company CEOs and marketers, Ziv´s bold predictions, sure to incite debate, address the future of the industry in multiple areas including consumer, branding, retail, product and lifestyle. Her goal is to provoke thought and foster innovation by challenging the status quo: from seasonal collections to pricing models; production and manufacturing; traditional advertising; trend forecasting; fashion week and more. She also offers up ideas for fellow entrepreneurs seeking to make their mark on the industry. Ziv highlights trends that brands need to consider in developing a successful strategy to navigate this new environment of constant change, including: the rise of group consciousness and crowd sourcing; the shift from search to discovery; the power of suggestion; the monetization of influence; personal style as a commodity; personalization; interaction and engagement; efficiencies; and data as the new retail currency. She takes a critical look at luxury brands, stating that innovation is slowly replacing heritage as the new attribute of luxury for the future. Inspired by innovation leaders like Ray Kurzweil, Ziv applies his Singularity theory to fashion by viewing it as part of the bigger change we are experiencing. Ziv proposes taking a page from the consumer electronics industry in her overview of new technologies: from smart fabrics to interactive retail, wearable tech and social tools. 1. Language: English.

The inspiring true story of how courage, a dream, and some needle and thread can change a life forever. Since she was young, Tala Raassi knew her fate lay in fashion. But growing up in her beloved homeland of Iran, a woman can be punished for exposing her hair in public, let alone wearing the newest trends. Despite strict regulations, Tala developed a keen sense of style in backroom cafes and secret parties. She never imagined her behavior would land her in prison or bring the cruel sting of a whip for the crime of wearing a mini-skirt. Tala´s 40 lashes didn´t keep her down - they fanned the flames of individuality and inspired her to embrace a new freedom in the United States. As she developed her own clothing label, her exploration into the creative, cutthroat community of Western fashion opened her eyes to the ups and downs of hard work, hard decisions, and hard truths. Fashion Is Freedom takes us on a journey that crosses the globe, from Colombia to Miss Universe, and inspires women everywhere to be fearless. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tala Raassi.

When Mrs Pankhurst stormed the House of Commons with her crack squad of militant suffragettes in 1908, she wore on her hat a voluptuous purple feather. This is the intriguing story behind that feather. Twelve years before the suffragette movement began dominating headlines, a very different women´s campaign captured the public imagination. Its aim was radical: to stamp out the fashion for feathers in hats. Leading the fight was a character just as heroic as Emmeline Pankhurst but with opposite beliefs. Her name was Etta Lemon, and she was antifashion, antifeminist - and antisuffrage. Mrs Lemon has been forgotten by history, but her mighty society lives on. Few today are aware that Britain´s biggest conservation charity, the RSPB, was born through the determined efforts of a handful of women, led by the indomitable Mrs Lemon. While the suffragettes were slashing paintings and smashing shop windows, Etta Lemon and her local secretaries were challenging ´murderous millinery´ all the way up to Parliament. This gripping narrative explores two singular heroines - one lionised, the other forgotten - and their rival, overlapping campaigns. Moving from the feather workers´ slums to the highest courtly circles, from the first female political rally to the first forcible feeding, Mrs Pankhurst´s Purple Feather is a unique journey through a society in transformation. This is a highly original story of women stepping into the public sphere, agitating for change - and finally finding a voice. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tessa Boase.

Draping is a technique that involves working with fabric directly on the mannequin. This allows the designer to start out from an idea that can change as the design of the piece progresses. In this process, creative freedom plays a more important and less rigid role than patterns and drawings on paper do. This publication is an essential guide for students and fashion professionals who want to delve deeper into this technique used by big industry names such as Issey Miyake, Margela, Therry Mugler, Iris van Herpen and many others. Focusing on a range of subjects, from the required tools and different examples of designs to the steps to be followed in creating jackets, skirts and dresses as well as more specific details, this book offers everything that readers need to learn the principles of draping step by step and have a solid basis for making their own creations without limiting their creativity.
