    Updated: 11 hr ago

    PARIS (AP) — Designer Alexander Wang will leave the helm of Balenciaga after three years as creative director, the Paris fashion house confirmed Friday. Wang will present his last womenswear collection for Balenciaga at the ready-to-wear Paris shows this October. The announcement confirmed rumors that the company would not renew its contract with the 31-year-old American designer, who launched an eponymous label as a teen but has had little time to make an enduring impression at the fashion house that once dressed Spanish aristocrats. Neither Balenciaga nor Wang explained the split. Wang's tenure saw good sales, but the New-York based designer hinted in the Balenciaga statement that he wants to take his own brand "to its ne

    Updated: Sat, Jul 18, 2015

    MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Swimsuits are taking Miami Beach by storm on the third day of Swim Week.

Organizers said next year's swim fashion will feature eclectic prints, bright details and even long sleeve tops. The event ends July 21.

  • Teen inspires Nike to make a shoe for people with disabilities

    Published: Wed, Jul 15, 2015

    In some ways Florida teenager Matthew Walzer is a lot like any other 19-year-old. He’s obsessed with sports, particularly basketball, and is particularly fond of basketball shoes. That’s where the similarities end, because while he may be particularly fond of them, Walzer isn’t able to put shoes on himself; he was born with cerebral palsy, and as the disease has advanced he has had to enlist the help of relatives and others to complete relatively every day tasks like putting on shoes, USA TODAY reports. That’s what inspired Walzer, now a college sophomore but then a 16-year-old high school junior at Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Fla., to reach out to Nike with a simple question: “Can you help?”

  • Menswear aims for attention at first NY Men's Fashion Week

    Updated: Thu, Jul 9, 2015

    NEW YORK (AP) — Ladies, step aside — just a little. The men are craving a bit of the spotlight. In the world of U.S. fashion, women's clothes tend to get most of the glory. But the industry is aiming to change that, one chic skinny suit at a time. Next week, New York welcomes its first ever stand-alone Fashion Week for men. This isn't new outside the U.S. — Europe's fashion capitals have been holding men's fashion weeks for years. But in New York, menswear has been tacked onto the much higher-profile women's collections shown in September and February, making it seem like a much less glamorous, er, little brother, as well as putting it out of sync with the market schedule for men's clothes.
