Givenchy to Unveil New Designer Debut at Paris Fashion Week | Business News

By THOMAS ADAMSON, AP Fashion Writer

PARIS (AP) — Storied maison Givenchy is set to unveil new designer Matthew Williams’ debut collection Sunday, although the brand may have hoped such a big new beginning would have come under better days and not under the virus-hit Paris Fashion Week.

Like Milan before it, Paris is undertaking an unusual fashion season for Spring-Summer 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. The nine-day calendar is flitting between 16 ready-to-wear runway collections with masked guests in seated rows, 20 in-person presentations and several dozen completely digital shows streamed online with promotional videos.

Here are some highlights:

The revamped house of the late, great couturier Elsa Schiaparelli has been on a creative rollercoaster since launching some years ago as couture, going through several creative directors in a short time, and now presenting ready-to-wear. The latest designer Daniel Roseberry has, on the whole, been given a warm

Couple who quit their jobs strive to be the best second hand designer retailer in Australia

A young couple from Australia have spoken how they quit their full-time corporate office jobs to pursue their own business selling luxury pre-owned designer handbags online.

Business booms for Shropshire-based brand designer after good turn

G Sabini-Roberts runs brand design agency Gina.Design, based in Oswestry, and earlier this year offered businesses a free online group challenge to adapt their brand during lockdown, followed by individual video calls at no cost. Around 80 people got involved in the challenge and 30 business owners took up the chance to discuss their brand over a video call.

G also runs a Facebook group to support business owners and entrepreneurs. The Brand Hacks group is a space for questions, conversation and sharing on all things branding where Gina and her co-host, Sarah Raanan, regularly post tips, ideas and other free content.

After a spring and early summer supporting others in such ways, and despite the challenges of the year, Gina.Design has emerged to be more successful than ever. Wife Ruth joined the business a year ago to manage the admin and finance – and seven freelancers and consultants are

Cherokee County designer turns ‘cuckoo’ business plan into reality

It wouldn’t be an insult to call Jodie Davis a little “cuckoo” — after all, these days, the iconic sound of a cuckoo clock is practically her calling card.

“I call them boxes of joy,” she says, gesturing to a wall lined with her whimsical creations.

Davis is the owner of The American Cuckoo Clock Company, based out of Cherokee County.  The renowned quilter — known for writing more than 30 books and hosting popular television shows on the subject — first got the idea to design her own cuckoo clocks while shooting a television show in Switzerland.  Her initial vision — to design the clocks and have them manufactured in Germany — proved a longer process than Davis anticipated, and she decided

From Fashion Week To False Imprisonment, Black Designer Elle B. Mambetov Has Been Through It All

In 2016, all of Elle Mambetov’s dreams were finally coming true. She was one of London Fashion Week’s fastest-rising stars and, after just two seasons in the limelight, her womenswear label—Elle B Zhou—was tipped as one to watch.

When three police officers turned up to arrest her that November, however, the dream turned into a nightmare.

At the time, Mambetov was coming off her most successful London Fashion Week showcase to date. She had secured sponsorships from Toni and Guy, Evian and a feature on Vogue. “That accomplishment was huge,” she says. “It was so far from my first London Fashion Week catwalk showcase, where I did a deal with a former dragon from Dragon’s Den [the UK equivalent of Shark Tank], only to be

Wedding dress designer turns an industry in free-fall into an opportunity to give back during COVID-19

For Adrienn Braun, early March was a rude awakening.

How this wedding dress designer saved her business during COVID-19’s wedding downturn



“Brides just started calling me and said, ‘Hey, we canceled the wedding,’” the bridal fashion designer says. “It was one call, two calls, three calls.”

Her business, Adrienn Braun Bridal and Fashion Studio, based in Hoboken, New Jersey, was badly impacted. Balances were not paid in full, consultations got canceled, and brides began asking for less elaborate dresses for smaller-scale, backyard weddings. Many of her plans to custom-design dresses turned into alterations – a fraction of the price she earns to design from scratch.

SoftBank Said to Be Near Deal to Sell British Chip Designer Arm

SoftBank’s deal in July 2016 for Arm, and its ambitions, were par for the course for Mr. Son. Months later, he unveiled SoftBank’s $100 billion Vision Fund, which was tasked with buying stakes in promising start-ups across the tech landscape, from Uber to WeWork to a company that used robots to make pizzas.

But those bets have not quite played out the way he has expected.

The Vision Fund later drew criticism for paying top dollar for sometimes questionable start-ups, contributing to a nearly $13 billion annual loss for SoftBank in the fiscal year that ended March 31. (The conglomerate said that the Vision fund has since returned to profitability as of June.)

And Arm has not quite turned out to be the home run that SoftBank had expected, with relatively stagnant sales growth and an inability to take a significant share in the internet-of-things market.

SoftBank began months ago

How this Ohio designer relaunched her business after a five-year break

The 50 States Project is a yearlong series of candid conversations with interior designers, state by state, about how they’ve built their businesses. Today, we’re chatting with Dublin, Ohio–based Julie Paulino, founder of Julie Paulino Design, about finding clients and community through local cultural events, how she found her confidence as a designer, and the role of her blog as a portfolio builder and early digital design destination.

What made you want to become a designer?

I think it started when I was child, though of course I didn’t know it back then. I remember that my mom had very nice midcentury furniture, and my aunt had nice furniture upholstered in chintz. I think I absorbed those things—and coming from the Dominican Republic, there is that influence: shingled homes, jute and rattan. I was also always fascinated by any kind of home improvement, but I grew up not
