The Frye Festival Scam, NYFW Edition

The 2019 Grammys

This past Sunday we celebrated the biggest night in music. For the Working Girls, I am sure we all spent this night in the house watching. Big thanks to Cardi B, H.E.R, & Childish Gambino for wins Sunday night. Grammy host, Alicia Keys, did an amazing job and even bought out the First Lady Michelle Obama.

Most important is the fashion, check out some of the looks of the night:

The Strategic Philipp Plein FW19 show

With Fashion month continuing, one designer had it a bit rough. Goes to show that even celebs get scammed. The Philipp Plein “Black Tie” show for #NYFW was supposed to feature Kanye West. That didn’t happen. Contracts were signed and money was exchanged but no Kanye. This was not Kanye’s fault, he wasn’t even aware of this performance. According to Fashionista.com, this was not it. Not only did they promise a three course meal but they didn’t have enough room to service everyone.

“While everyone invited was under the impression it was a seated dinner, there was seating for, at most, two-thirds of the guests”

Take a look at the collection, VERY HYPE-BEAST

Victoria Beckham’s New Beauty Collection

It was announced this past week that Victoria Beckham Beauty will debut this Fall. This is not something new for the brand who tapped into the beauty world with a Estee Lauder this past year.

Check out the announcement below:

Gucci Solution to Blackface Scandal

This is not news anyone but just plain disrespectful. This is another time a luxury house has made this mistake, but can you call it a mistake? Gucci released a black face themed sweater and as we all know the world reacted. The real question is did they not think that people would react? Whatever! After the world reacted, and Dapper Dan intervened Gucci has come up with a solution to improve the design process:

  • Alessandro Michele would personally be involved in hiring a new design staff. (He is the creative director so shouldn’t he have already been doing this??)

  • Gucci will be adding a new position, Global Director for Diversity & Inclusion, based in the New York Office (In 2019, this wasn’t already done?)

Kind of over this and the situation and I will really breakdown what all of this in a future article.
