Fashion retailer H&M’s Q2 profit down 11 percent amid challenging markets and krona strength
The Burberry Prorsum menswear runway show, which has been on Milan’s fashion week calendar for as long as we can remember, took place in London on Tuesday, with chief creative officer Christopher Bailey showing the spring and summer 2014 collection at Kensington Gardens.

Sales for the quarter slipped marginally to 31.64 billion kronor from 31.66 billion.

Sorry, Fashion Apps, Here Are hello kitty jewerly 7 Apps Fashionistas Would Actually Use
Which is all to say that the May 27 launch of NYC’s CitiBike bike share program and accompanying app for iOS and Android (showing bike locations, availability and routes) is big news for fashionistas without their own wheels.
