Marc Jacobs Returns to the Runway | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

American fashion’s greatest showman returned to the runway on Monday, an optimistic sign not only for a weakened New York fashion industry but also for his business, which is turning around after years of struggles.

A mostly maskless crowd of about 100 guests (proof of vaccination was required) were in attendance for Marc Jacobs’ first runway show since February 2020, which took place inside the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

“While the world continues to change with unimaginable speed, my love for fashion, the desire to create and share collections through this delivery system — the runway — endures,” wrote Jacobs in the show notes.

As lawmakers take up forfeiture reform, local police say current safeguards are enough | News

As police reform continues to be a hot button issue, State Auditor Julie Blaha took to the Capitol this week to discuss the “big story in the small numbers” with legislators: forfeitures.

“In 2019, the average size of a forfeiture under $1,500 was $473,” Blaha said. “While having a minimal financial benefit to the public safety system, to a Minnesotan this could mean the difference between making rent and experiencing homelessness.”

Blaha argued at legislative hearings this week that forfeitures do not seem to be disrupting crime, but local law enforcement in Rice and Steele counties disagree with Blaha’s stance.

This comes after an Italian brand confirmed that they had used the Princess Royal’s extended history of outfits as inspiration for their latest collection. Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed the new unexpected “style icon”.

Ms Bowie told listeners: “My high this week has been the revelation that Princess Anne is a muse for the Serafini fashion house.

“We know that obviously, Diana is a style icon, but so is Anne.

“She’s all over the Pre-Fall 2021 mood board for this Italian fashion house called ‘Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini’, which I’m unfamiliar with.

“The collection even nods to Anne’s equestrian days, what she wore to Royal Ascot in the 80s, some of her evening wear.”
