Gigi Hadid announces her fashion line
Supermodel Gigi Hadid took to Instagram earlier this week to announce her very own upcoming fashion line — Guest in residence. While we are unaware of the release date, images shared by the star gave us a glimpse into what we can expect. The collection seems to be a line of knitwear featuring slouchy silhouettes and various colours. We can’t wait for the launch with luxury news updates like this.
Masaba Gupta launches a new beauty collection LoveChild
Fresh off the success of her Netflix show Masaba Masaba, in it’s second season, Masaba Gupta, designer, actor, and entrepreneur has launched her first cosmo-wellness beauty brand, LoveChild. Inspired by the freedom that comes with self-expression, the brand is an ode to the designer’s childhood, and her vision to marry beauty and wellness. The brand will also be accompanied by a wellness blog giving insights into the vast subject matter of beauty. The newly released range offers makeup and skincare essentials packed in the signature Masaba design aesthetic — quirky, bold and colourful. You can expect to find an eclectic range of rich lip colours in the form of bullet & liquid lipsticks, nail paints, face mists, intimate wipes and calming oils distilled with time-tested techniques. The colours of the lipsticks are enriched with oils and suited for brown skintones. The founder Masaba Gupta explained, “LoveChild as a term has been weaved into my destiny ever since I was born, and now it’s time to weave that destiny into a brand. For many years I’ve looked at this term negatively so I thought it was time to make it positive with a brand that would resonate with individuals who have been labelled all their lives too.”
Issey Miyake passes away at 84
The fashion designer was awarded France’s Legion of Honour, the highest French order of merit in 2016, and the founder of the namesake label. He was famed for his iconic pleated style of clothing and also produced the signature black turtleneck of friend and Apple Inc founder Steve Jobs. On August 9, the designer passed away at the age of 84.
