Chemical Abortion by Mail Is Cruelty to Women and Girls

The Biden-Harris Food and Drug Administration just gave the green light to abortion pills by mail. They are using the coronavirus pandemic as cover, even as people are getting vaccinated and things are opening up. It’s disingenuous and it is cruel.

I’ve heard this from multiple 17-year-old black girls in recent weeks. If you have a Black Lives Matter sign, can we agree that a pregnant girl should know what

Sustainable fashion: your guide to eco-aware shopping

‘Sustainable fashion’: a phrase common in today’s luxury parlance. But the popularity of a term doesn’t make it any easier to unpack. In fact, it makes it even more difficult to understand if a brand or retailer is operating from an environmentally-aware manufacturing perspective, or is greenwashing its production practices.

For today’s conscious consumer, the buzzwords around sustainability are becoming increasingly impenetrable, from circular economy to supply chains, traceability to carbon footprint, mycelium to micro plastics, regenerated to recycled. Not forgetting the host of conscious certifications used to to label garments (BCI, GOTS, Oekeo-Tex, Cradle to Cradle to name just

Target’s Latest Designer Collaboration Spotlights The Future of Fashion

No one understands the art of fashion collaboration better than Target. The retail giant has been introducing directional fashion to the masses since 1999 via limited-edition capsules with labels like Rodarte, Anna Sui, and Proenza Schouler. Affordable, accessible, and stylish, these collections have become a rite of passage for designers looking to break through to a broader audience. In the past, these partnerships were focused on one designer and their specific point-of-view, but today’s reveal of the second Designer Dress Collection takes the concept in a new direction. Instead of a single designer, three of the buzziest names of the
