Youth Commission fashion show teaches professional outfit do’s and don’ts | News

Crowds of students learned about potential job paths on March 9 at the Galt Joint Union High School District Career Fair, and a Youth Commission-organized fashion show gave tips on how to dress for those jobs and interviews.

Teens from the Galt Youth Commission and the Rotary-affiliated Interact Club modeled outfits that are appropriate in professional environments and ones that aren’t, to help students give the best possible impression for future job prospects.

Commissioner Josh Cullers emceed in an Evel Knievel-style costume — what not to wear for a job interview, but great for grabbing attention in the crowded Galt High School gym.

“We would walk. We would model. We got a lot of claps, a lot of applause,” Commission Chair Alexa Murillo Cuevas said after the show.

“We wanted to show them (the students) what is the best attire so that they can be successful in all their endeavors,

What’s Next for the Fashion System? | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

Last spring, as fashion brands announced pandemic-driven furloughs and store closures, Saint Laurent released a dramatic statement. The Kering-owned luxury brand planned to “take control of its pace and reshape its schedule” by abandoning the calendar of runway shows that had formed a key part of the luxury fashion business model for decades. Freed from this system, the brand said it would create its collections “with an up-to-date perspective, driven by creativity.”

The decision made waves far beyond Paris and fuelled a debate that had been growing in the industry ever since the rise of globalisation and the mainstreaming of the internet triggered questions on whether it still made sense to present collections via traditional runway shows, bundled together in fashion weeks according to Eurocentric “seasons” months before they hit stores in an age when the runway, at least for the bigger brands that anchor major fashion weeks, had largely

Will China’s Three-Child Policy Spark a Kidswear Boom? | China Decoded, BoF Professional

As Chinese kids return to school this week, their parents are facing a new era of child rearing in the world’s most populous country — one that will likely coincide with impressive growth in the children’s fashion market.

Prior to the pandemic, China’s children’s fashion segment (encompassing both children’s clothing and footwear for newborn to 14-year-olds) was already growing at a rate faster than its men’s or women’s fashion sectors, clocking 12.5 percent year-on-year growth in 2019, according to data from market research provider, Euromonitor International.

In 2020, the pandemic caused a slight decline: the children’s fashion market in China dropped 3.75 percent year-on-year to a total value of 290.83 billion yuan ($44.85 billion). But the sector is expected to come roaring back this year, with Euromonitor estimating sales of 346.6 billion yuan ($53.46 billion) in 2021, representing growth of close to 20 percent year-on-year.

This boom is set to
