In-person fashion runway presentations are back on the radar and we couldn’t be more ecstatic.

British Fashion Council in partnership with HSBC Middle East and Chalhoub Group hosted an exclusive catwalk show at the Expo 2020 Dubai’s UK Pavilion for the leading British designer label Preen by Thornton Bregazzi on October 24, 2021.

Founded by Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, the thematic concept for their Spring/Summer 2022 collection was enlightened by lockdown-induced dressing that echoed elements of a bygone era.

The USA men have one shot left to avoid historic Olympic track ignominy [Video]

At this time last summer, Cole Hocker had yet to run a meaningful race in college, let alone on the Olympic stage.

A year later, the promising but inexperienced 20-year-old is the U.S. men’s track team’s last hope of avoiding ignominy.

An American man has won gold in an individual running event at least once at every Olympics in which the U.S. has participated. Since 1896, the only exception is the 1980 Moscow Games that the U.S. famously boycotted.

Hocker’s presence in Saturday’s men’s 1,500 meters final offers the U.S. one last-gasp chance to preserve its gold-medal streak. The floppy-haired University of Oregon sophomore has
