FFD's Weekly Reading Round Up

This week has been pretty hectic with the run up to LFW but we have been keeping on top of current affairs and avoiding the fashion bubble as much a possible.

Here's what has caught our attention this week.

Stylist talks about dealing with anxiety in a pro active way "We came of age in the midst of the worst economic crisis since The Great Depression, our stagnant salaries are being guzzled by skyrocketing rents, we’re unlikely to see our names on the title deeds of a property until we are well into middle age and even pensioners are earning more money than us. Meanwhile, we won’t be able to retire until well into our seventies, by which point our pensions will be meagre and global warming will probably have destroyed most of the earth; no wonder we are anxious"

Things and ink have an interesting take on tattoos in the workplace "We chat to non-profit organisation STAPAW, who work to help companies change hiring and dress code policies to allow tattoos, piercings and body mods, to find out more about what they’re fighting for."

Business of Fashion talks LA fashion week"The city is becoming a hub for fashion experimentation where a potent mix of brands, affluent shoppers and hipster-influencers increasingly co-mingle."

Huff post talks real fur found in forever 21 "If you’ve bought faux fur in Forever 21, you could be in for a nasty surprise. A new investigation by ‘Good Morning Britain’ found that some fake fur items for sale in high street shops - including bag pom poms - were actually real animal fur."

Nylon talks NYFW & Political stances "Mara Hoffman Presents One Of The Most Political NYFW Collections"

BBC News joins in the conversation with this post, 'New York Fashion Week: Six talking points'

The Independent has an opinion or two to share and provokes with the title, 'London Fashion Week 2017: What is the point of five days of runway shows'
