Tibi Redefines Child Labor: High School Girls Sew Scarves for Kids with Cancer

Edited by

Tibi scarves have been doing a lot of good for kids with cancer over the past year. Silk scarves made from fabric strike-offs (A.K.A. test fabric to check custom prints for accuracy #FashionSchool), and profits from their sale on Tibi.com, are being donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Pediatric Cancer Care & Research. Now that the project has grown, Tibi founder/designer Amy Smilovic has enlisted a secret Sewciety of high schoolers to produce them after hours. It’s a whole new form of child labor, and it’s more than fair. It’s for kids, by kids, for good.

Don’t Get Caught Swapping Heels for Flats at Fashion Week

Edited by

Ladies. There are several virtues of life as women we accept and extol. One of those is getting to be a giantess glamazon in 7 inch platform heels. Another is that it’s a widely known secret that we often change into less towering, more, dare I say, practical (yuck) flats for the walk to and from places like work, etc etc. But snap to! This is Fashion Week. I know you’re going to do it, but don’t you DARE let anyone catch you sneaking the change. I don’t care how twistedly painful your feet get, DO NOT change into flats while you are still in eyeshot of Lincoln Center. Be a lady. Do it in a Starbucks.

AKA they will be the most ferociously fabulous skates to ever hit the ice.
