The Fashion Editor's Secret to Finding Designer Handbags for Less

We all love a bargain, especially when it comes with a designer label attached. As a fashion editor, I have become pretty adapt at sniffing out an affordable high-end gem (if I do say so myself). My secret? Shopping second-hand. According to the Business of Fashion, before the pandemic hit, the resale market was on track to double from $24 billion in 2019 to $51 billion by 2024.

Here’s How Cruella’s Costume Designer Made "Dalmatian" Fur

There are many reasons to watch Cruella, the live-action film starring Emma Stone as the titular character and adapted from Dodie Smith's novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians and Disney's 101 Dalmatians franchise.

How Halston's Costume Designer Re-Created Every Iconic '70s Style Moment to a T

New York-based costume designer Jeriana San Juan is behind the fashion in Netflix's new miniseries Halston, which explores the life of the iconic American designer in the '70s. San Juan, who has also worked on shows you might have heard of such as Saturday Night Live and Gossip Girl, created mostly every piece you see in the five episodes, which were written by Ryan Murphy and directed by Daniel Minahan. "Once you start searching for vintage Halston, people start expanding your network and going, 'Well, I don't have anything, but I know somebody who has Ultrasuede.'"
