WWD Celebrates 40 Years of Moschino
One of the highlights of the Milan Fashion Week was the 40th anniversary show of Moschino, the Italian fashion house known for its playful and irreverent style. The show was a high-energy hoot, and a rousing tribute to the brand’s founder Franco Moschino, who died in 1994. The creative director Jeremy Scott revisited some of the iconic Moschino moments, such as the teddy bear dress, the McDonald’s-inspired outfits, and the TV-shaped bags. He also added some new twists, such as a dress made of soda cans, a jacket with a zipper that opened to reveal a heart, and a gown with a giant bow that turned into a train. The show was attended by celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Hailey Bieber, Gigi Hadid, and Kaia Gerber.
WWD Interviews Yara Shahidi
WWD also had an exclusive interview with Yara Shahidi, the actress and activist who is set to receive the WIF Max Mara Face of the Future Award. The award recognizes an actress who is experiencing a turning point in her career through her work in film and television, and who embodies style and grace. Shahidi, who is best known for her roles in Black-ish and Grown-ish, said she was honored and humbled by the recognition. She also talked about her upcoming projects, such as playing Tinker Bell in Disney’s live-action Peter Pan & Wendy, and producing a series based on Alice Walker’s The Color Purple. Shahidi said she was inspired by Coppola’s book to pursue her own creative vision.
WWD Reports on SEC’s New Rule on ESG Funds
WWD also reported on the new rule issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that requires environmental, social and governance (ESG) funds to invest at least 80 percent of their assets in ESG-related securities. The rule aims to combat greenwashing, or the practice of misleading investors about the environmental or social impact of a fund. The rule also requires ESG funds to disclose how they measure and monitor their ESG performance, and to provide standardized labels for different types of ESG strategies. The rule is expected to increase transparency and accountability in the fast-growing ESG market.
