News from the Week

I felt compelled to share some of these valuable links from last week with WT readers:

  • Lagerfeld Confidential, the documentary on Karl, airs on the Sundance Channel on February 9th at 7pm EST to coincide with Fashion Week. (Fashionista)
  • The Bank of England held a “Dress for Success” day, where they sent out a memo to female employees detailing just how they should dress for success (heels and makeup required). (The Cut: New York Magazine’s Blog)
  • Book Report: Textile Designers At The Cutting Edge (JC Report)
  • The Director of Vintage Couture and Accessories at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers was interviewed. These are the folks who auctioned off Leona Helmsley’s clothing and accessories (Debutante Blog)
  • The Parsons Costume Shop was profiled in a video (Threadbanger)
  • The Metropolitan Museum of Arts Director talks about the future of the Museum (Guardian)
  • Architecture and Design Department curators at California museums talk about how they’re adapting. (Architect’s Newspaper)

Hope these notes give your brain some tickling. Feel free to post your comments about any of these stories below. I’m especially interested to hear your thoughts on The Bank of London’s draconian display of male chauvinism.
