Is the Tide Finally Turning Against Fast Fashion?

Recent years have seen the rise of fast-fashion behemoths like Forever 21, H&M, Zara—the list goes on. Even stores without their reputation for lickety-split knockoffs seem to be pushing towards tighter production cycles and cheaper offerings.

Carolina Herrera, for the Vibrant Yet Polished Grown-Up Lady in You

New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and this morning Carolina Herrera presented her collection for fall 2014.
