IMG seeks to make invitations to fashion shows the highly covetable right of industry insiders it once was-- as they were before the sea of social media swept over fashion week. Catherine Bennet, IMG’s senior vice president and managing director, spoke earlier this week with the Wall Street Journal, telling them that “Fashion Week was becoming a zoo,” which has more than a ring of truth to it. Lincoln Center “has been swarmed with fashion bloggers, street-style photographers, and fashion fans…in addition to the hundreds of journalists and scores of celebrities.”

Caroline Misan Alvo is the CEO and founder of Gambita (meaning “little shrimp” in Spanish), a startup eCommerce company whose goal is to deliver a postivie online shopping experience for petite women by compiling and selling the best petite and petite-friendly clothing to petite women all over the world. She recently held a modeling competition in NYC to find “the face of Gambita.” Originally, she thought she would be able to select a model from one of the many NYC modeling agencies, but after calling numerous agencies and being told that “models under 5’4’’ do not exist,” she decided she would host her own runway show in order to find a model to represent the company. The only requirement for the competition was that every woman be 5’4” or under.

Ashley Olsen has joined the board of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The CFDA is an invitation-only VIP membership that consists of 400 American designers. The CFDA is a not-for-profit organization found in 1962 by publicist Eleanor Lambert. However, for the last 4 years, Diane von Fürstenberg has been the group’s President. Their mission branches out in many positive directions. First and foremost, they want the point of fashion design to be seen as American art and culture, but they also focus on maintaining a code of ethics in professional, public and trade relations. The fashion industry in America is meant to grow and expand – and with creating partnerships and collaborations this becomes possible.
