Pop Fashion News for Jan. 9, 2015 I do so much fashion news research for the podcast (Pop Fashion) that I decided to chat about it here every now and then. The fashion industry never ceases to amaze me. It's hilarious, interesting, complex...it's a giant soap opera that happens to involve billions upon billions of dollars.
Below are the big fashion news stories from this past week. (Want to listen? Just push play!)

Mercedes-Benz pulled out of Fashion Week. We found out this news about 10 minutes before we started to record. Up until this story it had been a slow fashion news week (rarely happens). When Lisa came across this headline we couldn't believe it. Mercedes-Benz has been such a huge part of fashion week...well, it has been called Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for years.
We can now sue Target. Remember that time Target misplaced 40 million credit card numbers? A judge says that consumers can sue the company.
If you sell digital products you might have to pay taxes to the EU. Maybe. Or maybe not depending on where you live. Or what can be enforced. It's a confusing mess. If you sell downloadable classes / PDF's on Etsy keep an eye out on this story.
Lucky has bloggers on its cover. First ever for a U.S. magazine.
Jourdan Dunn is the 1st black, solo model on the cover of British Vogue in 12 years. Twelve years. Really - twelve years.
For our main topic we talked about self care. It's so important! It came out of my New Year's resolution, and I'm trying my best to get better at it every day.
