Vanessa Friedman's takeaways from the Fall 2024 shows
After the Fall 2024 shows came to a close this week in Paris, The New York Times' chief fashion critic Vanessa Friedman reflected on the main takeaways from the season. Friedman breaks down the many micro trends seen across fashion capitals, and notes that the world has emerged from the pandemic's comfort clothing and is relearning how to dress for the public world. "The point isn't so much what exactly you wear, but how you wear it: with commitment and a touch of formality," Friedman writes. "That's what you need for next season. Not one specific item, not a mood or a vibe, but an attitude." {The New York Times/paywalled}

How the fashion industry can tackle its climate financing gap
It will cost the fashion industry an estimated $1 trillion to shift to greener practices required to curb greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, Business of Fashion reported on Wednesday. Currently, the industry has barely scraped the surface, but in order to meet these emissions goals, fashion will need to find new ways of working and financing. Potential innovative funding approaches include a fair climate fund requiring each member of the value chain to contribute into a shared fund to finance supply chain decarbonization or tapping into sustainability-linked funding tools like green bonds. {Business of Fashion/paywalled}
