Really nifty way to create a personalised dress form when making clothes for yourself – or for a regular client. I like that it's an analogue method. Before the advent of tape measures, tailors would measure their clients with specially notched strips of paper, which they would then retain for a precise record of each client's body.

Boogie Nights and the Beginning of Disco

Anyone could tell you the “typical” disco traits: the synthesizer, the twirling ball, and the funky pants—but fewer know the true origins of disco, which emerged from the gay underground of New York.

'Boyfriend jeans' are back this year, after getting their name when Katie Holmes wore her then-husband Tom Cruise's jeans to a Broadway rehearsal.

I find the style dispiriting as it implies a heterocentric sexual transaction that's made a woman the property of a man.
