It's official: Forever 21 has filed for bankruptcy
A month after bankruptcy rumours about the brand surfaced, Forever 21 has made it official. Once a big name in the fast-fashion industry, the fashion retailer’s profits dwindled as a result of people preferring to shop online. With over 800 stores worldwide, Forever 21 has announced that they will close most of their stores in North America, Europe, and Asia to slim down operations and restructure. Still, all isn’t lost for us in the region. Luckily for us, the brand will continue operations in some countries like the Philippines and Singapore, so we can still visit their stores for style essentials.
Desigual presents F/W ’19 collection and unveils a new logo
On a happier note, Desigual’s presence in Singapore grows stronger than ever. More than a decade after the opening of their first store in the Lion City, the Spanish fashion brand partnered with ZALORA, their official online partner to present their F/W ’19 collection. During the event, they also permanently reversed their logo to highlight their spirit of uniqueness. The word “desigual” means “different” in Spanish, and the brand paid tribute to their essence by presenting their collection through a dance performance. Talk about fresh and cool, right?
