Insider Roundup: CHANEL's Vacuumed Hair & More

The weird, wet and wonderful

Happy Hump Day! We’re hoping you’ve had a good start to your week so far. If not, maybe these news bits will help cheer you up.

Bumble Bizz

Think of it as Tinder but for your career. Networking has been made easy through Bumble Bizz, a career networking app developed by Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe. Unlike dating apps, however, Bumble Bizz won’t show a user’s age because ageism is really common in the workplace, and doing so may hinder a person’s chance of getting a job.

Singapore Breast Cancer Awareness

It’s October, and we’re happy to be part of spreading breast cancer awareness. The Breast Cancer Foundation is asking the whole of Singapore to join in the campaign by joining the Pink Ribbon Walk happening on 7 October or volunteering for the cause. Learn more about how you can participate here.

Louis Vuitton Lady

Aside from the marvellous pieces from their Spring/Summer ‘18 collection, Louis Vuitton also made the news by having Janaye Furman walk the runway for them. Furman is the first woman of colour to walk for the French brand.

CHANEL uses vacuum

CHANEL’s Spring/Summer ‘18 presentation was done near a body of water, which complements their pieces quite well. The models wore see-through headwear and their hairs were tied with what appears to be a plastic tube. If you’re wondering how they got the look, an actual vacuum was used to cinch each model’s hair in place.
