That was quick!

Faster than a pirate can produce a knockoff, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed the design piracy bill on Wednesday, less than a week after it was reintroduced.

Under the re-worked Innovative Design Protection Act, "deliberate copies that are substantially identical to the protected designs" would have protection for three years, something designers have been lobbying for for some time.

Oops.

Marc Jacobs went against the CFDA model guidelines by casting at least two girls under the age of 16 in his fall show on Monday.

Since the guidelines are merely suggestions Marc just ignored them he doesn't think anyone should tell him how to run his show.

Kate toured the exhibit which featured designs by heavyweights like Tom Ford, Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg and Marc Jacobs just to name a few.

Starbucks Gets Fashionable

Filed under: Alexander WangCFDA Awards

The coffee giant has teamed up with some top designers to create one-of-a-kind tees.

The last three winners of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award - Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet, and Billy Reid – will be creating t-shirts inspired by the coffee brand to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

Reid reveals:

“I remember my first Starbucks experience. I was on a business trip, traveling to Seattle, back in 1988 or ’89. I remember walking in this place to get a cup of coffee—I was like, this is the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had! This is one of these opportunities you just never expect to have.”

Theallet added:

“I think, my god, there are Starbucks all over the world now! It’s something incredible. So for this tee shirt, I made a map. I was inspired by the global community, and all the connections involved around a cup of Starbucks coffee.”

With Wang adding:

“We took the coffee and did a coffee spill, and it led to this abstract rendition of the logo. There’s a sense of humor and it’s very lighthearted.”

As for the designs, Reid created tees for men and women with a vintage feel, while Wang created a unisex shirt resembling spilled coffee. As for Theallet, she created only a woman’s tee featuring a map.

The shirts retail for $85 and you can pick them up at select Nordstrom stores or on StarbucksStore.com.
