A big congratulazioni are in order for Franca Sozzani!
The Vogue Italia has been appointed as the United Nations' first ever Goodwill ambassador!
Sozzani will be responsible for the two-year platform, Millennium Development's Fashion 4 Development program, which is geared toward encouraging fashion's biggest players to work on sustainable development projects.
The program's co-founder and global chair, Evie Evangelo, divvied out deets about what they want to accomplish:
"[Fashion 4 Development aims toward] increase economic levels, decrease poverty and hunger, and help empower women in these countries."
On Thursday, Franca is expected to attend a roundtable discussion at the U.N.’s Manhattan headquarters with top designers, retailers, and U.N. officials sitting in as well.
Fashion 4 Development sounds nifty! Let's hope a lot of fashion goodness comes out of this arrangement.

Dayum! We thought it was all good between family!
According to the suit, both labels and their real estate brokers hashed out a deal in February of 2011 that would assign MaxMara's lease on Kalakaua Avenue aka "Luxury Row", over to Prada.
Under the terms of the agreement, Prada put down a hefty amount of ca$$$h as a deposit and in exchange, was given the right to take possession of the property on July 1, 2011.
Everything was fine up until June, when MaxMara decided to take everything back and needless to say Prada isn't too happy about it.
After all is said and done Prada's seeking "millions of dollars in damages" for breach of contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing and promissory estoppel.

The Aussie singer stopped by their Rodeo Drive store looking fabulous in a purple leopard print D&G dress and black strappy heels.
Unfortunately, it looks like Kylie's shopping trip was a bust because she came out empty handed.

For inspiration, the designer traveled halfway across the world to Istanbul where he spent four days taking in the culture with the department store's execs.
Rodriguez said of his grand excursion:
“It was a really interesting idea to travel somewhere you had never been to before, and get your inspiration from a place that wouldn’t normally be in your comfort zone, bring that back and turn it into a collection. I was completely inspired by the people, the city and all the different cultures.”
Once he returned, Narciso dreamed up collection that includes dresses, knits, and tops in bright, bold colors with prices ranging from $30 to $150.
Will U be there when the collection drops in November!?

Being green is about to get a whole lot easier!
This fall British retailer Marks & Spencer will release what they're calling the most sustainable suit IN THE WORLD!
The greenest suit to ever grace God's green earth is made from organic wool and lined with material made from recycled plastic bottles.
The suit pockets, waistband, and all labels were created using recycled polyester and the buttons are all reclaimed.
The sustainable suits will set you back $550, which is a great price considering all the hard work it takes to piece together. However, only 500 suits have been produced, which means they are ecologically exclusive!
But don't worry! If you can't get your hands on this one when it hits stores and online in September, M&S plans to release a variety of sustainable clothes throughout the year.
