October 9, 2016: When Bethany Yellowtail saw the widespread involvement of tribes protesting the North Dakota Access Pipeline, she wanted to help them in whatever way she could and found a unique way out to deal with the crisis.

According to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, “the pipeline impacts sites of historic, religious and cultural significance and threatens the water supply for its reservation and millions of people downstream.”

So, Yellowtail started creating Protector Gear. Bethany calls the products “Protector Gear” because she believes that they are not protestors but protectors. This project has helped her create a “garment that is meant to be something and not just for you,” reported billingsgazette.com report.

B.YELLOWTAIL is a Los Angeles based fashion line created by Bethany yellowtail which features art from Great plain tribal region. Founded in the year 2014, it celebrates the beauty of ancient culture. Right now, she is not equipped to produce items in bulk. So she had to use a third party to help her in printing and delivering. This has reduced her profit margins, mentioned the news portal.

I see how my work and my career path and the things I’m passionate about, how they’re still very much intertwined in the big picture.”

So far, the total sale of the “Protector Gears” has been $6,000. The Standing Rock Sioux tribe will receive all the profit from the T-shirt sales in support of their struggle. Protector Gear is at sale until 10th October. You can buy the T-shirt at www.byellowtail.com. So, hurry up.

‘We shouldn’t have feminism in society’: Kangana Ranaut

Mumbai, Sep 15, 2017:  Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, often caught in controversies due to her outspoken nature, says she is not a man-hater, and that she hopes to see a society which does not need feminism.

The National Award-winning actress was present here at the Jagran Cinema Summit on Friday. During an interaction session here, she was asked about her opinion on feminism and why some people called her a ‘man-hater’ after her fiery interviews in the last couple of weeks.

In response to that, Kangana said: “No, I am not a man-hater for sure… I think feminism is something… a sorry state to be in any society. The gender equality should be there, where feminism doesn’t need to act like a medicine on inequality.

“We should not have feminists, we shouldn’t have all these things… We shouldn’t have feminism in society.”

Kangana has always made some unusual choices in films — be it “Fashion”, “Tanu Weds Manu”, “Queen” or “Simran” — and how bold she is about making statements on her struggles in her personal and professional life.

Asked about her courage, Kangana said: “See, a person’s opinion shouldn’t have to do anything with her profession. My profession should not determine my voice as an individual. I think before an actress, I am a woman and a citizen of this country with a free voice, and my voice should be free from all baggage.” (IANS)

Sep 02, 2017: Men are showing greater interest in their appearance and retailers have also shifted their attention towards menswear, says Sanjay Ghura who has come up with a new menswear label in the capital.

“One can find a huge gap between the trends and growth of menswear due to increasing competition in the retail apparel market. The gaps are due to a different lifestyle and the shifts that are taking place on a regular basis. But thanks to the accessibility of fast fashion rates who are driving men’s interest in the adoption of such trends,” Ghura of brand TZAR told IANS.

“Men are showing greater interest in their appearance and retailers have also shifted their attention towards menswear. Wider cultural and lifestyle trends surrounding heightened male interest in fashion and personal style have led to an increased willingness amongst men to spend on their appearance. Within the fashion market, there has been a gradual growth in interest in male fashion,

“I personally think it is a super exciting time. Guys are really well bred, well-versed, have an interest in fashion. I think there are a lot of great influences right now,” he added.

Ghura launched his brand TZAR on Friday night. The USP of the brand is to express yourselves the best to the world at the work place and let everyone know what mood you’re in, whether happy, trendy or confident.

Talking about the evolution of menswear, he said that “the last five years or so have been some of the most revolutionary for men’s fashion.”

“Since the late 2000s, global conversations revolving around men’s’interest in clothing have mounted in popularity, leading industry professionals to address a fledgling but highly influential market that had been long overshadowed or straight up ignored in previous years,” he said.

“The ‘don’t care’ attitude men have to fashion is becoming a thing of the past. Menswear has come a long way and we still continue to explore the foundations of personal style for menswear. And there has been a huge shift in menswear.

“Formals have been adopted by mainstream designers and subverted by subcultures. Clothing has become more form-fitting and casual nowadays. Looking at this scenario, our’s is a formal approach,” he added. (IANS)
