LIZZO AND MISSY ELLIOT DROP A NEW TRACK TITLED, "TEMPO":
INSTAGRAM HAS ANNOUNCED A NEW CHECKOUT FEATURE THAT WILL ALLOW PEOPLE TO DIRECTLY PURCHASE ITEMS FROM THEIR FEED WITHOUT LEAVING THE APP. IT IS CURRENTLY IN THE BETA PHASE, AS BIG BRANDS LIKE MAC COSMETICS, ADIDAS, AND H&M ARE JUST A FEW THAT WILL APART OF THE NEW ROLLOUT.
HOW DOES IT WORK EXACTLY? IT'S SIMPLE: THE CHECKOUT FEATURE WILL BE PROMPTED BY TOUCHING THE BRANDS POST, AND SHOPPERS WILL BE ABLE TO SELECT THEIR DESIRED SIZE AND SELECTIONS. FOLLOWING THAT, YOU ENTER YOUR BILLING AND CONTACT INFO (THAT WILL BE SAVED FOR FUTURE CHECKOUTS) AND INSTAGRAM WILL UPDATE YOU ON PACKAGE TRACKING DETAILS, AFTER PURCHASE.
THE BRAND CHRISTY DAWN USES "DEADSTOCK FABRIC" TO CREATE GARMENTS TO SELL. THESE ARE TEXTILES THAT ARE FROM OTHER DESIGN HOUSES, THAT OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE ENDED UP IN LANDFILLS (IF THEY WERE DISCARDED INSTEAD).
PRIMARILY FOCUSING ON DRESSES, THE LABEL PRODUCES STYLES IN SMALLER QUANTITIES DUE TO THE INDIVIDUAL FABRIC THAT COMES AVAILABLE. HOWEVER, THAT MEANS THAT THE GARMENTS AREN'T MASS PRODUCED AND THEREFORE, BATCHES ARE UNIQUE IN NATURE.
