Celebrated for her unique designs for her own fashion house Sirivannavari Bangkok which has attracted considerable attention not just in Thailand but internationally, the Princess was also named Silpathorn Artist in Fashion Design in 2018. In the sports arena, HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya is known as an accomplished dressage competitor. To her, riding goes well with fashion in tastefulness and beauty.
Having participated across Europe, the Princess entered several competitions as a member of the Thai equestrian team. She has established the Princess's Cup Thailand with the main objective to promote awareness of equestrian sports among Thais and show the world Thailand's ability to host major events. She also initiated "Best Groom" and "Best Farrier" contests in Thailand in 2016.

You have to see Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya work to understand why everything she is passionate about -- be it classical music, equestrianism or fashion -- all turns out to be a great achievement.

Saint Mary's introduces new fashion and costume minor, engaging students of diverse backgrounds // The Observer

Sophomore Brittany Stewart is using courses in the minor to create her own major in sustainable fashion.
“Professor Bialko has helped me design my own major, so I’m in the process of putting that together and sending in the proposal,” Stewart said. “I’ve taken a mix of environmental science classes and fashion classes put them in with some art ones and my senior composition will be creating my own line.”
Ultimately, Stewart wants to combine her love for fashion with her horse riding hobby.
“Horse clothing is very expensive. So my goal is to make my own equestrian sustainable fashion line that is affordable. One thing I’m going to work on doing is repurposing those fabrics, re-dyeing them in a safe manner that’s not going to harm the environment and then creating a line that works well for people working in the industry.” #StMarysCollege #NotreDame

The College’s department of theatre introduced a new minor in fashion and costume to Belles this semester. Theatre professor and professional specialist in design Melissa Bialko spearheaded the program and spoke about its creation. “We’re really fortunate at Saint Mary’s,” Bialko said. “...

International Women’s Day is Monday, March 8. As part of the worldwide celebration of women’s achievements and 2021 theme, #ChooseTo Challenge, Horse Illustrated magazine and StreamHorseTV are partnering to present a 90-minute livestream Q&A at 6pm EST that evening with six extraordinary equestriennes to be featured in L.A. Sokolowski’s “12 Trailblazing Horsewomen.” The article will appear in the upcoming May issue of Horse Illustrated, which hits newsstands April 20. “With so many amazing women in the horse industry, it was really hard even narrowing it down to 12 women trailblazers for the article,” said Horse Illustrated Editor Holly Caccamise. “We’re excited to celebrate International Women’s Day with this unique livestream event, in partnership with StreamHorseTV. We know many in the horse industry look up to these true trailblazers.”
A salute to female influencers of the horse industry was already on their docket when StreamHorseTV.com Director of Content Natalie Mayrath presented the idea for a livestream “sneak peek” and Q&A with some of the feature’s trailblazing women.
“Our mission is to build a community across equine sports, and getting this powerhouse group of women together in conversation embodies that spirit of breaking boundaries. They represent so many different equine industry sectors, all joining in celebration of the woman and, ultimately, the horse,” said Mayrath, a former digital producer on women and money at Yahoo Finance, and series producer on an Emmy-nominated documentary about influential females in the media world.
The host of the livestream will be award-winning writer, L.A. Sokolowski, whose Best Feature Single Article at the 2020 AHP Media Awards marked her fourth win in equestrian journalism. Sokolowski said, “We are all hungry for connection and perhaps more keenly aware than ever about the need to share, nurture and encourage young women – and people – who will be next in taking the reins to our industry. The women I had the privilege of interviewing have much more to say about where our horse industry has been and where it is headed.”
With such an abundance of stories from these featured horsewomen, Sokolowski will continue the conversation with six Trailblazing Women during this celebratory livestream event on International Women’s Day. Livestream guests will include Extreme Mustang Makeover founder Patti Colbert; Ebony Horsewomen, Inc. founder Patricia E. Kelly; five-time Olympic show jumper Anne Kursinski; Debbie Roberts Loucks of The Movement and Horsemanship Radio podcast; four-time AQHA Superhorse trainer Lynn Palm; and TTouch Training® founder Linda Tellington-Jones, Ph.D.(H).

Fashion month’s realignment: A new pace

One of the most intriguing video efforts in recent memory came from Sterling Ruby’s S.R. Studio L.A. C.A. label, whose collection for Paris haute couture week shows walking models overlaid on video shot at a paintball course on the outskirts of Los Angeles. It’s simultaneously a runway video, music video and art film. Baptista and Prodject pivoted to film production, upgrading fashion-show videos to involve choreography, set pieces, and lengthy shot lists with action beyond the catwalk. “A runway video is just not going to do it anymore,” Baptista adds.

Designers across markets have pivoted to digital formats as fashion month quietly comes back around. For some, the pandemic has offered a chance to pull back from seasonal demands.

Hermès sales surge on Asia rebound, loyal customers

By category, Hermès’s leather goods and saddlery, half of the total sales in 2020, climbed 18%, watches grew by 28% and “other sectors” including jewelery and home products rose 56%. “With over 20% retail revenue growth in the fourth quarter, Hermès appears to be in a different league,” says Citi analyst Thomas Chauvet. “On a full-year 2020 basis, it has been by far the most resilient brand in the luxury sector. It further supports the validity of a unique family-oriented business model built around timeless style, product quality and durability and deep relationships with the local clientele.”

The French luxury house’s strong performance in the fourth quarter is evidence of the heritage brand's resilience in crisis time, executive chairman Axel Dumas says.
