Jeans - Turning copper into gold
Invented by: Levi Strauss In: 1873
In the 1950s, jeans became a cult object thanks to James Dean and Marlon Brando. The hard-wearing trousers were invented by Levi Strauss, a German who emigrated with his family to New York in 1848. Young Levi was among those infected by the gold digging fever on the West Coast of the USA, and in 1853 moved to San Francisco to set up a small business of his own providing supplies to the mine workers.

A imagem algo idílica que os estrangeiros fazem do Brasil – um país de natureza exuberante e colorida, habitado por um povo descontraído, com gosto pelo rústico e apaixonado por sol e praia – já não está beneficiando apenas o turismo. Os industriais brasileiros começam a perceber que esse retrato, tão pouco tecnológico e que caberia melhor num cartão-postal do que num catálogo de produtos, pode também ajudá-los a aumentar as vendas no exterior de uma infinidade de bens de consumo.

Latin in his soul
By Suzy Menkes International Herald Tribune
LONDON 'It's very animalistic - in touch with sensuality,'' says Narciso Rodríguez, as he describes the essence of Latin culture, even if the Cuban-American designer only experienced it in the melting pot of New Jersey.
Rodríguez, who was brought up in a cross-cultural American community of Italian, Spanish and Portuguese immigrants merging with the ''crazy Cubans,'' says that he was always the quietest one in his family home. Yet his love of South American music and food and his mother's sewing skills were passed on to her son.
And although Rodríguez, 45, has spent 10 years in the fashion business creating sleek, urban clothes in neutral colors, he believes that he has a Latin soul.

Armor + Lingerie = Fierce Fashion at The Museum at FIT

Joan of Arc is an unlikely fashion icon, but designers today are increasingly channeling the spirit of warrior women. Love and War: The Weaponized Woman, a visually stunning and intellectually daring exhibition on view at The Museum at FIT from September 9 through December 16, 2006, takes an unprecedented look at the influence of armor and other military styles on fashion. But it’s not all chain mail and camouflage. As designers seek to express sensuality, as well as power, they also reference lingerie.

“If lingerie is like soft skin, armor is a hard exoskeleton,” said Dr. Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at FIT. “Lingerie symbolizes nakedness, intimacy and seduction, while armor is associated with authority, protection and discipline. Of cou
