ICYMI: Friday’s Biggest Fashion Stories

Petra Collins is now a Gucci model.

If you're reading this from our homeland of Canada right now, chances are that a) you're pretty darn cool and b) you're feeling ultra hyped about the arrival of the Canada Day long weekend.  Now is the perfect time to get caught up on all of the goods and goss from the fashion industry this week - from new campaigns, to major news from the CFDA, it's been an eventful 5 days.

Petra Collins Lands a Gucci Campaign 
... And reaches peek Lost in Translation.  Alessandro Michele took his perennially cool squad of Gucci kids to Tokyo for the brand's Fall/Winter 2016 ads, and just as you would expect, it's chalk-full of kitsch, pop cultural nods, and of course, pink.  After walking in the brand's runway show at Milan Fashion Week in February, Canadian-bred photographer Petra Collins got a second endorsement from Michele, making a super chic cameo in print this time.  We just have one question - where are the Japanese models at?

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
