When we asked Rebecca Minkoff to write a travel column for Chic, we knew she liked to get out of town. Now, we're convinced she's been everywhere. This week: Hong Kong.
“Change is inevitable, except for vending machines. Wiser words have never been spoken, right? This was the fortune that came after my first meal in Hong Kong. It was a whirlwind tour of factories, fabrics and fried food that inspired not only my creativity, but every one of my senses.
Hong Kong, I love you—because you make New York seem like a roomy oasis of wide open spaces!

Original Drawing by Cynthia Rowley for Chic Report View Gallery
She's done it again! Cynthia Rowley has invented another "unusual" item that she'd produce "if only" she had the time. Introducing the 'Precious Cargo' Travel Bag. The owner can blow up protective insulation pockets on the interior of the bag so that "precious cargo" isn't damaged in transit.

Up-and-coming designers are popping up everywhere and editors are on the lookout for the next Prabal. New York Fashion Week will host many new talents this month but one place to keep an eye on is G'DAY USA supported by The Woolmark Company. For over 50 years, names like Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, and Donna Karan have won the inaugural Woolmark Prize. This year, fashion designers showcased their innovative creations using Australian Merino wool at the Australian Consulate in NYC and the outcome was nothing short of breathtaking. Serpent & The Swan, a Sydney-based label run by two sisters, takes a dark twist to knitwear while Fujinella incorporates its wool into easy everyday separates with a downtown spin. On the hunt for a statement jewelry piece? Look no further than Lori Schwarz and Cynthia Ellis of Totomoto Australia. They'll give Pamela Love a run for her money!

"Now, we’re just imitating and imitating and imitating what we’ve done before. The real revolution on how we make clothes and how we wear clothes is about to come. I don’t know if we should be afraid or not. That’s when we’re going to see a Steve Jobs in the industry." --Norma Kamali at Thursday's FGI Rising Star Awards.

Lulu Frost's Lisa Salzer is back with more ideas and inspirations that you can do yourself! This week, she brings back a style that Chic adores: the turban.
"Today, let's explore the wonderful world of an instant DIY accessory, the classic turban. I'd love to take a look at this style secret that unites some of the chicest women that have graced the planet, from beauties as diverse as Greta Garbo, Marlene Deitrich, Coco Chanel, Kate Moss, Bianca Jagger, Ali MacGraw and the Queen of England herself. These style icons all have a shared understanding of the power of the turban to transform, beautify and add that certain je ne sai quoi as fast as you can find a bit of fabric and tie it in a knot.
To illustrate the potential to be found in your own closet, I've asked our wonderful Lulu Frost employees, design director Carly Leach and accounts director Claire Dennig, to model my impromptu half-turbans pinned with vintage brooches. They did so quite gracefully for being yanked from their desks mid-work week, and both styles were literally created in a matter of seconds. The more casual the knot, the more tangled the locks beneath, the better. This style is all about the casual approach, and you just can't get it wrong. Both ladies loved the instant style transformation so much that I expect to see them hitting the town in these DIY numbers come fashion week. It's as simple as finding a pretty scarf in your closet, tying a knot right in the middle of the thing and then winding it several times around the crown of your head, tucking in the ends of the scarf near the nape of the neck. For the final touch, pin a vintage brooch on the side of the central knot and add a bobby pin or two on each side to secure. Then throw that head up high and head out onto the town!
Lulu & Co."
