Daily Fashion Alert: Scassi Closes Shop, Nina Garcia Sees Red and Lea T. is the New It Girl

Thanks to the current exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, based-in-that-area GlamourSplash has been blogging the bejeezus out of the history of Hawaiian clothing. It’s all really interesting stuff, but yesterday’s exclusive interview with Camille Shaheen-Tunberg, whose father (Shaheen) created the iconic (and collectible) Hawaiian shirts, is a must-read.

Couture Allure is currently featuring the most beautiful Azzedine Alaïa–inspired graphic, summer dress for sale. We love it, but would you pay $95 for a vintage, nearly-no-name? [Couture Allure]

Favorite to many first ladies and couture great Arnold Scassi is shuttering his couture dress shop after 55 years. It’s quite a blow for the industry. [NYTimes]

Meet the new girl? Givenchy’s Fall campaign will feature Lea T, designer’ Richard Tisci’s transgendered personal assistant, and French Vogue features her nude portrait in next month’s issue. We love it! [The Cut]

It’s interesting to watch how Project Runway judge and Marie Claire fashion director keeps finding ways to monetize her fashion skills. The style author recently signed on to be Target’s new fashion expert, though it remains to be seen what that means. [WWD]

The Mercedes-Benz Miami Swimsuit Fashion Week wrapped up today, and The Cut has put together a slideshow of the good, the bad and the skanky. [The Cut]

New shots—these focus on 1957 fashions—are up on My Vintage Vogue and they’re so pretty. [My Vintage Vogue]
