Dior's '60s flower power celebrates women's rights in Paris
The effect was intentional. Anthony Vaccarello has consistently created dark atmospherics in his presentations since becoming Saint Laurent designer in 2016.Huge fringed boots, black mini dresses and voluminous sleeves in black gave way to loose metallic disco dresses with strong shoulders and plunging necklines. They shimmered in the dappled light.There was a brooding sensuality in many of the details, such as shiny black leather gloves or a black fur band wrapping the bust that was set against naked shoulders.The piece de resistance?A black column dress that evoked a tuxedo and had a front section artfully cut out. Instead of a white shirt, the opening revealed a bare chest.___JACQUEMUS KICKS OFF PARIS FASHION WEEKFrench fashionistas flocked to the front row beneath the lofty ceilings of the Petit Palais — from model Farida Khelfa to legendary couturiere Christian Lacroix — in a testament to the growing star power of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, whose collection now opens the Paris Fashion Week calendar.Capitalizing on the current buzz, the 28-year-old this month announced he's expanding into menswear.His fall-winter display went on a journey to Morocco, a country that Jacquemus has said he often retreats to after Fashion Week. Exaggerated proportions of fabric defined the exotic silhouettes— in split skirts, gargantuan wrap-hats, pleated culottes or coats with a round."This winter, I got lost in the souks again," Jacquemus quipped.A silken kaftan in light French beige flowed with an Eastern feel thanks to loose proportions — and trompe l'oeil pants that billowed by like a skirt.The well-executed 58-piece collection featured pigment colors and had several standout moments. The front of one frayed skirt in dark vanilla was imagined as a hoop of fabric. And the stilettos, with heels made of giant colored beads, had many in the audience whipping out their cameras.___MARINE SERRE, FRANCE'S RISING STARMarine Serre, 26, hosted her debut ready-to-wear show in Paris, hot off the (stylish) heels of winning the prestigious LVMH Prize.She was the first designer in history to have won the French luxury giant award without having launched an official brand. The French designer — who's worked at Balenciaga — has quickly won praise for her athletic silhouettes that were given fashion-forward vibrancy with prints.In Tuesday's eclectic collection, Serre's foulard-print style pollinated onto loose layered boho skirts amid flashes of bright color. Body-hugging leggings, bodices and head caps had a sportswear feel with a crescent-moon print.In a surreal turn, a 1-meter-square silk scarf was used as an earring.

A Colorado baker, a Richland florist: Do religious beliefs justify discrimination?
The case drew an unusually long 90-minute argument before the Supreme Court and more than 100 amici curiae briefs.Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, author of seminal gay rights opinions, appeared likely the deciding vote.With the Trump administration arguing the case of baker Jack Phillips, Kennedy asked whether Phillips could have put a sign in the window: "We don't bake cakes for gay weddings." He described the administration's argument as offensive to the "dignity" of LGBTQ people.But Kennedy took Colorado officials to task in their treatment of Phillips, saying: "It seems to me the state in its position has been neither tolerant nor respectful of Mr. Phillips' religious beliefs." The justice suggested a state civil rights commission was excessive when it ordered Phillips to have remedial training for his workers.The case poses a basic question: Can religious beliefs be used to get around laws that forbid discrimination based on sexual preference or gender identity?Yes, the religious right has argued. "Pray that the Supreme Court will protect religious liberty and people of faith across our nation," evangelist Franklin Graham tweeted, with a picture of Jack Phillips.No, said the state of Washington in a strongly worked amicus curiae brief."Allowing commercial businesses to use the First Amendment as a shield for discriminatory conduct would undermine state civil rights law and the vital benefits they provide to residents and visitors , leaving behind a society separate and unequal by law," said the brief, filed by Attorney General Bob Ferguson.EMAIL NEWSLETTERS: Get breaking news and the day's top stories in your inbox"Many Americans would face exclusion from a host of everyday businesses or, at the very least, the ever-present threat that any business owner could refuse to serve them when they walk in the door -- simply because of their sexual orientation, or their race, religion or gender".The Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative legal group, has represented both Phillips in Colorado and Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers, in this state.The group's attorney Kristen Waggoner, described Phillips' wedding cake as a "temporary sculpture", and that his services cannot be equated to other vendors."The tailor is not engaging in speech, nor is the chef," Waggoner argued."The baker is engaged in speech, but the chef is not engaging in speech?" asked Justice Elena Kagan.Phillips has argued through the case that he is a creative artist, befitting the title "Masterpiece Cakeshop." The Trump administration argued that under the First Amendment, Phillips is protected from crafting something that "inherently" sends a message opposed to his religious beliefs.But Justice Sonia Sotomayor noted that Subway...Dec 29, 2017

"Often times, those that are incarcerated are forgotten about because they're not here. When someone goes before the judicial system, they lose family and their children."We wanted to give and be a conduit to show their love because that's what it's all about," she noted.Victoria Oquendo, a member of Grace Gospel Church, said the party was a great way for the children to engage in arts and crafts while enjoying lunch and getting gifts for the holidays.Oquendo, who owns Creative Kids Entertainment, a local arts and crafts business, said she hopes the party will get children in Paterson's Fourth Ward, a poverty hub in the city, more into activities like arts and crafts.She painted snowflakes, Christmas flowers, and Santa hats, among other holiday symbols, on the children's faces that afternoon.Angel tree program is a Christmas Party for children with incarcerated parents in Paterson.

Delle Donne wedding: Cascading flowers, ensemble changes and moving moments
A wedding reading that’s gained popularity in the past few years are the words of Justice Anthony Kennedy in the Supreme Court ruling recognizing same-sex marriage nationally.Cane read the passage that states: “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death.”

Brownsville florist has deep roots
NSVILLE – What started as a business selling artificial flowers is now the only store left in Brownsville where you can get fresh flower arrangements.Anthony Madison started his business roughly 35 years ago, originally running it out of his home in Chalybeate.“I actually ran it on my back porch, and I started out only selling silk flowers,” he said.For a florist selling fresh flowers, a cooler to preserve the flowers is essential. At the time, Madison didn’t have the money for one.Opening Madison’s Flowers in his Chalybeate home came nearly two decades after he was last involved with floristry, he said.Madison got his start in the floristry business at 15 when Marguerite Moody, the owner of Marguerite’s Flowers, unexpectedly offered him a job.“I actually went in one day to pay a flower bill for my dad and she asked me would I like to have a job,” he said.At the time, Madison said he was mainly employed as a “gofer” but learned the basics of floral arrangement.For 17 years, he worked at Holley Performance Products in Bowling Green but decided to change jobs when his daughter Autumn was born in 1981.“My wife wanted to be a stay-at-home mo...
