>> Alexander McQueen's Ashes to Be Scattered in Scotland—The ashes of Lee Alexander McQueen are to be scattered on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, where his father, Ronald, was born, in the next few weeks. “He made it clear his wish was for his ashes to be scattered on Skye, where our family comes from originally, and we are going to honour that,” said McQueen’s brother Michael. “He had been there quite a few times over the years and felt a real connection to the place. Alexander was back and forward all over the world, but he felt at home when he was in Scotland. He was so proud he could trace our family back to Skye and he wanted to return to the family home."

"A great passion for our job runs into the family, but we do also know that this is not the most important thing in the world, so we live our lives with lots of irony and detachment, since, after all, it’s just clothes. We work to live better and not the opposite and there’s no point in earning more than you can spend. I guess this approach saved us from making mistakes that have been fatal to other fashion houses or designers."—Margherita Missoni on lessons learned from the family business.

Michael Kors Bans Models Under 16, Natalia Vodianova Talks Post-Pregnancy Eating Disorder at Boston Health Forum
>> Last night, Anna Wintour, Michael Kors, and Natalia Vodianova gathered in Boston to participate in a panel discussion entitled “Health Matters: Weight and Wellness in the World of Fashion," where they addressed current industry efforts to prevent eating disorders.
During the discussion, Kors vowed to raise the minimum age limit on models he hires to 16. “I think super-young girls used to be the exception,’’ Kors told The Boston Globe. “There’s always been a Twiggy, or a model who is very young. But they were few and far between. Now, they’re completely common. That’s something I see as a huge problem." He continued during the panel: “The age of models really has to become a priority. We need to give these girls a chance to grow up.”
Kors also noted that he doesn't book models who show any sign of an eating disorder: “We don’t book her. You shouldn’t support it or encourage it or support it, just say no.”
