There’s news of another Australian designer-for-store collaboration in the works. This time it’s Dion Lee for Cue.

Speaking of which: are you ready for the latest marketing buzzword? Masstige. Yes, it sounds naff but it’s all about prestige designers working for mass-consumption brands. Think Stella McCartney for Gap or Mulberry for Target. And it may just be the biggest opportunity for fashion labels in China.

Want to know how fashion brands are tweeting? Dick Costolo, Twitter’s CEO, gave some insight at WWD’s conference. The key: it’s about authenticity. Side note: you can find Fashionising.com at Twitter if you use the service.

And speaking of Twitter. Social media is the best way to reach wealthy consumers.

High heels, they’re a health risk but there’s light at the end of the tunnel: it seems they’re okay in moderation. Isn’t that the case with most everything? Though excess can have benefits, the Australasian Podiatry Council has not just told you to go easy on the high heels, they’ve put together some hints as to how to do just that. Number one? Kitten heels.

Staff = Customer Service. Simple formula.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
