"Vogue's Race Problem Is Bigger Than Karlie Kloss"(Buzzfeed)
"Vogue's diversity problem isn't Karlie Kloss but rather the geisha image itself, and the persistent desire to exoticize otherness in its storied pages."

"Lawsuit: Tiffany Pushed Out Employee with Cancer Mutation" (Associated Press)
"Lisa O'Rourke alleges in a federal lawsuit that the New York-based company discriminated against her because she carries a gene mutation that put her at high risk for developing cancer, and she was compelled to have surgeries that her lawyer says were life-saving."

"The Hidden Cost of Cashmere" (Forbes)
"The price of cashmere needs to account for its future supply. We can either pay a fair price for it today and enjoy one of nature's finest products for the long term, or consign producers and aficionados of cashmere to a fading existence and waning wildlife legacy."

"How Fashion Became a Political Soapbox for Anti-Trump Protesters" (Evening Standard)
"Fashion is populated with liberal creatives, but while their protest messages are likely to be sincere it's relevant to note that designers are also operating businesses."
