Tel Aviv, Israel, 2016-Dec-28 — /EPR Network/ — Genia Galberstadt (Born Gittel Drebsky) celebrated her 90th birthday on December 25th. Her biggest dream for this birthday was being a model, looking “pretty and young” for her birthday.
Ms. Galberstadt is a fighter in her body and soul. She has been part of the first jewish ghetto uprising in Lakhva in 1942 and was shot in her shoulder trying to escape the Nazis. Later on she found her sister and emigrated to Israel to start her own family. In the last years she faught cancer and won the fight while raising a family of 2 daughters, 3 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
To make her birthday wish come true, the entire family came together with a team of stylist, make up artist and professional photographer and produced a fashion photoshooting day at Ms. Galberstadt home in Tel Aviv. The photoshoot featured items from H&M winter collection.
If you want to help make Genia’s dream come true feel free to publish the photos or contact Roy Cohen for interviews, high resolution photos and further information.

Chicago, IL, 2016-Oct-14 — /EPR Network/ — Women hygiene manufacturer “Genial Day” presented new invention EiVi – patent pending organic cotton panties with double crotch with pockets on the sides to hide pad wings.
Finally pads and panties were united for maximum comfort, health and fashion. It became a reality because of a small family business which worked in this field for many years.
„It has been a decade since our family started sanitary napkins business. Always our goal was the combination of health and comfort. That is why we use only the most advance materials in our pads: ventilated film, biodegradable superabsorbent polymer, air laid paper or ion strip. We are seriously concentrated to fight with pesticides, fungicides, toxic paints, chemicals equilibrate the pH, cellulose and chloro. We also are OEKO-TEX® 100 certified.” – says founder Vilmante Markeviciene.
Functionality and comfort depends on small details. The biggest secret of EiVi panties is a double crotch with pockets on the sides to hide Genial Day pad wings.
“We knew that we have amazing bullets to fight with toxins in women’s body. But the gun was missing. That is how EiVi was born – a line of organic cotton underwear collection designed to ease women’s periods. On top of that, cotton is finished with silver anions to protect body from bacteria, bad odor and allergies. So, health comes first.” – Vilmante says.
Woman can wear EiVi anywhere she wants even during her heaviest days; she doesn’t have to worry about anyone noticing her pad. Since underwear contains 8% elastane, it fits body perfectly in any situation. In addition, it always keeps its shape and style even after numerous laundry cycles.
EiVi comes live on Kickstarter with different styles and colors.

Los Angeles, CA, 2016-Aug-09 — /Fashion-Talk/ — The International Trade Administration (ITA) has partnered with Moonbasa, a large China-based e-commerce company, to support a digital platform dedicated to U.S. brands interested in selling to the Chinese market. This will provide U.S. companies with an opportunity to open a web store on Moonbasa’s e-commerce platform, and also give them an opportunity to participate in a three-day online-to-off-line (o-to-o) experience at Moonbasa’s flagship digital store in Shanghai.

With an inspiration that blended romance and femininity, Gionni Straccia Spring 2017 set the stage for exclusive designs that revealed the richness of a flower – expressing the sweetness and tenderness that flow from it- but highlighting a touch of excitement for the subtle, elegant and tasteful woman.
More than 300 guests were entertained while fabulous models, that included one Miss Universe, showcased the new clothing collection dominated by the use of two Straccia’s favorites: crepes silk and laces. Also, Italian tulle and organza embellished exquisite dresses, most of them with artistic embroidered and hand-painted flowers. Keeping with the trending cape dress, the designer offered a complete collection of stunning short cocktail dresses, pants suits, and evening gowns, that came in white, black, red, pink, and navy colors. Responding to a woman’s dressing needs for the different occasions in her life, Straccia added to the collection an astonishing wedding dress that left attending crowd impressed by the beauty and elegance of this piece.
Known for elegance and made-to-measure inimitable styles among the most important beauty pageants, Straccia is starting a new stage in his successful career; most importantly, with the recent opening of his private atelier in the United States. The Italian-Venezuelan designer is excited with the accomplishment of his very first full collection, “I am really very happy with the outcome. I wanted to express women’s romanticism, femininity and their sweetness,” said Straccia,“and I tried to rescue a technique of hand-painted flowers, to be in tune with the latest fashion trends, but highlighting the indelible Gionni Straccia stamp”.
The WIZO Florida, “Sponsor-a-Child” event included a bazaar with an exclusive diverse group of exhibitors that showcased beautiful pieces in jewelry, decorative items, clothing and many other accessories. As part of its annual gathering, WIZO Florida honored one of its members with a ‘Mother of the Year’ award. This time the privilege went to Colombian native, Margie Szerer, for exemplifying a WIZO woman, dedicated to her family, committed to Israel and a true leader for WIZO Florida.
“We are very proud to have presented renowned designer Gionni Straccia’s spring 2017 Collection at our ‘Mother’s Day Sponsor a Child’ fundraising event” said Suzanne Berkovits Harper, Director of WIZO Florida. “This event has grown each year and has become an icon in our community and one of the premier Mother’s Day events in South Florida, honoring and remembering mothers while benefiting women and children in need in Israel.”

A GARDEN OF VIBRANT DREAMS – Art Project by Shanghai Tang
SHANGHAI, 2014-8-22 — /FASHION TALK/ — Shanghai Tang celebrates its 20th anniversary as the global curator of Modern Chinese chic with a series of collaborations with the visionary creative talents. Inspired by the beauty of nature, this short film “A Garden of Vibrant Dreams” takes us on a mesmerizing journey through a series of six artworks by the talented Chinese artist Jacky Tsai. The video takes us on a continuous fall-through of captivating pop-art scenes that merge one into another to form a dream-like world. The mystic spiral made of round artworks imitate a hypnotic fall where one enters a world within a world (mise-en-abîme). Accompanied by original cinematic music that combines sounds of the East with a modern twist, it is a truly sensory experience that leaves the viewer with a sense of mystery.
“A Garden of Vibrant Dreams” by Shanghai Tang
Artwork by Chinese artist Jacky Tsai
The Jacky Tsai x Shanghai Tang collections are centered on six artworks; the Floral Play, Lotus Porcelain, Carved Dragon, Ginger Flower, Petrol Rainbow and Flying Tiger. In the video, these six artworks are smoothly blended together into one universe to form the garden of vibrant dreams. This magical dimension is filled with colorful energy, reflecting on the optimism of modern China.
The first scene Floral Play – an awaking of nature – captures attention with the opening gates of leaves, followed by acrobats and ballerinas dancing on tree branches, among a kaleidoscope of butterflies, forming a surreal universe embracing the vitality of life. The sudden splash of ink introduces the world of peaceful Lotus Porcelain inspired by Chinese porcelain. The leaves float quietly on a mirror-like river, while acrobats play energetically underneath on the stems. These contrasting actions form an unexpected sense of harmony. As if on wings, we are taken up into the mountains where Chinese motifs of wiggly tree branches and birds grow into a Carved Dragon on a glowing red sunset. We then dive into the radiant sunlight that unexpectedly leads us to the vibrant vegetal universe, the Ginger Flower universe. It takes us through a tunnel of birds, dragonflies, and koi fish coming together to form a picturesque portrait. A compelling spiral of paint swiftly takes the viewer to a colourful valley of Petrol Rainbow set in a landscape of an iceberg with dolphins and gold fish ending the journey by entering a Flying Tiger pop-art like circus. Chinese acrobats and Western performers are seen jumping and swinging up in the air to celebrate the Chinese New Year, on a festive background of Chinese lanterns and dancing lions.
The artworks of Jacky Tsai inspired a limited edition capsule collection of apparel and accessories for women and men. These include the traditional qipao dresses, box clutches, cashmere shawls, porcelain dining set, home products, iPad and iPhone cases, and even a skateboard.

With a staggering 93% of women that own spandex griddles and garments, shapewear is the one product that women hate to love. But lucky for us, this problem is now fixed: the European made, shapewear line called Babalette.
Shapeware can be a total godsend. It helps smooth everything out and give you that extra bit of confidence to wear a satin skirt or a body-hugging dress. But sometimes, the folks who manufacture shapewear get a little carried away.
After all, who doesn’t remember when Octavia Spencer recounted how Melissa McCarthy had to take her Spanx off at an award show because they were so painful!
Babalette, Inc. is a revolutionizing shapewear line that solves all the problems of the existing shapewear brands in the market.

The silhouettes exude a stylish elegance and allows women to showcase their individual style and confidence.

Capital Workwear are proud to offer personalisation and embroidery on a huge range of work wear clothing. This can now be ordered directly online, making the whole process quicker and easier for customers throughout the UK.
From T Shirts to Hi Vis, most products can be personalised with your brand logo, slogan or other imagery.
A choice of three logo positions are available for choice online, with customers being able to select from image placement on the left chest pocket, right chest pocket, or on the back of the clothing.
Additionally, printing is also available for hats and caps, ensuring your corporate work wear can be purchased and printed all from the same location.
The Additional Benefits of Work Wear Personalisation
Market research has proven that staff who are provided with their own branded clothing ensures stronger bonds and ties with the company, and a better sense of trust and pride.
It additionally provides encouragement for customers when presented with a situation where they are in direct conversation with a member of your staff.
To see a whole work force in company clothing inspires trust and a sense of teamwork, rather than seeing a varied choice of work clothing and apparent disarray.
Advertising is an additional benefit, with your work staff displaying company logos, telephone numbers and web addresses while in the office or out at a client meeting.
Whether your company involves office work or outdoor work, there is work clothing available online for any type of business.
Easy Online Ordering
The vast majority of products which are available to buy online at are available for work wear personalisation or embroidery – these products are marked with a “Personalisation Available” banner throughout the Capital Workwear website.
Customers can simply click on that banner to start a Personalisation request for their order.
A simple form is required to be submitted, asking the customer for simple details such as name and address, but also the embroidery information, with customers able to upload their imagery directly online.
Once submitted, Capital Workwear aim for a usual turnaround of between 7-10 days between placing the order and delivery of your customised work wear.
As with all clothing sold online, quality of the product and quality of the embroidery is second to none, with plenty of big brands as well as local businesses having previously used the service.
Free Delivery is offered on orders above £75 too, with delivery across the UK; so ideal for those looking to place an order in bulk for their entire work force.
If unsure about choice of logo, slogan, colours or image placement, Capital Workwear have staff available on the phone and via email to answer your questions and provide advice based on previous orders.
