Michelle Terris Brings Body Positivity To The LA Fashion Scene

Michelle Terris always felt self conscious as a child. Growing up in Southern California, Michelle was fed images from the media that convinced her that her loose arms and extra body fat were something to be ashamed of. Then in 2008, Michelle’s father was diagnosed with ALS - a neurodegenerative disease that causes you to lose control of basic bodily functions. The disease completely changed Michelle’s view of her own body. “After watching my father lose his ability to do everyday things, and then all things, I gained a new perspective on my body image,” Michelle said. “Instead of seeing rolls of fat that needed to be diminished or jiggly arms, I started thinking about all the amazing things my body...

Get a Front Row Seat at Stockholm’s Fashion Week with Virtual Reality Robots

To score a prime spot at fashion shows during Fashion Week, you’ve either got to be in the industry, an illustrious fashion icon, a model in the show or just straight up know the right people. This makes fashion very exclusive to most people, not only a world that can’t be penetrated by the average Joe, but an industry that showcases fashion at these premier events that most people can’t afford, or would even look good in if they’re not a size -6. Stockholm’s Fashion Week is looking to change all of this and bring the eyes and voice of the people into this year’s proceedings. Designer Ida Klamborn will be using a virtual reality robot to broadcast her show to...

Altruis Smart Jewelry Helps You Focus on Important Tasks Instead of Your Smartphone

All it takes is one random smartphone notification to distract you from your busy day. Unfortunately, there aren’t many ways around the issue.

Fashion Forward Fairings Push Prosthetics into the Future with Style

Typically, the image of a prosthetic is depicted as cold, hard and metallic – a hollow, impersonal structure built for functionality and lacking any semblance of flair. Human prosthetics have come a long way in replicating the maneuvers and abilities of the limbs they replace, but that shouldn’t deter how they look aesthetically. That’s the idea behind Alleles Design Studio, which designs and produces ready to wear, customizable prosthetics that up the panache factor of what one might expect from the nuts and bolts of a medical prosthetic. Canadian artists McCauley Warner and Ryan Palibroda founded the studio after becoming inspired by the startling lack of options available for people who require prosthetics. They developed lavishly decorated and intricately detailed prosthetic...
