F&W STYLE is excited to announce that our collection will be launching at Macy’s Lenox Mall Atlanta on November 4th 2018 as part of the Market at Macy’s Program. We first launched our collection at Macy’s Fort Lauder-dale Florida in August and we are excited to now be launching in our city of Atlanta.

Being selected as one the brands to be sold at Macy’s Lenox has reinforced our belief in creating beautiful luxury leather handbags at an affordable price for busy women on the go! Our efforts are not only appreciated by our customers, but also by one of the world’s biggest department stores.

To feature F&W Style, or to get more information about our launch party later in November please contact Alexandria Alli at info@fwstyle.com.

About F&W Style

Alexandria started her passion for fashion at age ten, assisting her mom at her Fashion Design Studio in Nigeria. That is where she learned about design and running a fashion business.  At age thirteen her family moved from Nigeria to Atlanta and Alexandria started her modeling career.  Through modeling she fell in love with the glamour of the industry; but realized that most women including her could not afford the luxurious accessories that she modeled in magazines. She set out to change that, and F&W Style Handbags was born.

“In our 9years in business we have steadily grown our brand. We have been featured in magazines including Vogue and Essence, our handbags have been worn by celebrities including A-List star Gabrielle Union. We have also been able to build a large social media following that love our growing brand. We are so excited to continue our growth and become part of the Macy’s family”- Alexandria Alli

Luxury Brand, Burberry, Under Fire for Hoodie w/ Perceived Suicidal & Racist Epithets!

Fashion has been marked red with disappointment thanks to the insensitivity of luxury brands. First, Gucci creates a shirt with a mask that resembles black face, and now Burberry is under fire for a hoodie with a noose around the neck! Burberry has immediately released an official apology, stating:

“We are deeply sorry for the distress caused by one of the products that featured in our A/W 2019 runway collection,” Marco Gobbetti, Burberry chief executive officer, said in a statement provided to CNN.
“Though the design was inspired by the marine theme that ran throughout the collection, it was insensitive and we made a mistake,” he added.

This apology came AFTER the design was still showcased on the runway despite model, Liz Kennedy’s concerns that it was inappropriate and promoted the idea of suicide being fashionable. Communities of color perceive the noose as a nod towards lynching, a common practice of terror and execution of thousands of African-Americans throughout slavery and well into The Civil Rights Movement.

@burberry @riccardotisci17 Suicide is not fashion. It is not glamorous nor edgy and since this show is dedicated to the youth expressing their voice, here I go. Riccardo Tisci and everyone at Burberry it is beyond me how you could let a look resembling a noose hanging from a neck out on the runway. How could anyone overlook this and think it would be okay to do this especially in a line dedicated to young girls and youth. The impressionable youth. Not to mention the rising suicide rates world wide. Let’s not forget about the horrifying history of lynching either. There are hundreds of ways to tie a rope and they chose to tie it like a noose completely ignoring the fact that it was hanging around a neck. A massive brand like Burberry who is typically considered commercial and classy should not have overlooked such an obvious resemblance. I left my fitting extremely triggered after seeing this look (even though I did not wear it myself). Feeling as though I was right back where I was when I was going through an experience with suicide in my family. Also to add in they briefly hung one from the ceiling (trying to figure out the knot) and were laughing about it in the dressing room. I had asked to speak to someone about it but the only thing I was told to do was to write a letter. I had a brief conversation with someone but all that it entailed was “it’s fashion. Nobody cares about what’s going on in your personal life so just keep it to yourself” well I’m sorry but this is an issue bigger than myself. A look so ignorantly put together and a situation so poorly handled. I am ashamed to have been apart of the show. #burberry.

Burberry should definitely shoot Liz an extra check for trying to be their conscience. We definitely feel these luxury brands needs to hire people with sensitivity awareness to ensure this does not continue to happen. There is NOTHING cool or cute about nooses. That’s a fashion accessory history and the dead would rather forget.

It truly is the end of an era! Payless shoe store chain has announced it is closing all 2100 of its locations in the United States.

The company, which was founded in 1956, will be closing down all 2,100 of their stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico beginning in March, a spokesperson said, per CNN Business. Payless has more than 3,600 locations worldwide and over 18,000 employees. The company’s online store will also be shut down. Liquidation sales will start this coming Sunday.

“We expect all stores to remain open until at least the end of March and the majority will remain open until May,” the company said via a statement, per USA Today. “This process does not affect the company’s franchise operations or its Latin American stores, which remain open for business as usual.”

The Wall Street Journal reports that the company is getting ready to file for bankruptcy. The discount shoe retailer previously filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April 2017 and subsequently closed about 400 of their locations. 

We are honestly kind of sad to see the shoe chain go. If you were a latchkey kid or need some cheap shoes quickly, then Payless was the place to be. First Toys R Us and now Payless. What’s the next big company from our millennial childhood to go bust?
