Arin_katie

Barneys New York has partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the LGBT Community Center (The Center) on its spring campaign which features 17 transgender models and "hopes to help break stereotypes and build social acceptance of transgender people."

Additionally, Barneys is donating 10% of all sales from its 11 flagship stores nationwide and Barneys.com on February 11th to the LGBT Community Center in New York City and the National Center for Transgender Equality.

BarneysBarneys writes:

Arin Andrews, Edie Charles, Valentijn de Hingh, Ashley de la Cruz, Sawyer Devuyst, Peche Di, Dezjorn Gauthier, Trevon Haynes, Katie Hill, Eve Lindley, Niki M’nray, Ryley Pogensky, Ines Rau, May Simon, Ahya Taylor, Maxie Neu, and Gisele Xtravaganza. These seventeen extraordinary men and women, transgender individuals with diverse experiences and unique personal stories, are the faces of Barneys New York’s Spring 2014 campaign: Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters, which launches today exclusively on The Window.

Shot by iconic photographer Bruce Weber in New York City, many were photographed and filmed surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. By depicting these human connections, Weber was able to represent both the struggles and triumphs a trans person may face in relation to their gender identity.

4_barneysAs part of the campaign, Barneys is publishing interviews and videos about the participants, like Katie Hill and Arin Andrews in the photo at the top of the page. They write:

Katie was the first transgender student to graduate from her Oklahoma high school in 2012, and the former couple—they remain close friends—first got together when they met at a transgender support group. Their courage, admirable sense of self, and determination to help others who have shared their experiences have made them incredible role models—not only for the many young people in the trans community, but for us all.

NYT Fashion Icon Bill Cunningham Captures NYC Men Dressing for the Cold: VIDEO

Cunningham

NYT fashion legend Bill Cunningham will brave the snow and ice even when his fingertips are so cold he can't feel the shutter on the camera.

He's been out on the street in the recent 0 degree weather taking photos of the "mucho macho" men who are walking around with their coats open, and the skier wanna-bes with their fur trousers.

And yes, one man, who, despite the fact that he is so cold he has frozen into a statue, still keeps on sewing outdoors.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Ralph Lauren Reveals U.S. Team's Sochi Olympics Look: VIDEO

USAolympics

Ralph Lauren, the fashion designer tasked with creating the U.S. Olympic team's opening ceremony looks, unveiled the outfits yesterday, and they sure are patriotic! After scandal struck when Lauren's 2012 designs were found to be "Made in China," the warm, wintry outfit for this year's games had to reflect U.S.A. all the way in both its look and creation. As such, Lauren sourced wool from Oregon, had it spun in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, and then sent it off to California to be made into the patchwork sweaters, hats, and pants that U.S. athletes will be wearing come February 7th.

What do you think of the opening ceremony look? Tacky or fantastic?
