Megan Thee Stallion Face of Savage x Fenty Holiday Collection
Savage x Fenty is tapping Megan Thee Stallion as the face of its 2020 holiday collection. The campaign features a plush pink room surrounded by gifts and pearls. The rapper first collaborated with Rihanna’s brand in May, with the SavagexTheeStallion collection.

London Fashion Week Postponed for 2021
The British Fashion Council is postponing London Fashion Week in January. Instead, the fashion event will occur in February, blending with a digital format for the first time. This comes as COVID-19 restrictions amp up in the British capital, as well as upcoming customs issues. The event will also be one of the first gender-neutral fashion shows for the city.
“When we launched London Collections: Men in June 2012, which then became London Fashion Week Men’s, we were responding to an industry need and to the necessity to have a platform for British menswear designers,” said Dylan Jones, the BFC Men’s Chair. London Fashion Week will take place from February 19 to 23.
M.J Bale Debuts Collaboration with AIME
M.J Bale is collaborating with AIME to celebrate ReclAIMEd’s first birthday. ReclAIMEd is an initiative founded by AIME, which uses deadstock and transforms them into new pieces. This is the second iteration of Suits for Suits – M.J Bale is donating 14 suits that will be the canvas for some of Australia’s leading artists. They will use these suits to display their art forms, which will then be auctioned off, with the sales going to AIME.
AIME is an ‘imagination factory’ for marginalized youth. The artists taking part in the collection include Bronwyn Bancroft, Georgia Hill, and Dan Single, among many others. “Suits for suits is about us building bridges from a traditional corporate symbol to open the doors for kids around the world to see through the world of imagination, and what is possible,” said Jack Manning Bancroft, the Founder of AIME.

ReclAIMEd: M.J. Bale has teamed up with @aimementoring to raise awareness of fashion waste, donating vintage suits to the Indigenous mentoring non-for-profit for 14 of Australia’s most promising artists to paint on. The suits-as-canvas will be auctioned off on shop.aimementoring.com, with 100% of sales going to AIME to help close the gap in Indigenous education. The project, says #aimementoring founder, Jack Manning-Bancroft, is about “building bridges from a traditional corporate symbol to open the doors for kids around the world to see through the world of imagination, and what is possible.” “It’s an honour for M.J. Bale to work again with AIME, an organisation transforming the lives of not just
First Nations kids, but marginalised children worldwide,” says M.J. Bale founder, Matt Jensen. “Textile waste and toxic landfill is a huge challenge facing our generation and the generations to come, and this project with AIME hopefully shines a spotlight on the opportunity we have to not just reuse and recycle, but use our collective imagination to reclaim the future.” Read more via link in bio
