Global Transfiguration: How a Simple T-Shirt Is Trying to Save the World

As we become more aware of environmental changes impacting our planet, we’re adopting more sustainable practices in everyday life. Americans use 40% less natural gas in their homes than 40 years ago. As we learn more about sustainability, this is translating into more than just energy use.

Eco-conscious company Global Transfiguration is introducing a collection of sustainable prints to allow you to wear your environmentally beating heart on your sleeve. In partnership with The Climate Reality Project, Global Transfiguration artist and founder Stephon Stewart hopes that his new line of prints will inspire change in everyday life, from the 33% of renters who move each year to the toddler just starting to learn about how the world works.

Global Movement by Tee

“Earth is our only home,” Stewart explains. “This is our opportunity to change the course of history for future generations on our planet.”

His oil paintings have hit a chord with people both young and old. Featuring 16 versions of the earth in various forms, each one represents a possible future we might experience.

Global Transfusion

For example, the fiery “Inferno” showcases a red earth meant to be viewed through an infrared radiation telescope. In this version of a future earth, carbon dioxide has done its worst, getting trapped inside the atmosphere to warm the planet to obscene temperatures. But the greenhouse effect isn’t the only thing we have to worry about.

Global Transfusion T-SHIRTS

Another, titled “Dry,” shows the earth as a potential barren wasteland. Now that the United States has hit a high of creating 4.3 trillion documents each year, this is a scary — but very real — possibility. But Stewart’s prints aren’t all terrifying. “Wet” is meant to pay tribute to the water that sustains the planet while “Gaia” honors the greenery of earth and the harmony between humans and nature.

Best of all? Part of the proceeds goes toward a monthly donation directly to The Climate Reality Project.

So far, the Global Transfiguration campaign has 16 eco-friendly T-shirts available, eight different totes, and a fleece hoodie. On the shirts, the globe rests right on the wearer’s chest, an emblem akin to the logo of a superhero doing their part to save the planet.

Global Transfusion teeGlobal Transfusion tee

“Everyday citizens can wear the shirts and feel like superheroes,” Stewart continues. “Maybe one can grow up to be the next Albert Einstein and create a new energy source.”

As such, the shirts are available in men’s, women’s, children’s, and even toddler’s sizes. In the fight to save the planet for the next generation, Stewart and Global Transfiguration hope that everyone will partake in the project and “Wear the change.”

The Results Are In: Here’s the Pantone Color Trend Report for SS2020

Human beings love visual aesthetic and we typically put a lot more stock in it than we think we do. In fact, about 76% of homeowners feel the need to change the style of their kitchen during an in-home renovation project and that’s only one room of the house. From residence to the runway, there are trends in design and style that people tend to flow with.
Even though angsty autumn colors are on their way, let’s check out what the color trends will be in fashion and design in 2020 with the new Pantone color trend report for New York Fashion Week.

Spring and summer are full of bright colors, but you can’t neglect the staples. This dusty yellow color is the perfect addition to any delicate outfit.

Coral Pink

Curve New York Trade Show

Check Out the Hottest Trends In Lingerie from CURVE New York

The 6th annual Curve New York event is one of the largest lingerie shows in the country.

“This show was one of the most well attended with buyers from 25 countries and 47 US states!” Exclaimed Raphael Camp, the CEO of Eurovet Americas who served as the producer for the event. “We received positive feedback that brands made impactful business relationships and secured substantial orders. All exhibiting brands, buyers, sponsors, and press partners made this season truly memorable.”

Curve New York Trade ShowCurve New York Trade Show

More than 250 different apparel brands were involved in the intimate apparel industry event. Some of the top names who made an appearance at CURVE New York include Eberjey, Chantelle, and Komar. From fitting workshops to panels discussing inclusivity, this event did more than just showcase the newest and brightest from lingerie companies; it set the top trends we can expect to see throughout the next year.

When 99.7% of people agree that a healthy smile is socially important, it makes a pretty convincing statement about the timelessness of an important physical feature. However, like the rest of our bodies change, so do the fashion trends we see rise and fall in the clothing that we adorn.

Curve New York Trade Show

No one is so in-tune with current trends as Camp.

“We are seeing the rise of hybrid brands — the lines between innerwear and outerwear are being blurred. Lingerie and Swimwear items are being crafted in new materials that artfully transition from the boudoir or pool to the nightclub or music festival.”

Without further ado, here are some of the industry trend favorites from Curve New York this year:

Bondage-Inspired Looks


Who says bondage isn’t fashion?

Bordelle, DTSM, Mila Krasna, and Elissa Poppy beg to differ. The fashion brands stunned audiences with bondage-inspired lingerie that fans couldn’t get enough of. Complete with strappy, skin-tight details and more than a few leather features, these leading lingerie brands served equal measures of fashion and fierceness at the trade show.

Retro Vibes


Dita Von Teese led the pack but their looks were closely followed by stunning selections from Lise Charmel, Parfait, Maison Close, and Noblesse Oblige. From ruffles to lace to classic silhouettes, onlookers were stunned with the unique creations at the show.

Body Positivity


Body positivity is a train that cannot be stopped. A special space was carved out to ensure that these body-positive brands were given the attention they deserve. Curvy Kate was a fan favorite, along with Gossard, Parfait, and Panache.

Paired with the special “Inclusiveness and Intimate Apparel Panel” hosted by Kimmay Caldwell, activism was at the forefront of the event this year.

Elegant Comfort

Maison Close, Leonisa, Janira, Chantelle, CosaBella, Maison Dejaby, Le Mystere, and Felina were just some of the brands hoping to blend comfort with luxury. After all, lingerie is known for its uncomfortable structure. Just like a glass partition can be framed or frameless, however, industry leaders are constantly finding new ways to add structure and comfort in lingerie.

90’s + Bodysuit Trends


Camp was right when he noted the prevalence of dextrous fashion; now, more than ever, we want clothing that does double-duty. From nights in the bedrooms to nights on the town, top brands were showcasing 90’s-inspired bodysuits that can be worn just about anywhere. This actually isn’t far off from Eurovet’s prediction back in November of last year, including their fan-favorite: innerwear as outerwear. Top leaders in this field include Monique Moran, Aubade, Blubella, and Undress Code. Speaking of which…

Innerwear as Outerwear

Larissa Kate, Else, Undress Code, Natori, Ipek Kramer, V.O. She, and Rya Collection took the bodysuit trend to the next level. Striking a delicate balance between sexy and conservative these brands are every Instagram girl’s dream.

Animal Print


Timeless and edgy, this print isn’t going anywhere. Gossard, Hanky Panky, and Commando are just a few names that stood out from the crowd this year.

Tattoo Embroidery

Who wouldn’t want to invest in an edgy, tattooed look? Up to 45 million Americans already have at least one tattoo — why not put them on your clothing, too? From delicate tough girl to no-holds-bar badass, Myla London and Monique Moran were loud and proud at Curve NY.

Underwire Unlined

Hello, comfort. Where have you been? Ignore pokes and prods with the help of Simone Perele, Lise Charmel, Journelle, Empreinte, and Natori.

Sustainable by Surprise

Sustainability is more important than ever. When you’re looking to help your body — and the planet — invest in brands like Lise Charmel, Clo Intimo, Elissa Poppy (sustainable European Latex made from Rubber), Kala, and MilaKrasna.

Curve’s influential trade show was so successful that critics are still singing their praises a month later. The event has gotten a particular notice on social media platforms like Snapchat and Instagram. This isn’t surprising given that 78% of Americans use social media in one form or another. New brands were also able to weigh in on the affair, like Siella Montreal, who was “super pleased with the outcome” of the trade show.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans

Measure & Made Jeans and Pants: One Size Fits YOU

We all come in different shapes and sizes, each equipped with our own personal style.  So it’s no surprise that custom, made-to-measure clothing is becoming the go-to shopping option. Did you know that an estimated 68% of American women are over size 8? And even a group of women who all wear the same size can come in different shapes. These are just a few of the reason why custom, made-to-measure clothing is making an impact and why Measure & Made jeans and pants will be your go-to. They are the best fitting pants you’ll ever wear.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans Measure & Made Custom Jeans

For any woman who has struggled to find pants that fit properly, Measure & Made is your savior. As women, we are already fighting the old “one size fits all” absurdity but we’re now finding that what’s supposed to be our size, doesn’t quite fit either. We (and several women we know) are “blessed” with ample thighs, a bodacious booty, and a smaller waist; so there’s always an issue getting jeans and pants that properly fit our thighs, hips, butt, and waist.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans

Any woman whose waist is smaller than her hips and thigs knows about the dreaded waist gap. Thanks to Measure & Made unique patented sizing system, Fitlogic, we found the perfect fitting jeans. How does it work? The Co-Founders behind Measure & Made, Cricket Lee and Natasha Gabrielle Lee, conceptualized and created the Fitlogic technology, fit quiz, and a size shape decimal system to come up with your personal fit identification over a 15-yr period. So you know they are serious about making sure their pants and jeans fit perfectly.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans Measure & Made Custom Jeans

The Fitlogic Fit Quiz features questions about your height, where you gain weight the most, where do your pants feel the tightest and the type of pants you’re looking for.

Measure & Made Custom Jeans Measure & Made Custom Pants

After taking the fit quiz, our perfect size and jeans shape were classified as 10.3. Measure & Made offers women’s pants, jeans, capris, and shorts in sizes 0-18. They offer a 30-day money back guarantee and next month, they’ll be extending their sizes with the addition of sizes 20-28.

We’ll be rocking our Measure & Made jeans this week, so be sure to keep an eye on our Instagram page for our fit opinion.

Hahn Merriman Holiday 2019 Collection Presentation

Although the holiday season and holiday fashion may be far from your minds, we want to highlight a collection that has us looking toward the future, the Hahn Merriman Holiday 2019 Collection. The former style blogger turned fashion designer presented a stunning collection that celebrates her lifelong love affair with fashion. Hahn’s first holiday collection was inspired by elegant abstract influences, featuring modern, soft and bold details.

The adventurous collection, which was a mix of structured pieces, layering looks, a small variety of textures, and abstract details, featured a black, white, and grey color palette. The collection’s elegant edginess was what stood out for us. The exaggerated collars, structured draping, voluminous pieces, and modern sensibility were the stars in the crisp white looks.

The grey and black looks featured more everyday wear details. It’s quite easy to find pieces from this ready-to-wear collection to marry into your wardrobe as they pair well with many classic pieces. We love Hahn’s juxtaposition of fabrics, her tonal color palette, and her general design aesthetic. Sheer fabrications and layering pieces are prominent throughout the collection.

With her Holiday 2019 collection, Hanh Merriman isn’t recycling old style ideas, she’s inventing new ones. She founded her eponymous collection in the Spring of 2018 as a fashion and lifestyle brand that’s committed to supporting luxury manufacturing in the United States. She describes her women’s ready-to-wear’s aesthetic as “The perfect pairing of pop and restraint.”

Every season, Hanh Merriman adds the essence of her personal style and sensibility into her designs, so they can breathe accessibility and ease; expressing herself artistically through her designs. Although this is our first experience with Hanh Merriman, we hope her Holiday 2019 collection isn’t our last.

We’d love to hear what you think of the looks from the Hahn Merriman Holiday 2019 Collection? Do you have any favorite looks from the collection?

We’re GLAAD That These Brands Exist: How 5 Companies Have Supported Pride Month

In an effort to create a more inclusive world, it’s thanks to big businesses that many consumers hear about LGBTQ+ issues for the first time. It’s because of their efforts through media, marketing, and special products that even the most isolated individuals are able to tune in to what’s happening throughout the world. Today we highlight a few brands that continue to support inclusion efforts. Check out what Absolut, Sally Hansen, Bud Light, ASOS, and Express has available for Pride Month.

Through partnerships with GLAAD, a non-governmental media organization promoting LGBTQ+ advocacy and equality, the following brands deserve special recognition for their nation-wide support during Pride Month. Check these five brands out when you want to show your support.

1. Express

Express Pride Month

When you want to look good poolside, Express has got you covered (literally). The clothing brand recently launched its Love Unites Campaign in partnership with GLAAD to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community.

The campaign unveiled a completely new collection of 25 pieces of gender-fluid clothing options. For every piece of clothing purchased from the collection through July 15, Express will also donate 25% of its net income to GLAAD up to $100,000.

2. Bud Light

Bud Light Pride Month

No celebration is complete without a great beer. When you want to celebrate Pride this month, why not choose Bud Light’s new rainbow-inspired bottles?

But the Beer company isn’t simply releasing a new print for its boxes; partnering with GLAAD, Bud Light has released its first-ever rainbow aluminum bottles. Studies have shown that adding or changing a sign can benefit a business’ sales by up to 7%. For every case sold between May 27 and June 30, Bud Light pledged to donate $1 to the advocacy group for up to $150,000 in total donations.

This is in honor of the company’s 20-year anniversary working with GLAAD. GLAAD Chief Programs Officer Zeke Stokes recognized the importance of their partnership following their debut.

“For twenty consecutive years, Bud Light has partnered with GLAAD in its mission to accelerate acceptance of LGBTQ people,” Stokes noted. “Bud Light stood with the community at a time when many brands did not, and their continued outspoken support sets the bar for other global brands.

3. Absolut

Absolut Pride Month

If beer isn’t your cup of, well, beer, you can always invest in Absolut instead. The vodka powerhouse was the first spirits brand to throw its public support behind LGBTQ+ rights more than 38 years ago. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Pride, Absolut has teamed up with a number of organizations, local festivals, and activists in the community to accelerate LGBTQ+ acceptance.

Along with their social appearances, the vodka brand has also showcased a new bottle featuring a hand-painted rainbow flag design. To prove that their devotion to LGBTQ+ issues will last long after Pride Month, Absolut will stock your favorite store’s shelves throughout the rest of the year.

Best of all? The brand is also working to raise awareness and start a conversation about LGBTQ+ issues through its digital hub. Not only will this promote understanding, but the company also hopes that this conversation will inspire future endeavors for Absolut. Though the company undoubtedly relies on the help of the world’s 700,000 consulting firms on projects and manufacturing locations, getting this user feedback is vital for the company’s future success in sociopolitical movements.

4. ASOS

ASOS Pride Month

Express might be leading the charge for the middle class, but ASOS is truly a fan favorite among frugal fashionistas. As an online retailer, its managed to tap the global market of consumer spending where more than $2.86 trillion is spent each year online alone. Partnering with GLAAD for the third time, the online retailer has unveiled a collection of 50 new pieces in honor of Pride Month, including ASOS Curve and ASOS Plus styles.

ASOS notes that their collaboration with GLAAD has raised more than £200,000 in their efforts to date (more than $252,600 U.S.). This year, 100% of their net profits garnered from the collections will be donated to help GLAAD and their efforts.

5. Sally Hansen

Sally Hansen Pride Month

Sally Hansen knows that good drinks and good outfits aren’t photo-ready without beautiful nails. In its newest collaboration with GLAAD, Sally Hansen has released its Pride Collection. The collection features six Xtreme Wear shades in strikingly bold colors that represent the colors of the rainbow.

Sally Hansen Pride Month

You can order the colors online or from your local Walgreens or Ulta locations. At the Ulta locations, you can also invest in the entire collection as a gift set for only $16.99.

Celebrating the organizations who do it right is essential during Pride Month. Since 50% of all customers enter a business because of its signage, it’s expected that similar numbers will buy a product because of its packaging. If we want to encourage corporations to continue making strides for LGBTQ+ rights and advocacy, recognizing organizations that are doing it well is just as important as calling out the corporations who are getting it wrong.
