The oversized jacket added warmth as well as an interesting detail to the full outfit. Underneath, Hudgens wore a black mesh mini dress with black undergarments that peeked out under the sheer material. Hudgens tied her hair up and added a black leather bag to the look.

Fashion Start-Ups Report Results

  • Newly public Warby Parker, as well as Poshmark, ThredUp and The RealReal report quarterly results this week

  • Online sales show signs of plateauing after surging during the pandemic

  • Shopify and Amazon recently reported disappointing results

Lagos Fashion Week has announced a 500 million naira ($1.2 million) relief grant to support 30 Nigerian fashion brands, part of a larger government program to ease the impact of Covid-19 on Nigerian businesses while also increasing the country’s export capacity.
