Lana Del Rey H&M, Franca Sozzani Fashion 4 Development

Franca Sozzani's Ambassadorship, Lana Del Rey's New Gig, and Mary Katrantzou's Resort Issue



Those stories and more in our daily news roundup.

  • Franca Sozzani has been named the goodwill ambassador for Fashion 4 Development, a program that works with the United Nations to encourage leaders in the industry to work on sustainable development initiatives. [WWD]

  • Newly appointed Vogue Australia editor Edwina McCann says there's a lot to live up to in her new position. "I've had to go and completely re-buy my dog walking gear, which is ridiculous," she says. "I've never felt that pressure before." [Catwalk Queen]

  • Lana Del Rey is rumored to be the new face of H&M. News reports on Friday said the singer was shooting a campaign for the brand in New York, but reps for both parties kept mum. [Styleite]

  • Talk about fast fashion: the time it takes Zara to create new product is "as short as two weeks from an idea in a designer's head to a garment on a Zara store's shelf." [Slate]

  • On the flipside, Mary Katrantzou says she isn't able to do Resort collections because her intricate prints take too long to produce. "We worked out that it takes on average four days to create a print, and we create about 40 prints a collection, so we need 160 days — that's eight months for one person, four months for two people," she said. [Vogue UK]

  • Prada partnered with artist Vahram Muratyan on a line of t-shirts (above) based on the Parallel Universes GIFs he created to commemorate the brand's Fall 2012 campaign. [High Snobiety]

  • M Missoni launched a Facebook page this week. [M Missoni Facebook]
