WWDMAGIC Announces Strategic Partnership With FashionGo

The two industry leaders forge a strategic alliance to better serve the fashion industry

WWDMAGIC, a subsidiary of UBM Fashion Group and the largest showcase of women’s apparel and accessories in the fashion industry, today announced a strategic partnership with online business-to-business fashion marketplace, NHN Global Inc., doing business as FashionGo. This alliance between two industry leaders, with its massive shared base of buyers and vendors, will bring about innovation and strategic influence to the dynamic wholesale industry.

WWDMAGIC has been the pinnacle destination for the trendiest women’s and juniors’ brands, offering the largest selection of apparel and accessories in the industry. FashionGo is the number one online B2B marketplace providing one of the fastest growing global e-commerce platforms offering buyers 24/7 access to its vast collection of wholesale fashion, allowing them to shop the latest trends at the best prices. This pairing of two leaders in their respective industries will bring about the best of both worlds – the sought-after face-to-face engagement and relationship building of the tradeshow experience and the speed and ease of doing business online.

“The fashion business is changing and we believe that together, WWDMAGIC and FashionGo as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” said Kelly Helfman, Vice President of WWDMAGIC. “Both WWDMAGIC and FashionGo are powerhouses in their own right; together we’ll be able to fully support the needs of our industry by playing off each other’s strengths. This partnership will give brands and buyers an enhanced experience that merges both Digital and B2B events.”

To kickoff this partnership, FashionGo will introduce “Kelly’s MAGIC Monday” on their site starting June 25th. Here, Helfman will highlight trends, offer industry insights and profile the people behind beloved brands and stores. In addition to offering expertise to FashionGo’s active base of buyers, buyers will have immediate access to products highlighted – prioritizing the “see now, buy now” mentality. The addition of Kelly’s MAGIC Monday to the FashionGo site offers the online buying industry a human touch that is the hallmark of the traditional tradeshow experience. In addition to Kelly’s MAGIC Monday, FashionGo CEO, Daniel Lee, will attend MAGIC’s August showcase and host a seminar for attending buyers. FashionGo will also host an onsite cocktail event for brands and buyers to network on the show floor. And, in an effort to keep the tradeshows more environmentally friendly and hydrated, FashionGo will create water stations throughout the show floor with refillable water bottle for brands and buyers!

“The partnership between WWDMAGIC and FashionGo allows each respective company to address the needs of their offline and online audiences,” said Daniel Lee, CEO of FashionGo. “A large part of the fashion business has shifted online but brands and buyers are increasingly feeling the need for an experience offline. This partnership will bring an omnichannel experience that has not yet been done in the fashion industry.”

JUKE ROSS x Fresh Roses

Today, Guyanese singer/songwriter JUKE ROSS returns with his latest single “Fresh Roses” via Republic Records.

Listen HERE.

“Fresh Roses” is JUKE ROSS’ first single following his debut EP “Grey.” “Like a Fresh Rose needs rain and nurturing so does new love. The song is about being caught in the space between trying to latch on to the bliss of new love while escaping the sting of the past,” say JUKE“Fresh Roses” showcases his signature acoustic style and sets the tone for what Juke has in store for 2018.

Located on South America’s northern mainland, the celebratory and life-affirming spirit of Guyana remains an undercurrent of JUKE ROSS’s songwriting. The youngest of 14 siblings, he can recall falling in love with music at a young age. The family radio played everything from Caribbean standards to Bob Dylan and Michael Jackson, and he would sit and listen for hours on end. Inspired by his nurse mom, he enrolled in medical school. In the midst of his studies, guitar beckoned to him. JUKE feverishly began penning music. Among those early compositions, he created “Colour Me, which became an independent phenomenon, landed him a deal with Republic Records, and positioned him as one of 2017’s most exciting artists to watch!

Oxygen Media Presents “Serial Killer with Piers Morgan”

PREMIERING MONDAY, JULY 16 AT 7PM ET/PT

Oxygen Media, the network for high-quality crime programming, will debut “Serial Killer with Piers Morgan,” hosted and executive produced by renown journalist Piers Morgan,  beginning with two episodes Monday, July 16 at 7PM ET/PT and Monday, July 23 at 7PM ET/PT. With unprecedented access to maximum security prisons, “Serial Killer with Piers Morgan” explores the minds of the most depraved serial killers for the first time. Having never spoken on camera about their crimes until now, each chilling hour centers around Piers’ up close and personal interviews with a killer.

 

Piers delves into the minds of killers who haunted communities for decades and attempts to discover what drove them to murder. He also meets with victims’ families and law enforcement to understand how the actions of these men wreaked havoc across America as police raced against time to try and catch them before they struck again. In the premiere, Piers meets with Mark Riebe. Riebe was convicted of one murder but confessed to police to the abduction and killing of twelve women, and even though he is incarcerated for just one murder and has since withdrawn these confessions, police believe if true Riebe is one of the worst serial killers in Florida’s history. In the next episode, Piers goes to Lorenzo Gilyard, also known as the Kansas City Strangler. For nearly two decades Gilyard brought fear to the streets of Kansas City, Missouri. Incarcerated for six murders, he is the prime suspect in a further seven. Until now, he has never spoken about his crimes and Piers sets out to discover what drove this seemingly ordinary man to kill.

Bermuda Triangle releases new song

Today, Bermuda Triangle shared a new original song, Till The End Of Days. Vocalists Brittany Howard, Becca Mancari and Jesse Lafser shine on the tender track, which was written by Lafser. Stream/download Till The End Of Days.

Jesse Lafser says, It’s about friendship, itߣs about love, it’s about the Triangle. This one goes out to my past life brothers.

Bermuda Triangle will headline Colony in Woodstock, NY on July 25 and the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on July 26. Festival performances include XPoNential in Camden, NJ (July 27) and the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI (July 29). To purchase tickets, visit www.BermudaTriangleBand.com.

Earlier this week, the trio performed on World Cafe. The segment is now available for streaming HERE.

Till The End Of Days follows Bermuda Triangle’s earlier releases, Rosey and Suzanne. Rolling Stone observed,The first served as the trio’s debut and marries gentle strings with rich vocal harmonies, while the latter, featuring Howard on lead vocals, incorporates a healthy dose of soul and even a bit of bossa nova, with jazzy minor chords and a propulsive programmed beat. Stream Rosey and Suzanne HERE.

The SF Weekly, reviewing Bermuda Triangle’s January 2018 show in San Francisco, praised the warm, front porch ambiance of the evening and noted, While the songs performed felt polished, they did all carry the energy of an impromptu group singalong ߝ just one where every member of said group is a phenomenally beautiful singerߪThis band is not simply the sum of their songs. They are not only the angelic highs of their voices bound in unisonߪWhat they are in fact are three friends in search of a porch.

The artists have also been busy with their individual endeavors. Becca Mancari’s debut album, Good Woman, was named by Rolling Stone as one of the top Americana/Country albums of 2017. Jesse Lafser’s follow-up to 2015ߣs Raised On the Plains is due out later this year. Alabama ShakesBrittany Howard recently performed at the Jazz Foundation Of America’s A Great Night In Harlem gala and inducted Sister Rosetta Tharpe into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the 2018 ceremony.

Florence + the Machine x Big God

Florence + the Machine unveil a new song, “Big God,” and video today—watch it, choreographed by Akram Khan and Florence and directed by Autumn de Wilde, HERE. “Big God” is the third track to be released from Florence + the Machine’s hugely anticipated fourth studio album High As Hope, out June 29 on Republic Records.

Listen to Big God HERE.

Watch the music video HERE.

Says Florence:

‘Big God’ was written about that feeling when someone has not replied to your text, the modern phenomenon of ‘Ghosting’ which is one of my favourite words but not my favourite feeling. I was describing it to someone and they said to me ‘You need a big god’, as if the need in me were so cavernous, it would take something enormous to fill it. Probably something bigger than a text message.

It’s always been a very physical song. I saw a dance piece in my head as I was writing it, so to co choreograph something with Akram Khan was a huge honour. Autumn de Wilde fully understood what I was trying to do. The power of the desire within the void, left with yourself to rage and wonder and really it is yourself you are raging against. Not the ghost.

Akram Khan adds:

For me, this encounter with Florence and her powerful song somehow navigated itself towards the element—water. But the direction of the dance also became a resistance to all things that wish to oppress, a sort of protest dance and yet a celebratory one towards a new found freedom.

Furthermore, the band have added additional shows to their 23-city North American fall headline tour, including second nights at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl September 26, Washington, D.C.’s The Anthem October 6 and New York’s Barclays Center October 10. Tickets are available to the public Friday, June 29, with pre-sales beginning Monday, June 25. Previously announced dates—on sale now—include Seattle, Portland, Nashville, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago and more. Visit florenceandthemachine.net for more information.

High As Hope was co-produced by Florence and Emile Haynie and features contributions from Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Tobias Jesso JrKelsey Lu, Jamie xx and Thomas Barlett. Watch the A.G. Rojas-directed video for first official single “Hunger” here.
