Henry Mae Robinson Mitchell’s name should have been in Webster’s dictionary next to the word “survivor.” She was snatched from the brink of death so many times that she actually gave that word a new definition.

When Ruti Zisser – an Israeli living in the United States where she runs a chain of boutiques selling items by Israeli designers – sits down for a chat during a visit to Israel, she remembers her American PR woman Jessica with a faint pang of guilt. Jessica, it seems, preps Zisser for every interaction with the media and advises her what to say and how to say it. “In America, things are done differently,” says Zisser, 38, but immediately admits that there, too, she tends to ignore Jessica’s advice. “She has a very particular idea about the identity she wants to build for my label, but I keep telling her that that isn’t who I am, that it doesn’t match my vision. But she’s willing to be flexible.”

Brace yourselves, black-fashion addicts. Color may be making its biggest comeback since the 1960s.
Women’s clothes, handbags and shoes appearing at chains from Bloomingdale’s to Nordstrom Inc. (JWN) are more colorful than usual for a spring season. The collections to be unveiled when New York Fashion Week begins Feb. 9 may push the trend into fall.
The multicolored palette will help spur a 4 percent gain in women’s apparel sales this year, faster than the 2.5 percent increase to $109.6 billion recorded in the 12 months ended in November, according to NPD Group Inc. It will generate faster bag and shoe sales, too, the Port Washington, New York-based market research firm said.

A young fashion designer from the German city of Hanover is revolutionising high fashion by designing clothes with a staple she can find in her fridge — milk.
Anke Domaske, 28, has developed a fabric called QMilch made from high concentrations of the milk protein casein — the first man-made fibre produced entirely without chemicals.
“It feels like silk and it doesn’t smell — you can wash it just like anything else,” Domaske told Reuters.
Made from all natural materials, the QMilch fabric is ecological but also has many health benefits, said Domaske, who also said the amino acids in the protein are antibacterial, anti-ageing and can help regulate both blood circulation and body temperature.

As designer of Louis Vuitton, whose show takes place on the last day of Paris fashion week, Marc Jacobs gets to close the catwalk season – and he could not resist signing off with a wink.
While the March show was staged on a set depicting Claridges in the early hours of the morning, and ended with the sight of Kate Moss’s bottom as she exited the catwalk in hotpants and leather boots, smoking a cigarette, for this show, the wink was less saucy but, in its own way, just as provocative.
It is the fashion world’s worst-kept secret that Jacobs is the frontrunner to replace Galliano at Dior, with an announcement perhaps in the next few weeks, although negotiations are reported to have stalled over Jacobs’s salary expectations.
Before this show, journalists were warned that Jacobs would not be answering any Dior-related questions. That, however, did not mean he had no messages to convey.
