Tiger Woods draws opinions from fashion world after unveiling of his Sun Day Red apparel line

LOS ANGELES — Tiger Woods might still be donning his familiar red polo shirt, but the iconic golfer has taken a bold leap forward with a new logo and clothing line partnering alongside a different company that could elevate his fashion identity.

Woods introduced his lifestyle brand Sun Day Red on Monday evening the day after the Super Bowl and during the middle of Hollywood’s awards season. He’s transitioning to the next phase of his career with TaylorMade Golf after he parted ways with Nike after 27 years.

Some in the fashion community believe Woods can survive without sporting Nike’s popular swoosh on chest. He’ll now have logo of a tiger with 15 stripes, signifying his 15 championship titles, along with apparel that includes cashmere hoodies, sleek sweaters and footwear with his brand’s name etched on them.

“I thought it was very refreshing to see him kick off this new chapter,” said Allen Onyia, co-founder of UpscaleHype, a social media account that chronicles stylish celebrity wardrobes. “The brand has a lot of potential, with Tiger being the face of it, and the machine pushing it. I have nothing but positive thoughts.”

Onyia said Woods made a good move by branching out into a market beyond the golfing realm — especially after the golfer made his own imprint in the sport over the years with his signature cap, sleek red polo and trousers.

“The key thing that they’re trying to do is separate it from just becoming a performance brand,” he said. “They’re tapping into the lifestyle market, adopting different fabrics, textures and showing how it can still be functional. They’re tapping into premium quality, but not losing the performance aspect as well. I’m excited to see the marriage of the two.”

Woods, 48, felt now is the right time to

Kristin Juszczyk’s clothing line doesn’t stand alone in NFL fashion

In February for Black History Month, USA TODAY Sports is publishing the series “29 Black Stories in 29 Days.” We examine the issues, challenges and opportunities Black athletes and sports officials continue to face after the nation’s reckoning on race following the murder of George Floyd in 2020. This is the fourth installment of the series.

This week Kiya Tomlin posted a message on TikTok and her words, despite such a short video, said so much.

“Kiya Tomlin here,” she started. “Wife of 27 years to Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. So all this talk about where is all the really cool licensed NFL apparel for women. I just have to say: Been here, been doing that.”

The video then switched to images of women wearing Tomlin’s NFL inspired designs. The message was powerful and clear.

“After seeing all the commotion about Taylor Swift,” Tomlin said in an interview with USA TODAY Sports, “I just wanted to say, ‘I’m here. I’ve been doing this. Here’s my work.'”

SUPER BOWL CENTRAL: Latest Super Bowl 58 news, stats, odds, matchups and more.

I’m the guy who wears his pajamas into the grocery store so fashion isn’t my thing but by all accounts Tomlin’s designs, including her NFL licensed apparel, are stylish, and high quality. Also, her track record in this space is lengthy, starting in 2014, and she says her products are cut and sewn in America. She’s a small business success story.

So why have so few people heard of what she’s doing? That’s a great question and the answer is nuanced. But it cannot be answered without the context of the story of Kristin Juszczyk.

She is the wife of 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk. Kristin, too, started a clothing line and like Tomlin, she was able to get

A new Evangelion collectible figure showcases the iconic Rei Ayanami as a motorsports model, homaging the franchise’s real-life racing team.

The collaboration was made available for retail on Jan. 9, 2024, several months after the items were presented at Rakuten Fashion Week TOKYO 2024 S/S, also pictured above. The fashion show took place from Aug. 28 to Sep. 2, 2023, meaning prospective buyers can check out the clothes in actual use. The announcement also quickly follows the Rei Ayanami Pit Walk figure, a motorsport model-inspired take on the notably reserved character.

It’s little surprise that almost 30 years on from Hideaki Anno’s Neon Genesis Evangelion anime debut, the series continues to be immortalized through new collaborations and projects. The series was recently featured alongside some of the most popular anime of the new generation at last year’s Christmas

Detroit fashion designer Ken Walker to showcase new clothing line in Italy

Native Detroiter and fashion designer Ken Walker will travel to Italy to showcase his upcoming clothing line. 

In collaboration with the fashion collective Detroitissimi and sponsored by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), the K. Walker Collective will be part of an interactive booth experience at Pitti Immagine Uomo — a global event highlighting men’s fashion — Jan. 9-12 in Florence, Italy.

The Detroit School of Arts graduate says the city has always been a place for fashion — and now it’s time to spread Detroit’s style internationally.

“I do think that Detroit has always been this trailblazing city for fashion. We just haven’t got the recognition for it,” Walker said on CultureShift. “So to be a part of that has been incredible from every standpoint.”

Walker opened his flagship store in 2022, becoming the first private label brand in Midtown Detroit’s Cass Corridor.

Walker is also a professor at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. He believes it’s important for Detroiters, especially young people, see it’s possible to own a brand and the place that houses it.

“To have students not only look at me as like this professor…you have a business right down the street from the school,” said Walker. “So for me, it’s showing them that it’s possible, it’s accessible and that you can do it here in Detroit.”

Kylie Jenner on Motherhood, Social Media, and Her New Clothing Line

As the first of her family members to start a successful brand (and become the second most-followed woman on Instagram), Kylie Jenner is a testament to the power of business savvy in the age of the internet. The reality star and beauty entrepreneur beloved for her relatability and robust pout has always blazed her own trail, often with a handy assist from her momager Kris, from launching lip kits at the ripe age of 18 to defying all expectations and becoming a widely-reported billionaire. Now, she’s sort of charting new territory: designing a clothing line—this time, all on her own. (Jenner previously launched the fashion brand Kendall & Kylie with her sister at PacSun in 2013.) Her latest venture, Khy, a riff on her nickname, is a collection of affordable high-fashion pieces that hopes to redefine the modern wardrobe with inclusive sizing and an accessible price point, while offering a fresh take on quiet luxury. Ahead of Khy’s official launch, we talked with Jenner about her eponymous label, trends she avoids, and matching with her daughter, Stormi.


Why did you decide to start a fashion line?

I felt like it was the perfect time [in my life]. I was having kids, and it’s always been a dream of mine to have a fashion line, especially one like this.

Is it different from or similar to helming a beauty brand?

You know what, it’s been really similar [so far]. For me, fashion and beauty really go together. My makeup and hair are important to every piece that I put on my body, and I really think it could make or break a look. You can take a simple black dress or a simple faux leather mini to another level. I creative direct Kylie Cosmetics, and I’ve been doing the same thing

Kylie Jenner Launches Khy, a High-Fashion Clothing Line

Make no mistake: Kylie Jenner is already a bona fide fashion girlie. As the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner conglomerate, the 26-year-old has thus far distinguished herself from her sisters by becoming synonymous with the beauty world—a feat due in no small part to the viral, instantly sold-out offerings over at Kylie Cosmetics. Now, Jenner is directing her business chops toward the fashion realm with Khy, a new clothing line.

Celebrity-founded clothing brands are hardly new; just look at the endeavors of older sisters Khloé and Kim Kardashian, who run Good American and Skims, respectively. Jenner intends to carve a niche for herself by positioning Khy as a high-fashion brand filtered through a more accessibly priced and sized lens—the better to serve shoppers of different backgrounds.

“Khy is a homage to the limitless possibilities of fashion. We are breaking down barriers and will redefine the meaning of a designer brand, with creativity and quality at a better price,” Jenner said in a press release. “I wanted to make Khy a platform for our customers to have the opportunity to experience fashion, through new designers and brands, but at a more accessible price.”

Khy will collaborate “with designers, iconic brands, and influential cultural figures,” per the release. For its debut collection, Jenner partnered with Namilia founders Nan Li and Emilia Pfohl to create a 12-piece capsule of faux-leather pants, coats, tops, and basics, with prices ranging from $48 to $198 and sizes from XXS to 4X. The collection will be available to shop on khy.com on November 1.

Western NY clothing line joins rise of gender-fluid fashion

Michael and Josean Vargas-Rodriguez have been in the fashion industry for over a decade and started by making accessories from their 700-square-foot apartment.

“Luci and Dona naturally evolved about five years ago where a lot of our queer family were seeking someone to make clothing for them or just have someone fit something for them that was understanding of the special needs of both Trans and queer individuals,” said Michael Vargas-Rodriguez, co-owner of Luci and Dona Boutique on Monroe Avenue in Rochester.

The brand Luci and Dona was inspired by their drag names and now their gender-fluid clothing business has evolved into something much bigger with a new storefront location.

“What really inspired us to create this space was our own need to be creative and be open and have a space where we could be ourselves,” said Josean.

“We realized we really wanted to be more visible especially today with a lot of anti-drag, anti-trans issues going on nationally, internationally as well, so it was really important to not be so hidden anymore,” said Michael.

A survey last year by Klarna and Dynata found that the United States is leading the way with gender-fluid fashion with 36% of U.S. consumers that purchased fashion outside of their gender identity in 2022 but there is still work to be done.

“Like right now the programs that I’m using to create some of the patterns that I want won’t let me use measurements unless I say I’m using a female or a male body,” Josean said. “A body is a body and a pattern is a pattern, you know, it doesn’t matter how the person identifies as long as it fits the right, your waist your chest and your hips.”

And they want to show the community that fashion doesn’t have to

Catholic Fashion Designer Enters the Convent After Co-Creating Modest Clothing Line

Olivia and Veronica dreamed of creating a Catholic clothing brand for women.

Shortly before seeing that dream come true, one of them felt a different calling: a vocation to religious life.

Olivia recently made her temporary vows with the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne.

Litany, the Catholic clothing brand they founded, shared their recent reunion at Olivia’s (currently Sister Maria Dominique) first profession of vows.

Although both founders grew up on opposite sides of the United States, their search for a faith community united their paths.

“What started as a friendship over Christ, coffee, and conscious clothing, soon blossomed into a business idea as they both experienced the problems facing the fashion industry first-hand,” the brand stated on its website.

The company’s Instagram also listed the path both young women took on their journey: fabric shopping in college, their participation in a panel on modest fashion which inspired the company’s creation, opening a bank account for Litany, their first photo shoot, and Olivia joining religious life.

“Litany is possible because of [Sister Maria Dominique’s] generous, artistic soul,” the post says. “Knowing she was entering religious life, she still poured her heart into laying the foundation and making our first collection with Veronica. We are so joyful today. Please join us in praying for her as she lives out her vocation!”

Sister Maria Dominique studied fashion design at Parsons School for Design – The New School and created a collection inspired by the Sorrowful Mysteries for her thesis. Currently, she spiritually supports the brand through her prayer.

A Clothing Brand Focused on Drawing the Soul to God

On its website, Litany stated that its mission is “to offer women beautifully tailored, ethically manufactured, and functionally sustainable garments.”

“We believe you are more than just a body; you’re a
