ThirdLove’s TL Effect to Support Businesses Led by Women of Color

ThirdLove has always strived to make every woman feel confident and celebrated—it’s a mission that’s been the driving force behind their brand since its inception. As brands respond to worldwide demonstrations against the senseless killing of Black people by reflecting on their commitment to diversity, ThirdLove has moved beyond social statements of solidarity.

On Wednesday, June 17, ThirdLove announced The TL Effect, an initiative that will support women of color-led businesses through monetary grants and mentorship. Each quarter, the ThirdLove team will select a female entrepreneur of color to support. As part of the multi-pronged plan of action, ThirdLove will provide a portion of its office space to entrepreneurs to utilize for their day-to-day business operations, including meetings and photoshoots. ThirdLove is also pledging to highlight and raise brand awareness for these businesses through its social platforms.

    Dior Made Tiny Haute Couture Gowns for Autumn-Winter 2021

    From miniature horses to baby Air Jordans to tiny burritos YouTubers make for their pet hamsters, it is universally known that tiny versions of things are inexplicably cuter than their normal-sized counterparts. (The only exception to this rule is cupcakes, which are not nearly as adorable as full-sized cakes.) Dior took note and delivered its fall-winter couture collection in miniature proportions, proving that big things really do come in small packages.

    Paying homage to Théâtre de la Mode, a 1945 traveling fashion exhibition that promoted Parisian couture during World War II, Dior presented a pint-sized collection of daywear sets in dark tweeds, softly pleated Grecian gowns, and modern interpretations of the Dior’s iconic New Look silhouette. Keeping in line with the rules of couture, each look is made entirely by hand by the Parisian house’s atelier, 40 percent smaller than its original size.

    As with previous collections, creative director
