Sustainability-Focused Site Market45 Prepares to Launch

Four years after starting Factory45, a program that helps entrepreneurs start sustainable and ethically made clothing companies, Shannon Lohr will launch the online platform Market45 to help them sell their designs.
To date, about 200 companies have cycled through Factory45, which is run from Somerville, Mass. One of the better-known ones is Vetta, a brand that started in 2016 offering a five-piece capsule collection that can make up 30 different outfits. Lohr said she has been hearing from friends, colleagues and online followers that they want to shop Factory45 brands and were looking for a one-stop site for sustainable and ethical labels. As of Nov. 1, 20 brands of women’s, men’s and children’s apparel as well as accessories will be offered on the Market45 site when it goes live.
The platform will route visitors to each brand’s respective sites, with Lohr gleaning 5 percent of sales. Sotela, Dallas Daws, Vesta and Thom Kelly are some of the women’s apparel brands that will be on the site when it launches.
Factory45 initially had 10 companies that each paid $ 500 for six months of guidance. Lohr said that was immediately invested back into the program. She drew from her own start-up experience. Wanting to experience

So Fly: Bally Prepares to Take Tokyo With Swizz Beatz x Shok-1 Project

LONDON — Halloween may be three weeks away, but Bally is already dreaming of skeletons, flies and skulls, part of its new collaboration with Swizz Beatz, and the London-based spray paint artist known as Shok-1.
Bally will reveal the capsule accessories collection on Wednesday during a flash, two-day visit to Tokyo where Shok-1 will also unveil a mural on the side of Park Building in Shibuya and host a pop-up gallery at the brand’s Ginza flagship, its largest store at 8,640 square feet.
This is the latest collaboration between Bally and Kasseem Dean, the music producer known as Swizz Beatz, who works with the Swiss brand to find talent for one-off collections.
This latest offer includes totes, clutches, high-tops and hoodies with Shok-1’s delicate X-ray paintings of flies, skeleton torsos and bony hands that form one of music’s favorite gestures, a fist with the pinkie and index fingers extended.

Ariel Winter looks ahead, prepares for life after Modern Family and Sofia the First

Between recording dialogue for “Sofia the First: The Secret Library” and getting ready to take her College Boards in real life, Ariel Winter has really been hitting the books lately.

2015-10-12-1444619203-344389-Storykeeper5.jpg

“I just took the SAT yesterday,” Ariel admitted during a recent phone interview. “Which — I have to admit — kind of freaked me out.”

But given that Alex Dunphy (i.e., the character that Alex plays on ABC‘s “Modern Family“) just went through this exact same thing last season on that Emmy Award-winning sitcom … Well, Winter finds it oddly familiar to now be visiting campuses and filling out her college applications in real life.

“I’m in my senior year at Campbell Hall. I and the other 150 students in my class have ’til the end of this year to finish writing our college entrance essays and then send in our applications. After that, we all just wait ’til March to find out which schools actually accepted us,” Ariel continued. “Me? I’m concentrating on colleges that have a good Poli-Sci program so that I can then take all of the classes that are required for law school.”

2015-10-12-1444619241-8747628-Storykeeper4.jpg

Why law school? Given how transient working in the entertainment industry can often be, Winter feels that it’s important to have skills in other fields as well. Not as a back-up plan per se. But rather to be able to grow as a person and a professional.

“I’ve always wanted to do something in the social sciences arena. Plus I love history. And given that I have always been good at arguing, I just thought that that skill might come in handy if I were to ever become a lawyer,” Ariel laughed.

Mind you, the real irony here is — given that, the entire time she was taking classes at Campbell Hall, Winter was working on “Modern Family” AND “Sofia the First” — Ariel is the one young actor out there who doesn’t actually seem to need a back-up plan.

2015-10-12-1444619276-5946438-Storykeeper3.jpg

“I’ve been working in this business for over a decade now. One of my very first job was for Disney. I voiced one of Thumper’s sisters on ‘Bambi II.’ I followed that one up with a Cartoon Network series called ‘Tickle U.’ I was doing voiceover work long before I ever appeared on camera,” Ariel recalled.

But then came “Sofia the First” (which Disney Junior not only renewed for a fourth season back in April but they also have a spin-off series, “Elena of Avalor,” already in production). And from the moment Winter got the script that she’d be using to audition for this animated series, Ariel knew that “Sofia” was going to be something special.

“You have to understand that — when I first auditioned for this show — I only had part of the script. Just my sides,” Winter explained. “But based on what I was reading, I could immediately see that Sofia was going to be a very different Disney Princess. One that both little girls and little boys would be able to embrace.”

2015-10-12-1444619314-9138160-Storykeeper1.jpg

And speaking of princesses that little boys like … Merida, the fierce, red-haired heroine from Pixar‘s “Brave” will be putting in an appearance in “Sofia the First: The Secret Library.” This four-part story arc begin on Monday, October 12th at 9 a.m. ET/PT.

“And what’s really great about ‘The Secret Library’ is that this is the episode where (SPOILER ALERT!) Sofia becomes the Storykeeper. This introduces a whole new element to the show. Because — from here on in — Sofia’s going to be able to magically enter storybooks and then finish all of these novels & tales, kicking butt and saving whoever needs saving,” Ariel enthused. “I also love that this new element of ‘Sofia the First’ is set in a library because I love books.”

Speaking of books … To help support this particular set of “Sofia the First” episodes, Disney Publishing Worldwide has released an illustrated storybook & e-book version of “The Secret Library.” Not only that, but a “Secret Library” game went live on the WATCH Disney Junior website earlier this month.

2015-10-12-1444619349-5148353-Storykeeper2.jpg

“And while all of that stuff is cool — likewise all of the ‘Sofia the First’ merchandise I see whenever I visit a Disney theme park or stop by my local Disney Store — you want to know what I really like best about voicing Sofia? It’s when my niece introduces me to one of her little friends and then says that my Dooda — she calls me Dooda — is the voice of Sofia the First. It’s always fun to watch a little kid try and process that information,” Winter stated.
