The OPB trade fair will bring together 100 of Italy’s most distinguished manufacturers and suppliers with 100 of NJAL’s innovative emerging fashion talent from five countries.

The second annual OPB is being held in Vicenza (known for its weaving, fine leather goods, jewellery and textiles), Italy from May 15 to 18.

Here are 21 of the 100 designers from NJAL (Not Just A Label) who have been selected to be part of OPB this year. NJAL is the world’s largest online designer community that supports emerging designers.

Best dressed at the Met Gala 2015

Forget the Oscars, or indeed even the various fashion weeks around the world, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Gala in New York City is THE fashion event of the year. The annual fundraising do is really the only event to be seen at (though in a shocking twist, this year the event banned social media and selfies). Each year the celebrity and fashion type laden event has a theme, and this year it was themed around the China: through the looking glass exhibit which will launch this month at the MET. Not all of the attendees acknowledge the dress code, it must be said, however every year they all bring the drama. And it is magnificent.
