Bionic Yarn.

No, not from Spiderman, but yarn and fabrics made up of single-use plastic bottles--many found floating in the ocean--sewed into hip clothes. That's the idea behind the company Bionic Yarn, co-founded by Tyson Toussant, partnered with ocean protector Paul Watson, and with recording artist Pharrell Williams as their Creative Director.



They make denim jeans, snowboarding jackets, boat covers, furniture, and other products using their innovating product.

Their concept is to clean the oceans and promote using reusable products. For instance, they promote facts about plastic bottle usage:







Apparently, since "plastic bottles are made up of the same polymer as polyester," Bionic Yarn can bypass the use of crude oil-based yarn products through their own recycling process.




They refine the bottles into chips and then heat and pull-apart the fibers and spin them into yarn. They can then mix the yarn with cotten or wool for whatever item they want to sew.




These aren't your Mama's recycled pants.

On the tails of the release of more realistic Barbie body types, Hijarbie is the fashionable Instagram project of Haneefa Adam, a Nigerian woman who runs a modest fashion company called Hanie. A sizeable population of women in the world are Muslim and wear hijab, so it's no surprise why this Barbie who dresses fashionably in hijabs and abayas is so popular. 



Barbie is known for her beautiful outfits, and this is no exception. Adam is hoping to introduce some realistic diversity into Barbie's closet. Much of the inspiration for this doll comes from fashion icons who also specialize pairing their hijab with stylish clothes.

This young woman exemplifies bravery.


Laxmi (only goes by her first name) survived an acid attack over a decade ago. The depraved soulless perpetrators, an older man and his friend, poured acid on her face and arms after she turned down the older man's marriage proposal.


She was 15 years old dude.


After trucking through a series of hefty priced medical treatments and a few surgeries, Laxmi has come out as an impressive activist; and acts as the literal 'face of courage' for a new fashion campaign in India.


Her public interest litigation catalyzed the landmark judgment in 2013, when the Supreme Court called for restrictions on the sale of acids and also greater compensation for any victims. Just a heads up—there are around 1,000 acid attacks in India every year, and these victims face massive, almost crippling social taboo as result.


To this day, Laxmi continues onwards with her campaign through the Chhanv Foundation and Stop Acid Attacks. She was awarded the International Women of Courage Award by Michelle Obama in 2014.

A merry mix between Zoolander and Santa, Yorkdale Shopping Center in Toronto, Ontario has employed the most fashion-foward Santa any mall Santa could hope to be. See how this new Saint Nick is nailing Holiday cheer, with merry modeling poses, hot holiday fashion tips, and festive selfies with everyone (including Justin Bieber).

Remember the long lines and human stampedes for Furby and Cabbage Patch Dolls in the '90s?

Well, this is sort of like that. But for cheaply-made clothing.

Balmain for H&M's Collection, promoted by Kylie Jenner, dropped today across the globe and was sold out in many stores within seconds. Videos showing the chaos starting popping up all over the Internet.

Shoppers in Paris can be seen above sprinting their way through the store, ripping clothes from mannequins.

In Croatia, people got pushy.

And Istanbul was a total mess.

Oh, and the website crashed when the line went on sale this morning.

Hug your family tight tonight, people of the world. There is no more Balmain. The end is near.

Backstreet's back, alright?

'90s music fans were all amazed when the Backstreet Boys reunited to close out the Balmain x H&M fashion show in New York City last night.

The group met on stage to perform their singles "I Want It That Way" and "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)."

Group members Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, Nick Carter, and Howie Dorough were all present for the performance.

And McLean talked to Rolling Stone about a possible tour with the Spice Girls.

Someone please make this happen.
