Nike Lunar Cross Element Workout Shoe

Even during the summer months, boot camp continues to be a fast favorite of the female athlete. The high intensity training typically lasts more than an hour and includes a running element. With this method in mind, Nike designers set out to create a footwear solution equipped for lengthier workouts completed on a variety of surfaces. The Nike Lunar Cross Element proves to be versatile enough to handle not only the run to and from a boot camp class, but also the variety of movements required throughout the workout. Cushioning was an important consideration for these longer, cardio-heavy workouts.

You probably already now that The Nike Lunar Cross Element provides cushioning, durability and flexibility for high intensity workouts.  But do you know where to buy these shoes?  We suggest that you shop for them at The Forum Shops at Caesars in Las Vegas if you are going to be in Vegas any time in the near future.

In addition to sneakers, trend setters have many other aspects of their wardrobe to consider.  Here are a few tips regarding Fall 2014 from Caesars.

Doneger Fashion Advisory Service

The trendsetter fashion blog typically spotlights individual fashion designers, stylists, and celebrities that are making their mark on the world of fashion.  However, we will also be featuring clothing industry companies that help identify trends and provide resources and services to assist the industry.  Today we are presenting to you The Doneger Group.

Founded in 1946, The Doneger Group is one of the fashion industry's leading sources of global trend intelligence, focused merchandising direction, expert analysis of the retail business and comprehensive market information. This company has clearly been around for a very long time and is well respected in the garment industry.  Although Apparel Search Media currently has no direct relationship with The Doneger Group we believe that it is important for us to inform our viewers about this long established resource.  It is the mission of the Apparel Search Company to help members of the fashion industry.  We feel that The Doneger Groups services are beneficial to both large and small clothing companies.

One of the goals at Doneger is to pioneer their clients forward in an increasingly competitive, consumer-oriented world with a company-wide culture of innovation, creativity, and a deep level of trust and personal engagement in their client relationships.

Building on their rich heritage and reputation, they strategically grow the business of their clients through the addition of new services and the development of specific divisions in support and anticipation of the ever-changing direction of the industry.  It is our opinion that The Doneger Group is an essential resource to the retail, manufacturing and fashion communities.

The Doneger Group – Henry Doneger Associates, Inc.
463 Seventh Avenue
New York, NY 10018
212 564-1266

The company currently has a few divisions that offer various services for their clients: Tobe Report, Doneger Creative Services, and Directive West.

Consumers buy fashions, not trends. This small – but important – nuance was identified by Miss Tobe Coller Davis, a visionary and true authority in the field of fashion and retail.
In 1927 Miss Tobe founded her eponymous fashion advisory service company, based in New York City. The Fashion Report from Tobe delivered news to major retailers on not just fashion shifts, styling references and design details but also consumer desires, lifestyle influences and head-to-toe wardrobing.  More importantly, Tobe offered the retailer insightful analysis, strategic and tactical recommendations for what to do with these ideas.
Miss Tobe spent her days meeting with and advising retailers and manufacturers. Evenings were devoted to seeing and observing the newest, most inspiring and interesting fashions in art, style and culture. During her overseas travels, she was among the first to report from European fashion shows via cablegram. In a 1937 article, Delineator Magazine referred to Miss Tobe as fashion’s first stylist. An arbiter of taste, Miss Tobe’s well-informed understanding and opinions on the direction of fashion and consumer shifts made her company’s services the most highly sought-after in the industry.
In addition to running her business, Miss Tobe penned a nationally syndicated newspaper column called “Tobe Says.” She was also a founding member of The Fashion Group International, along with Eleanor Roosevelt, Edith Head and Elizabeth Arden in 1928. Ten years later, Miss Tobe and former fashion editor Julia Coburn joined forces to create the Tobe-Coburn School for Fashion Careers in Manhattan with the purpose of providing fashion career-focused courses to young women; the institution still exists today. In 1960, then Senator and future President John F. Kennedy appointed Miss Tobe to the National Committee of Business and Professional Men and Women for Kennedy and Johnson.
Miss Tobe’s fashion acumen and business philosophy have been modernized for present times. As the business landscape evolves, so does Tobe, yet one thing that will always remain is our sharp focus on the consumer. This is why Tobe appeals to retailers, brands and businesses seeking to resonate, connect and engage with the consumer.
The legacy and undeniable influence of Miss Tobe and her company live on and are collectively embodied by the Tobe team today.
Doneger Creative Services is the trend and forecasting division of The Doneger Group, providing clients with in-depth fashion and trend intelligence, color and fabric direction, and up-to-the-minute retail, street and runway analysis.

Addressing the needs of retailers, manufacturers and other style-related businesses, the DCS product range comprises multimedia printed publications, timely online reporting, one-on-one client consultations and live presentations to offer a comprehensive service unmatched in the industry.

Directives West is the West Coast merchandising consulting division of The Doneger Group. They provide clients with comprehensive market analysis in all categories of business, including women's contemporary, better, junior, moderate, accessories, men's, young men's and children's, with the unique perspective and indisputable influence of West Coast fashion and lifestyle.
