Armani Designer Fashion Will Become Fur-Free


The Armani clothing brand has decided to no longer use fur in its clothing collections. Beginning with their fall 2016 collection, fur will no longer be on display. The company plans to use synthetic alternatives to fur in its designs.

Armani is the latest designer to give up fur as a fabric. Other designers have also chosen to avoid fur use. Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger have previously decided to stop using real fur in their products. Stella McCartney is a designer who has always used alternatives to fur in her clothing lines. She also avoids using leather, feathers or other animal products.

It was previously believed that fur represented luxury. In reality, real fur can be very inexpensive to acquire. Some high-quality fake fur alternatives can cost more than the real thing. Advancements in the production of synthetic fur have made using it preferable to using animal-derived fur. The best faux furs are realistic enough to be indistinguishable from real fur.

Giorgio Armani switched to faux fur after an agreement with the Fur Free Alliance and the U.S. Humane Society. The Fur Free Alliance is a collection of 40 animal welfare agencies from around the world. Their members come from 28 countries. The Fur Free Alliance chairman Joh Vinding said Armani’s announcement “makes it clear that designers and consumers can have creative freedom and luxury, all without supporting animal cruelty.”

Parisian Style Inspirations

Casual chicness to the dream. How do French women pull it off? Their street style comes from well-edited wardrobes that are put together casually yet how so smartly. The first tip to take to heart – don’t give in to trends. Aim for style. Who What Wear picks their favorite inspirationistas below.

Okay, it’s not a word yet. But trust us, inspirationistas will catch on. Clémence Poésy is a French model and actress, and our personal fashion icon. Poésy’s Chloe advertisement is our style dream: flowing blonde locks in a bohemian dress while running in a field.

Once you nail down the perfect French day old washed hair, you can build her look by pairing opposites. For instance, wear a Coco Chanel inspired boucle jacket with feminine touches with refined menswear footwear. The key to pull-off this look is keep everything tailored and sharp looking. Footwear should be clean and narrow and worn with stocking like short socks so your ankle shows. Use a J. Crew ankle cuff and roll up your pants just a touch. Tailored black trousers should sit low enough to be discernable from menswear and cut to showcase your hips, not hide them. Pleats are not acceptable in slacks. Flatter your silhouette.

The first runner-up as our fashion icon is Geraldine Saglio, stylist and fashion editor for Vogue Paris. The epitome of casual cool, Saglio is a go-to source for how to refine your jeans outfit with styling. Cuff your skinny jeans a half inch with one flip and pair with simple black kitten heels. The look becomes refined by using a thin black leather belt to cinch a wool trench coat. Also, cuff your trench the same as your jeans. If your belt is long, loop it through its own waistband.

Billionaire George Soros is back to funding political activities gain. Soros together with other liberal billionaires has bankrolled $15 million donations which are set to help the Democratic Party in its 2016 election campaign according to NY Times. The money is meant to mobilize the Latinos and other immigrants living in the United States into voting the party come November this year. George Soros have been funding Democratic political activities for a long time now. In the year 2004, he led a $200 million advertisement project which opted to remove George Bush from power. The project however failed and Democratic Party’s John Kerry LOST TO George Bush. George is an immigrant from Hungary who came to the United States after failing to stand the Nazi activities. He has therefore been spearheading and funding many Latino and immigrant organizations and education programs.
The fifteen million US dollars that George Soros and other liberal sponsors have donated will be used to mobilize Latinos. This will be done by targeting the states that have big Latino and immigrant numbers. These are Nevada, Florida, and Colorado. The project is meant to take advantage of Donald Trump’s rhetoric against the immigrants. The Republicans have vowed to make things hard for all the immigrants living in the country. The donation is, therefore, going to aid the Democrats in seeking a large voter turnout, not only from the already Democratic supporting Latinos but to garner new support and raise the party’s total tally. This campaign aims at getting more than 400,000 new Democrat supporters t take their support to the ballot in November.
This year, Soros has made donations and political funding that is almost $13 million in total. This is by putting on the record all the political findings which encompass senatorial and gubernatorial funding. Soros and the liberal donors are making the move to mobilize the Latinos amid issues by the immigrants and other Latinos who think that the Democratic leadership under Obama did not grant the immigrants the rights that had been promised during the campaigning. There is also a big tug between the interparty politics whereby supporters of Clinton and Sanders fail to understand the need to unite under the party.
Bernie Sanders is among the donors who have aided the Democratic campaigns. He is part of the Super PACs funding and apart from his candidature in the party, he has been able to work on getting more donations to help in the party’s activities. Trump and his Republican counterparts are still more confirmations that would not do anything to tolerate immigrants in the US. Soros is further struck by Trump’s remarks that he would ban Muslim refugees seeking asylum in the country. This and another rhetoric is what has prompted George Soros into making the funding.

China To Impose Value-Added Tax On Financial Sector

For the first time ever, a six percent value-added tax will supplant a five percent business tax in China, in an effort to lower the tax burden. In a report to the current parliament, Premier Li Keqiang remarked, “Business tax will be replaced with value-added tax in all sectors.”

China will unleash an aggressive value-added tax which will embrace the financial sector. The deductions for the value-added tax will be for stationary property which will guarantee all tax burden is reduced nationwide.

The value-added tax will be May 1, 2016, Lachlan Wolfers, KPMG China director of indirect taxes commented, “This is a significant and positive development as China will have one of the most progressive VAT systems in the world.”

Interest from consumer and business loans will be subjected to the value-added tax, as China becomes the one of the first countries initiating widespread taxation on the financial sector. The Chinese government believes their initiative will succeed, despite the fact there is no precedence. Years of theory and research by the European Union was unable to show a workable model for financial sector value-added taxes.

“To the best of our knowledge, there are only one or two relatively small economies in the world that have even tried this,” according to Lachlan Wolfers. Lancers believes after witnessing the success China will have with its financial sector value-added tax, the world will hail China and follow suit.

China admits there will be issues for businesses during the value-added tax transition. It assures its citizens and businesses that the value-added tax will offer a more streamlined, contemporary system. Tax collections will improve and will make tax evasion more difficult. China has already implemented value-added taxes on other sectors towards overhauling the taxation system.

A value-added tax system taxes the difference between the sale price charged to a customer, minus the cost of materials and other taxable inputs, and is collected at the point of sale, making it theoretically easier to collect than individual and corporate taxes in places where tax avoidance is commonplace, as in China.

George Soros Predicts Crisis in Present International Markets Similar to 2008 Financial Crisis

The international markets in mid-January 2016 received a hard blow when stocks plunged in the top two World’s largest economies, United States and China. Nine days before the economic downturn, Bloomberg Business reported news that George Soros predicts the global markets are headed towards a crisis. He warned investors in Sri Lanka at an economic forum to be careful in such unstable markets. Soros makes his economic forecasts based on three important factors: China’s decreased value of currency; China inability to develop an effective new growth model; and challenged positive interest rates. George Soros has analyzed the trends of the economy globally and managed investments for nearly 50 years.

The decreased value of yuan in China has an influence on international currency over the world, as well as stock and the commodity market. Soros believes there are challenges with positive interest rates internationally because the present economic situation is similar to 2008. He questions the stability of the economy in China, for the country is focusing on consumption and services, rather than investment and manufacturing. In January of this year, the value of global equities decreased by approximately $2.5 trillion. Equities have suffered in Asia as equity trading stopped in China.

George Soros said when he observes the current financial markets, there is a severe challenge similar to the 2008 crisis. Is it possible that China may face similar financial crisis as the United States in 2008? The U.S. financial crisis resulted in a 31.8 percent decrease in housing prices and an increase in the unemployment rate two years after the crisis. According to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Report issued by the U.S. Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission on January 2011, one of the main reasons for the 2008 financial crisis is negligence on behalf of the Finance Captains & Public Stewards of U.S. Financial System to inquire, recognize, and manage the risks within the system. Other reasons included the lack of mortgage lending standards; failure of financial institutions to examine mortgage securities; corporate governance failures; and extreme borrowing.

Soros raised strong points about the international market concerning the economy in China. The second largest economy today is still weak due to the cut in interest rates, losses in equities, and sluggish manufacturing industry. George Soros is the Founder and Chairman of hedge fund firm, Soros Fund Management, LLC. The firm was founded in 1970 and has a net worth of over $27 billion, according to Bloomberg Billionaires Index. In 1979, George founded the Open Society Foundations. He provided scholarships to black students at the University of Cape Town in South Africa and revolutionists of Eastern Europe.
