Michael Kors is a top designer, of course, but he’s also a confirmed theatre geek. He celebrated his love for the performing arts as he marked his 40th anniversary as a designer this week, with a digital show that showcased the razzle-dazzle of Broadway. “Honestly even just talking about it makes me feel joy,” he said in live comments from Times Square on Tuesday, about the experience of sitting in a Broadway theatre. Then, in a show taped several nights earlier, his models sashayed down a runway that was actually West 45th Street, in the heart of Manhattan’s still-shuttered theatre district. After the show, they gathered in the Shubert Theater itself, where they sat -- distanced -- to hear Rufus Wainwright sing a medley of uplifting hits, including “There’s No Business Like Show Business.” The runway featured a mix of supermodels from over the decades and none other than Naomi Campbell closed the show, in a sequined black gown with a black overcoat. Kors also presented an amusing prelude, “Michael Kors Lights Up Broadway,” in which portraits of Broadway actors on the walls of famed theatre hangout Sardi’s came to life, with actors emerging to wish him well and share a few jokes (the bit also recalled the ubiquity of Zoom meetings.) Among those turning out for Kors: Bette Midler, Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera, Cynthia Nixon, Sutton Foster, Ashley Park, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Ariana DeBose, Alan Cumming, Kristin Chenoweth, singer Sara Bareilles, and the current star of red-carpet fashion flamboyance, Billy Porter. When Midler’s audio seemed to be muted, Jane Krakowski quipped: “OK, we’re a year into this — how are you still muted, Bette?” Viewers were asked to support The Actors Fund, and Kors said both he and his company were making a donation to the organization, which aims to provide a safety net for performing arts and entertainment professionals. Kors sat down with The Associated Press over Zoom this week to discuss his collection, his love for Broadway, and 40 years in fashion. The interview has been edited for length and clarity. AP: Tell me about the new collection and how the pandemic has affected it. KORS: I wanted to dig deep into really what was the root of Michael Kors for 40 years. ... And then I thought also I’ve always kind of balanced this yin and yang, opulence with simplicity. So definitely those were starting points. But then designing a collection over this last year, I think the concept of what is a “special occasion” changed for all of us. Being able to eat outside, even if it was bitter, freezing cold … . even if I ran into the hardware store, that was a special occasion (laughs). I really wanted this to be focused on the idea of stepping out again … When you are able to go back into the office, you’re going to want to look great. It won’t be fuzzy slippers and yoga pants, that’s for sure. AP: You’re looking back at 40 years now. How does that feel? KORS: Honestly, when I started, I was so impatient … I thought, boom, boom, boom, let’s get this done. And now, of course, I realize that slow and steady wins the race … You keep going. But I never imagined when I started in 1981 that we would see the borders between fashion in different parts of the world totally crumble. When I started, American fashion was for America. We didn’t think about designing something that was going to work in Indonesia and in Australia and in Paris and in L.A. and Chicago and all of it. So that’s made it very exciting. AP: You’re known for fabulous in-person shows. What do you think the future of these shows is going to be? KORS: Live performance and live theatre is such a big part of my life and a big inspiration for me … We miss that sense of community. So when we see a great piece of theatre streamed in our homes, well, I’m happy to see it, but it’s not the same as seeing it live. And I think fashion shows is the same thing. Do we lose the sense of community of experiencing something with other people? Yes, that’s tremendous. At the same time, I think perhaps we’re going to see things become a little bit more intimate when they do return to a live scenario. AP: What do you think when you look back to the ‘80s and ’90s? KORS: When I look at myself in the early ’80s, I kind of am amazed that adults actually listened to me because I’m like, “Oh, my gosh, I’m a boy.” I’m literally a boy. I don’t even know if I was shaving when I started my business. So it’s amazing to me that adult customers and stores and members of the press were actually willing to give me space and time and listen to me. I think the ‘90s were the decade of cool. And I think that fashion started to get so international. So I started travelling more. I think I spread my wings in the ’90s and I really grew up. AP: What do you want your mark to be on fashion? KORS: What’s interesting for me, after 40 years, (is) the fashion show is certainly exciting, but it’s the street which really invigorates me, and seeing people wear my designs of all ages. We have customers who are 15 and customers who are 85. And in every part of the world. What I want everyone to get from Michael Kors is that somehow we were a confidence builder, that when you wore something from Michael Kors you kind of felt your best self, and somehow there was always this sort of yin and yang that what I do is useful, comfortable, versatile, long-lasting, but at the same time makes you feel special. —- Associated Press writer Jocelyn Noveck contributed to this report.

Andalusia Fountain Go With The Flow with Garden Fountains Special Offerings PENNSBURG, Pa., April 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- If you’re looking for the ideal fountain to grace your garden, then you will be spoilt for choice with the extensive collection offered by Garden Fountains. They have a fascinating array of outdoor décor and garden fountains that will transform the look and feel of any garden, backyard, or patio. At Garden Fountains and Outdoor Décor, in Pennsburg, PA, they’ll help you flow through everything you need to know about outdoor fountains to choose the type, size, style, and location to turn your space into the oasis of your dreams. There are many advantages to having a delightful water fountain as it will not only dramatically alter the landscape, but the gentle sight and sound of continuously flowing water will create instant calm, reducing anxiety and stress. Their fountains will also help muffle noise from outside suburbia, such as construction projects, lawn maintenance, traffic sounds, and family gatherings. The tranquil, moving water of the fountain will drown out the cacophony. Fountains also act as watering holes for furred and feathered friends, so why not sit back and enjoy the antics of birds, squirrels, deer, and other wild creatures. Such outside décor also acts as a natural repellent – the fountain’s running water will help keep mosquitoes away, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors with an eco-friendly alternative to sticky, smelly pest control measures. At Garden Fountains & Outdoor Décor, you won’t have any problem finding a fountain that fits your landscape, budget and taste. If anything, the challenge is in choosing from their vast inventory of gorgeous products. Under 24 inches high, a small outdoor fountain serves as an ideal addition to a tiny garden, patio table, or balcony space. With a medium-sized fountain, you’ll have an ideal addition to any garden, veranda, or small yard, so at 24-36 inches high, these products act as a compliment rather than a central décor element. If you have more space to work with, why not choose a large garden fountain? These works of art are 36-60 inches high, providing a significant style upgrade to your outdoor wall, yard, flower garden, or pool surroundings. At over 60 inches high, an extra-large outdoor water fountain makes an eye-catching focal point for any area with plenty of room. These magnificent masterpieces stand out on an expansive lawn or generous garden space. The company offers everything from classical design to modern aesthetic, from a small tabletop sculpture to a sizable landscaping centerpiece, and fountains that are traditional birdbaths, wall fountains, and freestanding pieces in a variety of shapes and sizes.

The financial hit of the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed efforts by central banks in a range of countries to unify parallel exchange rates, leaving states such as Lebanon and Iran with currency black markets that cause more economic damage, a study found. Twenty-two countries now have more than one exchange rate, the Institute of International Finance (IIF) found in a report. "An official exchange rate significantly stronger than a market-clearing rate will discourage FDI (foreign direct investment), reduce the interbank FX market, encourage rent-seeking, and impede business development," said Garbis Iradian, IIF chief economist for the Middle East, North Africa, Caucasus and Central Asia.

Sacramento, California, April 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scientists weren't heralded and respected until the world experienced the covid-19 pandemic. Now entrepreneurs like Mohammed Ali Rashid are receiving the respect he deserves outside of the finance and science industry as other immigrant entrepreneurs are starting to take notice. Extraction practices are changing for the better, thanks to the initiative of ENTEXS CEO Mohammed Ali Rashid. The booming industry has been having a few growing pains, mostly due to poor consistency factors where the product is concerned, and Ali Rashid has found what appears to be the optimal solution. Calculated, aggressive automation. That’s not all that ENTEXS is bringing to the market, however, as Ali Rashid has been busy implementing service standards in order to help improve things for the industry overall. Coming Changes Mohammed Ali Rashid believes that hands-free technology is key to giving industry standards an overhaul, and so far, in practice, it appears that he is very much on to something. His company, ENTEXS, provides high-end technology designed to assist in the manufacture of health products… but how does it work? To start with, by incorporating a closed-loop system that utilizes sensors, the entire extraction process may be monitored closely from beginning to end. As these are machines, this also means that fewer operators are required. ENTEXS’ machines are programmable as well, though their software is also capable of rewriting its own protocols. The results are quite impressive. Operating costs are reduced, the product has less chance of contamination due to the automated process, the yields are consistently higher, and the quality of the product is at a consistent level that humans alone simply could not provide. Ali Rashid Says “It’s on the Cloud” The scale of automation and current technology means that you can incorporate ENTEXS machines and extraction processes into the cloud. As the industry is relatively new, suppliers are scattered, and ensuring consistency of product is a very real concern. By taking things to the next level with the Cloud, the extraction process may be monitored for all locations utilizing ENTEXS. Rashid’s innovations are helping to bring uniformity to the process to the benefit of companies and consumers alike. Making Sense of the Standards As you can guess, ENTEXS is becoming quite in demand, and it’s understandable. Companies that opt to stand under the ENTEXS umbrella receive services such as site reviews, full installation of their machinery, field verification, permitting, and operational assistance until they are fully operational and ready to go. While the technology is still very much in its infancy, it’s hard to argue with the results. The systems and modules which ENTEXS provides are essentially built from the ground up and customized to work together in order to fill a client’s requirements. These can be strict; for example, in Florida, the standards are much the same as you would find in the food industry, and there is little room for error. This means that the product, the machines, and location must meet specific standards, and numerous permits are required. ENTEXS not only provides the tech but helps to ensure that all of their clients are up to code. They are also swift to dispatch help if their personalized systems encounter any issues. It’s a new standard of high-end tech married to old-world customer service, and it will be exciting to see the waves that it makes in the industry. Mohammed Ali Rashid and ENTEXS are certainly set to make waves, but is this the wave of the future? Well… Let’s just say that it’s hard to argue with Ali Rashid’s results. CONTACT: email@example.com
