Blast From the Past... Remembering Biba... Jeremy Scott Hits London

Talbots recruits “Wonder Woman” star Lynda Carter to headline its Sept. 10 Fashion’s Night Out event at the company’s flagship.

BY GEORGE: Actress Melissa George (“In Treatment,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) is venturing into the fashion business via a new product called HemmingMyWay, which she developed with her business partner, writer Kara Harshbarger. Available online now (and in retail stores soon), the clear adhesive strips sporting plastic snaps affix to hems on jeans and trousers, allowing women to adjust pants length depending on what type of shoe they are wearing. Priced at $20 for a set of four, good for use on one pair of pants for up to eight washes, the device will eradicate safety pins, hemming tape and alterations. “It’s a quick fix that allows you to go from flats to heels and day to night,” said George, who has another fashion device in the works. “We’ve tested it ourselves over 14 months of development.”
