Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 24, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

UK opposition parties suggest Dec. 9 vote in Brexit gambit

Jan 24, 2020

LONDON — Two British opposition parties on Sunday proposed an even earlier election date than Prime Minister Boris Johnson has offered, trying to force his government to delay a final decision on its European Union divorce deal. The chess move by the Liberal Democrats and Scottish National Party reflects the volatile political landscape now in Britain. The ruling Conservatives desperately want a new election to bolster their numbers in Parliament, but they face resistance from the main opposition Labour Party, which fears the country will be unwittingly tricked into crashing out of the European Union without a deal.

UK's Johnson asks for Brexit delay, but argues against it

Jan 24, 2020

LONDON — Prime Minister Boris Johnson grudgingly asked the European Union late Saturday to delay Brexit after the British Parliament postponed a decision on whether to back his divorce deal. But the defiant Johnson also made clear that he personally opposed delaying the U.K.'s exit, scheduled for Oct. 31.

An hour before the deadline, European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted: "The extension request has...

The Latest: Irish minister: No proposal from the UK yet

Jan 24, 2020

LONDON — The Latest on Britain's plans to leave the European Union (all times local): 2:05 p.m. Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney says EU negotiators "simply haven't seen yet" a British proposal that could form the basis for negotiations to break the deadlock in the stalled Brexit process. Conveney said after meeting with EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier that "the two sides are quite a long way apart," while the clock is ticking inexorably toward the planned Oct. 31 departure date.
