Ever wondered what it takes to make it in the fashion industry? On Oct. 19-21, 525 young women will gather at the Hudson Theater in New York City to hear from top designers, editors and entrepreneurs. These fashionistas, who aspire to work in the fashion industry themselves one day, will take part in the annual three-day Teen Vogue Fashion University for some "Fashion 101" classes. If you can't make it to NYC for the event, don't sweat it. Teen Vogue is offering a webinar of the sold-out event online.

A self-indulgent pilgrimage to the shrine of '70s fabulousness, "Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston" assembles a fine assortment of archival material but falls far short of its stated goal. Halston, who died in 1990, is a compelling subject - a Midwesterner who became synonymous with Manhattan night life while changing the fashion industry - and his story helps to define an era. That story is trivialized in this glitter-deep overview of familiar Studio 54 terrain. The film combines two documentary subgenres: the fashion doc and the inquisitive-filmmaker-inserted-in-every-scene doc. The spotlight-hogging director is star-struck first-timer Whitney Sudler-Smith.

When Sylvia Lozano began charging a few dollars for haircuts out of her living room nine years ago, she had high hopes and little money. A longtime resident of Mexico, Lozano came to California thinking of the state as a place where a woman could succeed in the male-dominated world of business. "In Mexico at that time, men didn't respect a woman with ambitions," said Lozano, 46, the mother of five, who was born in the United States but raised in Guadalajara.

Flavour Gallery , the maker of T-shirts aimed at chefs and foodies, has a new fall line featuring designs by Andrew Zimmern, Chris Cosentino and other notable chefs. “The Other White Meat” T-shirt with the head of a hoary goat, pictured above, was designed by Zimmern (host of the Travel Channe l 's “Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern"). The new line is due to release in early November. Flavour Gallery owners Alfredo and Erin Malatesta launched the brand in 2011, aiming to “unite and identify fellow culinary enthusiasts” - you know, the way Joseph Gordon Levitt's Joy Division T-shirt in “500 Days of Summer” banded together nostalgic 80s-era fans of late-70s post-punk, or something like that.

Two main events in the same week, on opposite coasts, proved that party plumage in Los Angeles and New York looks much the same these days. Just about every big name in Manhattan's fashion industry attended the gala of the Council of Fashion Designers of America at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The dominant style was glittery but understated, with many guests--including TV's Barbara Walters and designer Donna Karan--opting for ornately embroidered jackets over long, simple dresses.

How fun to read about little Hollywood scandals in the first person ["The 'Sabrina' Mystery," Oct. 24]. I hope you'll have further excerpts from Mr. Dorleac's forthcoming book, or maybe a column about costume design. Deborah Neikirk Hollywood Hills Limited sizes, limited customers Your article ["Kept Out of the Club," Oct. 24] made me angry. Since when is a 10 considered obese? The average woman wears a 10/12. The fashion industry needs to get it. If a store only has smaller sizes they are losing a lot of business.
