Florence Welch of popular band Florence + The Machine may soon add ‘designer’ to her list of accomplishments. The stylish singer has plans to team with Topshop for a line that, according to a Daily Mail source, will “reflect her eclectic, quirky style.” We can’t wait! [DailyMail]

Who said you have to don last year’s party dress to your BFF’s summer soiree. Elle magazine’s fashion blog reported that Rent the Runway, a website that allows women to rent designer dresses at a fraction of their retail price, just added several hot designers to its growing inventory. Anna Sui, Erin Fetherston, Cynthia Rowley, and Thakoon are four of the biggest names the popular site now carries.

So, what can we expect from these exciting new additions? According to Elle, we’re in store for some serious eye candy in the form of “brilliant prints, bright colors and feminine silhouettes.”

P.S.: Each new designer featured on the site has given RTR 20 signed sketches to hand out to the first 20 lucky ladies who swipe that credit card. In addition, one renter will get to add a Thakoon dress to her wardrobe –permanently. [Elle]

Summer camp can drudge up a few bad childhood memories of hard bunk beds and bulging
mosquito bites. But for 50 fashion-forward New York girls, camp involves designing a fashion line, learning how to create blogs, visiting high end retail stores, and receiving a few tips from top stylists and editors. Fashion Camp NYC, does, however, come with a hefty price tag. Parents pay $1,295 for the program alone, which does not include meals and boarding. [NYTimes]
