It's another week here at Pop Fashion! In hot topics - Tavi Gevinson is Broadway bound, Lord & Taylor got in hot water over vintage accessories, and the difficulties of personal branding in the WNBA. Also, a fashion photoshoot is causing major controversy in India and American Apparel isn't exactly turning over a new leaf. Our major topic this week - when good ideas go bad.
