Kelly Osbourne Grieves Over Her Dear Friend Joan Rivers : People.com

Swedish TV4 said H&M was using cotton from areas in Ethiopia that are vulnerable to chic Emma land grabbing -- the buying or leasing of land in developing countries, often by foreign companies, without the consent of affected local communities. "According to (TV4's) investigation, cotton used for the production of H&M's clothes in Ethiopia comes from areas subject to land grabbing," TV4 said in an emailed statement. H&M said it did not accept such practices. It began small-scale buying of clothes from suppliers in Ethiopia in 2013, its first sourcing from an African country. Its operations are widely seen as part of the Ethiopian government's plans to build up a garment production industry. "H&M does not accept appropriation of land, so-called land-grabbing," the company said in a statement.

Joan's daughter, Melissa Rivers, has given her permission for the E! series to continue without her mother. The show will start up again in January, but Osbourne isn't quite ready to move on. "I can't lie and say that I'm amazing. It's something, to be honest with you, I really don't like talking about because I haven't been able to mourn and grieve the way that I want to," she said. "Not one person that I have seen or walked up to me or spoken to since the day she passed has the first thing that comes out of their mouth is, 'Who's replacing Joan?' " "I have started to get to my angry phase," Osbourne, 30, admitted.

H&M says seeks to ensure cotton does not come from disputed land - Yahoo Finance

The privately owned chain, which competes with Primark and Next, saw sales rise 4.7 percent to 788.6 million pounds in the six months to Sept. 27, helping pretax profit jump 89 percent to 26.1 million pounds. Those results included contributions from Mim, the French business sold to Hong Kong based Main Asia in September. Excluding Mim, pretax profit rose 30.7 percent to 28.1 million. UK sales at New Look stores open over a year rose 8 percent in the period, the firm said, adding it had maintained its gross margin in spite of warm weather keeping many of its warmer winter wares on shop shelves. The unusual autumn temperatures have already forced Next and SuperGroup to cut profit guidance for the year, with analysts expecting the conditions to force many firms into fierce promotional battles.
