Louis Vuitton Launches Video Game App, Louis the Game
In true Leo fashion, this week has been all about Louis Vuitton and its founder, Louis Vuitton's 200th year bicentennial birthday.

The game follows the Maison's mascot named Vivienne around its digital world, climbing, floating and jumping to its ultimate birthday party. With the mascot fitted out in monograms and even a little Louis Vuitton back pack, the game and app is available for download for both iOS and Android with more information available on louisvuitton.com.

Bassike Now Officially Go Carbon Neutral
In ongoing efforts in fashion sustainability and responsible business practices, Australian owned and operated brand Bassike have announced they have finally officially attained Carbon Neutral Certification across its head quarters and all operational retail stores.
A big progressive step and role model for other members of the Australian fashion industry, co-founder of Bassike Mary Lou Ryan states, "It is daunting to consider that the fashion industry is responsible for 4% of global greenhouse gas emissions – equal to the combined annual emissions of France, Germany and the United Kingdom. With these startling figures in mind, we set out to first understand and measure our carbon footprint as an organisation, followed by managing and minimising our emissions intensity by improving our operations and working back with our partners to implement positive change."
