Turbans are this seasons showstopping new look declares Duchess of Cambridges hatmaker

admin qqlwxu , , , , , , , , ,

Jane Taylor has made hats for the Duchess of Cambridge Turbans are not unique to Sikhs, with senior Islamic officials, Hindu priests and people in some African cultures also wearing them. Historians suggest that Guru Gobind Singh told followers to wear the head covering, also known as a dastar, as a unifying symbol of Sikh faith but also to elevate them all to a level of nobility in the eyes of God. In modern society some Sikh men do not wear a turban, arguing that it is not mandatory, while some Sikh women have started to wear them, in a break with tradition.  Jane Taylor has made hats for the Duchess of CambridgeCredit:Zak Hussein/Corbis Ms Taylor, 36,  who makes hats for the Duchess of Cambridge, Sophie Wessex, Zara Tindall, Princess Eugenie and Lady Louise Windsor, told the Sunday Telegraph: “The Turban is a completely new look this season and a real showstopper. We have created ours out of buntal (a mix of straw and silk) but you can see fabric twisted versions as well. “Easily worn to cover your ears, it’s a chic and timeless headpiece that can be worn during daytime teamed with jeans and a white top for a comfortable style, or at a special evening occasion.”Some Sikh leaders embraced the trend, suggesting that it could normalise the turban so Sikhs themselves are “stared at” less.  It is traditionally worn as a symbol of religious identity, rather than a fashion statement.But according to the Duchess of Cambridge’s hatmaker, this year’s “showstopper” trend is set to be the turban.Jane Taylor, one of the country’s leading milliners, has declared the turban a “chic and timeless headpiece” that is “a completely new look this season”.The hatmaker’s prediction comes amid growing controversy around so-called “cultural appropriation” – where one culture adopts elements of another.Earlier this year, the fashion designer Gucci attracted criticism for sending supermodels wearing turbans down the catwalk.British Sikhs, including the BBC presenter Tina Daheley, attacked the brand for turning the religious garment into a fashion accessory at a time where Sikhs are still persecuted for practicing their religion, and subjected to racist attacks. Jane Taylor has declared the turban a 'chic and timeless headpiece' The Sikh Coalition  responded to the controversy by tweeting: “The Sikh turban is a sacred article of faith, @gucci, not a mere fashion accessory. #appropriation”The Duchess gets first pick of Ms Taylor’s new styles, which she holds for some years before releasing them to the public. It is not known whether she will choose to wear a turban this year.In the Western world, turbans are most commonly worn by Sikh men, who, following the teachings of the 10th and final Sikh Guru Guru Gobind Singh, do not cut their hair.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Ashish Joshi, the spokesperson for the Sikh Media Monitoring Group, “Overall, it’s a good idea because not long ago, wearing bowler hats was common – why not have a new look!“It moves the exoticism out of head gear – which could only be a good thing. If the turban becomes less unusual, Sikhs who wear turbans will not be stared at as much.”Lord Singh, who frequently represents the Sikh community in the House of Lords, said that although he is not offended by the fashion for turbans, “it would be nice if [the wearers] stood up for the principles that wearing the turban entails. They’d be welcome to get into Sikhism.”View latest offers from New Look Jane Taylor has declared the turban a ‘chic and timeless headpiece’Credit:Danny Martindale/ WireImage

Fireside Tap and Grill owner says they are re-opening on Monday, May 18

first_img Google+ Fireside Tap and Grill owner says they are re-opening on Monday, May 18 (Photo supplied/Fireside Tap & Grill) The owner of the Fireside Tap and Grill in Edwardsburg says they are not permanently closed.Owner Jeremy Yoder has released a statement saying they are working to create a new, limited menu to take effect on its “re-opening,” this coming Monday, May 18.The confusion came about after Yoder’s decision to temporarily close the restaurant and furlough the restaurant’s wait staff.Yoder says the Fireside is staying open and working to fix supply chain problems.Below is the full statement released by the Fireside Tap and Grill:MICHIGAN, May 18, 2020 — Jeremy Yoder, owner of Fireside Tap & Grill, in Edwardsburg,MI, says not to worry – Fireside isn’t going anywhere. After a local publication, on May 14thmistakenly announced the restaurant’s permanent closure, Yoder is clearing the air. Therestaurant is working to create a new, limited menu to take effect on its “re-opening,” thiscoming Monday, May 18.The COVID-19 pandemic has forced Fireside, along with thousands of restaurants across the country, to limit their service to take-out and delivery. Indiana’s 50% dine-in restriction, Michigan’s Stay At Home Order extension, combined with a nationwide meat supply shortage is forcing Yoder to adapt business operations and supply chains.The confusion came about on Thursday, after Yoders decision to temporarily close the restaurant and furlough the restaurant’s wait staff. Media outlets quickly assumed the closure to be permanent – which was not the case – and quickly redacted. Yoder explains, “Fireside is staying open and working to fix our supply chain problems. We just need a few days to get our hands around this and rework the menu.”Rest at ease – Fireside is staying put, but it might be a little while before Yoder can put theSunday pork special back on the menu. And, as states across the country begin to reopen for dine-in service, restaurant owners, like Yoder, are facing new challenges that might prove ongoing.“There’s no question that Fireside is staying open, but we have to put things on the menuthat we can get. The meat we need is, either not available, or too expensive because oflimited supply. And, when they lift the stay at home order these problems will still be here.But, on Monday, we’re firing up the grill – like normal.”Fireside Tap & Grill, located at 69245 Maple St. in Edwardsburg, is a sports bar of ering burgers, pizza, wings, cold beer – and more.
