    Do Kim Jong Un’s daughter’s CLOTHES show she is being groomed to one day rule North Korea? Kim Ju Ae and her father’s matching outfits symbolise their closeness

    Once an elusive figure, the daughter of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has become a reliable mainstay at her father’s side in state-orchestrated photoshoots in recent months. Kim Ju Ae, who is expected to eventually take over from her father, was snapped on Thursday in a sharp leather trench coat with a furry lapel – an outfit that could have almost been borrowed from her father’s noir-inspired wardrobe. Followed by a military procession in Pyongyang to mark the 76th founding anniversary of the army, the pair stood out against a sea of olive in matching dark longcoats, black shoes and black trousers.

    As Bloomberg reported in May, New York, California, Sweden, and the Netherlands are developing legislation similar to Chile’s extended producer responsibility law that went into effect this year, mandating that the fashion industry fund recycling programs via tariffs calibrated to the quantity of garments produced. In order to help New York City uphold its existing law limiting or forbidding textiles in the waste stream, FabScrap, a nonprofit founded in 2016 by a former New York Department of Sanitation worker, receives 7,000 pounds of preconsumer textile waste each week.
