Fellow Fashion Lovers, What an exciting month around the fashion globe! Fashion Weeks are revealing the newest of designer’s F/W 2014 collections as the cream rises to the top, and the best of the fashion elite release their creativity and vision to those who eagerly await the pure aesthetic of designers like that of Dubaibased designer, Furne Amato. This month we feature the FURNE ONE collection directly from backstage and front row of New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, thanks to our Fashion FacesTV NY correspondant, Wade Lee. 40’s inspired beadwork and silouettes in gray offer a muted winter tone that speed the heart and drop the jaw! So much inspiration, we will continue to share more of the event in the next issue! Also, we are pleased to share this Spring with diverse and lovely actress, Lauren Holly. Sharing more about her dynamic roles and personal life, FF staff interviews the currently residing Canadian as we discuss her role as Dr. Betty Rogers in MOTIVE. I can recall her memorable role as ‘Mary Swanson’ in the comedy film, Dumb and Dumber. We can say with certainty she is smart, caring, creative and always on the move! Enjoy this editorial, as photographed by BABAK, capturing Lauren’s warm and personable smile. Additionally, our hats off to Brande Wilkerson, Fashion Faces’ Creative Marketing-Web Editor, on the very intimate editorial based on her personal fight and lingering hope from breast cancer. We are so proud of her diligence and positivity. She has been coping with grace and offering even more of herself than ever; reminding us that every day is another opportunity for self expression in our relationships, art and productivity. Be inspired by her two shoots, aptly named, “The Choice” and “Shredded.” Should you know someone or even be one suffering from such a disease, please reach out and keep your hope and faith alive by interacting and associating with those who will celebrate your individuality, strengths and life. As always, keep creating and expressing your SELF. Hold on and keep fighting. There is only ONE you. Affectionately, Jenna Belt photo - emily gualdoni http://egualdoniphotography.com

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA MARKETPLACE

PERSONAL BRANDING http://sharingourfieldsofdreams.com tw: @angelheide

Angel Hargreaves

T

he idea of marketing yourself is not new. Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump, Orville Redenbacher and Tyra Banks

all have names that represent their products, services, company or experience. In fact, everyone recognizes these brands by their owner’s personal branding. The more you are out in front of and interacting with the potential client or customer, the more you are judged by building their loyalty and trust. There are two ways in which to personally brand your self and business. One way you recognize the organization is by the person themselves. For example, Tony Robbins is an individual who has a business and a mission that has his name and image in the front and center of every marketing tool. The other is a model that does not link the person’s name to their organization; with this, it leaves room for future ownership change. However, the business is connected to the personality of the branding. An example: a model representing Calvin Klein. Here are ways “How to” personally brand yourself:

YOUR IMAGE

- Include a personal professional headshot. This sets the foundation of a trusting relationship

with potential clients, customers or agents.

YOUR LOGO

- By definition, a logo is a design used by an organization on its letterhead, advertising material,

and signs as an emblem by which the organization can easily be recognized. This helps people to know who you are.

YOUR BLOG

- This captures your personality, humor or who you are to connect with the agent, client or potential

customers. The often-updated information creates a following and content is shared. It would be wise to have grammar checked and to include a number of links to involve the reader interactively.

YOUR WEBSITE

- Choosing the most descriptive name for the domain will make it easier for those to search

or remember your online identity. Generally the landing page will feature your logo or personal image, video or podcast, links to social media accounts, slogan, product, shopping cart, bio and contact information. Having a website is like a mini business card with more information about you and your business offering people an oversight about your location, products/services and social media links.

08

#FFAPR14 | fashionfacesmag.com


YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA

- Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus and LinkedIn are all great sources to reach

potential clients and let your personality stand out. Sharing written articles on recommendations for a product or networking businesses can help to build authority within your industry and community. Encourage your people to voice out their opinion and respond to them publicly showing the type of personal service they can expect. Interact often with customers, potential clients or agents, ensuring the essence of your personal brand.

YOUR VIDEOS AND PODCASTS

- It is very easy and inexpensive to create your own short video blog post

and podcast; speaking about your advice or opinions, or interviewing other customers or experts. Video has been proven to be the best source of Internet media. Your Authorship: Writing a book or writing articles through a traditional publisher or self-publishing is another great way to establish publicity or creditability. You can produce it yourself or hire a ghostwriter. Having a book can be a personal outlet to express your opinions, advice and experiences; therefore gaining a genuine following.

YOUR BUSINESS CARDS

- Having a small headshot helps the potential client remember who you are when they

look back at the card. Some forget names and faces of those they have networked with unless they have the visual association. Include your branding, name, position/title, slogan/tagline, phone number, email address and website on your business card.

YOUR PERSONAL BRANDING SLOGAN

- Create a short, catchy phrase that distinctively represents and

promotes your overall efforts and helps identify your services. For example the company “Nike…Just do it.” Another example is my book called, “Statements of Power” Change Your Statements, Your Life & World Changes” or an renown speaker Angel Heide “Human Potential Mentor.”

YOUR DAY-TO-DAY OPERATIONS

- Your personal branding should be focused on what you share with the world.

However, how you conduct your business and yourself on a daily basis is very important by the way you dress, speak to your network and the quality of your work are the most powerful ways for you to communicate what is special and unique about you and your organization. To express your personal branding:

BE REAL

- Being real is your authentic friendly quality and is the most effective marketing. No being slick will do.

BE VULNERABLE

- It is okay to tell stories of your failures in both business and personal life, of where you are now

and admitting being overwhelmed by a challenge in your business or life. This will aid in gaining trust and connection between you and others as a genuine human being.

BE TRANSPARENT

- Show true stories of client testimonials, case studies and/or statistics from the many people

you have helped. It is a more powerful influence than impressive credentials.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THE MARCELA MAKEOVER

I ’m launching my very own skin product line called FoM™ soon. It’s about clean, light, high quality products that I have designed to enhance the look and style of both men and women equally. The name FoM comes from a blend of the words femme and homme. I love the imagery of sea foam — clean, refreshing and natural! We live in a new era. Old gender roles and rules are confining and out-of-date. I decided to design the FoM products as I began to see  an exciting new feeling of individualism and self-expression developing in my clients and the people I meet everyday. People want to have selfdetermination in all aspects of their lives more than ever. I believe that is reflected in their choice of lifestyle products too. FoM™ expresses that ideal. We believe we are creating more than a product. We intend to be a lifestyle brand. We like to say, “Ästhetiks are Evolving. Are You?”™ I’m excited about the evolution of FoM™! We haven’t launched yet, but those who are interested can sign up to receive email updates about  the FoM line at: http://bymarcela.com

BEE VENOM: A Buzzing New Trend

#FFAPR14 | fashionfacesmag.com


anuka Doctor, an innovative skincare therapy company with headquarters in Auckland, New Zealand, is using the potency of bee venom to produce safe, natural, and functional skin treatments. Products are composed of patented Purified Bee Venom and New Zealand Manuka Honey, which combine to create moisturizers, facemasks, serums, and cleansers that effectively combat acne and aging. The Purified Bee Venom used by Manuka Doctor is raw bee venom that has been purified in a sustainable and bee friendly way. During the purification process any and all impurities are removed from the venom, which in turn creates more potent venom. This purification furthermore “makes the active components highly concentrated,” which means that less venom is needed to achieve visible results. Manuka Doctor describes their products as “naturally inspired, scientifically enhanced,” which indicates that they use scientific research to better the preexisting qualities of natural ingredients. JWT Global Trend Analysts has named bee venom the “number one beauty trend of 2013.” It is evident that bee venom boasts properties beneficial to the general wellness of the skin, as bee venom products are used by celebrities like Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, and Scarlett Johansson to obtain flawless skin. Manuka Doctor products are divided into three primary lines: ApiNourish, ApiClear, and ApiRevive. ApiNourish, which claims to “protect & moisturize the skin,” relies on the skin regenerating qualities of bee venom and the moisturizing qualities of Manuka honey. ApiClear relies on the antibacterial properties of Purified Bee Venom, and advertises, “balance for troubled skin.” The ApiClear line is geared toward those looking for a solution to acne. ApiRevive boasts “restorative natural products.” Each product is created to serve a specific skin problem, whether it be dry skin, blemishes, or excess oil. Best sellers include Foaming Facial Cleanser, Skin Serum, and Facial Moisturizing Lotion from Manuka Doctor’s ApiClear line, and Rejuvenating Face Mask and Rejuvenating Skin Cream from Manuka Doctor’s ApiNourish line. Manuka Doctor products only recently became available in the United States, and can be purchased online. http://manukadoctor.co.uk

FF

- The irony of your early role in “All

My Children” bears the elaboration on your current role as adoptive mother of “The Three Kings.” Kindly share a bit about the devotion and commitment to your children.

LH -  It is simple, they are everything to me. Each of them is so different, my most important job is to foster their individuality. I was ready for kids in that I was ready to be unselfish. The biggest surprise is that I’m realizing that we are also going to be great friends. FF   -  As a spokesperson for Susan Lucci’s “Youthful Essence” infomercial, how have you applied this and other beauty knowledge to your daily regimen? What are some of your preferred cosmetic and skincare products and services?

LH -  I don’t have a lot of time for pampering,

so I’m all about preventative stuff. I try to be healthy, because I think beauty comes from within. I became such a big fan of a line of health products that I got involved in the business. LaurenHolly.vemma.com. Check it out. My CRAZE at the moment is ‘Renew.’ Incredibly tasty, and so good for my hair, skin, and nails. We use ALL the products in my

house, and now all my friends do too!

FF

- How did you develop the internal ability to play such diverse roles as Dr. Betty Rogers, Bruce Lee’s wife, Mary Swanson, Ethel Kennedy and others? What sensory, emotional or psychological faculty allows you to tap into performing these characters best?

LH - Not sure. Be good if I could bottle it! I think I’m back to my imagination…LOL.

FF -  May I say, “Thank you for the laughs” in your memorable and entertaining role in Dumb and Dumber (a personal favorite!). Can you highlight a special recollection from the production of this iconic film? #highfive

LH

- It was as much fun making it. So many laughs. We filmed over two long weekends- Memorial Day and July 4th. Both times a huge group of cast and crew rented houseboats on Lake Powell. Swimming, BarBQ, star-gazing, and tons more laughs. #goodtimes

FF

-  Of your many landed auditions, which favored character were you most proud to portray? #proudestmoment

LH

- Maybe the most memorable was

for a CBS series called ‘The Antagonists.’ It was for the lead, and it was my first time to audition for an auditorium of network executives. I was so scared, and so unbelievably excited when I got it. It was the beginning of so much...

- You once stated in an interview, “…No one is born a supermodel.

Practice your posing and facial expressions until you can nail each shot effortlessly.” What was something that took a lot of practice starting out as a model that you can now do effortlessly?

JC

- EVERYTHING took a lot of practice when I was first starting. I didn’t know how to pose or what to do

with my face, and it showed in my pictures. Looking a little closer at the models’ expressions and how their

bodies moved in the magazines I read, I practiced different looks in the mirror. Granted I looked like a dork, but it helped as I memorized the angles my face looked best. I watched videos of models on YouTube. Eventually I could take a headshot with perfection. It took me forever to learn how to pose with my body so that I looked long and lean. After practicing and shooting for about a year, I felt like I could do everything in my sleep. model - juelles chester http://juelleschester.com

lot of TLC. I wear sunscreen anytime I go outside, and put on a light coat of body oil on as soon as I get

out of the shower to lock the moisture in. Otherwise, I pay for it all day with tight, itchy skin. At night I use a cleansing oil to wash my face and slap on some argan oil while its still wet to keep it soft overnight.

you initially turned on to it and by whom?

a year since I was 16, and people still ask me if I’m in high school! My dad had serious skin cancer as a young man so I was a freak about applying it everyday, even during the winter months. As a bonus, I still look relatively young and therefore more marketable as a model. I like Neutrogena Age Shield Face SPF 100+ because it doesn’t make my skin oily.

FF

- What does modeling do for you (mentally, spiritually,

physically, etc.) that makes you want to keep achieving more in that industry?

JC

- Modeling is a way for me to get creative. I’ve met a lot of cool

people and close friends from some of the work I’ve done. That’s the best part. In real life I’m quiet, and working with others helps me open up and not be such a dork all the time. I like getting crazy with all the clothes and makeup and having the opportunity to travel.

FF

- Is there anything else you would prefer to share

about yourself and your professional experiences?

JC

- If you’re starting out as a model, have fun with it.

Keep your wits about you. Keep your clothes on for the first year. Shoot with everyone you can. Ask other people who they liked working with. Ask for references when you’re shooting with a stranger for the first time. Reach out to photographers and models that you love. Realize that the modeling industry is small and that everything you do and say will be repeated and discussed. Keep the diva behavior at home. Learn how to do your own basic makeup and hair. The fashion and modeling industry is not particularly glamorous: the physical standards are grueling and at times you are only a disposable product. Someone is always going to be taller and prettier. Surrounding yourself with friends and normal people is crucial to your sanity. Keep your mind and body strong and keep smiling. Work hard and stay humble!

Art is personal as it should be...

Art, photography and fashion design are all forms of personal expression. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So naturally it was the 1st thing I turned to when expressing my emotions after being diagnosed with Breast Cancer at age 39.

The Choice


R ight around Christmas 2013,

I had followed up with a doctor’s ordered mammogram after feeling some pin prick pains in my breast that just didn’t seem right. As women, I believe our bodies tell us when something’s not right and we MUST listen! Well, my mammo came back positive and they ordered a biopsy which determined I had cancer. I knew I initially had a “CHOICE” as to how to respond to this thing, so went into my design studio and got to work! I started designing and styling, then called my team together and we created!

The Choice” came to life! It is my artistic processing of the emotion of

receiving the diagnosis. I made the decision to leave the negative behind and move through boldly into HOPE & Faith!

The care I have received from the medical teams has been phenomenal! The network of friends going through the same thing, the survivors and those passionate about beating Cancer’s ass…I gravitate towards! Support is #1 but it still doesn’t make the process of surgeries, radiation therapy and years of monitoring any easier.

Shredded


This set was in response to my lumpectomy/ partial mastectomy that I had endured just weeks after my initial diagnosis. Doctors treat cancer aggressively and quickly. I am grateful for this but at the same time it is a lot to handle emotionally as well as physically. The fear of the unknown is sometimes very heavy considering the future potential of losing both breasts if this enemy tries to attack again. This is the FIGHT, the WAR AND the VICTORY in my eyes!

FF

- When did you know you had a passion

EG

- My passion for the photography form of

for telling stories through pictures?

storytelling goes back to my wanting to be apart of the art world. I have always enjoyed art and have known it was something I wanted to pursue since second grade, when I declined going to recess in order to draw or take photos of my friends as we played dress up. When I got to high school my dad lent me his 35 MM camera, and with his support I continued taking pictures of my friends on a more professional level. After that, my love of photography really started to flourish. I took as many art classes and photography classes as I could in college, and expanded my experience from there. It was through experimentation and play that lead me to fully develop my passion for photography.

FF

- Where do fashion and photography meet?

EG

- Fashion meets photograph in the conceptual

stages for me. Brainstorming, coming up with ideas and scenarios for different visuals are not only a lot of fun, but it’s where I work to match the fashion with the photographic style and process. It’s where my creativity and what I want the final product to be make contact, and physically manifest the idea.

I can really capture the essence of who they are. No matter what my subject matter is or what situation the person is in; to get emotion on film is a beautiful thing.

- You do slight airbrushing on some of your photography.

EG

- Airbrushing and retouching will always be apart of

What are the upsides and downsides to airbrushing to you?

this industry. I think that it has a lot of upsides. In my work, I exercise the positives by streamlining it aesthetically; making the photographs flow easily. I do my best to have my adjustments look natural, primarily smoothing skin and bulges. It’s possible to use retouching to simply polish the image, and that is often my goal. The downsides to airbrushing are when people tend to overdo it. It’s too easy to go overboard and make something completely unrealistic and glaringly obvious. That’s wrong! Skin so smooth that it’s shiny just doesn’t make since. It will always look odd.

FF

- What about working in Chicago enhances your work?

EG

- Living in Chicago greatly enhances my practice! It’s

ten times easier to get my hands on all kinds of resources from equipment, to food, to all kinds of crazy props and materials. My location also makes it easier for my teams and models to come to the studio. When I shoot on location, there are endless amounts of places/setting I can go to.

True Cinderella FF

- The shoot “True Cinderella”

is a Marie Antoinette meets fairy tale. What was your inspiration behind this?

EG

- A lot of thought went into my

“True Cinderella” shoot. The inspiration primarily came from the designer, Rachel Sarah Goldberg of Thanatos Couture, who made the garments. She was primarily influenced by the Rococo Movement of the 18th century. Combing the fantastical elements of what happens in the original Cinderella story by the Brothers Grimm, with this beautiful artistic movement resulted in her stunning designs. They are truly some of the most interesting and beautiful garments I’ve ever seen. Naturally, they were my inspiration. I designed the aesthetic of the shoot around the color palettes and textures found in the fabrics, and I am very happy with the way it all turned out.

True Cinderella FF

- The Cinderella character has

this elegance and regal aura about her. What made you want to portray Cinderella, after the rags?

EG

- She was portrayed as regal,

because throughout the entire story she is a character with a pure heart whose worthy of the princess she becomes. It’s not only more fitting to the narrative to portray her that way, but it’s also a lot more fun. This is not only my perspective to portray her in this light, the designer made the dress to embody all of the magic that Cinderella represents.

FF

- We at Fashion Faces love

the way the “True Cinderella” shoot tells a story. Out of all the types of photography you are doing, which is your favorite?

EG

- Editorial Creative Fashion

shoots have always been, and will always be my favorites to shoot. I love having unlimited freedom with my work. In a creative editorial I can tell any story, with any model, wearing anything, with any makeup, in any setting, with any props. The ability to unleash unbridled creativity into a project is something I'll cherish forever. I will always make work that I can express something with in this manner.

The first time I saw Gianni Versace’s 1990

Summer/Spring collection I knew that fashion was something worth capturing. I want my photography to evoke a lasting memory or feeling, just like what I felt when viewing this line for the first time. The inspiration behind the “Without/Permit” shoot came from Luc Besson’s “Angel-A”. I felt that the shoot reflected perfectly the mood he was portraying in his story. It’s images of a beautiful woman running away from her broken heart, an angel fallen from another place, a woman not free to love. I love using New York’s landscape for my photos, because the city is so unique. New York City gives my photography the right contrast and intensity, with imagery we take for granted as our every day scenery.

21st Century Modernist Scandinavian Minimalist Kool Meets Yohji Yamamoto!

Having said this, let us now move to something genuinely cool original and interesting! And it’s called Sweden! All of you who perceive me as some sort of ‘cutting edge style gangster’, always ready to sink my teeth into the bloated buttocks of the fashion industry, and punish it for its mediocrity and unoriginality! And only ‘bigging up’ the ‘cool cutting edge and terminally arty!’ May find it somewhat incongruous, to now find me this month lavishing praise on what is effectively a ‘high

Art Meets Architecture & Graphic Design! Get Ready USA! The first COS flagship store will open in NYC this spring!

First let’s get my final word on London Fashion Week out of the way! As is usual these days with such events, it passed without trace’! Loud flashy and mediocre in the extreme, it thrilled only the credulous and dim! Disappointing for me were the Korean designers, whom I had very much looked forward to seeing, as on a recent trip to Korea, I had seen some wonderful examples of extremely original Korean design! Sadly none of these were on show in London, and all the Korean designers on show during LFW, were a sad flashy artless ‘Lady Gaga-esque’ mish mash of other peoples ideas from the past! All were products of London based fashion schools! And none had any style or originality of their own!

street multiple’! COS though is like no multiple you have ever seen! Being both effortlessly cool and wonderfully arty! The COS brands excellent good taste incredibly affordable good quality and superb sense of style, puts the COS way ahead of the game! And certainly leaves 99% of ‘A List’ designer brands looking extremely tacky vulgar and overpriced by comparison! A cool edgy quirky minimalist alchemy that very cleverly mixes Scandinavian minimalist Kool! With an artful dash of Yohji Yamamto, a touch of ‘vintage’ Prada (before it lost the plot!) and a dash of ‘vintage’ Hemut Lang (before he also lost it!). Sweden is considered to be perhaps the most civilised and best educated country in the world! With the highest standard of living and certainly the best quality of life!

The Swedish/Scandinavian design aesthetic is famous

throughout the world for its technical simplicity and pure ultra kool perfect functional minimal aesthetic and mastery of style.

In Sweden they don’t waste time on meaningless retro or pointless over decoration! This is considered cheap vulgar and unintelligent! The classic Bauhaus ethic of Walter Gropius, the brilliant, visionary and even today hugely influential pre war German designer’s ‘Form Follows Function’! Is something that has not been forgotten in the brilliance and purity of Scandinavian design! Indeed, in Sweden and Denmark, it could almost be said that they are ‘genetically incapable’ of bad taste! (Unless they have been drinking that is! When the ‘Inner Viking’ will often manifest itself!). Sweden, indeed he whole of Scandinavia has, like everywhere else, a ‘dark side’! There are in the winter very long dark nights with little daylight! This often leads to a (sometimes delicious) brooding melancholy! But also to a certain thoughtfulness, which can and indeed does lead to the creation of excellence in design! Not only with extremely cool stylish wearable affordable and extremely functional fashion! But also with brilliant innovative and globally successful music production! And now with the most incredible brilliant and addictive ‘Scandi-Noir Crime Series’ for TV! Such as the brilliant Wallender, and way out ahead of the rest the incredible ‘Bridge’! Sweden/Denmark, are showing the rest of the world how it’s done when it comes to addictively hypnotic drama! The Bridge though has been a global cult phenomenon! Dark brooding and in every sense addictive! It features a Swedish Policewoman called ‘Saga’, who is now a global cult figure, and has pushed the sales of leather pants by 100%! COS clothing is a reflection of the entire alchemy and philosophy that make up the cool minimalist brilliance of Swedish/Scandinavian fashion design! Imagine the best of Scandinavian pure minimalist kool, meets Yohji Yamamotos, Japanese Ultra Cool ‘Zen Styling’! And you have the flavour and essential alchemy of COS!

Seriously 21st Century Modernist, with no negative retro influences! COS is the ultimate destination for the more intelligent sophisticated Women (of any age) with taste, who want that cool intelligent very continental European minimalist styling! Cos is thankfully absolutely not ‘rock n roll’! It is not flashy trashy or vulgar, and is an indicator of what the modern stylish intelligent Woman really wants to wear! Rather than the often rather nasty over decorated ‘trash and flash’ that most brands and designers keep throwing into the fashion circus!

#FFAPR14 | fashionfacesmag.com


I became interested in photography when I got my first camera at sixteen. I had no idea how to use it. In the

beginning it was frustrating, because the results were disappointing most of the time. When I left high school, I went on to study photography and different camera techniques. I practiced everyday! I really admire the works of Lina Tesch and Emily Soto. They both have very unique and different styles. Tesch’s work is dark and provoking, and Soto’s work is very dreamy and full of images. I looked and continue to look to them, because they have achieved so much in the industry and always stay true to their style. I want my work to show the beauty of the small things that surround us everyday. I want people to be inspired by simple things and be happy. For me fashion photography is a genre that allows you to be creative, and leaves you room for ideas and stories. Plus I love fashion and the ever-changing trends that comes with it. Combining clothing and colors, and making them fit in my pictures is always interesting. Everyone wants to take a photo that is special and different from everything that has already been done before. While in the preparing and discussing stage of my shoots I like to get to know the model. When you do this you can better capture his/her personality. I love to shoot models that have a flair to them, and not just fit into the mold of what is expected. While we are on set I want them to feel as comfortable as possible and have fun. A shoot is a team effort; you get better results when everyone is at ease and on the same page.

sa ville natale de Marseille ouvren la voie au développement artistique de Fred Sathal. Elle s’installe à Paris à la fin des années 80, et présente sa première collection de prêt-à-porter en 1994. Immédiatement acclamée pour son originalité, sa créativité et ses techniques particulières d’utilisation du volume, de la coupe, de la matière et de l’ornementation, une douzaine de collections se succèderont pendant cette décennie. En 2000, elle fait une entrée très remarquée dans le monde de la Haute Couture, produisant des pièces uniques, véritables œuvres d’art. Les experts ne s’y trompent pas et son travail est maintenant dans les collections du Musée de la Mode de Marseille, du musée Galliera à Paris, du musée des arts décoratifs Louvre-Rivoli à Paris et au sein du Fonds National d’Acquisition d’Art Contemporain. Elle a reçu de nombreuses récompenses, plusieurs fois lauréate des Vénus de la Mode, et déclarée Femme en Or de l’Année à Courchevel en 1999. La créativité de Fred dépasse de loin la mode. Au fil des années, elle a travaillé sur des installations et des expositions. Elle a aussi conçu et réalisé des costumes pour le théâtre et le ballet, notamment pour le Roméo et Juliette d’Angelin Preljocaj. Le grand public a pu découvrir son travail dans la comédie musicale Notre-Dame de Paris dont elle a créé tous les costumes.

I am very interested in the world of fashion, thanks to my family...especially my sister, Olatz.

She always liked to take my pictures and said that I was photogenic. Olatz took the first photos of me and encouraged me to try my luck in the agencies. Over the years, while I was travelling in Berlin, Germany my friend, Aitor Auzmendi, (photographer and film camera) created my first photo shoot. He’s been involved in all that I have been doing since and has always supported my growth as a model. Five years ago I started working in the South of Spain (Caños de Meca, Cádiz), taking the summer season in restaurants as a cook (El Arriate, El Dorado and La Jaima). My first trip to Morocco (with friend, Mikel) had millions of adventures that you can read in one year (because I am writing the book now) where we lived very intensely; as we were held for thirty hours in a hostel, went for Ramadam, saw the desert, swindled police, climbed the highest mountain of the country, etc...

THE BOLD AND THE BEAU TIFUL


T

he following years we desired to fly further,

so we traveled to Asia to tour countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Borneo and Brunei. This took us one full year with a knapsack on our backs, so we could tell you a thousand and one stories! To simplify, I say all you need to put in your backpack are just four things; Passport, credit cards, cash, a pencil and paper. You don’t need anything else to really get

to know a country. The rest will teach to you. We have to see what’s there outside, because we need to know what’s inside. Its good to read books, listen to stories, watching movies, documentaries, etc... But honestly, only you can really see when you look with your eyes.

Last year was special for me. I met my girlfriend, Rebeca, when I was chef in La Jaima (Cadiz). After just 15 days, I proposed she go with us again to visit India, Thailand, Cambodia, Viet Nam, Philippines and China. When we returned, Rebeca and I moved to Madrid, Spain where both she and my family (especially my mother) convinced me to sign up with an agency.

Thanks to them, in less than a year I managed to fulfill my dream of being a model. Thanks to my family (specifically, my MOTHER), Nerea, Erika, Olatz, Roberto (who is my particular photographer with Andrée), and especially Rebecca. They advised and encouraged me that every day is not the last. I am pausing with fashion for five months to get back to the kitchen of the restaurant, Arriate Lounge & Bar in Ibiza, Spain. - Urtzi Sánchez Follow me my travel and cuisine at: http://urtzisanchez.wordpress.com TW: @urtzisan IG: @ urtzisanchezarrillaga

Dieses Make-up habe ich mit AquaColors von Eulenspiegel geschminkt. Ich war überrascht, wie gut man mit normaler “Kinderschminke” arbeiten kann. Ein Glück, dass Model und Fotografin so geduldig waren! Es hat seine Zeit gedauert, die Blumen in allen Details zu malen. Bei der Auswahl des Models habe ich auf eine schöne Haut und helle Wimpern und Augenbrauen geachtet, die nicht vom Motiv ablenken.

This make-up I’ve made up ​​ with Aqua Colors of Eulenspiegel. I was surprised how well you can work with normal “children’s paint.” Luckily, model and photographer were so patient! It has taken time to paint the flowers in detail. In the selection of the model I made use of the beautiful skin and bright eyelashes and eyebrows that do not distract from the subject.

Dieses Shooting fand bei eisiger Kälte und Regen statt. Wir mussten

fast eine Stunde im Auto warten, bis der Regen nachgelassen hatte und wir uns nach draußen begeben konnten. Die Frisur hat dem Wetter standgehalten. Nur die Lippen des Models mussten ab und zu aufgefrischt werden (siehe Making-of). Shootings mit der Fotografin Andrea Hübner sind immer toll, da sie sehr stimmungsvolle Bilder macht und wir oft einen ähnlichen Geschmack haben. This shoot took place in the freezing cold and rain. We had almost an hour in the car to wait until the rain stopped and we were able to move out. The hair style has withstood the weather. Only the lips of the models from time to time had to be refreshed (see Making-of). Shoots with photographer Andrea Hübner are always great because they make very evocative images and we often have similar taste.

D ieses Shooting war ein weiteres gemeinsames Projekt mit der

Fotografin Andrea Hübner. Hierfür habe ich zum ersten mal ein Outfit selber geschneidert. In den Karostoff hatte ich mich auf den ersten Blick verliebt. Um den Look etwas femininer zu gestalten, habe ich die Spitze mit eingearbeitet. Haare und Make-up habe ich dementsprechend auf das Outfit abgestimmt. Model Hannah hat ein wunderschönes Profil, weshalb die seitlichen Portraits dieser Serie meine Favoriten sind. This shoot was another joint project with the Photographer, Andrea Hübner. For this I have one tailored the outfit itself for the first time. I had love at first sight with the checked fabric. To make the look a little more feminine, I had worked with the top. Hair and makeup I have used accordingly with the outfit. Model Hannah has a beautiful profile, so the lateral portraits in this series are my favorites.

while skillfully designing extravagant and artistic couture has been celebrated world wide. When

asked where he gains is inspiration from Furne

answers with this, “I often find myself basing

my designs on six constants: movies, music,

vintage images, gothic art, books and plays.”

Furne was mesmerized by fashion from

an early age having inherited his mother and grandmother’s passion for beautiful clothes

and began sketching at the age of ten.

Originally from the Philippines, Furne One’s

first stride into the fashion world saw him win

the MEGA Magazine Young Designer of the

Philippines Award in 1994; a competition judged

Natori saw Furne’s talent and offered him an apprenticeship at his New York design house. It was here that Furne was

able to further explore and indulge his passion for fashion. In the same year, Furne also won the first prize at Japan’s Women’s Wear Awards and just three years later he went on went on to become a finalist at Manila’s Fashion Designer Awards.

After following the rise of the Amato success, in 2007, Swarovski commissioned Furne to design a glittering bridal dress which featured in their limited edition book, Unbridled.

Furne’s collaboration with Swarovski did not end there, and he has since partnered with the

brand to produce show-stopping collections for its Crystalized Swarovski Elements events. In 2008 Furne’s imaginative creations caught the eye of the European fashion elite at

Germany’s Next Top Model and he was invited to be a special guest designer in the shows

season finale with supermodel Heidi Klum. The tremendous response to his collections resulted in a reprise of this role for the following three years, a move which rocketed

Furne One and Amato Couture onto the international fashion centre stage.

Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Nicole Scherzinger, Amber Rose and Nicki Minaj.

When asked about the keys to his success, Furne shares

that it’s about diligence. “Hard work and diligence. But, you know, there are so many talented designers everywhere so I think you also need a little luck. Being in the right

place at the right time. I was lucky.” he said with a smile. To see his collection grace the runway at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week NY Fall 2014 visit Fashion-FacesTV on YouTube.
