ISSUE 30 #FFJUL14

July is here! The halfway point of the year and for us Americans, a time of celebration for our political freedom. However, world-wide, everyone wants the chance to speak their mind and make a difference in their world. As artists, our work speaks volumes. Images worth thousands of words speak the languages of every country represented in Fashion Faces. We occasionally get the chance to get behind the pictures to interview those like this month’s Brande Wilkerson, Robin Hagy and Eric Wimberly. From these moments we get to peek into the dreams that fuel your endeavors, and who it is you’re supported by to see it all come to fruition. What is YOUR message? My challenge to you is to decifer what you want the world to ‘hear’ when your images ‘speak.’ Though we certainly have language barriers and miles between us, often the colors, textures and lighting in these shoots speak what our mouths may not. Perhaps we will never meet, yet we will recognize each other in compositions, expressions and themes that typify our artistic style. Think Monet or Van Gogh. We recognize them instantly. They say you only get once chance to make a first impression. I choose to graciously observe the ever-morphing talent and identity of growing talents. Some of you are teaching me, while others I feel I am mentoring. Needless to say, this is the evolution of one’s self. To be lost and found in your work; to put a piece of yourself on display “Show & Tell-ing” this audience your vulnerability and wavering confidence. Know who you are and what YOU want to say. It IS important, valid and necessary to do what Art should - challenge you to think. Tell your stories in pictures and as Leland Thomas states, “At every crossroad, follow your Dream. It is courage to let your heart lead the way.” Thank YOU for teaching ME to take those same steps toward my dream. #finishstrong Creatively yours,

The name FöM™ comes from a blend of the words femme and homme, and I also love the imagery of sea foam-- clean, refreshing, natural! We live in a new era. Old gender roles and rules are confining and out-of-date. I decided to design the FöM™ products as I began to see an exciting new feeling of individualism and selfexpression developing in my clients and people I meet everyday. People want to have self-determination in all aspects of their lives more than ever I believe, and that is reflected in their choice of lifestyle products too. FöM™ expresses that ideal.


FöM™ is the first lifestyle brand to embrace the self determination of the new millennium, and our Sex-Flex™ products are carefully formulated to help you achieve true self-expression, while supplying restorative, rejuvenating moisture along with natural, enhancing color.

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 FöM™! We haven't launched yet, but people who are interested can sign up to receive email updates about FöM™ www.bymarcela.com

The pup was forced to endure the extreme summer heat and when he was found, he was not only suffering from heat stress but the hot pavement left him with blisters on his tiny paws. He was quickly rushed to the Arizona Humane Society and medical staff immediately began to cool him off with water and fluids. Wally has been given a second chance at life and is ready to find a new forever friend who will appreciate his adorable “Chewbacca  looks” and his abundance of energy. The 5-month-old West Highland terrier mix enjoys games of fetch, vigorously shaking stuffed toys while parading around the house and will play with dogs of all sizes (even a Great Dane).    Wally is available NOW at the Campus for Compassion located at 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix.

SKIN CANCER - TANNING IS NOT TRENDING written by - laine dakin

In the 1920s, fashion icon and designer Gabriel ‘Coco’ Chanel popularized ‘the tan’ as the look for those who wanted to be stylish. Perfumer Jean Patou even produced the first tanning product promising to “put an end In any discussion on cancer, skin cancer must be a topic. In the last 30 years more people have had skin cancer than ALL other forms of cancer combined. The CDC’s latest pronouncement is that 1 in 5 people in the U.S. will have some form of skin cancer in their lifetime, therefore the obsession with tanning as a way to look more attractive, healthier, sexier and appear

to sunburn, soften and tan the skin.” Sadly it didn’t do anything for safety. With the arrival of swinging 1960s a tan told everyone you had the spare time to tan and the money to travel. It also intimated an enthusiasm for the outdoors, an active lifestyle implying more physicality and good health. Where has that led us: the Skin Cancer Foundation reports that over two million people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year, with one person dying from melanoma every hour!

Thankfully the appeal of the tan has begun to fade, as the public becomes

This is vital given the knowledge that 90 percent of all skin cancers, eye damage, and immune system suppression is associated with exposure to UV radiation.

Historically, the western world viewed sunburn

as an indicator of class as those doing manual labor were forced to work outdoors, people with pale skin could afford to have others work outside. Of course not everyone was born ‘pale’ so even in ancient times cosmetics and toiletries were used to fake it, even then they could be expensive and even dangerous like the lead based white face (o-shiroi) of Japan, and lead face powder for the courtiers of England and Louis XV’s court. Thankfully the sensible Victorian’s preferred a more unmade face moving the standard from alabaster to natural skin tone.

Apparently tanning can be just as habit-forming as drugs and alcohol.

Scientists measured the

brain activity and blood flow of study participants subjected to ultra violet radiation in a tanning bed and discovered that the UV rays stimulate several parts of the brain involved in addiction. All things considered the definition of a healthy glow needs to revert to one where we rely on an inner glow which is neither artificially whitened nor UV-damaged as the new standard for beauty and health.

radioactive, a personal story - brande wilkerson

fter being diagnosed with Breast Cancer in January 2014, I dove into processing my emotions towards it using fashion design & photography. It is my natural outlet and what I have done for years. I produced “The Choice” in response to my choice in responding to the initial diagnosis. Next was “SHREDDED” referring to the surgery I had immediately following the diagnosis. (Seen in Fashion Faces Magazine April 2014) I chose to be positive and see the victory through the battle from the beginning. Naturally, Shredded, was a beautiful display of the real and transparent beauty of our fragile mortality as a women facing this battle. My doctor sent me to an oncologist where my lab results determined I would not need chemo but would go straight into radiation for 6 weeks. I was relieved I would not have to endure chemo, but that did not change the extreme range of emotions and fear that go through your head concerning your future with cancer. As a good patient, I did not protest. I completely trusted my team of doctors and started my radiation promptly. I was working on a lot of personal research for my diagnosis and making a list of questions awaiting my follow up with my surgeon. During this time, I produced Radioactive. I wanted this set to show the trust, beauty, strength, and determination I carried every day to my treatment session. I was intrigued by the healing treatment of radiation, an element present in the cosmos at the beginning life of a star! In designing this concept, I wanted my everyday posture to be reflected. Each day I was positioned with one shoulder arm over the head and the laser marking strategically placed over the breast. I wanted to reflect the grids, graphs & measuring that each nurse takes time to line me up under the laser each treatment session. You will see a bit of cosmic beauty, a bold color rays in lighting and makeup that illuminates the eye or vision. My makeup artist Kelsey Eggers was able to execute such a luminous ombre effect that highlighted Payton’s beautiful features! You see the midway through my treatment that she is halted in her process.

Tell us about your show with Univision.

DC Contigo is a show that features stories covering local entertainment and talent, traveling segments from countries such as El Salvador, Bolivia, Colombia and others, health, sports, fitness, cooking segments, beauty tips and make-overs. DC Contigo also provides viewers with the opportunity to participate in "Make a Wish" promotion in which they can participate to win different prizes.

Do you get nervous before every show?

Of course! At the beginning, I pretty much had butterflies in my stomach. Specially, when interviewing huge celebrities. I guess I could not believe I was meeting them and talking to them. Fortunately, the more you do it, the easier it gets. After  four years in the show, it has become second nature to me. 

How do you see yourself progress in this field?

I am a  visionary. I came to the US, and I have done things I never could have done back home in Colombia where I am from. So, to me anything is possible in this country. I would love to continue working as a tv host, but my dream job have always been working in movies which are is my true passion, so working as an actress and eventually as a producer in this industry will be truly a dream come true.

Are you also a model?

I am. I have been modeling since I was 17 and I believe it is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. At least for me, it has taught me a great deal about how to show yours strengths and use your assets to your benefit. Also, in my case, I have used modeling as a means to provide for support to pay for my studies. Thanks to this profession, I was able to study English and get my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration.

Do you prefer modeling more than hosting a TV show?

Uhhm. I would say modeling has a special place in my heart, and you can always go back to it. In fact, you need to love modeling and be comfortable in front of the camera if you want to work in the television industry. However, I prefer hosting as it gives me the opportunity to connect with people from all walks of life and learn so much from them. Also, I enjoy the connection I have with the viewers that approach me in public places to say hi and ask me to take a picture with their children.

What is something that you want to do that you haven’t done yet in your career?

I have done music videos and many tv spots, but I truly feel that acting is definitely something I would love to do either in tv series, theatre and movies.

With so much going on throughout your life how do you manage your time to get everything done?

Wow! Including me, I sometimes wonder how I do it. The fact is I have a very strong support from my family so I do not have to worry at home to do the laundry, mop the floors, or cook LOL. so it really helps a lot and I can use my energy to focus on work, getting my MBA degree and this tv/modeling career I love so much!

What’s you secret diet?

The secret is that there are not secrets. To be quite honest, exercise! I love jumping the cord, and yoga. It is just quite relaxing and relieves some much stress. As I once heard, you are as young as you are flexible.

fashionfacesmag.com | #FFJUL14

47


You’ve been on countless magazines and TV shows. What rituals do you do to get ready for the camera?

Well when you are on tv, you definitely become more aware of what looks good and what not. So, there are three things I keep in mind. One is my signature smile. It has to be clean and as white as possible, so I use my whiten strips before every show. Also, when filming, I like to do a voice check to make sure I am not too loud! As a good Latina, you kind of need to control that excitement in your voice so it does not show too much. Third, I am more aware of HD cameras, so I have learned that there are always make up tricks I need to incorporate to get the best looks possible.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I always knew I wanted to be my own boss. So a business owner.

Who inspires you?

Sofia Vergara and Shakira who are also from my hometown, Barranquilla in Colombia.

What advice would you give to people wanting to get into the scene?

If you enjoy the spotlight, hard work and most importantly do not pay attention about what other people think (except your loved ones), then, you are good to go!

Who’s did you expect to win the World Cup? Colombia of course!!!

Up every mornin’ just to keep a job

‘Cause it’s a five o’clock world when the whistle blows

I gotta fight my way through the hustlin’ mob

No one owns a piece of my time

Sounds of the city poundin’ in my brain

And there’s a long-haired girl who waits, I know

While another day goes down the drain

To ease my troubled mind

But it’s a five o’clock world when the whistle blows

In the shelter of her arms every thing’s okay

No one owns a piece of my time

She talks and the world goes slippin’ away

And there’s a five o’clock me inside my clothes

And I know the reason I can still go on

Thinkin’ that the world looks fine

When every other reason is gone

Tradin’ my time for the pay I get

In my five o’clock world, she waits for me

Livin’ on money that I ain’t made yet

Nothing else matters at all

Gotta keep goin’, gotta make my way

‘Cause every time my baby smiles at me

While I live for the end of the day

I know that it’s all worthwhile

UNITED STATES PHOTOGRAPHY + ILLUSTRATION

aking the acquaintance of many talented photographers has been one of the many rewarding facets of my role as Editor in Chief at Fashion Faces. Whether at events, photo shoots or online, I love viewing the myriad of images captured by our photographers; many of which we have the honor of sharing with the world through the pages of the publication. Needless to say, getting to know the ‘personality behind the lens’ is a yet whole other world of wonder worth capturing! One such personality that I have the pleasure of introducing is Portlandbased photographer, illustrator and mailman, Eric Wimberly.

My fortuitous introduction to Eric was made by Denver-based photographer, Mike Larremore, who shares in making the most to build relationships in the industry. How fortunate of Fate’s hat to tip its brim, presenting me with the introspective perspective, down-toearth interests and hopeful endeavors of Eric! Our time together was one of those social picture-perfect moments, seizing the very significance of the essence of every artist beyond their craft...down to their soul. Just before his 35th birthday, I inquire of Eric to humor me with an aesthetic point of view on his passions, profession, life, liquor, and the American Dream. How patriotic. Happy birthday, buddy.

that is for me. My day job is that I’m a mailman. My best friend once interviewed me to show the differences in my daily life. when I clock in, I’m no longer Eric. I am 02266278. I am expected to be in the same place at the same time every day. I wear the same uniform daily. I walk the same route daily. Its routine on top of routine. On my days off, I’m Eric. I am an artist. I’m ever expected to do the same thing twice. I have no boss, etc... I could point out the differences all day. All letters and parcels are square/cubed.. lots of 90 degree angles. Can you say “boundaries?” With photography, It feels like my work is organic and free forming. I always tell my clients that 90% of the work I do is improvised. I never know what kind of shoot I’ll be doing until the model shows up with wardrobe. Then I go through it all and determine a location, look, etc. Which is the opposite from the post office. Everything has a set destination, route, schedule.

Also I am both an inrovert and extrovert. Yep, I’m weird.

Weird is good! Ha ha, I am ambidextrious too.

I get that whole dichotomy. What are your preferred

social activities? #extrovert

I’m ambidextrous. I do weird things with my hands.

I get privacy in my apt, but I can reach out and talk

to anyone. Or I’ll just go for a walk and let fate decide

whether something crosses my path or not. I attend

random events. Even things that I normally wouldn’t be

interested in. Shows, galleries, readings... I’m often just

a silent observer. Should someone approach me,

I could talk to them all night. People tend to keep

to themselves though.

My perspective on life is that If I want

to be something, I have to work at it. It just won’t happen on its own. So I can’t relax. I feel like I constantly have to be working. Even while on vacation, I have my caerma, and am constantly looking for photos. That happens because anytime I sit still, I feel like my mind is yelling “THIS IS WHY YOU ARENT WHERE YOU WANT TO BE, ERIC!”

“several influences that steer me in the direction for latest styles and such.” Who are they and what are some of the most impacting lessons you’ve gleaned from knowing them?

I adore editorials. I’m constantly

sneaking peeks at catalogs (while at work) and getting a feel for what’s new. I love that store for 3 reasons. 1- their brand is gorgeous. I get to grab a catalog and browse through it. 2- The art in the displays are often stunning. Beautiful installations. 3Every piece of furniture in Anthro is for sale. Everything. The one here in Portland had a porcelain table with a hole on one side. That side was slightly lower than the other. the hole was a drain, and the table was marked as “vintage butcher table” A table that used to be covered in pig’s blood now has shirts neatly folded on it.

photographer, robin hagy Interviewed by - destanye baldwin

When you can photograph in natural light or in a studio setting, which one do you prefer more and why?

Do I have to choose one or the other? LOL. I love the beauty of what natural light provides, especially

during that amazing golden hour when it is so buttery and soft. Just illuminates so exquisitely what ever it is

I'm photographing. I am learning so much with studio lighting, and the ability to be creative with my shoots

as far as mood and feeling. In fact I've been experimenting more with using my studio lights in natural light

settings. Something about combining these together opens up endless possibilities.

What about the Bohemian culture made you want to use this as the theme for your shoot? (I bet it was the cool clothes and all that natural light)

Yes! You hit the nail on the head! I have such a draw to the natural feel of the bohemian look. As Jenelle Gee

and I were pulling this shoot together, I was thinking, “where am I going to find wardrobe for this look?�

I began going through my closet, and there it all was! I was so surprised to realize how much I am a bohemian

woman at heart. The majority of the wardrobe for this shoot came from old clothes I have, down to the props

and jewelry. And, Jenelle has such a great look with her hair and free-spirited style, that it just came together

so naturally. When pulling our ideas together it all just fell into place.

From your website it shows many different styles of photography. Why did you want to venture into fashion photography and what do you like most about it compared to the others?

My first and foremost passion is with pets. That is where my journey began with photography. A story for

another day. LOL I have been venturing into other genres of photography. I signed up for a local meet up group

whose emphasis was fashion. I immediately fell in love! I am drawn to the artistic creativity of it. It's so fun

to collaborate and try different ideas with looks, scenery, lighting and composition. I can keep it simple with

just the beauty of my model, or go to extremes with wardrobe, makeup, hair and backdrop. In fashion, I feel

I'm allowed to be expressive and stretch the boundaries that I might not normally have with my everyday clients.

You do portraits of pets, and in one of the photographs from "Bohemian Princess" you had a horse in the background, what do you think animals bring/add to a photo?

I specialize in pet photography, but have fallen in love with the fashion side of imagery as well,

and constantly trying to find ways now of combining the two. In fact, it's become my obsession.

Animals bring such an unexpected quality to images. There's nothing staged generally. What you

get is authenticity when they are introduced into the story line of an image. It's the connection

between the model and the animal that brings the photograph to life. Then the viewer gets to

understand that relationship in their own way as well. I love the unexpected, and animals provide

me with an abundance of it!

You use to work in the corporate world. When was the moment you realized that photography was something worth pursing full time?

I fell into photography through wanting to capture beautiful images of my dogs, never with the

intention of it becoming a business. I was still doing my corporate day job, and I truly thought

I was going to retire in the corporate world. But then, like for many others, the economy took a turn,

and I was laid off. As tough as it was at the time, it was like a blessing in disguise. I don't know that

I would have ever had the guts to just jump, and follow my heart. It was the push I needed. I took

some time to do a mentorship, workshops and practice practice practice before I felt comfortable

with making it an official choice to do professionally. I have never looked back however. Sometimes

fate happens, and fortunately I am now living the authentic life I was meant to.


You stated in your bio that you love the arts "whether it was

hands on and making it, or just appreciating the beauty of someone else's creations." What other forms of art do you enjoy or partake in besides photography?

I have always enjoyed the arts in some form or another.

I used to sing and dance in my room to show tunes! Ok...Still do! I have expressed myself through writings such as poetry and short stories. I have been known to draw and paint a little as well. Another huge interest of mine is crafts. Yes, I'lll admit it. I am a craft geek! I love to make cards and invitations for friends. I have a closet...ok, second bedroom filled with all of my arts and crafts supplies to make cards and other crafty things like bottles with jewels, pushpin boards and now items for photo shoots. If there is something I can bling out, I will. It's an addiction. LOL fashionfacesmag.com | #FFJUL14

You're still new to the photography world;

what is something you want to conquer

that you find challenging now?

Since I am still new to digital imagery,

I am constantly challenging myself to

learn and grow in general. Perfecting

my ability to understand light and

composition is an ongoing process.

Also, I am still trying to grow with my

animal imagery. I am continuing

to expand my portfolio to include

equine photography as well, and

would love to build a side of my

business to include a more artistic

look utilizing painterly applications

such as Corel. Digital painting is

a whole new world, and much harder

then it looks. If I can some how bring

animals, fashion and digital painting

all together, I am excited to see what

come up with going forward.

How has living in Sacramento influenced what and the way you shoot?

The beauty is, living in Sacramento provides limitless possibilities for

photography. We have such variety with backdrops and culture, that

lends to such a vast opportunity for experimentation. Where else has

the fine mix of urban and nature that Sacramento has? It's such a

blank canvas. I love that I can be doing a bohemian shoot one day

in beautiful fields with incredible golden light, and the next day

choose to do a more urban edgy shoot with an awesome cityscape

as my backdrop all within a couple of miles of the other. Also, I feel

so lucky that Sacramento has such a wonderful community of creative

individuals that I can learn from, partner with and create beautiful

imagery with. I couldn't ask for anything more!

Small Is Beautiful! jewelry entirely subverts and transcends the whole idea of what jewelry is supposed to be: each piece is a beautiful and unique object—an original, inspired and wonderful minimalist sculpture infused with Taniguchi’s aesthetic signature. Like the Japanese religion of Shinto, which believes that everything has a unique spirit and essence, Taniguchi’s work is infused with a sense, spirit and essence that surpasses mere decoration and costume. To possess one of her distinctive pieces is in many ways a spiritually uplifting experience! Certainly, there is the sense that each of her perfectly created and highly individual designs are

perfection. There is also an extreme playfulness at work, making it irresistibly adorable and utterly addictive! In a world driven by marketing and branding and the often vulgar dictates of fashion and trends, it is quite exceptional to find someone like Taniguchi, who seems to be entirely and wonderfully untouched by any of this! She occupies her own unique space in her equally unique and creative world. The only other person I can think of who shares this rarity and originality is the wonderful London based French jewelry designer, Maud Traon!

Greek food is amazing, and addictively delicious! Greek food though should only be eaten in Greece, for only then do you experience the true ‘sensual magic’ of what is a terminal food orgasm! And, to wake up in the morning, then find a small café where you can breakfast on fresh Greek Yoghourt, honey and fruit, as you gaze languidly out over the most beautiful scenery and sea, you have ever seen, is food for the senses! The ‘colours’ landscape and sea in Greece are legendary, and has inspired poets and artists for centuries! From classical Greek culture, to Lord Byron’s romantic adventures, you can soak up the soft gentle soothing vibrations!

wurde 2004 in Villingen/Deutschland gegründet. Noch im selben Jahr wurde der Markenname und 2011 die Bildmarke (Herzdiamant), patentrechtlich geschützt. Zuvor auf die Anfertigung von Einzelstücken spezialisiert, wurde im Jahr 2010 erstmals eine kleine Prêt-à-porter Kollektion veröffentlicht. Die Musterung findet im eigenen Hause statt, produziert wird in Deutschland. Zum Einsatz kommen ausschließlich hochwertige, wertvolle Materialien wie Leder, Seide, Wolle und innovative Mischgewebe.

schneiderte aus Passion von klein auf, arbeitete anfangs in einem Maßatelier und entschloss sich dann für eine Ausbildung zur Damenschneiderin, die sie mit Erfolg abschloss und die ihr eine Auszeichnung der Stadt Freiburg wegen herausragender Leistung einbrachte. Im Anschluss arbeitete sie für verschiedene Mode-Labels und finanzierte so ihre Ausbildung zur Schneidermeisterin die sie im Jahr 2000 abschloss. Aufgrund ihrer Abschlussarbeiten im Fach Design/Modezeichnen sowie der Meistermappe wurde ihr ein Studienplatz an der Universität für Textil und Design in Reutlingen angeboten, stattdessen aber gründete sie 2004 ihr Label AVIATRIX. Ihre Inspiration bekommt sie meist aus den Stil-Epochen vergangener Zeiten, die sie dann mit modernen Elementen vereint. Ihr Faible für die Kombination scheinbar gegensätzlicher Materialien wie z.B. Leder mit zarter Seide kommt oft in ihren Entwürfen zum Tragen. Der Stil von AVIATRIX ist sehr verspielt, extravagant und detailverliebt. Es wird grossen Wert auf die Passform, die Wandlungsfähigkeit und den Komfort der einzelnen Styles gelegt. Das Ziel ist, hochwertige, individuelle Looks herzustellen, die Spaß machen, tragbar sind und sich vom “Modeketten-Mainstream” abheben. AVIATRIX veröffentlicht zur Zeit 2x jährlich (Frühling/Sommer und Herbst/Winter) Kollektionen mit aufregenden Partyoutfits und Kleidern, extravaganter Streetwear sowie dazu passende Accessoires wie Gürtel, Handtaschen und Handschuhe.
