s recent as ten years ago, cosmetic treatments were once only associated with the rich and famous since they were priced out-of-range for the average person. On top of which, these treatments were in aesthetic clinics which were very likely to be located in posh neighbourhoods or shopping districts. With 200+ businesses offering varying levels of medical aesthetic services in British Columbia, it is fair to say that the above no longer holds true. Enter innovators, such as Chobee Marketing MD Founder and CEO Lancho Cephivenus, who has identified this beauty niche and is capitalizing on it. Cephivenus is a millennial with a cause?to turn the traditional non-inclusive aesthetics industry upside down with a modern approach that brings everyone to the table, not just a select few, and connect them in a way that is accessible, portable, and connected.



Cephivenus was 27 years old when he launched Chobee Aesthetic Marketing. He had a goal of providing the burgeoning medical aesthetic industry in Vancouver unique customized marketing solutions for doctors and clinics that were struggling using generic pre-packaged products and out-of-date social media campaigns. The response was overwhelming, and what was once a ?young man with a plan?has grown into a company employing/ contracting with 20+ persons. Key to this growth was assembling the Chobee team, not as a traditional professional unit, but as a cohesive group of creatives, is what Cephivenus credits as the core of the company?s success. ?Our team is creatively strong, experienced, and growing. The Chobee approach is a refreshing alternative to the tired traditional marketing of medical aesthetics in this competitive time. The businesses that we chose to work with benefit immensely, both in customer/ staff satisfaction and financially. It is very gratifying." 8 8


It is this style of leadership, and progressive thinking which has strengthened the position of over 25 companies across Canada. By identifying gaps in existing business models that were improved upon, clients were able to generate additional revenue of over $10M in the past year alone. In the queue for joining the Chobee roster are ten clinics within BC and from across Canada, and as a conceptualist, Cephivenus is designing four client clinics which will be constructed in Richmond, Burnaby, Surrey, and White Rock.


Cephivenus, the Chobee team, and the clients, work together on dynamic marketing campaigns which champion an omnichannel approach that may?depending on the client market?incorporate video and photography production, social media campaigns, website development/ revisualizing, WeChat/ KOL strategies, print and digital media, street-level marketing, and so much more?all available in a selection of languages. Making himself and the team available at major industry conferences to speak and educate is another key element that Cephivenus utilizes to reach the aesthetics market. In just the past year, he presented at the Western Canada 10 Aesthetic Summit 2019, Fotona StarWalker Product Launch, and the Prollenium Annual Event. Cephivenus credits his two passions for the success of Chobee. ?My participation in the fine arts since childhood and the study of business in Canada has given me a unique advantage over others in this market. Using beauty, whether it is in video, photography, words, or the type of models we work with, comes very naturally for me.

At the end of the day, medical aesthetics is all about beauty, and this is my life.? Before Chobee After graduating high school, Cephivenus took on a creative role at a well-known Chinese fashion website followed by a stint as a magazine producer, during which time he developed an artistic portfolio of his style of collage that married digital imagery and deconstructed pressed flowers. In 2011, Cephivenus was invited by the Taipei International Flora Exposition to exhibit a series of his mixed media works based on modern Chinese bird-and-flower paintings. The exhibition was very well received, and this success helped Lancho become well known in the international art circle. Cephivenus?next step in his career, was to participate in a 2012 Arts competition organized by the world-renowned artist Murakami Takashi. Placing 7th out of 500 participants saw

By 2013, he had presented at a total of seven exhibitions (two solo and four group shows in Taipei, one traveling group show in Canada), plus multiple speaking engagements with accompanying press. This experience at such a young age helped him develop a keen perception of aesthetics and the ability to adapt to high-pressure working environments, and facilitated the desire to relocate to Vancouver.

him debut at a joint exhibition in Takashi?s Hidari Zingaro Gallery. 10 10




On the Horizon Exciting changes are on the medical aesthetics horizon due to Cephivenus and his vision for success. By creating and maintaining strong communication with the physicians and the clinic owners, he is able to provide solutions for problems that only recently have begun to present in the industry. Priority has been given to first addressing the desire of beauty centres, and health spa?s to tap into the revenue stream that injectables, such as Botox and fillers, can generate. The creation of Chobee?s ?Injector Express?allows businesses to offer full injectable services without having to employ full-time physicians and procure/ stock inventory, as this can be financially daunting to new or smaller sized companies. ?Injector Express?currently contracts two persons, a certified physician and a registered nurse, who are licensed to perform treatments and are available on an as-needed basis.

12 12

If a company experiences a strong response from their client-base through the use of ?Injector Express?and wishes to make the service permanent, Chobee will work with them to recruit a physician to join their team, train the staff on services and inventory management, and create stellar marketing campaigns.



?Chobee has a strong belief in beauty. The idea of aesthetics, in general, is very appealing and appeals to my artistic centre. Our mission at Chobee is to elevate the standard of beauty, both in the physical presence of the clinics we design and work with all the way through to the visual marketing tools we create.?

Stefania Volpi Th e Cr eat ive Gen iu s Beh in d Alt aM oda It alia Altamoda Italia Group s.r.l. Via Valdera C. 183-4/A, 56038 Ponsacco (PI), Italy April 8, 2019

ltaModa Italia is defined by the glamorous, luxurious, and wonderfully eclectic pieces created in Southern Italy by expert artisan craftspersons at the behest of founders Stefani and Riccardo Volpi.

Since 1998, the couple?s irreverent vision has melded fashion and design to create unmistakable items which showcase uniqueness, distinction, and have a visual impact, regardless of which room the pieces reside within. The often whimsical furniture pieces are crafted with luxurious fabrics by the Ralph Lauren and Christian Lacroix Collections, velvet, silk, and incorporate various precious metals, including silver and gold, rhinestones, and crystals. From the living room to the children?s room, AltaModa Italia offers a parade of brilliant top-class creations. Inspired, sometimes by the simplest concepts, the Volpi?s have the ability to transfer an idea into tangible home dĂŠcor with a tailored style and approach, often typical of fashion design. The duo marries fashion and design aesthetics to create a new interpretation of subjects that we may see and pass by without a second glance. Each reveling in the tiniest detail until it becomes a critical element in the realization of a unique piece. The installation at Salon del Mobile.Milano 2019 was hosted by Stefania Volpi and her team. The vibrant space was bedecked by latest collection ?Beach?which was inspired by Italy?s extensive shorelines, quirky and colourful aquatic animals, and the lush plant life that thrives underwater, and washes up upon rocky shores. Each element is interpreted with a childlike ardor that results in a representation that is a brilliantly fantastical version of reality. Volpi delights in the speaking to the brand?s newest offerings created for ?children, the teenager, or for a little boy. All elements are here, even the fragrance we produced for the home is similar to the beach in Tuscany with the scents of flower, fruit, and blackberries. Through it, you can sense all the dimensions of the sea, with the wind, the sand, and the beach.?



20 20




When not traveling for business, Stefania is at home in the Tuscan country- side, living and overseeing production at the AltaModa Italia workshop. It is a different style of workplace. It is one that revolves around the concept of family, living a full life, and the pursuit of happiness. Employees are free to bring their babies and children to work as needed; together, they eat and create side-by-side. Pieces that require hand-painted details are finished by a single artisan who works from her home. ?This woman prefers to work in the country-side with all her animals around, a very typical Tuscany artist,? says Volpi as she smiles, taking pride in the traditions of her country. It is this sense of family that inspires Stefania to arise and get creative in the kitchen, baking up cookies and other confections to bring to the workplace for all to enjoy with their morning coffee. She believes strongly in the creation and maintenance of a warm and encompassing workplace and explains that ?the feeling must be good for everybody who works with our family.? Around the world, AltaModa Italia is renowned for its collections that inspire a way to live in a luxury-oriented environment that is expressive, sophisticated, amazing, and unique. The charm of the AltaModa Italia children?s collections has made them irresistible to those who enjoy an unbridled exploration of pattern and texture. This true ?Made in Italy?home decor brand is available in North America through stockists like Casa Italia Concept in Vancouver, New York, and Miami. Internationally, the brand has representation in dozens of countries, including the UK, Finland, Belarus, Russia, Nigeria, Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia, India, and Greece.

Our watches reflect an affordable luxury that allows them to be accessible to a wider audience.

n a beautiful May evening, Livingspace celebrated their 30th anniversary with a grand reveal event that showcased a $2-million expansion and renovation.



The luxury home dĂŠcor retailer grew to an incredibly impressive 30,000-square-foot from a somewhat paltry 19,000-square-feet. The launch event was a wonderfully warm celebration which included suppliers, brand partners from Europe, the cities top interior designers, and VIPs.

Owner Ross Bonetti welcomed Maria Porro of Porro S.p.A, Alessandro and Susanna Minotti of Minotti S.p.A, Carola Bestetti, CEO/ Designer of Living Divani, Carolina Lanzani, owner of MDF Italia, and we want to give a special shout-out to the always impeccably dressed Aleem Kassam of Kalu Interiors. ?After 30 years in business, we felt a complete redesign was the perfect way to celebrate and to assure our customers we plan to get better with age,? said Bonetti. ?We're thrilled to showcase Paola Lenti and Molteni&C/ Dada - some of the best Italian designers in the world - in a unique space that authentically captures the spirit of these iconic brands.? Housed in a 1930's-era printing factory in the Armoury District of Vancouver, the Livingspace expansion involved adding the fifth floor to its showroom. Guests delighted in partaking in a ?Vespa tour?around the Grand Milano Cathedral, coming upon the unexpected rooftop garden courtyard, and discovering the power of the lime green Lamborghini Huracan LP580 Coupe alongside the orange Aperol Aperitivo soda fountain.

44 44

Paola Lenti, renowned for its sophisticated use of colour and innovative materials, features both indoor and outdoor furniture set against the original, industrial factory space. In contrast, Canada's first Molteni&C/ Dada monobrand showroom offers a more refined and intimate experience as you move through the space with individual room-like


settings revealing the latest in kitchens, closets, and furniture. Throughout the renovation process, Livingspace worked diligently to ensure its coveted heritage location was preserved, and the result is a gorgeous contemporary layout that is purposefully juxtaposed with the building's nearly century-old history.



? t's been an incredible 30 years. We are so fortunate to work with sought-after designers and suppliers who have an incredible talent for balancing art and design. It is extremely heartwarming to witness the support shown by these key players in the interior design world for Vancouver's burgeoning home design and dĂŠcor industry.?

Since opening its doors in 1988, Livingspace has evolved from a furniture-only retailer to a one-stop destination for building a picture-perfect modern lifestyle. The Vancouver-based retailer is already looking towards the future with the anticipated arrival of a Minotti monobrand showroom later this year. To experience Livingspace's impressive redesign, visit the showroom between Monday and Saturday, at 1706 West 1st Avenue in Vancouver, BC. 46 46

t the pinnacle of high horology and understated elegance, the Maison Vacheron Constantin creates timepieces with unique technical and aesthetic signatures and an extremely high level of finishing touches. The luxury Swiss timepiece Maison, with over two hundred and sixty years of heritage, launched its first Western Canada boutique on prestigious Alberni Street in Vancouver?s Luxury Zone. Alberni Street is recognized as one of Canada?s most desirable luxury retail addresses, offering a convenient shopping experience and proximity to hundreds of best-in-class retailers, in keeping with Vacheron Constantin?s high level of sophistication and commitment to outstanding customer service.


The interior of the boutique is imbued with elegance and noble materials ? wood, bronze and leather ? which create a hushed, discreetly luxurious atmosphere. This is the Maison?s seventh opening in North America, Toronto, Beverley Hills, Costa Mesa, Las Vegas, New York, and Miami. Built upon a legacy of innovation and the pursuit of excellence, each timepiece is crafted in Geneva, Switzerland with care and passion by the finest watchmakers and craftspersons. Known for achieving monumental technical feats as well as timepieces with beautiful finishing, the new downtown boutique carries the entire range of watches, as well as boutique-exclusive models, and offers the rare Les Cabinotiers service, which makes bespoke pieces tailored to the client?s desires, and one-of-a-kind masterpieces. ?We are delighted to have the opportunity to serve Canadians in British Columbia with a new boutique strategically located in the Alberni luxury district. The Western location will serve to complement our existing East coast Toronto, Ontario boutique and enhance our Canadian client?s understanding of Vacheron Constantin, and the Maison?s commitment to belle haute horlogerie,? said Leslie Kobrin, Vacheron Constantin President of the Americas.

In May, Sharp Magazine gathered an exclusive group of west coast watch collectors and VVIPs to preview the latest Vacheron Constantin?s timepieces, including the new Fiftysix and Patrimony blue dial watches.


The on-location event was followed by an intimate dinner at the award-winning and internationally renowned Hawksworth Restaurant, under the deft guidance of chef Stephanie Noel. 66
