PUBLISHER´S NOTE

A

h, spring. That amazing season of renewal, rebirth, splendor.

Take advantage of this perfect time to revamp your beauty regime, switch up your techniques, or change that overall look—and perhaps your outlook on health and wellness too. Where to begin? Start by reminding yourself that beauty starts from within; with thoughts, nutrition, environment and personal care. The state of your health impacts the way you reveal yourself to the world. Take care of yourself and soon you’ll discover how you glow from the inside out. Your beauty comes from a balance of interconnectedness with your health, spirituality, and emotional condition. It brings to mind the concept of “chi.” Chi is life, energy and the force that guides. When you have a strong chi, you feel totally alive, alert and present.

So I say, grab hold of spring, of energy, and of beauty!

Much love,

SUSTAINABILITY

A NEW STAR AMONG VEGAN FOOD Lupines have been a rare and valued cooking ingredient for nutrition-conscious individuals. Now, the seeds of the color-intensive flower are rediscovered by vegans as a substitute for meat, eggs milk and ingredients for cakes, protein shakes and yogurts. Compared to other plants rich of protein such as soja, lupines are easy to grow, and contain one third less fat and carbs but three times more fibers. The plant is free of lactose and gluten, and holds all necessary amino acid and minerals such as magnesia, zinc, calcium, iron and the important vitamin B12, which mainly can be found in animal products. Lupines were first discovered in South America; however, their seeds were given as burial objects for pharaohs for their eternal afterlife. Growers have since developed three forms for consumption by extracting the bitter poisonous substance from the seeds, the sweet white, yellow

and blue lupines. Depending on the final use, lupines are sent through excessive procedures before the flower becomes a viable cooking ingredient. Lupine seeds can be softened in water for a long period of time and grounded to flour, which can be added to food instead of eggs, thanks to a high level of fat. Other products that are made out of lupines are milk, yogurts, ice cream, and even meat substitutes like cutlets and meat cut into stripes. Some stores even carry coffee made out of roasted lupine seeds. There is a downfall, however. People who show allergic reaction when eating peanuts usually experience the same when eating lupine products. One good reason why products that include lupines need to be marked just like any other edibles. Nevertheless, lupines appear to be the future superstars on every vegan's plate.

BLOGGER INTERVIEW MEET

Jordan Landes-Brenman Haute House Flower

by Joyce Darkoh

Jordan Landes-Brenman is a true expert when it comes to fashion and branding. A lifelong lover of all things fashion-related, she has an extensive and successful background representing clients in every facet of the fashion industry. After several years at her previous PR firm, Haute House PR, Jordan quickly rose to the top, serving as second in command to the owner as Director of Product Placement & Publicity overseeing thirty five brands. Since launching her bi-coastal fashion PR agency seven years ago, she has represented a wide range of brands, including women’s luxury and contemporary apparel, accessories, jewelry, beauty, online fashion retailers, retail stores, and beauty salons. Jordan has appeared in a plethora of celebrity trend segments on major TV networks, and she also serves as online style columnist for Ventura Blvd Magazine, and as a contributor for www.StyleMusicTV.com. In July 2013, she successfully launched her personal blog Haute House Flower.

www.hautehouseflower.com social media: @hautehouseflower For PR inquiries email Jordan at jordan@hautehousepr.com

FSHN sat down with Jordan for this interview to get her expertise on fashion, PR and branding. FSHN: Jordan, tell us a bit about your blog, Haute House Flower. What do you usually write about? JL: Haute House Flower is a digital style destination written by a PR expert and digital strategist. Haute House Flower has a focus on fashion, beauty, a bit of lifestyle, and I am also expanding into fashion industry career advice, as a 10-year Fashion PR veteran and agency business owner. FSHN: You also work full time in PR, Digital Strategy and Social Media. What made you start a blog and when did you start blogging on a regular basis? How do you find time for both? JL: I started blogging on a regular basis in October of 2014, however it is a constant balancing act to work full time and blog. Although I remain dedicated and focused on my blog, I am still not able to give my Haute House Flower as much time and attention as I would like. There's a saying that you'll make time for the things that matter most to you, and it's so true. Whether it's the weekend, or an hour here or an hour there, you just make the time, and are happy to do it. FSHN: What are some of the strengths a blogger should have to be or become successful? JL: If it's a fashion blogger; a strong sense of personal style, social-media savvy, strong writing, brand or marketing knowledge, visual aesthetic, and the more they know about photography, and editing, the better!

22

FSHN: Where do you get your inspirations from? JL: Magazines (old and new issues), Instagram is also big source of inspiration, as are other bloggers, and old movies, photographs, and art which I look to for a sartorial edge. FSHN: Networking and collaborations seem to be important tasks for bloggers. What else should a successful blogger put on her or his checklist? JL: They are extremely important, however the foundation for a strong blog and social media presence has to be in place first. This includes consistent, regular social media posting, daily community engagement on all of their social media platforms is extremely important (interacting with comments, likes you receive on your posts), creating beautiful content, and blogging regularly. FSHN: In your opinion, what attracts readers more when browsing through blogs: a good image, the content of a blog, an eye-catching headline, or an interesting blog name? JL: Gorgeous imagery and an eye-catching headline is what captures their attention first. The content and writing is what keeps them. An interesting blog name is important, but is more important for growing awareness on your social media platforms.

FSHN: As a PR expert, what value do bloggers have in the area of brand marketing? JL: Bloggers are the new black! But seriously, digital influencers are now on par with celebrities (and in many cases, have surpassed celebrities) in terms of importance for brands. Not only are bloggers good writers, and extremely talented content creators, they are successful influencers, are incredibly businesssavvy, and are proficient in branding and marketing. While celebrities are many times hired for their personal style and pop culture status, bloggers offer brands a unique platform, in that they are are hired for their talent, branding abilities, social media expertise, in addition to their style and digital following.

FSHN: Is it true that bloggers receive a lot of freebies from brands and companies? Are there any strings attached? JL: It is true, however there are strings attached. Brands are sending these items to you with a hope that you'll take a picture, post and tag their brand on your social media, and/or do a blog post about it. While some brands might not define their ask, that's the purpose. Anything that I receive for free, I only accept if it's something I am organically interested in (and would pay money for anyways). It's important to stick to your personal taste, and say no to collaborations that aren't on brand. If you don't, what value is that offering to your reader?

FSHN: What has been the best collaboration or event you have attended so far? JL: I would have to say that meeting Diane Von Furstenberg in person at a blogger event was a major moment for me. She's been one of my industry icons for as long as I can remember, so getting to spend one-on-one time with her was absolutely incredible!

FSHN:You live in sunny California. What do you do in your spare time? Can you relax when not working or do you constantly search for new outfits or products to blog about? JL: In my spare time, I can be found relaxing with my family, friends, boyfriend (also my photographer!) and rescue maltipoos, Lola and Marcel. :) However, I have to say, I love what I do, and kind of live and breathe blogging in my spare time. To me, brunch with friends is also a fun opportunity to capture quick, beautiful content. I may not do a fullscale photoshoot on every outing (my friends would kill me!) but every time I'm somewhere beautiful or interesting, I can't resist Snapchatting (follow me on Snapchat at: HauteHouseFlowr) or taking photos on my camera for my blog and social media.

FSHN: Where do you see the success and importance of menswear bloggers compared to their female counterpart? JL: I think there is so much room for growth with menswear bloggers. There are a million female bloggers, and a handful of successful male bloggers. I have friends that are male bloggers and they instantly get more attention at events, and online just because it is more rare to be a male blogger who can convey a stylized aesthetic. Male bloggers provide men with something that is so rarely offered to them; an accessible voice that they trust in fashion, grooming, and lifestyle. I can't wait to see how menswear bloggers continue to develop and grow! FSHN: If you were allowed to keep 4 clothing items in your closet, what would they be? JL: 1 Chanel Coat (a classic that never goes out of style, and a college graduation gift from my parents) 2 My boyfriend's late grandmother's beautifully sentimental diamond ring that he gave to me when she passed. 3 My ancient Black Diane Von Furstenberg Wrap Dress (it's perfect for any, and every occasion) 4 The first time I went to NYC for a work trip 8 years ago, I found a pair of killer Alaia nude heels (on sale!) I've worn them countless times, have had them repaired 3 times, and yet they never let me down. They're comfortable and they go with absolutely everything!

FSHN: In your opinion, what are the must-haves for this upcoming summer? JL: We're seeing a resurgence of the 70's, as well as mod nods to the 60's; yet today's take on everything is a bit more modern, easy to wear and elegant. More than anything, the trend is for everyone to embrace their own natural beauty and style, it's less about this season, or this trend, and more about personal style. • A little white dress, and anything lacy and feminine • One piece swimsuits • Nude monochromatic clothing, also monochromatic pastel dressing - this also applies to beauty! • Lace up sandals (a chic take on the gladiator, and much more flattering on everyone's feet!) • Maxi Dresses • Off the shoulder everything! I personally love this trend, it lets you show a little skin, stay cool, and is so elegant, yet is still appropriate for many occasions.

ABLY SPEAKING by Joyce Darkoh

Saving femininity As women more and more enter social environments that are dominated by the men, there seems to have developed an odd image of an independent superwoman who has lost any sense of femininity to compete with her male counterpart. There was a time when women had certain duties, including being obedient, nurturing offspring, and looking desirable. The only task that required managing skills, and no one should ever underestimate this job, was keeping the household running and the family in check. Many of us feel comfortable in this role, and it is absolutely fine; others, however, have been fighting hard to gain recognition and acknowledgment for positions and goals that are still seen as not gender conform. And many have adjusted to the masculinity of the business and somewhat hidden their femininity to increase similarity to their corporate peers and not distract from the importance of their words and actions with feminine eroticism. We do have good public examples, such as Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel. But then there are those like Anna Wintour, a very elegant individual whom I truly admire... even though I find her to be a bit harsh and distant in appearance.

34

And even though creative work fields appear to be more gender blind, it is undeniable that most wellknown designers are men, and only a few women have made it to the top. So, how much femininity does a career allow? I personally believe that women are a perfect addition to male-driven strategies and project planning simply because of our genetically given sense for persuasion, communication and negotiation. We should not change who we are but rather turn our femininity into a valuable gift that can function as a support and a weapon. After all, history and own experiences (I'm sure) has shown that it can be used in various ways in order to achieve personal goals. Therefore, when you leave house today, add something to your wardrobe that makes you feel desirable and irresistible. See how it changes the way things go in your next business interaction. Until next time, Stay FSHNable Joyce

POLITICALLY CORRECT

Beauty Dressing with political panache is a many-faceted process. Though the clothes play a major role, ensuring quality in the full presentation is most effective. Makeup and hairstyles are just as important as clothing when it comes to appearing politically correct. In certain circumstances, one must always appear with hair properly done. Obviously, there is a range of what is acceptable—and a plethora of interpretations to the word “done.” Professionally-styled and self-styled hairdos are both valid options. One must never appear with wet or unfinished-looking hair. For formal occasions, certain styles are less appropriate. A basic ponytails with a synthetic tie is not acceptable, for example. Upswept hair is most often the safest route for black tie. From a practical point of view, upswept hair is convenient because the hair is out of the way for dancing. Makeup is entirely a grey area. However, too much is never a good idea. If one is not being photogra-

Nails: Fingers must always be groomed! Regular maintenance is required. For women, the color of your nails is a personal choice. However, to much is not a good option. One's manicure should complement their lipstick. Rose Abstrait by YSL is a nice base to build from. Found at Saks.com

phed or filmed, there is no need for layers upon layers. I also believe that the purpose of makeup is to extenuate and enhance the face. One should look to improve, not alter, the face. The contoured, extended-lashed, heavy look is unappealing and may cause humiliating situations for the wearer. For instance, when being embraced by someone wearing a crisp white shirt, no one should ever be at risk to leave a mark. Eyelashes seem to be all the rage, and I myself am a fan. If one is in need of lash help, I fully promote that one receives the help they need. However, ensuring that your lashes are applied properly is paramount. There is nothing less appealing than having lashes taper off at the ends. If one is to go the false lash route, they must always be on. There is no off day; it would look incredibly fake if one were to have an inconsistent eyelash game.

Tinted Moisturizer: In today’s world, beauty standards are high. It is perfectly politically correct for gentlemen to apply a light layer of tinted moisturizer. This gives the skin a more wholesome and even look. I have found much success, for a variety of my clients, with Laura Mercier, Tinted Moisturizer. Found at Saks.com

Perfume: It is best for one to have a signature scent, both men and women need a perfume or cologne that suits them and they wear the majority of the time. Light and refreshing, and never too sweet. It is often common to have a day scent and an evening scent.

by George Mickum

Skin Care: The base of beauty is one’s body. Face being the most essential aspect. A beauty regime is key. Replete is superior line that complements every skin type, and every age. Base, and blush will not cover rough skin, and no lipstick will distract from dryness or puck marks. At a young age one must dedicated themselves to moisturizing and cleansing regularly. Hydrating and nourishing the skin is the most important aspect of beauty! Replete is found at Repleteskincare.com

DESIGNER DREAMS

“Since the early 1980’s I’ve had a recurring dream that I’m moving out of my family apartment on Park Avenue. I’ve got to go pack. And I’ve got to go downstairs and go through all of these numerous bins, and time is running out. What does this mean?”

             

Pauline Pitt, Palm Beach, Florida

THE INTERPRETATION

by Lauren Lawrence

In that family homes are sheltering places associated with mother and security, dreaming of moving out reveals insecurity: space is vacated, turned inside out: An upheaval is underway. What is familiar is exchanged for the untried and unknown. There is an innate sense of disruption and an unconscious awareness of the impermanence of thing — a sense of uncertainty and instability. As moving entails going beyond one’s boundaries, moving on in life often necessitates leaving something behind. A sad recognition, this. There is the wish to recoup reminiscences. Because the process of moving churns up nostalgic recollections filed spatially and temporally in the unconscious, there is the desire to pack and reclaim as many memories as possible. It is not surprising, therefore, to dream of going downstairs which symbolizes the wish to enter the world of the unconscious. Whereas sorting through all the bins is a means of self-exploration, the act, in and of itself, reflects the need to recall what was stored in the past. At the same time, one understands the dreamer’s need to journey past her comfort zone. The dream recurs as a nod to this wish to renew oneself and not get bogged down in the quotidian.

DESIGNER INTERVIEW

ALTENDORFER STUDIOS A master tailor and a graphic designer joined forces and launched a project reflecting their personal and experimental take on handcrafted clothing. Acurate tailoring fuses together with both graphical and technical knowledge to create a pure yet strong aesthetic with refined cuts and attention to details.

by Ava Pivot

FSHN: You founded your Label Altendorfer in 2015. Where did you meet? BA: We met each other 2011 while we were both attending a pattern-maker course at the german masterschool for fashion. We immediately found a connection as we are both craftsmen. Lena is a master tailor from the pike. I was restoring vintage cars before I worked in fashion. We liked the idea of mixing different fields and skills and started to think about the future project which became our present. FSHN: What is essential for young fashion brands to be successful? BA: First off, the product must be perfect. Then you need to be a businessman and a workaholic. There are many things coming together. Design ultimately constitutes the minority of our day. But we try to bring the essential things back. In the end you are not only designer but entrepreneur. FSHN: How would you describe your style? BA: Minimalistic, clear, accurate to the details. It is a combination of minimalism and complex constructions. Purity and geometry with fluid lines and classic silhouettes. In order to get the full view and experience of our products, you have to get closer to our garments to see the features. We are both pattern makers, details, textures and fabrics play the first role and we are always inspired by the material. FSHN: What is your approach in fashion? BA: We always sought to make fashion more exclusive and to democratize art, making it accessible for a wider audience. Everything has to be very personal, we want to work closely with friends and artists to create a continual crossover between art and design, which is not available on the mass market, and a way to promote fashion not only in luxury stores but also in Art galleries, Art fairs and museums. The big brands go round in circles in endless repetitions. Our aim is to be quick and individual. We work with local manufacturers to limit the distance between design and production and to provide more room for creative work. Small editions are Individually produced in-house. We define ourselves by the emphasis on tailoring and craftsmanship.

FSHN: What is your strategy to tackle fashion? BA: There must be a perfect product first of all. Functional and wearable but exeptional and individual at the same time. We decided to have two lines that complement each other in a continual crossover between art and design. There is a commercial line and one that is more concept driven and sold in limited editions. This is our way to open fashion to a wider market. FSHN: Do you believe in inspiration? BA: Totally. We are both versatile in our interests. Curious and open minded. If you meet the world with open eyes you will find inspiration everywhere. I think getting inspired should never be a routine, otherwise your not inspired anymore. FSHN: What was the inspiration for your latest collection? BA: We see our brand as an on-going project, it is a continuous development of shapes and pattern that occur naturally. Lines, geometry, fabrics in the end are a product of all the influences we put together in a concept. We don`t work in seasons either, but rather in issues, this feels much more natural and is actually a neccessity that even the big brand started to realize. FSHN: Whats are your next steps? BA: We are looking for more shops and buyers worldwide. The US and especially Asia would be interesting markets as their buyers are much less conservative and more risk taking when it comes to support young fashion brands. FSHN: What are your future plans? BA: Working closer with friends and artists... It's only been one year that we've been working on Alterndorfer Studios and these days more and more new initiatives come up and should be taken. There is so much great energy around us. The big idea is to bring the creatives together and build a community exchanging, helping and expanding a common network. Altendorfer is fashion. Altendorfer Studios a creative hub: artists, designers, craftmen, entrepreneurs, inspired and inspiring people. We are multiple personalities and Berlin is a place to be for creative and artistic spirits.

guide bodies and body shapers

They may look a little like a swimsuit, but they're very different! Bodies help smooth out your stomach, lift your bosom, make your bum look perky and create a smooth silhouette - all in one! They are perfect for wearing under almost any outfit from trousers and tops, to shorts and tanks, to dresses and skirts. Many bodies have integrated underwire bra to offer support, but if you prefer to wear your own, there are cupless styles (torsettes) available that often have matching separates.

torsettes

This style slims the back, and allows the wearer to choose her own bra that will coordinate well with her fashion. When coordinating with a dress, the best torsette silhouettes are the torsette thigh slimmer, torsette bodybriefer and torsette slip. These styles slim the entire back, tummy, hips, waist and midriff. Also, depending on the design of the torsette, a panty may be incorporated into it, thereby preventing VPLs.

corselettes/garter dresses

Corselettes, or garter dresses, are an essential piece of shapewear. They help create a smooth silhouette when worn under dresses and skirts. Most corselettes come with stocking clips to help keep them in place, and many styles are pretty enough to wear on their own in the bedroom

BEAUTY ISSUE 2016

body control dresses

A good body control dress hugs your curves, making them look smooth and toned. If you want shapely thighs, a defined waist and a lifted bust, a control dress under your party dress is the way to go. If possible, get fitted for your shaping dress professionally, and be realistic about what it can do for you. A good shapewear dress will give you a sleek, smooth silhouette, but it won't make you a full dress size smaller.

camisoles

Camisoles help smooth your upper body, flatten your tummy and hide any "love handles". They're more comfortable to wear than a full body control dress that's fitted at the top and flared at the bottom. They also work well for pairing with a show-stopping top, with a pair of trousers, jeans, or a skirt.

shaping shorts/mid-thigh shapers

If you want a smooth line under a slim-fitting skirt or some skinny jeans, shaping shorts and mid-thigh shapers are a good option. They help lift your bum and smooth out your thighs at the same time. You can even get shaping pants that help keep your skin cool, so you don't get all hot and bothered on the dance floor.

Hello Beauties, I love face masks and I use them regularly twice a week, and if needed sometimes even three times. But normally you can use masks anytime and you don't have to wait for special events. I like to put on a mask that moisturizes, cleans, against irritated skin or absorbs oil from skin. Your skin can be different, so just mix and match, like nose and chin clearing mask and the rest of moisturizing masks, just feel your skin and what it needs. MY FAVORITES Skin Ceuticals Clarifying Clay Masque It helps to exfoliate, clear and in the same time calms down the skin. Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2in1 Wash and Mask Is very good for very oily skin, rub gently and leave it for 30 sec. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant oatmeal Mask oatmeal calms down the skin and helps with the redness. La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque Soothing and dehydrating mask. It’s amazing after a long flight or cold during dry winter times. Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask It´s perfect if you want to go out because it gives you a perfect glow skin. Dermalogica Multivitamin Power recovery Masque One of my favorite, the texture is very creamy. It’s perfect if you skin feels tired and old, it has all the vitamins that help to repair your damaged skin. But be careful if you have sensitive skin. Before you buy them do a patch test to test them out, you feel very quick skin reaction since your skin can be allergic to certain ingredients. Stay pretty and natural.

Love, Y vi 72

COVERSTORY

Introducing “Mr Ross”

by Joyce Darkoh

The revolutionary collaboration of model Shaun Ross and German designer Nina Athanasiou. There are only a handful of German fashion designers who have received recognition outside the country border, and Nina Athanasiou is definitely one of them. Born in a small Bavarian city, she soon discovered her creative side and worked as a freelance illustrator. She then collected some entrepreneur experiences as a bar owner until she finally discovered her true passion, fashion.

86

Unlike other German designers, Nina launched her label named after herself in the USA in 2008; since then she has participated at several show cases in Florida and Atlanta, fashion prices like the Emerging Trends Fashion Challenge in London, and shown her exclusive collections with IMTA, Vancouver Fashion Week, and NY Fashion Week. In 2013, she introduced her label to the German audience as part of a Nokia C7 smartphone challenge. Last year, Nina Athanasiou took her brand to another level when she collaborated with her friend and albino model Shaun Ross to collaborate on a complete collection. Both had met in New York back in 2008, when Shaun auditioned for Nina’s show in Brooklyn, and she decided to book him despite everyone’s concerns. They had stayed connected not only due to their shared birthday but also because of a reciprocal respect and admiration for each other’s artistic ways.

The Summer 2016 collection, simply called “Mr. Ross” was presented last September during Berlin Fashion Week at an exclusive art gallery event, and then at NYFW in form of a collection presentation, choreographed and directed by Shaun Ross himself. The collection is entirely inspired by Shaun’s unique features printed on silk shirts, dresses, and tattooed on leather coats, jackets, and bags. All illustrated images showing Shaun in combination with birds are based on Nina’s artistic background, and so is the associated fashion short film called "Aterius", which features her muse in dream-like sequences.

BEAUTY ISSUE 2016

FSHN: Hi, Nina. Tell us a little bit about the idea behind the short film "Aterius", and, how is it related to your SS16 collection inspired by Shaun Ross? ATERIUS is a story about the inner prison in all of us. It’s the inner conflict of self-doubt and the acceptance of our selves. The main character of my film is embodied by Shaun Ross. His inner turmoil is illustrated by alternating scenes between his own prison symbolized by the dark basement and a fantastic parallel world in which he escapes, until he recognizes at the end of this journey his own self-efficacy which gives him the freedom of choice to the desired identity. This vision is underlined by the prints of my collection, of which I have extensively used the image of Shaun Ross. Some of the prints came from collaboration with the Berlin based artist Sven Ballenthin, who created two amazing drawings of Shaun, which are also part of Ballenthin’s art series "identity is a choice". These prints exaggerate the symbolism on top of the fact that the model "is wearing himself".

FSHN: You produced this film yourself, which leads to the question, what do you prefer, doing movies or fashion? That’s hard to decide! I love my art work and I love designing clothes. I admire the whole process from the first idea and inspiration to completing the outfit; and then going through the typical creative cycle over and over again, telling myself ”..this is awesome…this is tricky…. this is bull…I am bull.. oh, this might be good," and so on. Producing videos is a completely different thing. I love the medium and its power. It is so much more powerful as a medium to transfer the feeling and the mood of the clothes. I believe that doing a video helps me to create a better vision of what I’m trying to say. With film you need a whole different set of people and equipment than what you would need for an editorial shoot, for example. It can become really challenging having to connect with so many individuals who are all involved in the project, and all of them play an important role in it.

At our last shoot, the one for "ATERIUS", we had to reschedule everything and change the whole concept last minute. It was a nightmare. Within four to five days, we had to replace all locations and scenes we had originally planned for the dream sequences in the video, which was supposed to be shot in Las Vegas. So, instead of filming in the desert of Nevada, we had to find similar places and settings in and around Munich, Germany and create the same mood… I’d say it was one of the most challenging shootings so far, much harder than shooting “AKUMA” in Tokyo. FSHN: Having shown in Europe and the US, what do you think the main differences are in those fashion markets? I think one of the main differences is the state of mind in both continents. It’s easier to create excitement in the US, in my opinion, as Americans are more open and tolerant when it comes to expressing their feelings and adapting new ideas and trends. But on the other hand, I sometimes feel as if the European market has some sort of higher standards to quality; it looks like it is more sophisticated than in the US from time to time.

FSHN MAGAZINE

FSHN: As an independent designer, what are the biggest challenges you face? The biggest challenge is probably to prevail against the ever growing number of new designers and well-established fashion moguls who have an almost unlimited budget for marketing and advertising at their disposal, and also to find your own niche in between them. A declining economy and the increase of consumerism are further complicating matters. With innumerable discounters flooding the market, and major low-end fashion chains offering counterfeits of the latest designer looks at dumping prices, the general price consciousness has shifted and is now completely imbalanced. At the moment, we face a disposable society that doesn’t place much value on quality but rather on low prices. A garment no longer has to last for a few years since it is trendy for only one season, and will be out of fashion very soon. We have to raise people’s awareness to the fact that extremely low prices are only possible by means of low quality material and mass production under inhumane conditions.

90

FSHN: How hard is it for you to get your work out there? Each collection generates a big challenge starting from the creative process to the realization, choosing and finding the materials, all the way to the logistic expenditure and marketing. And for each collection you have the same hopes - that it stands up to criticism, inspires other people, and that as many people as possible can identify with the pieces so that they desire wearing them, and in doing so, express themselves. For me, the hardest thing is to go through all this while never being sure if it will pay off at the end. FSHN: Where do you get your inspiration from for each collection? Do you follow fashion trends? Do you have a muse for each collection? There is no particular ritual I follow when it comes to collecting ideas; my inspirations are coming rather spontaneous and unplanned. Often, it’s small things in our everyday life that create an idea that rouses to a theme, such as reports, films, photos, or items that my kids drag home. These inspirations often mix with my childhood memories, current preferences or interests; and at times, they reflect concerns and thoughts that currently run through my mind.

Even though I intend to preserve some sort of authenticity in my collection it makes sense that as a fashion designer, I cannot completely free myself from the influence of certain fashion trends. Nevertheless, I try to be as true to myself as possible, meaning that there will not be one piece in my collection that I cannot identify with and that is strictly based on a current fashion trend. Yes, there are muses, just like Shaun Ross was for my last collection. Melanie Gaydos is someone who has quite impressed me, not as a model but most notably as an individual with incredible strength and positive thinking, her inner beauty. Basically, any person that touches or impresses me through whatever does inspire and influence me.

BEAUTY ISSUE 2016

FSHN: Can you describe the person who is wearing Nina Athanasiou? Who are your clients? Their attitudes and lifestyles? I believe, or rather hope that people who like my collection sort of share certain attitudes and characters with me, or have the same train of thought and sense for beauty. They are very aware of themselves, and strong; they practice self-reflection and are free spirits. They choose their wardrobe neither to fit nor to provoke, and they are not judgmental. Instead they pick their clothes to underline who they are and that they stand to it.

FSHN: You have a partner and two children, and during one of your last shows, your children joined you on stage after a successful NYFW presentation. How important is family life for you and how do you manage it next to your busy life as a designer? I often feel as if I live in two worlds at the same time. There is the world in which I’m a mother that checks homework, fixes school lunch, and visits parent – teacher conferences. And then there is my “own” world, my work, my passion, my drive connected with stress, chaos and excitement. It’s really impossible to combine both worlds into one, and very often there is this bitter taste of one side coming too short, let it be my relationship, my children or my work. The truth is that I am still working on some sort of peaceful co-existence between these worlds. One important rule I believe is creating space for set rest periods, not matter how hard this may be at times.

What advice do you have for inspired fashion designers who want to bring out their own collection? The most essential aspect is the unshaken belief in yourself and in your goals. Be prepared to make sacrifices because things will not go smooth all the time; it will cost you a majority of your private life and your undivided attention to fulfill your dreams. I don’t think there is a set recipe for it that guarantees a successful outcome. There were numerous situations, where I underestimated myself and my capability, especially when dealing with marketing and sales related issues. So, it might be wise to have a trustful partner on your side that either has the knowledge or shares his opinion. However, if you are authentic, and you preserve yourself from most influence from outside to follow your goals with a great passion and enthusiasm; and not get discouraged by initial failures then you can create a solid foundation for your successful line. Trust me, there are definitely mistakes that are avoidable; I mean, looking back I know I made quite a few wrong investments, approached things wrong, and other stupid decisions I wish I could revert. But it’s all part of a learning process, so they are, in a way, a necessity.

SKINCARE

REPLETE

NEW SKIN INTELLIGENTLY by ELISABETH THIERIOT

What a wonderful time in life it is when we start planning motherhood and fatherhood.

We are in love, we envision all aspects of timing, the needed space for the baby, we even worry which schools they will go to before they are born. We can see it all in colors for the boy or girl anticipating the moment they will arrive. I recall that so vividly. Then I recall how my husband and I juiced before conceiving to assure that our offspring would be healthy in body and mind. We changed our skincare to more natural type until even that did not work, as I learned my skin changed with hormones and I could not be around smells or apply anything with typical "moisturizer". My world has changed for the better, thanks to my upcoming children. The pregnancy is time of most awareness as to how very much everything we do affects us, and the unborn child. We are concerned about changes happening to our body- our size, the shape, and how are we going to look after the baby is born. Then there is the concern about nutrition for the baby and what is penetrating the womb when it comes to quality and content of the products we use during time of pregnancy and nursing. All of these aspects create transition for us and our world, which will never be the same again. It feels as if the first three months never end after we conceive and after we give birth, until there is sleep.

Following that, babies start to crawl and develop curiosity that matches a scientist. They love opening things building things, breaking things and beraking into things. All is part of development and each stage is transition into another stage of development, into what eventually will become a fully-grown human who never stops learning. This is where we come to learn, that now we are at a new stage of things changing rapidly and entering a "new era of conscious living in a green world." We want to use less packaging and more concentrates to limit the size of landfills. We want to bring home products that are safe for our children to be inquisitive toddlers without risking their life when they get into stuff. Safe life at home and safe life with what we leave behind in environment. Replete Skincare(TM) was built to give you peace of mind, and it is safe enough for you and your baby.

MONTHLY MENSWEAR

Men and Fashion:

the revolutionary change by Joyce Darkoh

Once upon a time, people believed that menswear fashion would only bloom in fashion induced cities like New York. “For a long time, Manhattan was the epicenter of all creative thought," says Josh Peskowitz," but now I feel like that’s changed.” Peskowitz is the former men’s fashion director of Bloomingdale’s, who opened Magasin, the first independent retail store for menswear in LA, which opened on February 20th. This month we asked influencer and social media expert Dathias Godfrey, who recently moved from New York to Los Angeles about his styling and spending habits when it comes to fashion.

FSHN: How important is fashion / “dress to impress” to you? DG: It's very important. The way you put yourself together reflects how you are as a person and the atmosphere you bring. FSHN: Describe your favorite outfit. RB: Leather moto jacket, white shirt, ripped skinny black jeans, and Chelsea boots.

122

FSHN: How much money do you spend on clothes per month in average? RB: I would say $200. I like to dress with a budget. Dathias Godfrey, Los Angeles

Quartier 206 a touch of Paris in Berlin When in Berlin for shopping, a visit in the Quartier 206 is definitely a must. The luxury department store built in Art Deco style is located on Berlin’s renowned Friedrichstrasse in Berlin-Mitte, the former eastern part of the city. International brands such as Etro, and Bally, as well as high-end brands like Umasan and Paul Davis present their collection in exclusive boutiques. The architecture of the whole mall is alone, worth a stop. Developed by architects Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners, who also designed the famous Louvre Pyramid in Paris, the building is equipped with a beautiful airy atrium and an elegant black and white mosaic floor. Each floor is connected by escalators and marble steps designed by Annamaria Jagdfeld leading all the way down to the beige and brown marble floor in the basement. In 2012, the Quartier 206 underwent a drastic change to overcome financial difficulties due to the global financial crisis. Since then, the mall has developed its own modern luxurious flair offering trending brands and labels an exquisite location to also attract a new generation of consumers. The essence of Q206 next to its selected offer of cafés, juice shops, and eateries, is its own fashion department store, which sells high-end labels, accessories and cosmetics over two floors. And for those who would like to continue shopping – a small tunnel in the basement leads right into the renowned store Lafayette.

LOVE

Love in the Era of Disposability by Jason Martineau

It’s 2016. An entire portion of the collective awareness has now been relegated to cyberspace – a place in which we have the power to procure and edit our outward-facing selves. A place where we can instantly discover the thoughts, opinions, hopes, dreams, favorite pets and foods and places and music and everything of people around the world. Ideas rendered in the form of disembodied text on the backlit pages of websites and apps are viewed on computers and mobile devices. Millions of them. And billions of them. And there we are, tapping and typing, social media having been a big initial push into this domain. Granted we were doing such things prior to the internet, but it was much slower, and certainly we’ve never had such a scale of immediacy and world reach as we do now Next came the surge of interest in chat applications. Insta-this and Snap-that, and WeChat and iChat and uChat and what are we all chatting about? More to the point, there are these people, all there in our pockets, or on our desk, or on our laps, waiting, at any time, to listen to us, be listened to, and to be broadcasted to. Such an immense diversity and availability of attention. How are we ever going to value the attention and interaction of one special person the same way again? Hasn’t this all diluted the power of the presence of a person? Next we can reflect upon online dating – which is more or less an extension of social media, and has adopted many of its characteristics. On one day, you might be on Amazon or eBay, browsing through the endless tables of pictures of goods, reading their summaries, wondering if they have the value they claim to have, and if you will order one. Then you hit “next” and see another… then another. On another day, you might be on match.com, okcupid, or any of a large number of these services. Some of them are mobile-only, so the concept has varied and veered away from tables and grids, however the mentality of simply swiping someone away, or just hitting “next” or "no thanks" has something perhaps quite devaluating inside. People… are they no different from products?

144

Imagine you meet someone in a bar. You might not know their age exactly, perhaps you can make a rough estimate, but you’re not always sure. You probably don’t know what they do for a living, what their favorite things to do might be, nor would you have any idea of who or what they were looking for. At best you might be able to figure out something about their financial status based upon how they’re dressed (or not), but otherwise all you have is a living, breathing person over there, moving around, looking this way and that, making facial expressions as they talk, and so on. They are looking at you, and they are smiling. Perhaps you will have a conversation. Imagine after 20 minutes of conversation you determine that you might not be compatible for whatever reasons, and so you realize the time, and thank them for the exchange, and excuse yourself while wishing them well. Now imagine you see someone on a dating site or in an app. You know their age, exactly (assuming they are telling the truth). You probably can read about what they do for a living because they wrote it on their profile. You know what are their favorite things to do, and you know what they are looking for – they’ve spelled all of this out. You do not have a living, breathing person over there. You have photos. Static photos. You do not even know if they are current, or from last year, or the last decade. You like how they look in the photos, so you start corresponding. You cannot see their facial expressions as you read what they write, nor their body language, nothing. Just words on a screen, parsed and displayed in some generic, neutralized sans-serif typeface – the same as your own words to them. This is a conversation. Maybe they make you smile. Perhaps you will have a phone conversation. Imagine that, after that, you plan to meet, and after a few days, you determine that you might not be compatible for whatever reasons, and so you just write it to them. “Sorry, I’ve changed my mind.” You do not even meet, at all, ever. Perhaps you’ve met someone else?


We are increasingly replacing the former approach with the latter. But here is the most glaring difference between these two scenarios – in the first case, when you made a final assessment about the person, it was based upon a real-world, live interaction, with all of the elements in place: a living, breathing, and animated personality. You can hear a voice, see a smile, detect a faint aroma of them, everything. In the second case, when you made a final assessment, it was largely based on static words and images, on a glowing screen. You never even got to meet the person you were at first interested in, but then decided you were no longer interested in. So what do you do? You tell them “no thanks.” You hit "next." You hit "delete." You close the window. Throw them away. You swipe onward. Imagine if people did that to each other in real life, in just that way. Deep down we know that products displayed on a grid have no feelings, and do not take it personally if we choose not to buy them, or download, or stream. We don’t even have to wonder about it. And we’ve been using such websites for many years now. On

a dating site, the appearance is remarkably similar – and I wager that we do the very same thing, there. We are all just products. Someone can check us out for a while, and, before even having had the opportunity to meet us, they throw us away, as if they had met us. The difference is that we’ve interacted with them, but we never met them. We don’t interact with products. And online, we never see the products, live. We might have even interacted with a person enough times to seem as though it was worth meeting. But then, that last-minute twitch… that feeling of “something better”…There must always be something, or someone, better, right? Just think of all those thousands or millions of people in our pockets, who we also may not know, and might not ever meet… those we can browse through endlessly. Wow, you can see more people in one night than 10 nights at bars or clubs… but, are we really saving time, or are we, perhaps, losing connection? In this era of disposability, are we treating people like products? And most importantly: do you want to be a product, too?

MODEL OF THE MONTH

Nick Flatt stands out from other models. His distinctive facial features are a dream come true for any fashion photographer who wants to give his pictures a deeper message. It then makes sense that he jumpstarted his modeling career within a relatively short time. Nick was born and raised in Cologne, Germany on February 23, 1992. He considered modeling professionally in 2014 after being discovered by a scout while walking the streets. After a few test shoots he gave up his job in insurance and investment consulting and quickly signed with IMG Models New York and London, I love Models Milan and Core Artist Management Berlin. During his visit in Berlin to shoot with the renowned fashion photographer Ava Pivot, we had the opportunity to sit down with Nick and do this interview FSHN: Nick, thank you for taking the time out for this interview. You started modeling two years ago. Tell us a bit about how it all started. NF: To be honest, it has never occurred to me that I had the potential to become a model. And then this model scout, Eva Gรถdel from Tomorrow Is Another Day, approached me in a small Thai restaurant and asked me if I would be interested in modeling. A few days later I signed up with her agency. At this time I was still working as a investment consultant and no sense for modeling and fashion at all. And a few months later I started to enjoy working in this field, and by now I truly love standing in front of the camera. FSHN: What are you doing professionally next to modeling? NF: As I had mentioned before, I was working as an investment advisor; I was trained to be a merchant for insurance and finances. Nowadays, I rent out apartments. FSHN: How do you stay in shape? Are you eating healthy or do you snack once in a while? NF: Well, I do eat a lot of fruits, and salad at times, which keeps me quite fit. But to be honest, I have to eat as many cheeseburgers. FSHN: You stated that you love standing in front of the camera, what exactly are you enjoying so much? What were some of the fun moments you experienced? NF: The most fun are the people that you meet while work as a model, and the opportunities it provides. I mean, you see all these model casting shows on TV and how they cast potential models that cause drama to attract viewers but the reality is completely different. I have met so many fellow models that were absolutely laidback and easy to work with.

158

My first runway show was at an event called Top Hair and for L'Oreal at the beginning of 2015. I still remember how nervous I was knowing that I would have to step out into an audience of more than 3000 people. Another model showed me how to walk the runway shortly before the show. In 2015, I was walking for GAs, ICEBERG and Just Cavalli. And after being interviewed by Male Model Magazine, a model scout from New York contacted me. He was the one who got me signed with IMG Models NY and London, I Love Models Milan and Core Management in Hamburg. It's just amazing how many people I have met in this short amount of time. FSHN: What does beauty mean to you? NF: Beauty comes from within, they say, and it is so very true. It is your character that puts the beauty to your outer skin. FSHN: And what is the most beautiful thing on earth for you? NF: Oh, definitely my little sisters. FSHN: So what is next for the model Nick Flatt? NF: I am planning to go to London, Milan and New York for a few months, just to work on my portfolio and work as a model full time. FSHN: What advice do you have for fellow models? NF: Stay as you are! Show true emotions in front of the camera instead of simply posing. It will turn you into any photographer's darling.

STRONG MAN

MAËL – THE SCENT OF MEN the one behind

MARKUS HOHMANN

FSHN: FSHN - Magazine has already featured MAËL – THE SCENT OF MEN in a previous issue. For our series called “Strong Men," we would like to learn more about the man behind this fragrance. Could you tell us a little more about yourself? MH: Yes, it’s quite the adventurous story. I grew up in the south of Germany, with the beautiful backdrop of Bavaria’s mountains and lakes. I went on to study architecture in Munich and was impressed by the architectural diversity and richness of the city. The Bavarian capital offered a wealth of designs which sparked my second passion – my love for architectural photography. Since childhood, another passion of mine has been sports and I tried out for various different types: mountain biking, skiing, tennis, football, track and field, ice hockey, water-skiing, wake-boarding and snowboarding. In 2000 I discovered my fascination with kite surfing. During a holiday, I observed kite surfers and found myself impressed by this sport, even though it was still widely unknown in Germany. I made my first experiences – bruises included – with a stunt kite.

162

Excitement quickly turned into a passion and finally success. I took on this sport at a semi-professional level and quickly found sponsors and agents who committed me to become a sports model. I travelled almost all continents with my kite board and of course, my camera joined me on every journey! A serious injury to my cervical spine put my professional sporting career on hold for a few years. Fortunately, I had been able to hang on to good friendships and contacts and was able to form part of the team at the architectural firm again. And next to my passion for sports and architecture, there’s of course also the greatest love of my life – my family!


BEAUTY ISSUE 2016

FSHN: That’s a great balancing act between your professional life, sports and your family. How did you get into the idea of developing your own perfume, on top of everything else? MH: The idea arose while I was kite surfing in the south of Italy. The weather conditions were bad over a period of several days, so we had infinite time to dedicate ourselves to other creative outlets. This is when the idea took shape to develop a fragrance for men that captures the activity, vivacity and fascination of surfing. The first creation wasn’t very successful: it featured the name “sand” and literally smelled like the word too – we didn’t really find it all too exciting. But we couldn’t get the idea out of our heads so we put all our enthusiasm and passion into the fragrance until finally, at the beginning of 2010, the MAËL – SCENT OF MEN was born. Initially we only produced a small amount as a surprise gift for our friends and acquaintances. The next step was to secure the trademark rights and organize the logistics for the ingredients and packaging. This is how MAËL – SCENT OF MEN started its successful journey – by now, throughout the whole world.

FSHN | 163


FSHN MAGAZINE

FSHN: What are the future plans for MAËL– THE SCENT OF MEN? MH: As an exclusive fragrance for the modern man, MAËL –SCENT OF MEN is perfect and classic within itself. The name MAËL is Celtic and is unisex. It means prince and/or princess and therefore stands for the manly as well as the womanly attractiveness, strength and energy. That’s why we are currently designing the female counterpart MAËL – SCENT OF WOMEN, with which we hope to enchant on the same level. Designing fragrances has led us into an exciting and fascinating world of scents and essences – let us surprise you!

164


BEAUTY ISSUE 2016

FSHN: What is your personal assessment as to what constitutes an attractive man, and how he can find his matching scent? MH: Manly attractiveness is not limited to bodily attributes like a toned body, shining eyes or a charming smile. More than anything, a man’s inner values and qualities contribute to winning charisma. You don’t learn this at the gym but at the school of life. Inner strength paired with a sense of humour, open-mindedness and kindness achieve an appeal that can make a man incredibly attractive. A truly strong man knows who he is and what he wants, and knows the difference between confidence and arrogance. He is aware of his qualities but does not need to prove them.

A fragrance mirrors one's personality and relationship to one’s self similarly to a fashion item. Seeing as a perfume is something very personal, everyone has to find their own. Basically, you can’t be attractive to everyone, and finding your own, individual scent is an exciting challenge. On top of that, perfume establishes its own scent in merging with the personal body odour of the person wearing it. The perfect scent is a valuable accessory for everyday life: a customdesigned body-dress, an invisible protective shield, a secret weapon!

FSHN | 165


FSHN MAGAZINE

FSHN: The perfume market is highly competitive and becoming successful within the trade is definitely challenging. What convinced you, that this business idea would be successful? MH: Our entire philosophy! Our motto is quality and exclusivity and this concept relates not only to the scent but the entire manufacturing process. There are plenty of male perfumes and, driven by our passion for the extraordinary, we wanted to create a special fragrance that combines the modern man’s range of expressions in one essence. A statement for the modern man – not with words, but with the most immediate, human sensory perception: the smell. We rely on premium quality from the perfume mecca that is the south of France, one hundred percent. This is where MAËL is manufactured according to our design specifications, using exquisite ingredients such as wild mint, grapefruit, orange, cardamom and black pepper. MAËL is not a factory or firm that sets out to mass produce; it’s a small perfume manufactory. We deliberately decided against suppliers from Asia. We produce lovingly by hand and each Eau de Parfum is unique. MAËL stands for individuality and class and we will always remain an exclusive manufactory that moves outside of the mainstream and produces in limited editions. We follow our philosophy in an uncompromising and methodical manner, and our exclusive clientele appreciates this, seeing as we share our love for the extraordinary in common. Our attention to uniqueness is also reflected in the design. Unlike most male perfume bottles, ours is not made of glass but aluminium, in order to match the sporty character. This has the advantage, that you can easily carry the scent in your sports bag without running the risk of the bottle breaking. All materials are made from environmentally friendly components. Even in terms of service, our motto is “exclusivity”: We are available to our clients 24/7 and for the “MAËL 2Go Limited Edition," we even offer an unconditional money-back guarantee, should the fragrance not match the equivalent of the customer’s expectations. As of yet, no one has claimed this warranty, which shows us that we have done a good job with our creations.

I was very kindly flown out to Berlin, Germany for a photo shoot with Ava Pivot for FSHN Magazine, and having been to Berlin when I was a kid I was looking forward to going again to really be able to take in the city this time. In between shooting, I was taken to see some of the historical landmarks in the city including the German parliament area and the Brandenburg Gate, where we in fact shot a couple little pieces there, which was very cool. I really enjoyed the vibe around the Brandenburg Gate; so many people just wanting to take in the amazing landmark. I was also taken to one of the most expensive streets and malls in Berlin, the Quartier 206, full of luxury shops and has an incredible interior design. Having only spent less than twelve hours in Berlin I saw so much and learned a lot, too. I will definitely be back - but hopefully for a bit longer this time to enjoy much more of the city. by CHEZ RUST

CELEBRITY FEATURE

Chris Pang His Breakthrough in Acting & How Bruce Lee Might’ve Been the Key to his Career As summer is slyly making its way, we all just want to kick up our feet and watch some Netflix, am I right? And that is exactly what we should be doing to be blown away from Chris Pang, an up and coming actor who most would recognize as “Lee” from the film Tomorrow When the War Began back in 2010, or in his newest Netflix movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny. The movie is a sequel to the 2000 film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon that stars Donnie Yen, Michelle Yeoh, Glee’s Henry Shum, Jr., and Jason Scott Lee, to name a few. Offered in both Chinese and English languages, the martial-arts film carries on with the movie by bringing back renowned warrior Yu Shu-Lien out of retirement to keep the legendary Green Destiny sword away from a villainous warlord. The film has caught the attention of casting directors and has drastically changed Pang’s acting career in the best way. “I was just chatting to a friend about this the other day - being on the radar to be specifically tapped for different roles rather than just part of a world-wide cattle call of actors in a casting is a major step and I feel very privileged to have made it to where I am,” says the son of two martial arts instructors. But before Pang was cast as the role of “Flying Blade", he already had his own connection to the film as it was the first movie that welcomed him to the United States from his homeland of Australia.

The knack for producing helped Chris in the long-run of his career and gave him a jump start to building his resume as he cast himself in his roles. “I’ve always liked telling stories and I suppose that helps, but my producing may have come out of a necessity,” says the triple threat. “As an actor (and especially an ethnic actor in Australia) you kind of depend on some production that comes along looking for someone who is your age and sounds and looks exactly like you to cast in their project.”

“Another thing I can’t get past is being a part of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny,” continued Chris. “The first film was such a monumental piece and it was truly special for me – it was the first film I saw in the cinema that was not only not in English, but in a language that I understood as well!  Also, another absolute career highlight was when Michelle Yeoh blew a kiss at me.” Besides acting, Chris has also found a passion in producing. One of his projects includes the movie Citizen Jia Li.

roles for myself.”

“For me that meant a lot of sitting around and waiting and after a while I started getting work and realized that we still do a lot of sitting around and waiting on set, there’s a big difference between sitting and waiting on the job and sitting and waiting for a job! So I started developing my own projects in the meantime to occupy myself and create

Flashback to his childhood in Australia, Pang says he and his mum always playfully made up their own “epic” movies and acted them out. (How cute!) Those moments are what Chris describes as his inspiration to breakthrough into acting.


BEAUTY ISSUE 2016

Pang also recalls a time in his life that he will never forget and might actually be the reason he is in a martial-arts film! “When I was in Grade 2, my best friend at the time was a white kid named Lee,” began the Australian. “One time at lunch he looked at me and said, ‘You know you look a lot like Bruce Lee?’” “At the time it was the biggest compliment anyone could have given me but when I look back on it now, I was just a round faced 7-year-old Asian kid and that comment was actually kind of racist.” “However, Lee may have been onto something because I found out that Bruce Lee and my grandmother were from the same village and in fact, my grandmother was his dad’s cousin. I’m terrible at working out relations so I can’t give you the exact lineage, but essentially, I’m related to Bruce Lee!” Bruce Lee must have some strong genes considering Pang is practically following his footsteps! Chris doesn’t let the star power get the best of him as he still perceives acting as a way of growing upsomething he accepts he is still doing. “When you are young, you don’t make money so you make do with what you’re given but you are still happy and thankful for it.  When you grow up however, you start earning money and that is when you can buy whatever you want and enjoy the bigger things in life.” “In ten years, I hope I’m at the point where as an actor I can do whatever I want and enjoy being a part of those projects that I couldn’t when I was a younger, smaller toddler actor!” And we can’t wait to see what you have accomplished in those ten years ahead, Chris! In the meantime, catch a glimpse of the 2016 version of Bruce Lee in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny on Netflix and select IMAX theaters and keep refreshing the video-streaming site to see Pang in another Netflix production, Marco Polo- coming soon!

ACTOR SPOTLIGHT

Bruno Gunn

R

ecognized most for his role as Brutus in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Bruno Gunn is taking advantage of the level of star power he’s gained since the premiere of the blockbuster and, should I say is becoming “man on fire."

With The Hunger Games being the first movie Gunn has gone into where the die-hard fans were already there and the popularity of it was at its peak, Gunn wasn’t ready for the madness of it all. In fact, the film was really different from anything he’s done.

“The sheer size and scope of the movie - from production, to promotion to the all-star cast [was different from other projects],” says Bruno. “Mostly though, it was the fans. I owe them a lot. They are uncharacteristically loyal. They show up. Period. STILL support me and my projects. A lot of gratitude for them.” Known for his thrilling action scenes, Gunn knew he’d have to be in his best shape to keep up with the cast, and for the big-screen. “When you find out you're going to be 52 feet tall on IMAX, you take your training and nutrition seriously.” “We filmed the jungle scenes in the rainforests of Hawaii. In the heart of the jungle, we climbed in and out of massive ravines surrounded by ginormous trees and waterfalls. It was wet, muddy and exhilarating.” Who says life has to be all work and no play? Coming up for the actor are a couple of movie roles with linked adaptations, like Officer Downe, a graphic-novel composition, and Westworld, a revamped movie of Michael Crichton’s classic sci-fi film. “Better than any DC or Marvel film," declares the coproducer of OD, Mark Neveldine. In regards to the next Deadpool, this movie will be it. “It’s a work of art. Pick up a brush. Dip it in Sin City, Rob Zombie’s “‘Rejects’, Nolan’s ‘Batman’. Take hand and smear, smash (punch!) together over a Marvel canvas,” says Bruno. “It’s none of those things, but exists in a context of those hues. They're the only colors we currently have to paint with. ‘OD’ will be a NEW color for the crayon box.” Slipknot’s cofounder Shawn Crahan’s debut film stars Kim Coates as Officer Downe, who is portrayed as a Los Angeles supercop who is killed in the line of duty but is constantly brought back to life to serve satisfying, merciless justice. Gunn plays “Officer Fritch,” who’s assigned to watch after Downe. “Mark (‘Ghost Rider 2’, ‘Crank’) knows how to increase audience blood pressure. That said, after filming I watched Slipknot play to 15,000 people! Talk about blood pressure rising!” says Bruno. “Shawn took a break from music only to make a film that screams a song in images. His vision was so fresh - not jaded by the industry or scared to try new things.” “Mark was imperative to the translation. He’s an actor, writer and director. A fantastical, exciting darkness

was born from both minds. They were made to create this film.” As for the loyalty to the novel, fans won’t have to be worried one bit. “We maintained a strong loyalty. That also means the visuals have to translate. Was accomplished using innovative techniques producing some of the most interesting, never-before-seen imagery.” Westworld was a classic film in its time and now fans of the vintage movie will get to experience it all over again in a television series on HBO! Originally written by Michael Crichton, Westworld is inspired by the 1973 film that was about a futuristic theme park populated by artificial people. “Adaptations can be challenging. Sometimes content requires loyalty to the OG, but there are times when adaptations allow for liberties. I’m excited to see how it compares! I’ll be watching with everyone else,” shares the lawman turned outlaw. Taking on another hardcore character, Bruno plays a wanted man named “Walrus” who thinks he runs the town in his first period piece. (But when you’ve been climbing over rocks and dodging spears in The Hunger Games, who blames you for feeling like you can rule a small western town?) Being a day-one fan, Bruno had fun being a part of the series and is excited for everyone to take another ride into Westworld. “I know what excited ME - those sets, the details! You look around and forget where you are. Acting is a small part of creating a believable, fictional world.” “Scenery. Style. The phenomenal, Ane Crabtree (costume designer) gave voices to our characters through wardrobe.” Gunn actually never had this life-long interest in acting like most actors had. Never starred in commercials as a baby promoting diapers or Band-Aid, but instead his introduction to the industry began in New York City as an advertising executive. “I was working in New York City in the mid-90’s when a friend suggested I should try acting,” said Bruno. “Interested by his encouragement, I began a drama class. Immediately I knew: This is for me. Proceeded to get myself fired from said ad job and have never looked back.” Always convinced with every role Gunn takes on, we’re glad you never looked back either, Bruno. As Suzanne Collins says in The Hunger Games, “A spark could be enough to set them ablaze.”

BEAUTY ISSUE 2016

MOUNT ETNA - EXPLORING THE EAST COAST OF SICILY Sicily is a beautiful island located in the central Mediterranean, right off the toe of the boot of Italy. It is home to heavenly beaches, coasts filled with orange and lemon orchards, ancient landscapes and majestic mountains. Its most prominent landmark is Europe's greatest natural wonder, Mount Etna, the second tallest volcano that is still active. Officially, Sicily is part of Italy, but if you ask its habitants then they will proudly tell you that they are Sicilian. After going through

three Phoenician, multiple Greek colonies and Norman conquests, and ending up receiving social status as an autonomous region of Italy, there is little left that reminds of a typical Italian characteristics starting from the appearances of the people to developing their own language. Sicily has a roughly triangular shape, earning it the name Trinacria, which can be found on souvenirs and as art all over the island. The capital, Palermo, is situated in the northwest of the island right by the Gulf of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The city, which is over 2,700 years old, is noted for its history, culture, architecture and gastronomy. The Eastern part of Sicily is probably the most visited part of the island because of its famous touristic spots. Taormina, a beautiful town up on a mountain overlooking the water has been a tourist destination since the 19th century. An aerial tramway on the Ionian sea serves as adventurous alternative to the highways from Messina to access its beaches. The human presence here is an ancient one, dating at least from the Bronze Age. It was the Greeks who began complete colonization, linked to their establishment of Taormina. That's when the first fortresses were constructed. But by far the most remarkable monument remaining at Taormina is the Ancient theatre, which is one of the most celebrated ruins in Sicily, on account both of its remarkable preservation and its beautiful location.

One of Sicily's most popular attractions, the nearby town of Castelmola is rarely visited by non-Sicilians though it overlooks Taormina. On a clear day you can see beyond the Etna region to Siracusa and Augusta farther down the Ionian coast, beyond Catania. The sanctuary of the Madonna della Rocca, locally famous for its annual procession descending down steps to Taormina, offers some fantastic views. Castelmola is also known for its restaurants, bars and pizzerias. Smaller village located underneath the vulcano such as Fiumefreddo, Piedimonte, and Castiglione are also beautiful destinations, and worth a walk through the old streets that seem to be from ancient time. Prior to the early 1970s, Giardini Naxos was a quiet fishing village. Now it is a tourist destination, its attractions including beaches, the panoramic view of the bay and surrounding hills, and its small fishing port. It attracts foreign visitors and Italians, mainly those who own summer residences in the commune. Tourist agencies offer excursions to the Mount Etna, Taormina and Syracuse, a beautiful Mediterranian town in the southeast, as well as to Catania, and Catania-Fontanarossa Airport, the international airport located on the east coast.

OK E EC HO BEE

HAS EPIC 1ST YEAR WITH A SOLD OUT CROWD & PERFECT WEATHER… by Chayan Bruni

Florida has been ripe for some time for a new multi-genre music festival and many have tried and failed along the way, but that has all changed as South Floridians were recently blessed with its first live-in music utopia as The Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival roared into town. Its inaugural 4-day debut kicked off Thursday March 3rd to an eager sold-out crowd who came together for music, camping, dance parties and more on an anticipated new festival site that was nothing less spectacular. Local act, “The Miami Beach High School’s Jazz band,” kicked off the festivities as fans were ushered in and from there the music and energy never stopped. Throughout the four days, music fans were entertained by some of the biggest artists and DJs in the world. Main stages, cleverly named "Be, Here and Now", amassed the crowds by staying true to their festival predecessors hosting an open genre lineup, boasting superstar acts such as the legendary Led Zeppelin singer, Robert Plant and Bassnectar, as well as Grammy nominated artists Kendrick Lamar, Mumford and Sons, Skrillex, and Miguel to name a few. Once the mainstream attractions were put to rest, the Jungle 51 forest stage kept the music alive with late night dance parties. Throughout the night, sounds continued pouring out of the crashed UFO stage deep in the woodland area surrounding the 800-acre beautiful festival site. The intergalactic themed stage brought out the sounds from the underground with artist duo Detroit Legacy collaborating to spin cult classics until sunrise. Although Jungle 51 wasn’t commercially recognized by all, it did bring many acts that Florida had never seen amidst a genre that is lesser known and helped expose the music and dance scene to new fans.

BEAUTY ISSUE 2016

The highlight of Okeechobee came not only from the blend of music and its unique location but from the coordination of group events. The mornings played host to yoga and group meditations held by the Followers of Light, a spiritual group focused on enlightenment through consumption of chakra releasing teas. They truly offered festival goers a sense of community with everything from tea to free Thai massages throughout the festival. Once fans were properly relaxed, newly formed groups of fans would find themselves sunbathing and swimming, while enjoying the aqua festivities on Okeechobee’s very own custom beach, which was built on a fragment of the local lake that gave name to the actual festival. It was a tropical haven from sunrise to sunset with great grooves pulsating from the beach stage and leaving fans with a feeling of an Island paradise. One of the biggest surprises was the lack of technological use, granted by the festivals secluded location, as no-one had cell service and for many that turned out to be a rewarding experience. You would see people actually living within the moment rather than digitally and more in tune with nature, the music and the community spirit with lots of human interaction and quality time spent socializing. All in all, the festival’s 1st year was a success. Safety was well managed, the acts came together seamlessly and the location was prime - The verdict, Okeechobee Festival is here to stay and South Florida couldn’t be happier!

Oscar de la Renta: The Retrospective WORLD PREMIERE

March 12 – May 30, 2016 | de Young SAN FRANCISCO — The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are pleased to present the world premiere retrospective of Oscar de la Renta’s work – the first major survey celebrating the life and career of one of fashion’s most influential designers. The exhibition is organized in close collaboration with the House of Oscar de la Renta and the designer’s family, and is curated by André Leon Talley, former American editor-at-large for Vogue and a lifelong friend of de la Renta. Included are more than 130 ensembles produced over five decades. These garments are organized into several thematic sections: early work; Spanish, Eastern, Russian and garden influences; daywear and eveningwear; and ball gowns and red carpet ensembles. The presentation traces the rise of de la Renta’s career in Spain, where he gained his first commissions; his formative years spent in the world’s most iconic fashion houses; and his eventual role as a designer for many of the most influential and celebrated personalities of the 20th and 21st centuries. “I am honored and excited to be the curator of the definitive Oscar de la Renta retrospective exhibition at the de Young museum,” said André Leon Talley. “This privilege is exceedingly important for me after years of close friendship with Oscar, as well as a strong working relationship during my life at Vogue. My goal is to highlight the extraordinary depth of Oscar’s creative aesthetic from his earliest designs for Jane Derby throughout the five decades of his remarkable career.” “Both our company and our family are proud that the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are organizing the first full-scale retrospective of Oscar’s work,” said Alex Bolen, CEO of Oscar de la Renta. “The Museums’ outstanding collections, augmented by open access to our archives, all viewed through the curatorial eye of Oscar’s dear friend André Leon Talley, will convey well the unique artistry that Oscar brought to the world of fashion.” Ensembles in the exhibition will be drawn from the designer’s personal collection, the archives of the House of Balmain, public and private collections from around the world and the Fine Arts Museums’ costume collection. Viewers will see gowns worn by dignitaries and celebrities that include former First Lady Laura Bush, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss, Nicki Minaj, Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Rihanna and Amy Adams. "I am proud that the Fine Arts Museums can present this comprehensive collection of Oscar de la Renta's work,” said Diane B. Wilsey, president of the Board of Trustees of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. “He was an inspired designer who was a longtime personal friend and was considered by so many to be the consummate gentleman.” Oscar de le Renta: The Retrospective continues the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s commitment to fashion as art. Previous costume exhibitions include Vivienne Westwood: 36 Years in Fashion (2007), Yves Saint Laurent (2008–2009), Balenciaga and Spain (2011), The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk (2012) and most recently High Style: The Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection (2015).

About the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, comprising the de Young in Golden Gate Park and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park, are the largest public arts institution in San Francisco. The de Young originated from the 1894 California Midwinter International Exposition in Golden Gate Park and was established as the Memorial Museum in 1895. It was later renamed in honor of Michael H. de Young, who spearheaded its creation. The present copper-clad landmark building, designed by Herzog and de Meuron, opened in October 2005. It holds the institution’s significant collections of American painting, sculpture, and decorative arts from the 17th to the 21st centuries; art from Africa,

Oceania, and the Americas; costume and textile arts; and international modern and contemporary art. The Legion of Honor was inspired by the French pavilion at San Francisco’s Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915 and, like that structure, was modeled after the neoclassical Palais de la Légion d’Honneur, in Paris. The museum, designed by George Applegarth, opened in 1924 on a bluff in Lincoln Park overlooking the Golden Gate. Its holdings span 4,000 years and include European painting, sculpture, and decorative arts; ancient art from the Mediterranean basin; and the largest collection of works on paper in the American West.

Hello everyone. 1st quarter of the year is past and we're seeing more and more great events and concerts happening already as artists young and old are realizing the power of touring and playing festivals. Check out these new releases by M83, Bon Jovi, Explosions In The Sky, Deftones, Aurora, Matt Corby, Underworld, Elliphant and many more. In music news, our lost hero David Bowie was saluted at the Grammys with a nice tribute by Lady Gaga who can sing her ass off and accompanied by Niles Rodgers, but it’s the Brits who always seem to get things right, with an over the top 15 minute tribute at the Brit Awards, which surely had Ziggy smiling in the clouds. Who better to host the send off but the awesome Annie Lenox. Members of David’s original band played a medley of his hits, then were joined with Lorde for an awesome rendition of “Life On Mars” – now this is the way to say goodbye to a legend! Prince stepped out of the studio to rock a few shows which featured just him and a piano with stripped down, sexy versions of all his songs – the intimate shows sold out in minutes and got rave reviews, but then again we can’t expect anything less from arguably the greatest performer of all time. In event news, Scotland’s biggest rock festival “T In The Park” announced its 2016 line-up which will feature Stone Roses, LCD Soundsystem, Calvin Harris, Disclosure, Red Hot Chili Peppers and tons of others taking place July 8th thru the 10th. The organizers behind Coachella launch a new sister festival in New York City referred to as the east coast Coachella with a stacked 1st year lineup that includes Arcade Fire, Sia, Major Laser, Kendrick Lamar, LCD Soundsystem and so many others taking place at Randall’s Island July 22, 23 & 24. by Sason Bishope Parry
