As  always,  the  spring  season  brings  fresh  ideas   and  styles. This  issue  has  a  lot  of  variation.  From  super   colorful  and  playful  to  dark  and  edgy   editorials.  The  cover  was  shot  by  William   Setiawan,  a  very  talented  photographer  born  in   Indonesia,  but  currently  shooting  in  Europe.   William  specializes  in  fashion,  beauty  and   commercial  photography.  When  I  received  his   submission  I  knew  right  away  that  it  needed  to   be  DI  MODA’s  spring  cover.   It  was  everything  that  I  was  looking  for.   Colorful,  fresh,  artistic  and  of  course,  a   beautiful  face.  You  can  check  out  the  full   beautiful  face. editorial  on  page  56  to  page  67.  I  also  needed   my  "Artist  of  the  month"  this  time,  I  came   across  with  Victoria  Scandale,  a  New  York   fashion  designer.  Read  all  about  her  on  page   76  to  page  77.  I'm  happy  to  say  that  this  issue   is  one  of  the  strongest  and  interesting  of  all.  So   far.  A  lot  of  the  editorials  in  this  issue  were   done  by  photographers  that  were  previously   published  in  past  issues.  I  appreciate  you  all,   with  out  all  of  you  this  magazine  would  have   never  happened.   The  next  issue  will  be  coming  out  around  June   or  July.  Please  visit  our  website  and  subscribe   to  keep  up  to  date  with  DI  MODA  magazine.   And  don't  forget  to  follow  us  on  Instagram  and   Facebook.

Q&A WWW.VSCANDALE.COM


Victoria  Scandale  is  a  designer  influenced  by   intriguing  Eastern  Europe  and  France,  where   She  improved  her  passion  for  fashion  and  style.   She  made  her  debut  in  Milan  with  her  first   Autumn  Winter  Collection  based  on      decisive   cuts  and  linear  forms,  which  create  a  total  look   with  strong  personality:  geometric  lines,  circles,   triangles  and  trapezoids  intersect  each  other  cre-­ triangles  and  trapezoids  intersect  each  other  cre ating  discrete  volumes  with  selected  and  refined   fabrics.  Coats  with  important  collars,  rich  and   soft  rouches,  skirts  that  highlight  the  waist,  slim   fit  jackets,  see-­through  blouses  and  provocative   cuts  on  long  and  graceful  dresses.  Victoria   Scandale  devotes  great  attention  to  detail,  qual ity  and  accuracy  of  the  materials  used  in  the  ex-­ ecution  of  each  item,  never  losing  irony  and   femininity."  -­  by  Marzia  Lazzaroni's  article,   Milan  2013. The  history  of  Victoria  Scandale  family  tree   takes  its  roots  in  buckeit  of  European  nations   from  Estonain  and  Polish  origins  to  French  and   Russian.  When  Victoria  was  asked  how  she   found  herself  persuing  fashion  as  her  life  path,   she  goes  back  to  almost  comical  event  when   Victoria's  class  teacher  noticed  that  little  Victo-­ ria  was  only  interested  in  drawing  houses  and   when  proposed  to  to  switch  to  draw  a  few  dolls   ,  Victoria  agreed  and  with  the  same  enthusiasm   she  ventured  into  droawing  dolls  and  giving   them  fancy  outfits.  Victoria  was  only  five  but   she  is  still  on  the  same  route  up  until  these  days   .Victoria  later  finished  the  art  school  while   agreeing  with  her  grandmother  to  teach  her  to   saw.  Howeever  her  higher  education  is  in  eco-­ nomics  that  she  successfully  competed  with  her   university  ...  We  could  say  that  probably  the   history  lost  potentially  the  greatest  architect  

Last  few  years  Victoria  spent  in  her  travels  and   work  as  a  private  production  designer,  living   between  a  few  contries  (the  most  of  the  time   was  spent  in  France,  Italy)  until  she  decided  to   launch  her  brand.   Brand  conception: A  high-­class  elegant  clothing  line  with  high  end   clientele.  It  is  a  new  version  of  a  feminine,  clas-­ sic  style  fitted  to  our  modern  society  with  fab-­ rics  like  leather  and  chiffon.  Led  by  Designer   Victoria  Scandale  whose  vision  is  to  create  a   chic,  and  extraordinary  original,  yet  very  el-­ egant  collection  of  clothing.  Victoria  knows   how  to  create  a  cohesive  brand  identity.   Positioning  Statement: A  womens  brand  of  uncompromising  style  and   quality  that  speaks  to  the  affluent,  sophisticated   customer  who  enjoys  fashion  with  an  edge. Brand  Values: Independent  spirit,  quality,  elegant,  strong,  fear-­ less,  original,  collectable Brand's  target  clientele  is  independent  women   who  enjoy  iconic,  quality  fashion  that  fulfills   their  desire  to  be  unique  &  stylish  and  elegant.   This  target  market  has  a  heightened  sense  of  in-­ dividualism.  They  enjoy  both  exclusivity  and   luxury.  It  is  important  for  them  to  express  their   own  style  and  they  appreciate  well  crafted  items   and  quality  materials.  They  buy  the  pieces  that   speak  to  them.
