Welcome to GARB, a brand new magazine focusing on the different fashion and lifestyles we witness around us. We share with you the real people of Great Britain, to take inspiration from your quirky locals rather than the “celebrities” of today. In issue one we present to you an overview of what GARB can be. From showing you the current top picks of the highstreet to displaying fashion photography in a new light. It may sound like any other magazine, but we’re not. We take an artistic approach because we see fashion as a walking art form. Whether your style is dependent on the latest trends, the weather, your emotion or practicality we like to think there is something for everyone in each issue. In addition to taking away inspiration, you could one day be taking away a copy of GARB that you are featured in. If you would like to be in an issue of GARB send your details along with your article/photos to littletwistgraphics@gmail.com.

Dunagrees can be hard to pull off, but this pair in black make it a whole lot easier. The attention is taken away by keeping it monochrome and adding the neon hat and clutch bag.

This “Celine Paris” slogan t-shirt has been a massive craze in the online fashion blogger world. Everyone has been buying theirs from eBay. Perhaps try creating your own with a slight twist if you want to be more unique. T-Shirt, eBay £15

See-through bags have been a big craze over the past few months and the trend is going to become massive over spring and summer. Clutch, Topshop £22

Wearing men’s clothing can be controversial, but when it comes to hats and hoodies is there really any difference? Embrace the masculine look.

Beanie hats really add a finishing touch to an outfit. Ricky owns a variety of colours so he can match it to his outfit, or, clash to add a bit of unexpected further interest. Hat, Urban Outfitters £28

Everyone has been going for the relaxed hoodie style. To be slightly different create a mixture of textures by wearing it under a leather-look jacket. Hoodie, Primark £12

Ricky, Age 22 “As strange as it sounds, I get a lot of my fashion inspiration from my girlfriend. She is a beauty blogger and is always mixing up the latest trends (and dragging me shopping).”

GARB issue 1

Emily Campbell is a makeup stylist and artist studying in Brighton on the south east coast. At 20 years old Emily feels she has just about found her style encompassing both her work and fashion sense. She loves creating new looks through a mixture of makeup and clothing that take on a theme as their basis. One day Emily can appear looking like someone from the 1920’s, so feminine and glamourous, the following something futuristic and out of this world. No matter what, she will always appear stunningly well put together.


Q: I want to study fashion/makeup artistry, know of any good schools? A: If you really want to study fashion I would suggest a course in London. All the big names seem to look for London students, it is terrible really. Its a hard industry to get into but you can do anything you want if your heart is in it. Q: What is your course like in Brighton? A: My course gave me a bit of good knowledge about the industry but I feel I would of learnt more by working in it. I guess with Uni, wherever you study, it is mainly self motivated and studying at home. Q: How do you do your hair? And, is that your real hair? A: Yes, 100% real. I have always had long hair until the pixie cut came in and I cut it all off, it has taken a while for it to grow back but be patient and take good care of of your locks and it will. Q: Any mottos you live your life by? A: ‘The best kind of revenge is success’ Q: Can you give us any makeup tips? A: Contour! It makes such a difference. Q: Any makeup sins you’ve commited? A: I don’t think you can ever go too wrong really as makeup is a daily thing it is not the end of the world if you look a bit strange one day, be creative.

Burlesque is loved by many women, they feel empowered and confident in themselves. Student photographer Jemma Defroand took some girls into the studio and create a burlesque style shoot to see how the ladies felt before, during and after. Do you think they felt empowered?

With a bright red corset and hair to match, Vicky Lauder takes to the stage to showcase the confidence women should have in their bodies no match what shape or size they are. In day-to-day life Vicky is a photography student, but today she’s been transformed in to an alter ego called Foxy Lady. Hi Foxy Lady! How did you choose your Burlesque name? I like to think I’m quite a fox *laughs* and my choice of outfit and hair colour fitted well with it. What is the personality of your Burlesque alter ego? She is sexy, cheeky and very confident in herself. How does this differ from what you perceive as your own personality? I have a little less confidence than I’d like. Having a character certainly helped when it came to being infront of the camera. Pretending your someone else lets you feel free from any doubts you may have about your own body or confidence levels. Tell me a little about yourself. I am 20 years old. Currently at university studying photography. I love what I do and hope to get a career at the end so I continue my passion.

be confident. It would be great fun to have a go with all your girl friends, and if it went badly you could just laugh. Do you think Burlesque promotes a healthy body image? Yes of course! A curvy burlesque dancer is certainly more sexy. You can see how their body moves, the shapes they create with the use of their waist and hips. I’ve learnt to embrace my curves over the years.

“I love the burlesque look and I wanted to see if I could pull it off!”

Why did you want to participate in this photoshoot? I love the burlesque look and I wanted to see if I could pull it off! I think overall I had a pretty good shot and I felt like a real star so we shall wait and see how the images turn out. Have you ever been to a burlesque performance? Would you like to go to one? No but I would love to go to one! Seeing all the women being confident in themselves and just having fun with it. Dancing in a playful manner to teach other women to

Do you think Burlesque is empowering for women? Who wouldn’t be empowered by confident sexy women strutting their stuff, showing us how we should feel about our own bodies. We should love ourselves for who we are. What is your favourite part of your body? I love my boobs (they’re huge) and my legs. Were you nervous before the shoot? If so, why? No, Jemma was lovely prior to the shoot so I had no worries whatsoever. She’s a good friend of mine.

How do you feel after the photoshoot? I feel very confident and very happy! I hope this feeling stays with me. Seeing the images after will either confirm this or destroy it *laughs*, I’m sure it will be the first. What was your favourite part of this experience? It was a very nice environment, my hair and makeup looked lovely and the photographer was very nice and friendly. It was great fun! Would you consider taking a Burlesque class? Yes I would, I think burlesque is very empowering, I’d do issue 1 GARB anything like this again it’s been great fun.

Nikoleta Gjergi is a 21 year old born in Albania. Although shy to begin with, the photoshoot was a huge success and all the photos looked amazing of Nikoleta. Perhaps she has a hidden talent for burlesque? Hi Miss Nikkii Doll! How did you choose your Burlesque name? I think ‘doll’ sounds cute and I also wanted to include a little of my own name too.

telling women to embrace their natural shape and beauty. It’s all about the curves of a woman’s body and how she works with them. Do you think Burlesque is empowering for women? Yes! Certainly, once they are confident in their performance. It’s very sexy and powerful. What is your favourite part of your body? I like my hips!

What is the personality of your Burlesque alter ego? She’s cute and an innocent flirt. How does this differ from what you perceive as your own personality? It doesn’t differ that much. Perhaps exaggerates my natural personality a little more. This character allows me to forget any negative thoughts and take on some power. Tell me a little about yourself. Currently I’m a student hoping to gain a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design by the end of this academic year. I love fashion, photography and one day would like to learn belly dancing.

“It’s all about the curves of a woman’s body”

Why did you want to participate in this photoshoot? I thought it would be fun and a new experience for me. I wanted to challenge myself, almost force myself into gaining confidence. Also an offer of a photoshoot with Jemma I could never turn down. Have you ever been to a burlesque performance? Would you like to go to one? I’ve never been to one but I think I would like to go.

Do you think Burlesque promotes a healthy body image? Yes! All girls with all body shapes and sizes do it! It’s nice to see girls being confident with their bodies. I feel it is

GARB issue 1

Were you nervous before the shoot? If so, why? Yes, I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect but once I started and my hair and make up were done I felt fine. I knew the work would be tasteful and flattering. How do you feel after the photoshoot? I feel confident and I can’t wait to see the finished images! I’ve gained confidence in myself and my body. I’m on a high! I know I will be able to look back at the photographs Jemma has taken and be happy I pushed myself to be more confident. Hopefully this will have a long term effect on my confidence levels and I’ll remember burlesque as being empowering.

What was your favourite part of this experience? My favourite part was getting my make up done and posing for the shoot. Dancing around with feather fans was good fun too. Would you consider taking a Burlesque class? Yes I think it’s a good way of boosting your confidence and making you accept and love your body. It would be great fun to do, you could have a laugh with a group of friends one weekend. Perhaps I will have to arrange something soon now I have more confidence.

Another beautiful lady embracing the womanly figure. Her bleach blonde locks against the electric blue corset make a stunning combination. Hi Lady Lilly Diamond! How did you choose your Burlesque name? I asked for some help from my friends to choose it, they thought it suited my personality while incorporating my costume style which features a lot of diamonds. What is the personality of your Burlesque alter ego? She’s cheeky and fun, a bit of a diva at times. How does this differ from what you perceive as your own personality? I’m quite shy, I guess this character just allows me to gain confidence in myself and express the real me to everyone. Why did you want to participate in this photoshoot? Although I may not be stick thin, I’m real and I wanted to demonstrate to everyone that being confident in yourself is what makes you beautiful. burlesque I feel is about your inside personality as well as the shapes you create with your body.

Do you think Burlesque is empowering for women? Yes it makes you feel confident in yourself, and this positive thinking influences the women in the audience helping them feel empowered too. The star on stage has all the power when it comes to burlesque. What is your favourite part of your body? My favourite part of my body is my boobs!

“Being confident in yourself is what makes you beautiful”

Have you ever been to a burlesque performance? Would you like to go to one? No I haven’t been before, but I’ve seen the film ‘Burlesque’ and loved it so going to a live performance I think would be an amazing experience and great fun. Perhaps a night out with the girls! We could even go to a burlesque class and be taught a little. Do you think Burlesque promotes a healthy body image? Yes, you can be any size to take part. It’s about having confidence in yourself no matter what size you may be. Show everyone that what you’ve got is amazing! Be proud of yourself and what you are.

Were you nervous before the shoot? If so, why? A little as I’m quite shy, but if I want to be a model I’m going to have to work with many different photographers and interact with them. How do you feel after the shoot? I’m happy as I think it went really well. I had great fun being pampered and then posing for the camera. I’m hoping the images portray exactly how I was feeling at the time. What was your favourite part of this experience? I think my makeup looks great! It was lovely to have a makeup artist to pamper you, it also helped me get into character.

After the photoshoot would you consider going to a Burlesque class? Yes I think it would make me feel even more confident in myself, it would be great fun with all the girls. It is clear to see that as a result of this photoshoot the women all felt more confident in themselves and their bodies. Burlesque is for women to feel empowered and enjoy, whether they are dancing themselves or watching. If you love the photography as much as we do, check out Jemma Defroand.

LOCATION

The people of London. On the streets of London you will come across a wide variety of people. Different styles and trends in fashion as well as different personalities and backgrounds. Brick Lane is commonly known as being a place of diversity. We’ve walked the streets and snapped some photos of the everyday people you will see with not so everyday lives.

Bill and James Homeless Brothers from Ireland • Been in Britain since 2006 • Homeless since 2007 after not being able to find work. • Bill used to be a builder. • James has not had a job since leaving college. • With no other family of friends in Britain they live on the streets of Brick Lane.

We’ve been homeless for the past six years, and to be honest with you I think the only thing keeping me sane is my brother James [seen on the previous page]. We both love London and the people here but it caused us to loose everything. When James finished college in Ireland, we decided to move to London. We have no family here but then we have no family in Ireland left now either. As we all know the jobs going are pretty limited and with our funds quickly running out we ended up in hostels and then on the street. We left it too late that we had no money to go back to Ireland, but what would we of gone back to anyway if we did? So sleeping rough on the Embankment it was for a year or so, until we got to know London properly then we moved ourselves to Old Street. We fit in more here and like to think we look less homeless and more quirky with the type of street it is.

Brick Lane is known for being the place to see striking outfits and everyday top style icons. You’d look the odd one out if you were a “plain Jane”. People are very kind around here and we’ve got to know a lot of shop owners. If they have clothes that aren’t selling they’d offer them to us before throwing them out. We try our best to earn as much cash as possible. I’m sure you know ‘The Big Issue’, sold by a lot of homeless folk. Yeah, we’re two of those guys. We may annoy a lot of people, as we’re always around offering them a paper but it actually makes our day more fun and at least we feel like we’re getting somewhere. I used to be a builder back in Ireland so I try my best to find work doing that too, but without an address no one can employ me, and I don’t own any of my own tools anymore. Our lives have changed a lot here in London, but we can’t blame the place for doing that to us. We can only blame the people in charge *laughs*.

Mick Local Celebrity (aka “Mick of brick lane”) • Local celebrity • A trip to Brick Lane would not be complete without a chat with Mick. • A story to tell everyone. • Everyone loves Mick.

I am Cockney boy born in Hackney within the sound of Bow bells. I was a war child, I had no father but I had a mother. On 9th November 1945, I was born, my mother couldn’t afford to keep me so my grandmother and grandfather brought me up. I never had anything new, only secondhand things, but they brought me up well. My grandmother used to pawn his suit every Monday, buy veg on Tuesday, and get it back again on Thursday when he got paid, so he could wear it at the weekend. When I was young in the nineteen sixties, I was blonde and good looking – I was young and I didn’t know what I had, I made a few pounds and enjoyed life. When I had some money I went to Albert’s in Whitechapel and got suits, shirts and shoes – everything had class. I slung a lot of it, nowadays everyone’s dressing down. It’s a different scene. What you wear, and how you wear it, is the most important thing. I bought this coat for three pounds in

the market and found both the jeans and boots on the street. If you come down here to Brick Lane somebody always helps you out with a sandwich or something. Sometimes I come here without a penny in my pocket but I get a cup of tea. All it takes is to ask nicely and people will help you out. People want to sell things and I tell them where they can sell it. Knowing how to make a shilling, that’s what it’s all about and I’ve sold anything you care to mention over the years here. I never had much money but I’ve always made myself smart with a few quid and a suit and shirt – buying the right clothes, the right colour, the right cut. For my birthday, when I was seven years old, I came down with my grandmother to buy Italian shoes in Cheshire St for two pounds, two shillings and sixpence – pointed black shoes with Cuban heels. I already knew what I wanted at seven years old – you’re born with it, your style.

Phil London was never where I intended my family to live, it just kind of happened. We had to go where there was work. I think we’re all happy here though, even if it is a little crowded.We survive.Yes,Yannis and I both love our hats *laughs* at least I take mine off sometimes.We have quite a collection between us and it’s become a running joke in our family. Like father like son, he’s a chip off the old block.

Yannis My family have always lived in Kent as far as we know. I was born in Kent but we moved to London in 1998 when I was six years old. I love London and although there isn’t a lot of green grass around, there is always something going on here. It’s an amazing place for young people to live.You can hop on the underground or a bus that comes every few mintues till late at night, you don’t get that service in Kent, you’d be waiting one hour for a bus there.

Claire I come to Brick Lane to sell my handmade jewellery, it is a very popular place in London for unique items. I’m all about helping the economy and having green fingers so I use recycled bottles to create my work. I find the simplier pieces that use only bottle caps are the best sellers. What people don’t realise is even if the piece doesn’t look like it includes a bottle, it does somewhere. I’m very passionate about my work yet it doesn’t make much money so I have to have another job on the side. I work as hard as I can to earn a living, I’m hoping I’ll get my big break soon!

Sophie I don’t live in the Brick Lane area but I’ve come here a few times and enjoy the atsmosphere, it’s rather different from anywhere else in London. I try not to travel out of my home area because being unemployed I have to save as much money as possible. The whole country is known for being in a crisis with jobs at the moment. I’ve applied to hundreds of jobs over the past year since being made redundant, had a couple of interviews but the rest just don’t get back to you. I hope we can bring some life back into our country soon.

any women feel uncomfortable going out without any makeup on. It is classed as normal now. Some may pop to the shops late at night with a bare face, but from the people we asked no one would consider going to an event or a girls night out without a full face. Here at GARB we decided to do an experiment to see how women would react to having a photoshoot without one gram of makeup on their skin. Firstly we found four women, asked them one by one to enter the photography studio. We then gave them some makeup wipes and asked them to remove all their makeup. Some of them thought they would be getting a makeup artist to come and re-do their makeup, but one girl knew the trick. Her face was expressing both shock and horror. It is terrible that these women couldn’t feel themselves without foundation. They felt self concious and not very confident at all.

We asked the women to step onto the backdrop for some “test shots”. Even for this they were complaining that they would look awful without any makeup. When they gave in and accepted that this was part of the task they looked uncomfortable and stiff. None of them smiled. It was not until after we took those “test shots” that we told them they were in fact the real photos. They all demanded to see the images there and then. Each of them said they were angry and upset by what they saw. Yes, it may have seem cruel to trick them like that but unfortunately we knew that no one would agree to have their photo professionally taken without any makeup on. Unfortunately all four girls had to be reassured that the photos would be in black and white... and photoshopped. Yes, once again the media has caved and presents to you a false image. These girls look stunning on these pages, but I assure you they looked just as beautfiul before. We only tweaked the lighting. Everyone knows with good lighting you will look amazing so they agreed to sign the model release form and allow us to print the pictures for the article. It is such a shame women have come to rely on makeup to be themselves, to live their everyday lives and to be confident. The majority of men do not wear makeup, they suvive without and so can we! Keep it minimal and over time you will learn to embrace your natural beauty. Everybody is beautiful with or without makeup. by THE EDITOR Models Steffi Lai Abbi Wilkins Chloe Cornish Chelsea King

Highland Photographer Neil Massey Model Charlotte Highland Dress, Debenhams £49.99 / Jacket, Newlook £25.00 / Wellington Boots, Primark £10.00 / Giant scarf, Urban Outfitters £32.99 We have all seen the country style done before, but with checked shirts and denim shorts. Do you not get a little tired of that look? We do, it seems a bit too 90’s, like something from a Britney Spears or Steps video. Either that, or you have the posh Englishmen going shooting in their Barbour jacket and hunter wellington boots. Ok, so we may have a quilted jacket and wellies in this photoshoot but we like to think this is a dressed down almost “the farmer’s wife” look made fashionable. With natural colours throughout, and a mixture of textures, an outfit will instantly transform in to a statement coordinated look. Heavy and thick materials place a strong role in this piece as we set the scene in the Highlands during cold weather.

Monochrome is timeless. The white shirt, the little black dress, both classics. Some people may say that because of this they have become basic essentials and no longer a statement piece, therefore boring. We strongly disagree, and now show you these classic pieces in a new contemporary fashion. Do not forget that simple can also make a statement. by The Editor photography courtsey of Madalina Loghin model Simona Sofianu

eing an Englishman, born and bred, I cannot help but promote the love for my own country’s capital – London. I see the beauty that draws in the thousands of tourists every year but being a “local” I also know all the brilliance that most visitors miss out on. 2012 was an incredible years for the United Kingdom, with HRH Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee and the Olympics. Travellers from all over visited London, they saw Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Big Ben. The most well known sites of London and certainly worth seeing! However whilst there they were caught up in tourist traps (as in any capital city), this is why I come here today to guide you through the streets of London and back home with the most amazing of experiences to remember. This is the true ‘Insider’s Guide’.

Hang

Eat EAT: The meal deals at Tesco, Boots or M&S are great. But for something a little more fancy try Selfridge’s food court on Oxford Street.

HANG: Covent Garden is my No.1 place to hang out in London. Filled with great places to eat, shop and free street entertainment it makes a lovely afternoon in Central London.


H

undred of tourists walk along the pavements of Oxford Street to go shopping in a wide range of stores, from Selfridges to Primark. I would advise, for shopping, head over to Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, London. You are inside away from any rain, have a food court downstairs and directly next to the 2012 Olympic Stadium. If you’d like to browse museums and galleries then please do go to Exhibition Road where you will find the Natural History Museum (inside the most beautiful building), the V&A, and the Science Museum all side by side. A short walk down the adjacent street takes you to the famous Harrods department store full of expensive luxuries. Or for a museum more centrally situated try the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.

For travel, London Underground is amazing to get you around London quickly. Buy a day travel card from any train station for roughly £5 per person, you can use this throughout the day as many times as you like on both the Underground and Buses. Food in London can be expensive, so my top tip for eating on a day out is to find a shop that offers a sandwich meal deal. Stores such as Tesco, Boots or M&S offer these deals which are perfect for tourists but never advise them well enough for them to see. For more on eating, drink and hanging out like a local in London check out the captions below. Alternatively visit our website were you will find links to inform you of the insider’s London - www.cite.com/insidersguide/london.

Drink

Of course, do not forget to visit Buckingham Palace, arrive around 9am and wait to watch the Changing of the Guards, an extremely popular display. Also part way down The Mall is St James’ Palace where you can get up close to the Guards and watch them serving for their Queen and Country. If the British Flag is up, this means the Queen is currently inside the Palace.

DRINK: For your morning coffee try an alternative to

Starbucks and go to Costa or Cafe Nero. Try Camden for their market stalls by day but their pubs by night. Alcohol is 18+ in the UK so enjoy the nightlife but remember to stay safe!

TREND

Dungarees and pinafores are a bit like marmite - you either love’em or hate’em. If you are brave enough then the latest craze is to wear a monochrome stripe top underneath.

According to the Loreal TV advert, ponytails are the new summer style. Are they really making a comeback? Skater skirts and dresses flatter every body shape! Our favourite latest trend is seeing them in thicker material with boxier pleats. River Island do a lovely style with great patterns.

Everyone has been sporting the top-knot but this messy bun style has been updated with a polished twist. Keep it mess free from now on.

Chunky sandles have taken over this summer! Think big sole and lots of grip. Topshop, River Island and H&M are places to look.

Trench coats are a classic piece. One of the latest trends has taken them and mixed up the sleeve material and colour. This is sure to stick around and keep coming back.

Shoes

DIY

by Katie

Hi, I’m Katie. I like to get creative about giving gifts to my sister. She’s a unique person, and therefore needs a unique present when certain holidays come around. So I found out her shoe-size, and got to work.

1

Buy a pair of white shoes. They need to be a cotton or cotton-like material. A pair of plimsoles from Primark for £2.50 would be perfect because then if you don’t like them at the end you haven’t thrown away lots of money.

2

Grab a pencil and firstly draw out your design so you have a template ready. Once that is done, find some fabric paint and get to work. If you do not have any fabric paint you could try using permanent marker pens such as ‘Sharpies’ although these may be harder to work with.

3

When step 2 is complete you can paint over any mistakes, outline your design in marker or add some more shading. Set the shoes aside to dry. Leave them for at least 24 hours before you wear them or put near any other clothing, (you do not want the paint to come off).
