RECOGNIZING & SHOWCASING FASHION BRANDS TALENTS & CREATIVES IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY, AROUND THE WORLD


Rachæl Weir FASHION DESIGN!


Rachæl Weir rachæl_g_weir@hotmail.com @rachælweir_designs http://www.rachælweir.com Country United Kingdom State / Region Scotland Designer ABOUT A lot of my print designs contain cats, some obvious, some not. My graduate collection, Feline Fine, has six outfits, with every garment having a cheeky little cat somewhere in print. It takes a minute or two for people to notice - is that a cat? This always sparks up a conversation. Rachæl, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Designer? During school, I lived in the Art department. I was always very tactile and loved textiles, fashion and photography. I went to college for two years straight from school and studied Fashion, then into the second year of University at Edinburgh College of Art to continue my studies. Now that I have graduated my aspiration in life is to build my brand, and maybe one day has a store. I would like to have a big studio space in the future to be able to teach people aspects of fashion and textile design. Who is your inspiration in life Rachæl? How do you keep inspired? Inspiration is all around. I am often inspired by photography. I love the work of Vivianne Sassen. Her photography tells a story and showcases interesting colour and shape through reflection and shadow. We all make mistakes Rachæl; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Designer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague. The breakdowns we all had in our final year at uni over the tiniest details. Rachæl, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Designer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs? Everything is always done to the best standard. Please tell us, Rachæl, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Designer? During my final year we had deadlines every week, therefore in order to be able to meet these deadlines, I had to be very strategic. The workload was immense. Rachæl, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully. During university and photoshoots always involving working in a group. The key to teamwork is making sure everyone has a contribution. Rachæl, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Designer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why? Graduating from University and my collection being showcased on the catwalk at Graduate Fashion Week in London. Rachæl, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it? I am always creative with my work. My graduate collection, feline fine, has a focus on creative pattern cutting which is visible through helictical sleeves that I developed working on the mannequin. This was a trial and error process. Therefore, it took a longggkggg time until I achieved what I had in my head. What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Designer? Keep going, and take every opportunity you can get. Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for? Yes, I love collaborating with photographers and stylists for magazines.

Who is your inspiration in life MiÅ‚osz? How do you keep inspired? I think that it's Max Ernst. We all make mistakes MiÅ‚osz; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Designer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague. I don't remember this kind of situation. MiÅ‚osz, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Designer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs? I don't have clients, yet. Please tell us MiÅ‚osz, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Designer? I haven't. MiÅ‚osz, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully. It's been on the art fair in my school. Milosz, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Designer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why? It's when I sell my art for the first time. MiÅ‚osz, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it? It's when I have to make graphics for my client which changes his mind now and then. What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Designer?

Bianca Ruiz


Bianca Ruiz biruizofficial@outlook.com @biruiz http://www.mywanderlustmind.com Country United States State / Region Los Angeles, California Model ABOUT Originally from Brazil, I have been travelling the world as an international model for the past twelve years. Currently, I am based in Los Angeles, California. Having the opportunity to go the world from an early age I opened my mind to new cultures, I learned about myself and had the pleasure to visit twenty-seven countries. The more I travel I feel an urge to explore and get to know new places and attend the same ones with fresh eyes. I keep a positive and grateful mindset to keep me grounded. Combining my life experience and passion for writing, I share about my path and thoughts with the world through Instagram and my recently launched my blog, My Wanderlust Mind. Being in a world where we feel so much expectation pressuring ourselves, most of my writing is related with motivation, inspiration and empowerment, leading each of us to remind ourselves of the essential things in life. In my international Modeling career, I had the honour to work with the most prestigious fashion brands. Some of my recent work in the US campaigns, TVCs, catalogues and fashion shows for clients like Rachel Zoe, Uniqlo, Forever 21, Vizio, Monique Lhuillier, The Jetset Diaries, Lauren Moshi, Sherri Hill, and many more. I also had privilege the honour to shoot the cover for American Style, a four-part CNN Original Series that examines how America’s changing style through the decades has mirrored the political, social, and economic climate of the time, shaping our unique American identity. That will be released in January 2019.

About: My name is David Chin, I’m currently a model, but sometimes I’m also a singer. I love every type of art and being a model is a passion because it’s so beautiful how all the team is involved in creating a new piece of art to the world. I want to be a famous person model or singer, would be nice. Your Story Well, all my life I’ve been a nerd in school because I 'm Asian and everybody thoughts that I have only to study. Nobody thought that I was beautiful or something else, that one day I could sing well or be a model. But one day, I have fly to Taiwan, and there I was going to be a student of Chinese. Then I started to think that I could have a healthy life and change everything from now on, so I started by myself to train cardio after school, it was 02:00 am, every day, and change my diet. In 3 months I lost 16kg, and a Taiwan Agency found me and asked if I wanted to be a model. So, that’s how I started my career. Then I came back to Brazil and continued as a model here since then.

Currently, I model for local photographers, and my occupation is a data entry specialist at a tech company. I would love to achieve my goal of helping others through my passion for art and modelling, to know that others aren't alone in dealing with things like depression.

I want to share my story with other people like me, to let them know they're not alone, and they can get through it. Fashion and beauty have helped me overcome my depression and anxiety and sculpted me into the strong, independent woman I am today. Photo Credits: Chris Perkins, Guillermo.

Revathi Shan


Revathi Shan Profession: Model Instagram Account: @revathi_shan Email address: revathi_shan@hotmail.com Australia About: I am the typical girl next door who loves smiling, trying new things, and getting the most out of life. I like to travel, cook (especially desserts), play field hockey (I'm a goalie), dance, and be outdoors. Manners, kindness, honesty and reliability are what I value above all else, which is why volunteering and giving back and being a good role model is so important to me. I'm an auditor by profession, but you wouldn't guess it given my childlike enthusiasm, my love of anything rainbow and sparkly, and the thrill I get from hiding and jumping out of nowhere to scare people! Your Story I have been very privileged to be able to grow up in Australia, I love my country, but as a girl of ethnic background (Sri Lankan, Malaysian), it has not always been easy. I got through my teen years telling myself that I was brains, not beauty and that I'd rather be smart than attractive. This was enough to get me through the days until my ex-boyfriend cheated on me with his model exgirlfriend. He told me it was because I wasn't attractive, and that ripped me to shreds. He was my first boyfriend, and my self-esteem plummeted, and it was no longer enough for me to be brains. I got into modelling a year later to try to prove to myself that I was beautiful and just as good as the girl he cheated on me with. While I started for the wrong reasons, my confidence did grow, and I ended up loving being in front of and behind the camera. I'm now very passionate about the push for real models, as I believe we need to see role models for a healthy and attainable body that promote self-esteem and body love — girls of different backgrounds, shapes and sizes, so that all those young people growing up understand that there is not one ideal type of beauty and that every person is beautiful in their way. This is one of the reasons I entered the modelling competition 'Australian Supermodel of the Year', in the curve section. I love that this competition has a curve section and encourages everyone to get involved! I also entered as they put a large emphasis on giving back to the community and have partnered with 'The Butterfly Foundation', an Australian charity that focuses on eating disorders and loving your body, which I'm all for!

This story sounds like a sad television series, but it is real, and I am the protagonist. I opened a dance academy in my city and had to close because the business failed. (same that my dream) Having to work very hard on things that I do not like at all....hate! Being very different from my passion, my culture, my concerns ... soooo difficult. Now she is 14 years old, and she can go alone ... too much on my opinion!!!: D: D: D Totally ..... that story will like and shock that is now one of my best friends currently, PŒ ONE, member of the Red Bull team and organiser battle of the year and Freestyle session around the world. Thanks to this, I can return to the stages and their competitions without stopping training, living ins my city, working as a stevedore and taking care of my daughter, and so be able to travel. Los Angeles, New York, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, France, Germany, Portugal, Italy, London, Morroco, South Africa, Costa Rica, Australia, New Zealand ........ many, many places!! Which thing would be better in this world than to be able to go through it? I have known countless people, known many cultures and lived thousands of experiences. And that's what it dœs to me, and people say that I have something, something that they do not know what to be but that they have to look again and be with me to understand... as you know! The police always see it !! and still stop to ask for identification! Maybe they work for modelcitizenmag ???? : D: D: D Thanks for reading and giving me the opportunity to express myself @mackysuson !!! You write to my , and I respond to your proposal. Thanks again to everyone.

Xavier Johnson Profession: Model and stylist Instagram Account: @Xavierjohnson2 https://xavierjohnson2.com Email address: X.johnson2012@gmail.com CT, USA About: I am an aspiring model/stylist. Invested in new and trendy fashion with a mix of vintage. I am looking to expand my brand and along the way learn how to fit in this new and always changing industry Your Story I’ve always known fashion throughout my life. It’s something that has the fastest change rate of anything I’ve ever known.. what compels me to it.. is there’s no right and wrong. Everything is seen through a different set of eyes and can change what the outcome can be. It’s the absolute best and can I even show your culture and feelings from the outside. The reason I got into fashion was to change how people viewed fashion for taller and slimmer men. Since I stand at 6”7 I would like to incorporate clothing that would fit a frame of my caliber.

Nele coninx Profession: Model Instagram Account: https://www.instagram.com/alicekingshealthyliving/ https://www.facebook.com/alice.kings007/ Email address: coninx.nele@hotmail.com Belgium

About: I am a model who is always on the lookout for new ideas and try to go for themes that speak emotionally for me. I always look for new challenges and boundaries to explore. Usually, I go for things that are close to my heart. Most important to me is my family, friends, healthy living, nature and my pets. One day I aspire to become a nurse who gives warm and holistic care and maybe travel the world ...

Your Story As a child, I went through a difficult time with my parents and peers. Most of the time I had to be self-reliant, and since I'm more an introspective person, so I was the quiet person in the back of a classroom. In times of trouble, I would turn to my teachers and have long philosophical conversations with them, seeking advice. Usually, I could be found in a library somewhere, and you could always find me dragging around a pile of books, so the lady of the school secretary would always nickname me 'little Hermoine'. I never really felt completely in place there. After a while, I discovered LARP and started to attend more and more of these events, and it was like coming home to me, this was where I started to gain my confidence. It was also the place where I met my best friends and man. On this event, we gathered for the meal one day, and in his best French, he proposed to me (most of our friends speak French). We made a tour around all camps there to celebrate. It was the best moment in my life, and things have changed for the best. Nowadays I am very happy to have found a creative outlet in my modelling, makeup and painting. I love meeting all these new people before and behind the lens. Modeling has taught me to appreciate both inner and outer beauty and made me aware that there is always an interesting story behind the person who you are working with if you are willing to explore it. I hope to inspire young people who are having a hard time to hang in there and reach out for your friends! If you are dedicated to reaching your goals, you will reach them one day in one form or another.

Gift


Marcella Gift Profession: Women's footwear designer Instagram Account: @emmecadeau Website or social media link: https://www.emmecadeau.com Email address: marcella@emmecadeau.com Forest Hills, NY

About: From Finance to fashion, that has been my journey. I grew up in Trinidad and Tobago, studied usual stuff like math and science, majored in math, and now work in finance. But all the way along that traditional path of life, I always knew that I am an artist at heart. I see life in colours and patterns and shapes, and so I decided that it was time to take the leap and dive right in, creating my women's footwear brand Emme Cadeau Your Story I started thinking of creating a women's footwear brand called Emme Cadeau over five years ago. It would be an aspirational brand built on classic silhouettes that played with colour and texture and most importantly was super comfortable. Even though I have spent my entire professional career in finance, that voice within me kept saying I needed to do this. Everything I have done along the way has been a lesson in self-discovery, a labour of love and an expression of who I am. The name of the brand plays on my name, Cadeau is a gift in French, gift being my last name, and my first name starts with the letter "M", hence the name Emme. Every design is named after a woman in my life, as growing up, I was always surrounded by women who did the best with what they had and the opportunities they were given. I have designed everything myself including my logo, my packaging, my website, the footwear. I have found suppliers, leathers and even self-financed this. While getting it on its feet as has been a one-woman show, I credit my friends and family for being the winds beneath my wings. All this is not without its ups and downs, of course, I had some challenges with the first manufacturer with whom I worked, that cost me dearly. But after taking a step back, so I could regroup, and remember the lessons versus what happened, I found an even better manufacturer to work with, who has taken my product to another level. My goal is to create something that appeals to the senses and makes women want to touch and experience the care that has been put into every aspect of it. My mother always says, anything worth doing, is worth doing well, and this is embodied in every shĹ&#x201C; that I make.

My passion is to inspire many humans as possible with what I do. I wanted to become the best version of myself & deeply want to stop child labour & abuse.

DILAN

ANURUDDHA H.M.


Your Story I was born into a middle-class family in Sri Lanka. I have 2 brothers. I’m the eldest. As a kid I haven’t had many opportunities. I wasn’t the best kid in the school. Got bullied since I was in middle school. As a result I stopped expressing myself. After my A/L I got an opportunity to come to the UK. But the struggle isn’t over. After 4 months living in the UK I was homeless for about 8 months. But I wasn’t ready to give up. Because I knew I had got something greater than me. I do so many jobs to survive. Then I got a chance to become a model. I appreciate and thankful every opportunity & all the experience life throws at me. Without them I will never become who I am today.

Minh Duong


Minh Duong Profession: Freelance photographer and petite model @minhduongngocnhat Email address: minhduongngocnhat@live.com Melbourne Australia

About: I’m 18 years old and currently living in Melbourne Australia. I was moving between 11 different countries from the age of 2 to 16 with my mom, until I decided to settle down by myself in Melbourne, Australia. Besides focusing on high school for the past two years, I’ve also been working on some creative platforms such as photography, illustrating, card designing due to Art playing a significant part in my life since I was tiny. Instagram has also been helping me to get recognised and that I can see my hard work being paid off more and more each day, as well as my childhood dream of becoming a full-time Art freelancer turning into more of a reality. I also manage my own blog on the side, but would not want to make money out of it as I pour my heart out in my writings and would only desire to write about stories that I keep close to my heart, rather than documenting and giving reviews on travelling and such (even though I absolutely love going). I’ve also just finished high school (Melbourne Girls’ College) and am visiting my hometown — Hanoi, Vietnam for three months. During my time here, I’m planning to open my jewellery brand where I would be designing the pieces and selecting the finest material as the idea for the first collection that I’ll be launching arose from many of my dearest memories. I would be more than happy to share more and go into more details if needed. Minh x Your Story I have absolutely no phobia nor completely frightened of any particular objects. However, Abandonment is my greatest fear. My mom used to work for the British Embassy and DFID which required her to travel very often. My sister and I were somewhat forced to move to Yangon, Burma with her in 2012 which was when I was 12 years old. She was extremely busy and barely had time for us. My Dad decided to leave and go back to Vietnam to work after a year of living in Burma with us. I had no choice but to step up and replace my mom’s job as a mother to make sure my sister would not feel the way I did, lonely and abandoned. Going through my teenage years, my friends had a choice between doing their homework or hanging out, I, on the other hand, had neither of those options. My daily routine as 14 years old would just be going to school, picking up my sister after school, do the house chores, make dinner then have dinner with no one but only my sister. The past two years living in Melbourne Australia has allowed me to dedicate all the time I have to no one but MYSELF. To re-live the moments I’ve missed out as a teenager and to distance myself from my mom so I can see a bigger picture and understand the reason why she had to do so. Of course, there were many more to the stories that I cannot jot them all down in this small text box. However, I do upload some blog posts on my website which is linked in my Instagram bio if you guys would like to have a read. I’m grateful for everything that happened as well as everyone that passed through my life, because with it all I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

Ashlianna Matteson Profession: Model @AshliannaMatteson Email address: ashliannaisgreat@gmail.com Nevada, USA

About: My name is Ashlianna Matteson, and I am a visionary, creative, dreamer who loves people. I think if we all stopped to encourage one person every day, that the world would be a better place. I don't believe that modelling defines me, even though I love it and think it is such a fun way to express yourself or represent someone else's vision or creation. I believe what defines us all is what is inside us. Hatred is out, and love is in. Your Story In middle school, I went through a stage where I was overweight. It was just puberty. I hadn't grown in height, and I had to catch up to myself. Throughout only four months, right before high school, I developed several inches and suddenly became a bombshell. I honestly didn't know how to handle all the attention I was getting about my looks. The care I was getting made me feel good, however, seeking it lead me down the wrong road; into bad relationships with guys that only saw me as a trophy or just used me to boost their ego. I got lost in the chaos of it all and had to find myself again. Through a two year process of seeking to know myself, I feel like I stepped into my identity as a powerful, strong, confident woman. I didn't do it alone. I have incredible parents, siblings, mentors and friends that all encouraged me along the way. Now, I know that I am not just another pretty face; I am so much more than that. My mission in life is to encourage others to identify themselves and to empower people to love who they are and make a difference. Photo Credits: Traiana Mihalia Photography

I am the average JĹ&#x201C;. I'm a fitness enthusiast whose passion is family, living a healthy lifestyle an helping others recognise their potential by discovering that we are capable of endless possibilities which we can achieve by staying consistent and never giving up. Your Story Jan 1, 2016, I ended a long-term relationship and began perusing my acting career in Atlanta GA. Feb 2016 My father was paralysed after falling which led to him being a paraplegic after amputating both legs. As a former exfootball player, I realised, that I needed to evolve personally, professionally and mentally. I entered a transformation challenge while losing over 50 lbs and landed multiple acting gigs while travelling on the weekends and between the times which I assisted in taking care of my father. 2017 I won a transformation contest for muscle meds #improveyourselfcontest and landed a contract as a sponsored ambassador, athlete and fitness model with www.sixstarpro.com in the #signmesixtarcontest. 2018 I started my sports nutritionist online coaching business www.cutn50.com and competed in my first bodybuilding show @leehaneygames where I placed 4th in Men's Physique. 2019 The sky is the limit, and I will finish writing and publish my first book.

GERONIMO LOPEZ


Geronimo Lopez Profession: Model Instagram Account: @Geronimolopez http://www.instagram.com/geronimolopez Email address: geronimocfo@gmail.com Ca, USA About: Geronimo: trying to live up to the name, my mind is in business, but my heart is in modelling and fashion and how I long to fulfil it. There's this gripless tower above our heads we call success that I'm trying to climb, won't you help me jump it? Your Story Both of my parents immigrated from Mexico and opened a construction company. Not native speakers they always had a difficult time, and we as a family would come to harness and work. My childhood summers were not filled with video games or bike riding. Instead, I was either in the office organising payroll and helping my mom be a secretary, or out in the field supervising and putting actual blood and sweat into our jobs. Though I one day wish to be as hard of a worker as my parents, for now, my love of fashion sprouted as a child, forming into me reselling in high school, to opening my clothing brand in 2017. Now I want to move deeper into the fashion world being inspired by myself to complete my childhood dream of becoming a model. The funny part about this is that my primary role model growing up as a child was Derrick Zoolander, I am told I even mimic him through personality a lot.

Shelby Suzanne Profession: Actress and Model Instagram Account: @theshelbysuzanne http://www.shelbysuzanne.com Email address: sh3lbysuzanne@gmail.com Long Beach, CA About: I am originally from Shelbyville, Indiana. I'm not kidding! :) I am very outgoing and love the beach which is one reason I moved to LA. I have acted in several short films, just recently booked a feature film, and signed to my first agency three months ago. I have modelled for clothing lines, websites, and up-and-coming photographers. I also walked in the 2018 LA in a Day Fashion Show. My end all be all goal to be a series regular on a CW show such as The 100, Riverdale, or Legacies. Your Story I grew up in a small town where people don't leave, and they get married and have babies young. I knew that wasn't me. My mom said she always knew I was a big city girl at heart, and she's the one who pushed and encouraged me to chase my dreams. I didn't grow up in the best household. I had a stepfather for most of my life that was very abusive towards my mother and me. I used to look back on that part of my life and ask "why?", But now as I've grown older, I wouldn't want to change anything because it made me who I am. It also made my relationship with my mother so much stronger. Photo Credits: @chuckespinozaphoto @erinbehindthelens

Josef Gotsch Profession: Professional Athlete & Actor/Print Model Instagram Account: @Late2Wrk Website or social media link: http://facebook.com/GoochBP Email address: L8towrk@gmail.com NY, USA

About: As a kid, I always wanted to be someone who can create positive change. I always dreamed of doing what I love to do as it'll help me do things that are far bigger than me. After I won my first World title this year, I told myself I would change the way my sport is looked at forever, and I will do everything in my power to elevate and help the struggling communities and kids all over the world that want a future playing wallball. The ultimate goal in life provides a sense of comfort-ability without it being an adverse effect on personal growth! Your Story Have you ever been told "Those things don't work? You'll never make any money doing that. Just go to school, and you'll get a good job after. Your sport won't go anywhere. There's no money in it." I've been told that way too many times in many different ways that could be spun over the years I've been shooting for the stars. Unlike most, I like swinging the bat and going for that home-run every dam time. Growing up I've always played sports competitively. My grandfather was a professional bowler and my father pro skier. My grandfather was a veteran, and my dad owned a construction business. I grew up learning about how important it was to believe in yourself, your team, understanding how to take criticism, and that nobody will ever want what's best for you other than yourself. Learn to trust your teammates because a good team can get you far, and keep your enemies close because your friends will hurt you. At the age of 17, I changed my career path from athlete to an entrepreneur in hopes I can change the way people think for the better to get them to be self-motivated and to believe in their ability to do great things and most importantly what they love to do. I got involved with Network Marketing, or MultiLevel Marketing some may call it. I was in Vemma, Wake Up Now, NovĂŚ, Wealth Generators, iMarketsLive, Disrupt, LegalShield, you name it. I've worked with hundreds of successful entrepreneurs, and I've also worked with THOUSANDS of bad ones. Years of misdirection and being cheated and lied to, I never gave up because of the truth I saw within all the bullsh*t. I knew anything was possible. I started to lose credibility with my circles, but slowly replaced them with those who also were on the same path and endured the same type of hardships. Little did I realise that was the education in itself to shape me into the man I am today. I've learned to love; I've learned to forgive, I've learned to accept what is, I've learned how to read people, I've learned how to build/start/manage any company from the ground up. I've learned how to educate, speak in front of people, and get comfortable while being uncomfortable. I've learned to believe in myself more and more every day and to keep God close. I've learned to let go of friends that held me back; I've learned to understand people that don't understand who they are yet and anything negative they say or feel towards you is never personal, just misdirected. I've learned to take risks and not be attached to the money. Most importantly I've learned to love and accept myself â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all these things and more. I hate the mistakes I've made, because all my intentions and philosophies were honest and true, but the outcomes of failure lead people to dislike me, thinking I wanted to take them down on purpose as if I would benefit off of it. Nobody was giving me a chance to paint the picture of the vision board I've created, with every puzzle piece being moved around in the wrong directions with no fault of my own. Just because life happened. I learned to adapt. It got to a point where my failures were what I was remembered for but not for what was one of my greatest assets to my knowledge and experience. Almost 8 years later, I've earned a World Title for TeamUSA (which is once every 3 years for my sport), I've learned to trade the foreign exchange markets successfully, I've made the correct investments with the right people, and I'm running a multiple E-commerce businesses and have ownership in one CBD company and plan on opening my holistic centre in the future. After years of networking with like-minded individuals and elevating my spirit, health,overall well being, and being able to scale my life and businesses, I look forward to giving back to all those people who thinks I've tried to hurt them, and those I've hurt intentionally without given a chance to explain and be able to impact the communities positively with charities I'm currently involved with. Thanks for reading the story summed up! Photo Credits: Photos by http://keithsphotos.toadworld.net/ and personal photographers and NYSportsScienceLab
