ANNA BIHAS

Anna Bihas started her modeling career by accident. About two years passed after that incident, when the girl realized that she liked modeling. What is the probability of being invited as a model to a fashion show in a small town in the South of Italy without knowing Italian? This is the question Anna asks herself after her first modeling experience. She remembers only the music and the dress from her catwalk debut. But the rest details from this event such as the venue she almost forgot. Emotions and impressions after the fashion

show were so ingrained in Anna’s memory that the temptation to re­ peat such moments again has been prevailed. As a result, the young Ukrainian girl in Italy started looking for the ways in developing her mo­ deling future. According to the girl, her participation in beauty con­ tests was shaped her as a professional model. As Anna says: «No modeling courses or trai­ nings won`t teaches you, what beauty pageants could teach you, especially if they are international. Overcoming internal taboos and «I

don’t want to», the ability to fight for your place under the sun — such skills from beauty contests will be useful not only in modeling, but also in everyday life.» Already as a professional model, Anna took part in the international pageant Miss Europe Continental. For her, this was one of the most important moments, as she re­ presented the country where she was born — Ukraine. Prior to that, at beauty contests the girl represented Italy, where she lives. It was a very bright show, the competition gave the girl a lot of experience and a

lot of impressions, including many friends and acquaintances. After this beauty contest, a lot of new model work was added for Anna. The favorite topic of conversation with Anna is about the mountains! The girl doesn`t like to flaunt conquered peaks and goals. She doesn’t go to the mountains for that. «In the mountains, you rise or fall more inward distances to release emotional toxins, overcome your comfort zones and fears. The mountains are very charged with their energy». — says Anna. She recommends everyone to visit mi­

ni­mum once those natural miracle. For both beginner and profes­ sional models, Anna advises not to lose own personality in any case. Anna’s favorite brands are the ones she has worked with, opened and closed their shows more than once. After three different photo­ graphers noticed Anna’s acting talent, she decided to try herself in the theater. She was interested to understand: who is she, a model or an actor? Since then, she devotes all her free time to teaching acting to various coaches and schools. As Miss Bihas says about this: «In

19 general, I recommend everyone to do theater. It’s not just about becoming an actor. Theater in general allows you to get to know yourself and listen to others better. You learn to listen and speak. And most importantly — you understand that every person, including you, has dark sides that you need to put up with». In addition to the above, Anna is also an active participant in the eco-project, which involves people in the form of games not to pollute the environment with plastic.

«In the mountains, you rise or fall more inward distances to release emotional toxins, overcome your comfort zones and fears. The mountains are very charged with their energy».

I’ve always been a visual person... Icons of the industry have had a major inspiration on Rocco’s productions and encouraged him to create exclusive and unique content within his network. Rocco has developed tight knit relationships with acclaimed fashion designers, top models, esteemed producers and so many more prominent creators within the industry. Carol Alt, Supermodel and multi award winning actress, says “Rocco has gone journalistically where others have tried to go but failed. Now his film archives are the sole film fashion library that is unbroken since 2000. He is expanding and growing in ways that I am sure even he could not have envisioned! He has thrived in this new social media environment when others have failed. He is the new style of entrepreneur! A visionary for a new age.” Having entered into the entertainment industry in 1992, Rocco has watched the industry continuously change and morph with the times. In 2000, Rocco began his own production company called, RLG Productions. Since then, his productions have been nominated and won several awards across the globe. Being an Academy member and Producers Guild of America member, Rocco has immersed himself in the ins and outs of the industry. As an international

businessman, he’s traveled the world to experience other cultures that helped him shape the diverse and inclusive series within his network. Rocco is a CODA (child of deaf adult), and learned to communicate with his hands through sign language before he could even speak. An Italian immigrant father raised him and a mother who is hearing impaired. He has held his humble beginnings closely during his journey to success. “Being raised by a deaf mother, my first language is ASL so I didn’t start speaking until I was a bit older,” says Gaglioti. “I’ve always been a visual person and when I discovered the opportunity to tell stories through moving pictures I found it very gratifying.” Growing up in the industry, his passion for the business of entertainment derived from when he was a young child but that feeling of elation has yet to fade.

Gabriel Trelles: «Ukraine is a profitable business platform for investors!»

A Latin American bus­inessman from Ecuador, Gabriel Tre­l­les, likes to break the stereotypes about conducting non-tra­di­tional business in Ukraine. His areas of acti­vity are, business de­velopment, inves­t­ment projects and fo­otball represen­tation on the world stage. In business, it is very important to have a strategic vision and use all opportunities, as well as to develop public relations and business partnerships. In business it is very important to have a good relationship with your partners, they always pull you up. All this in combination leads to results that you could not imagine. In this way, we contribute to the development of this city and the country in particular.

Gabriel, you run your business around the world. You are seriously interested in football, but today this passion has grown into a very serious business and you are agency «TG Warriors» now is business partner of the Spanish company in Madrid «Protio Sport», which operates worldwide. How did you manage to reach such a level? Our cooperation with Protio Sport began in 2011 and has been gaining momentum in the Ukrainian market since summer 2016. Realizing that Spain is the best platform in the world for the development of professional football, we, thanks to quality sports management and cooperation, sent Latin footballers there. America and Europe, which at their level showed good results. Now, together with Protio Sport, we have more than 70 players around the world. When is a player transferred, what are the key moments in the agent’s work with the player? How long does it take to create an image? Creating an image of a player can take six months or a lifetime. At this point, it is important to understand the mentality of the player and what he is focusing his efforts on. If he is looking for the strongest professional level, the money will go for him. If he is only looking for financial gain, he can achieve some success, but it should be understood that in this case, his career may not reach its full potential. I believe that footballers under the age of 25-26 should focus their efforts on the development of quality and technical play and not think about finances. The reward will surely come to him. And who is the most successful and most expensive football player in the history of the company? Lucas Perez became a player of FC Karpaty in the winter of 2011. At this stage of his football career, his market price was over 200,000 euros. Lucas then continued his career in Greece and Spain, after which, thanks to his success and professional sports management, Protio Sport, in 2016 he moved to one of the best FC in the world — the English Premier League «Arsenal». The cost of this transfer was 20 million euros. Another great example of successful work is

Argentine Gustavo Blanco Leschuk, for whom Ukraine was also a strong career breakthrough. In cooperation with Gustavo, we managed to make important steps in his career: from FC Karpaty, Shakhtar, Malaga (Spain) to the Turkish Super League in Antalyasport. With these examples, we show that a player’s football career can reach a world level. It all depends on international relations and the philosophy of work between the parties. Accordingly, other players, including Ukrainians, can achieve the same success. All it takes is the player’s ambitions, discipline and a shared vision with the football agent. World statistics show that today football is the largest source of funds. How do you plan to improve your position in this business? Follow the same strategy. Our task is to understand and capture the key points and take the right steps to develop a footballer’s career. When football grows, everything grows: investments, salaries, commissions, budgets. To be in this growth movement you need to be in a strong global market. One of these today is Spain. Gabriel, you have shown by your example that even a non-traditional business can be successful thanks to the right management. What can you wish to those who want to run their own business? Today is the perfect time to do business and it is available to absolutely everyone. The key in this process is communication and networking, which opens up many opportunities. If you follow these things, you can achieve the desired result. Despite the fact that we operate at the foreign economic level, and all our customers are foreigners, but investments from our projects go to Ukraine. In this way, we contribute to the development of this city and the country in particular. website (icon): www.gabrieltrelles.com instagram (icon): @gabrieltrelles_ua facebook (icon): @gabrielalejandrotrelles Foundation for Orphan Children you can support us

Fashion encompasses a little bit of everything. So yes, we are a fashion lifestyle network, but we are so much more than just that».

Hi, can you tell us how did you start your hairstylist career? My profession is designer of interiors. And I am sure it’s not my profession. But I always was interested in my hobbies. My way to become a hairstylist was difficult, because working as a designer of interior I hesitated in that and was looking for something another, pleasant for my soul. The beginning of my hairstylist career was simple and easy. I

was going to hairstyling courses and discovered I already knew all that before. All my life since my childhood I was doing something with my friends hair. But I have never consider it like something really special. By the way, last month visiting my parent I found an old photo album with photos of my first hair style in 5th form, where my class mate took a part in a Beaty contest where I was her hairstylist. What a coincidence!

2020, JULY-AUGUST What is the biggest inspi­ration for you? The biggest inspiration for me is photo shooting where you can show your talent and creative potential. It’s so cool. For me I have never know what the final result would be, but when we have a beautiful model, atmosphere, clothes and location everything goes by it’s own. I can’t say I have motivators, I use Pinterest more over. As we know, you were a part of fashion shows held in Paris and Milano. Is it tiring to be a main person in Backstage of the fashion shows? For me, it isn’t. I am ready to work 24/7 during such a projects. its so interesting and trips are great advantage, also new people, new countries. What can be more fascinating? Physically you can be tired, of course, but mentally never. It’s always a pleasure. That’s why I am always so exciting to be a part of projects. To be a part of creating in result amazing pictures and looks. Very often you work on a fashion shows like a hairstylist but did you try yourself like a model? No, I didn’t try. I like to be a part of a process much more. Do you plan any trips to the centres of a

REPUBLICPride

fashion industry after quarantine? It’s very difficult to plan something nowadays, because of we are not sure in tomorrow. But I hope all this problems will gone and we will come back to our common life. And of course, to travelling and to fashion shows as well. How Beaty salon of your dreams will look like? I have never thought about it. Maybe it can be a pink trailer and every time changing the locations. Anyway, the work in fashion shows and photo shootings are more attractive for me than the work in salon with clients. But it’s also has its own charm. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I can’t say, I don’t like to plan my life for so long time. To live now and today is what I do in life. Can you give an advice to the young hairstylist who just start? I can give you just one advice — always believe in yourself and in your talent, every time try to develop yourself. To work much for pleasure and the result will be seen soon. Do not afraid of in­ teresting projects and take a part in everything you can find for yourself. Because of who doesn’t have a risk — doesn’t drink a champagne!

FASHION HISTORY

Haute Couture

Art in Business The term «Haute Couture» illustrates the early existence of fashion itself and its advocates, even though today couture collections are perceived as being an essential advertising tool for exceptional fashion houses — as most of the couture designers nation they don’t make any cash out of it. It is already nicely recognized that haute couture has a small clientele-no greater than 4,000 wealthy female as Nicholas Coleridge referred to in his book — The Fashion Conspiracy. CHANEL

Haute Couture started its story in France, in 1858, when the House of Charles Fredrick Worth, commonly regarded as the father of Paris couture, opened its doors. With its extravagant creations, Paul Poiret grow to be the second superb fashion legend of Paris, however was once soon deposed via the girls recognized as being the only dressmaker who created a style of her very own — Coco Chanel. According to Elaine Stone, Haute Couture or «fine sewing» is these days synonymous with high fashion. These unique designs, which use luxury fabrics and are known for their extraordinary detailing are of necessity highpriced and for that reason are made in very restrained numbers, grant suggestion for the cheaper mass market designs that dominate the trend market.

CHRISTIAN DIOR

Bernard Arnault, the head of LVMH Moët Hennessy — Louis Vuitton, presents adequate records for a individual to understand how couture traces work in practice: «Haute couture is what gives our business its vital essence of luxury. The cash it soaks up is largely irrelevant. Set towards the money we lose has to be the price of the picture couture offers us. Look at the interest the collections attract. It is the place you get noticed. You have to be there. It’s the place we set our thoughts in motion». While many legendary fashion houses have been created on the

base of couture, these days most format houses focal point solely on ready-to-wear strains as they generate the most income. Therefore, regardless of the truth that we can nevertheless witness a few haute couture suggests furnished via trend houses such as Christian Dior SA, Valentino, Armani Privé, Giambattista Valli and Elie Saab which acquire each 12 months at the Paris Haute Couture Week, the significance of haute couture collections seems to be increasingly lower. For example Givenchy announced its selection to suspend its Haute Couture line at the give up of 2012, as the company will only display its Couture garments internally to personal clients and celebrities. Givenchy is not the solely company which decided the artwork of couture is too hard to support, as in the previous decade Haute Couture homes like Balmain (2002), Yves Saint Laurent (2002) and the above stated Christian Lacroix (2009) had a similar fate.

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER

According to the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture’s respectable list for 2013, the registered haute couture fashion homes are: Chanel, Maison Martin Margiela, Christophe Josse, Rad Hourani, Frank Sorbier, Ellie Saab, Christian Dior SA, Jean Paul Gaultier, Atelier Gustavolins, Iris Herpen, Julien Fournie, Yiqing Yin, Giorgio Armani Prive, Valentino, Alexis Mabille , Alexandre Vauthier, Giambattista Valli, Bouchara Jarrar, Versace, Victor&Rolf as the

next Paris Haute Couture Week will take region between June 30 and July 5, 2013. In France, the term haute couture is covered through law and can solely be efficiently utilized to the contributors of the above list. Thus the time period can’t be applied to all the designers who produce specific custom­fitted clothing, even though in actuality there is a thin line between real Haute Couture garments and Couture­ Like Ready­to­Wear designed with the aid of Oscar de la Renta for instance.

VALENTINO

Therefore, as the world evolves, Haute Couture starts offevolved to have different meanings for one­of­a­ kind people. There have been superb debates regarding the term of couture and the significance of couture lines for the trend industry. While many voices nation that as it is now, couture is the essence of fashion; there are additionally many voices that advocate couture be reinvented. For instance Colin McDowell an already common contributing editor at The Business of Fashion made an fascinating point in an article called in some way roughly «Is Haute Couture Poised for Reinvention or Irrelevance?». on the genuine state of affairs of Haute Couture enterprise which, as we know, is represented through a the small crew of people who have become complacent, which is the worst factor that can manifest to creativity anywhere. Although he doesn’t share the precise opinion as Oscar de la Renta who sees no factor in growing haute couture clothes at all, the thinking of reinvention is really emphasized. There is no doubt that rising countries such as Russia, China and India have now started to advance an intensive wish for luxury and couture as more and extra female have begun to find the money for having artwork in their wardrobes. Therefore, there is an apparent need for these nations to increase their very own couture houses, so they could deliver innovation in an enterprise that looks to promote anything however new talents. The creativity of younger people with capabilities and dedication for the art of crafting can be used to reinvent and even relocate perhaps the greatest phenomenon of the whole fashion industry which is couture. And whilst the thinking of alternate is part of the contemporary world we live in, Haute Couture ambassadors are nonetheless having the closing word as they are the symbol of what sincerely capacity fashion elite, exclusivity and quality.

Jessica, you have a great experiance in fashion events and model contests organization. How did you learn that? Since 4 years of age I have been modeling till I turned 14. Being just 10 years old I became a child role model and instructor for kids models. At 14 years old I became assistant of choreographer at one of the biggest modeling contest of the world «Best Model of the World». You are amazing at ramp during your catwalk. Who is your top-5 of runway models? I have a lot of practise and since my childhood I looked up to my favorite muses: Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Kate Moss, Adriana Lima, Heidi Klum. As we know, you are fashion choreographer at Future Fashion Faces World. Please, tell us about the difference between working with kids and adults models. Working with kids is definitely more enjoyable and energetic, but it’s rather more difficult. Kid’s energy can be so exhausting sometimes. Kids require a little bit more of work because sometimes our youngest models are age of 4, you can imagine 4 year child on the stage? But they are so cute I always loved to work with kids. The difference is that kids need more explanation and more patience in the job. Do you believe in friendship in fashion business? Yes I believe friendship exists in fashion industry. Although there is so much envy inside this business, models are making a very good friendships, because everyone needs a little bit of support from time to time. What is the hardest moment in organization for you? The hardest moment in organizations is the beginning for me. Why the beginning, because each model from all around the world has a different style of catwalk and skills, but for the concept of one great show all the models must work and walk as one. At the same time they have to keep their own personality as models, that’s why this is the hardest moment. As a jury, which qualities do you appreciate the most in models? As I said above, each model has its own personality, at the same time they must be the chameleon in their self, and the ability to transform into the designers and choreographers concept for the fashion show, or shootings. This is a very thin line to accomplish, not all of the models can do it. This is what I am looking for in each model no matter child or adult.

JURY SMW What is your plan for next 5 years? Next 5 years. It’s a very interesting question, for sure I will continue develop myself into the fashion business, since the late world situation of Covid -19, we all have to be chameleons…
