hose before us like to think that we are the entitled, eccentric, tech-obsessed generation who happen to have access to the world in the palms of our hands. But what that tells me is that we are the first generation who aren’t afraid to show that we confident in our talents, that we each have a unique perspective, and that we’re curious for more. In 2014, I entered SCAD intending to keep my head down until I joined The Manor. Immediately, without knowing what I was doing, an instinct kicked in where I began to tackle stories, editorials, and more for the first time. After four years of learning from my setbacks, what was once simple write-ups and concepts has evolved into well-informed opinion, and editorials with powerful narratives or commentary on fashion’s current zeitgeist. The freedom to make mistakes and learn from my peers, my professors, and faculty is the power of The Manor. After becoming the sole Editor-in-Chief, I discovered that The Manor is a platform meant to showcase the talents of all student creatives attending this university. Whether it be an editorial showcasing the talent of two fashion marketing students (pg. __) or mock advertising campaigns of student designers, which you’ll see throughout this inaugural digital magazine, this platform is for you, by you, to get better and to be better before entering the fashion industry. We, the next generation of fashion creatives: stylists, marketers, publicists, creative directors, and the many other roles the fashion industry has to offer, have a responsibility to push the preconceived limitations with our creativity and disrupting generational stereotypes that lie ahead; we have to utilize the technology we grew up with to research, formulate our own opinion, and inform others of perspectives unknown. And I, for one, plan on being at the forefront during our generation’s transition from student creatives to creative leaders. Will you?

The Rise of the “New Gucci” and the Impact of #guccihallucination Written by – Nick DiGuilio

ucci, as of 2018, is one of the hottest and top-selling brands with brand revenue up at 43.9%. This success is partly due to the creativity and success of Gucci’s new creative director Alessandro Michele.

London, New York, and Milan. This campaign blends traditional ad tactics with innovative ideas. One of these ideas is the Gucci app which is quite honestly an immersive experience in itself. The app allows you to download wallpapers, stickers, and photos directly from the app to “Guccify” your life and social media presence. The app also allows you to take a more in-depth look at the stories behind the collections and campaigns. The introduction of Gucci into the digital age really came in 2016 when the website, app, and social media introduced a new design. The website and

app became more about the experience than simply shopping, offering a blend of engaging content and beautifully curated product pages. People wanted to shop on the Gucci site because it offered a unique experience consumers weren’t finding on other sites. The redesign was primarily evident in the social media accounts the brand maintain. Specifically, their Instagram went from lengthy write-ups and long posts to content-driven posts that showed Gucci more as an art than just clothes. This came with the introduction of #GucciGram which allowed artists to share their Gucci inspired works, this gave the brand even more

visibility than before. In the past two years, they took themselves from a luxury brand to enduring and interesting cultural phenomena. If Guccio Gucci was alive today, I think that he would be surprised and proud to see what his brand has become, going from luxury leather goods manufacturer from Florence to one of the world’s most sought-after brands. Over the past almost century Gucci has shown itself as an iconic and versatile brand that is constantly changing the rules of what exactly it means to be a brand. Through unique campaigns and collections like we see with #Guccihallucination we see how the brand is

turning into a cultural experience and creating fantasies for people through fashion. It will be interesting to see where the brand goes in the next few years, but one thing is for sure as long as Alessandro Michele is leading the brand we will surely see things that excite and mesmerize the world.

n Le is a name that you might have seen in a couple of your favorite magazines. His portfolio includes publications like British GQ , Numéro Russia, Vogue Taiwan (and Portugal, and Spain, and Ukraine), W Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam, and the list goes on. Needless to say, the photographer and SCAD alumnus is well on his way to photo-giant status next to Juergen Teller and Mert & Alas.

After some years of boarding school in Maine and completing his high school education in California, Le came back to the east coast to begin his study in photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). But before his success, the It was at the university now-New Yorker left his that Le honed his photognative country of Vietnam raphy style and developed at 15-years-old to pursue the professional skills that his dream as an artist in have proven to pay off. the United States, alone.

What he enjoys the most, besides being a freelancer and choosing what clients work well with his personal aesthetic, is his ability to be as free and creative as he wants. More or less, it keeps him on his toes, which is needed since he says that he gets bored easily. The freedom to execute his visions, collaborating with the various, eccentric personalities within the fashion industry, and the sense of liberation from convention and reality are what speaks to him as a creative. Whether it be a reference towards his interest in fine art and art history, like his shot of Thom Browne wearing a crown of thorns, or a hyper-glam moment with Sarah Jessica cover with her boyfriend?

Pierre Cardin: The Futuristic Visionary Written by – Ka’Dia Dhatnubia

O “

n April 20th, The Manor had the wondrous opportunity to visit the latest exhibition at the SCAD Fashion + Film Museum in Atlanta: ‘Pierre Cardin: Pursuit of the Future.’ Cardin is a vanguard in the industry with a 70-year-and-counting career, whose designs make one feel as if they are in the past and future at the same time, with 60s space-age aesthetics being Cardin’s 32

calling card. The exhibition features well over 70 iconic garments that span from the 1950s to the present, both drawing from the Pierre Cardin Museum in Paris, in addition to SCAD’s own permanent collection. While Cardin primarily works with 60s silhouettes, such as the sheath and straight silhouette, he reimagines the female form by adding his own

personal details that set his designs apart from the era-defining Mod trend.

draping the fabric according to the curves of the human body.

Most of his work utilizes a ring shape and variations thereof, which provides a futuristic touch that’s reminiscent of Saturn to the classic sheath dress.

Cardin not only designs innovative womenswear and menswear. His creativity expands into custom jewelry, bags, hats, and shoes that are also on display at the exhibit. Each piece is a work of modernist art, with large shapes and exaggerated lines and forms.

Cardin also uses the ring inserts and circle motif to create and exaggerate curves rather than simply


The color scheme is refined to graphic blacks and whites with the occasional pop of primary colors, whose punch is accentuated by their spare use. Other pieces play with muted greens, oranges, champagnes, and steel blues in rich silks and satins that challenge and redefine the commonly fluid flow of those fabrics. The graphic element also carries through in the striking mixture of geometric and circular shapes, providing an art deco vibe to his modern apparel. Cardin is a master of shape and line, using 2D design principles on a 3D form, sometimes exaggerating shapes in

order to further push the creative envelope. At other times, Cardin keeps things sleek and simple, allowing the textiles to speak for themselves. For example, the luxurious all-over silver sequin fabric used in his elegant evening gown isn’t overly manipulated. The simple bat sleeve and deep-plunging neckline that leads to a simple black satin bow ooze effortless opulence. The dress seems as if you could walk the red carpet on Friday, then lounge around on your yacht the following Saturday.

Getting Social with ASOS’s Jovel Roystan Written by – Anthony O’Baner

J

“ ust call when you’re outside,” a text reads as I fidgeted for warmth in a cab speeding from Columbus Circle to SoHo. Two days prior to a drizzling New York City Sunday, the forecast gave a glimpse of what we dream spring feels like. However, that Sunday was a reminder that the city can switch its temperature as quickly as Usain Bolt running a 150-meter race. After hopping out of the taxi to windy, 40-degree weather on Prince and Mercer Street, I power-walked to the ASOS US office. “I’m here!” was the text delivered at 5:27 p.m. (I was too nervous to actually call), followed by a response and a door buzzing open.

A colleague of his peeped it, too. “Homegirl was looking out,” Roystan says. A social media position became available on Macy’s creative team and he got the job.

Flawed Fashion: Behind the Scenes of Body Positive Campaigns Written by – Kat Sours Graphics by – Max Condon

T

he 21st century lives and breathes by means of artificial production. Fashion is no exception. Emaciated, airbrushed models that once decorated the covers of magazines and ad campaigns have been replaced with culture’s most recent craving– inclusivity. Plus size models, models of different races and genders, models who aren’t even models but activists and professionals are the new faces of the fashion industry. Brands are turning advertising away from people’s aspirations and onto their realities. For the first time in history, real people appear across glossy magazine spreads and in pixelated ad campaigns. While this may seem like leaps and bounds for an industry foreign to the concept of inclusivity, there is a catch. Several of these companies are using body positivity as a gilded coating to the discrimination that remains behind closed doors. They 44

of intimates earlier this Spring, Everlane also debuted its employment of models of all shapes and sizes. Different styles adorn different models, exhibiting how the garments would look on different women. However, these models don’t represent every woman. It’s in the nature of the name “model,” that these figures are still ideal figures in the sense that they represent the marketable sizes, yet fail to include those who do not fit into such categories. Women are still ordering the product based on how it looks on someone else, so Everlane is going to make sure that it looks good. Is this branding genius or a cunning facade? It’s difficult to decide because, again, it is the nature of the industry. Unfortunately, it is impossible to represent every size and minority as the face of a campaign.


However, what is possible is sustaining equal representation behind the closed doors of a corporation. This is something Everlane does seem to be successful in doing, based on a quote given by founder and CEO Michael Preysman, “Your designer should understand your customer. Your designer doesn’t understand your customer, then that’s the problem. Don’t try to solve it by building a merchandising team that is going to stand for the customer. The right organization should be able to do it for both.” That pretty much sums up successful and authentic advertising. Although the brand has its flaws, Everlane seems to be faithfully facing the future of fashion marketing.

ity” in collaboration with “curve model,” Ali Tate Cutler. It seems that The Reformation may have failed to do their research when choosing a face for the campaign since Cutler was called out in 2016 for “fat shaming” obese people on Instagram. Her argument was that, due to her role as an environmentalist, she believed “being obese [is] simply bad for the environment” and she doesn’t “care about people’s health who are fat.”

Upon hearing news of the collaboration, the plus size fashion community was not pleased and refused to stay silent.
