I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW AND LOVE PERU

Peru Moda is now about one month ago and looking back at it we are still amazed at what glamorous and beautiful collections we got to see, feel and experience. One of the designers that truly stood out from the crowd is the Peruvian artist Meche Correa, who Sarah from SUPERIOR MAGAZINE spoke to after the fair to find out more about her fashion, the history of her brand.

JUNE 2016

# Who started the brand and when was it founded? I started the brand in 1995, but I had done research before and I had also worked in designing things before then. # What was the inspiration to start the brand? My motivation to start my own brand came to me when I realized that it is my calling to create things. Creating things is my passion. The art, the culture that is thousands of years old, the traditions and especially the culture of my country is the root of my inspiration. It is what moves my soul and really excites me. The result of all this is eventually visible in my clothing. # What did you do before you started the brand? I studied to be an interior designer and also worked as one for a long time. I was born and raised in Lima, which is why I have such a special and intense bond to this city. # What makes the brand special? Special about my brand is that I do not follow trends. Peru is my only inspiration and the only trend I will ever follow. My goal is to show the world what Peru is all about through my designs. I want everyone to know and love Peru just as much as I do. And this special essence is what makes me different from other brands. # What kind of materials do you use and where do you produce? Of course we produce in Peru with professional sewers, handymen and artists. We use fabrics in exceptionally high quality such as alpaca and Pima Cotton. For my accessories I use silver, gold, horn, wood and more. -37-


# What makes Peru special in your eyes? The fact that it just has this incredible history, art and culture like only very few other countries do. Every time I walk through the cities of Lima or travel some other place in Peru, I discover something new that I have never seen before, even in my hometown! It’s truly incredible. So many things are just unknown about this place and I want to bring all these wonderful things to people all across the world. # What does your new collection look like? My new collection is very fun and as usual very colorful. I brought the “Bordados” again in this collection and used many buttons, fillets and frills. My inspiration was Cusquña. # How do you spend a day off? I love making flower arrangements. I have every tool you could think of that I might need to make one! I love buying the flowers, bringing them home and creating a beautiful arrangement from them. When I am doing that I am in a completely different world and disconnected from everything. I like to turn on some soothing music that feeds my soul and hold the flowers and combine them in different ways… that always makes me happy and takes away the stress from the long days. It always makes me feel like I am in heaven. # Thank you very much for your time.

#music

Lauren Lane & David Squillace MUSIC & FASHION Loud music, cold drinks, people dancing, sweating, singing along, waiting excitedly for the beat to finally drop – its in the DJ’s hand how the nights turn out. And the DJs know that. The way DJs have become icons for pop culture has been intensified over the last couple of years – as well as the merging of electronic music and fashion.

interview | Sarah Weyers photos | Lauren Lane, Davide Squillace -58-


JUNE 2016

Sarah from SUPERIOR MAGAZINE talked to Lauren Lane, DJane from L.A. who has played some of the biggest festivals in 2015 – Coachella, the Rio Music Conference, The BMP Festival to name only a few. Lauren explained her thoughts on the fashion industry in an interview. # Lauren, have you always been interested in fashion? - What makes music and fashion special? I've always been interested in fashion since I was a little girl. Music and fashion are my favorite outlets to express myself.  The way I put together outfits or the creative process I use to make & play music defines my true style.  Music and fashion are special because they bring people together, make people happy and give people the chance to express themselves.  # Where do you see fashion and music merging? - Do you think one industry influences the other?  Music and fashion go hand in hand.  I think every genre of music has their tastemakers and trendsetters that influence the scene from music to clothes. I think it's cool 90s fashion is back now. Without Kurt Cobain would "grunge" ever been a thing in the first place? Without hip hop would urban street wear  have ever come into style? I might be biased but I think fashion is inspired by music more than music inspired by fashion although they constantly merge every time a performer steps on stage in a designer's creation or someone picks an outfit to go to a concert or festival.  # Were do you see your role in being a role model for the young generation? I never thought of myself as a role model before... But, I can say that I try my best to be myself and -59-

not be influenced by what other people think or do.  I respect myself and other people, and especially love animals (I'm a vegetarian). I really think the younger generation should just keep in mind everything is temporary and don't get too caught up in stuff that doesn't really matter. Always remember you get what you give.  # Do you think that due to social media the influence of music stars has grown and that your taste in fashion could have an immediate effect on sales? (Comparison to bloggers as opinion leader) Social media gives musicians a direct link to their fans. It really gives anyone who is driven enough to gain a following the platform to influence their followers- whether they are artists, musicians, actors, models, designers, etc.... If you have people's attention then you can influence them in many ways. # Thank you Lauren for the interview!

After speaking to Lauren we also had the chance to talk to Davide Squillace, who is a successful DJ based in Italy. # Davide, when did you start making Music? It was a couple of years after I moved to London and I bought my first drum machine, the classic synthesizer with the whole Atari Computer. I was hooked.

-61-

# What is your favorite thing about music? That I don’t have to do anything else! What I like about music is the freedom, I’m able to express myself fully. And the fact that it’s not a classic 9 to 5 job. Music is a life commitment. # Have you always wanted to be a DJ? No, it just happened. That’s how most of the things in my life have occurred. They’ve just happened. It’s not like I woke up one day and said I want to be a DJ. It was an evolution of different dynamics and passion that grew into what I am today. # What was your favourite place to play a set? Why? For sure DC10, it’s the Temple of Music. Everyone who is involved in the Music Business in any form, will at a certain point always end up there. You can also find such a range of people in the crowd, it’s a place with no boundaries, which I love. # Thank you Davide for your time!

Photo London UNITED KINGDOM’S NEW AND LARGEST PHOTOGRAPHY FAIR “We are all photographers,” states the common phrase. It is true that with this new digital age and smartphones that have amazing resolution quality, anyone could call him or herself a photographer. But it is not that easy. Photography remains an art form that has been manipulated and mastered for years. The year-old fair PHOTO LONDON seeks to remind people of its status as high art, by bringing some of the best photographers from different time periods and from around the globe together.

JUNE 2016

PHOTO LONDON seeks to establish the city as an international cultural capital for photography, a status which London holds for many other art forms and that keeps on increasing. This 19th May 2016 through to the 22nd, SOMERSET HOUSE hosted the second Photo London in a row, dedicating its whole building to the medium. The fair assembled 84 leading galleries from, amongst others, Berlin, Cologne, Helsinki, Lisbon, Zurich, New York, Palm Beach, Santa Monica, Singapore, Tokyo, alongside some of London’s best photography galleries. All of them represented the work of significant historical, fine art, conceptual or fashion photographers, such as Nick Ut’s “The Terror of War”, Tod Papageorge’s portfolio documenting late 70s Studio 54, Andreas H. Bitesnich’s Sina & Anthony, Richard Avedon’s beauty pictures of Laetitia Casta, Rachel Perry’s “Lost in my life”, and many more. The co-founders Michael Benson and Fariba Farshad, who both worked for over a decade at the University of the Arts London, have strong expertise in art. Through this new exhibition, not only do they showcase galleries worth

knowing, but also admirable photographers. They decided to honour one photographer in particular per year, as a sign of their highest admiration, with a Master of Photography title. This year, war photographer Don McCullin was celebrated with a special exhibition of his greatest pieces in association with Hamiltons Gallery. Alongside the work of renowned photographers, a “Discovery” section offered new upcoming galleries the chance to present the resources they have. Furthermore, a series of talks given by industry experts, such as Miles Aldridge, Ed Burtynsky, Katy Grannan, Francis Hodgson, Nadav Kander, Nick Knight, David Maisel and more, allow visitors to discover more of this beautiful medium. After only two years, PHOTO LONDON has already established itself as one of the major global photography fairs. Offering masterworks from established and upcoming photographers, represented by major galleries from around the world, art collectors and amateurs could and should spend the whole weekend at PHOTO LONDON.
