Fashion does it Better


Memories and Foresights

Brooklyn, November 2010. Saturday afternoon, on the way to Chadwick Tyler's place. Some CK underwear lost on the sidewalk. If we were in touch with him since the very beginning of FDIB, that was the first opportunity to meet him in person, where he works. This didn't turn into an interview, did it already in the past and many others did it too (even recent interviews of him seem countless these days) but had time to talk, drink... tap water on the photographer's sofa. Time went fast that afternoon and had to postpone the next... [Lire la suite]

        Naomi Preizler @ NEXT "Joeyzine" or just "Joey." as its website says. It's the third issue of this online fashion journal, not really an UFO on the radar but not your comon rising publication. Priority is photography (or the other way round) and it shows just by reading the names of contributors how much visual appeal and creativity are key words there: this third issue humbly named No.3 and subtitled by the sole mention of friends counts among its contributing photographers Alexandra Carr, David Shama and...

    Paulina Rademacher @ Modelwerk (Germany) At the crossroads of his work for a model agency and his geniune love for photography, Sebastian Koeller seems to be driven by one thing: creativity. Or maybe three things after all, as you could add passion and inspiration on the list. This connection between two 'jobs' is a gift for anyone aiming to create something that makes sense when you put all the pieces of the puzzle together, a unique opportunity when you're creating your own vision. For his first entry as a... [Lire la suite]

Wild At Heart

      Dimphy @ New York Models (NY) and Nathalie (Paris) Our short story today starts with two fortunate meetings and ends with two more of the same kind in Paris two weeks later. You might already know Dimphy was the one to catch our attention among the new models in town at New York Models for this season, we've never made a mystery of the fact she quickly became a favorite here after a fifteen minute interview and polaroid session at the agency last month. But the Big Apple was the opportunity to meet another... [Lire la suite]

Listen To The Words Of

Second interview of the month at The Fucked-Up Crew that catch our attention this year: Lara Giliberto. A photographer again, a new talent, a rising star etc. A very talented one first of all we would say. And unlike many other creative people we've been featuring over these last few yers, Lara is based in Milan (while also working in Paris) which might change us from our main photographic destination, New York. Creativity without borders on the world map that matches creativity that doesn't fit in the usual categories of... [Lire la suite]

Marleen @ Fresh Rosanne @ Bloom Ronja @ Future Faces Mirte Maas @ Women It was a dirty dream come true ! That may ring a bell to some of  you. Not a regular feature though, as we are just celebrating the meeting of the amazing gang of our Fucked Up friends and our beloved Dutch photographer Yorick Nube for a  straight- forward exchange. Let's embrace the electric FUC mood and spread the love, the sun means a lot to him.  (...)FUC: What’s the most fucked-up experience you had during one of your... [Lire la suite]

Remix #1: Holidays, Oh Holidays

  Magali @ Mega Models (Germany) Let's skip the wishes (did it on facebook anyway) and keep going on where we stopped last year. As a starter for 2011, here come two stories we planned to release during the holidays but thought in the end would make much more sense as the new year's first posts. Written during the quiet days of December, they might be a sweeter way to jump into January's frenzy.       We should be eating right now, right? Well, we are not and nothing is going to force us to do so. Leaving... [Lire la suite]

Working is Celebrating

    Elin Lindskog @ Elite (NY) There is this regular slope leading people involved in fashion medias to relate what they consider as the major facts of the year when this one comes to an end. We're not going to tell you we haven't thought of it ourselves, we would be terrible liars if we did, but after a short time and a couple of thoughts we didn't clearly see any real purpose in doing another review of the year. It's all subjective and each one will be different, but the fashion world doesn't need another version... [Lire la suite]

On The Wings Of The Nightingale

Merethe Hopland @ Marilyn (NY) Modeling is like silent acting. Regardless if we are talking of stills or motions, it's a performance of replacing words by emotions: the translation of feelings through face's expressions and body language. We'll never repeat this enough times, we'll never get the impression of being broken records when we do so. And precious examples of it are always opportunities of writing priceless entries here. Merethe Hopland by Billy Kidd, inspiration squared. Merethe is the perfect reminder that fresh... [Lire la suite]

Who Am I: Where You Are

Projects are going their ways, taking different forms after starting from the same roots. Everything always evolves for the simple reason it has to evolve one way or another. Or disappear, or lose its spark and interest. It's better then to go for an evolution, slow or spectacular. A transformation, a metamorphosis. Fashion can appear as static for a couple of months or seasons, never more. As soon as you understood this parameter, you have to adapt and adjust. Move forward, step away from any kind of systematic mechanism.... [Lire la suite]
