Fashion does it Better

Instill

      Melodie @ Wilhelmina (NY) and Anais @ Ford (NY) Sometimes you say too much, sometimes not enough. Same here, sometimes we write too much and sometimes words are simply lacking. Words are friends some days and enemies the next morning and all this vicious circle makes hard to find the right balance. Trying to, though and we guess it happens we work it out. Drop by drop, fighting sleepless nights and meaningless dreams with the best sides of our imagination, maybe that's where the path starts and it's up to us to... [Lire la suite]

Might and Delusion

      Beegee @ PMST Keep it going like the rain keeps pouring outside (or is it snow? who knows), keep it running, keep it alive one way or another. Might be the motto on some mornings, might be our way to work some days. Trying to find the brightest side of everything we can, trying to find out how to add some spicy smell to every mild-tasting topic. Sometimes the magic isn't in the subject itself but in the way you look at it and talk about it. Sometimes or rather often. Or let's say it's like the differences of... [Lire la suite]

After The Curtain Falls

      Take one of these models, Edita Vilkeviciute, who usually shines for her multiple expressions, predominantly geniune in most of her work and place her in a story where she had to bear only one face that tastes like nothing else than aristocratic neutrality. Of course, she works it out, pretty brilliantly by the way when she literally embodies this character looking obviously disconnected from everything surrounding her. Take it as a performance or as the utlimate luxury for an editorial today: booking a model who... [Lire la suite]

This Ain't No Technological Breakdown, This Is The Road [...]

  Pauline @ Marilyn (NY) It was quite a hard task to find an editorial topic for the end of this week. Not that the materials were lacking, many things to put our eys on (then off) but was never easy to pick some visuals that go hand in hand with our current inspirations or states of mind. So, had to check and double-check, take ideas where we found them and adapt them to the current editorial pages we found interesting enough to show right now. And it's definitely the last part of the sentence that make sense. Everything (or... [Lire la suite]

Going Through a Motion

    Grace @ Factor Women (USA) A new wave of new faces? No way. Just chance that brought us some more digitals right after a full package of dutch newbies. This time, our young lady is coming from the United States and is represented by Factor Women that seemed impatient to introduce her. And that's how Grace ended up gracing FDIB today, a mix of luck and right decision at the best moment. But saying chance is one of the only ingredients would be a mistake, there was certainly something that made Grace stand out from the... [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]

Nothing To Hide

    Val @ AM Model Management (Germany) Snowy Monday morning, time is running faster than expected. Time in our minds too, as a mix of impatience and excitement. Looking through the window, looking back a little bit then looking forward to the future full force. It's not even December and we'd love to see January knock at the door. It's not even December on the calendar but it's already German Vogue's Dezember issue that we are talking about today. A few pages from an advertorial shot by Lado Alexi featuring Val,...

Can't Turn It Off

  Imagine a conversation in a bus at the crossroads of city life and countryside. What is a modern approach (in modeling, in fashion for that matter). First good reflex would be to make a proper description of what modern means but we guess this doesn't remain the same from one brain to the other. Maybe the question is what's a suitable approach for our current times but still no clue if that really makes sense. Then the real point of starting like this, is to know what is your own way and how to give enough power to your vision... [Lire la suite]

Find A Way

      Lynn Amelie Rage @ PMA (Hamburg) This post was first planned for the end of October or very beginning of November but time went by very fast and events decided of our schedule in a different way. Time went by quite fast as well since our visit to PMA, during a two-days-trip to Hamburg more than one year and a half ago. Still in their former office, in that quiet green area of the city. Since then PMA had achieved what could be the most important step in its story so far, reaching a higher level through a clearer... [Lire la suite]

Fourth

    Annabelle Tsaboukas @ Women (NY) Let's cut the chase: sorry for the drama and no, we're not done yet, FDIB is still alive! Just a few busy weeks keeping us away from our usual screen session. This next week is going to be another hectic one so keep being patient a few more days but we should be back for good in December and stay a little longer than Santa Claus. These days are actually a very precious time for us first because of the 4th birthday of FDIB, running full time since late autumn, early winter of... [Lire la suite]
