Fashion does it Better


Sign(s) Of The Times

Patricia Van Der Vliet and Ylonka Verheul @ New York Models (NY) We told you a few times ago about our feeling about some new aesthetic going on at New York Models (and/or Nathalie Paris). "Conceptual beauties that are easy to understand" or whatever we've called that new wave back then but one thing remains totally sure right now: this feeling of ours has only grown since the beginning of the year. No matter if you tell us about Patricia, Ylonka or Melissa, about Sigrid or some newcomer in development, the... [Lire la suite]

Urban Dreams

  Ali Carr, Lauren Brown, Lia Serge, Emily Wake and Lisanne De Jong @ Elite (NY) Alley Cats or Cats' Alley? Hard to know how the actual title of this editorial from newest Dazed & Confused sounds better. Or more appropriate. What is the most important detail: how these girls melt into the beautiful rainy urban landscape or how their presence turns a familiar-looking place into some unknown wonderland. The real magic might be in between, in the interaction between the characters and the atmosphere they evolve in. In... [Lire la suite]

Tomorrow When All Things Are Shaping

Vanusa Savaris @ Nass (Brazil) Was quite a while ago, already. Not that much in real time but in fashion it's already a lot. Good things take time anyway, whatever they are and in any field. Good girls also take their time when it comes to development, the most precious ones often need to wait until the very best moment to enter the spotlights. Well-known story, after all and actually Vanusa isn't in the spotlights yet but on her way which makes her story more interesting for us. Just to refresh your minds (and ours by the same...

Tokyo DIY

Karina @ Image Discovery (Ukraine) Could be another story relating the latest facts in Karina's development process, could be another entry on Image Discovery's scouting skills. But this is one and a bit of both, after all, provided these pictures tell enough on how far Karina can go when you put her in "actual modeling situations" and then testify it took a good eye to find that one. But that's not the heart of our topic today. To make it short on the prosaic facts around this story, Karina has been working hard on her... [Lire la suite]

Hey, Lena!

      Lena Hardt @ AM Model Management (Germany) It's quite an awesome feeling to be back on track, especially when it's for good reasons and this day would be complete without a brand new girl as the cherry on the top. Not going for new faces for the sake of having something new to show on FDIB, but always willing to be jump on the most exciting opportunities. So here we go and there she goes, Lena Hardt from the most intriguing and most precious German boutique at the moment: AM Model Management.     It's... [Lire la suite]

Please Talk To Me

        Anna De Rijk @ Viva (Paris) Not really in the mood for overloaded backgrounds these days (rather plain white or concrete walls) but the superannuated vibe we got from these shots plus that kind of modern touch in small clothing details were a pleasure to look at. Though, it's not the vibe or the atmosphere that really caught our attention in this new story from Numéro (issue number 115, styled by Samuel François - pictures scanned by elsaskywalker @ Rather Anna's body language which...

Bubble Stories

      Kasia Wrobel @ Supreme (NY) Some days you wake up and can't avoid the truth, the need to be honest with yourself. Facing reality or some kind of, bad sides and good sides and everything in between. The other morning the first word that crossed our minds was promises. Yeah, you promised me. How many times we heard about "promising new faces" or whatever that could describe bright future and high hopes. Hope should always be around when some agent (may he be mother agent or even the star of worldwide booking... [Lire la suite]

Get and Do Not Forget

        Isabelle Sauer @ Modelwerk (Hamburg) Hello! Do not think we've been sleeping again even if FDIB looked a bit asleep for the last ten days. But that was July, we're in August already. Changing minds, changing moods, taking time to make this right. And looking forward to feeling new thrills come September. Basic story yet we didn't experience it in a basic way, well that's for later and let's just focus on our first girl of August: Ms. Isabelle Sauer from Modelwerk, Germany. That's already a long story... [Lire la suite]

Happy Twilights

Ilse Suvaal @ ID Model Management (The Netherlands) Long time no feature on Ilse but our next one had to be epic or at least visually thrilling. Epic might not be the word yet but visually thrilling certainly fits for her latest work from New York, where she's signed with Trump now. Other agency, same good formula: Ilse's potential hasn't moved (or if it has, we'd rather say it's for the very best) and we are allowed to keep our initially high expectations when it comes to her career. If nobody can predict, we can still use our eyes... [Lire la suite]

Hundred Percent

  Freja Beha Erichsen @ IMG (Paris) Not going to give detailed explanations on why there haven't been more updates these last seven days so let's just say Summer and being busy doesn't help releasing creativity when it comes to writing long articles. Also agencies are either already on holidays or looking forward to close their doors for a small vacation (the remaining ones are working hard and we're always here to work hand in hand with any of them). So, it's not going to be a brand new face arriving out of nowhere who... [Lire la suite]
