Fashion does it Better


Rachel v1.0

  Rachel Cook @ Elite (NY) Growing in life, growing on us. That's the best way we found to introduce shortly Rachel Cook, 15-years-old at Elite, New York. And guess what, she's another of these girls found by Pulse Management and carefully managed by Elite -- just scroll down a little bit and you'll seen the Teen Vogue truth (Brittany McPhee). Fresh face would be an understatement talking about Rachel, especially as these words are so overused nowadays. Refreshing vibe would sound better already, even if sounds deja vu as well....

In Truth

  Bruna Tenorio @ Women (NY) Real rhubarb fields or virtual Wisconsin, mental lanscape and strange birds singing on canvas. So strange are the ways of inspiration, never taking the shortest ways -- no straight lines. And you stand there in the middle of that mess, trying to hide in the shadows near the toilets door where all the pieces from previous exhibitions are waiting for some future epic moments that may not come. So strange and quite funny how your mind makes links where you wouldn't see them with your eyes or ... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Amy Dressel on ObsessionMIA

    Amy Dressel @ Ford (LA) Weekends might not be our favorite moments in life, they still bring some priceless opportunities to look around and discover new things. Blogs, sites, people, whatever. Our latest discovery is a blog called ObsessionMIA, don't know who is behind it but it's genius and geniune, rather an inspiration road-sheet or a mood-board than a page promoting this or that and that's precisely what we loved, remembering us the roots of FDIB. So, whoever you are, thank you for giving us such a moment. The... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Brittany in Teen Vogue

    Brittany McPhee @ Elite (NY) It's been a little while since Elite NY introduced us Brittany McPhee, as the latest wunderkind from Pulse Mgmt. End of last Summer, exactly. Tiny, tiny and full of energy, Brittany arrived in the business as a potential editorial-girl in the making with her laid-back attitude and natural poise on her first polaroids from New York. And guess what, she just landed a spread in Teen Vogue's most recent issue confirming what seemed almost obvious on day one. In a mix of futuristic inspirations,... [Lire la suite]

Snatch It!

Nastya Smerechevskaya @ Image Discovery (Ukraine) Here  she goes again, Nastya from Image Discovery -- the girl who wears snakeskin bathing suits like others would wear denim dresses. And guess what ? She's back in a denim dress, somehow. Handmade sleeveless oversized one, because Mr Brykalin likes it so and it looks much better combined to a fragile model silhouette. Fragile is maybe not the first word that comes to mind when you say (or think) Nastya Smerchevskaya, strong would be more appropriate for someone who saw her... [Lire la suite]

Early Bird

Shanice @ Ragazza Model Management (The Netherlands) Keeping the mood Dutch and blond ? For now it's going to be the aesthetic of the day. Of this morning, at least as we have no clue what the afternoon could look like. But switching from Valerie's soft look and more experienced modeling to Shanice -- brand new, untouched and quite whimsical. If there is still room to explore her potential and improve her skills, the first steps are already worth a look. A close one, if you ask. Starting her career at 18-years-old with test shots...

Rouge & Noir

      Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) Key word: development. Aka: the moment that takes a lot of time when you want to make it right. Where: Marie Claire Greece and Glamour US. What's up: different moods, traveling physically and mentally. The results: above and below. Shall we continue like this and keep this pattern for all our future entries or already forget about that telegraphic style ? Was a suitable intro and that might be it and it certainly won't replace a detailed analysis or a longer... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Anouk Morgan for OZON Magazine

Ozon did it again, Anouk did it again and we couldn't not do a feature on that fabulous collaboration. Two creative visions totally matching, mixing and melting into one visual thrill. If we needed a kick to start on a Saturday morning, we definitely got it. The contrast between the neat aesthetic of the story and the spooky mood of the models creates a strange, delightful atmosphere that makes us forget FDIB became our daily work and brings back the free-wheel excitement of the early beginnings. Even if it hasn't disappeared... [Lire la suite]

Survival Kid

  Semia @ Aquarelle (Russia) Was a kind of crazy day, hectic all the way and bringing new surprises every two or three hours. Quite like it but wish we had more time left to drop some longer updates on FDIB. Well, major short story tonight is dedicated to Semia, tiny cutie from Aquarelle Models in Moscow. Not more than 5'8 high but full of good energy when it comes to expressing herself on pictures. Obvious talents for modeling, combined to peculiar features that could barely be overlooked by anyone seeking unusual... [Lire la suite]

Anastasiia @ FM (London) After showing details of Anastasiia's raw side, captured by Andrea Carter-Bowman in black and white digitals and a couple of test shots, we thought it was big time to explore her much softer side through the lens of Emilie Muller, another photographer who had an opportunity to work with her during her stay in London. If these new pictures have a smoother touch and are showcasing the most delicate looks of Anastasiia yet, they remain true to what could easily become her signature-style: that... [Lire la suite]
