Fashion does it Better

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]

Soft-Rocking

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]

Easy Additions

      Iris Van Berne @ CODE Management (The Netherlands) With Easy Addition written in red fonts on the first page of her Harper's Bazaar story, we had a fantastic or at least suitable title ready-made for our entry as the recent works of Iris Van Berne from Tokyo are indeed easy additions to her portfolio. Easy for their classical style and highlighting the best of Iris -- classy and quite classic herself; additions as she worked a lot during her trip increasing both quality and number in a pretty smart way. We're not... [Lire la suite]

Pole Proposition

    Karolina @ Model+ (Poland) The "mainboard-appeal" might be the next concept to consider. At time were new faces aren't picked for the sake of having the freshest, a new girl having what it takes to build a career leading her to the agency's mainboard within a couple of season is becoming the model of her moment. The place got too overcrowded after seeing a relentless flow of fresh faces arriving every season and lasting-power has everything to be today's and even tomorrow's key word. Models who have...

The Newest Wave

Martine Schouten Hoogendijk @ Fresh (The Netherlands), Nathalie (Paris), New York Models (NY) -- video courtesy of Nathalie Paris Makes sense. A short movie portraying Martine, taken in Paris, where she talks about modeling and her favorite things in life. From places she likes to food she loves, from what fashion means to her to the last thing she does before going to bed. It makes a lot of topics but simply reveals a few charming details without unveiling everything, keeping the mystery alive while her career takes off. The perfect... [Lire la suite]

GMT+1

Ginta Lapina @ Women Sorry for the lack of updates, we were busy these last few days redesigning the future for us and for some others. Cool goal yet busy times. But don't imagine us cluttered in our office, windows closed like in a bunker, as we had an exhibition opening in between -- vernissage with homemade punch does it better. As things are starting to shape up right now and surprises are on their way, we thought it was time for a break and go back to basics. Like Ginta for Vogue Italia, not a classic yet but almost. Ginta... [Lire la suite]
