Fashion does it Better

Red-Letter Afternoon

It's like one week to countdown, one week left and goodbye. Well, who knows where it goes and where we will land and after all, uncertain times have their own charms. So, before to say a final thank you to all the ones who took their time to listen to our rhyme, a last piece to add to a section that has been a historical part of FDIB's story: the readhead posts. Back to our beginnings, our first steps in fashion, to Lily Cole's heyday. Back to these quirky times when Stam was walking down the runway with bold copper hair (you might... [Lire la suite]

Überraschung

        Tess @ Select (London) Überraschung... or shall we write surprise instead as our topic of the day is all about an agency from London? Somehow feeling like the german title has some extra power and sounds intriguing enough to fit the mood of the moment. There is a feeling of change, wind of change in this word that we couldn't not use today. Something powerful and unexpected, exactly what was needed here. And the young señorita (just another trick to keep this post more internationally intriguing), Tess is... [Lire la suite]

Young Hearts Are Free (The SELECTion)

                  Maaike, Amy, Ellie, Frida, Lottie, Katie, Nia, Nadia, Cassie and Odile Coco @ Select (London) At this exact moment (writing this piece) we're still hesitating between two distinct titles. Usual dilemma, less usual feature. Shall we go for the inspiration of the moment, which would be Young Hearts Are Free or something like that. Or for the nickname we gave to the project while working on it: The SELECTion. Because that's where our hesitation is, between putting emphasis... [Lire la suite]

Love and Luck

        Bregje Heinen @ Micha Models (The Netherlands), Select (London), Supreme (NY), Women (Milan) There are these days you wonder if emotions are your friends or foes and can't find a proper answer, some days you wish it was all mild and calm, that you were flowing on your feelings instead of being carried by the flood. If there one fashion story (beauty story for that matter) which really materialise this impression, that would be Bregje's latest spread in Glass Magazine, third issue. Opened by a close-up shot...

Sienna in Sight

Sienna @ Select (London) Did we tell you we started working with Select because of our Redheads sections on the blog ? Once upon a time (not so long but not that short anymore), we were seeking new cooperations with agencies in main fashion cities and naturally turned to London's best, among those: Select Model Management. The reason why it actually started was that fancy Redhead section on FDIB, called "Redhead Love" at that time (it's still called like that, somehow) with our good old "Redhead Issues" reviewing...

She's got the Look

        Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) We could write exactly the same as we did for Maaike, what haven't we said on Valerie that you'd need to know. Well, what you might be interested in right now is her brand new TopShop materials (make-up campaign), just released last week. For everything else, it's the same good old love for her look and modeling work. We didn't add her to the Muses section of the page for no reason and best is that we actually didn't wake up one day with that idea. She... [Lire la suite]

Doughty Dreamer

        Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) The weather is so nice and the atmosphere is so odd that we were just thinking about doing a post like "We Are Closed Until Next Week" when Valerie's latest materials (for designer Elliot Atkinson) arrived, with a theme that is the exact opposite of the mood here. Spooky, greyish black and white picture which immediately reminds you of fall and makes you feel like tomorrow is the 1st of September. The contrast is rather refreshing and redirects you to topics... [Lire la suite]

Caitlin's Eyes

Caitlin @ Micha Models (The Netherlands) Time went by since we first featured Caitlin, freckly beauty from Micha Models and time went by since our last Redhead Love entry as well. So, it is not only a warmly welcome post but almost a necessity for us as writers. Caitlin's career took off slowly yet steadily, relentlessly adding interesting editorial pieces to her book both at home and abroad. If her red hair and freckles are obvious highlights, that power in prints might come from another ingredient of her potential: the eyes.... [Lire la suite]

Soft Power

Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands) Peekaboo! And here comes mighty Maaike again, with fresh materials made in London (signed with Select). We were just talking about these little reasons and small details that capture our attention in a brand new face. Maaike is maybe not the newest kid in the business but still belongs to the fresh faces in the alpha-level of their career. So what's the secret(s) behind the smooth power of a girl like her ? Well, the picture above is already giving you a hint. Expressive gaze at the camera,... [Lire la suite]

Just can't stop (all around the world)

Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) We already told you the story. The young and shy Valerie who, little by little yet faster than expected, turned into a true model using hundred percent of her potential. We already told you but, as in every beautiful story, a brand new and as much beautiful chapter is getting written again. After making her (strong) marks in towns like Paris and especially Milan, Valerie is rocking London (with Select) with the same might. Blond hair and thick brown eyebrows work everywhere, sweet and... [Lire la suite]
