Friends,

In the New Year, the benefit of looking back is to recognize progress in our personal and professional

endeavors. We at FASHION FACES are excited about embarking on what lies ahead in 2014. When you know

who you are, you know what it is you are to do. Let your Identity guide your ambitions. You are, therefore you

must... do what it is your creative mind thrives to execute! Less talk and more action. Show us what you’ve

got! We are lovers of art & design in all forms. We are happy to be networking with YOU and see the displays

of your best recent work! We know you are out there, worldwide, hoping and dreaming like we are (here).

Let us dream with you and build this thing together. Let’s all make FASHION FACES a piece of ourselves and

take pride in the collaboration and contribution of Art as Life and Life as our Art! Here’s to 2014! Go get ‘em

and bring ‘em back... to get published!

Make us proud!

Kindly,

Jenna Belt

Editor in Chief

PUBLISHER’S NOTE

Photographers,

We greatly appreciate the efforts, training, cost and

time that you put into perfecting your skill. Our goal is

to display your art, in as close to your vision. We prefer

to present them in as large a format as possible. There

are just a few things to consider while submitting image

for a publishing. In layout, the overall composition of an

image can determine the options in which that image is

laid out. If the original image is cropped too tightly, this

may discourage full page display. For example, hands,

feet/shoes, hair and the like can be prone to unwanted

cropping due to lack of proper proportioning for a

typical full 8.5x11 or 8.5x17 page layout. Additionally,

consider where faces or body parts may come close to

the center of the 2 page, horizontal layout.

Help us make Fashion Faces the premiere fashion

industry magazine and to display your art, in it’s purest

form.

For comfort in viewing, decide how far from the edge

of the page you would want an important part of the

image, or test, to be. We receive many photos that are

pushed to the very edge of the image. It limits the way

that we can display the entirety of the image. Again

as we work with the finest photographers around the

globe, our goal it to present your true vision for your

images. Please help us, by not cropping so close.

Make open space when taking your shots. With every

shoot, think cover, and shoot some images with plenty

of head room for a masthead. In some cases you may

want to send us two images. One with plenty of room

and one with your desired post-production crop. We

promise to keep your image looking their best! Don’t

forget the bleed!

Thank you,

Yours in Fashion,

David Kidd

WARDROBE STYLING | UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


Helene France is an award winning

fashion stylist, who founded “Helene France”

in 2010. Since the opening of her self-titled

line, France has been styling TV hosts,

commercials, public figures, magazine

editorials, and runways for fashion week

in New York and Washington D.C. She

has worked with renowned designers

(i.e. Sarli Couture, Alberto Rodriguez, and

John Paul Ataker) and styled collections

for their runway shows. 


Before entering into the fashion industry

France was an associate in a major

Washington D.C. law firm. After years of

studying law in college and then getting

her masters, France decided to switch

career paths. Good thing she did, because

now the fashion industry has an amazing

talent. In 2013 France won best emerging

clothing stylist at the Maryland Fashion

Awards, and is a nominee for this upcoming

year for best clothing/stylist category.


Philanthropy is what really makes France

stand out as a stylist. After losing a parent

to cancer, she was adamant to help women

who are affected by breast cancer.

She participates in fund raising events

and produces fashion shows to benefit

breast cancer foundations and support

woman associations.

TAKE ME HOME | UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

http://azhumane.org

A few days before Thanksgiving, Emergency Animal Medical Technicians

from the Arizona Humane Society were called to rescue a cat who had gotten

herself in a prickly situation. When they arrived, the feline was covered in

cactus needles and it took several hours for veterinarians in AHS’ trauma

center to remove all the spines from her paws, tail, muzzle mouth and one of

her eyes. The 1-year-old kitty cat, now known as Cactus Jane, has made a

full recovery and is now ready to find a new home- hopefully one where she

can reside as an indoor house cat so she won’t get into any more trouble.

Jane has proven herself to be a love bug with a sweet disposition and as

an added bonus, she’s good with kids and other cats. She will contently sit

on your lap while you gently pet her and all the while her purr rumbles like

a diesel engine.

For more information about Cactus Jane, call the Arizona Humane Society’s

Petique at 602-957-3113 or visit the Retail and Adoption center located at

the Biltmore Fashion Park and ask for animal ID number A463627.

FF: What does fashion mean to you?

NS: Fashion means to me the trend,

manner, or way of style at the moment.

I also believe that fashion is a personal

entity. My clients are encouraged to

dress in a way that appeals to them, and

keeps them mostly in their comfort zone.

However, we like to add a little twist or

flair to keep them up to date with the style

of the moment.

FF: When did you realize you wanted

to get into the business side of the fashion

industry? 


NS: I always loved fashion since I

was a little girl designing clothes for my

Barbie’s and Francie dolls. It was an easy

transition for me to go into the business

side of fashion, because I studied finance

in college.

My first job in the fashion industry was

working in New York for Gitano Jeans,

where I was their showroom model and

assistant buyer. I was very lucky and was

even able to do their print work when a

client decided I was the one. That moment

led me back into full time modeling, acting,

and developing my own style.

FF: How long have you been in business? 


NS: I have been in business for 20 years.

I started my first store in New Jersey.

the mac duggal collection

94 JAN 2014 | http://fashionfacesmag.com


FF: Describe the general process you go

through to select a piece of clothing? 


NS: When I select a piece of clothing,

especially a gown, I do not have to look at

it for a long time. I know within seconds if it’s

something I can work with, or something that

will be a heavenly creation with the help from

my amazing seamstress, Irene Jameson. 


When purchasing or designing for my stores,

I tend to pick things that really jump out at me.

I like things that will allow my clients to have a

unique style. I love very rich and airy fabrics

for the flowy-type dresses and gowns, but

I also love gorgeous colorful stones, which

can add detail to bodice styles.

I love my gowns to have depth and a clean

look inside and outside. The dresses I

love to pick out the most are those for my

pageant girls. I want them to look amazing

while feeling great. Again, I must stress

the great work my seamstress, Irene, does

by making the gowns like second skin for

these girls. She has a very rich eye and is

my partner in another one of my stores.

FF: From your experience, what do you

believe makes a quality gown? 


angela and alison

http://angelaandalison.com

NS: A quality gown is first and foremost

beautiful. It has rich fabric, impeccable

design, great fit, clear clean stones,

and a great line that follows the body where

it should.

http://fashionfacesmag.com | JAN 2014 95


FF: What matters to you the most in selecting fashion

brands or designer? 


NS: A designer of a fashion brand that instantly thrills

me, makes me excited to work with them. Support

from the designer and staff are very important, as well

as personalization and how well we can collaborate

together, typically.

FF: How do you prepare for a fashion shoot or show?


NS: To prepare for a fashion shoot, I consider the

models shape, stature, and coloring, to figure out what

will look best on each girl. I have to make sure that she

compliments and highlights what she is wearing.

NS: What matters most to me when selecting

the fashion brands, is a designer will work with

my ideas and suggestions. I like for designers

to have cutting edge designs, like McDuggal,

and I love Jay at Panalopy for his unique styles.

Karishma Creations has a gorgeous outlook and

bright colors, and Colors Dress has gorgeous

material, flow, and stunning details. I am also a

huge fan of Angela and Alison for their amazing

stonework and unique patterns.

anjali ballgowns by karishma creations

http://karishmacreations.com


FF: What advice do you have for aspiring

models or pageant contestants?

NS: My advice to any aspiring model is to

be yourself, and be comfortable in your own

skin. God blesses everyone with different

types of beauty, but the most beautiful girl is

the one who shines from within. I modeled

in New York at a very young age and later

went into acting. I did this, because it was

so much fun to be able to express myself

in that format.

FF : What do you like best about selecting

clothes for your clients?


NS: My favorite part of selecting clothes is to

visualize them on certain clients. I love when I call

a client to come try on a dress, the expressions

they have when they first see themselves in it.

FF: How would you define your personal style?


anjali ballgowns by karishma creations (above)

http://karishmacreations.com

the mac duggal collection

http://macduggal.com

NS: My personal style cannot really be defined,

seeing as here are so many styles that I love.

I am always drawn to champagne colors first.

However, I love the bright colors and lots of

stoning detail too. I can see a gown that can be

plain, but have a classic look and I am drawn to

them as well. I gravitate towards the ones that,

I feel, will make my clients standout the most.

FF: What are some of your fashion goals?


NS: My fashion goals are to continue to grow

with my own personal line, “Norieta”, and to

make more unique signature styles that are

even more cutting edge.

EXCEPTIONAL EYEWEAR

Exceptional Eyewear with Alexander Daas

Sophisticated, fashion forward and elegant.

These are the words eyewear designer and

stylist Alexander Daas uses to describe his

optical brand. Aside from offering a unique

aesthetic, Daas creates his own eyewear

line catering to those with narrower faces.

Daas grew up in the eyewear industry,

helping run his family’s optical boutique in

San Francisco until he officially took over

after graduating college. As a secondgeneration

optician, Daas built up a clientele

that came to him for custom designs and

alterations because they had smaller faces.

“I wanted to have some kind of signature but I also didn’t want

it to be loud,” Daas says. “(Customers) like the high-end feel of

having something, but...they don’t feel like they are a walking

advertisement for the brand.”

Daas uses his styling background to influence his designs

rather than following current trends. He utilizes dual-side

coloring and color mixing to add a modern touch to the classic

shape of his eyewear.

The Alexander Daas eyewear collection uses top-of-theline

manufacturing techniques and materials, such as a high

quality plastic called acetate. Daas says he draws out the

concept and shape for each piece of eyewear, which is then

handmade to add better quality and stand out from opposing

mass-produced labels.

In fact, 25 percent of the population has

a small pupillary distance, or the distance

between the pupils. Due to a lack of

selection in luxury eyewear, Daas says

many adults with small PD are forced to buy

child or cheaper quality frames.

“I SAW A MAJOR MARKET NOT

BEING MET IN THE LUXURY

DIVISION OF EYEWEAR.”

“I had my own ideas that I wanted to put

together and decided to launch my own

line,” Daas says. “I saw a major market not

being met in the luxury division of eyewear.”

Daas launched his first collection in 2010

and says his line is personal and unique. The

one of-a-kind hinge serves as the signature

to his brand and is placed on the inside of

the temple, which customers appreciate.

He also focuses mainly on the aesthetic fit

of his glasses, using elegant hinges with a

more classic frame to define his brand.

#potrerotoffee

One thing Alexander Daas

has enjoyed about being

an eyewear stylist and designer

is seeing the optical industry

change over the years.

“The industry has kind of changed

to where now eyewear has become

much more fashion forward and now

it is an accessory,” Daas says.

#somablack

“It is important not just to find the right frame

to fit your lenses properly, but to find the right frame

that makes you look better.”

Daas currently owns City of Eyes Optique in four locations across the state of California and

his frames are available throughout the country through authorized dealers. To find a location

the looks and sounds that made it all possible,

and which are still being plundered shamelessly

(albeit rather unimaginatively) today!

For most people today, it is possibly rather hard

to imagine a world not driven and controlled by

over professionalized marketing & branding!

Where all is a ‘construct’ a cynical marketing

collage of the past (i.e. Lady Gaga) that passes

itself of as something new happening and now!

To a credulous consumer group, dumbed down

by ruthless brand conditioning, and living a

reality that increasingly evokes the story of ‘The

Emperors New Clothes’!

In the beginning was the 60s! And the 60s started with

Mary Quant and her Bazar shop on the Kings Road Chelsea

in London!

MQ, together with the Inspired genius hairstylist the late Vidal

Sassoon, created a Cultural Revolution! MQ was a posh girl

with an even posher husband & partner (Alexander Plunket

Green). And Vidal was a working class Jewish boy from the

poorest part of East London, who had managed to ‘trade up’

through sheer force of style! The combination of these two

elements, created the ‘Looked That Cooked’ and literally

‘Changed The World!’

The other major player in the game was a gay working class

Scottish (Glasgow) motor mouth called John Stevens! MQ

though, and her Chelsea shop primarily catered for wealthy

ultra trendy posh girls with cut glass accents! However what

really made this ‘Alchemy Of Style’ so interesting was the

addition of the then extremely young and ultra hip ‘Andrew

Loog Oldham!’ Oldham went on to become the manager

of the fledgling Rolling Stones, indeed the Stones 60s’

cool, would never have happened without him! And without

doubt, his sense of ‘the look’ was certainly enhanced by

working for MQ!

LET’S KICK OUT THE JAMS AND

GET 2014 OFF TO A GOOD START

WITH A LITTLE CONSCIOUSNESS

RAISING UPLIFTING KARMA!

However! It was not always so! (As both I, and

certainly the FF team know only to well!) And this

is the reason why the FF circulation is moving on

up, while others have only a downward trajectory!

Because it’s all about ‘ATTITUDE’!

http://fashionfacesmag.com | JAN 2014 107


John Stevens though was a whole different ball game!

A tough gay young mover and shaker he had read the signs

and signals sent by the emerging UK Mod Movement, and

he was quick to act on it! Within two years he had a string

of ultra hip small boutiques (all under different names) in

Carnaby Street in London’s Soho! Which became the island

of ultra cool, for the Mod Generation! Not only the young

Mod Faces and Tickets, but also all the cool new bands

that went on to change the world, from The Beatles to The

Stones, The Who, The Small Faces, The Kinks, indeed

everyone who was hip young beautiful and happening!

The Cool Look of these bands was an integral part of the

music, indeed you could not (and cannot) separate the

LOOK, from the SOUND! Perhaps the coolest dressers

of them all were The Who and The Small Faces, with their

more or less ‘authentic’ Mod Look! However as 65/66 came

around, and the new ultra hip post Mary Quant Chelsea

Boutiques like the mind blowingly ultra cool Hung On You

and Granny Takes a Trip, opened up, and Psychedelia came

in! Twiggy & Marianne Faithful were the iconic dream girls!

The Beatles & The Stones, became the true Zengangsters

of Style!

IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT

TO REMEMBER THAT FASHION

IN THE 60’S AND 70’S

WAS ALL ABOUT LONDON!

Hair had become longer fashion had become totally

androgynous and more flamboyant (very important point!)

and the pungent aroma of ‘exotic cheroots’ was definitely in

the air! The best illustration of ‘the look’ is to look at images

of Brian Jones, founder member of the Stones who went on

to die so tragically young! Brian Jones (and his girlfriend

Anita Pallenberg) perhaps more than anyone personifies the

brilliant ‘Psychedelic Mod Dandy’ Look of the 60s!

This of course was an entirely androgynous look,

and boys and girls would swap and wear each

others clothes at will! Also one has to remember

how skinny all the Brits were then!

Post War UK had reared a generation of hip skinny

beautiful people reared on the austerity and food

rationing of the war! Today’s terminal overweight/

obese culture simply did not exist!

As the sixties gave way to the seventies David

Bowie and more than anyone else Roxy Music,

created the next cultural revolution of style!

And it is very important to remember that in all

these periods I refer to, Fashion Designers and

Pop Stars, functioned as one single integrated

subculture! Most of them came from Art College

Backgrounds, and most knew each other!

The early to mid 70s was principally about three

shops/designers: Biba in Kensington, Alkasura

in Chelsea, and Mr Freedom, also in Chelsea!

There were many other great designers, the

late great genius of Ossie Clarke for example,

however it was Biba, Alkasura and Mr Freedom

that personify the era!

It is also important to remember that Fashion in

the 60s and 70s was all about London! Paris was

considered incredibly dated, as was Italy, and

the USA did not feature at all, indeed American

fledgling hipsters flooded into London to buy

there clothes (and music).

As the 70s wore on a new vibe came in! A harder

edge appeared, driven and created almost

entirely from London based art colleges ‘Punk’

howled its way onto the streets of London (and

around the world). In reality ‘Punk’ was an ‘Art

Movement,’ a ‘Performance Art Installation,’

‘Revolt Into Style’, and it utterly and completely

altered and subverted the whole concept and

idea of fashion!

JAN 2014 | http://fashionfacesmag.com


To see images today of The Sex Pistols is (to see) ‘The Look’

that changed the world...making Vivienne Westwood and

Malcolm McClaren rich & famous! A look at so much of the

imagery of the Punk/New Wave/Post-Punk bands of that time

- The Clash, The Slits etc. etc., show a look that has, and still

is being recycled in fashion thirty five years later! Madonna

for example took her entire early look from The Slits!

By 1978 at the very latest, Punk was well and truly over, and had

metamorphosized into something called ‘New Wave’/’Post-

Punk’ (which is where the most interesting fashion and music

really begins!)!

An examination of this period will show a strong ‘German

Influence’, certainly in Manchester’s Factory Records, with

Peter Saville’s inspired Artwork, and the look and ‘feel’ of

bands like Joy Divison, and many of the more ‘Industrial’

Northern English bands!

In the late 70s and early 80s something called ‘Goth’ appeared!

This had (and indeed has) many shapes and forms, but it is a

look that embedded itself almost permanently into designers

and the fashion industry (including today!)

And when Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo first hit Europe

they were often perceived as a type of ‘High End Designer

Goth’ (and indeed still are!) The Powerfully imagery and music

of Germany’s Kraftwerk, pervaded the whole of the 80s, and

there was very little cool pop or imagery that did not have a hefty

slice of Krafwerk/Germanic Cool in it, or indeed of Einsturzende

Neubauten, Kraftwerks more abstract industrial cousins

in Berlin!

The 80s was probably the high point in fashion, with brilliant

and inspired ‘Street Style’, driven by music and club culture!

This spread out from the streets and clubs of London and

took over the world! The first movers in this were (as usual)

the Japanese, who having picked it up, did it better than

anyone else (and indeed still do!).

The coolest, most iconic ‘Pop-Woman’ of this period was

perhaps The Eurythmics’ Annie Lennox, with her ultra cool

androgynous minimalist tailored look and boyish hennaed hair

(a look lifted entirely from the all-girl Berlin Group Malaria!).

As for Madonna? Again, her career launching look

was lifted very cleverly from London Street Style,

and in particular The Slits! To visit NYC in the 80s,

was like visiting a rather cool reflecting mirror of

London Street Style! Not however LA, which then

(as now) was/is still stuck in ‘Punk Nostalgia’ and

‘Retro Rock’ clichés!

THE SEX PISTOLS IS

‘THE LOOK’ THAT CHANGED

THE WORLD...MAKING

VIVIENNE WESTWOOD AND

MALCOLM MCCLAREN

RICH & FAMOUS!

Throughout the 80s London had the most inspired

and inventive fashion scene in the world! Driven

by ‘Street Fashion Cool’ & ‘The Ultra Hip Club

Stylists’ labels and designers emerged that were

(and indeed are) still moving, shaking and being

plagiarized and copied by young designers,

labels and brand to the present day!

Workers For Freedom/Body Map (David Hula)/

Demob (Willy Brown)/Wendy Dagworthy/ and the

wonderful (and sadly missed) Hyper Hyper and

Kensington Market! Took the idea of Ultra Cool

Anarchic Street/Club Style & Social Democracy,

and created a whole new ‘Postmodern Look’!

And it is this ‘Look & Sound’ that still drives and

influences Fashion/Music/Pop-Culture, to the

present day!

Chris Garland


The 90s was without doubt the last time when both fashion and

music united as one single unified culture, and was genuinely

fresh new inventive and exciting! ‘Brit Pop’ had taken off in

a massive way, with cool arty bands like Pulp, Blur, Elastica,

Suede, The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays and Oasis, kicking

out the jams, with a whole fresh new take on pop culture and

a brilliant visual style, still being copied and recycled today!

The real big new in the 90s though was ‘Clubculture’! With

Techno/Trance music filling the clubs all over Europe and

Ibiza becoming the center of the universe for all who were

young cool stylish and beautiful! The look that became

known as ‘Clubwear’ ruled! And spread around the globe!

Sadly the USA (other than NYC & a few ultra hip young dudes

with their radar plugged in to what was happening!)) rather

missed out in most of this! But it is this ‘look’ (like 70s punk

retro) which is being continually being re-shaped/re-modeled

and re-hashed (just like music) in an increasingly desperate

attempt to inject the current ‘emperors new clothe-ism’ of the

fashion and music industry with a less than believable illusion

of ‘Wow’!

WHY TODAY EVERYBODY IN FASHION

& MUSIC TRIES TO IMITATE THE PAST

RATHER THAN CREATE THE FUTURE!

What has to be remembered is this: It was the ‘Sound’ the

bands/music of all these periods (right up until the end of

the 90s) that inspired designers! NOT the other way round!

Young fashion design students at London’s Central St Martins

and The Royal College Of Art (still today the most prestigious

and influential fashion/design faculties in the world) would

spend their nights in the clubs posing, hanging out, dancing

and seeing bands. Indeed many of the coolest looking and

sounding bands came from art school backgrounds (and still

do). So these young design students would create ideas that

expressed the ‘look’ & the ‘attitude’! So it ALL came from ‘The

Street’ the ‘Subculture’! Not as it is today, from the artless

uniformity of Marketing & Branding, applied from ‘Above’!

What held all this together of course was The

Face Magazine! More than any other publication

then or since (although FF shows definite signs

of moving in this direction I am happy to say!)

The Face had it’s ‘Finger on the Trigger ‘of music

and fashion! It was the ‘Connector’! And global

hipsters would religiously buy their copy of the

magazine each month, knowing that what ever

was featured, was way ahead of the game, totally

‘below the radar’! And nobody else yet knew

about it!

A look at some of the collage of images that

accompany this article will illustrate how cool it

all was, and why today everybody in fashion and

music tries to imitate the past rather than create

the future! However, I like many, who ‘were there’

can sense a change! The ‘codes, signs & signals’

are all there!

It’s about to get exciting and interesting again!

And the next ‘Cultural Revolution’ is just around

the corner! So make sure you get your copy of

FFM each month! And when the train leaves the

station! You might just have a ticket to ride and

survive the ‘Style Wars’!

Life Is Beautiful If You Want It To Be!

We All Create Our Own Karma!

A Happy & Beautiful New Year to You All!

Kick Out The Jams!

INTERVIEW WITH CANADIAN ACTRESS & ONE OF

MAXIM’S TOP 100 MODELS, LAURA VANDERVOORT

FF: How did you know that acting was

something you wanted to do for the rest of

your life?

LV: I truly didn’t when starting. I was 13

and was inspired by the movie, “My Girl.” It

seemed like something so special, being

able to evoke emotions in others through

a personal and emotional art form. I had

really been focusing on sports, martial arts

particularly. As I grew into the industry

and into myself, I challenged myself by

working on different projects, and I ultimately

realized I had a long lasting passion for it.

...SOMETHING SO SPECIAL, BEING ABLE TO

EVOKE EMOTIONS IN OTHERS THROUGH A

PERSONAL AND EMOTIONAL ART FORM.

FF: What would you consider to be one of

the defining moments in your career thus far?

LV: I feel like every project has taught me

crucial things about being an actor and being

in this tricky business, but it also taught me a lot

about myself. Picking a defining moment is hard.

Personally, defining moments would be those

days on set I wasn’t sure I could get through...

but did. Professionally, defining moments

aren’t as clear. “Smallville” was a wonderful

opportunity for me to get me in front of the

American industry.

I had worked so long as a Canadian child

actor, but “Smallville” truly helped me become

more visible. “Ted” was a big moment for me

both personally and professionally. Working

with one of my first crushes, (Mark Wahlberg)

and finally being a part of a feature film many

would see. Every project has wonderful

lessons and challenges. That’s what I live for!

FF: You’ve been in so many movies and

TV shows, which one of the characters that

you’ve played do you relate to the most?

LV: I always try to find a way to relate to

every role. Some are obviously closer to

home then others. My role as Frankie in the

Indie film “Damage,” was the furthest I’ve

been from myself, a true departure. Whereas

my new series, “Bitten,” has been a character

I have fallen in love with. Elena (Bitten) is

so layered. I relate to her in many ways,

but also just invested so much of myself in

her for six months that I feel closest to her.

FF:

You were starring in a show in

Canada, what do you think is a difference

between productions in Canada compared

to the U.S. (If there is a difference at all)?

LV: There really is no difference. It’s all

about the work you put in. High budgets or low,

you really make it what you want. Perhaps, in

Canada we say “eh” and “sorry” a little more

while working, but there truly is no difference

in terms of your personal experience. On

the business side...Canadian and American

projects can differ greatly, I’m sure.

http://fashionfacesmag.com | JAN 2014 151


FF: What are your plans for the future?

LV: I honestly would love to continue

working and to continue challenging

myself. There are still so many genres

I’d like to take on: period pieces,

Westerns, comedies, action films, etc.

...I WAS ALSO FAIRLY CONSCIOUS OF BREAKING

AWAY FROM BEING SEEN AS A CHILD ACTOR...

FF:

What is the biggest challenge

you have set for yourself to conquer?

LV: I am always the toughest on myself

to get work, to do my best at work, and then

to get work again. With this business you

are constantly looking for that next job.

That’s enough of a challenge that we

all put on ourselves. I think, I was also

fairly conscious of breaking away from

being seen as a child actor in Canada,

and being taken seriously as a serious

actress both in Canada and in the US.

FF: You were on the “Maxim Top 100 List”

…twice! What is a ritual that you do

that always makes you feel good?

LV: I grew up playing sports.

Because of that I have always

loved working out; spinning,

Moksha and hiking

are my staples...

156

JAN 2014


...It’s just an opportunity

to not only feel better,

but also quiet your mind.

Moksha is a great way

to focus on being calm,

to just be at ease,

and still, and focus

on your breathing.

INTERVIEW WITH CANADIAN ACTRESS & ONE OF

MAXIM’S TOP 100 MODELS, LAURA VANDERVOORT (CONT’D)

FF: You were recently in two major

motion pictures “This Means War”

and “Ted” what was your favorite

part when working on these films?

LV: I was working on the ABC series

“V”, in Vancouver at the time we

filmed “This Means War.” I was lucky

enough to be asked to work on the film

for two days in between filming “V.”

Working with the well-known young actors

on “This Means War”, (especially Tom

Hardy who I had just seen in ‘Bronson’)

was thrilling. “Ted” was a wonderful

experience. I hadn’t truly done comedy yet.

FF: You were featured in two of my favorite

Disney movies growing up, what made you

not want to go that route and be a Disney star?

LV: Hahaha! It wasn’t a decision I had to

make. I did a few Disney movies as a child,

but soon after started working on a Canadian

series for four years. After that, “Smallville”

and “V” came about and some other films!

By then, I was older and moving into more

adult roles and wanted a true challenge.

FF: What do you think is most important

thing to do, to make sure that you’re carrying

yourself the way you want to be perceived

in the media?

...I WOULDN’T WANT TO BE PERCEIVED

AS ANYTHING BUT MYSELF AND WHO I AM.

Working with Patrick Warburton and

Mark Wahlberg was insane. They were

so kind. We would improvise under the

direction of director Seth Macfarlane.

It was all I could do to not laugh when

Patrick came up with the most hilarious

one-liners take after take. I just felt lucky

to be working alongside them.

LV: I wouldn’t want to be perceived

as anything but myself and who I am.

So, I just make sure I take the risks I’m

comfortable with taking, and comfortable

with the consequences of those decisions.

Not allowing anyone to talk you into anything,

being kind and real, and being appreciative

and humble, but also knowing when to step

up and make your voice heard…if necessary.

That was the toughest lesson for me.

People will respect you if you have a voice

and opinion. You can’t be afraid of that.

INTERVIEW WITH CANADIAN ACTRESS & ONE OF

MAXIM’S TOP 100 MODELS, LAURA VANDERVOORT (CONT’D)

FF: If you could describe your love

life in three words, they would be...

LV: Loyalty, patience, and understanding.

FF: You’ve been on countless magazine

covers, red carpets, premieres, etc.? What is

the first thing to do when deciding what to wear?

LV: I used to always just wear what I felt

comfortable in. As I’m getting older, I like to

take more risks. I love fashion and trying new

things. I have a wonderful stylist and friend,

Karen Raphael, and my hair and makeup guru

and friend, Glenn Nutley, that help me get it

right and encourage me to try new things.

FF: Tell us about your new show, “Bitten”,

and supporting cast?

LV: It’s honestly the most challenged I’ve

been yet. “Bitten” is based on a series of

novels by New York Times bestseller, Kelley

Armstrong. I play the lead, Elena Michaels,

who grew up in a foster care system.

She has had a horrific childhood, and was

always afraid to trust and love. She falls

in love with her Professor (Clay) in college

and finally feels at ease. Willing to trust.

She soon feels betrayed when she discovers

he is a werewolf (don’t you hate when that

happens), and bites her thereby destroying

any chance she has at a normal life.

Elena becomes the only female to survive

a bite, and hence begins the incredible

dark and edgy story of Elena’s two worlds

colliding. She tries to maintain a normal life in

Toronto while denying who she has become.

“BITTEN” IS BASED ON

A SERIES OF NOVELS

BY NEW YORK TIMES

BESTSELLER,

KELLEY ARMSTRONG.

I PLAY THE LEAD,

ELENA MICHAELS.

It’s also about the pack and family dynamic

she has always wanted, but becoming a

horrifying animal repulses her. The cast is

absolutely wonderful. We all immediately

clicked, like any pack. It’s a joy working

with all of them; I looked forward to it

every morning. We pushed each other

hard, and gave our all to the show.

Bitten already has a large existing fan base

thanks to the novels, so we wanted to make

sure we gave that loyal fan base what they’d

imagined, plus so much more.

MANABU TAKAMURA OF MINIMAL, INC.

ON THE JAPAN SHOPPING FESTIVAL

Japan Tourism Agency (JTA) and Japan

Shopping Tourism Organization (JSTO)

are jointly hosting the first Japan Shopping

Festival (JSF) on December 1, 2013 through

February 28 th , 2014. Both the JTA and JSTO

invite overseas shoppers to visit one of the

world’s most popular shopping destinations

to “Japan Shopping Festival.”

to increase number of visitors to Japan;

to raise more expectations in the fashion

industry, JSTO believe to present the world

with the concept of “Japan Made” and

“Japan Creation” with high quality stores

stores through the JSF activities.

The festival brings traditional Japanese

hospitality, fashion trends, many variety of

merchandise and unique entertainment

experiences to stores in Tokyo, Osaka

and Fukuoka offering discounts of up

to 70% off, including prize drawing for

popular Japanese merchandise and free

airfare to a number of exotic locations.

“THE MARKET HERE

IN JAPAN WAS DEVELOPED

BY JAPANESE CUSTOMERS

WHO HAVE THE HIGHEST

STANDARDS IN THE WORLD.”

The idea for the “Japan Shopping Festival”

began in September by 22 renowned Japanese

companies, the founding companies of JSTO,

a general incorporated association, including

Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings, JTB Corp., Japan

Airlines and Takashima Co. Ltd. to promote

more overseas visitors to Japan with more

than 12,000 stores participating in the largescale

interactive event and demonstrations.

“The market here in Japan was developed by

Japanese customers who have the highest

standards in the world. I have the absolute

confidence in Japanese products, which

are offered from such a market, as well as

the added value of a shopping experience

unique to Japan.

With great news, since Tokyo will be hosting

the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics

as well as the effects of the ongoing

Abenomics economic policies, the fashion

industry is cooperating with JSF for it’s first

public-private joint promotion aimed

The mission is to cover all the information

related to inbound effect and eventually send

foreign tourists in Japan to actual shops. As

a PR specialist, we would like to show foreign

tourists the attraction of shopping in Japan to

promote more trips to Japan,” said Mayuko

Tasaki, JSTO Public Relations Manager.

PHOTOGRAPHY | PHILIPPINES


Von Oneil started his career in the corporate

word as an Information Technology Specialist

in some of the most prestigious banking

institutions in the country where he was

entrusted to develop security programs for

database and networking systems to preserve

its integrity and protect malicious threats and

inter malwares.

After his stint as an IT professional, he knew

there was something bigger in-store for

him, he co-founded several start-ups such

as bidtraveler.com (Online Travel Auction

funded by Sequoia Capital backed company

- Sequioa Capital funded companies such as

Google, Yahoo and Apple).

On the lighter side, Von is also known by

his friends and contemporaries as a great

Chef for his Asian-Mediterranean fusion

cuisine - his breaded chicken in honey

mustard is the all time best seller! Now he’s

starting his new Food Stands/Restaurant

in Bazaares around the METRO. The

name of his new business is KATSURIFIC.

STYLE IDEOLOGY

My style ideology is about striking the balance

among the elements of what makes a great

photograph remarkable. It is a holistic

approach bringing one’s imagination into

reality - emanating deeper into the mind,

body and soul of one’s quintessence.

INSPIRATION

My passion for photography inspires me to do better

and raise the bar for myself. It is like AIR, you cannot

see it but you can feel it, the only reason for living in

this world – my lifeblood. My mentors Doc Marlon

Pecjo, Lope Navo and Winston Baltazar are my real

life inspirations.

INFLUENCE

I am greatly influenced by some of the top fashion

photographers in the planet such as Mert & Marcus,

Terry Richardson, Mario Testino, Steven Meisel, and

Ellen Von Unwerth.

PERSONAL INSIGHTS

I think photography is a lifetime learning, you will

never get to point where you will stop and say you

have done everything there is to do, it is constantly

evolving with times, that is why, it is important for you

have to develop your own personal style.

Your personal style should come from within your own

inner soul. You create scenarios outside of the frame

to give viewers a sneak peak of what is going on to

establish interest and engage everyone involved.

WORKING METHODOLOGY

I follow this mantra since I started photography:

“Imagine…Achieve” , because if you could imagine

you could achieve. Everything starts by thinking,

planning, executing, and making things happen.

In addition, the key ingredient to a successful

photography career is to always have FUN in

everything that you do because it matters.

STYLE STAGE CELEBRITY JUDGE PROFILE

Fashion Photographer

http://franzszony.com #franzszony

My name is Franz Szony, and I am but a boy who paints with

his camera. I approach photography from an illustrator’s

perspective. Although my technique is more modern than

my aesthetic, I deem to create a wondrous illusion that is

photo-real. This way, the viewer can believe the illustration

(no matter how fantastical) actually exists.

I blend my Neoteric perspective with my devotion to the

Rococo, in essence this becomes my mantra to create a

lush world that is ambiguous in character. An image that

is unclassifiable in time or place with a celebration of the

androgynous. My combination of traditional theatrical tricks

together with digital illustration techniques create the illusion

of a painting, even though the image is actually a photograph.

I do believe in beauty, but I also believe in the intention

and thought behind that beauty. In my work the imagery is

seductive, but the feeling will encourage you to understand

the story. Much of my work is inspired by my dreams. The

worlds and characters I’ve dreamt have influenced both

minute details as well as entire works of art...visually and

emotionally. The diary I keep next to my bed has been

filled with sketches over the years. Most people think that

when we are asleep, we are unconscious. However, many

studies show that we are more conscious when we sleep

than when we are awake. If so, I can’t help but think our

dreams to be more real and truthful than the physical

world.

If you can respond to the beauty, look deeper for the

feeling, then go even further, you can find the “space

between your thoughts.” My intention is to inspire the

viewer into this state of mind. If I can propel the onlooker

into a transcendental daydream, my magic has worked.

To elicit a response to an image requires a good subject

and an even greater photographer with a vision to share.

How do you judge what makes a good photograph? Art is

subjective. What gives the photographer an artistic eye?

Franz Szony grew up in Nevada. As the son of a casino

manager, he watched all the shows that came to town.

The show’s costumes clearly have affected his work.

He enrolled in art classes at the age of five and the legend

was born. Lucky for us at an early age, Franz realized that

he was destined to be an artist. He immersed himself in

the craft by studying the history of photography and the

techniques of other photographers then perfected his own

style that would set him apart. Coming into his own over

the years has had its ups and downs but he never lost

sight of his path. He has no regrets and thinks the word

“regret” should be banned.

With the closing of Szony’s first show in Los Angeles, and

after he finished perfume ads for fashion designer, Furne

One, I wanted to know more about Szony’s path and how

he perfected his “artistic eye”.

I like to think of my photography in the terms of fashion.

My fine art photography is my couture, and customercommissions

are my ready to wear. However sometimes

these cross paths, and my customer commissions

want the fine art, this is almost always in the form of

advertisements. My fine art photography (like couture) is

my vision completely; it represents the fantasy and the

unattainable.

FURNE

AMATO


STYLE STAGE CELEBRITY JUDGE PROFILE

Celebrity Fashion Designer

http://amatohautecouture.com & http://furneone.com

Amato Haute Couture and brand, Furne One, created

by eccentric fashion designer, Furne Amato has never

been more sought after. This illustrious creative is

esteemed worldwide in the fashion and entertainment

industries in anticipation of each lavished couture piece

that graces bodies of the glamorous. It’s no wonder it

wasn’t long before Amato’s Dubai-based designs and

face were foreseen to take the red carpet and center

stage, globally.

From an early age living in the Philippines, young Furne

was captivated by fashion. Already sketching at age

ten, he used his inherent interest in aesthetics, gleaning

appreciation from his Mother and Grandmother’s own

admiration for beautiful appealing apparel.

By 1994, Josie Natori and other foundational fashion

players took notice after his competitive win for the

MEGA Magazine Young Designer of the Philippines

Award with his Furne One line. He was Natori offered

an apprenticeship by Natori, herself, at her design

house in New York. That same year, Amato received

the first prize at Japan’s Women’s Wear Awards. All of

his exploration and intrigue paid off, as his next notable

accolade was as finalist at Manila’s Fashion Designer

Awards three years later.

In 2008, Germany’s Next Top Model invited Amato as

a special guest designer for the show’s season finale

with supermodel, Heidi Klum.

This initiative launched international response, and

influenced his repeat role for the following three years!

While International Fashion Week(s) from London,

Dubai, Los Angeles and Miami, desired this rising

designer on their catwalk, he was marked as a favorite,

bringing monumental success. This brought the

acclaim of celebrity status, as sensations including:

supermodel, Heidi Klum, and singers, Jennifer Lopez,

Katy Perry, Shakira, Nicole Scherzinger, Amber Rose

and Nicki Minaj considered his creations a musthave.

Excitedly, the brands’ first boutique in the US

opened successfully in Los Angeles (2012) with more

cities to come. Furne One and Amato Couture are a

result of diligence.

With so many talented designers it’s interesting to

include that he believes his luck was inclusive of

“being in the right place at the right time.” Either way,

it is time for Furne Amato to shine.

In 2002, the elite clientele in Dubai were thrilled as

Furne opened his first boutique. He called it, Amato.

Meaning “beloved,” it was no wonder his idolizing

patrons had first glimpses of Furne’s unique creations.

Again, Amato’s work set the stage for an inundation

of offers including Swarovski’s request for a highly

embellished bridal dress for their 2007 limited edition

book, Unbridled. This opened a collection partnership

with them yet again for its Crystalised Swarovski

Elements events.
