Editor’s Letter<br />

If you are fortunate to call New York City your home, then you know us NY’er’s can handle just about anything.<br />

However, even we started to feel dizzy when Spring didn’t exactly feel like Spring when it officially began on March<br />

20th. After speaking to another Editor in Chief last week about how an issue will expose what we currently are<br />

feeling, I realized that when curating this latest <strong>Issue</strong> 4 of <strong>Breed</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>, I was attracted to stories that still had a<br />

feeling of chill and transition. We were dealing with snowstorms way past Spring’s official first day, snow covering<br />

our routes to work, donning our puffer coats when we truly wanted to shed them for lighter clothes. This issue<br />

definitely has one foot still in the dark, short days of winter while fervently pushing forward towards Spring.<br />

I am thrilled to feature some unique stories with transgender models, work from many <strong>Breed</strong> members but more<br />

importantly, incredible work from international emerging photographers like Daria Belikova and Billy Tziatas, who’s<br />

random submissions made us stop what we were doing and take a closer look!<br />

Chanel is featured throughout an entire editorial shot by Ron Beaver which was so refreshing to see the mix of<br />

vintage with the latest pieces. Anthony Grassetti’s editorial featuring a dear friend of mine, transgender model<br />

Manzin, was heartwarming to receive during winters last lingering grasp on us at the magazine.<br />

There are so many stories that to me, read transition. We are still transitioning to Spring and I think, if this issue says<br />

anything, it is about that: transition. Transition to understand and salute women, to our changing culture, to our<br />

strength to stand up and stand for what is right. We don’t just want to be seen. We want to be heard!<br />

It’s been a joy to put this issue together. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!<br />

Dre Davis is an American Actress and Model, born and raised in Connecticut! She quickly caught the publics eye when<br />

she made her appearance as a model in Project Runway Season 8! Soon after she joined the cast of the hit series Pretty<br />

Little LIars Season 6 in her recurring role as Sara Harvey! She’s got exciting things on the horizon for this year and legend<br />

photographer Victor Cesar Bota sat down with Dre to get a bullet point, straigt to the heart, insight on Who is Dre and<br />

Where to find her!<br />

Suit REDEMPTION


What drives and inspires Dre Davis? I grew up as an artist so there’s always been a constant need to create. I guess, I’m<br />

inspired by people needing to speak their truth to the point that they relentlessly find a portal to do so.<br />

How was it to grow in Cornwall, CT? Beautiful and slow. I prefer cities and movement.<br />

How did you did got involved in Project Runway? Would you recommend it to any model trying to became an actress? I got the<br />

casting from my modeling agency, lied about my height, as we do, and almost immediately got the job. It does not<br />

behoove an actress to model first, in my opinion, unless to suppress the financial pressure in building a career.<br />

How was the transition from model to actress? Any pieces of advice? As soon as I sat in an acting class, I immediately<br />

switched focus to studying theatre. I’d still model but I do recall Wilhelmina pulling me aside because there was<br />

an obvious shift in attention. But, I was learning so much and growth is addictive. My initial advice is just to<br />

study.<br />

We learned that you also write. What’s your favorite author and favorite book? I don’t have one particular favorite but I love<br />

Joan Didion, Lydia Millet, Jack Kerouac, Charles Bukowski. For books, Lolitaalways sneaks into my mind when<br />

asked this question, and Katherine Dunn’s Geek is so so good.<br />

What are your novels about? I don’t know that I can actually reveal that before they’re published but they’re dark,<br />

funny and wildly inappropriate for the average human.<br />

What did you study at Parsons School of Design? Life drawing, painting, sculpture, graphic design, art history, fashion<br />

design. They make you do it all.<br />

Guilty pleasure? Dark chocolate, which is not so bad for you, unless you get carried away.<br />

Favorite food / drink? I love salmon and red wine for the polyphenols, baby.<br />

Eternal crush? Chelsea Handler<br />

Treasured possession? My computer because it holds all my writing.<br />

Perfect date? I love going out to dinner and, considering I’m pretty socially unmotivated, that would do it.<br />

Favorite film? City of God<br />

Coffee or tea? Coffee and THEN tea.<br />

Are you an Uptown or Downtown girl? Downtown. Though, I can be boujie and hang with uptown. Just not midtown,<br />

no no.<br />

Beatles or Stones? Stones<br />

Rock or Rap? Jazz? Rock<br />

New York or Los Angeles? New York is more my speed but I appreciate Los Angeles and foresee this as my home.<br />

East or West Village? East<br />

Tragedy or comedy? Black comedy<br />

If you played in a band, which one it would be? When I was young I made up a band called, The Bleeding Vaginas. I’m assuming<br />

I had just hit puberty? So, that. As for a real band, Nirvana or Peaches.<br />

Boxing on the piers! Who are you trying knock out on the waterfront? No one, just trying to get focused and better.<br />

If you had to choose one person that hasn’t met yet to spend eternity on a deserted island who would that be? I find this question<br />

very scary, as I have a lot to do before getting deserted, so pass.<br />

What happened behind the scenes on “Pretty Little Liars” set, that every time it happened, you said to yourself, “here we go again”?<br />

When we ran out of cold brew on night shoots there were some real problems.<br />

Who are the actors and actress would like work with in the future? Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, Lilly<br />

Raabe, and you can’t even begin to imagine how much I love Jessica Lange.<br />

What can you tell us about “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea”? It’s full of strong, sassy women, as everything<br />

should be. Also, I have a fun accent in it.<br />

Is your sister a model or actress also? No, my sisters have normal jobs and babies and spouses and schedules that don’t<br />

change every week.<br />

If you had to watch one movie every day for the rest of your life, which one would it be? A movie that hypnotizes me so I forget<br />

I’m watching the same damn movie every day.<br />

If you had all the money and everything else you ever needed, what would you do for yourself when you are alone omg the daily<br />

basis? I’d get loads of massages, personal training sessions, meditation classes, accent training lessons, and continue<br />

to act and write as much as I can. I’m very much into self improvement and also massages :)<br />

Tells us something no one knows about Dre? What’s a new secret about her, she’s are ready to let it out? I talk to myself.<br />

But, who doesn’t?!?!<br />

Dre and 2018, what should we be looking for? Hopefully, a very focused individual.<br />

Any new projects? Yep, stay tuned! ;))))

T<br />

he Numbers Game:<br />

by RACHEL TOLEDO<br />

In this new age of “Influencer “ marketing, it is important when it comes to booking a creative team to not judge them by their “numbers”. There’s been<br />

a big movement of hiring hair and makeup artists for a job based on the number of followers they have. Some are authentic and in no way is this article<br />

meant to take away their shine BUT do not discredit the incredibly important number of years of experience or the number of clients they have worked<br />

with in favor of someone who may get you exposure from posting about your shoot. Many clients have consulted with me over the fact that they hired a<br />

high -ranking numbered makeup artist, for example, but they couldn’t understand the brief. And just because they do amazing makeup on themselves does<br />

not mean they know how to work with various face shapes, skin tone or understand timing and set work. DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Take a minute to have a<br />

meeting before a shoot. Get to know the people you are collaborating with not just how they appear on your screen. Also, many working artists and creatives<br />

are just too busy working on the shoot to actually spend the time to document it all on social media. As a rule of thumb, when I am consulting photographers<br />

and producers who are planning a shoot, I suggest finding someone who has a personality that clicks, someone who’s professional and is a terrific<br />

listener. Creativity and skill is obviously important, but finding your team that’s the right fit for you should take precedence over the number of “likes” they<br />

have on their social media.<br />

Looking for some GENUINE artists out there to follow? Here’s a list of some of my favorite creative industry folks who are out there killing it! Their follower<br />

numbers go up and down but do have a look at their talent, not their numbers!<br />
