What do we look for in a retail store?
While visiting New York last summer, we checked out many of the hip and lit new joints the city had to offer. But one such place is KITH, that really stood out. In their own words, " KITH operates on two planes - a multifunctional lifestyle brand for both men and women, and a progressive retail establishment". They "push the boundaries to deliver customers a completely unique experience".
They offer an wide array of premium products, including their own in-house label and a curated selection of multi-brand apparel and footwear. Their stores also carry special "treats", with a full menu featuring ice creams, milkshakes and cereals. This in itself completely transforms the retail experience.
So if you are in town, do visit. And let us know what you think. We cant wait for KITH to open a Dubai branch.
A new initiative, ALT TBP lets anyone request for an artist to conduct a 4-5 day workshop in Dubai, only focusing on fashion photography. Based on a voting system, that will allow people to select an artist and send a request to join in the workshop. The voters will get 15% discount on the full fees. These workshops will be for mid-to-advance level photographers and will be focusing on aesthetic, lighting, retouching and creating editorial ideas.
Its been almost a decade since the birth of the fashion industry in the region. We as an agency and our clients are still facing challenges finding the right editorial models here. Even though there are more than 3 established model agencies and a smaller market, we are terrified of shooting great stories. We are pushing most of the agencies to improve and things have become better but still there is some distance to go. It's silly to have just one good model a month.
Call it a true story, a book with images or fiction. This work is very fulfilling to the soul. Shot by McQueen's backstage photographer Anne Deniau, it says so much about McQueen's life, his career and his personality and his dark side, often seen in his work. The Black & White book of raw photos, highlights true emotions of models backstage. We keep this book in our office, if you are ever around, you should take it for a day read.
