ICONIC three generations of beauties – Rihanna, 26, Naomi Campbell, 44, and Iman, 59 – have posed together for the first time, and the resulting pictures in September’s W Magazine are unsurprisingly beautiful.
The trio came together for a story celebrating fashion brand Balmain’s 28-year-old creative director, Olivier Rousteing, who says the three embody his style. The magazine wrote: “These women are inspiring to so many different people,’ he said. ‘Bringing them together represents the concept I’m working toward.”
With Rihanna as the cover of the magazine, the inside picture spread, all taken by photographer Emma Summerton, the supermodels and the pop star are wearing pieces from Balmain’s Fall 2014 collection. In one shot, all three are wearing large sweaters with differing black and white skirts as Mr Rousteing sits on the floor. In another, Rihanna and Ms Campbell are wearing provocative tops made of brightly colored rope, while Iman is in a more modest zebra print jacket. All three wear stacked collared necklaces.
Egyptian music is a rich mixture of indigenous Egyptian, African and Western influences hence an enchanting night of Egyptian live entertainment, Cleopatra belly dance, street food, and a fusion of Arabic music.
The elated guests comprising of Makeup artists, hairstylists,fashion photographers, stylists, agents, models and designers took this miraculous opportunity to network and explore new friends within the London’s creative industry. The networking event was exclusively put together by the London Model Academy. The young and ambitious designer is currently busy working on his ‘Egyptian Harem’ collection scheduled to be showcased on the opening day of London fashion week SS 2015.
The fashion world is constantly changing. Great minds are inspired by the most diverse and obscure situations of society, their habits, their ideas and also their defeats. International model and fashion designer Danish Wakeel was arousing to a particular emotional product of an intense research on drugs, sexuality and the dark sides of a society without inhibition. I like the brave selection of colours that Danish always brings to the menswear and his intellectual ideas that always lie behind his collections, and so would like to share his great new photos with you.
The “Controversial and Monumental fashion editorial” featuring Danish´s latest A/W´14 collection was organized by an upcoming fashion designer and stylist Lucas Bueno and his team of professionals. Without the strong contribution of all these excellent professionals and their skills and talents achieving the brief wouldn’t happen. Translating themes into fashion that are per se complex requires a lot of research and commitment.
The indulgence and seduction of the collection and the melody sang by two live performers Rose Parsons and Stanley Volk, brought an atmosphere of debauchery and playfulness on set which was easy to make all the models get inside the theme the designer wanted to portray.
Fashion is a multicultural road! Danish wanted to bring a new language by working with models of different nationalities and backgrounds. For Danish, it was all about cultural richness. Lucas gave special attention on choosing the team, from MUAs to the models and photographers, focusing on cultural richness. Studies about Sociology prove that actions, ideas and intensions are a result of cultural processes connected to the roots of every individual and based on this thought the theme was explored.
The Controversial and Monumental fashion editorial for Danish Wakeel A/W´14 is about bringing the inhibition of society and its rage of actions and emotions through multicultural ways.
