Though some of us are still waiting for the sun to show up for summer 2010 (okok, not me, Barcelona is doing well jeje), the menswear collections for next Spring/Summer are already out there. As soon as you show what trends are coming up next year for the season we are in now, people will immediately want to get it.
Internationally acclaimed Spanish Photographer Jose Aragon, arrived at the Hotel Me Barcelona last Thursday with his camera in hand and a desire to capture the latest crop of Spain´s most promising models from the far corners of the Iberian Peninsula. Modelmanagement.com was very please when we learned Mr. Aragon would be able to squeeze us in between his shoot in Madrid and the following day in Paris.
We’ve finally reached the summer of 2010, and all the big names are already showcasing their collections for the coming Spring, 2011. As I have been hired as the stylist for a male friend of mine, I wanted to keep my eye on coming mens trends. By the looks of it, the tone for next year looks a bit more down-to-earth, with harmonous and subtle colours combined with some strong textures in an attempt to create a flowing silhoutte.
This is the most exciting historic fashion collaboration ever, as contemporary Fashion Designers take the role of History teachers and become story tellers, who thanks to their fantastic sensibility and creativity, are able to give life to those stories through their work. The pieces seem to have morphed into this almost living entities of their own!
“Unforgettable!” “Fun!” “Amazing!” “Beautiful people, a big success, and a great night!!”
These were just some of the words used to describe the Spain finals of Fresh Faces 2010 in Barcelona, as I went about asking models, party guests, and industry professionals alike how it felt to be there and a part of the much-anticipated event.
The finals of Fresh Faces 2010 in Barcelona was not only about the models, but also the photographic talents who make them shine. We were honoured to have 3 of the best fashion photographers in Europe, José Aragón, Ansgar and David Ruiz, who were not only attending the finals but shooting the models!
“Isabella Blow fearlessly pursued perfection. Her genius lay in recognising talent in its raw state. She was there through every stage of the process, and confidently earned her place on the front row of catwalk shows – a position she maintained in for over two decades, culminating in Alexander McQueen’s spring/summer 2008 catwalk show dedicated entirely to her memory.”
Say no further. I do. I’m a bit old-fashioned when it comes to marriage and weddings. I think weddings are filled with love and joy, and they are a true representation of commitment that happens only once in a lifetime, if we’re lucky. So naturally, come the yearly Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week, I was able to tickle my fascination for weddings once again.
