Someone asked me how does the Polo Ladies Cup shoot ended. I realised that I only put some visuals from the backstage and you didn’t see anything about the real shoot. Therefore I decided to share all the work with you guys. Here is the result of our shoot!
Fashion & Textile Museum in association with the Embassy of Brazil, is presenting the art of fashion designer Marcia Ganem.
Marcia Ganem is one of the foremost Brazilian fashion designers, based in the historic colonial city of Salvador in the colourful region of Bahia. As the creator of glamorous 'red-carpet' garments worn by the stars of Brazil, Marcia will take London by storm as she has already done in New York. Her textiles are made from her own personal invention of the polyamide fibre. This fibre is similar to a coconut leaf but extremely resistant and allows Marcia to create garments of high sophistication, capable of a cut and finish which echo the creations of Issey Miyake.
Another interesting design approach is Marcia’s way of knitting the fabrics with semi precious stones called "xequeré". The work is done by impoverished local woman based in the area of her atelier in Pelourinho, a very well known part of Old Salivdor, providing them with much-needed financial support. Marcia also employs the disadvantaged and very talented women from Ilha da Maré, a small island near Salvador.
Enrico Macias was in Istanbul, last night. I thought he might not be able to come again in here and forced my self to go to the concert. I must say it was excellent! His scene was very simple; just his voice and his guitare. You can listen to him live, in the first video and in the second video you can feel the ambiance...
Yesterday, our style editor Ebru and I, we were in Akmerkez, to pick up some items for a new fashion shoot. %50 and %70 sales awere everywhere! Suddenly, we went crazy about shopping and begin to look for our selves. It's a job defect! You always shop!!! Here is the proof: She's looking for wellies in mid summer, there are more than 3 monts for rainy weather in Istanbul!!! By the way, I like the new decoration of Akemrkez. There are tiny dinasours every where!!!
