Cincopa WordPress plugin

If you think that the film David Bowie Is Around The World does not have some scout lurking around spying looking for talent,  guess what? you would be wrong.  The word is out and the scouts all eager to help are quick to drop a tweet, to say hey check this out.

The Dead Sea Skulls discovery took place in a manner that is so Bowie it is unreal.  It all started at the iconic hotel in London, The Savoy and many thanks to Zebra One Gallery, the office of the Fairmont in Toronto and the fast acting team of The Savoy who invited a guest to the showing of rare photographs of Kate Moss.  Three British Icons, Bowie, Moss, The Savoy in the mix magic had to be present and it was brilliantly scouted.  In a city that is rocking fashion week, Prince and his all girl band 3rd Eye Girl you would think that was enough, not in London.  These three dudes not only rock but do it with style.  Check this video out, I love the manner in which it was shot, and Riding High tell me if that is not a killer tune.  More on the band in an interview to come, here is the kick-ass tune of Dead Sea Skulls Official video Riding High.

Fashion is Girls on Film with Michael Patrick

Michael Patrick is a Toronto fashion photographer. I had the opportunity to work with Michael to get the feel of what it was like to be the lens behind the lens.

Michael Patrick is a natural artist. He fly’s by the seat of his pants allowing ideas to emerge at random which he creatively employs.

This shoot was done in Toronto with an upcoming Canadian model Jessa for Magpie fashion of Toronto. Jessa 16 years old was discovered at a water park in Niagara Falls, Ontario by a fashion scout and has all the makings of a super model.

Here you can check out the action from the man behind the man with the lens.

Do you wanna Lana Madonna? – Mulberry !

As Madonna announced her world tour the 25 year old Lana Del Rey has been having her own whirlwind few months. I said it earlier this girl can’t sing, and I would not be pushing her to do any live performances whatsoever. Having said this I have always stated she is a model and can and could be a super-star on the silver screen of Hollywood. If she has to sing let it be on screen.

While other’s may call her a star excuse me I am not so liberal with that word and she no where close to being a star, so let’s just say that Lana Del Rey took her spot in front row at the Mulberry London Fashion Week show today next to Michelle Williams and Elizabeth Olsen at my favorite spot in London Claridge’s.

The 25-year-old Born To Die singer held her bespoke Mulberry Del Ray bag in White Ostrich on her lap as she watched the catwalk in the Ballroom at Claridge’s Hotel.

So what’s up next? I can tell you because you will see it right here on My Name is Khan, that sandwich, the Del Rey and let me tell you your gonna love taking a bite of the Del Rey, it’s just going to be like Lana herself, tasty.

Liu Wen – Asian models all the rage in fashion!

From the top designer shows in New York to ads for the all-American brand J. Crew, a new group of supermodels is taking center stage. Move over, Heidi, Gisele and Naomi, and make way for Du Juan, Shu Pei and rising star Liu Wen.

This is not about beauty, like come on, who in the world dose not think Asian women are beautiful, that is a given. Having spent some time with rising super star Liu Wen, it is clear that she and I are on the same wave length. Naturally it required all the power of focus to keep my mind to the subject at hand, and not allowing myself to be transported in the everlasting state of Nirvana of a sexual fantasy.

Liu Wen and I agree on one thing. China and Asia is the world’s biggest luxury markets, and no one is going to sell your brand in Asia better then an Asian. It’s that simple.

Is there a show you are particularly excited to walk this year?
Every season of Fashion Week is totally different, so I cannot really choose one. I really like to work with Asian designers. I really like Alexander Wang, also Jason Wu and Anna Sui. But every season of a collection is very different

How did you feel about being the first East Asian face of Estée Lauder?
I felt very, very excited — and surprised. I remember when I was younger and living in Beijing, I saw lots of Estée Lauder posters on the subway. I wished one day I could be a part of that. Now I’m living my dream.

Did you do anything fun for Chinese New Year this year?
No, I was so sad. I’ve missed Chinese New Year for four years. Usually Chinese New Year is in February, but February in New York is Fashion Week and my first season doing fashion week was 2008. And this year, it changed because Chinese New Year was in January, but I was in Paris doing couture, so I missed it again. But in Paris this time, I was with my best friend, and we had Chinese New Year dinner. It was very good, but different.

Babe and strings – Lara St. John

“It is difficult to argue with such a technically dazzling and unfailingly musical interpretation.”

-Gramophone Magazine

Magpie fashion is bewitching created in a haunting manner by two women who are close to my heart, because they are creative, beautiful women that fly by the seat of their pants, creating fashion for both men and women that is alluring, enchanting, bewildering, dramatic, originally creativity from their imagination that is so Merlinish. The House of Magpie is a magical kingdom where those of rock, such as Prince, Andy Allo, Kevin Hearn of Barenaked Ladies, and members of Pear Jam have come to be outfitted. No Magpie fashion is not just for rock star’s, it also for those who pull strings, such as Canadian violinist Lara St. John, who wears a Magpie design dress on the cover for her album Bach Sonata’s.

The Strad magazine selected Laura St. John as one of “the stars of the next decade” and called her “an electrifying player, as deeply satisfying in Bach as she is bewitchingly seductive in Waxman’s ‘Carmen’ Fantasy. The L.A. Times has said: “St. John brings to the stage personal charisma, an unflagging musical imagination and genuine passion. Her two albums to date are bona-fide classics of the violin discography.”

Lara began playing the violin when she was 2 years old. She first soloed with orchestra at age 5, and made her European debut with the Gulbenkian Orchestra (Lisbon) five years later. She toured Spain, France, Portugal and Hungary at ages 12 and 13, entered the Curtis Institute at 14, and spent her first summer at Marlboro three years later. Bach Sonatas was released on her own label. Lara and Magpie fashion create a kingdom where magic is real and dreams come true.
