A little word from Me.

As, you might of noticed I have taken down a few  of my photos from my photo shoots recently. (athletic, cool nights and a newest one that I just finished.) Only reason is that it will be published! so, some of you probably saw the photos already so its a nice little preview that you got. I'm just waiting to hear back from my photographer which publications they will be and, you know I will be spreading the love on my blog for all of you to admire or not.... =) 

Later this month I will be posting up the spotlight of the month. As, I''ve mentioned that this month's spotlight is for the boys. I'll also be sharing with my readers about the next few events that I'm going to attend in the Vancouver area.  I'm excited to attend them since one of the events is a 25 student designer fashion show. So, its a great oppourtunity for me to scope out some new talent and perhaps feature them! Also this month will be my monthly "rant" .

 I  wanted to do a little word from me to let you all know that I haven't forgotten about you!

Publication

Being a freelance fashion stylist in Vancouver, is hard enough. Trying to find a publication that's worth a submission in Vancouver is even harder. What makes a good publication? What makes certain publications worth crawling all over,for them to show case your work? Is it the cool name? the people who run it? the type of editorials and stories they mention? What makes certain Vancouver publications worth everyone's time, when they aren't even recognized around the world. Isn't being published somewhere in europe or NY or T.O let it be online or even in print more satisfying then being published in a "Just got bored one day so, lets start up a fashion magazine website?"

Wouldn't it make sense to anyone that if someone is running and started up  a fashion website or magazine that they should have some background in fashion instead of just being a "fan". Everyone's a fan of fashion in their own way. Does going to almost every event the city has to offer  make you such an important person to know? even at the end of day everyone knows you aren't the one who decided at the end what goes into your website or magazine? Is being in your own bubble and circle of friends make you think you're "branching" out into the fashion world? Especially when you promote your website or magazine all about how you like to promote local talent in every aspect. I understand there's a lot of new and up coming, great talent out there but, at what point do you end up going back on your own word on selling yourself out by not promoting local talent. What makes certain publications worth the time and read? Quality over quantity?

At some point and time everyone is trying to be one step of another. We never really take the chance to actually sincerely help each other out. We are all nice to each other's faces. But, behind close doors we all back stab each other in one form or another. Sometimes people don't even know that they are doing it. That's why it's so hard to build relationships with photographers,makeup artist, hair, model agents etc when there's hundreds of others that are knocking at their door with a bigger and better oppourtunity.  We can all say to each other that we will be loyal to each other or show it through our actions since, actions speak louder than words. Then slowly but, surely it all goes away.

I've started to do some brainstorming... How hard is it to start up a fashion website or magazine? Besides the obvious points of; the time needed to be invested in it, the crew you need to actually do it, to actually find a crew that you work well with and not bud heads so much, and a crew that can bring something bigger and better to the tables,  and a crew that have the same ideas as you with, wanting to take it to the next level, meaning out of vancouver! But, wouldn't it be fun to start up something that just needs a few months to catch on to people, having them submit then eventually having hundreds of submissions to you in a day? Even market your website or magazine across the world. To put yourself out there instead of waiting for them to come to you? I'm just saying personally if I was to ever  start up any kind of fashion website or magazine I wouldn't go back on my word on about how and what my website or magazine is all about. It's almost like a challenge. We all can fall in and out of the main focus but, to truly stay in it and to truly live up to your word and not to sell yourself out and, to push yourself to promote local talent to promote local stores etc is a challenge in its self.

I've posted up some magazines worth the read and the look through to see what these little fashion website and magazines are competing with. Indie or not it's just a title that you gave yourself and its a choice on how you want to promote yourself. At the end of the day the magazines and fashion websites that are actually inspirational, make money,  are known around the world, and feature different artist all the time is successful.  In my opinion anyways. Being invited to little fashion shows here and there  and interviewing friends is just a another way of saying you've given up on your website or magazine.

I'll be posting up photos of my newest shoots to come! tonight is a night shoot! so stay tune.
