Personal Website is Necessary For Models to Get Exposure in Fashion World

Now a day, there is a tough competition in fashion industries for male and female models who wants to make their career in modeling. Aspiring models who has enough talent and beautiful face are still not getting much more exposure because of so many reason.

Some of them are

1) They are not getting much more peoples attention or get limited attention which will bound their progress

2) They are keeping modeling as a part time business which does not attract modeling agency and talent agency

3) They do not bother regarding their online presence through making their modeling website or modeling portfolio.

In today’s world, male and female models small mistake or quite laziness throws out from fashion worlds. It’s a nature of people who always want new face in front of them but for models, it’s a creating lot of competition for them. So the question is how can they get more popularity and people’s attention? The answer is that they need to give much more important on their online presence. Ideal suggestion is that they needs to develop their own personalize website or make their online modeling portfolio. Both have significant difference in terms of advantage and disadvantage.

Why models required personalize website rather then modeling profile on other models site?

1) You can advertise your name through your personalize domain name. How sweet to remember your website address if it’s likes [!]

2) Having your website, you will get your own control over your web page and profile. You do not need to stick or follow others guideline. You will decide which matter you want to highlight and which not.

3) You do not required to pay monthly paid membership charge to modeling website which is recurring regularly. Once you stop paying, your profile will not display on the site. So all your previous investment will lose.

4) You will get rid of useless banner advertisement and Google ad sense from your profile pages. Now it will on your own control. What to show on your website is 100% in your control. So your portfolio gets more proper presentation to casting agency and modeling agency.

5) Casting agency or modeling agency can easily contact you because they do not have to pay anyone else to contact you. They can contact you on our own personalize email address or from your own websites’ feedback form.

There are so many website design and development companies have their specialization in models website development. If models are thinking that it’s a costly to spent money for website development then they are making big mistake. It’s not an expense but it’s an investment which is creating your online identity

Sneakers Rule the Fashion World

From the fifties black high tops to Air Jordan’s to today’s bold and ambitious designs, sneakers have been a part of the fashion world for longer than you might think. Today’s fashion sneakers bear little resemblance to their early predecessors but their popularity remains undiminished.

The first rubber soled shoes, not yet known as sneakers, made their appearance in the 1800’s. By the 1890’s Goodyear, just a rubber shoe company at the time, began making rubber and canvas shoes. The shoes went by a variety of names until they settled on Keds. It was actually Keds, once they became mass produced in 1917 that became known as sneakers. The moniker was bestowed by Henry Nelson McKinney, an advertising agent for N.W. Ayer & Son who noted that the shoes were quiet, making not a sound no matter what surface they came in contact with.

Keds that were among the first sneakers to actually be chosen for fashion reasons. Back in the 1980s and 1990s, Keds were often worn with socks and leg warmers and became part of many cheerleading ensembles. As the popularity of Keds increased, other shoe manufacturers jumped on the band wagon. As far back as the 1960s, Pro Keds used for professional sports were popular with athletes. Today, the vintage fashion movement has made them popular again.

Today, Keds and many other manufacturers focus on individual style. Pairing clothing with fashion sneakers creates a total package for the person who wants to be appreciated for his or her style. Canvas tops, wedges and even personalized shoes can make so much more a fashion statement than the sneakers of years gone by.

Converse, Adidas and Nike all have had their moment in sun as fashion icons in the world of sneakers. As shoe manufacturers began to see the power their products had, they strove to create ever-changing designs, styles and looks that would appeal to broader consumer base. Now there is something available for every individual regardless of their age, tastes and budget constraints.

And sneakers aren’t just for wearing with your jeans anymore. If you think I’m kidding, perhaps you haven’t tuned in to music over the last few years. More than a few songs have been written about sneakers or at least feature them prominently. The popularity of wearing sneakers with everything has such appeal; the idea has even been immortalized in the popular song “La La Land Machine” by Demi Lovato. While she croons about wearing her Converse with her dresses, any sneakers in any color will do just as well.

5 Top Classic Handbags In Fashion World

Handbag is always the symbol of one’s status and personal taste. In the past 10 years, ‘It-bag’ has even become a social phenomenon. Now let’s have a look at the 5 most popular original designer handbags in the fashion world.

Hermes Birkin

In the recent years, Hermes Birkin handbags are absolutely one of the most well-known and heartbeat handbags. The unique exterior texture structure, classic elegant design and astronomical high prices together make them be evergreen in the fashion stage. It seems that Hermes Birkin bags will not step down from the stage of fashion history.

Fendi Spy

Fendi Spy series bags are definitely worthy of the name of ‘It-bag’. Once launched to the public, this series of bags quickly became the big favorite of female stars, and in just a few months later it became the most common bags in New York Canal Street. The peculiar design and lavish colors, together with the ever-changing patterns, make this Spy suitable for women in the different ages. No matter it is the model with the eye-catching designer’s signature or the gorgeous and elegant black leather classic item, there is always one exact type catering to your taste.

Chanel 2.55

How can a small handbag become a big trouble? Yes, taking such a classic bag out is really troublesome. Even the fashion master Chanel had the worry after frequently losing handbags in some social gatherings. However, this is what inspired the fashion genius. In February 1955, Chanel launched this new art work which brought about a revolution (from which the name of Chanel 2.55 chooses). Firstly changing the military image of the straps, she added more female elements to the female dresses.

Balenciaga City Motorcycle

What make this piece of bag distinctive? The answer is neither the pockets which is tier upon tier nor the hand-feeling tassels, but its unique leather texture which is natural soft and even has the cupped surface. Various sizes and endless colors make fashion enthusiasts cannot help having a try with it. In the past 10 years, people’s fashion on it is only to rise.

Louis Vuitton Speedy

Adhering to LV’s ‘fashionable forever’ concept, Speedy is also in the ongoing updates all the times. After Marc Jacobs took over the brand, he especially focused on the effect of the new generation culture. To understand the sense of fashion of different cutting-edge artists, he has constantly contacted with some great modern artists. And people like Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami, Sofia Coppola and Kanye West etc. have also made great contributions to build a good platform between this old-line classic brand and the pop culture of the younger generation.

How the 70s Shaped the Fashion World

I admit it, I am an avid fan of the world of seventies fashion and costumes. I love the ostentatiousness of this era, and its blatant disregard for subtlety or elegance. Which decade can lay claim to flared trousers, concord collars and ‘big’ curly hair? And which decade gave birth to disco music, and disco fashion? Why the 70’s of course!

It’s my argument that the 1970s gave birth to the modern fashion world! Indeed, you only have to look to the catwalks and the world of Haute Couture to realise that the trend towards theatricality in fashion has its roots in the 70s. Look at designers like Vivienne Westwood, and you’ll see an extreme aesthetic born of the 1970s punk era. And there are countless other designers that also take their inspiration from this period.

But just what is it about the fashions of this era that proves so appealing to people? First of all I would say that it’s the sense of boldness and confidence. Flared trousers are a great example of this. Are they practical or sensible? No. Do they look elegant in the traditional sense? No again. But do they make you smile and make an impact? Yes!

Look at TV programmes such as ‘Starsky and Hutch’ and you will witness a range of clothes that will make your eyes pop. The main characters sport thick jumpers with patterned designs. Strangely enough these kinds of jumpers are fashionable once more! These guys also permed their hair and wore big ‘over the top’ sunglasses. Subtle they were not, but man did they look cool!

Another totally cool character from the world of Starsky and Hutch was the totally brilliant ‘Huggy Bear’. As well as bearing one of the best names of any character in television he also helped to form the ‘pimp’ look. This included one piece ‘leopard skin’ suits, canes, wide brimmed hats and of course the obligatory ‘big’ sunglasses. Hip Hop artists in recent years have helped to bring this look back to the forefront of popular culture and fashion.

Of course one of the most extreme fashions from the 1970s was punk. This was born of the punk rocker music movement, and it embodied the sense of anger and disenfranchisement of the youth of that era, particularly in the UK. Bands like The Sex Pistols helped to rock the very foundations of the political and cultural world and also changed the face of fashion. Tight denim, Mohawks and bovver boots were the order of the day, and this stripped down but rebellious aesthetic helped symbolise the energy and anger of these young men and women. And whilst the punk movement isn’t with us now in the strictest sense, it has helped to influence countless bands of the 90s and beyond, such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and the Foo Fighters.

Ankara Fabrics – The Future of the African Fashion World

We stumbled on a very interesting article, recently, by @TJBensonNG, and we were so amazed to learn that the Ankara Fabric was not originally African.

It was the brainchild of the very artistic Dutch people of the Netherlands, primarily for the Indonesian markets.

West Africans had noticed, and primed the lovely textile product for their local markets and use, after the Turks made a cheaper version of the fabric, and re-branded it Ankara, which is now the country’s capital. This decision was a total departure from what used to be known as ‘Dutch Wax Print’.

It used to be seen as an outfit for the poor, and was mostly worn by women for special occasions, and traditional ceremonies, sometime in the 1990s.

Over the years, creative West African Fashion minds have reformed the underlining concepts, and orientation of the Ankara Fabric, to reflect the typical African beauty, personality, and disposition. Today, it defines and reflects the true West African spirit, culture, and general ethics of the people, and also goes well with Western fashion products, and defiles complexion, as it fits both the dark, and light skinned.

The Ankara Fabric is also now worn or used in schools, corporate organizations, parties, Churches, and almost everywhere else. This explains how much appreciation it now has among fashion enthusiasts, and for use in our everyday life. Men have also begun to patronize Ankara wears, and it fits them just perfectly too!

In recent years, the Ankara fabric has become a dominant brand in the African Fashion world, as more African Nations, and even the Western Nations are starting to build textile manufacturing industries in order to harmonize the Ankara fabric with their own cultural exposures, social tendencies, and ethical dispositions. This is evident in outfit choices often made by great celebrities like Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Solange Knowles, etc. Previous reports have indicated a noticeable blend of the Ankara fabric in most of their outfits.

We are very lucky to find great fashion enthusiasts in this part of the world who have taken keen interest in the promotion, and celebration of the Ankara fabric, and products.

So in case you want an inspiring outfit, with great West African story line, complete with legendary ecstatic designs, then your best bet are the Ankara products.

DMG Clothing is one fashion company we know, with an inspiring story about how the Ankara fabric is changing lives and general fashion orientation of her numerous customers.

In a recent chat with one of their representatives on Facebook, we got to note how passionate the DMG team is, about creating a new sub-regional fashion brand which will reflect the daily aspirations of Africans.

We were able to share our mission and vision with them, and they agreed to display some of their products on our Classifieds site in Nigeria-
