Naked duplications: Sabrina Nait

The power of the internet means it’s easier than ever to make comparisons between the work of different photographers. Of late that’s equated to debate about copyright and copying – from accusations of plagiarism in Love Magazine to Steven Meisel plagiarising himself (if such a thing is possible). But what happens when it’s not a full concept but an individual shot? This occurred recently when…

Gorman: Prada sans bananas

When Prada brought out their tropical themed spring collection the “Prada goes bananas” puns came thick and strong. But such was the thought of many: would banana printed skirts sell?

Need to know: how much models get paid

In last week’s ‘Need to know’ we took a peak at how modelling works. This week we’re taking a different tangent: how much models get paid. Take what Vogue pays models for instance: a whopping $125. No, there’s no typo there. Yes, it’s a little amount. But forsake such work and the big bucks won’t come in: the ad campaigns, which can bring in 5…

I think this comes down to a desire to put as much individuality and creativity in our outfits as possible. To don a simple dress or a matching suit doesn’t display the same kind of flair as to don an assortment of mis-matching pieces and manage to bring them…

How to Find Investors for a Clothing Line – Fashion Incubator

Kathleen at Fashion-Incubator.com has been tackling the question of how to find investors for a clothing line. From Part One: “One of the most frequent questions I get is how to find an investor to produce a clothing line. Unfortunately, it is much easier to define who won’t get money rather than who will. In this series, I’ll be exploring the reasons people don’t get…
