ROCKY CHAINS.jpg

Rocky is an Avant Garde fashion designer.

“Feisty, unapologetic, insomnolence and YES, controversial. Like most others, I started from scratch. I was kid back then trying to make it through this harsh world, and a much harsher fashion scene. But with the help of the almighty, a mentor and off course, much hard work, I finally made it. I’m a fashion rebel which just mirrors my personality. I don’t think of things for the present, it always has to be in the future, which also helps me to be Avant-Garde. I’m a person who really wants to respect everyone and every culture, but unfortunately, I ended up breaking all the Taboos. I am most of the time a person enjouée, and I always make people laugh, but in the other hand, I fear crowds and most importantly, I love to surprise people.” – Rocky Gathercole , Metrovelvet

ecco-bella-mist-on-toner

Since 1992 Ecco Bella has been a natural beauty pioneer with innovation that sustains our beauty, our health and the planet. Their formulas are their own unique creations that are inspired by and shared with savvy beauty experts.

Skin Care. The Reset Button For Younger Looking Skin.

The only one of its kind, Ecco Bella Skin Care with VitaminCells is both anti-aging and anti-blemish. The formula contains trillions of microspheres that deliver the world’s most powerful skin vitamins deep into the skin to protect and rejuvenate it from stress, sun and environmental aging.

Body Lotion. The 3000 Year Old Beauty Secret That’s Still Going Strong.

Unlike most body lotions that contain a high content of water, Ecco Bella Herbal Body Lotions have replaced the H2O with nourishing aloe vera. This exclusive water-free formula transforms dry, irritated, flaky skin into silky suppleness for hours after other lotions have worn off.

Makeup. Letting Beauty Blossom Naturally.

The same delicate flower wax coating that protects flower petals from the wind and sun is infused into Ecco Bella FlowerColor Make Up. The pigmented powders beloved by make up artists create a protective layer that keeps natural moisture at bay so the look stays fresher, longer.

CFDA discusses race issue in fashion

Blk White Models VMoore

Though strides have been made in recent years to address the lack of colour on the runways, race remains a touchy subject within the fashion industry.

In an effort to tackle the issue head on, the Council of Fashion designers of America (CFDA) held a panel discussion in New York recently on the subject led by industry activist Bethann Hardison. With heavyweights like Prabal Gurung, Edward Emninful, casting director Anita Britton, Elle’s Samira Nasr and Laird+Partners’ Hans Dorsinville participating in the conversation, the scene was set for a lively exchange, through the resulting candid manner in which the talk played out.

“It has been something that concerns me as I grew up in the industry,” Hardison, a pioneer of diversity in fashion said at the discussion, according to a blog on the CFDA website.

“The fashion industry has struggled a great deal with diversity,” the former model added. “If television can be diversified, so can we.”

Hardison pointed to the late 1980s and early 1990s as a moment in fashion when the ethnic makeup of modeling began to diversify, but that didn’t last long, prompting Naomi Campbell and Talley to approach her with the plea to champion change. The first town hall meeting on the topic was held in 2007.

A takeaway was how different people have different takes on diversity, which can range from models and designers to age and size.

Bitton, a native of England, recalled how, when she started out back home, “It wasn’t a question of race but class. I came to New York very neutral and green. There’s a lot to be said for the word inclusive.”

Enninful said that when he plans a shoot, he looks for a character that fits the concept. “Beauty for me is beauty — whether it’s black or it is Asian, it doesn’t matter for me. I only use whoever is right for the story.”

Dorsinville said there is a “continuum” from runway to advertising—when it’s a mass brand, there is an opportunity to create a campaign feature a diverse group of multiple models, whereas a designer may just be looking for a face – a muse – to represent the brand, limiting options.

Gurung added that “Race is an issue that is not just in fashion. We need to address that immediately. As a designer, I want to work with the best girls, who are the best girls for me. Sometimes, an agent says ‘If you want this black girl, you have to use this white girl,’ whom I may not like.”

“Diversity, not just in race but also age and size, is very important to me,” he added.

Nasr, who is Lebanese and Trinidadian, said the issue of diversity reaches beyond models, and includes the designer community and other professional fashion environments. Addressing the audience, which also included models of diverse backgrounds and modeling agents, she noted, “This is most colorful room I ever seen in the fashion industry, and I want to say if we want to have change, we need to grow this room.”
