Hey guys, I was just wondering if i could have help in finding editorials in the same camera style and concept style as Vogue Italia July 2000 with Hannelore Knuts. I really like this cinematic style in the pictures, I just cant find any more research that is in the similar vein to that editorial.

It might help if you posted a link to the actual editorial ... so members can see it.

I am much more interested also in the indoor shoots in the house and some of the black and white shots compared to the portrait studio shots for inspiration.

This isn't a question regarding homework but rather a suggestion for those who are looking for resources for fashion related schoolwork. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has begun uploading some of their out of print books- which includes many from The Costume Institute. I think it's a pretty great resource, they have books spanning different era's (like the Victorian) designers (Dior), and topics (such as American sportswear). And I have a feeling that they will continue to update this list of books- anyways, happy browsing!

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the marketing strategies Yves Saint Laurent used while at Dior..? (obviously for my marketing class, and for some reason can't find much :-( )
Thank you in advance!

Jewelry Rental With Option to Buy?
Hello fashionistas.

I work with a high end jewelry rental company preparing to launch in a couple of weeks and I've been meaning to saunter in here and gauge thoughts on the following: I know sites such as Adorn and Rent the Runway are sort of covering this market but what we're launching is jewels and timepieces on a whole new level. I've read that jewelry rental is a waste of money but would you feel the same if this was membership based and a portion of your rental fees allowed you points toward a purchase; something you just couldn't part with? You could even rent items until you find something you love. Just to give you an idea of inventory, we are talking Chopard, Judith Ripka, A.Link, Chanel, Breitling, Piguet, etc. I'd love some opinions!

'The Dream Market'; Gays, Lesbians and the Fashion Industry
Hello all,

For my final research project on my international fashion marketing course I am undertaking a study into the Homosexual Market.

To begin with I want to present a short timeline of the writings on this subject and then move into how this market is catered for in today's industry.

I would appreciate opinions on matters such as advertising and brands etc. Or anything you think deserves research and coverage.

I am at the beginning of this project so all ideas are welcome

Particularly with advertising do any brands come to mind? So far I have looked at American Apparel, D&G and, of course, Levi's.

Frankie Morello, Dolce & Gabbana, dSquared2, Abercrombie & Fitch, Sisley, Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, etc, have had at least homosexual undertones in past campaigns, it tends to be an undertone because though these brands obviously want to cater for the gay population they don't want to make it irrelevant to the bigger group of heterosexual potential consumers.

Here are some other ads featuring gay people:

Rayban "Never hide" campaign (article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1456315.html )


HUFFINGTONPOST.COM


Diesel (article: http://www.ohlalaparis.com/ohlalapar...s_diesel_.html )


OHLALAPARIS.COM


Armani Exchange


GAYGUIDETORONTO.COM


The Kooples


LPMAGAZINE.FR


As a man who happens to be homosexual, I hate the idea of an "homosexual market". I feel part of the mens market, not part of a kind of "niche market". Indeed, I do not think your sexuality defines what you buy (with a few exceptions like Aussiebum underwear and the likes). And I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying the same products as any other guy who takes care of what he wears and likes fashion.

Moreover, I tend to consider ads featuring homosexual rather unappealing since they mostly seem to be here to provoke. IMO, only The Kooples managed to do something that didn't look too forced or try-hard.

In conclusion, two guys kissing will definitely not make me buy products for a brand. Although, I must say I'm much more keen on subtle "homo-appealing" ads like

A&F? Surprising, will definitely look into this one. The more I look at certain ad images the more it seems as if the 'mainstream' wouldn't even notice the reference. Though there are some polar opposite ads where the message is blatant, yet I can't help but feel that this is just for the shock factor and the buzz that comes with it.

I'd love to know if any brands have been boycotted for their homosexual referencing.

Thanks for your thoughts

DSquared2, Tom Ford, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana have all had specific advertising towards the gay market. I don't think too many brands will cater specifically to the homosexual market because it isn't significant enough as of yet. Most gay men are seek the same imagery in advertising as straight men, to look attractive, to look intelligent and or to look expensive. If your a very effeminate man that your mostly like stimulated by advertisements that cater to a woman. I think the same goes for lesbians and straight women. I think its probably a waste to produce separate advertisements for homosexual audiences.

Just my 2 cents
