Fashion industry thrives in Iran
 
02:47
Iranian designers fuse international and European fashion with traditional Iranian styles, breathing new life into Islamic fashion in Iran. At a rare official fashion show in the country's capital, Tehran, designers took the opportunity to display some colourful and vibrant Islamic costumes which are not only in line with Islamic codes, but also current fashion trends. While not exactly trying to put the chic into chador, Iranian fashion designer Haniyeh Abedi believes that the strict Islamic dress code requiring women to be covered from head to toe does not mean they cannot look good.

Allow me to share this avp that I made for an event presented by Zugbuana JCI here in Cebu, Philippines, called Women for Women. It was a fashion show featuring Cebu's finest women wearing the creations of the country's top fashion designers. The beneficiary was our group, The Kahayag Network of Cancer Support Groups. This avp, which was shown before the fashion show started, tells us about the journey of a cancer survivor. It is intended to reduce fear, instill Hope, touch the Heart and lift the Spirit.

Held at the Miami Convention Center, the "Fashion Of Paper" fashion show displayed the work of 15 designers. These designers were given a country and (literally) a box of paper and had to design and produce a dress from the country designated. Congrats to Lukas and the other great designers!

Can an American Girl Wear a Sari?
 
02:18
Although the Indian sari is one of the most beautiful and comfortable cloth for a woman to wear, some western women think that if they wear a sari, it will offend indians. I'm Indian-American and I never thought people had such rediculous ideas. To shake their fear, I compiled this video. ---------------------------------- Some facts about the Sari: ---------------------------------- 1. The most expensive Saris are handmade on a handloom. 2. The least expensive ones are made in the mills. 3. A sari is like a canvas for a weaver where he/she weaves the events that go on in life. 4. Saris come in 3 different types, woven, printed and embroidered. 5. A sari can take from 2 months anywhere to 2 years to make. 6. Bridal saris are very expensive. In South India, the boarder of a Bridal sari is usually large. In North India, the sari's are completely different. 7. The sari is decked in ancient history, belonging to Hinduism (real name: Shantana Dharma). It is a garment of celestial proportions. 8. In Hinduism, a hole in the fabric made with a needle was considered to be impure. That's why saris are woven. 9. Saris go best with matching blouses. 10. Sari Designers get very creative. I've once seen an Egyptian themed sari. It was beautiful nonetheless.

Lance Armstrong and Ashley Olsen meet up in NY
 
01:52
Hello on this Thursday, November 1, 2007. I'm Rebecca Field with a UPI entertainment update. There may be some sparks between cycling star Lance Armstrong and actress Ashley Olsen. People magazine says the two met up a couple times this week in New York. Sources say they were very flirtatious at a hotel bar Monday night. They also apparently got together Wednesday night at a hip restaurant. Neither of their reps had any comment. Actress Hilary Swank is donating her hair to a good cause. The actress let Oprah Winfrey chop her locks off on her show, set to air Friday. Winfrey reportedly cut off nine inches to put towards wigs for women who've lost their hair from cancer treatment. The actress says she's been growing it and taking good care of it for months now and is glad it will go to someone in need. Former N'Sync member Lance Bass is revealing his past secret marriage. The singer tells E! News he tied the knot on a crazy night in Las Vegas several years ago. He married a female friend of his... but it ended very shortly after. Bass came out publicly that he was gay last year. Country music is ruling the charts. 3 country albums topped the Billboard 200 list this week. Former "American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood grabbed the number one spot with her release "Carnival Ride." Robert Plant and Alison Krauss's CD "Raising Sand" landed in second. And in third is Gary Allan's "Living Hard." It's the first time the top three spots have been filled by country artists. Celebrities got decked out in costumes last night for the annual Hulaween benefit gala. Actress Bette Midler organizes the event which benefits the New York Restoration Project. Fashion designer Michael Kohrs arrived dressed as Elton John. Celebrity chef Sandra Lee was there as well as actress Kari Whitman. That's all for now. For more on those stories and all the day's news go to upi.com.

Erte (clip)
 
01:35
Art Deco was perhaps the most important design movement of the Twentieth Century, and Romain de Tirtoff, better known as Erte, was an artist who contributed so much to its development. Narrated by Diana Vreeland, this is a portrait of the gifted and prolific Erte, who influenced a broad range of design for more than 85 years. The career of this elegant, energetic artist spans the century and the continents, beginning with his association in 1912 with Paul Poiret, king of Paris couture. Later, Erte worked with Harper's Bazaar, providing the magazine with its monthly covers, as well as dress, shoe, jewelry and interior designs. In the 1920s, he designed for the Folies Bergere and the Paris Opera, and also for the Ziegfeld Follies and Irving Berlin's Music Box Revue in America. For MGM in Hollywood, Erte designed sets and costumes, working with some of the great beauties of the period, including Carmel Myers who came out of retirement to appear in this film. The narrator, Vreeland, is the former editor of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. Produced and directed by Tony Ryan. 28 minutes, color. direct link to purchase video: http://phoenixlearninggroup.com/product/erte/ http://phoenixlearninggroup.com

Media and culture: Sociology assignment
 
02:36
This video was made by me for a sociology media and culture class to show how much impact the media can have on women of our society. Some may think that it is hypocritical to post something of this nature when I myself am a model; however, I am a voice from within the fashion industry who is trying to make a difference. I have felt so much pressure in my career as a model to be overly thin. I feel that the constant images we are exposed to time and again can play a negative impact on the way that we feel about ourselves. Some cities in Europe, including Milan have banned overly thin models from the runway. "Madrid Fashion Week, the Pasarela Cibeles, announced last week that it was banning models with a body mass index, or height-to-weight ratio, of less than 18 - which a 5-foot, 9-inch model would have at about 125 pounds. Also, the mayor of Milan, Letizia Moratti, said she would call on her city's designers to take similar action"( n.a 2006). This is an excellent start. The more that we speak out the better chance that we have to change this issue. I am happy to say that at this time I am no longer worrying about my weight as a model. I have decided to freelance and to not work through an agency unless they have agreed to take me for my weight at the present time. Most agencies won't take me at this time because of my weight, or they will agree to sign me if I lose weight. Keep in mind that I am 120 pounds at 5'9 which is already less than I should weigh based on the BMI (body mass index). Through genetics however, I have a tendency to stay on the thin side and always have. If I am already under weight based on my height and age how does anybody have the right to tell me to lose weight? This should be illegal! Modeling has always been a dream of mine, but I am not willing to kill myself to be in this industry. "After a controversy in the modeling world over body weight, a second model has died after becoming dangerously thin. Ana Carolina Reston, a well-known Brazilian model who worked for Giorgio Armani, died this week at the age of 23. Reston was 5 feet 8 inches tall and starved herself down to 88 pounds during her battle with anorexia. The model ate only tomatoes and apples at the end of her life. Reston had to be hospitalized because of a generalized infection. She had been a model since 13 and worked worldwide" (n.a, 1996 para. 2). The constant pressure is not only felt by models within the industry it is also felt by every girl who scans through the pictures of her favorite magazine. it is felt by turning on the television or playing on the computer. These consistent images can bring girls to starve themselves, use drugs to maintain their skeleton type figures, and in several instances may even result in death. Because of these horrible circumstances I have decided to start a petition and send it to our governmental leaders so that we can also make this change in our country. It is important to be healthy; we live in a demanding society that requires us to be able to take on so many daily challenges. I don't believe it is fair that everywhere we look we see a stick thin girl (usually 14, 15 or 16 years old) who makes us feel like we can't even wear a bathing suit to the beach. We need to get realistic here and speak out as an entire team of Canadian citizens. Please take the time to review this short video and please sign the petition that I have created. I am going to print the petition and write to the leaders of our country, which will hopefully help stop some of the unrealistic standards we are exposed to in our daily lives, and perhaps, like Milan and Madrid, we can create a ban on unhealthy Canadian models as well. Thank you for your interest! References (2006). Another Supermodel Dies After Weight Loss.
