Last night was the launch party for the Pop-Up shop and capsule t-shirt collection by Galore Media in collaboration with What Goes Around Comes Around. The party was hosted by Galore’s Beauty Editor Cat Marnell, supermodel Andrej Pejic, and Galore editors/founders Prince Chenoa and Jacob Dekat.
“Galore references a lot of eras, from the fifties pin-up bombshell, to todays downtown NY glam girl. This pop-up shop and t-shirt line are a great way to bring it all together,” says Prince Chenoa, Creative Director.
Feb 6th also marks the launch of the new Galore model blogger network on Galoremag.com. The initial bloggers for the site include: Robyn Lawley, Ashley Sky, Staz Lindez, Jennifer Akerman and Andrej Pejic, making Galore a central destination for a behind the scenes look at top models, and a platform for models to grow their personal followings online. In addition to posting directly to the site, the model bloggers will be able to post directly to Galoremag.com using a #galore hashtag in their instagram posts.
“So much of what we do editorially is to celebrate the personalities of models. Here is one more way we can do that by having them tell their stories directly to our audience online,” added Prince Chenoa.
I’m still getting the hang of my new Sony NEX-5R camera that was gifted to me by Sony as part of the Hidden project. I’m creating a body of work that will be shown at the Sony store in Garden City and I’m focusing on night in the city. Here’s a shot of my friend Leo Gugu outside of Greenhouse last night…it won’t be part of the exhibit but gives you a little sneak peek of what to expect!
Is San Francisco as sex-crazed as NYC? Well it’s the season finale of VICE’s sexy series Slutever (the sex-ed you never got in highschool) in which their in-house sexpert, Karley Sciortino, hits up the biggest BDSM fair in the world, The Folsom Street Fair in SF, for some whipping-good fun. Check it out!
Sometimes space is too tight to take full length shots but thought these details were worth sharing. In general facial hair or bold lips seemed to be de rigeur for the ODD crowd.
