Maayan Keret: Transcending Fleeting Trends

You may have seen or heard of Israeli model Maayan Keret before, but her name is being buzzed about now more than ever. While the model began her career at just 15 years old, two decades later, she is still making a huge impact on the fashion world, and signing with Verbmodels will only add momentum to her quickly-expanding career.

The flame-tressed redhead walked the runway for designers like Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Yohji Yamamoto, Kenzo, YSL, and more during her teen years, and earned her name with editorials in magazines such as Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire. The fashion world was captured by her gaze and her abilities change personas with every click of the camera.

Matan Uziel, Senior Executive at Verbmodels, has watched Keret's career blossom again over the past year. In an industry where "retirement" is a word spoken for models in their mid-twenties, Keret eschews the standard and uses her timeless beauty and poise to remain in demand. From her teenage years into her adulthood, Maayan Keret has transcended the fleeting trends of the modeling world and sees no end in sight to a successful career.

A dedicated mother and a successful author, Keret's impressive recent work includes editorials in magazines such as KURV, QVEST Edition and FAULT, a cover for BLINK magazine, and a very special upcoming project with a Film Noir theme by FAULT magazine, to debut in just weeks.

Maayan Keret has seen a rare burst in career after modeling for 20 years, a true testament to her beauty and timeless presence on the page. She couldn't be happier with her decision to sign with Verbmodels.

"Verbmodels headed by Matan Uziel is a place where the impossible turns to possible. Working with Matan, I always feel I'm not just another pretty face, but am treated with respect and care and all my concerns are addressed with the utmost of professionalism. Coming back to the modeling world after so many years, it's fun to see my agent share the excitement with me, it drives me forward", said Keret.

"Maayan is deifinitely an amazing person but also knows quite a lot about fashion. I couldn't be more proud of my agency when she is a part of it. I feel the vibe and know we can make some great projects and build Maayan an even better career amongst each other. I’m really glad that I’m being paired with someone like her and will do my best to make sure she has the best possible care", said Uziel.

Matan Uziel, whose dedication to replacing unhealthy weight standards with healthy body image at Verbmodels, proves that healthy can be the most beautiful with this latest contract. Verbmodels has been adding more international models to its roster since 2009, and the agency continues to expands its reach through new contracts and blossoming partnerships with worldwide publications and fashion brands. The agency is about to establish its new website soon. Look for more work from Maayan Keret in the upcoming months and the continued expansion of Verbmodels.


LuLu*s Indie Rock Album Giveaway Launch

Lulus.com, an internationally renowned fashion ecommerce site, announced today the launch of its newest customer giveaway, marrying fashion and music with an exciting indie rock music album.

LuLu*s partnered with a host of up-and-coming bands to put out a downloadable compilation to give its customers, a small token of their gratitude for continued support of their fashion-forward, price-driven ecommerce site.

Music and fashion have always gone hand-in-hand – from the days at CBGBs to Florence and the Machine. Clothing is like an extension of the artist and LuLu*s thinks this reigns true for every young fashionista trying to make her mark in the world.

LuLu*s co-founders Debra Cannon and Colleen Winter want to inspire their customers by sharing some of their team’s favorite music on this eclectic downloadable album. The compilation, which will be given as a thank you to each customer who places an order on Lulus.com, will be available for a month beginning Nov. 2. After placing their order, customers will receive a special code with their merchandise that allows them to download the album for free. LuLu*s will also feature exclusive band interviews on their blog in conjunction with the album’s release.

“Because we appreciate our customers so much here at LuLu*s, we really want to give something back to our fans to say 'thank you' in a way that is both innovative and fun,” Winter said. “Fashion is often influenced by art, music and other creative outlets and we think a great way to continue that trend is to let our customers be inspired by some amazing up-and-coming artists that will compliment their fall fashions.”

Featured on the album are Saskatchewan, Warm Weather, Said the Whale, Light Vibes, Thao & Mirah, Ski Lodge, The Make, and Empress Hotel. Each band holds a special place in the LuLu*s team members’ hearts.

“I wanted the music to feel like that transition from fall to winter, because that's when I knew we would be putting out the album,” said Cara Fox-Galassi, LuLu*s brand specialist. “I love the dreamy, melodic feel that the beginning bands on the album have and then transitioning to Thao and Mirah and The Make who bring in more of an upbeat rock vibe.”

LuLu*s designer-inspired fashions are on the cutting edge, without cutting a hole in anyone’s budgets. LuLu*s especially appreciates the young woman who wants to be unique and trendy. And now with this new album, all she has to do is add headphones to her ensemble!

LuLu*s was conceived with the concept that fashion should be unique to the consumer and should provide exceptional value, quality and fuss-free customer service. LuLu*s fashionistas can mix and match the classics with key trendy pieces to really create a look that is unique and individualistic. Many of the items are purchased in limited quantities and often are delivered directly from the designers’ studios. LuLu*s offers an array of clothing, shoes and accessories, ranging from designer names like BB Dakota, Jeffrey Campbell, Mink Pink, Aryn K, Motel, Obey and more.

I'll Take Mine Modern. With a Hint of Nostalgia ...

my-wardrobe.com presents the final D&G collection for SS12

my-wardrobe.com, the leading online retailer of ‘everyday luxury’ is delighted to present the final D&G collection for Spring Summer 2012.

A grand finale reminiscent of the legendary D&G archive, the much anticipated last collection by the dynamic duo will no doubt leave a mark in fashion history.

Famed for their flamboyant, sexy and immensely successful main line, Domenic Dolce and Stefano Gabbana set out to launch a younger, fresher diffusion line in 1994 to critical accalaim, setting a benchmark for contemporary and sensual designs.

Heavily influenced by the D&G heritage, the final Pre Spring/Summer 2012 is a whirl of colourful feminine flair, capturing the signature alluring spirit of the D&G brand. Traditional silk scarves are expertly  morphed into  gowns, boxy tops, jackets, pants and wedges, easily paired back with chambray denim and 50’s swimsuits in the D&G ocelot print fit for a siren.

From key pieces of their infamous contoured dresses with ocelot lining, to chic pencil skirts, delicate blouses with chain detailing, bold floral suiting and decadent cocktail dresses. The final collection is accentuated by fabulous accessories too – court shoes, vampy stilettos, scarf print wedges and vibrant leather bags.

It’s the end of a fashion era as we bid farewell to D&G. It’s been a phenomenally successful brand, loved for its chic, feminine collections. This range will be a last chance for the my-wardrobe shoppers to buy a piece of the much-loved line of the Italian powerhouse that is D&G.
- Luisa De Paula, the my-wardrobe.com Buying and Merchandising Director.

The final D&G ready-to-wear, bags, shoes and accessories collection for Spring Summer 2012 is available to buy at my-wardrobe.com from January 2012.
