Then she sends the team emails about voting and the magazine was partnering up with headcount so they can get people to vote so they send us a t-shirt and clipboard and a mask saying vote so we could tell them why we vote. in which I did puls it was also an article on their website.  It was fun to do that and make people aware that they need to be registered to vote.

It’s the second we of school and I had an interview last week for an internship for a magazine. The editor emailed me for an internview and she asked me alot of questions about me and what do, she also asked me to send her some sample of my work and I did and she liked it. She told me she would get back to me next week. But next week came and she didn’t get back to me so I waited till wednesday to see if she would and she still havent gotten back to me, so I send a follow-up email and she was happy that I reached out to her becuase she was busy that week and forgot and  I landed my first internship at a magazine called Jejune magazine, it deals with fashion, beauty, and social issues that are going on in the world. I send her the forms that needed to fill out and she filled it out and then she asked me what days and hours I could work, I told her Monday, Tuesday, and Friday and 20 hours she said that fine and I would start on Monday, she also gave me forms that I would need to fill out. I was so happy that I landed this internship because I really wanted this one the most out of all the internships that I have applied to. That follow up email really helped because I thought I didn’t get the internship. Something told me to email her because you never know how busy someone is.

Its the first day of the fall semester and my first time taking an internship class for my major. We are asked to find an internship that we like but also look at once that we didn’t like. The teacher gave us a couple of internships to look at and apply to. I applied to the ones that I liked and then I also applied to the ones that I looked at my self. It was hard applying to internships because you want one that you like but you also need to look at the ones that don’t fit what you want in an internship. I kept on looking and looking but still, no one has gotten back to me but I didn’t give up.

Gianni Versace “Giovanni Maria Versace”) was born on December 2, 1946 in the industrial town of Reggio di Calabria, in southern Italy. His parents, Antonio, an appliance salesperson, and Francesca, a dressmaker and clothing store owner, had three children-Santo, Gianni, and Donatella. Gianni Versace spent much time in his mother’s shop as a child. He watched her make clothes and admired the chic women who came into the shop. He knew at a young age that he would become a fashion designer. Versace also drew inspiration from the area where he lived. It was stated in Ruta, Francesco. “The Versace Logo – History and Evolution.” Museo Del Marchio Italiano, www.museodelmarchioitaliano.com/route1/versace.php. ,He often wandered among the ancient Greek and Roman ruins, which would later provide him with themes for his clothing. Although he loved clothes, art, and music, Versa

ce studied architectural drafting. At the age of 18, while he was in school, he also worked for his mother as a buyer, going to fashion shows throughout Europe.
He started designing clothes when he was 22. A local garment maker hired him to design a collection that was sold in Francesca Versace’s store. Fashion models from Rome and Milan came to southern Italy to perform in runway shows. Soon Versace’s name was heard in Milan, the center of Italian fashion.In Story of the Versace Medusa Head Logo ,Admin, Joe – LMW. “The History of Versace and Their Logo Design.” LogoMyWay Blog, 14 Sept. 2018, blog.logomyway.com/history-of-versace-logo-design/. it was stayed that “Gianni Versace’s incarnation of Medusa is based on a more alluring representation of the legendary mortal, where Medusa is suggestive of power, strength and beauty that constitutes a propitious sense of the mythology. The Versace Medusa head, as it appears in the brand’s logo, is an expression of Versace’s vision: she encompasses Versace’s taste for tradition and classical nuance along with his desire to astonish audiences with designs that are striking in their brilliance, originality and style.”

Given that Gianni Versace was a designer first and a businessman second, it’s unsurprising that he would choose to design his own logo. Growing up in Rome, Gianni Versace was heavily influenced by the Greek artwork that is common in the area. In fact, Gianni Versace claimed that the inspiration for the Versace logo came from artwork on the floor of the ruins in Rome that he and his siblings used to play on. Kramer, Alix. “THE TRUTH BEHIND FASHION LOGOS.” STITCH, STITCH, 9 May 2016, www.stitchfashion.com/home//the-truth-behind-fashion-logos.Gianni said that he chose Medusa specifically because of the way that she made people fall hopelessly in love with her with no chance of ever going back, and he hoped that his company would have the same effect on the people who purchased Versace products.I love the idea of this logo because the outfit fit the name of the logo . Versace flew north to Milan on February 5, 1972. Salvatore Chiodini and Ezio Nicosia of the Florentine Flowers clothing mill had asked Versace to hurry there to design a collection that had to be rushed. Versace designed some “instant” summer wear, which was so successful th

at he earned not only his four million lira wage, but also a Volkswagen convertible. He then designed Florentine Flowers’ fall and winter collections.During the early 1970s, “Made in Italy” clothing was just beginning to surface. Milan had just become the fashion capital and was the logical place for the emerging ready-to-wear industry. Chiodini and Ezio Nicosia’s hiring of Versace marked a turning point in the fashion industry. They realized that clothes could not continue to be anonymous. Increasingly sophisticated buyers demanded a personal touch.

The work for Florentine Flowers was Versace’s first independent assignment. Shortly thereafter he designed for De Parisini of Santa Margherita. In 1973, Versace designed women’s ready-to-wear clothing for Callaghan, known for its knitwear and Genny, which featured leather and suede. In 1974, Versace created and developed his own line-Complice. Although he wasn’t yet working under his own name, Versace already had his own label. Under the Complice name, Versace designed an all-leather collection. He was one of the few designers to feature leather at this time.
In 1976, Santo Versace, Gianni’s older brother, left his management consultant’s practice in Reggio di Calabria and moved to Milan. Santo had earned a degree in business administration from the University of Messina in 1968. O’Donnell, Tanya. “Versace Logo Design History and Evolution.” LogoRealm.com, 13 Feb. 2017, logorealm.com/versace-logo/.stated that He and his designer brother set out to create the Gianni Versace label. In 1977, Donatella Versace Beck joined the business. Her husband, Paul Beck, also worked for the company, overseeing the menswear line. At the beginning of 1978, the company opened its first Versace shop in Via Spiga, Milan, but it sold only Genny, Callaghan, and Complice lines as Versace’s first fall women’s collection had not yet been released. Versace’s first

signature collection was presented in March 1978. His first menswear collection followed in September. The collection was characterized by a stylish nonchalance and the use of pastel colors.Versace decided to remain independent, becoming one of the few big labels in control of the entire product cycle, from design to retailing. Creative and marketing operations were handled through the company. On the manufacturing side, the company had a controlling interest in its production facility. Control of manufacturing was necessary in order to monitor quality and image. Eighty percent of the styles that reached the runway were produced by Alias. Retailing through boutiques was handled directly for image purposes in Paris, London, New York, Madrid, and Milan or through exclusive franchising and multi-label boutiques. To smooth distribution, buyers viewed the collections and placed their wholesale orders out of the company’s Milan showroom. Retail operations were franchised.

In 1979, Versace, who was always greatly concerned with his image, began a collaboration with the American photographer Richard Avedon. In 1982, Versace won the first of a series of awards, “L’Occhio d’Oro,” (Golden Eye) for the best fashion designer of the 1982-83 fall/winter collection for women. “Story of the Versace Medusa Head Logo .” Gevril Group, gevrilgroup.com/versace/gianni-versace-medusa-logo/. stated that “In this collection he displayed his famous metal garments, now a classic feature of his fashion.” His metal mesh dress was inspired by the punk fashions he saw in London in 1980. To develop the mesh material, Versace worked with German engineers. In la

ter collections, metal dresses were made in bright colors. In the 1980s, Versace introduced another technological innovation, the bonding of leather to rubber using lasers
In the book Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History, journalist Maureen Orth claimed that Versace had the AIDS virus when he was murdered. The Versace family won a legal battle in 1998 to exclude the designer’s medical history from the police report on the crime. The family called the allegation in Orth’s book an invasion of privacy and a “scurrilous attack on the reputation of someone who was a victim of a horrible crime and is not here to defend himself.”Robin Givhan wrote of Versace in the Washington Post, “Designer Gianni Versace is being mourned by the fashion industry as a fallen titan. Before Versace, there were no supermodels, no celebrities at shows and in advertising, no screaming fans. Fashion was not entertainment, it was merely clothes. Over time, his work was celebrated not only in fashion annals for its brashness but also in museums because of the ways it reflected the culture and re-energized the Old World artistry of the seamstress of the couture. Versace understood the importance of marketing. He loved celebrities and knew that they not only attracted the attention of the press, but they also helped to set trends.”.I think that gianni is very gifted person who’s fashion design is very good , i would love to be like him one day .

Who is Karl ?

Karl Otto Lagerfeld well know as Karl Lagerfeld was born in Hamburg, Germany on september 10 1933 to Otto Lagerfeld and Elisabeth Lagerfeld. His father owned a company that produced and imported evaporated milk; while his maternal grandfather, Karl Bahlmann, was a local politician for the Catholic Centre Party. His family belonged to the Old Catholic Church. When Lagerfeld’s mother met his father, she was a lingerie saleswoman from Berlin. His parents married in 1930.

Lagerfeld was known to misrepresent his birth year, claiming to be younger than his actual age, and to misrepresent his parents’ background. For example, he claimed that he was born in 1938 to “Elisabeth of Germany” and Otto Ludwig Lagerfeldt from Sweden. These claims have been conclusively proven to be false, as his father was from Hamburg and spent his entire life in Germany, with no Swedish connection.There is also no evidence that his mother Elisabeth Bahlmann, the daughter of a middle-class local politician, called herself “Elisabeth of Germany”. He was known to insist that no one knows his real birth date. In an interview on French television in February 2009, Lagerfeld said that he was “born neither in 1933 nor 1938”.

In April 2013, he finally declared that he was born in 1935. A birth announcement was, however, published by his parents in 1933, and the baptismal register in Hamburg also lists him as born in that year, showing that he was born on 10 September 1933.Bild am Sonntag published his baptismal records in 2008 and interviewed his teacher and a classmate, who both confirmed that he was born in 1933. Despite that, Karl Lagerfeld announced publicly that he was celebrating his “70th birthday” on 10 September 2008, despite actually turning 75.His older sister, Martha Christiane “Christel”, was born in 1931. Lagerfeld had an older half-sister, Thea, from his father’s first marriage. Lagerfeld lived in Paris with his cat Choupette before his death. His family name has been spelled both Lagerfeldt with a “t”and Lagerfeld. Like his father, he used the spelling Lagerfeld, considering it to “sound more commercial”.

His family was mainly shielded from the deprivations of World War II due to his father’s business interests in Germany through the firm Glücksklee-Milch GmbH.His father had been in San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake.As a child, he showed great interest in visual arts, and former schoolmates recalled that he was always making sketches “no matter what we were doing in class”. Karl lagerfeld once told interviewers that he learned much more by constantly visiting the Kunsthalle Hamburg museum than he ever did in school. His greatest inspiration came from French artists, and he claimed to have only continued school in order to learn the French language so that he could move there.Karl finished his secondary school at the Lycée Montaigne in Paris, where he majored in drawing and history.
In 1955, after living in Paris for two years, Lagerfeld entered a coat design competition sponsored by the International Wool Secretariat. He won the competition and befriended Yves Saint Laurent, and was soon after hired by Pierre Balmain. He worked as Balmain’s assistant, and later apprentice, for three years.
Lagerfeld in 1958 became the artistic director for Jean Patou. In 1964, he went to Rome to study art history and work for Tiziano but was soon designing freelance for a multitude of brands, including Charles Jourdan, Chloé, Krizia, and Valentino.In 1967, he was hired by Fendi to modernize their fur line. Lagerfeld’s innovative designs proved groundbreaking, as he introduced the use of mole, rabbit, and squirrel pelts into high fashion. Lagerfeld remained with Fendi until his death.In the 1980s, Lagerfeld was hired by Chanel, which was considered a “near-dead brand” at the time since the death of designer Coco Chanel a decade prior. Lagerfeld brought life back into the company, making it a huge success by revamping its ready-to-wear fashion line.Lagerfeld integrated the interlocked “CC” monograph of Coco Chanel into a style pattern for the House of Chanel. In 1984, a year after his start at Chanel, Lagerfeld began his own eponymous “Karl Lagerfeld” brand. The brand was established to channel “intellectual sexiness”.
Karl Lagerfeld, in 1984 when he started his own company he was , telling Vogue, “I’ve not been dreaming all my life to have my name over a shop. Now, we’ll put it there because it’s the right moment to do it; and I made this name, why not use it?” Lagerfeld sold the brand to the Tommy Hilfiger group in 2005. He remained its chief creative and was directly involved in the design process. In 1993, US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour walked out of his Milan Fashion Week runway show, when he employed strippers and adult-film star Moana Pozzi to model his black-and-white collection for Fendi.
Also with his design talents, Lagerfeld was also a photographer and filmmaker, and regularly brought Chanel’s heritage to life through film and imagery; he also shot and creatively directed all of Chanel’s advertising.In 2002, Lagerfeld asked Renzo Rosso, the founder of Diesel, to collaborate with him on a special denim collection for the Lagerfeld Gallery.The collection, Lagerfeld Gallery by Diesel, was co-designed by Lagerfeld and then developed by Diesel’s creative team, under the supervision of Rosso. It consisted of five pieces that were presented during the designer’s catwalk shows during Paris Fashion Week and then sold in highly limited editions at the Lagerfeld Galleries in Paris and Monaco and at the Diesel Denim Galleries in New York and Tokyo.
During the first week of sales in New York, more than 90% of the trousers were sold out, even though prices ranged from $240 to $1,840. In a statement after the show in Paris, Rosso said: “I am honored to have met this fashion icon of our time. Karl represents creativity, tradition and challenge, and the fact that he thought of Diesel for this collaboration is a great gift and acknowledgement of our reputation as the prêt-à-porter of casual wear”.
December of 2006, Lagerfeld announced the launch of a new collection for men and women dubbed K Karl Lagerfeld, which included fitted T-shirts and a wide range of jeans.[33] In September 2010, the Couture Council of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology presented Lagerfeld with an award created for him, The Couture Council Fashion Visionary Award, at a benefit luncheon at Avery Fisher Hall, in New York City.[34] In November 2010, Lagerfeld and Swedish crystal manufacturer Orrefors announced a collaboration to design a crystal art collection. The first collection was launched in spring 2011, called Orrefors by Karl Lagerfeld.
In Palm Beach Modern Auctions announced that many of Lagerfeld’s early sketches for the House of Tiziani in Rome would be sold.
Lagerfeld and investments enterprise Dubai Infinity Holdings signed a deal to design limited edition homes on the island of Isla Moda. A feature-length documentary film on the designer, Lagerfeld Confidential, was made by Vogue in 2007. Later in the year, Lagerfeld was made the host of the fictional radio station K109—the studio in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV.

In 2008, he created a teddy bear in his likeness produced by Steiff in an edition of 2,500 that sold for $1,500. and has been immortalized in many forms, which include pins, shirts, dolls, and more. In 2009, Tra Tutti began selling Karl Lagermouse and Karl Lagerfeld, which are mini-Lagerfeld’s in the forms of mice and finger puppets, respectively. The same year, he lent his voice to the French animated film, Totally Spies! The Movie.

Later in life, Lagerfeld realized one of his boyhood ambitions by becoming a professional caricaturist from 2013, his political cartoons were regularly published in the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.Lagerfeld with Hermann Bühlbecker, Prince Albert II and Charlene, Princess of Monaco (2011)
In 2013, he directed the short film Once Upon a Time… in the Cité du Cinéma, Saint-Denis, by Luc Besson, featuring Keira Knightley in the role of Coco Chanel and Clotilde Hesme as her aunt Adrienne Chanel. In June 2016, it was announced that Lagerfeld would design the two residential lobbies of the Estates at Acqualina, a residential development in Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach.Lagerfeld also collaborated with Carpenters Workshop Gallery launched an art collection of functional sculptures titled Architectures. Sculptures were made of Arabescato Fantastico, a rare vibrant white marble with dark gray veins and black Nero Marquina marble with milky veins. Inspired by antiquity and referred to as modern mythology the ensemble consists of gueridons, tables, lamps, consoles, fountains and mirrors.
