FashionCopious.com Beta

FC

I'm happy to share with you the new FashionCopious.com. Let's talk a little about it.

First, I've put the beta label on it because:


1- We're still making sure everything is working right.
2- We're still building up the content.

I love to have you try it out, and use the Contact page to report any issues, comments, or suggestions.

The Site
The new site is a long term view, recognizing it'll take us some time to reach our aim. But we had to start somewhere, and building the foundation was step No.1.

The concept of the new site:


- Continue to focus-on and promote the high end of the fashion and modeling industry.
- Give access to modeling agencies to share with the industry their models & news updates.
- Give readers and professionals a way to discover new models, learn their news, as well as, for members, the ability to save/bookmark blog posts, models, & agencies, to a Favorites section, for easy future access.


Three items make up the new site; and I like to go into them a bit:


The Blog
Our goal is to bring and integrate the blog into the site directly, but for now we're keeping things on TypePad. The decision was based on prioritising resources. That being said, we did build an interface on the new site where you can get a quick glance at what's been posted on TypePad. And as a member you can also take advantage of using the Bookmark feature to save the posts you like, so you can access them at a future date.

Our next step with the blog is to transfer things to, and use Wordpress. (If you're an expert in Wordpress I love to talk to you,  email here).

Model Discovery
My goal here was to gather in one place the newest and best faces entering the industry. So instead of having to visit individual agency websites to see who's new, you can come to Fashion Copious to see all of them in one place. (And with our upcoming advanced search feature, you can narrow your search down to specific type of girl and or location.) We're doing a lot of the initial work our selves, of adding agencies and models, but the site is built around giving agencies direct access to create and share their models and news updates.

Models News Updates
In addition to agencies ability to share their models, they can also share news about their agency and models, through our Announcement section. I understand each agency have their own blog to do so, but the truth comes down to volume of readers. I think Fashion Copious can help with that.


To summarize the new site's intention, it is to spotlight agencies and models. And on the other side of the coin to help industry pros discover and stay up to date on them.

Quality of information
As many know, i'm super anal about model information. At the moment, in model profiles, many details might be missing, but as with Wikipedia I think this is where crowd-sourcing is invaluable. So we're next building a quick form for readers to submit correct or missing information about the models. Meanwhile you can use the Contact form to do so, and that would be of great assistance to us, and much appreciated.

That's all I have at the moment. But I want to take the opportunity to thank you in advance, and for being a reader of the site. Of course we love you to share it, or for media outlets to write about it. I'm happy to answer any questions, and can be reached at john@fashionCopious.com

Ellen DeGeneres Turns Designer

Ellen DeGeneres Vogue

Vogue.com:


All these concepts are channeled into the collections that will start modestly enough with a capsule holiday line, then build up to a sprawling portfolio that includes everything from cheerful ceramic plates to playful stationery to rugs, bedding, garden tools, and candles. There will be accessibly priced men’s and women’s clothing that reflects Ellen’s enduringly classic, collegiate style (leavened with dresses that suggest Portia’s understated, feminine sensibility). All will be sold through the E.D. Web site (launching in spring 2015), retail partners (still to be named), and pop-up shops. Ellen’s strategy may not be novel—this is the era of Aerin, Martha, Blake, Gwyneth, after all—but her endgame is ambitious. She envisions nothing less than global brand domination, to reposition herself as the design icon of elevated-lifestyle taste. “When I someday decide to stop doing the show,” she has said, “my entire focus is going to be design.”

Style.com: Slideshow: A London Dinner for “System” Magazine’s Latest Issue


System’s new issue features a 100-page portfolio by Juergen Teller of the four cover stars Lara Stone, Stella Tennant, Liya Kebede, and Saskia de Brauw. Perfumer Daniela Andrier at Givaudan created a special scent for each of them, which was infused into the paper band that wrapped each issue. Tennant, posed in men’s briefs, expressed some concern that people might think her fragrance was Teller’s jockey shorts. No worries—it smells more like the paper of the magazine. Stone’s, on the other hand, has a nubile, candy-ish aroma—a cliché maybe, but truly the scent of a blond bombshell.
