Run­way Sto­ries

DA MAN - Style - - Contents - ronald liem, Pub­lisher/ed­i­tor-in-Chief

When you browse through the pages of this mag­a­zine and see a French model pos­ing in Bali or an Amer­i­can model in the mid­dle of the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame, sit­ting near one the stars, you can’t help but won­der at how ex­cit­ing the life of a top model can be. But that’s only part of the story. DAMAnStyle is, and has al­ways been, as much about fash­ion as it is about the peo­ple that are the lit­eral faces of fash­ion.

So, while we talk about the run­ways of Paris and Milan, new York and London, the main fea­tures of this is­sue—that is, the in­ter­views with our fea­tured models—give us an amaz­ing per­spec­tive of what hap­pens be­fore the run­ways come to life and be­fore the cam­eras start shoot­ing. Jacob Bixenman, for one, talks about the cast­ing process and the ins-and-outs of a ma­jor run­way show like the one held by Dolce & Gab­bana. David Friend, mean­while, has a story about how a sin­gle run­way show can act as a ma­jor turn­ing point for one model and one brand.

Guess cam­paign star Gui Fedrizzi has an­other sort of story; one fea­tur­ing paint­ings and poetry—the other half of the clas­si­cally-hand­some Brazil­lian model. Mean­while, Aurélien Muller, who graced the pages of the very first DAMAnStyle and now ap­pears on the cover, has a much more philo­soph­i­cal at­ti­tude to­wards the craft of mod­el­ing and read­ily chats about the less glam­orous facets of mod­el­ing. Then we also have nic Thompson, also on his sec­ond ap­pear­ance in our pub­li­ca­tion, who gives us a per­fect ex­am­ple of “keeping it real” amid the glam and glamor of fash­ion.

In short, male models, one of the most mis­un­der­stood pro­fes­sion­als on the planet, of­ten har­bor some of the best life sto­ries—both on and off the run­ways. That is also why we try to high­light the models in our reg­u­lar col­umns through behind-the-scene videos ded­i­cated to them as well as those ap­pear­ing in this season’s ma­jor fash­ion campaigns and run­way shows.

Speak­ing of which, there are, of course, our usual fash­ion guides, cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from this season’s must-have Essentials, in-depth Know-How guides, the most Fre­quently Asked Ques­tions about styling and much, much more. Also, don’t for­get to com­plete your ex­pe­ri­ence by vis­it­ing our web­site and fol­low­ing us on so­cial me­dia for ex­clu­sive on­line-only con­tent.
