SHOWPACKAGE: Way Brazil Men SS11

Soo… Sadly I can’t find an actual cover for the show pack for the Men’s summer/spring 2011 roster for Way Models Brazil. Yes yes yes, this is one of the FEW packages sent around for Sao Paulo fashion week but the thing is, no matter how small it may be, the faces pack some punch. Don’t believe me… I’ve got one name for you…. Marlon! Exactly, that’s what I thought.

SHOWPACKAGE: Ford Paris Men SS11

So, why Ford Europe feels the need to have extra large photos for show packages? I’m not exactly positive but then again a larger card makes for more space to provide pictures for casting directors to pore over. And pore over I did! Releasing a package of 54 strong Ford Europe, as an agency, is BOUND to turn up at most shows(if not every one). Names like Abiah, Aiden Andrews, Charlie Westerberg, Francisco Lachowski, Michael Elmquist, Simon Nessman(OF COURSE!)and Vladmir Rotar are only a few that I want to read about during show times and when the campaigns eventually begin to drop.

SHOW PACKAGE: Ford Brazil Men SS11

So, as we gear up for the Mens’ Fashion Weeks the show packages are surfacing more and more. I’ve been holding on to this one as well and have only just posted it. Ford is no doubt one of my favorite “mainstream” agencies(I’m not sure if I should say mainstream or major), and so I’m ecstatic to be able to see the roster for the upcoming seasons. Whereas the only models of color I spot are Brazilian, I find myself not surprised and only mildly disappointed. So is the diversity problem one on the agency’s hands?

Whereas I won’t lie and say I love every face on the roster(there’s just this thing about Jesus Luz that leaves a bad taste in my mouth) I won’t deny that it’s an amazing one. Some of the photos are from the newly debuted Made In Brazil magazine, and I’m excited to see that the publication has been embraced heartily by the industry. I follow the accompanying blog and if I could would purchase a subscription to the magazine… sadly though, I operate on a college student’s budget so international magazines are a tad out of my reach. Anyway I’m excited to see who gets cast this season.

SHOWPACKAGE: Nathalie Mens SS 2011

Sooo… show packages are something that I’ve always loved to look at but I’ve never posted. There’s a few reason that they’ve never been posted… one because I wasn’t quite sure how to post them and secondly because of our 4 picture guideline would be definitely overruled. Well after considering it some more I feel like show packages are a way to make sure that you can begin to become familiar with the models as actual people in the industry and not just animated hangers. A show package can show us many things including new faces and trends in agency castings. Lastly, I also like these castings because to me they give the agency a sort of personality depending on how they decide to present their models.

See Nathalie Mens‘ show package(sadly because of the way I downloaded the pictures, they don’t get bigger… I’ll try to remedy this for the next packages).
Of course I’ve gone through and picked out my favorites and some of the models look a tad familiar to me. One that stands out of course is Shaun Ross. I think I first spotted him over at the Jak and Jill blog in Stevie Boi shades, and then because his name seemed to be in the online fashion circles I run in, I did a bit of digging. The albino model has his own blog and will be the first albino model of my knowledge that will walk in Europe if he gets cast this season. I hope that he will.
