Casting Director Calls Out Fashion industry for ‘Cruel’ and ‘Racist’ Treatment of Models.

In recent times, the fashion industry has received its fair share of credit for it’s efforts to improve diversity on runways and in fashion related magazines. This ties in nicely with the efforts to regulate the working conditions for models. However, there is still a long way to go to improving the overall conditions for the models who are working within the industry.

At least, this is the opinion of top casting direct, James Scully, who recently took to Instagram to inform the world that there is still serial misconduct happening out of the view of the public. Scully went on to say that he had witnessed first hand models facing cruel and racist treatment while working with some of the world’s biggest fashion brands during the Paris Fashion Week.

Could 3D printing be the future of printed clothing?

3D printing is one of the latest technological phenomenon’s that are currently causing a storm in the media. One of the reasons for this is that the fashion industry is set to start deploying it as the runway is seen as being the ideal testing ground. This alone is enough to being triggering utopian visions of seeing an outfit on TV, calibrating the settings on your home 3D printer and then hitting the ‘start’ button and printing a near-perfect replica of the garment. OK, this is possibly quite idealistic and, if we’re being honest, a fast and convenient approach that can see this kind of technology imported into everyone’s home is a long, long way off. However, what’s most exciting about this new technology is the potential to cause disruption and democratise the entire fashion industry. Start up clothing companies that produce their own lines of printed clothing could be entirely vertically integrated even if they’re currently confined to a basement – making 3D printing a revolutionary prospect.

The 5 worst football kits – ever!

Whether you’re thinking about starting a 5-a-side team or an 11-a-side team, creating or joining a football team with your mates is the perfect way to get fit and have fun at the same time (providing you like football of course!).

Being part of a football team gives you a great feeling of unity and it gives you the feeling that you’re on par with Messi, Suarez and Neymar Jr. in the bromance category – and this truly is an unbeatable feeling. Inevitably, though, this unity will arise due to a shared hatred of someone on the opposing team – and more often than not it’s for an insignificant or stupid reason – such as an uneven beard or overly hairy arms (something which definitely means that they’re an evil person).

The feeling of unity comes because of a shared love for your team. All of the players become a large family. There’s no better way to show this unity and to intimidate your rivals of course than to create your own custom sports shirt.

Movember Charity T-Shirt Ideas

Movember Charity T-Shirt Ideas:

You may have noticed that it’s fast approaching that time of the year when we need to add an additional 5 minutes onto our car journeys in the morning because we need to de-ice the car first. It’s also dark when we leave for work in the morning and it’s dark when we arrive home from work, and, for some reason, there’s an increase in the number of men walking around the streets sporting questionable moustaches.

In case you wasn’t sure why they’re doing this it’s because it’s almost officially MOVEMBER SEASON!

That’s right, November is the one time of the year where it’s socially acceptable for men to now only grow moustaches but also feel proud to have one – which is great for those of us who not only have the ability to grow a moustache but also for those of us who secretly like having a caterpillar growing just below our nose.

Don’t fit into either of these categories? Not a problem as you can still show you support for Movember by wearing an epic moustache-tic (see what I did there?) charity T-Shirt.

Adobe Celebrates the world’s cheesiest stock photos by sticking them on T-Shirts

We’ve all seen something that’s so bad it’s brilliant. For example, stock photos. You know the ones I’m talking about – the kind that features carefully set-up situations showing things like “smiling woman using computer in office,” or “well-dressed man smiles at phone,” or, maybe “man smiles for no reason eating an apple.”

It’s fair to say that these photos are so corny that they make some of your dad’s jokes look like they were carefully curated by comedy geniuses, especially as some of the images have the ability to provoke grimaces of discomfort among creative people who are looking to use specific photos in their latest projects.

To celebrate the existence of these infamous snaps, and to promote their own brand spanking new stock service, Adobe has recently selected a few of its favourites and decided to print them on clothing and other apparel!
