                                 VALENTINA
                Valentina is our new favourite discovery when it comes to models.
                Although only fifteen she is mature beyond her years. Valentina’s first
                ever shoot was for this month’s issue of pages and we thought she had
                been doing it for a long time! Her professionalism and doe eyed beauty
                will take her far. We can’t wait to watch Valentina’s career blossom.

                Where are you and what are you doing today?
                “Today I am out and going to castings.”

                Where were you born and where do you live now?
                “I was born in Melbourne, but I have been living in Sydney since I was
                four.”

                What’s your earliest memory?
                “Probably being at my grandparents’ house and picking vegetables
                from the garden with mum.”

                Are you a lover or a fighter?
                “Lover.”

                What have you been up to lately a) in your spare time b) in modelling
                c) at school/work?
                “In my spare time I have been seeing friends, and doing yoga. In
                modelling I have been going to lots of castings, a hair show, and this
                week I was asked to do a really amazing photo shoot. In school I have
                just been trying to catch up with all my work.”

Who’s your favourite photographer or stylist to work with and

and Nicola were so lovely. It was really great to work with them.”

What do you wear a) around the house b) out to dinner c) in your
dreams?
“Around the house I live in my pj’s and Ugg boots. When I go out to
dinner I usually just wear something simple but nice. I’m not sure what
I wear in my dreams though, I hardly remember them.”

What is your favourite a) book b) flavour c) mode of transport?
“Eat Right For Your Blood Type was a really interesting book. Hmmm,
chocolate is definitely my favorite and I like catching buses, but
sometimes it’s easier when I get driven around.”

What were the first and last music albums you bought?
“I actually don’t think I have ever bought an album. But when I was
in grade five, mum bought me an Avril Lavigne album haha. The last
album I downloaded was Adele 21 and I’m a little obsessed with it...”

Favourite fashion magazine/blog?
“I love Yen, Oyster and Frankie.”

Favourite restaurant?

                When was the last time you saw the sun rise?
                “I’m never awake early enough to see the sun rise, but probably on the
                summer holidays when we were driving back from Victoria.”

                What’s your favourite body part?
                “My stomach.”

                “I like to sew, so all the clothes I make.”

                Who do you look up to a) in life b) in modelling c) in height?
                “In life I look up to my yoga teacher, she is amazing. And she is only
                five feet tall, but very tall spiritually! In modeling Catherine McNeil and
                Miranda Kerr. In height I look up to my dad and some of my friends.”

                If you were a fictional character, who would you be?
                The Hungry Caterpillar, because I never stop eating.

                How does your best friend describe you in three words?
                “Shy, honest and loyal.”

                You’ve won a million dollars. What’s the first thing you buy?
                “A house in Melbourne, then I’d put the rest in the bank.”

                What are your goals for a) today b) tomorrow c) 2011?
                “Today I want to go well in my castings. Tomorrow I am hoping to finish
                all my school work. In 2011 I want to have fun, meet new people and
                just be happy.”

                                               In anticipation of the launch of A Connected Life, we took
                                               the opportunity to catch up with one of the world’s most
                                               successful fashion bloggers, Diane Pernet. The words
                                               “right place, right time” couldn’t be more applicable
                                               than with this fashion luminary. She began her famed
                                               blog A Shaded View On Fashion in 2005 (two years
                                               after pages launched!), long before the medium was
                                               an accepted form of journalism. In fact, fellow fashion
                                               week goers thought she was extremely strange. Oh how
                                Susie Bubble   things have changed.

                    Recently, whilst Pernet was in Sydney, we sat down with her to
                    discuss the global phenomenon that is fashion blogging and how
                    important it is to be given a leg up. “The only way to build up your
                    résumé and contacts is to be around people who already have
                    a network,” says Pernet. This is where we come in at Pagesdigital,
                    ready to help you meet industry heavy-weights who can advance
                    your career in ways you can only dream of.

                    Since those early days in 2005 the blogger landscape has blown up
                    to unimaginable heights, culminating in fashion blogs being one of
                    the most referenced sources on the subject. “I get almost all my
                    information online,” says Pernet. But how have things changed for
                    her? “Over a period of time people started understanding what I
                    did. I was getting offers to curate fashion, photography and film
                    exhibitions and that is something I love. That might not have
                    happened if I didn’t have a blog.” Through A Connected Life each
                    winner will be mentored by one of these digital publishers and also
                    given their own webpage within the site to broadcast their work. It
                    is a chance to hone the creative area you love, which could be a
                    catalyst for new and exciting projects, much like Pernet’s journey.

finale. So what are we looking for? Originality is key. As Pernet puts it,
                                                                          FASHION




                                ROXANNA
                      ZAMANI
Roxanna Zamani has quickly gone from the bottom of the South
Island in New Zealand to the top of new talent in the fashion industry.
Since graduating from the Otago Polytechnic Design School in
2009, Zamani has won a number of awards, including the FTV
Oceania Online Designer Award for couture. Her graduate collection
‘Incongruous’ was described by the judges as, “conceptual and
beautifully crafted” and showcased at both Perth Fashion Festival
and Milan Fashion Week, securing a prestigious feature in Vogue
Italia.

Zamani in fact completed a Textiles degree before applying for a
Fashion Design course. This varied education has no doubt been
fundamental to the way Roxanna designs; she really understands
fabric and can craft the flat into something three-dimensional. Her
signature is exquisite sculptured dresses, layered with intricate
pleats like perfect piles of paper. Zamani urges, “you have to see
it up close and have a relationship with it to see the detail and
work that’s put in them.”
                                                                                      FASHION




It’s clear that many hours go into each garment, with detail that would push the
most devout perfectionist; even more so when you learn Roxanna does the majority
herself. “Most of my work is done manually, I cut everything by hand, I edge
each individual piece of fabric by hand - it’s placed by hand and that’s how I
like to work.”

Through experimentation and research, Zamani now favours natural fibres, in
particular silk. She explains, “I often work with a simple fabric and try and do
something unique with it.” To add structure, she incorporates materials including
plastic, paper, wood and rubber and wishes she could use them more as, “these
are often starting points that lead into different things.”

Perhaps her restraint with these materials is so as not to blur the boundaries
between fashion and art. Her pieces, although sculptural, are after all designed
to be worn. “I see my collections as a way to connect art and fashion (as I’m
interested in both) but I wouldn’t describe them as wearable art. I see people
wearing them and feeling great in them.”

She has certainly garnered a fan-base, but whom exactly does Zamani design
for? “My ideal customer is someone who is creative and who likes to wear
stand out signature pieces.” Exploring opposition and balance in her work (her
graduate collection played with structure and fluidity), it makes sense her muse is
similarly a complex creature; “someone who is confident and who possesses
strength, integrity and beauty. She is a woman who is strong and soft, who is
masculine but also feminine.”
                                                                                FASHION




No one can deny the kind of press that show-pieces (like Zamani’s) attract.
However, although she is conceptually driven, she is also commercially
aware. “I understand that no one in this industry can survive doing
one-off pieces like these. Yes, they are limited by their functionality as
everyday garments.” This is something she hopes to expand on, adding,
“I am currently working on a few pieces for AW 2012 that are more
wearable and that will be able to stand as a statement piece in your
wardrobe.”

Zamani has interned with Karen Walker in Auckland, Christopher Kane in
London and also studied in Milan for a semester. She found this hugely
beneficial to her growth as a designer and credits this experience of the,
“‘real’ world of fashion” for injecting originality into her work saying, “I
came back and found a new direction and freedom in my work. This
change of thinking allowed me to incorporate all my past and present
knowledge to create something new, and steered me away falling into
a rut of re-creating things that were already in existence.” She asserts,
“It was a really good challenge.”

Unsurprisingly she cites design, objects and architecture as inspiration
enthusing, “I love clean lines and shape,” but also looks at travel and
antiques adding, “there is just so much out in our beautiful world to be
inspired by - we are very lucky!” Regardless, Zamani has so far stuck
to a neutral palette with an all-white graduate collection, seguing into a
pale blush pink for her next. This acts brilliantly as a blank canvas for her
complex design, but the queen of complex herself readily admits, “I’m
quite scared of colour!”

                                                      MR LITTLE
                                                   JEANS
Arcade Fire’s stunning album ‘The Suburbs’ truly launched the Canadian band as a
world-class act, bringing their music from the indie music sphere into the broader
consciousness. However, it wasn’t just the Montreal group that benefited from the
record’s pervasion into the world at large.

A little-known Norwegian artist named Mr Little Jeans announced herself to the
globe with a spine-tingling, shimmering and utterly beautiful rendition of the title
track from ‘The Suburbs’. This cover raced around the Internet world like wildfire,
winning Mr Little Jeans - aka Monica Birkenes to her friends - plaudits from London
to LA. “I love that song!” Birkenes says of her decision to do her own version of
‘The Suburbs’. “I also wanted a song that I could turn into something of my own
as much as possible.”

She has certainly made the song her own; retaining the melody and lyrics of the
original, but replacing the jangling, nostalgia-heavy vibe of the Arcade Fire track with
a simmering, subtly bubbling electronic quality that might be more readily associated
with James Blake, Jamie Woon or SBTRKT. It is now infused with Birkenes’ own
quiet, brooding vocals that call to mind Lykke Li, or Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon
- acts that Birkenes admits have influence on her work.
                                                                      MUSIC




Born in Norway, before moving to London - and now Los
Angeles - to follow her dream of cracking the music business,
Birkenes looks back on the days of trying to “make it,” with not
much fondness. “I’ve been doing Mr Little Jeans for about
three years, but then there were the years before that,” she
says. “Working as a waitress, hustling the best I could. It’s
been pretty longwinded, but finally worth it. No matter what
happens though, you won’t ever find me serving drinks in a
bar ever again!”

The Mr Little Jeans sound is difficult to describe, for there is so
much variety and depth in her work. ‘The Suburbs’ cover has that
minimal electro vibe; ‘Valentine’ sounds like a more upbeat Lykke
Li; while stand-out track ‘Rescue Song’ is more conventional
pop-rock affair, almost like early Kate Nash. Does Birkenes enjoy
pushing boundaries with Mr Little Jeans and playing around with
different sounds? “I think I’m always bound to wander slightly
and I don’t put too many limitations on myself, just to keep
things interesting. I have to reel myself back in sometimes
though.”

With her debut album due out early 2012, and a sly admission that
an Australian tour is “about 90% sure” to happen soon, expect
to be hearing a lot more about Mr Little Jeans in coming months.

Rafael, how important do you think it is for the
public to see the secret rituals of dancers?
“I think it is important to provide insight and
to share with the public the processes we
undergo to create dance of the highest
calibre. I don’t believe these things
are secrets, only mysteries in some
people’s eyes. Australian audiences
are very curious about such things
and when the kind of work
that we undergo every day
is conveyed through
beautiful photography, it
is a source of fascination.
Then each image is
itself a piece of art.”
                                                              ART
What were the reactions from the dancers?
“During the process, the dancers never reacted to Jez being
in the studio with his camera, but went on with their daily
routine as usual. They have not yet had the chance to
view the exhibition as a whole but when they do they will
be astonished – it is a wonderful achievement for Jez
Smith. He has really captured the spirit.”

Jez, What did you discover about the personal
journey of the dancer whilst you were
photographing them?
“There were aspects of the process that I
expected, hard work, sweat,
focus etc. But shooting
them day after day,
some of those
aspects became
amplified.
                                                                        ART

“Their dedication, incredible stamina, and commitment was unfailing
and impressive to witness.”

Did you enjoy working without the traditional lights, production
and makeup?
“I LOVED it. Although it initially presented some technical challenges,
(there was really only one camera, the Nikon 5Ds, that would cope
with the low light conditions) but once I’d resolved those, it was great
to just be there, camera in hard, watching, no client, no brief as such.
I found it very liberating.”

What can we expect from the exhibition?
“Hopefully something a little unexpected! Of course there are some
‘dance’ photographs, but there are also lots of ‘quiet’ moments. I
wanted to try to avoid the dance photo cliques.... And produce
something that was raw and emotive, whether that be a quiet moment
of reflection, a tender moment of camaraderie between dancers or a
kinetic sweat-drenched moment of physicality.”

Rafael, what do you hope the public take from the images?
“First of all I want the public to enjoy the exhibition in its own right.
Everyone will take something different but I do I hope they will take
away with them a desire to see the Company in performance as well
as a deeper appreciation of how the artists arrive at the point where a
dance work is made ready for the stage, ready for scrutiny.”

Pushing for Perfection will be exhibited until September 29 at the
Western Boardwalk, Sydney Opera House. The Land of Yes and
The Land of No will premiere in October. Head to the Sydney Dance
Company website for details.
