          This is the prelude to "Project Beauty", which explores women's views on themselves and on our cultural views of beauty. These are my own thoughts on the subject.

          • MAGIA.


            from Merve Goulding / Added

            It feels like experiencing the mirror stage, it's like the first time seeing yourself in the mirror, looking at your reflection on the mirror, like a kid, who is discovering himself by looking at the pieces of his fragmented body. You may learn to accept the gap between or enjoy the view. At the beginning, the project focused on the self-liberation and based on the conflict of freedom and loneliness. There was an effort to make a choice between the self’s desires and blending into society. But the choice can not be made, if the definitions of the words are not the only answers. There are answers more than words: experiences, feelings, beings... We can not chase for the definitions and try to put them into practice. Freedom will be found, if we truly behave as we are. So, expressing myself is the freedom, itself, to me. In the project, three medium, which are photography, sound and the human body, are used together to form the narration and they are transferred via video. The instant camera images, which represent the memories and experiences, are projected on the box’s surface to make outside observable to the viewer. The human body, representing id with the primitive behaviors, performs in the box and the box, which was stated as the performance stage, represents the boundaries of the society. The performer opens a hole on the box's surface and seeks for an answer to “freedom”. The hole is in a form of vagina to refer to the society's common perception on women and it represents the uterus. The sound includes the loops of “Hiçbir şey olmadı” (Nothing happened): the sentence, which was experienced by me and which triggered the pursuit of freedom. --- BorderBody: Mixing Cities & Identities (MECA Mediterraneo Centro Artistico - Almeria, Spain, 2013) BorderBody: Mixing Cities (Palazzo Barone Ferrara - Bari, Italy / 2013)

              Back in November, FRS launched “Your Tribe vs Your Geometry”, our very first leggings design challenge and an exciting opportunity for creative people from around the world to design their own unique and exclusive leggings! The challenge was to leave the safe haven of scarves, and put legs – and leggings – front and center, by using bold geometric shapes or ethnic tribal prints. Over a period of two weeks, over 250 designers rose to the challenge and swept us off our feet with their out-of-this-world artworks. The Italian designer and art director Ivano Tella hit the nail on the head and stood out from the crowd with Momba, an artwork inspired by African textiles, tribal signs, tattoos and face painting, which will hit stores in April 2013. Head over to the FRS blog, to read the full interview with Ivano (http://bit.ly/10LRMid) where he shares a few of his tips and tricks for designers out there. If you're a budding designer wanting to improve your technique, don't miss out on Ivano's tips and get ready to get designing! Check out the video Ivano prepared for us, where he takes us on a journey through his creative process and the story behind his Momba artwork.

                Here at Front Row Society, we love our designers and our community! Not only do we reward our winners but we want to know more about them; what makes them tick, what makes them who they are and how they got to where they are today. Sofia Brajal is no exception. Born under the blazing sun of Portugal, Sofia is a designer taking the world of design, and fashion by storm, and known for her vibrant, vivid and out-of-the-box artworks. For this Spain-based Portuguese designer, inspiration comes from almost everything—from senses to places, people, and even the most random things in life. However, when it comes to creativity, Sofia finds that disobedience is something of a necessary virtue. Inspired by Aztec patterns and their strong geometric forms, "Hype" is a dramatically expressive pattern, where geometric motifs merge with zebra print. Read Sofia's interview at the FRS blog (http://bit.ly/10I5jSa), where she explains how she came about "Hype", which will be available as of April 2013 as part of our Spring Summer collection, and check out the video she came up with to introduce herself to the FRS community.

                  Being a designer is not an easy task. It takes skills, time, effort and a hell of a hard work. We caught up with Dora Cuenca, a native Costa Rican currently exploring places away from home, who finds her catharsis through creativity, music, art, nature and good people. Some of you might have heard of Dora, and something tells us that we’re going to be hearing a lot more about her. The native Costa Rican designer is taking the world of design and fashion by storm, and she doesn't have any plans of stopping. For the last FRS design challenge 'Your Own Equinox', Dora participated - and scored - for the first time with Tropical Meltdown, an artwork inspired by fall descending upon the dense and mysterious Costa Rican rainforest. Dora received cheers from all over the world and gained a special place in the FRS shop, where her Tropical Meltdown scarf will be available as of April 2013 as part of our Spring/Summer collection. Check out the video Dora prepared for us, where she takes us on a journey through her creative process and the story behind her Tropical Meltdown artwork.

                      Brenda Laurel probably said it best - "A design isn't finished until somebody is wearing it" (remember?), and we think Alex Fernández couldn't agree more. Brenda Laurel's words of wisdom are the perfect reflection of the philosophy that drives this multifaceted Basque graphic designer - and ping pong champion -, whose innovative and out of the box artworks will blow you away. This is Alex's first time here at FRS, but chances are, it won't be his last. And, what’s even more interesting, is the story behind his Mind Shangri La and what Alex strives to achieve. So go on. Watch it. And read his full interview here: Like many other artists in our community, Alex also finds the time to make more stuff beyond the world wide web walls of FRS.
