Casting??

Casting is often a big wonder to newbys or non-pro... But it's simply a meeting where the modeling agency sends all the models who suit the client briefing, in order to meet all the people involved in the models selection (photographer, designer, show director etc.).
Here is a small video illustration about how it really does take place:

We love Olivia Hainaut!

Olivia is one of our favorite addresses in Brussels. She is stylist, as a matter of fact, a real ARTIST, and designs exquisite and very exclusive accessories. Scarves, bracelets and necklaces, each piece is handmade and a real piece of art.
Olivia definitely gives nobility back to art crafted luxury goods. She just opened her own atelier-boutique. Amélie and Stéphanie take you there in this video:

Charlotte goes to Greece

It is always good to see a new face flying away to Athens; especially when the requesting agency is 'Nothing But People'. You then know there is a great editorial potential! Let's wish all the best to Charlotte who is leaving tomorrow!


'Nothing But People' was convinced about representing her after seeing this short interview:

Lisa's Secrets

With the whole team at the agency, brand new servers and requests pouring in, we feel holiday time is over.
Everyone at the booking table grabbed as much sun as possible. The one who wins the suntan contest this year is Lisa from "Touch", our Hair&Make-Up and Styling division.

While she was gone, I had to borrow something from her drawer. And what did I find among xillions pictures of her son Modan and just a little less 'Hello Kitty' gadgets???

INCREDIBLE BACKSTAGE SHOTS from all the shows she is attending! Here is one she did at "Alexander McQueen";

We can't hold such beauty away from this blog, can we? More posts and pictures about Touch are coming, for sure!!!
