Conversations: Ivan Bart

February 18, 2016

“We are moving into the era of diversity and inclusion,” says Ivan Bart, Senior Vice President of IMG Models. We sat down with this modeling industry veteran to chat about how social media is shifting the scouting landscape and why models like Ashley Graham, Jillian Mercado and Hari Nef are a "new generation of stars."

What will a runway show look like in ten years?

I attended the Margiela couture show in January and there were 100 edited seats of front row facing the runway. It was all the most famous editors and fashion influencers. I believe the runway may become more exclusive like this show, while the digital access will make it more inclusive with clothes going direct to consumer and access to buy immediately after the show concludes.

How have you seen the image of a model change over the past ten years?

At IMG Models, we are moving into the era of diversity and inclusion. We are signing talent and creating a roster that reflects the population. We are focusing on all races, ages, genders, and sizes. We are helping build the careers of a new generation of stars such as Ashley Graham, Jillian Mercado and Hari Nef. We still represent “traditionally beautiful” models such as Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls, but we are simultaneously redefining the term “model.”

What would you tell a model starting his or her career?

The same thing I have said to a potential model my entire career: This is not a business to focus on glamour if you are the muse. You need to be an inspiration to a designer, editor, or customer, and if you are not up for the long hours, endless travel and inability to keep a regular schedule, you should chose another career. If you want to remain in fashion, find an opportunity where the effort and focus is not all on you.

What is NYFW like for Ivan Bart?

HECTIC! From managing the team at IMG Models, and putting out fires (such as scheduling conflicts for in-demand talent), to seeing shows, networking backstage and front of house and discovering new opportunities. NYFW especially consists of running to several events, dinners, and parties. It begins early morning and tends to go into the wee hours of the night. My mantra: Take a nap and start again. This schedule goes until the last ensemble comes down the runway. I always look forward to the weekend after, when I may not emerge from my bed. I then take a rest and move on to Europe!

Where is the next emerging global fashion market?

On your device!

Is it easier or harder to break into the modeling industry nowadays? 

I think it's easier now that we have @WeLoveYourGenes, our Instagram scouting campaign. Any aspiring model can hashtag #WLYG and we may discover and sign him or her to IMG Models. The digital era has given us the ability to scout globally from our office! 

How has social media shifted the landscape for models?

Models can now participate in their own promotion. They’re becoming their own brands and legitimate stars with unique voices. Before the rise of social media, one needed a manager to sell who you are and to open doors. You still need a manager to negotiate the best deal and be an advocate, but the power of a model's voice has never been stronger due to the technology. 

What are you looking for next? 

EVERYONE! #Diversity #Inclusion #Evolution 

Crowning achievement in your career? 

This very moment in time - helping elevate the conversation around what is considered beautiful and fashionable - is my crowning achievement. It's not just one thing anymore. It's a diverse array of interesting influencers. I have never felt more motivated and excited to move into an era where we might finally see ourselves reflected on runways, television commercials and magazine covers!

Conversations: Justin Livingston

February 16, 2016

How does menswear blogger Justin Livingston of Scout Sixteen survive NYFW? With a little help from his Fossil Q Founder smartwatch. "Since I’m a full-time blogger, having pieces like Q Founder, and being able to check my calendar and receive alerts on the go, keeps me on track,” he says. Thanks to its activity tracking and notification features, the Fossil Q Founder is perfect for fashion and tech enthusiasts on the go. It’s also a street style essential; this connected accessory is completely customizable, with fresh dials and faces. "I like the fact that no matter what my  mood is for the day, with a smartwatch like Fossil Q, I can change its face and straps to match whatever I'm wearing ,” says Livingston. See a day in the life Justin's #NYFW below. 

The Fossil Q Founder  smart watch connects to the Q app, available for Android and iOS. Find your own Q Founder here.

What's a typical day for Justin Livingston?

I get up between 7 and 8:30 AM normally. I try to work out in the morning, but if I have morning meetings, then I’ll meet someone for breakfast. I end the day having a lot of lunch and dinner meetings. I normally try to see a friend, at least to have a drink after work or a late-night snack or something. It’s nice because I am so busy throughout my day, and I’m not always in a position where I can check my phone, but it’s nice that with the Fossil Founder I can easily flip my watch over, see a quick notification, and it doesn’t distract me or won’t seem rude to the person I’m meeting with. It’s pretty nice.

How would you describe your personal style?

I guess I would say I’m classic with a twist. I like minimal, simple pieces, but I like to jazz it up every now and then with a printed shirt, brogue boots or something that’s a little bit more edgy. My style is pretty classic.

How has your lifestyle changed since becoming a full-time blogger?

It was odd because when I started my blog, it wasn’t anything I thought would take off, and when it did, I was quite surprised. It’s been such a whirlwind, roller-coaster journey, and there’s been a lot of trial and errors, learning how to manage this sort of unmanageable lifestyle.

Time management is so important, and it’s something I had to learn. Since I’m a full-time blogger, having pieces like the Fossil Q and being able to check my calendar on the go, keeps me on track. It’s the only way that I can continue a successful career, by keeping myself on time.

How does the Fossil Q Founder fit into your life as a blogger?

I normally go to bed with the watch on, and at night, I’ll just check my watch to see what time it is. I like the fact that no matter what my mood is for the day, with a smartwatch like Fossil Q, you can change it up to match whatever you are wearing. It’s a total classic. You can dress it up or dress it down, which is perfect.

What are some of your favorite faces?

I’m such a classic person, so I love the classic chronograph face. I really like the aviator. It’s really nice and clean and perfect to wear with jeans, a t-shirt and maybe some Converse. This seems much more fitting for an everyday weekend look. I actually think the Fred face is really funny, too!

First Look: Fossil x Opening Ceremony

February 15, 2016

 At Opening Ceremony’s Fall/Winter ’16 runway show, the intergalactic vixen took center stage. “We were very inspired by this idea of strong women,” said Co-Founder Carol Lim. The collection, influenced by Blade Runner and the work of neofuturistic artist Syd Mead, showcased cool-girl metallics and out-of-this-world prints. Plus, a series of chic timepieces from the brand’s collaboration with Fossil. “They’re the kind of the thing that you can wear from day to evening,” said Lim of the metal and jewel-infused line, adding: “They’re both a fashion piece, but also a staple.” On display were the new Fall Fossil x Opening Ceremony bangle watches, complete with mother-of-pearl dials. See below for photos of Sunday’s show, featuring an intimate look at the partnership.

The Spring collection is available here.
