    Off the Rack

    Runway Departure

    by Brooke Williams

    For years, Columbus designers have been all dressed up with no place to go. But this year, for the first time, local industry professionals decided to take matters into their own hands with the launch of Columbus Fashion Week.

    Producer Ed Kavishe explained that the inspiration behind the event came on the heels of viewing a litany of local fashion shows that were high on fashion, but low on execution.

    “The quality of the shows was just not there,” he said. “A lot of clubs and galleries were not designed to host a fashion show. We wanted to create a real showcase for talented local designers and retailers.”

    :) Since you have set such a good example, I’ll just say: Swimwear? I can’t think of a better way to showcase underappreciated design talent in a Midwestern fashion show than with a line of swimwear at the events grand finale.

    Well, I’m going to try to say this really gently because I think this concept was ambitious and well intended regardless of result…

    I’ve worked in the Ohio modeling/fashion industry for over a decade (with a brief stint in Miami), and found it strange not to know any of the names involved. My agency is very boutique and specialized, so me not being contacted or part of this wasn’t a surprise…but that Heyman, CAM, Goenner, or any of the “big, legit agencies” were also not involved…screamed problem. The fact that Cunningham, Shively, McGuire, Roharik, Widder, or any of the other even remotely prominent fashion photographers weren’t involved…screamed problem. Now, if I’m wrong and these individuals became involved and I am just unaware of it…great…but for the most part, I’m confident they weren’t.

    I can say though, I wish the organizers all the best in having it still be a success and if it’s repeated next year, feel free to contact me or anyone on the lists above for additional assistance.

    The one major question I have with “Columbus Fashion Week” is do we need to put TM after everthing? I mean no other fashion week has to put TM or LLC after everthing they do; maybe because they are creditable and have class.

    Don’t worry, no one will try to steal “Columbus Fashion Week” because it is already tarnished from the very begining!

    pretty much agree with all you guys. i do have a few comments related indirectly to this threads topic. is it me or does columbus seem to have some infactuation with modeling and fashion? everyone here seems to claim to model, both guys and girls. talk to anyone in the club half of them say they model. when i lived in chicago i dated a REAL model (runway, hair shows, and makeup). guess what? she didnt have time to be in clubs all the fuckin time, frankly between college, and modeling career she didnt have time for shit. (pretty much the reason i broke up, hot girl doesnt mean shit when you see here 5 times a month). i mean even some guy at the bar once was telling me he did the “triangle” I said wtf is that, he said flying between ny, chicago, and miami, almost puked it was so funny. guy was a good 6 inches shorter than me and i am 6′ 1″, i wont even comment on his howard stern nose. I mean i dunno maybe its me or the people i happen to run into, but its weird. this isnt like a diss to coremodels, as on here at least you dont even seem to mention working in the modeling industyr (is that what its called). more ment for these corny people that think they model because they posed for some pictures for the alive at Sugar.

    The whole “I’m a model” rampage is because of a boatload of modeling schools and photo mills around town…basically “hi, if you give me 1000 bucks you can say your a model”. It makes sense, with a campus as huge as OSU those places have a constantly updating suckers list to live off of.

    Now, back to the whole Style-ology, Imajin Studios & Management, Columbus Fashion Week thing. I was bored this morning (and curious) and did a little digging around.

    1. Imajin is a photographer who also claims to represent models. I’m usually not this direct, but in this case I will be…he’s an amateur photographer at best, who’s website is filled with stock images that aren’t his…and even more ridiculous THIS, which I’m guessing he photoshopped to claim as a GQ cover???

    Just so we’re clear…the person who shot this:

    Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!

    didn’t also shoot this:

    Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!

    Unless he shot the second one when he was 8 years old. Again, normally I don’t like to slam people, especially on their work, but frauds are frauds. This guy has his entire “Portfolio 1” made up from stock images from a Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

    I was going to go on with numbers 2 and 3, but really want to sit and digest 1 for a minute…
