WHAT ARE CONCEPT STORES ?

The definition can be defined by this saying of Coco Chanel: “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”. Starting from the fashion capital of the world – Paris, a concept clothing store is a retail store that goes beyond simply selling products and instead appeals to a general sense of lifestyle. The customer visit the shops not only for buying clothes but also for having a full emotional and sensory experience. Concept stores usually offer items of different designers and brands addressed to the particular segments: high-fashion, urban fashion, hipster fashion or ecological-friendly fashion. Since there were more and more people choose to shop online, concept stores have been born to attract more customers to visit the physical stores. Apple and Burberry are the leaders of this experience-focused trend. Some famous concept stores in Europe are Collette (Paris), 10 Corso Como (Milan), Dover Street Market (London), Simple (Prague),…In Barcelona, concept stores are also called as “object shops” or “fetish shops” that are outstanding with exquisite interiors.

Halloween In Barcelona 2014

WHAT TO DO ON HALLOWEEN IN BARCELONA

Celebrating Halloween in Barcelona is quite different from many other countries. It is not easy to see a lot of people parading around the streets demanding candies or carving pumpkins, but Halloween in Barcelona brings you the full range of exciting Catalan traditions with many unique activities. Halloween here is a three day celebration known as Day of the Dead or “El Dia de los Muertos”. It starts from 31th October to 2nd November.  The day after Halloween is 1st November and it is a public holiday in Spain known as “Todos los Santos” (All Saints). Halloween in Spain is about commemorating loved ones who have passed and also to celebrate the continuity of life.

But, there is much more than that,  Suitelife will let you discover what Barcelona has to offer on Halloween.

Halloween in Barcelona

La Castanyada

The highlight of the Halloween celebration in Barcelona is La Castanyada or chestnut time. This is an intriguing celebration of eating “castanyes” (roasted chestnuts), “moniatos” (sweet potatoes), “panellets” (cakes) and drinking “muscatel” sweet wine. Many bars, especially near Las Ramblas, are decorated with spider webs. On the streets, you can see many people in spooky costumes and for foodies, this day should not be missed because there will be street vendors with stalls selling delicious delicacies. One of the most famous ones are castanyes which are chestnuts roasted on charcoal grills. This is a great idea to try something warm like hot wrapped roasted chestnuts before the weather turns cold. If you want to have a closer insight into Catalan culture, there are panellets. They are mini almond-flavored balls covered in pine nuts or in coconut, lemon, or chocolate. They are sold mostly in local bakeries. Finally, don’t forget to try boniatos (sweet potatoes) which are also sold by street vendors. Remember to combine the above foods with Muscatel wine served in porrons - a traditional Catalan wine pitcher with a stem to pour the wine into your mouth.

OK! Let’s get to some details.

You interested in modelling world! You are good looking! You have something unique and different! You have personality and skills! You wanna try something new! You wanna be the model! The world of modelling in Barcelona is waiting for you!

The modelling industry is not only about the pretty faces. Basically, a lot of people have a chance to find something for themselves. The modelling industry includes print modelling, runway modelling, promotion modelling, trade show modeling, underwear modeling, petite or plus-size modeling – you just have to be patient to find something that will suit your predispositions.

HOW TO START!

Well you would say it is not easy to start in the modeling in Barcelona, but you are really wrong. First you have to find the agency, but not just any agency! You must check what they do exactly, what their offer is, and who are they looking for, and with who they cooperate. Based on that facts you can decide if the agency would be good for you to establish your personal goals. They must be excited to work with you as you are to work with them. AND remember the biggest and the best agencies are not always the best choice as they have a lot of people already working for them, and cooperating with models looking almost like you, be aware that you can end up not having as many job opportunities. There are a lot of agencies in Barcelona you just have to google them, and check their websites. We can suggest you as well to check the Modelmanaements.com website where you will find not only agencies, but a lot of usuful infromation about the modeling world as well.

Remember that finding just the agency is not enough, as the modeling in Barcelona is really competitive – there are a lot of good looking faces like yours!

You need:

  • Personality
  • Some experience ex. in some photographers projects, volunteering to do charity fashion show, or any other, I’m sure that you can think about something by yourself.
  • It is really useful to take some classes in acting.
  • Or simple some classes in modelling to be confident in what you are going to do in the future. Check our choice of the course.

 

SO what next?

You have found some agencies with witch you would make a good match and you started working on getting some first experience and you know what you want exactly. Now it is time for starting big things!

Check how can you approach the agencies – look for some forms to fill out on their websites and guidelines. You will need photos, you can get some professional snapshots or just ask your friend to take some (remember you are just starting, agencies want to see you, how you really look as you are not a professional, so keep the photos the same way – just some good ‘snapshots’ without too much makeup and in a natural lighting).

The good way to find a job is to join casting calls as you can show the real you, not just your photos (Find out how to prepare for casting). When you want to start building your own portfolio then you must get some professional shots, as only this way you will be able to stand out by showing your best looks. Modeling in Barcelona is a big industry so you will find a lot of professional photographers with experience, so you really don’t have to worry about this. Your portfolio will be helpful when visiting agencies or attending castings as well, but not the necessary in the beginning.

In the fashion industry you have to be really patient, as nothing happens in one day. Remember there are a lot of people who are contacting agencies like you are going to do. Choosing the best people takes time and you never know what agencies are looking for exactly.

 

If you never chase your dreams you will never catch them!

After a while you will get your first job and everything will start – testing your skills, look and talent in the modelling world, and maybe one day you are going to be one of the most famous models in Barcelona.

It is important to remember that a large part of modeling is finding your own individual style, look, and pose.  No two high-profile models look the same, and they tend to be very creative.  Learn how to work with the camera and your photographer to try out different types of poses and work on channeling different emotions during your shoots.  Have fun and be interactive with the camera!

Remember you need to have your own style and look that no one else can offer. Always be yourself and treat this as a hobby and just enjoy world of Modeling in Barcelona!
