More “refugee” stories from 2006 that didn’t get pursued due to various internal problems. , 2003–4 and now an host, is a bit of a fashion designer in her own right. She made the lace top at left which John F. Cooper photographed her in for Lucire last year, and I remember a red dress which she wore to a L’Oréal Professionnel hair show a few years back as well. They aren’t the only ones: long before her Lucire cover story, Amber had been inspired by old and created images for her own clothing, which were featured in the mainstream during the year.
   I wanted to showcase these along with paintings by international New Zealand-based Amanda Tomasoa that were also inspired by Lucire shoots and covers. I was thrilled to see these and they are examples of how are owned by the people whom they contact. While legally the belong to one of my companies, in practice brands and their perceptions are steered by audiences.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
