Why did you want to be part of this show?

I have been a brand model for Elementz of Couture for almost two years now and every time I walk in a show, it’s always so much fun. I meet new creatives and walk for incredibly talented designers, all whilst being included in an amazing group. It’s like family. 

fashion project live

What was your favorite part of the show?

Once it’s your turn to walk, the runway is yours. It’s an elating feeling like no other that boosts your confidence ten fold. Everyone is watching you model this design and you get to decide how to show it off. It’s nerve wracking and exhilarating at the same time, totally addictive.

Why did you want to be part of this show?

When Natalie phoned me and explained what EOC was about, I was over the moon to be part of such a diverse event. 
When I saw Instagram pics of past events, I was enlightened by the colours, clothes, designs and creativity and knew this was so much More then a model competition.

What was your favorite part of the show?

The event itself was spectacular, but for me the most blessed part of the entire show were the other models.
The way each girl, without even asking helped each other get into our outfits and uplift each other was just phenomenal. Blessed to work with these beauties. All were fab, inside and out.

I am fairly new to my modelling career, but I have already made an impact within a year! Being in a successful music video, a few fashion photo shoots for a clothing brand and for my own portfolio, as well as catwalk fashion show. I always work hard to my full potential and look for new opportunities. As well as modelling, I am a Trainee Accountant.

Why did you want to be part of this show?

I wanted to be part of Elementz of Couture Show as it was an opportunity to get more experience in catwalk. I am glad I took the step and applied as it has helped with my confidence and I was supported by beautiful people inside and out.

From the rehearsals to the actual day of the show was an amazing experience. The organizer Natalie, models, designers, photographers, make-up artists and many more were professional and was lovely to work with.

"That was the best moment of my life"


fashion project live

Model: @kamila.koltun_official

Hi, I'm Kamila, I'm 26 and I'm originally from Poland. I have started doing modelling a year ago. I've decided to take things in my own hands and started focusing on myself properly. Modelling was always my dream since I was little.
The biggest interest was a catwalk and how models walk through the runway in the designer clothes. Throughout the time in my life I didn't managed to do anything about it, I was always in a relationship and that was my main focus. Now that I have decided about my future, I put every effort to follow my dream and with every experience I am more excited about it. At the moment I'm doing modelling part time and have a full time job. My goal is to become fully independent, travel the world and just simply be happy!

fashion project live

Why did you want to be part of this show?

One day I saw Elementz of Couture rehearsing for Summer Fashion Show 2019. The music, the vibe, the atmosphere and people. I've really enjoyed just standing and watching them all killing it on the runway and the music was good too! Once I've noticed couple of girls with similar height as mine (I'm 5''2) I wanted to be the part of it too! Not everywhere petite models are accepted either that is a photo-shoot or catwalk. Once I have noticed the opportunity, I came to Natalie Maragh and asked if I could be a part of it. She gave me her Facebook and send me an application form for the Winter Show. That was the best moment of my life as this is a chance for me to prove that models with all different sizes can do it too! 

fashion project live

What was your favorite part of the show?

My favorite part is when I'm in my moment while walking through the runway. I love wearing heels, I feel like I'm myself. The music is on, the audience is clapping and cheering, priceless experience.

FITNESS

Jamile DeSouza Davies

@jamiledavies

THE RISE OF THE FITNESS INFLUENCER

Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat have completely changed the world we live in. If you stop sipping your latte for a second and look around your favorite coffee shop, you will likely notice that over half of the customers are thoroughly immersed in one of these sites, via their mobile device. Instagram is one of these life-altering sites and unless you’ve been living off the grid with the indigenous people of the Amazon rain-forest, you have heard of it before. As with most of these sites, Instagram relies on followers. The amount of following you have, directly determines the amount influence you can provide and savvy Instagram users can turn that influence into currency. The people who are able to use social media to generate revenue are commonly referred to as influencers.

One of these fast rising influencers is Jamile Desouza-Davies. Jamile is a former professional ballerina turned fitness icon who is the creator of a 4 week, personalized training regiment called Alpha project. 

This fitness coach is also a lecturer at Aberystwyth University, with two Masters degrees in management and marketing. She has a huge social media platform, with 150 thousand followers on Instagram. Unfortunately, one day she logged into Instagram to find that her account had been hacked and that her 150k followers had all disappeared to zero.

What would you do?

Most of us would panic, throw a tantrum or both, but not Jamile. She ended up taking her own advice which is to use exercise and meditation to battle and defeat the many stresses of life. It took an entire year for Jamile to get her following back to influencer level. She made it happen while maintaining her composure through exercise and meditation. This is the best way to tackle stress, so here are twelve exercises, one for each month, that you can do to keep stress at bay and stay focused during a crisis like Jamile did.

Celebrating one year of the alpha project with Jamile's monthly workouts

July 2018: Side Planks

Perform these exactly like a normal plank except Lay on your side with your forearm flat on the floor, line your bottom elbow up directly under your shoulder with both legs straight our. Your feet should be slightly spread unless you need more of a challenge, then feel free to stack them. Use your core to lift your hips off the floor, forming a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold for 20 seconds and repeat on the other side.

August 2018: Knee Raises

Another core exercise that has variable ways to execute depending on your skill level. Most people start with their body weight resting on the arm pads, gripping the handles. Raise your knees to your chest and pause, don’t let the momentum of your body swing you. Return to the starting position. If your advanced, instead of using the arm rests to hold your weight, perform these while hanging from the pull-up bar.

September 2018: Scissor Kicks

This exercise is a staple for your ab day routine and can be done anywhere at anytime, all you need is a floor. This specifically targets the transverse abdominus, hip flexors and lower abs, where your muffin top resides. To perform this correctly, you need to focus on utilizing your core. Start by raising your open legs to a 45 degree angle with your palms flat on the ground. Bring your legs together and slightly cross your feet over, then return to the starting position. Try to hit between 12-15 with 3 sets.

October 2018: Resistance Band Abduction

Hip abductors are a fantastic way to hit those glutes, but you don’t always wanna make that trip to the gym, so what do you do? The solution is resistance bands to make her dance. These bands are so versatile and can be used on almost any muscle group, but what Jamile is demonstrating is hip abduction. This exercise targets those butt muscles to make your yoga pants pop. Its gonna be hard to stay stressed when you have a nice round ass to show off.

November 2018: Leg Extensions

You might of heard several conflicting opinions regarding leg extensions. One minute they’re good for you and the next, they’re the worst possible exercise you could ever do. Personally I'm a fan of ripped quads, and to get those, cranking out reps of leg extensions is helpful if done correctly. The problem is, the leg extension machine puts a lot of stress on your ACL, so it shouldn’t be performed with lots of weight. This is a low weight, high rep machine, designed to isolate your quads and give them some definition.

December 2018: Snowboarding

When you’re seriously bogged down by worry and the regular routine at the local gym isn’t cutting it, you might need to get away and expose yourself to something new. Learning new things can be exciting and that excitement releases endorphins that cause us to feel good. Give your stress a time-out and feel good for a minute. Usually you can come back to the issue with a fresh perspective and maybe the thing you thought was major, was actually pretty minor after all.

January 2019: Kickboxing

If you're serious about your cardio but are also feeling like a trapped hamster on the treadmill, it might be time to switch up the routine and add some kickboxing. You will burn major calories because this works muscles you didn’t even know you had. This is my go-to for stress relief because its really hard to think about life’s problems when you're focusing on whether to throw a left hook or a right uppercut. Before you venture off solo and start wailing on a bag, you should find a trainer or attend a kickboxing class, just until you're familiar with the right stance and punching techniques. You don’t want to become good at doing something the wrong way, so learn it correctly with an instructor.

February 2019: Reverse Grip Curls

Most people understand how to do a basic barbell curl but there muscles that could greatly benefit from adding a slight variation to your form, such as the extension muscles in your forearm when you perform reverse grip curls. When you reverse the grip, the biceps are locked out and you will feel the burn in your forearm instead. These muscles aren’t as strong as the ones in your arm so try to start with a lighter weight and set your target for 3 sets of 12 slow and controlled reps.

March 2019: Tricep Dips

Tricep dips are a must if you want your arms looking anything like Jamile’s. This is another exercise that doesn’t require any fancy equipment, all you need is a bench or a chair. Sit on the edge of the chair and grip the edge next to your hips. Your legs are straight out and your feet should be about hip-width apart with the heels touching the ground. Look straight ahead with your chin up. Press down into the chair or bench to lift your body and slide forward just far enough that your behind clears the edge of the chair. Lower yourself until your elbows are bent between 45 and 90 degrees. Slowly push yourself back up to the start position and repeat. Aim for 3 sets of 12 .

April 2019: Bicycle Crunch

This is one of, if not the most effective abdominal exercises available and it requires zero equipment. Start by lying on your back with your knees bent and your hands behind your head. Move your legs as if you’re slowly riding a bike and simultaneously crunch and twist your torso to that your elbow touches the opposite knee. Make sure to refrain from pulling your neck forward, use your torso instead. This exercise crazy effective because it works your front and side abs, rectus abdominus and transverse abdominus, respectively, as well as working your quads. Three for the price of one. Try for 20 seconds and repeat for 3 sets

May 2019: Push-ups

Push-ups are tricky because they look easy but most people perform them wrong. Ideally you should start on the ground with your feet together and your elbows close to your ribs, not flared out away from you. The latter causes unnecessary strain your rotator cuff muscles and can lead to injury. If push-ups are new to you, they might too difficult to perform in the traditional stance. If you find this to be the case, you can try spreading your feet. If they’re still too hard, try using your knees until you feel yourself getting strong enough to perform them the regular way. 

June 2019: Stretching

Stretching should happen everyday. It is amazing for stress relief. When you’re experiencing stress, there’s a good chance your muscles are tense. That’s because your muscles tend to tighten up in response to physical and emotional stress. Stretching increases the blood flow to your muscles to allow improved circulation and helps with recovery from tension. There are two main types of stretching; static and dynamic. Static stretches involve putting yourself in a comfortable position to stretch and hold that position for 20 seconds. Dynamic stretches are more of a warm up. It involves moving the muscles without weight, throughout your range of motion. Dynamic stretches are done before a workout and static stretches are done after.

So it stands to reason that if your body feels better, so does your mind. The next time life gets stressful for you you, remember Jamile’s story along with these techniques to have you bouncing back in no time.

REVIEW

Chantelle Reviews Us

Chantelle model

We asked the beautiful Chantelle to review one of our archived magazines and tell us who her favourite interview feature was. 

My name is Chantelle Douglas, I am 35 and live in Bristol. I am also a mother to three wonderful children.  I started out my journey by attending a ms curvaceous UK body confidence workshop, to my amazement I managed to get through to the finals and it just went from there. For me being a plus size model is being able to represent the girls/ women that you don't see on tv or in the magazines. I believe everybody has the right to feel good about themselves. I know what its like to experience body shaming it's awful.

WINNER

Kerri wins Inspiration Award

inspiration award

Kerri Larkin is the Fashion Project LIVE Magazine Inspiration Award winner (W2019)

Kerri's interview: I was diagnosed with autism back in 2017, I was scared to tell people because most people do not understand it and it was hard for me to process when I was diagnosed. I am now embracing it and I want to tell other people with autism whatever your talents, let them shine. I am 32 from Northampton and I started modelling 2 years ago. It started off with my extra work and I started looking for TFP photographers. I am now with a model agency called model management. I may be a model with autism but it doesn't define me, it's a part of me. Doing modelling is a way of showing people my sense of style & creativity and how I express myself. I have 2 cats, fifi and fudge and I do weightlifting. I enjoy taking photos of wildlife in my spare time. Also I love having tattoos, it started at 18 and I never stopped. I just feel that you can express yourself with body art as it tells a story.

My advice : No matter what disability you have or mental health . Live your dreams every day is about living in the moment just go for it .
