Photographer Interview: Gustavo Sardi

28 July, 2014

Gustavo Sardi is a one-of-a-kind artist that expresses himself digitally.

He has been the official photographer for FashionMenswear/FSBMens and he has great instincts for fashion photography, recognizing best angles, and eliciting the best expressions/poses. Truly, his mastery of post-production techniques is essential to what he does as he considers himself a very good retoucher/compositer.

As a member of the FashionMenswear/FSBMens family, he is recognized for his professionalism. For instance, his detail orientation is laudable. He attains the ability to focus on the  tiny details as well as the big picture. This is exemplified in each of our photo-shoots whether it’s for our newest pairs of shoes, suits, shirts or any product for our worldwide customer. Essentially, his photos contribute to the success of FashionMenswear/FSBMens today as he showcases our wide selection of men’s clothing and shoes in a creative way.

Q: What is your favorite part about being a photographer, and why?

A: I’m a visual artist, I’m a visual human being, really. I eat through my eyes! Photography provides a medium to create images that are both artistic and documentary. The gratification isn’t as delayed as it would be with, say painting, illustration or graphic design. It also has a component of voyeurism, of peeking into stranger’s lives which is very interesting.

My favorite part happens in post-production, where you take the images that “talk” to you and with considerable effort build upon them until a certain magic happens.

Q: What is your favorite part about working with FSB (www.FashionMenswear.com)?

A: I love the fashion industry and the beauty associated with it. Whether it’s the models, clothes, sets or any of the elements that end up on the page or screen, being a part of it is always stimulating to me. FSB is a great company to work with. It’s always abreast of the latest developments in Europe and beyond and has a savvy, exciting customer base that keeps us on the lookout for new clothes and new ways of merchandising. Fashion is always evolving and we’re along for the ride!

Q: How would you define your work ethic in three words?

A: Responsibility, fulfill-ness and gratefulness.

Q: What is your favorite product to shoot and why?

A: My favorite product to photograph is a human being wearing and sporting whatever merchandise is being promoted. Why? Not only human beings (particularly attractive ones) are fascinating to watch, but they provide the photographer with limitless angles & compositions…. try doing that with neckties and belts that never want to stay in the positions you want them in!

Q: What is the best compliment you have ever received about your photography?

A: That the people in them like/love the way they look. It takes many shots and considerable coaching to capture someone in an alluring way.

In a way a photographer in combination with the model is creating a persona that is powerful enough to connect with the viewer instantaneously. This process is creative, insightful and a little esoteric. To be seduced by an image is quite an act.

Below, is an exclusive interview with Mr. Marquez:

Who or what inspired you to become a designer?

My parents had the fashion flair of the 1930’s and 1940’s. It was an era that they always used to dress up together.  We had thousands of photographs of them wearing wonderful designs while enjoying life. Knowing our customers on the sales floor, and their wishes and needs led me to have something different than the normal brands that are massed produced.

Was it always something you always knew you would do?

I grew up in Braddock, PA, a section of Pittsburgh that had an outdoor shopping district that had some great fashion stores. Then I discovered Downtown, it open up my young fashion sense to work for Joseph Horne Co. retailers and importers. After receiving the education from Joseph Horne Co on setting up branch stores it was time to open our first store called Our Fathers Sons Boutique 1969. We then moved to South Florida in the Downtown Marina District of Boynton Beach and catered to the worldwide customer.

What is your favorite (shirt, shoe, sport coat or tie) from your new Giovanni Marquez Collection and why? 

My favorite has to be our hip shoe collection, we are in a league with the best shoe brands in the world. Our shoes are made in the same factories as the high end designers like Gucci and Cavalli and the only difference is the the name on our shoes, otherwise the craftsmanship and attention to detail is the same, if not better than some of the world’s best brands as they are hand-made in Italy to ensure the best quality for our customrers.

Who do you think is the ideal Giovanni Marquez man? 

It is the global man with travels from European and South Americas countries. In addition to young men who are beginning their careers. Middle aged men who need to keep themselves styled for business functions (With guidance of their wife). And, retired men who are now enjoying life and traveling for leisure.

You are a global brand — How much does travel influence your designs?

100%, traveling influences all our creativity when shopping the global markets for styles and fabric. I enjoy traveling to places like New York, Las Vegas, and Europe where I get to bring back that style to our customers.

How would you describe your personal fashion style? 

Easy and comfortable + light weight + detailed with color.

World Cup Champion of the Day: Germany and Argentina

13 July, 2014

Argentina

The World Cup semi-finals have passed and we have an exclusive recap of both Germany vs. Brazil and Argentina vs. Netherlands with Germany and Argentina advancing to the final stage of the FIFA World Cup 2014.

Germany poured in the goals Tuesday to give Brazil its heaviest World Cup loss ever with a shocking  7-1 game that shocked the host nation.

Brazil’s attack was weakened by the loss of star Neymar, who fractured a vertebra during their quarterfinal win over Colombia. But, Brazil was also weaked by the loss of their  suspended captain Thiago Silva.

However, Germany played well and rightfully won the match with pride. Note, this was Germany’s biggest World Cup win since Saudi Arabia with an 8-0 win in a group match in 2002.

According to Sports Illustrated, “It’s also Brazil’s first loss in a competitive match on home soil since 1975, when Peru won 3-1 at the very same Mineirao Stadium in the Copa America. Its last loss at home came in a friendly with Paraguay in 2002.”

Following, Argentina reached its fifth World Cup final on Wednesday after topping the Netherlands, 4-2, in a penalty kick shootout following a 0-0 draw in 120 minutes of play at the Arena de Sao Paulo.

Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen did not save any of Argentina’s four penalty kicks as Netherlands. According to the Miami Herald, “… head coach Louis van Gaal decided not to use goalkeeper Tim Krul in the shootout as he did in the quarterfinal win over Costa Rica.”

Argentina now faces Germany in the World Cup final at the Maracana on Sunday while today, the Netherlands won the third-place match against Brazil.

Goals from Robin van Persie, Daley Blind and Georginio Wijnaldum gave Brazil to another defeat on home soil for the first time since 1940, following Tuesday’s embarrassing 7-1 loss to Germany in the semi-final.

Thus, we look forward to Germany and Argentina advancing, but what will you wear?

Roger entered the U.S. from Delhi, India in 1982 with $35 USD (approx. 300 rupees). He said he had no idea what he wanted out of life, but fortunately for all of us who appreciate great fashion, he ended up as a designer.

FashionMenswear: Where does your inspiration for your brand come from?
RK: Women! Looking at how beautiful they are, how do I (we, men) impress them? Men need to feel good about themselves. I allow for them to achieve the confidence that a wardrobe can provide without you knowing it.

Dress to impress in One in a Million men’s jeans

FashionMenswear: What fabrics can customers find in your jeans?
RK: The base fiber is cotton, some (fabrics) are blended. The product is made in the Far East whereby using Italian fabrics from multiple suppliers. The yarns are a process of creative engineering ranging from herringbone, jacquards, dobbis, and at least seven or eight different types of washes. The laundry and chemicals have to be of the highest quality in the world.

The fit of the garment is critical. In fact my buyers try the samples prior to purchase and order placement.

This is a two-part business and is divided in very strong way among buyers as its very fast paced:

1 – The hipster/contemporary look is one
2 – The traditional and classic look is sustained because retailers/buyers/merchants do not wish to take chances. They prefer sticking to what they are doing.

FashionMenswear: What can we expect to see next from you?
RK: A new look you shall see on the market this year are my digital imaging t-shirts which no one in the market has done. Stay tuned for more…
