Nikka Lorak’s Photography Exhibition at ‘The Library-St. Martyns Lane’ in London

By: Rebeca Riofrio
Photography : Cem Kaplan

We had the pleasure to visit Nikka Lorak’s Photography Exhibition private members club ‘The Library-St. Martyns Lane’ in London on the 7 July 2016.

Nikka   is a fashion photographer whose life is a journey. Literally, Nikka is an experienced traveller whose passion for traveling and cultural discovery brings her to the most exotic spots of the planet.

The exhibition KENYA: BACK TO ROOTS is dedicated to Kenya, one of the most fascinating country from Lorak’s travel diary. The project brings together traditional Kenyan costume and contemporary fashion. Shot in collaboration with 5 fashion and 3 accessories designers, it is a project that reflects cultural pride, strong bond with local traditions andfuture aspirations of Kenyan fashion elite.

Breathtaking sunsets, colourful jungle and endless ocean set an exotic background for strong female characters, that according to Kenyans, are modern power shifters. One of Lorak’s photographs is called ‘Shifted Power’ and depicts that modern Amazon, who, despite of wearing traditionally inspired outfit, steps forward leaving two Masai warriors, a symbol of traditional Kenyan military power, way behind.

Another popular motif in BACK TO ROOTS project is fusion of traditional and modern wear that symbolises Kenyan past and future. ‘No tree can be fruitful without roots’ say Kenyans.True indeed. Kenyan fashion designers create modern wear and accessories drawing inspiration in splendid local nature and colourful national costume, that also include traditional wear of Masai warriors.

Gushlow & Cole open online store

Story

Gushlow & Cole have long been known in the exclusive circle of British shearling design. Londoners in the know snapped up the brand’s early designs at Spitalfields; with fashion names such as Amanda Wakeley and Nicole Farhi using Gushlow & Cole’s designs and stitch techniques within their collections.

Since launching in 1997, Britain has been deprived of their lines due to the huge export demand for the label – but today this relatively unknown duo from south London are fast becoming known internationally as one of Britain’s luxury brands.

With a long family heritage, steeped in traditional shearling make; Gushlow & Cole continue to handcraft every piece entirely in Britain. Paying homage to their growing family of craftsmen and women, the individual makers name is sewn into every piece.

Whilst celebrating the 1st year anniversary of their online store, this fall will see the launch of the most comprehensive shearling collection available to buy online to date! – “An urban yet elegant take on traditional British shearling design” – Katrina Cole.

Talking about Bormes les Mimosas with François Arizzi, The Mayor

photomaire w

Sir Mayor can you please tell us, in a few words, about your municipality?

You will not be surprised if I tell you that Bormes les Mimosas is the most beautiful town in the world! Nestled between the forest of the Maures hills and the Mediterranean Sea, facing the ‘Iles d’Or’, Bormes les Mimosas is a leading tourist destination. It has a true historical and architectural heritage but also a coastline that has been only slightly urbanized. With its white sandy beaches, one can walk or swim in a completely preserved environment.  Bormes also has a modern port of 1200 moorings, each equipped with the latest equipment. Finally, Bormes has a strong wine tradition with rosé wines ranked amongst the best in the Provence region.

In your opinion, what are the most important sights to discover?

There are many. This medieval village, a French flagship ofFlowered Villages of France, is ina unique setting nestled on a hillside. Bormes has been given many awards, including the most recently designated label ‘remarkable garden’for the Gonzalez Park. In addition, the famous Fort of Bregançon can be visited in season with a reservation at the tourist office. Visitors can also discover the coastal nature path which runs along the coast several kilometers, the vineyards, the chapel Notre Dame de Constance above the village that has an exceptional 360 ° panorama… I will stop here because the list is long…

The summer program in your town is very eclectic. Why this variety?

The diversity of tourists who visit Bormes les Mimosas createdifferent needs and desires. Our neighborhoods and our venues are also very diverse. The calm and serenity of the village contrasts with the busy summer family and friendly ambience in the district of La Favière. Therefore, it is important to bring a certain eclecticism in our programming that corresponds to everyone.

This year, you are launching anArgentine Tango Festival. Can you tell us a few words about it?

Four days of Argentine tango are programmed from 7th to 10th July. Courses with the greatest masters of Argentines Tango will take place each day at the sailing school of La Favière. In the evening, in the village, you will find beginning dance classes during the aperitif hour at the place Gambetta and demonstrations from 9 pm onwards at the Castle. The culmination of the festival will be on July 9th, when we honor Hippolyte Bouchard,anative of Bormes and hero of the Argentinian revolution and liberation of Buenos Aires. This year, the ceremony will be particularly sumptuous, in the context of the bicentennial of the independence of Argentina.

Another important meeting, an exhibition devoted to Dali…

This summer the Arts and History Museum will host an exhibition devoted to Salvador Dali. Jordi Casals’s private collection will be exhibited on this occasion. Photos made by Dali, as well as photos of Dali himself, along withoriginal engravings and surprises await the public. This is an opportunity for us to highlight our Museum which is located in the heart of the village.

Classical music lovers are not forgotten with the “Musicales de Bormes” concerts that will take place for the second year in the unique setting of the Fort of Bregançon…

Actually, the medieval village lends itself admirably to classical music programming, which will provide a new momentum for the ‘Musicales de Bormes’ program in 2016. For the second year in a row, French National Monuments, in charge of opening of the Fort of Bregançon to the public, agreed to allow a night concert in July and one in August on siteat the Fort. The panorama and the quality of programming will make these moments exceptional. Contact our Tourist Office, because tickets are limited.

To conclude, in one sentence, how can you describe summer in Bormes les Mimosas?

Relaxation, happiness, joy of living. We make every effort to provide interesting events and programs with cleanliness and safety so that we may receive our visitorsunder the best possible conditions and make their stay as comfortable as possible. The Mayor, elected officials and municipal services are highlyinvested in this objective.

We believe that through our years of being behind the scenes of the fashion industry, we have acquired the necessary knowledge to guide and advise models how to make the most of their careers.  We have developed a network which will enable them to get an insight into what it takes to become the IDEAL model.

DSC_0811

After several years of running See:Saw Clothing (male fashion brand) our eyes were opened to the amount of job opportunities presented to male models. As active members of the fashion society we felt something should be done to offer more hence IDEAL. Our purpose is to find those with the passion and drive to achieve more, we believe with IDEAL as their mentor success is infinite.

This new venture materialized on the15th June with a launch party at Dalston Roof Park London. With a fashion show sponsored by See:Saw Clothing, live performance from Rapper Raw Smilez accompanied with DJ Carmen London from Pulse88 radio.

THE INTERVIEW

Please could you tell us about your background and how it leads to the work you do today? 

1)   I’m originally from Bristol so I grew up there and was heavily influenced by the music scene growing up by the likes of Massive attack, Roni size. Portishead, Smith and Mighty and generally bass heavy fusion music. I always loved hip hop, trip hop and Drum and bass, Dubstep Bristol is very well known for these genres and I picked it up from a young age and traveled a lot and ended up in Trinidad so some of my music has a West Indian influence a Caribbean pulse and has fused into what it is today.

What or who has been the biggest singular influence on your work

5) My daughter and my anxiety. My daughter was taken from me to another country without consent when she was 3 years old and it broke me and I went into a huge depression for years and had terrible anxiety, I really had to question my mental health at the time.

12249579_10153029946636184_8363591275910367128_n

You can hear this in my music at that time, my songs “Skyla Rain”, “Men In white coats” and “Dark Days” reflect my pain.
