A few weeks ago we introduced Glacéau vitaminwater’s #shinebright running all summer long before we took a closer look at the unique mentoring opportunity provided by Mikey Trapstar. Now, we highlight five of the other creative entrepreneurs participants have the chance to work one-on-one with whose skills range from fashion photography to music production. Check out all five below.
First up is Susie Bubble, the London-based fashion writer, editor and author of Style Bubble. Starting the blog in 2006, Susie has since turned her passion into a full-time profession while managing to write articles for Dazed and Confused, Elle UK, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Style.com and Vogue China. For her part, Susie is offering an emerging talent the chance to work with her side-by-side for two days at London Fashion Week, teaching the winner how to set up and manage their own style blog, handle commissions and get closer to the catwalk than ever before.
Next up is French photographer Theo Gosselin who is inviting one participant to join him in Paris to capture the City of Light’s vibrant streets. Having completed his first feature film in August 2012, Goodbye Horses, Theo wants to pass on his knowledge of everything from composition to post-production to one aspiring photographer. At the end of the day, the winner will walk away with a series of portraits that perfectly captures Paris’ inspiring subjects. When asked why he wants to give someone else the chance to #shinebright, Theo replied with the following:
““I have a unique group of friends who have allowed me to live my dream – taking photographs and exploring the beauty in everyday things. To take beautiful photos you need to dream, to want to inspire. In the #shinebright project I want the winning photo to inspire me, that’s the most important thing.””
Following Theo is Jenny Grettve, the Swedish architect, musician and fashion designer who wants to give a rising star the chance to collaborate with her on a track that could be used as the soundtrack to her fashion label. With a well-rounded list of travels that includes studying furniture design in Italy, architecture in Australia and fashion design in Sweden, Jenny truly understands what it means to be endlessly inspired and creative. Regarding her role in #shinebright and the collaborative opportunity provided by her, Jenny explained:
““I’m curious about everything, constantly trying out new techniques to see what happens. I’ve always been inspired by both art and music and incorporated both and a sense of exploration into my work. For the #shinebright project I’m looking for someone fearless and inspirational, to make new discoveries with.””
Up next is Lisa Gachet, the stylist, blogger and self-proclaimed “swiss army knife creator” whose passions include designing, decorating, cooking and doing just about anything creative. One lucky participant gets the unique chance to meet Lisa in Paris and bake a cake inspired by their favorite designer or fashion collection. The entire experience will be documented by a professional food photographer with the photos being featured on Lisa’s popular blog, Make My Lemonade. For her role in #shinebright and the mentorship opportunity provided by her, Lisa related:
““What keeps me motivated is that I know I’ll do something new every day. I’m a stylist, designer, decorator, cook – doing anything creative is what I love! It’s so important to keep learning and enriching your life. I want the #shinebright project to surprise me!””
Last but certainly not least is Trine Kjaer, the Danish stylist, DJ, blogger and entrepreneur who runs her own clothing line and hair care brand. The multitalented Dane wants to give one participant insight into the ins and outs of launching their own brand in a day that includes a visit to the manufacturers of her clothing and hair care brands to see up close how everything comes together before heading to one of Copenhagen’s to DJ alongside her. Trine’s participation in #shinebright somewhat reflects her own experience, and as far as the candidate she hopes to work with goes, she explains:
““I came into the fashion industry by accident I think! I’m now a stylist, designer and blogger with my own clothing and hair care range. Passion is everything to me. For the #shinebright project I’ll be looking for someone curious, and driven but most of all passionate.””
