Porsche Design x Escada Fashion Show

By Krishan Narsinghani

360 Magazine recently attended LA Fashion week’s pre-show featuring Porsche Design and Escada‘s newest fashion lines. The event took place at The Petersen Museum in the heart of LA at Miracle Mile. Petersen Automotive Museum is considered one of the largest of its kind known for its history and vast collection of automobiles. The attraction was founded by magazine publisher, Robert E. Petersen, in 1994 and is currently worth over forty million US dollars.  The venue offered validated parking for VIP attendees and a red carpet for all guests and celebrities.

Vintage models of Porsche vehicles greeted guests as they entered the venue for hors d’oueveres and speciality cocktails. The soiree proceeded with the fashion show held inside the Mullin Family Grand Salon. Porsche Design dressed male models as mannequins in their new men’s line where attendees could take an up-close look at edgy jackets, joggers and shoes. Escada organized a traditional runway unveiling for their women’s collection.  Models strutted alongside history as Porsche’s antique motor vehicles highlighted the runway.  Escada revealed elegant gowns for body types of all shapes and sizes. Textures varied from aqua ruched patterns to sequence-floral combinations.

The evening ended with a VIP After Party held in the Bruce Meyer Family Gallery. Additional spirits and champagne were served as larger food portions were presented to socializing guests. The architecture of the building plus views from the rooftop completed the tasteful ambiance of the night.

For Lady Liberty Campaign

In the 1880s, publisher Joseph Pulitzer inspired thousands to support the construction of Lady Liberty’s pedestal in exchange for printing donors’ names in his newspaper, in what could be considered America’s first crowdfunding campaign. This Fourth of July, in recognition of this legacy, The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. (the Foundation) is launching a similar campaign – For Lady Liberty (forladyliberty.org) – to help build the new Statue of Liberty Museum.

Donations will go toward the fundraising initiative being led by the Foundation and campaign chairperson, Diane von Furstenberg. Scheduled to open in May 2019, the museum will celebrate the Statue of Liberty’s story, explore how she has evolved from national monument to global icon, consider the concept of liberty, and be the new home for her original torch.

“From building Lady Liberty’s pedestal in the 1880s to contributing to the 1986 centennial restoration – the American people have given whatever they could afford to support the Statue,” said Richard Flood, Vice President and Chief Advancement Officer for The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation. “This crowdfunding campaign honors that history, ensuring that our fundraising efforts are inclusive, while also expanding the opportunity to a worldwide audience.”

Updated for the digital age, the month-long campaign will be held on Indiegogo, a leading online crowdfunding platform.

“I stumbled upon Joseph Pulitzer’s campaign when researching the concept of crowdfunding, and the idea of democratizing capital and what it achieved inspired me,” said Indiegogo co-founder Slava Rubin. “For me, the Statue will forever be an empowering monument to the many incredible entrepreneurs who have come to America and achieved so much, including my parents, and the challenges they overcame to make a better life for our family.”

A History of Public Support:

In the 1880s, The New York World publisher and Hungarian immigrant, Joseph Pulitzer, launched a now-legendary populist campaign to raise the necessary funds from the American people to complete construction of the Statue’s pedestal. More than 120,000 donors responded, some giving just a few pennies, and the funds were secured within months to complete the pedestal and unveil the Statue of Liberty in 1886.

One hundred years later, when the Foundation was tasked with raising funds for the Statue’s much-needed restoration, a form of crowdfunding was used again. Community groups from across the United States collected money to contribute to the centennial restoration, with donations from school children alone topping $6 million.

Today, just as Pulitzer publicly recognized those who gave to his campaign, contributors to the Statue of Liberty Museum crowdfunding campaign will be acknowledged by the Foundation in a variety of ways, including via social media.

Based on contribution levels, supporters can select from a variety of perks that will be unveiled throughout the campaign, beginning with a limited edition medallion fashioned especially for this “For Lady Liberty” crowdfunding campaign.

Donors Honored in the Museum:

Inspired by the American flag, the museum’s Liberty Star Mural features 50 sculpted stars designed by French-American artist Anh Duong. The stars are offset by the original hand-forged iron armature bars that supported the interior of the Statue of Liberty for her first 100 years. Designed by Gustave Eiffel, these unique pieces were preserved from the Statue’s 1986 centennial restoration.

Those giving the symbolic donation of $18.86 or more will be collectively recognized with one of the stars, the Founders Star, as well as have their name permanently recorded in the Founders Registry, a digital donor list on display in the museum and on the museum’s website.

About the Museum:

The new 26,000-square-foot museum was designed by architecture firm FXCollaborative with exhibitions created by experience design firm ESI Design. The structure is being built by Phelps Construction Group. Access to the museum will be free with purchase of a ferry ticket to visit Liberty Island and Ellis Island.

Zander Bleck

Zander Bleck’s single, “Mercy Me” is definitely the summer rock jam. Zander’s incredible vocals and funk pop rock beats make for the perfect on repeat summer road trip tune. Check out more on Zander below!

A spellbinding voice, vibrant charisma and a compelling artist in ascension: Zander Bleck creates epic, anthemic music to propel rock and into the future.

A small town kid from rural New Jersey, Zander grew up geographically close to the towering spires of Manhattan. A talented musical family were prime influences as he absorbed the music of legendary artists from far before his time. A competitive athlete in high school, he moved to New York where modeling paid the bills and set the stage for his journey. “I developed a certain type of fearlessness,” Zander remembers. “When you get that hardened skin it prepares you well for the music business.”

After early successes with his East Coast band “Monument” , Zander went solo. He began focusing on his voice and his writing. Fate connected him to multiple Grammy-winning songwriter Holly Knight and he traveled to Los Angeles to write and record “Temptation,” the song that he recalls, “…changed everything.”

His distinctive voice captured the attention of producer RedOne, hot off the success of Lady Gaga. In US Today RedOne called Bleck’s voice “A mixture of Jim Morrison, Bono, and Freddie Mercury” and added, “There’s no singer like that right now.” RedOne introduced Zander to Jimmy Iovine at Interscope Records and a deal was made. When an executive shakeup reordered the label, Zander shifted to Capitol Records. But his major label launch was not to be.

“I had to get tough or die,” Zander remembers. “It was time to be true to myself.” Social media was key. “I was getting an instant response. Rather than going through the chain, here was the artist and the audience. When I sing a song on social media the message is immediate, to thousands of people all over the world. I started dedicating myself to this connection.”

TV On The Radio

“For various reasons this record means a LOT to us and we’re thrilled have a chance to play it in its entirety, in New York, nonetheless. I’d say it’s gonna be a special night.” -Tunde Adebimpe

Yesterday, TV On The Radio announced a concert to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their groundbreaking album “Dear Science” to be performed on September 20, 2018, at Knockdown Center in New York. The band will play the album in its entirety. Tickets may be purchase HERE.

TV on the Radio has been called “the most vital band in America” (Associated Press), “one the most compelling rock and roll stories of the modern age” (BBC), “the most innovative band on the planet” (AV Club) and simply “superb” (Rolling Stone). In short, TV on the Radio established themselves as the most groundbreaking musicians of this generation and one of the most influential bands of the decade.

The band’s 2008 album Dear Science was voted #1 by fans in Pitchfork’s Reader’s Poll and the #1 album in the Village Voice’s Pazz and Jop poll (composed of reviews by more than 800 critics). TV on the Radio consistently confounds expectations while managing to balance respect from critics and peers alike.

Praise for DEAR SCIENCE:

“TV On the Radio’s third album proper, managed to pull off something rather special: it boldly took guitars where no album had gone before. And it did so with more creativity, daring and flair than any record since Radiohead’s OK Computer.” -The Guardian

“Dear Science is a brilliant balancing act between pop aspiration and music-geek aesthetics.” -Rolling Stone

“On ‘Dear Science,’TVOTR embraces emotions of the here and now — lust, anger, the dancer’s bliss.” -Ann Powers Los Angeles Times

“Career-defining stuff.” -The Guardian

“Yes, this is shit-hot thrilling music. But it’s also brainy and ambivalent, and more engaging for it.” -Pitchfork

“TV on the Radio traded its noisiness for clarity, the better to reveal the workings of its ambitious, multilayered songs: programming and hands-on playing, rock and funk, elegies and dance grooves, accusations and embraces. Each song follows its own idiosyncratic path from mourning to affirmation.” – New York Times

Best Places for Millennials to Start a Business

  • Tallinn beats the US and Canadian competition to be crowned the world’s most attractive city for millennials to start up a business.
  • New research from GoCompare has measured cities according to metrics essential for young entrepreneurs, including the availability of early-stage business funding and cost of living.

  • Insights into the innovative hubs of the future, and highlights what aspiring cities need to improve to feature more highly.

Dubbed the ‘global generation’, over half of all millennials would consider moving abroad for work opportunities, and an increasing amount are starting their own business ventures. With possibilities of owning a home becoming increasingly difficult in the world’s cities, rent prices soaring and the political climate changing, research shows that millennials are less financially stable compared to previous generations.

GoCompare has released data to reveal the best places for millennials to start a business, measuring ease of registering property, starting and running a business on a day-to-day level, trading across borders, and diversity, among other metrics.

New research has revealed Tallinn in Estonia to be the world’s best city for millennials starting a business, with Canada winning as a country overall – with four of its major cities, Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto featuring in the top ten.

Millennials are the backbone of the “digital nomad” generation, meaning finding hubs for opportunities, innovation and entrepreneurialism are becoming increasingly more sought after.

The Top 5 Locations include:

  • Tallinn – A reputation for being digitally savvy, tops the leaderboard owing to a combination of the ease of registering property, and starting and running a business. Estonia scored 6.5 for the cost of living, the best score compared to all European, and North American cities.

  • Toronto – Canada’s leading city in tech innovation, Toronto offers the best business funding in the country. With four of its major cities featured in the top ten, Toronto comes in second to London with an impressive 10,000 WiFi hotspots available citywide.

  • New Zealand – Named as #1 for starting and running a business with a perfect score of 10, New Zealand also ranks at #4 for biotech potential – with the highest density of PhD graduates in Life Sciences in the world. New Zealand also scores highly for their diversity rating with a score of 6.7 making it one of the best places for women and immigrants to start businesses.

  • Singapore – Despite having higher living costs than London, Singapore scores highly for starting and running a business, making it attractive for tech startups – being home to over 270 Fintech startups. However, the financial hub also scores highly for diversity, with an impressive score of 6.9.

  • London – With London’s tech sector fuelling the growth for its digital economy, the capital ranked 2nd to Silicon Valley and Singapore for diversity – with 42% of business owners originally from outside the UK. Despite a high living cost, London still scores highly amongst all other metrics making it a popular destination for entrepreneurs.

What are millennial entrepreneurs looking for?

With opportunities to travel and being globally-connected being important to mostmillennialss, many are looking outside of their home countries to start their own businesses. Here are some of the key factors in attracting young entrepreneurs:

Digitally-Savvy Cities

Digital connectivity is a non-negotiable in the 21st century working world, where location-independent entrepreneurs are set to dominate.

  • Despite not featuring in the top ten, Moscow leads the way for public wifi hotspots, offering a total of 41,250

  • Helsinki offers the fastest internet connectivity, racing ahead with 17.4mbps

  • Ironically, the Silicon Valley offers some of the slowest Wifi, at 3.7mbps

Diversity is Key

Diversity in business broadly equates to fairer representation across the whole of society. In this study, diversity was ranked according to the relative number of businesses with female and/or immigrant founders.

  • With 31%, Silicon Valley led the way on the diversity front

  • London (17%) lagged behind New York (25.5%), Chicago (24.5%) and Paris (26.5%)

  • Cape Town and Seoul came second and third overall for diversity, with 28.5% and 28% respectively of their businesses founded by minorities

Cost of Living

Millennials around the world are notoriously trapped by soaring rents and ever-less attainable property ladders.

  • Of the top ten, the stats reveal that most have a relatively high cost of living, however, Ottawa and Vancouver are notable exceptions

  • Perhaps surprisingly, Singapore and even New Zealand are ranked as having a higher cost of living than London.

The top 10 can be viewed in detail here, with an overall breakdown here.
