Noël Caleb Model Search 2013

Hello fellow Noël Caleb fans!

Check out what we were up to last week.

We conducted our first model audition for the year on 19 Feb at the fabulous The Co.

The selected models will walk the runway for our upcoming fashion show on 23 March at the Zouk.

They will also be put on a short list to be our campaign model for our upcoming collection, launching in March.

It was a fun filled evening with the audition consisting of three parts – a photo shoot, a video shoot of the runway walk (which was really challenging as the models had to walk down a spiral staircase in heels!) and a 30 second video introduction.

All the models did really well and it was unfortunate that we could choose only 16 from amongst them.

So without much further ado, here are the 16 lucky ladies 🙂

Noël Caleb Apprentice Class Commences

We commenced the first Noël Caleb class on this Wednesday 7 Nov 2012. It ended on a really high note with all the apprentices looking forward to the next lesson. If you’ve missed it, here’re some “behind-the-scene” snapshots for you.

We started off the lesson by having the apprentices share with each other on their sense of style as well as the insecurities that they have when styling themselves, so as to be able to get a better idea of each and everyone’s dressing.

We went on to talk about the various body types and the styling tips for different body types that will  complement perfectly the many individuals.

After getting to know more about styling, the apprentices gave it a go in  styling each other in the various Noël Caleb collections. It was filled with laughter and giggles in the room as they attempted to style one another, no doubt that they had fun putting their knowledge into use.

Witness the actions below and see how the apprentices transformed themselves through putting on Noël Caleb pieces.

Samuel Woo: Finalist Four – Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012

Last but definitely not the least, we present to you, Samuel Woo, the fourth finalist of the Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012.

Samuel is a graduate of NTU’s School of Art, Design and Media, having completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Digital Media with Honors. He brings with him several years of experience working as a Graphic Designer, Photographer and Art Director on various individual and corporate projects.

He has also exhibited his photographs and performance art pieces at several prestigious shows over the years.

As Samuel says in his own words – “My work revolves around questioning the values of a fixed identity in the (post) postmodern world today, from defining self through self, defining self through the other and defining self through the environment.”

Samuel uses and hybridizes a variety of media – photography, painting, performance art, etc, not only to challenge himself technically but also to mirror the blurring of boundaries between artistic practices today, following an innate impulse to create novel experiences in understanding art.

You can check out Samuel’s website to see more of his cutting-edge work.

Well, now that you have met all four finalists, you must be really curious to see their editorial fashion spreads for our latest collection ‘Garden of Eden’.

You only have to wait a few more hours 🙂

Tomorrow, we will reveal their artistic creations for Noël Caleb on our Facebook page.

You will have one week to vote for your favorite photographer. Remember, your votes will have 60% weightage in the final choice of the winner so each vote will be really important for our finalists.

The winner of the Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012 will get an opportunity to showcase their talent on a global scale by creating an editorial fashion spread for Noël Caleb in our next campaign.

But all that comes later.

Right now, we are super excited about tomorrow 🙂

See you on our Facebook page!

Ross Velantine Errol: Finalist Three – Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012

Presenting Ross Velantine Errol, visual artist par excellence and the third finalist of the Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012.

Ross is an extremely versatile photographer whose portfolio includes a wide range of subjects, shot in several countries across the region such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia apart from Singapore.

He is renowned for his excellent use and control of natural light, which makes the object of the photograph look stunning yet natural.

Before establishing himself as a full-time photographer, Ross was at the helm of many award-winning Food & Beverage (F&B) establishments as part of their management team.

Maybe that explains his stunning F&B photography 🙂

Be it food, still life, portraiture or events, Ross excels at it all. His process of capturing moments through a story-telling approach not only make his works unique, but very personal as well. Moreover, his amiable personality makes him an absolute joy to work with.

You can check out his amazing portfolio in detail at his site, Velantine Photography.

We are quite sure his editorial shoot for our Garden of Eden collection will be quite stunning as well.

But will he win?

There is only one way to find out 🙂

Check out our Facebook page on 8 Oct to see his visual spread for Noël Caleb and vote for him.

Tomorrow, you will meet our last finalist – Samuel Woo.

Jiayun Zhu: Finalist Two – Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012

Meet Jiayun Zhu, better known as Una – the second finalist of the Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012.

Una is an upcoming photographer from Shanghai, China who is currently studying in Singapore. While she is relatively young (only 18!!!) and new to the world of photography, we think she has serious talent and displays terrific potential.

See for yourself!

Her love for photography comes across clearly through her pictures. She sees beauty everywhere and in everything, an essential quality of any gifted photographer. Her specialty is portraiture.

Fashion is a passion for her so it’s not surprising that she is the founder of the popular street-style blog Singapore Street Snap.

She uses two cameras even while shooting street-style photographs – a digital camera and a film camera.

Now, that’s some serious commitment 🙂

Given the strong female imagery in her photographs and her unique fashion style, we are very excited to see Una’s interpretation of Eve using our latest collection – Garden of Eden.

So mark your calendars for 8 Oct when we will be showcasing Una’s creative spread for Noël Caleb on our Facebook page.

Be sure to vote for her if you want to crown her the winner.

Well, that’s two finalists done and two more to go 🙂

Tomorrow, you will meet our third finalist – Ross Velantine Errol.
