My first duty for this week were to get in contact with Lauren Sherman at the Business of Fashion regarding the use of runway photos and what the protocol is for getting permission to use them. I haven’t heard back from her yet, but I’m hoping to have heard from her by Tuesday’s class. Second, I needed to compose a formal letter to send out to the casting directors of each show we plan to feature in our project. There are only 10, but the trick is actually getting a contact for each ones. If worst comes to worst, I will go to each casting firm that they’re affiliated with and ask for the information we need face to face. This is a crucial aspect of the project. Without knowing the ethnicities of the models, the project doesn’t exist. I am worried, but I feel like we have the tools to get what we want. A lot of the digital aspects are still pretty foreign to me, but I’m doing my best to be as helpful and useful to my team mates as possible.
