It was a great pleasure and achievement in getting Charli this opportunity to MODEL with Tata Naka at the official ON schedule London Fashion week at ICA Gallery.

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) is an artistic and cultural centre on The Mall in London, just off Trafalgar Square. It is located within Nash House, part of Carlton House Terrace, near the Duke of York Steps and Admiralty Arch. It contains galleries, a theatre, two cinemas, a bookshop and a bar.

 

This is a feedback that Wari LACE get back from Charli:

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Wari Lace. She displays such a professional and yet compassionate attitude towards us models. Whenever I am represented by Wari Lace, I feel immensely comfortable, as I know that I am in good hands. Not only does she attend the jobs booked to over see things, but she also attends castings. I recommend the services of Wari Lace to all models that are serious about their craft. I feel so elated that Wari Lace assisted me in getting booked for the Tata Naka presentation show. It is my first on schedule show that I have done for London Fashion Week. The show went extremely well and I have received so much exposure all over social media and in publications such as BFC, Vogue, Noctis and Hello! India just to name a few.” Charli

Just in case you missed it, here is a snapshot of Tata Naka Presentation for Autumn/Winter 2016 at London Fashion Week by British Fashion Council.

If you are a business or product company who wishes to collaborate with Wari LACE, please do not hesitate to contact me to be able to discuss further into how I can be of a service to you.

Working with Natural Hair Models

Models needed for upcoming projects.

We have been questioned on one particular area, Hair! We wish to clarify to why this area of HAIR is very significant. We at LACE request and require all models to have their own hair out on show to any castings and for any event shows that LACE is involved with.

The reasons for this is that Wari LACE / London Africa Cultural Event is from back in the days when models were requested and required to have their own hair out and also back than it was not the norm to have weaved hair as a model.

The ethics of LACE is that we work with enormous talented celebrities’ and upcoming hairstylists, hair award salons and leading hair products. By having your own hair out makes the model casting go smooth which enable the hairstylists to quickly see the condition of your hair to determine into what hair treatments, products and styles which would be best for your hair and one of the important factor is that they need to feel the condition of your hair, so it very important to understand why we have implement this strategy for all activities within LACE models. www.warilace.com

So models, you can now see that this is all for your own best interest!

What do you do next, to keep going or quit?

Quit – Quietly United In Togetherness

To not give up

Question:

Why do we have two hands?

Is it not to guide each people other hands with your own hands as togetherness?

Sometime it not about following other people times, as they may not always be on your timetable or routine.

smallsteps

One step at a time in your own space of time is what you need, so within that small progress is happening without you visualising it and while you waiting to see the changes, you will be able to have time out to refocus as little at a time.

The term used: “It business and not to take it personally”, is a statement that needs to be revised.

Business is a personal matter as you are the business and you are proceeding within the business with passion, which come with feeling of loving what you want to do, so business do have some personally element within it.

Working with each other, there should be respectful behavior of conduct of approach within the work ethos.

Having a business in the early stage of growth is very remote and can be harsh on your soul and time.

Starting a business is not easy, it can and will alienate your friends, as they will see and think that you are travelling upward without them. This will cause a complexion feeling from them that you have left them behind, which is not the case.

The problem is that in the past you have been leisurely behind as it was not your time in whatever form and you and them had no problems within your friendship but as soon as you have step out in front it will became a problem. But what they do not understand is that you were all growing at different time and in different ambition and their growth may or had come to an end at a different stages and now it was your time to grown ahead.

Collaborate-for-success

Since they are your friends, you would have felt that there were and would be opportunities for them within their individual abilities to have a position within each other businesses but due to egotistical feeling they do not want be seen at a lower status than you. So the bottom line is that they will not support you fully to what you want them to do, so you have to be aware that you will lose a lots of friends and some friends will not even reinvested in monetary or time that you have invested into them. This is now called business term – not friendship.

Good versus badThere are good side of business and bad side of business as well.

You will have to be strong all the time and to control any stress and anger management that you may have.  You will have to handle it the best you can. Yes this may and can all affect you in a huge capacity and it would not matter if you are doing a great job or not!

 

What you will miss out for having a business:

  • Not much time for socially
  • Not enough time for entertaining with your children
  • No extra available monetary money to spend
  • No holidays

What is the end result?

  • Enjoying  creating your passion and working for yourself
  • Inspiring to help others into giving back to the next generation

Sending the ELEVATOR back down.

elevatorbuttondown   LACE Logo

There is a saying in sending the elevator back down. This saying interprets, as I am somebody.. Let the world know your name…LACE slogan.

“I believe that if you have been successful in whatever you wanted to do in your life, then it’s your contribution to facilitate a fraction of your time into sending the elevator back down to the next generation within their skills set and let them be a somebody for the world to know their name.

elevator 

I have tried on many occasions to tell people how much my experience has been shaped by those I have come across and that is what drives me now and motivates me today into helping the next generation. This is why we should continue to inspire those that follow behind us into helping the next generation into whatever their dream is.

Sending Elevator

The truth is…all of us can send the elevator back down because it doesn’t matter what floor you’re on – in life – there’s always someone just below – just waiting for the chance to be invited into whatever floor level. We should not discriminate as to whether they are not within your class groups or have a grammatical problem.

Groups

By you segregating that individual you will never know what the person will and can deliver within their undiscovered talent.” Wari LACE – Creative Director – Founder

What’s the point of this statement, you ask?

We at LACE would like to encourage everybody who is climbing, who have climbed the corporate ladder and the ones doing the hiring – to think of students and next generation into giving them opportunities into helping them with their skills set ambition.

 Success ladder

With the economy struggling like it has been, a newbie trying to make his or her way in the workforce might be like trying to get to the top of the shaad tower – a hidden door, a locked door and then lots of dizzy, spiralling stairs.

spiral-staircase

Please send the elevator down to pick up the next generation within their undisclosed talents knowledge so that they can start their own career and then one day they will be able to send the elevator back down to the next generation in waiting to achieve their dreams and for you to be proud of your involvement into assisting the next generation into accomplish their goal.
